Lawsuit against FDA a success! Court rules censorship of two specific health claims unconstitutional

(NaturalNews) A considerable legal victory has been achieved for the natural health community in defending freedom of health speech. A recent lawsuit filed by the Alliance for Natural Health (ANH) and several other plaintiffs against the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has successfully stopped the FDA from censoring the truth about the health benefits of both vitamin C and vitamin E. The case sets an important precedent for freedom of health speech as the court ruled that censorship of qualified health claims is unconstitutional.
Qualified health claims represent statements that make a connection between a particular substance and its ability to lower disease risk. Such statements can be found on juice containers, cereal boxes, and supplement bottles. One example of a qualified health claim is, "A diet rich in fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of some types of cancer and other chronic diseases."
The landmark 1999 case "Pearson vs. Shalala" established that food and supplement manufacturers are freely permitted to include qualified health claims on their products, so long as there is scientific evidence to back it up. And yet the FDA has fought tooth and nail to restrict the use of qualified health claims in almost every case, which is why ANH and others have repeatedly had to sue the FDA on the grounds that such restrictions are a violation of the First Amendment to the US Constitution.
In the recent case, the District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the FDA's restriction of two specific claims concerning vitamin C and vitamin E, and their role in reducing the risk of cancer, was unconstitutional. The court ruled that the following two claims were permitted for use:
"Vitamin C may reduce the risk of gastric cancer."
"Vitamin E may reduce the risk of bladder cancer."
The FDA had tried to amend the two statements to basically assert that both vitamins play no significant role in cancer prevention. This assessment, of course, is ludicrous when considering that numerous studies have identified a clear link between vitamins C and E, and a reduced risk of cancer (http://cebp.aacrjournals.org/conten...).
Having to individually fight the FDA on each and every health claim for a vitamin, mineral, or nutrient, is not only a huge waste of time and money, but it is also unnecessary. After all, the Constitution already guarantees freedom of speech, which includes freedom of health speech. Nevertheless, ANH is urging the public to garner support for the "Free Speech About Science Act," which will finally put an end to all FDA tyranny against freedom of health speech (http://www.naturalnews.com/032062_f...).

(NaturalNews) Maryanne Godboldo of Detroit, Mich., recently learned the hard way that freedom of choice in medicine is no longer tolerated by the medical mafia in the supposed "land of the free." Recently, armed officers from the Special Response Team (SRT) of the Detroit Police Department (DPD), at the command of Child Protective Services (CPS), unlawfully kicked down the door of Godboldo's home and kidnapped her 13-year-old child.
Her crime? Maryanne chose to follow the lead of a doctor's recommendation to take her daughter off a pharmaceutical drug treatment recommendation for psychosis that was worsening the child's symptoms, and instead chose to use natural remedies to treat the condition.
It all started back in 2009 when Maryanne's previously-homeschooled daughter went in for a series of routine vaccinations in order to be enrolled in middle school. Shortly after receiving the shots, the child began to have severe adverse reactions that included "acting out of character, being irritated, having facial grimaces," and other behavioral problems that Maryanne's mother says she had never had before, and all of which emerged immediately after the vaccines were administered.
Maryanne voluntarily decided to take her daughter to The Children's Center (CC), a group that claims to "enhance the emotional well being of infants, toddlers, preschoolers and their families," in order to get some treatment ideas. CC prescribed Maryanne's daughter some very dangerous psychotropic drugs that eventually ended up only only making the symptoms worse.

Chief Executive Officer [no contact info available]
"Debora Matthews is the CEO of The Children’s Center of Wayne County located in Detroit, Michigan. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from the University of Michigan. Debora has over 30 years of experience in management with an emphasis in finance. She served as a Chief Financial Officer for over 25 years gaining experience in both the corporate and nonprofit sectors; as well as 3 years in public accounting auditing nonprofits and municipalities.
Debora has been a pioneer for The Children’s Center for over 25 years. She served on the Board of Directors as President and Treasurer prior to the appointment as Chief Operating Officer in 2005. In February of 2006, Mrs. Matthews was appointed to the coveted position as Chief Executive Officer for The Children’s Center of Wayne County - a child and family service agency in which she loves."
Maryanne then consulted with an outside physician who recommended that she stop giving the drugs to her child, and instead pursue other options. Maryanne agreed and began to use holistic and natural methods instead -- and as a result, her child's overall health and well-being improved significantly.
The State of Michigan and CPS, however, decided to go after Maryanne for taking the child off the drugs, even though Maryanne was the one that voluntarily took her daughter to The Children’s Center, and voluntarily took their recommendation to try the psychosis drugs. In other words, CPS believed that Maryanne needed to continue to give her daughter the psychotropic drugs, even though she is, and never was, under any legal obligation to adhere to the treatment. In fact, no parent is ever legally required to comply with drug or any other treatments that are harm their children instead of helping them.
But CPS demanded that Maryanne either resume the treatment of surrender her child to them. She refused this offer, of course, since it is both illegal and unconstitutional. But eventually CPS succeeded in getting the muscle and guns behind an outrageous scheme to actually go and abduct Maryanne's child from her home.
An armed SWAT-style team arrived at Maryanne's house days after the initial warning. Agents busted down Maryanne's door, and proceeded to pursue capturing her child -- and they actually brought a tank to the house as part of their operation, as well as full protective gear and large assault weapons.
In an attempt to defend herself against the unlawful, invading terrorists from the state, Maryanne allegedly shot warning fire in an attempt to dissuade the agents from entering, but her efforts were not successful. In the end, the invaders captured the child ,and proceeded to arrest Maryanne on several alleged, but invalid, felony charges. Maryanne was later released, but now faces a huge legal battle as she seeks to regain custody of her child. She will also have to endure thousands of dollars in legal fees throughout the process.
According to Maryanne's lawyer, Wanda A. Evans [23800 W. 10 Mile Rd.,
Southfield, MI 48033-3176 tel. (248) 350-3656 ], the abducting agents never even produced a valid warrant showing that they had a legal right to take Maryanne's child in the first place. In fact, they were asked repeatedly to show a warrant, but refused to do so. Based on this fact alone, both CPS and the "police officers" involved this outrageous event are literally nothing more than criminal terrorists that illegally abducted the child of an innocent civilian woman.
Supporters of Maryanne have set up a website called "Justice for Maryanne Godboldo"
designed to help support Maryanne, and reunite her with her child. Its organizers have created a "Calling Campaign" to demand that urges the public to call every single US representative in Detroit, every single day, to demand an investigation into CPS and the Department of Human Services (DHS) for their crimes in this case
If you would like to help: Please call the following elected officers EVERY DAY and tell them that you want them to investigate the Department of Human Services and the procedures of Child Protective Services. Tell them that you want these policies and procedures to change. Let these elected officials know that it is in their best interests to satisfy the demands of the people of the community. Tell them that we want them to attend the Prayer Vigil on Sunday, April 10 at 6p at Hawthorn on Haggerty Road in Northville, MI to hear our concerns.
Let them know that Child Protective Services cannot get away with treating our law-abiding citizens in this cruel and unconstitutional way.
