Anti-Quackwatch "Defamation" Litigation ROARS Forward...

- Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

Thursday, February 1st, 2007

It's not easy, these days, being a "quackbuster." What with the (1) public humiliation surrounding recent High Court decisions (2) rejection by the US Court System of "quackbuster" "expert witnesses," (3) pointed questioning of "quackbuster" credentials (3) internet, and other successful public challenges, of the quacker's activities, and much more, the "quackbusters" have really fallen on hard times.

The "quackbuster" flagship, the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF), sank beneath the waves in 2003, after the NCAHF lost several lawsuits in California including (1) the NCAHF v. King Bio case - where delicensed MD Stephen Barrett and Wallace Sampson MD, the author of the presumptuous "Scientific Review of alternative and Aberrant Medicine" were officially declared to be "biased, and unworthy of credibility," (2) in a separate action the NCAHF was tagged with over $100,000 in attorney fees they can't pay, and (3) The NCAHF lost their 501C(3) non-profit status in California.

It appears that, now, the NCAHF is run out of cardboard box in the back room of Robert Baratz's, it's President-For-life, hair removal salon in Peabody, Massachusetts. Apparently, no NCAHF Board meetings have been held since 2003 - and there are none planned.

But those problems seem to be just stage dressing for the beleaguered group. It's the currently lawsuits filed against them, and those they can't extricate themselves from, that tell the real story - and they tell the story with flair.

---------------

This "Millions of Health Freedom Fighters - Newsletter" is a NON-COMMERCIAL email newsletter about the politics of "Health Care" on Planet Earth. It talks about the raging battle between the forces of "Health" and "Medicine." In the US, the ultra-expensive "Medical System" has failed. It is the NUMBER ONE killer of Americans - ahead of heart disease and cancer. That failing system protects itself, and attacks its critics viciously. But, there are literally, "Millions" of people forcing change on that system.

This newsletter is about all of that. Tim Bolen is an op/ed writer with extensive knowledge, and contacts, on this subject.

A copy of THIS newsletter, and about four hundred previous ones, are viewable at the websites http://www.bolenreport.net, and http://www.quackpotwatch.org/index.html.
