The Bleeding Edge: behind the terrifying new Netflix documentary
The $400bn medical device industry is exposed in a horrifying look at a string of products that have wreaked havoc on patients
A terrifying new documentary carries a stark warning that a nightmare has been lurking in the medical industry for decades and it might be in your body.
“If we can’t change the laws and we can’t convince companies to put moral issues above profits, then all of us really have to be vigilant,” said The Bleeding Edge’s producer, Amy Ziering. “My great hope is you watch this film and then you are really, really, really careful and ask a lot of questions and do a lot of research.”
Millions of people have been harmed by medical devices and millions more will if nothing is done.”
But this success is not enough for either film-maker and they hope the public, lawmakers and medical community will push for change in the industry.
