      Sneak attack!

      Unless we all act now, within two weeks, FDA starts turning all or
      supplements, herbs, juices, food, and oxy -supplements
      into "drugs" - removing all our remaining freedom of health choices.

      When it comes to health freedom, this is the FDA's end game. A new
      FDA "guidance" document, published on the FDA's website, reveals
      plans to reclassify virtually all vitamins, supplements, herbs and
      even vegetable juices as FDA-regulated drugs. Massage oils and
      massage rocks will be classified as "medical devices" and require FDA
      approval. The document is called Docket No. 2006D-0480. Draft
      Guidance for Industry on Complementary and Alternative Medicine
      Products and Their Regulation by the Food and Drug Administration.

      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.)

      Click here for the direct link to the FDA's comment posting page for
      this docket.

      This move by the FDA is designed to once and for all destroy the 1994
      DSHEA law that has made supplements "legal" while eliminating
      nutritional supplements and natural medicine from the United States ,
      ensuring monopoly profits and control by drug companies and the FDA.
      It is the latest action item by the FDA / Big Pharma conspiracy that
      will not stop until health freedom has been abolished, drug companies
      rule the nation, and every citizen is diagnosed with a fictitious
      disease and drugged up on monopoly-priced pharmaceuticals.

      FDA "experts" will decide what's a drug or medical device

      Under these proposed guidelines, FDA "experts" (the same corrupt
      officials who re-approved Vioxx after it killed over 50,000
      Americans) will decide whether herbs, supplements, vitamins or simple
      devices like massage stones are to be regulated as drugs and medical
      devices. If the FDA experts, in their infinite wisdom, decide that
      these things are to be reclassified, they will essentially be
      outlawed, stripped from the shelves, and regulated out of existence.
      Anyone who dares to manufacture, promote or sell such products may be
      branded a criminal and rounded up by armed FDA agents who have a well
      established history of suppressing natural medicine.

      I've documented much of the criminal history of the FDA in my recent
      book, Natural Health Solutions and the Conspiracy to Keep You From
      Knowing About Them, which suddenly seems even more relevant today
      than when I wrote it. In that book, I documented the FDA ordered book
      burnings, the raids on vitamin shops, the kidnapping of natural
      health practitioners, the threats, intimidation and oppression
      tactics that have been used to suppress natural medicine for nearly a
      hundred years now. And now, with this CAM Products Regulation effort,
      the FDA is about to deal a final, fatal blow to the alternative
      medicine industry, outlawing nutritional supplements, functional
      foods, homeopathy and natural therapies all at once.

      This is not a drill. It really is time to be alarmed. Nothing else
      I've written about this year is as important as this sinister plot to
      destroy natural medicine and force the American population to resort
      to dangerous prescription medications sold at monopoly prices under a
      system of medical tyranny.

      Your access to vitamins, supplements, herbs, and even energy medicine
      modalities is now directly threatened, and you have until April 30 to
      make your voice heard.

      Action items

      First, read the document yourself. Click here for the PDF version.

      Take special care to notice the following text, taken directly from
      the FDA's own document: (italicized text is from the FDA, with my own
      translation following)

      "...a product used in a CAM therapy or practice may be subject to
      regulation as a biological product, cosmetic, drug, device, or food
      (including food additives and dietary supplements) under the act or
      the PHS Act. Second, neither the act nor the PHS Act exempts CAM
      products from regulation."

      Translation: Anything used in any system of medicine may now be
      regulated as a drug or medical device by the FDA. This includes a
      biofeedback machine, acupuncture needles, a cup of herbal tea,
      massage oil, a glass of vegetable juice or even a bottle of water.

      "...if a person decides to produce and sell raw vegetable juice for
      use in juice therapy to promote optimal health... [and] if the juice
      therapy is intended for use as part of a disease treatment regimen
      instead of for the general wellness, the vegetable juice would also
      be subject to regulation as a drug under the Act."

      Translation: Raw vegetable juice will be regulated as a drug and must
      be FDA approved as a drug if it has any health effect whatsoever.
      Handing a cup of raw vegetable juice to someone and telling them it's
      good for the detoxification of their liver will get you arrested for
      practicing medicine without a license and promoting an "unapproved
      drug."

