The Natural Solutions Foundation keeps a close eye on the continuing disinformation of Big Pharma to try to convince you that there is no reason to, or good reason not to, take dietary supplements. It is like Honda telling you that there is no reason to buy, or good reason not to buy, a Toyota.
You see, dietary supplements are the direct economic competitor of drugs. Dietary supplements, like clean, unadulterated food, keep you healthy and get you back to health if you have become ill.
Compared to drugs, they are cheap, safe, easy to use and controllable by you or a helpful nutritionally knowledgeable person. And, at least in the US, they are classified as foods so they cannot be regulated the way drugs would be.
Of course, the FDA is always on the look out to undermine that freedom, recognized by the 1994 Dietary Supplements Health and Education Act (DSHEA) — unanimously adopted by Congress — which this Agency publicly calls “the worst act ever passed by the US Congress”. Why? Because the FDA is run by and for industry and the drug industry is a leading source of FDA funds through User Fees. The big players in the food industry, who pay no user fees to the FDA are, none the less, very important buddies of the organization, so food is regulated for the interests of big industry and drugs are regulated to promote the drug industry, at the expense of anything that might get in the way, like, for example, dietary supplements, or the public good.
Recently pro-industry legislators created an Adverse Event Reporting system for dietary supplements that tries to ignore the role of the many drugs many people use in distorting their metabolism and leading to . Naturally, this created a great PR opportunity to bash and diminish the importance and safety of dietary supplements which do not kill people. Drugs kill people. Foods which are not contaminated do not and dietary supplements are foods!
Dr. Ron Paul, Congressman from Texas, last year called one FDA maneuver an “abuse of power…” and Congress passed dangerous bill under the guidance and force of Senator Ed. Kennedy that further enhanced the power of the FDA. In this case, though, the Health Freedom movement had a partial victory in that we insisted that Congress add a clause to the bill, protecting Dietary Supplements… and Congress, responding to the hundreds of thousands of messages that advocates of health freedom, generated, through our Action Items and otherwise, adopted the protective language.
Yet we recall that genetically modified yeast which produced contaminated Tyrptophane did kill people, giving the FDA the excuse it was seeing to remove this safe and effective sleep and calming amino acid from the market. It was, after all, cutting into the drug market heavily. The FDA did not take genetically modified products off the market. And the company which produced the contaminated shipment in Japan had a sudden and very mysterious fire which destroyed the factory – and any evidence of contamination – almost immediately after the incident was revealed.
Such is the corruption of an agency which regulates both food and drugs. Clearly, those functions must be separated and a new agency which is consumer controlled must be created. Click here () to make sure that happens!
In the meantime, read the important analysis of the latest “Dietary Supplements are Poisonous” disinformation and make a recurring 100% tax deductible donation (http://drrimatruthreports.com/index.php?page_id=189) to the Natural Solutions Foundation so that we can continue to provide information and strategic input to keep your health freedom free.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, October 9, 2008
(OMNS, October 9, 2008) “Dietary supplements cause 600 ‘adverse events'”, reported USA Today on 22 Sept, 2008. In an article that looks much like an official US Food and Drug Administration press release, it said that “Serious side effects from the use of food supplements resulted in 604 “adverse-event” reports – a list that includes at least five deaths – through the first six months that such accounts have been required by law.” (1)
Good grief! Looks like all those supplement-popping health nuts really are nuts after all. Food supplements simply must be dangerous!
Or are they?
Later on in the article, far from the headline, USA Today conceded that “An adverse event can be anything from a concern that a supplement isn’t working to a serious illness that follows consumption.” And, FDA spokesman Michael Herndon admitted that of the five deaths and 85 hospitalizations reported, “Some of these deaths were likely due to underlying medical conditions.”
FDA’s method of gaining data is suspect at best and biased at worst. Their “Dietary Supplement Adverse Event Reporting” webpage, http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~DMS/ds-rept.html, states: “FDA would like to know when a product causes a problem even if you are unsure the product caused the problem or even if you do not visit a doctor or clinic.” The measure of uncertainty involved in publicly soliciting adverse reports “even if you are unsure that the product caused the problem” is noteworthy.
