Three for Liberty Campaign: We Have Three Weeks Before Congress Reconvenes!
The Natural Solutions Foundation Has Identified 3 Key Issues Impacting Our Liberty.
Here’s what you can help us accomplish:
1) Protect our right to Self-Shield – NOT be required by laws already in place to take the “swine flu” jab.
2) Reverse the FDA/FTC violation of our right to learn and share the benefits of supplements and herbs.
3) STOP the enactment of (sic) “Food Safety” bill, HR 2749, which allows the FDA to declare martial law, invade your home, degrade your food supply and forbid you to save seeds or grow clean, wholesome foods.”
Visit the Three For Liberty Campaign to Take Action on All Three Now!
* Congress is on its August Recess and you can easily visit your Congressmen and women in their home districts to explain why you want the right to self shield, rather than be forced to take a vaccine or be incarcerated
* The dangerous Swine Flu vaccine is being tested on children and pregnant women* NOT for safety, but for dosage, and has not yet been deployed on a mandatory basis
* The Senate has not yet voted on the total give-away of our food supply to the very forces that are killing us with dangerous and unsafe food, Agribiz
* Every Member of Congress can be educated about the importance of HR 3394 and 3395 in protecting both our health, our health freedom and our Constitutional right to free speech
Right now, you have an outstanding opportunity to act decisively and powerfully to speak for Liberty, and protect her – and yourself. The next three weeks, while Congress is on recess, can be the time when we, the net roots of health freedom, act in such compelling numbers that we do, indeed, protect our health and our freedom from the forces that are trying to overwhelm both of them.
* Vaccine “testing” began yesterday at St. Louis University although the FDA said on July 23, 2009 that it would approve the Swine Flu vaccine for general use BEFORE safety tests were completed – and this for a disease which is “less severe than the seasonal flu.”
Reality check: while you are being reassured that vaccination will be voluntary, two facts bear recalling:
1. As we have previously documented, in 2005 the World Health Organization gave itself the authority to dissolve sovereign governments and take control should there be a “pandemic”. That determination did not stipulate a real pandemic, any pandemic will do.
That declaration states, ” Under special pandemic plans enacted around the world including the USA, in 2005, national governments are to be dissolved in the event of a pandemic emergency and replaced by special crisis committees, which take charge of the health and security infrastructure of a country, and which are answerable to the WHO and EU in Europe and to the WHO and UN in North America.”
This suggests very strongly that the faux pandemic was orchestrated disease or no disease and therefore represents a serious threat to liberty as well as to the social order.
2. Although HHS Secretary Sibelius, Dr. Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and other government officials repeated on CSPAN today that there will be no forced flu vaccinations, the situation is a bit more complex: If Pandemic Emergency powers are invoked, you could be given the “choice” to accept a flu shot or not. If you do, whatever the consequences are, you can sue no one, and no one is liable for your damages (or death). If you “choose” not to accept the “voluntary” flu shot, you will very likely then be faced with incarceration/quarantine/detention.
Despite the legalism, I would call that mandatory vaccination, wouldn’t you?
You Are the Key.
You Decide to Mobilize All of Your Contacts on These Three Key Issues and We Are Unstoppable
1. Swine Flu Vaccination: Big Pharma wants you vaccinated. The US government wants you vaccinated. Baxter, Novartis, Glaxo-Smith Kline, and Sanofi Pasteur executives are members of the advisory group that on July 13th recommended mandatory H1N1 vaccination of everyone in all 194 countries that belong to the WHO.
The plans for the final globalization of the planet needs you to be vaccinated.*
You, of course, do not need to be vaccinated for a trivial disease which has been inflated into a Level 6 Pandemic by the agency which can then take command of the political power of the world.
But here in the US, you have already sent 1.3 MILLION emails to Congress, State Legislators, Governors, Secretary Sibelius of HHS, Secretary Napolitano of DHS and the White House demanding the right to self shield.
Think for a moment what actually happens if, in addition to submitting an email for each member of your family, you mobilize your circle of influence to do the same, and they spread this populist demand further still? What happens is that we get what we demand: the right to NOT take a vaccine for Swine Flu if we don’t want it AND the right not to be incarcerated if we reject the vaccine.
