116 Million Americans are suffering from chronic pain.
(PRWEB) January 31, 2012
The first printing of the USA Health Journal publication includes recent information on a variety of chronic pain types, with a particular focus on The Institute of Medicine Report’s disclosure that 116 million Americans are suffering from chronic pain.
Additionally, the USA Health Journal includes, not often discussed, data on the hidden dangers to Americans from using synthetic painkillers including NSAIDs, Opioids and Acetaminophen. There are supporting references to important studies and reports on the risks associated with synthetic painkillers from the FDA, Wall Street Journal, the American Journal of Medicine, The New England Journal of Medicine and The Association for an Aging Society.
“We are glad to contribute to the USA Health Journal’s efforts because we believe everyone wins when there is constructive dialog about the dangers associated with the synthetic painkillers; which are being used to treat chronic pain that affects more than one third of the American population and ultimately causes as many American deaths, each year, as breast cancer.” stated PainKillerAwareness.org Co-Founder Jon Flatt.
