Protest Against Persecution of the Health Movement by the Food and Drug Administration

Protest Against Persecution of the Health Movement by the Food and Drug Administration

By Karl B. Lutz, Attorney

Summary: A landmark letter of protest against the FDA's blatant persecution of natural-health practices in the United States. First, attorney Karl Lutz keenly outlines the basic principles of whole-food nutrition, including the need to grow foods in healthy soil, to process such foods as minimally as possible, and to opt for natural vitamins over synthetics. He then presents examples of governmental abuse in persecuting, prosecuting, and intimidating honest health professionals and other groups promoting nutritional approaches to health. He singles out the 1939 case of the FDA against Royal Lee as particularly egregious. "I have examined the records of that suit, and in my opinion, as a lawyer with some knowledge of biochemistry, it was one of the greatest miscarriages of justice I have ever seen." This document is a forerunner—by over a decade—of massive petitioning of Congress for relief from the pharma/medical cartel monopoly, whose agenda in healthcare was, and still is, preferentially enforced by the agencies of the U.S. government. Originally published by the National Health Federation. Reprint 8-63, 1963.