*”USNORTHCOM is the global synchronizer – the global coordinator – for pandemic influenza across the combatant commands” Brig. Gen. Robert Felderman, deputy director of USNORTHCOM’s Plans, Policy and Strategy Directorate: (See Gail Braymen, USNORTHCOM contributes pandemic flu contingency planning expertise to trilateral workshop, USNORTHCOM, April 14, 2008, Also see USNORTHCOM. Pandemic Influenza Chain Training (pdf) (Chossudovsky, 2009)
2. End FDA/FTC Gag Rule on Health and Food: Dr. Ron Paul has given us two new bills that go to the heart of the FDA/FTC violation of our right to learn, and to share, what benefits food components like supplements and herbs can give us.
These bills need to be supported by asking your members of Congress to become co-sponsors and return our Constitutional Rights to us.
3. Prevent Total Industrialization of US Food Supply: The House has passed HR 2749, which allows the corrupt and deadly FDA to declare martial law, invade your home, degrade your food supply and forbid you to save seeds or grow clean, wholesome foods.
We know these outcomes are important to you. The Natural Solutions Foundation has prepared 3 helpful Resource Documents at http://drrimatruthreports.com/?p=3241to serve as talking point papers when you visit your Congressmen and women during the recess, to share with those whom you are mobilizing, to serve as information points for letters to the editor, to share with the people who shop in your health food store, etc.

Protect Against FDA / FTC, Food Fascism, First Amendment Violations and Swine Flu Vaccines
Share These Three Health Store Leaflets for Three Weeks to Save Health Freedom
As Mark Twain is alleged to have opined, “No Man’s Life Liberty or Property is Safe…While the Legislature is in Session” – and certainly no person’s health freedom and food freedom are safe either. Well, Congress is not in session at the moment, and we have about three weeks to educate our representatives while they are home. And as you may have noticed in the media, they are hearing these freedom truths from their constituents!
Please attend any “town hall meetings” held by your representatives and let them know that your personal health freedom is as important an issue the “health care” debate, which is really mostly about who will pay for conventional medical treatment, and how will it be rationed. To the contrary, we’re concerned about Natural Solutions, so we need to concentrate on protecting people from toxic drugs (including vaccines) and from toxic foods as well. Our agenda is not the same as the agenda being portrayed on the mass media. The 3 Leaflets have bullet point information for you to use in educating your representatives about our Health Freedom Agenda.
Thus, the focus of our Three for Liberty Campaign, http://drrimatruthreports.com/?p=3209, our Three Weeks Campaign, needs to be educating decision makers, but also educating the concerned public – people who “get it” and understand that Health Freedom is Our First Freedom and people who CAN “get it” if you help them in that process. Therefore, we invite you to help us, by printing the three Health Food Store Leaflets attached to this blog entry and posting them at your local health food store, food co-op or similar commercial or public venue and posting them. Please print and copy as many as you can. Please re-post them on the Internet. We need to make these posters GO VIRAL!

Gag Rule on Swine Flu options is a perfect example of FDA violation of our rights. I am not allowed to tell you that Nano silver, Vitamin C, MSM, and other immune boosters and enhances are good for dealing with Swine Flu and coming out the other side of it, quite literally.
You probably know that the FDA currently literally forbids telling you truthfully that anything other than vaccines and Tamiflu or Relenza can “treat” the Swine flu. That type of gag regulation is exactly what Ron Paul’s two bills are designed to eliminate. But until they do, all I can do is tell you that IF I could exercise my First Amendment rights as a free American, I would tell you about the fantastic effectiveness and safety record of nano silver and colloidal silver in dealing with all pathogens.
Meanwhile, it is clear that the forces arrayed against our health freedom will not rest until they either destroy those freedoms or we win this enormous war.
Of course you know where you can obtain the same Silver Solution we use, and help the Foundation at the same time:
I would also like to ask for your continuing generous elp: please make your tax deductible donation, http://drrimatruthreports.com/?page_id=189, now to help keep us keeping on in the battle for health and freedom. You need us and we need you. It is a marriage of support and respect. Thanks!
