Western healthcare is now the third leading cause of death in Britain, according to a Kent health research organisation. Tonbridge-based Credence Research, citing statistics which demonstrate that drug-dominated medicine is now the third leading killer in most industrial nations, warns that the true death toll may be far higher than even its reported figures.


Credence Research director Phillip Day states: “250,000 Americans are killed every year by Western healthcare, according to the American Medical Association. In Britain, the official figure of 40,000 is in reality far higher, if you examine the proper markers. 1 in 5 Australians will be killed every year by their doctors, through incorrect drug-prescribing, botched medical procedures, infections in hospitals and, the main killer, correct drug prescribing. This worldwide allopathic catastrophe is well known to the authorities who, in reality, are unable to do much about it within the current healthcare system, for the reasons we report.”


Credence, whose recently released publication, Health Wars, deals with this unsettling phenomenon, states: “90-95% of the diseases currently killing populations, at least in the industrial nations, are nutritional deficiency and/or toxin related conditions, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes and stroke. To understand completely why medicine continues to fail with these problems, and worse, be guilty of its own unique slaughter of the citizenry, one need look no further than the fact that doctors receive almost no formal training in nutrition. Thus, doctors are not trained to understand the underlying metabolic problems of at least 90% of diseases, which can be treated effectively, even in their late stages, or completely prevented, using simple, and unfortunately un-patentable, nutrition.”


On the toxin disease front, the medical establishment is equally dismissive and trivialises the real chemical and environmental causes, according to Credence. To illustrate why this happens, Day points out that the very industry responsible for producing and selling chemicals, which routinely kill and maim the public, also manufactures the public’s medicines. “Don’t expect the chemical industry to gain a morality on this issue overnight. It is hamstrung by stark conflicts of interest. The urgent call for reform needed to prevent further tragedy on the scale we face must come from the public itself.”


On Credence’s recently released book, Day declares: “The purpose of ‘Health Wars’ is to highlight these problems and to urge citizens to pressure their governments for immediate reform. Compounding its failures, British healthcare has ironically been brought to its knees by the crippling costs of the very drugs and treatments, which have been, and continue to be, the main instigators of these frightening death statistics. Credence has been looking at mortality. But how many citizens out there have been crippled or maimed by healthcare practices, such as vaccinations, errant drug prescribing and unnecessary surgeries? Recent reports show that the NHS must budget every year for at least £2.8 billion in compensation claims alone. That’s enough to build and fully staff 28 new hospitals every twelve months.”


Credence states that medical science has known for years that the answers to heart disease, cancer, stroke and other illnesses lie completely in nutrition and lifestyle changes, not radical surgeries, toxic drugs or radiation. To prove this point, the company cites at least 18 cultures alive today who do not apparently suffer from these health problems. “Interestingly,” Day elaborates, “we tend to call these peoples ‘primitive’ and ‘less developed’. But they know enough about nutrition to ensure that they survive in sterling health, in many cases to over 100 years of age. The authorities know this too, and do nothing. Why? Because Western healthcare today is a multi-trillion-dollar industry worldwide, and you cannot pay CEO salaries and shareholder dividends using apples, oranges and chemical-free, organic vegetation.”


Day believes that health reform is inevitable, and that the public can do much to precipitate the process by getting educated and politically active: “A proper healthcare industry must have nutritional education at its heart,” he states. “This is the most basic body science. We are what we eat. But the people will have to fight a war with their industrial and political peers first, in order to secure the return of their unalienable right to drink fresh, uncontaminated water, to eat fresh, uncontaminated food and to breathe fresh, uncontaminated air.”
