NATIONAL HEALTH FEDERATION NEWSLETTER NO. 14
The NHF wishes it had more U.S. Congressional representatives that understood the importance of health freedom to their constituents, but sadly we do not at this point. All 500 plus representatives do receive the Federation's quarterly magazine, Health Freedom News, so the only excuse for not caring about our issues is not ignorance but that they actually do not care. If you feel that your Congressional representative is fighting for a health-freedom issue or issues, please let us know. Our lobbyist may then contact that individual and work with him or her to better understand the issues that are so important to our members and others. We would like to hear from you on this topic.
One individual in Congress definitely is looking out for your individual freedom and health freedom, and that is Representative Ron Paul. The NHF awarded him our Health Freedom Hero award in 2008 for a good reason, it was his endless work on the behalf of health-freedom activists everywhere.
It is Our Turn to Back Ron Paul’s Legislation,
So Please See the Legislation Below that He has Recently Submitted to Congress:
H.R. 3394 Freedom of Health Speech Act To amend the Federal Trade Commission Act concerning the burden of proof in false advertising in cases involving dietary supplements and dietary ingredients.

H.R. 778 Authorizing Interstate Traffic of Unpasteurized Milk and Milk Products This Bill would repeal current Federal legislation prohibiting raw milk/products for human consumption in interstate commerce. It would allow consumers to obtain raw milk products from other States without violating Federal law. At present, in the U.S., you may consume raw milk in all States but may only sell it in half of the States.

H.R.2630 Protect Patients & Physicians Privacy Act This Bill would ensure that patients are free to opt out of a Federally mandated electronic system for maintaining health-care information.
