We're Talking. Congress is Listening

Thursday, August 30, 2007

Press release: General on Mission to DC: Calls for New Food Safety Agency

General on Mission to DC: Calls for New Food Safety Agency
August 31, 2007






What do you think happens when you walk into a Senator's (or Representative's) office and say, "Our grassroots organization, the Natural Solutions Foundation, recently mobilized 588,000+ people to use the internet to try to tell the FDA to back off their assaults on natural medicine and 197,000+ of them actually got their message through to the FDA!" or "Our supporters have sent hundreds of thousands of emails to Congress protecting health freedom and urging action on bills that are important to us."?

What happens? Congress pays attention, very, very close attention.

For the last two days, our Legislative Consultant, Charlie Frohman and the Natural Solutions Foundation have been making the rounds of the long, long halls of Congressional office buildings. We are visiting the offices of the members of Congress on the FDA oversight committee and subcommittee.

Here's what we have been telling Congress:

1. Support Health Freedom

Representatives: Become a Co Sponsor of Ron Paul's Health Freedom Protection Act HR 2117.

Senators: Introduce Sister Legislation to HR 2117.

Click here ( or here ( ) to keep the pressure up on your Members of Congress to support this legislation. And then click here ( or here ( ) to send a fax to the FDA to tell them that their unreasonable and unlawful restriction of health information is totally unacceptable to you.

Don't forget, faxing is expensive. Please remember to make a generous tax deductible donation ( to cover the cost of communicating with the FDA when they have shut down all the easy routes of getting our comments to them before the public comment period ends on September 7, 2007! And if you've already made a donation to cover these costs, thank you!


The game, you see, is that the FDA pushes its deadly agenda through Codex (where it is the dominant dog and gets whatever it wants). Then, because the standard has been accepted by Codex, the FDA brings brings home these really bad regulatory strategies and introduces them here. So the FDA is using Codex to force worse and worse food standards on the US (and global) food supplies. That way, the FDA's intent to "HARMonize" with Codex is easily fulfilled, piece by piece.

If you haven't done so yet, please take a few minutes to visit the Natural Solutions Foundation website, and watch the Codex video there to see why this game is being played, and why the game is being played. You will want to share it with everyone else you know, I am sure.

HR 2117 must be supported because it protects consumers against the FDA's attempt to take away their constitutional right to know the truth about dietary supplements and food's relationship to health. In his speech introducing this bill, Dr. Paul said, "

"The FDA continues to frustrate consumers' efforts to learn how they can improve their health....FDA bureaucrats are so determined to frustrate consumers' access to truthful information that they are even evading their duty to comply with four Federal court decisions vindicating consumers' First Amendment rights to discover the health benefits of foods and dietary supplements....

FDA bureaucrats have even refused to abide by the DSHEA section allowing the public to have access to scientific articles and publications regarding the role of nutrients in protecting against diseases by claiming that every article concerning this topic is evidence of intent to sell a drug....

Because of the FDA's censorship of truthful health claims, millions of Americans may suffer with diseases and other health care problems they may have avoided by using dietary supplements. "

2. Exercise real Congressional oversight over the FDA.

The FDA is out of control and the American people are its victims. Attacking natural medicine not only interferes with freedoms, it also means that we suffer and die from the use of dangerous phamaceuticals when simple, inexpensive, safe and effective nutrients and herbs could prevent and treat diseases. Our health costs are the highest in the world but our health is the worst among the industrialized nations. The FDA routinely uses legal and physical force to threaten, intimidate and destroy manufacturers and health practices which do not support the FDA's drug habit. Congress needs to hold hearings to investigate abuses of power routinely used by the FDA. Click here to read our Congressional One Pager:

3. Separate food and drug regulation since the FDA cannot do both jobs.

Congress needs to divest the FDA of its food regulatory responsibilities and let the FDA continue to regulate drugs and drugs only.

Congress made a deadly mistake when it created a single agency to regulate both food and drugs in 1938. The impact of clean, unadulterated food on health is to help keep people healthy. That lowers drug use which, in turn, lowers drug profits. So the rich - and very powerful - pharmaceutical industry would like nothing better than a degraded food supply to make sure that as many people as possible suffer from the chronic diseases of under nutrition: cancers, cardiovascular disease and stroke, diabetes and obesity.

