Action Alert—Now the FDA Is Going After Vitamin C!

Vitamin C

The FDA has just notified one pharmacy that it will no longer be allowed to manufacture or distribute injectable vitamin C—despite its remarkable power to heal conditions that conventional medicine can’t touch. Please help reverse this outrageous decision!

Let’s get this straight. The government acknowledges the risk of a worldwide flu pandemic. It acknowledges that conventional drugs cannot cure big viruses-like the mononucleosis and hepatitis viruses, many influenza viruses, and many others. It acknowledges that many bacteria have become resistant to antibiotics and are killing increasing thousands. It acknowledges the risk of a worldwide drug-resistant TB pandemic.

Despite acknowledging all this, it now insists on wiping out one of the best potential treatments for these conditions and for certain cancers as well. And why is this being done? What possible rationale is offered? Because it’s dangerous? No. Because it can’t be patented and therefore won’t be taken through the standard FDA approval process. No matter that vitamin C is one of the least toxic components of our food supply and liquid forms of it have been used safely for decades.

By the way, here is what is not safe. Don’t substitute home-made vitamin C solution for pharmaceutical grade liquid. That is not safe for injection. If the FDA action leads someone to do that, the FDA should be held responsible for the results.

The government, instead of banning intravenous vitamin C, should instead be supporting research into it. Even though IV C is being used in burn units around the world, including in the US, and has been adopted by the military for this purpose, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) refuses to fund any studies using intravenous C in patients. There are privately funded studies currently underway, but of course these cannot continue if the FDA bans the substance.

With this pharmacy, the FDA also banned injectable magnesium chloride and injectable vitamin B-complex 100. These two substances are routinely added to intravenous C to make the “Myers Cocktail,” used especially for conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, and infectious diseases such as hepatitis, AIDS, mononucleosis, and flu. The FDA is not going after the Myers Cocktail directly, but is rather attacking each individual substance used to make the cocktail, and may conceivably be going after injectable vitamins and minerals in general, despite such injections being given under the care of a qualified physician.

Please contact the FDA right away, and tell them to stop this foolish war on intravenous vitamin C!

Each of us reading this should think, “Intravenous C could someday save my life.” Dr. Jonathan Collin, editor of the Townsend Letter, discusses the case of a man in New Zealand who nearly died from swine flu. After developing a severe fever and upper respiratory infection, his condition deteriorated and he became comatose. Eventually even a ventilator was insufficient to keep him breathing because his lungs were so compromised by pulmonary edema. After weeks of heroic intervention, doctors decided there was no chance of survival and nothing further should be done for him.

The family asked the hospital to administer intravenous vitamin C. After much disagreement, the hospital gave him 25 grams of vitamin C every 6 hours. There was so much improvement over the next two days that the hospital decided to reinstate his intensive care—but they discontinued the vitamin C, saying that he had improved only because they had rolled him onto his side or his stomach instead of keeping him on his back! Not surprisingly, his condition once again deteriorated.

The family moved him to another facility that reluctantly allowed the IV vitamin C (albeit at a lower dose), and his lung function gradually improved. He came out of coma after four weeks, and after taking vitamin C orally, he gradually improved enough to be discharged. One year later, he was back to flying his plane and surveying his farm in New Zealand. None of the doctors who fought so hard to prevent his treatment with vitamin C have ever acknowledged their error.

Even people in perfectly good health may not be getting enough vitamin C. We recently noted the research that up to 87% of Americans are vitamin D deficient. But studies also show that many people may be deficient in vitamin C as well. A recent study on 1,000 Canadian adults found 33% had suboptimal levels of vitamin C—one in seven was “very deficient”—which could place them at increased risk for chronic health problems. Those who were vitamin C deficient were also more likely to have larger waists, greater body mass, and higher blood pressure.

