The FDA is Taking Action to Ban Natural Supplements

Greatest Threat Since FDA Tried to Turn
Nutrients into Prescription Drugs!

Listen to William Faloon discuss the FDA’s Latest Attempt to Ban your Dietary Supplements as recorded during the recent Life Extension Scientific Advisory Board meeting

The FDA has just issued a proposed mandate that will enable the government to ban the most effective dietary supplements you are now taking.
If this proposal is enacted, many fish oil formulas and natural plant extracts will be removed from the market until so-called safety testing is done. The FDA wants each nutrient company to force-feed laboratory animals the human equivalent of up to 240,000 milligrams a day of certain fish oils. This outlandish dose will injure the test animals and give the FDA an excuse to outlaw the supplement.

How can the FDA do this? They are seeking to reclassify the natural supplements you now take as “food additives.” This gives the FDA power to mandate outrageous safety thresholds that have no relationship to the scientifically validated doses of nutrients you take every day.

Why are they doing this? Because these natural products work too well. Take curcumin as an example. It has been shown to inhibit a deadly transcription factor in cells called nuclear factor-kappa beta (NF-kB) that is responsible for immune system regulation. Over-expression of NF-kB is linked with tumor cells that resist normal cell growth and maturation, as well as inflammation.

Pharmaceutical companies want to own the exclusive rights to these kinds of plant extracts that are freely sold on the market today. They don’t want consumers to be able to obtain these biological benefits in low-cost supplements. Instead, they want to patent synthetic versions as high-priced prescription drugs!
What is being done to Stop This Travesty?

To give you an idea about how dangerous these draconian proposals are, Life Extension helped organize a conference call last week. Dozens of health freedom organizations participated and agreed to coordinate a massive consumer revolt.

The official start date of this uprising is Thursday, September 8, 2011, but you can take preliminary action today to thwart the FDA’s latest attempt to steal your supplements and make them the exclusive domain of Big Pharma.

We ask that you forward this e-mail to everyone you know so they can understand the precarious state their health will be in when the FDA bans their most effective dietary supplements.
Then, use our convenient website to e-mail letters to the White House, your Representative and two Senators by clicking on the links below:

Life Extension will keep you posted on these frightening developments, but please mark Thursday, September 8, 2011, on your calendar as the day when millions of health freedom activists will rise up in unity against FDA tyranny.
For longer life,

William Faloon

Historical Perspective
For those who don’t recall, the federal government came very close to transforming high-potency supplements into prescription drugs in the 1970s.
The medical establishment lobbied so hard that it was a foregone conclusion that Congress would change the law and force Americans to obtain prescriptions for many of their supplements.
No one expected the consumer backlash that overwhelmed Congress into submission.
Vitamin users inundated Congress with so many protests that the Proxmire Vitamin Bill was enacted in 1976. This bill prohibited the FDA from turning dietary supplements into “drugs” as the American Medical Association was urging.
Annual vitamin sales were less than $2 billion in the 1970s, yet Congress received more mail from angry vitamin supplement users than any other issue except the Vietnam War.
Today, Americans use over $26 billion of dietary supplements each year, so you can imagine how many angry protests Congress will hear when the public learns the FDA is trying to ban every supplement introduced after October 15, 1994.
The FDA’s proposed guidelines represent the greatest threat to health freedom since the medical establishment tried to seize control over your right to ingest food supplements. Please take action today by contacting The White House and Congress today by clicking the buttons below.

  1. According to the groundbreaking 2003 medical report Death by Medicine, by Drs. Gary Null, Carolyn Dean, Martin Feldman, Debora Rasio and Dorothy Smith, 783,936 people in the United States die every year from conventional medicine mistakes. That’s the equivalent of six jumbo jet crashes a day for an entire year. But where is the media attention for this tragedy? Where is the government support for stopping these medical mistakes before they happen?

    No, they are going to spend our money going after supplements that actually assist people with their health maladies not kill them off. Nice work FDA! Whose pocket are you in (as if we didn’t know).

    oh, what’s the matter? The FDA and BIG Pharma losing $$$ it’s all BS if you ask me. they can’t do that. I take a whole slew of supplements. they want people to take the dangerous drugs instead of the natural ones so they can line their pockets with more money. is there a petition of somewhere we can sign to stop this madness? What is this a police state? and what they deem safe is a joke. just look at all the drugs they approved of and either taken off the market and/or are causing birth defects and horrible side effects including suicides. like I trust the FDA. I for one am outraged!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • FDA and FTC thinks they are above the law, I, for one, do not like any of these agencies, because all they want is to make people sick and produce drugs so they can stay in business. They violate our rights to my and our health, in which we need to do something about. I do not want to support them and I hope they will go out of business for good!”"

  3. please consider captioning your videos to be inclusive of the 36M deaf and hearing impaired americans that just might be interested in this! thank you.

  4. Last winter I was diagnosed with the most common, non-aggressive form of breast cancer. After my PET/PEM scans I developed what looked like melanoma growths (3 that I could find). I have scheduled surgery 3 times and cancelled 3 times. The last time I was threatened by the surgeon to go to my superior IF I did not go along with standard treatment. I cancelled anyway.

    I have used a variety of supplements for these cancers including Protocel, Paw Paw, Graviola and Curcumin. I HAVE USED MY OWN MONEY TO SHRINK THESE CANCERS… NOT INSURANCE MONEY. THE GOVERNMENT OUGHT TO BE THANKFUL… NOT CONSIDERING LIMITING MY RIGHTS FOR THE SAKE OF BIG BUSINESS!!!

    Just this week I got word that the spots I treated with Protocel (that looked like melanoma) are just scars now. Whatever cost to me and discomfort I went through (via applying this liquid topically) was a small price compared to surgery, radiation and chemo.

    I sent letters to my elected officials AND the President. Natural supplements were created by GOD to benefit the health of HIS created beings. Those supplements were not created for the FDA to profit from and manipulate the U.S. citizens into compliance with its protocols.

  5. I know that there is alot of benifical medince out there, and lot of people who dont take meds that help them can take these, but alot of things that are out in the market have things in the natural supplements. there are alot of products out there that are very safe for you to have.
    I am so disappointed that there is no lecture on the meds that are out in the market. compared to those that are very safe to take, do some research.

    Please Get the word out. Why is this so quiet? Thousands of companies are being block or banned and there is no chatter. Google Shopping is literally acting like China and blocking people from seeing legal and beneficial products.
