"The War In Medicine"
Continued from previous post.The FDA Versus Freedom of Speech
As if this were not enough, Big Brother wants to ban labels on nutritional products
that notify people of published scientific experiments, the knowledge of which may
save their life!
In other words, allow a label on a product that kills you, but ban a label on a product
that may save your life. Sounds like profitable logic of the FDA.

Furthermore, chemotherapy drugs, before they are approved, should be proven to
