Shocking Dangers of Plavix Revealed in 2nd Comparison Study

Story at-a-glance -

  • Research investigating the effects of Plavix in combination with aspirin versus using aspirin alone for the prevention of stroke and cognitive decline has confirmed previous findings: The combination treatment significantly increases risk of death; doubles risk of gastrointestinal bleeding; and more than doubles fatal hemorrhaging. The anti-platelet arm of the study was terminated as a result of these increased risks to participants
  • In an ironic twist of fate, Dr. Starfield, the Johns Hopkins doctor who, over a decade ago, presented the shocking evidence in JAMA that caused me to coin the phrase “doctors are the third leading cause of death in the US,” has died from fatal brain hemorrhage following a Plavix-aspirin regimen, as prescribed by her cardiologist
  • Her research, published in 2000, documented how a staggering 225,000 Americans die from iatrogenic causes, i.e. their death is caused by a physician's activity, manner, or therapy
  • There are far simpler, virtually free strategies, without toxic side effects, that can provide the same blood thinning benefit as Plavix, including walking barefoot (known as Grounding or Earthing).
  • Only a tiny fraction of all adverse drug reactions are ever reported to the FDA. In order to truly alert the FDA to a problem with a product they've approved, they must be notified – by as many people as possible who believe they have experienced a side effect. So, any time you believe you’ve had a bad drug reaction, report it to the FDA
