Call to action... Proposed FDA supplement bill.
I got this letter from GNC today:
Proposed Senate Bill 722 would dramatically alter the current marketplace and every dietary supplement would be at the mercy of government bureaucrats who are notoriously anti-supplement. S.722 would give the FDA the power to disapprove the continued marketing of any supplement for which even one adverse event report is received.
The burden of proof provision in DSHEA was specifically crafted to insure that the FDA could not eliminate supplements simply by taking an arbitrary position that a supplement was unsafe. S. 722 is an attempt to amend DSHEA so that the FDA can do exactly just that.
Sure it is from GNC and they want to protect there sales. But this could also mean that we do not have the freedom to buy the supplements that we want. I can see some things going away now, ephedra, yohimbe, ginseng. I urge you all to contact your congress people and tell them how you feel about this bill.

It also has a place to input your zip code it automatically finds your congress people and writes up a letter you can print to send, or email to them. You can also write your own messages. The whole process is pretty simple and only takes about 5 minutes.
