Compare deaths from medicines, vitamins, and all US wars
Shock: Comparing deaths from medical drugs, vitamins, all US wars

People want to believe medical science gives us, at any given moment, the best of
all possible worlds.
And of course, the best of all possible worlds must have its enemies: the quacks
who sell unproven snake oil.
So let’s look at some facts.
As I’ve been documenting in my last several articles, the medical cartel has been
engaged in massive criminal fraud, presenting their drugs as safe and effective
across the board—when, in fact, these drugs have been killing and maiming huge
numbers of people, like clockwork.
I’ve cited the review, “Is US Health Really the Best in the World?”, by Dr. Barbara
Starfied (Journal of the American Medical Association, July 26, 2000), in which
Starfield reveals the American medical system kills 225,000 people per year—106,000
as a direct result of pharmaceutical drugs.
I’ve now found another study, published in the same Journal, two years earlier:
April 15, 1998; “Incidence of Adverse Drug Reactions in Hospitalized Patients.”
It, too, is mind-boggling.
The authors, led by Jason Lazarou, culled 39 previous studies on patients in hospitals.
These patients, who received drugs in hospitals, or were admitted to hospitals
because they were suffering from the drugs doctors had given them, met the following
Every year, in the US, between 76,000 and 137,000 hospitalized patients die as a
direct result of the drugs.
Beyond that, every year 2.2 MILLION hospitalized patients experience serious adverse
reactions to the drugs.
The authors write: “…Our study on ADRs [Adverse Drug Reactions], which excludes
medication errors, had a different objective: to show that there are a large number
of ADRs even when the drugs are properly prescribed and and administered.”
So this study had nothing to do with doctor errors, nurse errors, or improper combining
of drugs. And it only counted people killed who were admitted to hospitals. It
didn’t begin to tally all the people taking pharmaceuticals outside hospitals who
died as consequence of the drugs.
I found the link to this study at the Dr. Rath Health Foundation, in the middle
of a very interesting article by Dr. Aleksandra Niedzwiecki: “Commentary on the
Safety of Vitamins.”
Here are two key quotes from her article:
“In 2010, not one single person [in the US] died as a result of taking vitamins
(Bronstein, et al, (2011) Clinical Toxical, 49 (10), 910-941).”
“In 2004, the deaths of 3 people [in the US] were attributed to the intake of vitamins.
Of these, 2 persons were said to have died as a result of megadoses of vitamins
D and E, and one person as a result of an overdose of iron and fluoride. Data
from: ‘Toxic Exposure Surveillance System 2004, Annual Report, Am. Assoc. of Poison
No deaths from vitamins (2011), and three deaths (2004) from vitamins (plus fluoride!).
106,000 deaths every year from pharmaceutical drugs (Starfield).
Between 76,000 and 137,000 deaths from pharmaceutical drugs every year in hospitalized
The FDA and its “quack-buster” allies go after vitamins, demean “unproven remedies,”
and generally take every possible opportunity to warn people about “alternatives,”
on the basis that they aren’t scientifically supported.
Meanwhile, the very drugs these mobsters are promoting—and in the case of the
FDA, CERTIFYING AS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE—are killing and maiming people at a staggering
The masses are treated to non-stop PR on the glories of the US medical system.
In the Wikipedia entry, “US military casualties of war,” the grand total of all
military deaths in the history of this country, starting with the Revolutionary
War, is 1,312,612.
In any given 10 years of modern medical treatment? 2,250,000 deaths.
Consider how much suppression is necessary to keep the latter number under wraps.
