(NaturalNews) The "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009" is about to be passed and signed by President Obama. And yet, as of today, almost no one has read the bill! American citizens, journalists and stakeholder haven't had time yet to even read the bill, much less actually discuss or debate it. This is being shoved through Congress under a fear mongering tactic that smacks of the Bush Administration's Patriot Act push.

The few who have been able to poke around the bill have found alarming new language about sweeping changes to health care that could, for example, outlaw independent decision making by doctors. Other provisions call for all patient records to be kept in a government database, then potentially shared with as many as 500,000 medical entities who would know everything about your health history. There's even concern that such health information could be sold to marketing companies who start sending you junk mail on the basis of your disease diagnosis. Read Declan McCullagh's excellent report on the bill here: http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-10161233-3...

What is all this health care language doing in an "economic stimulus" bill? It's simple: It's a quick-and-dirty way to sweep in Big Brother medicine while avoiding any public debate on the issue.

Doesn't the issue of health care reform deserve thoughtful, sober debate?

Now we need your help to read this bill and find any suspicious language that might grant the federal government sweeping new powers that trample on health freedoms.

You can find the full text of the *House* version of the bill here: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d111...

Or just go to http://thomas.loc.gov and search for H.R.1. (We are still trying to find the full text of the Senate version of the bill.) As of right now, a link on the Thomas page goes right to the bill. It's in red, "HR1: The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009."

As you read the bill, watch for words like "harmonized," which could mean the U.S. is about to adopt elements like CODEX Alimentarius.

Sweeping health care changes with NO debate

This bill looks to be a Trojan Horse, ushering in sweeping health care changes with absolutely NO debate. It is the Tom Daschle socialized medicine agenda, hidden inside an economic stimulus bill.

We need your help to find out what's really in it.

Please post anything you find in the Google FriendConnect comment form below or send it to us through our feedback form: www.NaturalNews.com/feedback.html

With your help, we will attempt to identify and publicize the actual language in the bill.

Do not let Obama pass sweeping health care changes under the guise of an emergency economic stimulus bill! These issues need to be debated through a sober, careful process, not passed under the cover of a fear-driven stimulus package.

Many of the health care ideas in this bill might be good, in fact. But we don't know yet, and nobody really knows since almost nobody has read it. That includes all the members of the House and Senate who are actually voting on the bill!

Watch for updates on this important issue here on NaturalNews.

For those posting comments about this bill, do not COMMENT on this bill until you have READ it! Almost nobody has actually read it (myself included). That's why we need to stop this fear-based passage effort, pause, get our heads on straight and debate these issues properly. Such sweeping changes in health care should never be passed under the guise of a fly-by-night economic stimulus bill that avoids any real public debate.

Once you read the bill, feel free to comment in favor of the bill or against the bill. But read the bill first before you sound off. It's 800 pages long, by the way. Approximately 140 pages are dedicated to health care changes, I've read.

And ask yourself this: What does all this health care power grab have to do with the bailout anyway?

He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
