I am sick of the republicans and the democrats. Now John McCain himself, the republican candidate from last year, remember him, the one that made Bob Dole seem vibrant? Well, McCain is trying to ban all supplements now. These guys make me sick, how many people die each year from aspirin and over the counter pain medications? A hell of lot that’s how many not to mention the tens of thousands that die from pharmaceutical drug interactions and other simple reactions to prescribed medications. To be honest, the numbers might be even higher but I’m to ticked off to bother to go lookup the stats.

From http://libertycoalition.net/john-mccain-files-bill-attacking-your-access-suppl

The Dietary Supplement Safety Act (DSSA) would repeal key sections of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA). It would give the FDA full discretion and power to compile a discreet list of supplements allowed to remain on the market while banning all others.

Everyone knows that the FDA is friendly to drug companies (which pay its bills and provides good revolving door jobs) and hostile to supplement companies. Under this bill, this same Agency could quite arbitrarily ban any supplement it wished or turn it over to drug companies to be developed as a drug and sold for multiples of its price as a supplement.

If McCain’s bill passes, we can look to Europe for a snapshot of what we may be in for: EFSA, the European Food Safety Authority, has sharply reduced the list of available supplements and is in process of reducing potencies to ridiculous levels, such as less beta carotene than can be found in half of a large carrot. Europeans already look to the US to obtain their dietary supplements. If this bill passes, where will we obtain ours?

Please take action immediately. Tell your senators NOT to co- sponsor the detrimental legislation and to do everything in their power to defeat it. Then forward this to your friends and family and ask them to do the same!

If you want to do something about it see this site, you can automatically send letters to your representatives from this site, please take action.

Feel free to do so (I just hope I don’t receive a bunch of spam or junk mail as I used their site because they made it so easy. I wouldn’t donate to these guys).

02/04/10 – UPDATE: while the fake "Food Safety" Bill S510 remains stalled in the Senate, after our November Blitz sent more than 150,000 emails to the Senate over one long weekend, this week Sen John McCain announced that he was offering another "Safety" bill, this one aimed at the type of food called "Dietary Supplement" in a blatant attempt to undermine your freedom to access high potency vitamins, minerals and other dietary supplements which Americans have enjoyed since a unanimous Congress adopted the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA). The McCain bill seeks to overthrow major provisions of the law and force "HARMonization" with international Codex Alimentarius (so-called "World Food Code") restrictions on our food and health freedoms.

And to John McCain and all the other politicians, you disgust me, you’ve sold your souls to the highest bidder and are dooming millions of Americans to a horrible to death and even worse the despair that will come with it. I truly believe that, because I am alive for one reason, my right to purchase supplements.

I’m mad as hell at all members of both parties, this country is a disaster, I’m sick of these cradle to grave types. They’re going to learn that many Americans still want to live free and when it comes down to it will fight for those rights as guaranteed by the United States Constitution.

Hopefully you will send your letter through the site above, I certainly did.

Comments on: "John McCain Trying to Take Away our Supplements" (6)

  1. Big trouble with this one. Canada has Bill C6. They are really ramping up the control on food and nutrition. We will be forced to spend more time growing our own food, but with who’s seed? Who ever thought basic rights to good food and health would come down to the same level as illegal contraband. America is the final stronghold of true freedom. I regularly shop across the border to get supplements that can’t be had in Canada.

    Dear Mr. C,
    That exact same thing is happening here in Canada despite petions for the last 20 years supporting freedom of choice. They are playing on peoples’s fear (re unclarity of dosages) in order to control the market to get more money.
    The mega corporations really are sociopaths if they are truly a “person” and should be charged accordingly..we need a whole company of Erin Brocoviches..it they are out of work..this would be an excellent project to help humanity.
    We have to keep protecting our freedoms..the womans movement found that out, when they founded John Hopkins hospital..neglected to stay on the board, and lost their admittance to that medical school.
    So you can get it, or have it, and ..loose.. your freenom of choice.
    We have to use our energy, to resist these forces of corporate greed ..disguised as “protecting” you in a post 9/11 world. I’m talking about vitamins not security.
    Go look in the vitamin section of your local drug or grocery store and see how sterile and “dominated by monopolies of mega corporations” it can become.
    Then we have the wonderful Bernard Jensens(juice), even Kellog(roughage) started out being a good guy.
    Some people who have illnesses need the better quality food..and truthfuilly we all deserve it.
    My dad planted a little garden under the grapefruit tree in Duneeden near Tampa.
    Yes he was a French Canadain snow-bird…with no accent..good at languages I guess. He said the fruit was better when it fell off the tree, and was not refridgerated…didn’t have that bitter taste.
    Organic should be cheaper..and thanks to all the wonderful organic farmers who paved the way from the boomer generation in California…we appreciate you.
    I re read your site re what is causing this “M” mycoplas something..forget but it is related to the mycotoxin from the fungus from Siberia as I thought..modified to be “worse” amd too small to detect.3 or less microns.
    Thank you so much Mr. C for your encouragement and your awesome site.
    Sincerely, Sherry Taylor

  3. Thanks for the notification, it’s hard to believe the collusion between our government and corporate interests. And how far they will go to monopolize the market and limit what we can eat and how we nourish ourselves. It’s getting to the point where nothing they say is true, everything is charged with “unintended consequences” and soon they will be force-feeding us only what they want us to eat!

  4. All of the politicians, all applicable government agencies, the higher institutions of learning, the medical schools, the research community, the media, the insurance industry, the hospitals and most of the doctors have been lulled into a deep sleep while sucking on the toxic breast of Big Pharma.

    The matrix is really not that far off from reality…

    Your representatives need to hear loud and clear your intention to work hard against their reelection if they stand with this evil agenda to steal your freedom and your health.

  5. Hiya Mr.C,

    Would you mind posting this critical information on my web site?

    God bless, never give up hope!

  6. Mr. C., thanks for this all important and informative post. I myself am a a big nutritional user, and love to research different supplements and nutritionals that are on the market. In today’s society of pre-packaged garbage and “instant” meals, the idea of ‘home cooking’ has pretty much gone out the window. I always have my own garden in the summer, especially to grow high priced grocery items such as tomatoes. Nothing tasted like a fresh vine ripened tomato, and the thought that someone might be able to take that privilege away from me really pisses me off. I also blog about health and nutrition, and would love to refer to some of our information in my blogs and even give you some link juice back to your blogs. I feel that this is a very important matter that should get out to as many people as possible, especially those in my home-based business, as it deals with this very subject. Thanks again for this great information, and believe me, I sent in my signature to get this stopped. I have subscribed to your posts and will definitely be reading more of your great posts.
