    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Most EVERYTHING we buy comes with labels we can not trust, not "just" CBD oil.  

Example:  Corn.  Yes, the yellow kernels.  We dont know if these are GMO, loaded with pesticides or not.  The labels "dont have to tell us" if this is a genetically modified corn, because Monsanto and other huge companies have lobied FDA and has gotten the GRAS (Generally recognized as Safe) label to genetically modified corn and other stuff even when there are no studies to really show that its safe.

   Recently, the FDA has said that the ingredient in ROUNDUP is safe, while the courts have ruled quite the opposite, awarding millions to people where that stuff caused cancer.  

Agent Orange was a big scandal with VA.  The VA would not admit that AO was causing Vets problems for decades.  

And, what about JetGuns?  Those were "safe" and approved, right?  Ask Alex Graham about Jetguns and why they are not used anymore.  

Example 2:  Chickens  These are often filled with growth horemones, and often contaminated with e coli or other stuff.  

    The bottom line is the FDA is WEAK, corrupt, and  subject to influence by large chemical companies, and puts its "stamp" on just about anything, including hundreds of drugs which were approved by FDA then later banned, but only when it makes them money to do so.

The FDA is just a smaller, weaker, and more subject to outside influence branch just like VA.  Of course, both VA and FDA are corrupt.  

 

Bronco is dead on.  Parts or most of the government is very corrupt.  The system you see to keep you safe is there for the money.  There are so many more treatments the US outlaws, because it is too cheap to make and would hurt one of the big guys.  Or the treatment is too effective!  

I would rather hear from people who use a product regularly to see how it affects them and the benefits it has.  We also know the FDA will downplay or just not put warnings out on products if they can get away with it.

Here is a great example of a weak FDA, which caves in to the food lobby.  

Many years ago, Harvard researchers found out that hydrogenated oil, aka "trans fats" is absolutely horrible for your health and they estimated this oil kills 10,000 people per year.  So, did the FDA ban this stuf from foods?  

No.  The food companies lobbied FDA, complaining that removing trans fats "would cost the food companies too much money" even tho trans fats essentially clog up our veins and arteries leading to heart attacks and strokes.  This happens because "hydrogenating" oil makes it a solid at room temperature, while it would normally be a liquid.  

Finally, in 2018, "new" products banned hydrogenated oil, while food companies could continue poising Americans with trans fats so food companies could profit.

https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/news/multimedia-article/trans-fat-ban-fda/

It worked great.  Food companies could add hydrogenated oil, and it greatly increased "shelf life".  Frankly the stuff never spoiled, in part because bacteria are smarter than we are..they would not eat hydrogenated oil because it clogged their systems, too.  

So, food companies put it in Twinkies, margarine, potatoe chips, cookies and hundreds of other foods.  

When Harvard published this study proving hydrogenated oil is a slow acting poison, the food companies rebelled against its ban because it would cost them too much money to reformulate products without trans fats.  

Finally, last year, trans fats were banned by FDA in NEW products, but old products can still have this poison.  (That is, they cant create any new products with trans fats, but can keep selling us old products).

A few responsible companies removed trans fats in spite of FDA caving to the food industry, above our safety.  

Lays removed trans fats from potatoe chips about 10 years ago, as did Vortman cookies.  

Of course, the food companies resisted labeling which showed trans fats adversely affect our health.  So consumers were left in the dark by a corrupt FDA, taking bribes from food companies to allow continued use of this slow poison in our foods.  

Worse, a label can read "0 trans fats" EVEN when it has trans fats!!!  Why?  The food companies lobied to "round off the number" PER SERVINg.  

So, companies can continue to put trans fats in food, make a smaller "serving size on the label" and "round down" anything less than .5 gram per serving to 0.  By doing this, they can decieve consumers into thinking there is no trans fat in the product, while, in fact, its loaded with it.  You see, the company sets the "serving size".  So a "serving size" of a piece of pie can be a teaspoon full, which would contain a half gram of trans fats, which would round down to 0 grams, and the food company could label it "No trans fats", decieving the customer, but getting millions in kickbacks from food companies who could lie to us about trans fats by allowing this manipulation of the numbers.  This is all with FDA's blessings, and their pockets loaded with money.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
