If you use herbal or natural supplements to enhance your well being or to help treat a specific health issue you have, your right to use that product freely is being jeopardized by some things that are going on right now and legislation that is being bandied about that may give the FDA the right to control and limit the distribution and approval of herbal supplements.
Tell them that you don’t agree with this. Seriously, this is a threat to our access to some of our most beloved natural vitamins that we all have come to know and love so well.
It is estimated that 80% or more of Americans right now take some sort of supplement or vitamin to help their health, and this pending government interference is going to jeopardize all of that.
This blows my mind, because the government arm of regulation for prescription drugs, the FDA, has failed us in so many other ways. Look at the failure to identify multiple life threatening drugs before they were on the market for several years?
If you are mad like me, and want to voice your opinion, go to this URL http://www.democracyinaction.org/dia/organizationsORG/healthfreedomusa/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=7185 and voice your opinion. We’ve beat the odds before and had this type of meddling put down before in our right to treat ourselves naturally, but apparently the medical industry is having sway again, and it’s up for discussion again.
You can make a difference. Also, you can visit HealthFreedomUSA.org and read about all the ways the government is proposing to interfere in our right to access herbal remedies and natural supplements. It’s quite mind blowing, and it’ll probably get you mad!
