American Iatrogenic Association
The American Iatrogenic Association is devoted to the study and reporting of illness caused by the medical profession, especially by physicians. Despite the rare public discussion of iatrogenic illness, it is a significant cause of disease and death for Americans. To illustrate just how important iatrogenic illness has become, Time magazine has reported one estimate that 80,000 people are killed annually by doctors and medical treatments. That is about twice the number of Americans killed each year in car accidents.
