Are Prescription Drugs Safe?
By: Dr. Skip Hellen ND, CNC (Health Doctor)
Prescription drugs have saved many lives in emergency situations. Unfortunately, there is
currently a landslide of
evidence that many of these drugs are being over used by the medical industry
and causing harm to tens of thousands of trusting people.
The main problem is the allopathic medical model seeks to control and relieve
symptoms through the use of powerful chemicals (prescription drugs) - very
profitable, rather than restoring biochemical balance (homeostasis) by
understanding natural biochemical needs and supporting those specific needs. By
choosing the chemical drug path, they successfully reduce symptoms in some cases
but totally ignore the fact that toxic accumulation is the foundational cause of
the ill health problem. This is understandable in some cases short term to save
a life but long term use of toxic drugs will never restore health or sure
anything, it will only make the toxic accumulation and systemic biochemical
degradation (rapid aging) worse.
The overwhelming evidence indicates the main reason for the overuse
of drug therapy is money, power and control. Yes the reality is, many of these dangerous drugs are being prescribed,
overused and even abused because they produce monstrous profits, dam the health
of the trusting patients on which they are used. The evidence not only reveals that these drugs are causing
many serious side effects, but they are killing some people as well. While it is true that many of these drugs are killing folks
for profit, little to nothing
is being done to stop this barbaric practice. So fasten your seatbelt as the information
your about to read is disturbing at best. People die needlessly to
preserve and protect huge corporate profits. These facts are being suppressed
and impugned to hide the truth from the general public.
Lets start with the most comprehensive paper ever published on this subject
"Death by Medicine".
This paper was researched, written and published by reputable scientists many of whom are MD's. Where is the accountability
and outrage you may ask, great question? In addition to
"Death by Medicine"
study, the shocking truth continues to be revealed below by
reputable scientific research data, much to the chagrin of the powers that be.
As time marches on there are more and more news reports relating to the tremendous
(iatrogenic - doctor caused) harm of medical
prescription drugs to tens of thousands of people who put their trust in their doctor.
Many of these drugs were designed to mask symptoms of a wide range of ill health
problems and diseases. They are prescribed by so-called reputable doctors and cleared
by the governments Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be safe for public
consumption. With more use and study many
of these drugs are being found to damage health not improve health, some drugs have killed
many people already.
Perhaps you have seen some of the TV and heard some radio ads encouraging people
who may have been injured, even killed by drugs or surgical procedures to
contact a law firm. This is but more evidence that something is seriously wrong
with the current allopathic drug based system. Many of these drug/surgical
procedure problems were caused in year's even decades past by what was then
and in some cases still considered common use and practice.
It is important to understand that drugs are essentially poisons that force
quick biochemical change in a particular way - usually to cover or relieve a
symptom. The best way to resolve a symptom (biochemical imbalance) is to remove
the foundational cause (toxic accumulation and/or malnutrition) thereby
restoring biochemical balance optimal health (homeostasis). Below are a few
articles and links that reveal the facts about dangerous
prescription drugs and what is being done or not done to resolve this serous problem.

Imagine a war on crime in which nobody knew how many murders occurred, or a Federal Aviation
Administration that was unaware of how many airplanes had crashed. Suppose we were so casual
about fatal automobile accidents that it was not even necessary to report one. That is how
we monitor the risks of prescription drugs, though they account for more deaths each year
than all murders, auto accidents and airplane crashes combined. It is estimated that more
than 100,000 people die every year from the adverse effects of prescription drugs, and
1 million are injured so severely they require hospitalization. Many of these deaths and
serious injuries could be prevented with better programs and policies to limit the dangers

U.S. consumers have been buffeted by bad news about the safety of the prescription drugs
they take. One shock was the revelation of serious heart risks from the pain reliever
Vioxx. Then “black box” warnings about an increased risk of suicide in young people were
slapped on all antidepressants.
A leader of the Food and Drug Administration's drug-safety office has told Congress that
the agency and its once-vaunted Center for Drug Evaluation and Research are “broken.” The
FDA is currently the object of several investigations, including one initiated at its own
A Consumer Reports investigation has now found that tens of millions of people may unknowingly
have been exposed to the rare but serious side effects of a dozen relatively common
prescription-drug types. Collectively, the drugs, sold in 140 brand-name or generic versions,
accounted for some 266 million prescriptions in the U.S. and almost $25 billion in sales during
the 12 months ending in September 2005, according to NDCHealth, an Atlanta-based health-care-information

