Iatrogenocide – Mass Murder By Medicine
Of all issues concerning Americans, more than the middle eastern wars, more than 911, The “muslim threat” or the alien agenda; illegal or from outer space, this is the number one pressing problem for Americans, right now. The collective death rate from all of medicine combined is approx. anywheres from 800,000 – 1,000,000 a year. Thats approx. 2200 – 2700 plus A DAY. And this is from reported medical mistakes, many go unreported, for fear of reprisal or lawsuit. The death rate in my mind is so high, its incomprehensible, when you start to put it in perspective with other yearly/daily death rates of varying causes.
I first heard of this inordinarily high death rate first from Dr Joel Wallach who cited JAMA 2000 July issue that stated, “225000 deaths every year in hospitals alone.” So I started scouring the net and book stores for books on the subject, as of 3 years ago, the 3 main sources for research were, JAMA July 2000 article, “License to Kill” by Andrew Robbins and the Death by Medicine article signed By Gary Null, Ph.D., PhD; Carolyn Dean MD, ND; Martin Feldman, MD; Debora Rasio, MD; and Dorothy Smith, PhD
And to be clear these deaths are not from the disease they first signed into the hospital for, they are deaths irrelevant from whatever ailment they had at time. Staph infections, hospital mistakes, botched operations etc. Drs dirty hands alone cause 250 deaths A DAY. That alone is far higher than the collective deaths, per day in the middle east, where there is a war and they are actually trying to kill each other. Medicine is supposed to heal, correct ?
Death statistics. I started using the internet to compile “death statistics” ; what caused the most deaths. Was it alcohol? Cigarettes? Car accidents? Guns? Heart disease? Cancer? War? Or the treatments for various illnesses? I figured the fastest way to put something in perspective was “How dangerous is it ? Its likelyhood to cause death” So I started with guns, since they have been painted in a bad light with all the accidents and crimes that are reported . Half of all gun related deaths are suicide.
Cause Deaths Per Year
Suicides by firearm 18.000
Murders by firearm 14,000
Total accidental deaths per year (all causes) 96,000
Motor vehicle accidental deaths per year 43,000
Alcohol 75,000 – 100,000
Heart Disease* 500,000 – 831,272
Breast Cancer* 41,100
Vietnam War (over ten years) 59,000
“We lost almost 59,000 men and women during the 16 years of Viet Nam. As of 5 years after the war was officially over, we had 150,000 Viet Nam Vets that had committed suicide.” http://www.capveterans.com/caprd_004.htm
Viet Nam Vets that had committed suicide 150,000
In hospital alone 225,000
Hospital infections 100,000
Total Combined Medical System 800,000 – 1,000,000
Estimated 10-Year Death Rates from Medical Intervention 7,841,360
* Its not indicated whether or not medical intervention caused the death or not. Or if it was the disease alone. This is a wide gray area, that needs more investigation.

Death by Medicine
By Gary Null, Ph.D., PhD; Carolyn Dean MD, ND; Martin Feldman, MD; Debora Rasio, MD; and Dorothy Smith, PhD http://www.whale.to/a/null9.html
“Older people’s gun deaths are most likely to be suicides. Suicides typically make up 56.5% of all gun deaths according to the Bureau Of Justice Statistics. In fact, drugs and suicides account for more than 2 out of every 3 gun deaths in the US”
“According to “Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence,” gun-death statistics in the U.S. for 1998 are as follows:
“In 1998, 30,708 people in the United States died from firearm-related deaths – 12,102 (39%) of those were murdered; 17,424 (57%) were suicides; 866 (3%) were accidents; and in 316 (1%) the intent was unknown.” http://www.bradycampaign.org/facts/factsheets/?page=firefacts
“In 1998, 30,708 people in the United States died from firearm-related deaths – 12,102 (39%) of those were murdered; 17,424 (57%) were suicides; 866 (3%) were accidents; and in 316 (1%) the intent was unknown […] In comparison, 33,651 Americans were killed in the Korean War and 58,193 Americans were killed in the Vietnam War.”
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated 52,447 deliberate and 23,237 accidental non-fatal gunshot injuries in the United States during 2000. The majority of gun-related deaths in the United States are suicides, with firearms used in 16,907 suicides in the United States during 2004.”
“Some research shows an association between household firearm ownership and gun suicide rates, while other research indicates no such association between firearm ownership and gun suicide rates. During the 1980s and early 1990s, there was a strong upward trend in adolescent suicides with a gun, as well as a sharp overall increase in a suicides among those age 75 and over. In the United States, firearms remain the most common method of suicide, accounting for 50.7% of all suicides committed during 2006.”
*( it is my opinion that using just percentages tend to confuse than clarify to siginificance to the the problem.)

