Why is the FDA Attacking Dietary Supplements That Have Been Used Safely for Decades?

Once again we at JE Health Care Solutions is sounding the alarm.  The FDA now wants to take away your ability to get Natural Supplements.

Once again the FDA is looking out for the Big Drug Companies, instead of protecting the people.  In Dr. Mercola's article of April 23, 2012 he shows how the FDA is trying to bypass Congress by issuing "Draft Guidance on New Dietary Ingredients."

Over 60 Billion Doses a Year and Not ONE Death, But Still Not Safe?

Vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements have a tremendously safe track record, yet they are often singled out as being potentially dangerous by government agencies like the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

This – the notion that dietary supplements are unsafe -- is the premise behind the FDA's Draft Guidance on New Dietary Ingredients, which would require the supplement industry to prove the safety of natural ingredients that, in many cases, have been on the market and used safely for decades.
As new research from the American Association of Poison Control Centers' National Poison Data System reveals, there were zero deaths linked to nutritional supplements in 2010, the most current data available.

I strongly urge you to read this article and then contact you Reps. And Senators in Washington and demand that they stop the FDA from trying to bypass the:
Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 which states that:

"The Federal Government should not take any actions to impose unreasonable regulatory barriers limiting or slowing the flow of safe products and accurate information to consumers."

Please take action to protect your rights, and contact your Representatives now.  Dr. Mercola includes a sample letter in his post.  I also urge you to tell your Representatives to get the Big Drug companies out of the FDA and make it an agency that protects the people instead of protecting the drug companies profits.
