    A MUST READ FOR ANYONE WHO TAKES SUPPLEMENTS!


    ***This e-mail was sent to me by Paul Becker a fellow iron brother***
    please read this and more importantly, act on it or don't bitch when something happens. this is your time to do something other than complain about the actions of the government. don't talk about it, be about it.


    The Time For Action Is NOW

    Don't Let Your Supplements Become Illegal

    As you may know the US government is trying to pass a law, HR2749, which is about imposing totalitarian control on the food supply (such as mandating GMO-food) and restricting anything natural or healthy, such as access to supplements or even any natural food.
    Our health and very lives and the lives of our children depend on this being stopped. This is not an exaggeration. Our food supply will be placed in the hands of large factory farms and conglomerates like Monsanto who's only objective is profit.

    This is nothing short of a full out assault on independent and family owned agricultural producers to end competition to corporate producers. Within the verbiage is language that would once and for all codify Codex Alimentarius into U.S. law. This will restrict access to all supplements currently available over-the-counter. In Europe, CODEX has restricted the availability of such OTC products as Glucosamine and Selenium and now people are required to obtain a prescription to obtain these supplements. In fact, Vitamin C will no longer be available in anything larger than a 60 Mg tablet under CODEX!

    Every American needs to know about this, and how they can help create real change. Email your friends, family, coworkers...
    everyone. Tell them their 's and the health and lives of their children are at stake.

    I have established a simple and effective way to let your opinion be known. Emails and snail mail don't work because emails can be deleted and snail mail is shredded. BUT a fax must be read, cataloged, filed and saved FOR YEARS! I have set up a way for you to fax your State Representative in sixty seconds or less.
    Everything you need is on one page. You can locate your Representative and his or her fax number. I have had political activist Marti Oakley write a form letter so you can simply copy it and add your personal information. And You Can Fax The Message Right For F r e e!

    Please take one minute out of your day and go to The Time For Action Is NOW and send a fax to your State Representative telling them that you do not want
    HR2749 to be voted in as Law. And copy and paste this email and pass it to everyone you know. We must do this now before our God given rights to healthy natural food and supplements are sold to the large corporate monsters who put their profit far above our health and longevity.

    Sorry to disappoint but his bill has already been passed as of early August, if I remember correctly. It was what this whole thread was about here:

    I'll die if this passes. I pass out from glutamic acid. If this passes I'm going to buy a rifle and visit some people, BECAUSE I MIGHT AS WELL GET SHOT AND DIE KILLING SOME OF *******S THEN DIE BY BEING FORCED TO ET POISON. The thing is the american public is so stupid they could easily pass these laws. I wish Arnold was president then maybe I'd have some faith with this not passing.

    http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill...bill=h111-2749
    This is a synopsis I wrote previously, with some of the more troubling elements:

    For those that are less legally inclined, I have written a small breakdown of the more pertinent aspects of this law:

    This bill is titled, “H.R. 2749: Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009”, and is a sweeping addendum to the FD&C; most pertinently, sections regarding the manufacturing, packaging, and [mis]labeling of food and food products. For the most part, this bill is protocol alterations – changes to the registration of your GMP facility, performance standards, yearly registrations – but what makes me nervous is certain ambiguous portions such as this:

    * (b) Contents- The regulations under subsection (a)--
    * ‘(1) may set forth such procedures, processes, and practices as the Secretary determines to be reasonably necessary--
    * ‘(A) to prevent the introduction of known or reasonably foreseeable biological, chemical, and physical hazards, including hazards that occur naturally, may be unintentionally introduced, or may be intentionally introduced, including by acts of terrorism, into raw agricultural commodities that are from a plant or a fungus; and
    * ‘(B) to provide reasonable assurances that such commodity is not adulterated under section 402;
    * ‘(2) may include, with respect to growing, harvesting, packing, sorting, transporting, and storage operations, minimum standards for safety as the Secretary determines to be reasonably necessary;
    * ‘(3) may include standards addressing manure use, water quality, employee hygiene, sanitation and animal control, and temperature controls, as the Secretary determines to be reasonably necessary;
    * ‘(4) may include standards for such other elements as the Secretary determines necessary to carry out subsection (a);
    * ‘(5) shall provide a reasonable period of time for compliance, taking into account the needs of small businesses for additional time to comply; and
    * ‘(6) may provide for coordination of education and enforcement activities.”


