Facts about Health Care in the United States[2]
Each year:

  • Sloppy handwriting causes 7,000 patient deaths
  • Preventable medication mistakes hurt 1,500,00 patients
  • 7,500,000 unnecessary medical and surgical procedures are performed
  • Over 106,000 people die from adverse drug reactions - what we call side-effects, the military calls “collateral damage”
  • 94% of these adverse drug reactions are incorrectly diagnosed
  • Most side effects are mistaken for new disease symptoms, leading to further drugging and unnecessary medical procedures which increase the likelihood of death
  • Most of these deaths are from expected adverse reactions because they are an extension of the drug's actions
  • The mortality rate of people between the ages of 45 and 65, who took their prescription drugs as directed, rose 90% in a 5-year period.
  • As of 2001, Pfizer was the number one most profitable company of all the Fortune 500 companies.
  • Pfizer's profit in 2001 was US$7,800,000,000 (7.8 billion) - more than the profits of ALL Fortune 500 companies in the homebuilding, clothing, railroad and publishing industries combined.
  • Modern medicine is no longer concerned with health.
  • It has become a for-profit disease industry whose profits require that millions of people become sick and stay that way
  • It is an industry that refuses to recognize vitally important health facts such as how stress weakens our immune system
  • How processed foods, alcohol, excessive calories and insufficient exercise encourage disease
  • How the increasing toxic burden of tens of thousands of unnatural chemicals in our environment - air supply, water supply, food supply are directly and undeniably linked to the modern diseases which are epidemic in our society
  • You are told to stay out of the sun yet each year more than 50,000 people die from cancer because they didn't get sufficient sun exposure
  • Why is this situation continuing? Why is no-one telling you the truth? As the journalists used to say - “Follow the Money”
  • More than half of the population of the United States have received unnecessary medical treatment
  • That is about 50,000 people every day
  • Around 42% have been directly affected (often maimed) by a medical mistake, from a procedure or a drug.
  • 84% of the population know someone personally who is a victim of a medical mistake or error.
  • The consequences of these medical mistakes and errors is the equivalent of six fully-loaded jumbo jets crashing with loss of all life - each and every day
  • The difference, the only difference, is in the media coverage - there is no public mention of the tragedy, grief and anguish unnecessarily caused by modern medicine
  • The error rate in intensive care units alone is like the US Post Office losing more than 16,000 pieces of mail every hour of every day.
  • Or as if banks deducted cheques from the wrong accounts 32,000 times an hour, every hour of every day of every year.
  • The American medical system is the Number One Killer in the United States.
  • In 10 years it has killed around 8,000,000 people - more deaths than all the americans killed in all the conflicts in all of history.
  • In 2006 the american health care spending reached US$2,000,000,000,000 (2 trillion)
  • Free market economics tells us this should achieve the best medical system in the world - unparalleled in disease prevention and remediation with minimal harm or damage
  • Instead it is worse than that of many third-world countries
  • There are more factors which encourage this slaughter:
    • Deceptive marketing has encouraged people into spending 90% of the food budget on highly processed, additive-loaded, unhealthy foodstuffs.
    • Sugar in soft drinks is the major source of calories in the US, causing 1 in 3 Americans to develop diabetes (or pre-diabetes), and 2 in 3 Americans to become overweight, half of these are obese.
  • How many more people will be killed before you choose to take control of your health care?
  • Toxic, synthetic medicines will not ever reverse poor health which is a result of poor food choices
  • Consider - what possible benefits could outweigh a statistically-proven risk of unintentional death as the side-effect of most medical drugs?
  • Are you interested enough in your own health and wellbeing to make the effort to care for you health
  • Or would you rather modern medicine did it for you and you pay them astronomically for their products and services?
  • It is your life, it is your choice - the consequences are permanent and life-or-death.
