I haven't posted here in years, but this is very important. The FDA is currently trying to stop our right to buy supplements, herbs, massage oils and even vegetable juice in order to give Big Pharm more power and the general public less rights. You can see the article and take action below, however, the FDA link very conveniently doesn't work. When you try to send your comment, an error comes up, so I've also included a link directly to the FDA comments page. Scroll down a bit when you reach it. Please also contact your senators, Congressmen and anyone else you think will listen. Even if you aren't into supplements or whatever, think of this as a rights issue. Feel free to post this wherever, I just don't want to cross post here.

Thanks so much for posting that. We are healing our daughter using primarily supplements and if our freedoms toward that end are infringed upon in any way b/c of big pharma, we're outta here. No kidding.

If you look at Dr Mercola's site, you can probably find an explanation of why this is not as worrisome as it sounds. He had a lawyer look into it and come up with an assessment. Hold on, I'll see if I can find it.

Here you go.....
