Money Talks exposes the questionable tactics that big drug companies use to make record profits by playing with the safety of our family’s health care. Using misleading advertising, attractive drug reps who wine and dine doctors and other unethical practices, the drug industry makes billions of dollars every year selling us unsafe, unnecessary and overpriced drugs.

There are over 80,000 pharmaceutical sales people employed in the pharmaceutical industry in the United States alone. My understanding is that that is about 1 for every 4 doctors. Their job is to sell drugs. Their job is not to educate doctors. Their job is not to provide medical information. They have one job and one job only: to push their product particularly against other competing products. Doctors should not trust them to give them unbiased and accurate information about their drugs, and frankly, doctors shouldn’t let them in their offices.

If you want to protect the people you love from their dangerous practices that compromise the safety and quality of our health care, Money Talks is a must-see film. More at www.moneytalksthemovie.com

ANTHRAX WAR is an investigative documentary about the 2001 U.S. Anthrax Attacks, a trail of dead scientists and the dark secrets of germ war research.

The film begins in the days following the 9/11 terrorist attacks when anthrax-laced letters, mailed to media offices in New York and to the U.S. Senate in Washington, spread fear and panic across the United States and beyond. Filmmaker Bob Coen probes troubling questions still surrounding the FBIs investigation of the 21st Centurys first act of biological terrorism.

The search for answers takes him from the United States to the United Kingdom, then to the edge of Siberia and Southern Africa and leads into an underworld in which leading scientists working with germs die under mysterious circumstances. The growing list includes Bruce Ivins, who the FBI claims was the only person behind the U.S. anthrax murders; Dr. David Kelly, the head of UK bio-defense; and Dr. Vladimir Pasechnik, an important Soviet defector.

The filmmaker penetrates what he comes to call the biological warfare mafia and uncovers the development of terrifying new weapons genetically mutated germs, some with the ability to target specific ethnic groups. In a rare interview, the man known as Doctor Death, who headed South Africas apartheid-era biological warfare program that developed germs aimed at the countrys black population, reveals that he received help from the U.S. and U.K. The filmmaker also learns that some of these germs may be for sale on the black market today.

ANTHRAX WAR goes on to reveal how the 2001 Anthrax Attacks have spawned a $60 billion dollar Bio-defense boom in which biological weapons research is now being conducted, with little oversight, by corporations and private labs in possible violation of international treaties and U.S. law. The film underscores how fear of terrorism combined with the lure of extraordinary profits may be leading to a global germ war arms race that could be hurtling the planet toward catastrophe.
