They know a lot about herbs, but they aren't really for health freedom despite what they try to claim. ABC appears to be funded by members of the European-American Phytomedicines Coalition, a front group for German phytopharmaceutical companies which have formed American and Canadian partnerships in order to try to expand their market. ABC is a member of IADSA, an umbrella group of vitamin trade associations which is controlled by Pharma. ABC is doing spin against IAHF's Codex mssg.

CAMPAIGN AGAINST FRAUDULENT MEDICAL RESEARCH: (Australia and International)
The Campaign Against Fraudulent Medical Research is a non-profit group dedicated to promoting true health and a clean environment by supporting valid research, disease prevention, freedom of choice in health care, a reduction in the use of toxicants, and independence of health care and environmental protection from the dictatorial influences of the drug/chemical interests.
CAFMR seeks to inform the public of: invalid and fraudulent medical research and products safety testing; the resultant damage to health care, the environment, our health, and the economy;
the drug/chemical interests (and their allies) who are responsible for the above and their dictatorial influences over health and environmental matters. CAFMR contains the Australian mirror site for IAHF
www.pnc.com.au/~cafmr

EUROPEAN HEALTH PRODUCTS MANUFACTURERS ASSN
The EHPM fully supports the principles of free trade within a Single European Market. Regulation for EHPM products is highly divided throughout Europe: the same vitamin product, for example, may be considered a food in one country, a dietetic food in another and a medicine in another. This situation places unnecessary obstacles in the way of exporters.
The EHPM considers that if European Union legislation is to be of real benefit to manufacturers, retailers and consumers, it must respect three fundamental principles:
Firm Scientific Basis
Legislation should have a firm scientific basis and should be reviewed in the light of scientific developments. In the area of health products, the science has moved forward dramatically over the past few years. Legislation should be flexible enough to change as scientific knowledge progresses.
Consumer Protection and Freedom of Choice:
Legislation should provide adequate and appropriate protection to the consumer, while guaranteeing the consumers' right to choose. Legislation should not restrict the availability of safe products to consumers.
Informed Consumer Choice:
Legislation should permit manufacturers to provide useful educational and factual information to consumers about products to allow an informed choice to be made. As products become increasingly sophisticated, it is essential that manufacturers are permitted to label products in a full and useful way. For products sold as foods, such labelling should cover the role of the product in health maintenance and protection.
The EHPM considers that the above principles are a fair and rational basis for legislation and, together with a healthy lifestyle, form a platform for increased consumer health throughout Europe.