Since the FDA is dependent on Pharmaceutical "Users Fees" for a good part of its operating budget, and since the people who make decisions about drugs for the FDA are up to their eye bones in financial and professional conflicts of interest (which the FDA justifies as a "fact of life"), the FDA is run for the benefit of the drug companies and their sister multinational corporations, the chemical and Biotech industries. The result? The clean, unadulterated food which the FDA should be protecting is degraded by FDA regulation to serve its Big Pharma corporate clients.

The documents in this email are available for you to use to share with your legislators when you visit them in their offices, with your local health food stores and supplement manufacturers, your local (or national) radio hosts and newspaper editors. Share this information. No one else is putting it out so each of us needs to be an information point source. Get others involved and activated. We WILL win this battle, but only if we fight it!

The Constitution of the United States says that you have natural rights which no one, and by extension, no agency, can take away from you. Help us claim those rights!

Yours in health and freedom,

For Immediate Release

General on Mission to DC: Calls for New Food Safety Agency


Retired US Army Major General Albert N. Stubblebine III has returned to the Nation's Capital to impress upon Members of Congress the importance of protecting the safety of America's food supply. Briefing Congressional staff, Gen. Stubblebine warns that giving the FDA dual responsibility for both food and drug regulation puts the nation's food supply at serious risk. Pressures on the FDA to degrade the food supply for commercial reasons linked to "Users Fees" for drug regulation lead to the diseases of under nutrition: cancers, heart disease and stroke, diabetes and obesity.

Washington DC (PRWEB) August 29, 2007 -- Retired US Army Major General Albert N. Stubblebine III, President of the Natural Solutions Foundation (http//, has returned to Washington this week for a series of briefings designed to educate Congressional staffers on pressing food safety issues. He will be recommending to senior staff members and Congressmen and women that Congress correct the basic error made in 1938 when both food and drug regulation responsibilities were given to a single agency, the FDA. Because clean food and supplements provide an economic competitor to allopathic treatments for the chronic diseases of under nutrition, powerful interests push the FDA to attack clean, natural food and remedies to support their economic interest in sales. FDA raids on companies which produce natural products and on the offices of natural health care providers are escalating under this climate of pressure. Additionally, increased FDA inspections and enforcement activities to limit health claims by small companies are also on the rise (

Continued below...




The World Health Organization (WHO) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) identify the "non-communicable preventable epidemic diseases of under nutrition" as cancers, cardiovascular disease and stroke, diabetes and obesity ( These conditions are the principle killers in the developed world and represent the lion's share of pharmaceutical profit.

Natural health advocates believe that these diseases of chronic under nutrition are best prevented and reversed by food and dietary supplements which provide the body with the nourishment it needs. They contend that the unlabeled, genetically modified, irradiated, antibiotic-, pesticide- and hormone-treated plant and animal components commonly found in the modern processed food supply are responsible for most diseases world-wide since the pattern of disease rapidly changes once an industrialized ("Western") diet is adopted ( These food production processes and treatments are currently permitted by the FDA regulations and Codex Alimentarius ( standards and guidelines.

General Stubblebine and Foundation Medical Director, Rima E. Laibow, MD, representing the Natural Solutions Foundation ( have attended, over the past several years, a series of international food regulatory meetings, including the 2007 Codex Alimentarius Commission meeting in Rome. They have also met with Heads of State, Ministers of Health, Food Production Ministers, International Codex delegates, journalists, consumer and health care activists on several continents, exchanging ideas and developing effective strategies for countries to protect their traditional natural food sources and remedies.

Codex Alimentarius, the World Food Code ("Codex") is the UN agency charged with promoting safe international food trade. Many proponents of natural foods and remedies, along with consumer advocates, consider the agency to be far too subservient to large corporate interests and hence to pose a major threat to the wide availability of wholesome, organic, non-genetically modified, unpolluted and non-irradiated foods. The historical origins of the Codex Alimentarius Commission Codex Video are available for viewing at the Foundation's website (

The General's message to Congress is contained in an Educational Briefing Document entitled: "Congressional Choice: Health Freedom or Health Tyranny".

States Gen. Stubblebine in the Educational Briefing Document:
"The Natural Solutions Foundation and its hundreds of thousands of supporters, along with the 250,000,000 million Americans who rely on dietary supplements, urge Congress to correct the basic error of the 1939 legislation which set up the FDA as an agency which regulated both food and drugs and create a new federal agency for the sole purpose of regulating foods. This new agency would have a separate unit within it responsible for IG oversight to make sure that no regulator or scientist had any conflict of interest and that consumer advocates controlled the agency's activities in a transparent and effective fashion."

