Responding to FDA Assaults
Action Item: http://tinyurl.com/FDApowerabuse
Armed Govt Agents Raid Amish Dairies, Raw Food Co-ops and Health Food Stores... As the Raids Intensify, our Health and Food Freedom is Threatened... Meanwhile, the Increases in Factory "Phude" (Looks Like Food, But It Ain't) Disease Exposes the Failures of the Federalization of Food Safety!
9.8.11 Update: FDA Extends Comment Period for its NDI Guidance for 60 days -"ROCKVILLE, Md.—FDA extended the comment period for its New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) Draft Guidance by 60 days to Dec. 2, 2011. The extension came one month after five industry trade organizations requested FDA to extend the comment period by 45 days..." http://www.naturalproductsinsider.com/news/2011/09/fda-extends-ndi-draft-guidance-comment-period-by.aspx
Although we fought hard to make sure language was kept in the 2007 bill "exempting" dietary supplements, the DSHEA Exemption, (and you sent over 150,000 emails in one weekend!) we were not holding out much hope that this massive increase in FDA power would not be used against our freedom of choice... despite the fact the the law is clear and the statute had specific exemption language. We were specially worried about language in the Act that would let FDA ban interstate commerce in any FOOD that had ever been studied for medical use.
That's right, Congress gave FDA authority to ban any food... why? Indeed, why would Congress believe it had power under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution to control what food free Americans grow and use? We leave the answer to such questions to the philosophers and psychiatrists...
Dr. Ron Paul (R - TX):
Giving FDA more authority is giving
"FDA power to abuse..."
Sure enough, the ink of President Bush's signature was barely dry when FDA moved to ban the first supplement under the new law. At the behalf of a drug company (they called it a "citizen petition") FDA banned a form of Vitamin B6 that has been continually available for decades. This form of B6 happens to be the most bioavailable, thus the drug company "studied" it and then decided NOT to market it, but rather seek govt help in banning it!
How did FDA "get around" the DSHEA Exemption? It announced that none of the vitamin companies and advocates objecting to the ban had "proven" that this particular form of B6 had been "sold to supplement the diet" prior to the "grandfathering" cut off date in 1994. The listing of this form of B6 in the "Old Dietary Ingredients" list posted on the FDA website was not to be considered proof anymore! This new regulation threatens every nutrient innovation since 1994... and maybe before!
We warned that the Vitamin B6 precedent would threaten all dietary supplement advances since '94. Fast-forward to 2011... FDA announces a new guideline on New Dietary Ingredients which takes the B6 precedent and codifies this for all nutrients. Remember, FDA restricts what people can say about nutrients and then uses its new powers to ban those nutrients. This is a Freedom of Speech Issue. Here is what Life Extension says about this:
The FDA has just issued a proposed mandate that will enable the government to ban the most effective dietary supplements you are now taking.
If this proposal is enacted, many fish oil formulas and natural plant extracts will be removed from the market until so-called safety testing is done. The FDA wants each nutrient company to force-feed laboratory animals the human equivalent of up to 240,000 milligrams a day of certain fish oils. This outlandish dose will injure the test animals and give the FDA an excuse to outlaw the supplement.
How can the FDA do this? They are seeking to reclassify the natural supplements you now take as "food additives." This gives the FDA power to mandate outrageous safety thresholds that have no relationship to the scientifically validated doses of nutrients you take every day.
Why are they doing this? Because these natural products work too well. Take curcumin as an example. It has been shown to inhibit a deadly transcription factor in cells called nuclear factor-kappa beta (NF-kB) that is responsible for immune system regulation. Over-expression of NF-kB is linked with tumor cells that resist normal cell growth and maturation, as well as inflammation.
Pharmaceutical companies want to own the exclusive rights to these kinds of plant extracts that are freely sold on the market today. They don’t want consumers to be able to obtain these biological benefits in low-cost supplements. Instead, they want to patent synthetic versions as high-priced prescription drugs!
