From the Daily Dot

This horrifying but captivating documentary reveals how lax regulations of the $400 billion medical device industry have led to barely tested projects being approved onto the market – and how devastating the side effects can be for the patients who believe those devices will help them. Filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering (The Invisible War, The Hunting Ground) bring a sense of clarity and urgency as they unravel an aspect of the healthcare system many viewers might not know about. More than 70 million people have received medical devices over the past decade: That's everything from pacemakers and stents to birth control, to knee and hip replacements. You'll squirm.
