The Leading Cause of Death in the USA

What if I told you that the no.1 killer in the United States is not incarcerated and is even amassing a huge amount of wealth for its crimes? Killing at least 783,936 people every year. It is not a person, nor a thing, but a system. A system that has brainwashed us by artful marketing, scare tactics and bewitched us to believe that only a certain class of people can interpret our problems, while the problem grows worse and worse, and more expensive every single year. Yes! I am talking about the Medical System.

The healthcare system cost us 1.2 trillion dollars annually, that is a sixth of America’s debt inflation. Although this much money is spent, the United States of America’s healthcare system is ranked 37th in the world, rendering it the worst amongst developed countries. It should make sense thinking that the amount of money and time that is invested into creating new drugs and constructing high-end equipment means that the health of its population should be bettered, however, this is not the case. In reality, it may be killing more individuals than saving them. Do not get me wrong, emergency medicine may be very important and has saved many lives, but a lot of what is practiced in conventional medicine may be unnecessary.  

 

America is the most medicated nation on earth, with some 70 percent of Americans taking prescription drugs and more than half receive at least two prescriptions. From 1972 to 1995, the Office of Technology Assessment conducted studies on health care in the United States. The Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) was created by Congress to analyze scientific and technical issues in America. They concluded in a report in 1995 that, “Only 10-20% of all procedures used in medical practice have been shown to be efficacious by controlled trial”. Which means at least 1 in 10 procedures done were not effective in achieving the intended results.  

 

Another independent study conducted by the Nutrition Institute of America came to the conclusion in a report called “Death by Medicine”, that the leading cause of death is not a disease or person but conventional medicine. They found that the iatrogenic death rate in the US — deaths caused by doctors and/or medical treatments, is 783,936 a year. That is estimated to be approximately 8 million deaths in one decade at the altar of conventional medicine — more than the deaths of Americans in every war the nation has ever fought.

 

Even more troubling than this, the British Medical Journal published a new study suggesting most medical errors go unobserved, at least in the official record. Several studies and reports show that as few as 5% and no more than 20% of iatrogenic acts are ever reported. This implies that if medical errors were entirely and precisely reported, the annual iatrogenic death toll would be much higher than 783,936. It does not only stop at just errors but drugs that are intended for patients to take are also killing them. The FDA, show that prescription drugs, when taken as directed, kill about 125,000-150,000 annually. Why isn’t this stopped? Why aren’t the perpetrators of such crimes arrested or underfunded?

A 2003 study found that almost half of the faculty at medical schools who serve on institutional review boards (IRB) to advise on clinical trial research also serve as consultants to the pharmaceutical industry. The study authors were concerned that such representation could cause potential conflicts of interest. A news release by Dr. Erik Campbell, the lead author, said, “Our previous research with faculty has shown us that ties to the industry can affect scientific behavior, leading to such things as trade secrecy and delays in publishing research. It’s possible that similar relationships with companies could affect IRB members’ activities and attitudes.” In other words, scientific research will more than likely be in favor of Big Pharma.

With the discovery of the “germ theory,” medical scientists convinced the public that infectious organisms were the cause of illness. Which fostered research into medicine to kill “germs”. However, most diseases are lifestyle related. The US Dept. Health & Human Services states, “our nation’s leading killer diseases are largely lifestyle related and can, therefore, be prevented or delayed. They are not prevented by vaccines or cured by pills and procedures. They are largely an extension of our health-damaging behaviors – our use of tobacco, lack of exercise and our rich diet.” Dr. Denis Burkitt, the Discoverer of Burkitt’s Lymphoma stated, “The concept that western diseases are lifestyle-related and therefore potentially preventable and reversible is the most important medical discovery of the twentieth century.”  Wow, you would think that it is some type of expensive equipment or specialized pill created in a lab, no, it is our lifestyle who is the main culprit.

 

The Bible says,

“Go up into Gilead, and take balm, O virgin, the daughter of Egypt: in vain shalt thou use many medicines; for thou shalt not be cured.” (Jeremiah 46:11)

No one who has ever taken pharmaceuticals has ever been cured of their disease. Don’t become a statistic in the leading cause of death in the USA. The real cure that you need is from the Lord.

This cure is on a condition of obedience as written in Exodus 15:26,

“And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.”
