ANH-International Feature: Is the USA setting itself up to squeeze out dietary supplements like in Europe?

9

One of the benefits of being part of an international organization is the invaluable insights we’re able to gain from having colleagues overseas at ANH-Europe.

In many areas of health practice and education, the European model is greatly restricted when compared to the US model. This means we can often look to what has already happened in Europe if we want to understand the consequences of many of the laws and regulations proposed here in the United States, as the laws and regulations often mimic those already in place in in the European Union.

This week, a special feature from ANH-International takes a look at what’s happening with supplements in the USA, how it mirrors the European model, and why that spells bad news for American supplement consumers. We think our readers will find this piece informative and illuminating, and help you to better understand the challenges we face here in the USA:

  • This is exactly what is going to happen if The National Health Care Plan continues. Significant Europeans have all ready joined committees in Congress to explain how their National Health Care Plan is put together and vitamins and minerals are regulated and only synthetic are prescribed. The difference about the European Countries is that every body has a garden and fresh cruciferous foods are within reach all year round.

    I thought the U.S. Constitution protected us against government meddling in our dietary and medical preferences. What kind of tyranny are we developing into when powerful drug and “mainstream” medical interests are allowed to restict our freedom?

  • Dale Thomas

    The government needs to get out of our lives, and quit taking away the safe and effective products to treat ourselves. They all have their hands in Big Pharma’s pockets. What a bunch of mean spirited Looser’s !!!!

  • Suzanne

    They are doing this so it figures into their desire to destroy the US. If people are sick and they only have drugs to fall back on then Big Pharma will thrive. So we have to keep fighting this takeover. It can be a little hard to understand because it’s not spoken about on mainstream media. Watch the movie Thrive and see what’s really going on and offers some real solutions.

    Please continue to let us choose the natural medications of choice. I used two different products from a health food store when I was going through my radiation treatments for breast cancer. Because of it I did not miss an hour of work and 4 days before my last treatment I walked 4 miles.

    Many of those in the medical field (doctors and pharmaceutical companies) are fixed on making as much money as possible. That is why they are trying to restrict our access to vitamins and supp;imentsb
