side effects mood swings and sweating in. after take. drugs. in the 1970 s. a new drug called factor 8 was released to using human blood it promised a much easier life for him affiliates they no longer needed to go to hospital and could self administered the treatment by injection at any time or convenient place . but it had one fatal flaw rebelled which patients knew nothing until too late. one. of your treatment might contain the donation of 4050000 people. a lot of products in the u.k. came from america and one of the things we now know is that the people giving those
. people who maybe were in prison. and they encouraged to give that. to provide the. documents this is a result showing that you were 8 feet 3. years and you were. not were you told that you were being. quote region. because. it's an article supports of side. because sometimes you want. and you roll your own
call and if i didn't have these on i would have very probably through one girl's. like other hemophiliacs martin has problems with joints mainly his knees and elbows caused by internal bleeding. i was diagnosed with in a full year about the age of 6 months old. growing go with him earlier back then for a pair it was a nightmare children there always running falling over banging themselves and i would have all kinds of internal bleeds and damage to my joints. martin was under constant medical care 1st at birmingham children's hospital and of your age of 17 he was sent to an adult facility. i remember being in the white america and my name is called out now the doctor doesn't even introduce himself his
1st words were hello i see you're a child people i didn't understand the significance of what he was saying because i was a healthy teenager a my words to him were all well that's a lot. even goes on to say that your life for the next 2 years and then i said what do you mean by that. and he goes you got 2 years to live. that's when it hit me. so we rode back to birmingham and got a letter that says on it that i was tested in 1900. without my knowledge i was found to be h. on the positive but it also says that i found an old sample of my blood from a man tonight and i was positive then. but i could have been working on why i could have been sleeping with somebody and it would have more to fall on me if i have
infected a girl what gives them doctors the wrong to play god what about a risk or the people's laws why didn't they tell me. in 1981 i knew had previously unheard of disease was discovered in the united states acquired immune deficiency syndrome aids. in january 982 with the 1st hemophiliacs contracted aids in the us no in more cases have been recorded by the end of the year 8 of which were terminal. despite this great britain continue to import american factories. are you proud of your all the new jump. up and lots of you call him a for. ever jerry jerry j.j. sure.
my dad lived with him ophelia. really did all one thing aim affiliates again is way out of the time it was kind of an odd thing the song people. say here with area warnings and they are carpenter using these huge saws and swinging. wood around the shop the things. you know that sick let me go i was. crazy. i'm very thankful he told those videos because it's the evidence why memory doesn't have. kids he was a father to me and he raised me and was doing everything a father should do. towards the late seventy's he sees concentrates because that as with adults is just on
him and everyone i'll see use. may 1983 so the 1st reported case of the british hemophiliac contracting the disease. appeared in the press claiming that factor 8 was a safe. in november of 84 he raised concerns about the products with he stopped and they told him this is just sensationalism it's fine you know don't worry they convinced him to carry on using fats concentrate and then it was only shortly after that the his 1st choice b. tests came back as. things just became very difficult for a strain on the relationship with my mom you know they'd only got married and nothing their life went from being one of planning for the future to planning for the end. he took to new
statements about one of the worst things being the feeling of sticking that. with relation to. her chair in the early turks who christer people don't get very sick for you or. doubts that he was positive felt such fear never felt little it's not the fear of what he might suffer it's it's social it's everything it's children it's housing it's your careers everything is gone it was something to be ashamed of even though we did nothing wrong he did nothing wrong i'd bring a prominent lawyer locally and then one night i walked into a pole to play mama and the landlord just pointed out me and said you get out
the pool team i've been playing with by all still they're not one of them tried to be for me i hope sick. and i thought dead. this was a classic case of. lymphoma it. doesn't take away the fact that it made me feel a lot rubbish. my dad lost his job among got such and her job they received hate mail phone calls making fun of the stigma is incredible it's this whole thing though if you had a zoom you a gay or you were a drug user or some kind of what they sold to be an desirable person. by
9190 nights a he'd become wario. he had progressed to a it's only opportunistic infections using off way slowly going through a horrible death. and. by the end of my 3. news news that. jason evans founded the independent campaign group factor 8 its members of the immediate relatives of him affiliates who died because of contaminated blood products his organization provides them with legal help. i really only had one goal when i got involved in campaigning on this subject i wanted it tell on the official record that what happened could and should have been avoided i think after that
point maybe there's room for that as support for people counseling and compensation and all these other things but i think for me. once it's on the record that there is life. and then all. trace. gapping of the spread is widening and what i call the interest rate apartheid if you're in the wrong side of the trends of geoffrey epstein you end up in him bantustan of extortion ery credit card rates if you're a friend of jeffrey abstain then you get the insider rate of negative and you get paid to lend money or to borrow money excuse me from from the bank.
