ACTION ALERT Alliance for Natural Health Update posted 10/11/16 The FDA’s New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) notification process threatens consumer access to thousands of dietary supplements. The biggest issues in the original guidance remain in the latest revised version, and it is critical that the document be revised again to reflect what was intended in DSHEA:…Details
Sadly, the Drug Quality and Security Act is a deviously misnamed attempt by big drug companies to put its competition out of business. It became law on November 27, 2013, after being signed by President Obama. Unfortunately, it seems Congress, influenced by big pharmacy’s big lobbying dollars, wanted to make the appearance of repremanding the FDA for…Details
Only 38 more days to tell FDA and Congress that you oppose the proposed rule changes for nutritional supplements that will allow the FDA to treat them like drugs. The new rules will likely lead to the elimination of thousands of safe supplements and make any that survive much more expensive.
Sign this Petition to the AMA, FDA, Congress and the Major Media Outlets
Here’s my Petition Letter:
As a physician who represents thousands of well educated patients who are familiar with the tremendous volumes of positive research that supports the use of Vitamin Supplements, I was recently very disappointed to see what appears to be a coordinated effort by the AMA, the FDA, Big Pharma and the Media, to discredit dietary supplements for self interests at the expense of the US public.Details
Last Monday the AMA’s journal, Archives of Internal Medicine, released a study claiming that vitamin use might lead to an earlier death. This set off a major media frenzy of exaggerated headlines.
This study is a sham and keeps getting worse and worse. Today we have new info that clearly shows that last week’s horribly flawed vitamin study is not just bad math, it is fraudulent and specifically designed to pave the way for the FDA to demand vitamins be regulated as drugs.Details
Did you hear the breaking news yesterday—that multivitamins may shorten your life? With junk science from the AMA’s Archives of Internal Medicine and biased, invested interests, Conventional Medicine is trying to clear out the competition. This ridiculous “study” would be totally ignored if it weren’t for the media’s duplicitous and exaggerated headlines.Details
Your Supplements are in danger. Please sign this PETITION to keep the FDA from making all nutritional and herbal supplements drugs.
On July 1, 2011, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued proposed guidelines for New Dietary Ingredients (NDI). The FDA wants to turn your supplements into drugs so that they can seize more power and the billions of dollars that come with it. If it had the power, the FDA would treat everything as a drug and require the full drug approval process, no matter what it does for cost or availability.
The FDA already has the power to pull from the market any supplement, if it is unsafe, or does not comply with Good Manufacturing Practices, etc.Details
The cells of multivitamin users may have a younger biological age than cells from non-users, according to new research from the US.
Researchers from National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, led by Honglei Chen, MD, PhD, looked at the length of telomere DNA sequences at the end of chromosomes. They found that they shorten as cells replicate and age.
Dr. Chen and his co-workers noted that telomere length may be a marker of biological aging and that multivitamins may beneficially affect telomere length by reducing oxidative damage and chronic inflammation.Details
You probably saw the sensational media headlines last week: Calcium Supplements Cause Heart Attacks! We told you the truth about this several weeks ago, before the latest research came out. The headlines leave out the fact that its only high dose calcium tablets without Vitamin D, or any of the other essential calcium cofactors that were found to raise the risk of heart attacks. The truth is hidden in the article, but of course very few if any will actually read the original article published in the British Medical Journal. If you take calcium, be sure to read this.Details
By Stephen Daniells, 24-Jun-2010 Low blood levels of folate are associated with a 35 percent increased risk of hearing loss, says a new study from Australia that strengthens the link between B vitamins and hearing. Findings published in the Journal of Nutrition indicated that vitamin B12 levels were not associated with hearing, however. This is…Details