Natural Solutions Foundation
My nominee for the Hall of Shame: FDA with reference to its banning of Pyridoxamine, a form of Vitamin B-6.
Read on and see if you agree with me.
Big Pharma is part of a mega-cartel that makes its money when you are sick. We might want to call it “Big Sick.” The FDA serves the needs of that super cartel without so much as a second thought; it’s built into the bureaucratic structure. It is an agency that Dr. Ron Paul says engages in “abuses of power.” It is increasingly blatant about it, though, as if there is nothing that can be done to stop it.
The FDA has, for a long time, banned truthful claims and information about the health benefits you can expect from foods and nutrients. Nutrient benefits will cut into the drug pushers’ market substantially, after all. Unless you do not know the good things you can expect from those items, leaving you all the more vulnerable to the drug pushers who are permitted to sell their deadly wares to you over the TV, in magazines and through your doctor’s prescription pads.
Remember that the 1994 law which gives us the right to nutrients in whatever dose we want them, the Dietary Supplements Health and Education Act (DSHEA) also gives us the right to truthful information about nutrients, herbs and food components. In clear violation of that law, and the First Amendment of the Constitution, however, the FDA uses a variety of powers, real and assumed, to suppress both science and facts. Take away the information and you effectively kill the alternatives to the deadly drugs the Big Pharma cartel pushes…
To make matters worse, this same gag rule on truthful speech concerning nutrient health benefits has been brought — by the FDA, of course, to Codex Alimentarius (the “world food code”) where it has been globalized through the efforts of the US delegate (previous Hall of Shame “Honoree” Dr. Barbara Schneeman, head of the FDA’s Department of Dietary Supplements, no less!) and approved by the Codex Committee on Food Labeling and then by the Codex Commission.
Codex says that any information offered to consumers about the health benefits of food or food components is illegal because it is advertising as if advertising were banned. The whole thing lacks logic, but has reason: the reason is to kill nutritional medicine in favor of drugs. This process has gone dangerously far in the EU and is advancing through FDA “HARMonization” of US rules with Codex restrictions.
Remember, our video “Nutricide” is called that for two reasons.
First, “Nutricide” means the death of the body of knowledge of the relationship between health and food components
Second, “Nutricide” means the death of a large number of people through the manipulation of the food supply. You can watch this important lecture by going to www.HealthFreedomUSA.org and scrolling down the video section. It is well worth your time.
This effort to kill nutrients is blatant as blatant can be.
How blatant? This blatant. Read the excellent article below which discusses the absurd ban on a form of activated B6, Pyradoxamine, to see just how shameless this organization is. This form of B6 has been available for decades. Then remember that when we, in our numbers, push back against the FDA, experience shows that we deflect their plans. Yes, they come back again, but we do push them away from the brink time and time again. With your magnificent help.
We thank you for your activism. After reading this article, I am sure that you will agree that eternal vigilance is the price of protecting high potency nutrients and information about them, from those who want to take away our right to access natural health options, including foods that heal!
The Natural Solutions Foundation continues to fight for your health. Please “stay tuned” for action items to oppose the evil that FDA’s bureaucrats seek to perpetuate. Remember to open our Health Freedom Action eAlerts when we send them to you! Please give generously so that we can continue that fight, with you by our side.
————————————- Big Pharma and the FDA: Suppress the Science, Ban the Natural Substances, Sell the Drugs!
Michael D. Ostrolenk
Thu, Jun 11, 2009 at 12:31 AM
In 2005, an up-and-coming pharmaceutical company made a big mistake: they invested millions of dollars into developing a drug only to discover that the only active ingredient of the drug, pyridoxamine, was really a common, naturally occurring substance that has been sold for decades at low cost to consumers in the form of a dietary supplement, and has always been available in commonly consumed foods such as chicken and brewer’s yeast.
