Updated Contact Information for Stopping the EPA from Regulating Colloidal Silver
We’ve just heard from our good friend Ralph Fucetola, JD, also known as the Vitamin Lawyer, that EPA has put up a brand new page for public comments regarding the petition to regulate silver nanoparticles as “pesticides.” They have also assigned a brand new docket number to the petition.
The new public comments web page is located at this link:
The new docket number, which you must refer to in all correspondence with the EPA, is:
What to Do Now…
There are now five simple but absolutely vital steps you need to take to help win the battle to stop the EPA from regulating silver nanoparticles as “pesticides,” which would result in the removal of just about every brand of colloidal silver on the market today, and give a handful of big corporate interests the monopoly on the use of silver particles.
Step #1: Go to the brand new EPA public comments page at the link above (or click here) and register your comments. Explain why you do not want the EPA to regulate silver nanoparticles as “pesticides.” If you need verbiage for your comments, the blog post directly below this one has a sample letter you can pull from. They are in blue italic type, so you can find them quickly.
Step #2: Email your comments opposing the petition to regulate silver particles as “pesticides” to EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson. His email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Step #3: Fax your comments to EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson, at his Washington DC fax number: (202)-501-1450.
Step #4: Send a personal letter to the Washington DC office of EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson. His address is as follows:
Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) Regulatory Public Docket (7502P)
ATTN: Administrator Stephen Johnson
Environmental Protection Agency
1200 Pennsylvania Ave, NW
Washington, DC 20460-0001
Important Note: All comments to the EPA – whether you make them by email, fax, snail mail or through the public comments section of their web site — must reference the “Petition for Rulemaking Requesting EPA Regulate Nanoscale Silver Products as Pesticides,” and must also reference the new Docket #: EPA-HQ-OPP-2008-0650-0506
Step #5: Finally, go to the Health Freedom blog of the Ralph Fucetola, The Vitamin Lawyer, at http://vitaminlawyerhealthfreedom.blogspot.com/2009/01/defending-nano-silver.html
and read his brief but highly pertinent comments about the battle to save colloidal silver from EPA regulation.
Then, go to the special web page link set up by the Natural Solutions Foundation, read their brief, four-paragraph comment asking the EPA to reject the petition to regulate silver nanoparticles as “pesticides,” and e-sign their comment. They will forward your e-signed comment to the EPA en masse with hundreds of others.
Why All 5 Steps?
I know this is a lot of work. And I know your time is extremely valuable. So is mine. I would much rather be writing about how to save lives with colloidal silver, rather than battling whacko environmental organizations and fending off bureaucratic groups who want to regulate colloidal silver into oblivion.
But as I mentioned in the longer blog post on this subject directly below, health freedom battles are never easily won. Our opponents are some of the biggest special interest groups and corporate interests in the world. And they have literally millions of members they can call on to support their position.
Nevertheless, right now we are actually winning this battle, thanks to the many hundreds if not thousands of individuals and organizations who answered the call when we first exposed the petition to regulate silver nanoparticles in early January. Once we demonstrated through the words of the petition sponsors that they are actually out to force EPA to regulate colloidal silver into oblivion, people who love their health freedom went into action.
But once we began winning the battle, the EPA suddenly agreed to extend the comments period deadline, giving the whacko environmental organizations like Friends of the Earth and special interest groups like ICTA an extra two months to garner comments in favor of their petition!
In other words, EPA saw the tide of battle turning against the petition to regulate silver particles as “pesticides,” and gave the petition sponsors a new lease on life. Why? Because EPA desperately wantsto be able to regulate silver particles as “pesticides” under their antiquated FIFRA regulations, which allow them to ban any substance they deem to be “harmful to the environment.”
Therefore, we absolutely must keep up the pressure on the EPA.
Between now and March 20, 2009 (the new deadline for registering public comments on this issue) the rabid environmental organizations and special interest groups are going to flood the EPA with a host of new comments in favor of the petition, garnered from their millions of collective members. We must outgun them tit-for-tat – and then moreso — with our own comments asking EPA to reject the petition.
During WWII, when General George S. Patton’s troops were outnumbered ten to one, Patton boldly told his troops, “This is not a problem. Each of you must simply kill ten of the enemy.” And they did!
Similarly, I must tell you in all earnestness, though we are vastly outnumbered by those who want to see silver particles regulated as “pesticides” (and who ultimately want to see colloidal silver banned) this is not a problem. All we have to do is take each of the five simple steps enumerated above, and thereby neutralize all of our opponent’s comments in favor of the petition.
For every one of their comments in favor of the petition, we must send in five of our own against the petition, and from all different directions, i.e., email, fax, snail mail, the online public comments system, and the special comments system set up by the Vitamin Lawyer at the Natural Solutions Foundation web site.
At the very least, start posting your comments to the new EPA public comments page for the petition.
This is how health freedom battles are won. Let’s double our efforts, and get this job done, so we can get back to the noble work of showing people how heal themselves the safe, natural way.

P.S. Don’t doubt for a minute that they are out to regulate colloidal silver into oblivion. Even the addendum to the petition to have EPA regulate silver particles as “pesticides” names the top four brands of colloidal silver products on the market today as being products that need immediate EPA regulation as “pesticides.” It also names many other lesser-known brands of colloidal silver as being in need of regulation. And it proclaims that the list of 200+ products in the petition addendum constitute “only the tip of the iceberg” of what they are out to regulate.
