Please note, crosspost and email all your friends the following article. We MUST get it to the front page.  The FDA is proposing classifying supplements, vitamins and even FRUIT JUICE as DRUGS.  This will not only deny people access to alternative care, but will result in a HUGE increase in ANIMAL EXPERIMENTS since the FDA requires it for all "drugs"  The commenting time frame is only until April 30th, so we MUST act quickly!!  I've sent alerts to all the animal welfare organizations I can think of, so hopefully, we can put a stop to this, but we need to move quickly!!  Note it and move it forward!

We need to fight this thing immediately. The FDA is taking public comment until April 30th. If we don't act on this, places like Covance, the animal testing lab, will have even MORE business coming their way since, as you all know, the FDA demands that all drugs be animal tested!!!!!!!! Please include this as a reason not to permit this to happen as it will serve the purpose of indicating both your displeasure with the proposed changes AND indicate that you don't believe in animal testing.

Be sure to cite Docket No. 2006D-0480. Draft Guidance for Industry on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Products and Their Regulation by the Food and Drug Administration. Tell them you support open access to vitamins, herbs, and supplements, and you do not want CAM to be regulated by the FDA.

Thanks so much!! 

Rebecca
