Medicine Kills Humans more than Terrorism 

The pharma industry or the modern medical doctors would never accept and perhaps will remain in denial mode but Yes! Medicine Kills more humans than terrorism ( and except Covid-19 of course)  and it is because of medicines's Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR). An ADR is an injury or pharmacologic effects that occur when a medicine is administered and cause injury even death. The ADR maybe sudden or developed overtime.

According to the US Food & Drug Administration Website, a public citizen health group ADR is one of the leading cause of deaths in US. The report also says that - in the US more than 2.2 Mn people a year (6000 patients per day) suffer ADRs and require hospitalization. "If true, then ADRs are the 4th leading cause of death -- ahead of pulmonary disease, diabetes, AIDS, pneumonia, accidents, and automobile deaths.", read the website page.

In India, however no official data is known.

According to WHO Report, in some countries ADR related costs such as hospitalisation, surgery has lost productivity which has exceed the cost of the medicines itself that cause the ADRs.  

Sugar NOT FAT is the cause of Heart/ Cardiac Diseases

Capitalism aka greed for money has been hiding the truth for 40 years that it is the SUGAR and not Fat (except animal fat) that result into ill-health of your heart or Cardiac diseases. Historical analysis shows a substantial proof that sugar industry manipulated nutritional science with "Faux Science" in order to save sugar from an accusation and shift the blame to saturated fat instead.

According to The New York Times:

The documents show that a trade group called the Sugar Research Foundation, known today as the Sugar Association, Paid three Harward scientists the equivalent of about $50,000 in today's dollars to publish a 1967 review of research on sugar, fat and Heart disease.

Some of the studies giving sugar a clean-chit has been backed by sugar industry itself. For example, one recent paper came to the unbelievable and highly unlikely conclusion that eating candy may help prevent weight gain, as children who eat candy tend to weigh less than those who don't.

Its The Brain and Not Medicine, that Actually Works 

Medicine, when enters the body, it signals the brain which chemical to secrete though its a different thing altogether that if medicine signaled right information to the braing or not. So, its the brain that ultimately release the "Cure Chemical" to the affected organ of a living being.

Lets take an example for a pain caused by whatever reasons such as disease, accident among others. When cells in your body become injured or damaged, they release a chemical called Prostaglandin. Your body's nerve endings are very sensitive to Prostaglandin. When they sense a release of prostaglandin, your nerve endings transmit a message through the nervous system to your brain, telling it where and how much an area of the body hurts. Pain relievers work — all throughout the body — by preventing injured cells from releasing prostaglandin.

When cells stop releasing prostaglandin, the nervous system stops sending pain messages to the brain. When the brain stops receiving pain messages, you stop feeling pain.

But pain isn't always bad, even if it doesn't feel very good. Pain is your body's way of warning you that something is wrong so you can fix it.

If you didn't feel pain, you might not realize that there was a problem, and it could get much worse before you could notice it on your own.
