During 1983-1992, between 90,000 to 110,000 Americans died from reactions to prescriptions drugs, 320 from over-the-counter drugs, three from all dietary supplements combined including contaminated L-tryptophan, and ZERO FROM HERBS.

Pharmaceutical companies want to keep people sick. They want to make others think that they are sick. And they do this for one reason: money.
Dr. John Virapen, former general manager of Eli Lilly (which he calls "one of the most evil companies in the world", Sweden, who worked more than 35 years in the pharmaceutical industry and was involved in the market launch of several drugs, some of which had massive side effects.
If you ever had any doubt about the fact that big pharma doesn't create cures, but customers, this book will dispel them.
Comment on Dr. John Virapen's book " Side Effects: Death - Confessions of a Pharma-Insider"
Medicines are of subordinate importance, because of their very nature they can only work symptomatically.
Hans Kusche, M.D.
Drugs tend to worsen whatever they're supposed to cure, which sets up a vicious circle.
Dr. Dean Black in Health at the Crossroads p. 20
Drug side effects are the fourth leading cause of death in the industrialized world. September 11, 2001, 2,600 innocent people died in this tragedy.The same number of people die from side effects of prescription drugs every ten days.
Quote based on the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), April 15, 1998 edition
"The latest FDA-approved drug for fighting colon cancer [Celecoxib] may be sitting in your kitchen. Rosemary, turmeric, grapes, a honey bee product called propolis: These all contain chemicals similar to a drug used to prevent the growth of cancerous cells in the large intestine; they work much in the same way." It is interesting that the FDA approved the drug, but not the natural substances that contained a natural version of the synthetic drug. See the book: Beyond Aspirin: Nature's Answer to Arthritis, Cancer & Alzheimer’s Disease (Hohm Press, 2000), by Thomas M. Newmark and Paul Schulick.
What hope is there for medical science to ever become a true science when the entire structure of medical knowledge is built around the idea that there is an entity called disease which can be expelled when the right drug is found?
John H. Tilden, M.D.
If you thumb through a Physician's Desk Reference, which is a very thick volume that details all the thousands and thousands of pharmaceuticals sold and prescribed by MD's, you will find that over and over and over again under the heading, "Mechanism of Action" it reads "UNKNOWN." In other words, MD's do NOT KNOW WHY OR HOW a very great percentage of the pharmaceuticals they prescribe work!
One scarcely ever hears of the client of an MD requesting that his or her doctor tell them how a particular drug the doctor is prescribing works. But somehow, when it comes to things alternative, things non-prescription, everyone wants to know how they work and what the mechanism of action is!
Also, the FDA is completely two-faced when it comes to approving pharmaceuticals versus approving non-pharmaceuticals. As I have already mentioned, the Physician's Desk Reference contains tremendous numbers of pharmaceuticals for which there is NO known mechanism of action---NO ONE can say how they work. But when Dr. ________(can't remember his name) tried to get his bovine cartilage approved by the FDA, the FDA turned him down because he could not provide them with the mechanism of action!
Personally, I do not need to know just how an alternative treatment works, provided I can find people I trust who reliably tell me it works, and provided I know that if it does not work for me, it will not hurt or kill me or my savings account.
The natural purpose and driving force of the pharmaceutical industry is to increase sales of pharmaceutical drugs for ongoing diseases and to find new diseases to market existing drugs. By this very nature, the pharmaceutical industry has no interest in curing diseases. The eradication of any disease inevitably destroys a multi-billion dollar market of prescription drugs as a source of revenues. Therefore, pharmaceutical drugs are primarily developed to relieve symptoms, but not to cure.
Dr. Matthias Rath
Drugs NEVER cure diseases. Drugs, such as antibiotics, kill bacteria but they kill bacteria indiscriminately which leads to serious bowel problems. In addition, ALL antibiotics have side effects, many that are very severe and can sometimes cause death. But in most cases drugs cover up the symptoms of the disease allowing the disease to get worse. If a patient recovers, it is the immune system that has done the job. If you nourish the immune system by diet, by decreasing stress and by the use of other natural methods, it can keep you free from ALL disease.
Lorraine Day, M.D., one of the women who cured themselves of breast cancer naturally
Insurance companies are cost plus providers which, have no incentive to reduce costs. They act as "gatekeeper" and for their role in the monopoly will not pay for any treatment which comes from outside the cartel. This nation is coming to understand this horror is a result of complacency as well as collusion between government agency, pharmaceutical interests and institutional medicine and its powerful financial influence over nearly every facet of the worldwide bureaucracy and mass media.
One in 15 hospital patients in the United States can expect to suffer from a prescription or over-the-counter medicine, and about 5 percent of these will die as a result!
The Washington Post, April 15, 1998, quoting the Journal of the American Medical Association
Doctors and Drug Industry have jointly killed thousand times more persons in peace time than all the war-time casualties put together in the last 500 years. There is a graphic book titled Doctors, Drugs and Devils, which traces the grotesque history of modern medicine. There is another equally damning evidence titled America the Poisoned, which records the evil effects of deadly chemicals destroying our environment, our wildlife and ourselves. And then there is that all-time famous treatise by Dr. Ivan Illich called The Medical Nemesis (or Limits to Medicine), which the drug companies bulk-purchased and burnt.
