Fight this new evil from the FDA.

Protects against strokes and Alzheimer’s, but Big Pharma wants an FDA ban. Retweet

We hold these truths to be self-evident…

  • You should control what medicines you use, not the FDA.
  • The FDA should make advisory recommendations only.
  • The FDA should NOT have the power to mandate what you can and cannot buy.

How it would work…

  • If pharmaceutical companies value the FDA seal of approval, then they can pay the FDA to evaluate their drugs.
  • If consumers value FDA approval, then they can decide to only buy FDA approved medicines.

If the FDA’s seal of approval is really so valuable, then it does NOT need to be mandatory.

The FDA should be able to sell its services through voluntary means, just like Underwriter’s Laboratory does.

We have a campaign that tells Congress to make the FDA advisory rather than dictatorial. There is now a new reason for Congress to do this…

The FDA is about to be evil again.

The FDA wants to ban vinpocetine. Vinpocetine is an organic supplement that’s been used by millions of Americans since the 1980s. It has tremendous neurological benefits. Many people use it daily. I (Perry Willis) am one of them. Please send Congress a message telling them to fight this ban. The hardwired message for our FDA campaign reads…

Make the FDA advisory, not dictatorial.

You can copy or edit the following for your personal comments to Congress…

The FDA’s current effort to ban vinpocetine is only the latest reason to justify this change.

Vinpocetine has been safely used by millions of Americans since the 1980s. Over 600 studies available through your own website,, show that it has tremendous neurological benefits. There are no reported negative side effects. Even the FDA has presented evidence that vinpocetine can be protective against stroke and Alzheimer’s.

So why is the FDA attempting this evil ban? Because the FDA serves Big Pharma. Vinpocetine is a threat to pharmacological substances that work less well but cost more. You can learn more about this issue here —

Economists call this “regulatory capture.” And this outrage comes on the heels of the DEA’s attempted kratom ban, which would deny Americans a potentially superior painkilling medication. Enough is enough.

Decide. Will you serve the people or harm them? Use your considerable influence. Write a letter to the FDA protesting the attempted vinpocetine ban. Post the letter on your website where I can see it.

Then, introduce legislation to make the FDA advisory only.


Thank you for being an ACTIVE DC Downsizer,
