Let’s talk this one out until it is heard!
The Senate next meets Nov 30, 2009, tomorrow; the House next meets Dec 1, 2009.
We have 3 bills submitted to Congress from Congressman Ron Paul that are worth us activating a social media conversation that rally’s our public voice to be heard and acted upon. I realize this may not be new news to some but the point is that these three bills were submitted on July 29, 2009 with very little news coverage.
You know the old adage: the squeaky wheel gets the oil – so here’s my squeak!
HR 3394 is the Freedom of Health Speech Act, HR 3395 is the Health Freedom Act, and HR 3396 is the Congressional Responsibility Act.
At the present moment, this website is at risk of being shut down if we were to use terminology like ‘release your toxins with a colon cleanse’ or ‘this herb is our number one recommendation for Lyme disease.’
HR 3394 is simply re-stating our constitutional rights, directed specifically at the Federal Trade Commission to sit down and knock it off. The Fifth Amendment requires that the Federal Trade Commission bear the burden of proving advertising is deceptive. The First Amendment requires that the FTC not act against speech unless the speech is provably false. The FTC is responsible for proving guilt, just like any other group (or individual) would be who presses charges. If not, it is a witch hunt and we all know that it has felt more and more like this over the years.
HR 3395 is my favorite. This bill removes the FDA’s power of prior restraint over all nutrient-disease relationship claims. Under this bill, the FDA may not prohibit any statement concerning a nutrient affecting a disease (including treatment effects) from being made in the market and may only act against a statement if the agency possesses clear and convincing evidence that the statement is false.
The Team at The Fountain of Wellness have long been advocates of the idea that nutrition is your best medicine. Anyone who ever remembers being an athlete can attest to the direct correlation between food and performance. As nutritional coaches for decades now, we have hundreds of testimonials from clients that had a wonderful surprise side effect from their balanced weight loss program.
Here we go sticking our neck out…we have years of professional experience that demonstrates that processed foods will directly affect how stiff and achy your joints function and feel.
Once our clients started on a diet that was say even 25% raw and cut out the processed and preserve laden bread, crackers and foods out of a box, they noticed their arthritis pain subsiding… YES. YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT AND DRINK.
The next time you get a tummy ache, rather than reach for an anti-acid product to band aid the issue, make a much healthier choice and to stop eating the plasticized food substances whose shelf life is potentially longer than yours!
Now HR 3396 is one of those bills directed at closing a loop hole within our present system. Under Article I of the Constitution, our elected representatives are the ones given the exclusive power to make laws. However the regulatory agencies have been passing regulations without actually taking them to Congress to be passed into law. Very nice move Ron Paul…may the force be with you.
We have long discussed the slow decay of our ability to be free, choose wisely for ourselves, and share viable health and wellness information with out a physician’s license. Now is the time to use the incredible tour de force media platform called the “Internet” to make our vote actually count, make our voice be unified for a healthy change, and put self empowerment back in our stride.
I know I’m tired of the ‘false advertising’ being pushed at my family through all the major media channels. I say these are false advertising agendas because they are sponsored by companies with economic interests in my sickness, not my healing. We are constantly being imprinted with ideas of lack and insecurity about our body image, and pushed into this weird need to consume in order to feel excited about something. And almost all these types of products have a list of side effects that will kill you!
The other day I saw a billboard that read: “Learn the early signs for autism so you can watch for them.” What??? Wait a minute, why isn’t this reading “Learn the latest medical research into autism and it’s connection to mercury poisoning and other toxins.” Or “Learn the number one risk factor for autism and why the pharmaceutical companies changed the ingredients on the 18 month MMR shot for infants.”
Although once considered rare, during the last two decades the chance of a child being diagnosed with autism has skyrocketed from one in 10,000 to one in 150. This is simply uncalled for and because our sickness is the money maker and not our health we are NOT getting the information that matters most for us.
It is obvious when we look right at all this, politics should not have ‘buy money’ in it and pharmaceutical companies should be held accountable for their products. On Sept 2, 2009, this can over the wire; American pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Inc. and its subsidiary Pharmacia & Upjohn Company Inc. (hereinafter together “Pfizer”) have agreed to pay $2.3 billion, the largest health care fraud settlement in the history of the Department of Justice…Pharmacia & Upjohn Company has agreed to plead guilty to a felony violation of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act for misbranding Bextra with the intent to defraud or mislead.
These folks are not our friends, to say the very least…
Please be sure to do your own research before just popping a pill from your doctor. (Or even worse, because you just watched an ad for the product on TV) It’s easy enough to say thank you to the doc and then go home and do some googling. The better informed you are, the better a patient you become for your self!
What we really hope for is that you discover the alternative! Being healthy is our natural state of being and bringing your own health awareness back to this natural state starts with questioning everything.
How fun is that! Now go have a big glass of water and start feeling better right away.
