Codex Crash Course

Codex Alimentarius was founded in 1962 by the UN to establish international free trade foods. It is jointly administered by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) through annual and regional meetings.

Codex sets advisory standards and guidelines which nations may adopt or modify. If they modify them without special protections, nations may be found guilty of setting up trade barriers by the World Trade Organization (WTO), and be assessed crippling financial penalties. If, on the other hand, countries deviate from Codex texts by creating a scientifically strong alternative guideline or standard, and pass enabling legislation (a process we refer to as "The Codex Two Step") they are free to deviate from Codex without being found guilty of creating barriers to trade. WTO has repeatedly refused to grant Codex a unique position as THE international food code, saying it is one of several such standards.

Codex decisions are, however, often perceived as inevitable by many developing nations which are not aware of the flexibility to protect the health of their people through the Two Step Process.

Codex' decisions are heavily influenced by the desires of multinational special interest groups who send representatives to sit on national committees and as NGO delegates. Because Codex is so heavily influenced by corporate interests, its decisions are, in our opinion, often helpful to corporate well-being but strikingly detrimental to human and einviromental health.

Codex pertains to every bite - and kind of - food traded internationally and allows high doses of pesticides, veterinary drugs, synthetic hormones, contaminants, artificial sweeteners, and other dangerous compounds and processes (like mandated irradiation of food) while it forbids health claims for food.

Natural Solutions Foundation has identified the Problem: Codex and its web of influences. We have generated the Reaction: hundreds of thousands of voting consumers contacting the FDA or Congress through our web site, demanding their rights. And we offer the Solution: the Natural Solutions Program, including our Codex 2 Step - how countries can opt out.

Government Watch

This is NSF's Government Watch page. First... the FDA. Don't turn your back! You can never tell what the FDA might do next... It is true, though, in response to your hundreds of thousands of complaints to the FDA early in '07 about their infamous anti-CAM (complementary and alternative "medicine") guidance, the bureaucrat who wrote the guidance told one interviewer, "I am not Darth Vadar..." -- we were so relieved! So we do really need to keep a watch on FDA, and Codex and the USDA, North American Union, etc., etc... Our esteemed Foundation President, Gen. Bert Stubblebine, asked me to keep up with this section of the website and I am happy to do so. We've decided to link this page to my blog as an easy way to update you, since the Vitamin Lawyer Health Freedom Blog keeps a watch on the actions of the various agencies that think they know more about your health needs than you... http://vitaminlawyerhealthfreedom.blogspot.com

And of course, you can access Dr. Laibow's blog, which often covers her attendance at Codex and similar meetings, at: http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/index.php/index.php?page_id=219 Thanks for stopping by and checking our blogs! Second... Forced Drugging and Compulsory Vaccination.We know you consider forced drugging, especially when it involves children and vaccinations, to be as important an issue for us as the Codex issue. We've established a Yahoo!Group Forum to mobilize support to finally stop all compulsory vaccination. It's a new group and what happens with it depends on all of you... please join if you want to be especially active on this issue. We will continue to inform the eAlert list of vaccination developments, but the Forum will coordinate netroots (that's Internet grassroots...) activities to protect our children... and all of us! Join here: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/no-forced-vaccination/join

Codex Alimentarius Summarized in 7 Points

HealthFreedomUSA.org, the website of the Natural Solutions Foundation, is beholden to no one: our only interest is health freedom. Rima E. Laibow, MD, successful natural medicine physician since the 1970s, has studied 16,000 pages of Codex documentation. Her conclusion is that people who say that Codex is “consumer protection”, “voluntary”, or “harmless” are, at best, seriously mistaken.

1) Started in 1962 by UN, Imposed by WTO Sanctions

Codex Alimentarius was created in 1962 as a trade Commission by the UN to control the international trade of food. Its initial intentions may have been altruistic but it has been taken over by corporate interests, most notably the pharmaceutical, pesticide, biotechnology and chemical industries.

Codex Alimentarius is backed up by the crippling trade sanctions of the World Trade Organization (WTO). Any non Codex-compliant nation would face huge economic punishment since they would automatically lose in any food-trade dispute with a Codex compliant country.

2) “Nutrients are Toxins” Is Junk Science

Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) has two committees which impact nutrition.

One of them, the “Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses” (CCNFSDU), is chaired by Dr. Rolf Grossklaus, a physician who believes that nutrition has no role in health. This is the “top-guy” for Codex nutritional policy, and he has stated that “nutrition is not relevant to health”.

As unbelievable as it may sound, Dr. Grossklaus actually declared nutrients to be toxins in 1994 and instituted the use of toxicology (Risk Assessment) to prevent nutrients from having any impact on humans who take supplements! It is worth mentioning that Dr. Grossklaus happens to own the Risk Assessment company advising CCNFSDU and Codex on this issue. This company makes money when its toxicology services are used for the “assessment” of nutrients. Here in the U.S. we call that a “conflict of interest”.

Codex is made up of thousands of standards and guidelines. One of them, the Vitamin and Mineral Guideline (VMG), is designed to permit only ultra low doses of vitamins and minerals (and make clinically effective nutrients illegal). How can the VMG restrict dosages of vitamins and minerals? By using Risk Assessment (toxicology) to assess nutrients.

While Risk Assessment is a legitimate science (it is a branch of toxicology), it is the wrong science for assessing nutrients! In fact, in this context, it is actually junk science. Biochemistry, the science of life processes, is the correct science for assessing nutrients. Codex Alimentarius treats nutrients as toxins, which is literally insane.

Nutrients are not toxins - they are essential for life.

No matter what Codex Alimentarius officials say to convince you that Risk Assessment is a “science-based” approach to nutrients, it is not.

And it is worth repeating that Dr. Grossklaus, the head of Codex Alimentarius, owns the Risk Assessment company advising CCNFSDU and Codex on the “benefit” of using Risk Assessment to assess nutrients.

3) Not Consumer Protection - That’s Propaganda

Contrary to the propaganda, Codex Alimentarius has nothing to do with consumer protection. Nothing! Codex is about the economic ambitions of multi-national corporations, in particular, the pharmaceutical industry.

Using their multi billion-dollar marketing budgets, these industries have launched a massive media propaganda campaign to paint Codex Alimentarius as a benevolent tool of “consumer protection”, as well as to negatively taint the image of natural health options and mislead people to fear them as “dangerous”, so they will take drugs (which really are dangerous). Natural health products and options have an amazing safety record and are remarkably effective, especially when compared to pharmaceutical drugs.

Unfortunately, one-time defenders of health freedom such as National Nutritional Foods Association (NNFA) and Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) have joined the propaganda bandwagon and are spreading false information saying that Codex Alimentarius is either “harmless” or benevolent “consumer protection”. Neither is true.

The membership of these one-time defenders of health freedom has become permeated by people from the pharmaceutical industry (for example, CRN counts as its members corporations such as Monsanto® and Bayer®).

4) Codex: Serious Threat to Health and Health Freedom

If Codex Alimentarius is implemented in the United States of America, therapeutic dosages of vitamins and minerals (and all other nutrients soon to follow) will become unavailable because they will literally become illegal.

Here’s how it would work, in a nut-shell:

Due to the junk science use of Risk Assessment (toxicology) to assess supposedly toxic nutrients, a false belief is being engineered saying that “nutritional supplements are dangerous to people’s health”.

Using this false belief generates calls to “protect” people from these “toxic” nutrients. After the calls come the bills to set ultra low permissible dosages (remember, nutrients are deemed “dangerous toxins” under this false belief). If enough of us and our Congressional delegates buy this nonsense, we and Congress would blindly comply with Codex Alimentarius’ VMG. And blind compliance is what the industries behind Codex Alimentarius intend.

Blind compliance goes hand-in-hand with lack of activism. This lack of activism allows our protective laws, classifying nutrients as foods with no upper limits (such as DSHEA), to be easily repealed and replaced with draconian laws to classify nutrients as toxins. And “harmonization” with the pro-illness, pro-pharmaceutical industry Vitamin and Mineral Guideline is there to fill the void.

Only intentionally ineffective, ultra low dose supplements would be legal, with or without a prescription, on the VMG list. If enough people do not take action, we can expect to watch nutritional supplement manufacturers and, thus health food stores, to go out of business, in a domino effect. The only player left standing would be Big Pharma.

Therapeutic grade vitamins, minerals, and amino acids would be eliminated from the marketplace (although a few low-dose supplements would be allowed by Codex, as a symbolic measure to avoid suspicion about their ulterior motive).

Natural health professionals would lose the tools of their trade (nutritional supplements) and health conscious people would be unable to choose natural health options for health promotion and disease treatment.

And that is, in a nutshell, how Codex Alimentarius is poised to make Natural and Nutritional Medicine (NNM) disappear from the legal health world and go underground. Who benefits? Big Pharma.

It would take a few years for the above scenarios to be feasible (Codex Alimentarius is meant to go into full global effect by 2010). The slower the process takes, the less alarmed people will be. That’s probably the logic of the architects of Codex Alimentarius.

5) Serves Economic Interests of Sickness Industries Through WTO and Napoleonic Code

More and more people are turning to natural health products globally. The “wellness” trend is a major trend in today’s society. The more natural health products people use, the fewer drugs they buy. The pharmaceutical industry, which is part of the “Sickness Industry”, fears the inevitable shift toward natural health care.

Instead of accepting the will of the people and rethinking the future of the pharmaceutical industry, the industry has decided upon an unethical course of action: the use of deception and deceit to eliminate natural health products completely.

Codex Alimentarius is a shrewd vehicle for protecting the pharmaceutical industry from the loss of income it stands to suffer due to the inevitable growth of natural healthcare.

Codex Alimentarius is the resistance of the dinosaurs to inevitability: the burgeoning desire of humanity for a healthier, saner, and more sustainable way of life.

The World Trade Organization (WTO) intends to force Codex Alimentarius upon the nations of the world, including the U.S. This would be done under the threat of massive economic sanctions if WTO-countries do not comply with Codex Alimentarius.

Furthermore, Codex is based in the Napoleonic Code, not Common Law. That means that under Codex Alimentarius, anything not explicitly permitted is forbidden. Under Common Law, we hold that anything not explicitly forbidden is permitted. The difference is the difference between health freedom and health tyranny. Codex Alimentarius would be able to ban supplements by default.

6) DSHEA Protects America From Codex Alimentarius

The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA, 1994), an American law classifying our supplements and herbs as foods (which can have no upper limit set on their use), was passed by unanimous Congressional consent following massive grass-roots support organized by health food stores. Millions of American activists told Congress, in no uncertain terms:

“Protect nutritional supplements as foods or we will remove you from office”.

Congress listened and carried out the will of the people.

DSHEA appropriately classifies nutritional supplements as foods which can have no upper limits set on their use. DSHEA recognizes that people use nutrients safely to deal with their individually differing needs for nutrients. The concept of biochemical individuality means that people have different needs for nutrients at different times. Are nutrients toxins? No, they are not toxins. They are substances essential to prevent, treat and cure any chronic condition, in differing doses at different times in different people.

DSHEA protects the US from Codex Alimentarius’ deadly Vitamin and Mineral Guideline. We must reach our Congressional members, educate them about the facts on Codex Alimentarius and direct them to vote against anything that would threaten DSHEA.

Congress holds the keys to our health freedom. And it is their job to listen to us. Let’s not allow cynicism to tell us otherwise. We did it for DSHEA in 1994. We can do it again this year.

7) Your Action is Needed Now!

DSHEA is under significant legislative attack right now. Your letter-writing is crucial: if the members of Congress know that voting against health freedom means losing their jobs come election time, they will listen. Our job is to make sure they get the message loud and clear. Take action via our 3 easy steps and send personalized emails to Congress right now.

After taking action on HealthFreedomUSA.org, consider getting together with others in your area and visit your Congressional members in their home offices. If we wait, we lose our health freedoms. Once we “HARMonize” with Codex, by the way, we no longer have the right, while we belong to the WTO, to repeal or change that “HARMonization”!

Conclusion

The objective of the pro-Codex Alimentarius multi nationals is to “boil the frog slowly” so that we do not wake up to it in time to avoid Codex.

Once we have “HARMonize” to Codex Alimentarius, as long as we are in the WTO, we cannot amend or change what we’ve been “HARMonize” to.

Codex Alimentarius will go into global implementation by December 31, 2009, unless We, the People, avert it. We must act now because right now, with $758 Million spent on declared Congressional lobbying by Big Pharma last year, there are members of Congress who are trying to overturn DSHEA and allow Pharma-friendly free reign for Codex. If protective laws like DSHEA are destroyed, the sanctioning power of the autocratic WTO kicks in, and it will be impossible to get out from under Codex Alimentarius. We can protect our access to high potency nutrients and stave off an adulterated food supply only by putting pressure on Congress.

Open Letter on CODEX (May 23, 2005)

By Rima E. Laibow, M.D., Medical Director of the Natural Solutions Foundation

Dear Reader,

Each of us is deluged daily with so much information that we are forced to choose quickly between what deserves our attention and what to throw in the circular file. This is a long letter with a great deal of detail in it. I implore you to read it because your health freedom and your health, depend on what this letter is about to tell you!

No doubt you have received as many rambling, lengthy, semi-incoherent emails about CODEX ALIMENTARIUS as I have. I have deleted more of them than I can count that were either too alarming or too complacent in nature and simply lacked credibility. Now, let me ask you if you know anyone who has actually read more than 16,000 pages of the working documents of the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Commission?

Well, I have.

As such, allow me to attempt to put an end to any confusion you may have about CODEX ALIMENTARIUS by sharing what I have learned and what I believe to be a reasonable and appropriate level of concern.

What’s the bottom line for a healthcare professional practicing alternative, nutritional, natural, or environmental healthcare? The World Trade Organization (WTO) (and the agreements we signed as part of our membership) stands poised to take away your right to chose health options guided by common sense, science and your personal preferences and choices!

Through the Orwellian process of “HARMonization” (forced alignment) with WTO standards regulating international trade, distribution, and processing of food, herbs, and nutrients, your personal health rights and options would be eliminated within the next few years. Your rights to use whatever type of medicine you choose, whether natural or pharmaceutical, would be eliminated! The proposed standards are extremely detrimental to the environment, your health freedom, your health and your access to clean and unadulterated food.

Okay. I saw that one eyebrow go up and heard that deep sigh. Let me tell you that alarmism is not, and never has been, in my nature. I am a medical doctor, have a wide variety of interests, am passionate about healthcare freedom, and pride myself in my rational thinking and logic skills. I floss my teeth regularly and eat a nutrient-dense whole foods diet and, yes, occasionally sample the more decadent side of the culinary arts. Neither my family nor I had a bomb shelter during the Cold War era and I did not withdraw from society or stock up on gasoline, food, or batteries in anticipation of Y2K. Read on.

CODEX is based neither on science nor democracy. Unelected bureaucrats, operating at the behest of industry and trade interests, not public health, make decisions which become domestic and international standards when enacted as law by the member states of the WTO. These standards represent the ultimate triumph of greed over good science, good sense, good health and good intent. Carolyn Dean, M.D., points out that in 1995, when the WTO was created, the original purpose of CODEX (to provide clean food for the planet with no international barriers to the movement of that food) was replaced by industry interests [1]. The deadly results are clear in what you are about to read.

Your rights to chose natural health options such as therapeutically effective dietary supplements, unadulterated foods with minimal pesticide and toxic residues and other natural treatments are about to be converted into crimes in the United States by a draconian set of international regulations. These regulations, called CODEX ALIMENTARIUS, have already been translated into law (via the European Food Supplements Directive) in the European Union (EU). Through “HARMonization” with CODEX via the Trans-Tasman Agreement, Australia and New Zealand have been “HARMonized” with CODEX and Canada has achieved the same status indirectly by “HARMonizing” with the Trans-Tasman Agreement [2] [3] [4] [5] rather than with CODEX itself. The net result, however, is the same HARM through “HARMonization” with CODEX.

The CODEX ALIMENTARIUS standards, (from the Latin for “Food Rules”) are being promulgated by the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Commission [established as a Trade Commission in 1963 by the United Nations (UN)] concerning every area having to do with the production, processing, packaging and use of food, herbs, supplements and food components.

Think it can’t happen here?

Think again. There is a world-wide push for “HARMonization” to eliminate clean food, nutritional supplements, therapeutic vitamins and other natural health choices [6]. It can and it will, unless we, the people of the United States take appropriate action and activate each member in our personal and professional networks. Skillful disinformation would have you believe that CODEX ALIMENTARIUS (hereafter referred to as CODEX) is a hoax and that, at the same time, it is beneficial for you and your patients. The inherent illogic of this position is obvious to the discerning reader [7] [8] [9] [10].

We hardly need to be protected from safe and effective natural healing tools. Instead, pharmaceuticals, the third largest killer in America WHEN PROPERLY USED [11], would be our only options. CODEX ALIMENTARIUS is the triumph of pharmaceutical greed: when our food has been poisoned and we and our children are dying in huge numbers of the diseases of toxicity and undernutrition, will pharmaceutical medicine help then?

Natural medicine remains the best prevention, treatment and cure for chronic disease. CODEX eliminates that option.

The CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Commission was empowered to work with other UN-linked organizations in order to develop and promulgate uniform world-wide standards for food, nutrition and agriculture. The WTO, successor to the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), is empowered to enforce global compliance with all CODEX standards via trade sanctions across the entire economic spectrum. Member nations (read “the United States”) agreed, upon signing the WTO treaty, to always allow the standards and regulations of the WTO to supersede (take precedence over) national standards, laws, and regulations.

Despite what you may hear to the contrary, because of the Sanitary and Phytosanitary Agreement (SPSA) [12] , once accepted, CODEX guidelines and regulations take on the force of law in each member nation of the WTO - and that includes the U.S. and cannot be repealed or changed by the WTO member nations. This means that once the U.S. is “HARMonized” [13] with CODEX, despite what you are being told, the Dietary Supplements Health Education Act (DSHEA), 1994, no longer governs the U.S. position on nutrients: CODEX does!

Presenting itself as a consumer protection strategy, CODEX policies masquerade as benign and beneficial while, in reality, they are neither. Given the medically and environmentally horrific stipulations and requirements of CODEX, the implementation of these “standards” would result in incalculable harm to the healing arts and to the patients who depend on them.

Once CODEX is adopted by a nation via “HARMonization” (forced acceptance) or through the effects of the SPSA, there is a “phase-in period” during which the administrative structure of implementation is established according to a strict time-table. Bear in mind that in the United States, nutrients are currently classified as foods and so have no upper limits [under the 1994 Dietary Supplements Health and Education Act (DSHEA)] and that any substance not explicitly forbidden is permitted as a nutrient in the United States. Under CODEX, any substance and any dosage not explicitly permitted by CODEX policy is banned as a nutrient. The difference is of major importance to Health Freedom. DHSEA is good for health freedom. CODEX is bad (very bad) for health freedom.

CODEX eliminates the possibility that supplements and nutrients may be used to prevent, treat or cure any disorder [14]. In fact, the EU observer of the CODEX Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CNFSDU) stated in the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Commission meeting, 2003, that “food and the prevention of diseases do not go together.” He was supported by the Chairman of CNFSDU, who said that drugs are to mitigate and prevent diseases, and that the role of food supplements is to support the diet [15].

Yet, more than 80 percent of Americans use supplements specifically to prevent, treat and cure diseases and conditions. Nutritional and environmental physicians, naturopaths, nutritionists, chiropractors and other licensed health professionals employ hundreds of natural minerals, supplements, and herbs precisely because they are effective in preventing, treating and curing many diseases and chronic, degenerative conditions.

Consumers make choices in natural health to the tune of $20 Billion per year in the United States for supplements alone. Do we really want a democratically unaccountable trade organization to tell us that we cannot make those choices any longer?Dr. Wong Ang Peng, who was present at the November, 2003 CODEX Committee on Nutrition and Food for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU), wrote:

“We, the people of the world have entrusted WHO, FAO, and CODEX ALIMENTARIUS to regulate on health measures, to protect our health. If only the people knew…. CODEX is not about health, it is about wealth. CODEX is not for public interest, it is for industrial interest. It was super sold out. It was super hypocrisy.” [16] [emphasis added].

Natural health options, starting with therapeutically effective vitamins, minerals and nutrients would become illegal in the U.S.:

1. If the United States is “HARMonized” with CODEX ALIMENTARIUS this spring/summer while compliance with CODEX is still “voluntary,” or

2. When compliance with CODEX becomes mandatory if the Vitamin and Mineral Standard is ratified as expected at the next CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Commission meeting, Rome, July 4-9, 2005. Other nutrients would quickly follow into oblivion according to the stated intentions of the EU delegate and CNFSDU chairman at that same meeting [17].

If the European Food Supplements Directive (EFSD) is any guide (and it has been described by the Chairman of the Committee on Nutrients and Food for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU), Rolf Grossklaus, M.D., as “the future face of CODEX”), nutrients, inappropriately classified as toxic chemicals, are permitted only at dosages

1. No higher than that found in food and
2. So low as to have no biological effect on even the most sensitive human being.

That is the consequence of using “risk assessment” science, designed for toxic substances, to determine nutrient levels. Nutrients are non-toxic, are foods and thus have no safe upper limits, unlike dangerous industrial and natural chemicals and substances [18].

