This from 2013, and it is worse now:
Prescription drugs are currently responsible for more deaths annually than illegal drugs. According to ( former ) CDC director Tom Frieden,, “it’s a big problem, and it’s getting worse ..
Out of the 783,936 annual deaths from conventional medicine mistakes, approximately 106,000 of those are the result of prescription drug use . According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, two-hundred and ninety people in the United States are killed by prescription drugs every day
The infuriating part of this is that most of these drugs are band-aids .. They do nothing to address the cause, and doctors who prescribe indiscriminately have no desire to look for the cause ..
We have a customer here at our shop - she is an MD, spent time on active duty in the Air Force and is also an assistant professor at Robert Wood Johnson here in NJ ... She recently got her degree in acupuncture and has transitioned to holistic medicine .. She is a brilliant person, and she told me that, among other things, one thing that stuck in her mind when making the decision to give up conventional medicine was actually her experience in medical school ... There was no emphasis on healing, nutrition or finding the root cause .... In fact, she said the thing that was stressed all though school was "Keep the corpse alive" - quality of life be damned, as long as the beds were filled ..
I have a very good Doctor. She said to me very candidly once "Medication is very good at treating the symptoms." Is a healthy individual, a good customer, for Pharma?
