**************HEALTH FREEDOM OR TYRANNY**************
Our Health freedoms are coming under attack by the FDA "experts" (the same corrupt officials who re-approved Vioxx after it killed over 50,000 Americans). They say they want to re-classify things like Fruit or vegetable juices, herbs, vitamin supplements, even healing services as "unauthorized" medical treatments, to either raise the prices for these products or to make them illegal to sell. They want to regulate Alternative health and insist that people take pharmaceuticals rather than natural substances. They want more profits for the drug companies.
The FDA is accepting public comments on the docket until April 30th. They tried to sneak this under the radar, but word got out and now the natural health community is up in arms over this rule. If you wish to protect your access to nutritional supplements, herbs, essential oils, homeopathic medicine or any other "complementary" or "alternative" modality, it is crucial that you take action to post your comments with the FDA right now and write your representatives in Washington to put a stop to this outrageous effort to destroy natural medicine. (And be sure to really write them. Just sending an email has virtually no impact compared to writing a physical letter in your own words.)
See the document for yourself.
Here is an except from that document
..."biologically based practices" includes, but is not limited to, botanicals, animal-derived extracts, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, amino acids, proteins, prebiotics and probiotics: whole diets, and "functional foods". ...a botanical product intended for use in treating a disease would generally be regulated as a drug." ..."functional foods" may be subject to FDA regulation as foods, dietary supplements, or drugs under the Act.
Translation: All foods, supplements, superfoods and functional foods may be reclassified as drugs by the FDA, then regulated off the market.
You might want to contact the FDA and let them know what you think of the proposed guidelines. Make sure to include the docket # (No. 2006D-0480) with your comments. You can write to them at:
Dockets Management Branch (HFA-305)
5630 Fishers Lane, Rm. 1061
Rockville, MD 20852
There was an online site, but surprise[!] it's been hacked.try this site to contact the FDA concerning this fiasco.
I want to stop right here and post the real cost of pharmaceuticals:
The first item in the list is the name of the drug and the dosage, the second is the cost to the consumer, the third; the actual cost to the drug company for 100 tabs, the last number is the percentage of the mark-up.

Over the years we've heard about the reports that this supplement or that alternative medicine "has been proven unreliable, by scientific testing by the minions of the FDA, then we find out the findings are skewed, or slanted or they used only part of the supplement to test, not the whole plant. They tell us if one person has a difficulty with a single herb, then that herb must be banned, yet thousands have died from Vioxx, [for one..] and it has been put back on the market, and the people going to their doctor are trusting their physician and taking this poisonous drug.
Read what's out there, and decide for yourself but do it quickly because if the FDA has their way there will be no more choice.
As for me and for now I'm taking: CellPower™ because for one thing it does have lots of digestive enzymes in it.
Also: SELENIUMhelps immune system,fights infection and aids circulation
~MAGNESIUMhelps to relax you, aids stress and muscle relaxing
~CHROMIUMimproves insulin sensitivity, and helps lower blood sugar.
~ZINC especially to help you heal.
I also eat, one of the best fats for the Omega-3~6 balance and losing weight.

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the "Peanuts" comic strip. You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just read the e-mail straight through,and you'll get the point.
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America Contest.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.
How did you do?
The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. They are not second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.
Got Any Grapes
A duck walks into a bar and asks, "Got any grapes?" The bartender, confused, tells the duck that no, his bar doesn't serve grapes. The duck thanks him and leaves.
The next day, the duck returns and says, "Got any grapes?" Again, the bartender tells him that, no, the bar does not serve grapes, has never served grapes, and, furthermore, will never serve grapes. The duck, a little ruffled, thanks him and leaves.
The next day, the duck returns, but before he can say anything, the bartender begins to yell: ''Listen, duck! This is a bar! We do not serve grapes! If you ever ask for grapes again, I will nail your stupid duck beak to the bar!''
The duck is silent for a moment, and then asks, ''Got any nails?''
Confused, the bartenders says no.
''Good!'' says the duck. ''Got any grapes?''
A man walked into a bar and the bartender said, "Don't touch the purple monkey up in room 222." The man sneered and went straight up to room 222 and opened the door. There sitting right in front of him was a purple monkey.
The man laughed again and touched the monkey. He then started down the stairs...the monkey was following him. The man went outside and got into his jeep. The monkey got in the back seat. The man ignored him.
Later the man drove to the Eiffel Tower. The man got out of the car and the monkey followed. Later the man finally reached the top, but the monkey was right behind him.
The man just burst and yelled, "What do you want!"
The monkey came up to him and said, "Tag...you're it.

One day a florist goes to a barber for a haircut. After the barber finished the cut, the florist asked about his bill and the barber replies, "I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week." The
florist was pleased and left the shop.
When the barber goes to open his shop the next morning, there is a 'Thank You' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.
Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replies, "I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing
community service this week." The cop is happy and leaves the shop.
The next morning when the barber goes to open up, there is a 'Thank You'
card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.
Later that day, a college professor comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replies, "I cannot accept money
from you. I'm doing community service this week." The professor is very happy and leaves the shop.
The next morning when the barber opens his shop, there is a 'Thank You' card and a dozen different books, such as "How to Improve Your Business" and "Becoming More Successful."
Then, a Congressman comes in for a haircut, and when he goes to pay his bill the barber again replies, "I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week." The Congressman is very happy and leaves the shop.
The next morning when the barber goes to open up, there are a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.
And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the members of our Congress!
My blessing today is may you live in a healthy environment, may your waistline be tiny and your wallet fat.
