Bad Medicine is the first UK produced film exposing the true human cost of animal experimentation. Although many people believe that vivisection is a 'necessary evil', essential to the well-being of themselves and their loved ones, the reverse is actually the case; that basing human medicine on the false methodology of animal experimentation is a major cause of untold human suffering and death.
This is the film that the BBC would show you if it were not bed-fellows with the vivisection industry itself, and this film was made in order to go some way to redressing the torrent of pro-vivisection propaganda which has poured forth from the vivisection syndicate and the industry-beholden media - the BBC in particular - over the past several decades Though to informed people this situation is understandable, a much more worrying fact is that this is the sort of film that should have been made, and widely distributed, many years ago by the wealthy 'anti-vivisection' organisations in the UK, but has instead been left to a small, under-funded group. This speaks volumes.
Bad Medicine exposes: The devastating toll in human lives because of animal 'safety-tested' drugs. The basic scientific reasons why animal research cannot help people How human health is declining despite the billions spent on animal research How the cancer industry is not interested in genuine cancer treatments. The real reasons for the decline of the infectious diseases. That vivisection continues because of the vast amount of money at stake How the media and politicians both benefit from vivisection's continuation How many within the medical profession are opposed to vivisection Why animal testing is used as a scapegoat when drugs kill or injure How vivisection is the cause of an out-of-control 'health-care' expenditure Why vivisection is responsible for the poisoning of our air, food and water That vivisection has never been shown to be relevant to human beings.
Bad Medicine (DVD only) is 45 minutes long, and contains interviews with: Mat Fraser, actor Dr Monheim Fadali Dr Tony Page, author of Vivisection Unveiled Pat Rattigan, BAVA director and naturopath The BAVA is making the film available at a reasonable cost in the hope that this will encourage people to purchase the film.
