A definitive review of medical peer-reviewed journals and government health statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good. This fully referenced report shows the number of people having in-hospital, adverse reactions to prescribed drugs to be 2.2 million per year.

The number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections is 20 million per year.  The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million per year. The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million per year.

The most stunning statistic, however, is that the total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine is an astounding 783,936 per year783,936 per year.  It is now evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the US.
