CODEX ALIMENTARIUS, an UN-sponsored global food standards body, is deceptively promoted as “consumer protection”. Based on junk science (e.g., treating nutrients as if they were toxins) and treating pesticides and herbicides as if they are safe by eliminating all upper limits of pesticide residues in food, Codex is devitalizing and toxifiying the world’s food supply. Springing directly from the German genocidal Final Solution, Codex is an intentional global depopulation tool. A Codex is a brilliantly conceived long ranged plan presented under the guide of food security and safety.
The hand-in-glove partnership of the US Government and Codex to make nutrients illegal is already evident in Europe and Australia. For example, a French storekeeper was jailed for selling 500mg. tablets of vitamin C. Codex criminalizes the production of nutritious food both commercially and at home. This means it will be illegal to grow your own high quality organic food in your own garden. Food growing permits and numbers will be issued. Once issued, these numbers mandate compliance with all applicable enforced degraded and unhealthy food “standards” including forced pesticide use, food irradiation, anti-biotics, and hormone use. In other words, Codex is explicitly mandating global undernutrition and toxicity for everyone.
The projections of anticipated deaths from this global undernutrition range from 3.5 billion to 5.4 billion people over the next 20-25 years (this is more than one half to two thirds of the world population). Confirming this, World Health Organization (WHO) estimates deaths from non-communicable diseases of undernutrition, cancers, cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, and obesity in the next 20 years will account for 89% of the global deaths. UNESCO, UNICEF, and other international agencies have reached similar conclusions. It takes little imagination to see this as a planned genocide. This is not a new idea. The intent of the power elite is widely acknowledged. So if you think we are just talking about supplements, almonds, or your personal food…please think again. This is a global issue.
“In 1968 the Club of Rome concluded that civilization would collapse unless the death rate was increased…” *
“The Club of Rome developed a plan Global 2000 to kill several billion people by 2050” *
“Jacques-Yves Cousteau wrote,” world population must be stabilized and to do that we must eliminate 350,000 people per day…”*
Undernutrition and toxified foods efficiently diminish immune competence leaving people susceptible to pandemics and worldwide mass death. Could Avian flu be the type of thing that philosopher Bertrand Russell had in mind when he said, ”war has hitherto been disappointing in [population reduction], but perhaps bacteriological war may appear to be more effective. If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation, survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full…the state of affairs might be somewhat unpleasant, but what of that? Really high–minded people … are indifferent to happiness especially other peoples.”
Codex provides implementation tools for the world’s nations including the US, to achieve their depopulation goals. CODEX ALIMENTARIUS violates existing US laws. The USA FDA has vowed to implement Codex (called “HARMonizing”) whether or not US law allows it. ALL food production in the US will have to conform to Codex, even your personal garden. The euphemism for the Codex-generated death sentence for billions of people is, “Codex Standards and Guidelines”. By sanctifying extreme toxification of all food groups and mandating global under-nutrition, Codex stands as the New World Order’s global executioner.
CODEX is harmful to nutritional supplements… because it says, “YES” to…
• Supplement doses so low that they have no therapeutic effect on you
• Making Vitamin C (and all other vitamins and minerals) above a tiny dose per day an illegal substance
• Prohibiting all but a tiny number of supplements sold in uselessly tiny doses
CODEX is harmful to natural health… because it says, “YES” to…
• Destroying the Wellness Industry in order to wipe out competition to the Pharmaceutical Industry (the
more people turn to natural health, the fewer drugs they buy because the fewer drugs they need)
• Ruining health food stores and wellness companies by wiping out and criminalizing natural health products
CODEX is harmful to organic meat and dairy… because it says, “YES” to…
• Mandating that all food animals be treated with synthetic growth hormones and antibiotics despite their documented dangers to you and your family
• Mandating that all dairy cows be treated with Monsanto’s rBGH (genetically engineered bovine growth hormone) despite its documented dangers for you and your family
CODEX is harmful to organic agriculture and clean food… because it says, “YES” to…
• Unlabeled use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in your food, despite their documented dangers to you and your family
• Degrading organic standards to the point at which they become meaningless
• Raising and/or eliminating permissible levels for pesticides, veterinary drugs and other toxins in farming to extremely dangerous levels
• Mandating that all food must be irradiated unless eaten locally and raw CODEX is harmful to you and the Earth… because it says, “NO” to…
• Your freedom of choice in health products and natural medicine treatments
• Clean, unadulterated food and a meaningful certified organic farming system
• Our planet’s environmental health (CODEX would toxify our world even more)
This is a battle that can be won if we do our work.
