the number of adverse drug effects that kill the patient has now sky rocketed to 10 000 to 100 000 depending on who is doing the reporting. the deaths have been attributed to a number of things:
doctor incompetence. ( wrong drug prescribed)
lost in translation ( right drug prescribed - wrong drug given pharmacy)
doctor lack of knowledge of possible drug interactions.
doctor lack of knowledge of monograph listing of possible side effects.
Suppression of research that showed that the drug didn't work or that the drug was actually out and out dangerous.
it has been found that only 1/3 of research is actually being published. much more data is not being reported due to the fact that
1. the reseach is being funded by the drug manufacturers
2. the research showed that the drug in question didn't work or was clearly dangerous.
AS is often the case, the people first to stand up to tell the truth are the first to be shot & die or be ridiculed. Dr. oliviera in Canada, stood up to the financial backers of her reseach when she discovered that their drug appeared to be detrimental to her patients. her hospital backed the drug company...
REsearchers are not always wonderful do-gooders who want to solve world hunger and bring about world peace. There are not always independent scientists doing their work on their spare time paid for out of their own pocket. they are people just like you and I. Some are good and some are not so good. TO deny that money is involved or that money is a prime motivator is absurd.
The hospital is still the place to go but you have to ask questions of the women and men in white. Knowledge is still the key.
AAS- have killed how many people? directly attributable.
