The British Medical Journal, Dr. Martin A. Makary, MD and Michael Daniel, research fellow, “Medical error—the third leading cause of death in the US”. Death rate by Medical Error in USA is 251,000 people per year by Dr. Makary’s research: http://www.bmj.com/content/353/bmj.i2139

Dr. Gary Null, PhD., “Death By Medicine”. Null’s research places the death rate at 797,926 people per year: Search Google for the book

Null says that in 1994, L.L. Leape (one of his sources) compared his figure of deaths by medical mistakes as equivalent to three jumbo jet crashes every two days, but today, Dr. Gary Null states that the figure is more equivalent to six jumbo jets falling out of the sky each day.