To learn more about CODEX ALIMENTARIUS and what you can do to protect your health freedoms visit the Natural Solutions Foundation at
Most immediately, it is important to understand that with a focused and empowered effort this battle to maintain the Culture of Life can be won. At this moment it requires funds to keep the effort going; Dr. Rima and Major General Stubblebine have used up much of their personal resources and now need more staff and funds to educate all the nations.
The second is to become educated so you can alert other people; the third is to send the appropriate messages to the appropriate government officials and agencies when asked. Every person’s help is needed. Together we stand, divided we fall. This is a clear struggle between the Culture of Life and the Culture of Death!!!

Take Action Now: Health Freedom Protection Act Reintroduced
Take Action: Support H.R. 2117Take Action: Support H.R. 2117
Washington, May 2, 2007 – The Coalition to End FDA and FTC Censorship reports that Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) has reintroduced the Health Freedom Protection Act, H.R. 2117.
The Food and Drug Administration prohibits with an absolute prior restraint every claim in the market that a nutrient treats a disease. It is, for example, illegal for you to be told in the market that prune juice treats constipation; that glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate treat osteoarthritis; that omega-3 fatty acids reduce the risk of sudden death heart attack; or that folic acid reduces the risk of alzheimer’s disease. Each of those claims is demonstrably true, yet prohibited by the FDA.
Why does the FDA ban speech that can heal and save lives?
It reserves to the pharmaceutical industry the right to make claims about therapeutic effects, ensuring that drug companies have a monopoly on the making of such claims and the economic rewards that come from them. The rights violation carries with it loss of health and sometimes life. It also causes consumers who might well find an ailment treatable with inexpensive and non-toxic dietary elements to perceive costly and side effect laden drugs as their only alternative.
* FDA’s ban on the claim that folic acid reduces the risk of neural tube defects contributed to 2,500 preventable neural tube defect births in America each year the ban remained in place;
* FDA’s ban on the glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate claim contributes to twenty million Americans pain and suffering associated with osteoarthritis;
* FDA’s ban on the omega-3/sudden death heart attack claim contributes to approximately 100,000 preventable sudden death heart attacks each year.
It is a lie that foods and elements in foods lack therapeutic effects. Many dietary ingredients have such effects. Telling the truth about those effects in the market can land you in jail.
The Federal Trade Commission prosecutes parties who make advertising claims about the effects of foods and nutrients on the body. It does not limit those prosecutions to parties that actually deceive consumers. It also does not limit those prosecutions to products that fail to perform as advertised. The FTC has refused to define an objective standard of review that would constrain its power to those cases in which ads actually deceive. Instead, it exercises broad, unbridled discretion in charging and condemning parties as deceptive advertisers. Moreover, no one in this country should be held by the government to be a deceptive advertiser unless the government proves that consumers have in fact been deceived.
H.R. 2117, the Health Freedom Protection Act, will end FDA and FTC censorship. Public support for the bill is critical. This is your chance to let Congress know you will not sit back while agencies of your federal government take your freedoms away!

Support the Health Freedom Protection Act
Send a letter to your Representative asking him/her to support H.R. 2117, the Health Freedom Protection Act.
The FDA’s approval process for informational labeling of food-based health claims has been so slow and uncertain that very little meaningful health information is making its way to food and dietary supplement consumers. Why does the FDA ban speech that can heal and save lives? Many dietary ingredients have therapeutic effects, yet telling the truth about those effects in the market can land you in jail. The Food and Drug Administration makes it next to impossible to assert any claim that a supplement or nutrient has the potential to positively affect a person’s health.
