Dr. Mercola on Ron Paul
Dr. Paul is one of my heroes. He is a shining example of how one solitary voice can inspire and bring necessary change. He is nearly single-handedly leading the charge to address the perversion that multi-national corporations have done to the U.S. government.
Not only has Dr. Paul been making quite an impression during the recent Republican presidential debates, he’s also introduced a bill that would strongly and positively affect Mercola.com and many other natural health organizations and advocates, and the field of natural health in general.
The Health Freedom Protection Act would prevent the FDA from censoring truthful claims about the curative or preventative effect of dietary supplements, a popular issue for Americans — but not necessarily for Congressmen, especially for those receiving donations from the multi-national drug company cartel.
One of the more recent flashpoints in the debate over dietary supplements occurred eight years ago, after studies emerged that tart cherries may do more good than aspirin or other anti-inflammatory drugs when it comes to pain relief. When cherry growers began to cite this research, the FDA came down hard on 29 of them, threatening legal action if they didn’t remove the scientific evidence about cherries from their Web sites.
At the very same time the FDA was harassing cherry farmers, the agency was approving the heart-stopping drug Vioxx, which was pulled from the American market in 2004. Think about that — truthful studies about cherries could not be referred to, but deadly and dangerous drug alternatives could be advertised everywhere.
The support for Dr. Paul is like nothing I have ever seen before. I read nearly three dozen blogs every day and about 5,000 posts a week so I have a good sense of what people are feeling. The support for Dr. Paul has been almost universally positive for his effort.
When I posted an article about him in last week’s newsletter he had over a 97 percent positive comment rating. This is rare, and I believe it’s because he speaks the TRUTH and that resonates at a deep level with those who seek it. It is my sincere hope that enough of a groundswell can be generated through the Internet to give him a chance to be the next president. You never know, stranger things have happened.
