IAHF List: While IAHF works mostly on International Health Freedom issues,
fighting the EU and Codex Vitamin Wars, Tim Bolen, Monica Miller, Julie
Hilton, Bob Napoli, Bill Faloon, and a host of other stalwarts just
succeeded in passing a superb bill in the State of Florida allowing
patients to have access to alternative treatments, and practitioners to
deliver alternative healthcare without fear of reprisal by the State
Medical Board. See two articles about this wonderful new law below my
comments. The Articles are by Tim Bolen, and Monica Miller.
This new Florida health freedom law builds on similar laws that have passed
in several other states, with complete details available on Monica Miller's
Government Relations Website
:http://www.healthlobby.com/statelaw.html IAHF salutes the people of
Florida who worked so hard to make this happen, especially the Life
Extension Foundation which will soon be opening a special medical clinic at
their new Headquarters in Ft.Lauderdale. For LEF, this new law could not
have been enacted at a better time! http://www.lef.org
IAHF notes that in Canada, Health Freedom bills patterned after these in
the states have passed recently in Ontario and British Columbia, and we
encourage the rest of the world to engage in similar campaigns. We hope
this information will assist towards that objective. Where there is no
vision..... the people perish. Here, people world wide will find plenty of
solid leadership to consult and to pattern similar efforts after. Dr.Rath
is correct: all we have to do to win this war against the Pharma Cartel is
to keep spreading the good news around the world about the healing power of
vitamins and other alternative treatment modalities, and to work like hell
to pass laws like this while opposing the enemy vigilantly.
Please forward this to more people. Anyone can sign onto the IAHF list by

Quackpot menace BLOWN AWAY in Florida...
Opinion by Tim Bolen
Stephen Barrett, and his stumbling minions, have lost ANOTHER
It happened quickly, like a hurricane building off the coast.
Before anyone realized it, a whole Stateful of people were
contacting their legislators demanding action. And, action they
got... The Florida Legislature acted.
Apparently the people of Florida were UNIMPRESSED with the Time
magazine article where Barrett declared himself "I am the
media" - (I'm still laughing about that). They just plain
ignored his bizarre claims about "leading-edge" alternative
medicine and voted themselves their own brand new "Health Freedom
Apparently Florida legislators were ALSO UNIMPRESSED with the
demands of the President of the Florida Dental Association to
"remove dentistry" from the health freedom bill. The President
used the Phillips case as an example of why dentists need to be
excluded. The "President" had testified against Phillips in the
Florida case. Observers said his testimony sounded more like
feeding time at the Miami Zoo duck pond, then the sage words of
an industry professional.
Jan and I were able to help the Florida team, at the last minute,
by leading them to some experts who were able to provide Florida
Senate committee members with six inches of documents showing why
dentists ABSOLUTELY needed to be included.
Apparently Floridians (including elected officals) don't want
their leading-edge health professionals harassed by the Barretts
of the world. The bill passed the Florida Senate by a vote of 35
to1. Then it passed the Florida House UNANIMOUSLY.
Congratulations to the hard-working Florida Team. You've done a
good thing for Floridians. And a good thing for America.

We don't claim to be experts or doctors, we just search for suppressed and
little known information. Any statements we make are solely our opinions and

Opinions expressed in material written by others are their opinions, not
necessarily ours. Sometimes other writers may say something we are sure is
incorrect. For example the writer may say cow's milk is great and parasites
are bad. SunToads happens to think that neither milk nor parasites are great
for humans, but we won't torpedo the entire article if the overall
information is helpful.

do not pretend to be infallible. As more valid research becomes available,
today's best information often goes on tomorrow's junk pile. We continue to

We are aware that there are often volumes of intentional disinformation and
misinformation on many subjects. You too need to be aware that deliberate
lies are frequently promulgated. Sorting it all out is not always easy. We

about something he/she doesn't agree with, and always he/she fails to offer
