Protect Our Supplements

  Dietary supplements are big business.  They take in billions of dollars in sales every year. Consequently, with the help of our politicians and news media, the pharmaceutical industry would do anything to protect their market shares.

In addition, prevention is not the main focus of the pharmaceutical industry in the US.  The reason is because they don’t make money when we are healthy.  The same goes for the politician, i.e. they don’t get contributions when there is no crisis. Also, if the media did its job in reporting about the pharmaceutical industry they would not get the advertising funds from the pharmaceutical interests.

The scenario looks like this:

Over-the-counter dietary supplements are the primary source of competition for the pharmaceutical industry.

  • Americans spend $27 billion on dietary supplements; pharmaceutical interests want to re-route the money to their bottom line.
  • In order for the federal government and the medical industry to control health care completely, over-the-counter supplements must be banned or reduced to an ineffective dosage.
  • With Medicare spending projected to increase to $900 billion by 2018, the Feds are looking for ways to trim cost and dietary supplements are on the Feds’ radar screen as a cost-cutting measure, thus providing more incentive for pharmaceutical interests to gain control of supplements.
  • DSHEA (Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994) presents a problem for conventional medicine. DSHEA gives Americans the right to purchase safe, over-the-counter supplements in useful dosages.
  • The FDA is currently attempting to undermine and re-write DSHEA by re-defining the terms regulating dietary supplements in its new Draft Guidance.  NDI (new dietary ingredients) is a side door which provides an indirect way to decimate the dietary supplement industry by increasing the cost to manufacturers in the name of providing a higher degree of “safety” for products appearing on the market after 1994, resulting in increased seizure of products and driving smaller companies out of business.  The newer products which could disappear include supplements such as the Ubiquinol form of CoQ10, Resveratrol, Grape Seed Extract, Pycnogenol,  Alpha Lipoic Acid, N-Acetyl-Cysteine, Green Tea Extract, etc. Details may be found in the FDA’s “Draft Guidance for Industry: Dietary Supplements: New Dietary Ingredients: Notifications and Related Issues.”
  • On the international front, the U.S. signed the World Health Organization’s trade agreement, Codex Alimentarius, which may supersede the laws of the countries signing it. Countries not in compliance are considered holdouts and may not be allowed to trade. Codex has the potential to override our DSHEA if the FDA doesn’t undercut it first.
  • When pharmaceutical interests control the supplement industry, conventional medicine will control health care options.

We depend on supplements to support our health, especially for many who take prescription drugs. A take-over of dietary supplements by conventional medicine is not acceptable.

Chemtrails or Dust

Chemtrails or Dust

By  Ginny Linn

The following article in The Sacramento Bee is misleading (that’s putting it mildly).  It tries to blame the increase in asthma on dust!  When in reality it is from the “weather modification” taking place on an ever increasing rate throughout the West, as well as the rest of the nation and the world.  It is known that there is an epidemic of asthma related illness (I’m one of them, and I have NEVER smoked).  We must ask ourselves WHY?. Dust, you’ve got to be kidding!

All one has to do is start looking up and becoming aware of the white planes, and long white lines coming from the planes that spread out and cover our blue skies.  The sun is not being allowed to shine through and warm the earth; it is also interfering with our ability to produce Vitamin D3 which is a hormone that comes naturally from the sun!  Without it we MUST take supplements or we will increase our susceptibility to cancer http://www.mercola.com/article/vitamin-d-resources.htm.  In Sacramento and it’s surrounding areas, there has NOT been a blue sky in over a week.  We are completely covered in a white, milky haze.  Due diligence is in order.  Please research weather modification, chemtrails, and contrails to become educated on the differences. Don’t let newspapers like The Sacramento Bee or the New York Times tell you what the truth is; discover it for yourself.

Fallout far-reaching as dust kicks up in West

High winds blow dust over a car near San Bernardino last February. More dust appears to be getting whipped up in the West, affecting the economic and environmental life of cities and suburbs throughout the region. The dust’s main source is the Colorado Plateau, which stretches over four states.
