Если вы думаете что это дорожно – транспортные происшествия – ошибаетесь...
Если вы думаете что это сердечно – сосудистые заболевания – ошибаетесь опять...
Курение, наркотики, войны – опять не угадали...
На первом месте причиной смертности в США и Канаде стоят... Осложнения от правильно прописанных докторами лекарств.
Еще раз: Осложнения от ПРАВИЛЬНО прописанных лекарств докторами...
А ещё бывают неправильно прописанные...
А ещё бывают осложнения приводящие к инвалидности, потере трудоспособности, к временной или постоянной потере здоровья, ухудшения самочуствия...
Но это уже совсем другая статистика....
Здесь только приводятся цифры и факты о смертности, как прямом результате приёма ПРАВИЛЬНО прописанных лекарств...

Death by prescription....

Terence Young’s Book Launch Speech
Massey College, Toronto, April 14, 2009

I have to thank Gloria for sticking with me. From February 2006 through September I would set my alarm for 5 a.m. six days a week, make a pot of tea, and head down to my basement office to research and write in my pajamas and housecoat until I was out of words – sometimes early afternoon, and sometimes later. I know my family thought I had lost it. But I knew if I got dressed before mid-afternoon I would find reason to do something else, or leave the house, and never be done my first draft.

I was focused, to say the least.

I wrote Death by Prescription to save lives. It is the fulfillment of an oath I made the day after Vanessa died – to find out why and how she died.

I knew I had to do it when I discovered that, to Johnson & Johnson and the people at Health Canada, Vanessa was just a statistic. Because Prepulsid had already officially stopped the hearts of eighty patients. And because prescription drugs taken as prescribed in hospitals are the fourth leading cause of death in Canada – about 10,000 deaths a year. Perhaps another 10,000 are caused outside hospitals.

One out of four unplanned admissions to internal medicine at our hospitals is due to a drug.

You will discover in Death by Prescription that the ways drugs are created and marketed worldwide are not about health, they are about money.

Readers will learn from the experts, just as I did, how we got into this position where pharmaceuticals dominate our medical care to the point that we spend more on drugs (in 2005 prescription and OTC amounted to $24 B) than we do on doctors ($18 B) while seriously injuring over 100,000 people a year in Canada, and over two million in the U.S.

In Death by Prescription you will learn:
That the Canadian Pharmacists’ Association – who have good business reasons to want people to buy drugs, report that between $2 – $9 billion is wasted every year on inappropriately used drugs.
How forty-one drugs have been pulled off the market since the sixties and no one at Health Canada even kept a record of why.
How one drug was responsible for the deaths of as many U.S citizens as the Viet Nam War.
How in Ontario, when a drug causes a patient death, the Coroner’s office routinely categorizes that as a ‘natural’ death.
How the big pharma companies cover up deaths by blaming them (in many cases with no evidence) on overdose, another drug, or the patient themselves.
How one decision by a lone drug reviewer at Health Canada could lead to over $100 million in sales for one drug if they approve it, yet reviewers attend closed-door meetings, where no minutes are taken, with drug company executives.
How doctors accept and distribute over $4 billion a year in ‘free samples’ of new drugs that are in fact in Phase Four of clinical trials, and any patient taking a new drug is part of a giant trial to which few have consented.
How the pharmaceutical companies spend $20,000 a year on average per doctor – mostly to “high scrip docs” – to create debts of gratitude the doctors have only one way to repay: by testing the newest and most expensive drugs on you and your family members.
Doctors are allowed to test new drugs on their own patients out of their offices, can be paid up to $20,000 per patient, and are not required to tell their patients they are earning up to $2 million on the side for reporting the drugs effects and reactions.

Even minor risks are often not worth it, because 90% of prescription drugs work half the time of less.

You will also become an empowered patient, learn where to get accurate, unbiased information on the drugs prescribed to you and your family, and help keep your family safe.

