Your Health Freedoms are Slipping Away!
600 Million Votes Demand The Right For Natural Health!

( Note from Dennis:  this is an older article but it deserves to be read to get a feel for what is continuing to happen world-wide.  The European Commission is still at it and is about to shut down the vitamin/herbal business throughout Europe.)

Thanks to recent worldwide participation in the Email Campaign against the planned vitamin ban by Codex Alimentarius and the European Directive on Supplements, more than 600 Million Votes were registered. This is the biggest online campaign in the history of Internet and has made the EU Supplement Directive the most controversial issue in the EU Parliament. Even though millions of online votes showed the complete opposition of the EU citizens to the directive, it has passed the EU Parliament with 139 from 629 Parliamentarians voting against it. This fight for human health is far from over. It is just beginning.


The Running Amok of the Pharma-Cartel: The EU Pharmaceutical Directive

On June 1, the European Commission will introduce a new directive (EU Directive 2001/83) to the European Parliament. It tries to classify all substances used by humans to improve their health as prescription drugs. This measure would apply even if the substance were a:

  • Vitamin
  • Mineral
  • Amino acid
  • Herb
  • or derived in any way from plants, animal, human or synthetic sources
That means that EVERYTHING humans use (even if it is not presented as such!) to improve their health would be declared a prescription drug and require at least a seven year long and $50 million dollar approval process to come back to the market. In other words, it would be essentially a total ban of all natural health therapies.

The only reason the pharmaceutical industry has prodded the EU Commission to impose this unbelievable law on the 380 million people of Europe is the new breakthrough in cancer research. For the first time, there is a proven way to prevent the spread of cancer cells in the human body by natural substances - without the disastrous side effects of such toxic pharmaceutical approaches as chemotherapy or radiation. The trillion-dollar market for those dangerous drugs will simply vanish within the next few years due to this scientific breakthrough, which is based on the concept of Cellular Health.

Desperate Measures by the Pharma-Cartel

By recognizing the forthcoming collapse of its trillion-dollar cancer business, the Pharma-Cartel is using all its international political connections and numerous national institutions in a desperate move to protect its unscrupulous "Business with Disease". The first step towards a ban on all competing natural products on an international scale was the EU Directive on Supplements that was approved by the European Parliament earlier this year.

The proposed EU Laws also threaten the access to high dosage vitamins in the Unite States via international trade harmonization.

Did you know that there are now 16 European states promoting the European Directive on supplements in the Codex Alimentarius Commission to become the new "world standards" for vitamins?

Did you know that until now only the US and New Zealand with one vote each are opposing this model against the 16 EU States (1 vote each!)?

Did you know that the upcoming Codex Alimentarius guidelines are an integral part of the "Free Trade of the Americas Agreement" (FTAA), directly affecting all US supplements on the market?

Did you know that this will directly affect the US Vitamin Freedom Act (Freedom of Health and Information Act, DSHEA) from 1994)?

Don't believe it? Check for yourself.  The complete FTAA document is offered for download on its official website at:

Note from Dennis:  This is serious business.  There have been numerous attempts in the U.S. over the years to turn vitamins into prescription medicines, now the European Union seems to be doing it.  And, in the end, the U.S. may get dragged into it as a result of our international trade agreements.  Think it can't happen?  Guess again.  It's already happening and will continue until enough people raise such a cry that they can't be ignored.  The pharmaceutical companies are large with zillions of dollars, but even they can't stop millions of people who won't allow it to happen.
