New Bill Seeks to Ban Consumer Access to Dietary Supplements – Take Action NOW!

Posted by Vince Arnone on 02/10/2010 in News | 1 Comment »

Once again, it appears that another piece of legislation regarding supplement regulation—in the guise of “protection of the citizens”—is being proposed by the US government. It’s being called the “Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010,” which would lead one to believe that it’s for our benefit when in fact it’s hardly that at all. As is stated by William Faloon, the co-founder of the Life Extension Foundation (www.lef.org), “The proposed Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010 is an egregious example of how this kind of insidious legislation comes into being, and how the public is deceived into thinking that Congress is seeking to ‘protect’ them (in this case from nothing), when the real purpose of the legislation is to further enrich the entrenched drug cartel that long ago bought and paid for most of Congress and the FDA. The Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010 is a blatant example of how Congress undermines free markets to enrich campaign contributors, decimates private sector innovation, and hastens the federal government’s plunge into a financial abyss.”