seemed wrong. just don't hold. me to get to shape out these days become active. and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. in this community there are people who believe that it's ok. it's really hard there are no jobs and you see that i've got kids that ask and as a parent. i can come up with lots of arguments there's a lot of conflict within the game between the 2 teams most of the conflict i would say revolves around money and most of them money is made. close one on each other.
each other is good business the state of california alone makes $6000000000.00 a year of prison complexes you get some 20 alive where. you don't care. so you don't care about anything. you know world of big movies law and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's taught critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. we can see which perhaps most clearly documented
a 10th of september 1976 so very soon after you would sing it with them and we can see the words hepatitis ring. the existence of embrace could have it's like something you or your parents were aware. we have a cash cow and that is dari alfonzo mongery has died. he's died. he's died on lost one of the page service cherish unpaid change dard. busy at 11 years of age richard went to trial lawyers college a special boarding school for children with disabilities. there's an n.h.s. health center on the campus students could receive the medical care they needed and attend classes all in the same place. it's also the signs of the greatest
concentration of contaminated blood cases that the u.k. has ever seen. ready busy what it. is that you receive significant quantities of fats are a sort of prophylactic base. they're a crazy approach to us aren't to we have target joints and that was my left mate in the right. for our current system why they would give me consecutive doses day after day. great britain will be self-sufficient in blood products and will guarantee their purity. it was the government's promise in the 1970s. when government came in that pledge in the name went away and they found a way around the. importing this particular product. all these issues were very often the meetings of 1015 people but they were all held in
secret no one was allowed to publish the the minutes of the meetings. the main beneficiaries of that secrecy were pharmaceutical companies. these companies had a huge financial motivation to sow these problems today. the fact concentrate market is a 1000000000 dollar industry in order for me to say our product is safer than this company they needed a trial date that showed we've used this product and it's not infectious and in this country at least the doctor is. often as consultants to the pharmaceutical home as there are numerous documents showing that doctors in oxford doctors in cardiff work keen to test facts or a concentrates infectivity on their patients to all hemophilia since directors.
initial production batches may have been tested for infectivity by injecting them into chimpanzees it is unlikely that the manufacturers will be able to guarantee this form of quality control for all future batches it is therefore very important to find out why studies in human beings to what extent the infectivity of the various concentrates has been reduced. the reason they used humans instead of chimpanzees was one because chimpanzees were expensive and essentially patients were free when they don't know their partner experiment we tried to speak to the pharmaceutical companies that produced factory took the time over the last 50 years they have changed names and ownership several times and none wanted to talk about the contaminated blood issue now. what we know now is that the trolls are also conducting tests regularly and keeping records of liver function tests which made you think ok so what are they actually looking for figuring in
a safe product to be one to monitoring how you live. your pretend times or if you trace their rules are you cd for kanwar with looking at these things. out of the 80. 90 of affiliates who went to train those college 72 died. and people are still dying. or from liver related problems to have a charge say. i actually feel guilty i'm still here i asked myself the question why am i still alive when you know 70 percent of the hang for that boy use . college. i've had and i don't care and i'm always question yourself why me i why am i saying i live by being allowed to live when so many have and.
the official claim was that the new medicines were safe the most emphatic statement to that effect was from kenneth clark health secretary under margaret thatcher's government. i think someone that really has a lot to answer for as a minister is. the well known kenneth clarke or at least open parliament and said there is no conclusive proof. is transmitted through blood products he really needs to answer for putting out that type of misinformation and this was the reply we received from kenneth clocks office and krista clark has chosen to decline this request and from the u.k. department of health the infected blood inquiry is a cabinet of its leaders and therefore they will be the ones best placed to answer
your questions beyond that initial acknowledgement the cabinet office has not responded to our request. and all we could find on the official u.k. national health service website was a report mentioning that victims are entitled to apply for compensation. 2019 and for the 1st time the u.k. government agreed to hear what the victims had to say a public inquiry was opened in london and jason evans group factory is taking part in it is finally happening it's been a long road and this is a this train journey is one that i say him countless times over the last 34 years. even before jason was born his father was aware of the deadly disease. in spite of the risk of passing on the contamination his baby was born in.
