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.

Cheap, ‘safe’ drug kills most cancers

New Scientist quickly backpedaled on this story in an attempt to minimize the efficacy of the unpatented chemical DCA (see Update). -Ed.

New Scientist, Mar. 29, 2012

It sounds almost too good to be true: a cheap and simple drug that kills almost all cancers by switching off their “immortality”. The drug, dichloroacetate (DCA), has already been used for years to treat rare metabolic disorders and so is known to be relatively safe.

Evangelos Michelakis of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, and his colleagues tested DCA on human cells cultured outside the body and found that it killed lung, breast and brain cancer cells, but not healthy cells.
Tumours in rats deliberately infected with human cancer also shrank drastically when they were fed DCA-laced water for several weeks.

Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda) Cancer Treatment

International Veritas Medical Association, Mar. 20, 2012

Bicarbonate, when used in conjunction with other equally safe substances, can form the basis for a natural chemotherapy, which will prove itself in the end compared to vastly more toxic interventions. Everyone knows in their gut the horrors that await those who travel down the chemo, surgery and radiation roads. Why travel down these pits to hell when safer, vastly more inexpensive, natural and potentially highly effective answers like sodium bicarbonate are there on the supermarket shelves for the taking?

Bicarbonate is the universal mainstream treatment of acidosis and is used by oncologists to neutralize the heavy acid nature of their chemo agents, which are quite dangerous to the patient. It is also used routinely in many clinical situations:

1) Severe diabetic ketoacidosis
2) Cardiopulmonary resuscitation
3) Pregnancy
4) Hemodialysis
5) Peritoneal dialysis
6) Pharmacological toxicosis
7) Hepatopathy
8) Vascular surgery operations

Medics and doctors are used to participating in a flurry of activity when trying to save a person who’s had a cardiac arrest — inserting IVs, placing a breathing tube, performing defibrillation to restart the heart. Sodium bicarbonate is a constant performer under such conditions and is more commonly used then magnesium injections, which should be on top of every doctor’s protocol for cardiac arrest.
