    What the hell are John McCain and Brian Dorgan thinking?

    S.3002 The Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010.

    This bill making it's way through the Senate will effectively eliminate nearly all nutritional supplements that many Americans rely on for their health. The Bill restricts products that make people healthier and will cause many foods to see a significant increase in price as new government regulations are put in place. None of the regulations are geared towards the safety of the consumers of these products.

    It's the first step towards the government telling you what you can and cannot eat....

    Your post doesn't match up with the actual bill. CUrrently all those herbal supplements never have to prove that they actually work, its pseudoscience. THey dont' even have to show its safe to consume or reacts with other medications or herbs.

    Pharmaceuticals have to have some level of testing to show that the drug can actually improve the disorder over the placebo effect. Herbal supplements do not, nor do they even are known to work. So since those herbal supplements have never been proven to actually improve anybody's health other than placebo effect, I doubt people's health are at risk. THey have just been duped by invalidated claims for years. They don't even have to tell other's what's in them. So i think this is a good thing. How many people died or had health issues from ephedra and other supplements?

    The difference between Juan McLouse's big government in charge of everything "conservatism" and Obama's big government in charge of everything liberalism was exactly nil.

    The sooner he is retired the better.

    it's a lie, "herbal supplements" are not foods, although they are unregulated like foods.

    So if I tale an Omega 3 capsule containing flax seed oil and fish oil, I have not consumed a food, but organic compounds that contribute nothing, are not absorbed?

    This is all being done to harmonize our laws with Codex Alimentarius Part of FAO and WHO food, drug, chemical and veterinary standards activities. Just like we did with universal health care.

    Our accounting system is switching from GAAP to IFRF, we are coming under the control of the UN, WTO, IMF - WORLD BANK & coming soon a new world currency & loss of property rights, voting rights, guns, & liberties.

    Doesn't everyone want one world utopia? Doesn't everyone want one world order where everyone except the chosen ones follow the same rules?

    I'm not sure that these regulations are for vitamins and known beneficial supplements, but herbal blends. We know Omega 3 flax seed oil has benefits, many of the "herbal supplements" are never tested to prove they do what they claim

    Of course YOU think it's a good idea. I've not seen any idea involving greater government involvement in something that YOU didn't think was a good idea. The march towards the nanny state continues.

    Yeah, go die from your poison herbal supplements, sounds wonderful. Damn the gov't for setting regulations so the corporations don't fuck us. Don't believe they do, go look at history. Look what it was like prior to even having an FDA. Life isn't a fairy tale.

    other than the typical whining about big gov't, do you have any arguments as to why this is a bad idea, regulating potential poisons and preventing people from being defrauded out of their money believing claims that are not proven?

    How do you know the corporations won't fuck us with Codex. The corporations control it like they control the government who doesn't listen to voters. US citizens will have even less of a voice with the WHO.
