I don't think regulating them is a bad idea, necessarily. There are surely some that need checked up on - Trimspa comes to mind. And who says they'll be prescription only? There's TONS of over-the-counter medicines. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

yeah, but do you think EO's should be sold as medication? What if it's not over the counter? This would mean that even if you are against western med. and you want to do homeopathic remedies you will have to see an MD to get them, and even then there's the chance that an md wouldn't want to give you an rx for them. You would also have to pay co-pay fees to see that doctor. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: To me there's a huge difference between trimspa (or any other wt. loss drug) and EO's and vitamins.

This happens every 10-15 years. The medical profession keeps thinking they can control everything we eat, drink and breathe. Eventually they will, but it will be a detriment to everyone.<br><br>
so sad that no one uses common sense. It happens that when the French doctors made medicines prescriptive, Thomas Jefferson said that a government that can control what you eat will seek to control what you think.

I'm reading the FDA article linked in the OP and it appears that it's just a draft to be used as guidance for people selling health and beauty products.
<div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the<br>
availability of a draft guidance for industry entitled ``Complementary<br>
and Alternative Medicine Products and Their Regulation by the Food and<br>
Drug Administration.''</td>

It appears that people are getting confused at what is to be classified a drug or otherwise and this is just a booklet to advise those interested in finding out if their products are regulated by the FDA or not.

The problem is that one of the bills that was considered for enactment some years ago sought to regulate potencies of, for example, vitamin A which would have put most carrots behind the pharmacy counter. Is that what you want done? Is that a proper use of government power?
