Comments:It would be a tragic breach of freedom to require individuals to ask for a prescription regarding nutritional supplements. There are many nutritional programs available to the public that are sound and backed up by validated research. Research has proven that improved nutrition as available by supplements, improves the body's capacity for optimal health. The American public has at its disposal the tools to make an informed decision regarding the benefits or detriments of nutritional supplements. The medical profession has enough work to do regarding the health care of our citizens without being given the additional burden of deciding individual nutritional needs. Patients have the rights and responsibility to decide their health care program regarding nutrition and the use of supplements. I am opposed to the pending legislation.
