The majority of antibiotics sold worldwide are made from active ingredients produced in countries like China and India. However, the pharmaceuticals made to cure people elsewhere, are causing great harm where it is produced. As seen in this documentary, the pharmaceutical factories in the outskirts of Hyderabad in India for decades have been discharging chemicals and antibiotics directly into the environment. Local people and organizations complain about destroyed groundwater, farmland and human health. Recently a Swedish scientist team have proved that the pollution of antibiotics from the factories even creates new, multi resistant bacteria in the environment. The scientist fear that these bacteria may spread to human infection diseases, adding to the already major problems of bacteria not responding to the antibiotics that the world has been dependent on since Penicillin was discovered in the early 1900's.
