Death by Medicine
Something is wrong when regulatory agencies pretend that vitamins are dangerous, yet ignore published statistics showing that government-sanctioned medicine is the real hazard.
Until now, we could cite only isolated statistics to make its case about the dangers of conventional medicine.
No one had ever analyzed and combined ALL of the published literature dealing with injuries and deaths caused by government-protected medicine.
That has now changed.
A group of researchers meticulously reviewed the statistical evidence and their findings are absolutely shocking.
These researchers have authored a paper titled “Death by Medicine” that presents compelling evidence that today’s system frequently causes more harm than good.
This fully referenced report shows the number of people having in-hospital, adverse reactions to prescribed drugs to be 2.2 million per year.
The number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections is 20 million per year.
The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million per year.
The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million per year.
The most stunning statistic, however, is that the total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine is an astounding 783,936 per year.
It is now evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the US. (By contrast, the number of deaths attributable to heart disease in 2001 was 699,697 while the number of deaths attributable to cancer was 553,251.5)
We placed this article on our website to memorialize the failure of the American medical system.
By exposing these gruesome statistics in painstaking detail, we provide a basis for competent and compassionate medical professionals to recognize the inadequacies of today’s system and at least attempt to institute meaningful reforms.

Natural medicine is under siege, as pharmaceutical company lobbyists urge lawmakers to deprive Americans of the benefits of dietary supplements.
Drug-company front groups have launched slanderous media campaigns to discredit the value of healthy lifestyles. The FDA continues to interfere with those who offer natural products that compete with prescription drugs.
These attacks against natural medicine obscure a lethal problem that until now was buried in thousands of pages of scientific text.
In response to these baseless challenges to natural medicine, the Nutrition Institute of America commissioned an independent review of the quality of “government-approved” medicine.
The startling findings from this meticulous study indicate that conventional medicine is “the leading cause of death” in the United States .
Medical mistakes result in the deaths of about 10,000 Australian patients every year, a report has revealed.
The authors of the national study say the patients are among more than 250,000 Australians killed or injured each year as a result of what hospitals call “adverse events”.
Many of the deaths are hastened by only short periods and about half occur in the very sick and aged, according to the Australian Patient Safety Foundation.
Another study found that more than 80,000 hospital admissions each year were caused by medications, with almost 70 percent of them avoidable.
A report out this week from the US Institute of Medicine (IOM) estimates that 1.5 million Americans are being injured each year as a result of prescribing mistakes related to medications. The report also suggests that 7000 people continue to die each year as a result of wrongly prescribed or errors related to medications.
According to the report, mistakes in giving drugs in hospitals are so common that, on average, a patient can expect to be subject to a medication error each day he or she remains hospitalised. The errors are costing more than $3.5 billiion each year.
