Subject: URGENT! Surprise Amendment Undermines DSHEA!

TAKE ACTION TODAY! CLICK HERE!

Senator Durbin is atempting to attach an amendment to the Defense Budget
bill today. This is an underhanded attempt to undermine our health rights.

URGENT! THE SENATE COULD VOTE ON THIS AMENDMENT AS EARLY AS 5PM TODAY.

Speficially, the Durbin amendment will:

*hold dietary supplements to a higher level of scrutiny than prescription
drugs, over-the-counter drugs and food additives

*undermine key elements of DSHEA and lead to reduced access to beneficial
dietary supplements.

URGENT ACTION REQUIRED! Visit
http://www.healthactioncenter.org/action/index.asp?step=2&item=19277
to send a
letter to Your Senator today.

Contact your Senator and tell them to oppose this Amendment because:

*this is an attempt to pass laws impacting the health of millions of
Americans by bypassing the regular legislative channels and the Health
Committee where these issues belong.

*this amendment has not had the proper consideration and is not germaine to
the Defense Authorization Bill.

*DSHEA gives the FDA ample authority to regulate dietary supplements.

Take 60 seconds to send a letter today urging your Senator to oppose Senate
Amendment 3225. Click here.

And, due to the urgent nature of this issue, please take another minute to
call your Senators directly. Simply call the Senate Switchboard at
202-224-3121. Tell them your state and they will connect you to your
Senator. Tell your Senator to oppose Senate Amendment 3225 in the Defense
Authorization Bill.

"hold dietary supplements to a higher level of scrutiny than prescription drugs"

You mean it's going to take 10 years of clinical studies and a billion dollars to bring a new vitamin tablet to market? Call me a fool, but I have a hard time believing that...
