Medical mistakes are the leading cause of accidental death in the USA. But there are NO MANDATORY statistics required to be kept by our medical industry. But all the leading research indicates that 200,000 Americans are killed by mistakes at doctor’s offices and hospitals across the country, each year. 

Let’s do the math. We start with the commonly agreed upon research data of preventable medical injuries approaches 200,000 deaths per year in the United States. Next we take the CDC 2006 vehicle accident death toll of 43,600. And finally, divide 43,600 into 200,000. The final figure is 4.56. Round that figure up to 5.

To summarize, you are  5 times more likely to be accidently killed at your doctor’s office or the hospital than you are to die in traffic by a vehicle accident.

Chew on that.

This figure dove tails nicely into my main message. Take care of yourself as best you can by staying healthy and eating healthy. In doing so you will reduce your need of doctor visits and medical procedures.

Staying healthy and healing your current ailments can be as simple as avoiding certain foods. Even healthy foods. It was me and for many others whom I’ve met.

Get a food sensitivity test to find out which foods are working against you. One person’s food is another person’s poison.
