The FDA is just waiting to get permission to do the same..it is just a matter of time when the CODEX thing infiltrates our country and we have to harmonize to the EU standards. Unfortunately the FDA does things based on greed and power (by crushing the competition to their drug industry), as do the large vitamin companies (certain ones...not all) do things based on greed (by putting junk in their capsules, and saying it is the real thing) Who can you trust anymore? Yourself it seems. When it comes to freedom however, I just as soon have the option of buying the junk than having government dictating to me what I can and cannot have. The government is not there for my own good. It is there for it's own good...unfortunately but true. Beware of the government making decisions for your health.
