It seems to me that not a day goes by without a new attack on your right to choose healthy foods and supplements. I fear that public apathy is empowering federal government agencies to destroy our individual liberties.

Many of you are aware of the FDA’s corrupt ban of  last year. This form of vitamin B6 was being sold as a low-cost supplement to protect against age-accelerating reactions in the body. A pharmaceutical company convinced the FDA to outlaw pyridoxamine supplements and turn this safe form of B6 into a prescription drug … one that has not yet been approved!

Life Extension® was able to get around the lethal effects of the FDA’s decree by substituting a form of vitamin B6 with similar properties. Now another pharmaceutical company has petitioned the FDA asking thatpyridoxal 5’-phosphate be banned so that it too can be converted into a high-priced prescription drug.

FDA Says Walnuts Are Illegal Drugs

On February 22, 2010, the FDA sent a warning letter to a distributor of packaged walnuts called Diamond Foods, Inc.

The  said that walnuts sold by Diamond Foods cannot be legally marketed because the walnuts “are not generally recognized as safe and effective” for the medical conditions referenced on Diamond Foods’ website.

According to the FDA, these walnuts are now classified as “drugs” and the “unauthorized health claims” cause them to become “”misbranded,” thus subjecting them to government “seizure or injunction.”

The FDA sent similar letters to a wide range of food distributors including those who sell green tea pomegranate juice.

David versus Goliath

For the first time in history, prescription drug sales in the U.S. topped $300 billion in 2009. That’s more than  ten times the amount spent on dietary supplements.

Pharmaceutical companies are showering Congress and regulatory government agencies (like the FDA) with dollars in order to further their monopolistic stranglehold over today’s broken medical system. The recent enactment of the Health Care Reform Act will further enrich pharmaceutical interests by making sure tax dollars are available to subsidize everyone’s over-priced drug costs.

The citizenry is destined to become economic serfs of the pharmaceutical industry unless they stand up against this latest reign of oppression.

If only we could resurrect those who founded this country, it would be fascinating to hear their reactions to the egregious degree our Constitution has been subverted.

The Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4th, 1776. This momentous document was authored by Thomas Jefferson.

Considering the 4th of July ranks amongst the top five holidays celebrated in the United States each year, it is startling how much liberty we have allowed our government to rob us of.

One can view the many quotes of Thomas Jefferson by logging on to any number of websites dedicated to him. What’s amazing is how timely his words remain after more than 200 years have passed.

Here are a few examples of Thomas Jefferson’s inspirational quotes that reveal what he might say about the federal government controlling what we are allowed to learn about foods and what nutrients we are allowed to ingest:

“Was the government to prescribe to us our medicine and diet, our bodies would be in such keeping as our souls are now.”

“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”

“Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.”

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”

“History, in general, only informs us of what bad government is.”

“I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion.”

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

“I own that I am not a friend to a very energetic government. It is always oppressive.”

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”

“I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it.”

“It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.”

“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.”

“Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the form of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question.”

“Most bad government has grown out of too much government. “

Please exercise your health freedom and register your protests against these heinous attempts from pharmaceutical companies to deprive Americans of healthy foods and supplements by the government.
