"The inherent assumption behind licensing of medical practitioners is that people are too stupid to determine who is capable of helping them resolve their health problems. Are we really that stupid? Or is it a matter of small groups of people taking control over areas of commerce to create monopolies for themselves?"
"If I want to utilize a particular type of health practice, by what right does the government tell me that I can’t? Who has the right to presume to understand my needs better than I do myself?"
"Things have now gone so far that a man who produces a website about diabetes and nutrition—a man who cured himself of diabetes through nutrition—is under threat by the state of North Carolina for practicing as a nutritionist without a license."
"Why should Steve or anyone else be required to get a license to give advice? No one’s forcing anyone to follow it."
This is a much needed conversation we should have - are we or are we not capable of making decisions ourselves.
Just like licensing to practice medicine, there are laws to "control" nutrients, herbs and other medicines. The question is who profits. The answer: a business monopoly on "treatment" (NOT prevention and NOT healing)...
