So where are the bodies?
Daily headlines from around the world speak of the numbers found dead from mudslides, avalanches, flooding, rockslides, not to mention wars, insurgencies, terror attacks, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, earthquakes etc etc etc. All in all the count is exceedingly large and I would imagine causes most of us heartache and grief when we watch the evening news.
These are the facts and statistics for the seen catastrophes and disasters. Yes even influenza numbers, those who might have succumbed to bacteria and viral infections make the evening news.
Nowhere in the mainstream media have I seen the catastrophic records of death by medicine reported. Has anyone actually ever done the work, sorted through all the reports and looked and complied all the statistics? The answer may surprise you – YES in fact it has been done and the information is readily available for anyone, including the Government and the Media to view report on and make suggestions about.
A group of researchers meticulously reviewed the statistical evidence and their findings are absolutely shocking. These researchers have authored a paper titled “Death by Medicine” that presents compelling evidence that today’s system frequently causes more harm than good.
This fully referenced report shows the number of people having in-hospital, adverse reactions to prescribed drugs to be 2.2 million per year. The number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections is 20 million per year. The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million per year. The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million per year. The most stunning statistic, however, is that the total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine is an astounding 783,936 per year.
It is now evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the US. (By contrast, the number of deaths attributable to heart disease in 2001 was 699,697, while the number of deaths attributable to cancer was 553,251.5) Source
So there you have it the American Medical System kills, maims, and injures a phenomenal number of innocent sick people every year, yet do we hear this reported in the media? NO! What we do hear though are how dangerous to the human body are vitamins. VITAL are vitamins. Vitamin actually means VITAL – (for life).
In a media release issued by the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, December 28, 2011, we read:
There was not even one death caused by a vitamin supplement in 2010, according to the most recent information collected by the U.S. National Poison Data System.
The new 203-page annual report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers, published online at http://www.aapcc.org/dnn/Portals/0/2010%20NPDS%20Annual%20Report.pdf, shows zero deaths from multiple vitamins; zero deaths from any of the B vitamins; zero deaths from vitamins A, C, D, or E; and zero deaths from any other vitamin.
Additionally, there were no deaths whatsoever from any amino acid or dietary mineral supplement.
Three people died from non-supplement mineral poisoning: two from medical use of sodium and one from non-supplemental iron. On page 131, the AAPCC report specifically indicates that the iron fatality was not from a nutritional supplement.
Fifty-seven poison centers provide coast-to-coast data for the National Poison Data System, “one of the few real-time national surveillance systems in existence, providing a model public health surveillance system for all types of exposures, public health event identification, resilience response and situational awareness tracking.”
Well over half of the U.S. population takes daily nutritional supplements. Even if each of those people took only one single tablet daily, that makes 165,000,000 individual doses per day, for a total of over 60 billion doses annually. Since many persons take far more than just one single vitamin or mineral tablet, actual consumption is considerably higher, and the safety of nutritional supplements is all the more remarkable.
Over 60 billion doses of vitamin and mineral supplements per year in the USA, and not a single fatality. Not one.
If vitamin and mineral supplements are allegedly so “dangerous,” as the FDA and news media so often claim, then where are the bodies?
Look at the figures once more.
2.2 Million People have adverse (dangerous) side effects from doctor prescribed drugs every year.
ZERO people taking vitamins and mineral supplements have a fatality NOT ONE!
Be afraid – be very afraid:
The total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine is an astounding 783,936 per year.
Personally I would rather take my vitamins, how about you?
Vitamins, which were previously referred as, vital amines, are figured out as the most essential nutrients of food. Since the discovery of vitamins, several other forms of vitamins were also discovered. Prominent amongst them are vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E and vitamin K. Vitamin B is again classified into different sub forms, which are, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, B4, B5, B6, B7, B9 and finally vitamin B12.
