I think the movie is about a conspiracy involving the pharmaceutical companies using Africans as test subjects and it sounds like they are dieing and
people are being killed to cover it up, and they are going to release the drug/drugs anyway even though there is a lethal side effect. I don't know
the plot yet, but thought it was interesting, and thought others might like to know.
I have no idea if there is any truth to it. But I do think the pharmaceutical companies are taking advantage of us and are contributing the high rate
of increase of health care costs. I'm referring to the USA of course; other countries get medicine cheaper than we do, like Canada for example.
It would not surprise me if this did happen. Pharmaceuticals have become the most profitable industry in this country, and they have covered up the
bad side effects from drugs before. They just pulled several off the shelves recently (cox 2 inhibitors like Celebrex), and I heard there was proof
that they knew there was a higher rate of stroke and heart attacks, but covered up the study, and continued to sell the drugs. Now that I think about
it, maybe the movie is based on this, but exaggerated.
I bet the drug companies are not too happy about this movie coming out.
