001. at cbc.ca, Vik Adhopia reports in "Homeopathic Remedies in Legal Hot Water in U.S. But Face Scant Canadian Pushback" [2017-05-13]:
"the U.S. is getting its act together on homeopathy [...] clinically unproven claims by makers of homeopathic treatments make them targets for class action lawsuits in the U.S. [...] companies selling homeopathic remedies are settling multi-million dollar lawsuits in the United States that allege their products are essentially worthless [...] lawyers allege consumers were 'misled into purchasing a placebo product' [...]";
super! Yet U.S. organized naturopathy particularly is actually claiming homeopathy is a "medicinal science". And that is quite evil and misleading.
"André Durocher, partner at Fasken Martineau, says the legal climate in the US makes consumer class actions, such as those against makers of homeopathic products, more likely [...] the Swiss-based Similasan Corporation is the latest to settle a class-action lawsuit. It has promised to refund American consumers who bought their products which include remedies for colds and anxiety. In their statement of claim, the litigants alleged homeopathic products 'are nothing more than placebos' [...] it's not the first time peddlers of commercial homeopathic remedies have ended up in court because of U.S. class-action lawyers [...] these types of suits frequently end in settlements [...] French homeopathic giant Boiron starting mailing out cheques in October 2015 as part of its US $5 million settlement [...] in February, Hyland's Homeopathic arrived at a settlement after being accused of making 'false and misleading claims' for its products for babies and children. Organic grocery giant Whole Foods, meantime, faces a US $5 million class action in Florida that alleges its house brand of homeopathic products are 'worthless.' Nutraceutical Corp, and Heel Inc also face class-action suits, and the list goes on [...] U.S. regulators cracking down [...]";
now, when will there be a class action against naturopathy as a clinical product and educational product? Naturopathy is funded in part by homeopathic companies.
"U.S. regulators may save makers of homeopathic remedies from themselves by preventing companies from making unsubstantiated health claims that open them up to lawsuits. In November 2016, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission issued a policy statement warning makers of these products that they must provide 'competent and reliable scientific evidence' to back any health claims being made. Since homeopathy isn't based on modern scientific principles, it's unclear how companies will adapt [...]";
well, they'll slither into a new guise.
002. a question relating to U.S. and Canada AANP-CAND naturopathy:
002.a. you've got these obviously false claims of efficacy for homeopathy from schools, practitioners, and even state .govs:
002.a1. a school:
NUHS states "gentle effective therapy";
002.a2. a practitioner from that school:
ND Luepker, NUHS 2002 and HAND president:
"the correct homeopathic medicine, the simillimum, stimulates the healing capacity of the mental state and physical body, and enables the person to achieve an optimal level of health";
002.a3. that school's .gov enablers:
002.b. how can they get away with this kind of false commerce???? Licensed falsehood marches on...