But most significant of all is that FDA refused to disclose exactly which supplements allegedly were causing problems. Doesn’t the public have a right to know? In the absence of FDA disclosure to the contrary, it is likely that the five or fewer deaths attributed to “food supplements” were in fact due to medicinal substances marketed as dietary supplements. FDA acknowledges this in a round-about way at their website
There you will find an “Important Message” which asks health professionals to “Report Serious Adverse Events Associated with Dietary Supplements Containing GBL, GHB, or BD . . . a group of products sold as dietary supplements for bodybuilding, weight loss and sleep inducement which have been determined to pose a significant public health hazard. These products are chemically related ! to gamma butyrolactone (GBL), gamma hydroxybutyric acid (GHB), and 1,4 butanediol (BD), and can cause dangerously low respiratory rates (intubation may be required), unconciousness/coma, vomiting, seizures, bradycardia and death. GBL, GHB and BD have been linked to at least 122 serious illnesses reported to FDA, including three deaths.”
But these substances are not foods. They are not vitamins, and they are not minerals, and they are not amino acids. They should not be considered with or as food supplements. Over half of all Americans safely take nutritional supplements every day. If each of those persons took only one tablet per day, that would be some 145,000,000 individual doses daily, for a total of over 53 billion doses annually. Many healthy people take more. And yet, according to national statistics compiled by the authoritative American Association of Poison Control Centers, there is not even one death per year from vitamins. (2) Look at the reports, which detail each individual vitamin, mineral, amino acid and herb, and see for yourself at http://www.aapcc.org/dnn/NPDS/AnnualReports/tabid/125/Default.aspx
By comparison, FDA acknowledges that prescription drugs resulted in 482,154 adverse-event reports in the year 2007. That is nearly 400 times as many adverse events from prescription drugs per six-month period. And this much higher number does not include over-the-counter drugs, a striking omission. Many non-prescription drugs, such as Tylenol (acetaminophen), are a long way from safe. Liver toxicity from acetaminophen poisoning is by far the most common cause of acute liver failure in the United States. Acetaminophen accounted for 51% of all acute liver failure cases in 2003. (3) Indeed, the Associated Press previously reported that common drug dangers are so bad that “Harmful reactions to some of the most widely used medicines – from insulin to a common antibiotic – sent more than 700,000 Americans to emergency rooms each year.” (4)
Vitamin supplements compete with FDA-sponsored drugs. FDA has been trying to eliminate availability of vitamin supplements for over 45 years. As early as 1962, writes constitutional attorney Jonathan W. Emord, “FDA perceived a competitive threat emerging to drug regulation from the sale of dietary ingredients at above RDA doses.” In 1966, “FDA published a rule that any dietary supplement exceeding 150% of the RDA for a vitamin or mineral would automatically be regulated as a drug.” In 1976, after a “public outcry,” the Proxmire Amendment prohibited FDA from deeming a vitamin or mineral a drug solely because of potency. “Undaunted,” continues Emord, “FDA tried yet again to rid the market of vitamins in the 1970s by claiming on a case by case basis that they were adulterated based on their potency.” FDA also tried to have supplements declared to be unapproved food additives. “FDA’s position was a logical absurdity: Single ingredient dietary supplements were food additives b! ecause the ingredients were added to a gelatin capsule which was, FDA said with a wink and a smirk, a food. . . The United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit described FDA’s position as an “Alice in Wonderland” approach.” In 1980, FDA tried to get vitamins classified as over-the-counter drugs. . . FDA has repeatedly exceeded the limits of its statutory authority to bring about changes designed to protect drug companies from competition.” (5)
Additional evidence comes directly from FDA, whose own Dietary Task Force Report, released June 15, 1993, said: “The task force considered many issues in its deliberations including to ensure that the existence of dietary supplements on the market does not act as a disincentive for drug development.” There is also this statement was made by FDA Deputy Commissioner for Policy David Adams, at the Drug Information Association Annual Meeting, July 12, 1993: “Pay careful attention to what is happening with dietary supplements in the legislative arena . . . If these efforts are successful, there could be created a class of products to compete with approved drugs. The establishment of a separate regulatory category for supplements could undercut exclusivity rights enjoyed by the holders of approved drug applications.”
FDA wants control of vitamins. Their latest ploy is to frighten the public into thinking vitamin supplements are dangerous, without proof, and without even naming the supplements they accuse. Don’t fall for what Abram Hoffer, M.D., calls “the FDA’s grand lie that, if told over and over again, is accepted as somehow true.”
Vitamin supplements are not the problem. Poor eating habits, and too many medicines, are the problem. Food supplements are a solution. They are effective, and vastly safer than drugs. The US Food and Drug Administration knows this full well.
