Nanny's chums in the ever popular and helpful European Court have decided to tighten the rules on the sale of vitamins and minerals.
Needless to say, when Nanny says "tighten" she means BAN.
The ban will affect around 200 supplements, and put restrictions on the upper limits of vitamin doses.
It seems that Nanny wants to see vitamins and minerals controlled in the same way as conventional medicines.
You see, there is a danger that if you take too many high doses of vitamins you may injure yourself.
Well that is of course true, but surely the same can be said for eating eg too many carrots (you can turn orange from beta carrotine overdoses).
Doesn't this just come down to a matter of common sense?
Unfortunately Nanny wants to take away every aspect of responsibility that we have over our lives, and deny us freedom of choice.
That's the real issue:
Anyhoo, Nanny will be implementing her rules in August of this year; supplements will only be able to include vitamins and minerals taken from an approved list.
The Alliance for Natural Health (ANH), the Health Food Manufacturers' Association (HFMA) and the National Association of Health Stores (NAHS) have launched an appeal.
They argue that the legislation is too restrictive, and will threaten thousands of perfectly safe products.
Remember this, the real issue is FREEDOM.
