The FDA Protection Racket

The War on Cancer Herbs, Cancer Foods and Alternative Cancer Treatments:

Back in the 1970s the media reported the story of a man who was arrested for having a Volkswagen full of apricot pits.  As absurd as that sounds the FDA is still waging war against natural, God-given remedies and the people who promote them.  Jason Vale was sentenced to spend five years of his life in federal prison in 2003 for selling and promoting apricot pits on his website.  Jason used apricot pits to successfully treat his own cancer. 

Jason continued his "Apricots From God" cancer crusade and he and his mother were arrested again in October 2019. 

Medical profession statistics reveal that drugs approved by the FDA kill over 100,000 Americans in hospitals every year!  The number of Americans killed by herbs over the past century is so small it is not even worth mentioning.  Why then is the FDA aggressively attacking people who sell cancer herbs and other natural remedies?  The answer to this question was given by the most credible witness you could imagine—Dr. Herbert Ley, former Commissioner of the FDA:

“The thing that bugs me is that people think the FDA is protecting them.  It isn't.  What the FDA is doing and what the public thinks it's doing are as different as night and day."


"First, it is providing a means whereby key individuals on its payroll are able to obtain both power and wealth through granting special favors to certain politically influential groups that are subject to its regulation.  This activity is similar to the 'protection racket' of organized crime:  for a price, one can induce FDA administrators to provide 'protection' from the FDA itself.

"Secondly, as a result of this political favoritism, the FDA has become a primary factor in that formula whereby cartel-oriented companies in the food and drug industry are able to use the police powers of government to harass or destroy their free-market competitors.

"And thirdly, the FDA occasionally does some genuine public good with whatever energies it has left over after serving the vested political and commercial interest of its first two activities.”  [WORLD WITHOUT CANCER by G. Edward Griffin]

Dr. Herbert Ley became the Medical Director for the FDA in 1966.  In July of 1968 Dr. Ley was appointed head of the FDA.  He resigned in December 1969.

According to the FDA’s own website “Ley also strongly castigated drug industry practices in general, warning them that ‘unless there is a major change in the drug industry emphasis on sales over safety, the industry as we know it today may well be buried within the next several years in a grave it has helped dig—inch by inch, overpromotion by overpromotion, bad drug by bad drug'”

When Dr. Ley resigned, Secretary of HEW Finch praised him as a “gifted scientist and a dedicated public servant [who] coped strenuously with an unwieldy agency.”

Even the courts have exposed the FDA’s fraudulent war on apricot pits and Vitamin B17 (aka “Laetrile” or “amygdalin” that is extracted from apricot pits).  The FDA has forever claimed that laetrile is toxic.  In one court case they even went so far as to place a big sign in the courthouse lobby which stated:  “BEWARE OF LAETRILE!  IT IS TOXIC!” 

However, in that very court case Dr. Bruce Halstead testified as an expert witness on toxicology that aspirin, sugar and salt were more toxic than Laetrile.  His testimony caught the FDA attorneys with their pants down, because they had not realized that Dr. Bruce Halstead had been commissioned by the FDA to write the definitive book on toxic substances, the FDA's own "TEXTBOOK ON TOXICOLOGY".  Here’s how that case ended:

Judge:  "You are telling me that you have filed suit in this court that Laetrile is toxic, and you don’t have a single witness or a shred of evidence to support such a suit?"

Attorney:  "That is correct, Your Honor."

Judge:   “Then why have you filed such a suit?"

Attorney:  " Because, Your Honor, Laetrile may be dangerous."

Judge:  "Dangerous to whom?"

Attorney:  "Dangerous to the Federal Government, Your Honor."

Judge:  "How could Laetrile possibly be dangerous to the Federal Government?"

Attorney:  "Because, Your Honor, the Government may lose control."

Judge (angry):   "Case dismissed!" 

Of course laetrile is only “dangerous” to the parasitic FDA officials whose salaries are funded by U.S. taxpayers and to the gargantuan pharmaceutical corporations who hire and plant FDA officials and make billions of dollars every year killing over 100,000 Americans with their man-made poisons.  (It is important to note that this number does not include the hundreds of thousands of people who are not killed by these drugs, but who suffer the adverse side effects of these so-called "medicines";  sometimes the side effects are worse than the disease and many FDA-approved "medicines" and "food additives" are known to cause cancer!)

But the fraud doesn't just stop there:  Laetrile, or vitamin B17, is contained in many natural foods that we eat every day, such as:

Grains:  brown rice, barley, flax seeds, millet, quinoa

Legumes:  lentils, fava beans, garbanzo beans, lima beans, buckwheat

Berries:  blackberries, boysenberries, raspberries, strawberries

Nuts:  walnuts, almonds, cashews, macadamia nuts, pecans

Greens:  spinach, alfalfa sprouts, mung bean sprouts, beet greens

Other:  yams, brewer’s yeast, bamboo shoots, grape seeds, apple seeds

Therefore, laetrile is a natural, God-given substance provided in the very foods we eat.   “Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.”  Ezekiel 47:12. 

However, according to the FDA we are all supposed to drop dead from eating almonds, rice and alfalfa sprouts.  In spite of this absurdity the FDA continues to foist their fraudulent propaganda upon the American people and persecute people who might pose a threat to their corporate profit “protection racket”. 

The FDA and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) are predatory birds of a feather.  In the words of Dr. Gary Glum, "The FDA and the FTC are the leg-breakers for the pharmaceutical cartels."   There is no constitutional provision for FDA/FTC activities.  The FDA and FTC are nothing more than mafia-style, criminal organizations that are in a state of treason to We the People.  When it comes to health fraud, the FDA and FTC are the biggest culprits.

(By the way, I have been eating apple seeds for many years--whenever I eat an apple--and I have never observed any negative reaction from eating them.)

There exists an incredible amount of evidence that the FDA is a criminal organization.  One of the best examples of this is the FDA's attack on Dr. S. R. Burzynski, MD, PHD.  Dr. Burzynski was attacked by both state and federal medical establishments for curing cancer patients!

Please watch the movie "Burzynski:  Cancer Cover-Up".  This documentary proves that the FDA is a criminal organization that only supports drugs, chemotherapy, radiation and surgery as a "treatment" for cancer.  These government-approved harmful treatments result in untold deaths for cancer patients.  This is not just criminal--It is a crime against humanity and must be ended!