We’re taught as children that when you make a mistake, you should own up to it and face the consequences. Apparently the pharmaceutical company in question, Biostratum, Inc., has yet to learn that lesson. Instead of owning up to their mistake, Biostratum tried to game the system to their advantage by asking the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to declare supplements containing pyridoxamine “adulterated” and effectively ban anyone but Biostratum from selling pyridoxamine.
Sadly, Biostratum’s desperate ploy to save their investment worked. Earlier this year the FDA agreed to ban companies from selling pyridoxamine as a dietary supplement. They denied the request to declare products containing pyridoxamine “adulterated,” but instead they declared that such products are not dietary supplements at all—claiming they are excluded from the definition of dietary supplements under the “prior market clause” [21 U.S.C. 321(ff)(3)(B)(ii)] and so may not be marketed as such.
Please note that nowhere in the FDA’s response letter is anything said about safety concerns. In fact, the FDA’s letter specifically says that “to allow such an article to be marketed as a dietary supplement would not be fair to the pharmaceutical company that brought, or intends to bring, the drug to market.” Fair to the pharmaceutical companies? What about fairness to consumers, some of whom rely on affordable pyridozxamine supplements to provide the levels of vitamin B-6 required for their survival? Is it fair to force those consumers to pay for expensive prescription drugs and doctors’ visits to supply their B-6 needs when they could get the exact same thing for a fraction of the cost in the form of a supplement? Isn’t this why our health care system is so ineffective?
This is hardly the first time the FDA has attacked naturally occurring substances. On October 17, 2005, the FDA banned information about the health benefits of cherries from appearing on websites—scientifically proven benefits, such as tart cherries’ ability to reduce the risk of colon cancer because of the anthocyanins and cyanidin contained in the cherry. Cherries, according to the latest research, help ease the pain of arthritis and gout; reduce risk factors for heart disease and diabetes; help regulate the body’s natural sleep patterns, aid with jet lag, prevent memory loss, and delay the aging process; and helps lower body fat and cholesterol—risk factors associated with heart disease. Moreover, Scientists at Johns Hopkins have found that tart cherry anthocyanins reduced painful inflammation as well as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, indomethacin.
When the 2005 ban was instituted, the FDA sent warning letters to twenty-nine companies that market cherry products. In these letters, they ordered the companies to stop publicizing scientific data about cherries. According to the FDA, when cherry companies disseminate this peer-reviewed scientific information, the cherries become “unapproved new drugs” and are subject to seizure. The FDA warned that if those involved in “cherry trafficking” continue to inform consumers about these scientific studies, criminal prosecutions would ensue.
But fresh fruit and vegetables are not the FDA’s only target: As we reported in this newsletter recently, General Mills was recently issued a warning letter by the FDA for illegally marketing Cheerios Toasted Whole Grain Oat Cereal. The problem was the claim on the cereal box that Cheerios can lower cholesterol 4% in six weeks, and the statement on their website that “diets rich in whole grain foods can reduce the risk of heart disease.” The letter, dated May 5, 2009, called the above claims “serious violations” of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and applicable regulations. FDA stated that based on the claims made, Cheerios is now an unapproved drug, and must go through FDA new drug approval process. Note that the FDA isn’t disputing the claim. It’s disputing the company’s right to make the claim.
As one newspaper columnist humorously put it, “One of these things is not like the others: morphine, penicillin, aspirin, Cheerios. Most drugs, if taken improperly, will kill the consumer or cause substantial bodily harm. An entire bottle of aspirin at one sitting will harm or kill. If Cheerios is a drug, therefore, one should be able to commit suicide by consuming the entire box.”
For years, the FDA barred health claims about the benefits of fish oil for heart, cancer, depression, body pain, and various other conditions until a drug company paid a great deal of money to go through the approval process. This type of enforcement effectively censors scientific information and greatly restricts consumer access to scientific studies that provide valuable information.
In the case of pyridoxamine, the FDA did not act out of concern for public safety. This is about money, and about a profit-seeking corporation taking advantage of what is supposed to be a public health organization in order to save their skins.
