How the FDA Protects us from Dangerous Foods and Supplements

The FDA is one of the most essential public safety institutions, making sure that the foods, supplements and pharmaceutical drugs we consume are clean and safe, and that no harmful, incorrect claims are made about their supposed “health benefits”. The FDA is the gatekeeper of all things health-related, so if you want to make any kind of health claim through your company, you better make sure the FDA is OK with it, because no matter how much “evidence” you think you have, it’s not OK until the FDA says it is.

Many quacks have been shut down by the FDA for their dangerous claims about the benefits of so-called “natural” nutrients. Dr Mercola even had his sunbed line shut down because he made the claim that UVB radiation could stimulate vitamin D, and was less likely to cause cancer. As every accredited doctor knows, this is a ludicrous claim that could only be made by someone who doesn’t understand science. Other health companies have been told that they can’t make claims about the health benefits of coffee or green tea, as these have not yet been verified by the FDA, and probably never will be.

Simultaneously, the FDA has approved many healthy, safe and effective drugs like statins, proven to be effective in lowering the rates of heart disease and to have no serious side effects, other than lowering peoples’ testosterone levels. The FDA approves mercury fillings, mercury-based preservatives in vaccines, fluoride in the water and baby formulas consisting of 50% sugar and high fructose corn syrup:

But the dangerous herb kratom is on a watch list and may be banned soon, due to its unknown side effects, and its competition with accredited anti-depressants.

The great thing about the FDA is that it’s almost impossible to get approval for a non-accredited health claim, or supplement, no matter how much evidence you have, due to the cost, laborious process and disagreeable attitudes of FDA officials. You need to be an accredited corporation with hundreds of millions of dollars to have any sway with the FDA, or you stand no chance. This keeps all kinds of products off the market that may be helpful, but just cannot be verified as safe and effective for sure, due to the non-accreditation of the people putting them forward.

Many anti-government conspiracy theorists claim that the FDA is only there to protect large corporations and ban products that compete with their industries, such as natural products that can’t be patented and compete with patented pharmaceuticals, or health claims that hurt industries, such as claims about the harmful effects of EMFs from cell phones, or the dangers of glyphosate. It’s sad that some people are never satisfied with the world they live in, and always want to criticize the very institutions that are keeping them safe. It’s time to ban not only non-accredited health claims, but also statements that undermine the FDA and the very fabric of our health and safety infrastructure. It’s time for us to pull together and work with the FDA, rather than against them, so that we can all live in the safe and healthy society that we want to live in.

Yes, our gold-plated and conflict-ridden FDA; what would we do without it? How about quadrupling the budgets to investigate it? “Was mich nicht umbringt macht mich stärker.”

They found only one criminal in the FDA/CDC/USDA setup?

I would say Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is an eunuch, who found an useful distraction in Poul Thorsen.

Mercury does not cause autism. It’s good for you, just like fluoride.

What the hell does that mean? Did you join the SS or something? Go back to Berlin.

The reason why they want 100% vaccine coverage under threat of jail, is that you will not have a reference (of healthy, non-vaccinated kids) to question the eunuchs.
The same thing goes for soaking the streets, and water supplies with bleach, to fight zika, or hepatitis. 100%, so that no one can see healthy “zika affected” but bleach free people.

I suggest Abou Berete sell off his country to corporations, so that they move the people into smart colonies, and strip mine the whole country.

Then UN can come in and make everyone eat soy-based baby formula from Abbott Laboratories under their SDGs/Agenda 2030. Every nutrient has been tested scientifically, and is clinically proven to make Bill Gates drool. 42.6 corn syrup solids, 14.7 soy protein isolate?

Breitbart and Drudge were/are both Jewish, but they are not real news. So your numbers are wrong.

I’ve gone back through FDA records and, as far as I can tell, they have never declared as safe vitamin D from natural sunlight. Until they do so, I will continue to venture out of my abode only when strictly necessary and while wearing a thick coat of factor 50 sun block.

No clinical trials have EVER proven that any so-called vitamins and minerals provide any benefit to human health. It’s all quackery.

We’ve finally found BLM with his miscreants, at the James Comey keynote at Howard Univ, a black “college” which hasn’t had a noteworthy grad in 40 years.

Black Lives Matter

Thank you so much for posting this. I was at the protests today. I don’t go to Howard, but my aunt did, so I really felt I needed to show solidarity against the Trump administration. Comey stole the election from Hillary with his fake email investigation.

NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE!

Use a different name. The name you have been using recently is offensive. It’s like saying “All Lives Matter.”

Black Lives Matter

I didn’t add the brony to your picture. You can change your picture by going to your profile and adding a different picture, or use a different name, like Neo-Anon or Anon1.

You have got to stop spamming the comments with this trash. I don’t want to read that crap, and no one else does as either. That kind of language will get this site banned from people who want to read it at work. Change the name, or the posts get deleted.

You are one sick bastard. I hope the NSA is keeping tabs on you closely.

That baby formula is very healthy. Carbohydrates make up the bulk of the calories in breast milk. Although milk carbohydrates are mainly lactose, which consists of glucose and galactose, high fructose corn syrup and table sugar are very similar, containing glucose and fructose. Fructose is found in fruit; therefore it is very healthy. The ratio of carbohydrates to fats and proteins also is similar to that found in real breast milk. Although there are certain things missing (like immunoglobulins and creatine), we have too many babies, particularly white ones, so if some of them die, it’s really not a big deal.

Also, the other ingredients include all the vitamins and minerals that a healthy baby needs. People get scared by the “artificial” ingredients, but it’s all natural — it’s basically like taking a multivitamin.

Black Lives Matter

It’s called arguing in the alternative. Two points:

1. Vitamins are quackery.
2. Even if they were not quackery, which is frankly ridiculous, the corn syrup lactose-free milk has them covered.

Either way, the baby is healthy.
