My Doctor is Killing Me - a Preview

By: Michael Lam, MD, MPH


Introduction

Though they try not to, too often your Doctor is Killing you through misinformation "Doctors Are the Third Leading Cause of Death In the US"

Seems hard to believe, but the most widely circulated medical periodical in the world, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), published this information July 26, 2000. The author is Dr. Barbara Starfield of the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health. According to Dr. Starfield, 225,000 deaths per year are due to causes induced by a physician's activity, manner, or therapy. These deaths include 12,000 from unnecessary surgery; 7,000 from hospital medication errors; 80,000 from hospital infections; 20,000 from hospital errors, and 106,000 from non-error but negative effects of drugs.

These estimates are for deaths only and do not include negative effects that are associated with disability or discomfort.

225,000 deaths per year constitute the third leading cause of death in the United States, after deaths from heart disease and cancer.
