Supplement Regulation: Who's Behind It, and Why Should You Oppose It?

Health columnist Brian Vaszily just posted an excellent article on the major health site of Dr. Joseph Mercola: "Supplement Regulation: Who's Behind It, and Why Should You Oppose It?"

Vaszily explains in easy terms and with clear intention what the real agenda is behind the current drive to "regulate supplements" while often deadly pharmaceutical drugs go scott free. I added some comments - not to criticize but to confirm, from my own knowledge base, that Vaszily is speaking the gospel truth.

Read my comments to the article of Brian Vaszily.

Comments by Josef Hasslberger

Thank you for a good and clearly understandable article on the current situation regarding pharmaceutically dominated "medicine" and various alternatives that make it possible for us to live better and more healthy lives. It would seem preposterous (to some) to suggest that western medicine is not health - but profit - oriented. Yet I can confirm every word in your article.

I have personally been using supplements regularly for about three decades and have been able to stay out of health trouble with quite remarkable success. So I know that supplementation works, both for me and for others I know. No doubt it is preferable to eat biologically grown food and I try to do that as much as possible, but at times we need an extra boost of vital elements and that's where supplements are useful.

In the last six weeks, I have also run my personal blog site on this very issue of supplements, genetically modified foods, the pharmaceutical shenanigans and related issues. The site is called Health Supreme and can be found at http://www.newmediaexplorer/sepp

We are currently witnessing a desperate battle by the pharmaceutical interest groups, in close collaboration with their government and legislative connections, to whittle down the "threat" to health supposedly posed by supplements. Of course, as you correctly point out, the threat is not to our health but to the pocketbooks of the pharmaceutical disease industry.

Australia had over 1500 supplements removed from health food shelves recently, in a stealth attack by the Aussie authorities, which is documented on my site. New Zealand is fighting being "taken over" by the Australian Health Authorities in the name of harmonization, quite a funny term, unless harmony means bad health.

Canada, after "public consultations" and years of work of a special parliamentary committee, is clamping down on supplements. You can go to the site of my friend Chris who is Canadian, to read about this legislation and more.

The US Congress is examining a bill to limit supplement availability in that country. The FDA seems to be upping the ante with its proposal (about to appear) of new Good Manufacturing Practices. Some say they are barking up the wrong tree and should examine their approval processes of largely toxic substances for "medicine" and "food".

Europe has passed its directive on supplements, to be made into national law in all member countries by the end of this month of July 2003. They are ready to discuss herbs next, making them medicines to be registered. And they are discussing the medicines laws, proposing a definition of medicine that can easily include ANY healthy supplement. There is one group that is particularly active on this and is getting ready to challenge the supplements directive in court, in addition to lobbying lawmakers and government to mend their ways. Their site: Alliance for Natural Health

But not enough that these major areas are all implementing restrictions to the availability of alternatives to pharmaceutical drugs. The United Nations is also in on the act. Codex Alimentarius, which is an international standard-setting body for food and is located in the Food and Agriculture Organization here in Rome, has been discussing its own "giudelines for vitamin and mineral supplements" since the mid '90s. Such a Codex Standard, other than serving as "sample legislation" for the countries of the world, is also enforceable through the World Trade Organization, which uses trade sanctions to make countries conform.

Do we really need to be told what to avoid (and be reminded to take our pharmaceutical medicines) by the governing authorities of the world? I think not. It is time to take an interest and counter this trend wherever possible. Best to start "close to home" - with your own life, and by informing your friends. Then start organizing. If you feel you want to do more, or want to do more in a much more efficient way, become a Communication Agent and start your own campaign for change. Together, we are stronger than any government or international agency could even dream to be.

In conclusion, thank you Brian Vaszily for an excellent article, which I will link on my site for further distribution. And thank you Dr. Mercola for a great health site.

