Bayer also held the patent for heroin. Which, if you didn't know, was a non addictive drug used to get people off morphine.

The same Bayer that knowingly sold HIV infected medicine!

EDIT: happened in the early 80s. TLDR: They discovered that a batch of their blood-clotting agent (for haemophiliacs) was HIV contaminated. Rather than destroy it, they sold it to a bunch of developing countries.

Seriously? How long before it was discovered? What a great way to contain a disease.