The study’s author, Dr. Ahmed El-Sohemy, suggested eating fruits and vegetables high in vitamin C, such as citrus fruits and peppers, or taking supplements. The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) in nonsmoking adults is 90 mg per day for men and 75 mg for women, though some experts say a minimum daily dose of 120 to 200 mg is more appropriate, and some routinely take much higher doses themselves. Research also shows that people suffering from various diseases may benefit from larger amounts. In the case of the common cold, a review of published trials found that amounts of 2 grams per day appear to be more effective than 1 gram.

But there is a big difference between oral vitamin C and intravenous C. One maintains your health. The other seems to directly attack pathogens and cancer cells. Vitamin C taken orally will not do this, because the concentration does not seem sufficient to accomplish the task.

Please take action immediately! Please contact the FDA, and tell them to take their job of protecting our health seriously—by allowing injectable vitamin C, magnesium chloride, and vitamin B-complex 100 to continue being manufactured and sold! And don’t accept the answer that these substances need to be taken through the full FDA approval process. These are not patentable substances and no one will pay billions to do that. To require a standard approval process for them is identical to banning them, as the FDA know full well.

    Shouldn’t the FDA ban all of the prescription medicine that kill millions of people and have NEVER been proven safe?!?! Oh wait, there is too much money involved for them to ban prescription medication!

  2. I’ve been in the health field interpreting blood chemistry, doing research, consulting, and teaching for 54 years. Along the way I authored the first medical reference book on chronic mercury toxicity and Intravenous vitamin C. Chapter 5 of the book, “Chronic Mercury Toxicity: New Hope”, remains to this day the best reference for the safety of intravenous vitamin C. The chapter on the logic of choosing Lactated Ringer’s Solution as the best and safest parenteral solution is well referenced. Doctors have been administering IV-C ever since vitamin C was first discovered. By pushing the dosage until some positive pharmacological outcome was noted turned out to be 750 mg/kg body wt. Over the years only 5 deaths have been reported in the literature and these 5 deaths were somewhat predictable to any doctor who bothered to do a chemistry prior to administering it. Aspirin, on the other hand, has killed many thousands of people over the same time period. Vitamin C IV is the safest and most readily available source of life-saving, life-enhancing high energy electrons. It is for this reason, not its vitamin function, that IV-C has proven to be so very useful in the physicians daily practice.

    The United States “government” (and all its alphabet soup agencies) is a corporation, a privately owned subsidiary of the London “Crown” corporation. Its purpose is the orderly extraction of interest (tax) incurred on debt owed to private banking houses (the ones that own the private “Federal” Reserve). The United States Corporation went into bankruptcy four times (there were four international defaults on US Corp. debt since the corporation’s inception: 1789, 1859, 1929 and 1999 – every seventy years, which is when the international notes come due).

    Instead of getting repaid, each time the debt was restructured. During the first bankruptcy reorganization (1789) the US nation lost its sovereignty, and the London corporation took over its government. After the second default the participating states lost their sovereignty, and Crown-owned administrative corporations replaced them. In the third bankruptcy (1929), the labor of US citizens was pledged in form of income tax and social security system and offered as collateral, with birth certificates as securities. The latest bankruptcy in 1999 pledged the retirement accounts, property and bodies of all citizens. This explains the Obama health care plan and police state crack down.

    The bodies (cattle) were offered as security by our corrupt government officials/agents of the Rothschild banks. They own you. You have been signed away and rendered as repayment, as executed under the Health Care Reform Act. The government corporation now owns your bodies. You are cattle owned by the financiers).

    This allows the legal culling of the population. In the interest of profit, the herd must be reduced to productive units only. Only productive units will be allowed to live. The property is confiscated. The herd must not know. This is done secretly. The best way to “off” the sick secretly is via medical treatment.

    This is where the FDA comes in. The job of the FDA is not health. This agency is in charge of instituting policies that kill off the weak, which includes the elderly. So now you know. What are you going to do about it?

    I have severe osteoporosis and during my last medical visit I was asked if I was taking any drugs, I replied, “No I don’t take drugs.” The nurse said, “Aren’t you taking calcium?” I said, “Yes I am; calcium is not a drug”. The nurse replied, “It’s a medicine”. I said, “It’s a natural supplement”. Nurse replied, “It’s a medicine”. The exact same thing happened during another medical visit prior to having elective cosmetic surgery the same month. I think it was regarding vitamin C, I’m not sure.

