Can you guess how many Americans take prescription drugs? Did you guess one in 20 or maybe one in 10? Or did you possibly guess as many as one out of every five Americans? If you guessed any of those you would be wrong. A new report published by the CDC shows nearly half of all Americans are taking chemical medicine for their ailments. That means over 150 million Americans have experimental, unproven chemical drugs swimming in their bloodstream right now, adding to the health chaos that comes mainly from consuming chemicals.
