FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
Dear Sir or Madam: I'm writing to share my positive experiences as a consumer of homeopathic products, and of the importance of maintaining their availability to private consumers who value the personal management of their health and wellbeing. Having access to these products over-the-counter is invaluable to my family and me. Being able to procure natural, safe medicines locally and without the need of a prescription not only empowers consumers like me, but also takes the burden off of an already over-worked health care system. I find homeopathics clearly marked and I find it easy to choose what I'm looking for. Please ensure that they remain available for safe and reliable consumption by simply maintaining the current applicable standards. With sincere thanks, Susan Vine
