According to a Renowned Doctor, Prescription Drugs Are Killing Us

By November 12, 2017 Health & Wellness

While many modern doctors are not thought of in a positive light, there still are good ones out there that are fighting for what is right. Dr. Peter Gotzsche is one of those doctors.

Gotzsche, for those who do not know, is the co-founder of the Cochrane Collaboration and he hopes to inform the world about the dangers associated with quite a few pharmaceutical grade drugs. According to his research, there are an estimated 100,000 people dying in the United States each year from the side-effects of correctly used prescription drugs. He actually had a paper published in the Lancet just this past year going over how our antidepressants are causing much more harm than good.

Gotzsche is more focused on two main areas, those being antidepressants and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory painkillers (like ibuprofen or Tylenol). According to him, these deaths are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the issue of our failing process of drug regulation. In his paper, he notes that the antidepressants we are being prescribed now are just as addictive as the ones they were put in place to replace.

According to Gotzsche, these are things we should be avoiding:

  • Antidepressants for all, as they very likely don’t even work for severe cases of depression

  • All brain-active drugs in children

  • Anti-psychotics and other brain-active drugs for the elderly.

  • Psychotropic drugs should be used as little as possible and mostly in very acute situations, as they are very harmful when used long-term Anti-dementia drugs, as they very likely don’t work

  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used for arthritis, muscle pain, and headaches, including over-the-counter, low-dose ibuprofen. These drugs should be used as little as possible.

  • Mammography screening, as it doesn’t prolong life whereas it makes many healthy women ill through overdiagnosis and leads to the premature death for some because radiotherapy and chemotherapy increase mortality when used for harmless cancers detected at screening

  • Drugs for urinary incontinence, as they very likely don’t work

Gotzsche has spoken out time and time again against Big Pharma and will continue to do so for as long as he can. Check out a video of him speaking below. What do you think about all of this?
