Death by Medicine a film by Gary Null
From the "blurb" on youtube:
Death By Medicine takes a hard examination at the dominant medical paradigm contributing to America’s health crisis.
Based on Gary Null’s ground breaking book on the hundreds of thousands of injuries and deaths caused by conventional medicine, the documentary looks at
-the medical industrial complex,
-the pharmaceutical industry’s usurpation of the nation’s medical schools, research, peer reviewed scientific journals,
-falsified drug clinical trials, and
-the complicity of federal health agencies to permit this to happen.