The Federal Trade Commission prosecutes parties who make advertising claims about the effects of foods and nutrients on the body. It does not limit those prosecutions to parties that actually deceive consumers. It also does not limit those prosecutions to products that fail to perform as advertised. In short, in this standardless environment, the FTC can exercise a great deal of discretion to determine what claims are deceptive and which ones are valid. No one in this country should be held by the government to be a deceptive advertiser unless the government proves that consumers have in fact been deceived.
A bill has been introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives that would give consumers access to truthful, non-misleading health information. The Health Freedom Protection Act, H.R. 2117, was introduced in the U.S. House on Wednesday, May 2, 2007, and will end FDA and FTC censorship. Urge your Representative to support this bill and sign on as a cosponsor – this is your chance to let Congress know you will not sit back while agencies of your federal government take your freedoms away!

Every Letter Counts
Ron Paul’s Given Us a Great Bill
to Get Behind!
Click here (http://tinyurl.com/3xwmjm)(http://www.democracyinaction.org/dia/organizationsORG/healthfreedomusa/c…) to tell your Congressperson to co-sponsor the Health Freedom Protection Act, H. R. 2117.
Congressman Ron Paul, MD (R-TX) has done it again. He has introduced a great bill into the House of Representatives, The Health Freedom Protection Act, H.R. 2117. This bill is of monumental importance to your health and health freedom. Short, pithy and to the point, it allows supplements to carry scientifically justified health claims. It shifts the burden of proof to the FDA to prove that health claims are NOT scientifically warranted, rather than assuming that health claims are forbidden as advertising unless they relate directly to either structure or function. Thus, “Cherries may be good for arthritis” would be permitted since there is strong scientific evidence that they help people with joint pain.
FDA Restricting Your Right to Know What Supplements Can Do For You
The FDA does not want you to know how good supplements are for you. If you understand how safe, effective and inexpensive they are, why would you take drugs? When I coined the term “Nutricide” I gave it two definitions:
1. The death of a body of knowledge about the health benefits of foods
2. The death of large numbers of people through the manipulation of the food supply.
The FDA is working on both the first (through tools like the recent dangerous and assaultive “CAM Guidance”) and the second (through forcing Codex “HARMonization” on you and your food).
It’s Your Right to Have
Information About Supplements
Although Dr. Paul is trained as an allopathic physician, he believes in your right to use supplements and herbs which have truthful, informative health claims on their labels and in their promotional material.
The FDA does not believe any such thing, of course. Their endless attacks on truthful health claims are part of a “Pharma-Phriendly”, lop sided and dangerous policy designed to put drug competitors (i.e., natural products and practices) out of business. FDA policy which attempts to gag real information on natural products while colluding with dangerous drug to hide their dangers. To cite just one example of an unfolding cabinet of horrors, the FDA colluded with drug companies to allow neurotoxic, suicidality-inducing anti depressant medications (commonly known as SSRIs) to be prescribed as if they were safe and effective (despite abundant information showing they are neither) in the very young, the very old and everyone in between. The FDA resisted tooth and nails adding precautionary information (“black box warnings”) to labels notifying doctors and patients that these compounds could cause death and injury in a variety of ways (e.g., suicide, homicide, cardiac death, stroke, neuroleptic crisis, etc.) and do permanent harm to anyone taking them. They also buried the information that these drugs did no better than placebo, although placebos did not lead to death or permanent physical injury. And placebos are a whole lot cheaper. Loved ones were lost, families were devastated, brains, livers and lives were injured beyond repair.
Truth is Just A Bowl of…
At the same time, the FDA threatened the Michigan Cherry Growers Association (MCGA) with severe legal punishment if they did not remove links from their websites to independent peer reviewed scientific studies. These studies, which the MCGA had no role in producing or sponsoring, showed that cherries were good for people who had arthritis.
According to the FDA, mounting such “advertising” on their web site which then was making “health claims” TURNED CHERRIES INTO AN UNTESTED DRUG. Of course, cherries are a lot cheaper and safer than, say, Vioxx or Celebrex. Cherries have never been associated with 130,000 plus deaths from heart attacks, but, then, their profit margin is absolutely unacceptable to Big Pharma.
