Give a big “Thank You” to those who work to protect homeopathy on Capitol Hill. Action Alert! Earlier this year, we supported a sign-on letter from Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) calling on the FDA to clarify how the agency will ensure continued access to important homeopathic medicines. This was in response to a major assault by the FDA that threatens the entire homeopathic industry by declaring that all homeopathic drugs are being marketed illegally. Read more.

This powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and life-extending supplement could face the FDA’s axe. We need to stop it. Action Alert! Resveratrol, a plant-derived polyphenol found in grapes, could be eliminated in supplement form like pyridoxamine (B6) was a number of years ago due to an FDA back-channel that lets Big Pharma turn supplements into drugs. If Big Pharma asks the FDA to remove resveratrol, the agency’s job of eliminating these supplements is made much easier if it gets the “mandatory filing” requirement that it wants. Read more.

How industry and government are endangering the public on cell phone safety. Action Alert! One of the only ways that the government regulates cell phones for safety—by limiting the amount of radiation they can emit—is completely broken and inadequate, with children facing the most risk. Industry does its own testing on emissions and can manipulate the test in a variety of ways. The end result is that the amount of radiation the vast majority of Americans are absorbing from cell phones is higher than what industry is reporting. Read more.
A new bill in Congress would limit air travel to only vaccinated individuals. Action Alert! The bill seeks to “ensure that any individual traveling on a flight that departs from or arrives to an airport inside the United States” is fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This is precisely the kind of discrimination we were talking about in our Right to kNOw campaign— protecting people with autoimmune disorders who have a legitimate medical reason to choose not to vaccinate. This bill is a direct assault on the freedom of millions of Americans, and it must be stopped. Read more.
The FDA is signaling a change in how supplements are regulated that threatens not just hemp oil, but the entire industry. Action Alert! The FDA recently rejected two “new supplement” notifications for full spectrum hemp oil products. Previously the agency targeted CBD oil, stating that CBD is not a dietary supplement. These new actions are extremely concerning since they indicate that the FDA will block other hemp products from the market in addition to CBD. Read more.

The FDA has delayed implementation of a bad rule that will limit access to customized medicines like bioidentical estriol and progesterone that millions of women rely on. Action Alert! The FDA recently announced that it will extend by one year — to October 27, 2022 — the date on which it will begin enforcement of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with states regarding interstate shipments of compounded medications. This is a direct result of ANH and other stakeholder advocacy on this issue. Read more.

Ivermectin has shown tremendous promise in the fight against COVID-19, but governments around the world attack and discredit those who promote its use. Action Alert! “Why is the FDA attacking a safe, effective drug?” asks a recent op-ed in the Wall Street Journal. Despite dozens of studies demonstrating the promise of ivermectin to prevent and treat COVID-19, the government continues to attack its use in the pandemic. One likely reason is that widespread use of ivermectin as prophylaxis against COVID undermines vaccine uptake as well as the legal basis for emergency use authorization (EUA) for the vaccines.

The government wants to decide what information you can see during COVID and beyond. Action Alert! A recently-introduced bill in Congress would amend the law to make companies like Facebook and Twitter legally liable for promoting “health misinformation” during a declared public health emergency—a term which will be defined by the government. This is a disastrous attack on free speech that must be opposed. Read more.
