The Dietary Supplement Access and Awareness Act (H.R. 3156), introduced by Representatives Davis (D-CA), Waxman (D-CA), and Dingell (D-MI), this month, would place trusted vitamins, minerals, and herbs under unprecedented and unwarranted scrutiny.
If H.R. 3156 becomes law, 70 percent of dietary supplements currently on the market would become subject to burdensome new regulations some equivalent to those required for prescription drugs driving up supplement prices for everyone and forcing well known dietary supplements to disappear from store shelves.
Agent Supplements Already Regulated?
In 1994, Congress took an important step forward with passage of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) - federal legislation that requires manufacturers of all dietary supplements to ensure the products they put on the market are safe.
The law holds manufacturers directly accountable for product safety and demands truth in labeling and advertising. These consumer safeguards give the U.S. Food and Drug Administration all the authority it needs to police the marketplace and keep bad products from being sold.