” What’s with the “30,000 Gun Deaths” per year number?
Since the recent Virginia Tech shootings, I’ve seen or read of 30,000 firearms related deaths per year in the U.S., trotted out by the anti-gun, pro gun-control talking heads.
Where do they come up with this number?
I did a quick google search and can’t seem to match that number:
These list accidental firearms deaths,
Accidental, suicide, and homicide deaths by firearm
Total accidental deaths per year (all causes), U.S….96,000
Motor vehicle accidental deaths per year…43,000
Fatal firearms accidents per year…1,100
(The firearms accidents figure is an all-time low, even though the U.S. population is at an all-time high, and gun ownership is at an all-time high.)
Fatal firearms accidents age 0-5…17
Fatal firearms accidents age 5-14…121
Fatal firearms accidents age 15-24…401
Fraction of all Emergency Room visits that involve firearms accidents…0.2%
[Centers for Disease Control, all figures]
Accidents of all kinds (not just firearms) constitute the fifth leading cause of death in the United States, but the other four leading causes combined account for 16 times as many deaths as accidents. Accidents constitute a relatively small but easily prevented cause of death.
Suicides by firearm, per year…18.000
Murders by firearm, per year…14,000
[Centers for Disease Control, both figures]
Alcohol Deaths http://www.come-over.to/FAS/alcdeath.htm
How can alcohol be blamed for 100,000 deaths each year?
# 5% of all deaths from diseases of the circulatory system are attributed to alcohol.
# 15% of all deaths from diseases of the respiratory system are attributed to alcohol.
# 30% of all deaths from accidents caused by fire and flames are attributed to alcohol.
# 30% of all accidental drownings are attributed to alcohol.
# 30% of all suicides are attributed to alcohol.
# 40% of all deaths due to accidental falls are attributed to alcohol.
# 45% of all deaths in automobile accidents are attributed to alcohol.
# 60% of all homicides are attributed to alcohol.
Alcohol abuse kills some 75,000 Americans each year and shortens the lives of these people by an average of 30 years, a U.S. government study suggested Thursday.
Deaths from Smoking: 440,000 annual deaths each year are smoking-associated (CDC)

