Rising reports of bad reactions to pharmaceutical drugs

This new study confirms my impression that conventional medicine, and Big Pharma drugs, are getting more dangerous. The study states that official reports of 'negative reactions' to prescription drugs have increased dramatically over the last decade.

          "Between 2000 and 2010, the number of reports coming in grew steadily by more than 11 percent every year. By 2010, they added up to 2.2 million reports - 55 percent of the entire database total".

The study looked at official FDA figures, but what has to be remembered is that it is estimated that only 10% of adverse reactions (DIEs) are reported to these regulatory agencies, not least because conventional mEDICAL practitioners spend a great deal of their time denying that the drugs they have prescribed could possibly have caused any problems!

I suspect the conventional medical establishment will respond to this in the normal way! More people are taking the drugs! More people are reporting side effects (or DIEs)! But one way or another, conventional medicine is just a very dangerous form of medicine.