In addition to the Food Safety Agency concept, the Natural Solutions Foundation is also educating Congress on the benefits of Dr. Ron Paul's Health Freedom Protection Act, HR 2117 ( , currently pending before the House of Representatives. The Foundation, which has generated a half million citizen messages to Congress and the FDA this year, is calling for public hearings on these these matters.

# # #


Thank you so much for making the Health Freedom movement the powerful expression of citizen concern it has become. We volunteer our time so your voice can be heard, but we must cover the Foundation's expenses, so your voice will have the power it deserves. Please give generously!

Act FAST: FDA Public Comment Closes September 7, 2007

YOUR Health Buzz
August 24, 2007





JUST The FAX, Ma'am!

Fact: FDA is trying to eliminate your right to scientifically based health information

Fact: New FDA Guidance on Health Claims ( Evidence-Based Review System for the Scientific Evaluation of Health Claims, Docket 2007D-0125, ) is their current tool to do exactly that

Fact: Public Comment period on this Guidance ends September 7, 2007. Direct e-comments have been blocked by the FDA because The Natural Solutions Foundation was so successful last time around mobilizing 197,000+ e-comments from the entire country!

Fact: FDA's truth-hostile policy is in line with US-led Codex attempt to take away all sources of information on health benefits of foods (including supplements) through the Codex Committee on Food Labeling's (CCFL) distorted definition of "Advertising"

Fact: You have a right to be heard on this issue under the First Amendment which has been confirmed by the US Supreme Court. The FDA is required by law to seek public comments before issuing regulations or guidances. This health and freedom right is under direct attack by the FDA's latest health-hostile guidance.


Fact: You can fax ( ) your comments to the Receiver of Dockets! Click here to send that fax and let the FDA know that you know that the agency is out of control and off track by a wide and deadly margin.

Fact: Ron Paul has introduced a The Health Freedom Protection Act, HR 2117. His excellent bill makes this FDA suppression of truthful, science-based information illegal. It would get at least one important piece of the FDA back under Congressional control. Click here ( ) to urge your Congressmen and women to join Dr. Paul in this effort to protect your freedom of speech and health information.

Fact: The FDA has declared that it will bring Codex to the US, no matter what the US law or regulations allow or prohibit. This is a perfect example of that intention on behalf, in this case, of Big Pharma. Only your concerted action will prevent this illegal stifling of information.

The FDA Does NOT Want to Hear From You.

Too Bad!

OK. Let's fact the facts: The FDA does not really want to hear what you have to say about anything. Your snail mail letters, for example, are not even tallied. According to the Supervisor of the Office of the Receiver of Dockets, they are just stored in the FDA reading room where people can look at them if they want. Your direct email comments are now blocked.

They do, however, want to hear the beautiful sound of huge high ticket "User Funds" hitting the till, the wonderful rustle of a letter saying that a grant proposal has been approved by a drug company, of the welcoming committee showing a former FDA official, now a new drug company executive around his offices which are, of course, much larger than the one he occupied at the FDA last week, of applause at a drug company sponsored "educational seminar" which the very well compensated FDA expert gives for the drug company whose product he is reviewing in the guise of a neutral scientist for FDA approval. They listen really hard for those sounds.

We know that. Consider the FDA's CAM Guidance which could criminalize just about everything Americans do to stay out of the clutches of the illness industry. First they literally hid the fact that they had put out a Guidance on CAM from December 26, 2006 to February 26, 2007. Then they made the public comment period absurdly short for such a massively important topic (only until April 30, 2007). Your comments forced them to extend it, of course. Next they made sure that their submission link for those comments was not working. No link, no comments. No public input.

The Natural Solutions Foundation called the supervisor of the Receiver of Dockets and got another link meaning that the only reliable way to submit comments was through that link. In fact, 588,000+ people tried to use it. Because of various (but predictable) attacks, "ONLY" 197,000+ comments hit the FDA's computer! Not even Washington can ignore that kind of outpouring!

But the bureaucrats who are trying to take away your freedom (and your health, remember) for the benefit of the multinationals are playing a thrust-parry-counter thrust kind of game. The FDA, no longer funded primarily by public funding, but by Big Pharma's "User Fees" (turning it into a client agency of the drug companies) is on the attack again. How can the public trust this agency to oversee food safety?

