Medical Errors are now the third leading cause of death in America

Johns Hopkins researchers estimate that medical error is now the third leading cause of death in America.  The numbers are shocking:

1.  Heart Disease kills 614,348 each year

2.  Cancer kills 591,699 each year

3.  Medical Errors kill 251,454 each year

Do the math.  That translates to 689 people die every day (365 days a year) due to medical negligence.  Read this Washington Post article on the study.

Don’t tell me America has the best medical system in the world.
