DEATH BY MODERN MEDICINE by Carolyn Dean
Death by Modern Medicine identifies the tragic aspects of a medical system, that, in its short history of about eighty years, has managed to kill tens of millions of victims. Dr. Dean's widely circulated paper, "Death by Medicine", written for Dr. Gary Null in November 2003, was the first to identify the extent of these casualties. Dr. Dean verified that from 1990-2000 about 7.8 million victims suffered Death by Medicine.
Many people were shocked at this figure, but since then people's eyes have been opened to the full horror of modern medicine. There have been 140,000 fatal or near fatal reactions to Vioxx; one third of the millions of women who took fen-phen, the weight loss drug, suffered heart and lung damage; heart disease is caused by Celebrex and all the other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs; Prozac is causing suicides and homicides as well as heart disease; and the list goes on.
Death by Modern Medicine goes beyond the statistics of deaths due to drugs to how the medical monopoly that created the system in the first place is allowed to control health care. A tale of propaganda, health care bureaucracy, the business of cancer, our own personal addictions to sugar and drugs, and the denial we all harbor to help us cope with the overwhelming burden, are woven into this 360-page volume.
