I got that email as well.. what an ***
Even if it doesn't ban anything it is sure as hell gonna drive up prices.
i can see them maybe wanting to ban some of the hardcore stuff thats basically like legal steroids..however i really dont agree with the fact that they want to intrude on this. Its not like were ingesting poison or buying illegal assault rifles. Were buying supplements to make our bodies look better and feel better with no proven side effects.
Limitations are for people that have them, and excuses are for people that need them.

Things on the low end (like whey protein) I doubt would be hit hard (if at all) by this. It's more of a means to make safer supplements...which honestly isn't a bad thing I think. I don't take anything other than whey protein because they're not bound to many restrictions/regulations, and I don't want to know what may or may not be going into my body. If this leads to better regulated supplements, I'm all for it. If it leads to prescription-type supplements, I'm not. I'm thinking it's more likely to not be the latter.
Throwing in the towel
Funny thing is, I don't even use much in the way of supplements. Protein, creatine, and that sums it up for me. I just don't believe in the government controlling what I put in my body or telling me what to do. The more they control, the less rights I feel I have.
Most supplements are garbage anyway unless were talking about supplements that are bought in the trunk of some dudes oldsmobile. All i need is some whey protein, creatine, and some sort of caffeine booster. In a way, I dont give a **** because i dont use sauce and i would love to see GNC go out of business. But then again, if people want to waste their money on supplements and get fleeced then that is their fault
Hopefully if this does happen people will realize that most of the supplements they wasted their money on didnt do ****
