That's right... we got to protect u people against vitamins... now made by Al CIA duh!... We could not expect you to protect yourself!

A,D,E and K are fat soluble, in other words they build up in your body if you take too much.

The rest are water soluble, take too much you just pee it out.

As far as I'm concerned they could pull all of that snake oil off the shelves, the most anyone needs is a single multivitamin daily.

You may feel better when taking handfuls of vitamins, but it is only a placebo effect.

Both pill industries are bad, not just big pharma.

We are moving backward as a nation. They find drugs that work and bann them then ppl find if they stay healthy with vitamins and exersize they bann the vitamins. So would it be safe to say they want everyone sick to suck all the cash out of ppl. They need to add more checks n balances in the gov thats only purpose is finding who in gov is taking payments from corp or individuals and nail there balls to the wall ( with extortion or bribery charges )

After struggling for years to find help for my sons debilitating migraines (and sometimes seizure associated with migraine) I finally found magnesium and a B-complex to be a cure. The docs wanted to put him on depakote and then all sorts of physical therapies to counteract the effects the depakote would have on him. F THAT!
So finding a harmless natural cure was what I did. This is really worrying. I don't know if I should go nuts and stock up on his stuff or what. Ugh.

Just want to say that your grandchildren are lucky that they have such an informed Grandma to watch over them. A lot of parents these days are through no fault of their own tricked by doctors whom hey trust to giving their kids all kinds of injections that have lord knows what in them.

You answered your question. They go after the vitamins because they are wonderful, they work, they keep people healthy and prevent illness! The government and big pharm don't want that to happen.

I had very bad migraines from age 12 to 15, low potasium diet was ordered and they slowly went away.

Since I like bananas I never really stuck to it, they went away all by themselves.

Fast forward to my sisters boys, both had migraines that went away when puberty ended.

Not saying your cure didn't work, it might have, but kids do outgrow migraines.

It could just be coincidence that they stopped after the new therapy.

Hey here's an idea -- how bout reading the bill???? I know not as much fun as lighting your hair on fire but certainly more enlightening.

Basically it says that manufacturers have to list the ingredients on the label -- a lot like they do with Twinkies.

It hasn't really affected the Twinkie industry. I remember this same hysteria when manufactures were directed to put nutrition and content information on the labels.

If you are selling vitamin D fine that's what goes on the label -- if you are selling snake oil - you have so show it is water vinegar and glycerin.

What bothers me most about the FDA making arbitrary rules, is that the people who run it are not elected to their posts and are thus unaccountable to "We the People". The FDA and most other administrative posts are run by select corporate insiders with an agenda. This system needs to change or we are all screwed. Laws that have a direct effect on the people need to be created and passed in Congress, not simply handed down from some unelected corporate-run department. It's time to shut down the FDA.

Unfortunately this is extremely real --- in May of this year what is known as the Traditional Herbal Medicinal Product Directive went into law in the European Union. This basically removed all Traditional Chinese Medicines, Indian Ayurvedic Medicines, a wide range of plant remedies, etc. - from store shelves in Europe (EU). All can apply for the Traditional Herbal Registration - but it is unbelievably expensive - starting at 40k English Sterling for a product with just one medicinal plant ingredient (like St. John's Wart). So far about 210-220 or so companies have applied for the THR (registration) and about 105 products (must submit application for each) have been approved.

Right when this came into law, both the FTC and the FDA cracked down pretty hard on a lot of products in the United States that were making any kind of medical claims (but were not medicines) - still ongoing and lots of them to be sure. Had to be done in a sense, but not very much of window for companies to comply. Although should've been compliant to begin with...

So the vitamin supplements are next. It's not going to take "Everything off the shelves" - but it is going to put a lot of the smaller and medium-sized companies out of business or force them to seriously scale back their operations.

That's the Obama Job Plan - Kill small business - make the Too Big's too fail so g* D'mned Big you'll have to make room in your bed for them to sleep. Good idea to have a couch ready.

This is more serious than we can imagine. And the "Trolls for Fraud Club" should watch this video.

Also, it is more like 1,000,000 people a year die from prescription contra-indications and combinations.

Cigarettes are fine though, vitamins are the problem. Why?...The FDA is the Pharms, and the Pharms like Cigarettes as they cause Cancer hence increasing Profit from Chemotherapy, but they don't like Vitamins as they reduce Cancers and hence reduce profits. That's what's going on, it's nothing to do with protecting us, it's the opposite, they want us sick to increase profits. They make money when we get sick. That's why they inject us with disease when we are born and througout our lives

The GMO fruit and veg has been engineered such that it doesn't have many vitamins and minerals. Not everyone will be able to afford Organic

To all the people there in the USA if you live close to Canada maybe you can just do a day trip and pick some up?
If other countries start yapping about banning vitamins then we are all doomed to die early.
I too need a daily supplement to help with my complicated medical situation here.
If they try that here well then I have no choice but to die or take the gloves off.
The gloves will come off all right because I have nothing to lose here.
To the OP S&F and scary but good information all wrapped up nice in a great post.
