Hello Everyone,


A friend sent me a link relating to what is the leading cause of death in the USA. I thought that #2 would be #1.

The leading cause was not on my radar.

How about YOU are you surprised? I was.

Yea John, that was not something I would have expected especially with the numbers they say. Makes one think that if it takes so long to get a drug approved for usage in the US, that maybe they should do more focus on death causes by said drug. Not sure moving to a more streamlined process of getting these drugs approved will necessarily improve health.

Jon,

You're bringing up some great points. One of the things that totally amazes me is to see commercials that tell you about Drug X, Y, or Z and at the end of the commercial they often list potential side effects that are far more devastating than the condition for which the drug is being prescribed.
