“We have never made any unfounded claims, much less unfounded sensationalist claims.  This is totally false.  We have also discussed these rumors in our newsletter.  Please see the links below:
Rumor No. 1
That the Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) provision we got into Obamacare mandating an integrative doctor on the CER and advisory panel was pointless.

Rumor No. 2
That there is no evidence Congressman Waxman authored the FTC expansion provision and in addition the provision is not (now was not) a threat to supplements.

Rumor No. 3
That ANH-USA did not get the supplement protecting language into the Senate Food Safety Bill to ensure protection from Codex, and that this provision went into the bill long before we said it did.
