    • On September 20, 2011, by LupronVictim - Oppose Heath Safety Threats by FDA & Pharma "Dietary Supplement Labeling Act" FDA & Pharma Want to Ban Our Supplements Please prevent that the FDA bans our supplements! Why is it possible that the FDA knowingly allows Abbott to make people permanently disabled with Lupron, but wants to forbid vitamins? Greedy evil pharma like Abbott should not be allowed to intentionally make us sick and then forbid us to get/stay healthy with vitamins and supplements, recommended by our responsible doctors! Many people are outraged by the irresponsible FDA and dangerous, evil greedy pharma. The FDA's draft guidance flies in the face of the original Congressional intent of the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act: The guidance turns what was meant to be a simple notification system for new dietary ingredients into a pre-approval scheme that Congress did not intend to create.

    • On September 20, 2011, by LupronVictim - Congress recognized that dietary supplements are natural ingredients and therefore inherently safer than drugs and chemical food ingredients. It did not intend that the FDA would have the power to approve or reject dietary supplements. This act is violation of the law. See important article and video: RED ALERT: FDA Set to Ban Your Supplements Pharmaceutical Industry Profit Threatened By Low Cost Supplements http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/09/13/fda-to-ban-new-supplements-and-classify-them-like-food-preservatives.aspx

    • On September 20, 2011, by LupronVictim - PHARMA WANTS US TO BE SICK Greedy big pharma want to prevent that we keep healthy with vitamins. They want us to be sick, try to make us dependent on their drugs and sell us their overpriced drugs. Many drugs are dangerous and ineffective, which kill and disable thousands of people. No person ever became disabled from a vitamin tablet. We, the people, do not want to be enslaved by pharma. Abbott, convicted criminals, wrongfully gained billions of dollars by making our people, children, men and women permanently disabled with Lupron. Lupron is a dangerous and ineffective drug, a nightmare injection, that destroyed thousands of people's lives, killed and disabled.