    Apparently, the medical industry is now fraudulently identifying vitamins/dietary supplements as drugs. This action is leading to the banning of all natural supplements/vitamins, because they are deemed “drugs”. . If you say a big lie over and over again, it is eventually believed. The net is closing in. Petitions don’t work. This needs mainline attention, to wake up the sleeping public,and expose and eliminate the FDA, but it will never happen; Big Pharma owns/supports all media outlets, except for the internet.

    Please contact the FDA then tell your friends and family about this obvious overstep by a recently emboldened FDA. And be prepared to counter the misinformation and half truths that are sure to be spread by the biased mainstream media if this story should develop a following. Be knowledgeable and back up what you say with common sense. The battle of ideas continues and our liberties are at stake. Meanwhile, many Americans simply can’t be bothered with issues like this: they’re either too distracted in the pursuit of middle class living — and numb to the notion that the FDA or any governmental agency must be challenged every now and then — or, by contrast, they’re so caught up in the rigors of eking out a living in this difficult economy they’re at level one of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. The conscious community should be concerned — and active — on many levels.

    The FDA is once again protecting the market share of the pharmaceutical industry. Unfortunately, when you write to the FDA they do not have to listen to you. As a matter of fact I would say if they do listen to you they are likely to be fired.
    But your legislators, 1 congressmember and 2 senators do have to listen to you.
    If your legislator contact the chairman of the Commttee or the ranking minority member if your member is in the minority, that oversees FDA and THEY contact FDA, it may be taken seriously.

    I’m quite disturbed by this “Action Alert”, not because of what it says the FDA is doing but because of how ANH wrote it and people’s responses.

    What the article said was “The FDA has just notified one pharmacy…” What the ANH article did NOT say was anything about *why* the FDA told this pharmacy they “will no longer be allowed to manufacture or distribute injectable vitamin C”. I agree with Beryl (see comment January 5, 2011 at 7:54 am), there are a lot of reasons why the FDA may be actually protecting people by telling this one pharmacy they can’t manufacture or distribute injectibles. The ANH article also does not say whether this is a temporary situation or permanent. Perhaps it is something this pharmacy can correct so they can return to manufacturing and selling the injectable vitamin C again. Telling us WHY this happened is critical. I think ANH fell down on the job here.

    My family, friends and colleagues are all educated, thinking people, and most of them are extremely busy. I don’t recommend an info source unless it is intelligent, factual, reliable, and stays out of the “omg, the sky is falling!” category. I have been recommending ANH as a site that fits these criteria. Please continue to uphold that trust.

    Was this a case of accidentally deleting the information in a rush to publish? Or did someone omit critical information, hoping to keep the anti-”Food Safety” bill frenzy going? If so, did you not think that when you cried “Wolf!” at least some of us would question if it was actually a German Shephard?

    ANH, please provide the missing information so that your readers can make informed decisions on this story. If this is a case of the FDA being a bully and/or starting a new level in the campaign to remove our access to supplements, then that is important to know AND respond to. If it is not abuse but rather the FDA responding to a legitimate problem, everyone calling/emailing the FDA, their Congressional reps, Obama, et al, will just cause those people to increase their efforts at tuning us out.

    The ANH is an excellent organization of people who have fought the good fight to protect people’s health and rights and I believe you are continuing to do so. Please be meticulous in your efforts so you (and we) will continue to be effective.

    One of the positives I always cite when I share about the ANH is that your articles always include links to the original source material so that we can read the source for ourselves. This article broke that pattern. There are plenty of links to sources to support the assertion that supplemental vitamins and minerals are necessary for our health, but not one link to the source material about the FDA’s action again this one pharmacy.

    Again, I ask, please post the missing information, including a link to the source material for this article. If this is indeed a case of abuse of power, I will immediately be emailing/phoning my senators, representative, the FDA, the president and anyone else who can help. Thank you in advance for your help in clearing this up.

