    I guess it all comes down to freedom to choose. If you want to take them by all means go ahead, if not then don't. However when it comes to supplements that we ingest into our bodies, I don't see anything wrong with regulating it. Before we take over the counter pills, we know that they've been going through lengthy research and lab tests to know the side affects etc. I hate it when politicians use their influence to block off safety nets when it comes to our well being. Orrin Hatch is probably getting compensated by the supplements companies.

    I tried the Thrive capsules, patch and breakfast drink for several days, and discovered it raised my blood pressure significantly. I cancelled future shipments, and I will probably use it separately, rather than all 3 together, until it's gone. I don't want to waste that much money. I'm sure it is helpful for some people. But it was not for me.

    Fortunately, our own Orrin Hatch has worked tirelessly to make sure the evil, meddlesome FDA can't regulate this industry at all. And it has rewarded him handsomely for it.
