Death by Medicine

The most dangerous thing you can do, is to do what a Dr. prescribes.

By Gary Null, PhD; Carolyn Dean MD, ND; Martin Feldman, MD; Debora Rasio, MD; and Dorothy Smith, PhD    

The most stunning statistic, however, is that the total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine is an astounding 783,936 per year. It is now evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the US. (By contrast, the number of deaths attributable to heart disease in 2001 was 699,697, while the number of deaths attributable to cancer was 553,251.5)

This fully referenced report shows the number of people having in-hospital, adverse reactions to prescribed drugs to be 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.


Doctors, Live to 58 years per Dr. Wallace. The American Medical

Association said that has to be wrong and that they would have an

outside company make a bigger study and print it. The study result

was 56 years. You trusting doctors to tell you how to live to be a

hundred years old Is stupid You have to be absolutely stupid to

take prescription drugs. You must take responsibility for your own



Doing what doctors recommend can only harm your health.


Doctors must follow standard procedures set up by

drug companies and are not allowed to give vitamins minerals and desiccated thyroid. Drug reps if they find a Dr. is giving magnesium, desiccated thyroid and other vitamins they report the Dr. to the government. The government stops all Medicare and Medicaid payments to the Dr. The Dr. Goes instantly out of business forever. The FDA is owned and operated by the drug companies.

90,000 elderly go bankrupt each year and lose their homes and savings due to medical bills if their partner gets sick even though they're only paying 20% on Medicare. You can’t afford to go to doctors. 1,500,000 people lose their homes due to Dr. bills each year.

Health care accounts for $1 in every $6 spent in the United States — and costs are climbing at twice the rate of inflation. Every year, an estimated 1.5 million families lose their homes because of medical bills. Although we have the world’s most expensive health-care system, 24 countries have a longer life expectancy and 34 have a lower infant-mortality rate, according to the latest United Nations report.

You can afford to stay healthy by taking the necessary amounts of vitamins and minerals. Most elderly have considerable money problems due to doctors and hospitals.

More doctors lose their practice by prescribing desiccated thyroid that works in place of Centroid that only partly works than for any other reason. Forcing doctors to give only prescription drugs is extreme money grabbing health care crime by drug companies. These billions of dollars to drug companies corrupt a government corrupts doctors and even corrupts news systems. Talk about corruption, this is extreme corruption.



According to the March 2014 AARP Bulletin, doctors are warning that some

of the medical tests routinely taken by Americans do more harm than good, waste

billions of health care dollars annually and could endanger your health or even

your life. 


Some of the tests that are overused by prestigious panels of doctors include annual Pap smears, regular PSA tests, regular EKG’s, and even routine yearly physicals

mammograms.  Doctors are saying that the overuse of such tests can lead to

dangerous side effects, pain, radiation exposure, unnecessary surgery, even death.

The American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation asked more than 50 medical

societies—of family doctors, oncologists, cardiologists, and other specialists—to identify tests and treatments that are often unnecessary.  AARP is a consumer partner with this campaign, called Choosing Wisely. A study of people 100 years old found they only go to a Dr. if they have an accident. A retired pharmacist said no way in hell would he take a prescription drug their; way too damn dangerous.

Go to a doctor only if you have an accident or a serious health problem.


These tests are more likely to harm your health or even kill you.

Nuclear stress tests, and other imaging tests. Yearly electrocardiogram or exercise stress test. PSA to screen for prostate cancer. X-ray, CT scan or MRI. or a Yearly mammogram. A colonoscopy makes you three times more likely to die. So don’t do it. An aspirin a day makes you three times more likely to have macular degeneration. Test For Early Detection make You More Likely To Die.

Something is wrong when regulatory agencies pretend that vitamins are dangerous, yet ignore published statistics showing that government-sanctioned medicine is the real hazard.


Until now, Life Extension could cite only isolated statistics to make its case about the dangers of conventional medicine.

No one had ever analyzed and combined ALL of the published literature dealing with injuries and deaths caused by government-protected medicine. That has now changed. Learn cure for everything at

A group of researchers meticulously reviewed the statistical evidence and their findings are absolutely shocking.  These researchers have authored a paper titled “Death by Medicine” that presents compelling evidence that today’s system frequently causes more harm than good.

We had intended to publish the entire text of “Death By Medicine” in this month’s issue. The article uncovered so many problems with conventional medicine how ever, that it became too long to fit within these pages. We have instead put it on our website (


We placed this article on our website to memorialize the failure of the American medical system. By exposing these gruesome statistics in painstaking detail, we provide a basis for competent and compassionate medical professionals to recognize the inadequacies of today’s system and at least attempt to institute meaningful reforms.


Natural medicine is under siege, as pharmaceutical company lobbyists urge lawmakers to deprive Americans of the benefits of dietary supplements. Drug-company front groups have launched slanderous media campaigns to discredit the value of healthy lifestyles. The FDA continues to interfere with those who offer natural products that compete with prescription drugs.


These attacks against natural medicine obscure a lethal problem that until now was buried in thousands of pages of scientific text. In response to these baseless challenges to natural medicine, the Nutrition Institute of America commissioned an independent review of the quality of “government-approved” medicine. The startling findings from this meticulous study indicate that conventional medicine is “the leading cause of death” in the United States .

The Nutrition Institute of America is a nonprofit organization that has sponsored independent research for the past 30 years. To support its bold claim that conventional medicine is America 's number-one killer, the Nutritional Institute of America mandated that every “count” in this “indictment” of US medicine be validated by published, peer-reviewed


Scientific studies.

What you are about to read is a stunning compilation of facts that documents that those who seek to abolish consumer access to natural therapies are misleading the public. Over 700,000 Americans die each year at the hands of government-sanctioned medicine, while the FDA and other government agencies pretend to protect the public by harassing those who offer safe alternatives.


A definitive review of medical peer-reviewed journals and government health statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good.


Each year approximately 2.2 million US hospital patients experience adverse drug reactions (ADRs) to prescribed medications.(1) In 1995, Dr. Richard Besser of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections to be 20 million; in 2003, Dr. Besser spoke n terms of tens of millions of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually.(2, 2a)


Approximately 7.5 million unnecessary  medical and surgical procedures are performed annually in the US,(3) while approximately 8.9 million Americans are

hospitalized unnecessarily.(4) As shown in the following table, the estimated total number of iatrogenic deaths—that is, deaths induced inadvertently by a physician or surgeon or by medical treatment or diagnostic procedures— in the US annually is 783,936. It is evident that the American medical system is itself the leading cause of death and injury in the US . By comparison, approximately 699,697 Americans died of heart in 2001, while 553,251 died of cancer.(5)

Using Leape's 1997 medical and drug error rate of 3 million(14) multiplied by the 14% fatality rate he used in 1994(16) produces an annual death rate of 420,000 for drug errors and medical errors combined. Using this number instead of Lazorou's 106,000 drug errors and the Institute of Medicine 's (IOM) estimated 98,000 annual medical errors would add another 216,000 deaths, for a total of 999,936 deaths annually.
