Medical News Today reports that in 2011, doctors wrote 4.02 billion prescriptions for drugs in America.
That’s an average of roughly 13 prescriptions for each man, woman, and child.
This number is based on prescriptions, not over the counter drugs, or even vaccines were included in these numbers! I take no drugs, so someone is having to take my 13 to make up the average! If this does not cause your jaw to drop, then something is quite wrong.
How many of these drugs could have been prevented had we tried an alternative route?
