Fire In The Blood DVD Short Review

4 stars for this revelation packed documentary.Fire In The Blood cover
Fire In The Blood is an in depth look at the Western pharmaceutical industry and the way in which it manipulates global availability and costs of life saving drugs to further it's own interests.