Health food stores would no longer be able to market and distribute nutritional supplements at therapeutic doses. Most health food stores and privately owned nutrient manufacturers would, I believe, no longer be in business if CODEX takes effect.

I know. This is all difficult to believe upon first hearing. You may have heard that it is easy to get people to believe a lie, particularly an outrageous lie. In my experience, the opposite is also true: It is even more difficult to get people to believe an absolutely insane and outrageous truth. Keep on reading, because this is a truth you definitely need to understand.

Once CODEX is implemented (either through “HARMonization” or mandatory compliance), we would be forced to follow something very close to the European implementation model of CODEX under which it would be illegal to manufacture, buy, sell, recommend, or use any but the EFSD’s 28 ultra-low dose nutrients (including Fluoride, a systemic poison, by the way!) whether you are a licensed health professional or not [19]. Natural supplements at therapeutic doses, herbs, enzymes and other non-pharmaceutical treatments would be banned. The only legal health options left would be the pharmaceutical one (of course, surgery and radiation would still be available, too).

CODEX regulations have been “HARMonized” (i.e., approved) and/or are scheduled for implementation in the EU, Canada, New Zealand and Australia as well as the entire Asian Pacific Region (via the Trans-Tasman Agreement explained above). The United States is next unless we act decisively! Remember, although CODEX regulations are passed quietly and without effective public notice through infrequent meetings abroad that are invisible to most Americans, they would have grave and devastating impact on America’s health freedom.

Here in the United States, the “HARMonization” laws which would enact CODEX policy have been defeated by Congress several times, each time by a smaller margin [20]. Given the composition of the current Congress, it is virtually certain that “HARMonization” legislation would be passed when introduced unless we take swift and immediate steps to assure that does not happen. Through this web site, we have made it easy for you to take action in 6 steps!

This legislative “stealth attack” on health freedoms will probably play out in May or early June of 2005 unless we assure that Health Freedom becomes the “Mother of All Third Rails” for every politician in the country. Here’s how a third rail works: touch it and so much energy runs through your body that you are instantly dead. For a politician, that means instantly un-re-electable!

It is vitally important when thinking about CODEX to remember that CODEX is not a democratic process and we, the people, have neither voice nor vote in the matter. Run by unelected bureaucrats, primarily from the FDA here in the U.S., CODEX is the result of a complex relationship between the UN (which established the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Commission in 1963); the WTO (which is authorized to enforce CODEX through trade sanctions); the World Health Organization (WHO),which subscribes to the CODEX regulations [despite the fact that they directly and explicitly conflict with their own findings and policies such as the FAO/WHO official publication, "Diet, Nutrition and the Prevention of Chronic Diseases"]; the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA); and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) working in concert with industry representatives of (and others unofficially representing the interests of) the pesticide, chemical, pharmaceutical, and dairy industries. All of this is carried into domestic law by the nearly unknown Sanitary and Phytosanitary Agreement (SPSA) [21].

Consumers, health scientists, physicians practicing natural medicine and other health-focused voices have been absent from official CODEX deliberations. Representatives of the newly “pharmaceuticalized” natural health industry (e.g., IADSA, NNFA, CRN) have attended but their position supports the adoption of CODEX standards because it would open new international markets for them and increase their profits by allowing them to sell clinically ineffective mini-dose nutrients at exorbitant prices. A few observers with interest in the natural health arena have been present at official deliberations but they have not been permitted to speak in the sessions. A very small number of International Non Governmental Organizations with health freedom interests have been permitted to attend and may speak but they may not vote.

Full ratification of the desperately wrongheaded CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Vitamin and Mineral Standards is expected in Rome during the July 4-9, 2005 meeting of the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Committee.

Of course, the real work of such a complex regulatory structure takes place outside of those official sessions. And natural health advocates do not have access to those meetings, agreements and sessions. Yet CODEX would take away our health freedoms if we allow ourselves to be “HARMonized” or mandated to comply with it.

Everyone knows if they have a jar of pickles and they remove the pickle label and put a mayonnaise label on it, that they’re going to find pickles when they open the jar. The packaging of CODEX policy under the label of protection of fair trade, public health, and safety does not make it so. Underneath CODEX’s altruistic labeling is a poisoned apple of extremely adverse global policy that is, in fact, driven by economic concerns of large corporate interests.

CODEX ALIMENTARIUS is far more than a mindless restriction on nutrients, however. Once implemented, CODEX ALIMENTARIUS would do the following:

1). VITAMINS, MINERAL, NUTRIENTS AND PHYSIOLOGICALLY ACTIVE SUBSTANCES

1. CODEX prohibits the use of nutrients to “prevent, treat or cure any condition or disease”.

2. CODEX defines minimum allowable dosages of permitted nutrients as 15 percent of the amount naturally occurring in foods, while maximum allowable doses of any permitted nutrients may not exceed the dose of that nutrient found in food! Permitted nutritional supplement values subtract the amount assumed to be in the average expectable daily diet [22] from the maximum allowable dose and the result is the permitted upper limit of a nutrient. No dosage of this nutrient may be used which is any higher than the permitted upper limit with or without a prescription. This system is based neither in science nor sense.

3. Higher doses of permitted nutrients and other nutrients not explicitly permitted would be classified as illegal substances (like heroin) and, as such, would be legally unavailable under any circumstances. The system for testing additional nutrients or higher nutrient doses exist but is a total sham:

1. Theoretical exceptions exist for natural substances which are submitted and accepted for testing by July 12, 2005 at a cost of approximately $250,000 per submission.

2. If accepted, a substance may undergo Phase 1, 2 and 3 testing as a drug.

3. If, after testing, the substance is found to be efficacious and safe, it may be marketed as a prescription drug.

4. Permission to market as a drug expires on December 31, 2004 and cannot be renewed or extended.

5. A substance successfully tested in this way may then be prescribed at the tested dosage only and for the tested conditions only.

6. The cost of this procedure is staggering, most applications for such testing have been turned down and, since natural molecules cannot be patented, potential manufacturers are unable to recoup the outrageous costs of testing through later sales.

# The European Union (EU), whose Directives (e.g., EFSD and the ETHMPD) are the model administrative agencies for CODEX implementation, permits a total of 28 ultra-low dose nutrients as of August 1, 2005. Nutrients like Boron, Vanadium, and Natural (Mixed Tocopherol) Vitamin E, for example, are banned under the EFSD. CODEX is expected to follow suit this July through ratification.All other nutrients (e.g., alpha lipoic acid, glutathione, picnoginol, 7-Keto DHEA, 1 gram doses of vitamin C, Co Q 10, fish oil, and curcumin, etc.), while not explicitly covered by the July guideline, are anticipated to become banned substances as the anti-therapeutic nutrients stance of CODEX is made final in the coming 5 years before full implementation of CODEX ALIMENTARIUS on January 1, 2010. The CCNFSDU has made it clear that other nutrients, would be excluded under the positive list/negative list concept under which:

1. everything not permitted on the positive list is forbidden and

2. everything forbidden on the negative list is forbidden by virtue of being absent from the positive list.

According to Paul Anthony Taylor, present at the Bonn 2004 CCNFSDU meeting,

“During the discussions on Scope, the Chairman inferred that the EU wanted to leave the door open for the Draft Guidelines on Vitamins and Minerals to be extended to other nutrients. The EC Observer replied by saying that they did not want this, but that if the Scope was defined too rigidly some products might be taken out of the Guidelines by the addition of other nutrients, thus claiming that they were not vitamin and mineral supplements. As a result of this, the Committee added the following sentence to the Guidelines: Food Supplements containing vitamins and/or minerals as well as other ingredients should also be in conformity with the specific rules on vitamins and minerals laid down in these Guidelines. [emphasis added]” [23]

These forbidden substances, essential and vital nutrients in therapeutic dosages, would be legally forbidden and, as such, may not be manufactured, distributed, recommended, sold, supplied or be in the possession of anyone, including licensed health professionals. Vitamin C, for example, at any dosage higher than 200 mg per day would be illegal. A gram of Vitamin C would be an illegal substance under CODEX! The dose of Co Q 10 which has been shown to resolve breast cancer in some patients (400 mg per day) [24] would be illegal because, if CODEX proceeds as its Nutritional Supplements Committee Chairman, Dr. Grossklaus has indicted it would, “nutrition has no place in medicine” and nutrients, therefore, also have no place in medicine according to Grossklaus. Think about it.

# The allowable maximum upper limits for permitted nutrients have intentionally been set so low that they have little or no clinical impact on any human being, no matter how sensitive to the nutrient! This is the “gift” of “Risk Assessment Science” to nutritional medicine. By the way, the only company permitted to submit risk assessment data to CODEX, the BfR, is owned by Dr. Rolf Grossklaus, the chairman of CCNFSDU! So according to CODEX, nutrients have no role in keeping us healthy and none at all in returning us to a state of health if we are ill. Those ultra low dose nutrients which are available should CODEX be implemented will be exorbitantly priced, as current experience in Norway and Germany reveals, where profit margins of synthetic, permitted nutrients are being “HARMonized” to match drug profit margins.

1. On August 1, 2005, 75 percent of the natural substances currently available in health food stores and pharmacies in Europe are set to become illegal as a direct result of CODEX via the EFSD.

2. A non-binding opinion of the Judge Advocate General of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) rendered on April 5, 2005, required the EFSD to use more science to create its standards. The rest of CODEX implementation, however, was not challenged. This opinion has no legal weight and the ECJ is expected to render its final ruling in June, 2005. If the EFSD is upheld, the August 1 ban will go forward [25]. If it is not, it will be revised and then go forward.

3. Even if the EFSD guidelines are overturned, member nations of the WTO (that means the U.S.) are bound by the SPSA to bring their standards into conformity with CODEX guidelines and standards.

# Although CODEX’s current Vitamin and Mineral Standard (not yet ratified) states that natural and synthetic forms may be used, under the EFSD, only synthetic forms of permitted nutrients would be available. Under the EFSD, natural versions would become illegal substances. Only synthetic nutrients (at ultra-low dosages) manufactured by pharmaceutical companies would meet the CODEX-determined molecular standards for use in humans or animals. As he repeatedly states, Dr. Grossklaus maintains that the EFDS is the future face of CODEX ALIMENTARIUS.

# While the problem here in the United States is acute, it is a problem of crisis proportions in the underdeveloped world. According to the UNESCO Report, Vitamin and Mineral Deficiencies: A Global Progress Report,

“Few outside specialist circles are aware of the scale and severity of vitamin and mineral deficiency, or of what it means for individuals and for nations. It means the impairment of hundreds of millions of growing minds and the lowering of national IQs. It means wholesale damage to immune systems, and the deaths of more than a million children a year. It means 250,000 serious birth defects annually and the deaths of approximately 50,000 young women a year during pregnancy and childbirth.

And it means the large-scale loss of national energies, intellects, productivity, and growth.

This problem was largely controlled decades ago in the industrialized [sic] nations. It could now be controlled world-wide by means that are tried and tested, available and affordable. That is why the World Bank says that “The control of vitamin and mineral deficiencies is one of the most extraordinary development-related scientific advances of recent years. Probably no other technology available today offers as large an opportunity to improve lives and accelerate development at such low cost and in such a short time”. [26]

2). HERBS AND HERBAL TREATMENTS

1. According to a British report on Celebrity opposition to the EU herbal ban,

“The Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive [THMPD], due to come into law no earlier than 2003/4, states a product can only continue to be sold if it has already been on the market for 30 years, including 15 in Europe. Some 300 nutrients and nutrient sources already on sale in the UK are not on the permitted list and, unless comprehensive safety dossiers are approved or the remedies are licensed in the same way as pharmaceutical drugs, would be banned. Products affected include Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Echinacea, Black Cohosh, St John’s Wort, Multi- Vitamins and Minerals.” [27]

2. Herbs, originally part of the CODEX deliberations, were summarily removed and placed under a closed committee of the WHO where they are anticipated to be classified as untested drugs and then classified as illegal substances. Once this recommendation is made to the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Commission, probably just before global implementation of CODEX on January 1, 2010, it is anticipated that it would be followed according to the legal analysis of experts in this matter.

3. The European THMPD, part of the European model implementation system for CODEX, has produced a very short list of herbs which may be used and the conditions for which they may be used (another short and very trivial list) while any condition which might require “medical”, (i.e., pharmaceutical) care may not be treated with herbs. [28] [29]

4. All other applications of herbs and any other herbs besides those permitted are strictly forbidden since they and their indications are not on the “positive list”.

5. There is the possibility that a few formulas of well known Chinese or other traditional herbal medicines may be exempt (but that remains to be seen).

3). TRADITIONAL HEALING ARTS

1. Ayurveda, Tibetan, tribal and other traditional medicines which use herbs and natural substances would be forbidden world-wide since efficacy and scientific documentation is hard to come by in these healing arts. Since most people do not have access to pharmaceutical medicine, this effectively removes the legal possibility of people accessing any form of tribal or traditional medicine without committing a crime against the country in which they live.

2. The ETHMPD actively discriminates against herbal medicine. According to Sepp Hasslberger,

“While the directive was necessary to “salvage” a large number of registered natural medicines that existed on the German market, and which had to be terminated by the end of this year because they could not fulfill the criteria for full medicines registration, it does discriminate against herbal medicines from other traditions, such as Chinese Traditional Medicine and Ayurvedic [sic] medicinal herbs, by requiring traditional use in Europe as a pre-condition to registration. Such non-EU traditional herbal medicines could in theory obtain a full medicine registration, but in practice there are unsurmountable [sic] barriers in the full medicine registration requirements, which are clearly slanted to favour [sic] the patentable chemical remedies of pharmaceutical manufacture. By excluding other herbal traditions, the European herbal medicines directive seems to be at odds with an initiative of the World Health Organisation [sic] which has recently issued guidelines for the safe use of traditional, complementary and alternative medicines including herbals, which the UN body wishes to be widely available in all countries as an alternative to pharmaceutical medicines.” [30]

3. South Africa and India have repeatedly expressed their dissatisfaction with “foods as drugs” and the restriction of nutrients and herbs but have been regularly overrun by “consensus” tactics which do not allow full discussion or debate on these crucial issues [31].

4). GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS (GMOs)

1. CODEX makes the un-labeled use of GMOs legal globally, even though there is significant science-based opposition to the widespread use of GMOs because of their untested impact on human health. Although there are standards for testing of GMOs incorporated into CODEX.

2. The CODEX Committee on Nutrients and Foods for Special Dietary Uses allows GMOs in baby foods and formulas. Dr. Wong Ang Peng, wrote of the 2004 Bonn CCNFSDU meeting, which he attended,

“Sadly too, the proposal of EU to allow GMO (genetically modified organism) ingredients in infant formulas did not get much opposition, except from a public interest NGO. GMO ingredients, the domains of multinational corporations from the developed countries, would from now be openly allowed into baby food. Let it be on record that the delegates of this 25th Session of CODEX Committee proposed and approved these patented, DNA mutating junk ingredients.” [32]

3. GMO organisms are far from safe. Many GMOs have been genetically engineered so that seeds WOULD NOT GERMINATE without the use of specific pesticides [33] (such as Roundup� by Monsanto�). In fact, mounting scientific evidence makes it clear that the incidence of cancer, ALS, Parkinson’s Disease, birth defects, chemical sensitivity, chronic fatigue syndrome, asthma, severe allergies, and a host of other serious, previously rare, increasingly common and deadly conditions have a causative or contributory relationship with increasing levels of pesticide exposure that these crops require. GMOs themselves are far from scientifically established as safe for either the planet or its people by objective, non-industry scientists. In addition to the human health dangers of GMOs, genetic drift and contamination through the spread of GMO genetic material is recognized as a major threat to the biological integrity of the entire planet.

4. GMOs may be freely used in animal feed without being labeled.

5). TOXIC RESIDUES

1. CODEX sets permissible upper limits for pesticide and veterinary drug residues, toxic chemicals, hormones in food and other environmental contaminants many times higher than levels advocated by even chemical and pesticide industry lobbying groups [34] [35].

For example, aflatoxin, the second most potent non-ionizing carcinogen known, is permitted by CODEX at frighteningly high levels in milk, consumed in large quantities by children. The WHO conceded in a press release that these levels were very high, stating, “The CODEX Commission also set maximum levels of aflatoxin in milk and milk products. Aflatoxin is a carcinogenic substance that can be transmitted from animal feed (for examples, peanuts and corn) into milk. The new maximum limit for aflatoxin in milk is 0.5 micrograms per kilogram. Some countries argued for a stricter aflatoxin limit of 0.05 micrograms per kilogram. However the majority of countries agreed that the higher limit was more feasible, particularly in developing countries.” [36]

2. Current “acceptable” levels of toxins are already responsible for most of the incidence of cancers, heart disease, autism, chronic degenerative conditions, and organ failures associated with mortality and morbidity globally. Cancer, once a rare occurrence, is anticipated to strike 50% of the earth’s inhabitants by 2010 under current permissible levels of pesticides and other toxins! When CODEX institutes its much higher “Safe Upper Limits” for these substances, the impact on the collective immune system and fertility rates of the planet are beyond imagining. Increasing the permissible levels of toxins can only accelerate personal and global suffering and death [37].

6). ANTIBIOTICS, DRUGS, GROWTH STIMULANTS AND OTHER HORMONES IN FOOD ANIMALS

1. CODEX mandates that all conventionally farmed livestock be treated with antibiotics, veterinary drugs, hormones and growth stimulants

2. Vague, imprecise and unenforceable CODEX “guidelines” exist to “prevent irresponsible use of veterinary drugs ” [38]. These loose guide lines are in sharp contrast to the minutely controlled and detailed prohibition of nutritional standards, with a sharply defined positive list and a broad explicit and implicit negative list, which effectively prohibits all therapeutic dosages of all nutrients. Clearly, veterinary drugs are allowed without limit or penalty if they are overused, no matter how harmful they are to both livestock and humans while nutrients at any significant dose are forbidden, no matter how safe and essential.

3. Organic, free range and biodynamic farming, while technically permitted, is defined so loosely that antibiotics, toxins like Rotenone, fish and dairy products for livestock feed and veterinary drugs (including antimicrobials) may be used at the discretion of the certifying agent or farmer. Drought, hardship, severe conditions or “other” situations can all cause the definition of “organic” to be stretched beyond reason and safety. There are no penalties for violation of “organic” farming principles for either crops or animals.

4. Even the most positive gloss on the organic standards makes it clear that the CODEX standard is appalling loose:

“The CODEX meeting also agreed to new guidelines for organic livestock production. According to these guidelines, organic livestock farming should aim [emphasis added] to use natural breeding methods, minimize stress in animals, prevent disease, and progressively eliminate the use of certain chemical veterinary drugs, including antibiotics [emphasis added]. Animals should mainly be fed with high quality organic feed [emphasis added], not meat and bone meal, although fish and milk products are acceptable. The use of growth hormones is not permitted.” [39] [40]

5. The most casual examination of the standards and definitions of “organic food” (meaning as little as 70% organic contents without informative labeling to that effect), the chemical standards for animal feed and treatment, the short “conversion times” to move animals, fields and crops from conventional to “organic” and the permitted use of chemicals and toxins in the production of crops and animals makes it clear that this standard is nothing more than window dressing for a toxic food supply [41].

7). IRRADIATION OF FOOD

1. In the summer of 2003,

“CODEX weakened the international food irradiation rule to allow any food to be irradiated at any dose, regardless of how high. The new Standard contains no maximum radiation dose to which foods can be treated. The previous limit was 10 kilo Gray, a dose of radiation equivalent to 330 million chest X-rays. At such doses, the chemical composition of foods can be altered; vitamins, proteins and other nutrients can be destroyed; and flavor, odor and texture can be corrupted. The decision was made over the objections of more than 10 countries, including Austria, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Mexico and Spain. Both the UN and the WHO are mandated to protect the health and welfare of the worlds [sic] population, but they obviously shirked on this responsibility when the decision was made.” [42]

Public Citizen goes on to say,

“in an October 2002 report by Public Citizen, Bad Taste: The Disturbing Truth About the World Health Organisations [sic] Endorsement of Food Irradiation, the WHO has relied on a very small number of faulty studies in declaring food irradiation safe; this unscientific and shoddy work is the foundation of acceptance of food irradiation across the world. The IAEA owes its loyalty to the nuclear industry and thus works with governments to apply nuclear technologies. It is impossible for the main advocate of nuclear technology to advise CODEX in a disinterested, scientific manner because of its vested interests in the speedy and complete adoption of food irradiation. CODEX has not relied on disciplined, dispassionate or scientific advice in setting standards for food irradiation. Instead, the decisions and regulations recommended by CODEX are used as a starting point for the facilitation of international trade. Both the Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS) of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) follow Codexs [sic] lead and encourage the international harmonization of food standards from a trade perspective [43].”

2. The irradiation of food produces huge free radical populations in that food. The higher the ionizing dose, the higher the free radical population. Under CODEX, food components may be irradiated and then, as they are combined with other components, they may be irradiated again. And again, and again! Each time, the free radical population is increased. The only protection against their pervasive damage is high doses of anti-oxidants like vitamin C, Beta Carotene, Glutathione, etc. (which would be illegal under CODEX, see discussion above).

