We have been talking about Dr Gregor’s video for last two days. He starts out talking about the top 15 causes of death in the US. At the end he mentions a 16th top cause of death which ranks as #6 on the list. It is ADR, Adverse Drug Reactions. Over 100,000 Americans die from this each year. It does NOT include deaths due to addictions or taking the drugs improperly. These are people who take the drug as prescribed but die from it. So #6 is our medical community issuing us drugs that are more harmful than the diseases we take them for. I am not blaming our doctors, most are good people who want to help but have been trained that diseases are handled by isolating symptoms and then prescribing drugs for the symptoms. They do NOT cure anything and they can kill us.
