(NaturalNews) Big Pharma is claiming more and more victims every year, but “the system” appears to be on autopilot, and there is little to no political will in Washington, D.C., to reverse course.
As reported by NBC News, new research shows that more Americans than ever before are overdosing on anxiety drugs, but scientists say they aren’t sure why (we have an idea – more on that here).
According to the new study, not only are more Americans taking those drugs, which include brand names like Xanax and Valium, but they taking them more of them.
Researchers also found that the quantity of prescriptions tripled between 1996 and 2013, but the number of overdoses quadrupled during the same period. The research was published in the American Journal of Public Health.
