FTC orders Daniel Chapter One to lie to customers about cancer remedies; ministry defends health freedom

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is at war with online retailers of nutritional supplements and natural remedies, but it recently lost a major battle: Lane Labs, which has suffered under FTC and FDA tyranny for years, recently won a significant battle against the corrupt agency. After the FTC tried to sue Lane Labs for $24 million, claiming "contempt of court" for the company telling the truth about the efficacy of its products, a federal judge ruled against the FTC, explaining that Lane Labs was telling the scientifically-validated truth about its products when it described their health benefits.

This defeat of the FTC's latest attempt to censor the truth about nutritional supplements is making waves in the nutrition industry. It signals a crack in the wall of FTC tyranny and a possible route for establishing Free Speech for nutritional supplement companies that only seek to tell the truth about their products.

In the world of truth-telling, no one speaks the truth about natural remedies more openly and honorably than a small company called Daniel Chapter One (, a religious ministry that also sells anti-cancer herbs, many of which are advocated in the Bible and other religious writings. Supported by a radio show and a website, Daniel Chapter One dares to tell people the truth about its natural remedies, even in the face of extreme intimidation and threats from the FTC.

The FTC is demanding that Daniel Chapter One lie to all its customers by signing and distributing a document claiming their natural cancer remedies do not work. That same document would also direct customers to the National Cancer Institute -- a pro-Pharma government group engaged in widespread scientific fraud and public disinformation campaigns (the NCI runs ads warning people to avoid all sunlight, for example, promoting widespread vitamin D deficiencies).

Daniel Chapter One needs your support, and it's an organization worth fighting for. They are, in essence, taking point position on a very dangerous mission, working to break the FTC's iron grip and restore Free Speech rights to the entire industry. Although Jim and Trish have been threatened with imprisonment, having their products confiscated, having their ministry raided and shut down and being fined millions of dollars, they have held firm in their belief that telling the truth about medicinal herbs is their God-given right.

Today, Daniel Chapter One finds itself embattled against the federal government, standing virtually alone in an industry where most companies are too intimidated to stand up for their own rights. To help promote health freedom, they've launched another website called Daniel Chapter One Freedom (, and I encourage you to join their email newsletter on that site. Write your representatives in Washington, too, to insist that the FTC end their attempts to silence and intimidate not just Daniel Chapter One but other nutritional supplement companies as well.

The FTC's attack on Daniel Chapter One is more than just an assault on Free Speech, by the way: It's also an assault on religious freedom. The organization is a ministry, after all, but that hasn't stopped the FTC from threatening to imprison its founders.
