Tragedy fact check: 165 times as many people were killed today by the U.S. medical system than died in the Umpqua Community College shooting

Umpqua Community College

(NaturalNews) While all unnecessary deaths are a tragedy, the mainstream media is predictably leaping on the campus shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, falsely portraying America as an out-of-control shooting gallery where no one is safe as long as guns are legal.

SHOOTER TAKEN OUT BY MEN WITH GUNS: Reportedly, 13 people have been killed in the campus shooting. Those deaths are tragic, to be clear, but many of them could have been directly prevented if Oregon allowed 21-year-olds who pass a background check and criminal history check to carry concealed firearms on campus... as has just been legalized across Texas. The Sheriff of Roseburg, Oregon, in fact, has just confirmed that the shooter was killed by men with guns, proving yet again that "good guys" with guns are capable of stopping "bad guys" with guns. (Concealed carry means "first responders" are citizens who are already on the scene when the shooting starts, ready to defend life and halt the active shooter.)

Umpqua Community College was specifically chosen by the shooter because it is a "gun-free" zone where no one is likely to shoot back, said former US Marshal Art Roderick. “[The gunman] probably knew that the facility was a gun free facility, [which is] an easy target for these kinds of coward individuals. They know they’re not going to get any response unless they happen to run into security or a campus police officer.”

Even more importantly, what the media isn't telling you is that 165 times as many people will be killed today by the U.S. medical system than the number who died at Umpqua. Over 2,100 people will be killed today by medication side effects, incompetent doctors, botched surgeries, medical mistakes, chemotherapy treatments and other similar causes. Over the course of a year, a whopping 784,000 Americans will be killed by the medical system.

What I find shameful in the media's coverage of all this is how mainstream reporters are saying we should all be scared to go to malls, movie theaters and classrooms because of firearms. Yet there isn't a single journalist in the media saying the far more statistically accurate statement that we should be more afraid to go to a hospital, doctor's office or cancer clinic because those are the locations where fatalities are far more likely to victimize us.

You are far more likely to be killed by a doctor than an active shooter

Despite today's shooting, the odds of being killed on a college campus today are exceedingly remote. Yet the odds of being killed in a hospital -- infected with a superbug, killed by surgery gone wrong, or killed with deadly medications that cause heart attacks -- are orders of magnitude higher.

None of this means, of course, that the tragic deaths at the Umpqua Community College don't matter. Of course they matter. Every life matters, and no person deserves to have their life cut short by violence. Those victims of Umpqua deserve our prayers and heartfelt efforts to prevent future deaths from happening. Yet the 2,100 victims of the U.S. medical system receive no prayers, no media coverage and no acknowledgement at all. It's almost as if 13 people somehow matter more than 2,100 people simply because of the manner in which they were tragically killed. If you are killed by a pharmaceutical drug, your death doesn't matter, it seems. But if you're killed by a bullet, then your death is practically celebrated by the national media which can't wait to stand on top of your dead body and start screaming, "Gun control!" (Piers Morgan, anyone?) (Follow breaking news on gun control at FETCH.news.)

My question to the nation is simply this: Why isn't ALL life worth protecting?

Many forms of "silent violence" are killing millions every year

If we are to be honest with ourselves, there are all sorts of forms of violence in society today, and most of them take their victims silently, with no media coverage, no speeches from politicians and no awareness at all among the population.

These forms of "silent violence" include:

Medical violence: The forced chemotherapy of teenagers who are kidnapped from their parents and injected with deadly chemicals at gunpoint.

Vaccine violence: The forced injection of children with toxic vaccines laced with aluminum, MSG, mercury, formaldehyde and other toxic chemicals (that cause autism or worse).

Chemical violence: The spraying of food crops with cancer-causing glyphosate, an herbicide chemical that's heavily used alongside genetically modified crops.

• Abortion violence: Children are born alive, then murdered by Planned Parenthood to harvest their organs for sale to biotech companies. This has been documented and proven through a series of covert videos filmed by the Center for Medical Progress. See Abortions.news for real-time news headlines on abortion.

Psychiatric drug violence: The poisoning of brains with psychiatric drugs which alters their behavior and perceptions. In fact, most school shootings in history have been carried out by people on psychiatric drugs. See www.PsychDrugShooters.com for details.

Government violence: Government is engaged in widespread violence against individuals in the form of police state tactics, armed raids on wrong houses, police violence against citizens and so on.

All life is sacred and worth protecting

Join me as the editor of Natural News in saying that all forms of violence are wrong. All life is sacred.

We live in a nation that excuses violence against children in the form of partial birth abortions and organ harvesting of those babies.

We live in a nation that tolerates chemical violence against the population by agricultural companies like Monsanto, causing an untold number of cancer cases each year.

We live in a nation that tolerates medical violence against children in the form of forced vaccinations and gunpoint chemotherapy (medical kidnapping).

We live in a nation that openly condones psychiatric violence against teens, targeting young males for mind-altering drugs that often lead to mass shootings.

We live in a nation that tolerates global military imperialism, the bombing of innocent nations and the military occupation of over 150 nations around the world, threatening violence everywhere.

We live in a nation with a twisted, warped broadcast media that celebrates violence on Netflix, HBO and Hollywood movies, glorifying mass shootings and a culture of drug use and sexual depravity.

With all this under way, why is anyone surprised when a 20-year-old college student snaps and goes on a murder rampage? The sheeple of society are programmed by violence from the day they're born. Yet in our twisted, dumbed-down society, the only thing mindless people can think to blame is firearms. That's not just silly; it's incredibly naive.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com.
