‘Here is another political scandal that will be swept under the multi-coloured carpet of deceit, chicanery and duplicity.
The Haemophilia Society has blown the whistle and called for an enquiry into its own failure and that of government, the pharmaceutical industry and clinicians.
From Political Cleanup: “Medics and politicians knew by the mid-1970s that commercially manufactured blood products from the USA were suspect. By the mid-1980s there were warnings of a similar situation in respect of HIV. Nevertheless these products continued to be imported and used. The lives of British haemophiliacs and other patients in need of a blood transfusion were blighted in the 1970s and 1980s by these cheap imported US blood products, harvested from inmates and drug addicts. More than 7,000 were infected and went on unknowingly to infect family and friends.”’
And we believe they care for our teeth.
