Subject; Medical-Drug Destruction of Life By the Numbers
I’ll just give you the horrific quotes now and discuss the source afterwards:
“…appropriately prescribed prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of
death…About 330,000 patients die each year from prescription drugs in the US and
“They [the drugs] cause an epidemic of about 20 times more [6.6 million per year]
hospitalizations, as well as falls, road accidents, and about 80 million [per year]
medically minor problems such as pains, discomforts, and dysfunctions that hobble
productivity or the ability to care for others.
“Deaths from overmedication, errors, and self-medication would increase these figures.”
In other words, the 330,000 deaths per year, the 6.6 million hospitalizations per
year, and the 80 million “medically minor” problems per year…all of this stems
from CORRECTLY PRESCRIBED medicines.
The quotes come from the ASA [American Sociological Association] publication called
Footnotes, in its November 2014 issue. The article is “The Epidemic of Sickness
and Death from Prescription Drugs.” The author of the article is Donald W Light.
Donald W Light is a professor of medical and economic sociology. He is a founding
fellow of the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania. In 2013, he
was a fellow at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard. He is a Lokey
Visiting Professor at Stanford University and a Fellow of the Royal Society of
It’s been my policy to quote medical analysts who have mainstream credentials, when
it comes to adding up the results of medical-drug destruction.
I do this to show that, in refusing to fix the holocaust, the federal government,
medical schools, and pharmaceutical companies can’t claim a) their critics and
are “fringe researchers” and b) there really isn’t a problem.
Believe me, the officials who should have been fixing the enormous tragedy for at
least the past 15 years are intent on hiding it.
When you stop and think about the meaning of these numbers, one of the things you
realize is: this massive destruction of life envelops whole countries.
It not only maims and kills, it brings emotional turmoil and loss to the families,
friends, co-workers, and colleagues of those who are killed and maimed: the 330,000
who are killed and the 6.6 million who are hospitalized and the 80 million whose
productivity is hobbled or whose ability to care for others is significantly
If you consciously set out to bring a nation to its knees, to kill it, to disable
it, to make it unable to function at any reasonable level, you would be hard pressed
to find a more effective long-term method than exposing the population to the
Donald Light is the editor of a book that ought to be studied at every college and
medical school in the world: The Risks of Prescription Drugs (Columbia University
Press). The basic research that led to his conclusions, cited above, come from that
book. His website is www.pharmamyths.net.
