    Share the News with Your Legislators Today!

    Dear Save Our Supplements Supporter:
    A recent study conducted by The Lewin Group confirms what Save Our Supplements supporters have long known – taking certain dietary supplements can help seniors live longer, more independent lives while reducing health care costs by billions of dollars.
    Here are some key findings of the study, which was commissioned by the Dietary Supplement Education Alliance (DSEA): <ul>[*]The supplements studied – omega-3 fatty acids and lutein with zeaxanthin – have reported savings of $3.1 billion and $2.5 billion respectively over five years, resulting from reduced doctors' visits, hospitalizations, and avoided transitions to dependency.[/list]<ul>[*]Omega-3 fatty acids and lutein with zeaxanthin allow seniors to avoid common conditions such as coronary heart disease (CHD) and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).[/list]<ul>[*]<li class="hmtext">Daily intake of approximately 1,800 milligrams of omega-3 by Americans over the age of 65 can reduce the occurrence of CHD, resulting in a potential five-year (2006-2010) savings of $3.1 billion in health care expenditures and an estimated 384,303 fewer hospitalizations.
    [*]Daily intake of 6-10 milligrams of lutein with zeaxanthin by seniors can reduce the relative risk of AMD, resulting in an estimated five-year (2006-2010) net savings of $2.5 billion from the avoided transition of approximately 98,219 individuals to dependency either in the community or a nursing facility.[/list]What You Can Do Today

    I've been reading a lot about this....I use a lot of supplements , rather than go the route my PA has recommended.....(more drugs and more drugs..for everything....) I take certain things every day.....(multiple, Glucosamine, Calcium & Magnesium , Anti Oxidant...etc...) and I know they are trying hard to regulate it...

    I guess the govt isn't making any money off them...nor are the pharmeceutical companies...

    They've been trying this for a while.....I hope it doesn't pan out.... :rolleyes:
