We are fighting to keep our vitamins, minerals and supplements from being taken away. It is our right to choose the best method of health care for ourselves, and the government should not let large companies such as the drug industry, and organized, uneducated, money hungry groups such as the AMA prevent this. They are motivated by the money they are losing because they cannot patent and control herbs. If you do your research, you would find that traditional herbalist and homeopathic doctors were the norm prior to the formation of the AMA in 1847. The AMA has way too much power now, and I am sure they are behind this movement, since alternative health care threatens their outrageous profits. The drug industry keeps developing all these drugs for whatever disease, but people just keep getting sicker and sicker. They don't want to you be well...there is no profit in well people! Please open your eyes and ears and be aware of what is really going on here. It is all about the $$$ money, not health care! DO NOT MESS WITH DSHEA. We the people must continue to have full access to new and existing dietary supplements. People are learning every day that health care is not about drugs. Drugs (prescription and nonprescription)are not the anwser, they are the cause of disease. They cause the body to go completly out of balance, and they weaken the immune system. Then add in the enviromental toxins and between the three illness is the result. Drugs only suppress symptoms, they do not address or treat the cause. WE must balance and strenghten the body in order to rid it of disease. This has been accomplished over and over with dietary supplements, yet we are forced to constantly fight for our right to freedom of access to these supplements. Please help us by doing the right thing. DO NOT CHANGE DSHEA. Thank you.
