Don’t be fooled by this propaganda!
These pieces of irresponsible journalism have a single common purpose
- to discredit safe and effective natural remedies. The comments made
in these reports fly in the face of the huge volume of scientific
evidence accumulated over the past sixty years or more, that attests to the health
benefits of vitamins and other essential micronutrients.
The negative comments quoted in both the New York Times (April 29th)
and The Sunday Times (May 4th) follow in a long line of positions taken
by the organization referred to in these reports that include: Nothing
Is Wrong With DDT and Diesel Exhaust Emissions Pose No Risk To School
Children. The report of the Expert
Committee on Vitamins and Minerals (EVM) referred to by the Sunday Times and in the later reports, was first
published in August 2002. The EVM in fact failed in its brief, which
was to set so-called safe upper limits for certain vitamins and minerals.
Due to a lack of evidence of any adverse effects, the EVM managed to
propose safe upper limits for only 9 out of the 34 micronutrients that
it studied and the limits that it did propose are scientifically questionable.
As usual, the press are trying to blow this out of all proportion and
start a scare story. No doubt we shall shortly see the absurd 'Vitamin
C Causes Cancer' story making the headlines yet again. It seems that
the pharma-cartel have decided that attack is their best form of defence
and that creating panic (a la SARS) is a good tactic.
