The Transatlantic Trade Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a trade deal between the EU and the US – and is anything but harmless. The deal boosts corporate power and endangers people and the planet. Conducted in clandestine and also known as the Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA), the talks are taking place under heavy influence of the multibillion-dollar global pharmaceutical investment industry.
Under the guise of “free trade” and “international harmonization“, the negotiations primarily serve the goal of protecting the trillion-dollar-per-year global business with patented pharmaceutical drugs. The greatest obstacle towards this goal is the “Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act” (DSHEA) – the law that has guaranteed free access to natural therapies for millions of Americans since 1994.
Across the United States, every member of the natural health community, every health food store and every citizen needs to be alerted: TTIP/TAFTA threatens U.S. vitamin freedom and would inevitably destroy DSHEA! Every citizen in Europe also needs to be alerted: TTIP/TAFTA would inevitably flood Europe with GMOs, destroy environmental safeguards and threaten entire economies!
