Stop EU legislation wiping out ancient and effective traditional herbal medicinal cultures

It's serious and it's imminent. After April 2011 lots of herbs from traditional cultures (Chinese medicine, Ayurveda) will disappear unless we campaign hard. We have to stop EU legislation steam-rollering traditional medicinal cultures in Europe.

        I afraid it's all about money
        Sign the petitions, there are plenty going around.

        I have just read the paper back book called "Skewed" by Martin J Walker
        Shocking!!

        This is criminal greed on the part of the drug companies and will rob us of our choice to maintain our health in the manner we see fit. Please sign.

        This legislation threatens our rights to choose how we heal ourselves - no-one has the right to dictate what our options should be - is this really the 21st century - only we can choose to make a stand and demand our rights

        Herbal medicine has been in existence since time immemorial. How dare the powers that be remove our right to practice it!

        As someone who has MS and relies very much on alternative therapies, supplements and superfoods I really don't want to give up my freedom of choice on this one!! There is no way that I would touch the pharmaceutical drugs ever... !

        My body, my health, my choice. I use western medicine aswell as herbal medicine depening on the severity of my illness. Herbal medicine is always my first choice and i find it very effective. It is not right to take this choice away from people. No one is being harmed from hebal medicines.

        This legislation is against human rights. These are natural herbs that have been used safely for thousands of years.

        It is our right to chose what supplements we wish to take. By taking supplements (which I pay for) saves me going to the Doctors and taking medication which of course would need to be paid for by the NHS so I am saving them money.

        Dictatorships happen because there is not enough group consciousness. This will all end up like Red Square August '91, but this time it will be in Brussels, once they go too far with controlling our lives, and start telling us what they will allow us to eat. Oh no! They already have!

        I agree it is outragous, it is our human right to take which supplement we want/require. I am not happy that I will not be able to purchase the products that help me live each day, help me get out of bed and live as normal a life as possible. Are they trying to kill us off early, by not allowing us to have the health supplements we need.

        I think we should stage a protest. Where would we need to go with our banners and how many people could we get together.......

        Another disgraceful attempt to undermine natural substances and remedies. Today natural substances are suspect and drugs seen as the answer to every ailment. Street drugs are not the real problem, it is prescription drugs. Drugs = sickness and/or death! The human body has the innate wisdom to heal itself and natural remedies and therapies help to restore balance. Just like here in the USA, I believe this is about controlling access to healthy alternatives and selling more drugs.
