EU Food Supplements Directive is “useless” - Health Supreme NewsGrabs 6 December 2010

Polish Researchers: EU Food Supplements Directive is “useless”
Polish legal researchers have slammed the 2002 Food Supplements Directive (FSD) for being so vaguely and badly written that it is retarding one of its stated aims – to harmonise and boost trade across the European Union’s 27 member states.


The researchers say the Directive contains unclear definitions of what a food supplement actually is; what is meant by a “normal diet” in the European Union bloc; as well as remaining ambiguous about the treatment of nutrients such as amino acids, fatty acids, fibre and herbal extracts and yet-to-be-confirmed dosage levels.

The result, they say, is a regulation that “turns out to be useless” and which, “fails to comply not only with the standards of good legislation but even basic legislative requirements.”

Video: Brussels moves against herbalists
UK MEP Daniel Hannan speaks in the European Parliament in Strasbourg on 24th November, concerning European regulations on natural cures and herbal medicines which will put companies selling harmless products out of business.

As the National Health Federation already pointed out in its November 30th News Alert, House passage of S.510 is not a given. Several groups – having picked up on early Congressional news reports – are repeating the news that the bill could be "blue slipped" (meaning set aside and not voted on), because its Section 107 contains "unconstitutional" revenue-raising provisions...

Everyone should boost intake of vitamin D, IOM says
The U.S. top scientific advisory panel recommended that adults modestly increase their intake of vitamin D, known as the "sunshine vitamin," from a daily dose of 200 international units to 600 international units. The panel also extended the safe upper limit for adults from 2000 IU to 4000 IU daily.

Dr. John Cannell on Institute of Medicine Vitamin D Guidelines
After 13 years of silence, the quasi governmental agency, the Institute of Medicine's Food and Nutrition Board, yesterday recommended that a three - pound premature infant can take virtually the same amount of vitamin D as a 300 pound pregnant woman. While that 400 IU/day dose is close to adequate for infants, 600 IU/day in pregnant women will do nothing to help the three childhood epidemics most closely associated with gestational and early childhood vitamin D deficiencies: asthma, auto-immune disorders and, as recently reported in the largest pediatric journal in the world, autism.

US: Study finds low vitamin D levels in northern California residents with metabolic syndrome
Researchers from the UC Davis Health System have found that compared with healthy controls, blood levels of vitamin D are significantly reduced in patients in the Sacramento area with metabolic syndrome, a constellation of disease risk factors that affects about one in three U.S. adults and predisposes them to diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

This adds some context to a new recommendation of increased vitamin D intake. Unfortunately the committee making the recommendation only went half way. Its members refused to consider any effects of vitamin D not related to increasing bone strength, arguing that those effects, documented in a host of recent studies, are not "sufficiently proven".

How many years will have to pass and how many more studies will have to be done before official recommendations catch up with the reality of severe nutrient deficiencies in today's populations?

EU Antitrust regulator raids drugmakers over generics
Once again, European Commission antitrust regulators have raided the offices of several drugmakers seeking evidence that they struck anticompetitive deals or used their dominant market positions to squeeze rivals.

The EC conducted several raids last year as well over suspicions that various drugmakers violated antitrust rules by deliberately stalling cheaper generic versions of their own meds after patents had expired.

Dental Fillings – Mercury Exposure At Dangerous Levels And Can Cause Alzheimer’s Disease
The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology passed in a detailed report to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration alerting that due to mercury found in dental fillings, they evaluate that 67.2 million Americans go over the reference mercury exposure level. More concerning, if the California Environmental Protection Agency’s benchmark is considered, then approximately 122 million Americans go over that dose level.

Blaylock: Fluoride's Deadly Secret
The goal is to alter behavior by chemically changing the way in which the brain functions. One of the primary methods through which this is achieved is by fluoridating water and food supplies. Blaylock explains how fluoride opportunists seized upon falls in dental cavities, which were occurring naturally as a result of increased calcium intake and better diets in the west, to claim that mass fluoridation was the answer, while burying a plethora of studies that proved adding fluoride to water did not reduce cavities at all and in fact in several instances increased dental cavities.

CDC Update on Dental Fluorosis
Dental fluorosis is a disease of dentition resulting from exposure to toxic levels of fluoride during childhood. As such, it is also a marker for risk of more systemic fluoride related pathologies such as skeletal fluorosis, decreased IQ, thyroid dysfunction, emotional and behavioral related pathologies, cancer, reproductive difficulties, etc.

Do Psychiatric Medications Impair Normal Brain Development?
At the recent annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, which was held in San Diego from November 13-17, four poster presentations told of how, in animal studies, early exposure to psychiatric medications impaired normal brain development. After the animals matured into adults, they showed deficits in functioning, even though their "childhood" or "fetal" exposure to the psychiatric drugs had been relatively brief.

Our National Experiment

The widespread medicating of children in the United States is often described by scientists as a grand "experiment," since the long-term effects of the drugs on normal brain development have not been well studied. Unfortunately, these animal studies suggest that this experiment is not going to turn out well.

Skinning the HIV/AIDS cat
There’s more than one way to approach this task, so popular folklore would have it. The experience of three decades teaches that a direct assault within the mainstream-controlled venues does not bring attention to the evidence. Moreover, the most important audience is not the various phalanxes of those whose livelihoods and status and self-image are inextricably caught up with the official belief. Those who are being seriously damaged by current practices are an important audience; but so is the much larger mass of people who have so far taken no special interest in HIV/AIDS and know only the sound-bites about it that pervade the public arena.

Vaccines for preventing influenza in healthy adults have 'modest effect'
AUTHORS' CONCLUSIONS: Influenza vaccines have a modest effect in reducing influenza symptoms and working days lost. There is no evidence that they affect complications, such as pneumonia, or transmission.WARNING: This review includes 15 out of 36 trials funded by industry (four had no funding declaration). An earlier systematic review of 274 influenza vaccine studies published up to 2007 found industry funded studies were published in more prestigious journals and cited more than other studies independently from methodological quality and size. Studies funded from public sources were significantly less likely to report conclusions favorable to the vaccines. The review showed that reliable evidence on influenza vaccines is thin but there is evidence of widespread manipulation of conclusions and spurious notoriety of the studies. The content and conclusions of this review should be interpreted in light of this finding.

That raises an interesting question:

What makes health authorities the world over promote those vaccines despite "thin" evidence of effectiveness and huge costs to the public purse?

Scientists Expose Devastating False Carbon Accounting for Biofuels
A team of thirteen scientists led by Timothy Searchinger at Princeton University, New Jersey, in the United States, pointed to a "far-reaching" flaw in carbon emissions accounting for biofuels in the Kyoto Protocol and in climate legislation. It leaves out CO2 emission from tailpipes and smokestacks when bioenergy is used, and most seriously of all, it does not count emissions from land use change when biomass is grown and harvested.

They said that replacing fossil fuels with bioenergy does not by itself reduce carbon emissions, because the CO2 released by tail pipes and smokestacks is roughly the same per unit of energy regardless of the source, while emissions from producing and/or refining biofuels also typically exceed those for petroleum.
