100,000 Americans Die Each Year from Prescription Drugs, While Pharma Companies Get Rich | News & Politics | AlterNet

Author Melody Petersen quotes a study that estimates more than twice as many Americans die from prescription drugs than who are killed in car accidents each day. The study looked only at deaths from known side effects. That is, those deaths didn’t happen because the doctor made a mistake and prescribed the wrong drug, or the pharmacist made a mistake in filling the prescription, or the patient accidentally took too much. So the actual figure could be much higher than 100,000 per year.

Even more worrying are the number of drugs now being prescribed for children.

London Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston from Foods for Life says " many of these drugs are totally unnecessary and the conditions could be sorted with simple nutrition therapy by getting the body to work more efficiently and optimally by making sure the body has enough of the raw materials it needs to do it's job properly. It's all about balance"
