Hello everybody. I’m back!
The Maya say, at the end of this age and the beginning of the next, all things not done in integrity will collapse. The comfort lies in the fact that this collapse is a normal part of the cycle. So let’s take a look, to see if collapse is the cycle we are living in right now. Are our banks, our governments, our institutions, and even our religions now collapsing around us? Looks like it to me. Isn’t this exciting everybody, that a brand new era of wonderment is coming and we are a part of making that change? We are not observers, we are participants.
This edition’s That Ain’t Nothin’ is about the FDA and the pharmaceutical companies. On just about every bottle containing something that’s good for us, that is not a drug, you will find this statement: “These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and this product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.” How many of you have seen this warning?
The pharmaceutical companies and the FDA designed legislature, and made it into law, that the only thing that can diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease is a drug. The health food and nutritional industry went to war and got our legislature to enact controls called the DSHEA Law. It means that the FDA cannot regulate nutritional supplements.
Walnuts... Classified as Drugs?!?!
Now let’s get to the “all things not in integrity” point. The Food and Drug Administration, (the FDA) because of the regulations passed, has declared walnuts, cherries, and pistachios to be drugs. THEY CAN REGULATE DRUGS. So, if you eat walnuts, cherries, or pistachios without a prescription and for the purpose of preventing disease, or treating any perceived systemic deficiencies (e.g. raising for healthier blood), you are taking illegal drugs. The DSHEA Law means that the FDA cannot regulate nutritional supplements or foods. Therefore, the reason why the FDA declared those products drugs is because they make health care claims about the value of these foods that were peer review accepted science.
Because of the FDA pharmaceutical law, if Diamond foods were going make health care claims on the benefits of consuming walnuts, they would then have to be approved under a New Drug Application, which would entail years of research and multiple studies. So, if they did not take the health care claims off, their product would be seized and destroyed. How crazy is that?
On the web site and the packaging, the company stated that the omega-3 fatty acids found in walnuts had been shown to reduce risk of heart disease and some types of cancers. They had 57 published articles supporting the scientific research and no fewer than 35 published papers supporting the claim that ingesting walnuts improves vascular health and may reduce heart attack risk.
Get this! The FDA letter continues, “We have determined that your walnut products are promoted for conditions that cause them to be classified as drugs.” Insanity like this, everybody, helps us understand why the Boxes of Knowledge said, “the battle for the souls of humankind will be fought in healthcare.” So, are we in a healthcare crisis? Are we watching our natural and complementary healthcare protocols being attacked? Has the healthcare profession (FDA/pharmaceutical companies/doctors) come to think of themselves as gods? Are they controlling our lives, dictating our health care, trying to protect their territory? Is there a World Health Organization, promoting a program called The Codex, which in Europe, now makes vitamin C a prescription drug. Please visit www.codexfund.com.
Vitamin D in Drugs!?!
In the FDA letter, it says one of the reasons you can’t eat walnuts is that walnut consumption, defined as a drug, must be regulated by a healthcare professional or doctor. They’re surely protecting their territory. I believe, everybody, that the healthcare organizations and our governmental organizations, that were designed to protect us, are literally trying to screw us.
Remember, all this is about telling the truth about one nut and its ability to help maintain proper health, and the conspiracy against us, that keeps the cost of our health care very high and out of reach for many of us.
Let me give you one last example of why we must support complementary and alternative medicine and energetic medicine. Vitamin D has been proven to be one of the most effective tools against macular degeneration. It has many other proven health benefits, but it is a natural substance, unpatentable by the pharmaceutical companies. As of today, four separate pharmaceutical companies have come up with patentable solutions, with vitamin D in them, and will market them as drugs, even though it’s no more than just vitamin D in that solution. I can’t wait to see the difference in price between $5.98 and the new compound drug.
The FDA should be protecting us from fluoride in our water and mercury in our fish, pesticides, steroids, and genetically engineered or modified food. In these efforts, it appears to be failing, so our 21st century mandate is to protect ourselves. Now, in addition to that burden, we are more and more frequently called upon to protect ourselves from the FDA.
I'll take some Monsanto, please.
Bill Gates bought 500,000 shares of Monsanto and then stated at DAVO, an international meeting of all the big boys, and then stated that we need to genetically engineer food, to keep the planet from starving. Go figure.
