I got this info from Dr. Whitaker’s Health & Healingnewsletter. Earlier this year, the FDA banned nutritional supplements containing pyridoxine, a natural form of vitamin B6. They did this in response to a petition by a pharmaceutical company that is trying to get a pyridoxine-based drug approved as a treatment for kidney disease. The FDA predicated this decision on the fact that pyridoxine was being investigated as a drug before it was sold as a supplement. Are you kidding me? Pyridoxine is a highly bioactive form of vitamin B6 that occurs naturally in food, and it’s been used for years as a supplement to treat not only kidney disease but also heart probs, diabetic complications, memory loss, and other degenerative disorders. Why has the FDA banned this safe, inexpensive, over-the-counter supplement?  You can draw your own conclusions, but, as for me, I think that there is a bad marriage between the FDA and pharmacopia. Let’s speak out against this. Contact the White House Office of Health Reform and speak out. For contact info, visit whitakerhealthfreedom.com. Help keep the drug pushers at bay.

Stay well, John R Blilie, M.S.