At this point it will likely come as no surprise to you that there has been no effective representation from health advocates, nutritional supplement manufacturers, natural healthcare professionals, or other non-pharmaceutically oriented group at the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Commission meeting. The CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Commission meets every two years, always offshore (Rome, Bonn, Paris, etc.) and never in Smallville, U.S.A., a fact that helps perpetuate its opacity to the United States citizenry. The United States’ representatives to the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Commission have well-documented, unwholesome conflicts of interest with the very industries that stand to profit and benefit from the wholesale implementation of the CODEX standards.

CODEX sets international standards for everything from parmesan cheese to sweet cassava, canned sardines to chicken meat, Echinacea to rice. Each standard is ratified after reaching “Step 8″ in Committee. Final ratification of the Vitamin and Mineral Guideline is expected at the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Committee meeting in Rome from July 4-9, 2005.

Before ratification, “HARMonization” is “voluntary” but can be enforced by WTO trade sanctions. After ratification, compliance with CODEX is mandatory and enforcement by WTO trade sanctions is a powerful threat on its own to make sure that it is complied with properly. If that were not bad enough, the SPSA MANDATES domestic compliance with ratified standards. That means that the U.S. must bring its laws and standards down to those of CODEX and keep them there!

So the U.S. can kiss DSHEA goodbye if we fail to act now. Read on and I’ll tell you what we need to do to keep the U.S. CODEX-free!

It is imperative that concerned natural health consumers (and their patients, friends, relatives, suppliers, people who shop in health food stores and use clean food and therapeutic doses of nutritional supplements, etc.), become fully activated to stop CODEX from being enacted in the United States.

Now that we know more about the foundering boat in which we are adrift, let me hand you a paddle.

What You Can Do About CODEX!

Become active in the protection of America from CODEX through this web site! If you do nothing now and CODEX is ratified, you will have no environmental or nutritional medical choices. It is imperative that you alert your neighbors, colleagues, friends, patients, relatives, suppliers and everyone else you know to this danger so they can join you in taking effective action. Follow the link above for 6 Easy Steps to protecting America from CODEX.

This threat to our health and health freedom to choose the type of healthcare for our selves and our patients demands one of the most powerful tools available to us: grass-roots political action driven by the communication power of the Internet. CODEX is anything but democratic. We, the American people, however, can use the Democratic Process to our advantage by following the 6 Easy Steps to Protecting America from CODEX. These five steps are easily accessible on this web site, and allow you to do the following five things from the comfort of your computer chair:

1. Email your Congressional Delegation - We need hundreds of thousands of letters to reach Congress before the July 4, 2005 start of the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Commission meeting. Our web site features a tool that allows you to find your local Congress men and women, and email them directly. We even have a letter already drafted that you can use - all you have to do is add your name and address.

2. Sign the Declaration of Health Independence - this is a legal protest to CODEX that I have drafted and which all Americans are invited to add their names to. You send us your name and zip code and then we will print this digital signature on hemp paper and present the Declaration to Congress, in person. We are aiming for over 50,000 signatures!

3. Join our Citizen’s Petition - U.S. law prevents our government from “HARMonizing” with any International Standard which violates U.S. law. We are reminding the U.S. government to honor its own laws with our Citizen’s Petition, and you are welcome to add your name to the petition.

4. Spread the word - as part of step 3, you will be presented with a tool to email this web site to your friends. Through word-of-mouth marketing, we hope millions of Americans will find out about this web site and each in turn take action on the 6 steps.

5. Subscribe to the CODEX Action Alert - This is the email mailing list of the HealthFreedomUSA campaign. You will receive the latest information on CODEX through your free subscription. It is important that you subscribe so that if we need emergency mobilization (such as extra faxes), then we can call on you to help out.

6. Support Natural Solutions Foundation’s Mission to Reach Millions - National Solutions Foundation is a non-profit Nevada Corporation (of which I am the Medical Director) to preserve, protect and defend health freedom in the United States. NFA is behind the HealthFreedomUSA campaign to raise awareness about CODEX. Our public awareness campaign will cost about $500,000. Without public awareness, CODEX would become our domestic law! Donations help us raise the money needed to raise the public awareness needed. In addition to our Internet marketing activities, the Natural Solutions Foundation has commissioned a major documentary to tell the story of CODEX to the American public. Our only source of funding is voluntary donations by people like yourself.

Here is the golden link to the “6 Easy Steps to Protecting America from CODEX“:

6 Easy Steps to Protecting America from CODEX

It is critical that you and your family, friend and colleagues all take action on these steps. If enough Americans carry out the 6 steps, Congress will not dare allow CODEX to hit the United States of America.

We would all like to put our heads in the sand and try to believe that CODEX would, could and should not happen here. But it can and, unless we take action now, CODEX would become the law of our land.

Whether your motivation is global or local, professional or personal, I urge you to take action now!

With this web site and the “6 Easy Steps to Protecting America from CODEX”, we have made it easy for you. Join HealthFreedomUSA and let’s each do our part to keep CODEX out of America.

Yours in Health and Freedom,

Video - Codex & Nutricide - Codex Alimentarius - Not Good

Codex Alimentarius was created in 1962 as a trade Commission by the UN to control the international trade of food. Its initial intentions may have been altruistic but it has been taken over by corporate interests, most notably the pharmaceutical, pesticide, biotechnology and chemical industries.

Codex Alimentarius will go into global implementation by December 31, 2009, unless We, the People, avert it.

Codex Alimentarius Propaganda

How Codex Disinformation Works

There are many who claim that Codex Alimentarius is about “consumer protection”, or that it is “voluntary”, or that it is a downright “urban legend” or “hoax”. None of these claims comes anywhere near the truth. Dr. Laibow has analysed 16,000 pages of Codex Alimentarius documentation, and her analysis is that none of these claims are true.

Codex, once fully implemented, represents tremendous financial wealth for a few multinational corporations, most notably companies in the pharmaceutical industry.

These corporations have immense propaganda machines, already in place, hawking dangerous and sometimes deadly drugs, creating the illusion that nutrients are dangerous, the illusion that drugs are the only means to health, the illusion that genetically modified food are good for people, and the illusion that pesticides are safe.

Because Codex Alimentarius represents wealth to these corporations, they are using their skill and influence in the media to create an elegantly crafted, and totally false image of Codex Alimentarius as “consumer protection” so that the truth about Codex Alimentarius wont be known.

They can’t control the Internet however.
Keeping Codex-Reality at Bay

Why would anyone want to disseminate misleading information about Codex Alimentarius? Because the truth is unacceptable to people: Codex Alimentarius would eradicate natural health options from the global marketplace, and thus does not serve the health interests of the people. People would not take warmly to this. Those creating the propaganda behind Codex Alimentarius know this.

There are approximately 60 million people in America who care strongly about natural health. This group of the population are part of a market called LOHAS (”Lifestyle Of Health And Sustainability”). They care about such things as natural health, sustainability, fair trade, social justice, and personal development. If millions of people in the LOHAS community, who care about natural health, found out the truth about Codex, then Codex would face tremendous resistance.

We believe that the pharmaceutical industry, which is one of the industries behind Codex Alimentarius, fears the awakening of the LOHAS to the real Codex agenda. That’s why they are working so hard to deceive, mislead, and pacify.
The Three Flavors of Codex Disinformation

“Disinformation” is information that is deliberately meant to mislead. Effective disinformation is never an outright lie. That would be too easy to see through.

Codex disinformation is plentiful and comes in three distinct flavors. They are listed below with real-life examples to help you to discern fact (that Codex is a threat) from fiction (that Codex is “consumer protection”, “voluntary”, or “urban legend”):
Disinformation Type 1: “Consumer Protection”

Example: The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) is trying to make us believe that Codex is for our own protection from supposedly “dangerous” vitamins and minerals. This type of paternalistically-oriented disinformation strategy sounds palatable, were it not for the simple fact that Codex will not in the least bit protect us from anything. It would unscientifically obstruct our freedom of choice in supplements, herbs, and clean food for no other reason than to eliminate natural health so that the pharmaceutical industry can make more money. The CRN membership is made up of some of the largest pharmaceutical corporations around: Bayer�, Wyeth�, Monsanto�, and others.

Disinformation Type 2: “Voluntary”

Example: National Nutritional Foods Association (NNFA) is supposed to protect the natural supplement industry. But it’s old-time health freedom fighters have been (silently) replaced by people from the pharmaceutical industry. The NNFA is now working hard to make people believe that “Codex is not a problem” because it is “voluntary”. Could this disinformation have anything to do with the fact that the NNFA has members from the pharmaceutical industry? Certainly.

Disinformation Type 3: “Urban Legend”

Example: Snopes.com is a web site that traces the roots of urban legends, to dispel those that are false. But they are in fact creating their own urban legend when it comes to Codex Alimentarius. The urban legend snopes.com is guilty of creating says that “Codex Alimentarius is a hoax”.

Read more about Codex disinformation from Snopes.com
Government Not Exposing Truth

The FDA is known to favor the pharmaceutical industry at the expense of natural health, and thus is by default aligned with the implementation of Codex Alimentarius.

The FDA is firmly committed to “harmonization” with Codex. But this is for economic reasons, not health. “Harmonization” is the process by which Codex overrides the sovereign food and health laws of a country. On an official FDA site, the agency states the following:

“Failure to reach a consistent, harmonized set of laws, regulations and standards within the free trade agreements and the World Trade Organization Agreements can result in considerable economic repercussions.”

Note that there is no mention of health in the FDA’s statement. And there is no mention of health by the FDA anywhere else in relation to harmonization. It is clear among many health experts and analysts that the concern of the FDA in relation to the World Trade Organization (Codex Alimentarius fits into the WTO umbrella), is the protection of the economic interests of the pharmaceutical companies, and not the health of the people.

It is a fact that the pharmaceutical industry carries a lot of influence on the decisions of the FDA.

Where do we go from here? Simple: let’s not believe everything we’re told about Codex Alimentarius.

Let’s bolster our individual power to discern truth and take a pause to consider if what we’ve been told so far by industry and government adds up. It does not add up (Codex would harm consumers, not “protect” them… that you and me). So let’s discard the lies and take action to protect health freedom from Codex Alimentarius.

DID YOU KNOW:

The Natural Solutions Foundation met regularly with foreign Heads of State, Ministers of Health, National Codex Committee members, journalists and health freedom/consumer advocates to alert them to their options in dealing with the threat Codex represents to their food security and safety and educate them about the power and protection inherent in implementing the protective Codex Two Step Process.

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

Disinformation: “Codex is Consumer Protection”

You will hear that Codex Alimentarius is about consumer protection (for example on the official Codex web site). This is not true. Codex Alimentarius is not about consumer protection at all.

Council for Responsible Nutrition Supports Treating Nutrients as Toxins

The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) is a trade organization that spreads the false notion of Codex Alimentarius as “consumer protection” in various press releases and announcements. CRN claims that the science of Risk Assessment, when applied to nutrients, will “protect” consumers. This is an unscientific stance.

How did “nutrients are toxins” become a positive statement, especially by an organization that positions itself as a defender of nutrition and the Wellness Industry? The answer can be found in the membership list of CRN, where many pharmaceutical companies are found (including Bayer�, BASF�, Wyeth�, and Monsanto�).

Deceptive Language Makes it Sound Scientific

CRN publishes a lot of material to make us believe that Codex is the greatest thing ever for the protection of our health.

See, for example, a press release published by CRN titled “Consumers to Benefit as U.N. Body Successfully Moves Scientifically-Grounded Vitamin and Mineral Supplement Guidelines to Final Steps”, dated November 2, 2004. This press release trumpets the so-called “consumer protection” benefits of Codex Alimentarius as follows:

“Building upon a cooperative dialog established at last year’s session in Bonn, government and industry delegates from around the world achieved a consensus on the utilization of a science-based approach to the establishment of the upper limits for vitamin and mineral supplementation…”

“… the Codex Vitamin and Mineral Guideline is a major breakthrough in international cooperation, fully in line with European Union developments and science-based implementation of the European Food Supplements Directive.”

Codex Alimentarius Is Not “Science-based”

The mantra of Codex is “science-based”. Any time Codex wants to do something, they maintain that it is “science based” and therefore must be correct. The language of CRN is deceptive: “science-based” here means simply “use of Risk Assessment”, which is indeed science, but the wrong science for assessing nutrients. We believe CRN knows this but is intentionally deceiving its readers, most of whom will simply accept something if it is said to be “science-based”.

In fact, most people, including the nutritional supplement companies, network marketing companies, and other industry groups that CRN represents, have never even heard of Risk Assessment. Due to this ignorance about what Risk Assessment actually is, and that it is not the proper science for assessing nutrients, few would question it when CRN says that Codex is “science-based”.

It sure sounds scientific.

CRN Used to Be For Health Freedom

CRN was a gallant organization in the 1990s when it fought hard for DSHEA, the vital pro-health freedom law that classifies nutrients as foods (which, by definition, can have no upper limit set on their use). It now represents membership from the pharmaceutical industry, bioengineering, chemical and agrizbiz industries which swells its ranks. Multi-national corporations such as Bayer�, BASF�, Monsanto�, Wyeth�, Archer Daniels Midland�, Eastman Chemical�, Kemen� are all part of the CRN multinational membership roll. They make drugs, pesticides, herbicides, genetically modified foods, and a host of petrochemical derivatives. These members of CRN profit from drugs and chemicals, not natural nutritional products, which challenge their profit bases. Codex serves their agenda, not the agenda of the wellness industry. Hence, CRN’s smoke screen of Codex “consumer protection” makes distressingly good sense from the perspective of industry, which is CRN’s perspective, too.

Abusing the Name of Science

Mark LeDoux, chairman of CRN’s International Trade and Market Development Committee (ITMDC) said:

“The hallmark of this decision [application of RA to nutrients] is evidenced by the development of a scientific collaboration to create a framework for Risk Assessment of nutrients and related substances, under the aegis of the FAO and WHO. We will finally have a quantitative reference guideline that can be used by all countries.”

Once you know that the “scientific collaboration” Mr .LeDoux talks about is the definition of nutrients as toxins, it certainly puts things into perspective: CRN is working to further the corporate Codex agenda and Mr. LeDoux’s words serve that agenda very well.

CRN Hails Flawed European Version of Codex

Natural Solutions Foundation, the organization I am proud to serve as Medical Director, notes that CRN draws a strong parallel between the Vitamin and Mineral Guideline (which stands to eliminate nutritional vitamins and minerals) and the fact that the VMG is:

“fully in line with EU developments and science-based implementation of the European Food Supplements Directive (EFSD).”

In contrast, the National Nutritional Foods Association (NNFA - who are running their own disinformation campaign) and the FDA say that Codex has nothing to do with the EFSD.

Who is right, NNFA/FDA or CRN?

CRN is right on this one. The European Food Supplements Directive, which restricts nutrient dosages so low as to constitute biochemical insanity (pdf), is “the future [nutritional] face of Codex” according to Rolf Grossklaus, MD, the anti-nutrition Chairman of the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for
Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU).

And Codex would be our future, too, because of provisions in the WTO SPSA and TBTA (pdf) (which the US has signed) if we do not take action to prevent it from destroying freedom of choice in health matters.

Whose Side is CRN on: DSHEA or Codex?

CRN has openly declared that it believes nutrients should be treated as toxins by using Risk Assessment (a branch of the science of toxicology) to prevent their doses from “impacting” people who take them.

CRN supports setting “safe” upper limits on nutrient dosages in violation of the law that it worked so hard to pass a decade ago, before the shift in CRN membership from wellness industry to sickness industry members.

Remember, the US nutritional supplements law, DSHEA (Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act), states that nutritional supplements are foods and, as such, can have no safe upper limits. In constrast, the Codex Alimentarius Vitamin and Mineral Guideline would set upper limits for nutritional supplements, and as such, it would violate DSHEA, which is an American law.

Just which standard is CRN supporting? One standard (DSHEA), guaranteed by U.S. law, says that supplements are food. The other one, servicing the economic ambitions of the multinationals who make inconceivable amounts of money from sick crops, sick animals, sick crops and sick people, is the one that we are facing through Codex Alimentarius. This is the standard that is arrogantly claiming that nutrients are toxins and that we need to be “protected” from them.

DSHEA and Codex are diametrically opposed. CRN cannot support both DSHEA and Codex at the same time. It has to be one or the other? Which is it?

CRN supports Codex Alimentarius. And it wants you and I to believe that Codex Alimentarius will be “good” for us. Nonsense.

CRN Infiltrated by Pharmaceutical Industry

Why would a group called “Council for Responsible Nutrition” spread dangerous and unscientific disinformation saying Codex VMG provides consumers with protection from “dangerous nutrient levels”?

Because, although it was once a leader in the consumer protection movement and fought hard for DSHEA, its membership, and hence its objectives, have changed since 1994. Companies like Bayer�, BASF�, Monsanto�, Wyeth�, Archer Daniels Midland�, Eastman Chemical�, Kemen� and the like do not have the same interest you do at heart. Unfortunately.

Since the 1990s, these corporations have infiltrated the ranks of the Council for Responsible Nutrition. Its helpful-sounding name has been usurped for use by its newer members. When CRN speaks about Codex, it is not really speaking out on behalf of nutrition and the wellness industry - it is speaking out for the economic ambitions of the pharmaceutical, chemical, biotechnology, and industrial farming industries.

Mark LeDoux is the chairman of CRN’s International Trade and Market Development Committee (ITMDC). He says CRN supports Codex over DSHEA. Of course it does. One look at its membership, board (pdf), and unscientific stance on the use of Risk Assessment to assess nutrients, tells the story.

The Natural Solutions Foundation established active liaisons with other pro-wellness organizations and individuals around the world.

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

Disinformation: “Codex is Harmless”

There is a distinct class of disinformation about Codex Alimentarius where the claim is made that the whole thing is “voluntary” and “harmless”. Trace it back and you find that the source of this type of disinformation is usually the National Nutritional Foods Association (NNFA).

The NNFA is an organization that proclaims itself as serving the interests of the natural health industry. While that used to be the case, due to infusion of people from the pharmaceutical industry in its membership, that no longer is the case. NNFA runs an entire web site dedicated to instilling the misconception that “Codex is not a problem” and even “Codex is a good thing”. Of course, this is not true. Codex cannot be a good thing unless you are one of the industries that would benefit from it.

What Happened to the Good Old NNFA?

NNFA was instrumental in securing DSHEA in 1994. Back then, it truly was an organization dedicated to the interests of the natural health industry.

However, times have changed.

We know from past Presidents of the organization and industry insiders, that in addition to lots of health food stores, their membership now consists of interests from the pharmaceutical industry.

Because of change in membership, and the fact that the wellness industry members failed to prevent or control “infiltration” by pharmaceutical industry insiders, the NNFA is no longer the same organization that it was in 1994. It has lost leaders and members who fought for health freedom and gained a new contingent of members whose interests are not served by a strong wellness industry. So even though the name remains the same, the changes have clearly altered the objectives of the organization.

The Natural Solutions Foundation is convinced that NNFA is intentionally misleading us about Codex Alimentarius. Because of its former good works, it still wields a lot of clout so we get a lot of questions about our position on NNFA. Some people are confused when we say that the NNFA is working in concert with the pharmaceutical and other pro-illness industries to support the implementation of Codex Alimentarius.

People ask:

“Wasn’t NNFA instrumental in the DSHEA victory back in 1994?”

“Aren’t they supposed to be defenders of natural health and the wellness industry?”

“Why is the NNFA defending Codex which people like Dr. Laibow warns about?”

“Why don’t health food stores and supplement manufactures/marketers seem to be as concerned about Codex Alimentarius as Dr. Laibow?”

“Why would Dr. Laibow warn about Codex if supposed defenders of natural health like NNFA say it may even be a good thing?”

All the above questions make sense if you look at the NNFA as it used to be. It’s not the same organization as it used to be, and this is explained below.

NNFA Spends $800,000 on Disinformation Article

In 2004, the NNFA published an article called “International Natural Products Regulations Q&A: What Affect do they Really Have on the U.S?”. The author is listed as Sidley Austin Brown and Wood LLP, (SABW) NNFA General Counsel”. NNFA is reputed to have paid SABW approximately $800,000 in 2002 for the longer document from which the NNFA Q&A is excerpted. That expensive document misleadingly assures NNFA members that Codex poses no danger to health food store owners, manufacturers and marketers of supplements, or to anyone else involved in the U.S. natural health market, including consumers.

According to public advocate Tim Bolen, SABW is a major Washington lobbying law firm which counts among its major clients at least one pharmaceutical giant.

Did NNFA simply fail to do their due diligence in selecting SABW in selecting a firm with a major pharmaceutical constituency to answer questions about Codex Alimentarius (a potential conflict of interest)?

Could the pharmaceutical industry interests in NNFA and SABW have played a role in the contents of this influential and, we believe, devastatingly incorrect article? We cannot say yes to either question with complete certainty since we do not have the material to back up our suspicions. Instead, we have “read between the lines” and we invite you to do the same and come to your own conclusions.

The SABW-based Q&A is constructed as a dialog between the reader and the NNFA’s legal firm. It is reassuring, authoritative and calming. The NNFA Q&A puts takes the reassuring stance that international natural product regulations (i.e. Codex Alimentarius) would not have a detrimental effect on the U.S. This stance is hollow since it is devoid of any evidence, but it is inaccurate and misleading.

Breaking Down NNFA’s Disinformation Article

Remember that good disinformation is a mixture of truth, half truth, and fabrication (lies). Let us analyze the Q&A article authored by “Sidley Austin Brown and Wood LLP” for NNFA.