We know what the FDA wants to do... stop us from making what they and their drug company friends think are "bad" decisions... What is the law, however? Here is what the Supreme Court said in Thompson v Western States (535 U.S. 357 - 2002):
"If the First Amendment means anything, it means that regulating speech must be a last - not first - resort... We have previously rejected the notion that the Government has an interest in preventing the dissemination of truthful commercial information in order to prevent members of the public from making bad decisions with the information... Even if the Government did argue that it had an interest in preventing misleading advertisements, this interest could be satisfied by the far less restrictive alternative of requiring each ... to be labeled with a warning that the [product] had not undergone FDA testing and that its risks were unknown..."Once again, the FDA is abusing power Congress wrongfully granted to this oppressive agency! Once again, our Health and Food Freedoms are under assault! We initiated a new Action Item to reply to this latest FDA attack on health and food and urge everyone to "take it viral" and flood decision makers with your concerns! In addition, we have several other current relevant Action Items we urge you to use daily!
WE TOLD YOU SO!!!
NOW ARE YOU READY TO GET SERIOUS????
Let's face it. We need a staff devoted to keeping the attack, and the attackers, straight.
Food. Nukes. GMOs. Vaccines. Compulsory Drugging. Medical Privacy. Chipping. TSA/DHS Radiation Exposure. FDA Raids.
The list goes on and on
"No! No! Not ANOTHER one!" some people say -- as one person did, in fact, say, during the chat session at www.HealthFreedomPortal.org during this week's edition of the Dr. Rima Reports,
"Yes, Yes, and there will be more. Many more, I am sorry to tell you."
You see, if you watch the Globalist Agenda, http://youtu.be/_gWmVtn5JsA, you'll hear the plan. If you have been one of those folks who denies that it could be real, or happen, or be anything other than a "CONSPIRACY THEORY" despite the data that turns it into a "CONSPIRACY FACT", then perhaps, perhaps, this assualt by State and Federal agencies working in concert at 3 locations on one morning, might just, possibly, be enough to shake the scales from your eyes and get youIncensedAnd ready to take back - yes, it has been lost, but can be reclaimed - your
HorrifiedFreedomThat's right, all of them. The Constitution of the US was shredded by the Rawsome Food Co-op raids. What is left? Rags and tatters of the hemp parchment upon which it was written.
Ownership of Your Body
Control of the Government
Amendments: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XIII...
Had enough? Believe us now? OK
Here is the plan1. Take the following Action Items Every Day for Every Member of Your Family. Every Day
2. Commit to informing, AND ACTIVATING 10 people to do the same (that is, taking the actions and activating 10 other people)
3. Set up a recurring donation for whatever your health freedom and constitutional rights are worth to you and you can afford (really afford, for patriot's sake) here: http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?page_id=189
And/or4. Invest in the NSFGreenFund, www.NSFGreenFund.org, to use the money that you would invest anyway, be it IRA, 401 or other monies, to support the activities of the Natural Solutions Foundation AND make a return. For our supporters, this private expressive association has made it affordable by setting very low minimum investments for monthly or lump sum investments (which can be pooled by several people) and adding a bonus value of 6% to your investment. Check it out. The money is for freedom. AND you get a return on your bonded, insured principle.
OK. That's it. No guns, mud, freezing conditions at Valley Forge. Just Freedom Mice and Freedom Money. How very 21st Century! How very essential. Too much trouble? Not enough interest? Really? With your DNA and your future at stake?
I know you'll do the right thing because you have read this far. If you don't, along with enough others, you have chosen to enslave yourself.
slave - [sleyv] noun, verb, slaved, slav·ing. noun - 1.a person who is the property of and wholly subject to another; a bond servant. 2.a person entirely under the domination of some influence or person: a slave to a drug. 3.a drudge: a housekeeping slave. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/slave