and think about how would i have dealt with what my dad went. next year i'll be the same age my dad was when he died. i think about if i used. it next year that age that would have been really very short life. that weighs heavily on my mind. oh in 1918 only tina and. yes. accident shall we say. a word i knew pretty soon after and she went to see.
where we were advised really in no uncertain terms not care to look at. it was all in those few months so mixed together and at the time we were still reeling from the shock and the implications of dealing with the times now sis i could have been positive in which case what would we you know. being an approach child at that time to be in often if you come into the world we didn't know how long we have all the child could have been positive as well this me in which case was it morally right to give birth to a child that i suffered terribly i couldn't walk away from a man who are supposed to love. just when he needed me most and once we found out that i was ok afterwards. he. realized that if i was going to be a mother it wouldn't be with richard and i just say with richard he said you're
a perfect stream really loving and supportive wife yes she's shifting journey. as it. assists a great sadness to you base this being that you have to have children. a problem if there. really. anything you would. you. have to say at the time it seemed easy i didn't feel as if we had any choice. only lazy if. it was. but hey.
martin baird was also thinking of starting a family his girlfriend was a nurse at the hospital where he received his treatment. i've got the dalai lama of hemophilia boston out on the don lemon or if they not just infecting her but possibly possibly on to children as well so i took the decision after about a year to split tilt so that i would feel a she could go off and have a family of our on and thankfully she did and we're still friends on facebook you know and she seems happy which is good. missionary very apt alfre bay and not such a. very loyal dogs rottweilers are. very protective as well.
was. one of the greatest comfort she can ever offer. because she can have the lousiest day in the world when you walk in that house and the dogs pleased to see you. dogs know when you're in i know when you're in trouble. it's soothing. the. 2 attempts were made over 40 years to investigate the causes of this medical disaster in the u.k. but so far no one has been held accountable. for the current inquiries goal is to gather evidence the final decision about how to proceed after that will wrist with the government. i have no doubt that what happened was criminal i think the real
question is to walk degree was a criminal i mean nothing a bad minimum we're talking about some form of criminal negligence and perhaps corporate manslaughter. perhaps as high as my i think the inquiry can help direct in some way where those lines made. their criminal prosecutions have been brought in other countries and they have been successful particularly in france whether they will be brought in this country i suspect not the reason they won't bring them the crown prosecution service won't be directed to bring those prosecutions it's because it's widely accepted that they would be successful and the only way they can avoid a successful prosecution is to avoid bringing it. the public inquiry is expected to continue for at least 2 to 3 years too late for the
victims who have already died and to long for those still fighting for their lives every day morning. first witnesses. he was so fried. i was told about a year to live it was a dark time frightful experience it wasn't a life. really treasure exams anymore because we would be dead in a few years so we will actually. i do feel conduit. come out. check him out the else 20. tome just want to sit down the house hard enough is no way should have to do that we just wanted to be with them. and i believe now is the time to do is to say. we are small is
and going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. in this community there are people who believe that it's ok. it's really hard there are no jobs and you see that i've got kids and asked to eat and as a parent. i can come up with lots of arguments and there's a lot of conflict within the game and between the teams most of the conflict i would say overall is around money and most of their money is made. close one on each of those he know each other is good business the state of california alone makes $6000000000.00 a year of prison complex just to get some 20 alive where. you don't care and one of
my hair is a monster so your hair might anything. what politicians do sometimes even. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or somehow want to. have to go right to be press this is like the full story in the morning can't be good that i'm interested always in the waters of our. first signal. we're.
going to. look at it. midday here in moscow an event coming up presidents want to crawl into them approach it and give it up for a new talks the french leaders but it's a radio residence play today with a crazed syria and iran and all the gender put across it also has a legal problem getting to machine double talk promotion a blistering attack of the new york times as leaked borneo now suggests that his editors have been looking for new ways to cover the president after 2 years of fixating on russia. on his journeys green party enjoys a surgeon called the support of late we take a look at one of the most ambitious yet very controversial proposals coming up.
