How DANGEROUS are RX Drugs vs. How SAFE are Vitamins?
1. How DANGEROUS are Rx Drugs?
‘Properly prescribed’ prescription drugs are now the 4th leading cause of death in the USA.
Source: Harvard University, Center for Ethics, June 27, 2014
‘Properly prescribed’ means:
· Prescribed by your M.D.
· Fulfilled by your pharmacist
· Consumed in the ‘correct’ dose
· Result (for 128,000 patients/year in the USA) = Death
Don’t Become a Statistic.
In America, Rx drugs are a leading cause of illness, disability and death. It's not an overdose or a bad prescription, it's just the way that patient reacted unexpectedly.
Also, ‘newer’ Rx drugs aren’t always better- or safer. Prescription medicines new on the market are so dangerous that they have a one in five chance (20%) of causing serious complications, including death.
A careful review of hospital records shows that even when properly prescribed, every year prescription drugs are responsible for
· 1.9 million hospitalizations – for toxic side-effects & reactions. Adverse Drug Reactions are from Rx drugs that are "properly prescribed and administered."
· 840,000 will suffer a seriously adverse reaction – causing life-altering consequences, such as dialysis.
· 328,000 patients die from prescription drugs each year in the U.S. and Europe combined.
2. How SAFE are Vitamins?
Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, January 3, 2016
No Deaths from Vitamins. Absolutely None.
Safety Confirmed by America's Largest Database
(Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, January 3, 2016) There were no deaths whatsoever from vitamins in the year 2014. The 32th annual report from the American Association of Poison Control Centers shows zero deaths from multiple vitamins. And, there were no deaths whatsoever from vitamin A, niacin, vitamin B-6, any other B-vitamin. There were no deaths from vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, or from any vitamin at all.
Zero deaths from vitamins. Want to bet this will never be on the evening news? Well, have you seen it there? And why not?
After all, over half of the U.S. population takes daily nutritional supplements. If each of those people took only one single tablet daily, that makes about 170,000,000 individual doses per day, for a total of well over 60 billion doses annually. Since many persons take far more than just one single vitamin tablet, actual consumption is considerably higher, and the safety of vitamin supplements is all the more remarkable.