    Take your food and water, the FDA says it is safe. Inhale deeply, chemtrails do not exist. Only people who believe in aliens claim that they see “chemtrails” in the sky. These people need pharma drugs to get over their obsession. Get your vaccines; they will keep you safe; the FDA says so. Yes, after the shower you will get a cup of hot soup. Work will make you free.

    Just sent this. Hope they lissen. One problem is that the FDA does not have a lot ofclinicians. Mostly PhD types. I’m one myself, in addition to being an MD. So I know about the knowledge gap.

    Dear Dr. Schneeman

    To: The White House, Department of Health and Human Services and FDA:

    I am a concerned physician. My credentials as an MD, PhD pharmacologist/toxicologist exceed those of anyone who has ever worked for the FDA in its entire history. Likewise, I published my first paper on Vitamin-C in the top-line journal “Nature ” in 1970. It is clear that the FDA does not well understand the present and potential uses of Vitamin-C formulations.

    For example, the FDA recently ordered certain small manufacturers to stop making injectable Vitamin C, and some other injectable nutrients that are always used under a physician’s supervision.

    The companies would be forced to engage in full-scale drug approval testing for products that cannot be patented; this is economically impossible.

    I urge you to vacate this order.

    Yours truly,

    This would be laughable if it wasn’t true. All I can hope for is the panel members of the FDA get cancer. Then they can suffer the toxic chemo, be burn by radiation therapy or go under the knife. Then and only then, may they reconsider IV Vitamin C.

    By the way, I use IV Vitamin C from my veterinary supplier. It is exactly the same as human IV Vitamin C and only costs $11 per 100ml. By the way, I don’t live in the US, so the FDA can go and suck eggs. If someone wants to make their own, google Klenners Vitamin C protocol, otherwise move to a saner place like Canada or Australia.

    At first I was not certain how seriously to take this, as the article above states “The FDA has just notified one pharmacy that it will no longer be allowed to manufacture or distribute injectable vitamin C” without giving any references or stating which pharmacy. I thought this does not necessarily mean the FDA is trying to outlaw all injectable Vitamin C. It took some searching, but I finally found the details: here is the FDA’s letter to McGuff, which is not just “one pharmacy” but probably the largest manufacturer of injectable Vitamin C:
    http://www.fda.gov/ICECI/EnforcementActions/WarningLetters/ucm238251.htm
    Thus, I am quite concerned about the FDA’s actions. I don’t know if writing the FDA will do much good here and agree with those who say writing our Representatives and Senators may be a more useful strategy.

    People need to boycott the pharmaceutical companies one at a time until they are forced to do something about their drugs. Once one company takes a major profit hit the rest will start to wonder “am I next?” then keep hitting them one by one until something changes. At least 90% of the drugs out there have a natural counterpart which may not be as effective as the drug but none the less still works. Don’t forget in this day and age we are all virtually omniscient thanks to the Internet. Have a headache? google it. Got the flu? google it with the internet there should be no reason or excuse for a person not to be able to figure out natural remedies for whatever ails them except pure laziness. The reason these companies like pharmas and oil get the power is because we let them get that power by building a co-dependency on them because it makes our lives easier. We don’t need pills to heal when we can go to the market or the woods or even our back yards if we take the time to grow the stuff. We don’t need big oil if we just choose to work close to home and walk like they had to do barely 100 years ago. Big corporations all make things that make life easier and allow us to be lazier and by making us lazier and putting us in a pleasureful dream state where most of our stress and other big issues come from our own inability to either do for ourselves or an inability to deal with other people NOT like it was before big corporations where people stressed over real things like am I going to be able to find dinner out there today or are we just going to starve. And because we have grown so lazy we have also grown comfortable and secure with the way things are in the world because it allows us to fulfill our own selfish desires so we think “oh well as long as i get to watch the football game or the newest reality show or have my next drink” Therefore we cannot blame big companies for the state of our world because the government works for US we the people are the boss but somehow “BECAUSE ITS EASIER” we have allowed the government and big companies to take over. Then we like to sit here and post our comments and send our emails and faxes and feel like we have accomplished something but really how many emails do you think your congressman gets per day? How many trees are destroyed from unread faxes? Do you think they really read them all or do they do like we do and check the delete all button or fire up the shredder? The only way to get them to listen is the same way big changes have come in the past a HUGE personal appearance from we the people in order to form a more perfect union.

