Gordon Pederson, who owns My Doctor Suggests LLC and GP Silver LLC, is being accused of making false claims about the alleged benefits of colloidal silver in treating the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) since the supplement has never been proven effective against it.
Though anecdotal reports suggest that colloidal silver may help against the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), the federal government sees things differently and has issued a temporary restraining order against Pederson and his companies demanding that he stop "defrauding" United States consumers with his products.
Among the claims that the DoJ is taking issue with include the suggestion that colloidal silver will "usher" out any coronavirus that might be lingering in the bloodstream. Pederson also claimed that "Alkaline Structured Silver will destroy the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) once it gets into the body, its silver nanoparticles preventing the virus from attaching to cells."
Because Pederson followed this up with the definitive claim that Alkaline Structured Silver can thus "prevent the disease totally and completely," the DoJ is in agreement with the complaint that this is a false and unsubstantiated claim that cannot be made.
"The Department of Justice will take swift action to protect consumers from those who would recklessly exploit this public health crisis by offering phony cure-alls for the treatment and prevention of COVID-19," stated Assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt of the DoJ's Civil Division.
"We work closely with our partners at the Food and Drug Administration and will move quickly to shut down schemes that promote and sell unlawful products during this pandemic."
In addition to ordering Pederson to stop selling his silver products, the federal court has also issued a freeze on all of Pederson's assets, including not just his businesses but also his bank accounts and even his website. This is said to be temporary, and a hearing on the government's request for a preliminary injunction has been set for May 12, 2020.
In the meantime, Pederson is basically jobless like millions of other Americans who have been ordered to lockdown at home in order to "flatten the curve." This is Big Pharma fascism in action, in other words, and a full-scale assault on free speech and the First Amendment, which is nothing new when it comes to American citizens making health claims about things other than drugs and vaccines.
Earlier in the month, the FDA went after a slew of other companies that also sell colloidal silver products, demanding that they cease operations for selling "fraudulent products."
At least a dozen companies were told by the FDA to stop selling their "unapproved products" because they "violate the law." The FDA also threatened these companies with "seizures" and "injunctions" against their products and firms for refusing to comply.
"Seldom do you hear any complaint from the actual buyers of [these products]," wrote one Fox News commenter, speculating on the FDA's true agenda for stamping out natural alternatives to drugs and vaccines.
"I wonder about these low-hanging fruit cases when China is trying to biowarfare coronavirus, kill Americans, and wreck the free world economies, and not a slap on the hand."
