October 1, 2008 - This week is the last week in which we can try to influence an assembly committee to oppose the proposed Dietitians Monopoly Bill, A2933 . This bill has already passed in the Assembly Health and Senior Services Committee last month on the 15th and one more committee must pass it before it is sent to the senate for their committee approvals - where we will have to begin all over again to oppose it. If successful in the senate we will hold a rally before the final vote as our last effort .

Next Monday , October 6th, 2008, the final assembly committee to hear Bill A2933 will be the Assembly Appropriations Committee. Please contact all the appropriations committee members listed below and ask them to oppose bill A2 933. Call them and Email them -- information below.

Tell the assembly people that this bill is not only exclusionary and making natural health businesses and practitioners illegal , but will be expensive for the state to monitor and enforce. Remind them that when t his bill passed in Ohio that about 800 practitioners were initially arrested and hundreds of lives and businesses were destroyed by those who had to enforce the bill. There are no practitioners left in Ohio other than dietitians and few health shops other than the medically approved GNC.

Please print the below poster /handout an d pass it around, post it and forward it to all you know . Ask them to contact by phone and Email the committee members listed on it. Don ’ t forget to sign the petition at www.AmericansRightToBeInformed.com if you have not done so. Thank you, Dian

This bill designates the American Dietetic Association (ADA) as the only legal entity allowed to set standards for food, weight-loss, supplements and nutrition.

The ADA chooses the foods served in schools, hospitals and nursing homes. They receive million s from sponsors like these: Wendy’s, McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Crisco, PepsiCo, etc.

Are these the nutritional experts you seek?

Where can we find out if this passed?

The current status is that it passed the Assembly health committee.

1. There's a demonstration being planned for Oct. 16 at the Gov's office.

2. People will be attending the Assembly finance committee meeting Oct. 20 to testify as to the high cost (est: up to a half million a year) of regulation.

3. The opposition alliance has crafted amendments to the bill to exempt nutrition!

4. The Gov says he won't sign new spending at the present time.

Contact Dian Freeman at abouthealth@att.net to be added to the contact list for these efforts.