    The language use here is troubling: “reasonably necessary”, for example, is a broad parameter rife with possibility for political meddling. What the Secretary deems reasonably necessary depends necessarily on the clamoring of both special interest groups and the public – obviously, given the current climate, “reasonably necessary” may be the elimination of food supplements as a whole. Further, the onus is removed from any sort of congressional or judicial oversight, and the Secretary is given full authority to determine what constitutes "reasonably necessary" for the safety of the public on an ad hoc basis. Another troubling bit:

    * (a) In General- Section 704 (21 U.S.C. 374) is amended by adding at the end the following:
    * ‘(h)(1) Each facility registered under section 415 shall be inspected--
    * ‘(A)(i) by one or more officers duly designated under section 702 or other statutory authority by the Secretary;
    ‘(ii) for domestic facilities, by a Federal, State, or local official recognized by the Secretary under paragraph (2); or
    ‘(iii) for foreign facilities, by an agency or a representative of a country that is recognized by the Secretary under paragraph (2); and
    * ‘(B) at a frequency determined pursuant to a risk-based schedule.
    ‘(2) For purposes of paragraph (1)(A), the Secretary--
    ‘(A) may recognize Federal, State, and local officials and agencies and representatives of foreign countries as meeting standards established by the Secretary for conducting inspections under this Act; and
    ‘(B) may limit such recognition to inspections of specific commodities or food types.


    Again, the ad hoc basis in which the Secretary will purportedly grant or disallow official inspections is alarming. It continues with (4) and (5) of Sec. 105, by stating that there is to be “risk-based” inspections set at steady intervals, depending on the classification of the facility. Seems logical, right? However, (5)(B) and (5)(C) go on to state the Secretary may alter how your facility is classified on, again, an ad hoc basis, pursuant to public safety concerns, and; further, that he may “inspect the facility with more frequency than the guidelines set in (4)”, Wait, it gets better. Sec. 107(b)(A)(B)(C)(D) go on to state that, “[...any food manufacturer...] must maintain the full pedigree of the origin and previous distribution of the food” - put otherwise: no ingredient that does not have a full pedigree down to its original cultivation may be used in any product.

    Sec. 109(p)(1)(i-iii) gets even better!

    * (1) IN GENERAL-
    * ‘(A) REQUIREMENT- The Secretary shall require, as an additional condition of granting admission to an article of food being imported or offered for import into the United States, that a qualified certifying entity provide a certification that the article complies with specified requirements of this Act if--...
    * ‘(B) CONTENTS OF CERTIFICATION- Such certification shall include such information regarding compliance as the Secretary may specify, and may be provided in the form of shipment-specific certificates, a listing of certified facilities or other entities, or in such other form as the Secretary may specify.


    Again, the Secretary is being given the power to decide, willy-nilly, what constitutes accreditation when dealing with foreign manufacture. The Secretary’s office decides that your manufacturer’s accreditations and proof pursuant thereto are unsubstantial? Too bad, your import will be denied. Here is the piece de resistance:

    Sec. 331(c) of the FD&C states the following on detention of “prohibited substances”: “if the officer or qualified employee has credible evidence or information...” and then goes on to state that he/she may order an immediate writ of cease production and recall on the product. Sec.132(b) amends this, dangerously, in two key ways:

    a) “Credible evidence or information” is replaced with “reason to believe”;
    b) “Presents a threat of serious adverse health consequences to humans or animals” is replaced with, “adulterated, misbranded, or otherwise in violation with any section of this act”.

    Put otherwise: if any qualified FDA officer has reason to believe that your supplement or food stuff violates this addendum in any way, your food stuff or supplement may be recalled with a ten day notice; further, if you are found to be in violation of these completely willy-nilly and ad hoc regulations, you are subject to a maximum of ten years in prison, with a maximum fine of $500,000 dollars.
