They are saying that frequent etiquette means not speaking about intercourse, faith or politics.
Hmmm…I’ve already talked about intercourse drive, if sperm is gluten free, and gluten-free intercourse for less than $27.
I’ve additionally mentioned in case you can pray your celiac away and if a church has the suitable to ban gluten-free hosts.
Since we’ve already just about thrown etiquette out the window, it’s time to leap into politics. However that is for trigger…our well being (and our sanity.)
So I’ve been on a particular treatment for about 9 years now. It renews each month and each month it’s the identical tablet. Till yesterday when Mrs. Dude picked up my meds. I opened the bottle and WHAT THE HELL?? They appeared completely completely different. Checked the label…it was the suitable treatment. Checked the producer (because it’s a generic) and CRAP…a brand new producer. Is it gluten-free??
I appeared on-line. Nothing.
I known as the pharmacy. Didn’t know.
They known as the producer. I waited.
They known as me again. They mentioned it’s secure.
Undoubtedly a aid, however wouldn’t or not it’s good (and a heck of so much simpler) if all medicines needed to be labeled whether or not they contained gluten? I imply, how cool would that be?
Properly…your dream might turn out to be a actuality. However we’d like your assist.
Consultant Tim Ryan (Ohio) has as soon as once more launched the Gluten in Remedy Disclosure Act. Official title: H.R.2074 – Gluten in Medication Disclosure Act of 2019. Why is he attempting once more? I’ll let him clarify:
From Tim Ryan:
“Celiac illness is a rising challenge for our nation and as elected officers it’s our obligation to present these affected all of the sources they should deal with their illness. America already mandates that meals merchandise containing wheat are adequately labeled and there’s no motive why we shouldn’t do the identical for our medicines. I’m proud to introduce laws that may assist avert the intense well being danger hundreds of thousands of People are compelled to endure on daily basis whereas taking unlabeled, probably dangerous medicines.”
That’s the excellent news. The unhealthy information is that the invoice was launched in each 2013 and 2015 and didn’t get enacted. So he’s giving it one other shot (god bless him).
Need extra unhealthy information? After three weeks, there are solely four co-sponsors to date so passing it ain’t gonna be simple once more.
Passing a invoice is a five-step course of. It will get launched (“Whats up Invoice…good to satisfy you.”), will get reported by the Congressional Committee, passes Home, passes Senate, passes fuel (simply kidding) and at last will get signed by the President.
Why does the invoice as soon as once more have such a slim probability of being handed? As a result of politicians are like most individuals; if it doesn’t have an effect on them, they don’t care. And lord is aware of what number of of them are within the pockets of the big pharmaceutical firms. A fellow celiac emailed his native congressman (Congressman Rohrabacher) about supporting the act and what did he get in response? A canned letter bashing The Reasonably priced Care Act (Obamacare). Unreal. For this reason congress has a 9% favorability ranking, falling beneath visitors jams and cockroaches.
(Dude notice: Say what you’ll in regards to the ACA, however as an individual with a historical past of bladder most cancers, pores and skin most cancers, celiac illness and blood clots, I might be thought-about uninsurable. Not anymore.)
So if it has such a slim probability of getting handed, can we throw within the towel? Let me ask you. Did Bluto throw within the towel?
This can be our final shot people. If we go down, let’s go down swinging.
Please contact your native consultant and ask/beg them to help the Gluten in Remedy Identification Act.
And please, please, please…share the ever-living heck out of this web page and unfold the phrase. Energy to the folks.
P.S. Somebody requested if I might provide a pattern letter so you would copy and paste and make it simpler. If you happen to’re caught, attempt one thing like this:
Thousands and thousands of your fellow People have a medical necessity to be 100% gluten-free. It’s not a fad and it’s not a joke. There are presently no labeling legal guidelines in place to find out whether or not medicines are gluten-free or not, placing folks at critical danger. The pharmacies normally have no idea, and even a name to the producer could not get the suitable reply. I’m asking you to please help the H.R.2074 – Gluten in Medication Disclosure Act of 2019 launched by Consultant Tim Ryan. Thanks prematurely to your consideration.
