Don't Let the FDA Outlaw New Supplements!

Exercise your right to stop this threat.
Call your Representative and Senators on September 8th!

Back in the early 1990s, consumers were so alarmed by FDA bullying that they staged a massive revolt. The result was that Congress passed the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) prohibiting the FDA from banning popular nutrients, which the agency had threatened to do.

There was, however, a loophole in the 1994 law. The FDA was given authority to regulate ingredients introduced after October 15, 1994.

It has been 17 years, but the FDA just issued draconian proposals as to how it intends to regulate what it now calls “new dietary ingredients.” If implemented, some of the most effective nutrients you are taking will be removed from the market. This includes many fish oil formulas and natural plant extracts.

These oppressive rules are exactly what the 1994 law (DSHEA) sought to prevent. The FDA is using its authority in direct violation of congressional intent.

In order for these ingredients you are using today to return to the market, the FDA will require manufacturers to conduct outrageously expensive studies using absurdly high doses, in some situations multiplied by a “safety factor” up to 2,000 times the recommended dosage on a per product basis.

And remember, the FDA defines dietary supplements as being “new” if they were introduced after October 15, 1994. That means that even certain nutrients that have been safely used for as long as 17 years will be subject to the FDA’s oppressive policies that mandate costly testing.

Please read this article. Then call your Representative and two Senators on September 8, 2011 to say NO to the FDA's New Dietary Ingredient Guidelines! Use the talking points attached to demand that the FDA withdraw these proposed guidelines. Protect your health and your freedom now!
