Prescription Overdoses Cause More Death Than Drugs

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (from USA Today): “Drug overdose deaths rose for the 11th straight year, federal data show, and most of them were accidents involving addictive painkillers despite growing attention to risks from these medicines.

“‘The big picture is that this is a big problem that has gotten much worse quickly,’ said Thomas Frieden, head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which gathered and analyzed the data.

“In 2010, the CDC reported, there were 38,329 drug overdose deaths nationwide. Medicines, mostly prescription drugs, were involved in nearly 60% of overdose deaths that year, overshadowing deaths from illicit narcotics. …

“Anti-anxiety drugs including Valium were among common causes of medication-related deaths, involved in almost 30% of them. Among the medication-related deaths, 17% were suicides….

“Last month, a federal panel of drug safety specialists recommended that Vicodin and dozens of other medicines be subjected to the same restrictions as other narcotic drugs like oxycodone and morphine.”

My Comment: The problem is not in treatment, but in the eradication of causes, and it is in general depression, emptiness, and lack of meaning. If a person is filled with good mood and spirit, he will almost always be healthy.

  1. I doubt, i think that drugs causes worldwide more death. I know you mean something differrent , but i think, that for example using cocaine is the problem of the western world in general. We are able to fight wars in the middle east or far east, nearly in every part of the world we can win. But to win the fight against cocaine seems unpossible, but to bring Tikkun Olam it is nessecary to win this fight. I know that the USA has bases in Kolumbia. Dear Rabbi, the whole hollywood scene is on cocaine, the majority musician scene is on cocaine, the bankers, the inssurence companies, in the media, TV scene, at the wallstreet and other important markets etc. I mean, i made experiences on my own in this life, and cocaine is a very very dangerous drug. See, if people are addicted to that drug, they are ready and able to walk over people who are struggling and lying on the ground or people who are near death.This is the root of the problem, you cannot chance this people’s mind or conciousness, it is not possible. Think about, we would have people in the congress or house of representatives or even in the government who are addicted ? Many of them have immunity. I mean, everyday people die in poverty in Afrca, caused by cocaine Manhatten, who do not want to change the system. See Rabbi, the german police is standing at the harbour for example, to search for ships with cocaine, but what is, when it comes with the planes, from Kolumbia with the US Airforce straight to Rammstein airport military base. It would be nearly untouchable for the police. You understand the problem ? We have to destroy cocaine. At the end there will be growth and vegetation, herb and plant. coca no es cocaina said Comandante Chavez, and as a native american he spoke the truth. Gold diamonds and cocaine are the weapons of the Israelites , there i would say, i shame myself to be a jew. With this i do not want have to do something or participate. And with this money Israel can built iron domes, but thousands children are living near poverty in Israel ? Cocaine is the drug of the high society, so its better to eleminate the high society, and bring conciosness back to the people to be MEEK, what is nessecary to safe the life of childrens children in the future. The cocaine high society do not want to safe the human race, they will maintain the human race under 500 million. Georgia Guidestones. The whole system of the western world, which causes the desaster of planet earth and human race, depends on cocaine, lets fight against this drug. This life is not about to create drugs that we can life 120 years or longer, the main point is, that our Ignorance let not die or kill innocent and poor people. The sukkah of David is so far away for the human race, like the distance from here to Polaris.