You probably recognize this twisted, commercially engendered “logic” from the recently proposed abusive and dangerous “FDA Guidance on CAM Regulation” which proposes that same magical transition for ANYTHING whatsoever (including a needle to remove a splinter, holy water or carrot juice) used with the intent to induce health. (By the way, despite broken links and other manipulations, over 197,733 people submitted comments through our site to the FDA opposing their inaccurate “restatement of the law”.
One of the people who urged the FDA to back off from its intended abuse of its power was Congressman Ron Paul. But, because he realizes well that the FDA is just gearing up for another round of assaults on your health and health freedom, he did more than that.
What H.R. 2177 Does to Protect Your Health Freedom
Dr. Paul reintroduced his important and powerful Health Freedom Protection Act shortly after the disastrous “FDA Revitalization Act of 2007, S. 1082, passed the Senate. Congressman Paul’s bill shifts the burden of proof onto the FDA whenever the agency wants to deny the public the benefit of health claims information about Dietary Supplements. And it wants to deny the public that information a lot.
H. R. 2117 provides that reasonable health claims, with proper disclosure language, shall be allowed “unless the Secretary determines that — (i) there is no
scientific evidence that supports the claim; and (ii) the claim is inherently misleading and incapable of being rendered non-misleading through the addition of a disclaimer.” Thus, even “a scintilla*” of scientific evidence would allow Dietary Supplements to make claims that they may be of benefit to individuals. The requirements of the bill are consistent with the law that already governs the agency’s position, announced in 2004, “FDA intends to apply a standard for substantiating claims for dietary supplements that is consistent with the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC’s) standard for dietary supplements and other health related products of ‘competent and reliable scientific evidence’.”
This policy has not been adhered to by the FDA since it attacks health claims on a regular basis and allows only so-called “structure function claims”, barring all other types of health claims.
Kill the knowledge of health benefits of dietary supplements and you kill the market for dietary supplements. The logic is unassailable. The impact is a classic double whammy:
Whammy 1: a rise in the preventable diseases of under nutrition, defined by the World Health Organization as
* Cardiovascular Disease
* Diabetes and
Whammy 2: a rise in the number of deaths and serious adverse events from the use of drugs where natural, safe, effective (and cheap) treatments could have avoided this human tragedy.
The Natural Solutions Foundation and our legal counsel believe that this bill would greatly enhance public access to truthful and non-misleading health information. Your right to access truthful, non-misleading health information is supported by, and is in keeping with, the US Supreme Court’s dictum in Thompson v. Western States Medical Centers,
“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 t that it had an interest in preventing misleading advertisements, this interest could be satisfied by the far less restrictive alternative of requiring … a warning …”
Health Freedom Protection Act
The Health Protection Act, H.R. 2117, is cosponsored by Congressmen Burton (R-IN), Shays (R-CT), Bartlett (R-MD), and Duncan m(R-TN). It presents a clear opportunity to enhance legal protections for Dietary Supplements and natural remedies. Its adoption would shift FDA resources from over-regulation of safe food substances (e.g., Dietary Supplements) to what should be their main task: protecting people from truly dangerous drugs and medical devices. We need to encourage other congresspeople to join as cosponsors and get behind the Health Freedom Protection Act.
And, should the House equivalent to Senator Kennedy’s disastrous “FDA Revitalization Act of 2007, S. 1082, be passed, we are urging your Congresspeople to act strongly to attach the whole of H. R. 2117 to it as an amendment to provide strong protective language for Dietary Supplements and their legitimate health claims.

Best thing to understand and do now is read B. Richard’s article including the part in the middle with two letters to our Representatives –
Senate Bill 1082 was passed in the Senate on May 9 –
Commentary on This.
