It takes money to try to hold Big Pharma accountable: Chuck Norris sues 11 drug companies for poisoning his wife
- Former model Gena Norris, 54, had three MRI scans in one week ‘several years ago’ to assess her rheumatoid arthritis
- She claims it left her weak, tired, with bouts of pain and a burning feeling
- Now Chuck Norris, 77, has filed a lawsuit against the drugmaker on behalf of his wife of 19 years
Action star Chuck Norris is suing 11 drug companies that he claims are responsible for poisoning his wife with a chemical used in MRI scanning.
Former model Gena Norris, 54, had three MRI scans in one week five years ago to assess her rheumatoid arthritis.
But she claims the dye used to improve the clarity of her scans – gadolinium – left her close to death, costing $2million in out-of-pocket medical fees, and says she has suffered permanent weakness, exhaustion, bouts of pain, cognitive issues and a burning feeling ever since.
Now movie star Chuck, 77, has filed a lawsuit on behalf of his wife of 19 years against a plethora of manufacturers who produce the contrast dye, including McKesson and Bracco, two heavyweights in the industry.
