Big blow for big pharma's war against vitamins

In a newsletter from What Doctors Don't Tell You - (Lynn McTaggart's newsletter) this great snippet came through.. finally a court sees sense and creates a ruling that is of value to the natural health movement.

A US district court has overturned a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) bar on a manufacturer of selenium supplements from stating that the mineral helps reduce the risk of cancer. District Court Judge Ellen Huvelle upheld complaints from the Alliance for Natural Health USA and others that the FDA ban went against the First Amendment that allows free speech. She said there was credible scientific evidence to demonstrate that selenium helps protect against cancer, and so the manufacturer should be allowed to include the fact in promoting the product.

Its also of note to see that the Alliance for Natural health was the instigaator of this complaint and that their work has been upheld.

It is also of interest to note that this Alliance has has their page deleted from Wikipedia! The 'watchdogs' are at it all over the place. It is amazing that they have the time and energy to hit the natural health industry at all levels - and for what investment? I once posted a very intersting article to Wikipedia about EAV (electro-acupuncture according to Voll) with absolutely no advertising in it at all which was almost immediately deleted from the site with the comment that it was advertising!

However don't let any of this action put us off continuing to put our hands up for health freedoms and freedom of speech and information generally. These rights are so important for us. Keep standing up for them in whatever way you find possible.
