This senator just came on record as wanting to classify them as legal drugs, and more (slippery slope). His bill is basically designed to put the supplement manufacturers out of business. It's just more over regulation that none of us need.

You might want to let your senators know how you feel (below).

Your efforts are appreciated and the warning, repeated tries at this are dire, indeed.

I hope everyone will sign the petitions, at the very least. It's so important.

Those of you in Illinois. You need to vote out senator Durbin. He is a constant source of this type of assault on supplements.

Alliance for Natural Health is a good organization to work with and get alerts regarding this issue and other similar ones.

Amen, D Bergy!!

And didn't Orin Hatch (Utah) retire? He was the consummate advocate of natural supplements and voted in the interest of the public.

Those in Illinois need to get a referendum going to limit terms of our senators, representatives, and governor.

The pharmaceutical countries (misspelling intended - not companies) HAVE indeed legally required the removal of specific "nutrient supplements" from health food stores to protect THEIR Rx's which are

nothing but the same.

FACT. They are a HUGE "lobby".

Allergy to peanuts? Here's a good one - have to pause for a few minutes to retrieve info.

Back...Want to know why more kids these days have peanut allergies? Lookie here:

Brazil nuts (allergens are proteins):

“Solution Structure, Copper Binding and Backbone Dynamics of Recombinant Ber e 1–The Major Allergen from Brazil Nut”

http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0046435

Abstract

Due mainly to its extremely high content of sulphur amino acids, Ber e 1 protein, the major allergen from Brazil nut, has attracted much scientific and press attention.

Ber e 1 was the main target protein in early biotechnology transgenic work, in early processing studies of plant storage proteins, in plant vacuolar targeting studies and as the main protein

in early nutritional supplementation experiments.

Ber e 1 was also one of the first food allergens to be

unintentionally transferred from one plant to another

and was involved in the first reported case of systemic allergic reaction caused by a food allergen transferred in semen

In this review, many of the Ber e 1 unique biotechnological and structural functions are discussed with a particular emphasis on its use as model protein for studies of intrinsic allergenicity of food proteins.

http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs10529-011-0831-1

"Unintentionally transferred" and now the protein is in semen?

I am sooooooo riled up because when I took my mom to her doc and the pharm. rep was there talking about taking him on another deep sea fishing trip (I live in Florida), I was really upset. I watched older patients after older patients go out of his office with "free" bags of new drugs.

God's honest truth.
