Will 2014 be the year you lose 
access to supplements and healthful foods?
Not if ANH-USA can help it. Donate now!

Dear Michael,

Recently, I told you about Senator Durbin’s relentless attacks on supplements, the more than twenty state GMO labeling bills being considered in 2014, and the disastrous NDI draft guidance. I asked for your help to raise $30,000 to draft GMO labeling legislation, to educate decision-makers, and to pay for potential lawsuits to protect your rights. Hundreds have already responded generously—but we still need your help!

 

Progress: 32%
Progress: 32%
Raised: $ 9694     Goal: $ 30000

Here’s what’s at stake:

  • We need GMO labeling for Frankenapples and mutant breeds. Increasingly, companies such as Monsanto are pushing dangerous new technologies like mutagenesis, which uses irradiation to scramble thousands of genes at random. This results in even more unforeseen health effects than GMO engineering, as terrible as that can be. Of course, we’re fighting against “foods” like this coming to market. But if they do,they must be labeled. We simply can’t risk our families unwittingly becoming victims to the Great GMO Experiment.
  • Foes of GMO labeling laws are desperate—and dangerous. Beasts are at their most menacing when they’re cornered: Big Food is spending millions to defeat state initiatives (in Washington State, they spent $11 million in illegally laundered money). Clearly, industry is running scared, but we can’t stumble at the finish line. In 2014, we’ll use your donations to champion Your Right to Know. 
     
  • NDI draft guidance + Senator Durbin’s anti-supplement bills = Catastrophic outcome. The NDI draft guidance could remove 30,000+ supplements from the market, while Sen. Durbin’s anti-supplement bills would give FDA the green light to regulate supplements like drugs (meaning that nutritional supplements would either disappear from the shelves entirely or be taken over by Big Pharma). Next year, ANH-USA is launching a proactive advocacy, legal, and educational strategy to stop the guidance and Durbin before you feel their effects. 

Through your support, ANH-USA makes a difference. We’re your eyes and ears in Washington, DC, taking legal action, translating FDA regulatory jargon, and letting you know about perilous last-minute bills and riders (remember the Monsanto Protection Act?). But we need your help to keep working—please act now, before it’s too late.

Any size gift makes a huge difference—$5, $50, $500, 
or more!
Your donation will be 100% tax deductible—
every single penny goes straight to the Natural Health
Alliance Foundation
, the charity that supports ANH-USA’s
legal and educational projects. Please give generously.

With your donation comes our promise: all of us at ANH-USA will work tirelessly—in the US Capitol and in state capitols across the country—to protect your access to natural health in 2014.

Wishing you health and happiness in the New Year,
