Talking of Parliament that reminds me...............I received an email from 10 Downing St today.

A month ago I signed a petition on the No 10 website calling on the government not to let the Big Pharma regulating body CODEX, start attempting to make the UK government prohibit for sale a lot of supplements and herbs used by patients for illnesses such as CFS.

Back has come the reply which basically states 'We no longer have the power to do this, supplements in the UK are now regulated by the European Union'.

People cannot get treatment from the mainstream health service for CFS and they could, in the not too distant future, find the supplements and herbs they are using to help themselves withdrawn at the whim of the pharmaceutical industry.

You have been warned, Big Brother has arrived.
