    Thumbs down Health Canada - out of control

    Before you say something stupid, this N.D. is supplying clinics and other N.D.'s with products that those N.D.'s are prescribing to their patients. Be aware that any of these products can be bought in any Health Food store in the U.S. and have a proven safety record.

    To me this seems like a violation of human rights and the RCMP's approach was total overkill.

    In the meantime the pharmaceutical companies are killing thousands each year and nobody gives a crap. Something fundamentally wrong with that. http://news.aol.ca/article/cut-ties-...-urges/603062/

    The other funny part is how everybody cares what the Canucks game score is but when it comes to real issues they are sheeple.

    Before you start using the label "sheeple", I'd be interested in your view on Gun Control.

    Who has a half hour to listen to monotonous ramblings about everything that happened during a search warrant?

    He comes off as slow and naive but it sounds like he's been in the business long enough to know exactly what might have been coming. I have a certain understanding of what he might be trying to do for people and can sympathize with the issue to a certain extent but not really with this guy.

    Vancouver, BC -- The biggest steroid smuggling case ever in Canada began when a Canada Customs agent at the Pacific Highway crossing in Surrey, B.C., grew suspicious of a seemingly innocent notation on an invoice.

    In a small provincial courtroom in Surrey this week, Madam Justice Jean Lytwyn sentenced the importer of those drugs, Eldon Garth Dahl, to 18 months of house arrest and fined him and his company $350,000.

    The 48-year-old businessman who lives in Langley, just outside Vancouver, could easily afford it. Over the past four years, Mr. Dahl sold more than $640,000 worth of steroids as he built his health-food wholesale company into a thriving business.

    Among the steroids imported by Mr. Dahl, was androstenedione, the drug used by baseball player Mark McGwire when he set a home-run record in 1998. Androstenedione, androstenediol and prasterone, or DHEA, all of which were smuggled in by Mr. Dahl, are legally available south of the border but banned in Canada.

    "The products . . . were marketed as health supplements that would increase sports performance and optimize the health of those who used them," Ms. Hyman said in a sentencing submission.

    "In most cases, they were marketed as alternatives to steroids and with minimal or no warning labels as to potential dangers and side effects."


    Ms. Hyman said the specific side effects include liver tumours, heart disease, sexual dysfunction, acne, immune system suppression and increased aggressive behaviour.

    The Crown prosecutor also told the court that there is growing evidence that anabolic steroids can become addictive. She expressed concern about the way Mr. Dahl's company was packaging steroids as health supplements, saying people could have been misled into thinking they weren't dangerous.

    In convicting Mr. Dahl on 33 counts of making false customs statements, smuggling and possession of controlled substances, Judge Lytwyn described him as "the mastermind" of a well-organized business that largely imported and sold legitimate health supplements.

    Then I suggest his patients seek U.S doctors and get THEIR approved medication for whatever their problems may be.

    Opium is legal in many countries on the other side of the globe, that doesnt give me a foot to stand on if I decide I want to smuggle and sell it over here.

    "On April 11, 2004, the United States Food and Drug Administration banned the sale of Andro, citing that the drug poses significant health risks commonly associated with steroids."

    Next time your rights are violated in this country you'll all just take it in the rear. Good luck with that.

    Lets get real here, the people in Ottawa banned herbs such as eyebright on the simple fact that they thought people would put it in their eyes due to the name. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eyebright You trust them??

    I'm aware of the threats posed by Bills C-51, C-52 and the codex alimentarus and I believe they do potentially violate our rights as Canadians....I'm just saying I don't have a lot of sympathy for this particular individual.
