Seven hundred eighty-three thousand nine hundred and thirty-six or written out 783,936. That’s quite an overwhelming number if you think about it. Not bad if that’s your take home from winning the lottery the night before. Not bad if that’s the value of your house. Not bad if that’s the number of people who follow you on Twitter. But if that’s bad, real bad, when you realize that’s the number of people who die every year from our “health care” system. That’s right. 783,936 husbands, wives, children, and friends in 2003 alone, maybe someone you know. According to the report “Death by Medicine” authored by two PhD’s and three MD’s, it’s scary to think that regulatory agencies go on pretending that alternative health care like chiropractic/supplements/homeopathy are dangerous, yet ignore published statistics showing that government sanctioned medicine is the real hidden hazard. Crazy to conceive and even more mind boggling when questioning why it’s rarely reported on the news/television/internet. Where are the demonstrations? Marches? Undercover TV investigations? In fact, the only thing you hear everyday is the sound of medicine and the pharmaceutical companies carrying on “business as usual”, leading us to our ever-declining health and lifestyles. Check out these numbers:
Adverse drug reactions: 106,000 deaths costing 12 billion dollars
Medical errors: 98,000 deaths costing 2 billion dollars
Unnecessary procedures: 37,136 deaths costing 122 billion dollars
