Have you heard of a documentary currently in production called - Primum Non Nocere - First Do No Harm?

0 like 0 dislike

Primum Non Nocere - First Do No Harm' found itself inside the formation of another documentary. Starting with an entirely different project, the original concept 'Beijing Goes Bloodless', was short-listed for the Co-Production Challenge, at Mipdoc, in 2008.
 

The movie unfolds as world renowned experts share the latest scientific evidence - debunking claims that blood transfusions always save lives.

Millions of patients are now in danger from previously unknown risks associated with blood transfusions; for example the effects of DNA and chromosome transfers.

 

What are the long term implications of receiving other peoples' DNA or receiving chromosomes from the opposite sex after a blood transfusion? The film explores the controversial history of blood transfusions and the greatest obstacle facing global healthcare; the reflex rejection of new knowledge, because it contradicts entrenched paradigms.

Someone posted on another forum that  'Incredible blood documentary about to hit the world scene Spring 2012 in the Cannes Film Festival'  which would be great - however the Asiageographic group link mentions 2011 Asia Television Awards thus we 'wait with baited breath'   ;-)

Have heard of it. Someone elsewhere stated that it will be shown at the Cannes Film Festival (  unverified ).

However in any event it is to be released this Spring which means within next month or so.

  I would like to see what more Prof. Bruce Spiess, MD has to say on studies not done ( he has used almost identical wording for 4 years ) Plus I would like to hear the rest of Prof. Aryeh Shander, MD comment that "all you need to order this 'transplant ( transfusion ) ' is 2 letters after your name and a pen".

It is also interesting that a Russian surgeon is in the film - talking about techniques formulated to treat JW's, considering the level of official intolerance against JW's in Russia.
