Shocker: comparing deaths from medical treatment, vitamins, all US wars

Shocker: Comparing deaths from medical treatment, vitamins, all US wars

by Jon Rappoport

March 13, 2018

Why do I keep writing on this subject?

Hmm, let’s see—because extraordinary numbers of people are dying, and are severely maimed. That’s a pretty good reason.

Because medical and government and press authorities are lying through their teeth and covering up the numbers.

Because some of the people who are dying could be people you know and love, in your family, in your circle of friends.

Because the facts are clear—no speculation or opinion required.

Because this is not a one-time occurrence. It is ongoing.

Because I’m going out on a limb, with outrageous self-confidence, and assuming that continuing to live is better than experiencing an early and unnecessary death.

Because you might send this article to people who will learn about this shocking subject for the first time.

Because, no matter which country you live in, medical destruction parallels what has been happening in the US.

People want to believe medical science gives us, at any given moment, the best of all possible worlds.

And of course, the best of all possible worlds must have its enemies: the quacks who sell unproven snake oil.

So let’s look at some facts.

As I’ve been documenting for years, the medical cartel has been engaged in massive criminal fraud, presenting their drugs as safe and effective across the board—when, in fact, these drugs have been killing and maiming huge numbers of people, like clockwork.

I’ve cited the groundbreaking review, “Is US Health Really the Best in the World?”, by Dr. Barbara Starfied (Journal of the American Medical Association, July 26, 2000), in which Starfield reveals the American medical system kills 225,000 people per year—106,000 as a direct result of pharmaceutical drugs.

I’ve now found another study, published in the same Journal, two years earlier: April 15, 1998; “Incidence of Adverse Drug Reactions in Hospitalized Patients.” It, too, is mind-boggling.

The authors, led by Jason Lazarou, culled 39 previous studies on patients in hospitals. These patients, who received drugs in hospitals, or were admitted to hospitals because they were suffering from the drugs doctors had given them, met the following fate:

Every year, in the US, between 76,000 and 137,000 hospitalized patients die as a direct result of the drugs.

Beyond that, every year 2.2 million hospitalized patients experience serious adverse reactions to the drugs.

The authors write: “…Our study on ADRs [Adverse Drug Reactions], which excludes medication errors, had a different objective: to show that there are a large number of ADRs even when the drugs are properly prescribed and and administered.”

So this study had nothing to do with doctor errors, nurse errors, or improper combining of drugs. And it only counted people killed who were admitted to hospitals. It didn’t begin to tally all the people taking pharmaceuticals who died as consequence of the drugs, without being admitted to hospitals.

I found the link to this study at the Dr. Rath Health Foundation, in the middle of a very interesting article by Dr. Aleksandra Niedzwiecki: “Commentary on the Safety of Vitamins.”

Here are two key quotes from her article:

“In 2010, not one single person [in the US] died as a result of taking vitamins (Bronstein, et al, (2011) Clinical Toxical, 49 (10), 910-941).”

“In 2004, the deaths of 3 people [in the US] were attributed to the intake of vitamins. Of these, 2 persons were said to have died as a result of megadoses of vitamins D and E, and one person as a result of an overdose of iron and fluoride. Data from: ‘Toxic Exposure Surveillance System 2004, Annual Report, Am. Assoc. of Poison Control Centers.’”

Summing up:

No deaths from vitamins (2011), and three deaths (2004) from vitamins/iron/fluoride.

106,000 deaths every year from pharmaceutical drugs. (Starfield).

Between 76,000 and 137,000 deaths from pharmaceutical drugs every year in hospitalized patients. (Lazerou).

The FDA and its “quack-buster” allies go after vitamins, demean “unproven remedies,” and generally take every possible opportunity to warn people about “alternatives,” on the basis that they aren’t scientifically supported.

Meanwhile, the very drugs these mobsters are promoting, and certifying as safe and effective, are killing and maiming people at a staggering rate.

The masses are treated to non-stop PR on the glories of the US medical system.

In the Wikipedia entry, “US military casualties of war,” the grand total of all military deaths in the history of this country, starting with the Revolutionary War, is 1,312,612.

In any given 10 years of modern medical treatment? 2,250,000 deaths (Starfield).

Consider how much suppression is necessary to keep the latter number under wraps.

And oh yes, one more thing: none of the studies cited above examine the destruction wrought by vaccines. That’s forbidden.

    Also, factor in hospital-acquired infections. Three days after gall bladder surgery, 40-yr-old daughter developed pneumonia. Twenty-six days in ICU w/ diagnosis of ARDS (adult respiratory disease syndrome). TOD: 10:49. Some entities profit handsomely . . . some human beings Don’t.

    I want to get through to Jon….I am a Glioblastoma Multifome Grade 4 Survivor. I was diagnosed July 22, 2013. A friend turned me onto Jon today. I wrote a book on cancer to help people beat cancer. I want to help. I am not trying to get rich I want to spread the word.

