Save the natural herbs of Europe! - Please sign petition!

Save natural remedies in Europe. Keep your freedom of choice. The European Union has approved under THMPD Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive, which will come into force on the 30th of April 2011, to stop our right to use alternative medicine as free choice.

The aim is to secure billions of Euros of profits for the pharmaceutical industry for years to come by obliging patients to use their drugs instead of alternative natural medicine. Plants that have been used by herbalists for thousands of years would need approval which would be very costly ranging around £100,000 per herb and obviously totally impossible to afford by the individual herbalists, ensuring the monopoly of the market for big pharmaceutical corporations.

Please watch the video and sign the petition at http://www.savenaturalhealth.eu

Thank you!
