Third Leading Cause of Death in the US

Dr. Peter Glidden talks about the third leading cause of death in the United States. Can you guess what it is.

On a personal note, in 1980 my mother suffered a severe stroke.  She lost total use of her right arm.  She learned to walk with a walker by moving her hip because she lost most function in her right leg.  She lost her ability to speak and to read and write.

She was 63 years old (a year older than I am now).  Never smoked, was never overweight, walked over two miles every day.  She developed diarrhea that persisted.  Possibly from the water or bird droppings on the berries and garden vegetables, who knows.

She went to a doctor who gave medicine that didn’t work, so got different medicine.  She’d been on it a few weeks when she had the stroke.  Coincidence?  If she had been shot in the head there would have been an investigation.  The results would have been the same.  After the stroke she was healthy but disabled.  She died 22 years later, a horrible quality of life.

  1. Regarding my mother, I read about the Hyperbaric treatment some time afterwards and called the author of the article, and he indicated that by that time it was too late for it to be of help.

  2. Hi. I am impressed by your knowledge. You believe in natural means to restore health. Our medical system is the 3rd leading cause of death in the USA. According to the book, Death by modern medicine 784,000 die because of medical mistakes. I have worked with cancer /MS patients using the Hippocrates institutes methods. They are credited with being the one place on earth where more people are cured of serious disease than any other place. Hippocrates is based in west palm beach Florida. Have you ever heard of them??? Hippocratesinst.org. About your mother. Did she try Hyperbaric oxygen therapy?
