1993—2003: Medical mistakes took 7.8 million lives

Organized medicine killed more Americans in last decade than all U.S. wars combined -by The Idaho Observer

The most comprehensive report on the state of U.S. healthcare ever conducted shows that organized medicine has killed 7,841,360 Americans in the last 10 years. “Our estimated 10-year total of 7.8 million iatrogenic [doctor-induced] deaths is more than all the casualties from all the wars fought by the U.S. throughout its entire history,” commented the Nutrition Institute of America (NIA), in its report, “Death By Medicine” (Oct., 2003).

The concept of the report was prompted by the fact that, while conventional medicine kills hundreds of thousands of Americans each year, government regulators attempt to ban and restrict the use of vitamins and herbs that kill no one.

Incidentally, the report, which resulted from the compilation and analysis of 94 U.S. hospitals and hundreds of medical journal articles, determined that medical error causes an astounding 783,936 deaths per year (and growing). “It is evident that the American medical system is itself the leading cause of death and injury in the U.S.,” the authors observed.

The purpose of the report was to memorialize the total failure of the American medical system and to “provide the basis for competent and compassionate medical professionals to recognize the inadequacies
of today’s system and at least attempt to institute meaningful reforms,” wrote the editors of Life Extension magazine.
