EU's Mathioudakis 'content to outlaw vitamins at high doses' - Health Supreme NewsGrabs Sunday, 2 May 2010

It is quite incredible, but there are some bureaucrats who would like nothing better than to get rid of nutrients at preventive and therapeutic dosages. The EU Commission's department head for Consumers and Health, Basil Mathioudakis, is one of those. He is pushing to forbid the sale of nutrients that could prevent or cure illnesses.

I am not sure whether this is because he has no idea of the potential consequences of his aspirations for people's health, or because he is in some way beholden to pharmaceutical interests that would be content to finally see their competition go down. Think about nutrition making more people healthy and thus competing with pharma's medicines. Perhaps it is not intentional, but Mathioudakis, and with him the European Commission, appear to be holding pharma's interests in higher regard than public health.

Check out the ANH article on maximum vitamin dosages envisaged by the EU...

European Parliament petition on vitamin max levels still open
The European Parliament's Petitions Committee agreed to keep five petitions, questioning the European Commission's proposal to limit maximum levels of vitamins and minerals across Europe's 27 member states, open.

Dr Verkerk told the Committee and attending Members of the European Parliament, as well as other observers present, that over 100 million Europeans took supplements regularly and they should be allowed the freedom to choose. He said the Commission's desire to statutorily limit dosages of vitamin and mineral food supplements using its flawed risk analysis methods, would mean that, assuming the existing proposals were turned to law, the vast majority of people would not experience any significant benefits when using the products.

Following the Petition Committee's meeting in Brussels yesterday, Dr Verkerk commented, "I thought the European Commission put up a rather weak defence. Its key strategy seemed to be to attack the entire notion of nutritional therapy, arguing it involved the medicinal, rather than food use, of micronutrients". Verkerk went on to say, "the Commission continues to ignore key issues we are raising about the irrational and inconsistent scientific and regulatory approaches they are contemplating".

Mr Basil Mathioudakis, head of the food law and nutrition unit of DG SANCO, who argued the European Commission's case, told the Committee it was committed to turning the proposals into law and was content to outlaw use of nutrients used in clinical nutrition, functional medicine and nutritional therapy.

Multivitamins improve health of mother and baby
“This research highlights the concerning fact that a number of women, even in the developed world, are lacking in important nutrients during pregnancy,” Dr Brough says. “Of course, a good diet during pregnancy is important for a healthy pregnancy, but for those who do not have a good diet, multivitamin and mineral supplements will help to reduce the risk of deficiency.”

Vitamin E shows promise for treating liver disease
247 adults with advanced fatty liver disease were randomly assigned to take a high dose of vitamin E (800 international units), the diabetes drug Actos or dummy pills for nearly two years.
The vitamin and drug were tested because earlier research suggested liver cell deterioration and insulin resistance might be involved in the development of the disease.
Biopsies before and after treatment showed that liver function improved in 43 percent of those in the vitamin E group compared with 19 percent in the placebo group.

Researchers recommend pregnant women take 4,000 IU vitamin D a day
"Diet doesn't provide enough vitamin D, and we don't go in the sun as much as we need," Dr. Wagner said.
Therefore, she and her colleagues, including Bruce W. Hollis, PhD, who has worked in the field of vitamin D research for the last 30 years, set out to determine the optimal dose of vitamin D supplements for pregnant women without doing harm...

Alternative Medicine in Townsend Letter
Don't keep it hidden! Your research deserves recognition. Publish it!

Since 1983, Townsend Letter has been publishing a print alternative medicine magazine. As a forum for the entire alternative medicine community, we present scientific information on a wide variety of alternative medicine topics —including EDTA Chelation Therapy.

New research reinforces anti-inflammatory properties of tart cherries
This new study is the latest linking cherries to protection against heart disease and inflammation. Researchers believe it's the anthocyanins - powerful antioxidant compounds in cherries - also responsible for the fruit's bright red color, that link cherries to reduced inflammation, even inflammation related to muscle recovery post-exercise.

Just don't let the FDA hear about this... can't mention studies like this when selling cherries. They will come right after you for violation of rule number one: "Thou shalt not compete with pharma." Crazy, but that's how things are these days.

Antibacterial madness could be killing us
Triclosan, an antibacterial agent found in soaps, detergents and even clothing, has been sucking the human endocrine system dry. And as it goes to work on your body, it’s also helping to kill off common bacteria… while allowing powerful new ones to rise.

What’s truly amazing… what’s really shocking… what should tell you everything you need to know about this chemical… is that it’s actually a pesticide, not a soap.

You’ve probably been washing with it for years, then eating with your “clean” hands.

