The California State Senate, fed up with low quality "Standard
of Practice" health care in the state, passed a Cancer Reform Bill
on Friday, June 1, 2000. The bill eliminates the requirement in
California that all cancer treatment be "limited to chemotherapy,
radiation, and surgery," and opens the door to alternative medicine.
It was sponsored by California Citizens For Health, and backed by
the California Medical Association (CMA).
The backing of the bill by the CMA was not a surprise to health
freedom activists, because, unlike the American Medical Association
(AMA), the CMA is still controlled by practicing MDs - while the
AMA is controlled by the medical industry - a big difference.
The California "Cancer Reform Bill" heads for the California House
of Representatives this week, right on the heels of the Minnesota
and Arizona reform laws. Easy passage is expected. Minnesota's new
law sounds very, very, good... Maybe we could copy it here too.
