The Devestating Truth About the Obama Health Plan

Written By: Jon Rappoport  |  Posted: Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

As I wrote in a recent article, on July 26, 2000, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a landmark paper by Barbara Starfield (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health), "Is US health really the best in the world?" In it, Starfield revealed what many people inside the medical establishment already knew: every year, like clockwork, the medical system was killing huge numbers of people.
Each year in the US, as Dr. Starfield reported, there are:
12, 000 deaths from unnecessary surgeries;
7, 000 deaths from medication errors in hospitals;
20, 000 deaths from other errors in hospitals;
80, 000 deaths from infections acquired in hospitals;
106, 000 deaths from FDA-approved correctly prescribed medicines.

The total of medically-caused deaths in the US every year is 225, 000. This makes the medical system the third leading cause of death in America, behind heart disease and cancer. In the wake of Starfield's devastating report, other facts came to light: 2.1 million people in America, every year, are hospitalized as a result of reactions to FDA-approved medicines. Annually, 36 million serious adverse reactions to those drugs occur. So, inclusive health coverage for many more Americans under the Obama Plan means these horrendous figures will rise. This is the dirty secret.
