The High Risks of the Medical Approach
Dr. Lucian Leape, researcher at the Harvard Medical School of Public Health, also states that only 13% of medical procedures have ever been tested for appropriateness by randomized trials.
He noted that adverse events occurred in 3.7 percent of all hospitalizations. Worse yet, 13.6 percent of those adverse events led to death!
He is quoted as saying, “Medicine is now a high risk industry, like aviation.
But, the chance of dying in an aviation accident is one in 2 million, while the risk of dying from a medical accident is one in 200!”
I think I’ll take acupuncture anytime!
