Do you know the risks and side effects of the drugs you are taking? All too frequently we hear from patients “I wish I would have known!” about the problems they or their loved ones had after taking prescription or over-the-counter drugs, especially with children.

Over a decade ago, Professor Bruce Pomerance of the University of Toronto concluded that properly prescribed and correctly taken pharmaceutical drugs were the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. More recently, an article authored in two parts by Gary Null, PhD, Carolyn Dean, MD, ND, Martin Feldman, MD, Debora Rasio, MD, and Dorothy Smith, PhD, describes in excruciating detail how the modern conventional American medical system has become the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. From medical errors to adverse drug reactions to unnecessary procedures-- the death toll rises.
