New holocaust study: medical errors 3rd leading cause of death in US

I’ve been telling you about this for years.

A message to “quack busters” who attack natural health behind a phony mask of “scientific skepticism”: put your own house in order—that’s where the real quacks are.

The structures of medical propaganda are cracking.

The Washington Post (“Researchers: Medical errors now third leading cause of death in United States,” May 3) reports on a new Johns Hopkins study. I’ll give you the Post’s explosive quotes and then analyze them.

“…a new study by patient safety researchers provides some context…Their analysis, published in the BMJ on Tuesday [‘Medical error—the third leading cause of death in the US,’ 03 May 2016], shows that ‘medical errors’ in hospitals and other health care facilities are incredibly common and may now be the third leading cause of death in the United States — claiming 251,000 lives every year, more than respiratory disease, accidents, stroke and Alzheimer’s.”

“Martin Makary, a professor of surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine who led the research, said in an interview that the category includes everything from bad doctors to more systemic issues such as communication breakdowns when patients are handed off from one department to another.”

“’It boils down to people dying from the care that they receive rather than the disease for which they are seeking care,’” Makary said.

“His calculation of 251,000 deaths [per year] equates to nearly 700 deaths a day — about 9.5 percent of all deaths annually in the United States.”

“Moreover, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention doesn’t require reporting of [medical] errors in the data it collects about deaths through billing codes, making it hard to see what’s going on at the national level.”

“Frederick van Pelt, a doctor who works for The Chartis Group, a health care consultancy, said another element of harm that is often overlooked is the number of severe patient injuries resulting from medical error.”

“’Some estimates would put this number at 40 times the death rate,’ van Pelt said.”

There you have it. Now let’s dig in.

First of all, this study, as you can see, is focusing on medical errors in hospitals and “other health care facilities.” Did the researchers do much work looking for fatal errors that occur in average doctors’ offices? If not, the death numbers mentioned in this study are on the low side.

The CDC, which regularly reports mortality figures, doesn’t receive data, nor does it require data, from doctors on errors which lead to patients’ deaths. So the CDC is completely in the dark on the third leading cause of death in the US. This, of course, is the same agency that assures the public that vaccines are wonderfully safe and effective.

Consider the final quotes above. The estimate that “severe patient injuries from medical errors” are 40 times the death figure would give us this: every year in the US, there are 10 million severe injuries as a result of medical errors.

For years, I’ve been hammering on another landmark study out of John Hopkins. It was published on July 26, 2000, in the Journal of the American Association: “Is US health really the best in the world?” The author was Dr. Barbara Starfield, a revered public health expert.

Starfield, in her study, separated deaths from errors/mistreatment in hospitals, and deaths from medical drugs:

* Yearly deaths from mistreatment and errors in hospitals: 119,000.

* Yearly deaths from correctly prescribed medical drugs: 106,000.

The new study doesn’t specifically give a death-number for the medical-drug category.

So again, we can assume the new study is citing an overall death figure that is on the low side.

So let’s just round off the new 250,000-death figure and call it 300,000 deaths in America per year as a direct result of the medical system.

That works out to 3 MILLION deaths per decade.

And 100 MILLION severe patient injuries per decade.

This is the altruistic umbrella under which more Americans than ever will live and die, as a result of the glorious Obamacare insurance program.

power outside the matrix

This is the foundation on which doctors and medical bureaucrats stand, when they make statements to the press about the unqualified success of modern medicine—for example, in the area of vaccines.

“I’m the expert here. I represent a system that kills 3 million Americans per decade and severely injures 100 million Americans, and therefore you can believe me when I say that vaccines are remarkably safe and effective.”

Who are the clueless? Who are the liars? Who are killing and maiming the people? Who are not reversing the holocaust?

Who are the lunatics?

The people who opt for natural health?

I don’t think so.


The lunatics and their dupes and proxies are in plain view, every night, on your television screen.

There they are. Look at them.

Understand what is going on.

The full meaning of it.

    You are seriously kidding me that vital statistics are not accounted for? Oh yea, that’s because we health professionals don’t police ourselves. Did you know I am now writing novels of fiction with some medicine in there as I worked a lifetime dealing with sick patients? It’s a good system with flaws which make millionaires (doctors, CEO’s, lawyers, drug manufacturers, surgeons, but not nurses). Keep reporting.

