F.D.A. Issues Warning on Workout Supplement


With names like Jack3d and OxyElite Pro, the popular products contain a stimulant known as dimethylamylamine, or DMAA for short. In a public warning late Thursday, the Food and Drug Administration said that the stimulant did not qualify as a legal dietary supplement ingredient and that it could raise blood pressure, potentially causing heart attacks and other health problems.

FDA Proposes Limit for Arsenic in Apple Juice


Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration proposed to limit the amount of inorganic arsenic in apple juice to 10 parts per billion. For reference, 10 parts per billion is the same arsenic “action level” set for drinking water by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

When will the USDA join the corruption ranks of the CDC and the FDA?


Most people grow up using at least a handful of prescribed pharmaceuticals, trusting doctors and believing what the FDA reports as safe and in the best interests of the country. Not too many people have read the truth about how the FDA, the AMA and the CDC are all in bed together, conning Western world believers that they can eat whatever they want to and when the body malfunctions, they can invent a pill, a vaccine, or a surgical procedure to fix you, or at least prolong the agony of your eventual aging and total system failure when you "get old." Right now, millions of smart consumers, who actually research what they consider eating and drinking and putting on their skin, these informed health enthusiasts trust the USDA and USDA's "organic certification" of food. But the USDA, the United States Department of Agriculture, has some sweeping control over all kinds of inspections, and lack of inspections, and falsified inspections, for meat, vegetables, and yes, organic certification.

World's largest pork producer ditches Big Pharma's chemical feed additive, angering drug-pushing FDA


A significant percentage of the U.S. pork supply could soon get a little bit healthier, thanks to a recent game-changing policy shift by the world's largest pork producer and processor. Reports indicate that Smithfield Foods is gradually ditching the use of a controversial animal feed additive known as ractopamine, which triggers high production of lean meat in pigs. But the decision, which is apparently in preparation for a buyout by a major Chinese counterpart, has prompted the drug-pushing U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to come out in defense of the dangerous additive.

New science confirms raw milk is remarkably safe


All of those antiquated government talking points about the alleged dangers of drinking raw milk have once again been debunked, this time by a series of scientific risk assessments recently published in the Journal of Food Protection. A press release published in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) explains that, based on the results of three new quantitative microbial risk assessments (QMRAs), as well as the review of dozens of other scholarly papers on the subject, raw milk is very clearly a low-risk food that is generally safe for everyone, including pregnant women and young children.

Congressional Committee to FDA: Listen to ANH-USA and the Supplement Community!


The House Agriculture Appropriations Committee has released a report that, among other things, chastises the FDA for stalling on the second draft of their New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) guidance. The committee directed the FDA to end this “regulatory uncertainty,” issue a timeline for the NDI guidance, and include stakeholders in the process.

Will FDA’s “Grandfathered” Ingredients Rule Mean No More Real Vitamin E?

A second meeting between FDA and “stakeholders”—mostly trade groups, with ANH-USA once again the only grassroots consumer group present—took place on October 16.