      ..."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, super-foods and functional foods
      may be reclassified as drugs by the FDA, then regulated off the
      market.

      If... the manipulative and body-based practices involve the use of
      equipment (such as massage devices) or the application of a product
      (such as a lotion, cream, or oil) to the skin or other parts of the
      body, those products may be subject to regulation under the Act."

      Translation: Massage oils and creams will be regulated as "drugs" and
      acupuncture needles as "medical devices." Taking this absurdity one
      step further, massage therapists who use their fingers to touch
      patients may have their fingers regulated as "medical devices" and be
      accused of practicing medicine for merely touching patients.

      Things that will be regulated out of existence

      It is very clear that the FDA is intending to regulate and ultimately
      destroy the entire CAM industry (Complementary and Alternative
      Medicine). Based on the explanations in the FDA's own document, the
      following things are likely to occur:



      All vitamins, nutritional supplements and functional foods will be
      stripped of their structure & function claims, reducing them to empty
      labels where virtually nothing at all is allowed to be stated.
      Vegetable juice will be regulated as a drug. Raw juice retreats will
      be raided or shut down.
      Growing and selling common garden herbs will get you arrested as a
      drug dealer.
      Massage oils and handheld massagers will be regulated as "medical
      devices."
      Yoga props, pilates machines and weight machines will be regulated
      as "medical devices" and require FDA approval before being sold or
      used.
      Raw sprouts and other anti-cancer foods will be regulated as drugs.
      Bottled water that "treats" dehydration will be regulated as a drug.
      Massage therapists who use hot rocks as part of their therapy will
      have the ROCKS regulated as medical devices! (It's true. The FDA will
      actually look at a pile of rocks and declare, "Those are medical
      devices!")
      Functional foods, supplements, vitamins and homeopathic remedies will
      disappear from store shelves, pending FDA "review." (The only things
      remaining will be processed junk foods and pharmaceuticals, which is
      exactly what Big Business wants.)
      Therapeutic tea products, such as green tea, will be outlawed and
      confiscated.
      Vitamin store owners will be arrested and prosecuted for "practicing
      medicine without a license."
      Citizens owning personal inventories of "unapproved drugs" (vitamins
      and herbs) may have their homes raided at gunpoint and their
      inventories confiscated by armed law enforcement agents.
      The importation of herbs and functional foods from all countries may
      be banned.
      Keep in mind that the FDA is the same agency that:

      Wants to label irradiated foods as "pasteurized. "
      Voted to put the deadly drug Vioxx back on the market after tens of
      thousands of deaths, even after its own manufacurer pulled it from
      pharmacies.
      Raided a church at gunpoint, confiscating biofeedback machines and
      charging that they were "practicing medicine" by counseling church
      members on issues like depression.
      Openly allows corrupt, "on the take" experts to vote on new drug
      approvals, even when those experts are taking money from the same
      companies impacted by their votes.
      Refuses to legalize stevia, the safe, natural herbal sweetener that's
      used virtually everywhere else in the world. The agenda? Protect the
      profits of aspartame and other chemical sweeteners.
      Openly allows the mass poisoning of the public with cancer-causing
      food additives such as sodium nitrite.
      Refuses to enforce its own laws regarding unsafe chemical toxins in
      personal care products, allowing perfume and lotion companies to
      continue poisoning the public with cancer-causing chemicals that
      don't even have to be listed on the label, nor proven safe.
      Ordered the destruction of recipe books that mentioned stevia. (A
      campaign to keep the public ignorant of the herb.)
      Does everything in its power to protect drug company profits,
      including discrediting herbs, supplements and alternative medicine.
      Does anyone honestly believe that this criminal organization has any
      capacity whatsoever to act in the public interest? Even many Senators
      are fed up with the FDA's unprecedented level of corruption and
      criminal behavior.

      Action items, continued...

      Read Jon Barron's comments on this rule at the JonBarron.org website

      Next, lodge your complaint against the FDA by commenting on this
      docket through the FDA's docket comment form.

      And finally, write your Senator or Congressperson about this issue
      and let them know, in blatant language, that you will not stand by
      and allow the criminals running medicine today to take away your
      access to vitamins, supplements, herbs and homeopathic medicine.
      Write the letter in your own words, even if it's just two sentences.
      Individual letters have a hundred times the impact of form letters.

