On February 4, 2010 Senator John McCain introduced the Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010 into Congress. The bill was read twice and referred to the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions.

The intent of the bill is to regulate dietary supplements.

The bill firstly defines a “Dietary Supplement Facility” as any business or operation engaged in manufacturing, packaging, holding, distributing, labeling, or licensing a dietary supplement for consumption in the United States.

A dietary supplement facility shall register with the Secretary the name and address of each facility at which, and all trade names under which, the dietary supplement registrant conducts business. At the time of registration, the dietary supplement registrant shall also file with the Secretary a list of all dietary supplements manufactured, packaged, held, distributed, labeled, or licensed by the facility. Such list shall be prepared in such form and manner as the Secretary may prescribe, and shall be accompanied by a full list of the ingredients contained in each dietary supplement, and a copy of the labeling used by the facility for each dietary supplement.

The registrant shall update the registration annually.

Evidence of Compliance- A dietary supplement facility or retailer shall, prior to manufacturing, packaging, holding, distributing, labeling, or licensing the dietary supplement, obtain adequate written evidence that the product is registered and requirements have been met. Evidence of compliance shall be available upon request by the Secretary.

Any person who manufacturers, packages, holds, distributes, labels, or licenses a dietary supplement in violation may, in addition to other penalties imposed be fined not more than twice the gross profits or other proceeds derived from the manufacture, packaging, holding, distribution, labeling, or license of such dietary supplement.’.

Non-serious adverse events during the preceding year shall be submitted to the Secretary annually. Records shall be maintained for 3 years.

    first off….i would like to thank kevin trudeau for standing up to our pathitic worthless government by telling the truth. here is my story. i am 59 years of age. i am 100% cured of schizophrenia, 100% cured of bipolar disorder adhd and obsessive compulsive disorder. thats right i said cured. i have done every kind of therapy known to man. the ones that worked were the ones i was told to stay away from. the (alternative therapies). psychiatry is a joke. the medical profession needs a major overhaul and i will see to that. i have been through electroshock therapy and was on heavy doses of thorazine, milarill, dilantin, ritilin, troffinil for 10 years. these drugs almost destroyed me. i have been drug free and not seen a doctor since 1976. the number one most important thing i did was feed my body and mind with nutrients. i dont mean just a one a day vitamin, i mean giving my body what it needs according to my bloodwork. the health food store is my savior. this not only saved my life but helped me (cure) all of what was ailing me. supplementation of nutrients gives my body and mind what it needs to funtion properly. god put these nutrients on this earth for us to utalize and our foolish government wants to take them away. i am on a mission to change things and expose the truth. for example the FDA label on the supplement packages.**this statement has not been evaluated by the food and drug administration. this product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease…. this is a boldface lie. on my journey to wellness i treated and cured all the disease that was invading my body both mentally and physically. the pharmaceutical industry is what needs to be banned not supplements. senator mcCain and whoever else is involved should be asshamed of themselves for such a stupid move. i am doing everything possible to stop these clowns from getting there way. thanks… steve horton port st lucie fl.

    you know, what’s really funny is how bad J mcCain looked at the end of his campaign in Nov 08.

    He looked like he needed Mega-Doses of High Quality Suppements.

    Please vote him out in Nov 2010
