Up to 40% of Medical Treatments Offer No Benefits
And “Physician-Caused Diseases” Lead to More than 230,000 U.S. Deaths Annually… While Safe, Natural Alternatives Get Buried
We go to doctors to improve our health and get help for acute medical problems. But the sad truth is that a large percentage of current medical practices offer no benefits and may even be deadly. A recent report from the Institutes of Medicine shows that iatrogenic diseases—”physician-caused diseases”—cause between 230,00 and 284,000 deaths annually in the United States.
iatrogenic diseases or illnesses arise for a number of reasons, such as…
Uncalculated outcomes of practitioner’s choices
Intentional wrongdoing by physicians
|Physician-caused diseases are the third leading cause of death, close behind heart disease and cancer.|
This is even more unacceptable in light of the many safe, effective, and scientifically validated natural treatments that already exist for today’s most common health problems, including cancer. As editor of the Underground Health Reporter e-alert, I have the good fortune of seeing the best of the best in natural cancer cures come across my desk on a daily basis, and I consider it my responsibility to share those natural alternatives with you here. But first we must examine the shocking dangers of conventional treatments.
“Hidden Medical Errors” Are #1 Problem
Lucian Leape, an adjunct professor of health policy at the Harvard School of Public Health, conducted the most thorough examination of medical errors in the United States to date. “It’s by far the number one problem,” said Leape.
Leape and other experts say that typically more than 90% of medical errors are hidden not only from the public, but from hospital authorities as well. They estimate that documented mistakes account for about 5 to 10% of the total number of mistakes made at a typical hospital. The rest are covered up.
Findings indicate the effects of physician errors include:
|• 116 million additional doctor’s visits
• 77 million extra prescriptions
• 17 million emergency room visits
• 8 million hospitalizations
|• 3 million long-term admissions
• $77 billion in extra costs
• 199,000 preventable deaths
“The bottom line is,” said Robert Brook, professor of medicine at UCLA, “we have a system that is terribly out of control.” Conventional medicine must be reinvented. In the meantime, individuals who care about their health should look elsewhere for answers.
According to Dr. Vinay Prasad, MD, of the Medical Oncology Branch at the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD, 40% of current medical practices offer no benefits. Dr. Prasad and his team evaluated 1,344 original articles published in the New England Journal of Medicine between 2001 and 2010 and identified 146 medical reversals. Medical reversals refer to medical practices that offer no benefits and have never worked. Says Dr. Prasad: “They were instituted in error, never helped patients, and have eroded trust in medicine.”
False Cancer Diagnoses and Unnecessary Chemotherapy
Most of the time, the mistakes doctors make—even if they cover them up—are truly accidents. But not always. Can you imagine a cancer doctor falsely diagnosing cancer in healthy patients, and administering dangerous and toxic chemotherapy drugs unnecessarily? Apparently, that’s exactly what has been happening at one popular Michigan clinic.
The website for Dr. Farid Fata’s Michigan Hematology Oncology practice promised the “Best Cancer Care—Anywhere,” but federal criminal investigators looking strongly disagree. U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade is charging the popular physician, who at one time had more than a thousand patients under his care, with healthcare fraud.
Prosecutors say Fata, a trusted oncologist, “preyed on patients to pad his pockets. His alleged wrongdoings include:
Administering expensive and uncalled-for testing and treatments
Giving patients “unnecessary chemotherapy,” even for “end-of-life patients who will not benefit”
“Deliberate misdiagnosis,” including falsely diagnosing patients with cancer
Court records clearly show current and former employees, concerned by the magnitude of Dr. Fata’s malpractice, turned into FBI informants. According to one such informant, working for Fata came with the heavy burden of “living with this hell.”
Dr. Fata’s patients are shocked and afraid. After hearing about the charges Fata faced, Jeff Berz reached out to federal prosecutors. He fears his father Milton, who saw Fata for treatment for his leukemia, suffered through unnecessary chemotherapy. As Milton’s health declined, Fata continued to push chemotherapy, and took extreme measures to distribute it.
In the wake of these shocking revelations of wrongdoing, experts are making the expected recommendations, for instance: always be alert at the doctor’s… request and read copies of your medical records… and get a second opinion, especially for serious diagnoses.
But why should patients have to jump through hoops to receive proper care? History proves even well-liked and trusted professionals (like Fata) succumb to the tempting lure of a big payoff for falsifying information and administering unnecessary treatments.
In contrast, natural cures too often go ignored, even when they are proven effective. Why? Because natural cures offer no financial incentive to profit-driven drug makers and medical practitioners.
What if You Have Undiagnosed Cancer Right Now?
The biggest health fear most of us face is cancer. The latest research from the American Cancer Society says that at least 2 out of every 5 people will develop cancer. With odds like that, it’s not overstating the point to say you might have undiagnosed cancer right now. The years I’ve spent as editing the Underground Health Reporter eAlert have given me the unique opportunity to learn about dozens of stunningly effective, all natural and totally affordable cancer cures. Cures that you’ll never hear about from conventional doctors or mainstream scientists because they offer no profit potential to Big Pharma and the Cancer Machine.
If you or someone close to you are already suffering from cancer—or if you simply want to ensure that should cancer strike, you are well prepared—you need the complete, accurate information that has helped thousands of cancer patients reclaim their health and their lives.
