QuackBusters – War in Wisconsin isn’t Over

by Tim Bolen

Wisconsin: Just when we thought it was safe to go back in the water…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

February 6th, 2004

Department of Regulation & Licensing (DRL) ‘quackbuster’ prosecutors Arthur Thexton, and James Polewski, in a series of actions, are openly defying new DRL policies set down by recent Governor’s appointee, new DRL head Donsia Strong Hill. In this test of wills, it will be interesting to see who wins ‘ the Governor of Wisconsin, or the ‘quackbusters.’

Congress is Writing the Wrong Prescription

by Citizens for Health

Today, strong mainstream research continues to validate the positive impact dietary supplements are having on Americans’ overall health, while lowering healthcare costs and maintaining the strongest safety record of any regulated category. But legislators out to ‘protect’ consumers are threatening to remove safe products from market shelves and fundamentally alter the regulatory structure, the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA), responsible for increasing information and access to dietary supplements.

A Message from the Former-Owner of this Website

Lately, it’s been harder than ever to feel good about the state of Alternative Health care around the world. In the U.S. and elsewhere alternatives are under attack, and health freedoms are being squeezed regularly. Many websites are being forced to close or remove products from their catalogs, and Governments are once again trying hard to bring herbal and vitamin products under the control of the pharmaceutical companies. This time they may succeed. If enough people don’t wake up and smell the Prozac, it may be too late.

FDA Bans Ephedra

Government attack on ephedra cover for aspartame poisoning

Before you knowingly eat or drink a product sweetened with aspartame, read the article below. If you still aren’t convinced of aspartame’s lethality, go to the Mission Possible website at www.dorway.com and follow your investigative senses. If you still aren’t convinced that aspartame is an FDA-approved poison, then it must be your fate to become sick and eventually succumb to a painful death after suffering from a variety of chronic illnesses. Of course, you may luck out and be spared years of ill-health by suddenly, mercifully dropping dead from aspartame in the prime of your life. Pardon the harsh comments but there is a war going on and the battle is being waged in our bodies. Good soldiers don’t eat and drink the enemies’ weapons.

Your Health Freedoms Are Being Taken Away!

600 Million Votes Demand The Right For Natural Health!

( Note from Dennis: this is an older article but it deserves to be read to get a feel for what is continuing to happen world-wide. The European Commission is still at it and is about to shut down the vitamin/herbal business throughout Europe.)

Thanks to recent worldwide participation in the Email Campaign against the planned vitamin ban by Codex Alimentarius and the European Directive on Supplements, more than 600 Million Votes were registered. This is the biggest online campaign in the history of Internet and has made the EU Supplement Directive the most controversial issue in the EU Parliament. Even though millions of online votes showed the complete opposition of the EU citizens to the directive, it has passed the EU Parliament with 139 from 629 Parliamentarians voting against it. This fight for human health is far from over. It is just beginning.

QuackBusters – A Judges View

by Judge Haley J. Fromholz

I couldn’t resist posting this article. Hopefully, the final days of Stephen Barrett and his QuackBusters are close at hand– Dennis

The legitimacy of the (so called) “National Council Against Health Fraud” (and Stephen Barrett, MD from Allentown PA) took a serious pounding in a decision rendered against the “quackbusters” on December 17, 2001 by Judge Haley J. Fromholz in California Superior Court. Excerpted from Judges decision rendered against NCAHF 12/17/01 by Judge Framholz in California Superior Court.

Minnesota 1st State to offer Freedom of Choice

by Aquarius News (Atlanta)

The US constitution grants freedom of religion and the right to carry a gun, but not freedom of choice in matters of health healing.

In light of the situation in America today, some might think the founding fathers were less than all wise or that the nation might have benefited more from the practicality of “founding mothers.” What the US constitution failed to grant as a basic right, the legislature of the state of Minnesota has recently guaranteed.
