Although The Alliance for Natural Health takes a substantially positive view of "European Court Decides: Food Supplements Directive May Go Ahead".

The decision could still be great threat to DSHEA forcing it harmonize via the CAFTA deliberations

Friends of Freedom International comments - The USA is now, of some 200 countries globally the ONLY country to legislatively protect freedom of choice in health care by use of nutrient rich dietary food supplements that will prevent, treat and even cure in some cases most chronic diseases.

PLEASE JOIN OUR CANADIAN, US and International Friends of Freedom and start a Friends of Freedom 'CIRCLE OF FRIENDS' in your country, or a country where you have a friend or family living.

In addition if you are an American here is what can you do:

"This is what I have already done. I printed out the pdf files referenced below and took them to my congress critter's office as I only live six miles from her plush digs. I had a chat with her aide and made my position crystal clear: We don't need this stinking CODEX system. We do not want or need more globalization of any aspect of our lives or products and services and any member of Congress who does nothing to stop this is going to feel the wrath of the American people. I also gave a set to the manager at my health food store and Whole Foods where I get my organic food; they also carry vitamins and supplements. Both were grateful for the packet.

I printed out one set of the four pdf files below, placing Bolen's page first and had fifty sets of all four files (combined) printed, front and back. I sent them to my mother who lives in a rural retirement area. She took half of them to the senior center and the other half to a club meeting. Both places were happy to get them once mother explained what was going on. These seniors depend on vitamins and supplements and not only do they vote, they make lots of noise to their congress critters. I know it costs a few bucks to make copies to hand out, but this is one fight we can't lose. While it is a financial sacrifice to make copies and get them out, the cost of losing our right to vitamins, supplements and alternative medicine will be astronomical. Thank you for doing your part.

The House of Representatives is set to vote on CAFTA as early as July 19, 2005. As with NAFTA , GATT , the mis named 'Patriot Act,' and other massive pieces of legislation, it's doubt ful more than a half dozen members of Congress will have read the 765 pages of text for CAFTA, yet they plan to saddle us with yet another destructive trade treaty that will further gut our critical job bases. Enough is enough.

You can call your congress critter's DC office or better yet, the local office. House of Representatives click here. The Senate listings are here.You can also use this method, click here.

These are pdf files that take a minute or two to load if you use dial up.

The "Codex Alimentarius” Commission of the UN World Health Organization has taken yet another step toward the criminalization of nutrition by adopting new guidelines for vitamins and food supplements. The guidelines will set limits on potencies that are allowed in these products and apparently may even be regulated insofar as US citizens are concerned - via the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) now passed the by the Senate and being debated by the House.

According to Dr. Scott Johnson's Healthy Living newsletter (see latest issue, FMNN Editorials and Market Analysis, June 6) passage of CAFTA would more firmly bind the US to World Trade Organization regulations and requirements, as follows: "The Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) Treaty will require the U.S., a member of the World Trade Organization, to revise our food laws and regulations based on Codex decisions. CAFTA would force harmonization of our dietary supplements and regulations to international standards, overriding the DSHEA Act of 1994.”

Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX), one of the US's only true free-market legislators, has reportedly said the following about the Codex: "The Codex Alimentarius Commission, an offshoot of the United Nations, is working to ‘harmonize' food and supplement rules between all nations of the world. Under Codex rules, even basic vitamins and minerals will require a doctor's prescription. … ”

Although the legal potencies of vitamins haven't been announced yet, critics believe that the limitations will eventually follow the path of the risk-based World Health Organization's "Nutrient Risk Assessment Project.” Vitamins and other homeopathic medical solutions may be restricted based on potential health risks without any analysis to their benefits. In order to justify restrictions on vitamins, those responsible for the final Codex may argue that because super-high doses may be dangerous, smaller doses may be as well. The lower-end dosages may be modeled along the lines of the restrictive German formula. In Germany, currently, a doctor's scrip is often needed, reportedly, even for the purchase of aspirin.

While mega-pharmaceutical drugs with high risks of medical complications continue to be "fast tracked” through the FAA, it is looking increasingly likely that vitamins and natural health remedies have little shelf life left before they are severely restricted or even banned in the US, and the rest of the Western world. For about 30 years the FDA has prevented any further research into the use of vitamin B-17, which reportedly has had beneficial effects regarding cancer prevention. Now other potentially promising vitamins will surely come under regulatory scrutiny and the road to proving their efficacy will surely become more difficult as well.
