ACTION ALERT — New Sneak Attack on Supplements

The Alliance for Natural Health (ANH) has issued an Action Alert concerning an amendment that Senator Blumenthal is considering introducing to a must-pass military appropriations bill that threatens Americans’ access to supplements..   According to ANH, the proposal would extend a currently existing policy regulating certain supplements on military bases to require all supplements that are to be sold to members of the military at exchange stores or commissaries to undergo a third-party review for “recognized public standards of identity, purity, strength, and composition, and adherence to related process standards.”  With your help, we defeated a similar proposal last year–we must do so again. Read more from ANH and TAKE ACTION to write or call your senators and urge them to oppose the Blumenthal amendment in the event it comes up for a vote, which will take dangerous steps towards limiting consumers’ access to dietary supplements. .  Please send your message immediately.   Note: By clicking on this link, you will be leaving Your Voice for Health’s website and accessing the Alliance for Natural Health’s website.
