This story is a very important practical story because there is yet another active attack on our access to “alternative” medicines, herbs, and dietary supplements.
The pharmaceutical investors and their pocket politicians are emboldened. They couldn’t be happier if the healing herbs and supplements were regulated off the market and taken away from the people. It is a continuation of the centuries-old attack on the “knowers” and the healers. It is a fat and painful reminder that this centuries-old attack was abusive and destructive the very second it started—and that it is not going to stop until we stop it.
No, no, it is not about the protection of our interests because … look around! The same financial interests whose servants purport to protect us from the boogeyman of dietary supplements are poisoning our food, our air, and our water, and chasing us with syringes filed with toxic liquid!
