One of the most simple solutions: Ban in the import of any food that is grown and exported from the US.
Grains, wheats, some fruits, most vegetables, all beef, all pork, etc...
Just stop importing. We import low quality foods, export our higher quality foods, and use the low quality crap in the congealed nastiness that is our processed foods.
Simple solution. People won't get sick, dogs and cats won't die, and we can eat our processed foods with an added piece of mind.
In the summer of 2005, the Corporate Planning, Reporting and Accountability Branch of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) was requested to review CFIA's Codex activities, given the prominent role of Codex in setting the international regulatory framework for food and the contribution of CFIA to this process. Since 2002, CFIA has invested approximately $2.2 million in Codex activities including travel and attendance at Codex committee meetings, hosting, and coordination.
Based on the work conducted, the review noted that the CFIA's participation in Codex enables the development of strong, coherent science-based regulations that support CFIA corporate objectives and facilitate international trade. In addition, CFIA's participation in Codex has resulted in tangible benefits for Canada, however additional efforts could further demonstrate the benefits of CFIA's involvement.
As current Chair of the Interdepartmental Committee on Codex (IDC), should work with the other members of the Committee to prepare a more comprehensive strategic plan that reflects Canada's priorities.

Food has been scary for awhile, I have been very careful about what I eat after I found out about aspartame and msg. This just solidifies it for me, when they can't even account for the ingredients they put in the food its time to find something else to eat. With some of the artificial flavors and additives in processed food I'm not even sure I would call it food anymore.
On the plus side local food tastes better on a whole different level than most people are used too . After tasting some I would never go back and it is healthier too. I'm lucky to have a big space for a garden and am near a large CSA. People in big cities would probably have a hard time finding good food, unless they can afford to pay a lot for it.
The objective of this course is to familiarize the students with the history, development and workings of the Codex Alimentarius Commission in formulating and harmonizing food standards and ensuring their global implementation.
The most powerful German economic corporate emporium in the first half of this century was the Interessengemeinschaft Farben or IG Farben, for short. Interessengemeinschaft stands for "Association of Common Interests" and was nothing more than a powerful cartel of BASF, Bayer, Hoechst, and other German chemical and pharmaceutical companies. IG Farben was the single largest donor to the election campaign of Adolph Hitler. One year before Hitler seized power, IG Farben donated 400,000 marks to Hitler and his Nazi party. Accordingly, after Hitler's seizure of power, IG Farben was the single largest profiteer of the German conquest of the world, the Second World War.
On April 14, 1941 , in Ludwigshafen , Otto Armbrust, the IG Farben board member responsible for the Auschwitz project, stated to his IG Farben board colleagues, "our new friendship with the SS is a blessing. We have determined all measures integrating the concentration camps to benefit our company."
The pharmaceutical departments of the IG Farben cartel used the victims of the concentration camps in their own way: thousands of them died during human experiments such as the testing of new and unknown vaccines.
There was no retirement plan for the prisoners of IG Auschwitz. Those who were too weak or too sick to work were selected at the main gate of the IG Auschwitz factory and sent to the gas chambers. Even the chemical gas Zyklon-B used for the annihilation of millions of people was derived from the drawing boards and factories of IG Farben.
Just fifteen years after they were convicted in the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal, Bayer, BASF and Hoechst were again the architects of the next major human rights offences. In 1962, they established the Codex Alimentarius Commission. (Remark made by the Dr. Rath Health Foundation)...
The deceptive title "Codex Alimentarius" is no accident. It was devised by the same companies and indeed the same individuals, who gave the Auschwitz concentration camp inmates the deceptive slogan "Arbeit mach frei" ("Work makes you free"). (Remark made by the Dr. Rath Health Foundation)
