FDA move to restrict vitamins, minerals, herbs as untested drugs?

Thanks to alfreda89 for the heads up.

If I'm reading this correctly the Food and Drug Administration is about to declare that natural health products and therapies are "Medicines" and make any non-physician that uses them guilty of practicing medicine without a license. That would also make the products used (vitamins, herbs and mineral) untested drugs and require that they be removed from the market.

This could be hysteria, but currently I have absolutely no faith in our government, so I thought to pass it on here (I checked Snopes and don't see it listed.)
