    Death By Medicine

    Problems most American face:

    1. High medical insurance cost
    Insurance companies not supporting natural methods in prevention and correction of sickness and health recovery.
    High death and sickness rates with prescription interactions.

    Last year the American people approximately spent 2.8 trillion dollars on health care, and it is being projected that Americans will spend 4.5 trillion dollars on health care in 2019. During 2013, Americans will spend more than 280 billion dollars just on prescription drugs. The 2003 medical report, Death by Medicine, by Drs. Gary Null, Carolyn Dean, Martin Feldman, Debora Rasio and Dorothy Smith, 783,936 people in the United States die every year from conventional medicine mistakes. Approximately 16,000 new IRS agents will be hired to help oversee the implementation of Obamacare, and the Obama administration has given the IRS 500 million extra dollars "outside the normal appropriations process" to help the IRS with their new duties.

    From that statistic, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and CDC, adverse drug reactions from pain-killer drugs that are properly prescribed and properly administered cause about 106,000 deaths per year, making prescription drugs the fourth-leading cause of death in the U.S. With the death rate under 800,000, additionally more than 2.2 million people visit U.S. emergency rooms each year as a result of adverse drug reactions bring the total to an average of 3 million Americans per year affected by pharmaceutical drugs and their interactions.

    Polypharmacy, which refers to the poisonous chemical cocktail of multiple drugs that many people are taking, is an increasing health concern not just for the elderly, but for everyone. Dr. Michael Stern, a specialist in geriatric emergency medicine at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, told the New York Times: “Polypharmacy is responsible for up to 28 percent of hospital admissions and, if it were classified as such, it would be the fifth leading cause of death in the United States.”

    According to “Archives of Internal Medicine”, to put this in perspective, in 1994, one year this data was collected, Americans spent over $73 billion on prescription drugs. This averages out to $292 per person to buy the drugs and an additional $306 to treat the adverse effects of using these drugs. That’s about $600 for every American man, woman, and child in the U.S.A. A study of 1,580 cases tracked at a single hospital over a year shows that adverse drug events were involved in 2.4 per 100 admissions, producing an additional hospital stay of 1.9 days, costing $2,262, and increasing the risk of death by 1.88 - a nearly twofold increase. Out of 91,574 patients admitted to a single hospital over a three-year period, 2.43% (2,227) experienced adverse drug events. Remember this was from 1994!
