FDA Targets Supplement Manufacturers, Falsely Accuses Them of Selling Drugs…

In the eyes of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), there is no difference between a legitimate, scientifically-backed health claim, and a phony, made-up claim, as it concerns food and dietary supplements. Only FDA-approved drugs, you see, provide real health benefits, according to the agency. And in its continued assault against health freedom, the FDA has sent warning letters to five different companies that produce natural treatments and cures for sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs) because those companies dared to make unauthorized health claims, many of which are backed by peer-reviewed, journal-published scientific studies.

What is worse, though, is the fact that the FDA has decreed that any food or dietary supplement that provides any sort of health benefit is automatically a “drug.” Ordinary foods like almonds, cherries, or walnuts literally become recategorized as drugs when accompanied by claims that they cure, heal, or prevent disease– and this is currently the law of the land in the US.

Which is Healthier… Pasteurized or Unpasteurized Milk???

Congressman Ron Paul, the most outspoken member of Congress is getting involved with the battle to save raw milk. He is outraged that the government is spending tax dollars to prosecute farmers for selling unpasteurized milk. Senator Paul points out that many people have done their own research and decided that the raw milk is a healthier choice.

Currently, raw milk is legal in a number of states, and is a highly sought-after “black market” item in other states. Most raw milk is in the form of low-volume “farm to consumer” sales, with the farmer consuming their own product, assuring its safety. Raw milk consumers are well-informed as to any possible dangers, and willingly take those risks for the perceived health benefits.

Recently, the US FDA conducted a “sting” operation against a small Amish dairy in Pennsylvania. Raw milk is legal there, but some of the dairy’s customers were taking the milk home to Maryland or DC, therefore inciting the ire of the FDA. They conducted a year-long investigation, involving agents infiltrating the farmer’s operation, and recently “raided” the farm, seizing, WITHOUT WARRANT, milk, equipment, computers and disks, citing the recently-passed Food Safety Modernization Act, which gives them broad powers of warrantless search and seizure – a clear violation of the Fourth Amendment.

Do You Know What Interesterified Oils Are??? YOU SHOULD!!!

We all  need to be aware that Food companies are now calling “Trans Fats” Interesterified Fats to fool educated consumers. It has been very popular for consumers to avoid or eliminate Trans fats from our diets over the past several years which has hurt the food manufactures where it really hurts the most. However they are getting around the trans fat labeling by mixing small amounts of fully hydrogenated oil with liquid polyunsaturate oils and calling it “Interesterified Oil.” They claim that fully hydrogenated oil is healthier. Since there is less trans fat, they can sell this product to food manufacturers for use in commercial dressings, baked goods, candies and anything else that used to have partially hydrogenated oil in the ingredient list.

We should also be aware that a food with under 0.5g of trans fat is allowed to be labeled as “Trans-Fat-Free” in the US. So, when reading food labels…”Trans-Fat-Free” doesn’t mean it has no trans fats within it! Now we need to spread the word that once again the Big Food Industry and it’s partner the FDA has changed the rules in the middle of the game and allowed another toxic ingredient into our food known as INTERESTERIFIED OILS or FATS…

Groups Sue FDA Over Use of Certain Antibiotics in Animal Feed

Last week, a coalition including consumer groups such as Center for Science in the Public Interest, Natural Resources Defense Council and several more filed a law suit against the FDA for failing to take action regarding the overuse of human antibiotics in animal feed. The groups assert that knowledge of the rise of antibiotic resistant bacteria in people consuming such animal products existed as early as 1977. The FDA failed to act on those conclusions and failed to protect public safety. The question remains…Who is the FDA protecting??? It certainly doesn’t look  like it is the general public which was the intended purpose!

The FDA gives mixed messages to farmers when it sometimes emphasizes that farmers use fewer antibiotics to keep drug resistance minimal yet also adhering to longstanding regulations about using said drugs for animal disease control. With a lawsuit pending, the FDA might be more accountable and be compelled to take a step in either direction.

Do You Make This Common Mistake When Your Child is Sick?

Fevers are actually the body’s way of fighting bacterial infections simply by turning up the temperature in order to “burn out the infection.” So many parents think that they are doing the right thing by rushing for medication to try to “break the fever” when it strikes, but in actual fact, this is doing a lot more harm than good. Studies have found that aspirin and other fever-reducing medications actually suppress the production of antibodies, thus resulting in the infection lasting for up to 50% longer than it should. So, be sure to read this article to understand why our bodies develop a fever and why it is hampering our recovery to take fever reducing meds.
