Why Medication Can Be Dangerous to Your Health

By Leo Galland, M.D.

'Did you know that the majority of FDA approved drugs have serious potential side effects that were not detected before marketing approval?

That about three quarters of a million people a year are rushed to emergency rooms in the U.S. because of adverse drug reactions, according to the CDC? (2)

That the number of medication-related deaths in the U.S. is estimated at over 200,000 a year, making medications the third or fourth leading cause of death in this country?

That even common pain relievers called NSAIDs, examples of which include Advil, Motrin, Aleve and aspirin, account for an estimated 7,600 deaths and 76,000 hospitalizations in the U. S. every year?

It sounds like the cure could be worse than the disease in far too many cases.'
