Fake Food Safety Bill Still a Threat

This email exchange raises some of the issues that suggest the pending fake "Food Safety" bill -- S.510 -- is being engineered by the "Bigs" -- Big Pharma, Big Agra, et al, to do exactly what we've feared: nationalize all food production.

The key here is the curious comment on Snopes that the bill "only" controls Interstate Commerce. Any student of US Constitutional law knows that the Federal courts have, for over 75 years, given such a broad definition to that concept that ALL food production is covered (including in recent cases, home gardens), so when Snopes says "don't worry..." it's time to worry!

Action Item: tell the Senate that we want S.510 defeated. We want, at a minimum, very strong protective language as stated in the Petition:

The "food safety" bill that actually passed the House last July was HR.4739 -- it has an exemption for direct farm to consumer sales. No other protection.

The bill that was "marked-up" in the Senate HELP committee last November was S.510 which has no protection for anyone.

All of these bills can be checked on and doing so will show which was passed and which were not...

Various business groups are now supporting S.510 claiming that the "Manager's Amendment" includes protection for DSHEA products. That Amendment is not on so I cannot comment on it, other than to say that we thought the DSHEA exemption in Ted Kennedy's FDA Amendment bill in 2007 would protect nutrients from FDA abuse of power... but it hasn't (see the banning of one form of B-6 and the planned banning of another, both at the behest of "Citizen Petitions" from drug companies seeking to outlaw the competition).

Without strong protection and with unlimited power to FDA to issue whatever regulations it chooses (and the power to keep those guidelines secret!!) the only organic garden that will be left will likely be Mrs. Obama's!

Our bullet points on S.510 are at:

It is rather sad that Snopes is so often nothing more than a shill for the Bigs...

Oath Keepers Endorsement Published

I am honored to announce that my endorsement of has been published at their site:

Thereat I wrote:

Dr. Andrew Wakefield: Medical Hero

I am reproducing Dr. Wakefield's statement regarding his persecution by the Vaccine Pushers. Our gratitude to Dr. Wakefield and his colleagues for standing up for the children and against the Big Pharma propaganda offensive.

Statement from Dr. Andrew Wakefield Regarding GMC Hearing Sanctions

On Wednesday April 7th, General Medical Council (GMC) lawyers will demand that I and likely two other doctors involved in the MMR-autism case should be erased from the UK’s medical register, removing our license to practice medicine. Doctors’ regulators have found the three of us - Professor John Walker-Smith, Professor Simon Murch and me - guilty of undertaking research on children with autism without approval from an ethics committee.
We can prove, with extensive documentary evidence, that this conclusion is false.

Let me make it absolutely clear that, at its heart, the GMC hearing has been about the protection of MMR vaccination policy. The case has been driven by an agenda to crush dissent that in my opinion serves the government and the pharmaceutical industry — not the welfare of children. It’s important to note that there has never been a complaint against any of the doctors by any parent involved in this case — only universal parental support and gratitude.

My colleagues, Professors Walker-Smith and Murch, are outstanding pediatricians and pediatric gastroenterologists. They have led the field of pediatric gastroenterology for decades, devoting their lives to caring for sick children. Our only “crime” in this matter has been to listen to the concerns of parents, act according to the demands of our professional training, and provide appropriate care to this neglected population of children. It is unthinkable that at the end of an unimpeachable career, Professor Walker-Smith would even consider unethical experimentation on children under his care.

In the course of our work, we discovered and treated a new intestinal disease syndrome in children with autism, alleviating suffering in affected children around the world. This should be cause for celebration. Instead, we have been vilified in the press, and demonized by a wasteful PR campaign by the Department of Health. The aim of this negative publicity was to discredit my criticism of vaccine safety research.

Sadly, my colleagues have suffered severe collateral damage in this effort to prevent valid scientific enquiry. They should be exonerated, and left alone with their reputations intact, in the certain knowledge that they have done only what is right.

The loss of my own medical license is, unfortunately, the cost of doing business. Although I do not take this loss lightly, the suffering - so much of it unnecessary - that I have seen among those affected by this devastating disease makes the professional consequences for me a small price to pay by comparison.

As long as a question mark remains over vaccine safety; as long as a safety-first vaccine policy is subordinate to profit and self-interest; as long as the benefits of vaccines are threatened by those who have compromised public confidence by denial of vaccine damage, and as long as these children need help; I will continue my work.

Dr Andrew Wakefield is an academic gastroenterologist, committed to understanding more about the role of intestinal inflammation and dysfunction in childhood developmental disorders. He is involved in a new initiative, focused specifically on issues of autism causation. His book Callous Disregard comes out in May 2010.
