Natural and complementary therapies under attack
The modern food and pharmacuetical industry have spent many millions of pounds and much time over the years trying to fight against our increasing interest in natural health and complementary therapies.
With new allegations almost daily pointing towards problems with our manufactured foods and the side effects of prescription drugs it is no wonder that more and more of us are turning to more natural ways of managing our health. However, the food and pharmaceutical industries are fighting back with an increasing number of pieces of legislation (mainly from the EU) that are designed to restrict our freedom of choice about how we choose to treat ourselves and our bodies.
We would like to urge everyone to consider doing something to prevent these pieces of legislation being enacted, in many cases without our knowledge or our mandate and you can do so by writing to your MP or MEP demanding that our levels of supplements remain safeguarded and that the EU is held accountable for flouting the its own Food Supplements Directive. You can find your MP by telephone 020 7219 4272 and your MEP by phoning 020 7227 4300.