Read the Actual Senate Bill S1082 as it was modified and passed, the “FDA Revitalization Bill”
and the Various Various Senators’ public thoughts on S1082
The Durbin amendment to S1082 (#1022, which passed on a vote of 94-0), directs the Secretary of Health and Human Services to conduct a study to figure out how to implement user fees in the food industry (which includes dietary supplement companies). I can tell you right now that unlike Big Pharma user fees, these user fees will drive up the cost of food and dietary supplements and run many smaller businesses out of business. Such money would have to be collected from many thousands of small companies as a form of tax, and in the case of dietary supplement companies will become part of an intentional FDA-harassment campaign to brand safe and effective dietary supplements as drugs. An underlying primary goal of the FDA is to help Big Pharma eliminate competition from the market. These user fees will be used in conjunction with draconian Adverse Event Reporting legislation that Hatch snuck through the Senate last year in the wee hours of the Lame Duck session.
Our government should fund the FDA for adequate inspection of the safety of the food supply, including and especially food imports. The FDA should not become the next IRS. We need less bureaucratic bumbling with our freedom, not more.
In essence, the Senate’s desire to encourage the expansion of user fees to Big Pharma and its desire to expand them to the food industry is a sign that the Senate can no longer do its job of proper financial appropriations. By dumping government responsibility onto the private sector, not only is a costly bureaucratic nightmare created, but in the case of drugs – SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUES AND CONFLICT OF INTEREST ISSUES ARE PERPETUATED.
Please continue this article here, and get to the important letters to send to Congress!
When you combine the new FDA powers of regulation proposed under Senate Bill 1082 with the definition of organic food, juice, massage, and other things that can help us heal as “drugs” in the FDA Alternative Medicine Guidance Document, we can see the danger!
This is an attempt by the World Trade Organization to (in their own words) “promote coordination of all food standards by international governmental and non-governmental organizations.”

Dear Senator or Congressperson,
As a holistic physician for 35 years, and the director of the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Patagonia, AZ, where we have helped thousands of people over the years with natural approaches to healing their chronic diseases, the vast majority of which who were not able to be helped by allopathic medicine, it is with great concern that we read about the FDA’s attempts to overstep its legislative boundaries and overrule DSHEA of 1995 and the overwhelming Will of The People. I am writing to you because as our representative to protect the people, we can only turn to you as part of the democratic process to not allow the FDA to act in blatantly undemocratic ways that will undermine the health of literally millions of people. You may already know that the FDA has tried to undermine any use of nutrients and have already been overruled by the Supreme Court (Pearson v. Shalala, among others). The FDA’s actions are overtly in the best interests of the pharmaceutical companies; it is notoriously, publicly well known for creating policies heavily biased towards supporting the big business pharmaceutical sector. It’s also publicly well known that many of the FDA’s staff have worked for pharmaceuticals previously or will get good jobs after they leave (the revolving door).
Without going into the details, there are numerous cases where they have neglected their duties to monitor the safety of the pharmaceutical drugs, resulting in the deaths of many people. It would be nice if they actually policed what they are supposed to do, which is to create safety in the drugs.
The FDA’s notorious bias in favor of the pharmaceutical and biotech industries helps create policies and regulations that are more interested in the wealth of the few than the health of the many. This bias can be reversed, and the People’s health and rights protected. During an interview with T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Cornell University, and author of The China Study, who is an insider to some of the systemic agency problems of the FDA, the following reforms to improve the ability to serve the public sector rather than the international pharmaceuticals have been made:
– The upper echelons, FDA administrators, and committee Chairs be independent of any financial interest or influence from the biotech and pharmaceutical industry in the outcome of the FDA’s research, regulation, and public guidelines for at least ten years from their service in the FDA, and not be able to take jobs with pharmaceutical companies after they leave the FDA.
– FDA be provided by Congress the resources it actually needs to protect the people by overseeing the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, so that pharmaceutical and biotech money will be neither needed nor accepted.
