  8. I am in great need of statistics, with references/citations if possible, regarding iatrogenic harm from MDs/DOs, DCs, LAcs, etc.  As SOON as POSSIBLE please!  ANY and ALL types!

  19. Hello, David.
  20.  
  21. This Harvard article addresses your question:
  22. http://ethics.harvard.edu/blog/new-prescription-drugs-major-health-risk-few-offsetting-advantages
  23.  
  24. Every year, in the US alone, "properly" prescribed pharmaceuticals cause (and are reported to the FDA as causing):
  25.  
  26. 128,000 deaths  
  27. ISMP, “QuarterWatch,” T. J. Moore, M. R. Cohen, and C. D. Furberg, eds. (Horsham, PA: Institute for Safe Medication Practices, 2012).
  28. (That's more Americans than died in all of World War I (116,516) or all of the Vietnam War (90,220) http://www.pbs.org/newshour/updates/many-americans-died-u-s-wars)
  29.  
  30. And 1.9 million hospitalizations,
  31. Institutional Corruption of Pharmaceuticals and the Myth of Safe and Effective Drugs
  32. Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics, 2013, Vol. 14, No. 3: 590-610
  33. 11 Pages Posted: 20 Jun 2013 Last revised: 12 Sep 2014
  34.  
  35. And 2.7 million serious, disabling or fatal injuries
  36. https://www.ismp.org/quarterwatch/pdfs/2011Q4.pdf
  37. https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2282014
  38.  Lazarou, B. H. Pomeranz, and P. N. Corey, “Incidence of Adverse Drug Reactions in Hospitalized Patients,” Journal of American Medical Association 279, no. 15 (1998): 1200-1205.
  39.  
  40. Also, a CNDA paper of several years ago addresses such safety questions:
  41. http://www.calnd.org/files/Patient%20letter%20for%20Insurance%20Companies%20Attachments%281%29.pdf
  42.  
  43. And the number of serious adverse events increases over time:
  44. https://www.ismp.org/QuarterWatch/pdfs/2012Q1.pdf
  45.  
  46. Sometimes by almost 60% per year:
  47. https://www.ismp.org/quarterwatch/pdfs/2015Q3R1.pdf
  48.  
  49. This HHS report is also damning:
  50. https://oig.hhs.gov/oei/reports/oei-06-09-00090.pdf
  51.  
  52. And Mercola.com addresses these questions frequently, but doesn't bother to cite original sources:
  53. Death by Medicine by Gary Null, Carolyn Dean, et al. is a 2003 article looking at iatrogenic mortality statistics:
