Citizens for Health is a controlled opposition group working on behalf of the pharma dominated vitamin trade associations. Today I was not surprised to see them send a message out to their list (which I monitor) which urges the vitamin consuming public to slash their own throats by pushing for passage of S.3546: "Dietary Supplement and Nonprescription Drug Consumer Act"
This terrible bill is well exposed by Gerald Kessler's Nutritional Health Alliance (see http://www.nha2004.com/index_res.asp?w=1024&h=768, and IAHF, the National Health Federation and a growing number of small innovative dietary supplement companies including the Life Extension Foundation and Wellness Resources oppose this bill because it does not have language that would allow causality to be determined when an adverse reaction is reported to the FDA stemming from a toll free number which the bill would require be put on vitamin bottles if it were passed into law.
In other words, if someone were taking a half dozen toxic Rx drugs, and along with them they were taking a safe dietary supplement, and they had an adverse reaction to the DRUGS, the dietary supplement could EASILY be wrongly BLAMED, which could EASILY lead to "Trial By TV" and insurance companies charging vastly increased PREMIUMS for supplement companies wanting to market the product which has suddenly been very UNFAIRLY thrust into the spotlight via a media SMEAR CAMPAIGN.
The LARGE vitamin companies which dominate the vitamin trade associations WANT this bad legislation because it would help them drive smaller competitors under.
If you belong to Citizens for Health, I urge you to immediately QUIT this less than worthless shill group and put your money behind IAHF instead. We're not interested in being "politically correct". We do NOT take our cues from the pharma dominated vitamin trade associations, we call attention to the LIES they're telling people about CODEX and related matters including this, and we do this even though they DEMONIZE IAHF and that makes it much HARDER for us to get industry support.
We're in the corner of CONSUMERS because I AM a consumer. Dietary supplements saved my life after mainstream medicine almost killed me and thats why I FORMED IAHF back in '96 when I was the first to call the Codex vitamin issue to global attention via an article in Life Extension Magazine. We're in the corner of the small, innovative supplement companies that never skimp on ingredients and offer the BEST products the supplement industry has to offer because THOSE are the companies most threatened by Codex and by bad legislation such as this.
HOW TO HELP KILL THIS BILL:
Call Your Senators via the Capital Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and tell them you oppose S.3546 "Dietary Supplement and Nonprescription Drug Consumer Act," because it is a totally UNECESSARY bill. Food in common form is FAR more dangerous than dietary supplements, yet we don't see toll free numbers on FOOD products via which people can call the FDA. What this is is a WITCH HUNT against safe dietary supplements and its only supported by the vitamin trade associations because they're dominated from the top down by pharmaceutical interests and by the biggest companies which are trying to drive smaller competitors out of business. When you reach Senator Hatch and Harkins office, tell them you are DISGUSTED that they would assist a pharma shill like DURBIN by cosponsoring this awful legislation.
IAHF NEEDS YOUR HELP TO GET TO DC AT END OF JULY TO LOBBY AGAINST FDA's TRILATERAL COOPERATION CHARTER & AGAINST S.3546
With YOUR HELP I'm going to get to Washington DC before August recess to lobby alongside the National Health Federation as we undertake an action intended to dovetail with the FOIA request I filed re FDA's Trilateral Cooperation Charter.
What we'll be doing in DC is we'll be making the rounds of the Oversight & Investigations Subcommittee of the House Commerce Committee to urge a joint action by several members of the subcommittee to send letters on their letterhead to the FDA Commissioner to DEMAND ANSWERS to our questions about the FDA's Trilateral Cooperation Charter (which is clearly a subset of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America which Jerome Corsi has filed a FOIA request on. (See our petition at http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/373269232 and forward this widely, I'd like to have over 4,000 signatures by the end of the weekend)
IAHF seeks a dialogue with Corsi, but World Net Daily has not yet put me in touch with him. I'll continue my efforts there.
HOW YOU CAN HELP IAHF DO THIS IMPORTANT WORK IN WASHINGTON DC:
To help send John Hammell back to the DC to begin the push for Oversight on the FDA's Trilateral Cooperation Charter, and also on the illegal Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, please send a donation of $25. and we'll send you a copy of Fight for Your Health- Exposing the FDA's Betrayal of America
Donate $50. to IAHF to get a copy of this book plus Kevin Miller's Anti Codex DVD documentary "We Become Silent".
Donate $100. or more to get all of the above PLUS an hour long audio tape of John Hammell at the PANLA conference discussing the CODEX issue and how to fight back.

Please forward this widely, not enough Americans and Canadians realize whats happening right under our noses, we MUST get the 100th monkey syndrome kicking in!
Folks- I know you're fed up with everything thats going on right now, but hope is NOT LOST, and its very important that we ALL PULL TOGETHER in defense of our precious liberties! I was an integral part of the campaign in '94 to pass the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act in the direct face of an FDA Rulemaking Effort that threatened to dessimate the American dietary supplement industry and our access to dietary supplements.
Many of you were involved with that battle too! Today the FDA is attempting to get AROUND the will of the AMERICAN PEOPLE, by engaging in conferencing with their counterparts in Canada and Mexico (where dietary supplements are regulated as DRUGS). They're illegally attempting to create ONE SET of HARM-onized dietary supplement regulations for the people of all 3 nations as they seek to force us all together into a planned North American Union patterned after the EU Dictatorship, but just as they failed in the early 90s to slam dunk health freedom in the USA, they're about to FAIL AGAIN!!
To INSURE that they fail again, and to INSURE that we succeed in raining on the New World Order's PARADE, I need each and every one of you to assist me in doing that which some think "can't" be done: awakening the SLEEPING GIANT, the AMERICAN people (CANADIAN and MEXICAN too, for that matter!
