S.1310 Dietary Supplement Labeling Act of 2011
From: Wendy Wilson, Herbalist
Senator Dick Durbin D-IL is behind S.1310 Dietary Supplement Labeling Act of 2011. This bill, if passes, will give the FDA power to pull all supplements off the market that have been formulated after 1994.
The FDA is also working to dismantle the dietary supplement market as we know it.
You can read more here:
Manufacturers and distributors of these products will need to fill out a NDI form (New Dietary Ingredient) for every herb ingredient in a product. The product will not be allowed to be sold until the FDA approves the NDI applications and can take 75 days or longer. This will shut down the supplement companies and allow big pharma to take over and fill the demand with substandard products to keep the masses unhealthy and the costs for these items will be more.
People should contact Sen. Dick Durbin and remind him that nearly 800,000 people die from FDA approved prescription drugs annually and the FDA does nothing to protect the public.
No supplement has ever created such casualties.
People need to voice their disapproval on this attack on supplements and call the senator and the FDA now!
If you don’t stand up, your favorite supplements will be gone in less than 12 months.

FDA unleashes end game scheme to outlaw virtually all dietary supplements formulated after 1994
Wednesday, July 06, 2011 by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger Editor of NaturalNews.com
(NaturalNews) In the wake of hundreds of dietary supplements recently being outlawed across the EU, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has quietly unleashed a regulatory scheme that, if fully implemented, could ban virtually all dietary supplements in the USA that were formulated after 1994.
That means nearly all superfoods, multivitamins, detox supplements, and medicinal herbal products we have all come to depend on to prevent disease and boost our immune health could soon be stripped from store shelves and outlawed across the nation. I call it the “End Game” of the FDA’s war against humanity: Phase one was the enforcement of nutritional ignorance by threatening and raiding companies that dared to make truthful health claims on their own websites (http://www.naturalnews.com/021791.html). Phase two involves “nuking” the entire dietary supplements industry by simply denying the use of nearly all the ingredients presently used in supplement products.
FDA goes Fukushima on dietary supplements
Importantly, nearly all vitamin and supplement ingredients could soon be banned under the FDA’s new NDI rules becausevery few supplement ingredients can be conclusively shown to have been widely used BEFORE 1994. As the ANH points out, the FDA recently banned a common form ofvitamin B6by claiming the vitamin was a “drug” that was never “approved” for use in supplements (http://www.anh-usa.org/when-is-a-vi…).
That story is also covered here on NaturalNews:http://www.naturalnews.com/025606_v…
The upshot of all this is that by issuing new guidelines on the NDI requirements, the FDA can now essentiallydisallowthe use of virtually all supplement ingredients that exist in the market today. As ANH warns:
“We fear that they will use this power to ban any supplement innovation unless the supplement is turned into a drug and brought through the drug approval process. Since nobody can afford to pay for the new drug approval process if the substance is not patented, and supplements generally already exist in nature and cannot therefore be patented, to require full new drug approval is to ensure that there will be no new supplements. This should suit the drug industry very well and, based on past behavior, the FDA as well.”
Supplement companies would need to seek FDA approval for all their formulations
Through this clever trick with NDI rules, the FDA can now position itself as the gatekeeper for all supplement approvals. Far from merely being a requirement to “notify” the FDA of the use of new ingredients, NDI rules essentially subject supplements toapprovalfrom the FDA.
As the FDA has proven time and time again, it can simply refuse to approve anything used in natural products. Even today, the FDA refuses to approve walnuts for preventing heart disease, or vitamin C preventing scurvy. The FDA won’t even admit that vitamin D can prevent rickets! Imagine the difficulty of trying to get the FDA to approve cherry extracts, or Chinese medicine herbs, or glucosamine for that matter. Nearly all the top supplements you’ve come to enjoy and value over the last two and a half decades are now threatened with being utterly outlawed and stripped off the shelves.
The FDA, in other words, is now gearing up togut the natural products industry, bankrupt vitamin retailers and enslave the American people in a system of failed chemical medicine where they now have zero options for natural nutritional therapies. This, of course, would cause chronic disease rates to explode across the nation, greatly enriching the pharmaceutical industry and cancer treatment centers, all of which must be cheering these proposed new rules as a great way to recruit new patients who can then be milked for profits.
