FDA Looking to Ban B6 Supplements, Give Boost to Big Pharma

Human beings cannot live without vitamin B-6. It is also important for the prevention of cancer and the prevention and treatment of seizures, anemia, mental disorders including schizophrenia, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other conditions. Its effect on carpal tunnel can seem almost miraculous.

A natural form of the vitamin, Pyridoxamine, was recently yanked off the market by the FDA. Why? Because a pharmaceutical company, BioStratum, wanted sole use of pyridoxamine in a drug, a drug which may or may not ever appear. The company filed a so-called citizens petition and the FDA agreed, notwithstanding protests from ANH-USA, other organizations, and thousands of citizens. You might ask: how can Pharma take a supplement off the market and claim exclusive use of it as a prescription drug? The FDA does not presently feel obligated to answer this question.

Unfortunately, this isn’t all the bad news about vitamin B6. All forms of B-6, natural or synthetic, must be converted to P5P, another natural form, for the body to use it. Another drug company, Medicure Pharma, wants sole use of P5P and so has petitioned the FDA to ban its use as a supplement as well.

This is the first step in a proposed global agenda via the .....

PTB/NWO through one of their many vehicles of earthly destruction the World Health Organization. I believe this very much is the initial global stage in the NWO's goal of the prescriptionization of all nutritional supplements via the Codex Alimentarius through the WHO to solely financially benefit every Pharmaceutical Drug Company on the planet. And of course the beneficiaries will be the Money Masters, specifically and primarily the major shareholders; the Rockefellers and of course the wealthiest and most powerful dynasty of them all, the Rothschilds.

This BS won't stop until we cut off their funds....

We have to Audit the End the Fed.

Done

I sent my comments on their website, and to my representative, and forwarded the call to others by email.

After the B-6 outrage, this is over the top. It's bad dystopian fiction come to life: They ban B-6, ban P5P, then genetically engineer natural forms out of staple crops. Maybe even genetically engineer into staple crops some B-6 antagonists.

Next thing you know, everyone on earth has to get a prescription for BioSinister-MediSlave's pills in order to survive.

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

All of this, and most

other stuff the FDA is doing about wholesome foods (walnuts,almonds, vitamins, supplements, ad nauseum) was from a bill giving the FDA huge power, essentially calling supplements and foods drugs and being subject to the same tests and regulations. This bill was sponsored by Senator Enzi of Wyoming and Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts (now deceased). However, Enzi is still a senator, and would love to hear from you all. :) He is my senator and I wrote him many times, as did thousands of others, and all the senators when this bill was being voted on. Only one voted against it despite the huge amount of people writing against it. Enzi heard so much from me, he stopped writing at the end of his replies, "I look forward to hearing from you again" I checked into his financial stuff online and found out that he has received hundreds of thousands from big pharma. who woulda thot?

We all wish....

... we could do that but orthodox farming methods do nothing but deplete the soil of nutrients. If they had been farming using companion crops to help groups of crops help each other grow as well as fight off diseases etc, we'd all have a much more healthful organic produce section in the supermarket. Look up PERMACULTURE to see how farmers SHOULD have been farming all along.

Nature knows best. All you need to do is go walk in the woods or forest. Then ask yourself how can there be so many trees and plants of so many different kinds all growing together WITHOUT needing any chemical fertilizers or pest control sprays OR EVEN WATERING for that matter? The answer is permaculture or food forests.

I think we should BAN THE FDA!!!!!

Sorry, but I find it hard to

Sorry, but I find it hard to believe our food provides enough nutrition (particularly B vitamins) to combat the ongoing environmental and oxidative stress our bodies deal with daily. My son takes P5P supplements to help his immune system fight Lyme disease. All our bodies are being assaulted by a less-nutritious food supply full of genetically modified proteins, lack of exercise, toxic cleaning products, pesticides, and more. You may not feel ill right now but the chance of developing chronic illness, cancer, heart disease, etc. before age 50 is high -- all because your body is too busy just trying to survive to actually fight off illness. If these pharma companies are able to do this, what will stop others from taking ownership of, say, vitamin C? Sounds nuts, but a precedent could be set.

