Proposed Herbs and Supplements Ban

This is very important for those of you that choose to use herbs and supplements in your life. Well, very soon, you may lose that right as have the Europeans. Yes, the Europeans will have to go to a doctor to get a prescription to take herbs and supplements beyond the basic amount, or at all! Recently, a form of this bill was passed by the European Union and it's on it's way here by way of the FDA, 1/3 of which, is funded by guess who, Big Pharma! See, many of Big Pharma's patents are expiring, new drugs aren't being developed, and many people are self-medicating with natural, they want a part of that market. Go to or and sign the petition (or write your own letter) that will be forwarded to your Reps & Senators in Congress.
