    Default Free Speech Court Ruling Could Have Far-Reaching Consequences

    Alliance for Natural Health
    December 4 2012

    Big Pharma seems to be the winner. But this could open the door for natural health companies to cite truthful science about supplements.

    As we have noted before, the FDA thinks that “misbranding” can mean making a completely true statement about a product but without FDA permission. The FDA is definitely not a fan of free speech.

    A cherry producer who cites peer-reviewed scientific research from prestigious universities on the health benefits of cherries would, in FDA-speak, have engaged in “false” and actionable “misbranding” which suddenly turns the cherries into what FDA calls “drugs.” It’s because of this “misbranding” threat that supplement producers are not allowed to discuss scientific research on the efficacy of their products.