The piece begins with a true statement (question 1) which tells us that the European Food Supplements Directive (EFSD) applies only to the EU and not to the U.S. However, it makes no mention that only a small number of vitamins and minerals will be permitted in Europe (and only at ultra low doses) and that only synthetic versions permitted nutrients would have been allowed save for a legal challenge mounted by the Alliance for Natural Health (pdf) and others.

The NNFA document also fails to mention that the EFSD is Codex compliant and will be used as a model for the Codex Alimentarius values for ultra low doses which will be dropped into the Vitamin and Mineral Guideline (VMS) which was ratified for that purpose on July 4, 2005 in Rome by the Codex Alimentarius Commission.

The chairman of the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU), Dr. Rolf Grossklaus, has publicly stated on many occasions that Codex Alimentarius’ nutritional provisions and restrictions will be modeled on the European Food Supplements Directive (EFSD) and other European Directives. In fact, Dr. Grossklaus, who has said that nutrition has no place in medicine, called the EFSD the “future face of Codex” during CCNFSDU meetings.

So the report fails to mention that Codex is modeled on the EFSD and that it is expected that the ultra low doses permitted by the EFSD will become the values permitted by the VMG. So while it is true that there is no legal or structural connection between Codex and EFSD, there is in fact a very strong practical connection.

Now, the EFSD is a very bad idea. Why? Because it bans most nutritional supplements and allows only a small number of ultra low dose vitamins and minerals. This means that a large number of nutritional products stand to be eliminated from the market.

Considering that many of the members of NNFA are in the nutritional supplements business, and some are still members of the wellness industry, one would expect this organization to mention the relation between EFSD and Codex Alimentarius in their article. But they don’t.

Would they have if they did not have ties to the pharmaceutical industries?

Our Suspicions Are Aroused Further

Question 2, 3 and 4 are accurate, too, although the last paragraph of Q4 is interesting. It explicitly disavows the connection between Codex and the EFSD. Legally, this stance is true. But as we mentioned above, functionally, however, there is a close and dangerous liaison between the representative for the EU to the Codex committee dealing with nutrition (CCNFSDU), Dr. Basil Mathioudakis, and Dr. Grossklaus (chair of Codex Alimentarius).

Dr. Grossklaus and Dr. Mathioudakis often confer and make decisions publicly between themselves during the CCNFSDU committee meetings which Dr. Grossklaus chairs. He is reported to check every important decision, however, with Dr. Mathiaoudakis, the EU Observer. Meanwhile, other delegates have no voice in decisions (which the Chairman declares “approved by consensus” even in the face of active opposition by delegates). Dr. Grossklaus has praised the EFSD as “the future face of Codex”.

The $800,000 NNFA article fails to mention these important facts.

Incorrect About Participation Level

Inaccurately stating that the WTO Agreement is “also known as GATT” may not seem like a big problem, but it is an inaccuracy which bears fruit later on. The NNFA states:

“Every country that has ratified GATT (including the United States) has formed an official delegation that it sends to these [Codex] committees.”

This is not true. Not every WTO country sends delegates to Codex by a long shot. So what sounds like an inclusive, whole-world process, is in fact decided upon by around half of the eligible countries. At the July Codex meeting, for example, about 117 countries out of a possible 171 participated. This was, in fact, a relatively unusual large percentage of participants: 68%. But that’s hardly a global consensus. In fact, Codex actually pays for smaller and less developed countries to attend the meetings.

Codex Alimentarius Would be Mirrored on Similar European Directive

The next paragraph asserts that:

“CCNFSDU agreed to make recommendations on final guidelines for vitamin and mineral supplements (and thereafter, possibly, for other types of dietary supplements as well)…”

Scott Tips of the National Health Foundation, a Non Governmental Organizations permitted to speak at Codex meetings, observed the “Meeting of Two” between Dr. Mathioudakis and Dr. Grossklaus.

The EU Representative is insistent upon getting the exact same wording adopted in the Codex Guidelines as is found in the EU FSD.

Now, with the recent committee adoption of the Codex Guidelines for Food Supplements, the EU has successfully created a framework and structure into which it will later drop in restrictive “safe” upper limits and restrictive “Positive Lists” of vitamins and minerals, just as they are doing in the European Union.

What is omitted is a conversation that took place publicly between Chairman Grossklaus and Dr. Mathioudakis when a delegate asked that the Vitamin and Mineral Guideline be specifically restricted to vitamins and minerals. According to Paul Anthony Taylor, an observer at the Bonn, 2003 meeting of the CCNFSDU, Dr. Mathioudakis told the Chairman that he did not wish to identify the standard as pertaining to vitamins and minerals only, because then the Vitamin and Mineral Guideline could not be used to ban all other supplements. The request of the other delegate was not followed.

Instead, as usual, Dr. Mathioudakis’ preference was that the Vitamin and Mineral Guideline should be available to ban all other supplements. NNFA was present at the time this conversation took place since they have observer status as a non-governmental organization. They failed to report this important observation to their constituency either in this article or elsewhere!

Disinformation works by omission of truth, as well as deliberate inclusion of fabrication.

Failing to Mention Napoleonic Code Basis of Codex

Both SABW (authors of the purportedly $800,000 article) and the NNFA fail to mention that the Codex Alimentarius Commission operates under the Napoleonic Code, not Common Law (which is the legal system upon which the United States legal structure is based). The difference between the Napoleonic Code and Common Law is of immense significance here.

Under the Napoleonic Code, anything not explicitly permitted is forbidden. Under Common Law, anything not forbidden is permitted.

What that means for Americans is that if Codex promulgates a list of permitted substances, the so-called “Positive List” (a name which has nothing to do with optimism - it simply means the “only list of allowable items”), everything else that could be on the list but is not would be forbidden. So the Vitamin and Mineral Guideline will have a short “positive list” permitting only a small number of vitamins and minerals at ultra-low doses designed to have no biological impact on the human body. Higher doses or other vitamins and minerals will be forbidden since they are not on the positive list.

Stating that Codex is Voluntary

The next question in the article says that the FDA can decide whether to accept any Codex guidelines adopted by the Codex Commission. The following question informs us that there is no procedural precedent for something like Codex, although an unused provision in the Code of Federal Regulations provides procedures for the adoption of Codex standards.

The Natural Solutions Foundation’s understanding of the situation is quite different. In the October 11, 1995 Federal Register, the FDA policy is clearly stated as preferring international standards to domestic ones, even if the international ones are not yet complete (read “Codex Alimentarius”):

“where a relevant international standard exists, or completion is imminent, it will generally be used in preference to a domestic standard….”

To our knowledge this policy has not changed and, worse, that policy is compliant with the WTO’s SPSA and TBTA treaties (these are treaties parts of the WTO and allow overriding of a nation’s law with regulations approved by the WTO, such as Codex Alimentarius). As Scott Tips observed, the fact is that:

“every WTO member country has signed mutual recognition agreements that require them to engage in a constant process of harmonization. As such, the United States and other countries will eventually be forced to harmonize to the Codex guidelines.”

The NNFA assertion that U.S. law would not be changed by anything contained in Codex is a highly suspect one which has been challenged for many years by a variety of health advocates and legal counsel. The WTO has taken us to court in our own country in order to force changes in our tax law (Massachusetts), our gambling laws(Iowa) and our Environmental Protection Laws (Federal). Further, we have lost all but two of the trade disputes we have had with the WTO. Trade disputes involving food would be automatically settled in favor of countries who use Codex standards and guidelines as their domestic standards.

The pressure is on to undermine DSHEA and other protective legislation so that we will be in a position that allows the WTO to levy sanctions on us once Codex Alimentarius is fully implemented.

False Idea that Codex Would “Abide” By DSHEA

Going back to the Q&A article from NNFA (the one they allegedly paid $800,000 for to a law firm with significant ties to the pharmaceutical industry): in a fascinating paragraph the NNFA article states,

“However, NNFA and other interested groups are working within relevant Codex committees to assure that final Codex Supplement Guidelines are consistent with DSHEA.”

What does that mean? What has NNFA been doing to “assure that final Codex Supplement Guidelines are consistent with DSHEA”? I have written to NNFA on several occasions asking for clarification of this seeming admirable position of support for DSHEA but have not been favored with the courtesy of a reply.

Natural Solutions Foundation has combed NNFA’s available literature and corresponded with NNFA seeking clarification and confirmation of NNFA’s support for DSHEA within Codex and has not yet found any substantiation of this position. We hope that the above statement is accurate, and not merely another fabrication for the sake of disinformation.

Claiming U.S. Law Does Not Reject Codex

The next question in the article,

“Is there anything that would prevent the United States from adopting the Codex guidelines if it chose to do so?”

This is one of the most soothing parts of the piece. Calming and disingenuous at the same time, it is truly masterful disinformation because even the reasonably well informed reader would not realize the deception. Let me explain:

The reply to the above question starts out by telling us that no law prevents the U.S. from accepting Codex guidelines on vitamins and minerals. This is a patently false statement: there is, in fact, an anti-harmonization statute pertaining specifically to the FDA and nutrients which is designed to protect us from a loss of freedom of choice in supplements. Title 19, USC 3512 (1997) prohibits the US from harmonizing with any guideline which violates US law. Unless the pharmaceutical industry friendly parts of Congress succeed in undermining DSHEA, the VMG will certainly violate US law since it violates DSHEA.

Another law, the FDA Modernization Act of 1997 forbids the harmonization of nutrients of any type with any international regulations, standards or guidelines. Why did NNFA’s extensive (and expensive) report not mention these protective laws since their report was produced by such an expensive and experienced regulatory and lobbying law firm? Could it be that they did not want to focus our attention on how important these laws are so they could be quietly repealed or gutted without our realizing what that means to our health freedom?

The NNFA document then says:

“According to a USDA Codex official [not further identified], the U.S. has never changed its laws or regulations to conform to any standards or guidelines adopted by Codex”

… and goes on to assure the reader that,

“it doesn’t appear that any changes to U.S. law or regulations would likely occur as a result of any adoption by the Commission of the vitamin and mineral food supplement guidelines”

All this sounds wonderful but is unfortunately untrue. Health-damaging high-fructose corn surup is now part of our food chain because, although the FDA did not allow it in beverages because of its serious threats to health and tendency to cause obesity (they got that part quite correct), the food manufacturers pointed out to the FDA that fructose is permitted in beverages by Codex so the FDA had no choice but to include a dangerous and unwholesome sweetener in the US food supply. We’ll discuss this in greater detail below.

So Codex Alimentarius has been used before to bolster trade to the detriment of health. But this is not mentioned by the NNFA. The intention behind NNFA’s $800,000 report is very like to lull the reader into a calmed and inactive state about the real threat of Codex Alimentarius.

Stating FDA Can Influence Codex

The $800,000 article states that the decision to adopt the Codex Vitamin and Mineral Guidelines lies with the FDA. The problem is that the FDA is legally barred from making a decision on Codex standards. The NNFA article does not mention this fact. This is an omission or a careful deception.

While the FDA can adopt Codex guidelines, it cannot make decisions about them. The decision is undemocratically left in the hands of the anti-democratic institution, Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC). In addition, once a Codex guideline, standard or regulation is adopted, if the standard is still part of Codex, the U.S. cannot modify, repeal or adjust the standard. We are stuck with it once we accept it lest we want to be punished by the WTO.

The DSHEA Question

It appears to me that if the NNFA were truly supporting and protecting health freedom, they would strongly oppose any move by the FDA to violate the will of the American people through the adoption of any standards that weaken or undermine DSHEA. After all, they stated previously that they were working to get DSHEA adopted as the Codex standard. Unfortunately, this seems to be more of their empty and misleading verbiage, not a useful and powerful position which an organization actually focused on the wellness industry would take and support vigorously.

Sincere health freedom advocates appreciate any effort to protect and extend the influence of DSHEA and other protective legislation which we have fought so hard to win. It would be wonderful if NNFA were serious about their claim to uphold DSHEA as the standard for health legislation both domestically and internationally. NNFA goes on to state that they have filed comments and been “very active” in lobbying for adoption of “DSHEA-style laws”. The problem is that at the same time that they are supposedly defending and extolling the virtues of DSHEA as the standard here and abroad, they have informed their manufacturers that mandating the natural health industry output to ultra low potency nutrients, such as those permitted by the Codex model, EFSD, would be very good for them. It would, they tell their manufacture members, allow them to “sell into countries” around the world like Greece, which have prohibited US high potency nutrients. Selling into Greece, however, comes at a terrible cost to US health and the wellness industry.

At least one manufacturer has announced that they are reformulating their nutrients to conform to the Codex/EFSD values and will be dropping their US line. How many more manufacturers need to yield to this commercial pressure before the high potency market collapses because of increased prices and the on-going media propaganda designed to kill consumer demand for effective nutrients? Why, by the way, is NNFA not vigorously speaking out against this junk-science onslaught which pervades the drug ad supported “Medical Journals”?

Extolling the commercial virtues of selling ultra low potency supplements globally seems to be in striking contrast to NNFA’s purported strong pro-DSHEA stance since the whole point of DSHEA is to protect nutritional supplements as foods (instead of drugs), and prevent so called “safe upper limits?”, i.e., low dosages, from being set on their use since they are foods.

NNFA cannot have it both ways: no one can support both DSHEA and Codex Alimentarius and speak with integrity.

It has to be one or the other, because these two standards (one which is American law, the other which represents the triumph of multi-national corporate economic ambition and has been undemocratically determined) are diametrically opposed in their underlying philosophy and their practical impact:

* DSHEA treats nutrients as foods, and is supported by the science of nutrition (a discipline of Biochemistry)

* Codex Alimentarius Vitamin and Mineral Guideline classifies nutrients as toxins and improperly uses the science of Risk Assessment (a discipline of Toxicology), and violates everything we know about the science of nutrition (biochemistry)

Conclusion: NNFA Putting Profit Before Health

For those who think Codex has not yet affected the health of our nation, here is a surprising revelation:

Fructose and High-Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) entered the beverage supply of the U.S. even though it was well-known to be detrimental to health. According to attorney Jim Turner (of Swanken and Turner), HFCS was barred from use here by regulatory action due to its health hazards. Even so, the American processed food industry pursued a change saying that since it was permitted under Codex Alimentarius standards, it had to be allowed in the U.S. or we would be creating a “hidden barrier to trade”.

Codex Alimentarius is not new. It goes back to 1963. Since GATT was subsumed by the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 1994, the powerful multi-national industries behind it have been flexing their muscles in the attempt to shape Codex to their liking and override domestic laws with it.

High-fructose corn syrup is now widely used in US beverages and foods consumed by Americans. It is linked to childhood and adult obesity, diabetes, stroke, heart attack, cancer, and a host of other serious diseases, which are reaching epidemic proportions in America.

One would assume that the National Nutritional Foods Association, whose mandate is the protection of natural heath, would chose to publicize information about how Codex has already been used to force unwholesome products on the unsuspecting American public. Somehow they appear to have overlooked the factor that made high fructose corn syrup available to the processed food industry in the U.S.

That factor was Codex Alimentarius.

DID YOU KNOW:

The Natural Solutions Foundation met regularly with foreign Heads of State, Ministers of Health, National Codex Committee members, journalists and health freedom/consumer advocates to alert them to their options in dealing with the threat Codex represents to their food security and safety and educate them about the power and protection inherent in implementing the protective Codex Two Step Process.

Disinformation: “Codex is Urban Legend”

The otherwise well-respected urban legends site snopes.com features an article called “Vitamin See” (the reason for this strange name remains unclear to me). In it, the author, Barbara Mikkelson, claims to “debunk” the notion that Codex represents a danger to nutrient access and health freedom. She also makes the incorrect claim that nutrients are dangerous and that we must be protected from them.

Ms. Mikkelson quotes an Internet article by Dr. Wallace G. Heath which makes several accurate, and some inaccurate, statements about Codex Alimentarius. Instead of giving us research on which statements are accurate and which are not, Ms. Mikkelson article on snopes.com suddenly diverges from the statements of Dr. Heath to a lambasting of natural supplements, by through numerous unsupported, factually incorrect statements.

This page seeks to bring to light the factual errors of Ms. Mikkelson’s article.

Unsupported Attacks on Nutritional Supplements

Mikkelson says absurd things about supplements such as,

* “Despite their presence on store shelves, not all dietary supplements are safe for consumers to use, let alone are beneficial to their health.”

[Dr. Laibow: which dietary supplements are unsafe for consumers to use and which are not beneficial to their health?]

* “Products can be 100% natural yet deliver a deadly payload, as have some in the past.”

[Dr. Laibow: which products that are 100% natural deliver a "deadly payload" and what incidents is she discussing?]

* “Lacking regulation of such ingestibles, there is no protection afforded consumers and authoritative-looking labels are no guarantee that what is being vended in those bottles they envelop is not harmful.”

[Dr. Laibow: all supplements made and marketed in the United States are regulated by the FDA]

* “Under current law, dangerous supplements get onto the market and stay there.”

[Dr. Laibow: dangerous supplements are removed promptly, unlike dangerous drugs]

* “Serious physical harm resulting among those who use them, as was the case with ephedra, which caused strokes, heart attacks, and upwards of 150 deaths.”

[Dr. Laibow: the causal relationship of ephedra to any death, stroke, etc., has not only never been established, but has been thrown out by a Federal Court since it was totally unsubstantiated by either science or clinical experience.]

* “In 2004, according to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, almost one in five Americans reported using a supplement, which means the pool of folks at risk is great.”

[Dr. Laibow: the U.S. Government examined all reported cases of ephedra related deaths and found no association between the substance and the deaths. Ms. Mikkelson chooses to ignore this fact]

Federal Judge Does Not Agree With Ms. Mikkelson

Ephedra did not cause “upwards of 150 deaths before the Food and Drug Administration was finally able to get it out of the stores” and not even the most fervent ephedra foe has claimed any such thing! 150 is a totally arbitrary figure produced by Ms. Mikkelson, and there is no verification for it.

In fact, on April 13, 2005, a Federal Judge reversed the FDA ban on ephedra, noting that the ban had violated both the will of the American People and the intent of Congress in the 1994 Dietary Supplements Health Education Act (which classifies nutrients and herbs as food and, as such, permits them to be sold as foods for personal choice).

In addition, the Judge, Tina Campbell, stated that the FDA had used “tobacco science” in attempting to establish ephedra’s toxicity from data which were not applicable and did not make any sense. Somehow, this fact not make it in the snopes.com article.

Which is Safer - Drugs or Nutritional Supplements?

Ms. Mikkelson leaves out the fact that supplements have a safety record so strong that it is an embarrassmen to the pharmaceutical industry. The products of the pharmaceutical industry have been documented to kill a minimum of 106,000 Americans each year when used properly and about 200,000 Americans per year when you count the numbers of people killed by medical error! The same year that this figure was published (1998), there were “only” 43,400 deaths due to car accidents in America. So in America, the land of the automobile, with millions in use everyday, pharmaceutical drugs are deadlier than cars!

Ms. Mikkelson has her facts backwards when she accuses nutritional supplements of putting people “at risk”.

Painting All Supplements As Harmful

Ms. Mikkelson supports the unscientific notion that all supplements are bad, that undermining DSHEA is good, and that none of this relates to Codex Alimentarius (so why then is this in her article on Codex?). In reality, it is domestic law (i.e. DSHEA) that protects us from Codex, and if that law is weakened or nullified, there is no barrier to domestic Codex implementation.

Despite her unsupported claims that those who take supplements are “at risk”, that undermining DSHEA would be good for the country and that the FDA needs more help to regulate these “dangerous” supplements, the risk of supplements is fictional and a diversion from the subject at hand: the question of whether Codex Alimentarius would eliminate our access to nutritional supplements or not.

Making Codex Alimentarius Sound Harmless

Ms. Mikkelson seems to be inferring that Codex Alimentarius is merely a “reference point” with countries having the “option” to “voluntarily” choose their own level of involvement.

The truth is that the Codex guidelines serve as the standards which international dispute resolution uses in order to allow a complaining nation to impose the trade sanctions of its choice on the offending country, if the offending country is not adhering to the standards of Codex Alimentarius in its domestic law.

This means that countries can “sue” each other for not complying with Codex, and it is to be expected that large corporations from one country would use Codex to force other countries into submission. As you can see, in contrast to what Ms. Mikkelson proclaims, Codex is far more than merely a “reference point”!

Furthermore, in addition to the threat of sanctions, because of the WTO’s “Sanitary and Phytosanitary Agreement” and the “Technical Barriers to Trade Agreement” the members of the WTO must bring their domestic laws into conformity with Codex standards. This is a very important fact about Codex. But it is completely ommitted from the snopes.com article. One has to wonder just whose interests Ms. Mikkelson is serving.

This article uses classic disinformation techniques: slander of natural supplements and distraction, false information (such as the false, arbitrary “150 deaths” for ephedra), to give the reader a picture that distorts reality. After reading most of the way through the snopes.com article, an uninformed reader would probably conclude that “there is no Codex problem” and that “vitamins and minerals are dangerous, anyway, and need regulation”. Both conclusions are patently false.

