Government due to legislate to make vitamin supplements available only by prescription - petition

Hi there, please see below that was forwarded to me, and sign the petition if you want to preserve open access to supplements! Thanks

Dear Friends,
I know some of you will be familiar with this, for others you may not
be aware of what parliament is about to do in your name. Codex
Alimentairus is a law designed to hand over the control of natural
remedies to the pharmaceutical giants. One more attempt to regulate
us - with potentially dire consequences. Unless we take this last
opportunity and act now we will not be able to buy vitamins or
health/nutritional supplements without a doctor's prescription - they
will be banned from 31st December 2009.


You may think this can't happen, you may think why haven't I heard
about this before. The reason is that there are vested interests,
giant multinational pharmaceutical companies, and its not in their
interest that you know about and oppose this. They and our lawmakers
in Europe are banking on public apathy. Despite considerable pressure
already exerted our government is still planning to implement this law
- UNLESS THERE IS MASSIVE OPPOSITION IT WILL GO AHEAD.


Like many health and safety matters this was started with good
intentions, in 1962 by the United Nations, to establish international
free trade foods but has become a major threat to our civil liberties
and freedom of choice.


As the song says: YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'VE GOT TILL ITS GONE
