Is America REALLY the Land of Freedom?
YOUR RIGHTS, YOUR FREEDOM!
DON’T ALLOW CONGRESS TO OVERTURN SUPPLEMENT HEALTH AND
EDUCATION ACT OF 1994!
The Land of Freedom is become the land of controlled. Fellow Americans, your freedom of choice and right to health is in jeopardy. Congress wants to control all herbal products, as well as vitamins and minerals. These are natural sources, which have been used safely for hundreds of years. These products could be removed from the marketplace permanently unless you take action NOW and keep the land of freedom.
Some legislators are proposing extreme measures that would all but eliminate the 1994 Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DESHEA) and allow, if not encourage the FDA to regulate supplements like pharmaceuticals.
This means you could lose access to many of the supplements you take regularly such as multivitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, etc. [Leaflet from GNC]
Dietary supplements are derived from natural ingredients, and therefore cannot be patented. This also keeps such products affordable and available. Natural supplements are more convenient and safe, as opposed to over-the-counter (OTC) medication and prescribed drugs. Congress is voting on laws that could sabotage the freedom American consumers have on dietary supplements, an area they know nothing about.
The government allows alcohol and cigarettes to remain legal, but if you want to be healthy and fit via vitamins, minerals, and herbs, they just won’t have that! Aspirin kills 1,000 people a year in the United States alone and causes 5,000 cases of kidney failure. Vitamins, minerals, and herbs, on the other hand, can prevent such ailments, as well as certain forms of cancer and heart disease. The bill targets anti-aging therapy. Next they will try and take away broccoli from our diets because it is healthy.
I find it rather humorous that the national media, government, drug companies, and health care providers downplays herbs, vitamins, and minerals, suggesting that they are ineffective and basically a waste of money, yet they want to regulate our usage.
Ephedra, which was recently banned, is a stimulant. The caffeine in your coffee and cola is a stimulant but this ingredient isn’t being banned.
You Can Make A Difference
YOU can make a difference! If you value your right to health, nutrition, wellness, and longevity, I urge you to take a stand and be heard by contacting your Legislator TODAY! Visit http://www.usfa.biz/ and put in your information and generate the letter to your senator and congressmen and snail mail it to them.
It is easy and it only takes a minute to print the letter. It will plug in your name and address. All you have to do is print it and mail it. You must stand by your freedom of choice when it comes down to your health. If you don’t look out for you and your family, the government sure won’t.
For a double whammy, send a second notice. E-mail your Senators now by entering your ZIP Code in the “Take Action Now” box, at http://www.nnfa.org/ to locate your senators. Send an e-mail, fax, or phone call today, before it’s too late.
You need to let your Senators know immediately that you support S. 1538 and ask them to co-sponsor the bill, and ask them to oppose S. 722.
Do your part and make yourself and your country a healthier place.