Spuriously Dismissing The Codex-Concerned

Then Ms. Mikkelson throws in some really interesting (and inaccurate) information in an attempt to dismiss those of us who are concerned about Codex Alimentarius:

* “The e-mailed exhortation to rise up against Codex claims that commission’s guidelines regarding dietary supplements “will over ride U.S. law…”

[Dr. Laibow: this is a technicality. The guidelines will not "override" U.S. law -- the Sanitary and Phytosanitary Agreement and the Technical Barriers to Trade Agreement, which are part of the WTO Agreements, can override U.S. law according to legal analysts].

* “… that’s just plain wrong. United States law governs trade within the United States.”

[Dr. Laibow: No, actually, it is right. U.S. law, especially the U.S. Constitution, Article VI, Clause 2, states that treaty law trumps domestic law. Thus, the Sanitary and Phytosanitary Agreement, which is part of treaty agreements and the Technical Barriers to Trade Agreement, would trump domestic law as well.]

* “Codex standards come into play only when American manufacturers of dietary supplements look to vend them on the international market…”

[Dr. Laibow: this is factually wrong although it is widely stated, see below.]

* “… and even then only when the other nations involved have incorporated Codex guidelines into their food laws”

[Dr. Laibow: this, too, is factually inaccurate since all member nations of the WTO are bound by Codex whether or not they have "incorporated Codex guidelines into their food laws", whatever that means.]

Snopes Article is an Urban Legend

One would expect snopes.com to honor its stated purpose of bringing fact, whenever there are facts, to urban legends. But instead, through Ms. Mikkelson’s article, snopes.com is creating an urban legend of its own: the urban legend that Codex Alimentarius is an urban legend.

Massive Campaign to Tarnish Image of Natural Health Care

To solidify and ensure a healthcare system based on drugs, Big Pharma and the Medical Establishment have escalated their campaign to “prove” that nutraceuticals are:

A) Dangerous and/or

B) Ineffective

… and that they thus require severe regulatory restriction on their use.

A) “Dangers” of Nutraceuticals

1) Dangerous drug interactions - The actual or potential “dangerous” interaction of a drug and a nutraceutical is always ascribed to the nutraceutical, never to the drug (no one asks who needs the drug if there is a safer nutraceutical alternative).

2) Adverse reactions - Medical research -often BigPharma-clandestinely-sponsored- showing any adverse reaction of a nutraceutical, no matter how benign, is heralded as evidence of its “danger”. A description of the adverse reactions of myriads of FDA “approved” drugs requires a full-page of illegibly-small print and includes the most serious medical conditions, at times life-threatening.

3) Mortality - To the best of my knowledge, there has not been a single fatality from the use of nutritional supplements in the past decade. Properly prescribed, FDA-approved drugs kill over 100,000 people each year.

B) “Ineffectiveness” of Nutraceuticals

A favorite ploy used in medical research to ensure a finding of ineffectiveness of a nutraceutical is to use it:

1) At too low a level
2) For too short a period of time
3) Isolated from its naturally coexisting factors
4) Use the wrong compound
5) In extreme and confounding conditions

1) Low levels of nutraceuticals - Using low levels, the medical establishment has “proven” and publicized the ineffectiveness of Vitamin C in infection and cancer and dl-alpha tocopherol (not natural mixed-tocopherols) in Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Studies demonstrating their effectiveness when used at higher levels (and in natural form) have been buried and ignored.

2) Too short a period of time - Using Vitamin C for too short a period of time (and at too low levels), Mayo Clinic was able to “prove” the ineffectiveness of Vitamin C for life prolongation in cancer. These studies were published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Linus Pauling’s rebuttal was rejected by the Journal for publication. (In the History of Medicine, this should ensure the Journal’s immortality.)

3) Isolated compounds - Pick any one of the B-Complex vitamins at a time, use it for a prolonged period, in high concentrations and in the absence of the other naturally occurring B-complex vitamins. Prove its side effects or “toxicity”, thus proving the dangers of high-potency vitamin supplements in general. Reductionism is guaranteed to work this way.

4) Wrong compound. Using synthetic and isolated dl-alpha tocopherol acetate, medical researchers were able to prove the ineffectiveness of “Vitamin E” against CVD. Positive studies using natural mixed-tocopherols have been ignored.

5) Extreme and confounding conditions - Pick dying patients on multiple drugs. Show that a nutraceutical used in such a short-term acute situation failed to rescue them. Prove by this that the nutraceutical is ineffective or dangerous for the general public. Do not fault the drugs and/or the extreme medical conditions for this outcome.

The mainstream mass media, with substantial ad revenues from BigPharma, gives front-page headlines to the “dangers” and “ineffectiveness” of nutraceuticals. Myriads of health organizations and societies which receive either BigPharma or HHS support/funding pitch in or remain conveniently silent on this travesty.

A Current Example of the “Proof” of Nutraceutical “Ineffectiveness” and the Mass Media Role:

Who is Behind Codex Alimentarius?

Codex is not about protecting the health of consumers. That’s intentional disinformation. In truth, Codex is about increasing the profits of certain multi-national corporations.

Conclusion Formed From Independent Analysis

No one called up the Natural Solutions Foundation (sponsor of HealthFreedomUSA.org) to say “I have been asked by the inner circle of the Codex Alimentarius Commission to tell you why Codex exists and who profits from it”.

Rather, our analysis is based on observation and deductive logic. What you are about to read represents the opinions of the Natural Solutions Foundation’s founding members.

Invitation to Show Us Otherwise

If you feel that our analysis is incorrect, we invite you to contact us and explain why you feel that way. We would like to be proven wrong. We would welcome being shown that Codex Alimentarius indeed does serve as “protection” for consumers (as is the official explanation). Unfortunately, that is not the reality of the situation. The real reason for Codex Alimentarius is economic. It has to do with wealth, not health. We say this after our Medical Director (Rima E. Laibow, M.D.) meticulously studied over 16,000 pages of Codex documentation. If you do as much research as we have done, you would no doubt come to the same conclusion as us.

Please note that we are not interested in passing judgement on others. Everyone has the opportunity to “turn around” and live in greater harmony with self and others. Having said this, we do not shy away from exposing injustice and corruption. Because unless injustice and corruption are brought to light, they cannot be transformed.

Let’s continue explaining who is behind Codex Alimentarius.

UN, WTO, and Pharmaceutical Lobbyists

The United Nations established the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) in 1962 with the stated goal of ensuring uniform, standardized food across the world.

One of the primary objectives of the establishment of CAC was to remove barriers to international trade in food. At that time, the World Health Assembly of the World Health Organization approved the establishment of the Joint FAO/WHO “Program on Food Standards” to produce standards for food that would then be ratified by the Codex Alimentarius Commission. “Ratification” is the method by which a proposed standard becomes part of the overall Codex Alimentarius mandate. The job of the CAC is ratification of standards set forward by member states. CAC makes all final decisions within the Codex organization.

Codex Alimentarius was birthed through a complex relationship between:

* World Health Organization (WHO)

* Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)

* World Trade Organization (which has been authorized to enforce Codex Alimentarius through draconian trade sanctions)

* American FDA and USDA

These organizations are working in concert with lobbyists of the pharmaceutical , pesticide, chemical, dairy, and biotechnology industries to push Codex Alimentarius upon the peoples of the Earth. It warrants repeating the fact that this push has nothing to do with consumer protection. The push is being made because it serves the profits of aforementioned industries, in particular, the pharmaceutical industry.

Codex Faciliates Elimination of Natural Health Products - Pharmaceutical Industry Benefits Through Monopoly

Dr. Laibow estimates that for every dollar spent on supplements in the United States (approximately $20 billion last year according to Andrew Weil, M.D.) the cost to the pharmaceutical industry is about $40. So the more supplements people buy, the less drugs they buy. Upon observing societal trends, it seems that more and more people are using natural health products. Over 80% of Americans routinely use nutritional supplements. Overall, this is good news for health. But it is bad news for the pharmaceutical industry.

As more people become educated about the curative benefits of natural health products, more and more people will turn away from drugs. Inevitably, this will cut into the profits of the pharmaceutical industry.

The pharmaceutical industry, the largest industry in the world, has demonstrated to the world that it has little respect for the Hippocratic principle of “first, do no harm”. This industry is using Codex Alimentarius to wipe out the emerging natural health competition, and in the process creating a monopoly for pharmaceutical drugs as the sole “health care” product standing.

Drugs can be useful in trauma situations, and we at the Natural Solutions Foundation do not deny this. However, there is a world of difference between providing useful drugs for trauma situations, and literally forcing the world to use drugs as “cure-alls” at the expense of the tremendous benefits of natural health care. That is what Codex Alimentarius would do, beyond the deception of “consumer protection”.

Codex Faciliates Restricting Antioxidants - Helps Allopathic Medical Establishment Maintain Prevalence

In our society, there is an intense educational trend toward natural health. A plethora of natural medicine books, web sites, trade exhibits, magazines, and TV shows are helping people to learn more about optimal health and the natural solutions for disease. Naturopathic doctors, homeopaths, and holistic nutritionists are becoming health care providers of choice for millions.

Due to this intensive educational process that is underway, many people are beginning to understand that free radicals are well established causes of cancer, premature aging, immune system compromise, arthritis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and most other chronic, degenerative diseases.

Free radicals are molecules gone beserk that damage cellular structure like bullets.

The only way that the body can protect itself from free radicals is with high levels of antioxidants, such as glutathione and Vitamin C. Antioxidants are natural substances, and cannot be patented (only synthetic substances can be patented). Thus, from the pharmaceutical industry’s perspective, there is no profit in natural health products.

Because of Codex Alimentarius, antioxidants would be improperly classed as toxins, and consumers would be barred access to useful dosages. Indeed, therapeutic levels of antioxidants would be forbidden under Codex Alimentarius.

If our natural choices in health care (such as antioxidants) are made illegal, then our only legal treatment options would be drugs and surgery. Sometimes drugs and surgery are necessary. But eliminating natural health care has nothing to do with the sometimes usefulness of drugs and surgery.

Surely many respectable surgeons would be upset if their patients were denied access to nutritional supplementation.

While respectable surgeons and medical doctors would be in opposition to the elimination of natural health options, those who make drugs and get paid for allopathic surgical treatments would financially profit as a result. The pharmaceutical industry and the medical establishment (which are in bed with each other) would benefit from a restriction in antioxidant access, because it would keep people in ill health, and thus force them to use drugs and surgery to abate their symptoms.

Codex Faciliates Increased Use of Pesticides - Pesticide Manufacturers Benefit Through Increased Sales

Codex Alimentarius mandates increased use of pesticides on agricultural crops. Pesticide manufacturers make more money when more pesticides are sprayed on Earth.

Pesticides are some of the most toxic substances ever concocted by human beings. Samuel Epstein, M.D., prominent cancer reseacher, states that pesticides are a primary cause of cancer. Dr. Epstein says:

“Pesticides have often been studied for their links to cancer. Populations that are most at risk for pesticide-related cancers include workers with occupational exposure to pesticides, children whose parents have occupational exposure to pesticides, populations living in agricultural areas of heavy pesticide use and children whose parents use pesticides inside and outside of the home.”

It is estimated that 85-90% of all cancers are environmentally caused. “Environmentally” caused means that an illness is caused by toxins taken into the body from all sources apart from food itself. Our present system of agriculture is heavily dependent on pesticides. Our food source is severely contaminated with pesticide residue. Contaminated food means contaminated bodies and poisoned enzymes. Poisoned enzymes means a breakdown in cellular function, which results in diseases such as cancer. Here is a quick primer on the role of enzymes in health:

* Enzymes are the very stuff of life (they activate biological processes in the body)
* Pesticides are highly toxic and poison enzyme systems
* Poisoned enzyme systems result in disease

According to the science of biochemistry, in addition to damaging enzymes, pesticides also wreak havoc with hormonal systems. In light of the science of biochemistry, one would expect the world to move away from the ravage of pesticides. Instead of encouraging a move toward a saner, pesticide-free, organic agricultural system (which has proven to be viable in terms of yield), and thus driving down costs of organic foods to the benefit of people and planet, Codex Alimentarius in essence says: “put more pesticides on crops, and when you get sick from all the toxins you ingest, I wont let you use nutrients to detoxify - I will force you to treat the symptoms of your pesticide-induced diseases with pharmaceutical drugs”.

Codex Alimentarius does not faciliate health. It facilitates profit. Codex Alimentarius facilitates increased sales of pesticides, which no health-promoting organization would do. The fact is that the chemical industry selling pesticides, herbicides and other poisons for use on crops and animals, reaps humungous profits while devastating the health of people and the environment. Codex Alimentarius is in bed with pesticide manufacturers.

Codex Facilitates Food Irradiation - Food Processors Save Money on Lack of Hygiene

Codex Alimentarius mandates food irradiation. Who benefits from food irradiation? Food growers and processors, who can use irradiation as an excuse to spend less money on true hygiene and sanitation.

Food irradiation means exposing food to high doses of X-rays to kill everything alive within the food, including beneficial enzymes and nutrients as well as harmful micro-organisms. Food irradiation is also called “cold sterilization”. It is advertised as a means to food hygiene, but in truth, it is not hygienic at all.

The criteria for hygiene after food irradiation is a simplistic bacteria count - “clean means no bacteria”. This is simplistic and does not consider the many other aspects of food hygiene. One of the arguments against food irradiation is that sloppy and appalling hygiene practices are disguised by the lack of bacteria after food is irradiated. Food irradiation also decimates nutrients, especially enzymes, leaving the irradiated food devoid of nutritional value.

Contamination of food is complex in today’s world of industrial farms, feedlots and mass-processing plants. Codex Alimentarius explicitly allows “edible offal” (read “fecal material”) in animal feed. After irradiation, the micro-organisms in the feed (such as bacteria) are dead and, thus, considered “acceptable”. Even if they contain feces. Unclean, poorly handled and contaminated food is passed on to the consumer. And, just because there is no bacterial count, it is (wrongly) assumed to be fit for human consumption. This is an unethical way to produce and sell food.

Who benefits from improperly handled food? The agricultural industry does which grows processed food and sells poor quality, unhygienic food using cheap and unwholesome feed components that reduce their expenses.

Codex Facilitates Unlabeled Genetically Modified Ingredients (GMOs) - Allows Sale of GMOs By Stealth

Codex Alimentarius would allow GMOs to become even more widespread than they are now. The present United States administration (which we hope is expelled in the next election) is a firm proponent of the unlabeled use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). Little or nothing is known about the digestion, distribution and impact of these “Frankenfoods”. Dr. Walter Doefler of the Institute of Genetics, University of Cologne did a study that found that artificial genes enter the brains of mice.

Dr. Doefler made the following statement after this research finding:

“the idea that fragments of DNA from viral promoters could find their way into cells of new-born babies is a frightening prospect… yet Monsanto admitted in the World in Action programme [sic] that they do not conduct long term testing of these genetically engineered foods”.

Because of the blowing wind, drift of genetically modified pollen is an established fact. Due to this drift, crops world wide regularly become contaminated with genetically modified seeds.

Once a crop is contaminated, not only is it of questionable safety, but it bizarrely becomes vulnerable to legal predation by the owner of the patent-holder of the contaminating GMO. For example, American farmers are regularly sued by multinational biotechnology corporations (such as Monstanto�) because they save seeds from their own fields for next year’s crop. In many cases their fields are contaminated by pollen from nearby GMO crops without their knowledge! Monsanto� then sues them for “infringement on intellectual property rights”!

And farmers lose their cases in court, since patent law protects the trespassing patent holder, not the innocent farmer.

Agricultural and biotechnology corporations benefit financially from the unlabelled use of GMOs. The agricultural corporations have laid a net over the future of agriculture and are extracting duty for it: tariffs and taxes on the genetic material of plants, which in truth no one owns. Biotechnology corporations profit from the diabolical strangle-hold their patent rights give them over natural crops when fields are irreversibly polluted by wind-born GMO pollen.

Conclusion: Codex Alimentarius Serves Profit, Not People

So who is behind Codex? The answer is obvious: those who are motivated by short-sighted economic interest (i.e. greed) and an astonishing disregard for the well-being of anything that stands in their path. They are using deception, a false image of being scientific, and coersion, to get their way.

Dr. Laibow: It is my opinion and the opinion of many other medical doctors, scientists, lawyers, and politicians, that while Codex Alimentarius may have initially been born out of a concern for the well-being of the people of the Earth, its mission has changed dramatically and is now about illegitimate greed, not legitimate need.

Codex Alimentarius is Unscientific

Codex Alimentarius is made up of many so-called “guidelines”. One of these is the “Vitamin and Mineral Guideline”. It alleges to “safeguard consumer health” against “dangerous levels” of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. But in truth, like the rest of Codex Alimentarius, it is not about consumer protection at all. Not only that, but it is highly unscientific, as shall be explained on this page.

Declaring Nutrients as Toxins

Codex Alimentarius has declared nutrients to be toxins. How has it done this? Through distorting real science into a meaningless, pseudo-scientific framework that allows the convenient elimination of vitamins, minerals, and eventually all other nutrients from the market.Why would any one do something this absurd and harmful? Simple: the purpose behind Codex Alimentarius is to eliminate competition to the pharmaceutical industry. However, it is necessary to give people the impression that Codex Alimentarius operates scientifically, even though this impression has nothing to do with reality.

The corporations behind Codex Alimentarius know that if people knew that it was unscientific, they would resist it. So, the careful application of deception enters the picture.

Codex Alimentarius Uses the Wrong Science to Assess Nutrients

The proper science for assessing nutrients is Nutritional Science, which is a branch of Biochemistry, “the science of life”.

But Codex Alimentarius uses Risk Assessment, a branch of Toxicology, the science of toxins, to assess nutrients!

Nutrients are not toxins and therefore cannot be treated as such without yielding false data.

Even a science novice understands that in order to get the right answers, the appropriate science must be used to ask the right questions. Using Risk Assessment to assess nutrients is simply not the right tool for the job. Risk Assessment is properly used to determine the largest dose of a toxin that people can be exposed to without any discernible impact on them. However, Codex has modified the science of Risk Assessment for its own use, without either peer review or scientific validation, to bypass the fact that nutrients are essential for life. Risk Assessment procedures are completely inappropriate for the purpose it is being used for here. How can the Codex Alimentarius people not know this?

We believe they do know. And we believe that Risk Assessment is being intentionally used to deceive people into believing that Codex Alimentarius is “scientific” when, in fact, it is pseudo-scientific. Using toxicology to treat nutrients as toxins yields “data” that “shows” that nutrients are “dangerous”, and that’s why it is being used. This is either an intentional scheme, or the “scientists” working on this project are totally incompetent and should be fired immediately.

Setting Ridiculously Low “Safe Upper Limits” With Junk Science

Using Risk Assessment, the Codex Alimentarius Vitamin and Mineral Guideline would set incredibly low doses for vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.

For example, Codex intends to restrict the Vitamin C you’re allowed to use to only 200mg/day, or even substantially less, whereas in my clinical practice I routinely give 10,000 mg/day to patients with great success (or many times that amount, if needed). Codex would justify limiting Vitamin C intake to a mere 200mg/day (a useless amount!) through its unscientific application of Risk Assessment/ toxicology, a science totally irrelevant to nutrients.

If toxicology were applicable to nutritional supplements, then a concentrate of tomatoes, lettuce, apples, or broccoli would be “dangerous” and illegal, too, because it would contain nutrients, classed as toxins in Codex-land, higher than those found in food! That is exactly how irrational Codex Alimentarius’ relationship to nutrition is.

Why Nutrients Are Vital to Health and Longevity

Nutrients are essential components of enzyme function in the human body and enzymes are the very stuff of life because they carry out every biological process in your body. Without enzymes, nothing would happen. Literally.

There would be no digestion, no growth, no detoxification… no life. At any moment, approximately 35,000 enzymatic reactions are occurring in every cell of your body. Nutrients feed and support enzymatic action and that’s why they are so crucial to health.

Optimal enzymatic action = optimal health
Healthy enzymatic action = health
Impaired enzymatic action = symptoms
Unhealthy enzymatic action = illness
No enzymatic action = death

Your body has varying needs for nutrients based on genetic diversity and requirement, diet, climate and energy output, toxic load (from food, water, air, and skin absorption), underlying nutritional deficits, diseases and stress of every type (including emotional and electromagnetic stressors). The fact that there are so many factors affecting nutrient need is called “Biological Individuality”, and is totally absent from the philosophy of Codex Alimentarius.

The Body Can Handle Excess Nutrients Without Needing Codex Alimentarius to “Help” It

The body has evolved in the presence of changing nutritional availability so it has developed effective mechanisms to rid itself of excess nutrients (or store them for future shortages). It is fair to say that after millions of years of evolution, the human body knows how to handle nutrients.

Because of Biological Individuality, there is no thing as a scientifically measurable “upper limit” for nutrients. True, a person might be able to take an unreasonable numbers of capsules of a nutritional supplement and cause themselves harm through ignorance. Even that would be really hard to do since the real toxicity of nutrients is so astonishingly low! Such a person would have their ignorance to blame for any ensuing digestive problems or cellular imbalance, not the nutrient. And we are talking mega-gram doses here, while Codex Alimentarius would restrict the nutrients it would allow to thousands of degrees lower, in the milligram range (and it would only allow around 20 nutrients, period).

There are important considerations when using nutritional supplements, such as taking high quality, balanced forms of nutrients (e.g., a natural vitamin E supplement instead of a synthetic isolate), consuming natural forms versus synthetic whenever possible, and using appropriate dosages for each particular unique individual. And, of course, let us not forget that more is not necessarily better.

