Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 18, 2005
In a continuation of its policy to support the pharmaceutical industry by limiting freedom of access to health-giving nutritional products, the FDA is set to ban many perfectly safe natural health products. Citizens must take action to protect their right to proper nutrition, which is almost impossible without supplementation.
For some years, the pharmaceutical lobby has been successful in having the FDA tighten the screw on the nutritional products that keep many people from ill-health, whilst approving dangerous, health-damaging drugs as ÂtreatmentsÂ (e.g. In American hospitals alone, 106,000 people die every year due to drug side-effects, whilst precisely none die from nutrition-related side-effects.)
In fact, Doctors are now the leading cause of death in the USA Â causing more deaths than cancer or heart disease, and costing over 700 lives every day.
Not content with this situation, the FDA is now setting up the killer blow for the manufacturers and retailers of the nutritional supplements and natural health products many rely on to stay healthy. Having failed the first time round, the FDA is ÂreviewingÂ the DSHEA (the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act, Docket 2004N-0454), with the clear intent of making many perfectly safe and popular natural supplements illegal.
Prior to the original bill in 1994, 2.5 Million concerned citizens contacted Congress to make their concerns known with the result that these products were correctly classified as ÂfoodsÂ rather than ÂdrugsÂ of Âfood additivesÂ. A similar response is now required if perfectly safe, health-giving supplements are not to be lost now for good, along with the right to protect one's health as you see fit.
Concerned citizens should contact their member of Congress (http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm), representative (http://www.house.gov/writerep/) or visit the Health Action Center (http://www.healthactioncenter.com), where they can get more information.
