Turning the Tide on Health Freedom

- The mission of and its Health Liberty partners is to inform and educate you about the fraud and deception created by the junk food, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries that threaten your health.
- Health Liberty is the name of our nonprofit coalition that includes:
Consumers for Dental Choice
Organic Consumers Association (OCA)
Fluoride Action Network (FAN) and
National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC)
- It was formed to help protect your freedom to make voluntary health choices.

Mercury-Free Dentistry Is Forging Ahead
- Amalgam is the #1 use of mercury in America today. By straitjacketing low- and moderate-income consumers, Aetna is one of the major causes of mercury pollution in America today." – Charlie Brown, Executive Director, Consumers for Dental Choice.
- Amalgam dental fillings, which are 50 percent mercury, have been causing a wide range of problems for the past 150 years. Not only does it expose you to mercury, it also damages your teeth, and is a major source of environmental mercury pollution.
- The intention of Consumers for Dental Choice is to end the use of mercury fillings, not just in the US, but around the world. In the video above, Charlie Brown discusses the battle to ban mercury fillings worldwide.
- After years of intense grassroots work, they successfully got dental amalgam included in the Minamata treaty on mercury, which is a legally binding international treaty to control the use of mercury worldwide.
- This was a tremendous victory. The treaty, signed into action in October 2013, marks the beginning of the end for dental amalgam around the world, as it mandates that each nation phase down its use of amalgam.
- The treaty has a road map for how to accomplish this, including switching dental school curriculums to composites as the primary material, re-training dentists, changing insurance to prefer alternatives, and developing a national plan to reduce amalgam use.
- However, while the US was the first country to ratify the treaty, it is no surprise that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is still dragging its heels, and has failed to uphold its promise to create a rule on amalgam.
- The agency still allows the use of amalgam without any warnings or disclosures that it contains mercury, and even supports deceiving parents by calling these mercury products "silver fillings" — referring to the color of the material rather than its composition.
- In the year ahead, with your help, Consumers for Dental Choice will continue to fight to break down these barriers so all consumers have access to mercury-free dentistry.
- Join Consumer's for Dental Choice's newsletter list on, or

GMO Labeling in the US Is at Grave Risk — Act Now!
- "We knew from the European Union that once these genetically engineered foods and food ingredients are labeled – consumers don't want to buy them, grocery stores won't sell them, restaurants won't serve them, and farmers won't grow them. So if we can't get the government to act, we'll act as our own government." – Ronnie Cummins, Found of Organic Consumers Association (OCA)
- The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) and Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT) have been instrumental in raising awareness about the dangers and prevalence of genetically engineered foods, and the necessity to label them.
- We have been very active in campaigning for GMO labeling state laws, and Vermont became the first state to pass such a bill in 2014. In the video Ronnie Cummins from OCA discusses how you can help fight GMOs.
- Unfortunately, we're now facing a major roadblock with the House of Representatives passing HR 15991 ("The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act"2,3,4 a.k.a. the "Deny Americans the Right to Know" or DARK Act).
- The "DARK" Act specifically preempts states' rights to create their own GMO food labeling laws and, if passed by the Senate, will effectively block Vermont's GMO labeling law, set to take effect in 2016.
- The bill would also allow food manufacturers to use the word "natural" on products that contain GMOs. We now only have a very limited time to set our senators straight on this issue.
- If you've not done so already, I urge you to contact your senators and implore them to NOT support HR 1599. Tell them this bill is an attack on consumer rights and states' rights, and you expect your elected officials to protect you.
- You can find your senators' contact information by clicking the button below, or by calling the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121.
- See: House Passes Bill to Prevent GMO Labeling

