The Truth About Pharmaceutical Drugs.
Realize that some people have an agenda to sell many harmful products and will often go to great length to disseminate false information to do so. Drug companies hire doctors and scientists, who are lured by big money to write reports and reviews about drugs that they know to be completely false.
Every so often when a drug has destroyed the lives of countless thousands of people and enough evidence is established, the drug companies are forced to pay back a few million of the billions of dollars they have milked out of innocent and trusting people.
The drug companies write all of the modern textbooks used in the medical universities today. The majority of doctors today are little more than legal drug pushers and many of them receive huge bonuses, based upon the amount of certain drugs that they prescribe.
Some doctors may be naïve, but I am certain that a majority of them realize they are playing a role in a huge moneymaking racket.
A friend of mine has a brother who is a heart surgeon. I won’t mention any names, but she told me that her brother, who worked at a very large hospital confided in her that the directors of the hospital called a private meeting with all of the heart surgeons and told them that if they wanted to keep all of the nice operating equipment that they had, they would have to increase the number of surgeries performed.
He told my friend that the doctors began recommending heart surgeries to people who did not need them based upon the fact that these patients each had good medical insurance. He said that a number of these patients died from complications in surgery.
Misdiagnosis, malpractice, unnecessary surgeries and prescription drugs kill upwards of one million people annually.
According to the groundbreaking 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. That’s the equivalent of six jumbo jet crashes a day for an entire year. But where is the media attention for this tragedy? Where is the government support for stopping these medical mistakes before they happen?
According to a 1995 U.S. iatrogenic report, “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.” This report was issued 17 years ago, when America had 58 million fewer citizens and drug company scandals like the Vioxx recall were yet to occur.
The deaths listed in these reports are only the ones that the medical establishment admits to. The actual number may be several times more as most deaths are listed as “natural causes”. Consider also that these statistics are “ancient” in a world where thousands of new and more dangerous drugs have been developed. Today, health care comprises roughly 20 percent of the United States’ gross national product.
The Hippocratic Oath is an oath that historically has been taken by physicians and other healthcare professionals swearing to practice medicine ethically.
One of the clauses in that oath states: “I will not give a lethal drug to anyone, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.”
Hippocrates (460 BC – 370 BC) was an ancient Greek physician and is considered one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine. He is referred to as the father of Western medicine in recognition of his lasting contributions to that field.
Hippocrates said, “Let thy food be thy medicine.” That is excellent advice and is why so many of the ShopFreeMart products are so beneficial.
