I decided to have a look at SB 722. I see the poster who put the original message here is a busy beaver on newsgroups. Here is a supplements biz web site and their take on the bill: http://www.metagenics.com/company/politicalaction/t1background.asp I chose this one on purpose so not to be accused of bias. Even with the supplements biz spin, it is clear the bill address the problems supplementss have had, as reported in the newws. It asks the biz to report serious events from taking a supplements, to keep and make available if asked by the FD adverse effects reported but not serious, serious is summerized on the web page and are just common sense. If a serious event happens the FDA may ask a supplements biz to show the stuff is safe. The bill will have a closer look at stuff containing stimulants, also defined, these products are those most heard of in news accounts of injury and deaths. Now to hear the biz, you wouldn't be able to get vit c anymore and supplementss would be banned, poppy cock. The level of regulation is not even up to the level of what an aspirin at the drugstore requires. Come on, give us a break, the biz now has an almost free hand and wants to continue it's free open selling suckers, ah I really meant marketing, products which have been shown to often not contain what is on the label, has no way to know if it works, and doesn't even permit even the weak provisions in the bill to say something about being safe. The current law makes the suckers the lab rats, ifenough people are injured or die the FDA can then take action.
