New Study Shows Doubled Risk Of Death With Sleeping Pill Use
We have been preaching the dangers of sleeping pills for years – long enough now that many readers probably just “tune out” our warnings – “Oh no, it’s just Dr. Myatt or Nurse Mark ranting about sleeping pills again – won’t they ever leave it alone?”
No, we won’t leave it alone – we feel that these drugs are some of the most dangerous, addictive, deadly poisons that have ever been pushed on people by our legalized drug pushers, the big pharmaceutical companies.
I’m not going to bore or annoy you by repeating everything we’ve written before – those of you who want to refresh your memory can do so with our previous articles:
I will, however, share with you a very brief quote from a study published in the British Medical Journal in March 2014 regarding sleeping pills:
In patients who were prescribed these drugs, there was an estimated overall statistically significant doubling of the hazard of death
Any questions? A doubling of death risk sounds very “statistically significant” to me…
Freebies – From Dr. Myatt ?!?
In recent HealthBeat articles we’ve discussed using natural supplements to reduce stress and promote sleep: Kavinace, Cortisol Manager, and Lavela.
Now there really isn’t any excuse left for you to not try something different from the dangerous sleeping pills that Big Pharma pushes.
