“If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God.” It is similar to what India faced with imposition of the salt tax during British rule, only S 510 extends control over all food in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food." ~ Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower. :shock: :shock: :shock:

I see what people) decrying this law (when did it become law?) but I didn't see the law itself. What does the law itself say?

I just did and I didn't see it mentioning home grown anything- everything I saw relates to food distribution chains that import foods. I saw the word "import" in almost everything that had to do with requiring inspection. As to 'growing food' all I could find was the following, and it seems that on the basis of the law the raids talked about are illegal because:

"(Sec. 101) Amends the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) to expand the authority of the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to inspect records related to food, including to:
(1) allow the inspection of records of food that the Secretary reasonably believes is likely to be affected in a similar manner as an adulterated food; and
(2) require that each person (excluding farms and restaurants) who manufactures, processes, packs, distributes, receives, holds, or imports an article of food permit inspection of his or her records if the Secretary believes that there is a reasonable probability that the use of or exposure to such food will cause serious adverse health consequences or death."

So it seems to me if you grow food you're a farm, and thus exempted of these raids. If indeed this is happening, it seems to be an abuse of power, and not enforcement of the law.
I think someone needs to take this to the supreme court on the basis of constitutionality, if the whole law wasn't included in this link, and if indeed this is what's happening.