GM Food... Feeding the Hungry or Population Control?
... a joint experiment by Russia’s National Association for Gene Security and the Institute of Ecological and Evolutional Problems has revealed that hamsters fed genetically modified (GM) foods produce grandchildren that are unable to produce fourth generation offspring.

Scientist Alexei Surov described the experiment, in which they monitored the behavior, weight gain and birthrate of several groups of hamsters. Upon birth of the second generation they noted slower rates of growth and sexual maturity. The next generation was unable to produce.

Genetically modified foods will feed the hungry. I guess that’s one way of putting it.

You could also call it population control.

Indian Man Lives Seven Decades Without Food or Water?
A neurophysician, Sudhir Shah, says Jani’s survival is miraculous.

“A person can live without food and water for three, four, seven to 12 days and we have studied during …fasting in the past that people have done fasting for 16 or 30 days, but they were taking water after eight days and certainly they pass urine but this case is a unique phenomena.”

Some tests on his brain revealed that it resembled that of a 25-year-old person.

Jani has also claimed he has a hole in his palate and through his head where a drop or two of nectar passes that helps him survive.

Book: "Anatomy of an Epidemic": The hidden damage of psychiatric drugs
The timing of Robert Whitaker’s "Anatomy of an Epidemic," a comprehensive and highly readable history of psychiatry in the United States, couldn’t be better. An acclaimed mental health journalist and winner of a George Polk Award for his reporting on the psychiatric field, Whitaker draws on 50 years of literature and in-person interviews with patients to answer a simple question: If "wonder drugs" like Prozac are really helping people, why has the number of Americans on government disability due to mental illness skyrocketed from 1.25 million in 1987 to over 4 million today?

Are Prozac and Other Psychiatric Drugs Causing the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America?
In 1987, prior to Prozac hitting the market and the current ubiquitous use of antidepressants and other psychiatric drugs, the U.S. mental illness disability rate was 1 in every 184 Americans, but by 2007 the mental illness disability rate had more than doubled to 1 in every 76 Americans. Robert Whitaker was curious as to what was causing this dramatic increase in mental illness disability.

Dozens of Australian children fall ill from flu vaccine
Doctors across Australia have been ordered to stop giving young children the seasonal flu vaccine after 44 children fell ill hours after being immunised.

New Zealand Bans Flu Vaccine for kids under 5
New Zealand's Health Ministry has told doctors not to give the Fluvax brand of vaccine to children under 5, after the Australian government ordered a halt in that age group because of an unexpectedly high number of cases of fever-related seizures in Western Australia.

Three cases of fever-related seizures in children under 5 following Fluvax injections have been reported to the NZ Centre for Adverse Reactions Monitoring at Otago University in this flu season.

The Vaccine War - PBS Frontline interview with founder of Generation Rescue
"But the irony of the situation was, by the time we'd gotten the actual diagnosis, we'd done tons of research. So I was reading stories from parents of children who had fully recovered from autism and gone on to lead a normal life. I was reading stories from parents of causation. I was reading data about the dramatic rise in the number of kids. So I walked into that office because I had to get the formal diagnosis as part of the process, but it takes ages to get one fully informed. So there wasn't a chance in hell I was going to believe what these people were telling me, because I was listening to parents with a completely different story, and I trust parents more than I trust doctors."

The Assault on Autistic Children and their Parents...
The officially approved treatment, in the US, for Autistic children is to put them in a State mental facility. There, on day one, they yank their pants down to their ankles, bend them over a table, and jab a hypo full of mind numbing drugs into their buttocks. Then they throw them into a ward, keep them doped, where, most likely, they will die in a few years. And, if you read the US Inspection Report on the State of Texas Mental Health Facilities I think you will conclude, as did the Federal Investigators, that they'd be better off dying sooner than later - for the facilities are a hell-hole of problems, including rampant sexual abuse.

Why is this "institutionalizing" of Autistic children the officially approved treatment? Because according to "the system" Autistic children have been convicted. Their crime? They have been officially declared, along with their parents, as having defective genes.

Psychiatrist Blows Whistle on Drug Company
The AstraZeneca drug Seroquel is for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, but the company marketed it to seniors and kids for other things and wooed doctors into over-prescribing it. Kruszewski blew the whistle on AstraZeneca and it was ordered to pay a half-billion dollars in fines to the government.

Is your cell phone frying your brain?
"We reviewed 23 case-control studies that examined tumor risk due to cell phone use. Although as a whole the data varied, among the 10 higher quality studies, we found a harmful association between phone use and tumor risk. The lower quality studies, which failed to meet scientific best practices, were primarily industry funded.

The 13 studies that investigated cell phone use for 10 or more years found a significant harmful association with tumor risk, especially for brain tumors, giving us ample reason for concern about long-term use."
