More Harm Than Good

How is it that regulatory agencies pretend that vitamins are dangerous, yet ignore published statistics showing that government-sanctioned medicine is the real hazard? Until very recently, no one had ever analyzed and combined all of the published literature dealing with injuries and deaths caused by government-protected medicine. A group of researchers meticulously reviewed the statistical evidence and their findings are absolutely horrifying: today’s medical system that misprescribes and overprescribes medication frequently causes more harm than good. According to the research findings, the number of people having in-hospital, adverse reactions to prescribed drugs is 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. Let’s repeat that last sentence again: 783,936 deaths caused by conventional medicine every year. That makes conventional medicine the leading cause of death and injury in America today!.
