The Crony Capitalists’ Continuing War on Health
Pancreatic cancer kills nearly all of its victims within 3 years, yet Steve Jobs lived 8 more years after diagnosis. Nonetheless, CBS and Faux News (in the true spirit of crony capitalism, I'm sure) are blaming alternative medicine for Jobs' demise. It's a dishonest misuse of media; a false conclusion from insufficient data.
The following link explains additional ways by which the big boys smear alternative medicine: http://orthomolecular.org/reso

Can the Obama Admistration protect the consumer? No, it believes that what you put in YOUR body is THEIR business: witness the raids on raw-milk producers, the classification of walnuts as an unapproved drug, and the impending shut-down of California's medical marijuana clinics. Not to mention, of course, that Obamacare's one-size-fits-all model will fatten corporate coffers while debasing and limiting health care.
Thank God for Dr. Ron Paul! He understands that competion among health-care practitioners (including alternative medicine) must ultimately produce better care.
