Whistleblowers sound the alarm about critical data integrity issues from a company that ran Pfizer’s vaccine trial. Action Alert! A stunning report from the prestigious British Medical Journal details a whistleblower’s account of data integrity issues in Pfizer’s pivotal Phase III trial for its COVID vaccine. Both Pfizer and the FDA were informed of these issues, but seemingly no action was taken. This raises unsettling questions about the data government agencies relied upon to authorize a vaccine that has now been administered to millions of Americans. Read more.

Real COVID prevention means addressing the obesity and chronic disease epidemic, but the feds don’t have a clue. Action Alert! COVID has killed more than 750,000 Americans and caused more than three million hospitalizations. Yet the virus is not an indiscriminate killer. We know that people with underlying conditions like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease are far more likely to experience the worst effects of COVID if they become infected. Addressing the chronic disease epidemic would take us a long way in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, but the government is totally lost on this point. Part of this plan should be to make dietary supplements more available to Americans, which is accomplished by new federal legislation—we must support it. Read more.
Congress is poised to make it harder to use natural medicine to stave off COVID-19 and other illnesses. Action Alert! There’s good news and bad news. The good news is that new research confirms that vitamin D is a crucial weapon in the fight against COVID. The bad news is that Congress is working on a policy that will make it easier for the FDA to target and eliminate supplements like some forms of vitamin D from the market. We need to make sure this bad idea does not become law. Read more.

We’re not giving up on protecting access to the compounded bioidentical hormones that millions of women rely on to stay healthy. Help us take a stand. Action Alert! As we’ve been reporting for some time, the FDA is poised to eliminate consumer access to compounded bioidentical hormones like estriol, progesterone, testosterone, and others. We’re working with our allies to mobilize members of Congress to take action on this critical women’s health issue. Read more.
Organic milk has a better nutrient profile and fewer contaminants than conventional milk, but loopholes are allowing fraudulent “organic” milk on the market. Action Alert!,,The fall meeting of the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) included a discussion of the Origin of Livestock rule, which has been in limbo since 2015. The rule attempts to prevent large, industrial dairy and cattle operations from gaming the system and fooling consumers into buying faux organic products. Fraudulent organic products undermine regenerative health for humans and the environment. We must urge the USDA to stop stalling and implement the rule, ideally with some changes to strengthen it.

New science says supplements can help with COVID-19, but the feds say you’re not allowed to learn about it. Action Alert! Stunning new studies demonstrate how supplements can improve COVID-19 outcomes. This adds to existing research on a variety of natural compounds showing the plausibility of using supplements to prevent or treat COVID-19. Yet, as we’ve been saying for some time, federal rules prevent Americans from taking advantage of these beneficial products. Read more.
After years of ANH and stakeholder advocacy, the feds are finally taking notice—but it’s not enough. Action Alert! The EPA has released a plan for tackling widespread contamination by a group of toxic industrial compounds known as Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances or PFAS, which have been found in drinking water across the country. It is part of what the Biden administration announced as a multi-agency plan to address PFAS contamination. While this is a positive step, it is far from sufficient to protect Americans from this class of harmful chemicals. Read more.
It’s hard to pronounce, and harder to avoid. But what is glyphosate? And, do you really need to add it to your already-too-long list of worries? If you’re already in the know, we invite you to sign our petition to ban glyphosate for good. If you’ve yet to unpack just how glyphosate plays a role in our food system, read on.
Dr. Robert Califf, who has documented ties to the pharmaceutical industry, has been nominated to head the agency. We must oppose it. Action Alert! The Biden administration is currently vetting former FDA Commissioner Robert Califf, MD to once again head the agency. He first became FDA Commissioner in 2016 and was in the role for about one year before he stepped down in 2017. Dr. Califf’s proven ties to Big Pharma make him an unacceptable choice to head an agency that regulates a quarter of every dollar spent in the United States. Read more.
