There is an issue before the FDA, (Food and Drug administration) which if passed could prevent your access to vitamins and minerals.
The basic push behind the FDA’s proposed actions is the thought that if you take too many vitamins and minerals, you could poison yourself.
There is a thread of truth to this, but how many people have you known who have gotten sick or died from taking too many vitamins? The only story I know of about this is when a bunch of arctic explorers ate polar bear livers they overdosed on the vitamins inside 100 years ago.
I myself have found more benifit to the vitamins I have taken than to all of the advice that I have recieved myself from drug companies over the years. For me, simply taking a good quality general multivitamin and mineral has made a huge difference over the years with many, many health issues. I also sleep better!
My understanding of this, is that if it passes then vitamins and minerals will be considered toxins, and our ability to purchase them will be greatly limited compared to what it is now, without a doctors prescriptions.
Now if you need a doctors prescription to buy them, where do you think you will have to go to buy them? Who would provide drug stores with the prescription vitamins?
So who do you think is behind this whole thing?
There is only a few weeks left to stop the FDA from aproving this.
and then when you are ready to sign the petition go here.
Like anything, before you act on anything above do your own research and make your own decisions. Ask your doctor or chiropractor for advice before embarking on a vitamin regime.
