|UPDATE: Switzerland Takes a Stand for Natural Health
Page created 3/26/09
Great news for the health freedom movement!
In direct rebellion against the severe anti-vitamin law already passed in the European Union, (the
EU Food Supplements Directive), the first European country to protect complementary and
alternative medicine within its own Constitution is Switzerland - with over 67 percent of voters in
favour of the new Constitutional article.
The new Constitutional article states that their own federal government will ensure that, within their scope of
jurisdiction, complimentary medicine will be taken into consideration. In reality there is already a greater recognition
of natural therapists in Switzerland.
With this article being passed it demonstrates Switzerland's commitment to expand health care choices and
eliminate conflicts between orthodox medicine and alternative or innovative therapies. In fact, professorships in
alternative medicine are now being created in Swiss Universities so that, in the future, medical students will be able
to add complimentary therapies to their medical training and be able to legally apply them in their professional
practices. The Higher Education and Training Awards Council have already begun validating complimentary
We salute the government and citizens of Switzerland for taking this stand and while we do expect to see their rights challenged in the
European courts, we commit to fully support them in their efforts to maintain this position and protect the rights of their citizens to have
complete access to the benefits of ALL available science and therapies.

US Scientists confirmed the association of beta-carotene with a significant reduction in the risk of uterine cancer.
According to new scientific research reported in Cancer Causes and Control magazine every 1,000 microgram increase in antioxidants, in
proportion to the individual's caloric intake, resulted in as much as a 12 percent reduction of cancer risk. Further, an increased intake of
vitamins C and E and beta-carotene may reduce the risk of cancer of the uterus, according to a new review and meta-analysis of the
science to date.
Similarly, for every 50 milligram of vitamin C per 1,000 *kcal the risk of endometrial cancer was reduced by 15 per cent, and for every 5
milligram increase of vitamin E per 1,000 kcal the risk of endometrial cancer was reduced by 9 per cent.
*Kcal - the unit of energy equal to 1,000 calories
Endometrial (lining of the uterus) cancer is the fifth most common cancer among women worldwide - around 7,000 American women die
from the disease annually - but incidence of this form of cancer varies more than 10-fold worldwide.

NOTE: Your own, personal right of access to vitamins, herbs, amino acids and traditional medicines is at real risk. The United Nations'
Codex Alimentarius Commission is working to export the severe anti-vitamin laws of the European Union into all UN Member nations in
the form of recommendations and international trade and manufacturing standards.
Existing trade agreements support Codex's power to dramatically influence the laws even in "safe haven" countries like the US.

Send it to your friends, family and associates. The video gives an overview of the story and refers to the WINHS web site.
It will take a thunderstorm of new members, increased support and significant participation to revert the current legislative trend to outlaw
vitamins and other natural products - even in natural health "safe haven" countries like the United States.
Your help is appreciated and more important - it is also quite vital.
All the best,