Medical system is leading cause of death and injury in US- http://www.newmediaexplorer.org/sepp/2003/10/29/medical_system_is_leading_cause_of_death_and_injury_in_us.htm
– “A definitive review and close reading of medical peer-review journals, and government health statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good. The number of people having in-hospital, adverse drug reactions (ADR) to prescribed medicine is 2.2 million. Dr. Richard Besser, of the CDC, in 1995, said the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections was 20 million. Dr. Besser, in 2003, now refers to tens of millions of unnecessary antibiotics. The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million. The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million. The total number of iatrogenic deaths shown in the following table is 783,936. It is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. The 2001 heart disease annual death rate is 699,697; the annual cancer death rate, 553,251.”
“Medical Errors – A Leading Cause of Death” http://www.cancure.org/medical_errors.htmThe JOURNAL of the AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (JAMA) Vol 284, No 4, July 26th 2000 article written by Dr Barbara Starfield, MD, MPH, of the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health, shows that medical errors may be the third leading cause of death in the United States. The report apparently shows there are 2,000 deaths/year from unnecessary surgery; 7000 deaths/year from medication errors in hospitals; 20,000 deaths/year from other errors in hospitals; 80,000 deaths/year from infections in hospitals; 106,000 deaths/year from non-error, adverse effects of medications – these total up to 225,000 deaths per year in the US from iatrogenic causes which ranks these deaths as the # 3 killer. Iatrogenic is a term used when a patient dies as a direct result of treatments by a physician, whether it is from misdiagnosis of the ailment or from adverse drug reactions used to treat the illness. (drug reactions are the most common cause).
http://www.greatestherbsonearth.com/articles/jama_doctors.htm 7,000 — medication errors in hospitals.
20,000 — other errors in hospitals.
80,000 — infections in hospitals.
106,000 — non-error, negative effects of drugs.
These total to 250,000 deaths per year from iatrogenic causes!!
http://www.naturodoc.com/library/public_health/doctors_cause_death.htm The U.S. health care system may contribute to poor health or death. According to Dr. Barbara Starfield of the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health, 250,000 deaths per year are caused by medical errors, making this the third-largest cause of death in the U.S., following heart disease and cancer.
The First Iatrogenic Study – http://www.whale.to/a/null9.html#THE_FIRST_IATROGENIC_STUDY “Dr. Lucian L. Leape opened medicine’s Pandora’s box in his 1994 paper, Error in Medicine, which appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).(16) He found that Schimmel reported in 1964 that 20% of hospital patients suffered iatrogenic injury, with a 20% fatality rate. In 1981 Steel reported that 36% of hospitalized patients experienced iatrogenesis with a 25% fatality rate, and adverse drug reactions were involved in 50% of the injuries. In 1991, Bedell reported that 64% of acute heart attacks in one hospital were preventable and were mostly due to adverse drug reactions. ” “Why Leape chose to use the much lower figure of 4% injury for his analysis remains in question. Using instead the average of the rates found in the three studies he cites (36%, 20%, and 4%) would have produced a 20% medical error rate. The number of iatrogenic deaths using an average rate of injury and his 14% fatality rate would be 1,189,576. ”
WAREHOUSING OUR ELDERS – http://www.whale.to/a/null9.html#WAREHOUSING_OUR_ELDERS_One “way to measure the moral and ethical fiber of a society is by how it treats its weakest and most vulnerable members. In some cultures, elderly people lives out their lives in extended family settings that enable them to continue participating in family and community affairs. American nursing homes, where millions of our elders go to live out their final days, represent the pinnacle of social isolation and medical abuse.”
http://www.whale.to/a/null9.html#Table_1:_Estimated_Annual_Mortality_and_Economic_Cost_of_Medical_Intervention The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million.3 The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million.4 The total number of iatrogenic deaths shown in the following table is 783,936. It is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. The 2001 heart disease annual death rate is 699,697; the annual cancer death rate, 553,251.5

Excellent article by sheriff. Judges and Lawyers stealing homes! – http://www.ricoforsheriff.com/further-reading/judges-and-lawyers-stealing-homes “Now, let’s come forward to our so-called Modern Times. Is this protection being afforded to our Citizens who find themselves in a Mortgage Foreclosure Lawsuit? Right now in our current judicial system, Mortgage Foreclosure Lawsuits are being tried solely by Judges. Currently it is impossible to receive a Trial by Jury in a matter dealing with Mortgage Foreclosure Lawsuits.”
“So again, a fundamental question is this? When a judge, and a lawyer representing a bank or mortgage company, conspire and succeed in stealing a home from a family without a trial by jury on the property matter, have they engaged in theft? Have they acted within the moral and ethical constraints of their Oath of Office?”
Attorney’s Oath of Office- “I do solemnly swear that I will support, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States; that I will do no falsehood, or consent that any be done in court and if I know of any I will give knowledge thereof of the judges of the court, or some one of them, that it may be reformed; I will not wittingly, willingly or knowingly promote, sue, or procure to be sued, any false or unlawful suit, or give aid or consent to the same; I will delay no person for lucre or malice, but will act in the office of attorney according to my best learning and discretion, with all good fidelity as well to the court as to my client, so help me God.”

Underreporting of Iatrogenic Events – http://www.whale.to/a/null9.html#ABSTRACT
“As few as 5% and no more than 20% of iatrogenic acts are ever reported.(16,24,25,33,34) This implies that if medical errors were completely and accurately reported, we would have an annual iatrogenic death toll much higher than 783,936. In 1994, Leape said his figure of 180,000 medical mistakes resulting in death annually was equivalent to three jumbo-jet crashes every two days.(16) Our considerably higher figure is equivalent to six jumbo jets are falling out of the sky each day. “