But Codex Alimentarius is totally unconcerned with sound nutritional supplementation principles. It is focused on banning nutrients altogether, through setting unscientific “upper limits” in the name of “consumer safety”, using an intentionally deformed version of a branch of toxicology.

This deception is by conscious design. It is intended to convince you and me that there is real, valid and meaningful science involved in the Codex Alimentarius Vitamin and Mineral Guideline’s limitations on nutritional supplementation. There is not. The science used is irrelevant to the task at hand, which is bad as using no science at all.

Nutrients Are OK for Human Body, But Toxins Are Not

Your body has evolved graceful and efficient means of dealing with excess intake of nutrients. However, what it has not evolved is protection from man-made toxins, which are predominantly the result of the relatively recent industrial revolution. Man-made, real toxins poison our enzymes and greatly increase nutrient requirements.

It is important to remember that DSHEA guarantees Americans that there will be no upper limits for nutrients and herbs because nutrients and herbs are foods, not drugs! Scientifically, DSHEA is right on the mark. It honors the science of Biochemistry by recognizing your biochemical individuality and the fact that nutritional and herbal supplements are foods, and therefore can have no upper limits.

While there is always the question of manufacturer honesty in the labeling of supplements (or any other) products, that is another discussion altogether and does not justify the unscientific use of Risk Assessment by Codex Alimentarius.

How Risk Assessment Works

Risk Assessment is a branch of the science of Toxicology which is used for the assessment of toxins, substances which poison enzymes. It was never meant to be used for nutrients.

Risk Assessment demands testing toxins on live animals to kill half of them. This does not happen with nutrients, and thus, if nutrients were taken to the lab to be tested using Risk Assessment, the experiment would be futile as no animals would die. In fact, Codex Alimentarius does not take it to the lab - it only uses Risk Assessment on paper.

If you want more detail about exactly how Risk Asessment works, click here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Risk_assessment

Codex Alimentarius Myth: World-wide “Average” Diet

Among the major problems Codex Alimentarius has created for itself is its totally unfounded assumption that there is an “average” global diet! This is either a pipe dream or a fantasy.

You do not eat the same “average” diet as a Chinese half-way across the world!

The Chinese does not eat the same “average” diet as the Swede half-way across the world!

People in Hawaii do not eat (or need) the same diet as a Norwegian fisherman who spends 6 months in dark winter!

Nor do the peoples of the world have the same genetic or environmental needs for nutrients (for example, consider Vitamin D requirements in equatorial Africa and mid-winter Scandinavia).

Again: is your diet the same as the diet of the Chinese? Is the Chinese diet the same as the diet of the Swede?

Unless all human beings become accustomed to a standardized Big Mac� diet, the answer is a resounding “NO!”.

There can be no average diet in the real-world. Humanity is so diverse, culinary habits, individual preferences, tolerances and food availability are so vastly varied, and so dependent on culture, that there can be no real average.

But Codex Alimentarius is not concerned with the real world. It is concerned with creating pseudo-scientific concepts for the sake of furthering an agenda that has nothing to do with consumer protection.

Even Codex Delegates Are Shocked

While flying over to observe the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) meeting in Rome, Italy (July 2005), I had the opportunity to speak with delegates from a variety of developing nations.

I asked each one of them if they understood what nutrient levels determined by Risk Assessment would mean to their countries, their pregnant mothers and babies, their rates of cancer, etc. They had literally no idea what I was talking about!

Codex Alimentarius is busy keeping the truth from everyone, including its own delegates.

I explained the problem and these mid to upper level bureaucrats had a universal reaction: they dropped their jaws, stared at me in absolute horror and asked if I would help them. I said “yes” and the Natural Solutions Foundation is working hard to create the information that they need to resist this deadly option.

Conclusion: It’s About Image

We believe that Codex Alimentarius is using Risk Assessment to create the image that it is scientific. Since most people have never heard of Risk Assessment and thus have no idea what it is, and thus wouldn’t know the difference between Risk Assessment and Biochemistry, most people easily believe the image of Codex Alimentarius as a science-based organization with the goal of “protecting consumer health”.

Few people would do the research it takes to uncover the truth that Risk Assessment is the wrong science for the job.

If Codex Alimentarius used the right science for the job of assessing nutrients (Biochemistry), it would not be able to restrict nutrients. Why?

Because the irrefutable data of Biochemistry does not support restricting nutrients. Quite the contrary: Biochemistry points irrefutably to biochemical individuality and the enzymatic support which nutrients offer.

But, after all, the whole point of Codex Alimentarius is to create false and misleading data which creates alarmism around nutritional supplements. So that these natural health substances and natural and nutritional medicine (NNM) can be eliminated from the market. With the elimination of NNM and natural health competition, the profits of the pharmaceutical industry would be secured.

How Codex is Formulated & Imposed on Nations

Codex Alimentarius committees (of which there are more than 20), “regional committees” and “task forces”, prepare and develop standards and guidelines on every aspect of food, “from farm to fork”. After these committees and task forces formulate standards which become ready for ratification (once they reach step 8 of the forumlation process), they are then presented to the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) for ratification.

CAC is the top-level of the Codex hierarchy.

Codex is Anti-Democratic

Committees and CAC operate through poorly defined “consensus” with no attempt at democratic decision-making. The proceedings are determined by the dictates of individual chairpersons. Thus, actions of the committees and the CAC may not carry out the will of delegates or the countries they represent.

Dr. Grossklaus, Chairman of CAC and anti-nutrition Chairman of the pivotal “Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses” (CCNFSDU), had the delegate from India bodily removed during a November 2003 CCNFSDU meeting. The delegate’s crime? Insisting on discussing the inclusion of CCNFSDU-approved material in baby formula which could kill 10% of newborns in his country. After the delegate was forcibly removed, Dr. Grossklaus nonchalantly declared the issue approved by “consensus”.

“Consensus” has never been carefully defined. It seems that according to Codex Alimentarius, consensus is achieved when:

* Everyone agrees
* Everyone has been heard from
* There is no sustained opposition

While that sounds good, the problem is that there is no democracy in the process. It is important to note that the Chairman can prevent a delegate from being heard by deliberately refraining from turning on the delegate’s microphone. So if the Chairman (i.e. Dr. Grossklaus) does not like what is being said, he can flip a switch (or refrain from flipping it in the first place), and that will be that. This guarantees that there is no sustained opposition if the Chairman does not want there to be any opposition.

Conflict of Interest

Dr. Rolf Grossklaus, CCNFSDU chairman, is also the Chairman of the Board of BfR, a private corporation which specializes in Risk Assessment. Dr. Grossklaus’s company submits Risk Assessment values to Codex. In his position at Codex Alimentarius, Dr. Grossklaus contributed to the bizarre definition of nutrients as toxins, and promoted the use of Risk Assessment to determine their “maximum” dosages.

Dr. Grossklaus is on record having said that “nutrition is not relevant to health” and that nutrients “have no place in the prevention, treatment or cure of any disease or condition”.

How Codex Standards Are Implemented

Once ratified by the CAC, a guideline, standard or regulation is implemented in one of two ways:

* Codex Alimentarius is accepted by the WTO and is used to decide trade disputes. Crushing trade sanctions may be applied to countries found to be in violation of the Codex Alimentarius Standards via the World Trade Organization (WTO) Dispute Resolution process. A country which is in compliance with Codex in its domestic laws is deemed to be the automatic winner in a trade dispute with a country whose laws are not Codex-compliant. Codex thus provides the WTO with a set of regulations by which it can judge whether a country is providing a hidden or overt barrier to trade (i.e. not complying domestically with Codex regulations).

* Domestic compliance may be required by WTO Trade Agreements. The WTO has challenge US laws in court 11 times and won each time. The Congress of the US has changed our laws to comply with the WTO and we have lost all but 2 trade disputes within the WTO resulting in immense trade sanctions. The prevailing country, by the way, selects the area in which the trade sanctions will be applied in order to damage the offending country in the way that serves its needs best. Both the Sanitary and Phytosanitary Agreement (SPSA) and the Technical Barrier to Trade Agreement (TBTA) (both WTO sub-agreements which the United States has unfortunately signed) have provisions which could be used to force US law into compliance with Codex Alimentarius. Many fear that both CAFTA and NAFTA could do the same (force compliance with Codex) as could the FTAA agreement. Article 3 of the SPSA makes domestic compliance mandatory with WTO-accepted standards (e.g. Codex Alimentarius) regarding toxins. Countries whose domestic law complies with Codex are held to be in automatic compliance with Codex Alimentarius for the WTO Dispute Resolution purposes. Countries not in internal compliance with Codex Alimentarius can be held to be providing a hidden barrier to trade in any food-related trade dispute and be subject to severe WTO trade sanctions.

WTO Coerces Compliance With Codex

Codex Alimentarius has no legal standing on its own. It is merely a set of regulations lacking any means of implementation except for the fact that it has been accepted by the WTO.

On October 11, 1995 the United States Federal Register announced that it is now FDA policy to accept international standards, whether completed or nearing completion, in preference to domestic standards. Thus, the groundwork was laid from the inside for the replacement of our domestic laws, standards and regulations with Codex’s inferior ones (our domestic laws and standards are far superior in terms of scientific validity, consumer protection and safety).

Due to this FDA policy, undemocratic changes of national and state legislation and standards take place despite the will of the American people (with this will being expressed through laws passed by the people’s elected representatives). Endangered species protection, Massachusetts tax law, Iowa gambling legislation and the presence of fructose in our beverages (with all the accompanying health risks) are just a few of the areas already challenged and changed by the WTO in our own courts. Our sovereign laws are being subjugated by an undemocratic, ill-defined body of elite financiers who seem to see only dollar signs: the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Codex Alimentarius is supported by the WTO. When Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D., author of “Death by Medicine”, attended a Codex committee meeting (CCNFSDU, Bonn, 2004), a long-time employee of Codex told her that once the World Trade Organization took over Codex in 1995…

“It was no longer in the hands of the 165 member nations of the WHO (World Health Organization) but in the hands of trade organizations in the 148 countries of the WTO (World Trade Organization), which seems intent on standardizing everything to do with international trade in our emerging global economy.”

Thus, the sanctioning power of the WTO is what breathes life into Codex Alimentarius, because if member nations don’t comply, they will face disastrous trade sanctions as penalties for that lack of compliance. To make matters far worse, developing nations are being urged to adopt the Codex standards as their own domestic laws lock, stock and barrel so the US is guaranteed to loose in every trade dispute involving food unless it, too, adopts Codex as our domestic standard.

Wealth - Not Health

Not surprisingly, with this kind of WTO-sanctioned economic pressure, countries are motivated to bring their domestic laws into compliance with Codex out of fear of the WTO and the heavy burden of trade sanctions, not because of any health benefits to their people.

As a physician practicing Natural Nutritional Medicine (NNM), I am unable to identify a single health benefit associated with Codex Alimentarius.

It is well-known that the WTO’s agenda is dictated by the largest corporations on Earth, which are not well-known for their regard for the health of the people and planet.

Codex Alimentarius and the Napoleonic Code

Codex Alimentarius does not operate on the Common Law principles that we take for granted here in the U.S. It operates under the Napoleonic code.

Under our Common Law, anything not prohibited is permitted. Thus, when Congress passed the Dietary Supplements Health Education Act (DSHEA) in 1994 (classifying nutrients and herbs as foods rather than drugs) we gained the guarantee that new substances developed or discovered after 1994 cannot be prohibited just because they did not exist as nutrients before the passing of the act. Under DSHEA, nutrients are still regulated by the FDA, which can demand that Good Manufacturing Practices be employed to make sure the nutrients are of high quality.

However, the situation would be very different under Codex Alimentarius.

Napoleonic Code Opens Door to Government Tyranny

Codex Alimentarius standards and guidelines are not part of the American legal/regulatory tradition. Instead, they are part of the European Napoleonic code. Unlike ours, the Napoleonic code holds that everything that is not explicitly permitted is prohibited!

Who would have to explicitly permit something? A government regulatory agency. A bureaucratic body.

Nothing Positive About Codex “Positive List”

Under the Codex Alimentarius system, everything not explicitly permitted is prohibited. That means that the system under which Codex operates uses a “Positive List”. Things on a positive list are permitted.

Things omitted from the positive list are forbidden.

For example, if nutrients at particular doses are included on the Codex list, they are permitted. If they are not on the list or if other doses are used than what is specified on the list, they are prohibited. It is exactly as if they had been explicitly forbidden!

Although those who are warning about Codex Alimentarius have focused on the nutritional aspect until now (the Vitamin and Mineral Guideline), Codex is really much more broad than just limitations on nutritional supplements (and that is bad enough!). Codex would regulate everything you put in your mouth for either nutrition (from “farm to fork”), and eventually, treatments too (i.e. homeopathics and herbal products are at risk).

Arbitrary Power to Forbid Substances Even If Safe

“Forbidden”. That is the message of the Napoleonic legal code: if you don’t have explicit permission to do something, it is forbidden. Is that how Americans want their health choices defined? Not that it would be much of a choice if government tells you what to do and what not to do.

World Health Organization Chastises Codex

Codex Alimentarius is a joint project of the World Health Organization (WHO) and Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO). WHO provides 1/3 of the budget to Codex, while FAO provides the remaining 2/3. Codex regulations are actively being formulated despite the fact that they explicitly conflict with the findings (PDF) of the World Health Organization (WHO) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). As amazing as it may sound, the Codex Alimentarius Commission has defiantly rejected WHO and FAO policies and reports.

It turns out that there are people working within the WHO and FAO who are on the side of health freedom and do not want to see Codex Alimentarius eliminate access to nutritional supplements or make the other disastrous pro-illness choices it seems determined to make.

Dr. Laibow observed this damning criticism of Codex when she attended the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) meeting in Rome (Italy) in the early weeks of July, 2005.

Her reportage resonated around the Internet community in the form of a widely disseminated press release.

Codex Scolded in Rome

At the Rome Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) meeting (July, 2005) the WHO literally lambasted Codex about its of contribution to human health during its 42 years of existence. This was seconded by the FAO representative.

Here’s the drama as I (Dr. Laibow) observed it in Rome:

After the CAC chairman (Dr. Rolf Grossklaus) had succeeded in approving the destructive Vitamin and Mineral Guideline (and either advancing or ratifying a large number of equally destructive guidelines, regulations and standards), the WHO Undersecretary took the microphone and sharply criticized Codex for failing to make a contribution to human health. She noted that the reason that Codex has not had an increase in funding from the WHO was because of its poor performance in relation to human health!

Shortly before that, the report of the Joint Consultant’s Report (funded by FAO and WHO) was presented. Item No. 18 stated that “Codex should determine if it has a relationship with nutrition and, if so, what that relationship is”. The CAC Chairman permitted no discussion of that item. When the Undersecretary noted that if Codex does not take nutrition more seriously, the consequences would be serious, her tone of voice was very forceful and the whole room seemed to be in shock!

The Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) Chairman did not allow for discussion. This is to be expected based on his autocratic manner.

But the next day, another representative of the WHO stated that CAC would implement the WHO global strategy for Health through Diet, Physical Exercise and Nutrition. In order to do that, the WHO representative said that CAC must either change the mandate of the two committees which deal with nutrition (Dr. Grossklaus’ “Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses”, CCNFSDU and the “Codex Committee on Food Labeling”, CCFL) or create a new task force to deal with nutrition.
The FAO representative seconded the WHO position.

This was totally unprecedented and sent shockwaves of opportunity around the health freedom community. As an observer of the meeting, Dr. Laibow saw firsthand how WHO scolded Codex. Here’s what she wrote in her blog:

“At the very end of today’s deliberations, the WHO, one of the parent bodies of Codex, made it clear that Codex had done little to advance health during its 42 years of existence and that was about to end. The WHO undersecretary made it very clear that the WHO Global strategy for diet, exercise, nutrition and health would be implemented by Codex and, in order to do that, the two committees of Codex which could deal with nutrition would have to deal with nutrition. An official joint publication by the WHO and FAO called “Diet, Nutrition and the Prevention of Chronic Diseases” (pdf) is in favor of nutritional supplementation. Whereas Codex Alimentarius would eliminate meaningful dosages of nutritional supplementation, and thus violate the findings of this publication.”

WHO Publication Supports Nutritional Supplements

As mentioned above, WHO and FAO jointly authored a document called “Diet, Nutrition and the Prevention Chronic Disease”. This document makes it clear that supplemental feeding is essential for the prevention and treatment of chronic disease, especially in the developing world. The report states that the WHO and FAO,

“recognized that the growing epidemic of chronic diseases afflicting both developed and developing countries was related to dietary and lifestyle changes.”

These two organizations then noted,

“Furthermore, rapid changes in diet and lifestyles have occurred with industrialization, urbanization, economic development and market globalization, all accelerated over the past decade. This is having a significant impact on the health and nutritional status of populations, particularly in developing countries and countries in transition”

The report then makes an explicit statement that nutrition affects health:

“Because of these changes in dietary and lifestyle patterns, chronic NCDs [i.e., Non Communicable Diseases] - including obesity, diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease (CVD), hypertension and stroke, and some types of cancer - are becoming increasingly significant causes of disability and premature death in both developing and newly developed countries, placing additional burdens on already overtaxed national health budgets.”

In addition to looking at the problem of under-nutrition, the report states that nutrition is a major factor in the manifestation and treatment of disease:

“Nutrition is coming to the fore as a major modifiable determinant of chronic disease, with scientific evidence increasingly supporting the view that alterations in diet have strong effects, both positive and negative, on health throughout life. Most importantly, dietary adjustments may not only influence present health, but may determine whether or not an individual will develop such diseases as cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes much later in life. However, these concepts have not led to a change in policies or in practice. In many developing countries, food policies remain focused only on undernutrition and are not addressing the prevention of chronic disease.”

“Chronic diseases are largely preventable diseases. Although more basic research may be needed on some aspects of the mechanisms that links diet to health, the currently available scientific evidence provides a sufficiently strong and plausible basis to justify taking action now.“

But Codex Would Eliminate Nutritional Supplements

Remember that therapeutic supplementation would become illegal if Codex if the U.S.A is harmonized with Codex. For example, folic acid in high dosages would be banned. But look at what the report, produced by WHO, has to say about Cardiovascular Disease and folic acid supplementation:

“The relationship of folate to CVD (Cardio Vascular Disease) has been mostly explored through its effect on homocysteine, which may itself be an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease and probably also for stroke. Folic acid is required for the methylation of homocysteine to methionine. Reduced plasma folate has been strongly associated with elevated plasma homocysteine levels and folate supplementation has been demonstrated to decrease plasma homocysteine levels.”

As you can see, WHO explicitly supports folate supplementation. Despite this, clinically significant folate supplementation would be unavailable in countries which harmonize with Codex Alimentarius!

The WHO findings and others like them have been rejected by the Codex Alimentarius Commission and especially by the nutrient-hostile Dr. Grossklaus, Chariman of the CCNFSDU. The Codex Committee on Food Labeling (CCFL) has promulaged standards that forbids discussion or dissemination of any benefits for nutritients and supplements. These are the two committees which the WHO has demanded to redefine their mandate to deal with nutrition, or have CAC create a task force to deal with nutrition, according to the findings of the joint WHO/FAO report on nutrition (pdf).

Codex Facing Repercussions from WHO/FAO

In conclusion, the WHO/FAO report is supportive of nutritional medicine and nutritional supplementation. There are strong pro-health forces within both organizations.

We at the Natural Solutions Foundation are working to become strongly associated with these pro-health forces, so that we can support them in their desire to bring the corporate agenda behind Codex Alimentarius to heel. What do this report and the WHO Global Strategy mean in the context of Codex? It means that the pro-corporate profit, pro-illness policies of the current Codex Alimentarius is going against the findings of two of the largest health organization in the world, the WHO and FAO… which also just happen to be the parent organizations of Codex Alimentarius.

So, because Codex Alimentarius is totally dependent on funding from the WHO and FAO, this disobedience to the wishes of the parents will probably have repercussions for the Codex Alimentarius Commission.

We hope it does.

DID YOU KNOW:

The Natural Solutions Foundation inaugurated the International Decade of Nutrition in September 2006 to use what we currently know about nutrition and agriculture to eliminate world hunger and preventable disease and to demonstrate the massive impact and effect of nutrition on personal and national physical and health and overall economic well-being all over the world. Using simple strategies we can eliminate world hunger and promote optimal world health and health-promoting nutritional strategies while avoiding World Trade Organization (WTO) trade sanctions and correcting the dangers Codex could have imposed.

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

Consequences to Human & Environmental Health

Implementation of Codex Alimentarius would result in severe repercussions for both human and environmental health. If implementation of Codex is not averted, here are a few of the damaging changes we will have to live with:

* High potency nutrients? Illegal.

* Valuable nutrients not on Codex list? Illegal.

* New nutrients or herbs? Illegal.

* Traditional medicines with nutritional value? Illegal.

* Antibiotic and hormone-free milk, poultry, fish and meat? Not available from supermarket due to degraded organic standards.

* Safe levels of pesticides, hormones, animal drugs and other toxins? Gone.

* Labeling for GMOs? Illegal.

* Non-irradiated food? Illegal.

Loss of Access to Natural Health Products Would Result in Huge Increase In Illness

This July 4, in Rome, the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) ratified the destructive Codex Alimentarius “Vitamin and Mineral Guideline”.