  4. Some of those people may have died regardless of whether or not they received medical treatment, but the number is still, as you correctly state, shocking. At least the ones who died in wars were fighting for something, rather than simply at the hands of exploitative drug pushers.
    An analysis just came from Harvard University/CNN which shows that doctors who prescribe opioids in high amounts also receive large sums (up to six figures) from the drug manufacturers who make the opioid pain killers. The scary thing is that that isn’t uncommon for a largevariety of drugs, not just painkillers.

    • miguelhud says:

      Unfortunately the ones who died “fighting for something” in wars were usually not fighting for what they were told they were fighting for. Those wrongfull deaths are usually for a few elites to expand their power and influence at the cost of the lives of our sons and daughters.

      • That’s a good point. Certain wars though, like the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and WWII, are exceptions. I know that Prescott Bush was involved with WWII, but U.S. soldiers still fought to end a terrible regime.

  5. Seyi Sandra says:

    Wow! This is scary. I live in London and i’ve seen first hand, people having severe reaction to prescribed drugs. Great article!

  6. Sue says:

    I have seen (in mainstream news stories) natural health practitioners arrested and charged with fraud when a terminally ill patient died in their care. But the pharmaceutical cut, burn, poison practitioners have patients dying right and left, and are rewarded, not arrested.

    • Sunshine2 says:

      I’ve noticed this too Sue. It’s incredibly evil. In most cases, the people dying under naturopathic care were seeking alternative treatment in a last ditch effort after accepted allopathic medicine not only failed them, but put them in much worse shape than they were before.

    The toxic amiodarone drug is responsible for killings tens of thousands of people. It has a sinister founding and was never approved by the FDA. It was used as a blackmailing tool by the AMA to get into this country. It is being prescribed for off label uses in this nation and the stories of the horrible and torturous deaths that result are many. Read about them on Nothing is being done to stop these criminal doctors who keep prescribing this poison.

  9. Thanks so much for this awesome post and for all your honest reporting over the years. We live in very dark times indeed, where the average person has no clue how horribly corrupted the world has become. I was rudely woken from my slumber when I had a nearly lethal adverse reaction to a drug called Levaquin, a synthetic antibiotic made by J$J. Fluoroquinolones, or FQs, are from a class of drugs normally used for chemo but your average ignorant pill peddling doctor doesn’t know this, which is why people keep showing up in our support groups having been given too much at once or for too long of a duration or in conjunction with other drugs that cause toxic reactions in our bodies, not that these drugs are not dangerous enough to cause people to drop dead after one or two pills by themselves. It’s like giving someone chemo with no warning and then doubling the dose and tripling the duration on a whim, like my idiot doctor did, and then he ignored the warnings in the product literature he obviously never bothered to read and prescribed a growing number of other toxic chemicals as my health quickly deteriorated. In a matter of weeks I went from a few medications to umpteen and no one caring for me thought anything of it.

    Drugs are not tested adequately by themselves, let alone in combinations with each other, and according to the FDA, their pathetic failure of a reporting system only gathers between 1% and, at best, 10% of all adverse drug reactions. Honestly, 1% is pretty optimistic. The truth is that for every one of the people who realized the drug they took was the problem and who either convinced their doctor to report it or who reported it on their own there are at least a hundred who did not, probably closer to a thousand, especially with FQs, because victims usually have a delayed reaction. Who thinks of an antibiotic they took several seasons ago when some tendons spontaneously rupture or a lung collapses or a muscle tears or they get brain-fog or shaking of all sorts or their vision suddenly worsens or they start getting anxiety attacks for no reason or tinnitus or their nails fall off and hair falls out or their joints hurt or they sunburn in minutes or get a hernia or they get blood clots and broken blood vessels or insomnia or muscle weakness and wasting or gastrointestinal disasters or neuropathy or any of hundreds of other unusual health issues set in? Worse yet, most victims suffer a syndrome where they suffer all of these debilitating conditions at once or in rapid succession. We call this drug induced state of half-death being “floxed”, coming from their generic names which all end in “…floxacin.” Levaquin is levofloxacin and Cipro, it’s evil sister from Bayer is ciprofloxacin.

    The harsh truth is that BIG PHARMA goes out of their way to mislead the medical community about the safety profile of FQs even more than usual, meaning doctors are absurdly and insanely over-confident in them. I was the closing speaker at a unique meeting with multiple panels of prestigious doctors from both FDA and CDC held at the FDA building in Baltimore on Nov 5, 2015 which resulted in sweeping changes to the conditions FQs are approved for as well as an additional black box warning and a sharply worded announcement that FQs were only to be used when other options had been exhausted, not as a first choice. One slide at this meeting was more telling than any others. It seems that victims of Fluoroquinolone Associated Disabilities, or FQAD, self report adverse reactions more than 20 times as average. This didn’t happen in a vacuum. The executives at Bayer and J$J coldly calculated the additional amount of revenue that they would generate as a huge swath of people suddenly started needing all sorts of new medications they never needed before as well as implants, bandages, ointments, walkers, and many other things they just happen to sell. This sounds like a crazy conspiracy theory to the clueless, but really, what are the chances that they just happened across a policy that results in massive increases in profits and that it’s just a coincidence that they are fighting us tooth and nail at every turn as we try to raise awareness or improve policies and that doctors refuse to believe what should be quite obvious? All the top executives from all the major drug companies are criminals of the highest order who should die behind bars for crimes against humanity, preferably at a date and time set by the court.

