Unfair EU Restrictions on Vitamin & Mineral Levels

This petition aims to positively influence the approach the European Commission is taking in its efforts to limit the maximum available dosages of vitamin and mineral food supplements across the 27 Member States of Europe. Risk management methods presently being considered by the European Commission and the European Food Safety Authority for the determination of these maximum permitted levels (MPLs) wlll unjustifiably limit amounts of many key forms of vitamins and minerals used daily by millions of Europeans to support good health. The Alliance for Natural Health is proposing modifications to the risk management methods to prevent discrimination against food supplements that have been used safely and beneficially in parts of Europe and elsewhere for decades. Unless the methods are changed, the regulatory measure that is likely to come into force by 2010, could prevent you from obtaining sufficient micronutrients to manage your health properly. For example, there is a risk that the level of beta-carotene may be set at less than that typically found in two carrots, and that for selenium, less than the amount found in two brazil nuts. Sign the petition now so that the European Commission, European governments, the European Food Safety Authority and Members of the European Parliament are able to hear how you feel about your rights to natural health. Please pass this on to as many contacts as you can in the EU so our voices can be heard loud and clear. Voting on this petition will also provide public feedback to the Codex Alimentarius Commission with regard to its continuing development of a global guideline on vitamin and mineral food supplements that is modelled closely on the European regime.

  • roslyn bertram Words fail me! EU is becomming a horror script. no person should have their food, their medication & choice tampered with bybigcompanies & their greed for money & power. * Britons never will be Slaves!

  • Jennifer Symonds It should be a basic human right to chose how we manage our own health & alleviate disease

  • Dr Paula Baillie-Hamilton The fall out from this piece of legislation if passed is terrifying to me as a doctor who specialises in nutritional and environmental medicine and who sees on a daily basis the need for higher levels of supplements to reverse illnesses and to restore people's health. It will inevitably result in removing the only way for the body to normalise itself as there are few nutrients left in foods now due to artificial fertilisers and due to our ever increasing needs due to higher levels of pollutants in our bodies (as we need more nutrients to dispose of the toxic polluting chemicals we are exposed to). The 'science' used in the calculations of these 'safe' levels was completely flawed as they failed to even consider using years of scientific research which indicated our new higher need for nutrients due to the modern polluted and nutrient defecient environment we live in. It will result in the downfall of people health and ever increasing misery for current and future generations as good nutrition is the rockstone of good health. Pharmaceuticals only tweak symptoms but nutrients enable the body to fix itself. Without access to the levels of nutrients we now need, as the levels of nutrients in foods are a fraction of what they once were, we are doomed to poor health, increased obesity, cancer, heart disease, allergies, stress, sleeping problems, gut problems actually all the 21st centry illnesses which now afflict people.
