It is estimated that in America last year, nearly $2 trillion was spent on health care — and virtually all that money was spent on treating disease.1 Despite this massive expenditure on treatment, more Americans are sicker than ever before with diseases that are largely preventable: heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and depression, to name a few.
Each year more money is spent on treatment, mere patchwork, even though it has become crystal-clear that treatments do NOT enable you to live a longer, better life. So why is the amount of money being spent on prevention just a pittance compared with the amount spent on treatment?
The answer is simple — when you are sick it is highly profitable to various giant corporations. When you are well, it doesn’t profit them much at all.
Over the years, I have compiled many articles that support evidence that the conventional health system results in more harm than good. But no one has ever analyzed and combined ALL of the published literature dealing with injuries and deaths caused by government-protected medicine and reproduced the information in such an easy-to-follow, insightful and compelling medium — that is, UNTIL NOW.
Gary Null’s new DVD, Prescription For Disaster, is a must-see in-depth investigation and expose of the conventional health care syste — and that’s putting it lightly. It describes in detail the failure of the traditional paradigm and provides us with shocking statistics on the thousands and thousands of deaths that resulted from unnecessary or incorrect medical treatments.
Prescription For Disaster takes you deep into the symbiotic relationships between the pharmaceutical industry, the FDA, lobbyists, lawmakers, medical schools, and researchers, and the impact this has on consumers and their health care.
During this thorough investigation from medical insiders, you get a first hand look at:
- Why patented drugs are so readily prescribed by doctors
- The role insurance companies and HMO’s play in promoting compliance, and the problem of rising health care costs
- The marketing and public relations efforts on behalf of the pharmaceutical companies — including sales reps, medical journals and conferences
Alternatives to traditional pharmacology and drug therapy — vitamins, nutritional supplements, alternative nutritional therapies, exercise, healthy lifestyle changes — and why they are often perceived as a competitive threat to the drug manufacturers
- The problem of rising health care costs
As a research scientist at the Institute of Applied Biology for over 27 years, Gary Null, Ph.D., has spent his career investigating health issues and searching for the truth. A New York Times best-selling author, the host of the talk radio program, “The Gary Null Show,” producer of documentary films, DVDs and PBS television programs, Null empowers all who will listen with life-changing facts that promote wellness.
Studies have estimated that prescription drugs kill approximately 100,000 Americans each year. PRESCRIPTION FOR DISASTER is your first step in educating yourself and those you love to what is really at stake the next time you watch a drug advertisement on television and assume that the advertised drug is what you should be taking.
Prescription For Disaster is a landmark investigative journal that lends further credence and urgency to my vision and my quest to transform the medical paradigm to one that is sincerely dedicated to listening to the patients’ concerns and expressing commitment to their health and well-being at the deepest levels.
Death By Medicine: Millions of Lives Lost at the Hands of Conventional Medicine
Prescription For Disaster was born from a meticulously referenced seven-year report entitled “Death By Medicine,” originally authored by Gary Null, along with a prestigious group of physicians and medical researchers, to determine why Americans were not becoming healthier and why our medical system is not working properly.
With the lack of understanding in today’s society that powerful drugs used to treat disease have potential side effects that can be life threatening themselves, Null felt it was mandatory to fully examine the number of people who have been sickened by these treatments and medications.
Null’s team examined virtually every area and specialty of American medicine, asking one basic question: have the therapies offered been proven safe and effective?
Their statistical findings were undeniably dire showing the number of:
- People having in-hospital, adverse reactions to prescribed drugs to be 2.2 million per year
- Unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections at 20 million per year
- Unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually at 7.5 million per year
- People exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually at 8.9 million per year
The most stunning statistic, however, showed the total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine at an astounding 783,936 per year — making it evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the US. By contrast, the number of deaths attributable to heart disease in 2001 was 699,697, while the number of deaths attributable to cancer was 553,251.2
Null and his colleagues had accomplished much more than an exposé of the horrifying statistics of our inadequate healthcare system — they had initiated a purposeful tool in the war for meaningful reform.
Dr. David Graham the Vioxx Whistleblower, Exposes the FDA
Prescription for Disaster opens with explosive Senate testimony from Dr. David Graham, senior drug safety researcher at the FDA. Dr. Graham is no outside critic — these are powerful statements from a top FDA employee who has worked at the agency for two decades.
Plus, you’ll hear Graham reveal many more jaw-dropping insights regarding the corruption and crimes that take place every day inside the Food and Drug Administration in an exclusive interview conducted by Manette Loudon, the lead investigator for Dr. Null. In this documentary, you’ll discover how the drug industry pulled off the greatest con of our time — turning the human body into a profit-generating machine!
PRESCRIPTION FOR DISASTER is the definitive guide on the journey through the tangled web of big business, the way disease is treated today, and the consequences we suffer as a society. Medical insiders reveal how your health and even your basic freedoms may be at risk!
