• The #1 cause of death and injury in America is medical errors…784,000 people die from medical mistakes. Over 2.2 million people are injured every year by prescription drugs alone and over 20 million unnecessary prescriptions are prescribed of antibiotics annually for viral infections. (A 7 Year study Nutritional Institute of America- October 24, 2003 Deadly Medical Mistakes Exposed, Gary Null (646)505-4660 x 155)
• 7.5 million unnecessary medical and surgical procedures are performed every year and 8.9 million people are needlessly hospitalized annually. Consider this quote; “I was completely shocked, amazed and dismayed when I first added up all the statistics on medical death and saw how much allopathic medicine has betrayed us.” Carolyn Dean, MD, a physician and author who helped uncover findings for this study.
• “It is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. (783,936 costing 282 billion).” NIA October 24, 2003
I find the results of this report unacceptable and a disgrace. You may ask, “How can this be happening to us?” Part of the problem is that the government, colleges and the medical universities are financially controlled by big Pharma. Many doctors from the medical camp are aware of the catastrophic problem facing this country. Dr. Lucian L. Leape wrote an article called Error in American Medicine, The Journal of American Medical Association 1994: “The number of people who die from “Iatrogenic” medicine is equivalent to over 10 jumbo jets crashing every day.” Jerome Kassirer MD, former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine stated, “Americans are over medicated, taking far too many drugs, most of which they don’t even need and they are paying too much for them.” It is public knowledge that the drug Vioxx is responsible for 88,000 to 139,000 reported stroke or heart attacks with 78,000 deaths (Merck) and the drug Prozac causes increased propensity to violence (54 million people use worldwide) Eli Lilly has no problem admitting it . Dr. Robert Lusetich 12/16/04 exposed how well organized this market is: They have 87 thousand pharmaceutical sales reps and spend billions to wine and dine over 700,000 doctors in this country. Wow! Imagine that sales force.
