Europe's Ban on Vitamins
In August 2005 a ban of hundreds of nutritional supplements will be illegal for over the counter sale all across Europe. The pharmaceutical lobbyists will then attempt to do the same here in the US. This means that it is possible that one would have to visit a doctor and get a prescription to take vitamins, minerals, and herbal supplements. If the ban does not go through, it will protect us here, so it is important that the European ban does not succeed.
This has been in the works for over 10 years, and now this horror has momentum. There is the sad chance that many doctors, not having a lot of experience in nutrition, will black ball the natural supplements, and instead only prescribe pharmaceuticals with dangerous side effects, because they make more money prescribing medications over vitamin supplements.
You see, 80 cents of every American "health dollar" is spent on complementary care items, such as vitamins, minerals, and herbal supplements which require no doctor or prescription. The medical world wants more than a piece of this pie, they want the whole pie, and they seem to be getting it.
The Alliance for Natural Health is doing their best to fight this issue in Europe, and need all the support they can get, as the pharmaceutical giants are the most financially powerful groups in the world, even richer than the oil companies.
If the ban on vitamins and minerals is implemented, there is much at stake:
Over 5000 products will disappear from the shelves of UK health stores as a result of the ban removing access to over 300 vitamin and mineral ingredients (out of a total of 420). These include amongst others the main natural forms of Vitamin E, many forms of vitamin C and MSM and minerals such as vanadium, silicon and boron, all being products which millions of consumers choose to take as part of their regular health regime and have done so without any ill effects for many years.
An individual’s freedom of choice to take safe natural health products will be removed – 40% of the UK’s population take vitamins and minerals.
Products are to be banned with absolutely no scientific justification. Many of the world’s leading scientific and medical experts in nutrition support ANH’s views on this issue.
