This month the govt together with the euro union will exclude over 200 vitamins (particularly high doses of vit b complex ) from our shelves.

What do you think the intent of this is?? Have been reading the codex alimentarius which is a document developed to push vitamins as a "drug". Will we be having to ask our doctors for a prescripiton for Vit C soon?

All very depressing and hardly a word about it in the news.

Just what we needed, another rule to remind us we're so stupid we don't know what's best for our bodies.

I'm extremely distressed by this.

Read the Codex Alimentarius and see who is behind it and you will be weeping.

I was talking to the lady in the health shop about this last week. She said you'll still be able to buy everything on line as you don't need a licence to do so. So they've started an internet shop. Trouble is there wont be any 'knowledge' available which is a shame if you're not quite sure what it is you want.
