Action Required to Save Our Access to Nutrients - Critical

Dietary supplements cause nearly no injury, to the contrary, they improve health. Hence, it is totally absurd applying drug type risk assessment models to them. It is both unnecessary and inappropriate. Unlike nutrients, no one is deficient of toxic drugs. In fact there is great risk of injury if normally essential nutrients are restricted - it is akin to preventing people to eat without a prescription.

Given that there is so much injury form drugs it is idiotic to waste resources in creating a drug style risk assessment on nutrients. This, at the expense of, much needed, work for the real risk assessment form so many toxic drugs and medical procedures that do cause injury. This can only be considered negligent.


Safety of Dietary Supplements

Death by Medicine

Given that FAO and WHO are pursuing this absurd drug style risk assessment on safe nutrients, one can only conclude that there must be some other reason why this avenue of work is being pursued. It does not take a rocket science to figure why there is such lack of transparency in their deliberations. Thus it is imperative that we insist full disclosure as per the note further down below.

In addition to more information, there is an example letter in the link below. Although writing your own letter should be better.

If you value your right to continue to access mega vitamins in the potencies currently available in the market place in Canada or the United States, please email and and "request the FAO and WHO make public the names of the person or persons who will be selecting the experts to take part in the workshop to develop a scientific model for nutrient risk assessment." as per the following letter.

Ask your Member of Parliament or Congressman to do the same..

Croft Woodruff

"An announcement concerning a joint Nutrient Risk Assessment Project was issued earlier this year by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The goal of the project is supposedly to define a 'scientifically-based and internationally applicable approach for nutrient risk assessment.'

One of the key parts of the Project is the convening of an interdisciplinary technical workshop to develop a scientific model for nutrient risk assessment. A 'Call for Experts' to take part in this workshop was recently made by the FAO/WHO, and it is anticipated that the workshop will be scheduled for May 2005. Why is this important? Because the FAO and the WHO are the joint administrators of the Codex Alimentarius Commission, the results of their nutrient risk assessment project will be hugely influential upon the maximum levels to be set in connection with the Codex Guidelines for Vitamin and Mineral Food Supplements. However, quite aside from the fact that applying risk assessment models to dietary supplements is both unnecessary and totally inappropriate one should be very concerned about the transparency of the FAO/WHO Nutrient Risk Assessment Project, as there is currently no indication as to whom, specifically, will be making the selection of experts to take part in the workshop.

In order for the Nutrient Risk Assessment Project Workshop to have the confidence of both the public and the scientific community it is clearly essential that the selection of experts to take part in it is conducted with the very highest standards of transparency.

Those who are concerned about maintaining their access to dietary supplements should email and and request that the FAO and WHO make public the names of the person or persons who will be selecting the experts to take part in the workshop to develop a scientific model for nutrient risk assessment."
