Notice in this video that leading cause of death for a male 30 years old is “poisoning”, second is “suicide” and third, is “car accident”. In all of the articles I have read about death statistics they don’t call it “death by prescription drug” or “prescription and human error” or “malpractice” for instance. But rather when there is a drug related or “fatal hospital incident”. The hospital incidents happen much more than you would think. Another sad but true statistic is Death by accident is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. Also between 2000 and 2008 motor vehicle crashes were the leading cause of death by injury, but suicide surpassed car crashes in 2009, according to a recent study in the American Journal of Public Health. So there’s a good chance we will go-out in our cars. Lol! All we do is laugh and use our time as best we know how, However that is?

Once you realize the connection between street drugs and prescription drugs, it’s easy to figure out why Big Pharma is such a strong supporter of the Partnership For A Drug-Free America — because they don’t want consumers getting their drugs from street dealers, they want people buying their drugs from drug companies!
