Re: add up the deaths

> Let me try to help you here. The deaths from these drugs can be compiled. This is because a pathologist can determine what caused the death.

Yes, exactly, death certificates are the source of the data I am looking at from CDC.

> Let us look at Remeron. Remeron can cause agranulocytosis which can cause death. The pathologist rules out other cause if there is Remeron in the deceased person's blood.
Then the death is recorded as being caused by Remeron and these records are available.

That seems really questionable. If something has multiple potential causes, the presence of one cause doesn't rule out the possibility of other causes.

> Let us look at these records.

NOw you see there are numbers that can be added to a data base of other deaths caused by these drugs.

Huh? There are no death numbers on that page. It's one of those automatically generated health websites that clutter up your search results. They take openly available databases with statistics on health conditions and medications, and vaguely imply there's a causal relationship. Note the titles "could Drug X cause Condition Y"? They are showing correlation, which is not sufficient to establish cause.

> Then all the deaths can be known as to be caused by the drug and the number 40000 can be generally accepted

No, I don't think so. 40,000 is still too high. I will summarize in another post.
