Nutrition and HIV:
Loosing rights to choose
by Bradford McIntyre
Are you aware you're losing your rights to choose? Have you noticed your choices of natural health products
for optimizing your health are disappearing?
Why? Because of legislation passed by European Union
(EU) Directive on Dietary Supplements and the fact that other
countries are bound to the rules and laws of the World Trade Organization.
In the early years of the HIV and AIDS epidemic,
there was no treatment. I was witness to and learned from people
who were using vitamins, minerals, herbs and botanical supplements
to combat illness and/or boost their immune system. When the pharmaceutical
drug AZT was first introduced as a treatment for HIV and AIDS,
instead I chose vitamin supplements as a means to boost my immune
system and stay healthy. I did not take HIV/AIDS medications for
13 years, out of the 20 years I have been infected!
It wasn't until 1997, I first realized the threat
the Codex Alementarius posed. Throughout the years I have watched
closely, signed petitions and written to the Canadian government
expressing my opposition to the German delegation's proposal to
the World Health Organization's Codex Alementarius, the Committee
on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses.
I believed then, as I do now that if regulations
are put into place, my rights as a consumer of nutritional supplements
will be jeopardized. Dietary supplements which promote my well-being
will become more costly and harder to obtain, and no supplements
will be available for therapeutic or preventative uses without
prescriptions. Dosages will have minimal amounts with higher costs!
By August of 2005, 5,000 products will disappear?
An imminent threat of being robbed of the right
Fight to keep our supplements!
We are not only ill informed but governments around
the world are making these deliberate legislative decisions without
informing the general public! The mainstream media as well has
avoided coverage of this legislation!
That being said, you can look to the Internet for
all the details on how this legislation has been taking place,
and get involved!
