I am 68 years old and for the most part have not experienced gross medical errors in my own life or suffered any lasting detrimental physical damage from any doctors or hospital errors. I AM HOWEVER very susceptible to about any and all side effects of prescription drugs and consider that a gift from GOD. I am on the same prescription drugs for blood pressure and type 2 diabetes that I have been on for over 10 years. I DID have my dose lowered on both sets of drugs a couple of years ago and am always seeking information on eventually weaning myself completely off them.
Here are some additional statistics on DEATH by the medical and prescription drug industry:
Health Care in America Today
|Adverse Drug Reactions||1.06 million|
|Medical Error||0.98 million|
|Hospital Infections||0.88 million|
|Malnutrition in Health Care||1.09 million|
