America has the most technologically advanced health care system in the world, yet preventable medical harm has become one of the leading causes of death, and the overwhelming majority of high-risk implanted devices never require a single clinical trial.

In THE BLEEDING EDGE, Academy Award nominated filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering (THE INVISIBLE WAR, THE HUNTING GROUND) turn their sights on the $400 billion medical device industry, examining lax regulations, corporate cover-ups, and profit driven incentives that put patients at risk daily.  Weaving emotionally powerful stories of people whose lives have been irrevocably harmed, the film asks: what life-saving technologies may actually be killing us.

The Bleeding Edge can  be watched on Netflix

  1. My family and I watched the doco this pm and would recommend everyone seeing it.
    Not just for the mesh part but for how the fda and big phama get away with so much. Lots I could say but the words ANGER, HURT and BETRAYL would definately be there. I have known that a lot is covered up by big pharma but Ifeel the fda needs big changes as well.
