Since it seems apparent that the FDA is a shill for Big Pharma,
this kind of treatment is to be expected. There is no doubt that the
drug industry has a deep fear of the supplement people, some of whom
actually have useful and cheaper products, so the bosses tell their
lackeys to dump on this one and that one to slow them down while they
purvey vaccines to everyone, some even tested for a month or two.

Check into the truth about the horrible H1N1 Swine Flu 'pandemic'
that never materialized. The CDC was faking their numbers since Aug
31, 2009, and they even announced it on their website. They were
taking every single report of 'possible' swine flu from the states and
just counting them all as swine flu. They refused to answer
questionsd from CBS news researchers on the reports coming in, and
then they even ignored a 'Freedom of Information' request for the
data. CBS then went to all the states and compiled the truth from
them.

As it turns out, over 80% of reports of swine flu weren't even flu
of any kind. And of the total reports, only 3% were swine flu.
Here's the link:

http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=5405872n&tag=contentMain;contentBody

Harvard also did a study on the Swine Flu 'pandemic' and figured it
was oversold. Here's the link:

http://abcnews.go.com/Health/SwineFluNews/swine-flu-blown-proportion/story?id=9270149&cid=yahoo_pitchlist

Slowly but surely the truth will come out and the drug companies
will be trusted less and less each day. Sad because there was a time
when they actually did some good for humanity.

No that is the way the world works. If industry wants
something it tends to get it. Want a recombinant seed,
it will tend to come with time. People will be hired
to promote it use one way or another.

Ever hear of the revolving door between industry and
government regulator bodies? Can you say banking
troubles? Big Pharma is big and powerful and control
one of the most powerful "lobbies."

The USFDA is in part BS as is EFSA.......................Trig
