Congressional Oversight Needed to STOP FDA's "Trilateral Cooperation Charter"
The FDA is engaged in conferencing with Canada & Mexico for the purpose of creating one "harmonized" set of food & drug regulations for all 3 nations with zero INPUT from the PEOPLE of Canada, the USA, or Mexico. See http://www.fda.gov/oia/charter.html
On what legal AUTHORITY does the FDA presume to take this action?
What they're doing clearly violates the Administrative Procedures Act, the Federal Advisory Committee Act, as well as other laws, and Congressional Oversight is needed to immediately rein them in!!!
This is clearly part of a planned effort to have America join a North American Union with Canada & Mexico patterned after the EU (where many nutritional supplements, for instance, can only be accessed through a doctor's prescription). It's being scripted by the Council on Foreign Relations: http://www.cfr.org/publication/8102/building_a_north_american_community.html
Which is what prompted the Neocons to create the (so called) "Security & Prosperity Partnership of North America" http://www.spp.gov/
In their "SCOPE" section http://www.fda.gov/oia/charter.html#purpose FDA says their main purpose is to focus on what they call "HEALTH FRAUD"
We all know how the FDA INTERPRETS "health fraud". Take their current ban against cherry growers http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2006/mar2006_cover_cherries_01.htm
FDA is ordering Cherry growers not to repeat the story that eating foods high in plant nutrients may protect against some types of cancer and strokes (despite recommendations of the Surgeon General and the National Research Council).
The alleged criminal acts had occurred on Ocean Spray's website. Normally, the FDA has no authority over websites, but the company had put its website address on its products, and the agency does have authority over labels.
What about pharmaceutical drugs that harm, to say the least, thousands of people on a daily basis, and yet, they are still readily available without a prescription?
Incredibly, now the FDA is attempting to extend this tyranny to Canada & Mexico, while simultaneously they'll attempt to impose the WORST ASPECTS of those countries regulations on AMERICANS.
For example: Canada regulates dietary supplements as "drugs", but in the USA, under the Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act of 1994, these products are FOODS, and Americans enjoy far greater ACCESS to these products and to health information about them than Canadians do.
The last thing Americans need is the FDA unilaterally making decisions in the way that they are via the "Trilateral Cooperation Charter" without any input from Congress or the American people. Ostensibly, they would have us believe that this is all about providing us with "increased security".
WHO'S BUYING IT?!
The LAW is NOT "in the FDA's Mouth". Americans are entitled to demand that Congress protect consumers in general and all those concerned about their health freedom from the FDA by holding oversight hearings about this.
In 1994 the American people flooded congress with more letters, phone calls and personal visits than ever received in the HISTORY of congress when the Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act was passed into law. Now the FDA is attempting, "for a change", to UNDERMINE THE LAW by getting around the will of the American people.
People are already communicating with both their Senators & Congressmen regarding this matter. Even though it's no secret mainstream news outlets hardly ever report this, local papers, friends and family nationwide are being alerted as well.
