These three reports amass shocking evidence that the international pharmaceutical industry preys on the sick, especially in developing nations. In one segment, Mike Wallace demonstrates that antifreeze produced in China was mislabeled as glycerin and then became an additive in children’s fever medicine sold in Haiti. 88 Haitian children died before American experts helped to identify the deadly additive. The second report focuses on how counterfeit and substandard medicines are shipped around the world with the unwitting help of the World Health Organization. The segment also features a high-level WHO executive, who had faked his credentials. The final report looked at the blood plasma industry and how companies manipulated the shortage of immunoglobulin to reap higher profits.
