Preventable medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the US, right after heart disease and cancer, claiming the lives of 210,000 Americans each year
The federal government has quietly decided to “solve” the problem of hospital acquired conditions by burying the data
On the average, you have a 54 percent lower risk of dying in a five-star rated hospital compared to the national average. Hospitals catering primarily to Medicare patients tend to be among the worst
More than two million people are affected by hospital-acquired infections each year, and 75,000-100,000 people die as a result of those infections
Leading a common-sense, healthy lifestyle is your best bet to avoid unnecessary hospital visits. Basic tenets of optimal health are included
By Dr. Mercola
Harm and death caused by medical errors are a huge problem, and a major reason why the current, fatally flawed medical paradigm is in such desperate need of transformation.
Preventable medical mistakes are actually the third leading cause of death in the US, right after heart disease and cancer, claiming the lives of 210,000 Americans each year.
When you add in diagnostic errors, errors of omission, and failure to follow guidelines, the number skyrockets to an estimated 440,000 preventable hospital deaths each year.
According to the most recent estimates published last year,1 preventable medical mistakes account for about one-sixth of all deaths that occur in the US annually. This is more than 4.5 times higher than 1999 estimates.2
When you consider instances where medical errors cause some form of harm but not necessarily death, the incidence rate may be as high as 40,000 per day!3
As a general rule, staying out of the hospital is one of your best ways to prevent dying unnecessarily, and this is one of the reasons why I’m so passionate about sharing preventive health strategies with you — tips like eating right, exercising, and reducing stress.
Exceptions would naturally include cases of accidental trauma or surgical emergencies. This is where modern medicine can be truly lifesaving.
Root canals are one of the most common and widespread dental procedures on the planet. Statistics presented by the American Association of Endodontists show that at least 15 million root canals are performed every year. That’s roughly 41,000 a day. With these numbers, this procedure may seem routine or even harmless, but the root canal involves a number of health risks.
Root Canals Raise Red Flags for Your Health
Root canals can be detrimental to your health because the teeth affected have the potential to be “incubators” for toxic anaerobic bacteria, which can go into your bloodstream and cause severe medical conditions. What’s worse, you may not be able to detect these until years later.
How do these health risks make their way to your body? The answer lies in the way the procedure is carried out. In root canals, the dentist hollows out the tooth in question, then fills the empty chamber with a tough, plastic substance called gutta-percha, which comes from the latex of trees. It resembles rubber and is used for insulation and other dental procedures. This cuts the tooth off from its blood supply and no fluids are able to circulate through the tooth.
The problems begin here as the middle portion of each tooth is home to the pulp chamber where blood vessels and nerves are. These portions are surrounded by two hard layers, namely the dentin and the white enamel. These have roots that descend into your jawbone and are held in place by the periodontal ligament.
Dental schools usually teach their students that there are one to four major canals connected to each tooth. In reality, however, there can be more. In these passageways, microscopic organisms can move about, and it’s where they can turn into harmful bacteria and hide from antibiotics and your body’s immune defenses.
These dangerous, virus-loaded organisms can produce toxins, waiting for an opportunity to spread after hiding in the canals where no amount of sterilization has been proven effective on them.
Every single root-canaled tooth houses these bacteria around the apex and in the periodontal ligament. They may extend to the jawbone where they can cause cavitations, areas of unhealed bone often with infected tissue and gangrene. They normally form after tooth extractions or root canals.
The accusations around Chinese tech giant Huawei have left phone owners and internet users with a real dilemma. The choice is not so much what features you want on your handset, but which spies you’re most comfortable with.
Huawei has strongly denied the accusations which appear to be based, not on publicly available evidence, but that secret kind of evidence spy chiefs tend to keep to themselves.
In case you’ve missed what’s going on, Huawei has made big inroads into the technology market that the West has happily dominated forever. It already sells more phones than Apple. Most significantly, the firm is steaming ahead in the development of the next generation 5G network.
