Have you ever heard of the Codex Alimentarius? If not, don't be surprised. It's one of the best-kept "open secrets" of the U.S. government. Codex Alimentarius is Latin for "food code" or "food regulations." It refers to a set of strict regulations covering all aspects of food. Modern Codex regulations are prepared by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, which works with the EU and UN in an attempt to regulate every aspect of food production, packaging, preparation, preservation, and presentation of food "from farm to fork." Codex also attempts to regulate supplemental nutrients. It even goes so far as to eliminate organic produce standards.
The World Trade Organization (WTO) has accepted the standards of the Codex, and at some point, if their plans are allowed to proceed, member countries of the WTO will be required to implement Codex "to harmonize the standards" for the global trade of foods. It may present the greatest disaster for our food supply--and thus for our health--that we have ever encountered, here and abroad.
The Codex agenda, which has long metastasized in the recesses of closed board rooms and governmental chambers, is now coming to light. This is the paramount issue of our times. If Codex standards ever replace the current laws in the U.S. governing food and dietary supplements, it will affect not just Americans' right to choose supplements, but our right to grow crops with untampered seeds, to buy pure organic food, and to live free of the tyranny of Big Agro-Chem-Pharma-Med, through health-destructive FDA rules enacted and enforced by a pro-corporate government that cares nothing about our health freedom. Now more than ever, we must exercise our democratic duty and be vigilant in protecting that freedom, the health and survival of the Earth, and all her creatures.
Codex is not just about nutritional supplements, although that is an important aspect. In fact, it is the primary political battlefield where the war is being waged about who will regulate and control the global food supply, from field and stable to table. This war is being waged by an increasingly tangled web of global governmental and international authorities, aligned with big business and financial interests, wherein human health takes a back seat to profit and power goals.
Codex will control: vitamins, minerals and nutrients; genetically modified organisms; toxic residues; antibiotics, drugs, growth stimulants, and other hormones in food animals; organic foods; and irradiation of food.
The plan is to suppress all beneficial, high-potency nutrients, and to allow only those and a few other vitamins and minerals that will be high-priced, low-dosage, and synthetically made by drug companies.
Codex regulations will be binding internationally. Any nation that has entered into trade agreements through the WTO and its adjunctive treaties will eventually be forced to adopt Codex standards.
Although American dietary supplements are currently protected somewhat by the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), its provisions are threatened by Codex and an interlocking array of emerging regional and international treaties, agreements, regulatory handshakes, and other executive arrangements that will "harmonize" our food laws to harsh standards, thereby relegating DSHEA to the dust bin of history and suppressing our health freedoms--unless we take immediate action.
Do we want to see a world where our access to safe, nutritious foods and effective dietary supplements is restricted, suppressed, and controlled by government in alliance with its pharmaceutical and chemical bedfellows? If not, we must act now, before it's too late. Contacting government bureaucrats with your complaints is largely a waste of time. Effective action takes the form of advising others and contacting your representatives in Congress. We must be persistently vocal because most politicians don't see the light; they feel the heat. Make them feel the heat.
