From the March 2004 Idaho Observer:
Doctors, drugs killing millions
Government response: Regulate vitamins and minerals
Organized medicine's response to the global epidemic of disease, chronic ill-health and death attributable to the prescribed use of pharmaceutical drugs is to recognize the threat posed by real medicine and apply political pressure to limit or eliminate public access to them.
Codex Alimentarius, a German model for the standardization of foods, herbs, botanicals, vitamins and supplements, is slated to be used to regulate, control and/or eliminate people's ability to consume these substances unless prescribed by a licensed physician. Though it seems absurd that people may eventually seek permission to take vitamins, the European Union is currently deliberating over such measures and the U.S. delegation of the Codex Commission is salivating over the possibility it may accomplish such regulatory schemes in North America.
In a 4,000-word article making the case for public outrage, the London Observer's Rose Shepherd wrote, In the 21st century we live under siege. There are concerns about pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, GM, mobile phones, microwaves, amalgam fillings, falling sperm counts, mad cows, MMR - even milk. Farmed salmon is a Trojan horse for carcinogens. Obesity and diabetes are on the march. There is a mass of documentation on all this. So what is the European Commission's big idea? 'Let's clamp down on vitamins and minerals.'
It would be funny if it weren't so tragic. While the EU has been busy drafting legislation, we seem to have been sleepwalking into a situation where chemists and health stores will be purged of hundreds of nutritional supplements.
Member states will be essentially blackmailed into enforcing the new regulations.
