EU agchem reforms threaten Spanish diet

Spaniards would lose their “healthy” Mediterranean diet were EU proposals on agrochemical registrations to be implemented. That is the opinion of the Spanish nutrition foundation’s president, Gregorio Varlea. He notes “various scientific studies” that forecast a significant reduction in the production of certain foodstuffs in the diet from any implementation of the revised agrochemical registration Directive 91/414. Further reductions in the consumption of fruit, vegetables, cereals and potatoes would aggravate already rising deficiencies in some vitamins, such as folic acid, the president warns. The EU Parliament approved revisions to Directive 91/414 last month that would restrict agrochemical registrations ( Agrow No 560, p 6).
