Expert Group on Vitamins and Minerals (EVM)


The Expert Group on Vitamins and Minerals (EVM) was set up in 1998 to evaluate the safety of all the vitamins and minerals essential to health plus those currently available as food supplements or used in fortified foods.

EVM was made up of 11 members including scientists and representatives of consumer organisations and industry.

The group carried out a detailed toxicological review, including thorough risk assessments, with particular reference to safety for long-term use. As part of their drive to make their working methods as open as practically possible, the agenda, minutes, draft scientific reviews of each nutrient, and other working papers from each meeting were made available on this website throughout the process.

Observers attended meetings and comments and data were invited from both individuals and groups. In August 2002, a draft report was published giving all those interested in the work of the committee 12 weeks to comment.

There were 103 responses and EVM met in February 2003 to discuss these and finalise the report.

Publication of the final EVM report, which provides invaluable information for health professionals, and is essential reading for the food industry, academics and anyone who takes supplements, completes the work of the EVM.

You can read the report as a pdf or order a copy of Safe upper levels for vitamins and minerals: report of the expert group on vitamins and minerals ISBN 1-904026-11-7 for £19.95 by contacting:

Part 4 – Potassium

Das „Foresight-Amt“ Goverment Office for Science (der britischen Regierung) hat die Aufgabe der Regierung zu helfen systematisch über die Zukunft(sentwicklungen) nachzudenken „Our role is to help government think systematically about the future” (als „Daten für Taten“)

Das Foresight project “Global Food and Farming Futures”, das nun beendet ist (Feb 2011)

beschreibt wie sich die Welternährungslage in der Zukunft entwickeln kann, und wie die Poltik auf die Herausforderungen reagieren sollte.

Dazu gib es nicht nur den Abschlußbericht (final report) und die Vorschläge welche politischen Aktionen (Actionplan) empfohlen werden, sondern auch eine Vielzahl von dazu gehörenden wissenschaftlichen Dokumentationen; Reports and publications

So wird der Zustand der globalen Welternährungssituation dokumentiert, und welche Herausforderungen sich ergeben (evidence and challenges)

13 Synthese Reports und die Challenges

Modell Vorstellungen – abhängige Variablen (input – jetzt drivers) für globale Welternährungslage

Studien zu den Drivers – und weiteren Aspekten – wie Situation in Afrika
