China's censorship at Olympics mirrors FDA censorship in U.S. - pls. fwd.

NaturalNews Insider Alert ( newsletter

Dear NaturalNews readers,


The U.S. media is complaining about media censorship at the Olympics in China, but at the same time, it refuses to report how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration practices the very same type of censorship, intimidation and tyranny against supplement companies right here at home.


Today I bring you an eye-opening feature story the U.S. mainstream media doesn't want you to read: It's about how China's censorship of the media is mirrored by the FDA's censorship of accurate statements on natural health products (and how the media remains curiously silent on the whole thing).


Read this story that blows the cover off "the myth of free speech" in the United States:

(This is one you'll want to forward to your friends. It's a great introduction to reality for skeptics who mistakenly believe they live in a free country...)


Also today: Broccoli vs. heart attacks | Resveratrol vs. obesity | Drug marketing hype | Antibiotics damage tendons | Road pollution and allergies | and much more!
