    For anyone who is opposed to Senator McCains proposed bill, Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010 (DSSA) you can go to Life Extension Foundation where they have an email you can send to your state and federal representatives asking them to vote against the proposal.

    Tiger is trying to be helpful and you just can't keep yourself from spouting off and dishing out insults and ad hominem attacks, completely unprovoked. Ignore List.

    Your statement re health freedoms being threatened by FDA regulation of supplements. I guess it's just a matter of whose ox is being gored. On one hand, you want Gov't control of every aspect of our health EXCEPT as it pertains to supplements! I feel just the opposite. Hands off our health care system,however,supplements are,just what the word implies an addition to our dietary needs,should they be lacking. FDA oversees quality of food,why not nutritional supplements?

    I'll post a link to the McCain web page. I respect the views of the Life Extension Foundation, so I was comfortable posting their point of view.

    I'm also a member of LEF. Love their magazine. I try and buy most of my vitamins and supplements from them as they are the one company that I totally trust as far as quality products. And I like the fact that ALL of their information comes from peer reviewed medical journals from around the world.

    O.k. I don't know a lot about the flouride issue,I'm just not getting why your'e so resistant to some oversight where supplements are concerned. I've already posted a health scare I experienced just a few months ago. Something in that supplement was making me sick! You keep saying you've never had problems,but your just one of millions taking supplements,I doubt I'm the only one whose had the adverse reaction to a supplement. Sixpac,our healthcare sysytem needs reform,true. Tort reform and giving citizens the ability to shop across state lines for coverage would be a good start. This has been suggested by the Repubs. and more conservative Dems as well,so far they have met with resitance to this. Why? Because the trial lawyers are in Obama's back pocket. By the way,who do you think will be making your health care decisions,with a gov't plan?? Just another bureaucrat,pushing pencils and paper!~~~Jeanne
