ALTHOUGH LONG, PLEASE READ! Do you know any food that is stated as having health/curative benefit, in relation to a disease,
will be reclassified as a DRUG?
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, harmless, or voluntary, 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
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 - Thats 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
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.
Heres 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 todays 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
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. Lets not allow cynicism to tell us
otherwise. We did it for DSHEA in 1994. We can do it again in 2005.
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!
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 HARMonized to Codex Alimentarius, as long as we are in the WTO, we cannot amend or change what weve been
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.
