The FDA protects corporate interests, not consumers. The agency pretends they are on the side of free trade, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Instead, they are on the side of regulations and special interests, all for the protection of certain multi-national corporations.

That's the message behind this short video you must watch, We Become Silent: The Last Days of Health Freedom.


 

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

The betrayal of democracy began when profit replaced the will of the people and corporate lobbyists became the masters of the universe. If it is true that our lives begin to end the moment we become silent about things that matter, then freedom in this country has already begun to atrophy because of our inaction.

The pursuit of happiness and the promise of personal choice are eventually chipped away by complacency. If we exercise our choices just as the forces of power and money have done, you CAN make a difference.

On the other hand, should we stay silent, governments will be free to replace the teachings of truth with their toxic lies.

Remember you get the government you deserve -- including all the institutional hypocrisy and bias endemic to the FDA -- if you don't stand up and be counted. If everyone does their fair share, however, the good guys will eventually prevail.

On Vital Votes, biochemist Russ Bianchi from Soquel, California warns:

"As loathsome and corrupt as FDA is, I equally caution all consumers to make sure they are not also being bamboozled with wonderful sounding labels among some, not all, nutritional and dietary supplement products, as well as more that a few natural health food & organic labels, as Dr. Mercola has pointed out.

"There remains many hyped, deceptive, fanciful & semantically lovely sounding ingredients out there, on some product lines, that are as dangerous, fraudulent & toxic to human health, as the bait & switch of recalled Big Pharma drugs."
