Legislative efforts to empower consumers of healthy food and dietary supplements

Current and proposed FDA regulations concerning healthy food and dietary supplements hurt both the consumers & producers of these important goods. In this podcast, Darrell Rogers of the Alliance for Natural Health & host Michael Ostrolenk discuss two pending bills in DC that will effect the ability of Americans to improve their health through these non-pharmaceutical methods.  H.R. 1364, the Free Speech About Science Act, will allow consumers to more easily find scientific studies about supplements by lifting the FDA prohibition against manufacturers referencing this information.   In addition, Darrell talks about the dangerously vague sections of S. 216, the Leahy Food Safety Bill, that either need to be clarified or completely removed in order to protect supplement and food producers from unjustified Federal prosecution.
