A headline in Natural News raised this awareness from yellow alert to maximum alert.

Healthcare cost is already eating the life and budget of Americans.  However, that hard earned money spent seems to be buying worst things and health risk than advertised.

Statistics prove prescription drugs are 16,400% more deadly than terrorists

The News report goes on by saying: “…Americans today are used to fixing problems the quick way – even when it comes to their health. Thus, they rely heavily on prescription drugs to fix their diseases. For every conceivable ailment – real or not – chances are there’s a pricey prescription drug to “treat” it. Chances are even better that their drug of choice comes chock full of side effects.”

There was a groundbreaking 2003 medical report Death by Medicine, by Drs. Gary Null, Carolyn Dean, Martin Feldman, Debora Rasio and Dorothy Smith, that listed 783,936 people in the United States die every year from conventional medicine mistakes.

In addition, hospitals further contribute to the crisis.

“Over a million patients are injured in U.S. hospitals each year, and approximately 280,000 die annually as a result of these injuries. Therefore, the iatrogenic death rate dwarfs the annual automobile accident mortality rate of 45,000 and accounts for more deaths than all other accidents combined.” Sounds familiar? Is worst than that! This statistic is from a report (1995 U.S. iatrogenic report) issued 10 years ago, when America had 34 million fewer citizens and drug company scandals like the Vioxx recall were yet to occur. Today, health care comprises 15.5 percent of the United States’ gross national product, with spending reaching $1.4 trillion in 2004.