    It is clear to me that the BS behind this move is to force the American Public into vaccinations, again. Especially with the lastet story on TV regarding the Dr. who blew the whistle in 1998 on the dangers of vaccines and linked it to Autism……So of course, the FDA is going to jump on the band wagon and try to control the American public into buying the medical and pharmacuetical companies answers for more dollars. Believe me it is not about your health …..it is about your money.
    I’ve been using Vitamin C since the 1970’s and my entire family. It changes the outcome of cancer and is useful for detoxifying the body organs and especially the lungs after years of smoking. Vitamin C has been factors pointing to anti aging benefits, too.
    Shame on the FDA for showing their stupidity, again.

    The FDA is the right hand of the Agri/Pharma Industry. Big Pharma manufactures toxic chemicals in food, water, air, thereby causing illness and disease. Then Big Pharma treats these same “subjects” with their deadly drugs to slowly bring on the end of life, all the while enriching themselves as the bearers of Death.

    This is soft kill for insatiable greed. First they cause disease, and then they treat the disease with even more poison, all the while their victims pay for their own suffering and painful journey to Death.

    The FDA is joined with the Pharma Industry. They are one and the same. FDA and Big Pharma elite switch chairs, which makes the FDA guilty of collusion and worse; it pretends to represent American citizens, when in fact it IS BIG PHARMA ITSELF IN DIGUISE.

    The FDA is one EYE of BIG PHARMA OCTOPUS. The arms of Pharma Octopus reach far and wide and are the U.N., Bill Gates, Rockefeller, Kissinger, Bilderberg Group, Ted Turner, Corporatism, and NWO International Elite. Research Bill Gates. Two video’s showing Gates announcing his plan for ‘CULLING” humanity, via vaccines, water/food, and medical treatment, whereby a large audience applaud him. The large audience applauds Death, Extermination! This is a satanic controlled agenda.

    We, who have our eyes open, cannot win. We can and must stand up to evil, but the reality is we are overwhelmed. The NWO has planned this for many decades. The agenda is massive global extermination. Everything is in place. Time is short. Very short. The bottom line is we must cling to the Lord Jesus. He is coming back SOON and we must be ready. We must repent and follow Him. America’s days are numbered, she is Biblical Mystery, Babylon the Great that burns in one hour as Sodom and Gomorrah. Read Jeremiah chapter 50 and 51; Revelation Chapter 17 and 18. Research the Statue of Liberty.

I won’t touch anything made by Big Pharma, I’ve thrown out all OTC’s and I have stopped shopping in the grocery store. The FDA is allowing bathroom cleaning chemicals, petroleum based chemicals and brain eating chemicals in our food supply. Its a wonder we don’t glow in the dark! And their cozy relationship with Monsanto frightens me. People seriously need to study up on these issues. Your very health depends on it. Don’t be naive enough to think that the FDA has your back or you’ll end up on your back with a toe tag.

    Dr. Schalow makes a VERY GOOD point: Not sure writing to the FDA does much good.
    WE all should be screaming at our congressmen and representatives.
    THOSE are the local government contacts and even though they will tell us that they have nothing to do with the FDA, we then remind them that they NEED to because if we voted them into office they can be voted out. WE have all seen that this past election.

    EVERY time there is an issue that we are prompted to wrote to the FDA or USDA or any government agency we should also send copy to each of our local representatives.
    Along with that need need to form local coalition groups that can network with other groups.
    EVEY TIME a local political figure has a “town hall” meeting we as a group should be there to ask the question: “How many more of our RIGHTS and freedoms are going to be stripped away?”

