Great eye opener, even working in the medical field!
I have been a Registered Nurse for over 18 years, and I agree this is a HUGE problem we are facing! I will also say (as a medical professional), that until this film, I was not aware there were "loopholes" allowing medical devices to piggyback off of studies that frankly do not apply, and even those studies that were completed lacking in actual data. We are trained that medications and devices go through stringent testing to be considered "safe", and sadly that appears to no longer be the case.
I will be encouraging everyone I know to watch this film, but wholeheartedly agree with the "safety warnings" at the end of the film:
Know what is being placed in your body, and how long it's been available on the market
Ask for second or even third opinions
Ask your surgeon how many times they've performed the specific operation you're undergoing, and
Have a family member or friend act as your advocate while incapacitated by surgery.
