maybe they want to bring everything down and start from scratch, maybe its the whole order out of chaos theory and the new world order, its all becoming too much to handle

I gather from this that their only goal is to protect their bottom line. With that in mind, any treatment that is not supplied by big pharma hurts their profits. Therefore, that is why some vitamin supplements, naturopathic medicine, stem cell treatment, etc. have been made illegal. It's not some conspiracy to make us all unhealthy, it's all about the all mighty dollar. If it is more profitable for us to be sick, nutrient deprived and emotionally disturbed, than that is what they will instigate. It's just the way things work in an inverted totalitarian state. That includes Canada too now, sadly enough. Gotta love Codex Alimentarius. BTW if you do not know what that is, by god, research it and prepare to be very, very disturbed.

On the other hand, the reason why many "alternative treatments," such as herbs, are not allow to market themselves as being 'Cures" or "preventatives" is because they cannot provide proper studies that prove that they work. When an herbal ingredient turns out to be efficacious, Big Pharma is quick to publish the proper studies and market it themselves.
I think it is a good idea that people can't make any old claims they like without scientific proof, but our system is a little ridiculous with regard to some of the proven benefits of vitamins/minerals that already have oodles of research to back up their effectiveness. It costs an awful lot of money to go through the FDA procedure, they do not have any other cheaper process in place to grandfather perfectly proved remedies with existing scientific peer reviewed fact.
A classic example of this silliness is Vitamin C. In the FDA world ….vitamin C does not cure anything....yes only a drug can cure disease. So Scurvy cannot be a disease....it may be an established scientific fact, with loads of peer reviewed journals that vitamin C will indeed prevent and cure Scurvy, but....nope there it is right on my vitamin bottle .. Not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease.....
I do have an issue with the FDA deciding a person’s own cells, used by themselves are a drug. They need to focus on doing a better job of regulating synthetic chemicals made by the Pharma industry. They are supposed to be the food and drug administration not regulators of qualified practicing Doctors.
