You Could Be 5 Minutes from Death (Here’s How to Prevent It)
Drug company execs must play a lot of Monopoly – because they have a stack of “Get Out of Jail Free” cards a mile high.
If you or I made a product that killed 100,000 people a year, they’d lock us away for life.
But Big Pharma keeps getting away with it.
A shocking study shows that drug mistakes have doubled since the year 2000.
Prescription drugs are now killing someone every 5 minutes… and Poison Control Centers get a call about them every 21 seconds.
But the good news is that you don’t need to be the next casualty.
Because there are six simple steps you can take RIGHT NOW to keep yourself… and all the people you love… safe.
If the federal government kept better records (and they don’t) prescription drugs would be the seventh-leading cause of death in America.
Like I said, someone dies every 5 minutes.
And yet it’s natural medicine that politicians are always attacking.
I guess we need better lobbyists…
But when you look at all the ways prescription drugs can kill you, it’s clear we’re all gambling the minute we fill that first prescription.
In the latest study, the most common drug errors were:
- Taking the wrong medication or giving the wrong dose
- Mistakenly taking the same medication twice
- Overdose – especially for opioids
- Children getting into medications
And don’t think it’s only prescription drugs causing problems, over-the-counter pain killers also cause a lot of problems (including death).
There is a lot of harm that can come from chemical medications, but there is plenty you can do to help protect yourself and your family (if you have to take these drugs):
- Be clear about what your doctor wants you to take and how much – check when you get the bottle.
- Make sure your drugs are compatible. Your best source for finding out which drugs don’t mix is your pharmacist (ask them!).
- Make sure you only take what you need every day, the best tool for this is a pill box with days of the week on it.
- Avoid alcohol: Painkillers, sedatives, and other medications become deadly poisons when mixed with alcohol.
- Be especially careful of blood sugar medications, heart medications, pain killers and sedatives – these cause the most problems.
- Be brave enough to ask about what you don’t know.
Most of all, you should remember that there are good natural alternatives to most chronic health problems.
Many chronic diseases are better served by changing your lifestyle and supporting those changes with natural products.
Drugs should be your last alternative (not your first choice).
