The link below represents an article titled “Death by Medicine”. It was written by Gary Null, PhD; Carolyn Dean MD, ND; Martin Feldman, MD; Debora Rasio, MD; and Dorothy Smith, PhD.
Here is an excerpt from the above:
“A group of researchers meticulously reviewed the statistical evidence and their findings are absolutely shocking.4 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)…
…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.
The Nutrition Institute of America is a nonprofit organization that has sponsored independent research for the past 30 years. To support its bold claim that conventional medicine is America ‘s number-one killer, the Nutritional Institute of America mandated that every “count” in this “indictment” of US medicine be validated by published, peer-reviewed scientific studies.
What you are about to read is a stunning compilation of facts that documents that those who seek to abolish consumer access to natural therapies are misleading the public. Over 700,000 Americans die each year at the hands of government-sanctioned medicine, while the FDA and other government agencies pretend to protect the public by harassing those who offer safe alternatives.
End of excerpt…
We are fighting a “big evil”… there are simply no other words to describe Big Pharma and the conventional medical system that it controls.
I should know “big evil”… for ever since I first posted my son Willy’s original recovery story to the net (the first blog on this site) in June 2006, I have had a chronic and repetitive problem with any computer that I use to go online with at home, as a result of it being hacked into and disrupted.
In looking back at the timing of my difficulties with being on the net, it is a bit odd to me, as Willy’s original recovery story from ADHD and childhood bipolar symptoms really did not have a lot of meat in it vs. a great deal of material that I had been posting to the Internet for years. It was simply a heartfelt story written by a very grateful father, as my son had come so far in his recovery, a recovery based on simple common sense.
In honesty, I don’t know what is going on here in regard to my having computers professionally hacked into all of the time. Unfortunately, I do know that if I go online at home again, I will probably have great difficulties with any computer that I am using… and that these difficulties most probably will start on “day one”.
God help us if Big Pharma wins this battle that “we in alternative medicine” are involved in with it… for if Big Pharma does “win”, and healing nutritional supplements are legally taken away from us as a result of this, you can kiss the health of “our children and their children” goodbye.
