Dear Senator xx,
Possibly you and I share a desire to stay as healthy as possible with a minimum of invasive medical interventions and drugs. As a health conscious consumer, I routinely exercise my right to access high potency, therapeutic dose nutritional supplements such as Vitamin C, zinc, Echinacea and fish oil to maintain my health and prevent, treat and cure diseases and conditions. As such, I am extremely distressed that there is a movement afoot to undermine the benefits of the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act (DSHEA), passed by Congress in 1994 when more than 52 millions Americans voiced their opinion to protect their access to nutritional supplements.
As your constituent I want to inform you of my very strong opposition to any version of legislation which restricts my Health Freedoms, including access to high potency, dietary supplements as foods. This includes HR 2510 (which unlike its DSHEA-friendly sister bill, HR 2485) would destroy DSHEA while spending over $200 million in the next 5 years to do so. It also includes any “Harmonization” legislation or Agency regulation making CODEX ALIMENTARUS regulations law or governing regulation in the United States. CODEX ALIMENTARIUS policy has already been ratified or is being implemented in the European Union (EU), Canada, and Australia/New Zealand. America will soon be put in a unique position globally to say a resounding “No!” to this thinly veiled attempt to wrap the agenda of huge corporate interests in a seemingly benevolent skin alleging to protect fair trade, public health, and individual safety while undermining both American Health and Health Freedom.
I am one of millions who strongly oppose such “protection” from nutritional supplements which, unlike drugs, have been shown to be free of significant inherent danger. CODEX’s suppressive policies are wrapped up in tens of thousands of pages that few have read or will be able to read prior to making it the law of our land if “Harmonization” is allowed to proceed. Under CODEX, it will be illegal for anyone, including licensed physicians, to offer, choose, dispense or use even the safest and most effective natural health remedies at clinically effective dosages.
I urge you to oppose CODEX ALIMNETARIUS
“Harmonization” legislation or any similar legislation in either house
for what it is: a major and very dangerous industrially- and
economically-driven threat to my health and health freedom (and to yours)
which will remove safe, effective
natural options that only help lower healthcare costs already bulging at
their fiscal seams.
Yours in Health and Freedom,