Based on data from Death By Modern Medicine by Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D., dietary supplement deaths are almost nonexistent. There are more deaths due to honey bee stings than deaths from dietary supplements. Deaths due to prescribed drugs occur 26,000 times more often than from supplements. In the last 25 years, deaths from dietary supplements have averaged less than 5 confirmed deaths per year, and most of these were related to single batch of tryptophan that was introduced in the 1980’s that was related to a genetically engineered synthetic binder. Deaths from pharmaceuticals are 784,000 per year. Considering the relative safety compared of vitamins and minerals, supplements, natural therapies, and vegetable juice fasting, compared to drugs (or compared to even riding in a car), no one in their right mind, unless they have a specific political agenda, would ever consider banning, or even regulating, these herbs and supplements, natural therapies, and juices for healing by the public, when many have shown proven value in healing for thousands of years around the world, causing no harm. Allopathic medicine and modern drugs have been around for slightly more than 125 years. Many of the pharmaceuticals have so many side effects that they go out of use over short spans of years. The FDA’s attempts to control and ban these natural therapies is a gross and raw attempt to destroy the healthy competition of natural therapies and deprives many millions of their right to choose what is actually safe and what works, rather than be subjected to pharmaceuticals with their 784,000 deaths per year and hospitals with their 100,000 deaths per year. In 1994, the American People through its representatives passed DSHEA to protect the health of the people. We remain happy with DSHEA; we want to keep what we have, and what we worked so hard to protect. Stopping the FDA from overstepping its boundaries as delineated in 1994 with the DSHEA not only protects the health of the people, but the health of the free enterprise system.
Presently, we have started a diabetes program that includes fasting and supplements, and are getting people off insulin in an average of 1-4 days, and normal blood sugar on an average 2-3 weeks. Realize that the secondary aspects of diabetes are costing the US $230 billion a year. For this program to be made outlawed by the FDA is not only cruel, but disastrous for the health and finances of the American people.
I urge you to do anything in your power to prevent the FDA from overstepping its boundaries in any way, and to vote completely against any encroachment by this constitutionally illegal, immoral and overtly politically motivated attempted action by the FDA to interfere with our right to the pursuit of health, happiness, and a quality way of life.
The Preamble to the Constitution says we have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The FDA, under the guise of protecting us from who knows what, is intentionally blocking our right to health, which has to do with liberty, happiness, and life itself. We appreciate strongly your efforts on this part and will be following up with you. As you may be well aware, there are millions of people who are very concerned.

The Trilateral Cooperation Charter
The Danger to Health Freedom and US Sovereignty
Please forward this message to everyone you know, and use the weblink below to sign an important petition to Congress.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been meeting with the food/drug agencies from Mexico and Canada, and together they have written a Trilateral Cooperation Charter which defines both their power and their activities as if US laws no longer exist. Their new organization, unapproved by Congress, has already issued more than 700 letters to manufacturers and distributors of natural diet aids, threatening them with legal action, even though they are not a legal entity.
Hard to believe? Here are their websites:
While their goals of preventing “Health Fraud” as printed may sound reasonable, what they really mean is that if a dietary supplement or health practitioner makes scientifically valid health claims about naturopathic regimens that are not “FDA approved” (such as that turmeric extract is a safe, natural muscle relaxant, or that vitamin C improves immunity), this claim can be defined as a “fraud” and ban the supplement or muzzle the health practitioner.
This is a violation of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, referred to as DSHEA, which provides easy access to dietary supplements in the U.S. without restriction (classifying supplements as foods, which is what they are), and the U.S. Supreme Court Pearson Decision of 2001, which allows reasonable health claims on dietary supplements without interference by FDA.
Their plan is to create a three-country entity – a North American Union, similar to the European Union – whose powers would supercede U.S. laws. The Trilateral Charter lays the groundwork for the regulation and restriction of dietary supplements and alternative health practices.
Why would they do this? For years the FDA has been taking the side of the pharmaceutical industry, and, like other federal agencies today, there is a “revolving door” between FDA and the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. This became obvious when the FDA refused to ban Vioxx, even though it had caused more than 100,000 deaths caused by heart attacks. The company voluntarily withdrew the drug, long after regulation was needed. Thousands of lives could have been saved if FDA had acted. Apparently the health of the pharmaceutical industry is more important to FDA than the health of our citizens.
