With all the dangerous pharmaceuticals on the market that have side effects that cause hundreds of thousands of deaths every year, you would think the regulatory agency would be out there getting those drugs off the market and shutting down the manufacturers. But instead, they’re going after food producers that claim scientifically proven health benefits.
Now they’re going after a Diamond Walnuts for making verified health statements on their packaging. According to the FDA, if it’s good for you, then it must be a drug. And if it is a drug, then it must be relabelled as such. In other words; Diamond Walnuts must either stop telling the truth about the health benefits of their product, or pay millions to the agency in order to have it approved as drug!
Here’s an excerpt from the letter the company received from the FDA:
“Your walnut products are drugs…new drugs.
“they may not legally be marketed [in the United States] without an approved new drug application.”
“We have determined that your walnut products are promoted for conditions that cause them to be drugs because these products are intended for use in prevention, mitigation and treatment of disease.”
Yes, the world has gone crazy, folks… Actually has been for a while, it’s just getting worse..
Such behavior is nothing new for the rogue agency that spends all of its time ridding the market of natural products, legitimate health claims on food, and other important products and information that actually help people become healthy rather than remain disease-stricken pharmaceutical drug addicts. In the case of walnuts, though, the vast amount of studies concerning the numerous benefits of the nut makes the FDA’s mission to stop all purveyance of this information utterly incomprehensible.
Walnuts are a rich source of alpha-linolenic acid, a plant form of the omega-3 fatty acid that has been scientifically proven to help protect the heart and lower cholesterol. Countless studies have shown that walnuts not only help to reduce bad cholesterol but also actually work to raise good cholesterol, all while reducing inflammation and decreasing blood pressure.
Walnuts are also rich in fiber and antioxidants. AARP Magazine ranked walnuts in its top ten list of the most powerful disease-fighting foods. Some Asian cultures actually refer to walnuts as “brain food”, and it is commonly understood that eating a handful of walnuts improves brain function.
The FDA does not care about the truth, though. The agency deems any health claim made in reference to food a violation of the rules it has decreed. The FDA only allows health claims to be made for drugs that have gone through its multi-million dollar approval process. The agency has stated that simply making a health claim for a food or nutrient deems that food or nutrient an unapproved drug that must either be removed from the market or relabeled.
This is exactly what I’ve been warning people about when I talk about how the UN’s Codex Alimentarius protocols are being implemented in the U.S., handing over the control of our health and nutrition to Big Pharma and Big Agro. They aim to reclassify nutrients as toxins, reduce nutritional standards and promote the consumption of unhealthy foods and drugs in order to fill corporate coffers and further the globalist’s agenda of population reduction.
They go after the manufacturers of foods that actually do have health benefits while they allow major corporations like Frito-Lay, General Mills and processed foods manufacturers to get away with making fictional or misleading health claims, based on junk science. All of a sudden, that sugar-laden breakfast cereal, fortified with iron filings (oh yeah… check THIS out) is now “Heart Healthy” and slap the words “All Natural” on those potato chips with some vague health references and you’re good to go. But if you produce a food product that actually is good for you, get ready for a battle.
The FDA is so infiltrated with corporate interest, to call it a consumer protection agency is a killing joke. I’ve been watching the miasma of food ”safety” bills that have been circulating through Congress over the last couple of years and a lot of our elected representatives (backed by special interest groups and lobbyists – oh… there’s no end to the lobbyists!) who want to either make the FDA even MORE powerful, or build a completely new agency to replace or augment the FDA.
The FDA is an out-of-control, tyrannical agency that does the very opposite of what it was designed to do. It is lunacy for anyone to suggest that the agency needs even more power to do its job. The FDA has demonstrated itself to be a corrupt and utterly shameful mob of power-hungry, drug-pushing criminals. The American people need to disband this cabal of crooks and rebuild a real regulatory agency that protects the people from dangerous pharmaceutical drugs and that protects free speech and the free flow of health information.
