The Medical Killing Machine Has Gone Into Overdrive in the U.S.
The Medical Killing Machine Has Gone Into Overdrive in the U.S. - Returning to this topic which has engaged our attention for years, we update many of the commonly referenced statistics related to medically-induced injuries and deaths. Death-by-Doctor (iatrogenics) is by far the leading cause of death in the U.S. each year. Using the seminal 2004 study entitled Death by Medicine, from a number of researchers, we then take more recent projections and update these figures. These deaths include: medical errors in hospitals, hospital-acquired infections, adverse drug reactions, improper procedures, unnecessary surgeries, malnutrition, outpatient deaths, superbug infections from antibiotic over use, and much more. If you thought that police homicides and the history of lynching was outrageous, then the daily, weekly and annual toll from killer medicine will take your outrage into hyperdrive. The numbers are staggering but the solutions are much more simple to apply. (LIBMP3-3655)
