Netflix is exploring The Bleeding Edge of America’s medical industry with its new documentary.
The groundbreaking film examines how a profit-driven multibillion-dollar medical device industry puts patients at risk daily. America has the most technologically advanced health care system in the world, yet medical interventions have become the third leading cause of death, and the overwhelming majority of high-risk implanted devices never require a single clinical trial.
Academy Award nominated filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering (The Invisible War, The Hunting Ground) turn their sights on this $400 billion sector, examining lax regulations, corporate cover-ups, and profit driven incentives that put patients at risk daily. Weaving emotionally powerful stories of people whose lives have been irrevocably harmed, the film asks: what life-saving technologies may actually be killing us?
The film premieres on Friday 27th July. Here’s the trailer:
The Bleeding Edge is available on Netflix UK, as part of a £7.99 monthly subscription.
