Prescription drugs are considered to be the third cause of death. Half of these people die because of the side effects, “doing what their doctors told them” while the other half die because of medical errors.
Dr. Gøtzsche states that the strategies pharma industry uses, “fulfill the criteria for organized crime” and that many of the prescribed medicines are in fact not necessary, causing more harm than good and leading to further mental and physical ailments.
