A film created on shame and false events regarding the discovery of insulin.
17 February 2016 | by mariusorionSee all my reviews

A film created on shame and false events regarding the discovery of insulin. So, if you are a diabetic and you're still alive, you should know who saved you, namely Prof. Dr. N.C. Paulescu ! You have no shame?! Insulin is discovered by N. C. Paulescu. This movie teaches people a lie ... propaganda distorts the history of medicine. How can you make movies like this when N.C. Paulescu is responsible for saving tens of millions of people from certain death.

The discovery of insulin by NC Paulescu is not stolen, is suppressed. Well, I read the original article by Nicolae Paulescu and I can say with certainty that he is the discoverer of insulin. I do not know how many actually bothered to compare the articles of Paulescu and Banting's ... but I did it. Not to mention the date of publication of the two articles.
