The FDA Has Blood on its Hands … again.

Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) says, “enough is enough,”
to the Big Pharma Bullies running the FDA. He has introduced
bill H.R. 2117 (the Health Freedom Protection Act) into the
House of Representatives, which would effectively stop the
FDA from censoring truthful claims about the health benefits
of dietary supplements.

He wants to put an end to the federal bureaucrats’ meddling
with your right to choose healthy alternatives over harmful
and deadly patent drugs, and believes Americans should not
be prevented form learning about simple ways to improve
their health.

This bill puts the burden of proof on the FDA/FTC when it
comes to proving that a label or advertisement is false and
misleading. As it stands now, the manufacturer has to satisfy
an unobtainable standard of proof—as was the case with the
American cherry growers a few years ago. The FDA went on a
witch-hunt after the growers used evidence from studies
funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, to state that
cherries have anti-inflammatory properties.

The FDA ruled that the cherry growers could not use that
evidence to make these claims. Instead, the FDA approved
another dangerous anti-inflammatory drug that went on to
take the lives of some 20,000 Americans … Clearly, the FDA
does not object to the spilling of blood in the course of
maintaining the pharmaceutical status quo.

Big Pharma has the FDA firmly in pocket, and censoring vital
information—like the fact that eating 20 cherries has the same
effect as popping aspirin or a Cox-2 inhibiting drug—is their
only way to stay in business! Perhaps bill H.R. 2117 can get
enough traction to stick if enough of us stand firmly behind it,
pushing at the rear.

Dr. Mercola’s Comment:

The multi-national drug cartel has cleverly manipulated and
controlled the FDA to maximally benefit their bottom line
while virtually ignoring the safety of the American public.

Over 80 percent of the FDA’s resources are geared toward
the approval of new drugs, and only 20 percent for all the
rest. Only 5 percent goes to drug safety.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, any company that sells
supplements, including yours truly, is handcuffed from telling
you the truth about supplements because it would make a
claim that the FDA did not approve.

Ostensibly this is to “protect” the public, but the reality is that
it protects the bottom line of the drug companies and prevents
the public from having access to information that could save
their lives.

Gary Null has done an excellent job on researching just how
extensive this deception is. His book, Death By Medicine,
shows how over 2,000 people die every day in the United
States from this fatally flawed model.

Fortunately, there is ONE politician who is seeking to put an
end to the nonsense.

U.S. presidential candidate, congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas)
says, “enough is enough,” to the Big Pharma Bullies running
the FDA. He wants to put an end to the federal bureaucrats’
meddling with your right to choose healthy alternatives over
harmful and deadly patent drugs, and believes Americans
should not be prevented from learning about simple ways to
improve their health.

At the same time the FDA went on a witch-hunt against cherry
growers for citing evidence that cherries have anti-
inflammatory properties, the FDA approved dangerous anti-
inflammatory drugs that went on to take the lives of some
20,000 Americans … Clearly, the FDA does not object to the
spilling of blood in the course of maintaining the
pharmaceutical status quo.

Big Pharma has the FDA firmly in pocket, and censoring vital
information — like the fact that eating 20 cherries has the same
effect as popping aspirin or a Cox-2 inhibiting drug — is their
only way to stay in business! Perhaps bill H.R. 2117 can get
enough traction to stick if enough of us stand firmly behind it,
pushing at the rear.

Could we finally get everyone healthy and off of all these expensive
prescription drugs? Or will Ron Paul end up dead?

I see visions of the Tucker – don’t you? You gotta shake your head in bewilderment.

I can talk about it. I don’t sell any drugs or supplements.
