Clamping Down on Nutritional Information

Freedom of choice is not only being squeezed here, but beginning in the Netherlands, the entire European Union tightening. Here are the opening lines of an Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, April 6, 2013 that demonstrates and comments on just that!

“In Europe, You'd Better Watch What You Say about Supplements
Commentary by Gert Schuitemaker, PhD (Netherlands) and Andrew W. Saul (USA)
(OMNS Apr 6, 2013) The government of the Netherlands, one of 27 European Union countries, continues to clamp down on alternative medicine. The Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA, http://www.vwa.nl/english) has the tools in place to restrict communication of information about the beneficial effects of food and nutrients to promote health and effectively curb disease. And, most importantly, this bureaucracy makes all decisions as to how strict the rules are applied.
Netherlands law is backed up and strictly enforced by new EU rules based on very rigid codes regarding health claims for foods and dietary supplements. The power is held by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). These regulations are now in force in every European Union country.
The Noose Tightens
When we go back in history, we see that already in 1958 the Dutch Medicine Laws defined all substances in nature as medicines, if they were in any way presented as suitable for curing or preventing a disease. So once a common beet, or vitamin C, was associated with a preventive medicinal effect, it legally became a drug. This was the start of censorship and control, and has been buttressed by subsequent European regulations. Slowly but relentlessly, since 1958, all substances in nature are being brought into the realm of medical care. ... “

Live doctors will lie to keep you sick and dependent on state provided care. ChaChing!

Won't be long before internet

Won't be long before internet censorship laws are used against blogs and sites that do not toe the USDA/FDA line.

Food sovereignty == Self sovereignty.

It's already here, too.

The American Dietetic Association is trying to dictate who can give nutritional advice.
Among their corporate sponsors: Coca Cola, Pepsi, Kelloggs...

There is a whole branch of nutrition based on traditional nutrient dense whole food, which is largely based on the research of Weston A. Price, DDS, and Frances M. Pottenger, MD. They are trying to silence those who teach this.

Coming to a legislature near you, (or maybe already has, and you didn't realize it.)

The bigger picture here is, (surprise!) the UN, WHO, Codex Alimentarius.

This is the Agenda 21 of food & health.

also,, shocked me

Public Library Censors Nutritional Research
Most medical journals are easy to access on the internet through a huge electronic database known as Medline or PubMed. (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez or www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed) This service is brought to you by the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. In other words, by your tax dollars. Generally it is money well spent, until you go searching for high-dose vitamin therapy research papers. Then you will find that you can't find a lot of them. The reason is selective indexing.
"Selective indexing" is a nice name for censorship. After over 40 consecutive years of publication, the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine is still not indexed by Medline. The Journal has just been censored, again, after its most recent application. This marks the sixth time since 1989 that JOM has been rejected for Medline indexing. The decision is made by a review committee privately preselected by NLM. There are no hearings. No public input is allowed.

what are tghey scared of???

Thank you

Thank you for providing this information. We live in a time of such freedom of information that I truly hope many will see the warning signs and take advantage of our opportunity to record and save vital information about substances/plants/nutrients before it's only access is through the dark webs or unofficial channels.
