Inside FDA’s Supplement Power Grab

0

Just as we suspected, the FDA is coming after supplements once again. Action Alert!

Recently we told you about a statement made by Commissioner Scott Gottlieb (who has since resigned his post) concerning the FDA’s regulatory approach to dietary supplements. The statement was short on details but gave us cause for concern. Now it appears as if those fears were warranted: the FDA is attempting to create a mandatory list of all supplement products in the US. Such a list could be used to target certain supplements and remove them from store shelves, and we must oppose it.

This revelation comes as a result of the FDA’s release of its 2020 budget estimates. In that document, the FDA requests the authority to “strengthen” its implementation and enforcement of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) by requiring each supplement manufacturer to register all the products it makes, including all the ingredients of those products, with the agency. Note that an act of Congress would be necessary to grant the FDA the authority to create such a list.

The FDA: Close this abomination down!

One of the greatest threats we face today is what many refer to as the “Food and Death Administration”. (FDA) Far from being a protector of the public health, the true intent of this agency was revealed in the ongoing senate hearings regarding S 3187.

The American public has become increasingly alarmed over the use of the word “modernization” in connection with anything coming out of the District of Criminals. Modernization generally means we are about to get another federal corporate agency expansion that will subject us to foreign agreements, which will grossly infringe on our rights to be left alone by government, and, which will effectively militarize some federal agency against the public. These “modernizations” generally conflict with constitutional protections and grossly expand or create enforcement arms of various agencies.

S 3187 is primarily concerned with increasing the pay-to-play administrative fees; in other words they are going to charge those who contract with them more while at the same time shortening the time it takes to get all pharmaceuticals approved. Well! My goodness! That is exactly what we need to do. We need to fast track the approval process for more drugs that kill, harm and impair the public.

Sen. Tom Harkin (D) IA, introduced the bill claiming it had broad support and acknowledging that they had a great deal of input from stakeholders: THE PRESCRIPTION DRUG MANUFACTURERS, THE PHARMACISTS, THE DRUGSTOREs. He also claimed that consumer groups were involved in the process. More

“For example, selling a bottle of vitamin D supplements at a reasonable dose of, say, 4,000 IU per capsule, is now criminalized under codex unless it has been “licensed.”

Codex Alimentarius is a heinous concept Europe now faces and America and the rest of the world soon will after it was slipped into the recently-passed American “Food Safety” bill that (also) allowed the FDA to become the world’s food policeman.  More

The FDA is Running an Extortion Racket

Dr. Mercola is the founder of the world’s most visited natural health web site, Mercola.com. You can learn the hazardous side effects of OTC Remedies by getting a FREE copy of his latest special report The Dangers of Over the Counter Remedies by going to his Report Page.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is running a criminal extortion racket designed to shift money from health supplement companies to the pockets of top FDA contractors. At least three different companies have been targeted for extortion by U.S. Food and Drug Administration employees.

The FDA extortion racket works like this: FDA employees use keyword-scanning software to scan the Web pages of natural health product and supplement companies. They look for terms like cancer, cures, treatment, remedies and other “forbidden” words.

FDA employees then review the discovered pages to determine if they contain any words that might inform consumers of the health benefits of the nutritional products — or links that point Web users to scientific articles from peer-reviewed medical journals that explain the health benefits of specific foods, supplements or nutrients. Companies are even targeted for simply posting customer testimonials, even when those testimonials make absolutely no health claims.

FDA begins its propaganda campaign against dietary supplements: Be afraid! Very afraid….of the FDA

Is there any requirement on pharmaceutical labels to state that they are safe and effective?

Do pharmaceuticals in fact, state that they are safe and effective?  No! They do not!

Consumer Reports has just come out with the first volley against dietary supplements in order to help the FDA justify the illegal and unlawful assumption of power the agency recently claimed it “believed” it had.  As the FDA attempts to exert unlawful authority over alternative’s to toxic pharmaceuticals, it appears Consumer Reports will do what it can to propagandize this campaign for CODEX and the coming attempts to regulate alternative natural supplements and herbs in order to profit corporate pharmaceutical companies.  

With this report surfacing behind the recent claims of FDA, saying they believed they had the authority to override DSHEA , ending our protected rights to dietary supplements, if that’s what we chose, and implementing CODEX standards which have been thoroughly rejected by the public, FDA will be surfacing more in the news with exaggerated claims of danger from contamination and unverifiable claims of harm from dietary supplements. 

It is unfortunate that FDA is not as tenacious or concerned with the lethal drugs it sets loose on the population on behalf of corporate partners who pay to play. More

Senate Hearing Headlines: The Media Gets It Wrong Again. Here Is Some Of What You Need To Know About Supplement Safety.

In last week’s newsletter, we reported that the staff of the Senate Committee on Aging, led by Senator Kohl (D-WI), was preparing a surprise ambush of dietary supplements in a Senate hearing held last Wednesday. We were right. But we didn’t anticipate how seriously distorted the major media news stories would be.

The centerpiece of the hearing was a report by the GAO (Government Accounting Office) of the testing they had done on 40 herbal supplement bottles at the Committee’s request. An incomplete account of the GAO report was leaked to major media, probably by committee staff, the night before the hearing and produced dramatic headlines. The trouble is that all these headlines were seriously misleading. Here are a few examples:

CBS News: “Many Supplements Contain Lead, Arsenic”
AOL News: “Herbal Supplements May Pose Health Risk” More
