Dr. Richard Ruhling, a NeedToKnow.News reader, contributed the following comment in response to our post last week that the 2017-2018 flu killed 80,000 but there was no hysteria or panic. He wrote, “The same might be said for the 106,000 killed by Adverse Drug Reactions in hospitals reported in Journal of AMA, 4-15-1998, and 199,000 killed by Adverse Drug Reactions as outpatients seen in the Western Journal of Med, 6/2000.” He said there was a 2.7-fold increase in those deaths in the Archives of Internal Medicine reported for 1998-2005 in the Sept 10, 2007 issue. This increase in adverse drug reactions made medical care the leading cause of death, more than heart disease or cancer, but not even mentioned in the CDC list of top 10. -GEG
