In Dec the FDA will be moving forward to reclassify herbs as drugs. All vitamin and herb supplements will be affected. If you take vitamins or herbs, you will be affected.
If they do that, what herbs are cleared will increase in price. There are thousands of herbs and supplements that are not cleared. That means that many supplements and vitamins will be taken off the shelf.
You must do your part to let the FDA know you are against this.
They do not have your safety in mind. It has to door with the pharm companies and their push to control the herbal market place.
Right now this has already happened in Europe and it can happen here. The FDA is out of control. It is in bed with the drug companies...just look at the constant drug advertising on television.
Any supplement or vitamin introduced into the marketplace after 1994 will have to go through reams of paperwork and thousands of dollars to get cleared. They will have to prove with sales receipts and marketing material that they did sell their product before 1994. How many businesses have kept records back that far.
If the company changed the way they manufactured the supplement after 1994, which most have, they must go through the whole process.
You must show safety proof for 20 years......drugs only have to go through a few weeks to be be released to the public.....so why with herbs? It is one way to stop herb and vitamin formulations from being cleared.
This will effect all supplements including Fish Oil and Vit C....all of it. They are asking for manufacturers to give the same kind of proof that drug companies have to.....studies that cost billions of dollars. This is unnecessary and will put most companies out of business. The reams of unnecessary paperwork and legal costs will kill most businesses. You must hire an expert to figure out how to comply with the pages of paperwork.
When its all said and done, you will be left with no alternative other than drugs that destroy the liver and kidneys....you will have no choice but to do that.....This is serious and they will go ahead with this in the new year.
They must be stopped. It is overreach by the FDA and will be used with bias as the case now.
With Citizens for Health supporters already having generated over 11,000 letters to Congress demanding that the FDA’s NDI (New Dietary Ingredient) Draft Guidance be withdrawn.
The organization is now on a mission to collect 10,000 petition signatures in 10 days calling for Congress to withhold FDA appropriations until this unaccountable agency is held to account: by adjuring the FDA to withdraw the supplement-killing NDI Guidance and to cease and desist from reviewing and enforcing against dietary supplements and nutritional ingredients according to its willfully adversarial re-interpretation of the laws governing dietary supplements.
There is a petition that needs 10,000 signatures to be presented to the FDA .
We need your help to make that happen below:
Please take time to watch the video listed Below:
To help us in this effort, Australian truth rapper and activist Jody Lloyd, aka Trillion, helped produce our video "10,000 Signatures" - view it here.
Being almost halfway to 10,000 signatures in a little more than 2 days means we can certainly reach our goal - but only with your participation!
As always, thanks for being involved,
Please go here to this FDA site listed below and send the FDA your view against this guidance directly! Write them...call them....all of it!

How many companies are going to have the money to submit to pages of regulations and hassel?
Why should vitamin and herb companies be subjected to more paperwork than a drug?