Take control of your own healthcare. Please read Death by Prescription. Thank you for coming here today.


Medical system is leading cause of death and injury in US.

Shocking statistical evidence is cited by Gary Null PhD, Caroly Dean MD ND, Martin Feldman MD, Debora Rasio MD and Dorothy Smith PhD in their recent paper Death by Medicine
( press here to download full report: http://www.newmediaexplorer.org/sepp/Death%20by%20Medicine%20Nov%2027.doc ) - October 2003, released by the Nutrition Institute of America.

"A definitive review and close reading of medical peer-review journals, and government health statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good. The number of people having in-hospital, adverse drug reactions (ADR) to prescribed medicine is 2.2 million. Dr. Richard Besser, of the CDC, in 1995, said the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections was 20 million. Dr. Besser, in 2003, now refers to tens of millions of unnecessary antibiotics. The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million. The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million. The total number of iatrogenic deaths shown in the following table is 783,936. It is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. The 2001 heart disease annual death rate is 699,697; the annual cancer death rate, 553,251.

Health Care expenditures in the US have reached 14% of the Gross National Product and a staggering $1.6 trillion in 2003. No wonder, one might be tempted to say. With such an appalling record of efficacy and such an unbelievable death rate for the treatments routinely administered, the current medical system can only be said to be in great need of deep reform.

Certainly it would appear more urgent to investigate the rationale, efficacy and relative cost-effectiveness of pharmaceutical medicine than to legislate restrictive rules for supplements of vital nutrients, as most governments and some international organisations are doing in these times.

Deadly Medical Mistakes Exposed

New York, New York - New information has been presented showing the degree to which Americans have been subjected to injury and death by medical errors. The results of seven years of research reviewing thousands of studies conducted by the NIA now show that medical errors are the number one cause of death and injury in the United States.

According to the NIA's report, over 784,000 people die annually due to medical mistakes. Comparatively, the 2001 annual death rate for heart disease was 699,697 and the annual death rate for cancer was 553,251.

Over 2.2 million people are injured every year by prescription drugs alone and over 20 million unnecessary prescriptions for antibiotics are prescribed annually for viral infections. The report also shows that 7.5 million unnecessary medical and surgical procedures are performed every year and 8.9 million people are needlessly hospitalized annually. Based on the results of NIA's report, it is evident that there is a pressing need for an overhaul of the entire American medical system.

The findings, described as a "revelation" by Martin Feldman, MD, who helped to uncover the evidence, are the product of the first comprehensive studies on iatrogenic incidents. Never before has any study uncovered such a massive amount of information with regard to iatrogenesis. Historically, only small individual partial studies have been performed in this area.

Carolyn Dean, MD, a physician and author who also helped to uncover the findings said, "I was completely shocked, amazed, and dismayed when I first added up all the statistics on medical death and saw how much allopathic medicine has betrayed us."

The Nutrition Institute of America is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organization that has been enlightening the public on health issues for nearly 30 years.

Прежде чем лекарство принимать, не мешает всегда прочитать, что от него ждать. И при малейшем предупреждении о побочных действиях - в мусор его :)
И вообще, лучше ничего не принимать. Лечишь одно, покалечишь другое

Солнышко, но тогда вообще лекарства нельзя принимать :) Вот например официальный перечень побочных эффектов практически самого безобидного из лекарств – аспирина:

SIDE EFFECTS: Most patients benefit from aspirin and other NSAIDs with few side effects. However, serious side effects can occur and generally tend to be dose related. Therefore, it is advisable to use the lowest effective dose to minimize side effects. The most common side effects of aspirin involve the gastrointestinal system and ringing in the ears. It can cause ulcerations, abdominal burning, pain, cramping, nausea, gastritis, and even serious gastrointestinal bleeding and liver toxicity. Sometimes, stomach ulceration and bleeding can occur without any abdominal pain. Black tarry stools, weakness, and dizziness upon standing may be the only signs of internal bleeding. Should ringing in the ears occur, the daily dose should be reduced. Rash, kidney impairment, vertigo, and lightheadedness can also occur.

