Please FORWARD Widely
YOU ARE THE FORCE AND YOU ARE WITH US!
The Health Freedom Movement is gaining strength at a remarkable pace. Ron Paul, the Constitutional-minded Presidential Candidate has added a Health Freedom plank to his campaign! He is the only candidate to do so thus far, but we can be sure if you remain active and keep our voice loud and clear, he will not be the last.
Shouldn’t your freedom to determine how you want to get well and how you want to stay that way — even if it does not put heaps of money into the Medical Industrial Complex be YOUR choice, not the Federal Death Administration’s choice? After all, their drugs of choice kill at least twice as many Americans each year as died in the entire Vietnam war -and that’s just counting in-hospital deaths WHEN THE DRUGS ARE USED PROPERLY!

The FDA issued a draft Guidance to criminalize all natural health options on December 26, 2006. They did not get around to notifying anyone that they had done so until February 26, 2007. Public comment was only permitted until April 30 although we did get it extended to May 29, 2007.
The link to the FDA site for public comment was broken so we got a special email address, making our site the only one we know of in the country though which people could submit their comments. And they did. 588,000+ people tried to submit their protest to protect supplements and other natural health options. Because the site was so often interfered with, “only” 197,000+ people got their comments in.
That ONLY 197,000 people created a roar that is still reverberating in the halls of Congress, on the campaign trail and through out America. But the FDA, hearing it, has double-timed its efforts to take away your health freedoms – ALL of them.
BY NO ACCIDENT WHATSOEVER, THIS GAG ON ACCURATE HEALTH CLAIMS IS IDENTICAL IN IMPACT TO THE CODEX RESTRICTIONS PLACED ON LETTING PEOPLE KNOW, BY ANY MEANS, THE HEALTH IMPACT OF THEIR FOOD AND FOOD COMPONENTS.
AND WHAT COUNTRY LEADS THIS PARTICULAR PRO-PHARMA CRUSADE?
RIGHT! YOU GUESSED IT!
THE UNITED STATES OF GLOBALIZED CORPORATE AMERICA
This time, the game is to make sure that you cannot learn what supplements are right for you, in what dose and for what conditions. The FDA’s newest game, the “Evidence-Based Review System for the Scientific Evaluation of Health Claims”, Docket 2007D-0125, http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/hclmgui5.html, is designed to raise the bar so high on information about what supplements can do, their health benefits, that, as the guidance says, small and medium sized supplement companies will be driven out of business. That is the intent. The big companies remain, for a while. The small, innovative, personally owned companies are burdened and blanked out of business.
This strategy violates US legislation AND US Supreme Court decisions (case law). In the public comment we are urging you to send to the FDA (hyper link to http://www.democracyinaction.org/dia/organizationsORG/healthfreedomusa/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=12189) those violations are spelled out. Briefly, the 1994 Dietary Supplements Health and Education Act, DSHEA, says that supplements are foods and foods are generally regarded as safe. Dangerous supplements can be removed from the market. All others are to be left alone.
The Supreme Court said that the FDA MAY NOT control information to keep people from doing what they want to and what the FDA does not want them to – in this case, know about supplements and buy them.
You may recall that in my lecture “Nutricide” I defined Nutricide as:
1. The death of a body of knowledge about the health benefits of food and
2. The death of large numbers of people through manipulation of the food supply.
This Guidance is Definition No. 1, pure and simple. Codex and the hundreds of thousands of iatrogenic (doctor-caused) deaths through permitting known killer-drugs on the market is Definition No. 2, also pure and simple.
Spread the Freedom Word, Sing the Freedom Song!
I strongly suggest that you forward this email to everyone you know and inform your health food store as well as the makers of the supplements you depend on and urge them to send your comments in as well. There is little time and the battle is well and truly joined. This is the FDA’s fourth health freedom and health hostile Guidance THIS YEAR.
Their Game Is Called “Your Money AND Your Life!”
This Pharma Phriendly dream-cometrue (a nightmare come to life for natural medicine) goes into effect on December 22, 2007. The public comment period is short. Your comments (hyperlink to http://www.democracyinaction.org/dia/organizationsORG/healthfreedomusa/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=12189 )are all that stands between . NOW is the hour for your action if you value your freedom of speech, your Congress Takes Supplements, Too
We are taking this message loud and clear to Congress. They eat, they get diseases, they suffer with conventional medicine until they figure out that it is not working for them and then they take supplements, too. I have personally seen the bottles on their desks! They need to hear that Americans, in huge numbers, are sick and tired of being kept sick and want their Constitutional and legislative rights preserved by their employees, the Congress of the United States.
Every email to the FDA tells the Hill that there is a mighty force pushing back the tide of food fascism and manufactured illness — YOU.
Click here ( http://www.democracyinaction.org/dia/organizationsORG/healthfreedomusa/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=12189 ) and be part of that freedom force – the life you save will be yours and the lives of those you love. Literally.
Cost Benefits Ratio
This is your fight. Is the benefit of having the Natural Solutions Foundation fighting for your health freedom in Congress and at Codex worth the cost to you?
No one else is fighting for your rights as effectively as the Natural Solutions Foundation.
How much of the bill are you willing to pay? How about the same amount of money that you spend for a month’s worth of dietary supplements? How about a week’s worth? Perhaps a small tithe, 1 penny on the dollar. Perhaps a thousand dollars a month, perhaps ten. You decide how much your health freedom and your Constitutional rights to information is worth to you. Then click here to make that tax deductible donation. You, not the Medical Industrial Complex, are our only source of funds to fight this battle. While you are making your donation, please consider making it a recurring donation so that the Natural Solutions Foundation has a regular monthly source of income.
And don’t forget to support the health freedom fight by “the Freedom Shop”: go to http://www.organics4u.org/ and purchase clean, organic and pure supplements and personal care products. 40% of your purchase price is tax deductible since that is the amount that supports the work of the Natural Solutions Foundation. Thanks, in advance, for your Freedom Shopping support!
Remember, We ARE the ones we have been waiting for.
Yours in health and freedom,
