May 11, 2022; (Alliance for Natural Health USA gives a very good overview of this non-Constitutional and unlawful legislation that will continue to erode our God-given Rights. If such as this is tolerated by We The people, we may as well pour kerosene on the Declaration of Independence and The Constitution and light a match! —-Ben TaylorThe intent of the gangsters in corporate government is to force every American man, woman, and child under control of the drug companies when it comes to all healthcare decisions. They cannot tolerate the people making natural health choices rather that submitting themselves to the prescription drug lords. The plan is to require anyone using supplements to get a prescription from a mainstream doctor. These prescriptions will likely be in such low dose as to render them virtually ineffective. Already the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for most vitamins and minerals is woefully inadequate to have much if any positive effective. For example the RDA of Vitamin C is only 90 mg. That is barely enough to prevent Scurvy. According to real Vitamin C experts such as Dr Thomas Levi, MD, JD and Dr Linus Pauling (and others) to be optimally effective requires thousands of mg of Vitamin C per day. Most animals produce their own Vitamin C in amounts that would be comparable to a person taking Vitamin C supplements of up to 10-20,000 mg daily. These government criminals can fabricate and pass legislation until hell freezes over, but they will never have any legitimate authority to tell individual Americans how to care for their person health.

Sen. Dick Durbin has launched his supplement attack by introducing his “Dietary Supplement Listing Act of 2022” with Senator Mike Braun (R-IN). This bill threatens your ability to access the supplements you rely on to stay healthy. We need to send a strong message to Congress that this is bad for consumers, bad for health, and bad for the economy.
The bill threatens fines and jail time for companies that do not comply. If a company does not submit the proper information, in the correct form, by the proper date, the supplement is considered misbranded. For the first offense, violators can be imprisoned for one year and fined $1,000 dollars; for the second offense, violators can be imprisoned for three years and fined $10,000. Given the safety record of supplements that will be detailed below, the punishments here hardly seem to fit the crime.
This bill creates a lose-lose situation for consumers and supplement companies: if companies don’t comply, they face fines and jail time; if they do comply, companies are orchestrating their own demise by giving the FDA the list it needs to sweep the market of as many as 41,000 supplements that do not comply with the agency’s overreaching (and incomplete) “new supplement” guidance. Supplement companies lose, the economy suffers, and consumers lose access to critical health products.
It’s bad, but it may not even be the biggest threat to your supplements right now. Separately, Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), chair of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, is independently moving forward with plans to attach a similar mandatory product registration provision for supplements to the reauthorization of the Prescription Drug User Fee Act that must pass by the end of September. Durbin’s policy, then, has twice the chance of success because it is moving forward on two distinct paths.
Why are more supplement regulations such a priority for these federal authorities? Supplements are overwhelmingly safe. According to the FDA, in 2021, the agency received 2,400 adverse event reports related to dietary supplements. To put this in context, according to the FDA’s adverse event database, in 2021 the FDA received a total of 2,333,453 adverse event reports. That means that dietary supplements make up 0.1% of the adverse event reports to the FDA. National reports consistently show zero deaths from dietary supplements; according to the FDA’s database, in 2021 alone drugs killed 187,750 Americans.
That supplements are the products getting federal attention speaks to the power of the drug industry lobby and the willingness of elected officials and FDA officials to do their bidding. We cannot let these forces succeed in undermining our ability to stay healthy, naturally.
Action Alert! Write to Congress and tell them to oppose mandatory product listing for supplements. Please send your message immediately
A well-organized, coordinated campaign from the FDA and Big Pharma is threatening access to the supplements you depend on. Using the false premise that supplements are unsafe, the FDA is working to gain more power over the regulation of supplements in order to further solidify Big Pharma’s monopoly over medicine. These efforts must be opposed.
Write to Congress and tell them to oppose efforts to establish a “mandatory filing” for supplements.
We encourage you to personalize the message if you have time!
