Could Your Doctor End Up KILLING You?
We count on our doctors to look out for our best interests… and most of them do.
But something is killing almost half a million Americans every single year.
It’s not guns…or cars…or some new type of street drug.
It’s our doctors.
It’s hard to believe, but it’s true. U.S. doctors are killing close to 500,000 people every year.
Here’s why it’s happening… and how to keep yourself and the people you love safe.
A new study from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine found that reported medical errors accounted for at least 440,000 deaths last year.
And that’s probably on the low side, because many mistakes go unreported.
This means medical errors are the third leading cause of death in America – right behind heart disease and cancer.
So, it begs the question: why is this happening?
Most researchers point to overworked doctors, inadequately trained staff, system defects, and just plain mistakes (doctors are human, too).
I don’t think doctors need to be super-human. But the reason why flying in an airplane is so safe is that decisions are reduced to checklists and there are two people making decisions. Doctors are often alone in their decision-making.
The process by which medical decisions are made is broken.
So, how do you survive the medical system?
First, I think it’s good to question everything.
Always ask why your doctor recommends a certain treatment, and get second opinions.
Second, be wary of starting any drug. A wrongly prescribed drug (or a bad drug interaction) can kill you fast.
Know that there are good alternatives to almost every drug out there — especially for conditions that are long-term and chronic.
If your doctor isn’t open to discussing these alternatives, find one who will.

Your mainstream doc talks a lot about how important your heart is. And he probably suggests expensive scans, blood work and other tests to make sure your heart is healthy.