FROM SURRENDERING ALL OVERSIGHT TO BIOTECH CORPORATIONS
LET’S TAKE THESE TWO EMERGENCIES ONE AT A TIME AND CREATE A MASSIVE PUSHBACK
1. FDA SAYS “NO SHIPMENT ACROSS STATE LINES IF STUDIES ABOUT SUPPLEMENT HAVE EVER BEEN PUBLISHED!”
FDA, both domestically and through Codex, has been trying to make information about the relationship of food and food components to health forbidden speech. That includes supplements, of course.
As if that were not bad enough, they have come up with another ploy to make it illegal to ship supplements across state lines IF THERE HAVE BEEN ANY PUBLISHED HEALTH STUDIES ABOUT ANY INGREDIENT! And we have only 5 days to stop them.
This is a diabolical, but brilliant, drug company-inspired double whammy:
Whammy Number 1 : Under proposed FDA/Codex rules you cannot tell anyone about what nutrients and supplement can do for them because they are, say the bureaucrats, not “supported” in the scientific literature (despite the science called “Biochemistry” and millions of peer-reviewed journal articles)
Whammy Number 2 : You won’t be able to get supplements if what they can do for you has ever been documented in the scientific literature, as part of any medical study.
It’s Actually Even Worse Than That
In July, 2007, The FDA Amendments Act of 2007, Public Law 110-85, was adopted by the US. Congress. With your support, Natural Solutions Foundation Health Freedom advocates fought hard to convince Senator Harkin (R-IL) and others to fight to keep the language exempting dietary supplements from the enhanced FDA power provisions in the bill in the House/Senate conference committee version, where it appeared that it might have been removed. That protective language remained the law of the United States of America, enacted as section 1011, the DSHEA Product Rule of Construction.
See our comments at that time:
The failed and corrupt FDA, however, in its relentless crusade to eliminate the rights of Americans to learn about or use the most significant economic competitor to pharmaceutical drugs has no respect for the law and no interest in either your freedom or your health. They are currently seeking comments that could lead to them promulgating regulations which would make it illegal to ship supplements across state lines. This would accomplish both definitions of “Nutricide” as I have lectured and written about for years:
Nu tri cide (3 syllables):
1. The death of the body of knowledge about the relationship between health and nutrition
2. The death of large populations through the manipulation of the food [and supplement] supply.
URGENT ACTION REQUIRED NOW
Comments close on November 25, 2008 on a new regulatory sneak attack against supplements. FDA regulations will, if the FDA succeeds, make the shipment of supplements across state lines illegal – get this – IF THE SUPPLEMENT HAS BEEN THE SUBJECT OF A CLINICAL STUDY.
If you value
* Your access to supplements and nutrients
* Your health
* Your freedom to determine what goes into your body
* Your First Amendment Rights
then I urge you in the strongest terms to click below NOW to help make sure that the FDA, at least this once, obeys the law of the land.
Last time the FDA tried something this awful, through the 2007 “Draft CAM Guidance”, the Natural Solutions Foundation alerted health freedom lovers. Time was very short then, too but as a result, 588,000+ people came to our site to tell the FDA not to continue with its plan to turn nutrients into “untested drugs” and therefore make them all illegal. The FDA system “accidentally’ crashed so “only” 198,000+ people got their comments in but FDA got the message and backed off.
We said at that time we counted their backing off as a triumph but that they would be back. Well, they are back and they are sneakier and meaner than ever.
We have enormous power in the aggregate. Now it is time to use it. Again.
Click the link below to use our power and back off the forces that are dedicated to taking away your right to use natural health options prevent and deal with illness – or even know what they can do for you – instead of high-profit drugs.
It is imperative that you tell your friends about his and have them take action, too. Forward this email NOW to your entire list with a little note at the top telling them that taking action now is vitally important to their health and to their freedom.
Emergency Number 2 Coming Right Up, Courtesy of the Lame Duck Administration
Make no mistake – as the days of the Bush Administration draw to a close, Industry shills inside the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) are ramming through regulations (which acquire the force of law once finalized) which weaken protection for human and environmental health to a degree which leaves the observer nearly speechless.