This time, when they issued their unprecedented third regulatory move hostile to natural health in less than a year they changed the rules: you can no longer submit your comments by email unless you use the FDA link which is, quite predictably, "broken" much of the time. The FDA is trying to block your comments on the very important Guidance on Health Claims. They found a way to prevent your emails and set a ridiculously short time for Public Comment during the summer vacation, no less.

So, We'll FAX Our Comments to the FDA!

And we'll fax ( or ) them by the many hundreds of thousands. And, just to make things better, when you fax through our link, even if the FDA fax runs out paper or they turn them off, the Natural Solutions Foundation has the legal record of the transmission so we can count them or print them out and deliver them if necessary. They can run, but they cannot hide from "Vox Populi", the Voice of the People, YOUR voice!

Reality Check

Faxes cost money. We have never charged for emails because, although each one costs us money to submit, we know that people are used to free emails and did not want to limit a single person from sending out those vitally important communications. So we are asking you to make a tax deductible donation ( or ) to at least cover the cost of the fax (yours and, if you can, the cost of someone else who cannot afford even a dollar).

David and Goliath: Our Collective Pockets vs. "More Money Than God"

You have heard me say it before: the other side has all the money they could possibly need. They get it by marketing illness and profiteering from suffering.

We don't.

They use their money for magnificent, but deceptive, ads to doctors and to you, vast sums of "campaign contributions" and other corrupting inputs of money, huge lobbying budgets, stock options, trips, give away goodies and seminars which are really just slick sales pitches, phony science, control of entire medical school departments through grants, a sales force of drug detail men and women pegged to the physical and sexual preferences of the the doctor being visited (by the way) and a thousand more underhanded and dangerous tricks.

We Use Your Money To:

- Educate. That includes lectures at meetings like the ones listed under "Events" on our website. No one pays our way and no one covers our expenses (often including registration at these events). We hold meetings with Congressional staff and elected representatives. Next week, General Stubblebine, Ralph Fucetola , Charlie Frohman, (our outstanding Legislative Consultant), other knowledgeable people and I will be in Washington DC to bring our health freedom agenda forward for you with decision makers, "influencers" and Congress. When we go to Washington to educate and get the audiences that are so important to the success of this battle, we stand, by the way, firmly on the base provided by your actions, your letters to Congress and your comments to the FDA. The more you have sent, the more of an ear bends toward us.

- Attend Codex and other important meetings.

- Pay for phone bills, internet connection, ink, paper and other similar expenses out of your donations.

- Purchase airline tickets and pay for hotel rooms and means when we go to countries where their leadership is willing to take action to defy the multinational agenda, grow clean food (which will then wind up in your kitchen) and take action on behalf of the health and survival of their people.

- Communicate with US government decision makers who might not be willing to hear what you want them to hear.

- Create materials like " Nutricide: the DVD " ( or ), the Codex eBook ( or ) and our highly informative new video, The Codex Two Step: Codex Options for Pro Health Nations

We Do Not Use Your Money to:

Pay salaries or legal fees to the officers and trustees of the Foundation. None. Our lawyers, the Natural Solutions Foundation President and I work without any financial compensation for what we do. None.

Pay office overhead. That's donated that to the Foundation, too.

Pay rent or mortgages. General Stubblebine and I sold our house so that we could continue doing this for you. That's where a good deal of the money we have put into the battle (and gotten this far with) has come from.

We Are Doing This So You Don't Have To

We don't expect you to sell yours or give up your job for this battle. But it is your battle. We need your action, your willingness to disseminate information and your financial support. It's that simple. There are extremely important things you can do to expand on those three items. Get involved or there won't be much left to get involved with.

Please send this email to everyone you know with a short paragraph at the top saying that this is important to you and you that you are taking the requested actions and hope that the person you are sending it to will, too. If you like, you can include a paragraph like this one sent by a supporter to their entire email list a few days ago:

"Friends, just imagine if a million people each donated just $10 to Health Freedom! just imagine how far $10,000,000 would go in this fight! If you make a donation at and then forward this to all your friends and ask them to do the same---and so on---and each of you donates a minimum of $10. (and more if you can, of course!), it's not beyond the realm of possibility to reach a million people. And surely it is as important to you as it is to me to be able to purchase the vitamins and minerals we want, and to have access to organically raised (and other non-genetically engineered) foods, etc. etc. These things are REALLY in jeopardy! Please help! (For details, please go to and sign up for the free Natural Solutions Foundation Health Freedom Alerts. Your freedom and your health are both under attack. Help preserve both of them!"

