As a doctor, Zhiyuan Wang spent 30 years studying how to save lives. He never imagined that he would spend another 10 years investigating how Chinese doctors take innocent lives. 95% of his evidence comes directly from China.

But the truth shows that this frenzied killing machine, driven by huge profits, is still running rampant in society.