  2. howardat58 says:

    Before I left the UK in 2005 it was known that 40% of the hospital patients were there as a result of what doctors had done for (to) them.

  3. Sherlock says:

    How is it possible? It’s everywhere: French-Canadian newspapers, France newspapers, CBC, Washington Post, CNN, FOX (With Dr. Martin Makary the co-author of the study), etc.

    “I’m the expert here. I represent a system that kills 3 million Americans per decade and severely injures 100 million Americans, and therefore you can believe me when I say that vaccines are remarkably safe and effective.”

    Lol. Imagine…

    “My name is Elizabeth Cohen: Vaccines are safe… or to say it another way because some people don’t hear this well: I represent a system that kills 3 million Americans per decade and severely injures 100 million Americans, and therefore you can believe me when I say that vaccines are remarkably safe”.

  4. Seniorcraig says:

    The comment “This is the altruistic umbrella under which more Americans than ever will live and die, as a result of the glorious Obamacare insurance program” is unworthy of you, Jon. The state of affairs you describe is obviously not the result of Obamacare because you describe the 2000 Starfield study, long before Obamacare.

  5. middleway says:

    Modern Allopathic medicine continues to take a bleak toll on its willingly complacent clients. The actual injury and morbidity is far worse than the ‘Medical Error—the Third Leading Cause of Death in the US’ report indicates. What remains unreported are the more subtle undetectable levels of carnage resulting from “Standard and Approved’ medical procedures and pharmaceuticals used in the typical treatment and maintenance of the first, second, fourth, fifth, sixth, etc. causes of medical death or injury. The controlling entities that have historically orchestrated the medical symphony are nothing more than a faceless organized crime syndicate,… that have the chutzpah to call their profit driven program of eugenics – ‘Heath-Care’. Capiche?

    • silverpen123 says:

      I wouldnt call it complacent so much as blind trust from years of indoctrination in the skewed version of “authority”.

      Here’s a small sample of medical/pharma problems. See Ted Talks, “Why medicine often has dangerous side effects for women”.
      I found this as a confirmation of what I observed over many years and had to fight doctors to give me half doses or children doese of everything, or just refuse the medicine or not fill the prescription.

  6. THX1138 says:

    Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD, MBA, (who once said in her chatroom that she loves Jon Rappoport), went through all of the medical system’s statistics and determined that by following the “Standard of Care” properly, without error, modern medicine is killing 860,000 people per year in America. This is according to 2012 numbers, so the number is likely much higher now. And they stopped publishing those figures in 2012.

    This report is a limited hangout, a distraction to place in the public’s mind “it’s just error” and the smaller number they come up with for iatrogenic deaths, when in fact they are killing many times as many people in the normal course of doing business.

    I think that Jon and Jennifer should do an interview. Here are relevant links:

    “The theme of this radio show is: The competent practice of medicine according to the standard of care is the leading cause of death in America. Healing with Dr. Daniels is the place where you get honest answers that can save your life; without all the technical mumbo jumbo.”

    “How are 860,000 people dying every year from murder by medicine?

    860,000 people are murdered by medicine each year in the United States alone. Information based on Medical Research, not mine.

    How does this happen? Do they fall out of a hospital bed, catch an infection in the hospital, or do they just take a medication as prescribed?”

    Dr. Daniels doesn’t use the word “murdered” any more because doctors are, in fact, licensed to kill people.

    • I think these figures are “more like it” but even they might be an under estimation.

      A comment by Dayton Smith, Jr (whose website has been pulled and I see “why” now I note a FB presence to the article below is much more “truthful”

      “There is no real study that can accurately report deaths by “avoidable medical error”. Every number reported starting with the 1999 study of 98,000 people dying from “avoidable medical error” to this study of 440,000 is vastly understated. In the April, 2013 publication “A Day in Health” they estimate that the 1999 study by the Institute of Medicine reporting 98,000 deaths a year is way understated and reports a 2011 study published by a “Day in Health” claiming current reporting methods miss 90% of serious adverse events. This puts the real number of people being killed each year by the medical industry at well over 1,000,000. It further makes death by “avoidable medical error” the number one cause of death in the US…”

    Allopathic medicine is obsolete, following basic tenets established 100 years ago. It clings to the idea that we eat for ‘calories’ instead of nutritional compounds. A most recent (and cited as ‘controversial’) study shows that eating plants transfers their micro-RNA to our blood serum to bring positive epigenetic effects. Another recent study showed that in eating plants, some transfer occurs wherein we become more like plants in being able to directly absorb and use energy from the sun. Our melatonin is the equivalent of chlorophyll and appears to be an ‘organ’ unto itself with its own microbiome. All of the information is available, but the allopathic dinosaurs cling to an archaic and bad model of ‘practice,’ Extinction can’t come soon enough.

