Taking Natural Health Products - How Risky Is It?Happened on 12 July 2012 | ( 0 ) Comments
Despite the fact that European legislation is increasingly restrictive on what we can say about food supplements and also what we can buy to keep ourselves healthy (along with the most important thing - good food), we can now legitimately show that food supplements are the safest substances to which we are exposed to on a regular basis.
How risky is it? Well the Alliance of Natural Health consulted an independent expert in risk assessment, Ron Law based in New Zealand, to look at the figures for the UK. Where possible the data was taken from UK government and official sources. The results are very interesting. Whilst the data only includes risk of death from acute causes and not from chronic long-term exposure of any substance. However it does pose the question whether the amount of time and clamping down and heavy handedness with legislation is really proportionate to the risks. This Bubble Chart really illustrates the point well.
Alliance for Natural Health site eight key points from the relative risk data.Smoking still appears to be the single riskiest activity for a UK citizen.
