Question for written answer E-010118-15
to the Commission
Rule 130
Kateřina Konečná (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  Foods used in alternative medicine
 Answer in writing 

A growing number of Czech citizens have voiced fears that in putting forward the regulation on novel foods, the Commission may be trying to prohibit the consumption of various herbs, algae and mushrooms from third countries which are often used in alternative (e.g. Chinese or Indian) medicine.

If this is true, about a quarter of Czech citizens would be deprived of their right to choose how they are treated.

1. Does the Commission plan to ban the sale of products which are used in alternative third‐country (e.g. Chinese or Indian) medicine?2. Can the Commission confirm that it does not plan to interfere in the use of alternative medicine?
