"Developing our capacity for compassion makes it possible for us to help others in a more skillful and effective way." - Joan Halifax
According to the United States’ Food and Drug Administration, 1.5 million Americans were hospitalized in 1978 alone, as a consequence of pharmaceutical drugs administered to “cure” them. It was also found that some 30% of all hospitalized people suffered further damage from the therapy prescribed them.
In the 1990s, studies show that 180,000 medically-induced deaths occur each year in the USA. Most of these are prescription drug related. These astronomical figures are in spite of the fact that a large number of drug damages go unreported.
