04/13/10 UPDATE: S.510 amended to protect Dietary Supplements - your PUSH BACK works! But we are not satisfied! The revised Action Item below is needed now more than ever! See: [link to www.healthfreedomusa.org
] for update details and then ACT BELOW!
03/11/10 - UPDATE: Yes, the McCain bill is dead. Due to massive Push Back! But now the Senator wants its worst provisions added to the fake "Food Safety" bill that has been pending before the Senate since last summer... read more here: [link to www.healthfreedomusa.org
] It is URGENT that more, updated messages be sent to the Senate; please take the Action Item below!
03/05/10 - UPDATE: DC rumor has it that Sen McCain told Sen Hatch that he would no longer support his own bill, S.3002, so this bill's threat to Health Freedom appears to be over for now, but, it is increasingly likely that attention will now focus on S.510, the fake "food safety" bill which could be applied to that form of food known as Dietary Supplements, effectively enacting the intent of the McCain bill, namely, to restrict our access to high potency Dietary Supplements. The struggle continues and the Action Item below has been updated to reflect the change in the political winds... We calculate that over 390.000 email messages were delivered through this Action Item since the McCain bill was introduced, which brings the total emails opposing both fake "safety" bills through this Action Item to over 1,300,000!
People need to write letters or call because this bilK gives them authorities to regulate your sale of excess cukes or squash to your neighbors...and also will create obstruction to my neighborhood dairy farmer down the road...
HELP Chairman Sen. Tom Harkin, mentioning “public concerns” (namely your Push Back!) and the Committee’s desire to protect family farms and organic agriculture, confirmed (about minute 58.5 of the "Mark-up" hearing video archive at the HELP site) that Codex Alimentarius (the so-called World Food Code) does not trump the Dietary Supplement Health and Safety Education Act of 1994 (the law that allows the USA to have the most potent nutrients and most vibrant nutrient market in the world) “DSHEA … governs the law here, not Codex standards…” Chairmen Harkin further stated: the provision in bill that requires FDA to “make recommendations including whether to harmonize whth Codex does not signal any intent to move in a different direction on DSHEA…”
2010 UPDATE: THESE PROMISES ARE NOT ENOUGH! WE CALL UPON ALL SENATORS TO OPPOSE JOHN MCCAIN'S "BACK DOOR" ATTACK ON DSHEA: DO NOT CO-SPONSOR HIS "DIETARY SUPPLEMENT SAFETY ACT OF 2010" DO NOT INCLUDE HIS PRO-CODEX PROVISIONS IN S.510!
