Whole Foods’ CEO says what ANH has been saying all along: the best way to transform healthcare is for Americans not to need healthcare in the first place. Action Alert!
In an interview with Freakonomics Radio, Whole Foods’ CEO, John Mackey said, “The best solution is not to need healthcare. The best solution is to change the way people eat, the way they live, the lifestyle, and diet. There’s no reason why people shouldn’t be healthy and have a longer health span. A bunch of drugs is not going to solve the problem.”
We couldn’t agree more.
Consider this. Using government recommendations, Americans are getting only:
75% of necessary magnesium
54% of necessary vitamin E
68% of necessary vitamin A
19% of necessary vitamin D
No one pays any attention to these statistics. Why? Because under federal law, as interpreted by the FDA and FTC, we are not allowed to hear that a lack of vitamin D leads to weak bones, immune system deficiencies, and from there to death from COVID-19, other illnesses, and cancer.
University research demonstrates that natural, diet-derived medicines work, but because naturally-occurring substances cannot be patent protected in the same way as new to nature drugs, companies cannot afford the billions it takes to win FDA approval for them. Without FDA approval, natural medicines cannot claim to prevent, treat, or even “mitigate” diseases, so these medicines are not only excluded from organized medicine, but even made illegal. This has led to many unnecessary deaths from COVID-19 as well as other chronic illnesses.
The result is that promising natural treatments are completely ignored by our health system. If we have any hope of improving healthcare in this country, this arrangement needs to change.
Action Alert! Support our legislative proposal that seeks to reform a healthcare system that blocks access to natural treatments that generally cannot go through FDA approval. Please send your message immediately.

Natural medicine as you define it, works for somethings. It is not a cure all, as you seem to proclaim it is. There has to be a balance between natural medicine and pharmaceuticals. However, you do not have the right to decide what healthcare needs to look like for everyone, exclusively promote it, and spread false information about how it exclusively can cure cancer, autoimmune disease, etc.
The CEO of Wholefoods is saying what he said about natural medicine because it’s going to give him bigger profits, & allow him to keep his enormous salary and job with all the perks. That’s the bottom line.
Some of us have been living the healthy way for many years and I personally don’t want the federal government, (especially now), any where near the recommendations or blessing of healthy supplements or healthy eating. In fact, they can eliminate the FDA all together!
Whole foods is one of the biggest sellers of foods from china.