    This is and has been a runaway government and a runaway federal agency country for far too many years. They are using our money to en-prison us and poison us and we are letting them.

    There wil lbe a lot of you that will not like this, but it is the only rational, logical, and most important of all, the only LEGAL route to take. END prohibitions of all intoxicants and you remove their excuses. How you say? Easy, our bill of rights number nine, with the ‘certain right’ that has been previously enumerated into the constition being the “intoxicant” liquor.

    “The enumeration in the constitution of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” BOR 9.

    Can you see how simple this is. Not only will it reverse the police state tendency for the past several decades, but it will remove a cubical jockey from the decision making process of whether or not you can have any pain relief. It is about controling YOUR pain level, and you will have to ‘Pay To Play’ their sick parasitic organized criminal inspired game. The only heroin junkies I klnew became that way because their doctor had to follow a ‘policy’ and they were taken off of the pain medications too soon or just cold turkey. After a broken hip? Think about that, pain control, not to rid it but to make you pay to get it.

    This prohibition mind extends to everything now according to the latest illegal laws they have passed.

    Do you want your vitimins to live a better life? Then end prohibitions the legal way, follow your Constitution for once. And to you “law enfiorcers” out there, live up to the oath YOU freely took with your hand on your Bible, and stop enforcing ANY law that restricts a Citizens freedom to live.
    You can throw any excuse to keep the current illegal prohibition system in place, and I’ll shoot that excuse down in one line, each time for any excuse. I am above those liars lies.

    Finally, the FDA acquiesces to the fact that IV vitamin C is good medicine by trying to ban it. There is no compelling reason to do this other than it actually could work and stands as a threat to synthetic medicines that were conceived for the perpetuation of business, not human life. They will most certainly produce a bag of excuses about IV vitamin C side effects, yet the most poisonous drugs with side effects such as “gives you a different kind of cancer” printed on the label are still available to inject yourself with at the pharmacy, and this is OK with the FDA. Is the FDA trying to kill the USA or is it simply corrupt?

    Did we the USA have a vote on whether to do this, or did the FDA just magically remove the option and right of all American citizens? Americans have the option to harm themselves in a million different ways with harmful synthetic drugs, and this is fine with the FDA. When it comes to IV vitamin C, the FDA must unilaterally but not surreptitiously remove Americans’ option to potentially help themselves. They are really doing a good job of ensnaring the USA in Fascism.

    Thank you for your concern. However we have looked at the demographic charts for the next twenty years and frankly our colleagues in the chemical/pharmaceutical industries and on the boards of our financial institutions simply will not be able to maintain profit levels and at the same time keep the aging American population healthy. In fact. we see an opportunity to increase profit margins while maintaining synergistic illness in the “boomer” population. This way we can acquire their retirement savings and reduce population pressures at the same time.

    As they say in the poor areas “Ain’t science grand!”

    If you were trained well in medical school and pharamcy school…there may not be this insanity.
    It is time to fire the FDA and the FTC,
    I have been using Vitamin C for years after I was left for dead.
    CPOD is a dangerous disease and high dosages and vitamin C IV’s have saved me.
    Linus Pauling all ready won the Nobal Prize for the benefits of vitamin C.
    Shame on You!

    Excuse me before you begin making assumptions you need to go back to school.
    I receive a monthly Vitamin C IV to help with the effects of CPOD and heart failure.
    I was left for dead. It has been through alternative choices and food supplements, careful diet, and exercise that I am alive, tody.
    You have overstepped your bounds.

    I am writing and calling the White House and I am notifiying Congress on how I feel.
    YOU HAVE OVERSTEPPED YOUR BOUNDARIES TO PROTECT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
    SHAME ON YOU!

    Well, I got my own verification on this – One well-known pharmacy in California was served with a notice to stop selling injectable ascorbic acid, magnesium chloride, and b-complex. This was confirmed by someone at the pharmacy.