    • arcadia11 says:

      i have long thought that i could work up to giving up food altogether – relying on the sun as energy source. if it were not for the chemtrails….

      a lovely comment to read. thank you.

    • silverpen123 says:

      It’s all about how many patients can they run through in a day, follow what they’ve been taught, and avoid medical malpractice (which partially explains why they don’t report all the problems). Modern medicine is the equivalent of using leeches to cure all manner of ailments. I grew up with a doctor who helped me cure things using nutrition and good habits. Medical schools spend more time teaching pharmaceuticals than proper nutrition. It’s a money thing.

    • @Jacqueline

      Great words Jacquelin.

      I am a big fan of, and constant eater of living food. Microgreens and sprouts of every different kind of seed you can possibly think of …sprouts are living food, wholesome, nutritious and packed with micro-nutrients. About sixty percent of what you eat should be vegetable. The proteins in sprouts are more readily available, and much easier to digest that meat.

      The nutrition from this source of food is inexpensive, and easy and an extremely potent food to grow. Most sprouts will be ready with within three days… on your kitchen counter. With a simple glass jar and piece of netting and a rubber band. Soak the seeds over night in full, netted jar of fresh water, drain, and turn upside down leaning into a saucer, rinse and repeat for three days. You can grow them longer if you wish on a coconut mat to achieve micro-greens.
      Rinse and place your sprouts in the fridge, in a clean glass jar (No plastics ever, in your mouth or near ypur food). Viola! The sprouts will continue to grow at a much slower rate. so the food is always alive when you eat it.

      When your body gets on to this little secret. it will get you running to the fridge to get sprouts. Snacking most time, I am found on the couch picking away at a jar of crunchy bean mix (Garbonzo bean, peas, red and black lentils, mung beans). Some are spicy, some are hotter, like radish sprouts. Some have a nutty taste. Some like carrot seeds taste like the plant. So many different flavors.
      Microgreens are taken a step futher and grown on a coconut husk mat that is reusable.

      A great salad made of crunchy bean mix is; sprouted crunchy bean mix, a garden fresh onion, cut into bite size pieces, two yellow ox-heart tomatoes, cut to size, a garden fresh pepper, split hulled hemp seeds, fresh mushrooms, cut, and chopped date pieces, a sprinkling of pure balsamic vinegar, and a sprinkling of pure unadulterated cold pressed virgin olive oil. Mix and place in a bowl, sprinkle with sea salt and ground pepper.

      When you eat this, every cell in your body screams out in an earth-shattering organism of delight. Your IQ zooms up to three hundred an fifty, you become instantly telepathic, and in love with everything you come in contact with and as an extra bonus, your weight drops off, and you become really good looking.
      Needless to say Jack I am absolutely stunning.

      All kidding aside, this is an easy and inexpensive way to feed your body what it needs; nutritionally sound food. Not cheap sugars and fats.

      My wife is the general managing director of this little company, check out their food. It pure unadulterated, and comes from all over the planet from the finest growers of organic seeds. They have many seed mixes which are proven sprouting winners. And really your imagination is the only thing in the way of what can done with this food source.
      Sprouts have come a long way from just Alfalfa sprouts on your sandwich.

          I beg to differ, we do not have claws, nor fangs…but we do have molars for grinding.
          Meat eating is a learnt response, we are natually vegetarian. But one might as well claim to be a communist.
          Meat today is polluted, with anti-biotics and steroids to say the least fo the facts.
          Industrial meat production has served up the cruelty in the manufactering of such meat products.
          In essence the negative feedback of fear and stress from cattle kept in massive stockyards for weeks before slaughter is what your are consuming along with other things put into meat. Stress and fear in animals are chemicals in the meat.
          Meat is the most costly protein to consume in the human body. It takes a enormous amount of energy to digest it as compared to say the protein in alphlfa, chick peas or even spirulina algae. Slow carbs in beans lentils and other varieties of seeds are a greater benifit to complete nutrition.
          There are easier less toxic ways to get protein, that eating animal products.

            well said, michael. and if i may – i highly recommend mushroom ‘meat’.
            especially for gravy. loads of recipes online, even mushroom bacon.
            they’re delicious, nutritious and they never try to get away.

            i also most highly recommend that the humans on this planet stop
            participating in the confining, torture, and slaughter of fellow sentient
            beings. it makes a bad joke of the clamor for freedom, peace, sovereignty,
            control over our bodies and lives, and most ridiculous of all under the
            circumstances, health and happiness.