USDA has released a proposed rule gutting any meaningful oversight of GMO (genetically engineered) crops and allowing biotech companies to grow food crops engineered to produce drugs and industrial chemicals without protection for conventional or organic crops. It is imperative to remember that GMO foods are deemed “substantially equivalent” because of a 1992 Executive Order by then-President George Bush, Sr., NOT because of any scientific or epidemiological studies. It is imperative, too, to recall that the genetic material from these crops and animals enters the genetic material of humans or animals consuming it and mingles in totally uncontrolled ways with all plants once GMO crops are grown outdoors. Once mingled, there is no one on the planet who can say with certainty what the short or long term consequences of that mingling will be. All independently conducted science, however, shows, often to the surprise of the scientist, devastating health and environmental consequences.
Four years ago the FDA promised stricter oversight of GMO plants. None of the oversight promised has occurred and the new rule opens even wider holes in any regulatory restrictions despite the strong desire of US and global consumers to avoid GMO foods through labeling and selection. The new rule will make that virtually impossible:
* Biotech companies will assess their OWN crops to determine whether USDA SHOULD regulate them. Since the criteria are loose, open and subjective, the outcome is assured: no regulation.
* Biotech companies will be able to grow UNTESTED crops without any USDA oversight whatsoever, making, according to the USDA contamination of conventional and organic crops with untested GMO material “more likely”.
* This contamination does not bother USDA regulators since the new rule allows “Low Level Presence” of GMO material in BOTH conventional “organic” food, feed and seed.
* Outdoor cultivation of pharmaceutical-producing and industrial material-producing crops is allowed without supervision or restriction. The cross pollination of other plants, weeds, feed and food crops with this material is assured. The consequences include drugs and industrial chemicals ending up in our food and animal feed.
* The rule virtually assures that the DNA to produce these materials will wind up in our own DNA and that of the animals we eat. Both consumer and food industry groups have urged controls on this practice, but the USDA is determined to ignore that input.
* USDA refuses to propose any controls on GMO plants which require or tolerate high levels of pesticide or herbicide use. Insects and weeds both adapt to the presence of these toxins and become resistant to them. Chemical resistant GMO DNA mixes with the genetic material of weeds and insects: an epidemic of super weeds and pests has already resulted.
* In a move to vitiate State and local authorities from protecting farmers and consumers from these regulations, a last minute “correction” bars state or local regulation of GE crops more protective than its own weak rule.
The USDA is following the lead of the FDA by opening new loopholes which make consumer and environmental protection meaningless. The new rule will be of great benefit to Biotech companies who already have more than free reign to contaminate and then own the entire food stock of the US and beyond.
To get that message across right away, I urge you to also send this to your entire email list with a short note asking each person to take the actions here and forward the mails as well. Nothing short of your health and that of the planet is at stake.
Then click below to urge your members of Congress to support the protective legislation which Rep. Denis Kucinich (D-OH) has introduced which would take the FDA and the USDA in exactly the opposit direction – safety testing, stronger regulation and more oversight by both agencies, plus mandatory labeling.
Health and Freedom Options the FDA Wishes You Did Not Know About !
News flash! Neither the USDA nor the FDA are your friends. They do share a great deal, however: Both care a lot about keeping industry happy and nothing at all about keeping you healthy.
FDA wants you to eat what industry wants you to ingest into your body and then take drugs, lots and lots of them. FDA prohibits the labeling of genetically modified foods (which the Austrian Government has just shown decrease reproductive capacity!) It wants you to eat Codex-approved levels of hormones (no upper limits), pesticides and other dangerous chemicals (many with no upper limits) as well as free radicals from irradiation. When you get sick, either from the drugs or the routinely contaminated foods they allow, then you make the drug side of the house very, very happy!
USDA wants you to eat whatever industry wants you to eat and put dangerous chemicals, untested DNA and hormones into your body. Whether you get sick or not is of literally no concern to them.
Americans are over medicated and under ‘healthed’ according to study after study. Click below to read the two latest studies which, like the many others published around the world, show that the US has the poorest health, and gets the worst health service, in the developed world – often worse than many countries in the developing world.
Then ask yourself whether that is related to the fact that the number of filled drug prescriptions has gone up 72% in 10 years and vaccinations have gone up by an astonishing – and wildly profitable – 12800 percent during the same period.
