ACTION ALERT – Turn Up the Pressure on PBS

Posted February 24th, 2016
The Alliance for Natural Health (ANH) has issued an Action Alert concerning PBS and the recent Frontline program on dietary supplements.  PBS’s ombudsman Michael Getler responded to criticism from natural health advocates on Frontline’s attack piece on the dietary supplement industry.  According to ANH, it was a disappointing response that continues to perpetuate the false notion that supplements are not regulated.  Read more from ANH and TAKE ACTION to tell Mr. Getler that his response is not factual—that the absence of context in the Frontline film is inexcusable, and does not even address the issue of the financial ties to Big Pharma of those who were interviewed.  Note: By clicking on this link, you will be leaving Your Voice for Health’s website and accessing the Alliance for Natural Health’s website.

Read more to TAKE ACTION to send a message to the FDA telling them to look into CAFOs, the real culprits behind foodborne illnesses, rather than artisanal cheesemakers.
