John Hammel has been fighting professionally for health freedom for 10 years. He first got involved with alternative medicine after recovering from a life threatening illness in 1980 via a suppressed alternative treatment mode (orthomolecular medicine) after mainstream methods almost killed him. His personal belief is that herbs and other dietary supplements are gifts to us all from our Creator. As such, he believes it to be highly immoral for anyone to try to restrict their availability or to do anything which would hamper consumer access.
Three panelists, Dr. Robin Falkov, Dr. Terry Grossman and Jon Rappoport discussed health freedom rights, and the encroachment of Codex, which seeks to regulate dosages of vitamins and supplements.(The sale of vitamins and supplements is currently under fire in Europe, where health food manufacturers and retailers recently lost a challenge at the EU Court of Justice).
