BigPharma Killed Jeff Conaway

Jeff Conaway, died at age 60. He was an actor who played in the Broadway version of and also the movie version of “Grease” and had a long stint in the 70’s and early 80’s in “Taxi”. He was recently on “Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew,” where he was confronting his sobriety, and overuse of pharmaceutical drugs. He died today May 27 at a hospital in Encino, California from complications from pneumonia according to the Washington Post and news reports. The Washington Post quoted his sister Carla Shreve as saying, He was taken off life support after arriving unconscious at Encino Hospital Medical Center on May 10, the result of “just too many prescribed drugs,” said his sister Carla Shreve. He had been in a medically induced coma.
He did have issues with recreational drugs since high school and alcohol, so reports indicate he had an addictive personality. This is something his doctor and the pharmaceutical companies should be held accountable for. He died from too many pharmaceutical drugs. It is consistent with how pharmaceutical company’s, psychiatrists and doctors operate. If one drug doesn’t work then they prescribe another until the drugs consume you.
Trusting your doctor is a thing of the past. There is too much money to be made prescribing drugs to truly care for the patient.
