    WASHINGTON—Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has introduced the Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010, which would amend Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) and threaten parts of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), such as new dietary Ingredients (NDIs). Co-sponsored by Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.) and backed by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and several pro and amateur sports bodies, the bill aims “to more effectively regulate dietary supplements that may pose safety risks unknown to consumers.”

    Specifically, the bill calls for dietary supplement facilities to not only register its name and address, but also all trade names and a list of all dietary supplements “manufactured, packaged, held, distributed, labeled, or licensed by the facility.” Further, all ingredients contained in each supplement must also be disclosed in this registration, which is to be updated annually—any reformulations or new ingredients would be noted in such an update.

    On new dietary ingredients, the 75-notificaiton would say the same under the McCain bill, but ingredients marketed in the United States prior to Oct. 15, 1994 would no longer be automatically excluded from NDI requirements, but the Secretary would maintain a list of Accepted Dietary Ingredients. The bill also contains substantiation filing and evidence of compliance requirements, as well as monetary penalties for non-compliance.

    In addition to these changes, the McCain bill would change existing mandatory serious adverse event reporting (SAER) regulations to require minor averse events also be mandatorily reported.

    title is a little misleading dont you think, this reads just that they are going to have to prove their clames, and what really in the the stuff. Kind of like coming down here and buying steriods then claiming ooohhhh we did not know that was in it.

    Not misleading at all if one reads the entire article.

    This new bill will put an end to the sales of over the counter high dose vitamins, minerals, enzymes, herbs and other supplements that don't caim to do or cure anything , and have not, under the previous legislature that assures no claims are to be made on such products.

    The fact that more folks are using natural remedies now has nagered the pharmaceuticla companies and set thier obbyists towards their designated course fo action

    "How can a people who have struggled long years under oppression throw off their oppressors and establish a free society? The problems are immense, but

    their solution lies in the education and enlightenment of the people and the emergence of a spirit that will serve as a foundation for independence and self-government".

    This ties in with Codex Alimentarius

    The controversy over the Codex Alimentarius relates to a perception that it is a mandatory standard for food - including vitamin and mineral supplement - safety. Supporters of the Codex Alimentarius say that it is a voluntary reference standard for food and that there is no obligation on countries to adopt Codex standards as a member of either Codex or any other international trade organization. From the point of view of its opponents, however, one of the main causes of concern is that the Codex Alimentarius is recognized by the World Trade Organization as an international reference standard for the resolution of disputes concerning food safety and consumer protection.[2][3] Proponents argue that the use of Codex Alimentarius during international disputes does not exclude the use of other references or scientific studies as evidence of food safety and consumer protection.

    It is reported that in 1996 the German delegation put forward a proposal that no herb, vitamin or mineral should be sold for preventive or therapeutic reasons, and that supplements should be reclassified as drugs.[4] The proposal was agreed, but protests halted its implementation
