since entailed a certain risk they encourage donors to lie about their health. such compensation also attracts a high risk population that sometimes has secrets to hide. but . i know enough to use computers no no no. if i was lying when i had tubes over two years old it looks like it's part of the bricks but it actually is what i miss in a blue faint make it look like i'm doing hair on the side. you know i have the science on though we will go in the money and it's a drill. just next first a less summer to big bang around here. and so you know me even if they was the test for drugs they don't show up you're. hot for about three to five minutes
a day you chase and again. you know you got away to the next couple days backed out in the past three months. i give up this blast so i can get their fix everybody i feel their body with this way i see the people selling drugs they are used to this they love because simple fact that means walk the pharmacy there even if you know even if. they clientele gas somewhere to go every time they make some money ok listen. you give me your car your plasma car. i'll give you a bag. because i know you go is going to get loaded on there i'll go make sure that you go down because i'm not going to take no type of losses i won't drop you off in there i'm drop you off there make sure you get into your pay work and anomalies because i know. i normally give my money for sure and when you don't you can come
back again we do the same process again. and this is how the blood business attracts the drug business and all that goes with it trafficking exploitation and health risks for the donors. is octu farmer aware of all this we wanted to ask them if they noticed traces of drugs in their donors plasma. but it's still impossible to get access tensions rise the security services asked us to leave which we did. why was our presence bothering them so much. you know they don't like us to ensure that you're dead or yeah maybe you know walk because they don't know something that they something they do all right ok i'll know what the hell's going all well for you guys to be
professionally with your cameras to interview this place i mean what do you got di . we're doing t.v. documentary. about class and class not doing ours their complaint that they call it complain that if they felt like you were harassing the arrests in the dorms coming out management just advise that they want you guys you guys trespassing which means if you walk out of the parking lot they will have their security sign charges against you guys for trust that's fine but they thank you very much yes very much. back in switzerland there are many questions about compensation exploitation and concern about donors how does all this affect the drugs we use what control do we have over imported plasma. first of all we wanted to see tamara to show her our images. around here state. there are no
children even if they were not for drugs. and i don't approve create the best. week said it clearly show. it. to seek out pay ok i mean plug this. up a good arm and throw at the district to have the. yeah obviously you also pay through the national lake and lake on lake at eight a you'll already be feeling disturbed that lake at this whole thing. you know. this to cut the slope that. this is.
the swiss medical experts reassured us that the plasma for swiss drugs didn't come from pay donors. was interviewed at all to. the. front of all to talk about. it all that is still i'm sure that. all those those blogs small cold. opals. it's all to spend going to see the. savages is it as unique i don't know i mean i mean both. the top of the spending and the don't have a hit you know that as. of this initial the submission to the. rights for all the continuous bits out. north and you mary.
industry terms the money paid to donors is compensation not payment a play on words in germany for example donors may receive a small fee which is limited to three times a month but the fees offered in the usa are much higher enough to let the poorest survive. feel sick and keep it that people often sometimes don't do the best match they. do and you know that's not the fancy. that is irish this is and if i'm not so good and he's produced in the us the truth and if. he spent it in the media about itself if you didn't need to us the house and. a system c.e.o. of. a plasma master file a several hundred page document in which the origin of the plasma is listed countless technical details but nothing about the reality visibly the swiss medic
experts don't know more about it was if it is as you know assault clinic the dome. was it doesn't eat this is said by example. which i think also it's best. not in. this. book does it make sense for the legislator to ask so few questions the industry hides behind the trade secrets keeping the authorities in the dark. and. the socialist congressman j.f. steer is an expert in the swiss health system he finds the pharmaceutical industry's lack of transparency an acceptable. peace to sell it. at a sample of points you. made yeah. that's a table that suits all swine and at any difficult. you get to see the need for the
stronger stuff to last opacity profits lack of monitoring to what extent is public health at risk through this system what threats does it pose to patients and donors. daniel t. so dean of the faculty of medicine of lowe's and university has long been head of the city's blood center although he was generally reassuring he pointed out the risks as. madden any thinking. or me. failed to get me. to do. a better shot. at that. party. if that. zero risk doesn't exist.
