In some states women are dying at an alarming rate.
States with the HIGHEST increase in female deaths are in the South. LOWEST rates are in the Northeast, the Upper Midwest, and states with high concentrations of Hispanics and college graduates.
How much does the increase in women's death have to do with medications? More medications are prescribed to women; drugs that are later found deadly and even unnecessary. When men are ill they get tested to determine illness, women are given drugs for mood disorders.
New medications can be a blessing, enhance life, cure disease, help with pain, but deregulations increasing mortality, and would it make a difference if doctors were also held responsible for drugs they prescribe not just pharmaceutical companies for bad drugs?
