Európska petícia za zrušenie zákazu dovozu a predaja neeurópskych liečivých bylín od 1.V.2011

28.04.2011 22:41

Ing. Marián FILLO

 

       Ako som už naznačil v hromadnom maile z polky januára 2011, zanedlho začne platiť celoeurópsky (myslí sa tým EÚ) zákaz dovozu a predaja bylinných liečiv pochádzajúcich z Ázie, Afriky, Ameriky, ... Skrátka mimo Európy.

       Tým je zásadne ohrozená ďalšia existencia ajurvédskej, čínskej či inej neeurópskej tradičnej medicíny na území EÚ.

       Tento zákaz si zrejme vylobovali farmaceutické firmy, ktorým buď klesajú tržby kvôli prechodu nespokojných pacientov na alternatívne metódy liečby, alebo sa obávajú, že sa tak v dohľadnej dobe stane. Sú to tie isté farmaceutické firmy, ktoré napr. na Slovensku presadili do povinného očkovania (pre drvivú väčšinu slovenských detí) úplne zbytočné očkovanie proti nákazlivej žltačke typu B alebo proti pneumokokom.

       V prípade, že Vám tieto nenažrané molochy lezú na nervy, ležia v žalúdku, či pijú krv, podpíšte, prosím, túto petíciu, aj keby ste neboli nikdy v živote zákazníkmi ajurvédskej, čínskej, či inej neeurópskej medicíny. Podpisový formulár je na adrese: http://www.avaaz.org/en/eu_herbal_medicine_ban.

Subject: EU: 3 Days to Save Herbal Medicine!


Dear friends,


In 3 days, a new EU directive will ban much of herbal medicine, denying us safe remedies and feeding the profits of big pharma. Let's raise a massive outcry to push the Commission to fix the Directive, and our national governments to refuse to implement it. Let's get to 1 million voices to save herbal medicine:
In 3 days, the EU will ban much of herbal medicine, pressing more of us to take pharmaceutical drugs that drive the profits of big Pharma.

The EU Directive erects high barriers to any herbal remedy that hasn't been on the market for 30 years -- including virtually all Chinese, Ayurvedic, and African traditional medicine. It's a draconian move that helps drug companies and ignores thousands of years of medical knowledge.

We need a massive outcry against this. Together, our voices can press the EU Commission to fix the directive, push our national governments to refuse to implement it, and give legitimacy to a legal case before the courts. Sign below, forward this email to everyone, and let's get to 1 million voices to save herbal medicine:

It's hard to believe, but if a child is sick, and there is a safe and natural herbal remedy for that illness, it may be impossible to find that remedy.

On May 1st the Directive will create major barriers to manufactured herbal remedies, requiring enormous costs, years of effort, and endless expert processes to get each and every product approved. Pharmaceutical companies have the resources to jump through these hoops but hundreds of small- and medium-sized herbal medicine businesses, across Europe and worldwide, will go bust.

We can stop this. The directive has been passed in the shadows of the bureaucracy, and it cannot stand under the light of democratic scrutiny. The EU Commission can withdraw or amend it, and a court case is currently challenging it to do so. If European citizens everywhere come together now, it will give legitimacy to the legal case, and add to growing pressure on the Commission. Sign below, and forward this email to everyone:

There are arguments for better regulation of natural medicine, but this draconian directive harms the ability of Europeans to make safe and healthy choices. Let's stand up for our health, and our right to choose safe herbal medicine.

With hope and determination,

Ricken, Iain, Giulia, Benjamin, Alex, Alice, Pascal, Luis and the rest of the Avaaz team.
