To add to what everyone is saying regarding the removal of vitamin products, have you noticed the recent news regarding the recommendation that women over 50 get an ANNUAL mammogram? Used to be recommended further apart and only for those in high risk categories.
To me this implies that the medical establishment states this is your only way to deal with breast cancer...AFTER it is found and then you go to the 'friendly neighborhood cancer center' (pink wallpaper and all!) and endure the most toxic treatments known to mankind. The 'prevention' accelerates the progression of the disease!! This is very threatening to those of us who try alternative methods. This leads into another comment remembered from my past....

The battle about removal of vitamins has been going on for decades. As early as the 1980's we were fighting this battle. (I repped for a major vitamin manufacturer.) The saving grace was that these products were classified as nutritional supplements and there were always tight regulation on what I, as a representative, could say regarding the benefits. Now, with the increase in product categories, imports, etc...it's a bigger battle to fight (and also big pharma is more powerful w/this administration!) It's not going to be easy to fight now.
