ACTION ALERT: We are in agreement with our fellow health-freedom fighters at the Alliance for Natural Health USA (ANH-USA), who have correctly noted that Americans are increasingly subject to rules and decrees that are undemocratically issued from federal agencies like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
We at CFH support passage of The Guidance Clarity Act of 2021, which would require the following to be published with every guidance:
“The contents of this document do not have the force and effect of law and do not, of themselves, bind the public or the agency. This document is intended only to provide clarity to the public regarding existing requirements under the law or agency policies.”
As ANH-USA notes: “There are [thousands] of agency rules and hundreds of guidance documents issued each year, and, as a result, the federal government is inappropriately and undemocratically injecting itself into our personal lives, our businesses, and our communities—and if we don’t like some of these rules, there isn’t much we can do to challenge them. We must reform the system to prevent these intrusions.”
The rules cover wide areas—such as homeopathy and dietary supplement ingredients—and they are usually restrictive when it comes to natural health products and modalities.
The bill has passed in the House but needs to pass in the Senate, where it is listed as Senate Bill 533. Please write to your Senators and ask them to sign on and support S. 533, The Guidance Clarity Act of 2021.
