IAHF Webmaster: Please post under breaking news, whats new, all countries, what to do
We're down to "crunch" time. The lawsuit to overturn the EU Food Supplement Directive which has huge global implications, will cost upwards of $600,000. or more. It will be filed by the middle of August, but unless all of you help me to reach out to more people to generate the necessary donations, we could get caught short after the suit has been filed, and we have a deadline of the middle of August to do that.
Last night Rob Verkerk of the UK's Alliance for Natural Health and I were on the Jeff Rense Radio show which could also be heard over the web. Jeff did his usual great job of interviewing, Rob did a great job even though it was 3 am in England when he came on the air, and I also felt sharp so it will be well worth your while to hear what we had to say, it will help you to explain whats going on to more people, quickly, and we badly need that!
I am sure many of you missed the show because you were too busy to hear it or because you were asleep. It is extremely important that you listen to the audio archive of this show which is at http://www.soundwaves2000.com/rense/ [See July 10 show]
Please strongly encourage everyone you know, especially health food store owners and vitamin company owners to listen to it- we have a deadline of the middle of August to get the suit filed, and we can't afford to not break our butts to wake more people up.
Talking points that I used in the show can be downloaded from
WHAT TO DO:
Make a list in a notebook of every health food store near your house that you can take the time to drive to. Write down the name, address, and phone numbers of these stores. Leave space to write in the names of the owner and managers.
Go to these stores and give them copies of my article from http://www.iahf.com/anh_lawsuit.html Show them the taking points from this show. Urge them to listen to the audio archive, and explain to them that unless more people donate to the ANH lawsuit to overturn the EU Food Supplement Directive, that we won't be able to stop the globalization process in the future.
Keep in mind that many of these stores belong to NNFA which has only just started to wake up. Inform these stores that Rob Verkerk and David Hinde just spoke before the joint international committee of NNFA and AHPA at the NNFA Vitamin Trade show in Las Vegas. Inform the stores that this committee is finally grasping what I have been trying to get across for years: that IADSA can't be trusted. For info on that, they can look at http://iadsa-exposed.tripod.com
ANH's lawsuit needs and deserves support from vitamin companies, health food stores, alternative practitioners, and consumers world wide, but Rob and I are just two people. No one can reasonably expect he and I to do all the work here. It is not reasonable or realistic for any of you who receive it to take the attitude that you're "too busy" to do your share.
You wouldn't be on this email list if you didn't value your access to dietary supplements, but if you REALLY want to protect your access, you will take grass roots action: you WILL forward this to the attention of everyone you know who might also help. You WILL make a donation or more than one, and you WILL very STRONGLY and EMPHATICALLY urge more people to take action because its going to take a team effort to BEAT THE ODDS.
Will we pull off a miracle and overturn the EU Food Supplement Directive, kill the Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive, kill the Pharmaceuticals Directive,and stop the finalization of a vitamin standard at CODEX? Will we keep the USA from being forced via a WTO trade dispute (which FDA has set us up to lose and which congress has done nothing to stop) to harmonize our liberal food based supplement regs to a horrible unfolding international standard?
Don't leave it up to Rob Verkerk and I to make this happen---- we're trying our absolute hardest. Rob got up at 3 am UK time to go on the air on the Jeff Rense show which is broadcast out of California, and I was up til midnight being on the show. So we're working our butts off- putting in insane hours, but we REALLY CAN'T win this battle without help from a LOT more people than have been pitching in so far.
We're forced to redouble our effort to reach people because its the summer time when so many are away on vacation.
So please listen to the audio file of the Jeff Rense show last night, and please urge others to listen as well, and please help us reach out to vitamin companies- they've all been lied to about this.
We need to keep the ball rolling on the excellent presentation that Rob Verkerk did at the NNFA Vitamin Trade show recently in Las Vegas. Some companies are waking up, but many more need to wake up or we just won't beat the odds.
We have the numbers- there are millions of us world wide who use supplements, but the wool has been pulled over people's eyes. Massive spin has been done against my message over the years.
Please let me know what you have been doing and what you will still do from now on to help us get this message out- I need to hear back from you on this. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
