FDA’s Attack On
Supplements Must and Can Be Stopped
Nathan Batalion, Global Health Activist, Healingtalks Editor
(Healingtalks) The National Health Federation has introduction legislation to counter the FDA’s infamous new Draft Guidance on New Dietary Ingredients (NDIs). That draft, if finalized, would destroy the natural supplement industry, which is Big Pharm and the FDA’s endgame plan. It would require require perfectly safe supplements to undergo needless and impossibly expensive testing or be removed from the market – which is the intent. On the other hand, synthetic vitamins, usually harmful, would be exempted because Big Pharma produces them for a profit.
Since the passage of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DHSEA) consumers in the US have enjoyed excellent access to essential nutrients. More recently, however, we have watched as the FDA nearly destroy that law with ever more onerous regulations. Now the FDA wants to go for the kill – to enforce impossible “safety” standards for supplements introduced after 1994 – to effectively outlaw them.
Dietary Supplement Protection Act (DSPA)
The counteracting bill is the brainchild of the National Health Federation and is being introduced by health-freedom advocate Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN). (For more information on Rep. Burton, visit the website http://indianadan.com.) This act amends DSHEA by moving forward the grandfathering date from 1994, thereby putting thousands of safe products immediately out of the NDI Draft Guidance‘s range. Thus the formulators and manufacturers of some 26,000 products added since 1994 can continue to remain on the market.
Putting this into perspective
In 1994 there were approximately 4,000 supplement products on the market. Now there are about 30,000. Thus an overwhelming majority or 87% of all our supplements might soon be removed from the marketplace by regulatory fiat.
Scott Tips, president of the National Health Federation, asks, “Where are the dead bodies from these new ingredients? There are none. The FDA knows this …yet wants to push these safe supplements off the market… through expensive and useless regulations camouflaged as ‘protecting the public.’
Chief aim is to destroy a safe industry
Essentially the FDA with Big Pharma’s support wants to destroy the safe and healing supplement industry because it competes with an industry that routinely cause over 100,000 deaths a year in the US alone, and when so-called “properly” prescribed. It causes over 200,000 deaths when we add the “correctly” and incorrectly prescribed drugs.
Stop this evil effort
With the Dietary Supplement Protection Act we can turn the tide in the opposite direction.
National Health Federation: Established in 1955, the National Health Federation is a consumer-education, health-freedom organization working to protect individuals’ rights to choose to consume healthy food, take supplements and use alternative therapies without unnecessary government restrictions. The NHF is the only such organization with recognized observer-delegate status at Codex meetings.
