"The German group Bayer and three other labs will pay tens of millions of euros to hemophiliacs who accused them of having sold in the 1980s blood products contaminated with HIV, a source close to the deal told AFP."

www.cbsnews.com...

Bayer knowing sold HIV infected hemophiliac medicine to multiple countries.They pulled the medicine from the US markets and sold them in france and other countries. Then they get caught and afterwards sued for poisoning innocent people with the HIV virus.

Knowingly distributing HIV laced medicinal products should be punished by more than a lawsuit. It should mean permanently out of business and in prison.

It is funny how all of these so called conspiracy theories end up becoming conspiracy facts.

*puts tinfoil hat on* Maybe we aren't crazy after all?


And, the corporations better love us. Without us, they are nothing.

That article is two years old. And the story is much older than that.

The case occurred in the 1980s. At the time there was no method for screening the products for HIV so it is not correct to say that the contaminated products were knowingly distributed. This is not to say however, that Cutter Biological, the Bayer subsidiary, acted responsibly in not removing older, potentially unsafe product, from the market until 1985.

This is one of the companies that used to form IG Farben, still owned by the same original families, in fact there was talk of IG Farben being brought back.. IG Farben still exists to this day as a company in liquidation.

I guess they dont really see consequences the same way you might hope they would.

Thank you, I was thinking the same thing. The OP also worded this in such a manor that it seems Bayer intentionally allowed HIV + blood to be donated. Bayer failed to screen known high risk behavior from donors. At the time there was no HIV test available. Negligent yes, intentional, well no not really. There was very little known about HIV back then other than risk groups. So those at high risk of AIDS (they did not even know it was HIV that was the cause) should have been turned down as donors. This is not a conspiracy.
