In order for us to stay healthy we must become political! or we will lose the tools we need to save ourselves from their poisons.
Make a point of contacting your reps regularly and let them know what you think.
This is where you can go to contact your officials. They have a box on the form to click where they will notify you of how they voted on all issuess! Thats a good service!! You must register for this service of sending letters to your reps. but it is worth the time and no other cost.

Dear [recipient name was inserted here],
Please oppose any amendments to the Restoring American Financial Stability Act of 2010 (S. 3217) that would give the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) power to impose new regulations without prior Congressional approval. The FTC will abuse this power and use it to deny my free access to Dietary Supplements.
Congress stripped the FTC of this authority decades ago after the FTC
repeatedly abused it.
Giving the FTC power to promulgate new regulations would mean that five
unelected commissioners would be able to issue binding rules in a wide
range of areas, including the regulation of dietary supplements, an area
of special concern to me that is currently governed by the Food and Drug
If this legislation is passed, there is widespread fear that many
supplements will disappear or that Americans will be unable to afford
their supplements and will succumb to a host of deficiency-related
I ask that Rep. Waxman’s drug company-favoring language not be added to the Senate version of the so-called Wall Street Reform Act and not be
included in any later House/Senate version of the bill.
Supplements are already sufficiently regulated by the FDA under DSHEA. We should not give the FTC power to circumvent DSHEA by adding new, onerous, and unneeded requirements.
Please vote against any amendment to the Restoring American Financial
Stability Act of 2010 (S. 3217) that would once again give the FTC power
to impose new regulations without prior Congressional approval.
