Protect Your Access to Quality Nutritional Supplements

Protect Your Access to Safe and Effective Dietary Supplements

I am reprinting an urgent Action Alert from Citizens for Health. Senators McCain and Dorgan have introduced a destructive bill that threatens your access to safe and effective nutritional supplements. I urge you to read the bill and take action today!

-Dr. Gina

S. 3002 Must Be Overhauled or Scrapped – Act Now!

Senate Bill 3002 (S. 3002) is the worst bill we at Citizens for Health (CFH) have seen in the last 34 years, since the “Vitamin Volstead” Act was introduced.

Introduced by Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Byron Dorgan (D-ND) on February 4th as the “Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010,” it is designed, says the bill preamble, to “more effectively regulate dietary supplements that may pose safety risks unknown to consumers.”

The bill follows a surge of anti-doping initiatives and announcements dating back to September 29, 2009 (when the U.S. Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Drugs heard the testimony of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency USADA), and to a December 2nd, 2009 USADA press conference. If passed, the proposed bill would:

Dramatically harm consumers;
Cripple the nutritional products industry; and
Do absolutely nothing to stem the tide of laboratory-concocted, performance-enhancing drug hybrids masquerading as dietary supplements.

Once this bill is shelved, CFH will be happy to work with Senators McCain and Dorgan to come up with solutions directed at increasing and improving U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) enforcement against labs-for-hire that spike food products with steroids and other banned drugs.

Click here to send your letter today, and urge Congress to preserve DSHEA and your access to supplements by opposing S. 3002!

    Hi! Gina,

    Northwest grace and peace geetings!

    Remember me? Standard Process Southwest a long, long time ago.

    A friend forwarded the link to your blog re the treacherous McCain bill. Had already emailed NO to our two “lady” senators.

    Trusting it is well with you in God’s good and gracious providence,

    I agree 100%. The big pharma is trying to exert their leverage to sell us overpriced chemicals, when we are (currently) able to purchase supplements that allow us NOT to take prescription drugs and to maintain a healthly lifestyle. This is just another giant company lobbying the government for THEIR best interest, not ours. href=””>Roex


  3. I already belong to the health federation and have signed theirs. Also have sent it to others to be signed. I have been in the Holistic Health arena for 40 yrs~29 professionally, and am very concerned about our Health Freedom to choose.
    Thank you very much for passing this around also.

    I wholeheartedly believe in Holistic Health and natural nutrition supplements. I will work as diligently as John Adams during the American Revolution to protect our rights in the matter of health. To those in Congress or the Senate, I will gather as many votes as need be to oust you out of office if you choose to vote for this S.3002 Bill.
    In my opinion, Senator McCain is an enemy of the people.

    When debating whether to purchase a supplement, you must offer the label a radical viewing. Check the nutritional and ingredients panel to work out if precisely what you may be consuming. If you are allergic to any specific ingredients or nutrients than obviously this half is essential.


  6. I will include this post on my blog and try to get more people to take action.

    We need more freedom, not less, Senator McCain. I lowered my cholesterol levels and triglicerides and C-reactive protien levels in 6 months by taking natural supplements. I would have to go on dangerous, expensive pharmaceuticals if it weren’t for ginko biloba, grapeseed extract and quercitin. Maybe that’s what this is all about anyway? More money for big pharma. surprise surprise. Nancy
