ATTACK ON US HEALTH
Thomas Jefferson in a letter to Dr. Benjamin Rush wrote, "It behooves every man who values liberty of conscience for himself, to resist invasions of it in the case of others: or their case may, by change of circumstances, become his own."
All over our country, corporation-serving Congressmen and Congresswomen are initiating bills that would decimate health freedom by eradicating the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA). DSHEA is a law passed in 1994 that classifies nutrients as food and prevents any upper limits on nutritional supplements. Because of DSHEA and another law which says the US cannot harmonize with any regulation which violates US law, the anti-supplement policy of the US CODEX Office is currently illegal (because CODEX would enforce upper limits on nutrients and therefore goes against DSHEA). But if DSHEA were eliminated, the anti-supplement policy of the US CODEX Office would no longer be illegal. And our pending lawsuit against the US CODEX Office would become meaningless.
We must keep DSHEA the law of our land!
There is a very good reason why the corporation-serving Congressmen and Congresswomen are launching bills that would decimate DSHEA. It's not because they care about "consumer protection" or "health care". It's because as long as DSHEA remains intact, CODEX ALIMENTARIUS' destructive Vitamin and Mineral Guideline (ratified on July 4, 2005 in Rome) is barred from practical implementation in the U.S. With DSHEA gone, there would be virtually nothing to stop the anti-nutrient force of CODEX ALIMENTARIUS short of a massive, forceful, cohesive popular movement to drive back CODEX ALIMENTARIUS and reinstitute DSHEA.
The corporations, especially big pharma, whom these Congressmen and Congresswomen are serving, would be happy about the elimination of DSHEA. This is because natural health products, which DSHEA is protecting, causes people to turn away from pharmaceutical drugs.
Not only would the bills proposed decimate DSHEA, but there are simultaneous (and equally destructive) bills up for Congressional approval in both houses that would give the FDA draconian powers to eliminate nutritional supplements from the market. The funny thing is that the corporation-serving Congresswomen and Congressmen who are driving these anti-health freedom bills (and who deserve nothing less than to be swiftly removed from office come election time), are supporting tyrannical measures against safe nutritional supplements while pharmaceutical drugs continue to kill hundreds of thousands of Americans every year. And they are not making a peep about drugs!
Their bills would grant hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer money to the FDA to "regulate" nutritional supplements (which are so safe that the hypocrisy of regulating and restricting nutrients while allowing Vioxx back on the market after it was proven to kill nearly two hundered thousand Americans is a demonstration of sheer insanity, not public service). The FDA, as you may be aware, is a rather sorry story of unwholesome influence by special interests and revolving door policies with pharmaceutical companies. Giving the FDA the power to eliminate nutritional supplements from the market is equivalent to giving the pharmaceutical industry the power to eliminate nutritional supplements from the market: this irresistible power would be used without missing a heartbeat.
