FDA Quietly Removed Access to Life or Death Hospital Equipment
Plus – a DIY Alternative…
Townsend Letter in June of 2014 describes a critical shortage of IV bags. “One of the great ironies is that while health authorities have called for curtailment of manufacturing by the compounding pharmacies, pharmaceutical companies have not been able to meet the drug and medical supply requirements of hospitals and clinics.
What the letter does not mention is that this situation may have begun to occur after the FDA banning the mass production of IV vitamin C (the pre-prepared bags) Firms Blocked from Mass Producing Vitamin C for IV.
What had happened just previous to this peculiar banning of an item critical in burn units and on the battle field as well?
There was a 60 minute story in New Zealand shortly before in which IV vitamin C “miraculously” cured swine flu in a man the hospital there was pushing to take off of life support, saying there was no way he could survive. Not only that, even as IV vitamin C was obviously curing the man, two hospitals he was in each tried to reduce or deny access to it –

Legally the government apparently wasn’t in a position to ban vitamin C outright, so, instead, the FDA just threw a ringer into access to the bags of IV-C – see: FDA Position on Intravenous Vitamin C Limits Access, But Does Not Render Vitamin C-IV Unlawful Legal Opinion by Emord and Associates.
After that, clinics and doctors had to go to compounding pharmacies for IV-C to put together the bags for them. (And the FDA halted trials of Vitamin C and Cancer).
What’s more, as the Townsend Letter also reports, since 2010 (after swine flu was proved easily curable by IV vitamin C in New Zealand and the FDA banned the mass production of the treatment), the pharmaceutical industry stopped producing injectable vitamins and minerals.
It was compounding pharmacies which took over producing them.
Then, a few stories appeared in the media about contamination in compounding pharmacies, and the FDA began to take control of them. It then began coming down on them.
“FDA is focusing on companies “that pose the greatest risk”—those that compound sterile injectable products …. ” [Vitamin C and minerals, not mentioned by name, are such items.]

“The Senate’s action is in response to a deadly outbreak of fungal meningitis caused by contaminated medicine distributed by the New England Compounding Center (NECC), a large and now defunct Massachusetts-based pharmacy.
“The culprit behind the outbreak was a high-dose injectable steroid used to treat inflammation and pain associated with conditions like herniated discs and certain types of arthritis. Most compounding pharmacies do not produce this type of medication. In fact, it is alleged that, in this instance, NECC was repacking and selling the existing medication — a crime in itself — and was not actually engaged in the practice of compounding.
“Incidentally, the FDA and local authorities were aware of dubious practices at NECC as early as 2006.
“The reason doctors turned to the NECC’s more expensive product instead of cheaper generic versions is that there was a national shortage of these drugs, due to increased FDA inspections of drug factories. While the inspections turned up few actual health threats, they caused a disruption in the supply chain and many healthcare providers had no choice but to use more expensive (and in the case of NECC, less reputable) alternatives.
“Thus, it appears that the FDA bears some culpability for the meningitis outbreak.” (Source)
There was no news that vitamin C cures polio; no news that vitamin C cured swine flu; no news that the FDA banned the mass production of IV vitamin C after it cured swine flu; no news that drug companies stopped producing injectable vitamin like vitamin C at about the same time as the FDA ban; no news that both the task of preparing the bags of IV vitamin C formula, and the task of creating injectable vitamin C and the other minerals in the formula had to be taken over by compounding pharmacies; and no news that the FDA had taken control of compounding pharmacies and was starting to go after them.
The only news was national news of contamination at the New England Compounding Center (NECC) but that was old news and used to push for a law allowing the FDA power over all compounding pharmacies. There was no investigation into the FDA’s actions against other compounding pharmacies or the impact of the law on small compounding pharmacies doing nothing wrong. Nor was there any story linking the FDA’s unexplained ban on the mass production of IV vitamin C solutions or its coming soon after IV vitamin C got international attention for curing swine flu in New Zealand or whether the FDA’s actions were destructive of public health in the midst of what the CDC was claiming was a terrible epidemic of potentially fatal swine flu.
Instead, without anyone noticing, and by many indirect means of banning production of the bags or shutting down those doing the production of the bags and the injectable vitamins and minerals, access to IV solutions for innumerable treatments for diseases, have gone into critical shortage.
And while the CDC keeps reporting antibiotics are failing and the extreme medical crisis that represents, it does not report that vitamin C is a powerful antibiotic, just as it continues to this day to not report vitamin C as a total cure for polio.
