Health Freedom Threat Alert: DHEA may be outlawed!

DHEA threatened again -- instead of promoting freedom of choice in healthcare; instead of defending our right as adults to use whatever natural food products we choose to manage our own health, instead of reforming the out-of-control FDA, Congress is at it again... treating us like subjects to be controlled instead of free citizens of a free society.

Truly "When Congress is in session no person's life and liberty are safe..."

Subject: Action Alert--Stop Congress from Restricting Access to DHEA Action Alert--Stop Congress from Restricting Access to DHEA

Your access to DHEA is in jeopardy! The Senate is considering a bill, S.762, to classify DHEA as an anabolic steroid, adding it to the list ofcontrolled substances and removing it from the market. H.R. 1249 is thecompanion bill in the U.S. House of Representatives. Your immediate help is needed to keep this safe and effective dietary supplement legal and accessible. DHEA is not an anabolic steroid. It is a naturally occurring hormone that hasa wide range of benefits, including maintaining muscle strength and strongbones, boosting immunity, and improving mood and sleep patterns. Furtherstudies suggest that DHEA may be helpful for such conditions as obesity,cancer and Alzheimers disease.

DHEA dietary supplements, which have been on the market for over 20 years, are derived from a plant in the wild yam family; for more information. -

We need your help to keep DHEA legal. Send a message to Congress asking yourSenators and Representative to oppose S. 762 and H.R. 1249 and any amendmentto restrict access to DHEA to minors. Congress should not restrict access toa dietary supplement that has given health to millions of Americans. Take action now! "

If you want some background see my article on how I kept DHEA legal in 1995.
