1. Telephone con artists who scam senior citizens out of their life savings would be put in charge of direct-to-consumer drug advertising. (Explanation: Senior citizens are being financially exploited by drug companies who use direct-to-consumer advertising to con people into asking their doctors for drugs they don't even need.)

2. All murderers would be set free as long as they carried a large warning label that said, "Warning: I may kill you." (Explanation: The FDA allows prescription drugs with fatal side effects to remain perfectly legal as long as they carry warnings that most people simply ignore.)

3. Convicted drug dealers would be given medical degrees and allowed to write prescriptions. (Explanation: The FDA and U.S. authorities aren't against all drugs, they're only against the drugs they can't control. Many prescription drugs are far more dangerous to the human body than marijuana, for example.)

4. Car thieves would be given new jobs stealing phytochemical discoveries from medicinal plants in the Amazon rainforest that could be patented and sold as monopoly drugs. (Explanation: Drug companies frequently exploit natural medicinal compounds in plants, then modify and patent them for manufacturing prescription drugs, even while discrediting the healing potential of the very same medicinal plants. Lovastatin, for example, was stolen from red yeast rice, a natural supplement that lowers LDL cholesterol. Ephedrine, the active ingredient in Sudafed, was copied from ephedra, a medicinal herb that has now been outlawed by the FDA even while Sudafed remains perfectly legal.)

5. All rapists would be given four years to run free before being taken off the streets, even though they were known to be dangerous. (Explanation: The FDA allows dangerous drugs to remain on the market for years, with hundreds of thousands of people being injured by them, before issuing a recall. Rezulin and Vioxx are just two of many such examples. Antidepressant drugs and statin drugs are probably next in line.)

6. Convicted white collar criminals and accounting fraud artists would be given top jobs at pharmaceutical companies. Unless, of course, they already work there. (No explanation needed.)

7. Drug smugglers would be shot on sight, but only if they are smuggling legal prescription drugs from Canada. (Explanation: The FDA continues to try to ban prescription drugs from Canada in the hopes of protecting the profits of U.S. drug companies. In one case, a bus load of American senior citizens was detained and searched by FDA employees for drugs. Not illegal drugs, mind you, but prescription drugs.)

8. All felons serving time in prison would be set free. Why? The FDA would claim that no particular felon could be considered dangerous, since all felons are dangerous. (Explanation: The FDA defends the safety of obviously dangerous drugs by explaining that all drugs are dangerous. Therefore, the thinking goes, you can't single out any particular drug as being especially dangerous, so they should all remain on the market. Bizarre logic, huh?)

9. All crimes would be declared legal, but only if committing those crimes generated revenues for powerful corporations. (Explanation: Pharmaceutical companies are allowed to commit all sorts of crimes against the public in terms of compromising public safety, lying to consumers in drug ads, and distorting drug trials to achieve a desired outcome. It's all allowed by the FDA, with virtually no regulatory response, as long as profits continue to flow.)

10. Free speech about health and medicine would be outlawed in a Senate bill sponsored by Sen. Orrin Hatch. After all, the FDA doesn't want people to be exposed to any "dangerous" ideas or information that might question the agency's authority. The list you're reading right now would be the first item to be outlawed, followed by a China-style internet filtering system that would suppress all non-FDA-approved text across the entire world wide web.

This effort is dedicated to Dr. David Graham, a genuine American hero. As a chief drug safety researcher for the FDA, Dr. Graham has shown enormous courage and dedication to his professional responsibilities in standing up against the FDA and telling the truth about dangerous prescription drugs. Dr. Graham, if you ever get blackballed by the FDA and Big Pharma, just talk to Newstarget.com. We have lots of options for you...

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
