Vitamins, minerals and nutritional supplements
outlawed in Europe
The EU has declared war on nutritional supplements like vitamins
and minerals. Their plan? To make sure people have to get their
nutrients from pharmaceutical companies, where they'll pay thousand-percent
The same could happen in the United States. The FDA and the pharmaceutical
industry are scheming together to outlaw as many nutritional supplements
as possible, and especially the ones that really work (like red
yeast rice and ephedra). Be sure to read the related article,
Vitamin E death risk scare has some people avoiding nutritional
supplements to their own detriment.
300 key vitamins and minerals axed, now 5 000 supplements banned
by "insane" EU Directive.
The Alliance of Natural Health (ANH) is set to legally challenge
the contentious EU Directive on Food Supplements (FSD).
The FSD passed into European law in July 2002 and effectively
brings about a ban on 300 nutrients included in 5 000 health products,
most of which are in dietary supplements closest to food forms.
The appropriation of traditional products is likely to increase
with food supplements, food substances and food/beverages (health
drinks and fruit juices) suppressed by EU Directives repackaged
as "Nutraceuticals" and sold by pharmaceutical companies.
