Was President Clinton Wrong?

Posted | 0 comments

  1. The president of the United States, in 1994 called the Drug Companies “Price Gougers” after a government study found that drug selling prices were on average marked up 800 fold from the costs of manufacturing. This is not price gouging, as President Clinton declared, but rather it is criminal, and all guilty parties should be incarcerated.

    The chart below speaks for itself.

  2. The drug industry has been trying for 100 years to get Congress to declare vitamins and minerals to be drugs. The drug industry has had super success marketing vitamins as drugs and therefore know that they work better than drugs. The drug industry is fully aware that there are hundreds of the world’s best medical researchers claiming that vitamins and minerals can terminate many diseases such as cancer, but responds by using its economic power to suppress these reports. This is well documented in Bob Barefoot’s new book “The Disease Conspiracy” about the FDA’s suppression of cures, where Bob provides hundreds of quotes from the world’s best medical researchers all claiming that diseases such as cancer can be cured. Also, Congress has decided to take action against FDA suppression of nutritional cures.

  3. Change is definitely occurring and we are slowly chipping away at the managed medical mountain. But, we are being endangered by thepending avalanche of legislation which is being sponsored by the giant multinational drug companies. Unfortunately, the crises is about to become even worse. In April 1996, Congress passed, and the President signed innate law, the Health Insurance Bill. The bill contained a rider from the World Health Organization Codex program that seeks to harmonize the governing and manufacture of health and medical products according to the standards set by the United Nations. The rider quietly passed. The Codex Commission Committee(90% of the Codex delegates represent giant multinational pharma-ceutical corporations, and who are concerned about the potential encroachment of vitamins and minerals into their marketplace) has proposed the following guidelines for dietary supplements:
    1. No dietary supplement can be sold for preventive use or therapeutic use.
    2. No dietary supplement sold as food can exceed the potency levels set by the commission.
    3. Codex regulations for dietary supplements would become binding.
    4. All new dietary supplements would automatically be banned unless they go through the Codex approval process.

  4. What this means is that, as of April 1997, the Food and Drug Administration has the authority to close down all health food stores and will require a medical doctor’s prescription for vitamins, herbs and other supplements. Thus the doctors with almost no nutritional education will be forced to participate as the drug companies eliminate their only competition, nutritional health, thereby maintaining the current trend in America of disease out of control. The result will belegislated disease. In Norway, where similar legislation was passed, the result has been the closure of over half of the health food stores with the remaining in jeopardy. The average American, 62% of whom have chosen alternative medicine (according to a recent televised poll by the Columbia Broadcasting System commonly referred to as the CBS), will soon wake up to find that their choice of nutritional products has been removed from the market. The war against disease will continue to be lost and the average American will suffer enormous physical and financial pain. This is “America’s wake up call.”
