Aspirin and painkiller drugs cause widespread stomach ulcers

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

A reported 40,000 people die each year from the use of over-the-counter painkillers like aspirin. This statistic goes largely unreported, of course, since it's not something the pharmaceutical industry wants people to know about.

Think about it: each year, almost as many Americans die from OTC painkillers and NSAIDs as died in the Vietnam War. If an herb killed even 1% that many people, the FDA would ban it in an instant, and newspapers around the country would blare headlines about the dangers of the herb. But when it's aspirin, there's just silence.

Sadly, most people have been brainwashed into thinking aspirin is actually good for you: an aspirin a day should be taken by everyone with heart disease, right? That's the propaganda. But in reality, you don't need aspirin at all. What you need is to stop eating hydrogenated oils, stay away from cow's milk, stop eating red meat, and start supplementing your diet with superfoods like chlorella.

Tens of thousands of people are dying each year from aspirin and other painkiller drugs. NSAIDs do far more harm than good.
