From: Dr. Mercola
Ron Paul supports all the basic principles of the Constitution – including limited government involvement.
What does this mean for your health?
Just as I encourage you to Take Control of Your Health, Ron Paul seeks to maximize your individual freedom, including those basic rights that pertain to your health.
Already, Paul has introduced The Health Freedom Protection Act, which would strongly and positively affect Mercola.com and many other natural health organizations and advocates, along with the field of natural health in general. This bill would curb restrictions imposed by the FDA and FTC regarding health claims for dietary supplements, preventing the FDA from censoring truthful claims about the curative or preventative effect of dietary supplements.
The fact that we need serious healthcare reform, and wider access and education about preventative health, is nothing new. Ron Paul understands these issues, and as President, he would have even more opportunities to introduce positive, and much-needed, change in the health-care arena. In terms of your health, Ron Paul:
• Wants to expand the ability of Americans to use alternative medicine and new treatments.
• Opposes legislation that increases the FDA‘s legal powers.
• Believes the government should never have the power to require immunizations or vaccinations.
