Today, you have the right to choose which vitamins, herbs, and supplements are best for you and your family. But your freedom to choose these products and your access to alternative and complementary treatment is under attack in Congress. Please donate to Citizens for Health today so that we can protect your rights and keep you informed.
Citizens for Health has a successful track record empowering consumers and defending your rights in law and policy. In 1994, we helped educate consumers and coordinate over 2.5 million letters to Congress supporting The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA). Consumers won that hard-fought battle thanks to millions of people like you, who believe in their right to obtain and take dietary supplements.
We need your help again. Two weeks ago, Senators McCain and Dorgan introduced a bill called “The Dietary Supplement Safety Act ” which, if passed, will repeal key sections of DSHEA. Among other things it would give the FDA full discretion and power to compile a discreet list of supplements allowed to remain on the market while banning all others.

Your donation today will help us educate and activate millions of people and protect your rights. We are posting frequent updates about the McCain and Food Safety bills at www.citizens.org, and will keep you informed.
The McCain bill, along with The Food Safety Bill (S. 510), represent a systematic attack on individual rights that directly impact how and what we choose to eat, prevent & treat disease and, promote our individual and family’s well-being. Indeed, in FDA hands, the authority created by these bills is likely to make both food and supplements less safe, less effective and much more costly.
