Blood racket drained poor Indian workers

AP/Yahoo News, April 4, 2008
A case where captives were drained of their blood so it could be sold to private medical clinics raises serious concerns about the complicity of the medical establishment and the lack of proper oversight over hospitals and clinics in India. The case could become a problem for the country, which is becoming a leading destination for so-called medical tourism. Some 500,000 Americans travel overseas each year for medical treatment, according to the National Coalition on Health Care. Much of the medical tourism are for treks to Asian hospitals in Thailand, Singapore and India.
