What is the Leading Cause of Death in U.S. ?


Statistics seem to indicate that #1 cause of death in U.S. is Treatment…

Drugs and Doctors May be the Leading Cause of Death in U.S.

(part of an article by Joseph Mercola, D.O.)

The original study was published by Dr. Starfield, a full professor of public health at the most prestigious hospital in the United States, Johns Hopkins. Her study never had the headline in it, but instead listed the published research documenting the various causes of deaths that doctors contributed to.  I simply added them all up and compared them to cardiovascular diseases and cancer and came up with the above headline, which was widely circulated on the Internet.

Interestingly, when I contacted Dr. Starfield by e-mail she disagreed with the headline I had come up with. She did not feel that doctors were the third leading cause of death, but thought they were the number one cause of death because of their failure to inform their patients about the truth of health. Now this might be a bit too harsh as even if people understand health truth they have freedom of choice and can choose to use sugar, soda and drugs (legal and illegal) to compromise their health and longevity.
However, JAMA actually published a study a year earlier that could support that doctors may be the leading cause of death in the United States.

Why doctors are more dangerous than guns

This investigation by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, reveals why you are 6200% more likely to be killed by your doctor than by a homicidal shooter. This is based on U.S. government statistics from the Centers for Disease Control, combined with doctor-caused deaths published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
These data show that FDA-approved prescription drugs kill 290 Americans every single day, meaning that for mass shootings to approach that number, you’d have to see a Colorado Batman movie massacre take place EVERY HOUR of every day, 365 days a year.

That’s how dangerous doctors and FDA-approved prescription medications really are. Read more at: http://www.naturalnews.com

Kills More People Than Heart Disease or Cancer (But Hardly Anyone Knows)

By Dr. Mercola

The latest data on the leading causes of deathin the United States has been released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The report, which is based on 2010 data, lists the 10 leading causes of death as follows:

  1. Diseases of the heart
  2. Cancer
  3. Chronic lower respiratory diseases
  4. Cerebrovascular diseases (stroke)
  5. Accidents (unintentional injuries)
  6. Alzheimer’s disease
  7. Diabetes mellitus
  8. Nephritis, nephritic syndrome and nephrosis (kidney disease)
  9. Influenza and pneumonia
  10. Intentional self-harm (suicide)

In an analysis, 24/7 Wall St. determined that the costs to the economy for these top 10 causes, including not only direct medical care but also the indirect loss of productivity, amounts to a whopping $1.1 trillion!
However, there is one leading cause of death that was left off of this list, and when that is factored in the costs to the economy, and the death toll itself, is actually even higher.

The CDC Left Conventional Medical Care Off of Their Death List — It Should be #1

Over a decade ago, Professor Bruce Pomerance of the University of Toronto concluded that properly prescribed and correctly taken pharmaceutical drugs were the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. More recently, an article authored in two parts by Gary Null, PhD, Carolyn Dean, MD, ND, Martin Feldman, MD, Debora Rasio, MD, and Dorothy Smith, PhD, describes in excruciating detail how the modern conventional American medical system has bumbled its way into becoming the leading cause of death and injury in the United States.

    I wonder if the Colorado Batman Shooter and all of the other shooters were actually on a prescribed medicine when they committed their crime?

    I have had the trust & privilege from 1971 through 1994 to work many of the service functions in the emergency medical field. I have seen lots of death, treated lots of people and wrapped a few bodies up to take them to the morgue from the ER. I have also Organized and supported many a strike of medical interns, residents and nurses for the better delivery of health care for the public. In each of those major strikes in LA County they turned down the money and less hours and demanded better treatment for their patients and the public

    I have been fired any number of times for insubordination of my administrative function when I opposed the needless self serving medical hierarchy and sentence of death, through false and self serving practice of medicine, upon an unsuspecting public.

    I have learned two things. 1. It is however the practice of medicine with emphasis upon the word practice. 2 Often it is 90% politics & 10% the delivery of medicine (services). Your article and many like it may serve to awaken a sleeping public that has chosen to be asleep. Look at how many oppose any move towards any type of government intervention in the form of a national health program with cost controls. May be you need to put up bill boards around the country like the one with this article.

    People need to first read in context your articles on “We the Sheeple”. I also recommend reviewing what happens in many of the shootings like the movie Theater in CO. People ran rather than properly reacting in order to take some meaning full action other than to just lay down and wait it out or cry.

    When Congresswoman Gifford was shot and others killed only 2 people took action. One tackled the person, he did not hide and run away. The other who had a CCWP drew his gun but did not shot because he was not sure of whom the culprit was in seeing two people struggling with a gun. But he did observe the situation and then correctly acted assisting in the disarming of the shooter. To often the police (government types) would have just shoot up the place and let the bullets fall where them may. Not a correct action.

    My point is until we stop being hypnotized spectators, which is what actions movies teach you i.e. some hero will take care of it, How Did That Work Out For the Bateman Movie Crowd? We will not cure the death problem at the hands of the “Medical Industrial Complex”. And the problem will not be cured by knee jerk reactions either i.e lets just shoot them all (bull doze the whole thing) and sort it out later on.

    Self responsibility and self examination of the contents of our hearts and minds, that’s by Spirit (God if you are in to that although I’m told God says that word has a bad rap and not to use it anymore) will eliminate many a health problem.

    The real problem is To many Sheeple. I don’t even eat lamb and don’t hang out with active duty sheep as a rule.

    Peace & Blessings Always

    I assume we’re talking about dangerous drugs so I’ll tell you about my ordeal with there toxins.
    A few years back I was prescribed an antidepressant; Zoloft. What a beauty this thing was (is). After a few days on it I had a muscle pull in every area of my body. Shortly after that I ended up with a femoral hernis that landed me in surgery that just barely saved my life. I say that because I turned diabetic on the way to the hospital where I made it just in time.
    The very next morning after surgery the surgeon asked me: “What medication are you taking?” My response was: “Zoloft!” His response was: “Well you’re not going to get that here!” Enough said.
    I have more nightmares to tell you about drugs and my side effects, if you want to hear about them.
