Senate Bill 510

(NaturalNews) Proponents of Senate Bill 510 -- the Food Safety and Modernization Act -- keep trying to claim that we need the FDA to protect us from tainted eggs, lettuce, onions and spinach. On the surface, it seems like a reasonable argument: No one should ever die from unsafe food in America, right?

But to accomplish a net reduction in deaths, you'd need to grant power over the food supply to some organization that actually respects human life... and the FDA is not that organization. In fact, as we have documented here on NaturalNews over the last seven years, the FDA is responsible for far more deaths of Americans than all the terrorist events in the history of the world -- combined!

How is that so?

How the FDA has killed millions of Americans

Well, for starters, the FDA has a long and rather dubious history of keeping dangerous, deadly drugs on the market even after it knows those drugs are killing people. The FDA has even gone out of its way to ignore critical evidence about dangerous drugs in order to appease its Big Pharma clients and keep those high-profit drugs selling while people are dying.

To see one example of this, look at the history of Vioxx -- a drug the FDA kept on the market while it racked up well over 60,000 deaths according to the FDA's own scientists! (https://www.naturalnews.com/011401_Dr_David_G...)

As Dr David Graham said in an interview, "The FDA is responsible for 140,000 heart attacks and 60,000 dead Americans. That's as many people as were killed in the Vietnam War. Yet the FDA points the finger at me and says, Well, this guy's a rat, you can't trust him,' but nobody is calling them to account. Congress isn't calling them to account."

If you want more evidence of the FDA's outrageous disregard for human life, look at the agency's handling of the drug Ketek (https://www.naturalnews.com/019698.html). Or check out how the FDA kept the liver-damaging drug Rezulin on the market while diabetic Americans were dropping dead.

The FDA's own scientists have repeatedly accused the agency of engaging in routine intimidation of scientists who try to call attention to dangerous products (https://www.naturalnews.com/025298_the_FDA_sc...).

The FDA censors natural remedies that could save lives

On top of all that corruption and fraud leading to negligent deaths caused by the FDA, this agency also censors the scientific truth about natural remedies and nutritional supplements that could save millions of lives each year. The FDA won't, for example, allow vitamin D supplement companies to tell the truth about how vitamin D prevents cancer or how vitamin D prevents the flu and makes seasonal flu vaccines obsolete (https://www.naturalnews.com/029760_vitamin_D_...).

The FDA also won't allow any supplement companies to tell the truth about their natural remedies for preventing or even reversing diabetes, heart disease, breast cancer and more.

In doing this, the FDA is complicit in the deaths of at least 250,000 Americans each year. 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. The FDA has a hand in at least one-third of those deaths, mostly from its willful corruption and fraud in the world of deadly pharmaceuticals, which have proven to be far more deadly than terrorists (https://www.naturalnews.com/009278.html).

If you do the math on all this, you are forced to reach some startling mathematical conclusions:

• The FDA is more dangerous than all the terrorists and terror events in the history of the United States.

• The FDA has killed more Americans than the entire Vietnam War.

• Even more than that, over the last 20 years the FDA has killed more Americans than the total number who died in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War and even the Civil War -- combined!

• The FDA is the single most deadly agency that has ever existed in the history of the United States. It is responsible for more body bags, more funerals, more pain and suffering than even the Department of Defense!

• The FDA does not value human life. It has no compassion for real people. It is driven by politics and money, and it answers to the demands of powerful corporations who control its agenda (https://www.naturalnews.com/019497.html).

So now, let me get this straight. With Senate Bill 510 we are going to hand over control over the food supply to the most nefarious, corrupt and deadly agency that has ever existed in the history of the United States of America?

FDA could outlaw all raw vegetables

The FDA has killed more people than the CIA, FBI, ATF and DEA combined. This agency is technically responsible for the negligent homicide of countless American men, women, children and senior citizens. It has stood by and allowed modern psychiatry to drug our children into violent behavior. It has censored the truth about nutrition and natural remedies, and it has enforced a campaign of nutritional ignorance among the American people, making sure that virtually all competition to Big Pharma's patented drugs is completely wiped out (or criminalized).

The FDA has criminalized your raw milk, turning farmers into felons. The FDA once ordered the burning of recipe books containing stevia recipes as part of its effort to outlaw this natural sweetener (in order to protect aspartame profits). (https://www.naturalnews.com/001552.html)

And now the U.S. Congress wants this agency in charge of your food?

What madness is this?

We're going to take the largest killer in the history of America and give it the power to control the growing of foods, the saving of seeds and even the operations of small family farms?

Can you imagine what the FDA is going to do with that kind of power? Trust me: It won't be pretty. It may even be fatal. I can just see this agency outlawing all vegetables unless they're irradiated. They might outlaw raw food and require all food be pasteurized. They could ban not just raw milk but even raw broccoli.

Sound crazy? Sure it does! But so does the idea of raw milk being criminalized in America, too. America was raised on raw milk. What do you think Thomas Jefferson drank at his farm? What do you think kept the pioneers alive in the harsh Midwest winters?

If the FDA can outlaw raw milk, they can outlaw anything. And Senate Bill 510 would give them all the power they need to do this.

Never give a psychopath explosives

It's a dangerous deal with the devil, of course. Handing the FDA power over the food supply is like giving a violent psycho access to military-grade explosives. The net result can only be catastrophic and deadly.

I'm all for the idea of "safe food," but not if it involves taking the most dangerous government agency in the history of America and putting it in charge of the way we grow food, store seeds, harvest crops and package food products.

Do we need to "modernize" our food creation systems in America? Sure we do, but not at the cost of making us all victims of a dangerous, corrupt and downright disastrously managed U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

And besides, virtually all the contamination of food we're seeing today is due to factory animal farming runoff. That's where e.coli comes from, by the way. E.coli is an intestinal pathogen and plants don't have intestines. It can only be harbored in animals. (http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/art...)

So the problem with our food supply is not that the FDA doesn't yet have enough power; it's that we have abusive, cruel and ridiculously unclean factory animal farms operating in America that are contaminating the vegetables. If you really want to clean up the food supply, just crack down on the factory animal farms and let the veggie growers get back to work doing what they do best: Growing healthful, nutrient-rich vegetables that help keep America healthy.
