Apparently the goverment are trying to put a stop people being able to freely buy vitamins, minerals and supplements from shops. We will have to go through our GP's to get them!

Just had this as an email from a friend asking me to sign the petition.
The worldwide Pharmaceutical Industry is lobbying to remove the public's right to purchase natural products such a vitamins, minerals and supplements, so that they can hold the massive financial monopoly on drugs and medication, which they sell via allopathic doctors (GPs) and traditional medical providers. Many people see this as yet another infringement of our right to choose more gentle and less invasive natural ways to heal ourselves when we are unwell. If Codex Alimentarius is passed then natural nutrient supplements would be banned: it would be illegal for shops and stores to sell vitamins. Under Codex it would also become law that all foods would have to be sprayed with pesticides, and all animals for food would have to be injected with growth hormones and antibiotics, which would then end up in the food chain. This ultimately will affect the health of humanity worldwide. Also, all natural herbs would be banned, all alternative remedies would no longer be available: there could follow a snowball effect as country after country adopts this new legislation. This one-off email is to alert as many people as possible to this infringement of public choice, which could become law this year. If you care about the removal of your right to choose how to heal yourself then please visit the link below and sign an online petition, or write to your government representative, or perhaps start a campaign in your country to make the people's voice heard.

Source of this "apparent" information?
I know it's complete rubbish, but I need amusing.

Vitamins & Mineral supplements = pointless, eat some fruit and veg! :thumbsup:

I think the giveaway that it's ******** is Under Codex it would also become law that all foods would have to be sprayed with pesticides, and all animals for food would have to be injected with growth hormones and antibiotics, which would then end up in the food chain.

Do you actually believe this?

Makes a change from the usual 'msn is closing' or 'msn no longer free' emails I get forwarded :thumbsup:

Hilarious! Shame the government is not actually thinking of restricting the sale of unnecessary vitamins (some of which may be actively harmful) and unproven herbal remedies.

If they were pharmaceutical companies wouldn't be complaining as most of the vitamin pills & herbal remedies are made by companies owned by big pharmaceutical companies and they love the lack of regulation.