Billboard Campaign Against Water Fluoridation
- More Studies Emerge Linking Water Fluoridation to Health Risks
- "We need education to fight tooth decay in low income families … Our kids are getting too much sugar; it's not a lack of fluoride it's too much sugar that causes tooth decay." –Paul Connett, Director of The Fluoride Action Network (FAN)
- Contrary to popular belief, the science clearly demonstrates that fluoride is a toxic chemical that accumulates in your body and produces a number of serious adverse health effects, including neurological and endocrine dysfunction.
- Part of the deception that still needs to be broken down is the absurd claim that the only documented drawback or health risk of water fluoridation is dental fluorosis, which is (also falsely) said to be a primarily cosmetic concern.9 This stance completely ignores evidence showing that fluoride is an endocrine disruptor — a finding reported for the first time in 2006.10 Endocrine disruptors can disrupt the biology of both humans and animals, and this is certainly far more significant than dental fluorosis. Moreover, there are 43 studies showing water fluoridation lowers IQ.11,12,13,14 This year we also saw the publication of brand new studies linking water fluoridation to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)15 and hypothyroidism.16,17,18,19
- In response to this alarming research, the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) has launched a nationwide billboard and poster campaign to warn parents that fluoride is classified as a chemical "with substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity" [toxic to children's developing brains & adults'] by the EPA.
- If you or your local fluoride-free campaign would like to run this billboard, please contact FAN's Campaign Manager(

Feds Now Plan to Force Vaccines on All Kids and Adults Too (Except the Super-Rich)
- "Moving numbers around in a computer is a poor substitute for actually proving an experimental vaccine does not kill and injure real human beings before it's licensed."  – Barbara Loe Fisher, Co-Founder of National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC)
- The human right to exercise informed consent to medical risk taking, including use of pharmaceutical products like vaccines that carry a risk of injury or death, is the definition of liberty -- and forced vaccination is a form of tyranny.
- Today, there is no greater threat to liberty in America than the government-enforced use of pharmaceutical products, such as vaccines, sold for profit by corporations that have no financial or legal liability and accountability whatsoever for harm caused by those products. Across America today, citizens are being treated by a Pharma-led forced vaccination lobby that is pressuring state legislatures to pass laws that violate the civil right to a school education and employment when citizens refuse to give up their human right to exercise informed consent to vaccine risk taking.
- But make no mistake about it: what happened in California in 2015 is America's final wake-up call. NVIC predicts that forced vaccination bills seeking to eliminate all non-medical vaccine exemptions are going to be introduced again in 2016 in states that defeated those bills last year. The forced vaccination lobby is determined to eliminate virtually all non-medical vaccine exemptions in every state.
- It is also becoming clearer that forced vaccination laws will not just be limited to children. The National Adult Immunization Plan is targeting all adults for mandatory use of federally recommended vaccines as well.
- So please get involved in protecting vaccine choices and sign up for the free online NVIC Advocacy Portal to be put in electronic contact with your elected officials, so you can educate them about protecting the human right to informed consent to medical risk taking and the civil right to a school education, medical care, and employment.

- In addition to our Health Liberty partners, we also provide support to:
Food Democracy Now!   
Rabies Challenge Fund
Center for Nutrition Advocacy
Cornucopia Institute   
American Holistic Veterinary Medical Foundation (AHVMF)
Vitamin D Council

Medical Control, Medical Corruption
By Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

The vested interests are sick over it: Americans are beginning, just slightly, to take charge of their own health care. Such best-sellers as the Doctor’s Book of Home Remedies, the Physician’s Desk Reference, and the Merck Manual can keep you out of the doctor’s appropriately named waiting room, or at least help you understand what is being done to you, when an apple a day does not work.

Who is unhappy with this increased knowledge? The American Medical Association, which for almost 150 years has sought to institutionalize a rip-off and to keep sick people and their families oblivious to it. Thanks to this central committee of the medical cartel, the number of medical schools and medical students is drastically restricted, state licensure further obstructs the supply of doctors, fees are largely secret and controlled across the industry, alternative treatments and practitioners are outlawed, pharmacists and nurses are hamstrung, and the mystique of the profession rivals the priesthood, although priests have a somewhat lower income. Meanwhile, the customer pays through the nose, even if he does not go to an otolaryngologist [nose doctor].

Medicaid and Medicare have contributed to the problem, but the medical cartel is the original sin. Through its ability to keep [medical] incomes high by limiting supply and outlawing competition, organized medicine has punished its customers....