Every penny we receive goes directly to the cost of doing battle for your health freedom. Every purchase* you make from our all-Organic store, , provides you with a tax break on your supplements and health care items while it provides us with much needed income to keep on doing what we are doing in the US and internationally.

All of your deductions are tax deductible, of course, if you pay taxes in the US. And every donation makes a difference. Spread the word. And if you prefer mail to electronic donations, please feel free to send your check to

Natural Solutions Foundation
P. O. Box 772
Maryville MO 64468

Either way, THANKS!

Another Attack

In our last email, Reading the Fine Print to Get It Right! - August 21, 2007, we discussed two pieces of distortion which we felt needed correction since they were pretty important and were circulating around the internet confusing several issues. In order to preserve the dignity and decency with which the Natural Solutions Foundation always conducts itself and its affairs, we pointedly did not name names, nor did we make this a personal attack. We corrected facts which we believe to be wrong in the spirit of truth, not the unseemly attacks which are so often a part of the sickest and least productive parts of the Health Freedom movement.

Predictably, a rebuttal was forth coming. Sadly, the rebuttal was another in the series of personal attacks on me and attacks on our organization and its integrity. What none of us needs is another war of words and ill feeling.There are plenty of those around, some of them directed at the Natural Solutions Foundation. You may have noticed that we never respond to them. We do urge people who are so inclined, however, to write to the propagators of these attacks and ask to see the data upon which they rest. Since there is none, that is an interesting exercise: the replies would be funny if they were not so wasteful of time and resources.

So, suffice it to say that the Natural Solutions Foundation stands firmly behind our interpretation of the facts as presented in our most recent blast and that those facts were not only checked by me, but by our excellent legal council as well to assure compete accuracy. We do not mind debate, but we adamantly deny that vicious personal attacks have any place in winning and keeping our health freedoms.

As I said in that blast, you CAN count on the Natural Solutions Foundation for accurate, relevant, timely and helpful information. We mean what we say and we say what we mean without attacking anyone or any organization. Wouldn't it be nice if everyone in the Health Freedom arena walked on the same dry shod part of the High Road? And if they don't, why not? Who is served by all this divisiveness?

Looking forward to a huge numbers of faxes to the reluctant eyes and ears of the FDA,

Yours in health and freedom,

Reading the Fine Print to Get It Right!

As Gilbert and Sullivan noted in their satirical operetta "Things are seldom what they seem, Skim milk masquerades as cream."  It takes a good deal of work to figure out what´s skim milk and what´s cream in the health and health freedom areas and sometimes conflicting information can be confusing. The purpose of this email is to provide much needed information on two important areas currently filled with a good deal of needless confusion.

The first is a piece of seemingly good news that is really bad while the second is a piece of seemingly bad news that is really good.  Skim milk and cream, indeed! 

Nano Victory

A recent internet announcement trumpeted what is at best a minor victory in Europe, in which supplements, which are under a major assault by the restrictive and destructive European Food Supplements Directive (EFSD) garnered a legal victory such that natural source of supplements are no longer in danger, now that they are considered as foods. We agree with the basic principal: supplements are foods and therefore considered safe.

First, the background.  You probably already know that the European Union (EU) is on a path to eliminate all high dose nutritional supplements.  They passed the EFSD which gives the central government the authority to remove supplements which do not conform to their restrictive limitations on which supplements may be sold (very few) and which dosages are permitted (very low).

This Directive was challenged in the European Court system.  In fact, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) received arguments including scientific dossiers on the issues in this case in January, 2005.  The Natural Solutions Foundation as an organization and I as a physician and scientist were proud to be signatories on a scientific dossier supporting the use of high dose nutrients for health maintenance and promotion.  This document also made the point that natural source nutrients were biologically and biochemically superior to, and different from, synthetic source nutrients.  Natural source nutrients are safe, beneficial and extremely important to the health of people eating modern industrialized foods and living in a toxic world.  Synthetic ingredients are not the same as natural ones, although our FDA has taken the unscientific position that they are the same.

As an aside, the Natural Solutions Foundation feels so strongly about this that we provide an online store, , where you can access totally organic, all natural nutrients for yourself and those you care about.

You may also recall that on July 4, 2005, to the exuberant jubilation of the US Codex Manager, Ed Scarbrough, PhD., the restrictive and dangerous Vitamin and Mineral Guideline was ratified by the Codex Alimentarius Commission.  This documents literally mandates deadly under nutrition in the international trade of nutrients since, for example, permitted maximum doses of nutrients may be only 15% higher than the amount of that nutrient found in unprocessed food.  A 1000 mg Vitamin C tablet would be illegal in international trade.  So would a 500 mg one.  So would a 250 mg one.

