    FDA Threatens *Supplements - Please Read To Take Action And Keep Supplements Free


    I saw this on another board and thought its news worthy here for all to get involved.


    Subj: FDA Threatens *Supplements - Please Read To Take Action And Keep
    Supplements Free



    Friends and supplement patriots, congress is threatening to give new *
    powers to the FDA. This bill Food Safety *Accountability Act (S. 3767) is in the
    Senate and adds provisions to give the *FDA power to imprison supplement
    manufacturers for up to 10 years for *"adulteration and misbranding". *Sounds
    logical except, something so *simple as forgetting to fill out a form could
    get you labeled as "adulterating *and misbranding" a supplement. *Giving the
    FDA to push for criminal *penalties would mean that they can strong arm any
    small company that doesn't *have the money to fight. *

    Please email your Senator and tell them *to stop this horrible bill from
    passing. *This is URGENT, we need your *help. The Senator who introduced the
    bill is trying to rush this through bu *October 12th and hopes it goes
    through unopposed. *Please take action by *joining our friends at Life Extension
    Foundation and email your Senator *today! *

    Please do it now, we *need your help!

    if they take such action it will remove innovation from the supplement market b/c it will become too risky to put out supps that may contain a trace of something thats considered illegal

    I think Delta is probably right. The supplement industry is taking in a decent piece of the pie, but they aren't reinvesting to payoff the right folks at the top. If you don't have a big lobby that throws lots of money around, somebody else that wants your piece of the action does.
