If your a New Zealander and have any interest in supplements/vitamins then please check this out.
The NZ government is trying introduce regulations that will require supplements to go through an expensive approval process and result in:
- Prices for New Zealand Vitamins and Supplements will increase between 30% and 100%
- Approximately 60% of your favourite New Zealand product range will be forced from the market due to the new regulatory costs
- Effective doses will be reduced, meaning many supplements will simply become ineffective. It will eventually be illegal to sell any supplement above the RDI (recommended daily intake).
Plus, this seems a little too convenient in the way it purports the whole bill to be about consumer safety, and ignores that even in comparison to highly regulated pharmaceutical drugs they are ridiculously safe.
Guess I’ll have to go somewhere else to be a transhumanist (they’ve already restricted Modafinil 🙁 ).
Leave my freedoms alone damn you government!