A few days later, the ECJ gave its ruling on the legal challenge to the EFSD and ruled that it would remain intact meaning that only those permitted nutrients would survive, so effective nutritional therapy would be eliminated in the EU.  It did rule that natural source supplements might still be used, but that the doses were still far too small to satisfy the biological diversity of each person´s individual needs.

At the time, one of the organizations involved in the suit touted that as a great victory and, while congratulating the President of the organization, I questioned the meaning of a ¨victory¨ in which micro doses of natural sources were still in, but meaningful doses of either natural or synthetic nutrients were out.  His answer was "We´ll figure that out later."

Now It´s Later and the Europeans are faced with a real challenge to Health Freedom

So when an associated organization recently sent out an email trumpeting the ¨Victory¨ that allows natural source nutrients to be treated as foods, not drugs, we share their delight.  After all, we helped bring about this ruling.  The highly significant US 1994 Dietary Supplement Health and Education  Act (DSHEA) pioneered the critically important idea that nutrients are foods and, like foods, generally regarded as safe so we can have as much of them as we like, just as we can have as much lettuce or lamb or lasagna as we like.  This idea is under significant attack in this country as you will see when you read the second part of this email.

What we don´t share is their interpretation of the meaning of this confirmation. It´s kind of like when Moses came back from Mt. Zion with the tablets and all the Israelites crowded around him, eager to know what had happened.

Moses said, ¨Well, I´ve got some good news and some bad news for you¨.  The good news is that I got Him down to 10.  The bad news is that Adultery is still in.¨

The Bad News

The good news, of course, is that natural source ingredients are in.  The bad news is that nutrients, foods or not, are still limited to micro doses.  Those micro doses are intended to make sure that people eating a Codex compliant, corrupted and toxic food supply will become sick and that they will have no recourse or resource other than dangerous, expensive, ineffective pharmaceuticals.  To see more about how that works, watch my Codex lecture at or at

Now for Some Good News that Looks Bad

Everybody is entitled to make a mistake.  Congress makes them all the time.  Consider: on May 9, 2007 the Senate overwhelmingly passed the misnamed, wrongheaded, dangerous and irrational FDA Revitalization Bill, S. 1082.  By throwing power and money at an out of control, deadly and corrupt organization, the bill supposedly would curb and correct these problems.  Members of the US Senate attached some amendments to protect dietary supplements from this huge mistake of a law.  In fact, Senators Harkin, Hatch and Durbin inserted language which specifically exempts products covered by DSHEA, that is, dietary supplements, from this law. (608 - Rule of construction: nothing in this title "shall be construed to affect..." regulation under DSHEA or AER [Adverse Event Reporting] law).

The same law was railroaded through the House last month with no amendments permitted so that this vitally important protection for supplements against the determined attack of the FDA is lacking.

Natural Solutions Foundation Takes Action

You may recall that we headed for Washington to help assure that your right to chose to take dietary supplements would not fax to the ax of this really bad bill.  Ralph Fucetola visited important Congressional Offices to assure that the compromise version of the bill which would be reported out of Conference Committee would contain the protective 608 language.

The good news? We were assured that it would and that there was no danger to supplements and were thanked profusely for our diligence in focusing our large and vocal base on this issue. 

Astonishingly, yet another health freedom organization got this one wrong, big time.  They mis-read the law and took us to task for the way we read it by saying that the FDA Revitalization Act has nothing to do with Dietary Supplements, that the amendment section 6 (which includes Section 608 quoted above) deals only with pet food and our concerns about this law are unfounded.  Now we know that a lot of people give their pets dietary supplements, but Section 608 is specific and the assertion that our concern is unjustified is not only a mistake, but a pretty big blooper that has confused quite a number of people. 

Here´s the Straight Story

To quote Ralph´s recent blog on the subject at,

¨´While there are a number of bad clauses in what we call the FDA "enabling act" because it rewards a failing agency with more power to abuse, the House version of the bill does not mention foods or dietary supplements. The Senate version has an additional section 6 (sponsored by Senator Durbin) which was originally inspired by recent bad food (including pet food) imports.

