Bloodroot, Chinese Medicine, and the FDA - Keeping the Public Medically Ignorant

(NaturalNews) Mention the word "cancer" on an internet site that sells herbs now days and you are suddenly Public Enemy Number One! I received a warning letter from the FDA basically saying, "If you do not change your wording and making of any claims or publishing testimony of anyone cured of cancer by herbs or anything else that is not an FDA approved drug then we will legally raid your property, take all we want to confiscate and arrest you". I was one of the "lucky 25" that received a warning letter last month.

Even our own Tucson local TV stations put our "Plant Cures" logo all over the screen and jumped on the band wagon making me out to look like a charlatan and seller of "fake" cures. (It was a bit funny how our sales had a major upward spike for a few weeks after.)

But to get to the more interesting points, one of the things the FDA was most specific about in the letter was a link posted at the site to a remarkable study done by The American Association for Cancer Research. The study was on on Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadendis) as an anti-cancer substance.

Remember, all I did was leave a link to this study on my site. The study ended many of its paragraphs (including the very first one) with, "We suggest Sanguinaria be developed as an anti-cancer drug"; I simply pointed this fact out and this drove the FDA absolutely crazy!

About a year before I got the FDA letter, The National Cancer Institute (Pretending to be the "FTC" - Federal Trade Commission) e-mailed me and told me that I must remove the link to the study because it was not "Conclusive". Well even if it was not conclusive (which it is), it was not my study and not my website! It was only a link to The American Association for Cancer Research. This very study is still posted at the AACR and can be seen here: ( . Check out the end of the first paragraph, it is a very interesting study. The FDA sure did not make the AACR remove it. Gee, I wonder why? By the way, when I emailed the "FTC" back, the email address read, "Cancer.Gov" and had nothing to do with the FTC's email address.

I noticed that Bloodroot was one of the most common denominators in all of the 25 warning letters from the FDA. Why (I have always asked) is the FDA so upset with Bloodroot? Is it a terrible threat to the Cancer Industry? Please read "Who controls the Cancer Industry?" at The Tonic Herbal Times: ( .

I was lucky in the fact that only about 1% of my web site dealt with cancer herbs at the time so I simply removed any link to cancer as a subject. (Although I still have Bloodroot and Essiac Tea listed there with no mention of cancer.)

However, many of the 25 sites that were attacked had their whole business based on anti-cancer herbs! I feel terrible for these innocent people that have worked so hard to make an honest living providing people with great alternative help and now their businesses are in ruin because of a little "hissy fit" that the FDA threw. I would love to see a class-action lawsuit in favor of these people.

I can not begin to tell you how many healings I have seen from bloodroot on both humans and animals! I used to get skin cancers on my own "Irish skinned face" once in a while and I would simply dab some Bloodroot tincture on them - in a day or two they would be gone! (I guess I can say that here since this is not my site.)

Since I have had my hands in Bloodroot tincture at least once a week for the last two years (from manufacturing it) I have not seen anymore skin cancers on my face.

But to get back to Chinese Medicine (LOL!), I am simply amazed at the power many Chinese tonic herbs, including many mushrooms, have in preventing and sometimes restoring health to a cancerous situation.

Herbs like Jaio Gu Lan and He Shou Wu are some of the best preventative herbs and my favorite mushroom for the immune system when dealing with cancer or preventing it is Reishi combined with Huang Qi (we call this "Strong Defense" on our website).

Studies on some common Chinese herbs like Huang Qin (Scutellaria radix, 黃芩) as used against cancer can be seen at the Chinese Medicine News by going here: (

However the most amazing thing I have seen in my life as far as Chinese Medicine and cancer was the discovery that a common herb called Qing Huo (Artemisia annua or "Sweet Annie") had amazing anti-cancer qualities.

I have used this herb in formula many times on people against fever and by itself against Malaria. It is most likely the very best substance known to work against malaria fever and can also be taken to prevent Malaria. However I had no idea that it would show up as an anti-cancer drug!

Here is a link to a page with pictures of the plant and many links From the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health to studies showing that the drug companies already have a synthetic version of this and how they have "proven" this to cure cancer! Please go here to see it: ( .

"Synthetic Drugs" as many of you know, will not cure anything in the long run. Please see Mike Adam's great cartoon that tells it all by going here: ( .

The biggest problem with the drug companies pulling this off is that good ol' "Sweet Annie" is an "escaped weed" inexpensive and easy to harvest, and grows wild all over the world now! What are you going to do, Drug Thugs? Run around with weed killer and kill every one of these plants in the world? (We have this herb in 5:1 extract capsules at our site but it is only listed under fevers and Malaria to keep the FDA from having another fit.)

However the drug company's over whelming interest in this plant is testimony that many whole plants used as cancer treatment are unmistakably waiting just around the corner to once and for all heal the nations from the tyrannical government / drug lord control of our health.

Always remember the last line in Mike's cartoon: "God said, "the whole plants, not the holy plants!"

Chris Gussa: "Plant Cures is currently working with over 9,000 medicinal plants to bring about healing through the true science of combining the whole energies of whole plants. A plants energy is from its whole part. (flowers, fruit, leaves, stems, roots etc) While the "science" of seeing some of the isolated molecular constituents in food and herbs can be interesting at times, there is no "one magic ingredient" in any plant. (You would think it would be science trying to tell you this type of logic, instead of me) But no! They would rather play this childish game of trying to find the "Pot of gold" in a plant so they can synthesize it and dazzle the FDA with a "New Drug" that will most likely cause the usual death and destruction!
