@30m56s "Let's talk about the cherry growers.. the group of cherry growers had a web site, and on that web site there was a link. It was to Harvard's web site and their research on the benefits of cherries, in terms of treating gout I believe. So FDA looked at that web site, there were no health claims on that web site, but it linked to another web site that discussed scientific peer-reviewed research, and FDA determined that that was sufficient to be making an illegal health claim. FDA went after the cherry growers, literally with guns blazing, knocked down their doors, forced them to sign a consent decree, and agree never to share any information about the benefits of cherries again, at the risk of all sorts of legal proceedings, and essentially the loss of their company."

"so what has happened over the last several decades is that the pharmaceutical industry in particular has become the number 1 cause of disease and death in america by poisoning people, essentially, with its toxic chemicals.. by weakening people's immune systems and weakening their liver, weakening their neurological functions so that they become future revenue generating patients." wish these statements were referenced, it would be interesting to see pharma fatality stats..

"Statin drugs have been approved despite the fact that at the time the FDA convened its medical panel, review panel on the statin drugs.. at first refused to approve the drug/ well the unfortunate reality of the drugs is that they block production of an essential energy enzyme, CoQ10 which can lead to heart failure. so here we have again a situation where a drug has been approved to lower your risk of heart abnormalities, that in the end can contribute to heart fatalities"
