Why The Law Forbids The Medicinal Use of Natural Substances

According to the FDA’s legal definition, a drug is anything that “diagnoses, cures, mitigates, treats, or prevents a disease.”

The problem with this definition is that there are numerous substances, as readily available and benign as found on our spice racks, which have been proven by countless millennia of human experience to mitigate, prevent and in some cases cure disease, and which cannot be called drugs according to the FDA.

How can this be? Well, the FDA has assumed for itself Godlike power, requiring that its official approval be obtained before any substance can legally be used in the prevention and treatment of disease.

The FDA’s legal-regulatory control therefore is totalitarian and Napoleonic in construct; what it does not explicitly permit as a medicine is implicitly forbidden.

Historically the FDA has required new drugs undergo expensive and elaborate multi-phased clinical trials, which are out of the grasp of any ordinary interest who might want to demonstrate the efficacy of a non-patentable (and therefore unprofitable) herb, food or spice.

The average out-of-pocket cost for obtaining a new drug approval is US$ 802 million dollars, and therefore an investor putting capital into bringing to market a substance that does not lend itself to market exclusivity and therefore cannot produce a return on investment, is committing economic suicide, if not also breaking the law. The investor actually has a legally-binding fiduciary responsibility to its shareholders to make a profit. And therefore, capital will not flow into any would-be commodity that can be produced or obtained with ease, including most things that grow freely on this Earth.

It is an interesting footnote in history that shortly after the Declaration of Independence, Congress declared that natural substances, e.g. water or salt, were God’s gift to mankind and that therefore products of nature should be limited in their patent protection. While this was a noble declaration, it has actually been used against those whose rights it would protect. It has forced private interests to synthetically alter natural substances — for instance the burgeoning biotech field of recombinant DNA technology, i.e. genetically modified organisms (GMOs) — for the sole reason that it guarantees them ownership/patent rights.

In fact, a medical system that legally requires it make a profit threatens to destroy and/or incriminate itself if non-patented, non-profitable natural substances or therapies are employed. It also results in so much collateral damage to those it purports to serve that it could rightly be called a modern form of human sacrifice.

FDA says fresh milk is dangerous, but chemical BPA is perfectly safe!

The FDA, the organization that conspired with California bureaucrats to attack raw milk distribution centers over the past two years, has just announced it will not ban BPA. The FDA says there isn’t enough evidence of BPA being harmful to humans (that’s a lie) and therefore it cannot be justifiably banned.


The real story here, however, is that the FDA routinely allows toxic and evendeadlychemicals to remain legal in the food supply while working to ban dietary supplements and nutritional support products that are actually good for you. The FDA, for example, hasn’t outlawed aspartame, MSG, sodium nitrite, partially-hydrogenated oils, high-fructose corn syrup or even petroleum-derived artificial colors. Instead, it focuses its regulatory power on outlawing Chinese Medicine herbs, nutritional supplements and natural sweeteners. For example, it was only recently that the herbal sweetener stevia was even tolerated by the FDA. For decades before that, the FDA would seize all imports of the herb and even order distributors to burn their recipe books containing stevia recipes. (www.naturalnews.com/stevia.html)

The FDA positions synthetic chemicals as if they were nutrients

Meanwhile,the FDA has never met an industry-sponsored toxic chemical it didn’t like. Whether it’s BPA, or sodium benzoate, or fluoride, if Big Pharma or the chemical industry is behind it, the FDA magically and consistently declares the chemical to be good for you!

That happens, of course, because the FDA is a gang of back-stabbing criminals who betray the American people at every opportunity while “approving” deadly pharmaceuticals, vaccines and chemical food additives for mass consumption.

BPA, for the record, has been linked to cancers and hormone disruptions, and this happens at ridiculously low levels of contamination (parts per billion). But the FDA looks at this and thinks, “This could be HUGE for the pharmaceutical business!” The more people are sickened by BPA, in other words, the more people eventually buy high-profit prescription drugs to treat the symptoms brought on from the consumption of BPA. It’s all about the continuity of profits for the FDA’s buddies at Big Pharma.

Follow the money: $8 billion in BPA revenues

There may be yet another angle on this entire story: Anthony Gucciardi from Natural Society is reporting that BPA producers are rolling in a whopping $8 billion in sales on this chemical:

“Producers of toxic BPA are now boasting $8 billion in sales for 2012 thanks to the FDA rejecting a potential ban on the cancer-linked chemical on March 30th. According to GlobalData, manufacturers will produce 4.7 million metric tons of BPA this year to be dispersed into the daily lives of millions worldwide. BPA now goes into everything: plastic bottles, canned foods, DVDs, plastic wrap, and much more.”(http://naturalsociety.com/bpa-makers-to-gross-8-billion-thanks-to-fda…)

The FDA, of course, has a long history of protecting the profits of the chemical industry rather than protecting the health interests of the people. So no one who understands the true nature of the FDA — a corrupt gang of corporate sellouts — is surprised by this decision. It’s yet another piece of evidence adding to the mountain of proof that the FDA is a clear and present danger to the health and safety of the American people.
