More On Deaths By Doctors, Drugs and Hospitals!

I thought I would do one last post in this series on the atrocious situation in America today concerning the death and mayhem caused by drug side effects, drug interactions, hospital mistakes and doctor caused fatalities. It is a very SAD and for the most part unnecessary situation that unfortunately is NOT LIKELY to receive much press and controversy for the simple reason, "Money Talks and Nobody Walks".

I consider it a blight on America. Here are statistics on same.

Condition                                 Deaths Annually          Cost              Author
Adverse Drug Reactions         106,000                        $12 billion      Lazarou(1), Suh (49)
Medical error                           98,000                          $2 billion       IOM(6)
Unnecessary Procedures          37,136                          $122 billion   HCUP(3,13)
Surgery-Related                       32,000                          $9 billion       AHRQ(85)

This shortened list includes $145,000 billion in costs and #273,136 deaths annually from these (4) causes

Total chart reveals 8 conditions and shows 783,936 annual deaths and $282 billion dollars cost

It makes a lot more sense to be to do your best to educate yourself on natural alternatives to drugs, try and eat right, exercise, and take supplements. It is also important to get off sugary drinks, all Diet and Regular and (DIET)  Coke, Pepsi, carbonated drinks, all soft drinks, 99% of all bottled flavored drinks of any kind (exceptions could include Pom/Pom juice (Pomegranate juice / sparingly). In addition stay away from empty nutrition, high calorie, high sugar foods.

REMEMBER THAT THE EMPHASIS from the medical community is on TREATMENT and MANAGEMENT of symptoms, and NOT on finding cures.

Money talks, nobody walks!

  • 2.2 million people suffer in hospital adverse prescription drug reactions
  • Antibiotics are miss prescribed 20 million times a year to ward off viral infections
  • Nearly 8 MILLION unnecessary medical and surgical procedures are performed every year

DON'T be a statistic. It is never too late to make a change in your life. Today is the 1st day of the rest of your life.

God Bless,


Psalm 30:2-3
LORD my God, I cried out to You, And You healed me. O LORD, You brought my soul up from the grave; You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
