Every Drug Has Side Effects
Dr. Bernard Jensen, ND., DC., Ph.D., wrote: Once an organ or tissue area has become irritated and weakened by chemical settlements, its ability to throw off toxins is further reduced and it may become a repository for other drugs, chemicals and toxins as they are circulated to this part of the body by the blood steam. Additionally, some drugs and chemicals, particularly the heavy metals such as lead and mercury, tend to accumulate in the body more so than others, leading to increasingly serious problems.
The iridologist will find this condition signaled by an increasing degree of darkness in the corresponding area of the iris, showing that the tissue is going from the subacute to the chronic and degenerative stages.
Every drug has side effects. Even aspirin irritates he stomach in many people and causes a variety of unpleasant symptoms in others. Some decades back, a drug called thalidomide was hastily removed from the market when it was found to be causing grotesque birth defects.
There is great concern bout the “time-bomb effects” of certain drugs, in particular, the suppressants – those which suppress the symptoms of disease – but also, those that tend to accumulate in the body over a period of time, when the body cannot rid itself of a toxic substance which continually irritates the tissue where it has settled, a tumor or cancerous growth may develop. All chronic diseases may be traced to toxic settlement or to suppression of catarrh (either one leads to the other), and I believe that drugs are to be blamed for these conditions in many cases. This is the “time-bomb effect.” This is what happens after many years of reliance on drugs.
Major time-bomb drug: Diethylstilbestrol (DES) also known as Stilboestrol®) is a synthetic form of the female hormone estrogen was commonly prescribed to pregnant women to prevent miscarriage, premature labor, and related complications of pregnancy. Starting in 1939 to 1978, several million women were given this very dangerous drug during their first tri-mester of pregnancy under the lie that it would prevent miscarriage and other complications during pregnancy. From the start it was unsuccessful, but it was continually prescribed for 31 more years, when in 1971 it was found that DES caused vaginal tumors in girls and women who had been exposed to this pharmaceutical drug. It still was prescribed for 7 more years, when in 1980, it was finally banned by the FDA.
The time-bomb explodes: Years later DES became a horror story of unimaginable proportions because it didn’t stop with the mother. Besides causing nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, bloating, loss of appetite, fluid retention, breast tenderness enlargement, and diminished fertility and increased auto-immune diseases, it also caused rashes, loss of libido, depression and hair loss and sometimes Jaundice and blood clots. But the worst was yet to come; the epigenetic transgenerational inheritance aspect of this. It was found that this great wonder drug, which produced vast profits, caused cancers and other abnormalities including infertility and urogenital mutations in the children that had been born from mothers who received the drug. Years later, the offspring of the children who survived their cancers also developed the same diseases. We’ve now seen 3 generations and these problems continue to be present in each new generation. Numerous studies now indicates that these epigenetic programs are permanently inscribed in all future generations.
Note: DES or Stilboestrol diphosphate is now known as Fosfestrol and its trade name Honvan is used today to treat cancer of the prostate gland.
In 1982, Dr. Bernard Jensen wrote: The United States Department of health, Education and Welfare’s Task Force on Drug Prescriptions has reported that physicians tend to over-prescribe medicines, bot in quantity and variety, for the same illness. About 300,00 people in this country are hospitalized each year for server adverse drug reactions. Approximately 18,000 die annually from drug side effects. Many patients become ill from medications without getting any benefit from them.
Only ten years later those figures rose shockingly higher: More than 1.8 million Americans suffered serious, toxic side effects from medical drugs and had to be hospitalized. By 1996 those figures were averaging over 2 million Americans a year! 1/3 of the people admitted to hospitals are there because of the toxic effects of medications. In 1996 it was reported that nearly 700,000 Americans die each year of secondary side effects from medications.
The most stunning statistic, however, is that the total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine is an astounding 783,936 per year. It is now evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the US. (By contrast, the number of deaths attributable to heart disease in 2001 was 699,697, while the number of deaths attributable to cancer was 553,251.5)
Using Leape’s 1997 medical and drug error rate of 3 million(14) multiplied by the 14% fatality rate he used in 1994(16) produces an annual death rate of 420,000 for drug errors and medical errors combined. Using this number instead of Lazorou’s 106,000 drug errors and the Institute of Medicine ‘s (IOM) estimated 98,000 annual medical errors would add another 216,000 deaths, for a total of 999,936 deaths annually.
– In 1986, over 2,556 deaths a year are caused from the use of over-the-counter drugs!
– About 90% of the patients who visit doctors have conditions that will either improve on their own or that are out of reach of modern medicine’s ability to solve.
– Compared to home births, babies born in hospitals are 6 times more likely to suffer distress during labor and delivery, 8 times more likely to get caught in the birth canal, 4 times more likely to need resuscitation, 4 times more likely to become infected, and 30 times more likely to be permanently injured, and mothers are 3 times more likely to hemorrhage.
After sharing the above info with Toni Toney, she did some research and sent the following to me: All drugs cause adverse effects. Many drugs are marketed at dosages that are risky for many patients, referred to as a narrow therapeutic index. Sixteen major drugs have been pulled off the North American market since 1997 for injuring or killing patients including the drug that killed Vanessa Young – Prepulsid. Vioxx alone may have killed 55,000-65,000 patients before being withdrawn by the manufacturer, Merck, in 2004.
Over-the-counter drugs also cause many deaths. Every year, more than 15,000 patients die in North America from ordinary aspirin and Ibuprofen alone. Tylenol is the cause of thousands of hospital admissions and hundreds of deaths annually in North America.