    I honestly believe this all has been in motion for a very long time (many many years) They do want to depopulate and in the process they will get rich. All these drugs are not killing us right away. Instead they just kinda keep us alive. (example- the elderly in the nursing homes) they are miserable. why not give them good nutrition and supplements. Instead they are given multiple prescriptions and anyone who has taken a science course knows you do not mix all these drugswithout disaster. The entire population would rather take meds than take and active roll in their health. I blame all of us for allowing this thing to spiral. And yes I agree with other bloggers who suggest that to keep petionong does no good they are going to continue to stay with their agenda. we are treated as fools and for the most part we are. Like someone I know said, our politicians should all be brought back to their home town where they were voted in and hanged. They are all corrupt and if they aren’t before gettting in office they will be soon enough.There is no right answer any longer. Or is there? Maybe the answer lies in our Heart and soul. I guess we will all find out one day.In the mean time the best to all. God Bless us All

    Well it seems pretty obvious that most everyone who posted a reply realizes the FDA partakes in blatant corruption on a regular basis. How then are we to effectively express our disapproval? How is this supposed to be stopped?

    The masses are conditioned to feel helpless when standing up to this kind of large scale corruption/crime. A mass “FLOCK YOU!! !” to corruption in general would be nice.

    I have searched all over the net and could not find any verification at all of your advisement about the FDA preventing the manufacture or distribution by “small” pharmacies of vitamin C. As another poster has also requested, please cite your source or indicate a link on the FDA’s website where we can go to verify this.

    I think we should target these FDA people individually and find out who they are, then call them, e-mail them, write them, even at home, (en masse) and tell them what worthless traitors they are, call them cowards, and best of all CULLS, then let others know who these people are and get others on the bandwagon, peacefully, of course. Also, put a few voodoo banishing spells on them so they will go away.

    The reason they are doing this is called “eugenics.” They need to kill off as many thinkers as they can. Go read Agenda 21 by the UN. Listen to Alex Jones on http://www.prisonplanet.com They want us dead, ladies and gentlemen, and the evidence is in Agenda 21 and many other gov’t docs. Go do the reading. You will find out the truth. Jones is a good place to start.

    You people are ridiculous. You get so outraged over what you think you are reading that you won’t even bother to pay attention to what the author initially presents as fact – that the FDA is cracking down on SMALL pharmacies.

    Let’s overlook the fact that this… um, opinion piece should we call it?… doesn’t bother to further elaborate upon the FDA’s transgressions beyond the first line of this article. Nonetheless, I assume the author is referring to this recent release: http://www.fda.gov/Food/GuidanceComplianceRegulatoryInformation/GuidanceDocuments/SmallBusinessesSmallEntityComplianceGuides/ucm238182.htm

    If any of you take the time to read this (which I doubt any actually will), you’ll see that there is no great attack being waged against Vitamin C. It is all about regulatory guidelines to make sure that all the various herbs, vitamins, minerals and other “natural” things you want to shove in excess into your body will not hurt you. Because frankly, if you started injecting Vitamin C from an unregulated source into your body and later developed a bad infection or other complication, you’d be pretty pissed that the government wasn’t overseeing these things.

    And as a side note, injectable Vitamin C has only been shown to be useful against cancer. In mice and exactly 3 people. So technically it’s not a study and not proven, but a few case reports (since I’m not a mouse, I’m not going to bank too heavily on their results… but all of you with tails and excellent olfactory sense may want to think otherwise). This is like people winning the lottery. Say I luck out and picked the exact numbers for the lottery today, but before I found out the results I went home and had a glass of OJ. Maybe I can find a few other lottery winners that did the same. We can write up our findings that drinking OJ before the numbers are drawn is linked to winning the lottery. Reasonable? You’ll say no because they’re spatially disconnected, but the point is that you’re approaching this from a very biased perspective. What about all those millions of people over the years that have had a glass of OJ and didn’t win the lottery? Or those that loaded up on Vitamin C and still succumbed to their cancer? You don’t really think that those 3 people are the only ones that wanted to live badly enough that they sought out “alternative” treatments and tried high dose Vitamin C… do you?