Hillary Clinton’s proposed merger of the medical cartel and the state ... is also the logical next step in the partnership of government and medicine. ... In addition to opposing Hillary hammer and tongs, we should reexamine the AMA’s distortion of the medical marketplace and the very idea of medical licensure.

Competition among providers — as with any service in a market economy — leads to rational pricing and maximum consumer choice. But this is exactly what the AMA has always sought to prevent. The American Medical Association, organized in New York in 1848, advanced two seemingly innocent propositions in its early days: that all doctors should have a “suitable education” and that a “uniform elevated standard of requirements for the degree of M.D. should be adopted by all medical schools in the U.S.” These were part of the AMA’s real program ... to secure a government-enforced medical monopoly and high incomes for mainstream doctors.

... The public had a different view, however. Official treatments of the time, such as bloodletting and mercury poisoning, harmed and sometimes murdered patients, causing mass outrage.

Emphatically not included among the [AMA-approved practitioners] were the homeopaths. ... Homeopathy did not kill people, as Orthodox medicine did. The homeopaths actually followed the Hippocratic injunction “First, do not harm”....

Eventually, homeopathy became almost as popular as allopathy, especially in the Northeast and Midwest. Many business leaders favored it and funded free dispensaries for the poor. This was made possible by the free market. From the early part of the century until 1850, state laws interfering in medical practice were gradually repealed. ... New York, for example, got rid of nearly all of its criminal legislation regarding medicine, forbidding only malpractice and immoral conduct by physicians. As one state senator said, “The people of this state have been bled long enough in their bodies and pockets.” He called on them to demand medical freedom, in the tradition of “the men of the Revolution.”

The AMA was founded to reverse the trend. ... Organized medicine claimed people were being fooled. But as Harris Livermore Coulter explains in his extraordinary 1969 study of the AMA’s founding, “People were deserting orthodox medicine … not out of ignorance, but out of knowledge of regular practice and consequent dislike of it.” ...

In 1849, the AMA worried that simply outlawing competition would not override the public’s perversity. ... The organization knew it needed more than persuasion to secure a monopoly, so it also called for a national bureau of medicine to oversee state licensing and other regulations. In those limited-government days, however, the idea went nowhere. But in the statist Progressive Era after the turn of the century, anticompetitive measures became respectable, and the AMA renewed its drive for a cartel, spurred on by the popularity of self-medication and the increasing number of medical schools and doctors. (In 1902, an AMA study decried the competition that had lowered physicians’ incomes.) ...

The state legislatures showed little interest in more restrictionist laws, so the AMA appointed the secretary of the Kentucky State Board of Health to rouse the profession to lobby. Joseph N. McCormack spent a decade in agitprop among the doctors of more than 2,000 cities and towns, inspiring them with such speeches as “The Danger to the Public From an Unorganized and Underpaid Medical Profession.” Like medical ethicists before and since, he denounced advertising (letting customers know services and prices in advance) and quackery (unapproved competition). Join our union, he said, and we will raise your pay. By 1910, about 70,000 doctors belonged to the AMA, an eight-fold increase over the previous decade.

To help bring about a higher-paid profession, the AMA in 1904 created the Council on Medical Education, which sought to shut down more than half the existing medical schools.... Then the council’s secretary N.P. Colwell helped plan (and some say write) the famous 1910 report by Abraham Flexner. Flexner, the owner of a bankrupt prep school, had the good fortune to have a brother, Simon, who was director of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. At his brother’s suggestion, Abraham Flexner was hired by the Rockefeller-allied Carnegie Foundation so that the report would not be seen as a Rockefeller initiative. ... Claiming to have investigated nearly every school in the country, Flexner rated them.... Schools he praised received lush grants from the Rockefeller and associated foundations, and almost all the medical schools he condemned were shut down, especially the “commercial” institutions. ...

Post-Flexner, a school could not be approved if it taught alternative therapies, didn’t restrict the number of students, or made profits based on student fees. Why the opposition to for-profit schools? If an institution were supported by student fees rather than philanthropic donations, it could be independent of the foundations. The Rockefeller family had invested heavily in allopathic drug companies and wanted doctors to use their products.

