Death by medicine is a twenty-first century epidemic, and America’s war on drugs is clearly directed at the wrong enemy. – Dr. Joseph Mercola 
I have briefly focused on mushrooms and cannabis as medicine sources. Now, it is only fair to shine the spotlight on the other side of the medicinal spectrum: prescription drugs. One could go through and list the pros and cons of each individual prescription drug or, to save some time, one could first approach prescription drugs as a whole. Doing so exposes an alarming truth, ringing louder than the individual benefits of each drug. Prescription drugs are currently responsible for more deaths annually than illegal drugs.
According to Tom Frieden, the CDC director himself, “it’s a big problem, and it’s getting worse .”
Out of the 783,936 annual deaths from conventional medicine mistakes, approximately 106,000 of those are the result of prescription drug use . According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, two-hundred and ninety people in the United States are killed by prescription drugs every day .
Even if prescription drugs do not literally kill a patient, though, they slowly kill their mind and body. This alters their ability to innately feel deeply and compassionately, the patient can be stripped piece by piece of their inner awareness and inner consciousness, the very essence of their being.
