[2012] The Cancer Treatment Protection Racketó How the Cancer Act 1939 maintains ineffective cancer treatments by John Smith  The Cancer Act 1939 and similar legislation around the world gives orthodox cancer treatment an undeserved monopoly, ensuring that ineffective but profitable treatments like chemotherapy and radiotherapy can never be challenged by more effective alternative treatments.

[2011 July] Animals, Homeopathy and ASA  Now, we find that the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) have decided that qualified homoeopaths are now no longer permitted to explain how homoeopathy works. Furthermore, they're not allowed to publish evidence on their websites, provided by their own patients, because of new regulations and bureaucracy. No matter that these patients have actually benefitted from homeopathy, and are well again. It seems ludicrous that homoeopath are not allowed to explain how they perceive homoeopathy to work.

Living In A Fascist Country - Banned

"The medical and scientific establishments have (largely through the fact that they have sold out to the enormously wealthy and powerful international pharmaceutical industry) obtained more or less complete control over politicians and the media.....advertisements for my book Food for Thouqht are still banned by Britain's Advertising Standards Authority because the book contains advice on what sort of diet to eat in order to reduce the chance of developing cancer.
        Because we refused to accept the ban the ASA (which, quite bizarrely, will not accept scientific research papers or even government publications in evidence) has warned newspapers not to accept any of our advertisements. The ASA claims to exist to protect the public but I find it difficult to see how banning a book that contains a summary of proven clinical advice on how to avoid cancer can possibly protect the public. It seems to me that, wittingly or unwittingly, the ASA is simply protecting the cancer establishment. I find it difficult to avoid the observation that the cancer industry would undoubtedly find it much harder to raise money if the incidence of cancer were cut."---Dr Vernon Coleman

"We KNOW the answer to cancer…Yet the authorities, in the form of the law of the land (UK), will not allow this book (The Good News On Cancer) to be promoted to lay persons…..it is not permitted that they can even be told where to find information that might help them. That has got to be democracy with a very small d……One eminent publisher…backed out as he feared he could be jailed for infringing the Cancer Act by offering the book to the public. Another…was deliberately pressured by an unnamed group after his medical reader (an M.D.), having checked the manuscript, leaked its contents to a confidential authority."---Dr Richards & Frank Hourigan.

"Advertisements for my book Living In A Fascist Country have been officially banned in the UK by the Advertising Standards Authority. I have no idea why.  As far as I know they haven't seen a copy of the book. But they probably don't like the title. VC August 28th 2006." Living In A Fascist Country - Banned
