With the passing of HR2900, which includes S1082, the FDA could BAN Vitamins. Read How Our Tax Dollars And Politicians Do Not Work For Us. The People’s Safety, Health, and Interests Do Not Matter. Money Rules!


Alternative therapies and dietary supplements such as vitamins, minerals, and herbs are the true competition to the FDA’s “Big Pharma”. An underlying primary goal of the FDA is to help “Big Pharma” eliminate competition from the market.


Here’s what S1082 boils down to – If you use an herbal or dietary supplement to stay healthy or to help prevent an ailment, that’s fine. But if any supplement is used to treat a symptom, then it’s a medicine and will be regulated by the FDA, just like any prescription drug.


And there’s a qualifying statement to that second part: The supplement will be exempted if it is “generally recognized, among experts qualified by scientific training and experience to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of drugs, as safe and effective for use under the conditions prescribed, recommended, or suggested in the labeling”.


In other words, the freedom to use a supplement to treat a condition will be at the discretion of FDA experts. In the near future, it may be a crime to take vitamin c for a cold without a prescription, or the FDA could just take a widely used vitamin, mineral or herb supplement off the market if the label states a benefit!
