US HealthCare Industry is the 3rd Leading Cause of Death in the US!

This is sick (See the FDA, S510 and ObamaCare)

By Jon Rappoport (Rense)

The figures have been known for a decade. The story was covered briefly when a landmark study surfaced, and then it sank like a stone.

The truth was inconvenient for many interests. That has not changed. "Medical coverage for all" is a banner that conceals ugly facts.

On July 26, 2000, the US medical community received a titanic shock to the system, when one of its most respected public-health experts, Dr. Barbara Starfield, revealed her findings on healthcare in America. Starfield was, and still is, associated with the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.

The Starfield study, "Is US health really the best in the world?", published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, came to the following conclusions:

Every year in the US there are:

12,000 deaths from unnecessary surgeries;
7,000 deaths from medication errors in hospitals;
20,000 deaths from other errors in hospitals;
80,000 deaths from infections acquired in hospitals;
106,000 deaths from FDA-approved correctly prescribed medicines.

The total of medically-caused deaths in the US every year is 225,000.

This makes the medical system the third leading cause of death in the US, behind heart disease and cancer.

Why?

Because the healthcare industry, including the FDA, is owned by "Big Pharma".

that doesn't even begin

to touch the enormous expenditures... a nurse was telling me the other day the medication that gets thrown away simply because the "package" was opened and the amount of the drug was more than necessary but cannot be re-used... of course the patient, (or insurance provider) gets billed the full amount... and that's just one example of the myriad of abuses that take place... No one is motivated to be fiscally conservative when someone else is footing the bill...

Where is the government

that professes so much to be protecting us?

So when doctors go on strike . . .

Does the death rate go down?

YES IT DOES.

Amazing, huh? Doctors protect our health like government protects our liberties.

third leading death

let that sink in.

it cannot divest itself from vested interests.

Q: Can you offer an opinion about how the FDA can be so mortally wrong about so many drugs?

A: Yes, it cannot divest itself from vested interests. [There is] a large literature about this, mostly unrecognized by the people because the industry-supported media give it no attention.

Free includes debt-free!

It is incredible that we know

It is incredible that we know little of this..
