Legal Issues in NC

NC Threatens Local Blogger with Jail Time for Speaking His Mind on Nutrition!

Health Freedoms
This is why we need to stay on top of our Natural Health freedoms! You would think an individual could have personal opinions and talk about information that they have uncovered that helped them with a personal issue. Basically saying, "Look, this worked for me!" Well, apparently not if it crosses those in "power." State Threatens to Shut Down Nutrition Blogger "The North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition is threatening to send a blogger to jail for recounting publicly his battle against diabetes and encouraging others to follow his lifestyle. Chapter 90, Article 25 of the North Carolina General Statutes makes it a misdemeanor to 'practice dietetics or nutrition' without a license. According to the law, 'practicing' nutrition includes 'assessing the nutritional needs of individuals and groups' and 'providing nutrition counseling.'…

Walnuts as Drugs? The FDA is Crazy!

Health Freedoms, Natural Health
Studies show that plain, old walnuts help prevent breast cancer and prostate cancer, but the FDA says that if it prevents disease it must be a drug. How crazy is that?! This Popular Nut Slashed Breast Cancer Risk in Mice by 50% The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sent a warning letter to Diamond Food for making truthful, science-backed health claims about the omega-3 fats in walnuts. Because the research cited health claims that omega-3 fats in walnuts may prevent or protect against disease, the FDA said walnuts would be considered “new drugs” and as such would require a new drug application to become FDA-approved. Under current FDA law, if a food or natural supplement makes a medical claim, it's automatically classified as a drug. Regulations currently prohibit manufacturers…

The Effort to Stop the Use of Supplements by “Big Pharma”

Health Freedoms
There are forces at work trying to take away your right to use vitamins and herbs. Think about it. Anything that "completes" with the drug industry is a direct competitor of that industry... it makes financial sense for them to "take out" the competition! Dietary supplements are fast becoming an endangered species "(NaturalNews) First the powers that be create a problem to get a reaction that gives them the green light to produce a solution to satisfy their ulterior motives. The problem, whether true or not, is presented through the media to also condition the public for accepting their desired solution. A perfect example of this strategy has occurred as a backdrop for accepting the elimination of vitamins and supplements, which may occur sooner than you think. The messages put…

An Example: Why Government Control of Health Issues Is a Recipe for Failure

Health Freedoms
You know that I am all about personal freedom when it comes to healthcare. I stand for YOU being able to determine what is best for YOUR personal health. When a government (any government) steps in and says that they know best, it is always going to end badly! Governmental dictates are subject to lobbyists, and other political pressures, that usually mean that whatever they end up saying makes NO sense. Here's a PERFECT example from the European Union (EU.) They have determined that, legally, water can no longer be considered a "cure" for dehydration! Say what?!? EU SAYS WATER IS NOT HEALTHY "THE EU was ridiculed last night after it took three years to issue a new rule that water cannot be sold as healthy. In a scarcely believable…

US Government Attacks Organic Farmers in Nevada

Health Freedoms
What could possibly be wrong wrong with farm-fresh, organic, direct from nature food? Well, obviously, the 'Big Food' lobbies have apparently convinced "Big Brother" (otherwise known as the US government) to support the food industry by helping destroy local, organic farms! This is ridiculous! Health department tyrants raid local 'farm to fork' picnic dinner, orders all food to be destroyed with bleach "(NaturalNews) It is the latest case of extreme government food tyranny, and one that is sure to have you reeling in anger and disgust. Health department officials recently conducted a raid of Quail Hollow Farm, an organic community supported agriculture (CSA) farm in southern Nevada, during its special 'farm to fork' picnic dinner put on for guests -- and the agent who arrived on the scene ordered that…

The FDA is About to Remove Your Right to Buy Vitamins and Herbs

Health Freedoms
Yes, that is no exaggeration. Check out the text of this proposed regulation: Dietary Supplements - FDA Draft Regulation You have until September 30th to protest this regulation. Remember, a regulation is forced on us by the government, it is not enacted by Congress, such as a law. No one is truly accountable. It simply is. Unless we bring attention to it and protest this usurping of our individual right to take anything we see fit to use to protect our personal health. From Natural News - Things that will be regulated out of existence "It is very clear that the FDA is intending to regulate and ultimately destroy the entire CAM industry (Complementary and Alternative Medicine). Based on the explanations in the FDA's own document, the following things are…

Vitamin C As An Example – If We Don’t Protect Our Health Freedoms, We Can Lose Them!

Health Freedoms
Do you take vitamins and supplements? It has been known for some time that foods in our society have unfortunately lost a lot of their nutritional value. Thus, some have turned to supplementing their nutrition with vitamins and supplements. We don't think a thing about it. We just walk into a health food store, pick out a supplement and check out at the register and go about our way. We read and study, and find out what is best for our lifestyle. It is our choice. We can supplement our diet if we want. But, forces are amassing that are trying to put a stop to this personal choice in diet and nutrition! For instance, in Canada, there is pending legislation that would take away this right, and make supplementation…

Will YOU Be Able to Avoid Mutant Milk and Meat?

Health Freedoms
If you choose not to eat cloned meat, or drink cloned milk... as a personal decision... will you be able to tell the difference? Will the government prevent marking these "Franken-Foods" so that we can avoid them? It looks like it! Cloned Livestock Poised To Receive FDA Clearance "Get ready for a food fight over milk and meat from cloned animals and their offspring. After more than six years of wrestling with the question of whether meat and milk from them are safe to eat, the Food and Drug Administration is expected to declare as early as next week that they are. The FDA had asked producers of cloned livestock not to sell food products from such animals pending its ruling on their safety. It isn't clear whether the FDA…
