Defeat CAFTA and save your supplements. You must ACT NOW!
ACT NOW to preserve your access to nutrients, effective vitamins and minerals, and nutritional medicine! We have leverage - it's very close, perhaps within 1 vote!
Listen to Len & Joe (Ask the Pharmacist Group) discuss why this is an important issue for all of us!
CAFTA - BAD for jobs, small businesses, health stores, health freedom
In the fine print the US is being signed up to global regulations that override US supplement laws.
The outcome for CAFTA is up for grabs, as the vote is very close in the House of Representatives.
This is a unique opportunity to get our issue before Members of Congress who have not heard of Codex. The more people who call, the better.
A much larger number of calls are needed to delay CAFTA.
Contact Congress today
Call your Representatives' office
Call 1-202-224-3121 weekdays or call your representatives' local district office. If possible, take the time to visit their local district office in person.
Email your Representative. We've provided a link to a letter that you can edit to make it easy for you.
It's close! You can influence the decision.
Please ask your Representative to make arrangements with staff to remain vigilant. The treaty could be introduced to the House in the middle of the night or in the early morning.
It will take a lot of pressure, and many more calls and letters to raise this issue of the international threat to supplements. Many in Congress have not yet heard of Codex.
If opposition succeeds in delaying CAFTA, it could still come back for a vote later.
Calls need to number in the millions if we are to make this a 'third rail' issue. It is going to take sustained involvement by the public over a long time, to achieve adequate status for natural medicine.
Bet you didn't know this:
Thanks............. I'm working on the August one right now and will soon have automail updates.....
No I didn't. But the WTO didn't prevent it, either. That's the point I'm contesting.
Remember, people remember what the FDA tried to do with supplements years ago. It took an act of Congress to reign them in. There is a precedent for the skepticism behavior, imo. Nowadays, we have Supreme Court Justices that refer to internatioal law when making decisions. Is it that much of a leap?
"Who cares about vitamins?"
I for one believe the ME'ers suffer from malnutrition, which has caused them to morph into rabid dogs. They need more bacon, eggs and ham...IMO
Pointy-headed elitism? Zheesh.
I'm simply acknowledging that we are nowhere near getting to the point of everyone being educated enough to evaluate health and treatment options, thanks to government schools and negiligent parents. There's nothing elitist about that. It's simply recognizing an unfortunate reality.
I'd appreciate it if you could eliminate the baseless personal attacks.
