Natural Remedy victory over Big Pharm

WASHINGTON, April 11 /U.S. Newswire/ — "The FDA has certainly never seen a public response like the one that is currently being launched by concerned citizens who want their medical freedom protected from a possible monopoly by pharmaceutical companies such as Wyeth," said Steven F. Hotze, MD, director of Project: FANS — a grassroots effort to protect Americans' access to safe, natural medical solutions — in response to news that the FDA has extended the public comment period on the so-called citizen's complaint filed by the $14-billion pharmaceutical conglomerate Wyeth against bio-identical hormones. "Thanks to the swift and direct action of Americans nationwide, the FDA has extended the public comment period on this debate until May 4, 2006, in order to allow for further investigation. This is a sizeable victory against Big Pharma and its cronies in both Congress and the FDA."

Project: FANS has been at the forefront of the effort to protect patients' rights from the machinations of pharmaceutical companies that are seeking to gain complete control of the health market by limiting or eliminating Americans' freedom to chose natural medical solutions, like Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). "The fact that, in a few short days, nearly 40,000 Americans expressed their dissatisfaction with the Wyeth complaint and their preference for bio-identical hormones over dangerous drugs like Premarin and Prempro speaks for itself," continued Dr. Hotze. "The bottom line is that Americans do not want the federal government interfering with their medical freedoms, especially when the proposed 'solution' is perceived to favor a pharmaceutical company's bottom line over the individual's health.

"There is still much work to be done," stated Hotze. "We plan to continue our public education program and increase our efforts to convince Congress and the FDA to protect medical freedoms through our online petition and direct contact from the grassroots." Project: FANS' online petition calling on the U.S. Congress to support Americans' freedom of access to natural medical solutions can be viewed at .
