What makes this nearly unbelievable story so ironic is that the 70 people subjected to injection with the same dirty needle were all employees of a pharmaceutical company that manufactures injectable drugs used to treat schizophrenia.
It doesn't get much weirder than that...
As Jim White, Mike's co-host of the Health Revolt broadcast featured on Red List News, notes in the opening segment of Episode 4, the story would almost be funny if it weren't so "absolutely tragic."
America's sick care system keeps profits alive, not people
This insane example is illustrative of the depths to which the American health care system - or as Mike calls it, the 'sick care system' - has sunk in recent years. How is it possible that a nurse licensed by the New Jersey Board of Nursing would even consider using the same syringe twice - much less 70 times?
The incident could lead to very serious health consequences for all involved. What makes it even scarier for the victims is that many of the diseases that may have been transmitted by the dirty syringe won't show up in blood tests for several months. Imagine how it must feel to have to wonder for several months whether or not you have contracted a deadly disease due to a nurse's horrendous incompetence?

But these are just a few small examples of how our 'sick care system' can make you sick - or even kill you! Just ask any veteran about the so-called health care system that waits soldiers when they return home injured or with a case of PTSD.
