"1935 The Pellagra Incident. After millions of individuals die from Pellagra over a span of two decades, the U.S. Public Health Service finally acts to stem the disease. The director of the agency admits it had known for at least 20 years that Pellagra is caused by a niacin deficiency but failed to act since most of the deaths occured within poverty-striken black populations."---A History Of US Secret Human Experimentation

The FDA Ban of L-Tryptophan: Politics, Profits and Prozac By: Dean Wolfe Manders, Ph.D.

"The British media has been enjoying a feeding frenzy over a report that suggests "minerals and vitamins can cause cancer and liver damage" (The Times), that people are "poisoning themselves" (Sunday Times), and that their health could be "irreversibly damaged" (Daily Telegraph).
    The report and the ensuing press articles come at an ideal time for the pharmaceutical industry - just when the EU is determining safe levels of vitamins to be sold over-the-counter to consumers.  Safe upper levels will be incorporated into a directive that will restrict the sale of vitamins and other nutrients throughout the EU in two years' time.
    The report, from the UK Food Standards Agency, and the press coverage that followed will between them probably sound the death knell for the nutritional industry in Britain and beyond.  Success in restricting vitamin sales in Europe will be followed by a fresh attempt from the pharmaceutical lobby to reintroduce tighter controls in the USA."--WDDTY May 2003

THE ORTHOMOLECULAR TREATMENT OF DRUG ADDICTION by Archie Kalokerinos A.M.M., M.B.B.S., Ph.D., F.A.P.M., Glen Dettman A.M.M., BA, Ph.D., F.A.P.M. We have developed a non-toxic, detoxication procedure where we can take the addicts off heroin or methadone with no withdrawal symptoms. The addicts have no desire to return to the drug and if they do take a "fix," it is like injecting plain water, the detoxication is so complete and rapid. ........Methadone is far worse on the body, from a metabolic point of view, than is heroin.........It is unconscionable to me to put a person on methadone maintenance with no way to get them off......Why is it that the media supports orthodox views so readily, rejecting all other avenues of scientific investigation?
