An Example of the Profit System Corrupting Health Care
4 September 2014 | by ben-98-143433See all my reviews

This movie hits home since my dad died of cancer when I was 13 and it upsets me tremendously to think that our overall health care system has been corrupted due to the profit system. The Hippocratic oath seems to be more focused on maintaining the status quo of profit versus curing medical problems.

** Movie Review ** An insider's account from the 70's at a well known NYC cancer research hospital exposing the truth (using the hospital's own records) behind how the profit system has corrupted the search for finding a "cure" for cancer. A promising treatment was swept under the rug and the scientist who found it (co-founder of chemotherapy) was forced to lie about his treatment. The treatment was not the "cure", but it worked remarkably well and very cheap. The problem was it was "very cheap". Even though the movie is centered around 1 character and it's almost entirely a narrative, the topic and the evidence is so damning, it's exciting. It's a knock-out punch guilty as charged for the hospital. Definitely recommended to all.