      Medical wasteland USA
      Everything is at stake here. If the FDA gets its way, the United
      States will become a medical wasteland, dominated by corporate drug
      company interests, where the naturopaths are imprisoned and their
      products destroyed. Supplements and herbs will become contraband, and
      gardeners who grow their own medicinal herbs may be raided and
      arrested by DEA agents wielding assault rifles. Simply selling dried
      broccoli sprouts as being "good anti-cancer foods" may land you in
      prison, and running a vitamin shop could result in you being arrested
      for "practicing medicine."

      Imagine a nation where Whole Foods stores are stripped of all herbs
      and supplements, where vitamin shops are emptied and abandoned, where
      books that promote herbs are bulldozed into large piles and burned,
      where natural healers are rounded up and "disappeared" into
      incarceration centers. This is the future that will become reality if
      the FDA has its way. The plan has been explained to us in plain
      language. Any agency that openly states "vegetable juice will be
      regulated as a drug" has quite simply lost its marbles. We are now
      clearly being regulated by clinically insane bureaucrats.

      With this desperate proposal by the FDA -- clearly designed as a last-
      ditch effort to save the failing conventional medical industry from a
      massive public shift towards natural medicine -- the war against
      health freedom has reached our shores, and the FDA is plotting a 9/11-
      style attack to bring down the towers of health freedom in one swift
      motion.

      This is the same agency that currently represents the greatest threat
      to the health and safety of the American people, far outweighing the
      threat of real terrorism. This agency, we have seen, will do ANYTHING
      to protect the profits and power of drug companies. It will lie,
      steal, accept bribes, hide scientific evidence, distort statistics,
      commit scientific fraud, break federal laws, threaten its own drug
      safety scientists, conspire with drug company executives, intimidate
      American citizens and use terror-style tactics to achieve its goals
      of complete domination over foods, drugs and health.

      Why do Americans tolerate terrorism in their own government?

      It is time we put a stop to this home-grown tyranny. We have fought
      too hard for freedom in the United States to allow us all to be
      steamrolled by a criminal front group covertly working for Big
      Pharma. The FDA has declared war on natural medicine and the American
      people, and we will lose our family members, children, brothers and
      sisters as casualties of this war if we don't stand up now and demand
      radical changes. It's time to stop this terrorist organization from
      destroying the lives of yet more U.S. citizens.

      Make your voice heard now, or forever surrender your access to
      supplements, herbs, superfoods and functional foods. By the time the
      FDA is done with this country, we'll all be eating medication for
      breakfast, lunch and dinner.

      Action reminders:

      1. Lodge a complaint with the FDA by clicking here. MAKE SURE you
      include the docket number 2006D-0480. But don't trust this to be
      enough. The FDA will probably simply delete half the complaints it
      receives, so don't trust your complaint to actually count. It's
      important to continue...

      2. Send a strongly-worded letter to your representatives in
      Washington . Be sure to cite Docket No. 2006D-0480. Draft Guidance
      for Industry on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Products and
      Their Regulation by the Food and Drug Administration. Tell them you
      support open access to vitamins, herbs, and supplements, and you do
      not want CAM to be regulated by the FDA.

      3. Send this story to everyone you know. Spread the word. Raise the
      alarm. With enough public support, the FDA will be forced to back off
      this insane proposal.

      And stay tuned to NewsTarget for more news, analysis and action
      alerts on health freedom. Even though we're under constant attack by
      criminal organizations trying to disrupt our servers and take us off
      line, we're still here, beating the drum for health freedom, and
      hoping that we have enough sane-minded Americans remaining to save
      this country from its government.

      Actual FDA quote is gobbledygook

      Here's an actual FDA statement from the CAM Guidance report:

      For example, naturopathic cranberry tablets might be labeled for use
      to maintain the health of the urinary tract. In this example, the
      cranberry tablets generally would be regulated as "dietary
      supplements" ...if they were labeled for use to "maintain the health
      of the urinary tract" rather than "prevent urinary tract infections."
      The cranberry tablets would be regulated as "drugs" ...if they were
      labeled for use to "treat urinary tract infections" even if they were
      labeled as dietary supplements.
