National Health Federation
Established in 1955, the National Health Federation is an international consumer-education, health-freedom organization working to protect individuals' rights to choose to consume healthy food, take supplements, and use alternative therapies without government restrictions. With consumer members all over the world, and a Board of Governors and Advisory Board containing representatives from 6 different countries, the Federation is unique as being the only consumer health-freedom organization in the world to enjoy official observer status (able to speak out for health freedom) at meetings of the Codex Alimentarius Commission, the highest international body on food standards.
"When results of the (Laetrile) toxicity tests at Loyola (University, Chicago) were complete, (Dr. Harold Manner, Chairman Biology Dept., author 50 articles, 5 texts) asked NCI to publish the findings in Journal NCI. This the agency refused to do. Publication in other journals was also denied him." - National Health Federation, Bulletin, Nov. 1977.
(Maurice Kowan, MD) "served three months in jail, paid a fine of $3,000, and was forbidden to see a cancer patient...for three years. Before sentencing, it had been suggested to Dr. Kowan...to sign a statement that...Laetrile...had proved no benefit....He refused any 'deals'..." - Betty Lee Morales, "The National Health Federation, Do We Need It?".
"On the very day that the NCI announced Laetrile's alleged worthlessness..., West Virginia became the 24th state to allow the use of Laetrile...In signing the bill into law, Gov. Jay Rockefeller said the study, 'made no difference at all.' - National Health Federation, July, 1981.
