How to STOP the #3 Cause of Death
No one wants to think about how they’re going to die.
But if you had to list a few potential ways you could end up meeting your Maker, there’s one I could bet would NOT be on your list.
Doctors NEVER like to talk about it… but this cause of death ranks #3 in the U.S.
And the worst part is… it’s completely preventable.
Let me show you how.
Believe it or not, this leading cause of death has nothing to do with cancer, heart disease, respiratory problems, or diabetes.
In fact, it’s not a disease at all.
It’s medical errors.
That’s right, your doctor or other health professional is more likely to kill you than just about any other factor you can think of.
This was according to an analysis published in the BMJ journal back in 2016.
The researchers found that medical errors are the third-leading cause of death.
Clearly this is a major issue that should be getting more attention—but I doubt it ever will.
Doctors are too afraid of being sued for malpractice to ever talk about it.
Also, medical errors will never show up on the official rankings for causes of death.
Why? Because “medical error” is not a box that can be checked on death certificates.
Convenient oversight, don’t you think?
Even if these errors don’t put you in the morgue, they can still dramatically impact your quality of life.
And according to a more recent survey, 1 in 5 people have fallen victim to a medical mistake.
Specifically, 21% said they had personally experienced such a mistake, while 31% said they knew someone who had.
The most common reason for the errors? Miscommunication between doctor and patients.
Folks, that just shouldn’t happen—and it doesn’t have to.
Make sure you’re taking an active role in your health care by having an open dialogue with your doctor. Don’t just take things at face value.
Ask lots of questions. And don’t be afraid to say you don’t understand something.
You don’t want to be in the 1 in 5 statistic—and you certainly don’t want to end up on that 3rdleading cause of death list, either.
It’s nice to know that something as simple as better communication can make the difference.
To a brighter day,
