An interesting article which highlights just why we need to keep fighting for our right to keep high dose, effective, non-prescription supplements on the shelves.
Fish Oil Now Available By Prescription! By William Faloon
by William Faloon
For decades, the pharmaceutical industry has sought to limit competition by trying to get the FDA to regulate high-potency supplements as drugs. It was only because of intense consumer backlash that Congress passed legislation that protected the free sale of most supplements in the United States.
For those who have battled to protect health freedom, the introduction of an overpriced prescription fish oil drug provides absolute proof that every letter to Congress was well worth sending. I am enormously gratified that Americans were perceptive enough to not let the drug industry (and federal government) trample our liberties under the guise of “protecting” us against “unproven” products.
