Kevin Trudeau is a punk
It says so in this book, p. 374:
The government should allocate money directly into funding research organizations that can look at everything EXCEPT drugs and surgery as a way to cure and prevent disease.
He's not happy with where the tax swag is going; he wants it to go to HIS friends. Gods forbid it should stay in your pocket.
This in a 572-page book of which, at best, 100 pages is useable content, the rest being rants about how the FTC won't allow him to say anything substantive so you have to go to his (subscriber) website.
Nobody sane denies that the FDA and FTC are FUBAR. Since this turkey was a best-seller, people are willing to spend money to support the notion. And much of the health advice (such as there is) seems reasonable.
But Kevin wants it both ways. The government which is in thrall to Big Pharma and transnational food companies is going to be an objective voice when placed at the service of the alternative care industry? I don't buy that for a moment. Let's see what we'd get: legitimate drug-oriented treatments would languish, as alternative therapies do now, acetamenophin would be illegal (it's killed many times more people than ephedra), when somebody misdesigns a colonic irrigator and it tears somebody's guts apart, there will be government protection.
If the government has the power to steal from us to benefit another, it will screw up the recipient, guarenteed. And all things being equal, if somebody gets screwed (and, really NOBODY needs to be screwed; a free market would have room for both AMA quackery and Hoxeyan quackery) I'd really rather it be the alternative health sector.
