Wellness Resources urges consumers to fight for their access to dietary supplements on September 8th 2011.

Let your voice be heard. Even if you have already written letters, it is your phone call on September 8th that counts.

Senator Richard Durbin (D-Illinois) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) proposed their new draft guidance for the dietary supplement industry—an act that threatens to eliminate consumers’ right to access affordable, high-quality and safe dietary supplements. Wellness Resources and nationally-renowned Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist, Byron J. Richards, urge consumers to take action on September 8, 2011, the national grassroots call to action day, to protect their access to dietary supplements.

Founded in 1985, Wellness Resources is an established, family-owned and operated nutritional supplement company. Having extensive clinical nutrition experience, Byron J. Richards and Wellness Resources have successfully helped hundreds of thousands of people reclaim their health. Richards declares that this potential control over the dietary supplement industry by the FDA and large pharmaceutical companies is not in consumers’ best interest. He attests, “It will severely restrict consumer access to affordable, high-quality dietary supplements—supplements that are proven safe and effective and have helped millions reclaim their health.”

“U.S. citizens want full access to their nutritional supplements. Safety of nutritional supplements on the market has already been proven to the FDA. This draft guidance, rather, is an attempt to run small and midsize nutritional supplement companies out of business, taking over the dietary supplement industry in the name of greed and power,” he further explains.

Richards declares, “Thursday September 8, 2011, is the national call-in day to members of Congress to protest the draconian FDA NDI regulations for dietary supplements—regulations that will retroactively remove many dietary supplement ingredients from the market, while driving up prices. This grassroots call-in campaign has been organized by the Alliance for Natural Health (ANH) and is being supported by many health freedom groups, reputable dietary supplement companies, and consumers across America. Let your voice be heard. Even if you have already written letters, it is your phone call on September 8th that counts. It is time to flood their switchboards with phone calls.”

All consumers who value their dietary supplements are strongly advised to call in to their Congress representatives on this day, and firmly object this draft guidance.