as we are reminded by the scandal of contaminated blood that hit europe including the swiss red cross and france. and i think you. need only enough don't get. did. feel the need to acknowledge you all three you don't want. to mean it out of your. music after the scandal sanitary checks were increased world wind. plasma pools are now cleaned using methods that are said to be highly efficient. new sort of stuff it will. suit need you can use. to show. me that you disagree. who are is a him a toilet. in legal he's head of the blood center for the north of france the
largest transfusion center in france he's one of the people traumatized by the blood contamination scandal in aid to. africa and the that division in its most. minute oh yes what it just is holed up in to do so in a very measured nic and you've got to fix your piece to keep it. simple. and you know keep in. mind. is this it makes no sense to people people are going to just. you know that's. the ministry. in the city. today the checks are considered effective at least as far as known risks are
concerned but if there was a new virus slipping through we could spread more quickly due to globalization. to reduce these risks wouldn't the best way be for each country to produce its own plasma that would be preferable according to the world health organization self-sufficiency is definitely one of the aims that show promotes in terms of the goal that countries are trying to get to the goal is not self-sufficiency soley for self-sufficiency sake it's because systems that are self-sufficient tend to be safer and tend to provide better access but there are many parts of the world that are not self-sufficient and have to depend on outside sources for for blood donation and so for us it's an aim that much of the world needs to work towards but we're not there yet. however much the w.h.o. may state the importance of self-sufficiency the. world market isn't following the
u.s. is exporting more plasma and soon europe won't be able to do without this cheap raw material. in many parts of the world they've made decisions two in particular in europe and several countries some scandinavian countries france are making decisions to. basically privatized or to move into a private management of these types of of donation systems. i'm john harshman and i'll give you what the mainstream media can't the big picture will go deeper investigate and debate all so you can get the big picture. rejected tonight is a comedy gold and not the fact by the corporate media. would you go after the
corporations that just more your live profit over people at. the data it's not for me it's like medicine it's like a cancer from all the stress that the news but still under redacted tonight is a show where you can go to cry from laughing about the stuff that's going on in the world as opposed to just regular crying we're going to find out what the corporate mainstream media is not telling you about how we're going to filter it through some satirical comedic lenses to make it more digestible that's what we do every week hard hitting radical comedy news like redacted tonight is where it's at.
as. despite the chicks being in place the experts cannot rule out the possibility of a new virus this fear for health care is a main feature of the new was in france in july two thousand and fifteen the farmer obtained the liberalisation of the market the swiss company was authorized to sell its plasma and the drugs derived from it to all french hospitals until van the french blood center had had the monopoly this intrusion is worrying michelle most said he the director of the powerful federation of volunteer donors. will be in it and are you going to show that she didn't you don't. that's the
individual and you can see with this refusal. to quit a futile epis its own once on the now. i said just because i thought that that's it scientists is that. say fool. or you'll be all new to she's also not the only reason i called don't. reduce to good to now what would you make us good. do need to put me off well on this was some poor soul you don't know if you don't put me off work even posters you don't even you are you but as most of us just not all of us my own only when you vote. who are going to be so sick sit on the cubit i can call. the city or state that you have to be kidding me to come on. or not is i tell her no it's all she sees i tell her no just wanted i bought the mr t. he couldn't remember rip the small o.p. only today up against the office if you leave. me to. a particular ship
a small bit of all false don't cycle social read to me come on getting big smile or he ended up i copy the files make it now they cost money when you look but don't know it. because this one on my own cheek he will see by most it doesn't. depress mouth the most if it will feel the need to come up. yet to show you this only pass you off on ski cross i mean exhibit them. as completely in. just about school or far out here sharkey's hope he goes to about your device. didn't assume straws couldn't get the field made the game oh. they had to. get all of. their kids. let's look at dr spock you might notice him so mr obama played on to. that sort
of get that son might get a mess you will tune feel totally neat on as you do new quick look less mock you see how he had a fabric the suppressed muscles on the. oh close he ended up being you know. market liberalisation increased sanitary risks what does act of pharma have to say in response to these fears after many months of investigation and countless requests the company still refuses any interview. we went to their headquarters located in the time in the canton shits. on the issue in my book. it is a kind of a. yapping. about if. it. will have an office if that was your mind if you're