The FDA hates DSHEA. Previous to its enactment, FDA launched legal actions, and sometimes even armed raids, against alternative healthcare practitioners and supplement providers. After DSHEA was passed, FDA continued to threaten supplement manufacturers who had very modest health claims listed on the product. The Life Extension Foundation (LEF) sued FDA and it went to the Supreme Court, which found in favor of LEF in the Pearson Decision of 2001.
John Hammell, one of the foremost leaders of the health freedom movement in the US, has begun a petition campaign to demand Congressional oversight to stop FDA from pursuing this Trilateral Charter and stop harrassing supplement manufacturers.

At the bottom of the petition you will find more detailed information about the issue.
Dear Advocate for Health Freedom,
Even for busy people, viewing these documentary films is central to fully grasping what is unfolding:
The Real Face of the European Unionhttp://www.stopthenorthamericanunion.com/videos/EuropeanUnion.html
National Problematique: The North American Nightmare
The only chance we’re going to have to get congressional oversight on the North American Union on a whole is if we start first with just one PART of the scam: the FDA’s Trilateral Cooperation Charter, and we’ll only get oversight on THAT if we can first awaken the American people who helped push DSHEA through congress in ’94.
To do THAT, we have to overcome the SPIN coming out of the pharma dominated vitamin trade associations (especially NPA and CRN) wherein people are being lied to and told Codex is a “non issue” and “don’t worry we’re handling it”, and we ALSO have to overcome the SPIN of the controlled opposition groups that are hell bent on side tracking people into dead ends. NSF is side tracking people into a huge dead end.
The only way we can stop Codex from being foisted off on us here is to get congressional oversight on FDA’s Trilateral Cooperation Charter with Canada and Mexico but its going to take one hell of a lot more than the 10,789 some odd people who’ve signed this petition, and people are also going to have to call/fax/write to/make personal visits to members of the Oversight and Investigations subcommittee en masse.
I’ve gotten the ball rolling in the right direction with this petitionhttp://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/373269232#body but I need help spreading the word! I don’t have a staff of people here, I’m one guy working out of his living room who sees a very big picture from years of doing this health freedom work. I have a genetic need for the supplements I use and can’t afford to lose my access.
I deeply appreciate your interest in this matter and hope you will continue to communicate by phone 800-333-2553 as its emotionally uplifting to have other people assisting me in rolling this boulder uphill. Too much is at stake here for us to ever become complacent about this. It seems like an impossible task sometimes to get enough people to see through the spin, but we have to try as hard as possible!

Letter from Mitchell Rabin – Your Immediate Action Needed: STOP FDA LEGISLATION
If you were to know just what is going on, you would first want to cry, then very angrily take pen in hand & write to the FDA, Congress and even the White House. It’s that bad. In my letter to the FDA, I didn’t ask, but demanded that they abandon this legislation completely & stop overstepping their bounds. They even seem to botch dog food. ”The price of freedom”, said Jefferson, is eternal vigilance.”
When it comes to health freedom, this is the FDA’s end game. A new FDA “guidance” document, published on the FDA’s website, reveals plans to reclassify virtually all vitamins, supplements, herbs & even vegetable juices as FDA-regulated drugs. Massage oils and massage rocks will be classified as “medical devices” and require FDA approval. The document is called Docket No. 2006D-0480. Draft Guidance for Industry on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Products and Their Regulation by the FDA. Learn more by watching this video:
The FDA is accepting public comments on the docket until April 30th. They tried to sneak this under the radar, but word got out & now the natural health community is up in arms. Want to protect your access to nutritional supplements, herbs, essential oils, homeopathics or other “complementary” or “alternative” modality? Take action & to post your comments with the FDA right now and write your reps in Washington to put a stop to this outrageous effort to destroy natural medicine and our rights. And be sure to write them. Sending an email has much less impact compared to writing a physical letter in your own words. Modify the sample letter below as you see fit. It is merely a guide to make it easier for you.
Click here for the direct link to the FDA’s comment posting page for this docket.
