International Attempts to Restrict Your Access to Supplements 

Law vs Supplements




For several years, the Doctor Yourself Newsletter has discussed a United Nations effort to restrict dietary supplements. This scheme is known as CODEX. Though there are those who will reassure you that what happens to the rest of the world will not affect Americans, they are gravely mistaken. More to the point, even if that were true (which it is not), how can we accept injustice for all of the people of world except those lucky enough to live in the United States? ALL people, everywhere, need vitamin supplements. In fact, the poorest folks need them even more than we do.

Disease, not war, is the single largest killer on Earth. Optimum nutrition strengthens bodies. Supplements are the answer, not the problem.

The world's people, like you, do not want their vitamins taken away from them. But make no mistake about it: that is in fact happening. The goal of the pharmaceutically-driven CODEX Food Supplements Directive is to take over the medical world. That means you.

If you would like more background information:


Get your Congressperson's and Senators' addresses, and write to them today. Their addresses are easy to find at (or

You can send an email letter to them directly from that website, but remember this: A HANDWRITTEN, PLAIN-OLD U.S. POSTAL SERVICE 39-CENT LETTER **ALWAYS** HAS MORE IMPACT. When you write, be sure to ask for a response from your senators. . . and please share those responses with me at, would you?

Abram Hoffer, M.D., offers this comment on Europe's recently approved, continent-wide ban on consumer access to vitamin supplements:

"Your recent newsletter proves very clearly that modern medicine is not scientific, that it is full of prejudice, illogic and susceptible to advertising. Doctors are not taught to reason. They are programmed to believe in whatever their medical schools teach them and the leading doctors tell them. And over the past 20 years the drug companies with their enormous wealth have taken medicine over and now control its research, what is taught and the information released to the public. Very important information in your newsletter. If the European Union has its way, all consumer access to nutrients throughout Europe will be prohibited, while the massive drug companies will still be permitted to experiment all they like with their dangerous potions."

Please write to your Congressperson and to both your Senators today. And how about sending a letter to your local newspaper? My easy how-to hints to help you are at

This is serious. If we do not act now, we can expect to lose our access to nutrition supplements just as has already happened in Europe. (

It can happen here. Don't let it!
