Health Freedom Amendment to Rein in FDA Power Abuses
The most exciting provisions of this amendment concern the claims about the effects of foods and dietary supplements on health-related conditions and a prohibition of employees of the Food and Drug Administration from carrying firearms and making arrests without warrants.
I got a heads up from a fellow Weston A. Price Foundation Chapter Leader from Kentucky at the St. Louis Regional Conference last week that this amendment was in the works, and only just learned that it had hit the floor of Congress late last night.
Please contact both your US Senators TODAY and urge them to vote “YES” to Senator Paul’s amendment to S. 3187.
Also, ask your Senators to vote “NO” on Senator Durbin’s amendment to S. 3187 which would greatly restrict access to dietary supplements and was submitted to water down Senator Paul’s amendment.
The vote on this amendment may happen as early as Thursday, May 24, 2012 so please do not delay.
Below is a short video clip of a true American hero, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, introducing this legislation for the benefit of all Americans, particularly those small farmers who have suffered so unjustly at the hands of the FDA which has adopted the habit in recent years of raiding small farms without a warrant and arresting farmers with no due process.
This gross abuse of power can stop if this amendment passes, so please make that phone call or send that email (both would be better) right away!