Go to Death by Regulation: Article
Consumers are being defrauded out of their health and money by a regulatory system that is
a proven failure.
Back in the early 1980s, the Life Extension Foundation provided compelling evidence that
FDA-approved drugs were dangerous and overpriced. We also gave examples of lifesaving medications
that the FDA delayed, resulting in the needless deaths of millions of Americans.
We warned of a health care cost crisis if Congress did not abolish the FDA or markedly diminish
the agency’s powers. We even went so far as to establish the FDA Museum to specifically document
how flawed government regulatory policies were the leading cause of death in the US.
Sadly, most of the reforms we sought did not pass Congress. The result is that health care has
become so expensive that record numbers of Americans are without medical insurance.1,2 Those
who have insurance are paying outlandishly high premiums and deductibles. Medicare faces insolvency,
FDA-approved drugs are killing record numbers of Americans,3 and medical innovation is stifled by

The above facts paint a very dismal picture of the current medical,
pharmaceutical and regulatory landscape
and we didn't even discus the "affordable health care act" (i.e. Obama Care)
which is shaping up to be the biggest disaster in modern health care history. We
live in a very tumultuous time where power, corruption, criminal behavior are
being condoned, even encouraged while the constitution and bill of rights are
being ignored based on political ideology. The mantra being trumpeted by those
in power is we must restore fairness while all the time unfairness is more
prevalent now than any time in modern history. Sanity, patriotism, personal
responsibility, sacrifice and hard work, the cornerstones of a ones great
America have been replaced with insanity, irresponsibility, disrespect,
unfairness, victimization, lawlessness and entitlement. We have indeed lost our
character as a nation and in my humble opinion we are way past the point of no
return. I prey I'm wrong, if not God help us we are going to need it.

It’s important to understand that optimal health can only
be achieved and maintained when nutritional, physical, and mental requirements
are met resulting in systemic biological balance (homeostasis).
The following are the cornerstones of success with anything
in life, make these qualities an important part of your life strategy and you
will achieve excellence in anything you do.
character requires personal
commitment advances positive
tenacity promotes success
~ Dr. Skip Hellen
OPTIMAL HEALTH ACTION STEPS
1. (Develop) a strong sense of self respect and discipline
2. (Pledge) Take the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledge
3. (Test) Complete the health assessment test (establish a personal health baseline)
4. (Decide) Set a goal to achieve personal health excellence (optimal health)
5. (Education) Learn health principles how to achieve optimum health
6. (Heath Compass) Buy a pH litmus test kit, start testing frequently – keep a test result log
7. (Manage/Adjust) Change behavior habits for best results
8. (Commitment) Stay the course until achieving personal health excellence
9. (Mentor) Help another achieve personal health excellence
Since behavior habits and nutrition are critical components of human health and longevity,
denial, shortcuts and misguided beliefs can be very costly not only in terms of lost monetary
wealth but in compromised health leading to rapid aging, illness, disease and death.
DON’T TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED. IF YOU DON’T TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR
HEALTH, WHO WILL?
The important thing to remember is consumptive habits (foods) will form the foundation of
either optimal health or illness and disease. The old saying "you are what you eat" is absolutely
true when it comes to health.
Developing strong personal character (respect, belief, knowledge, discipline, commitment)
are the cornerstones of all personal excellence accomplishments.
Taking the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledges and adopting the behavior principles
solidifies a vital first step on the road to optimal health success. These pledge
commitments not only help develop the skills required to accomplish the goal but better define
the path to personal health excellence. The second step is purchasing a litmus test kit to
accurately monitor health progress. (see below for event test kit sale)

unhealthy behavior habits to