Just some background, everybody, on the fact that we have to see the collusion and betrayal of our government, working in concert with pharmaceutical and agribusiness, to control what we eat, what we are prescribed to take when we’re ill, and an example like what happened with Diamond Foods. Here’s a little more background on the FDA and its official history.
Today the history of the FDA has been rewritten to position it as a Consumer Protection Agency. Because they have lobbied for expanded authority over the years, the FDA now has regulatory authority over products that account for at least 25% of every dollar spent in America. In 1906, the FDA moved to federalize food safety laws and take the power from the states, with the passage of the pure food and drug act. This prohibited the interstate commerce in adulterated and misbranded food and drugs.
The FDA has been empowered over the years, through the passage of regulations to suppress the sharing of truthful information, from both consumers and public peer reviewed scientific studies. Here are a few examples:
In 2005, the FDA threatened cherry growers. According to the FDA, when the cherry companies disseminated proven scientific information about the benefits of eating cherries, the cherries become an illegal drug, subject to seizure, because the scientific studies showed benefits in the prevention, mitigation, treatment, and cure of some diseases. Then the FDA warned cherry growers that, if they were involved in cherry trafficking and continued to inform the consumer about these scientific studies and their benefits, they would be criminally prosecuted. Remember everybody, we only talking about pure cherry juice. So, if you tell the truth about a natural product that you grow, and if its nutritional benefits are proven to prevent, treat, or cure a disease, you can go to jail, according to the FDA.
Hey everybody, take a look at what the FDA did, in 2008, to Brownwood Acres Food, Inc. Who do you think the FDA is really protecting?
These multinational corporations of insurance and pharmaceutical companies are working in concert with the World Health Organization to control everything we eat and how we treat the illnesses that this process causes. If you want to know what your next illness is, read the side effects of the drugs you are now taking.
Dr. Paul! The Man with the Plan.
Here are two more: In 2011, the FDA made a raid on an Oregon business, based on testimonials sent in by buyers and consumers of the product, testifying to the success of their nutraceutical product. The FDA said that their labeling was incorrect, but as it turned out, the FDA’s biggest problem was that people were saying that the product was working for them. And once again, we have something preventing, treating, or mitigating an illness. I would like also to say that the very moment this happened, Ron Paul filed a Bill forcing the government to allow people’s personal testimonies about how a product worked for them. Dr. Paul’s Bill, HR2908, the Testimonial Free Speech Act, is a good Bill because it is short and to the point. It forbids any federal agency from curtailing the sharing of consumer testimonials about the benefits of foods, including supplements.
Another great Bill is HR3380, Dietary Supplement Protection Act of 2011, introduced by Rep. Dan Burton. It’s in response to the FDA’s Draft Document Guidance on new dietary ingredients. The Bill moves to change the grandfathering in of data from the DSHEA law, between 1994 and 2007. What this means is the FDA is trying to take control of how you formulate supplements, by reducing the quantity of the ingredients that would make the product effective in the prevention or treatment of an illness.
One of the best new Bills is HR1354, Science Free Speech Act of 2011, introduced by Rep. Jason Chavetz. This Bill would allow for companies to share truthful scientific information on their products, including claims to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent a specific disease or a class of diseases, such as cancers.
Now, what can we do to help? First, be sure to learn more and sign the FDA petition by going here or here. Second, please write your congressmen and ask them the disposition of these three important Bills. Please, everybody, they have to pass! We must protect ourselves, by being informed and taking action.
Because we are now in the battle for the kind of health care, at a lower cost, I believe that the vision I was sent here to complete, –it’s time is now. We must understand and respect medical freedom. Please everybody, remember this. A wise medical doctor said this about our right to choose medical treatments, “Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize itself into an undercover dictatorship. To restrict the art of healing to one class of men, and to deny equal privilege to others, would be to constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic.”
This was said by Dr. Benjamin Rush, patriot, war hero, and signer of the Declaration of Independence. This is where we stand today. The battle against the government, from controlling our health care, is the true battle of freedom. What would you not do to protect your parents, yourself, or your children or grandchildren, if the government in collaboration with the insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies get that right? With that goes your freedom.
Aspire to inspire before you expire.