    VERY IMPORTANT NEWS. The manufacturers of the most prevalent sweetener in the world have a secret, and it`s not a sweet one. Aspartame, an artificial sweetener found in thousands of products worldwide, has been found to be created using genetically modified (GM) bacteria. What`s even more shocking is how long this information has been known. A 1999 article by The Independent was the first to expose the abominable process in which aspartame was created. Ironically, the discovery was made around the same time as rich leaders around the globe met at the G8 Summit to discuss the safety of GM foods.

    The 1999 investigation found that Monsanto, the largest biotech corporation in the world, often used GM bacteria to produce aspartame in their US production plants. The end result is a fusion between two of the largest health hazards to ever hit the food industry — artificial sweeteners and an array of genetically altered organisms. Both have led to large-scale debate, with aspartame being the subject of multiple congressional hearings and scientific criticism. Scientists and health advocates are not the only ones to speak out against aspartame, however. The FDA received a flurry of complaints from consumers using NutraSweet, a product containing aspartame. Since 1992, the FDA has stopped documenting reports on the subject.

    The process in which aspartame is created involves combining an amino acid known as phenylalanine with aspartic acid. First synthesized in 1965, aspartame requires bacteria for the sole purpose of producing phenylalanine. Monsanto discovered that through genetically altering this bacteria, phenylalanine could be created much more quickly. In the report by The Independent, Monsanto openly admitted that their mutated bacteria is a staple in the creation process of aspartame.

    “We have two strains of bacteria – one is traditionally modified and one is genetically modified,” said the source from Monsanto. “It’s got a modified enzyme. It has one amino acid different.”

    Multiple studies have been conducted regarding genetic manipulation, with many grim conclusions. One study found that the more GM corn was fed to mice, the fewer babies they had. Another study, published in the International Journal of Biological Sciences, found that the organs that typically respond to chemical food poisoning were the first to encounter problems after subjects consumed GM foods. The same study also states that GM foods should not be commercialized.

    “For the first time in the world, we’ve proven that GMO are neither sufficiently healthy nor proper to be commercialized. [...] Each time, for all three GMOs, the kidneys and liver, which are the main organs that react to a chemical food poisoning, had problems,” indicated Gilles-Eric Seralini, an expert member of the Commission for Biotechnology Reevaluation.

    Consumer groups are now curious as to whether or not other products secretly contain genetically modified ingredients. Due to the fact that the finished product`s DNA does not change when using genetically modified bacteria, it is hard to know for sure. With the FDA ruling against the labeling of GM salmon, it is becoming more of a challenge to determine whether or not a product contains GM ingredients. Consumers are voicing their opposition for GM ingredients going incognito, with the largest growing retail brand being GMO-free products.

    “The public wants to know and the public has a right to know,” said Marion Nestle, a professor in the Nutrition, Food Studies and Public Health Department at New York University.

    Unveiling the secret process in which aspartame is created acts as yet another reminder to stay away from artificial sweeteners, and one should choose natural alternatives such as palm sugar, xylitol, or stevia.

    Lets start getting people in the FDA to reform it. Lets get in there and protect the freedoms. Lets get in there and see why all the corruption. Lets take it over. Lets not let them take us over. It’s like an infection. Oh, I know, lets inject some vitamin C and clear it up!
    I am seriously going to see what the requirements are for working for the FDA. If it means taking more courses at college, that is what I am preparing to do. I don’t believe we can do this from the outside, in. I believe we need to get “in” there and start cleaning it up and out.
    Get rid of the manipulators and bring in the motivators of healthy living. Get rid of the greed and bring in the good for all! After all, we the people, started this country and what it stands for. We the people can make a difference. We just need to start!

  50. As I understand, this action is not about vitamin C. It’s about McGuff not complying with safe pharmaceutical practices. I’m attaching the link to the the FDA letter to McGuff. I spoke with 2 other compounding pharmacies and at this time there is no real industry problem with vitamin C.

    It’s important to get all the facts.
