Recent CDC Study Triggers Interest in Dr. Marcum’s "Medicines That Kill"

Many are unaware of the risks associated with prescription medications.


Chattanooga, TN, USA- The July 2013 release by the Centers for Disease Control stating that deaths from prescription overdose in woman has risen 400% has sparked tremendous interest in Dr. Marcum’s book, “Medicines That Kill” released by Tyndale Publishing earlier this year.

People are interested in the potential dangers of the billions and billions of medications prescribed each year based on search trends. The Centers for Disease Control reports that 6,600 women died nationwide in 2010 while taking prescription medications, an increase of more than 400 percent. The report says since 2007 more women have died from overdoses than in motor vehicle accidents. Dr. Marcum, in his new book, “Medicines That Kill” argues that medications are a much larger problem and the number one cause of death in America.

“Overdoses from medications are one of many ways medications are killing,” states Dr. Marcum, a board certified cardiologist and founder of Heartwise Ministries.
“This is the tip of an iceberg.  The Titanic is coming.”

Marcum, who recently published a post titled 70% is a Failing Grade details more of the ways medications are killing including the overdoses cited in the CDC report. Most do not realize the risk of medications. The American Heart Association and American Cancer society are important in providing information to the public. The Society for the Responsible Use of Medications is needed based on this new report and Dr. Marcum’s data. Lives are at stake.
