A woman went to a physician when perhaps 3 months pregnant. The pregnancy test revealed a false negative caused by

either the physician, the pregnancy test, or lab error.  The doctor then scheduled a barium test in which radioactive material is injected into the intestines  The radiation was a factor in the woman's placental

abruption which caused the death of her son and nearly her own life.


At a famous Cleveland hospital a man with Parkinson's was made a huamn guinea pig. Alcohol was injected directly into his brain.  He wept silently after the operation, saying he could no ionger think.

 

Untold numbers of deaths occur because of the skyrocketing cause of

The FDA allows pharmaceutical companies to advertise drugs whose effects can be fatal causes of heart attack, stroke, and lifeharming

blindness, permanent shaking (tardive dyskinsia), memory loss,

etc.