Let me be the first

Let me be the first to take the default liberty position, just in case we've forgotten... we need to defend everyone's right to sell and use whatever products they want, regardless of whether we believe all the vitamins you need are absorbed from your diet.

And btw, there is no such thing as "big nutrition", because you can't patent food or vitamins.

Just eat a well balanced diet...

and stick it to "big pharma" and "big supplement" which is getting equally as obnoxious.

Why is the average age of MD 56 years old?

Eat a balanced diet is the MD's advice.

Can you prove that a balanced diet contains the essential vitamins and minerals?

Free includes debt-free!

The power diet, see the story of Dr. Terry Wahls

Because what most MD's call a balance diet is nothing close to a healthy diet. For an example of the power of diet, see the story of Dr. Terry Wahls

Because Orthodox doctors study nothing about health in medical..

...school. They figured out a long time ago that there was no money in RESTORING VIBRANT HEALTH so all they teach in medical school is what is most lucrative. It is called Allopathic medicine and all it does is train doctors to use drugs and surgeries to cover-up symptoms to help the patient "live with the disease".

Those of us that know better know that doctors who specialize in Naturopathic Medicine actually are trained to determine causes of disease and then are taught how to eliminate the cause so the disease goes away and the patient's health is fully restored. This might take only a few months to a year of strengthening the body and addressing the specific underlying cause to do.

The good news is that Naturopathic Doctors N.D.s or N.M.D.s are trained
to help people get their health back and not have to stay on Rx all their lives the way they would if they limited their care strictly to an M.D.

Thank you

I have basically given up on allopathic doctors. If I break a limb, sure, I'll head to the emergency room and get some fluoride-laced medications to help me cope. But for routine stuff? I use Jin Shin Jyutsu and ETF, then consult a naturopath. Glad to hear there are like-minded others out there; hopefully we can stick together in the coming months.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

they're just trying to get the exclusive on the best form of B-6

Seven forms of this vitamin are known:

* PyriDOXINE (PN), the form that is MOST COMMONLY GIVEN as vitamin B6 SUPPLEMENT

Pyridoxine 5'-phosphate (PNP)

Pyridoxal (PL)

*Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate ( PLP ), the metabolically active form (SOLD AS 'P-5-P' VITAMIN SUPPLEMENT - Jarrow B Right brand has this, fyi)

*PyriDOXAMINE (PM)

*Pyridoxamine 5'-phosphate (PMP)

4-Pyridoxic acid

Here's why this story is important in my opinion.........Pyridoxamine differs from Pyridoxine by the substituent at the 4-position. The phenol at position 3 and aminomethyl group at position 4 of its ring endow Pyridoxamine with a variety of chemical properties, INCLUDING THE SCAVENGING OF FREE RADICAL SPECIES and carbonyl species formed in sugar and lipid degradation and CHELATION of METAL IONS that catalyze Amadori reactions - AS WELL AS FIGHTING DIABETES. which just happens to be a billion dollar business. Let thy food by thy medicine; Get your B6 straight from the source: Lima beans, Lentils, English Walnut,Banana,Sesame seeds,Sunflower seeds,Artichoke hearts,Sweet bell peppers, etc...

RP R3VOLution

Any credible sources?

or just another overreaction based on a few flimsy sources citing flimsy sources with broken links?

Well, that's a loaded question

I won't vouch for the credibility of the FDA, but MediSlave's petition which absurdly accuses a common food substance to be "adulterated" and thus illegal is posted on the FDA website:

http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=FDA-2007-P-0410-0002

The purpose of the law is to provide incentive for invention of novel new pharmaceuticals. If petitions to ban common dietary supplements are allowed to stand, it provides perverse incentive to hijack common, naturally occurring food items and sell them as monopolized "drugs."

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

as much as I hate big pharma and the FDA

You should get your vitamins from wholesome food.

Lots of times that is not the case with elderly people

They need supplements, even if they ate more than is possible. Most people that need the vitamin are elderly or pregnant females. If you ask me, they always go for the weakest first when they try to exterminate. They are trying to cull the population and get rich at the same time.
