Help us gain co-sponsors for the Free Speech about Science
Act, HR 1364!
Consumers are largely kept in the dark about the potential
health benefits of foods and supplements. Why? Because current law makes it
illegal for food and supplement producers to share this information.
Congressmen Jason Chaffetz (R–UT) and Jared Polis (D–CO)
have introduced the Free Speech about Science Act (HR 1364). This landmark legislation
protects basic free speech rights, ends censorship of science, and enables the
natural health products community to share peer-reviewed scientific findings
about natural health products with the public.
At first sight, this might not appear to be a blockbuster
bill. But look closely. If it passes, Free Speech about Science has the
potential to transform the healthcare field by educating the public about the
real science behind natural health. This is a small bill with vast potential
For this very reason, the bill will have opposition. It will
be opposed by the FDA, which flatly forbids food and supplement manufacturers
from mentioning any link between a product and a health condition. This is true

of Harvard and other highly respected universities.
It will also be opposed by drug companies fearing
competition from natural health approaches based on diet, dietary supplements,
and lifestyle. Please do not let these special interests stop this bill. Please
contact your representative today. Ask him or her to co-sponsor this vital
