Joining the Dots: The EU is designed to protect patents and corporate control – not the health and interests of its citizens
By Paul Anthony Taylor – The European Commission's Directorate General for Health and Consumers claims that its job is to "help make Europe's citizens healthier, safer and more confident." In reality however, and as more and more people are beginning to discover, the European Union's primary concerns are not those of ordinary citizens but rather the interests of multi-billion euro European corporations and their patents on health-endangering products such as GMO seeds, pharmaceutical drugs, artificial food additives and pesticides.
As this article shows, the root-cause motivation behind the recent absurd attacks on organic farming and vitamin supplements is the fact that organic seeds and vitamins cannot be patented and, along with other natural products, therefore threaten the multi-billion euro profits from the sale of GMOs and pharmaceutical drugs.
Read on to discover how the European Union is misleading you about your health and why a Europe for the People, by the People – as opposed to a Europe of Big Business – is now more urgently needed than ever.
