Who We Are
ReformFDA.org is a program of the American Association for Health Freedom. Although AAHF is the sponsor of this site and petition drive, we work in concert with numerous other organizations to create a new and better FDA, and beyond that, a healthcare system which is both effective and sustainable.
Founded in 1992, AAHF opposes medical monopolies and one-size-fits-all medicine. We support the right of the consumer to choose his or her own doctor and also to incorporate diet and supplements as well as drugs into a personal healthcare plan, an approach which is also known as “integrative medicine.” In order to preserve integrative healthcare and medicine, it is also necessary to protect integrative doctors from unreasonable attacks from competing medical groups and their licensing boards, but also to maintain strong consumer protections against fraud or deception.
AAHF pursues its mission by educating the public, press, and decision-makers; forming and participating in citizen coalitions; acting as a government watchdog and filing comments on proposed rules and rulings; monitoring, crafting, and where necessary lobbying for legislation at the federal and state level; and initiating legal responses (lawsuits, amicus briefs, legal petitions).
Our members include consumers, doctors, and other healthcare practitioners. For more information about AAHF, its board and its staff, please visit – www.healthfreedom.net
We believe that the FDA is a broken agency that needs a complete reform and restructuring. As presently run, it:
Obstructs medical science and innovation;
Forbids and censors the communication of legitimate, peer reviewed scientific research;
Protects entrenched medical monopolies which pay its bills and hire its employees;
Interferes with the rights of consumers to learn about good science (especially relating to food and supplements) that could prolong and save lives and promote health;
And unnecessarily drives up the cost of healthcare to the point where employers can no longer afford to hire and the entire American economy is threatened.
What is needed under these circumstances is not incremental reform, but complete reform, a thorough overhaul of every part of the FDA. The purpose of reformfda.org is to persuade the American public and Congress that a total reform of the FDA is absolutely necessary in order to rebuild the American healthcare system and make it once again the envy of the world.