just on our properties the only the best thing to do is if you could leave the building at the moment and in as thomas sit we will consider your questions and come back with us with through the appropriate through the appropriate channels ok so you will answer my questions we will as you wish you just said that you will answer all questions. upon the police's request our camera man left the premises. the head of communications asked us to ask our questions in writing promising us he passed them on to the shareholders. clearly nothing is decided without the approval of market share the founder and single owner of dr pharma. the company doors closed to us once more. we had a long list of questions not only with regard to the sanitary risks but also the
company's methods. on the plasma markets up to pharma isn't the most important player but it's a. they've already reached one point five billion euros and are sorry its business practices have often rounds the authorities suspicions and. notes on the many associating through this without this get you to be. in the zone. at the end of two thousand and fifteen the former portuguese prime minister was arrested for corruption. allegedly received funds from iraq to farmer when he was a consultant in brazil where the swiss company was involved in a huge case known as the blood vampire scandal aka pharma is suspected of bribing ministry of health officials the case has still not been judged and the company
continues its activities in brazil. such political connections are worrying the french donor federation. has first hand experience of the swiss company sensibility over this matter. not us how we could to help my. new family to need to. have a. nice little to. book a. machine id she did a potted plant called new old weapon in moline gregor the place you don't defeat us us city folk to have us we must also nadya's you must look these. key a new to me see lucy and he and if you should put east. a seal he. why he don't use alternate earth. that he he he. should not
get it cecil quickly. he or she had it she shouldn't about either the mission not to disappear not to the queen and yes deep. no way that if you know. she could have all seen it before see my exact take up with. developments is ultimately. when we visited the headquarters to find the promised answers to our questions few weeks later the head of communications informed us that none of them would be answered without explaining why. there was only one solution left travel to heidelberg both gone margaery is home.
grown logon to me tell. me to get it it's been for the nines on my list. i know. i don't. visit gong margaery was incommunicado he asked the police to let us know couldn't hack. it doesn't. sleep in them on the. left yeah please. just. so our questions will remain unanswered the origin of the plasma it's payment the risks linked to donor poverty drug detection and the likelihood of new epidemics.
why doesn't dr pharma provide. any answers to the questions of tomorrow and thousands of patients. out of nineteen if. i'm cleveland sidewalks these questions seem to reserve. selling their plasma will always be a lesser evil to those with no choice. for as long as people in europe and elsewhere need plasma the pharmaceutical industry will meet their demand. to see america everything has to be rationed on. what outlining nothing will. you see when the market crashes everything shuts down
no government checks. so what can we do not the plasma my still be running let's go get a couple dollars out of right wing tap these are real. the film what they want to know that. mark was relieved he could finally give his plasma and he received twenty dollars. below is your blood pressure it was pretty good i wrote it down it was less than you have to. so you know it was one twenty nine over eighty two which is pretty good what are you going to do now do you want to go home and rest yeah i pretty much want to take it slow i was thinking about me to go home or regroup might take a quick power nap you know that got a thing. mark and tamara are connected by an invisible thread and.
the plasma industry means their distress. inseparable. them a clerical craft is he should same he would enter that especially don't commit such matt smith that makes. me to shame. to see. if you know i'm also. a bit down kitty does it tell us of a new book anybody's. crude don't recall and accept the. goal to be neighbor doc she don't accept the. i don't we're on the bob due to frame the shift is already a reality the blood of the poor going into the veins of the rich. few. days.
it's called the feeling of. every the world should experience. and you get it on the old the old. the old according to just. look at the modern world cup i am sure there are. good politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to express injury. or somehow want to. have to go right to the press this is like the full story in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the lawyers in the house. so i should more.
i think the average viewer just after watching a couple of segments understands that we're telling stories that our critics can't tell and you know why because their advertisers won't let them. in order to create change you have to be honest you have to tell the truth parties able to do that every story is built on going after the back story to what's really happening out there to the american public what's happening when a corporation makes a pharmaceutical chills people when a company in the environmental business ends up polluting a river that causes cancer and other illnesses they put all the health risk all the dangers out to the american public those are stories that we tell every week and you know what they're working.
