"The War In Medicine"
Continued from previous post.The FDA Versus Freedom of Speech
"The welfare of humanity is always the alibi of tyrants."
I like these comments by Ralph Moss:
"In his classic On Liberty, John Stuart Mill wrote that
"over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is
sovereign." In 1914, Judge Cardozo ruled that "every human
being of adult years and sound mind has a right to determine
what shall be done with his own body...."
In 1987, the Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals affirmed:
"We see no reason why a patient should not be allowed to make
an informed decision to go outside currently approved medical
methods in search of an unconventional treatment." In a masterful
review, Berkeley law professor Marjorie Shultz concluded: 'patient
autonomy should be recognized and protected as a distinct legal
Thus, according to the constitution, the responsibility of the
government should be to allow the presentations of both sides
of an issue (e.g. the issue of cancer treatments) and to make
sure that everyone hears these presentations. In other words,
they should be proactively enforcing the public's right to
hear both sides of any health issue.
If the FDA and FCC were doing their constitutional job, they
would be severely persecuting the media (e.g. T.V., radio,
printed) for selling-out to Big Pharma and presenting only
one side of the cancer treatment issue!! But instead of doing
their public duty they sold out too!!! Ditto for Congress.
Ditto for every state legislature (regarding health insurance
Here is a quote from a legal journal:
"If a health claim lies in the gray area of science where
connections between health and particular nutrients are unclear,
legislation and regulation should favor the policy that the
healthcare consumer should be provided with more, rather than
less, information whenever possible, based on the theory that
the individual is the appropriate determiner of his or her own best
interest [which requires good information from both sides of
the fence]. This theory is consistent with the model of
communication in traditional medicine, fully inform the patient
of all possible benefits, risks and uncertainties and then leave
the final choice to him whenever possible."
