neoplasms cause over half of all deaths of
people over 45. Accidents and adverse effects resulting from the
accidents is the leading cause of death for people under 45 to 1 year of
age. Of all the causes of death due to accidents, the leading cause is
motor vehicle accidents. Motor vehicle accidents remain a high risk for
all age groups.

thought and more than the Center for Disease Control tabulation of
deaths from secondhand smoke.
A new report doubles the current estimate of deaths due to preventable medical
errors—to 195,000—and concludes that IT would not address the causes of
the deaths. The oft-cited figure of 98,000 deaths per year comes from a
report by the Institute of Medicine published in 1999. The newer report
uses a collection of PSIs (patient safety indicators) recently developed
by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to screen hospital
administrative data for incidents that should elicit concern for patient

Modern Health Care System is the Leading Cause of Death
Doctors are in fact the LEADING cause of death in this country. Not heart disease, not cancer--doctors. In all fairness, doctors themselves are not to blame for all of this. The entire modern health care system, however, is to blame for allowing, even promoting, so many unnecessary procedures, drugs and mishaps. This illustrates precisely why the system is so desperately in need of change, and why facilitating this change is, and will continue to be the mission of the Advanced Scientific Health Research Team.
Unintentional injury is responsible for more years of potential life lost before the age of 65 than cancer and heart disease combined (National Center for Health Statistics 2004). Motor vehicle crashes are the single largest cause of unintentional injury for ages 1 to 65, accounting for a total of 42,643 deaths in 2003 when motor vehicle fatalities killed 14.66 out of every 100,000 Americans (NHTSA 2005). Societal costs associated with these crashes include lost wages, medical expenses, insurance claims, production delays, property damage, and indirect costs (National Safety Council 1995). In 2000, the total economic cost of traffic fatalities was approximately $230.6 billion, including $61 billion in lost productivity, $59 billion in property damage, and $32.6 billion in travel delays (Blincoe et al. 2002).
(7) Not 1 Death or Sickness Etiologically Assigned to
Tobacco. By Dr. Simoncini, MD. All the diseases
attributed to smoking are also present in non smokers. It means, in
other words, that they are multifactorial, that is, the result of the
interaction of tens, hundreds, sometimes thousands of factors, either
known or suspected contributors - of which smoking can be one.

death? Would the person die of other causes if they didn't have this in
the first place? What are those deaths being recorded as?
(3) 1,236,931 people get Infectious Diseases a year, why isn't it (4)
the number one leading cause of death? Would the person die of other
causes if they didn't have this in the first place? What are those

3. If (6) Doctor error kills 250,000
people a year, why isn't it (4) the third leading cause of death? What
are those deaths being recorded as?
4. With Infectious Diseases
killing so many people, why is the government taxing only some of it's
citizens (those using a legal product, which tobacco is) to pay for
advertisements against one personal choice issue? Shouldn't every
citizen pay for advertisements on infectious diseases instead?

When the CDC did their infamous calculations on
tobacco mortality deaths they brought in Former Smokers estimates.
A Former Smoker being one who smoked at least 5 packs of cigarettes in
their lifetime. So if a person smoked those 5 packs while in their
twenty's, quit smoking, then died of an illness at 85 years old, the CDC
considers that a smoking related death. This of course pumped up
the tobacco death figure.
This method was embraced by the anti smoker
syndicate but now it turned on them and they were afraid of losing the
limelight and their vast amounts of government and private
funding. Perhaps the CDC didn’t foresee the repercussions of this
powerful, multi billion dollar industry which they helped
