John McCain trying to ban our supplements?!?!

  1. John McCain trying to ban our supplements?!?!


    I did a search and didnt find anything, sorry if its been posted...please let this fade into the abyss if so!

    If not....


    So apparently McCain proposed new legislation that would require all companies to go through a new government review. This will most likely make a lot of stuff illegal! Take a look at this site for more info: Save Our Supplements - Protect Your Access to Safe, Effective & Affordable Dietary Supplements


    Here is the actual bill: S. 3002: A bill to amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to more effectively regulate dietary... (GovTrack.us)


    Seriously WTF? I realize there are a few companies out there who take advantage of the lax laws *cough* AX *cough* that ruin it, but there are a lot of companies out there who are trustworthy and reliable, not to mention its up the consumer to decide what they want to put in their bodies(and do their own research). Last thing I want is for the few supplements that will be remaining to cost 5x more!


  2. I think this bill will riddle out ****ty companys that make bogus products and the companys that have the research will stay.

  3. Go here, enter your zip then send emails and letters.

    Then pass it onto EVERYONE you know.

    Add to this the soon to be enacted FTC requirements on supplement companies and as of today, March 2 2010, there are no companies in the industry that would be compliant with both the McCain Bill and the new proposed FTC rules.

    The truth is that this will only benefit the largest of the largest companies....the ones actually owned by Big Phama....(EAS, etc...)

    This is a joke of a bill....If only the FDA would enforce their current guidelines for SUpplement Companies, we would not need this BS of a bill...but BIG PHAMA $ talks.....

  5. One would think that between two foreign wars, a mortgage crisis, skyrocketing health-care premiums, unsustainable social security costs, illegal immigration, and 12.3 trillion dollars of national debt, the government would have better things to do.

  6. Naaah. Johnny's out to save the millions of people who die from vitamin related death....oh wait, there are none.


    I met him about seven years ago at a town hall meeting where the crowd opposed one of his pieces of legislation and he was not a happy camper at the time.

  7. Johnny's out to protect the Arizona biotech corridor. Arizona has been aggressively poaching biotech & pharma from SoCal for around a decade now.

    PRIME and PowerfULL will change that old mans mind!

  9. This bill is a bunch of BS. The FDA can't even properly regulate the actual drugs they're supposed to be regulating. Now McCain wants to put them in charge of regulating supplements too. Brilliant!

  10. it wont pass. US would take a massive hit financially

  11. its more of a publicity stunt** to get his name in news and put a "i care about societyhealth" under his resume

    No, he really is this stupid / uninformed / greedy.

  13. McCains not the only one that wants stricter bs rules and regs. Vitamin c will be by script only in the near future if the "idiots" have their way.

  14. The FDA is currently underfunded and overworked to the extreme, the chances of this passing are close to nil. I still did the automatic email to my representatives though and the response I got from him (don't remember who) was basically no way it's passing.

  15. Emails sent, thanks for the heads up

    Exactly the big compnays that actually do research. Why support manufacturing vs R and D. Support research vs just companies referencing research but never once has there companu done research them selves. I think companies like EAS, Nu Skin, Shaklee, Alltacore etc should be around as they spend 1000's of dollars researching and inovating.

  17. cool.i hope he puts an end to supps having prop blends and bottles priced @$30+ having not enough for a month supply.and as long he doesnt ban multiv,fishoil,creatine and protein im pretty happy.
