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.

The Post-Citizens United Era.

This month marks five years since the United States Supreme Court made their infamous ruling in the case of Citizens United v. FEC. That ruling turned a century of legal precedent on its head with the declaration that corporations have a First Amendment right to spend money in elections. And, that ruling opened the floodgates to massive spending levels in our political process.
