As we reported earlier, the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is boldly working to regulate your health care choices down to the level of third world countries; in effect, health-care rationing, as envisioned for you by your government and Codex. The Senate has passed (S. 1082, by a vote of 93-1) legislation which grants the FDA authority to regulate “food and food ingredients.” Today, July 10th, the House is poised to take testimony on the companion bill, H.R.2900 (presented unanimously out of committee) followed by a forced vote! YOU MUST TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION TO STOP THIS, OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR HEALTH FREEDOM!

Your outraged opposition to their recently proposed “Draft Guidance” caused the FDA to issue a statement that the public was clearly confused by that effort. After all, we all know no agency of the Executive Branch would defy the will of Congress and usurp powers not theirs by law.

You rightly objected to the FDA’s attempt to write its own ticket. The problem is, as was manifestly evident in the recent (In)comprehensi(ble) Immigration Reform Act debacle, your government would prefer you sit back, shut up, and let them take care of you. They alone are intelligent and informed enough to determine your best interest (especially as weighed against theirs).

In Bryon Richards’ recent article (http://www.newswithviews.com/Richards/byron36.htm), he noted “It is noteworthy that fascist governments of the past have eliminated health freedom and health options as a necessary condition to enslave and brainwash a population.”

Under the pretense of improved consumer safety, the FDA will be allowed to apply drug-related risk/benefit analyses to dietary supplements and have them removed from the market at their whim. As Mr. Richards so correctly notes, “Consumer safety could readily be guaranteed by simply having all companies test their final products for purity and potency. Instead of this simple approach the FDA has gone to the extreme of burdening the dietary supplement industry with regulations in excess of the drug industry! Supplements are foods, not drugs. The food industry couldn’t begin to comply with these FDA rules, even though food contamination is far more dangerous to health than dietary supplements.”

Additionally, “Numerous dietary supplement companies are anti-American and actively selling out our country and our constitution, working hand-in-glove with the FDA and Big Pharma. The majority of such companies can be found as members of CRN and NPA. It will be up to the American consumer to save the dietary industry from itself and preserve their own access to safe and effective natural health remedies.”

This legislative push to destroy your health care choices is being led by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and the Natural Products Association (NPA). The CRN is now mostly multinational drug and food companies, including Bayer, BASF, Cargill, Monsanto, Wyeth, and Archer Daniels Midland. Participating nutritional companies, commonly owned by or heavily invested in pharmaceutical companies, lead by such companies as Jarrow Formulas and Now Foods, and including Mannatech, Shacklee, Herbalife, GNLD International, The Vitamin Shoppe, and GNC. They believe eliminating their competition will position them well in the international market as part of the New World Order.

Mr. Richards rightly claims, “These globalist organizations are selling out America, destroying American jobs, undermining the U.S. Constitution, and working in conjunction with pharmaceutical companies to usher in Codex and the New World Order. Consumers of dietary supplements should learn who these companies are before buying their products and helping to inadvertently fund the destruction of health freedom in this country.”

ACTION TO TAKE

It is imperative you immediately call your member of Congress, and tell them to oppose H.R.2900. Call the Congressional switchboard at (202) 224-3121. A switchboard operator will connect you directly with the House office you request.
