I just received this article from one of my autism subscriptions! A positive step to this measure….
“Dear Autism Coach Customer,
Thanks to all of you who contacted FDA and/or your representatives concerning the New Supplement Ingredient Guidelines and shared this information with others!
According to the Alliance for Natural Health, hundreds of thousands of people emailed their congressmen and senators and 20,000 people telephoned their congressional representatives to voice opposition to the FDA’s proposed New Supplement Ingredient Guidelines. To read this update, please go to: http://www.anh-usa.org/fda-violates-federal-law/
The Alliance for Natural Health organization is so encouraged by the outpouring of protest against the FDA’s New Supplement Ingredient Guidelines, that they are going further and asking for the New Supplement Ingredient guidelines to be repealed!
Knowing our amazing community of activists who have done so much to help our kids, I’m willing to bet the autism community was in large part responsible for spreading the word resulting in this enormous outpouring of feedback to our representatives!
Another example of autism activism at work on a national level is Republican presidential candidate, Texas Governor Rick Perry, losing popularity because of his initiative to force every girl in Texas to receive the Gardasil vaccine for the human papilloma virus, which has unfortunately harmed thousands of girls since its introduction (for more information visit http://truthaboutgardasil.org/).
Based upon this enormous outpouring of protest, it is evident that the majority of people in the U.S. are on our side and are every bit as concerned about how our leaders and federal agencies are making decisions that endanger our health and the future of our children.
We have an election year coming up. Even if an incumbent representative of your district or state is in your pollitical party of preference, if they are working against the best interests of the autism community and you cannot dissuade them, why not run against them and help to reform your party? Even if you do not win, you will be doing a public service to bring to the attention of the public issues of concern to the autism community (such as the FDA’s attack on the supplement industry and the government’s cover-up of the link between vaccines and autism). Who wouldn’t vote for someone who runs on a ticket of supporting cleaning up the environment and food supply and improving the overall health of the nation? Perhaps even local autism parent’s groups might consider picking and supporting someone from their group to run for office.
Thanks again to all of you who took action! If we keep advocating for what is important to us, there’s no limit to what we can accomplish!”
