Protect Your Right to Know about the Science Behind Supplements!

May 5, 2013

This one bill would positively impact the health of more people than anything else our govt. can do. But the govt. is against it – why? Because it means more power to the people and less govt. power. 🙁 [Why is govt. there? To protect the people, not to rule them.]

Send your congresspeople a letter via the link below, and spread the word!  Also, join the http://www.anh-usa.org!

Protect Your Right to Know about the Science Behind Supplements!
Help us gain co-sponsors for the Free Speech about Science Act, HR 1364!

Consumers are largely kept in the dark about the potential health benefits of foods and supplements. Why? Because current law makes it illegal for food and supplement producers to share this information.

Congressmen Jason Chaffetz (R–UT) and Jared Polis (D–CO) have introduced the Free Speech about Science Act (HR 1364). This landmark legislation protects basic free speech rights, ends censorship of science, and enables the natural health products community to share peer-reviewed scientific findings about natural health products with the public.

At first sight, this might not appear to be a blockbuster bill. But look closely. If it passes, Free Speech about Science has the potential to transform the healthcare field by educating the public about the real science behind natural health. This is a small bill with vast potential leverage.

For this very reason, the bill will have opposition. It will be opposed by the FDA, which flatly forbids food and supplement manufacturers from mentioning any link between a product and a health condition. This is true even if the link is established by peer-reviewed scientific studies coming out of Harvard and other highly respected universities.

It will also be opposed by drug companies fearing competition from natural health approaches based on diet, dietary supplements, and lifestyle. Please do not let these special interests stop this bill. Please contact your representative today. Ask him or her to co-sponsor this vital legislation!