    What can you expect from the medical school teachers who are tainted by corrupted Big Pharma? You get brainwashed students who become dangerous doctors.

  9. jacobite2015 says:

    Great post! When I saw this report go on mainstream media (surprisingly), I thought to myself I can hardly wait to see Jon’s post on this. Sobering assessment and spot-on!

    For the people addicted to the medical system (i.e., cartel), this report is sure to be “shock & awe” for many and downright depressing for others. I think it would now be incumbent for hospitals to have warning signs from the Surgeon General detailing that “medical care is the 3rd leading cause of death.” After all, it’s the least the the system can do considering all the destruction they cause and profit they make.

    I’m also LMAO at the these pro-vax/pro-drug/anti-supplement sites (e.g., “Respectful Insolence” & “Science-Based Medicine”), that continually bash alternative medicine & supplements ad nuseum. Really? How can their plethora of self-proclaimed medical experts seriously promote modern medicine against the foundation of their sacred system that is now the 3rd leading cause of death in the U.S.! Those people must be drenched in their own Illusion that practicing medicine is a safe and not hazardous to the patients!

    Sadly, I had a family member die of complications from a vaccine-induced autoimmune disease. I saw first hand the destruction caused by the system. The dangerous and toxic drugs that ravished her body as her doctors became indifferent & insensitive. Drug-induced organ failure and failed medical treatment at it’s best. She’s now one of those statistics.

    Unfortunately, I think little change will occur as too many people are addicted to the system and doctors stand behind and defend their profession with uncanny arrogance. Perhaps a little mainstream media attention that this study has received may help, but as you’ve mentioned before, the system is “too big to fail”…no surprises there.

  10. silverpen123 says:

    It doesn’t take a genius to observe many errors are made in this society because people fail at listening and communication skills. They are driven by their incessant inner chatter and unfounded fears or their arrogance that they know before they actually know. It happens in every area of daily living. I am constantly playing “mommy” to get verifications and clarity that the other person and I are on the same page, with everyone from my grown children to the mechanic and doctor and other various business dealings.

    Regarding doctors: I took my son to the doctor for some strange itchy skin infection. We thought it might be from eczema. We let the doctor see it. He had no clue, so he treated him for an infection and itch. That worked for a week, but not without an allergic reaction to the anti itch cream. My 23 year old son was in tears with fear that his man parts were gonna fall off. After discussing with my son the exact circumstances of how it started and if it had same or different behaviors as eczema, he and I figured it was jock itch gone wild. So we went back to the doctor and told him. He was treated for a fungus. Now, after almost a year of suffering and unable to hold a job he is finally healing.
    I have many stories that agree with your analysis of medical mistakes, so much so that I rarely use doctors. I educated myself on my own health for many years. That story was innocuous compared to some of my experiences. I try to be diligent, tenacious, and persistant, while not being moved by another person’s irritation at those qualities. I insist on KNOWING without doubt.

    I often say, “I hesitate to see someone who says they are “practicing” medicine. I’m not a guinea pig”.

  11. Laugh all you want at allopaths. At the end of the day, when you are truly sick and your quack medicines fail, we treat you. As for you anti vaxxers, what’s your big cure for polio? How about smallpox? Is there something ‘natural’ for that? Maybe you could put a poltice on your broken leg or smashed face or rub some bee balm on your melanoma. All I want to see you from you cranks is oen time you actually put together some real science to verify your bizarre claims. Or does merely claiming something works and telling everyone else to prove you wrong the way it works in your universe? Where I come from, when you make a claim it is upon the claimant to provide the proof. Allopaths have taken apart and destroyed so many ‘natural’ remedies that it’s now merely child’s play to refute you cranks. The day you guys make a ‘discovery’ or improve a treatment, let us know.

    No problem can be fixed unless it is identified then analysed to decide appropriate remedial action. My experience is that doctors are very good at doctoring leaving life to luck and the living.
