Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I find it interesting that there is so much discussion about these "hard drugs". However, there are other drug problems, which are being rarely discussed.

Death By Medicine - Part I, by Gary Null, PhD ~ Carolyn Dean, MD, ND ~ Martin Feldman, MD ~ Debora Rasio, MD ~ Dorothy Smith, PhD

ABSTRACT

A definitive review and close reading of medical peer-review journals, and government health statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good.

  • The number of people having in-hospital, adverse drug reactions (ADR) to prescribed medicine is 2.2 million.1

  • Dr. Richard Besser, of the CDC, in 1995, said the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections was 20 million. Dr. Besser, in 2003, now refers to tens of millions of unnecessary antibiotics.2, 2a

This seems to be a limited review, as psychopharmaca are not included and my guess that would be a huge number too.
