Passing the law is one thing - actually using the deceptive wording to restrict supplements on a nationwide scale in a short period of time is quite another.
While the new law does give the FDA new ammunition, they and their Big Pharma controllers still remember, and are still smarting from, the backlash that turned into DSHEA when they tried a large scale move in the past.
Just because a law is passed does not mean that it is in its entirety constitutional. As a matter of fact, much of what the government does in general, and the FDA does routinely, is patently unconstitutional and can be challenged on those grounds.
Somewhere along the way - about the mid 1850's - the United States ceased to be operated as a country of the people and of the sovereign states and began to be operated as a corporation for the entire body of people and entire collection of states. Constitutionally, the Federal Government holds power only in a ten square mile area (and in our non-state territories) and depends on the rights specifically granted by the people in the rest of the country.
More and more, the federal government has taken than to mean whatever rights it can take without sufficient objections being made to prevent or overrule it, but that is not how the constitution nor declaration of independence read.
One of these days, they may just step to far and create a backlash that ends up with a Ron Paul type forcing us to return to the kind of government and system our forefathers intended: where in the matters of sovereign unalienable individual rights, local jurisdiction, state independence and sovereignty and finally, federal authority - it is the federal authority that is LEAST!
As it is, the FDA best not be too heady. Congressman Paul is standing by with a bill that goes way beyond DSHEA in assuring our continued access to supplements.
I'm hoping they ultimately screw up royally and cause an outcry so that the bill gets implemented. In reality, for the meanwhile I do not foresee any wide-scale sudden loss of access to supplements.
Making a list is still a good and worthwhile project. I will probably even have my two cents worth to add. Maybe even a nickels worth.
