Partial Victory Against Codex

EU Advocate General held: “The Food Supplements Directive infringes the principle of proportionality because basic principles of Community law, such as the requirements of legal protection, of legal certainty and of sound administration have not properly been taken into account.”

The European Court is expected to uphold this determination in June, thereby preserving access to Dietary Supplements. The Codex threat (see below) remains real, but this is a great victory that will allow the Health Freedom Movement to go from defense to offense:  we want our rights under DSHEA (the 1994 law that allows health claims for vitamins) to be strengthened and we want the rest of the world’s food supplement rules harmonized to our freedoms!
Congratulations to the Alliance and all its supporters!