That section is about food safety and establishes an "adulterated food registry." Even after assurances from Senator Kennedy, on the Senate record, that the law would not be used against food supplements, Senator Harkin and the others demanded that language protecting dietary supplements be added to the law. They were supported in this by thousands of constituent messages to Congress through the Natural Solutions Foundation web site.¨

The Natural Solutions Foundation knows that the proposed statutory language was so vague that it actually allowed FDA more room to attack supplements, not less. Thus, while not supporting the bill, we do applaud section 608 since it protects supplements from what bill supporters claim would be an unlikely attack on supplements but which we see as a continuing attempt by the drug industry and their captive legislators and regulators to knock out the opposition to drug use: health, especially in the form of dietary supplements.

If the food safety section 6 remains in the final law, we are assured by our friends "on the Hill" the DSHEA product exemption will remain in place.

Ralph makes a really interesting point. ¨Those who criticize us apparently trust the FDA rather more than we do. We, on the other hand, agree with Dr. Ron Paul, who earlier this year called an FDA move against alternatives "an abuse of FDA power..."

Giving the FDA more power, more money from Big Pharma´s ¨User Fees¨ and more incestuous conflicts of interest will allow it to continue its stated policy of 'harmonizing' our health freedoms to international restrictions.  That means only one thing: Codex.  The EU EFSD is the result of harmonization with Codex.  Is that what we want?

We reject that approach and will continue to be a strong voice for freedom of choice in healthcare. That is consistent with the purpose of the Natural Solutions Foundation's: to protect and promote health freedom in the US and around the world.

One of the ways we do that is to educate Congress and decision makers about Natural Solutions that will enable people to control their own healthcare decisions. And, with your support, that is exactly what we will be doing in a week or so, with another trip to Washington DC where we will meet yet more health policy aides to more members of Congress.

We believe this election season will provide a unique opportunity to educate decision makers on the benefits to be expected from reducing the FDA's power, not enhancing it.  Keep this just between us, but we have good reason to believe that a broad coalition is forming around the idea that the time has come to separate food regulation from drug regulation.

We need your help to do this. Your messages to Congress and your donations.

Amazing Victory for Health Freedom in America

Amazing Victory for Health Freedom in America

By Rick Shalvo
Health Freedom Advocate

One of the greatest physicians of our time, board-certified oncologist and anti-aging specialist James Forsythe, M.D., H.M.D., has finally been cleared of any wrongdoing and elevated to the level of protocol opinion leader after a long series of vicious attacks initiated by a rogue FDA agent. These attacks were then perpetuated by the U.S. Attorney's office in the form of a criminal indictment and an unrelenting investigation.

The appropriate use of natural hormone replacement therapy for wellness, and wonderful supplements such as Poly MVA (palladium lipoic complex) for cancer patients, have been vindicated as well.

The FDA agent who told Dr. Forsythe's cancer patients that the Poly MVA they were taking was "poison" must now swallow the poison of knowing that his attack on those patients' health freedom has ended in complete and utter failure?a great victory for cancer patients everywhere.

Appropriate use of Poly MVA for cancer patients has prevailed against a vicious attack prompted by its own success. The FDA began this particular attack in 2005 after concluding that the reported remission rates among those patients in the Poly MVA study were "too good to be true."


Arm Raids on Vitamin ShopsCharges against Dr. Forsythe were based on an allegation regarding the primary source of the human growth hormone he was innocently ordering from a licensed pharmacy in Carson City, Nevada. It is now quite clear that this was a smokescreen excuse contrived in an effort to justify tormenting Dr. Forsythe to prevent him from continuing his outstanding work with cancer patients.

James Forsythe M.D. Cleared of Any Wrongdoing

Reno, NV - Well known Nevada medical oncologist and anti-aging physician, James Forsythe M.D., H.M.D. was cleared today of any wrongdoing in a thirty month federal investigation and criminal indictment by the Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Attorney's office into the use of human growth hormone.

"It was unfortunate that this investigation was ever initiated. Everyone now understands that questioning the use of human growth hormone was terribly misguided, and I am grateful to be vindicated," says Forsythe.

Dr. Forsythe's attorney Kevin Mirch says not only has justice been served but the FDA has requested that Forsythe author the very first protocols for the use of human growth hormone in the medical community across the nation. "This is the first time in the history of the FDA that they have asked a doctor in private practice to draw up the guidelines for using a drug," says Mirch, and adds, "This is a complete reversal of their original intentions when they went after my client two years ago."

Forsythe, age 68, has been a pioneer in integrative therapies and wellness medicine for more than thirty years. His Century Wellness Clinic and Cancer Screening and Treatment Center of Nevada have drawn thousands of patients from all over the world and have also turned Forsythe into an educator in his own profession.

