*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo(Partly UPDATED)/- EU Parliament's Environment, Health and Food Safety Committee's vice-President, "Green" MEP Benedek Javor, speaking to "Eurofora", strongly Condemned an attempt to Legitimise the use of Chemicals suspected to provoke Cancer and/or other Health Problems mainly in "Kebab" Meet, Against which Voted, afterwards, also a clear Majority of 373 MEPs in the Plenary session of this week in Strasbourg, (See Infra).

Even if, for Procedural Technicalities, that subsequent Move isn't reportedly enough yet (allegedly because of a Required "Qualified Majority") in order to automatically Stop a Controversial EU Commission Draft Regulation threatening to Openly Allow the use of such Glyphosate in "Kebap" and other such street shops, largely used by unwarned People, nevertheless, the Serious Doubts provoked by Conflicting Technical Expertises, and a partial Lack of Transparency, should, normally, Dissuade from Exposing EU Citizens to "UnKnown" Risks, without a Serious, in Depth, and Transparent Scientific Assessment, he pointed out in substance.

-----------------------


Particularly when it comes almost at the Same Time that Cancer new illnesses have already Reached More than 716.000 per year, and are expected to Augment considerably, from 3,6 Millions up to 4,3 Millions during the Next 2 Decades, as Professor Josef Puchta, of the German Center of Research on Cancer DKFZ, has just anounced, according to Press Reports. To the point that, Worldwide, several People start to Wonder what really happened with all those Millions and Millions € of Public and Private Funds spend in Genetic Technologies during recent decades, allegedly "for the Fight Against Cancer", withOut any known notable positive Result, since Deaths, instead of being Reduced, on the Contrary Persist and even Augment Further...


-------------------------------


- Concerning, particularly, "Phosphoric Acid" and other Doubtful Chemicals destinated to ordinary Meat Food, such as "Kebab", etc., for which EU Parliament had Decided to Debate and Vote a Resolution during this week's Plenary Session in Strasbourg, "Eurofora" asked vice-President Javor, if he really believed that this was a particularly "Important" Issue, taking also into account the Fact that such Foodstaffs were very Largely Consumed by People who are Unaware of the various possible Health Dangers.


------------------------------------

 - "I think that it's an Important Issue", vPresident Javor stressed from the outset, in Reply to "Eurofora"s above-mentioned Question


- "It's not only about Glyphostat, not only about Food Safety, but it's also about Transparency and Accountability of the (EU) Institutions", in general, concerning particularly such matters of Human Health and Nature, he warned, pointing at a Wider scope.


-"The Problem with Glyphosite is that we don't exactly Know the Effects of that"


- ".. EFSA tells us that it's Harmless, it has no Cancerogenic effects, IAT say that there Are !"


- "But it shows that there are Adverse Effects (Facts ?)


 => "It's a Scientific Debate, which should be Solved in a Scientific Way"

- "But EFSA does Not Publish some of the Studies which were used for its Conclusion that there is No Cancerogenic effect of Glaphosyte".


- "And some among those Studies that they used, are Studies coming from the MONSANTO (notorious Multinational Bio-Tech. Corporation from the USA, known for its "Hard" Stance to Impose and spread Genetic Manipulation of Plants/Animals, World-wide, f.ex. Corn, GMOs etc)


=> "So, we have Reasons to Question the Reliability of those Studies"...


>>> - "So, I think that a 1st, and most Important, Start for the Dialogue, would be a Will to Make the relevant European Procedure much more Transparent and Accountable, and for Other Issues" too, he concluded.


+ For that purpose, vice-President Javor told "Eurofora" that, already, he had "Met with the (EU Justice) Court"s representatives, Earlier Today

ep_resolution_on_kebap_health_risks_400

(+ UPDATED) During the subsequent Vote; at EU Parliament's Plenary, a Big Majority of 403 MEPs Voted Yes, or Abstained, on a Resolution Asking to Stop that Risk.  Only a comparatively Small Minority of 272 Voted Against such a Resolution, which "Oppose(d) the adoption of the draft Commission regulation", and "Calle(d) on the (EU) Commission to Withdraw the Draft Regulation".

-----------


Without initially mentioning explicitly Cancer yet, that important Resolution Warns, f.ex., also about "Cardio-Vascular Diseases", that such Chemicals "may impair Bone Health", and/or provoke various Other "Far Reaching Public Health Implications"

Such possible Risks could have a Wide Impact on Many People's Health, since "by means of derogation after derogation, the use of Phosphates as Additives has been approved in More and more Meat preparations, thereby legalising usage", while "Phosphate additives have been and Still are being illegally used in frozen Vertical Spits (f.ex. "Kebab", etc)  in several Member States", as EU Parliament's Resolution Denounces.


