The 3rd Leading cause of death in the U.S. is medical error, ranging from 250,000 to 440,000 deaths per year. Big pharma and doctors are also responsible for the Opioid epidemic due to the bribes taken by doctors to over prescribe pills.

According to a John Hopkins study, the 3rd leading cause of death is medical errors.

The Johns Hopkins team says the CDC’s way of collecting national health statistics fails to classify medical errors separately on the death certificate.

“At that time, it was under-recognized that diagnostic errors, medical mistakes, and the absence of safety nets could result in someone’s death,” says Makary, “and because of that, medical errors were unintentionally excluded from national health statistics.”

Big pharma was caught bribing doctors to push opioids to create the epidemic.