Все правильно. Только часто лекарства принимают немеряно. После похода к врачу возвращаемся с ворохом рецептов, аккратненько их отовариваем, и вперед, к летальному исходу.
С лекарствами нужно быть очень осторожными, и принимать в крайнем случае, когда это совсем уж необходимо.
Сильная боль, тяжелая аллергическая реакция.
А это бывает нечасто. Если, конечно, нормальный человек, без серьезных отклонений в здоровье.
Мне тут недавно выписали. Почитала и поняла, что лучше без этого как-нибудь обойдусь. Уж слишком там серьезно с побочным действием.

А вот тут побочные эффекты от лекарства от популярного лекарства от аллергии, для которого и рецепт то не нужен – benadryl:

Side effects

Like many other first-generation antihistamines, diphenhydramine is a potent anticholinergic agent. This leads to profound drowsiness as a very common side-effect. Diphenhydramine has also been used as an anxiolytic because of these sedating side effects. However, other side effects include possibilities of motor impairment (ataxia), dry mouth and throat, flushed skin, rapid or irregular heartbeat (tachycardia), blurred vision at nearpoint owing to lack of accommodation (cycloplegia), abnormal sensitivity to bright light (photophobia), pupil dilation (mydriasis), urinary retention, constipation, difficulty concentrating, short-term memory loss, visual disturbances, hallucinations, irregular breathing, dizziness, irritability, itchy skin, confusion, decreased body temperature (generally in the hands and/or feet), erectile dysfunction, excitability, and delirium[10]. Some side effects such as twitching may be delayed until the drowsiness begins to cease and the person is in more of an awakening mode. Diphenhydramine also has local anesthetic properties, and has been used for patients allergic to common local anesthetics like lidocaine.[11]
Diphenhydramine can induce and/or exacerbate the symptoms of Restless Legs Syndrome.[citation needed]
The most common cardiac dysrhythmias associated with diphenhydramine overdose are sinus tachycardia, elongated S-T segment interval, and premature ventricular contraction.[citation needed]
Diphenhydramine is similar in its effects to dimenhydrinate, its 8-chlorotheophylline salt, although the latter is approximately 60% the potency in terms of required dosage and is slightly less sedating.
Some patients have an allergic reaction to diphenhydramine in the form of hives.[
Since 2002, the US FDA requires special labeling warning against using multiple products that contain diphenhydramine.[14] Diphenhydramine has been shown to build tolerance against its sedation effectiveness very quickly, with placebo-like results after a third day of common dosage.
Paradoxical reactions to diphenhydramine are documented, particularly amongst children, and it may cause excitation instead of sedation.
Because of potential for more severe side effects, diphenhydramine is on the "Beers list" to avoid in the elderly. (See NCQA’s HEDIS Measure: Use of High Risk Medications in the Elderly, http://www.ncqa.org/Portals/0/Newsroom/SOHC/Drugs_Avoided_Elderly.pdf).

Популярное лекарство. Так ведь нужно для себя индивидуально знать, какое лекарство подходит.
Я вот аллергиком бываю иногда, но мне ни одно современное лекарство не подходит. Только тавегил. А врачи смеются, что вы такое старье принимаете. Его уже и в аптеках нет. Из Москвы вожу.

Врачу-то что, выписал и забыл. И не одно. А нам-то потом расхлебывать :)
Это я к тому, что тщательнЕе нужно подходить к приему лекарств. И стараться поменьше их использовать
May. 5th, 2010 04:29 am (UTC)
все это конечно правильно... Но 99.9% населения доверяет врачам, или есле даже не доверяет, все равно полагается на них. Не все могут сами заниматся собственным лечением – это наука, требуящая обширных знаний.
