Deaths in Error/Conventional Medicine

Conventional Medicine issues:

Each year in the United States:

12,000 people die from unnecessary surgery;

7,000 people die from medication errors in hospitals;

20,000 people die from other hospital error;

80,000 die from infections contracted in hospitals;

106,000 deaths from properly prescribed pharmaceutical drugs.

In other words, an estimated 225,000 deaths are caused by U.S. health-care system annually.
