Did you know that the EU does its utmost to prohibit our right to use food supplements? If the EU gets its way through, vitamins and minerals will be banned altogether.
Did you know that the EU does its utmost to ban vitamins and minerals and supplements ? The EU wants to harmonize the rules for food supplements within the EU to ”protect consumers of food supplements against serious health risks and ensure that these products do not contain misleading information”. What a nice thought from EU. EU has made lists of the vitamins and minerals that can be sold in the EU. If any food supplements are not included in the EU lists, they may not be sold.But do not worry – everything is for our own sake.
FORBIDDEN TO SAY THAT FOOD SUPPLEMENTS CAN PREVENT OR CURE DISEASES
”The labelling, presentation and advertising must not attribute to food supplements the property of preventing, treatingor curing a human disease, or refer to such properties. The labelling, presentation and advertising of food supplements shall not include any mention stating or implying that a balanced and varied diet cannot provide appropriate quantities of nutrients in general.Member States shall bring into force the laws, regulations andadministrative provisions necessary to comply with this Directive by 31 July 2003. They shall forthwith inform the Commission thereof”.
ALLIANCE FOR NATURAL HEALTH
There is one group that one definitely should support and that group is Alliance for Natural Health – ANH. ANH is run by Dr. Robert Verkerk. ANH has been working for years to try to stop the European Unions trying of banning food supplements and alternative medicin. You can read on their own homepages what they have achieved. They have taken the European Union to court just to fight for food supplements and nutritiens within EU. Alliance for Natural Health relies only on donations. I have made a donation myself and I recommend you to do the same. I also recommend listening to Ian Cranes lecture on Codex Alimentarius. Codex Alimentarius from United Nations is the big threat to food supplements.
In the video below the ANH talks about their work to stop EU from banning food supplements.
