Research Reveals Prescription Drugs Do More Harm Than Good

How can it be that the medical profession does more harm than good? First consider the following facts from the new release “A Miraculous Health Substance ” By Marvin Lee Robey:

“In 1962 the doctors in British Columbia went on strike. The death rate dropped so sharply the morticians organization intervened to settle the strike because their profits had dropped so drastically. When the strike ended the mortality rate rose back to ‘normal’. In 1976 when doctors went on strike in Los Angeles County, California the death rate dropped 18% ! As soon as the strike was over the death rate rose to ‘normal’. That same year in Bogota, Columbia medical doctors went on strike for 52 days. The death rate dropped 35%. In 1973 in Israel, the doctors went on strike, reducing the number of patients they were seeing from 65,000 down to 7,000. The strike lasted a month. The mortality rate dropped by 50%! In 1983 the doctors in Israel again went on strike for four and a half months. The death rate dropped so much the burial association intervened to end the strike because the morticians were losing so much business! The death rate then returned to ‘normal’. Again the doctors went on strike in Israel in 2,000 and the death rate again dropped by about one third and the morticians once again intervened to end the strike!’

According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, by Dr. Bruce H. Pomeranze of Toronto, Canada, concerning a committee investigation of this phenomenon, he suggests some reasons for this. He estimates that bad reactions to prescription and over the counter medications kill between 76,000 and 137,000 North Americans a year. Dr. Pomeranz further estimates that 2.1 million are seriously injured each year by these same causes. These are based upon reported cases. The actual number is probably much higher.

More light is shown on this phenomenon by Jerry Philips, Director of the FDA’s Office of Post Marketing  Drug Assessment who states: “In the broader area of adverse drug reactions data, the 250,000 reports received annually probably represents only 5% of the actual reactions that occur.”

He gives as the reason for this the fact that there is no requirement to report doctor caused adverse reactions or deaths and they are usually given a different label. No doctor or hospital wants to report their failures and mistakes if they are not required to.

This, then, would place the figures for serious adverse reactions to prescription drugs at possibly five million a year!! Add to this the fact that the Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports the death rate from prescription drugs increased by 61% from 1999 to 2004, a period of only five years! 

In “Death by Medicine” by authors Gary Null, PhD; Carolyn Dean, MD, ND: Martin Fieldman, MD; Debora Rasio, MD; and Dorothy Smith, PhD state: “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…the estimated total number of iatrogenic deaths- that is, deaths induced inadvertently  by a physician or surgeon or by medical treatment or diagnostic procedures –in the US annually is 783,936"

“It is evident that the American medical system is itself the leading cause of death and injury in the us …Our estimated ten year total of 7.8 million iatrogenic deaths is more than all the casualties from all the wars fought by the U.S. in history…As few as 5% and no more than 20% of iatrogenic acts are ever reported.”

A High Percentage of These Adverse Reactions are From Antibiotics

Why antibiotics do more harm than good in the long run!

A high percentage of these adverse reactions result from an allergic reaction to a specific antibiotic. The frightening thing about this is that these allergic reactions often develop very suddenly to an antibiotic that the same person has used before without a problem. This sometimes results in sudden death.

However, very few people are aware of the common long term problems caused by antibiotics under the best of conditions. The healthy digestive system consists of about 500 different strains of aerobic bacteria. That is, bacteria that require oxygen in the liquids they live in. At least some of these bacteria are necessary to good health. In an article in the June 2007 magazine Discover, author Josie Glausiusz states: “Of the 100 trillion cells inside each of us, only 10 percent are actually human. The rest belong to aliens: bacteria, fungi, and other microbes.” Of course these figures are based upon numbers, not proportionate to weight. We have generally been educated to fear all bacteria. Actually, if all of these bacteria were killed off in our bodies we would probably die very quickly. In a healthy body, almost all of these bacteria are our friends and essential to our health. They consume much of the food we eat,  converting much of its contents we cannot otherwise use into the nutrients we require.

This is the same basic process used in many processes by the drug companies to produce many of their products. Certain nutrients are fed to certain bacteria at certain temperatures and acid-alkaline levels and the by products of these bacteria are the product needed. Many bacteria in our healthy bodies work the same way.

Some processes in some of the body organs work similarly, requiring certain bacteria to perform their proper functions. This is particularly true of the liver.

Most antibiotics kill off at least some of both the problem bacteria and the necessary bacteria indiscriminately. They do not kill the yeasts and fungus however. There are always some of these in the digestive system. When the beneficial bacteria are destroyed the yeasts quickly take over. They produce a very acid by-product which they thrive in and which the beneficial bacteria do not do well in.   This leads to a deterioration of many body functions. Eventually the yeast and fungus may work into the blood. This destroys the immune system and results in many health problems including some of the worst. The process is not overnight but gradual and each use of an antibiotic accelerates the process.

When the yeast and anaerobic bacteria become a problem to our health, the condition is called “Candida”. Find out more about Candida Here.