Vitamins and minerals in doses high enough to do have a therapeutic effect could become just a memory if America harmonizes with the Vitamin and Mineral Guideline. Other nutrients (such as amino acids and herbs) will, according to Codex, follow quickly. The driving force of the VMG is economic, not medical, and has nothing to do with consumer protection, as explained here.

High potency nutritional products are highly beneficial for health. Many people would suffer greatly if nutritional products were removed from their reach while health promotion and disease prevention would be nearly impossible without them.

Undermining Organic Farming Standards

Codex Alimentarius makes a farce out of organic farming. While “organic farming standards” do exist under Codex, they are extremely weak, vague and unenforceable. For example, Codex organic standards allow the use of veterinary drugs and the an unacceptably rapid conversion of conventional to organic, compared to current U.S. organic standards.

The spread of true organic farming, where no pesticides, herbicides, or animal husbandry drugs are allowed, would cut into the profits of the sellers of pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics and hormones for animals.

Giving Free Reign to Unlabeled GMOs

Codex Alimentarius would forbid the labeling of GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) and permit their world-wide use in the animal and plant kingdoms despite their serious health consequences for both the people who consume them and the environment. Many GMO seeds cannot germinate without toxic pesticides or herbicides (they are intentionally designed that way to sell the pesticides/herbicides despite the fact that insects and weeds become resistant to these toxins after a while).

GMO’s health hazards are significant but since they would be unlabeled in food under Codex Alimentarius, there would be no way to know which foods contain GMOs and which do not.

Mandating Irradiated Food

Codex Alimentarius mandates the irradiation of food (yes, makes it obligatory!) unless it is eaten locally and raw. Irradiation of food creates high concentrations of free radicals which cause cancer, degenerative diseases, premature aging, organ damage and immune damage. The only protection that we have against irradiation of food is antioxidants. But protective levels of these vital nutrients would be forbidden under Codex.

Planning to Eliminate Access to Herbal Remedies

Codex Alimentarius can be expected to forbid traditional herbal medicines. Herbs were abruptly removed from Codex’s control when significant delegate opposition developed against eliminating all traditional medical systems and practices. Herbs were moved to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) domain where they are being considered in a committee closed to public scrutiny. It is expected that shortly before the global implementation of Codex on December 31, 2009, WHO will return them to Codex which will declare herbs to be “untested drugs” and, hence, illegal substances.

This would leave more than 60% of the world’s population without any legal medical care of any kind.

The European Union’s “Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive” (ETHMPD) has issued a short list of permitted conditions for herbal treatment. According this this draconian directive, all other indications are illegal.

While ETHMPD is not Codex Alimentarius, it is “Codex friendly” and there are interpersonal ties between the organizations. We can expect similar restrictions by Codex. Under the ETHMPD, all conditions which are “allowed” to be treated herbally are trivial and self-correcting, and would not require the use of herbs anyway.

The ETHMPD has also created a short “Positive List” of permitted herbs and is currently accepting applications for consideration of other herbs based on toxicology data which, in most cases, do not exist. Even if toxicology data on herbs did exist, they would probably be highly skewed, because toxicology is not the appropriate science for assessing herbs.

Increasing Pollution

At the same time as Codex Alimentarius unscientifically considers nutrients to be dangerous toxic chemicals and seeks to limit nutrients to clinically ineffective doses, it permits veterinary drugs, hormones, herbicides, pesticides and other toxins at irrationally high, and very dangerous levels. This hypocrisy (treating nutrients as toxins and toxins as safe) can only lead to more toxic material in the Earth’s soil, groundwater, and atmosphere.

Pesticides and other agricultural toxins like antibiotics and hormones are well known to produce great harm to human health. They lead to cancer, auto immune disease, ALS, Alzheimers and a host of other serious, life-threatening conditions.

Codex Alimentarius mandates the use of antibiotics and hormones in animals used for food, as if though these toxic substances are essential (they are not). This would pollute rivers and groundwater, as well as result in diseased meats, fish and fowl in the food chain.

As The Meatrix so fascinatingly demonstrates, instead of increasing their use, the wise would eliminate antibiotics, veterinary drugs and hormones in animals. Codex Alimentarius has nothing to do with wisdom or health. It exists to serve the interests of those who profit from the sale of antibiotics, herbicides, pesticides, veterinary drugs and hormones.

Let Us Unite and Take Action

In short, unless massive numbers of Americans take action, DSHEA will be gutted and Congress will allows Codex to become our standard in the U.S. If that happens, we face consequences such as the following:

* Elimination of nutritional medicine using therapeutic levels of nutrients to promote health and deal with illness

* Elimination of clean, unadulterated foods which are crucial for health and optimal well-being

* Elimination of herbal medicine and treatment

* More pesticides

* More hormones in meat and milk

* More antiobiotics in meat and milk

* More animal suffering

* More human suffering

* Further environmental destruction of our one planet

How Codex Alimentarius Promotes Dangerous GMOs

If the U.S. has its way, and it usually does when it comes to Codex Alimentarius, GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) will be promoted by making their labeling unnecessary, even though there is significant scientific evidence to warrant a moratorium on the widespread use of GMOs. Severe health problems are already evident with the use of GMOs. Incidentally, the U.S. is the only country in the world where unlabeled use of GMOs is permitted.

Consider this alarming statement:

“Some genetically-manipulated crops are changed so that they produce their own high levels of pesticides. For example, genetically-manipulated ‘Bt’ crops have been shown to emit very high levels of toxins.”

This statement is from a study about plants that have been genetically manipulated to produce Bt toxin, a bacterial toxin used as pesticide in GMO crops. Such genetically modified plants result in at least 1000 times more Bt toxin per acre than a heavy application of Bt sprayed directly on the plants does. Consumption of plants with the “Bt gene” (such as non-organic corn and corn-based sweeteners) may lead to serious health problems after long-term ingestion. High concentrations of Bt are also toxic to beneficial insects and, through them, birds and the rest of the ecosystem suffer.

Other hazards related to crops manipulated to produce their own pesticides are discussed in more detail by Dr. Joseph Cummins, Professor of Genetics, in “Plant-Pesticides in GE-food: A Potential Health Risk”. Even if the genetically-manipulated plant does not produce its own pesticides, it has been shown conclusively in scientific research that the herbicides used on some of these non-organic, genetically-manipulated plants (e.g., soy, canola, corn) are extremely toxic and can cause birth defects. The genetic manipulations themselves produce toxins and lead to serious health hazards when consumed over time, including birth defects, intestinal lesions and other major health challenges.

GMOs Harm American Exports

American food exports are viewed with suspicion by countries leery of GMO foods. In order to overcome this, the U.S. is demanding global unlabeled use of GMOs such as the current unlabeled use of GMOs in the U.S. If Codex yeilds to U.S. pressure, as it usually does, dangerous GMO food will make its way around the world. Currently, many nations are resisting the U.S. on this and rejecting U.S. exports for that reason. Even countries in the midst of famine like Nigeria have rejected U.S. GMO food.

GMOs Increase Sales of Pesticides

The official line of the biotechnical industry is that GMOs “reduce reliance on pesticides”, either because they make their own pesicides (e.g., Bt toxins) or because they are resistant to pests. The reality is far different, however. Plants which are resistant to the highly toxic herbicide glyphosate (Roundup�) give farmers permission to saturate their fields with it, because the crop itself (now being genetically modified) is not impacted, while competing weeds are.

This may sound like a good idea (get the weeds instead of the crop).

But it simply means that more pesticides will be used, as the farmer doesn’t have to be careful about spraying too much lest the crop be killed. Hence, plants which produce their own pesticide would actually lead farmers to making heavier use of pesticides and herbicides!

For example, as Charles Benbook of the “Northwest Science and Environmental Policy Center” notes:

“In Alabama, another high Bt-cotton adoption state (62% acres planted), BBW insecticide applications almost doubled from 1997 to 2000. Moreover, there was a clear shift in Alabama toward very toxic, broad-spectrum materials. Similar dramatic changes have occurred in Mississippi cotton insect pest management. In the first half of the 1990s, cotton farmers made eight to nine applications per acre targeting the BBW complex, with the highly-toxic OP methyl parathion accounting for over 40% of acre-treatments and pounds applied.”

Forced-GMO Farming Already Reality in Iraq

Farmers in Iraq, as an example of what a Codex-food future would look like in America, must purchase their seeds from Monsanto� and are forbidden from retaining seed crops under the new Iraqi patent laws. If farmers retain seeds from their own farm, they face heavy fines. And they are forced to use pesticide products sold to them by American corporations (such as Roundup� by Monsanto�).

GMOs Create Dangerous New Weeds

Many GMOs have been genetically engineered so that seeds will not germinate without the use of specific pesticides and herbicides. This means that specific pesticides and herbicides must be bought before the seeds will germinate. Mounting scientific evidence makes it clear that birth defects, chemical sensitivity, chronic fatigue syndrome, asthma, severe allergies and a host of other conditions may be either enhanced or caused by increased pesticide exposure (which these crops and the surrounding fields require).

GMOs themselves are far from scientifically established as safe for either the planet or its people by objective, non-industry scientists.

Genetic drift, the wind-borne spread of GMO genetic material, is recognized as a major threat to the biological integrity of the entire earth. In fact, the creation of “superweeds” as a result of cross-pollination with GMO crops has now been confirmed in the UK, Canada and elsewhere.

Because of its support for unlabelled GMO products, Codex Alimentarius would make it more lucrative to use GMOs in foods, and thus, increase the spread of GMOs through uncontrolled genetic drift of altered DNA via pollen and wind.

GMOs Not Tested For Human Safety Before Release

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are quickly and easily released into the food supply.

Biotechnology manufacturers work in voluntary consultation with the FDA, USDA, or EPA, depending on the type of product being developed, to test the safety of new genetically modified products (Cockburn, 2002).

The concept of “Substantial Equivalence” is used to determine if there are any apparent differences between the genetically modified crop and its traditional counterpart, which is generally regarded as safe. Any differences identified are then tested by the developer using a variety of in vitro (test tube) and in vivo (animal) studies to evaluate their safety. Once the manufacturer has completed the consultation process with the government agency the product is considered safe for consumption and approved for the market. Although regulators do monitor for GMOs that are not approved for human consumption, no exposure limits are set by regulators and no attempts are made to monitor post market consumer exposures.

No clinical testing is required before GMOs are released for human use.

Codex Alimentarius says “let’s make the world even more GMO friendly”.

FrankenScience: Human Liver Genes in Rice

If unlabeled use of GMOs is ratified by Codex Alimentarius, the entire world will have the same unsafe food conditions that we do here in the U.S.. Since GMOs don’t have to be labeled in the U.S. you might be eating rice with a human liver gene stuck in it, or perhaps a medication with your food (”Medical Milk” or vaccine gene). These are some of the grizzly things genetic engineering is doing to our food.

Who wants to eat a drug or a human liver enzyme with their rice?

Genetically Modified Organisms are sometimes called “Frankenfoods”. Eating them exposes people to long and short term health hazards like allergic reactions (including death) and auto-immune diseases . There have also been reports of gradual organ damage and immune system damage while the highly virulent virus used in the genetic manipulation “may recombine with latent or infecting viruses within the host or beyond and give rise to new super-viruses”.

Biotechnology Industry Has Close Ties to Codex

One of the industries that has close ties to Codex Alimentarius is the biotechnology industry. This sheds light on why Codex Alimentarius is poised to allow GMOs to be added to our foods without labelling, with disregard for the overwhelming scientific evidence pointing to the dangers of unleashing this immature technology upon the world.

How Codex Alimentarius Promotes Pesticides

Instead of encouraging a move toward a sustainable, sane, economically viable, toxin-free, organic agricultural system, Codex Alimentarius says, in effect:

“Put more pesticides on crops along with more antibiotics in food animals. When you get sick from all the toxins you ingest, I won’t let you use nutrients to detoxify - I will force you to treat the symptoms of your pesticide-induced diseases with pharmaceutical drugs.”

Codex Alimentarius allows high levels of 7 of the 9 most toxic pesticides in the world, in our food. These compounds are so toxic that the Stockholm Convention (PDF) was created to eliminate them from the planet. Codex, however, allows them in your food along with 206 other toxic pesticides. The levels allowed are nothing short of disgraceful.

Hamster Wheel of Pesticide Intake & Pharmaceutical Drug Usage

Codex Alimentarius promotes a loop of pesticide intake and pharmaceutical drug usage. This will create and maintain a perpetual state of disease among the population since both pesticides and drugs are highly toxic to the liver, our primary organ of detoxification. And both poison enzyme systems which are essential to life. Such poisoning of organ and enzyme systems leads to side effects and illness.

If this pesticide-pharma connection sounds far-fetched, if you do not believe any corporation could ever plan for such a continuum of disease, then think again. It is well-known that drug companies fabricate illnesses for the sake of drug sales. Take the example of the “fabrication” of mental illness:

“Despite a nearly 500 percent increase in mental health drugs being prescribed to children in the previous six years, the NFC [New Freedom Commission on Mental Health] recommended a plan of mandatory mental health screening for all public school students and follow-up treatment with drugs when needed.

“The fact is, this is nothing more than another elaborate profiteering scheme hatched by Bush and the pharmaceutical industry to convert the millions of people in public systems into customers for new psychiatric drugs in order to funnel more tax dollars to Pharma.”

- Evelyn J. Pringle, Online Journal, March 28, 2005

And the same is sadly true for a host of profitable diseases “treated” with lots of poisonous drugs which have, I believe, virtually no place at all in dealing which health promotion, disease prevention or treatment of any chronic, degenerative condition.

The more pesticides we have in our bodies, the more ill we are. The more ill we are, the more drugs we will buy.

Codex Means More Pesticides on Crops, More Antibiotics and Hormones for Animals

Codex Alimentarius allows pesticides, veterinary drugs and other toxic residues in foods at levels much higher than even industry lobbyists have asked for!

In speaking only of current pesticide levels (Codex levels would be much higher), the Ontario College of Family Physicians noted:

“The Committee on Pesticides in the Diet of Infants and Children (CPDIC) concluded that the *population is at great risk from the existing allowable levels of pesticide residues* [Emphasis mine] and that the data strongly suggest that *exposure to these neurotoxic compounds at levels believed to be safe for adults could result in permanent loss of brain function* when it occurs during prenatal and early childhood periods of brain development. [20] Toxicologists agree that by extrapolation from hazard assessment studies conducted primarily in rodents, pesticides have the potential to produce toxicity in humans, a potential that includes many different toxic end points. Recent studies have investigated non-occupational human exposure, such as those presented by Leiss et al, who demonstrated an association between yard treatments and soft tissue sarcomas (odds ratio 4.0) and the use of pest strips and leukemias (OR 1.7-3.0) in children [21] . Similar findings have been reported by Gold et al, who report an association between exposure to insecticide extermination and brain tumors (OR 2.3) [22] ; Lowengart et al, who report an association between household pesticides and leukemia (OR 4.0) and garden pesticides and leukemia (OR 5.6) [23] and most recently Davis et al, who found odds ratios up to 6.2 for several pesticide specific exposures among children with brain cancer”.

How much worse will things get when astonishingly high Codex-approved toxic residues are permitted in our food supply?

And why does Codex Alimentarius allow pesticide levels higher than current industry levels? Because the more pesticides are sold, the more profit will those who sell it make.

Codex: Friend To Toxins Well Beyond Pesticides

Codex Alimentarius wouldn’t just give free reign to pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics in food. It also allows aflatoxin, a potent carcinogen in milk, peanuts, almonds and other foods. It seems that Codex Alimentarius has been designed to open the gates for everything that is toxic to humanity and the Earth, while closing the door to everything that is natural and nutritious.

Consider just one example out of thousands: Aflatoxin is the second most potent non-radiation carcinogen (cancer-inducing agent) known to man. Based on trade considerations, not health, Codex sets an astonishingly high level for aflatoxin in milk: 0.5 mg/kg.

This is at least 100 times the recommended standard!

The official Codex documentation has this to say about aflatoxins (note how narrowly focused on trade considerations this paragraph is):

“The imposition of a maximum level less than 0.5 mg/kg would restrict international trade of feed ingredients because the level of aflatoxins in the feed would need to be controlled to lower levels than currently used in order to assure that the milk meet the lower standard. This issue is further complicated by the fact that the animals for which the feed components will be used are not known at the time of international shipments. Therefore, the milk level may result indirectly in an unwritten lower limit for aflatoxins in feed ingredients for all animals, even though animal feed is a good use of the more aflatoxin contaminated ingredients for many animal species.”

What does that mean? It means that according to the people behind Codex Alimentarius, it would be a burden on trade to reduce levels of aflatoxins in food, and that current levels are too strict. Remember, this is the second most potent known carcinogen we are talking about!

Codex Encourages Increase of Carcinogens

For those who care about reducing cancer in the world, reducing levels of aflatoxins should be a high priority. But why bother about reducing cancer, if permitting unsafe levels of aflatoxin can reduce sanitation expenses and thus increase profits? It goes even further than just milk. Codex Alimentarius says that it is ok to give material contaminated with aflatoxins to animals!

Aflatoxin is known to pass into milk and meat. So, just for a moment, forget about the health of the animals, and ask yourself, what will happen to the people who drink the milk or eat the meat of animals fed with aflatoxin contaminated feed?

Who benefits from toxic feed? The chemical-agricultural industry, which saves money by not having to discard poisoned feed as allowed by Codex Alimentarius.

Codex Alimentarius Would Violate Liberty

The concept of liberty as an inalienable right of the individual is a critical component to the strength of a truly free nation. America was founded upon the ideal of the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as the spiritual gifts granted to men and women by right of birth, not by any human institution. These rights were considered by our Founding Fathers as something governments have absolutely no authority or right to give or take away.

Founding Fathers Warned About Usurpation of Health Freedom

America’s Founding Fathers, and many liberty-minded men and women after them, dedicated their lives to ensure that the concept of the inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness would continue as sacred maxims in the mass-consciousness of our nation. This was done so that we, the People, would value and uphold these rights as supreme and protect them. And living more fulfilling lives as a result.

And then Codex Alimentarius comes along in our lifetime, seeking to forcefully regulate our health choices, and trying to do exactly what Jefferson warned us about when he said “if people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.”

Liberty Means We Have Freedom of Choice Over Our Own Bodies

Freedom of choice and freedom from coercion are two base-pillars of liberty. Codex Alimentarius violates our freedom of choice about clean, unadulterated food and imposes coercive measures upon our lives about the health choices we can make.

For example, is your right to choose non-toxic food upheld when organic food standards are desecrated by Codex Alimentarius and all animals must be treated with toxic chemicals and drugs before you can eat them?

Is your right to choose food free of genetic engineering upheld when GMOs are used without labeling?

Is your right to choose effective nutritional supplements to support the individual biochemistry of your body protected when high potency, clinically effective natural health products are eliminated from the market?

The above questions are related to freedom of choice and liberty, which is granted as our birth right, not by the state. Since liberty is ours by birth, it cannot be removed unless we let it be taken away through inaction and passivity.

How Codex Violates Liberty as Defined by Dictionary

Let us, using the dictionary definition of the word “liberty”, explain how Codex would violate liberty.
First, here’s the definition:

lib-er-ty

n. pl. lib-er-ties

1.
1. The condition of being free from restriction or control.
2. The right and power to act, believe, or express oneself in a manner of one’s own choosing.
3. The condition of being physically and legally free from confinement, servitude, or forced labor.

See Synonyms at freedom.

2. Freedom from unjust or undue governmental control.

3. A right or immunity to engage in certain actions without control or interference: the liberties protected by the Bill of Rights.

Codex Violates “The condition of being free from restriction or control”

With every bite of our food, nutrients and herbs controlled from “seed to supper”, from “fork to farm”, and with the decisions on how that takes place made by people for whom greed, not health, is the deciding factor, Codex takes us far, far away from “The condition of being free from restriction or control.” Instead, every morsel of food will be the product of control exerted by massive multi-national corporate entities.

Codex Violates “The right and power to act, believe, or express oneself in a manner of one’s own choosing”

Would you like to buy (or raise) beef from grass fed cattle never treated with hormones or antibiotics? If we let Codex Alimentarius control that herd, that option could be gone. Codex would control how the beef you buy could and could not be raised. Codex mandates the use of hormones and antibiotics which would make your beef unsuitable for healthy eating.

Well, how about astragalus (an herb used for immune enhancement for cancer, HIV/AIDS, etc.) and 3 grams of Vitamin C to strengthen a compromised immune system?

Under Codex, you can only use low-dose supplements without therapeutic benefit, and the drugs of pharmaceutical companies and. These are the substances that kill 106,000 per year when properly prescribed (and about 204,000 Americans per year if you add in “medical misadventure” or improperly prescribed drugs).

Codex Violates “The condition of being physically and legally free from confinement, servitude, or forced labor”

Are you free from servitude when you foodr is laced with chemical and you cannot legally purchase clean food due to degraded organic standards?

Are you free from servitude when you are forbidden to seek and receive medical care which is not based in drugs or surgery?

Are you a free man or woman, able to make and express your own decisions about your health and those whom you love when the most inexpensive and powerful tools mankind has for health and well being - namely clean food, herbs and nutrients to nourish and heal the body - are denied to you because you are not powerful or rich enough to be in the driver’s seat of this careening buggy being recklessly driven (by greed need and control need), over a health cliff?

