    The Starfield Revelation, Revisited
    By Jon Rappoport, nomorefakenews.com

    OCTOBER 31, 2010. In the summer of the year 2000, it was a bolt out of the blue. The revelation. I come back to it for various reasons—this time because I’ve been reading doctors’ attacks on the nutritional industry: “fraudulent claims, quackery, unproven science, theft.”

    You’ve heard all the accusations.

    It’s interesting that these doctors don’t bother to examine their own profession. If they did, they would fall through the deep hole, and they might never find their way back to the top.

    On July 26, 2000, Dr. Barbara Starfield published her landmark study, “Is US Health Really the Best in the World?” in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). At the time, Starfield was working at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. She still is.

    She is, as you can see, an insider. You don’t have your papers published in JAMA if you’re not.

    Among her findings? The annual figure for deaths caused by medical drugs in the US is 106,000.

    THE ANNUAL FIGURE.

    All those drugs were, according to her report, correctly prescribed and, of course, approved by the FDA. No drug makes its way into the American market unless the FDA certifies it as safe and effective. Both.

    In a long, exclusive interview I conducted with Dr. Starfield earlier this year, she made it clear that, since the 2000 publication date, no federal agency had contacted her to consult on taking remedial actions, in the face of all these deaths.

    It was also clear that the federal government had undertaken no massive campaign to cut down on the deaths caused by medical drugs.

    And, of course, no mainstream news outlet has picked up the gauntlet and hammered on this ongoing mind-boggling tragedy.

    106,000 deaths a year. That means, since 2000, roughly a million Americans have died as a result of ingesting medicines. A million.

    Maybe you would also like the government to put little tags on electric extension cords saying not to plug them in with wet hands, and put a warning on rat poison saying not to eat it.

    If I was a business paying somebody to certify medicine, and they couldn't take the time to explain why that many people die after taking such medicine, then I certainly would not continue to pay them to certify medicine. The same way, the FDA should be fired out of the USA government, and anyone who trusted them to certify medicine should start ignoring them the same way you ignore a doctor proven guilty of malpractice. But most people will continue to trust the FDA, so instead I'll call the average person crazy.

    Its the average person's fault those 106,000 people per year die in USA, because the average person continues to trust the FDA while that continues to happen.

    I respect your viewpoint, Ben. The tags and warnings on other hazardous products are already put on, largely in the U.S.

    Now, how do you teach average persons to take charge of their own health, read up and become a little better informed and less gullible?
