Millions of Hospital Stays Due to Adverse Drug Reactions

An article in American Medical News (May 9, 2011) stated that, in 2008, there were more than 2.7 million hospital stays and emergency room visits due to adverse drug reactions. That is a lot of people harmed by prescription drugs and that is a lot of health care dollars being spent. With all this talk of Obama-care and how to save money in health care, I say start with the drugs. Americans take too many prescription medications that offer little benefit.

I have written extensively about this in my book, Drugs That Don’t Work and Natural Therapies that Do. Big Pharma would have you believe that there is a pill for everything that ails you. However, nothing could be farther from the truth. Nearly all of the patented medications promoted by Big Pharma block receptors or poison enzymes in the body. I can guarantee you, for the long-term, it is not a good idea to block receptors or poison enzymes.

What can you do? Avoid prescription medications if you can. Clean up your diet and exercise more. Make sure that you maintain good hydration. These simple ideas can help you avoid becoming sick and being prescribe medications.
