I can also confirm that Bayer couldn't have possibly known the blood was tainted with Hep C either. According to Stanford University School of Medicine the virus wasn't even isolated until 1989.
'It becomes MURDER Bsl4doc, when BAYER CONTINUES TO MARKET THE TAINTED PRODUCT ONE SECOND AFTER THEY DISCOVER IT WAS TAINTED.'
Do you feel it is acceptable for Bayer to have continued to distribute and sell Factor VIII to asian markets after they were told by the US government to stop selling in the US because the product was tainted with HIV?

So you're telling my that, despite the fact that we had little to no knowledge of HIV, you are willing to base your opinion on a lawyer (because we all know lawyers don't lie for personal gain like fame, right?) who keeps saying the medicine was tainted without any evidence?
Just for comparison, HIV wasn't even DISCOVERED until 1984, and we didn't have any way to test for it's presence until about 6 months afterwards. So, remind me again how Bayer could have known that there was HIV in the medication from 1978 - 1985 as your video suggests?
The first AIDS cases in the United States were reported in 1981, but the illness was not referred to as "AIDS" until 1982.
Later that month [July 1982] the first reports appeared that the disease was occurring in Haitians, as well as haemophiliacs... In December a 20-month old child who had received multiple transfusions of blood and blood products died from infections related to AIDS. This case provided clearer evidence that AIDS was caused by an infectious agent, and it also caused additional concerns about the safety of the blood supply.
Murder is: the unlawful killing of another human person with malice aforethought, as defined in Common Law countries. Murder is generally distinguished from other forms of homicide by the elements of malice aforethought and the lack of lawful justification. All jurisdictions, ancient and modern, consider it a most serious crime and therefore impose severe penalty on its commission.
