FDA, IRS, FBI: 80 Armed Agents Raid Health Supplement Firm in Oregon

Unlike the FDA Raid, this picture is not exxagerated.

A band of 80 federal agents stormed Maxam Nutraceutics of Hood River, Oregon last week in what seems to be  an unnecessary and outrageous abuse of power.

Jim Cole, Founder and CEO of Maxam said he cooperated with every demand that the FDA made of him, and was convinced that all was well. But apparently the FDA had different ideas when out of nowhere, the agency, along with the IRS and the FBI, sent as many as 80 armed, SWAT-style agents to both Maxam headquarters, the company’s “Big Gym” training center, and even Jim’s daughter’s house, to confiscate all the products, company documents, and even personal files and computers.

“They took all our products, all our paperwork, all our files — we’ve been doing this since 1992 and they pulled everything,” said Jim. “They brought in three big moving vans, they had their guns on, their bullet-proof vests — they came prepared for war.”

You can see that the FDA letter treats Maxam health supplement products as drugs. The point I want to make is that Fluoride is a Drug by FDA definition. It is delivered to customers through their water supply without dosing instructions or without any medical evaluation or periodic monitoring whatsoever–to the extent CDC has reported 41% of children are overdosed and have dental fluorosis. The practice of water fluoridation is NOT FDA-approved and is unethical in that consumers are not informed and warned as to the side effects. Why does FDA allow fluoridation of water supplies, but when folks like Jim Cole, providing helpful products to people asking for health supplements, get busted with such brute force? –Augie