“Klenner described this seminal experience in a 1953 paper “The Use of Vitamin C as an Antibiotic”:“Our interest with vitamin C against the virus organism began ten years ago in a modest rural home. Here a patient who was receiving symptomatic treatment for virus pneumonia had suddenly developed cynosis [sic: cyanosis]. He refused hospitalization for supportive oxygen therapy. X-Ray had not been considered because of its dubious value and because the nearest department equipped to give such treatment was 69 miles distant. Two grams of vitamin C was given intramuscularly with the hope that the anaerobic condition existing in the tissues would be relieved by the catalytic action of vitamin C acting as a gas transport aiding cellular respiration. This was an old idea; the important factor being that it worked. Within 30 minutes after giving the drug (which was carried in my medical bag for the treatment of diarrhea in children) the characteristic breathing and slate-like color had cleared. Returning six hours later, at eight in the evening, the patient was found sitting over the edge of his bed enjoying a late dinner. Strangely enough his fever was three degrees less than it was at 2 p.m. that same afternoon. This sudden change in the condition of the patient led us to suspect that vitamin C was playing a role of far greater significance than that of a simple respiratory catalyst. A second injection of one gram of vitamin C was administered, by the same route, on this visit and then subsequently at six hour intervals for the next three days. This patient was clinically well after 36 hours of chemotherapy. From this casual observation we have been able to assemble sufficient clinical evidence to prove unequivocally that vitamin C is the antibiotic of choice in the handling of all types of virus diseases. Furthermore it is a major adjuvant in the treatment of all other infectious diseases.”Again this paper is quoted at length to allow readers to judge for themselves whether or not the author made this up or deluded himself in some way. From 1943 through 1947 Dr. Klenner reported successful treatment of 41 more cases of viral pneumonia using massive doses of vitamin C. From these cases he learned what dosage and route of administration — intravenously, intramuscularly, or orally — was best for each patient. Dr. Klenner gave these details in a February 1948 paper published in the Journal of Southern Medicine and Surgery entitled “Virus Pneumonia and Its Treatment with Vitamin C”. This article was the first of Dr. Klenner’s twenty-eight (through 1974) scientific publications.” (source)
But it isn’t just access to IV vitamin C that is threatened or numerous other therapies which use vitamins and minerals to restore the body, but HYDRATION ITSELF.
Something similar happened in 1918, when millions of deaths were blamed on a flu but were not from flu.
Currently, too, “flu” numbers are not based on flu and but are padded with pneumonia numbers and colds even, as the CDC puts out figures that create the image of a dangerous medical situation that is non-existent, but the fear is used to sell vaccines.
But day in and day out, dehydration causes death. The emphases are in the original.
“Dehydration can result in serious symptoms in an otherwise healthy person, causing profound fatigue, postural hypotension, renal failure, delirium, and ultimately death. (“To Hydrate or Not to Hydrate: How Should It Be?“, Journal of Clinical Oncology, Vol 18, Issue 5, March, 2000: 1156-1158.)“
For a more diverse view from another country, Robin L. Fainsinger, M.D., Director, Palliative Care Program, Division of Palliative Medicine, Department of Oncology, University of Alberta, writes in “When to Treat Dehydration in the Terminally Ill Patient?“:
Our palliative care group has argued that the viewpoint that dehydration in dying patients is never a cause of symptom distress, overlooks the fact that: – 1) dehydration is well recognized in nonterminal patients to cause confusion and restlessness, problems often reported in terminally ill patients; 2) reduced intravascular volume and glomerular filtration rate caused by dehydration is accepted as a cause for prerenal failure, with opioid metabolite accumulation in the presence of renal failure causing confusion, myoclonus and seizures, having been well documented (1, 2, 3).
Hydration is a very simple thing to provide, IF ONE HAS THE BASIC IV SOLUTIONS. Picture hospitals without those hanging bags of fluid and the the FDA’s active anti-health contribution to what is in fact an extremely dangerous situation becomes clear.
The editor of the Townsend Letter reports that:
“By mid-February 2014, Baxter and Hospira were rationing shipments of IV bags only to hospitals. While the original shortage was for 1000 ml bags of normal saline, the shortage extended to all IV solutions, including 0.9% saline, 0.45% saline, 5% dextrose, and Lactate Ringer’s solutions. As of April 2014, it was impossible to purchase any form of IV solution. Hospitals and clinics are improvising by treating dehydration using one IV bag of solution for 72 hours instead of the typical 24-hour drip. In addition, patients are being switched from IV hydration to oral hydration. Critical situations treated in the OR and ICU are also cutting back on IV hydration. It is clear that hospitals are trying to make do by limiting their IV solutions, but at what point will they run out and face tragedy?
The public and those sincerely committed to healthcare need to know what the FDA has been doing to ban the production of essential IV solutions and to shut down compounding pharmacies that provide crucially important injectable vitamins and minerals and the CDC has been lying about flus (including 1918) and silent both about available virus cures and about one strong antibiotic.
People need to know that the FDA is threatening people’s lives by removing access to innumerable treatments that rely on vitamins and minerals (not drugs). And they need to stop the FDA because it is now threatening the foundation of medical care itself by its systematic removal of one of the most basic forms of support for any patients in crises – fluids.
How people can rehydrate quickly at home.