Letters should be mailed or faxed to the Commissioner of the FDA and to your Congressional representatives A sample letter to the FDA is as follows, although you should also send a letter through the link above on-line: (you can google for list of reps. and fax #’s)
The Division of Docket Management (HFA-305)
Food and Drug Administration
5630 Fisher Lane, Room 1061
Rockville, MD 20852
I’m writing this letter due to serious concern regarding the FDA Docket 2006D-0480 Draft Guidance for Industry on “Complementary and Alternative Medicine Products and Their Regulation by the Food and Drug Administration” which I vehemently oppose as do my friends, family and colleagues. Anyone who I know that cares about their own health—and rights to put what they so wish into their own body and call it what they will—also defiantly opposes this absurd legislation, which has nothing to do with protecting the American people.
DSHEA- 1994 which was voted into Law by our country’s elected Congress defines and classifies food supplements as food. Now the FDA intends to reclassify these same food items as “Drugs” subject to FDA jurisdiction and “Regulation”. “Foods” are not “drugs”. How dare you seek to “double-speak” us? You are at the FDA for one reason alone, and that is to protect the American people. This legislation is an example of you’re protecting pharmaceutical and other interests, NOT OURS. You have strongly overstepped your bounds. If you do not help the people with your legislation, drop it.
Let it be completely clear that I am strongly against the FDA reclassifying the following as drugs: vitamins, minerals, amino acids, probiotics, nutritional supplements, raw juices, homeopathic remedies, functional foods, oils, lotions, creams and all other natural, healthy supplements and supplies used widely by consumers and Alternative/Complementary practitioners. These are natural items that should not be subject to the same regulations as pharmaceuticals. You have insulted our intelligence with these legislative assertions you are making and I, with millions of others, will actively counter this legislation, and anything generally similar to it, directly, through the White House and through Congress.
I am also against natural modalities and therapies being reclassified as “Medical”. Alternative/Complementary health care practitioners are not practicing medicine. They do not diagnose and/or treat disease. Instead, they focus on obtaining and maintaining optimum health and vitality through natural, harmless means. These include in part: Chiropractors, Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Naturopathy, Massage Therapy, energy medicine, body-based practices, mind-body practices, and any other whole health system. You are obviously seeking to obscure boundaries and definitions which we hold sacred. Every state has their own Board of Examiners for the purpose of licensing and maintaining the stringent requirements of each modality. It is best to allow these State Boards to do their jobs. They know them well. There is nothing for the FDA to contribute in this regard. You have overstepped your bounds. We will call for a Congressional investigation of the FDA as it is obvious to us that your interests are not ours. You are not serving the American people but private interests. Yet, you are legally bound to serve.
Neither do I agree that the tools and supplies used by Alternative/Complimentary practitioners should be reclassified as “Medical Devices”. Again, the applicable Board of Examiners within each modality specifies what is appropriate and what is not within the scope of each state licensure.
The FDA could be helpful if they would agree to no longer suppress scientific research and findings or limit access to information on Alternative/Complementary health care and/or the natural products available to the public.
FDA Docket 2006D-0480 is not beneficial to the health of the American populace including the shareholders and upper management of the pharmaceutical industry. It is in fact detrimental and morally reprehensible. Your attempts to re-classify nature’s own bounty as “drugs” is nothing but a merciless arrogance that is actually pathological. If you think that the American public will stand by while you act in this heinous and immoral manner, you’ve got another thing to understand.
Alternative practices have been used safely for thousands of years and the regulation of these and the elimination of clean, healthy food and supplements is the removal of healthy, natural, personal choices and the eradication of American Health Freedoms.
I can assure you this is a most serious and critical issue to me and I, nor we, will stand for your attempt at an abuse of power.
Houston, We Have a Problem!
The US FDA is at it again. They have been notorious for decades for
their biased attacks and uneven handling of natural,
non-drug/surgery/radiation based health options. This time, though,
they are playing for keeps.
The goal is simple: through a “Guidance” about the regulation of “CAM”
(which they conveniently define as “Complementary and Alternative
MEDICINE” the FDA hopes to serve the interests of Big Pharma by
eliminating all CAM practices and products. ALL of them!
