This Article talks about the new "CODEX" act passed in Europe potentially banning many over-the-counter products including vitamins.
Most people thought it was NOT going to be enacted, and so caught many by (rude) surprise.
I have to say, those of us living in the USA so far have been lucky. We can legally access many beneficial substances as non-prescription. In fact, we sell many items that are prescription only in most countries other than the US.
Folks I talk to say the new CODEX should not impact us much, if at all. BUT always keep your eyes open for Congressional attempts to place the supplement business under big-pharma.
