Legislation Alert -- Howto e-mail your Senators
I got this message from a vitamin company, it's about the new rules the US Senate are considering regarding supplements. One group of politicians wants to make everyday stuff more difficult to get, another group wants to leave things as they are . . . that's it in a nutshell, anyway . . .
You can click on the URL below to go to a website where you type in your Zip code and name & address and it'll e-mail your senators with "right and proper" instructions, or you can have it printed right where you are and you can send it via USPS.
Anyway, now's the time to speak up about this shit . . . y'know, regular plain everyday protein powder is illegal in some countries, we don't really need the US Congress going down that road . . . speak up and let your voice be heard.
Your Access to Vitamins and Supplements may be taken away by the U.S. Congress.
We felt that it was important to let you know about a new proposal in the US Senate that could eliminate your access to the vitamins and supplements you rely on. Some legislators are proposing extreme measures that would allow the FDA to regulate your vitamins and supplements like prescription medications. This means you could lose access to many of the supplements that you take regularly, such as Multivitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Calcium, and Glucosamine just to name a few. Can you imagine paying prescription drug prices for the products that you rely on? This is what this new legislation could mean to you.
You can make a difference!
Support S.1538 — A bill introduced by Senator Tom Harkin and Senator Orrin Hatch that will protect your access to Vitamins and Supplements.
Oppose S.722 — A bill introduced by Senator Richard Durbin that may significantly undermine the freedom that we as American consumers have regarding our dietary supplements.
