4TH LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN U.S. PRESCRIPTION DRUGS

Study confirms how dangerous prescription drugs are: Drug side effects make 2 million sick Properly prescribed medicine kills 106,OOO each year. --American Medical Association, April 1998.

KILL OVER 200,000 WHEN USED IMPROPERLY.

This number has risen dramatically in the last 10 years.

Prescription drug deaths is a complicated issue. It is known that a large number people die from the side effects of prescription drugs. So if heart disease is the leading cause of death, when a person dies while on a heart disease drug, did they die from heart disease or from the drug?

"Statistics: The only science that enables different experts using the same figures to draw different conclusions." --Evan Esar

Most often it's not the disease that kills the patient but the drugs used to treat the disease.
