Congress marries Fedgov to Big Pharma

With a vote of 403-16, Congress passed HR 2900—the Reagan-Udall bill. Bill proponents claim that the new law will empower the FDA to better protect consumers from dangerous drugs. Bill opponents, which were not allowed to speak and include presidential candidate Ron Paul (R-Texas), believe the bill will authorize the FDA to administratively ban high potency vitamins and dietary supplements without legitimate cause.

HR 2900 creates and funds the Reagan Udall Foundation which, essentially, turns the FDA into a pharmaceutical company authorized to patent and license its own drugs. This will give the FDA the biggest incentive it’s ever had to ban or restrict public access to safe dietary supplements to enhance its now "legitimate" marketplace expectations. The bill effectively marries the federal government to the pharmaceutical industry.

John Hammell of International Advocates for Health Freedom ( has been on the frontlines of the concerted government and pharmaceutical industry assault on health freedom for 20 years. He predicts that the move is calculated to coincide with the plan to merge the U.S., Canada and Mexico into the North American Union (NAU) which will adopt Codex Alimentarius—a comprehensive food and beverage regulatory scheme.

It is expected that NAU legislation to be introduced during the fall, 2007 legislative session. Hammell believes that access to vitamins and supplements will be dramatically curtailed soon thereafter.

Most Americans are unaware that the plan to merge the three countries is so far along and their D.C. reps are not telling them about it. Hammell suggests that people read Jerome Corsi’s book "The Late Great USA" available through WorldNet and read the minutes of the Security and Prosperity Partnership meeting in Ottowa, Canada Feb. 3, 2007 at
