Defend traditional medicines and prevent pharmaceutical monopoly on remedies.

Late in the day (this directive comes into force on 30 April), another dimension of the Freedom to Choose is under threat, but there is still time to remonstrate:

This video tells us that it is already illegal in Canada to grow aromatic herbs in your garden (Bill C-51). It speaks of the loss of thousands of remedies.

It tells us that pharmaceutical companies are under the spotlight because of a number of drugs scandals (among which we can include Champix). This directive will give such companies a monopoly and render illegal across Europe thousands of remedies collected over thousands of years from countries all over the world.

The Alliance for Natural Health has raised funds to bring action to court, to convict the European Union of abuse of authority. This initiative needs evidence of support from the public.

Sign against THMPD (Traditional Herbal Medicines Products Directive) (Directive 2004/24/EC) here.