The number of childhood vaccinations in that time has gone from 11 recommended doses to 78 for girls (75 for boys unless they, too, are vaccinated “against” HPV to “protect” a cervix they do not have) in that time. Starting at age 18, if people follow the recommendations and receive an annual flu sho (and we sincerely hope that they will not), that will add another 63 shots if you live to the expected age of 81 for a woman or 60 if you are a man and die at 78 as predicted. That’s right: a lifetime average of 141 shots for women and 135 for men IF you do not accept any other vaccinations.
FDA Does Not Want You to Know How
To Control Your Health
Take Silver, For Example. Please do!
FDA does not want you to have Nano Silver in your medicine chest. It is a nutrient traditionally effective against every pathogenic (disease causing organism) against which it has ever been tested and has no known side effects. It eliminates the need for most antibiotics and would, singlehandedly, reverse the cataclysmic problem of drug resistant bacteria and other disease agents which are a huge and looming threat to all of us. Instead of embracing a solution which has an enormous margin of safety, is hugely inexpensive compared to drugs and can be used without a prescription, the FDA has attacked silver products for decades. They do not want you to know that published studies show that it is effective against the H5N1 Virus (among all the others it kills). Click below to lay in a supply before the drug-cartel, through its government arm, succeeds in getting it off the market.
While there are many silvers on the market, only nano silver has been shown friendly to the beneficial bacteria in your body, an essential part of your immune system. And your purchase supports the Natural Solutions Foundation!
Speaking of support, times are tough but we need to keep going forward together, as this email makes clear. The other side is not out of money! They are continuing their disastrous disregard of our well-being in order to take care of their own bottom line. Both the USDA and the FDA are totally controlled by industry interests. Big Pharma sales are down about 13% because of the economic downturn so they are using regulatory powers to try to kill health products.
We rely upon your support.
Here’s how you can give it:
1. Give GMO-free, Chemical-free, Shade-Grown Valley of the Moon(TM) Coffee to evey coffee drinker on your gift list – and get some for yourself. This product is the first output of our Valley of the Moon(TM) Eco Demonstration Project in the beautiful, bountiful Chiriqui Highlands of Panama. We are teaching farmers how to grow coffee without chemicals so Valley of the Moon(TM) coffee is good for you, good for the workers and good for the planet. That’s why it is certified as a “Friendly Food” by the Natural Solutions Foundation.
By the way, we say, “Chemical Free” rather than “Organic” because we believe that the term “organic” should be reserved for products which are certified organic. We will be applying for that status next year after our coffee crop is in. No chemicals have been used on this land for at least 5 years. Everything we are using on the land and the coffee crop is totally safe and meets or exceeds organic standards. We could use the word “organic” but we feel it would be misleading since certification lies in the future but I give you my word that the Valley of the Moon(TM) coffee exceeds organic standards by a wide margin.
2. Visit our two online stores, www.Organics4U.org and www.NaturalSolutionsMarketplace.org . they are designed to make products and services available to you that we believe in and that we hope you will enjoy. If you have a product or service that you want to share with our enormous readership, please send an email to Drew at NSFmarketplace@gmail.com with “Marketplace” in the subject line. Every purchase supports your well-being and health, the wellness industry (you can see from the first item in this newsletter how serious the attacks on the supplement industry are) and supports the Natural Solutions Foundation at the same time.
3. Donate to the Natural Solutions Foundation. All US tax payers receive a 100% tax deduction for the amount of your donation. As the economy turns down, the drug companies will fight harder to kill supplements, sell hormones and drugs. The Biotech companies will fight harder to sell their dangerous “food” and “feed”.
The chemical companies will fight harder to convince people to use more of their poisons. Who is there on your behalf? Natural Solutions Foundation. You work without pay, but we have bills to pay. If every person who reads this donates a minimum of $1 per month, we will have enough money to fight this battle well. If you can give more, do it now. Click below to do it now while you are thinking about it. And let your friends and contacts know that this issue is very hot, requiring their participation, too.
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!

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.
