(NaturalNews) Throughout 2011, health freedoms were under attack as both state and federal governments deliberately sought to criminalize foods, mandate vaccine injections and arrest parents who refused to subject their children to toxic conventional medical care.

Here are the top 10 health freedom stories of 2011, all reported here on NaturalNews:

#1 - Rawesome Foods infiltrated by FDA agents, then raided at gunpoint while government goons destroyed $50,000+ in wholesome food

It almost sounds like something out of North Korea, doesn't it? But it took place in Venice, California, where ego-maniac California Dept. of Agriculture agents conducted an armed raid, confiscated raw milk, then poured it all down the drain, thereby denying nutrition to the hungry infants and toddlers whose parents regularly buy that food. In a nation where children go hungry every day, it is especially notable that the government actively destroys food right in front of the citizens.

It didn't take long before the California "goons and tyrants" squad was outed, and we posted their names and employment details online:

Here are the key stories that reported on the Rawesome Foods raid as well as a timeline of FDA raids against farmers and food producers:

#2 - California Gov. Jerry Brown legalizes 12-year-old children to give "consent" to deadly vaccines

In a particularly insidious Big Brother power grab that cut parents out of the loop when it comes to injecting children with vaccines, Gov. Jerry Brown cemented his place in history as one of the most irrational, whored-out Big Pharma needle-slingers ever observed.

Thanks to Jerry "the vaccine pimp" Brown, hundreds of children will die in 2012 from HPV vaccines, and countless thousands will be neurologically damaged, forced to live out their lives as cripples. This is the new Jerry Brown legacy: Neurologically damaged children, lying half-dead in hospitals, screaming for help from a state that seems quite content to just murder them with bad medicine.

#3 - Detroit SWAT team threatens Maryanne Godboldo while state steals her child, then rapes her

Detroit mom Maryanne Godboldo had a hellish year in 2011, first with the state demanding to kidnap her daughter because Maryanne refused to keep drugging her with psychiatric drugs. When the cops came to forcibly kidnap her daughter at gunpoint, Maryanne said no (no means no, doesn't it?), so the cops brought in the SWAT team for a 12-hour standoff. Maryanne was charged with multiple felony counts and her teenage daughter was taken away, where she was raped by state employees and infected with a sexually-transmitted disease. This is called "juvenile caregiving" in Detroit.

Thanks in large part to the outcry from the alternative news media like NaturalNews and InfoWars, all charges were eventually dropped against Maryanne and her daughter was returned to her.

#4 - FDA tries to outlaw virtually all dietary supplements with new NDI regulations

2011 was the year the FDA unleashed its "nuclear option" against dietary supplements, attempting to outlaw virtually all such products by requiring supplement companies to seek "approval" for each ingredient they use in every formulated product they offer. If they use vitamin C in 10 products, for example, they would have to apply to the FDA for vitamin C approval ten times. Each application would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in research and effort, and the FDA could simply reject them all without any reason whatsoever.

This is how the FDA plans to put the entire natural products industry out of business, thereby forcing sick, diseased Americans to buy prescription medications that only make them even more diseased. (Repeat business, see?)

#5 - EU bans health claim that water prevents dehydration

In one of the most moronic anti health freedom stories of the year, the European Union ruled against the laws of nature and declared that water cannot prevent or treat dehydration. This decision was widely ridiculed across the internet, and it made the EU look even more ridiculous than anyone thought possible. (The average IQ of a bureaucrat in Brussels, it seems, is roughly equal to the winter temperature there. In Celsius!)
It also made millions realize more clearly why the EU is on the verge of collapse. No political union run by a cabal of babbling idiots in Brussels can possibly survive the test of time. And if they're uncontrollably IQ-impaired when considering the properties of an ordinary substance like water, imagine how idiotic their economic policies must be!

#6 - US Supreme Court surrenders its power to special vaccine court

2011 was the year that the Supreme Court declared it isn't supreme after all. Rather, it is subservient to the government-run vaccine court that functions as a "hush money" handout program to keep parents silent about how their children have been ravaged, maimed and even killed by vaccines.

#7 - The Raw Milk Freedom Riders commit heinous food crimes right in front of FDA headquarters

In an act of civil disobedience, the Raw Milk Freedom Riders ( openly committed "raw milk crimes" right in front of the FDA headquarters. (Gosh!)

Operating a caravan of "terrorist" mini vans stuffed full of moms and children, they openly consumed raw milk and cookies and demanded to be arrested by FDA tyrants. The FDA, predictably, did nothing, proving that their raw milk laws are so un-principled that they will never enforce them in broad daylight.

A few weeks later, however, the mainstream media did run a bunch of stories warning people about the terrible health dangers of raw cookie dough. So I guess they really are terrorists after all, huh? Milk AND cookies! That's like a terror weapon in each hand...

By the way, the FDA operates a network of undercover spies and infiltration agents who slink around like Gollum, muttering things to themselves and using spy cameras to film raw milk distribution centers:

#8 - Collecting rainwater now illegal in many U.S. states

Although we first published this story in 2010, it experience a resurgence of popularity in 2011, achieving nearly 100,000 Facebook shares as it went viral across the 'net.

What was the story about? How states like Utah, Colorado and Washington have taken steps to criminalize rainwater collection and thereby force citizens to rely on government-provided water sources (which are intentionally contaminated with chlorine and fluoride, by the way, just to poison people a little more).

#9 - Vegan parents in France charged with murdering their breastfed child

If you avoid toxic infant formula products and processed foods, you may be considered an enemy of the state! Only criminal parents dare to raise their children on wholesome, nutritious raw breast milk and unrefined plant-based food sources, didn't you know? Vegans must be terrorists, too!

#10 - California ballot initiative aims to require mandatory labeling of GMOs

Finally, there's some good news on the health freedom front. A group of activists has organized a fairly well-funded effort to force food companies to label the GMO content of all food products sold in California. Led by activists like Ronnie Cummins (Organic Consumers Association) and Jeffrey Smith (Institute for Responsible Technology), this effort will be viciously attacked in 2012 by food companies who are scrambling to keep American consumers totally ignorant about the GMO content of their foods.

They don't want people to know the truth about GMOs, you see, so they claim GMO labeling would "confuse" consumers. Actually, it would enlighten them! And it would force food companies to stop buying GMOs altogether, thereby ending the demand for GMOs and causing farmers to plant non-GMO crops. That's the whole point, of course:

NaturalNews, by the way, matched $15,000 in donations to the IRT from NaturalNews readers, achieving a total donation of over $30,000 to help fight GMOs. Throughout 2011, in fact, we made several key donations, and our non-profit Consumer Wellness Center awarded multi-thousand-dollar nutrition education grants to help teach women and children about nutrition:
