That would make these medical mistakes the third leading cause of death in the United States. That would place medical errors right behind heart disease and cancer.

A recent study investigated the lives of 89,000 people living on the Seychelles islands in the Indian Ocean. The people there consume fish 10 times the amount of populations in Europe and the US.
