Health options, whether allopathic or alternative, should absolutely be at our discretion. However, we're up against a fierce, formidable, greedy monster: the pharmaceutical industry. They're fighting tooth and nail to outlaw natural alternatives and keep this nation sick with their un-natural drugs. They have the FDA, AMA, and NIH firmly in their pockets and have an army of lobbyists (almost 7 per legislator!) swarming D.C. Big Pharma declared $758 million spent on lobbying last year! Our government, unfortunately, is more concerned with coddling these corporations than our right to manage our health as we see fit. Despite overwhelming public support for health freedom, they have repeatedly caved in to the demands of these giants. They now stand poised to outlaw Natural and Nutritional Medicine-eliminating amino acids, therapeutic-grade vitamins and minerals via the WTO's Codex Alimentarius.

In a USDA study of 21,500 people, not one got 100% the RDA from food they ate. Thanks to the repeated use of insecticides, pesticides, and man-made chemical fertilizer, soil is devoid of nutrients. It's impossible to obtain the nutrition we need unless we eat all organically-grown food. Supplementation is vital. Big Pharma is in the business of making medicine that is an affront to our bodies. People are recognizing the body is a holistic entity, not a machine with a part to fix here or there. Holistic, natural healing gets to the root of the cause, using gentle, safe, effective remedies found in Nature. The pharmaceuticals, with their enormous power and sway over Washington, know that healthy, self-educated (they try their best to suppress health news) people mean less profits. Let's look at some statistics. Government would have you continue with their cronies' drugs, officially the #4 cause of deaths in the U.S. with over 100,000 attributed to drugs correctly prescribed with the right dosage. This number does not take into account adverse reactions to drugs, incorrectly prescribed drugs, other doctor and hospital mistakes and infections. This brings the total to over 700,000-and these are the reported numbers! This realistically makes allopathic (modern) medicine the #1 killer! Deaths attributed to vitamins, minerals, herbal combinations, and single herbs is infinitisimal in comparison. Most years number 0 for vitamins; 2-3 for minerals, mainly iron; 13 from herbal combinations; 3 from single herbs. All from ingesting way more than they should have. Not bad for more than 53 billion doses. Write or call you representatives and demand they keep supplements safe and available. Get government out of this very personal aspect of our lives.
