Public Enemies Number 1,2,3

The Centers for Disease Control have stated that Public Enemies 1 and 2 are tobacco smoking and uncontrolled blood pressure. I agree with these assessments, but what is Number 3? In my opinion, it is iatrogenics. Iatrogenic means caused by the physician. That includes mistakes, drug interactions, drug side effects, complications from surgeries, and omissions. Conventional physicians have chosen a high-risk path when they limit themselves to potentially toxic drugs and surgery. Prevention, nutrition, exercise, stress reduction, supplements, and many other low-risk, effective therapies are available and should all be considered and perhaps tried before riskier therapies are offered. www.healthcelebration.com
