Montana Senate Passes Bill to Nullify FDA Restrictions

A bill passed unanimously by the Montana Senate today would effectively nullify some Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rules that prevent treatments from being used by terminally ill patients.

Senate Bill 142 (SB142) was introduced by Sen. Cary Smith as the Montana Right to Try Act on Jan. 13. The bill was quickly moved to a hearing and executive session vote in the Senate Committee on Public Health, Welfare and Safety, where it passed 7-0. And today, the Montana Senate took the measure up, passing it unanimously, 47-0.

According to the sponsor, Sen. Smith, there was widespread support for his bill, with over 70 co-sponsors, and many of those “getting on board early.”

If passed into law, a patient suffering from a terminal disease attested to by a physician and who has considered all other approved treatment options would be able to try experimental treatments or drugs not yet approved by the FDA, effectively nullifying this narrow, but important set of federal restrictions.

SB142 also prohibits any state official, employee, or agent from blocking or attempting to block an eligible patient’s access to an investigational product. In other words, if the FDA wants to stop this from happening in Montana, they won’t be able to rely on help from the state, which is usually the case with enforcement actions.

Physicians are protected under the bill as well. SB142 prohibits any licensing board from taking action to revoke, suspend, sanction, fail to renew, or take any other action against a physician’s license solely based on such physician’s recommendation, prescription, or treatment of an eligible patient with an investigational product.

SB142 makes up part of a greater trend promoting medical freedom sweeping the nation. During this most recent November election, Arizona residents approved Prop. 303, known as the Arizona Terminal Patients’ Right to Try Referendum….

Legislatures in Colorado, Michigan, Missouri, and Louisiana, have already passed Right to Try Laws similar to the Arizona amendment, and more than 20 states are considering such measures in 2015, with the Wyoming Senate passing a similar measure unanimously last week.

Although these laws only address one small aspect of FDA regulation, they provide us with a clear model demonstrating how to nullify federal statutes that violate the Constitution….

Cancer doctor admits false diagnosis to profit selling toxic chemotherapy

If you were to travel the world trying to search out the most insidious con artists, scammers, hucksters and quacks, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone worse than a pharma-centric oncology doctor. These are the highly-paid hucksters that poison people to death while pretending to sell them “treatment” for a disease they very often don’t even have in the first place.

Case in point: the U.S. Department of Justice’s prosecution of Dr. Fata, who was arrested and charged with twelve counts of “Health Care Fraud” and another county of “Conspiracy to Pay and Receive Kickbacks.”

As explained by naturopathic doctor Dave Mihalovic on PreventDisease.com [1], Dr. Fata was “a prominent cancer doctor in Michigan who admitted in court one year ago to intentionally and wrongfully diagnosing healthy people with cancer. Fata also admitted to giving them chemotherapy drugs for the purpose of making a profit.”

The article goes on to report:

“It is my choice,” Fata said on Tuesday of his surprise guilty plea, which included rattling off the names of numerous drugs he prescribed for his patients over the years. In each admission, he uttered these words:

“I knew that it was medically unnecessary.”

Fata was charged with running a $35-million Medicare fraud scheme that involved billing the government for medically unnecessary oncology and hematology treatments. The government says Fata ran the scheme from 2009 to the present, through his medical businesses, including Michigan Hematology Oncology Centers, with offices in Clarkston, Bloomfield Hills, Lapeer, Sterling Heights, Troy and Oak Park.

According to the government, Fata had a patient load of 1,200 people and received $62 million from Medicare; he billed for more than $150 million.

Dr. Fata, like countless other oncologists, used highly unethical scare tactics to trick patients into agreeing to expensive chemotherapy they don’t even need. The point of all this is to bill Medicare for millions in toxic chemotherapy treatments, raking in obscene profits while sending patients home with permanently damaged livers, kidneys and brains… all documented side effects of toxic chemotherapy….
