I am the legal director of Natural Solutions Foundation, Ralph Fucetola JD.
During 35 years in legal practice I was known as The Vitamin Lawyer. For the past ten years I've been one of the Trustees of the Foundation.
Established in 2004 by Maj. Gen. Bert Stubblebine (US Army ret.) and Rima E. Laibow MD, the Mission of the Foundation is to "Discover, Develop, Demonstrate, Document and Disseminate natural solutions..."
You may have known us from helping us stop the 2007 FDA "CAM Guidance" that, if finalized, would have stopped natural means to achieve and maintain health. Or, perhaps you were among the millions of Americans who joined with us in 2009 to reject the unsafety-test Swine Flu Vaccine, thereby rejecting the pandemic that never was.
I'm not writing about those achievements. Rather, let's talk about Ebola and Nano Silver 10 PPM. Dr. Rima Laibow has practiced drug-free medicine and psychiatry for over 40 years. She has long recommended Nano Silver for immune system support.
Back in 2007 she spoke to dozens of African Ministers of Health in Mombassa about the emerging viruses and natural remedies. So it was natural that, during the Ebola Crisis, with even the World Health Organization (WHO) saying it is "ethical" to try even "unproven interventions" and there was a "duty to evaluate" them, that Dr. Rima would talk about Nano Silver and the hemorrhagic viruses. And that our Foundation would tell the world about the US government sponsored in vitro study, declassified in 2009, that showed Nano Silver 10 PPM supported normal cell membrane integrity in the presence of Ebola virus. The virus did not penetrate the living cells and could not replicate, thereby not leading to disease.
Apparently the US government does not want us to tell people about this important study while we provide, on an overall nonprofit basis, the very same Nano Silver used in the study, as Dr. Rima Recommends Nano Silver 10 PPM: http://drrimatruthreports.com/us-govt-nano-silver-study-declassified-2009/ .
So both the FDA and its sister agency, the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) issued a Warning Letter to us in September 2014 telling us to stop speaking what we understood to be truthful information.
The Agencies based their demand on their interpretation of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) wherein Congress overstepped its Constitutional Limits and compelled every purveyor of nutrients to put on the label, "This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease."
Even if Congress had the power to compel us to speak or not speak, it does not have the power to compel us to express an opinion that we may or may not hold.
This legal requirement violates the First Amendment to the Constitution and violates the Supreme Court cases of Johnson vs FDA (1911) and Thompson vs Western States (2002).
As one well-known former Judge and media commentator told me about this, "The sine qua non of compelled speech is truth..." Government cannot compel us to express an opinion we do not hold.
So we mean to take the FDA and FTC to court over this violation of our rights to Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Association. Based on advice we've received, if we can reach the Supreme Court, we have a very good chance of prevailing and overturning a century of censorship of Speech about Food and Health.
To do so we have carefully responded to the Warning Letter with a Plan of Compliance (under protest) as required by the Warning Letter, in order to "exhaust our administrative remedies" before going to Court. We have also formally petitioned the FDA to allow us to make the truthful statements about Nano Silver that we believe we have a right to state.
We have leading civil rights and health care attorneys working with us, but need to raise at least $100,000 to initially fund the lawsuit that we are calling The Health Freedom of Speech Lawsuit.
We need your financial support to finally stop the FDA attacks on speech about food (including vitamins) and health.
You can help fund our lawsuit by donating on this GoFundMe web site, which you can do anonymously.
We also need you to tell your Congressional and State representatives that you want the FDA stopped, for, as Dr. Ron Paul famously said, to give more power to the FDA is to give it "more power to abuse..."
Tell your representatives here, adding your voice, in private expressive association with us, to our formal FDA Petition: http://tinyurl.com/FreeHealthSpeech
Remember to tell all your circles of influence: the time has come to take back our Freedom of Speech regarding Food and Health!
