FDA defeated in federal court over censorship of truthful health claims

Health freedom has just been handed a significant victory by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, which ruled last week that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) violated the First Amendment rights of a nutritional supplement company when it censored truthful, scientifically-backed claims about how selenium can help reduce the risk of cancer.

Essentially, the FDA applied its doctrine of censorship to these selenium supplements in the same way it oppresses truthful and scientifically-supported health claims across all dietary supplements. The purpose of the FDA’s censorship of truthful information about the health benefits of dietary supplements, as NaturalNews readers already know, is to keep the American people nutritionally illiterate and protect the profits of the pharmaceutical industry.

In this court case, ALLIANCE FOR NATURAL HEALTH, et al. vs. KATHLEEN SEBELIUS, et al., the judge ruled that the FDA violated the First Amendment rights of the plaintiffs by restricting their free speech about the anti-cancer benefits of their selenium supplements.

    Wonderful, wonderful. I’m so tired with the FDA putting their noses where they don’t belong. If they were doing a fair and tolerable job in protecting us against drugs which are often harmful or have serious side effects, I wouldn’t come down on them so hard but they aren’t. And now some members of Congress even think they should oversee the vitamin and supplement industry? Thank you but no thank you. So far we are doing just fine without their “help.”