Moreover, "Frozen Vertical Meat Spits ("Kebap", etc) are destined for the Out-of-Home sector" (f.ex. Street "Kebab-Shops"), and "that means that Consumers are Not Informed about the use of phosphates as food additives in these products, since they are Not Labelled" at all...


Therefore, EU Parliament's Resolution also "Calls on the (EU) Commission to effectively Verify that Member States adequately enforce current Union Legislation pertaining to the use of Food Additives in Meat preparations".


And that crystal-clear Majority of MEPs also Remind the Fact that, according to EU Law (article 6 of Regulation EC No 1333/2008), "a Food Additive may be included ... Only If, on the basis of the Scientific Evidence available, it does Not pose a Safety Concern to the Health of the consumer at the level of use proposed", as a matter of General Principle.

   Renew Europe's Historic Legend with Parthenon's pure white marble at the eve of crucial 2009 EU Elections, was the ambition of an interesting Art Exhibition, with more topical Symbols than expected, organized by EU Parliament's 1st vice-President Rodi Kratsa-Tsagaropoulou and MEP Marie Panayotopoulos- Cassiotou, Chair of the Inter-group on Family policy, during March A session in Strasbourg.     

According to the Ancient Legend, God Zeus, charmed by young Girl Europe, was trasformed into a strong Bull with Wings, and when she tamed him with Human affection, they flew over the Sea to live together in a New Land with large, fertile landscapes.  


- "There, they saw the Continent with a "Large Front" ("Eureia -opse" in Greek => Eur-opse => Europe)", reminded the Sculptor, Mary Papaconstantinou, of the European Women Association, honored by awards in Paris, Athens and Strasbourg.

    Thus, Europe's Legend combines Symbols of Energy and Strength, with caring Human personality, to bring towards New, large Horizons :

    - "Modern Art for this Ancient Greek Legend here in Strasbourg reminds that Europe, placing Human dignity at its heart, always finds the strength to overcome any Crisis towards New achievements. And EU Parliament offers Citizens a chance to artfully interact", said MEP Panayotopoulos-Cassiotou.

    Structured like some Rembrand's pictural sequences, Europe's sculptural exhibition forms a series of many statutes, sized and flat as a PC screen, representing many scenes inspired from the original Legend, "according to Moschos' text, a Writer of the 2nd century B.C.", said Sculptor Mary to "EuroFora".  

    Made by sparkling pure white Marble full of Symbols, they incite to think but also to act, as in front of a Book with half of its pages full of written text, but another half, free to write on white paper..

    While several EU politicians think that one of the most important characteristics of the 2009 EU Elections is that from their outcome may depend Europe's Identity and Future, Culture Minister of Greece, Antonis Samaras (a former MEP) send the message that, precisely, such modern Art linked to Historic legends may help "EU Citizens search the origins of Europe's Identity".

     - "The Legend says that they founded a New City, Thebes, and that reminds us that Europe is always a project of Invention and Creation", added EU Parliament's vice-President, Rodi Kratsa - Tsagaropoulou.

    Sculptor Mary Papaconstantinou said that she "tried for years to find the same White Marble from Penteli Mountain that was used by Praxitelis and all those who created Parthenon", symbol of Democracy and one of the 7 wonders of the World.

    - "By shaping this millenary Greek Marble to revive Europe's Ancien Legend with Modern Art, it reminds that Europe is a Hope for a better Future after Crisis, combining Energy for Development, with care for the Human person", said the sculptor's compatriot from Chios island, famous from French artist Delacroix's historic painting, MEP Panayotopoulos - Cassiotou.

    She now lives with her Family close to Rhine river, at EU's heart, near Bonn, where had started to work for the first time on European issues the new EU Parliament's Secretary General, Klaus Welle :

    By a symbolic coincidence, Europe's legend built anew with Parthenon's marble, marked for ever the beginning of young and energetic Welle's duties as new head of EU Parliament's administration, since he saluted the retiring, out-going S.G., the experienced Harold Rohmer, shortly afterwards, at another gathering on the same floor of Louise Weiss' superb building in Strasbourg...

    Organisers of both events said that it was a pure coincidence. People are free to believe them, or hope otherwise...


**********************

    They disagree in almost everything, except from one thing :

- EU Parliament's Art unites even opposed politicians in a common belief for Europe : Cyprus' example...


imag0859_400

Rarely united together, but posing for "EuroFora" with the statute of Europe and Zeus flying over the Sea, ChristianDemocrat/EPP's MEP Yannis Kasulides, a frontrunner Presidential candidate in 2008, former Foreign Minister and Government Spokesman, and EuroLeft's MEP Kyriakos Triantafylides, Chairman of EU - Palestinian Council delegation, from the governing party AKEL (new Left) of the elected President, disagree on almost everything, except from their common claim that Europe of the Ancient Legend, when she flew with God Zeus from Ancient Phynecia to the West, must have crossed the island of Cyprus !

Hard to prove the contrary, 3.000 years later...

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
