Yes, heaven forbid we regulate an industry flush with frauds, liars, and snake oil salesmen. I love how they set themselves up as the underdog against nasty Big Pharma. The alt. medicine and dietary supplement industry is absolutely a powerful special interest. Sure, they don't have the same resources as Big Pharma yet, but that doesn't make them poor or powerless. And they are absolutely defrauding the public and making unproven health claims for their products. Remember Airborne? "Natural" does not mean safe.

@Reed9: you said: "And they are absolutely defrauding the public and making unproven health claims for their products."

Maybe some are, but not in Texas. Doctors cant recommend such products to their patients, whole foods clerks cant recommend them or make claims about their efficacy. Nutritional supplements advertising and claims are much more closely regulated than are those of big pharma.

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