You might still be a free man or woman regardless of Codex, but you would have to grow your own food and create your own supplements. You would have no free market to exercise your freedom of choice in. Because you would have all your health choices taken away by Codex Alimentarius.

Codex Violates “Freedom from unjust or undue governmental control”

Clearly, poisoning of food and forbidding all therapeutic nutritional supplements as Codex is poised to do, is tantamount to unjust and undue governmental control.

The Congressional delegates who allow such a thing to happen are acting on behalf of their own best interest, including the $758 million dollars spent by the Drug industry to lobby Congress last year alone.

The U.S. Government must be reminded of who they serve. Their real task is to serve us, the People, and not the multi-national corporate sponsors of Codex Alimentarius.

Codex Violates “A right or immunity to engage in certain actions without control or interference: the liberties protected by the Bill of Rights”

All the above violations would take away liberties which are protected by the Bill of Rights. Codex Alimentarius would, indeed, violate the Bill of Rights.

Join us and take action on Codex Alimentarius.

We Stand For NO SYSTEM

Kindom (Do No Harm Communities) is the dream for freedom, but it is the dream for the freedom of those around us who also live the dream of freedom, because it is in living for the freedom of others that we get our freedom. When we live for the dreams of Kindom of those around us, we live life as a gift because we live for (dedicate our lives to) their dream of freedom, truth, peace, joy, abundance, etc, just as they live for our Kindom dreams too. This is true co-creation (cooperation) with no attack on the uniqueness of each of us. When we live this way, we have no need for any man-made system - everything/everyone has already been taken care of by our love for life.

Just as we do not have to jump 10 feet across the room to grab our next breath, neither do we have to worry about food, water and shelter because it has all been taken care of as we each co-create Kindoms/Kin-Domains for everyone. Now everybody and everything of the dream of life that is Kindom/Paradise is free (has been set free once again). The issue is greed and selfishness, power and control trips, arrogance, ignorance, being fed many many lies and being traumatised. The issue is not overpopulation - there is more than enough land available for every family to have a hectare (2.5 acres Kin-Domain) to care for. The land of Australia can provide a Kin-Domain for every family across Earth, each with a food forest, clean fresh drinking water and plenty of space for building natural do no harm habitats and with plenty of land left over.

Everyone must have the freedom to take full-responsibility for their lives, for the water they drink, the food they eat and for their shelter. Currently, "The System" forces everyone to give up taking full-responsibility so that we become grown up children accustomed to sucking on the nipples of "The System" corporations for everything, having to use money to get by and to follow the rules of money because we are not co-creating freedom, peace, truth, joy and abundance for each other. Money only leads to haves and have nots and all the abuse, manipulation and distractions that we are subjected to as slaves to money.

When we give up living for other's Kindom dreams, we start creating hell ("The System") all around us because we become self-centred - now it's all about "my freedom","my money", "my land", "my belief", "my saviour", "mine", "mine","mine", "i","i", "i", "own", "own", "own", etc. To protect what we claim we own requires a man-made system with FORCE to protect those self-centred claims. This is ALL trauma based and all story-telling (brainwashing/braindirtying).

NO SYSTEM = KINDOM/DO NO HARM COMMUNITIES
NO SYSTEM = KINDOM/DO NO HARM COMMUNITIES photo Kindom_zpsa6d24e8a.jpg

Our true freedom comes when we set our thoughts of freedom into motion so that we live freedom rather than just talking and thinking about it while we still slave for "The System". Kindom will not happen while we meditate for hours in the bush or do yoga retreats or wait for Jesus or follow the processes of the OPPT (One People's Public Trust now called One People). This is not freedom because we are not living freedom because we are living the story-telling of Jesus or Zeitgeist or The Secret or Thrive or One Earth/Consciousness/People.

Living Kindom is very, very hard work as we set about repairing the damage to MAN/Earth/Nature that we are ALL responsible for but the burden becomes lighter the more of us put our life-energy into the dream of returning Earth to Paradise. Day-after-day, we all have to work our arses off until Kindom is all around us (MAN) once again. This is the price we pay to set each other free on a piece of land (Kin-Domain), so that no one is under the image-power (education/brainwashing/story-telling) of another MAN anymore and so that everyone can have their space of love to create and live their unique, do no harm dreams. This only happens once we have the Kindoms set up so that everyone is provided for.

Once we re-create the food forests, whether on land or in the suburbs, we can re-claim our freedom, breaking the strangle-hold of "The System" because we are no longer reliant on its services and benefits and no longer turning each other into slaves of "The System", cogs in the wheels of "The System" machine. If we don't put the effort in to set everyone and everything free all around us then we still live in HELL ("The System"). The key is to live for everyone else's freedom so that we can have it too.

A Collection Of Various Love For Life Posts
Providing The Big Picture We See

Sequential Order

We ask you to NOT believe anything we say/share and instead use scrutiny like an intense blow torch and go where the logic of truth/sense takes you. This is very, very important. Put everything you believe up to the test of scrutiny to see how it stacks up. If you are true to your heart/senses and go where the logic of truth/sense takes you will find that NO belief, etc, will stand up to the test of scrutiny. They just do not stack up because they are lies/fraud.

After you have watched and read all the material and any questions are left unanswered, send us your landline number and we will use the internet phone as a free unlimited call. We are on Sydney NSW Australia time. Best times for us to chat are between 11.00am and 6.00pm.

It is critical that you fully comprehend Image Power, "Spelling", Trauma, Reaction To Trauma, Curses, Processing Curses, Full-Responsibility/Liability, Limited Liability/Responsibility (passing-the-back), Slavery, Senses/Sense vs Non-Sense/Senses, Re-Presenting Intellectual Property such as but not limited to "Name", Storytelling/Storytellers, Duality, Black-Magic, Belief, Lies, "i", All Seeing "i" (eye), etc..... These themes and others are covered over and over and over again.

If you do not comprehend these insights and are unable to use your senses to sense your way through all the non-sense/non-sensory-images that enslave MAN under their image power (darkness = "The System" = Hell), men and women will remain deeply trapped under a terrible state of trauma. Our intention is to inspire you to remedy by showing you how to move away from reacting to trauma in all its nefarious and devious forms.

Peaceful Transition Through Sacrifice And Service

We feel there is an essential peaceful do no harm transition required to get all of MAN back to standing on MANS feet without reliance upon another MAN for water, food, shelter. As it stands everyone in "The System" are highly dependent and reliant on the "group mind-set" that forms "The System" of slaves providing services and benefits for the emotionally addicted slaves to "The System" (and you can put us in the same basket too). The transition is to get MAN back to relying ONLY on nature without 3rd party interlopers, intermeddlers, interceders getting in the way. The transition is a team effort with the foresight for setting all of MAN free down-the-line so that MAN is no longer dependent on slaves and masters providing services, benefits, privileges and exclusivity while being bound to contracts, rituals, procedures, conditions, rules & regulations which compromises MAN severely.

This transition is all about shifting from limited liability/responsibility to full liability/responsibility. This full responsibility is all about caring for our health, nature all around us, clean uncorrupted (pure) water and food, partner/co-creator, children, shelter, animal-friends in partnership, etc. In "The System", we are already together destroying each other - we have to come together to create peace together so that we can all have peace. We cannot live peacefully when we are islands, not taking full responsibility for the lives of those around us until EVERYONE can take full responsibility for their life, which means that EVERYONE is healed of system trauma. In "The System", we all come together to make slaves of each other - now is the moment to come together to set each other free, to live for each other's freedom, peace, joy and abundance. Once we have set each other free, we are free.

Control The Land
And You Control MAN On The Land
Displace MAN From Land
And You Turn MAN Into Slaves

The Cristian Family November 2006

The Cristian Family Declaration

The Cristian family and The Love for Life Campaign are apolitical, non-religious, non-violent, anti weapons, anti drugs (both pharmaceutical and recreational) and anti any ideology that denies the existence of Do No Harm Communities (Kindoms) and suppresses the uniqueness and freedom of all men, women and children.

The Cristian family and our Love For Life work is unaligned to any big business corporation, intelligence agency, government body, "system" law, "system" think tanks, "system" green or environmental movements, religion, cult, sect, society (fraternity, brotherhood, sisterhood, order, club, etc,) secret or not, hidden agenda, law or sovereignty group, occult, esoteric, New Age or Old Age.

The Cristian family supports and promotes the remedy that brings an everlasting peace, freedom, truth, joy, abundance and do no harm for all of life without causing loss of uniqueness or the need for having slaves and rulers. We are not into following the one in front or being shepherds for sheeple. Most importantly, we take full-responsibility for everything we think, feel and do.

The Cristian family are not Christians.

The Cristian Family November 2006

THE CRISTIAN FAMILY PLEDGE

Being of clear brain, heart and intention, we each declare the following to be true:

• We have no intention of ending our own lives.

• We will not tolerate suppression of truth, ideas, freedom, or our work. We stand for freedom of speech.

• We stand together to support others in the expression of truths and freedom to speak out no matter how radical those ideas may seem.

• Standing for freedom takes courage; together we shall be strong in the face of all odds.

• If it is ever claimed that we have committed suicide, encountered an unfortunate accident, died of sickness/disease, disappeared, been institutionalized, or sold out financially or in any other way to self-interested factions, we declare those claims false and fabricated.

• We testify, assert and affirm without reservation, on behalf of all those who have dedicated their lives to the ending of secrecy and the promotion of freedom of thought, ideas and expression that we shall prevail.

• We Do Not Have Multiple Personality Disorders

Update Regarding The Love For Life
Home Page And Quick User Guide

We are turning the Love for Life Quick User Guide http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608 into a blog of all the main insights of our work since March 2005, whether through articles, videos, podcasts or discussions/debates.

As we do not have the time to compile everything we have written into a book, as many have suggested we do, compiling all our most important work into one area of the website is a way of providing easy access to this work so those interested are able to fully comprehend the big picture.

Instead of having to find our different articles, videos, etc, in various parts of the website, it will all be accessible here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608 and here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/3385.

Love For Life Videos

As amateurs and posted in the Quick User Guide below the Facebook links, we're currently creating and posting a series of videos called "The Dream Of Life" which covers the ground of all the Love For Life insights. We plan to have the videos completed by December 31st 2012. Once this is behind us, our intention is to create a 2 hour or so video covering the body of this work. All videos are embedded in the quick user guide http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608 and uploaded in Arthur's YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/ArthurLoveForLife.

Love For Life Music

We have started recording songs, with others, that express the themes of Love For Life. They are now being posted on Arthur's YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/ArthurLoveForLife and are embedded in the quick user guide http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608. We have over 100 songs to record. A few rough demos have already been used as the soundtrack on the first "Dream of Life" video.

About Us - Love For Life & The Cristian Family

Also, everything we, the Cristian family, have gone through, from bank fraud and the theft of the family home to death threats and attempts on Arthur's life, is documented in the Quick User Guide too. If you, the reader, are prepared to put the effort in, you will comprehend the extent to which we have all been tricked into becoming slaves, giving up our uniqueness and our full-responsibility for life and destroying everything of life to the point where life is in danger of dying out completely. You will also comprehend the remedy to all this chaos; a remedy that requires only love for life and the determination to do what needs to be done. Though our focus is very strongly on the remedy that creates a world of freedom, truth, peace, joy, abundance and Do No Harm for all of life without loss of uniqueness or the need for slaves and rulers, we realise that it is vital to comprehend how to get there and what stops us from getting there. This is why there is so much information on the hows and whys of everything going wrong in the world today. We are not into peddling conspiracy theories, we are into routing out all forms of organised crime.

THE CRISTIAN FAMILY SUPPORTS
FREEDOM OF SPEECH - FREEDOM OF THOUGHT

The Cristian Family November 2006

Posted Wednesday 17th June 2009
Updated September 2011

NSW Jewish Board Of Deputies
Has Threatened To Shut Down
The Love For Life Website

No Freedom Of Speech - No Freedom Of Thought

Love For Life does not support harm doing in any shape or form. However, we are supporters of free speech and post articles, documentaries, etc, that represent a wide cross section of ideas. See the Love For Life extensive research library where over 6000 documents, articles and videos are posted: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/82. We clearly see the evidence of the destruction to MAN and the earth that has been caused by ALL religions over the centuries and are therefore not supporters of religions, cults, sects or any group that demands conformity of thought, speech or action, or has rules, regulations or rituals that must be followed. Religions, nationalities and cultural "identities" are formed as a result of the brainwashing we receive from childhood. They are part of the tactics the Establishment uses to keep us all divided from one another and fighting one another.

All religions promote discrimination and division, leading to hatred and even violence and murder. None of them have yet to produce a remedy to all the suffering, poverty, unhappiness and discrimination in the world. If any religion truly had the remedy to all the suffering on earth, there would no longer be any suffering. What have Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, atheism and the New Age done to end the suffering in the world?

Since December 2006, there have been many attempts to take down the Love For Life website. Any attempts have been thwarted by Love For Life supporters inundating the harm-doers with emails, etc, objecting to them taking down the website for a variety of reasons. The trouble makers usually back off when they realise that they can post all their views, arguments, beliefs, etc, in the Love For Life website without censorship or restriction imposed. They get to see that even the Queen, Pope, Prime Minister, President of America, etc, can post all their views without hindrance or sabotage and that we support freedom of speech/thought which means we support the right of all sides to express their views.

Of note, there is a vast amount of information posted in the Love For Life website which we do not agree with but we leave it all up because we refuse to be biased, opinionated or self-centered/self-serving. Of the many thousands of comments posted over the years we have only removed posts containing secret links to commercial advertisements, terrible foul language, threats of violence and death, etc, and attacks on other people's characters that avoid the subject/debate at hand. Besides links to advertisements, we have taken down less than six comments due to the above. We usually leave everything up, all warts and all, even those posts threatening to do terrible things to Fiona, our children, our dogs, our friends, family & supporters, etc.

The Love For Life website has information from all sides on many subjects, whether about Islam, Judaism, Christianity, Law, health, psychology, mind control, vaccination, aspartame, MSG, Chemtrails etc. There are over 11,000 articles, documentaries etc on the website and they are so diverse that we are sure that everyone would be able to find something they loved and something they hated, if they took the time to search. If we removed all the articles hated by everyone, there would probably be nothing left! We are not anti anyone but freedom of speech is freedom of speech and no one should condemn the work of another without taking the time to research the subject themselves. Yes, there are articles by those who have a less-than-rosy-viewpoint of Judaism, but there are also articles on the dark side of Tibetan Buddhism (and it is very dark) for those who are interested in the truth: Tibet - Buddhism - Dalai Lama: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6271 Should the authors of these articles be abused and imprisoned for daring to challenge the widely conceived reputation of Buddhism as being the religion of peace and love and that of the Dalai Lama as a saint, or should those interested be allowed to study the work and come to their own conclusions? The same applies to all the articles, documentaries, etc, about Christianity, Islam, Freemasonry, New World Order, etc.

The Love for Life website also shows how the Rule of Law, the Bar, the Government, the Monarchy, the system of commerce, the local, national and multi/trans-national private corporations, all the courses and careers on offer from our universities, all the educators, scientists, academics and experts, the aristocrats and the Establishment bloodlines have also done NOTHING to end the suffering in the world. The website maps the insanity of a world where there is no help for those in need, just as there was no help available for us when we were victims of terrible bank fraud: "NSW Supreme Court Case - Macquarie Bank/Perpetual Limited vs Fiona Cristian - Victims Of Bank Fraud Condoned By Judges" http://loveforlife.com.au/node/5 (orchestrated, condoned and protected by an international crime syndicate/terrorist organisation of judges, barristers, registrars, lawyers, politicians, banksters, big business representatives, media moguls and other lackeys who, all together, put up a wall of silence despite our trying many, many avenues. After the family home was stolen and business destroyed we were left close to poverty and destitution caring for 4 young daughters. Three years later not much has changed regardless of all our efforts. Where were all the followers of all the religions to help us? Or do we have to be members of those religions to receive help from others involved in them?

The New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies accused us of being anti - Jewish, see: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6616 and http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6665 because we had posted an excerpt from James von Brun's book: Kill the Best Gentiles: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6054 in which he blames Jews for the problems of the world. Obviously this is not our view because of what we have stated above. We do not hate anyone, whatever religion they follow. We are always open to talk to any religious leader or politician and meet with any judge, member of the Bar, experts, academics, educators etc to share the remedy we offer that heals all the divisions between MAN and MAN, and MAN and the EARTH.

Today, a representative of the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies is threatening to close the website down, because they have decided it is anti - Jewish and that we promote racism. What has the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies done to end the suffering in the world? Can they show that they are concerned with the suffering of ALL men, women and children AND ARE SEEN TO BE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT or are they only concerned with Jewish affairs? If so, they, along with all the other religions that only care for their own, are part of the problem, not part of the solution. The man who rang Arthur today was only concerned with Jewish affairs; he was not interested in our intentions or in anybody else, just as most Christians, Muslims, Sikhs, Catholics, etc, are only interested in their own. While we separate ourselves into groups, dividing ourselves from others with rules, regulations, rituals, procedures and conditions, we will never solve our problems.

No matter what we in the Western World Civilisation of Commerce have been promised by our politicians, religious leaders, scientists, educators, philosophers, etc, for the past two hundred years, all we have seen is ever-increasing destruction of men, women and children and the earth. None of the so-called experts and leaders we have been taught to rely on are coming up with a solution and none of them are taking full-responsibility for the fact that they can't handle the problem. All religious books talk about end times full of destruction and suffering but why do we have to follow this program when there is an alternative to hatred, mayhem and death? Why are our leaders following the program of destruction and death rather than exploring the alternatives? It seems that any mainstream politician, priest or academic are only interested in supporting the RULES OF THE DIVIDE, that maintain the haves and the have nots. For 200+ years, 99% of the world population have been so trained to pass on their responsibility for themselves, others and the earth, that the 1% of the population that make up the leaders of the rest of us are making all the decisions leading to the destruction of all of us and the earth. Let's not forget the education system that brainwashes the 99% of the population that we are free and have equal rights while, in fact, we are feathering the nests of those at the top.

At the root of all our problems is self-centredness, an unwillingness nurtured by the Establishment that keeps us concerned only with our own needs rather than the needs of others around us and the Earth. Instead of creating and releasing acts of love for those around us as gifts to benefit them and the earth, we take, take and take, until there is nothing left. The whole point of the Love for Life website is to show people the root of all our problems and to share the remedy. The extensive research library is there to attract browsers and to provide access to information not available through mainstream channels. If the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies can, after careful examination of our work, prove that anything we are saying is wrong, we will be happy to accept their proof. If they cannot, and they are still insistent on closing the website down, they will be showing themselves to be traitors to MAN because they are not interested in pursuing any avenue that can end the suffering in the world.

All religions, corporations and organisations that support and maintain the Western World Civilisation of Commerce are part of the problem because our civilisation is a world of haves and have nots, racism, violence, hatred, poverty, sickness, discrimination, abuse, starvation, homelessness, corruption, collusion, vindictiveness, social unrest, arrogance, ignorance, fear, war and chaos. While we support civilisation, we support death and destruction because ALL civilisations that have ever existed are apocalyptic by design.

If we truly want peace on earth and freedom for all, we have to let go of all that which keeps us divided, and come together as MAN, conscious living co-creators of creation. The Love For Life website offers a remedy to the problems we all face in the form of DO NO HARM COMMUNITIES: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/3641 For more details see here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6511 and here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/3385 - We also highly recommend that everyone read the brilliant Russian books called The Ringing Cedars: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/1125 - The Love For Life Website Homepage also provides lots of inspiring remedy based information: http://loveforlife.com.au - If you want to be kept up to date with our work please register to the Love For Life Mailing List here: http://loveforlife.com.au/content/09/05/14/mailing-list. We usually send two postings per month. Presently (September 2011) there are over 7000 registrations reaching over 500,000 readers across Earth. The website now (September 2011) receives up to 12 million hits per month. Since December 2006, over 100 million people have visited the Love For Life website.

Clarification Regarding Our Intentions
Behind The Use Of Donations

The Love For Life website is offered for free without a fee and without any conditions attached. If people are inspired to donate money, then we accept their gift and have provided an avenue for them to support the work we do through Fiona's Paypal or ANZ bank account http://loveforlife.com.au/node/8515. There is no obligation whatsoever to donate and all are equally welcome to our work and to our "time", whether they donate or not. Over the last 9 years, all the Love For Life work has been put out for free and it has often been donations from supporters that have enabled us to renew the domain name, etc, to keep the website going. While some complain that we have an avenue for donations, others complained when we didn't! Either use it or don't - the choice is yours.

Since Love For Life started March 2005 and website December 2006, Arthur has worked 16 hours a day, 7 days a week unpaid for much of this period, putting together the website and sharing insights to wake people up to what has been done to them, whether through the 11,500+ individual articles, videos, podcasts, debates, discussions, pdf's, research documents, etc, found amongst the 8,500+ posts, as well as helping many, many men and women over the phone, and through email, website correspondence, Facebook and YouTube, and creating the Love For Life food forest vege garden and Love For Life music recording studio. This is our life is a gift commitment to serve MAN/Nature/Earth but we are still severely compromised by "The System" and still have to give to Caesar what is claimed to belong to Caesar, which is where the donations help us.
