Time to act…..

  • Illinois Senator Durbin is planning to reintroduce his supplement bill, the Dietary Supplement Labeling Act (S 1310), which would grant more power to the FDA to regulate dietary supplements like they were drugs; Durbin first introduced S 1310 in 2011, but it failed miserably, as have many of his other attempts to pass laws attacking the supplement industry
  • Durbin’s citing of the 2013 GAO Dietary Supplements report, which details adverse effects reports (AERs) associated with supplements, backfires in that it demonstrates just how safe supplements are, compared to vaccines and drugs
  • Based on the GAO report, there were 488 times as many adverse reactions reported for prescription drugs as from dietary supplements, and there is no evidence supporting the claim that adverse reactions to supplements are underreported; data from poison control centers confirms their safety
  • The financial burden created by Durbin’s proposed legislation will likely cause many supplement companies to go under; and, as a result, the cost of your supplements will likely skyrocket and, more importantly, your supplement choices will be limited
  • Manufacturers are migrating products previously classified as “supplements” into the category “food products” in order to sidestep the tighter regulations imposed on supplements, and this loophole is completely ignored by the Durbin bill
