On February 4, 2010, Senators John McCain and Byron Dorgan introduced S. 3002, the "Dietary Supplement Safety Act." This legislation would mandate that every dietary supplement would have to go through a brand new process of government review in order to stay on the market.
If this bill becomes law your health care choices will be drastically reduced, and many of the supplements available today will become illegal. This and other provisions of this misguided legislation affect ALL dietary supplements, including vitamins, minerals, herbs, sports, and diet products.
The supposed purpose of the bill is to make dietary supplements "safer," which is ironic because dietary supplements already have an excellent safety record. It also ignores the fact that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration already have the powers they need to police the market.

Special Thanks to Pamela of “Morgellons Focus” for alerting me to this awesome site (and movement). Listen everyone, doctors won’t help us, if we let “big pharma” take our supplements away we are royally screwed, sorry, but that’s the best way I can say it.