This is the technology which will allow you to download movies in your work’s restroom in about 3 seconds, allow your bathroom scales to warn your fridge that you’re approaching thanks to the internet of things, and…
Deer in a residential community in Yantis, Texas, are being netted and killed in a misguided attempt to reduce their population. Every minute spent trapped is a terrifying eternity for these easily frightened prey animals, who can badly injure themselves in frantic attempts to get free. Families of deer are torn apart, leaving young and weak animals vulnerable to starvation and dehydration. Your voice is needed now.
After enduring a decade of deprivation and frustration, Ben and Bogey are now free to play and explore the lush environment around them. See video footage of the bears at The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado, where they’re currently hibernating (wait until you see them playing and swimming!), and then learn how you can help other bears who are still languishing at roadside…
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. claims the CDC owns patents on at least 57 different vaccines, and profits $4.1 billion per year in vaccination sales.
According to RFK Jr., the CDC is not an independent government agency but is actually a subsidiary of Big Pharma.
Greenmedinfo.com reports: Mr. Kennedy told EcoWatch, “The CDC is a subsidiary of the pharmaceutical industry. The agency owns more than 20 vaccine patents and purchases and sells $4.1 billion in vaccines annually.” Again, no source.
I have been around long enough to know that vaccine claims have to be checked and rechecked. And since this is a very old claim, one that I would like to be able to state (if it is true), I decided to review it.
I am fortunate to have, as one of my partners in advocacy, fellow autism parent Mark Blaxill, an Intellectual Property expert who has been employed by billion…
There are growing concerns about the safety of pelvic mesh implants. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classified a vaginal pelvic mesh implant as a high-risk device. According to The Guardian, 1 in 15 UK women who received vaginal pelvic mesh implants in a ten year period had to have these partially or fully removed due…
We recently posted a story about Joel Lund of Wanaka who while attending a local function, chanced upon Lou Sanson, the CE of NZ’s Department of Conservation (DoC). As anyone would, Joel made the most of that random opportunity to ask him some questions. It’s getting pretty difficult to dialogue with any DoC staff these days going by reports I’m hearing where folk with standard questions about impending drops get the short shift & are promptly hung up on. So Joel asked the CE some pertinent questions on the use of aerial 1080, particularly the use of alternatives. This move on Joel’s part has since been decried in social media however because as it transpires, the CE was actually attending a funeral. He’s been reported as saying it was a reluctant ‘interview’ & considered inappropriate.
As unfortunate as the setting may have been & with all due respects to the grieving, nevertheless indifference to human feelings goes with the territory of a corporation … an entity that exists for profit only … owing no allegiance to humans whatsoever…
“Corporations are required by law to place the financial interests of their owners above competing interests. They are legally bound to put their bottom line ahead of everything else, even the public good” (Noam Chomsky, ‘The Corporation’).
A corporation has been defined as “… a business structure whose sole reason for existence is the earning of profits by manufacturing products for as little as possible and selling them for as much as possible. It does not matter whether the product does good or evil; what counts is that it be consumed – in ever-increasing quantities” (Barnet & Muller, ‘Global Reach: The Power of the Multinational Corporations’ p24)
Corporations are analyzed in this documentary using the World Health Organization’s personality diagnostic checklist & are found to exhibit all the traits of a psychopathic personality. The Corporation movie is your Corporations 101 class, an absolute must watch. Viewing it will connect many dots for you and explain much about the state the world is in today. The psychopathic diagnosis checklist for this disorder includes the following:
A callous unconcern for the feelings of others
An incapacity to maintain enduring relationships
A reckless disregard for the safety of others
Deceitfulness: repeated lying and conning others for profit
An incapacity to experience guilt
Failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behavior
All sounds pretty familiar doesn’t it when you consider what we’ve been up against with regard to any negotiation over 1080 poison drops on our land, water and food. So, in light of all of the above, is the CE bothered about the two South Island women showered with 1080 pellets whilst out picnicking or their subsequent ongoing health issues? It would seem not. Was he concerned that the NZ lab lost a young hiker’s heart who according to her Doctor, may have been poisoned by 1080? It appears not as there are still no answers forthcoming on that one. Is he concerned at all about the Putaruru family who may have been poisoned by his corporation’s favorite poison? Or that the hospital did not test them in a timely fashion as recommended by the health professionals attending them? It would seem not. And what of the recent risk of 1080 in Auckland’s water supply? No again. Is he bothered that thousands of target and non-target animals and other wildlife die very long and agonizing deaths following his corporation’s ongoing 1080 drops? Or is he concerned that according to the late Dr Peter Scanlon 1080 may have been implicated in causing a cluster of miscarriages, stillbirths and congenital malformations to the children of pregnant women following aerial drops on the Whanganui River? Or that the data sheet of his corporation’s poison says not to drop it into waterways?
