MEDICINES use and ABUSE

Friends, The study below done a few years ago should scare the socks off us all. We can do much better in this country.

We all know that drugs has done much to save lives in this country, but I would bet that only ONE out of TEN knows the other side of the story concerning AMA aproved drugs USE and Abuse. Well I'll tell you in a minute.

A while back I was talking to an elderly lady explaining about the efficacy of LIMU MOUI liquid. About all the studies (over 500) The clinical trials, and the numerous testimonials that I collect from people that suffer from various Illnesses. Pains, chronic diseases, stroke, allergies, cancer, depression etc.

I told her about the study that I have shared with you all, how Fucoidan the main ingredient LIMU MOUI , causes cancer cells to self distruct within 72 hours in vitro.

I told her how AMA has decided that Americans need to supplement their diet. How limu moui has been called the perfect food by no less than the president of the American Nutraceutical Association Dr. Derrick DeSilva (Of Ask the Doctor fame). Considered one of America's best doctors. It has everything the body needs plus thousands of vitamin like substances that scientists are just beginning to understand.

This elderly lady told me that she had never had to take anything in her life. I told her LIMU was a FOOD. All natural, No harful effects. We have people that take it with all kinds of meds. Didn't matter to her. Naturally , she was a mother of a friend and I care about her.

Now , she had been on 5 different kinds of medication for years. She didn't count DRUGS to be "BEING ON SOMETHING."

Reccently she has been in the hospital to remove a cyst the size of a grapefruit. I haven't spoken to her since then.

I tell you this story because we have a lot of people that feel the same way. Little do they know that the harmful effects of various aspects of drug use makes 911 seem like a small blip in our lives, when you know the truth.

The study below Noted by JAMA the journal of the American Medical Association. Shows exactly what I am saying.

300 Americans die each day from some effect from drug use. 6000 Americans, each day, suffer from very serious ADVERSE REACTIONS from drugs. Remember all these are FDA aproved drugs. From Aspirin that is estimated to kill 46 people a day to the more exotic drugs like Statins.

Is this an epidemic? What would happen if this was caused by supplements?

Anyway, below is the study summary. As always I let the ones doing the study speak for themselves. If you have trouble understanding it, SKIP to the CONCLUSION or ask your Doctor.

Incidence of adverse drug reactions in hospitalized patients: a meta- analysis of prospective studies.

Lazarou J, Pomeranz BH, Corey PN.

Department of Zoology, University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the incidence of serious and fatal adverse drug reactions (ADR) in hospital patients. DATA SOURCES: Four electronic databases were searched from 1966 to 1996. STUDY SELECTION: Of 153, we selected 39 prospective studies from US hospitals. DATA EXTRACTION: Data extracted independently by 2 investigators were analyzed by a random-effects model. To obtain the overall incidence of ADRs in hospitalized patients, we combined the incidence of ADRs occurring while in the hospital plus the incidence of ADRs causing admission to hospital. We excluded errors in drug administration, noncompliance, overdose, drug abuse, therapeutic failures, and possible ADRs. Serious ADRs were defined as those that required hospitalization, were permanently disabling, or resulted in death. DATA SYNTHESIS: The overall incidence of serious ADRs was 6.7% (95% confidence interval [CI], 5.2%-8.2%) and of fatal ADRs was 0.32% (95% CI, 0.23%-0.41%) of hospitalized patients. We estimated that in 1994 overall 2216000 (1721000-2711000) hospitalized patients had serious ADRs and 106000 (76000-137000) had fatal ADRs, making these reactions between the fourth and sixth leading cause of death. CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of serious and fatal ADRs in US hospitals was found to be extremely high. While our results must be viewed with circumspection because of heterogeneity among studies and small biases in the samples, these data nevertheless suggest that ADRs represent an important clinical issue.
