Death by Medicine

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

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. Read the entire article.

These statistics resonate with my family. In April, my mother suddenly became very ill with unexplained intestinal trouble. To put it mildly, she was turning inside out, and a whole team of "specialists" as well as her personal physician could not determine the cause. I began researching the medicines she had been prescribed in the 6 months prior to onset of this illness, and discovered she had been taking a once a month poison called "Boniva" and it was killing her. Not one physician would acknowledge that was the cause, but she stopped taking it, and after much prayer and good nutrition and rest, she is much better. I doubt she will ever be completely well again, as this took away an enormous chunk of her energy just to survive. The further travesty is that the drug was completely uneccessary. Complaints about this drug from many vicims, if they had been taken into account, would have alerted every doctor to the cause of her plight. Big pharmaceuticals, and Sally Fields, can disappear and we'd all be better off. Yes, I'm angry. Thank you for listening.

Do not doubt she will ever be the same. Bad events can make us bitter or better. She can find a renewed meaning in life and you have discovered that time can be short with the ones we love ... so we value time differently.

The control of the medical system in our country is not a good thing ... but God can take bad things and turn them into good for an individual and everybody whose lives they touch.

Just like the story of Joseph in the Bible. :-)

Thank you so much for sharing, Lynda!!!
