FDA Approves New Test for Hepatitis C

Abbott just announced that it has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to market its RealTime PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test for measuring the viral load of hepatitis C (HCV), the leading cause of liver cancer in the United States.

FDA Approves Vertex's Hep C Drug

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (TheStreet) --U.S. regulators on Monday approved Incivek, a new hepatitis C drug from Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX).

And now, Vertex's executives and employees can breathe a sigh of relief and get to work marketing Incivek against its main hepatitis C rival Merck.

Not that Incivek's U.S. approval was ever in doubt, but the level of anxiety at Vertex must have been a tad high given that Merck received U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for its Hep C drug Victrelis on May 13, followed by a recommendation for European approval last Friday.

Zero Deaths from Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids or Herbs

Poison Control Statistics Prove Supplements' Safety Yet Again

(OMNS Jan 5, 2011) There was not even one death caused by a dietary supplement in 2009, according to the most recent information collected by the U.S. National Poison Data System.

The new 200-page annual report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers, published in the journal Clinical Toxicology, shows zero deaths from multiple vitamins; zero deaths from any of the B vitamins; zero deaths from vitamins A, C, D, or E; and zero deaths from any other vitamin.

Additionally, there were no deaths whatsoever from any amino acid, herb, or dietary mineral supplement. 

Two people died from non-nutritional mineral poisoning, one from a sodium salt and one from an iron salt or iron. On page 1139, the AAPCC report specifically indicates that the iron fatality was not from a nutritional supplement. One other person is alleged to have died from an "Unknown Dietary Supplement or Homeopathic Agent." This claim remains speculative, as no verification information was provided.

60 poison centers provide coast-to-coast data for the U.S. National Poison Data System, "one of the few real-time national surveillance systems in existence, providing a model public health surveillance system for all types of exposures, public health event identification, resilience response and situational awareness tracking."

Over half of the U.S. population takes daily nutritional supplements. Even if each of those people took only one single tablet daily, that makes 155,000,000 individual doses per day, for a total of nearly 57 billion doses annually. Since many persons take more than just one vitamin or mineral tablet, actual consumption is considerably higher, and the safety of nutritional supplements is all the more remarkable.

If nutritional supplements are allegedly so "dangerous," as the FDA and news media so often claim,
then
where are the bodies?

Vitamin C & The Rise of Tyranny

Not content to kill 100,000 Americans each year with deadly Big Pharma drugs while censoring the truth about the healing effects of herbs, nutritional supplements and natural medicines, the FDA has now set out to deny Americans access to yet another lifesaving medicine known simply as vitamin C.

Save Local Food & Supplements From Congress - They VOTE TODAY!

Email or Call your Senators and ask them to oppose S.510--the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act.
(To view the bill and it's status, go to www.thomas.loc.gov and enter the title in the search field).

 

It now approaches its final hurdle before being voted on by the full Senate - an effort by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) to stop debate on S. 510 by invoking cloture (a motion which requires a three-fifths majority of the full Senate [60 votes] to pass).


The best chance to defeat S. 510 is to defeat the cloture and prevent a vote.

Email your Senators now and urge them to oppose cloture for S. 510, and feel free to edit the letter provided so that lawmakers receive a variety of emails.
