Incremental restriction by European authorities of modalities and practices associated with natural health is a familiar pattern. They tell us they want to protect our health. But proposals for restricting maximum levels of vitamins and minerals in food supplements EU-wide, could prevent many Europeans from consuming enough of those nutrients to derive the majority of benefits.
It’s an odd situation: on one hand, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has green-lighted over 50 genetically modified crops, yet Europe’s highest authority on food safety has only found around 250 ingredients in the entire food supply to be beneficial to humans!
And that’s why we’re very happy to announce today that we have commissioned Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) to figure out a much better, and more scientifically rational, way of determining maximum levels.
