In a nutshell.... The government (FDA, FCC, etc.) enforces certain orthodoxy when it comes to matters of health. You may not realize this, but a drug is defined as ANY SUBSTANCE that is used to diagnose, treat, mitigate, or prevent a disease. In other words, anything that effects health, magically becomes a "drug" and only doctors are allowed to legally prescribe or recommend "drugs" so anyone who talks about health who believes that Health Is Not Pharmaceutical runs a risk of offending the laws of the medical orthodoxy.
Free Speech permits me to voice my opinions, but this gets tricky in a commercial arena. I can say, "Prunes can relieve constipation". But if I have a store or website that sells prunes, then my statement has positioned the Prunes as a "drug". Prunes are not approved as a drug for constipation and now I have "crossed the line". I know this sounds silly but this is the way that the medical industry attempts to silence their critics under the guise of fighting "quackery".
