As a concerned citizen, I am deeply troubled by the proposed fee on all natural products, including supplements and Chinese herbs. This petition aims to shed light on the potential consequences of such a fee and advocate for our right to choose safer alternatives with fewer side effects.

Personal Story:
I have always believed in the power of nature when it comes to maintaining my health and well-being. Over the years, I have relied on natural products like supplements and Chinese herbs as an integral part of my healthcare routine. These alternatives have not only provided relief from various ailments but also offered me peace of mind knowing that they are generally associated with fewer side effects compared to their synthetic counterparts.

However, this proposed fee threatens our access to these crucial natural products. It is disheartening to think that we might be forced into relying solely on pharmaceutical options that often come with a laundry list of potential adverse reactions. Why should we be deprived of our choice when safer alternatives exist?

Impact on Affordability and Availability:
Not only will this fee limit our choices but it will also burden us financially. Natural products are already priced higher due to their quality sourcing and production processes. Adding an additional fee would further increase their cost, making them unaffordable for many individuals who rely on them as part of their daily healthcare regimen.

Moreover, small distributors who specialize in providing these natural products may struggle even more under this financial strain. These local businesses play a vital role in ensuring access to diverse product options while supporting local economies. If they cannot survive due to increased costs imposed by this proposed fee, we risk losing valuable sources for obtaining these essential items altogether.

Supporting Facts:
1) According to a study published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine (2018), natural dietary supplements were found significantly less likely than prescription drugs or over-the-counter medications to cause adverse effects.

2) The American Botanical Council reported that the global market for herbal supplements reached $93.15 billion in 2019, indicating a growing demand for natural products worldwide.

3) A survey conducted by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health revealed that approximately 59 million Americans use some form of complementary medicine, including natural products, to support their health and well-being.

We urge policymakers to reconsider this proposed fee on all natural products. Let us preserve our right to choose safer alternatives with fewer side effects while ensuring the affordability and availability of these essential items. Together, we can protect our access to natural products and promote a healthier future for all.

Thank you for your support!