    I urge everyone to google some terms from my post and follow where they go. Everyone needs to know this because they hand FQs out like candy and then deny it’s the drugs as your body and mind and life fall apart. It is impossible to exaggerate just how HORRIFIC a reaction is, with permanent disabling damage, not just a rough ride that ends after a little while. I also urge you to look into this further and to give us some coverage in your commentary, Jon. We need your help. We are the tip of the iceberg for a much larger problem, one you have covered so well here and throughout your work, but our case is about as severe as it gets. We are the poster-boys for this problem, so to speak, although most of us are women. Doses for drugs are standardized so women end up having more adverse reactions, but that’s a whole different can of worms. Please, look into this everyone. Best wishes to all!

    Thanks Jon! And thanks Mark Girard for that look into the fluoroquinolone debacle. And Jon, on behalf the FQAD (Fluoroquinolone Associated Disability) community a big thanks! With over 27000 followers on twitter, your voice could have a powerful impact with a few well placed tweets about fluoroquinolones hint hint lol! Regards and thanks again!

  11. Cheryl says:

    The evil of pharmaceutical money in our politics and agencies, designed to protect the people, influencing our medical practitioners and our politicians is so engrained in our North Western culture I am not sure it can be extracted without a lot of blood letting. Fluroquinolones took away my life….nearly. It certainly took away my health, ability to work and walk, took away my children’s primary parent and became my caregivers at 17 yes old. So many drugs are hurting, disabling and killing so many of us and we are left helpless and hopeless. How can we collectively change this outcome?

    • Jodi Thomas says:

      I am in the exact same boat as Cheryl. Three to four days of Levaquin for a suspected sinus infection (and possible uti) has crippled me for the past 20 months. I am a previously active 48 yr old widow of eight years and the sole caregiver for a now-14-year-old. Being an attorney and retired judge, I should have no problem returning to work when my son is a few years older. However, I truly am concerned that I will never be able to work again. Within two weeks of taking the Levaquin, MRI’s showed tendinosis in both Achilles and both knees, as well as a PCL tear in my left knee and two meniscus tears in my right knee. Despite following all of the proper health protocols and being an optimistic person, I continue to be unable to heal these injuries, and I also now have tendinosis in my wrists, thumbs and elbows. I have extreme difficulty even going up and down stairs. The Levaquin poisoning also triggered the latent mono virus from when I was a teen, and I now have chronic Epstein-Barr episodes. I’m sure there is even more damage internally of which I am not yet aware. Lastly, numerous studies have shown that our DNA is permanently damaged by Levaquin and all of the fluoroquinolone antibiotics. Thank you so much for writing an article expressing things that I would love to scream out from the rooftop!

  12. Bob Paddock says:

    The Big Pharma drug Levaquin contributed directly to my late wife’s suicide. 😦

  13. Terry Adams says:

    Thanks again Jon.. People must understand that there is, and has been for decade after decade, a DEPOPULATION agenda. The powers-that-shouldn’t-be believe that there are too many of us normal, everyday oxygen breathing humans on this planet, and they fear we will consume all their resources. It isn’t hard to grasp or fathom.. accept? perhaps.. But look at what you are dealing with.

  14. Kelly says:

    Fluoroquinolone antibiotics ruined my life. In most cases, they do more harm than good… yet they are still heavily prescribed to people on a daily basis for non life threatening conditions like sinus infections, ear infections, UTI’s, etc. I can tell you from personal experience that this class of drugs ruin peoples lives. I’ve been living in 5 years of pain because of them, yet the FDA wants to regulate vitamins and homeopathic treatments… it makes no sense.

  15. walt says:

    There’s a reason they call it; Medical “Practice”.
    And you’re the guinea pig.

  16. Sharon Figler says:

    Doctors use Fluoroquinolones during surgery as a prophylactic. That is what happened to me. No infection! After 11 years- 4 joint and spine surgeries still in pain 24/7!

  17. joel says:

    In 2015 i cured my late stage squamous cell skin cancer. I was a wreck, with painful oozing sores coming out of my face and chest area. I was slated for demolition. The conventional treatments were totally unacceptible.
    I tried Cannabis, Turmeric, frankencense, cleansing and total lifestyle changes but it wasn’t working….
    Finally i pulled the ace out of my sleeve. It was Black Salve to the rescue!
    This simple formula of 3 herbs and Zinc Chloride was a total game changer. I purchased one small jar of this for about 20 $. —-enough to —- 100’s of “cancers”.
    This is completely threatening to the skin cancer “industry”. They have nothing that works this well.
    Blood root, chapparal, soursop, zinc chloride…
    This combo allows us to carry on, to avoid toxic surgeries, chemo, and radiation. IT allows us to take charge of our health and our destiny, to NOT, place ourselves in the hands of the evil doctors.
    Jon’s hammering away at soviergnty, freedom and the individual is very important. The alternative is suffering, confusion and death. I am alive to tell you this
    Aloha, peace….
