Digging into the history of an infamous pharmaceutical scandal. It was said to be safe & effective. Sound familiar?
Dr Sam Bailey reveals the inside story on one of the biggest pharmaceutical scandals in history, the children of Thalidomide, and tells us how many of these same corporations are poised to repeat the same crimes again – unless vigilant citizens demand transparency and accountability from pharmaceutical firms and the government regulators who are meant to police them. History doesn’t repeat, but it rhymes. Watch:
