FDA Raids Herbal Distributor Over Cancer Remedies

It’s no secret that the FDA is responsible for some of the most vastly detrimental products on the consumer market, but did you know that they are capable of raiding and confiscating ‘potentially harmful’ substances that only they arbitrate?

Indeed, the FDA, known benefactors of big pharma, have been succeeding in their rampage across natural health remedy stores, and they could be coming to your town next.

After an alleged complaint against the ‘Notion-n-things’ store in Missouri, the State department of Health and Senior Services managed to embargo the company’s herbal products. Only as recently as three weeks ago did the district judge sign the order for seizure of those products.

Remember, this is the same organization that has declared walnuts to be illegal drugs.

The three products now in custody of the FDA are Chickweed Healing Salve, a product based on comfrey; To-Mor-Gone, a product developed for the treatment of cancer; and R.E.P., a natural remedy for various headaches and sinus infections. The FDA’s only reasoning for seizure of the products is that they do not have properly labeled information; something that they are far too concerned with rather than for the health of the American people.

Of course, none of these products had been approved by the FDA as a safe or effective method of treatment for their prescribed usage, and as such are considered unapproved – and illegal – drugs. The FDA has not yet conducted a formal review of any of these products in order to determine if they actually work or not; either way, the administration describes them as ‘misbranded’ and ‘false’ products.

The FDA, spoken for by Dara Corrigan, admitted that the administrations’ concerns with these three products, and many others like them, is that cancer patients will choose them over their own ‘effective and proven’ treatments. In other words, only something that the FDA has approved is a valid method of treatment for cancer, and any sort of home or locally manufactured remedy is not only invalid, but also unlawful.

To give you a sense of how hypocritical this is, in 2004, the FDA refused to investigate a situation in which veterinarians were prescribing experimental drugs for 'extra-label usage' without proper labeling or instructions in clear violation of the AMDUCA labeling laws. The FDA had the proof, which was also corroborated by the California Veterinary Medical Board, but chose not to prosecute, fine, or even investigate because "they didn't have the manpower". And this was only one of several violations reported to them.

I was the reporter; I compiled hundreds of pages in a report I sent to the FDA and USDA, showing that veterinarians were testing experimental drugs on people's pets, and were submitting false test results to the FDA to gain approval for human clinical trials. In addition, these veterinarians were accepting paybacks from pharmaceutical companies to do this. And yet the FDA and the USDA refused to investigate.

I personally went into debt to the tune of thousands of dollars to bring this case, and took it as far as I could before becoming exhausted and demoralized. If this documentation would be helpful to the health food stores being raided, please let me know at pamegranite@aol.com.
