(Small Government Times) Medications approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration result in 100,000 deaths every year from what the federal agency describes as "Adverse Drug Reactions", or ADRs. Worse, over 2 million Americans suffer non-deadly adverse reactions to drugs every year that the FDA has approved "safe".
ADRs refer to negative reactions that Americans suffer from taking drugs as directed by their doctor or the drug's manufacturer. These cases DO NOT include overdoses or drug abuse.
