In the near future, American medical practice may change dramatically for the worse. No longer will maximal dose natural supplements—vitamins, natural compounds, and scientifically proven medicinal herbs—be available over the counter in local health and grocery stores.
Holistic practice, which relies upon non-prescription natural treatments instead of Big Pharma drugs prescribed life-long, will diminish.
American healthcare will be imprisoned, patients will be forced to abide by a single medical paradigm defined by corporate drug and food executives and dictated by a government enforcement agency, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This is the bleak scenario if the FDA succeeds in limiting Americans’ options to prevent and treat diseases.
‘War on Health’ is the first documentary detailing and challenging the FDA agenda and its allegiance with the international Codex Alimentarius, which hopes to establish a monolithic food and health regime.
Betraying its founding mandate to assure drug, food and chemical safety in the interests of public health, the FDA today is a repressive bureaucracy serving pharmaceutical and agricultural greed and profits.
Vaccines, medical devices, prescription drugs are fast tracked at alarming rates through the FDA at the expense of scientific oversight to assure their efficacy and safety.
The result is hundreds of thousands premature deaths annually from pharmaceutical drugs, vaccines and medical devices and an epidemic of medical incompetence and fraud sanctioned by federal health officials.
Featuring many pioneering American and European attorneys, physicians, medical researchers and advocates of health freedom, War on Health lifts the veil on FDA’s militaristic operations against organic food providers and alternative physicians. The film’s conclusion is perfectly clear: the FDA is a tyrannical cult founded upon the denial of sound medical science with little intention to improve the nation’s health and prevent disease.

The FDA exists to increase profits for drug companies.
The FDA was caught conspiring with the chemical industry to conclude that Bisphenol-A, the plastics chemical, is harmless to human health.
The FDA based its evaluation of BPA on a report authored by the American Chemistry Council (ACC), a trade group that represents chemical companies and plastics manufacturers.
The FDA also recently approved 18 new drugs from Ranbaxy Laboratories even though the company is under investigation for making substandard medications and fraudulently trying to cover their tracks. Ranbaxy is accused of making medications with active ingredients that are both too low and too high, and adding other ingredients to compensate for lesser quantities of the active ingredient in an HIV medication used to treat patients in Africa.
Congress is also investigating why the FDA failed to take action against Ranbaxy even though they knew of the fraudulent medications.
It’s unclear why the FDA is often so quick to approve questionable medications. Many conspiracy theorists don’t understand why the chemical aspartame is FDA approved when it’s been shown to cause cancer in rats; yet natural substances like stevia are considered unsafe by the FDA.
Ideas: Believers usually hold that the FDA is a corrupt organization and serves the aims of the large pharmaceutical companies instead of the population, as they are supposed to.
Often, believers of this theory also believe that the FDA and pharmaceutical companies are actively suppressing known cures for serious diseases such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s disease, and many others.
Theorists believe that the FDA has approved many steroids and chemicals to be injected into our food supply (in the form of antiobiotics and so on) because they are receiving money under the table from pharmaceutical companies.
When the chemicals in our food make us sick, we go to the doctor who in turn prescribes four different medications to treat our illness.
The conclusion conspiracy theorists come to makes sense; after all, it’s bad business for a pharmaceutical company to have our best interests at heart; if we aren’t sick we don’t buy their product.
Since the FDA covers food as well as medicine, it has been claimed that the food industry is including ingredients intended to make people fat and/or addicted to the food.
Many conspiracy theorists find it odd that Europeans eat full-fat diets of bread, dairy, meat and desserts and yet they are thin and healthy. Additionally, when we gain weight from corn-fed beef and high fructose corn syrup, we pay for expensive gym memberships and diet programs which in turn, stimulates the economy.
Theorists also point to the willingness of the FDA to approve medications with serious and sometimes even fatal side effects as proof that the FDAs primary interest is not the health of US citizens. Some people even think that it may be an attempt at population control by the government.
While there isn’t much proof to support the claims of an FDA conspiracy, there have certainly been poor decisions made throughout the years.
We at Conspire.com are chalking this up to the all-too-common failure of a bureaucratic system.
Medications get approved in haste because there are literally thousands of medications submitted for approval each year. Are their pharmaceutical lobbyists shoving bills in the back pockets of the FDA? Probably.
Is the government approving fatal drugs as a means of population control? Probably not.
The Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF), an organization whose mission includes “defending the rights and broadening the freedoms of family farms and protecting consumer access to raw milk and nutrient dense foods”, recently filed a lawsuit against the FDA for its ban on interstate sales of raw milk.
The suit alleges that such a restriction is a direct violation of the United States Constitution. Nevertheless, the suit led to a surprisingly cold response from the FDA about its views on food freedom (and freedoms in general).
In a dismissal notice issued to the Iowa District Court where the suit was filed, the FDA officially made public its views on health and food freedom. These views will shock you, but they reveal the true evil intent of the FDA and why it is truly a rogue federal agency.
a. There is No Right to Consume or Feed Children Any Particular Food
b. There is No Generalized Right to Bodily and Physical Health
c. There is No Fundamental Right to Freedom of Contract
The FDA essentially believes that nobody has the right to choose what to eat or drink. You are only “allowed” to eat or drink what the FDA gives you permission to. There is no inherent right or God-given right to consume any foods from nature without the FDA’s consent.
In a clear move against 90% of the American public, the US Senate has voted 73-26 against labeling genetically modified foods.
This is not democracy; this is corporatocracy.
Meanwhile, on January 1, 2013, the second most populous nation in the world, with over 1.2 billion people, will begin labeling foods that contain genetically modified ingredients. According to a June 5 release by India’s Ministry of Consumer Affairs, under GSR 427(E)(2)(b)(ii), “Every package containing the genetically modified food shall bear at the top of its principal display panel the words ‘GM’.”
Over 50 nations, including all of Europe, label GMO foods.
The US Constitution gives states all rights not specifically enumerated to the federal government.
The feds can’t interfere with how states run their own intrastate commerce, although they often try. So, the amendment was silly and unnecessary.
States already have the right to require GMO food labels, and at least Alaska does, but it’s limited to genetically engineered fish.
However, that 3/4 of the Senate voted against a national GMO food label law is a shame.
The only Republican to vote for it is Alaskan Senator Lisa Murkowski, who joined her Democrat colleague, Mark Begich. In 2005, Alaska passed its own GMO food label law and is fighting hard to ban GE salmon.
