"A recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) concluded that the frequency of severe and fatal reactions to prescribed drugs in the United States is ‘extremely high.’ More than 100,000 people per year are estimated to die in hospitals from drug reactions, implicating medications as one of the nation’s top killers. Depending on the specific estimate, drug reactions in hospitals may constitute either the fourth or the sixth leading cause of death behind heart disease, cancer, and stroke." — Breggin & Cohen, "Your Drug May Be Your Problem"
