Monsanto's lackeys in the House are going to try to sneak the Monsanto Protection Act back into the must-pass federal budget. Let's quickly do something about it and prevent this from happening.

It was removed from the Senate version, but is in the version the House passed already. The danger is that the rider could survive the conference committee version.

Keep up pressure on Congress to get this thing OUT of the bill that is sent to the President.

Thanks. I get so tired of having to sign petitions for the same thing all the time, but they are sure persistent in trying to ruin our food supply and keep us in the dark about it.

Just as soon as one petition or bill is set alright, they come up with another. I appreciate the several advocacy organizations that keep us posted in this matter.

Got this in an email:



September 27, 2013

A likely-to-pass federal bill with a new and dangerous provision may be voted upon this weekend, and we need your help to amend it!

The Senate compounding bill we have been telling you about has now been scrapped because of the outcry from consumers like you. That is the good news. They started over from scratch.

Here’s the bad news. They slipped in a new and very bad provision. This provision says that your doctor can only order a vitamin or mineral or other nutrient IV if the ingredients are already pre-approved or in some unrelated, synthetic, and FDA approved drug. This is outrageous.

More bad news. The same bill will likely be voted on in the House right after the Senate without changes.

IVs (nutrients injected into your veins) are very, very important for natural medicine. Please don’t let them make some really important compounded IV medications illegal! Someone you love may desperately need them.

Please read more about this terrible provision on our website, and take action immediately!

Take-Action1

P.S.: The Senate has just passed the Continuing Resolution without the Monsanto Rider! This is a tremendous victory—and is entirely thanks to your support. Let's now get this new threat dropped from the compounding bill!