So if this is the modus operandi that corporations operate under, then why the surprise or offense from corporates about the setting of an impromptu interview when you clearly get what you give? Of all people they know the rules of engagement. Methinks it is more about diversion from the real issue at hand for the NZers who would like to decline the option of 1080 in their food chain.
Remember the CE of Nestlé’s notorious statement about water not being a human right? This is the mentality we are dealing with here.
Make no mistake, corporations do not care about you. Profits are their only concern. Remember the recent helicopter entourage of 30 international bankers including the head of Goldman Sachs escorted by Lou Sanson over Fiordland? At the bottom of that one was the intriguing Nature Conservancy group ... for-profit corporations partnering with environmental organizations … known today as ‘greenwash’. Dirty corporations like Dow that are as much about conservation as pigs are about flying. ‘Conservation’ for profit. On that topic, consider the revelations of a former Taupo Mayor who exposed the gravy train that 1080 is, who did have a go at eliminating the poison, to no avail unfortunately. Mayors who are generally on as little as one third that of their CEs’ salaries clearly have no more voting power than the councilors who agree with them.
I reiterate, please do watch ‘The Corporation’ movie. If the entire planet stopped buying their stuff they would collapse overnight.
They rely on your patronage to continue their obscene practice of sucking everything on the planet dry … for profit … smiling at you and shaking your hand as they do so.
They are, after all, very good at lying & conning for profit. According to that WHO checklist at any rate.

On topic, there was a time in NZ when we had ongoing post natal visits from Plunket, District Nurses etc. This was standard and was about health. My guess here is that it’s about the ongoing push for mandatory vaccines which be assured now have way more toxic ingredients than they did during my childhood. And are also given in far greater numbers and concentration. Along with all of the injuries & deaths that have been going with that. All denied of course.
Here we have the proposed return of those visits (not this country … ) with a different looking agenda.
Oregon Governor Kate Brown introduced a new bill that will allow in-home surveillance on the families of newborn babies.
Brown introduced Senate Bill 526 to the Oregon Legislative Assembly as part of her budget package. The budget allows Oregon Health Authority personnel to look into or “study home visiting by licensed health care providers.” Lawmakers are calling SB 526 an “emergency measure.” Meaning, the bill could be rushed to approval by year’s end.
The Oregon Health Authority shall study home visiting by licensed health care providers in this state. The authority shall submit findings and recommendations for legislation to an interim committee of the Legislative Assembly related to health care not later than December 31, 2019.
There are an astounding 18 sponsors to the bill who collectively state that its “necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety,” and therefore “an emergency is declared to exist.” …..
There is nothing written into the bill that cites it would be a mandatory event, but it doesn’t say it won’t be, either. It states it is “universal,” which in socialist terms, is never a comforting descriptor of any government program. Again, you’re being pitched increased safety and security; you’re getting surveillance. Hopefully, that’s clear.
Many states have pushed for increased surveillance on homeschool children, but this is a first blatant attempt to monitor all kids. Either case is bad, but the “universal” aspect is horrendous.
If you think such laws are impossible to pass, think again.
This excerpt from ParentalRights.org explains how Supreme Court ruling from 2000 seemingly vacated parental rights over such issues.
Two videos from YT on the ongoing yellow vest protests in France. The first one gives a graphic view of the force of the police there (80K of them, and previous reports say they are believed to have been infiltrated by EU German forces) & the second a glimpse into the very brutal police retaliation, rubber bullets at close very range, (dropping tear gas from helicopters in other videos), also graphic footage of outright beating of innocent by standers, one an elderly man at a bus stop with his wife that has gone viral. Disturbing times. Just watching this situation.
