Death by Medicine  By Gary NullDeath by Medicine By Gary Null

DRUG IATROGENESIS Prescription drugs constitute the major treatment modality of scientific medicine. With the discovery of the germ theory, medical scientists convinced the public that infectious organisms were the cause of illness. Finding the cure for these infections proved much harder than anyone imagined. From the beginning, chemical drugs promised much more than they delivered. But far beyond not working, the drugs also caused incalculable side effects. The drugs themselves, even when properly prescribed, have side effects that can be fatal, as Lazarous study(1) showed. But human error can make the situation even worse. Medication Errors A survey of a 1992 national pharmacy database found a total of 429,827 medication errors from 1,081 hospitals. Medication errors occurred in 5.22% of patients admitted to these hospitals each year. The authors concluded that at least 90,895 patients annually were harmed by medication errors in the US as a whole.(37) A 2002 study shows that 20% of hospital ...