Readers' Comments

Here a comment from Inge Hanle in Canada, received by e-mail

Inge's Comment: The present push for health-product regulation, restricting accessibility to supplements and herbs -, about to become law in Canada - and globally - is a gigantic Trojan Horse.

They are designed to prevent citizens from taking charge of their own health and exercising self-sufficiency.

Is it not odd that the government is determined to over-regulate health-products, but refuses to regulate and /or remove unhealthy products like junk foods, and dangerous pharmaceutical drugs that literally kill hundreds of thousands of people every year.

Why? These regulations are designed to protect 'sickness-industry profits' by generating a closed system of control that perpetually generates and recycles sick people through the 'revolving doors' of the conventional hi-tech medical and pharmaceutical 'profit-generating-machine' - while successfully draining the tax-fed coffers of the 'health-care system'.

'Health care' is literally disappearing - much like the dodo bird, which sat trustingly while it was being shot into extinction!

The restriction of supplements is guaranteed to restrict the health of Canadian citizens, will increase illness, and will severely restrict the ability of citizens to exercise 'self-sufficiency' in all matters of health. These regulations constitute a health-limiting and illness-generating mechanism that is destined to be very profitable for the manipulators of the 'sickness industry. Your health is being treated as the legal jurisdiction and property of an industry! Increasingly it no longer 'belongs' to you - and decisions regarding it are no longer yours to make! Your government is selling 'your health' to an industry - and health is becoming a corporate commodity and financial resource. We are regarded as human resources - financial resources !

Over many decades, the citizenry has permitted the conventional medical system and governments to be secretly and cleverly hi-jacked and controlled by a profit-oriented criminal medical mafia, embedded in the movers-and-shakers within the pharmaceutical and hi-tech medical industries, which have a primary objective and focus of profit-protection through the takeover and/or destruction of all competition.

The health-food industry posed a major competition to pharmaceutical interests. People becoming healthy on their own is an intolerable scenario from the perspective of the 'sickness-industry'. The supplement business is worth BILLIONS, and in recent years has also reduced pharmaceutical profits by BILLIONS. The NEED to CONTROL and OWN the supplement business is the pharmaceutical industry's logical solution to this 'business threat' - hence 'the new global regulations' of all 'health products' - with upper (useless) limits, or removal, or prescription requirements.

Brainwashing the public to accept the unacceptable has given birth to another industry - that of fraudulent, falsified, on-demand, pseudo-scientific reports and information. Lies, Lies, and more Lies! The claim that these regulations would 'protect and enhance your health' is a just such a blatant lie - a gigantic lie - a deliberate lie! The claim that herbs that have been safely used for thousands of years have suddenly become "dangerous" is another such lie. The concept that "health can be measure merely as disease prevention" is equally fraudulent. Health is much BIGGER than the prevention of total breakdown š which is disease.

The 'preservation of health' is an incompatible concept on the agenda of a 'sickness industry' - hence their health protection claim is another falsehood. If you had a business based on 'problem solving', would you like to see the problems permanently solved? Would you like to see yourself 'put out of business'. The 'perpetuation of the problem" and the 'complete control of all remediation' quickly becomes part of the modus operandi - and can easily become the primary focus.

And sadly, so it is in the house of 'conventional medicine'. These forces have taken over and regulated the Western medicinal system to their ends since 1900, when the AMA was 'taken over' and 'corporatized' to serve vested corporate interests. Since that time, it has been the instrument through which corporate interests has been able to control and discipline the doctors from within, and infiltrate government agencies to regulate the citizenry from without.

The restriction of supplements and herbs is the final step in this "complete-control" scenario. When these regulations become law (if we don't stop them) your health will become the complete prisoner and slave of this corrupted corporatized system.

Beware! Wake up! This is not 'protection'. It is the Trojan Horse of 'medical enslavement'!
Please take action before it is too late! Wake up your fellow citizens, and contact your MPs with a flood of opposition to these regulations!

Inge Hanle,
Citizens Demanding Scientific and Political Integrity
