On March 27th, the Organic & Natural Health Association submitted a petition to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), asking them to approve a health claim concerning the association between vitamin D and a decreased risk of preterm births. Proper levels of Vitamin D reduce the risk of BOTH mother’s pregnancy outcomes and their baby’s health outcomes. Significantly higher Vitamin D levels during pregnancy has been shown to reduce preterm birth by 60%, virtually eliminating certain pregnancy complications, and reducing many others.
We need your help! It’s important that the FDA hear from as many Members of Congress as we can muster to support this petition. Please fill out this action alert which will identify YOUR representatives. This system will send a letter to your representatives in Washington asking for their support.
Note: The information requested is required by the congressional contact system. You may put all zeros for your phone number, if you wish.
