FDA Celebrates Hundred Years of Pretense

Health is far and away a person�s most important asset. Protecting this asset from accelerated decay is no small challenge. Indeed, the cards are stacked against the individual.

There are many obstacles to health. Our land, water, and air are heavily polluted with disease-provoking toxins. Our food supply contains various adulterations in the form of neuro-toxic pesticides, preservatives, coal-tar derived coloring agents, MSG, genetically modified food (that express the Bt toxin in every cell), excessively processed food, too much sugar/corn syrup and artificial chemical sweeteners, and high-fat junk food. Big Pharma promotes and excessively pushes toxic drugs on society, in far greater excess than their true need.

It is bad enough that doctors receive no credible training in the therapeutic use of nutrition and other natural health options. Now, a new generation of tech-driven doctors has lost sight of patient-centered care, wherein the physician is the true advocate for the patient. The sun is setting on the days when a doctor spent the time to truly understand your concerns, know your history, and understand you personally. Importantly, it is patient-centered care that inspires hopefulness, which is as at least as powerful as any drug.

A juggernaut drug-dispensing machine has replaced patient-centered care. In this conveyor-belt approach, a person is little more than a box moving along an assembly line. The person�s numbers and blood are analyzed; results are processed through a cost-containment managed care system and Big Pharma dogma. Doctors are held in line by administrative/financial pressures and their licensing boards. The production line is far from perfect, injuring at least 1.5 million Americans per year and sending another 100,000 to their graves.

Health officials think the answer is to improve the production line�electronically automate all prescriptions, put radio frequency identification chips in everyone�s arm, and place a person�s DNA in an FDA owned super-computer. Lost in this equation of �improvement� is the patient, whose thoughts, feelings, and experiences are irrelevant compared to the behavior of his or her cells. This isn�t science fiction; it�s the FDA�s new plan of healthcare for the 21st century. [Read: Fight For Your Health]

In order to implement this highly controlled version of health, all competition to Big Pharma must be eliminated. Number one on the hit list is the therapeutic use of nutrition. The FDA goes out of its way to trample the First Amendment and prevent you from understanding your health options. If people understood they could employ a variety of safe and effective health options, instead of poisonous drugs, there would be little confidence in the corrupt drug-pushing cartel. Of course, healthy and free people are incredibly difficult to oppress. The sickness industry profits from keeping people sick. A warped government has discerned that a sick and de-energized population is docile and easy to manipulate.

I have sat on the front lines of applied clinical nutrition for over twenty years. My office has been a place of last hope for many individuals and I have personally helped thousands of people regain their health. I have designed numerous high-quality nutritional products that actually do something to improve health. One day I awoke to find out that not only does the FDA not want you to know about anything I have been doing for the past twenty years; they want to eliminate effective nutritional supplements from the market.

At first, this was very difficult for me to understand. I thought I was doing everything to be a good citizen of this country. My wife, Mary, and I have been happily married over twenty-five years, we have raised four healthy children, and we have built a successful business from nothing�based on twenty years of very hard work. People are extremely grateful to find a path that leads to the recovery of lost or deteriorating health. And, it was fun going to work every day knowing that what we did was meaningful and truly helpful.

Trying to understand why the FDA does not want you to know how to get well led Mary and me on a path of intense research for over six months. This resulted in my writing, Fight for Your Health: Exposing the FDA�s Betrayal of America. Working in a clinical world, I was not aware of many of the details and forces at work that had sickness of Americans as the primary agenda. I did not know the FDA wanted to define every word relating to health as a disease, so it would be impossible to describe how supplements help people improve their health. I am sure the majority of Americans and health professionals are unaware of the true tactics and plans to keep American sick.

This personal awakening has changed my focus in life. I am on a mission to communicate to you exactly what the FDA and Big Pharma do not want you to know.

As a special opportunity for readers and to help you understand the importance of keeping natural health options open to the public, I am providing a link for you to view Chapter 18 of Fight for Your Health. This chapter, The Illusion of Bone Drugs, is a classic example demonstrating misleading claims that result in major drug sales. This fraud is knowingly permitted by the FDA. At the same time, vital information that naturally helps bones is suppressed by the FDA.

I believe that knowledge is the best weapon against the forces working to keep people sick. We must preserve health options as a freedom for our people. Empowering you with knowledge is fundamental to your right to be healthy.
