  1. Everyone needs to comment here. We only have to april 30th FDA action

    Urgent! This is not a joke or e-mail legend. If you do not act on this you may never be able to get any nutritional products again unless your doctor prescribes them. And we know two things about that:

    Most, but certainly not all doctors, have virtually NO training regarding nutritional supplements.

    Once the product comes from a drug company instead of a nutritional company the price skyrockets immediately.

    If you have EVER bought anything (natural health product) over the counter, on line, phone, or thru a distributor the FDA is planning to put a stop to this.

    Please, Please
    respond to the URL listed below & help us stop the FDA-again!

    There is a CRISIS in HEALTH FREEDOM!! On April 30, 2007 the FDA will close the public comment period on a 'Guidance' which will classify
    EVERY alternative practice as medicine so that only licensed physicians can carry out the procedure AND vitamins, minerals, herbs, etc., will suddenly become 'untested drugs' which WILL BE FORBIDDEN!

    Bad? Real Bad! But public outcry can stop this assault on your health and your freedom.

    I don't normally pass these types of email around - but this one is very important. Please take a moment to read it and respond. We must protect our rights to use supplements without the involvement of the FDA. Pharmaceutical companies would like nothing more than to strip you of your rights to purchase over-the-counter supplements.

    If you don't think its possible take a look north to Canada or across the ocean to Europe. You can't buy DHEA in Canada. You can't buy free form amino acids without a prescription in Europe!

    Take a minute to use the link at the bottom and let the FDA know you won't sit still and have them railroad you!

    Please share this link with them and urge them to take action:

    The letter to the government is already written, all you need to do to send it is to go here:

    Democracy In Action




    Spread the word! Tell everyone in your Circle of Influence, professionals, alternative practitioners, nutrient and herb companies, everyone! Let them know how important their participation is to make sure the FDA backs off from this repressive course.

    Please share this link with them and urge them to take action:

  20. this is what is currently posted at Save Our Supplements - Protect Your Access to Safe, Effective & Affordable Dietary Supplements. they have like interfaces to send letters to your states representatives and congress people as well as other actions with FDA polls. They also provide up to minute info and current status on each bill.

    What Legislation is Congress Considering?
    Congress is now considering legislation that would take away your access to safe, effective and affordable dietary supplements.

    The Dietary Supplement Access and Awareness Act (H.R. 3156), introduced by Representatives Davis (D-CA), Waxman (D-CA), and Dingell (D-MI), this month, would place trusted vitamins, minerals, and herbs under unprecedented and unwarranted scrutiny.

    The legislation would:

    Regulate supplements in ways similar to prescription drugs


    Require adverse event reports to be turned over to the FDA, even though other foods - including those with identical ingredients - do not have the same requirements


    Order supplement companies to demonstrate that a vitamin or mineral is not adulterated - in other words, disproving a negative


    Allow the Health and Human Services Secretary to declare that a supplement presents an unreasonable risk to the public, even if he/she cannot prove that the substance has actually caused harm in particular cases.
    If H.R. 3156 becomes law, 70 percent of dietary supplements currently on the market would become subject to burdensome new regulations - some equivalent to those required for prescription drugs - driving up supplement prices for everyone and forcing well known dietary supplements to disappear from store shelves. Review our position paper. Check current bill status. Take action to tell your elected officials to oppose H.R. 3156.

    The Senate is considering S. 1137, a bill to include dehydroepiandrosterone or DHEA, as an anabolic steroid. This legislation would add DHEA to the list of controlled substances, causing it to be immediately removed from the market when the bill becomes law. S. 1137 has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee. We expect that similar legislation will be introduced in the House very soon.

    DHEA is not an anabolic steroid. It is a naturally occurring hormone that has a wide range of benefits, including maintaining muscle strength and strong bones, boosting immunity, and improving mood and sleep patterns. Further studies suggest that DHEA may be helpful for such conditions as obesity, cancer and Alzheimer's disease. DHEA dietary supplements, which have been on the market for over 20 years, are derived from a plant in the wild yam family. Review our position paper. Check current bill status. Tell Congress you oppose S. 1137.
    Congress is also considering legislation that would make dietary supplements more accessible:

    The Dietary Supplement and Healthy Meal Replacement Tax Parity Act, H.R. 1545. Under this act, foods and dietary supplements with approved health claims can receive the same tax treatment as other products that maintain health and prevent illness. Review our position paper.

    The Healthy People, Healthy Choices Act of 2005, H.R. 161 , and the introduction of a companion bill in the Senate, which would authorize the Center for Disease Control to provide grants to promote healthy eating and exercise among minorities. Review our position paper.

    The DSHEA Full Implementation and Enforcement Act, H.R. 2485 , which would ensure that the FDA has adequate funding to carry out the law as Congress intended. Review our position paper.

    The Dietary Supplement Tax Fairness Act of 2005, H.R. 2486 , and the re-introduction of a companion bill in the Senate that would allow for the deductibility of dietary supplements in a manner consistent with other health care expenses that receive favorable treatment by the IRS. Review our position paper.

  21. Anyone have a link to the actual bills?
