Citizens Petition Congress to Oppose Anti-Supplement Bill




Supplement supporters intend to defeat S.3546 with the help of America’s natural healthy living community. Deceptively titled “Dietary Supplement and Non-Prescription Drug Consumer Protection Act,” this bill foreshadows the aim of Codex Alimentarius to treat dietary supplements more like pharmaceuticals and not like food. In actuality, it would protect pharmaceutical companies from competition by low-cost natural alternatives. If passed, the new law would amend the U.S. Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act to require reporting of “serious” adverse affects from over-the-counter drugs and dietary supplements to the federal Food and Drug Administration.

Time is of the essence as this 2006 bill has now gone into committee review and been placed on the U.S. Senate legislative calendar. Lead sponsor is Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah.
