    • Doctors Support Banning Supplements


      From Iron Magazine

      An editorial in the January 25, 2012, issue of the New England Journal of Medicine strongly supports the FDA’s proposed New Dietary Ingredient guidelines that would ban most of the effective nutrients you use today. One inane argument is that since some unscrupulous manufacturers are spiking their products with drugs like Viagra®, then all supplements introduced after year 1994 should be removed from the market until the FDA approves them for safety.

      This has nothing to do with how the FDA is proposing to deny Americans access to natural supplements, but it is nonetheless being used as an excuse to give pharmaceutical giants a monopoly over what you are allowed to put into your body.

      FDA Inundated with Protests

      In response to the New Dietary Ingredient guidelines, the FDA has received more than 146,000 pages of comments that expose the absurdities of what the FDA is proposing.

      Pharmaceutical interests desperately want the FDA to put these guidelines into effect so that Americans will be dependent on prescription drugs. The impact on consumers will be higher prices and reduced efficacy, along with the horrific side effects associated with many FDA-approved medications.

      We’ve Already Won Some Congressional Support

      Two powerful senators and longtime friends of natural health, Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) and Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), wrote to FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg and formally asked the FDA to withdraw its guidance document.

      In addition, Rep. Randy Hultgren (R-IL) recently made a speech titled “Over-regulating Dietary Supplements Endangers Americans’ Jobs and Health” on the floor of the House of Representatives, urging the FDA to go back to the drawing board and ensure that they do not limit Americans’ access to dietary supplements.

      Ask Congress to Stop this Insanity

      Health freedom groups have devised a unique strategy to save our supplements from central government prohibition.

      As you may know, the comment period for the New Dietary Ingredient Draft Guidance is now closed and the FDA will be reviewing all the comments they have received. During this period, we want to make the Draft Guidance such a hot-button political issue that the FDA will be forced to take notice and will address the public’s serious concerns.

      By accessing our convenient Legislative Action Site, you can ask your senators and representative to make a one-minute floor speech opposing the FDA’s plan to sweep many supplements off the shelf. At the same time, you will be asking your members of Congress to write the FDA about the consumer revolt that is occurring in response to these draconian proposals to take away the most effective dietary supplements on the market today!

      TAKE ACTION NOW! (it only takes 15 seconds)

        Unfortunately there's nothing we can really do here, if the government wants this bad enough it will happen. Government no longer works for the people, the people are enslaved by the government and their corporation propaganda. The government has been doing what IT wants for years... It's unfortunate I love my supplements and the pharmaceutical company is just another corrupt entity of our government.

        Heck even the idiot box has all these retroactive lawsuits against pharmaceuticals. I saw one the other day on like 6 brands of women's contraceptives. And it seems like half of the drugs used for mental patients actually cause as side effects suicidal thoughts... WTF... I'd rather do my own research and choose reputable supplements from reputable companies than have top be prescribed some stuff that is going to screw with my system.
