U.S. Passes Most Restrictive Legislation Yet Against Health Freedom

The United States Senate has passed the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (S.510) yesterday by a vote of 73 to 25 demonstrating a clear mandate to destroy health freedom in America.

The House of Representatives approved a different version of the food safety bill in 2009; however, the bill’s sponsor Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) said the House has agreed to adopt the Senate version, bypassing the need for a conference to integrate the two bills. Once approved, the bill will move on to President Barack Obama for his signature.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will now have more power to police all food companies under the bill. It gives the FDA unprecedented powers to preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes.

The bill will now:

- end United States sovereignty over its own food supply by insisting on compliance with the WTO, thus threatening national security.

- allow the government, under Maritime Law, to define the introduction of any food into commerce (even direct sales between individuals) as smuggling into “the United States.”

- impose Codex Alimentarius on the US, a global system of control over food. It allows the United Nations (UN), World Health Organization (WHO), UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and the WTO to take control of every food on earth and remove access to natural food supplements.

- remove the right to clean, store and thus own seed in the US, putting control of seeds in the hands of Monsanto and other multinationals, threatening US security.

- allow the government to mandate antibiotics, hormones, slaughterhouse waste, pesticides and GMOs.

- use food crimes as the entry into police state power and control. The bill postpones defining all the regulations to be imposed; postpones defining crimes to be punished, postpones defining penalties to be applied.  It removes fundamental constitutional protections from all citizens in the country, making them subject to a corporate tribunal with unlimited power and penalties, and without judicial review. It is (similar to C-36 in Canada) the end of Rule of Law in the US.

Bill S. 510 essentially will strengthen all the forces that have led to the consolidation of the food supply in the hands of a few industrial food producers, while definitively harming small producers who give consumers the choice to buy fresh and health local foods.

Here are the names of the 73 US Senators who sold out the American public's right to grow and sell crops from their own gardens and farms without government oversight, regulation or permission.