"There is far too much misunderstanding in the medical establishment as to the efficacy of a number of alternative therapies such as hormone replacement therapy." says Forsythe. "I'm sure this has been a learning experience for the FDA and the federal government and I am looking forward to working with the FDA in educating medical professionals and regulatory officials as to the best uses for human growth hormone.

Forsythe, a retired Army colonel and doctor in Vietnam, has been through many tough situations in his life but says that the last two years have been the most difficult. Not only did he know that what he was going through was totally unjustified, but the investigation was also placing a tremendous burden on his ability to treat more patients.

"I have never lost my passion to bring healing and hope to as many people as possible. I can increase my patient work load again now that the federal government has seen fit to drop all charges and even go as far as to encourage me to keep doing what I've been doing all along."

Health Freedom Protection Act

From a previous article by Rick Shalvo
May 17, 2006


H.R. 4282, the Health Freedom Protection Act, introduced by Congressman Ron Paul, MD (R-Texas) et al., is clearly the most important piece of health-related legislation in Congress at this time. The act would allow dietary supplement producers to exercise their First Amendment right to notify the public when scientific evidence regarding a supplement's health benefits has been validated.

All such claims would be scrutinized by the FDA before being approved and the FDA would retain its authority to attack false or misleading claims. The agency would not, however, be able to continue its present practice of either completely prohibiting or arbitrarily censoring all dietary supplement health claims, which it has done even when overwhelming evidence confirms lifesaving health benefits accompanied by huge health care cost reductions.

Federal censorship of the valid claim that adequate consumption of omega-3 fatty acids significantly reduces the risk of sudden death heart attack, for example, absolutely contributes to the fact that America's heart attack death rate remains so appallingly high. During the past 12 years, while heart attacks have taken the lives of an estimated six million Americans, we have known all along that a substantial percentage of these deaths could have been prevented with the omega-3 nutritional intervention. Why, then, does the FDA-approved language for omega-3 fatty acids shortchange the truth that can literally save lives?

I must tell you that I am not a paid lobbyist or a dietary supplement industry insider. I'm a cancer survivor who supports clinical and in vitro cancer research.

Dietary supplements that happen to be extraordinarily effective as anti-cancer agents would represent an enormous economic threat to the therapeutic sector and to the many people who have collectively invested astronomical amounts of money in the public corporations that profit from the cancer therapy status quo. If such supplements exist, they should be thoroughly studied and the data should be published.

In fact, such supplements do exist, and the FDA is doing everything in its unrestrained power to undermine these supplements by sabotaging the science that supports their safety and efficacy.

One characteristically vicious campaign began on the morning of February 16, 2005 with an ambush at the home of a board-certified oncologist in Reno, Nevada who is using a remarkably safe palladium lipoic supplement to save the lives of many Stage IV cancer patients - patients who have already tried and failed conventional therapy. This oncologist, Dr. James Forsythe (Retired Colonel, US Army Medical Corps), has been conducting an outcome-based cancer study and periodically reporting the unprecedented data to his colleagues.

Federal agents forced Dr. Forsythe to lie down on the floor of his home exercise room, held a gun to his head and raided his entire house while another squad was raiding his medical offices, seizing confidential patient files, computers and many other business and personal items, obviously terrifying his wife, staff and patients in the process. The government's attempt to justify these horrific raids is mind-bogglingly absurd, involving some convoluted story about "the supplier of one of his suppliers." Although the "supplier's supplier" story has absolutely nothing to do with Dr. Forsythe's impeccably administrated cancer study, obstructing the cancer study ultimately became the focus of the raiders' obsession.

The FDA's seek-and-destroy tentacles have now stretched from Nevada to New York. Once again finding the science to be unblemished, the FDA has resorted to intimidation tactics to make life miserable for a prominent scientist at Stony Brook University who has identified exactly how palladium lipoic complexes induce apoptosis (cellular suicide) in cancer cells while supporting natural healing processes in normal cells.

An enacted Health Freedom Protection Act may clear the way for the free flow of truthful health information, but the FDA's outrageous abuse of power will likely intensify as the agency will surely redouble its efforts to attack scientists who are engaged in research that may give rise to such information.

In this great nation, government censorship that contributes to our horrendous morbidity and mortality statistics and police-state raids on the homes and offices of honorable, superbly credentialed health care professionals are atrocities of unspeakable magnitude.
