FDA Threatens to Seize All Natural Products that Dare to Mention H1N1 Swine Flu

In an effort to censor any online text that might inform consumers of the ability of natural products to protect consumers from H1N1 influenza A, the FDA is now sending out a round of warning letters, threatening to “take enforcement action… such as seizure or injunction for violations of the FFDC Act without further notice.”

“Firms that fail to take correction action,” the FDA warns, “may also be referred to the FDA’s Office of Criminal Investigations for possible criminal prosecution for violations of the FFDC Act and other federal laws.”

Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

...because their vaccine is the officially approved one. I wonder if we could use anti-monopoly laws to bring this to court?

And FDA is correct. If one wants to say that X cures Y, one needs to prove it in accepted medical tests. I can start selling regular water claiming it cures SARS, for example, with the same legitimacy as someone else selling stuff for Swine flu.
Fighting those things is one of FDA jobs. The only problem i see with their actions is that they are effective against small, weak "snake oilers". But against huge corporations they are much more gentle. Oh, also politicians involvement, big problem too.

They're too late cause I printed all the info I got from the ATS threads a couple months ago.

Whew! (Now I just gotta watch out for them coming to confiscate my stuff)
