How many drug scripts do doctors write per year?

Medical News Today reports that, in 2011, there was a modest uptick in the number of prescriptions written in the US.

The increase brought the total to: 4.02 billion.

Yes, in 2011, doctors wrote 4.02 billion prescriptions for drugs in America.

That’s an average of roughly 13 prescriptions for each man, woman, and child.

That’s about one new prescription every month for every American. (Update: the Kaiser Family Foundation reports that in 2016, 4,065,479,343 drug prescriptions were written by US doctors—an increase of 65 million.)

The Medical News Today article concluded, “…the industry should be heartened by the growth of the number of prescriptions and spending.” Yes, I’m sure the drug industry is popping champagne corks.

We’re talking about prescriptions here. We’re not talking about the number of pills Americans took. We’re also not counting over-the-counter drugs or vaccine shots.

Pharmacopoeia, a 2011 exhibition at the British Museum, estimated that “the average number of pills a person takes in his or her own lifetime in the UK is 14,000.” That’s as a result of prescriptions. Including over-the-counter drugs, the 14,000 number would swell to 40,000 pills taken in a lifetime.

What are the effects of all these drugs?

We are looking at a supreme Trojan Horse that is rotting out America and all other countries from the inside. Wars, no wars, economic deprivation, economic prosperity, the drugs continue to do their work, debilitating and ruining and terminating lives.

Many sources can be cited to confirm this assessment.

On January 8th, 2001, the LA Times published an article by one of the best medical reporters in the business, Linda Marsa: “When Good Drugs Do Harm.” Marsa quoted researcher Dr. David Bates, who indicated that, in the US, there are 36 million serious adverse reactions to medical drugs per year.

On July 26, 2000, the Journal of the American Medical Association published the most stunning mainstream estimate of medical-drug damage in history: “Is US health really the best in the world?” The author was Dr. Barbara Starfield, a respected public-health researcher at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.

Starfield concluded that medical drugs were killing Americans at the rate of 106,000 per year.

That’s a million deaths per decade.

This is a conservative sketch of the Trojan Horse that has been placed in the center of every country in the world.

The pharmaceutical juggernaut will continue, no doubt about it. The only question is, how many people will wake up and seek another way?

The destruction of societies by medical drugs goes far beyond what some people call “over-prescribing.” This isn’t just a tilt in the wrong direction. It isn’t simply errors of judgment compounded by the number of doctors dispensing medicines.

Those are all polite terms suggesting the situation can be corrected through a show of good will and better judgment. That will never happen.

Countries of the world are literally being assaulted by pharmaceutical companies and their foot-soldier doctors. It’s chemical warfare.

To even begin to see light at the end of the tunnel, hundreds of millions of people must add themselves to the rolls of those who already are pursuing better health through natural means.

Not even the Nazis and their dearly beloved cartel, the monster IG Farben, dreamed of the day when the citizenry would line up and demand to ingest more and more life-destroying chemicals.

In case anyone thinks the FDA, the single US agency responsible for certifying drugs as safe and effective, has “overlooked the problem,” Google “FDA, Why Learn About Adverse Drug Events.” You’ll find the following statements on the FDA’s own site:

“Over 2 MILLION serious ADRs [Adverse Drug Events] yearly; 100,000 DEATHS yearly.”

The only thing missing is: “And we, the FDA, said the drugs were safe.”

Well, at one time, you could have found that statement on the FDA website.

  1. I – as a Heart Pacemaker Recipient – am prescribed
    1. Ace-Inhibitor drug
    2. Beta- Blocker drug
    3. A Statine drug
    4. Asprin
    5. A Diuretic drug.
    Meds – 5 pills which I am to take every day – until the day I die – that is 6 prescriptions per month for ever.
    The electrolytes I should also be taking to replenish the Potassium & Magnesium that the Diuretic drug strips from my body were omitted – the only real & necessary compounds that I should be prescribed – are not prescribed – & yes they are absolutely necessary & yes they available on prescription & yes they were administered to me by the nurses in hospital – but when they eject you from their abode – the hospital – the attitude is – good luck sucker.

    Interesting article – I am listening to on Aletho News.
    corbettreport – September 12. 2017 – Ghostwriter On The Storm: How BigPharma (and every one else) Ghost writes Articles.

    1. Hi Jagg: – who you talking about ?
      St Vinnies Heart Care Center Melb. ?
      Hey – I have a heart pacemaker in my body – me A.I. Android – I died in their hospital bed 7:30AM 27th July – they saved me – & they now own my sorry backside weather I like it or not – but not my mind dearest Jagg – not my mind.
      As for the interaction – it is minimal – because they could care less. – they keep us at arms length like something that stinks.
      Thank you for the sympathy though – it’s definitely nice to have someone offer you a cup – one gets over self pity rather quickly you see.

      Jagg: – do you like feel good SciFi monster movies ?
      I happened on a website last night – that’s how it begins – right.
      The Shape Of Water – the website tor.com – it is a great website it features books & movies of the weird or what persuasion.
      Have a happy day Jagg: – it is still raining out side my window – remember when Australian Prof. Tim Flannery said it would never rain again in Australia – that we were screwed forever – the Gillard gov.au paid him a few $XX.000.000 to tell us that one.

  2. Would I be out-of-line to ask you of your NDE? Near-death-experience as this site and Wayne from \”tricked by the light\” have intrigued me no end. Did you see the face of God and love?

    1. I have been ill for some time – no energy – breathless – arthritis / knees & hips are almost gone & much more.
      Tue 26th July – a sunny morning – a very fine day indeed.
      I was not going anywhere
      As I sat at the computer I began that I had enthusiasm enough – to go out – to go get my hair cut – I washed my hair & off I went.
      It was glorious out – all bright & positive.
      I parked the car – took my shopping bags & walker – in the mall was the hairdresser – my hair was cut – hooray – out the mall & across Sydney Rd to buy bits & pieces – burner candles etc – then Chemist warehouse on the other side – chat with Chemist John – to Asian bits & pieces shop a few door down.
      I went around the shop & got everything – I don’t dawdle in shops – but – happily I decided to walk around the shop again just to make sure I had everything – I told myself – I don;r do this – I went around twice – I paid at the register – as I walked out the entrance I got dizzy – “if I breathe slowly & stay calm I can make it to the car” I thought “no I better go back into the shop & ask for help” I woke up with two business women on either side of me – one asked “can I call someone for you” I gave her my sisters number & she rang “you’ve bee unconscious for a minute they said.
      The ambulance came & took me to St Vinnies Hospital.

      The Funny Things –
      Later I felt that I had been dawdling – waiting for everyone to turn up for the event.
      That the two business women were there – to make sure it all went according to plan – they were VIP’s especially sent.
      The phone is ringing I’ll be back.

  3. I didn’t know that you dream when you are unconscious.
    Or that when your heart stops your bladder empties.
    The the pathology about the dead body – how the murder victim on TV falls on their face – you are thrown backwards with force.
    I sure hope the real cops are not practicing the rubbish told by murder mystery pathologists.
    The second time I was KO’d for 25 min as they worked on me – the zapped me once – which is a big deal procedure in hospital – I remember a state of nothing & then as I returned – I was dreaming & then I woke up surrounded by relieved hospital personal.
    The door was closed to me – i waited in nothingness – only conscious of the nothing.
