This first one is about how 2 of the top medical doctors in Canada died from
Cancer. One doctor was 68 and the other medical doctor was only 51 years old.

Medical errors killing up to 24,000 Canadians a year
Nearly a quarter of Canadian adults say they or a family member have experienced a
preventable medical error, according to a report released Wednesday. Drug errors and
infections top the list.
The Canadian Institute for Health Information's fifth annual report (Health Care in Canada
2004) used the institute's studies and Statistics Canada data to examine patient safety. For
the first time, it compares how common some errors are.
In May, a comprehensive study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal found
preventable medical errors contribute to between 9,000 and 24,000 deaths in Canada a year.
Extrapolating the figures, CIHI said patients spend more than one million extra days in
hospital being treated for injuries or complications of their care.
The high number of errors surprised Michael Decter, head of the Health Council of Canada.
"We knew we had a problem, we didn't know how big it was. Now that we know ... we've
got a lot of work to do."
One in nine adults with health problems reported receiving the wrong medication or dose.
The same number contracted an infection such as pneumonia while in hospital, the report
People are getting sicker rather than better in our hospitals. One of the reasons is the lack of proper cleaning.
This problem is apparent all across Canada.
I know of a lady in her early 50's who went into a hospital in the Toronto area for a simple knee operation. She
caught a C-Difficile infection in the hospital after the operation and died.
The marketplace report clearly showed that the cleaning budgets at hospitals have been slashed and the
hospitals no longer have the needed numbers of cleaners in order to ensure the hospitals are kept clean and safe.
Do you feel safe when entering your hospital?

Canada has the highest rate of hospital acquired infections in the developed world, and
Canada's consumer watchdog wants to know why. Erica Johnson puts hospital cleanliness to
the test, and finds a mess that is making you sick. With hidden cameras, including Canada's
first hidden camera glo gel test, insider interviews and expert opinions, Marketplace uncovers
why people in Canadian hospitals are too often getting sicker instead of better.Note:
Marketplace went inside eleven hospitals in Ontario and British Columbia. We decided to
only name the Niagara region hospitals because that is where there was a major C. difficile
outbreak last year, that is where Gary Ball died, and those are the hospitals Dr. Kevin Smith
supervises. We didn't name the other hospitals, because it would be unfair as we didn't ask
hospital representatives to speak to us on camera. They were illustrative of dirty hospitals
across the country. As Dr. Michael Gardam says in our story, "I would suggest you could
probably find examples of this in pretty much every hospital in the country." - See more at:
How safe are the drugs that your doctor is prescribing to you?????????
I personally had a severe adverse reaction to the drug Naproxin that my doctor prescribed to
me. It was so bad, I actually thought it was going to kill me. It took me 6 full months of
agony to recover from the damage this drug did to me.
An adverse reaction to a pharmaceutical drug happens to over 2 million people every year in
the US. Out of this 2 million, over 1.5 million cases are severe enough that the patient
needed to be admitted to a hospital. Each year over 100,000 Americans lose their lives
because of a bad reaction to a drug they took.
STOP AND THINK ABOUT THAT FOR A MOMENT. Over 270 people in the US alone
are being killed every single day because they followed the advice of their doctors and took a
drug their doctors told them to take.
How do you know that the next drug your doctor tells you to take is not going to be harmful
to you, perhaps even kill you???????

Adverse Drug Reactions
How Serious Is the Problem and How Often and Why Does It Occur?
Although some adverse drug reactions (ADR) are not very serious, others cause the death,
hospitalization, or serious injury of more than 2 million people in the United States each
year, including more than 100,000 fatalities. In fact, adverse drug reactions are one of the
leading causes of death in the United States.1 Most of the time, these dangerous events
could and should have been avoided. Even the less drastic reactions, such as change in
mood, loss of appetite, and nausea, may seriously diminish the quality of life.
Adverse Reactions to Drugs Cause Hospitalization of 1.5 Million Americans Each Year
An analysis of numerous studies in which the cause of hospitalization was determined found
that approximately 1.5 million hospitalizations a year were caused by adverse drug reactions.
1 This means that every day more than 4,000 patients have adverse drug reactions so serious
that they need to be admitted to American hospitals.
Adverse Reactions Occur During Hospitalization to 770,000 People a Year
In addition to the 1.5 million people a year who are admitted to the hospital because of
adverse drug reactions, an additional three-quarters of a million people a year develop an
adverse reaction after they are hospitalized. According to national projections based on a
study involving adverse drug reactions developing in patients in the hospital, 770,000
additional patients a year—more than 2,000 patients a day—suffer an adverse event caused
by drugs once they are admitted. Many of the reactions in the patients studied were serious,
even life-threatening, and included cardiac arrhythmias, kidney failure, bleeding, and
dangerously low blood pressure. People with these adverse reactions had an almost twofold
higher risk of death compared to other otherwise comparable hospitalized patients who did
not have a drug reaction.
Can you trust the medical experts to report accurate results to the tests you have taken???
Check out this article from the Globe & Mail.
Ontario is considering developing a robust quality assurance system to help prevent more
patients from suffering the consequences of a medical misdiagnosis because of misread scans.
Health Minister Deb Matthews’s announcement comes days after Trillium Health Partners,
which operates three Toronto-area hospitals, disclosed that it has launched a massive review
of thousands of scans because of mistakes found in the work of one radiologist, Ivo Slezic.
Although other people have come forward since news of the misread scans, Trillium has
only confirmed that one patient has been negatively affected because of the errors. The
hospital won’t disclose details about the patient, citing privacy issues. But Houda Rafle, a 28-
year-old Toronto resident, told several media outlets Trillium missed a cancerous tumour on
a CT scan in March. Five months later, she saw another doctor and learned she had cancer
when the original scan was done. By the time it was detected, it had spread to her lungs, and
is now in stage four.
Here is another scary statistic. DOCTORS are the 3rd leading CAUSE OF DEATH.
Take a look at this article
Doctors Are The Third Leading Cause of Death in the US, Killing
225,000 People Every Year
ALL THESE ARE DEATHS PER YEAR:
•12,000 -- unnecessary surgery
•7,000 -- medication errors in hospitals
•20,000 -- other errors in hospitals
•80,000 -- infections in hospitals
•106,000 -- non-error, negative effects of drugs
These total to 225,000 deaths per year from iatrogenic causes!!
What does the word iatrogenic mean? This term is defined as induced in a patient by a
physician's activity, manner, or therapy. Used especially of a complication of treatment.
225,000 deaths per year constitutes the third leading cause of death in the United States,
after deaths from heart disease and cancer.
I believe it is important to take control of your own health, to learn the truth about the risks associated with
todays medical treatments, and the benefits of treating yourself naturally.
