 The Harvard School of Public Health has assessed the role of drugs in deaths at great depth. When properly prescribed and taken as directed, the lowest estimated death toll from pharmaceutical drugs is still around 85,000 people a year. The high estimate is around 135,000 people annually, while the generally accepted estimate is about 106,000 people a year. That’s 106,000 dead Americans every year from properly prescribed drugs, not medical errors; drugs taken as directed, not overdose. That means that each decade, “normal” side effects of drugs are killing about 1 million people in the U.S. Comparison research studies have shown that people under regular preventative chiropractic care generally take less medications, visit the doctor less and are healthier. Since chiropractic is 100% natural drug-free health care, visiting the chiropractor does not result in a prescription for medications. The premise for preventative chiropractic maintenance care is that by correcting spinal alignment on a regular basis, the improved neural impulse flow maintains or improves function in the body. Proper function equals greater health. A healthy body does not require medications. The chiropractor plays a significant role in improving health, reducing the use of drugs and medications and thus saving lives in the process. While chiropractic care is not a treatment for disease or illness, it's non-medicated approach to healthcare has its own innate life-saving benefits!
