McCain's Dietary Supplement Bill Defeated

Thanks to all who took action and signed the petition against the McCain Bill. It worked! I just received this email:

Your Victory on the McCain Bill

We did it!

It's all thanks to the action that you took.

Hundreds of thousands of messages poured into the Senate opposing Senator McCain's bill, the bill that would
have wiped out current legislative protections for dietary supplements. More
and more messages were arriving by the day. The entire Congress began
to take note. Senator McCain was embarrassed by our ad whose headline
pointed out that he was misrepresenting and di
d not seem to
understand his own bill.

Word is now racing around Capitol Hill
that Senator McCain met with Senator Orin Hatch, a champion of natural medicine, and
told him that he is withdrawing his support for the bill he authored,
the so-called Dietary Supplement Safety Act (S 3002). This means that
the bill as written is now dead.

Is this the end of the story? No. Having given his word to a fellow senator, McCain
is not likely to resume his support for the bill. But we do need to see a
declaration from McCain himself. We will need to see if McCain will try
to offer some modified version of the bill. And there has also been no
word from the other co-sponsor of the bill, Senator Dorgan.

We will keep you posted. In the meantime, it is time to celebrate your
accomplishment. The democratic process worked. The people spoke and a
powerful senator reversed course. It was all because of you, the active
citizens willing to take time and make the effort to defend natural and
sustainable forms of health and healthcare in the often hostile
environment of
Washington, DC. As we all know, Washington is ringed today with special
commercial interests. They have millions of dollars of campaign
contributions to hand out and gigantic lobbying budgets. But in the end,
politicians have to answer to the people.

Thank you!

I don't think the bill would have prevented you
from buying whatever you want to.
it's intention was to stop unsubstantiated claims.
I prefer to get my vitamin D from occasional sun,
oranges and milk.
Okay, I did some research.
The cartel hides behind "Legalese"
and the people against it make wild
claims, and use subversive historical
references that have nothing to do,
with what they run in circles trying
to articulate.
When they got to the claim,
that somehow public access to Garlic
was a stake, well it was a good laugh.
I am 56 in a couple of days.
I'm pretty hard to fool or convince.
In my life, I have known many that
said they were healthier with supplements.
however, their claim was the only evidence.
I decided long ago, If it doesn't damage you,
go ahead and take them. That's a personal
choice. But, your genetics, lifestyle and diet
are the only real factors in health.
And diet, is absolutely second to genetics.
I will have to put codex alimentarius on the
back burner as a bunch of lawyers.
My least favorite scum of humanity.

Gary, are you familiar with 'codex alimentarius'? You can do a search for posts on this site as well as articles on the web. Here is a link for an article specifically about McCain's bill:

I feel that McCain's bill was an attempt to take away our health freedom of choice and wouldn't Big Pharma just love that! I do agree there are some worthless vitamins out there however I have seen a big improvement in my health since I have been taking vitamin D3.

We might disagree here some.
I think that any advertised product,
should be scientifically proven to do,
exactly what it says on the label.
Man-made or natural, all inclusive.
Otherwise, it is a "home remedy"
and should be limited to that claim.
I have not seen even one absolute
result touted by dietary supplements.
Ingesting manufactured, concentrated
to an "unnatural level", herbs and such
is a dangerous proposition regardless.
And most likely produces only a placebo effect,
or it would be very "mainstream" popular.
Word of actual results travels fast, and sticks.
If you can't prove results, you advertise.
I avoid products that advertise for two reasons.
Number one: you are not the best, or you
would be the only one used for that purpose.
Number two: If you have to "sell" your product,
the advertising budget quite often exceeds the
cost of producing the product. All Ad costs being
passed on to the people you manage to convince.
Thus perpetuating a culture of stretching the truth.
Personally, I refuse to participate.
Advertising to me is this:
A nice pink lacy bra on a cross dresser.
It looks great, but it is not really what it seems.
Touting your product to the general public sheeple,
with fancy colors and a marching band is just wrong.
It shows your product has no real merit or uniqueness.
When was the last time you saw a commercial for
a manual can opener? Or a door knob?
You don't. Because it is quite difficult, to lie about it.
"New and Improved" usually means, you hired a new
Ad agency, and printed a new Logo.
