Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Award-winning Well TV contributor Kevin P. Miller explores the ongoing attempts made by multinational pharmaceutical and giant food companies, the World Trade Organization, and the World Health Organization in limiting public access to vitamins, herbs, and other alternative therapies that may not financially benefit anyone but the afflicted. Narrated by acclaimed U.K. actress Dame Judy Dench, We Become Silent follows in the tradition of Miller's previous documentary Let Truth Be the Bias. Released in 1994, Let Truth Be the Bias highlighted the U.S. government's role in silencing the information about the effectiveness of alternative medicines by exposing their role in an armed raid at the office of a holistic MD. As a result of that film, public support was gained for the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act (DSHEA), an act which defended the rights of U.S. consumers to pursue alternative health care.