The Flexner Report was more than an attack on free competition [and was] funded by special interests. It was also a fraud. ... Flexner claimed to have thoroughly investigated 69 schools in 90 days, and he sent prepublication copies of his report to the favored schools for their revisions. Homeopaths noted that his authority derived solely “from an unlimited access to the pocketbook of a millionaire.” ... Years later, Flexner admitted that he knew nothing about medical education. But he did not need to in order to serve his employers’ purposes.

Flexner’s attack, stepped up by the AMA’s Council on Medical Education and its state medical boards, closed 25 schools in three years, with more over the years to come, and cut the number of students attending the remaining schools in half. All non-mainstream practitioners were targeted. ... With its monopoly, the AMA sought to fix prices. Early on, the AMA had come to the conclusion that it was “unethical” for the consumer to have any say over what he paid. Common prices were transmuted into professional “fees”.... Lowering fees and advertising them were the worst violations of medical ethics and were made illegal. When fees were raised across the board, as they frequently could be with decreased competition, it was done in secret. ...

The AMA, in its constant quest for higher incomes through lower competition, also battled churches and other charities that gave free medical care to the poor. Through lobbying, it attempted to stamp out what it called “indiscriminate medical charity.” A model 1899 law in New York put the control of all free health care under a State Board of Charities dominated by the AMA. To diminish the amount of free care, the board imposed fines and even jail terms on anyone giving treatment without first getting the patient’s address and checking on his financial status. Then there was the problem of pharmacists selling drugs without a doctor’s prescription. ... In nearly every state, the AMA secured laws that made it illegal for patients to seek treatment from a pharmacist. ...

There were other threats that also had to be put down: “nostrums,” treatments that did not require a visit to the doctor, and midwives, who had better results than doctors. Also a danger was “contracting out,” a company practice of employing physicians to provide care for its workers. ...

By the end of the Progressive Era, the orthodox profession as led by the AMA had triumphed over all of its competitors. Through the use of government power, it had come to control education, licensure, treatment, and price. Later it outcompeted fraternal medical insurance with the state-privileged and subsidized Blue Cross and Blue Shield. ... AMA control remains much the same, and as a result, even incompetent doctors are guaranteed high incomes. ...

Now, if Hillary gets her way, licensing will become even more abusive. ... Real reform would remove the AMA’s grip on the marketplace and subject the entire industry to competition. Until then, stock up on home medical books.

[See Dr. Mercola's Articles for January above.]

Cancer Industry Fraud & Dangers

Misleading Statistical information:  “The five year survival statistics of the American Cancer Society are very misleading. They now count things that not cancer, and because we are able to diagnose at an earlier stage of the disease, patients falsely appear to live longer. Our whole cancer research in the past 20 years has been a failure. More people over 30 are dying from cancer than ever before….More women with mild or benign diseases are being included in statistics and reported as being “cured”. When government officials point to survival figures and say they are winning the war against cancer they are using those survival rates improperly.” Dr J. Bailer, New England Journal of Medicine, Sept/ Oct 1990.

When cancer isn’t cancer-  in a new report commissioned by the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI). Published online in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), identifies both overdiagnosis and misdiagnosis of cancer as two major causes of this growing epidemic, which together have led to the needless treatment of millions of otherwise healthy individuals with chemotherapy, radiation or surgery.

The report drops a few major bombshells on the way that many cancers are diagnosed. Breast cancer, for instance, is sometimes not breast cancer at all but rather a benign condition such as ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). However, untold millions of women with DCIS have been misdiagnosed as having breast cancer, and subsequently treated for a condition that likely never would have caused them any health problems. And similarly in men, high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (HGPIN), a type of premalignant precursor to cancer, is commonly mistreated as if it was actual cancer.

“The practice of oncology in the United States is in need of a host of reforms and initiatives to mitigate the problem of overdiagnosis and overtreatment of cancer, according to a working group sanctioned by the National Cancer Institute,” explains about the study. “Perhaps most dramatically, the group says that a number of premalignant conditions, including ductal carcinoma in situ and high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia, should no longer be called ‘cancer.'”
