A reason overall death totals may be low
The reputable “People’s Pharmacy” published a book a decade or so ago:
Long story short, medical mistakes/drug mistakes by doctors may be one of the top 2 or 3 leading causes of deaths in the US.
Long story slightly explained: More people staying home, not going to doctors, not taking prescribed drugs means lots of those people don’t die. Yes they don’t die because they didn’t go to the doctor!
In listening to the People’s Pharmacy Saturday morning NPR radio program for several decades I have heard the number of people dying from doctor’s mistakes compared to a 747 crashing and killing everyone aboard every day.
So…Chris’ little red line of above normal deaths may be lower because of that.
In any given year 250k to 500k die in hospitals due to medical mistakes mostly due to medication mistakes. Accurate numbers are hard to come by since hospitals do not like reporting those kinds of stats.
As a sick and disabled person, i can attest to the fact drs and medical community do far more harm. My father preached all his life that if you want to stay healthy “dont go to drs”. I am sure this is the fact. Look at the infant mortality rate , its fallen drastically since the epidemic. why?? less vaccine? less wellness visits? I am sure people have finally realized modern western medicine is not the answer. This may be the wake up call people need to stop going for chronic illness. Hit by a bus.. sure go.. anything else.. better off not going.
^ Yep, they’re good for emergency medicine (e.g. if you break a bone)… For everything else, incorporate into your life the planet’s most advanced health information from great researchers and websites such as Dr. Mercola, NaturalNews, keto Youtube channels, etc etc… so that you can become your own doctor. I’m only 34 and I haven’t been to a doctor in like 15 years.
