Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments FDA already has enough legislative authority to regulate supplements. DSHEA provides the FDA with enough legal authority to protect the public health. Why is it that when one person misuses/abuses a supplement then the whole industry becomes questioned? Why is it that a rediculously higher percent of people die everyday from prescription drugs but nothing is done? The FDA can already seize dietary supplements that pose an unreasonable or significant risk of illness or injury. Please let our industry be. Let us who find great healing therapy through natural dietary supplements continue to use these at free will. The FDA has finally started to fully implement the law by taking aggressive action against unsubstantiated dietary supplement claims. It has also said that good manufacturing practices are imminent. Give these efforts a chance to work. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Amy Kallenberger
