Two Charts that Prove the Government is Making You Sick

Two Charts that Prove the Government is Making You Sick.  Today is devoted to fighting the governmental rape of our freedom of choice in our health
 and the foods and nutritional supplements we choose to use.
"A proposed draft policy on dietary supplements could effectively kill your right to purchase nearly all of your favorite natural vitamins and supplements

  • The proposed policy treats vitamins and other supplements as if they are drugs but many manufacturers will not be able to afford the FDA drug trial process. This could either force supplement companies out of business or make supplements so expensive you won't be able to afford them.

  • The open comment period on the FDA's proposed guidelines expires on September 30, 2011; act now to help protect your health freedom You need to act now if you hope to have any chance to keep your right to preserve your supplements."


    Supplements Don't Kill – but Drugs Do

    S.1310: Dietary Supplement Labeling Act of 2011, introduced at the end of June by U.S. Senator Richard Durbin (D-Illinois) is trying to treat vitamins as if they are drugs, allegedly to "improve the safety of dietary supplements," which implies that supplements must be a major safety hazard to begin with. Durbin's bill goes hand-in-hand with new FDA regulations that amend the definitions for new dietary ingredients (NDI's), and together, they can threaten your health and freedom of choice, and further serve to strengthen the fatally flawed paradigm of health and medicine.
    An estimated 106,000 hospitalized patients die each year from drugs that, by medical standards, are properly prescribed and administered, and an estimated two million more suffer serious side effects..." 
    "...Legal DRUGS are killing massive numbers of people, not vitamins and supplements. Unfortunately, one reason for all these drug deaths could be the lax way the FDA "regulates" the drug industry by not requiring that all serious events in a trial be made public:
    "When a clinical trial that is undertaken by drug companies shows that a drug has serious side effects, there is no law that says that study has to be published or made public in any way," Dr. Dean says in her book.
    Vioxx is a perfect example of a product that was approved without having published all the clinical studies where serious events that resulted in the deaths of over 60,000 people were discovered..."
    Death by Denial is Government's Most Egregious Sin
    "This story is one with many chapters. From misleading statements about the safety of vaccines to deliberate denial of the benefit of certain herbs, vitamins and supplements, I think you can see how the government keeps you sick by denying the benefits of complementary and alternative strategies and treatments while telling you to just shut up and take your medicine – without acknowledging that most prescription medicines don't work on most people who take them.
    That comment, by the way, is straight from the horse's mouth – in 2003 a senior executive at GlaxoSmithKline, Allen Roses, said:
    "The vast majority of drugs – more than 90 percent – only work in 30 or 50 percent of the people. I wouldn't say that most drugs don't work. I would say that most drugs work in 30 to 50 percent of people. Drugs out there on the market work, but they don't work in everybody."

    See my other post today "If you want to keep your supplements, get involved now" that has the form letters to use to protest this rip off of our freedom to choose our health and nutritional supplements, etc.  Thank you.
