We worry about that a lot here in Europe. In my country we have a vitamin freedom web site. I would dismiss part of this worry as an exaggeration - except I am in Eastern astrology and it says we WILL all focus on these problems from 2009 September on, and that there will be a lot of conflicts. Over the purity of food, symbolic poisoning - read additives, antibiotics mandatory by Codex and last but not least GM foods.

I read in another post on ATS, that an individual in Europe (Where the Codex A has already been implemented.) had to ask a medical doctor for a prescription for vitamins, because of a health issue.
I've also briefly watched a few of the C.A. dissenter's videos on Youtube, etc., the entire idea is very creepy, and has HUGE ramifications on the life of everyone.

Thanks again. Hopefully the CA is exactly what they purport to be -- an international watchdog for food standards.

This is going to sound a bit..... ummm...... smarmy, I suppose, but I don't think they've done a great job of regulating/testing keeping contaminated foods from being exported from China. I know, I know, but dang, one or two things, sure it's a production accident. Pet food? and then the myriad of things afterward? Toys? Hard to not ponder that there's some agenda that the folks assembling these things are not aware of.

That codex stuff is scary. What's next? Are they going to prevent you from growing food in you own back yard? It would be wise to start collecting seeds as this might totally get out of hand. Your OWN food might be the only place you would be able to get nutrient rich food. Then again I might not be able to water the damn plants because they will have laws for that. Fresh water will be in short supply and I fear it will be a cause for concern for me in Canada because we have so much of it and they might be coming for it. I feel we should trade a barrel of fresh water for a barrel of crude with Saudi or some other country that has a lack of fresh water... Definitly be good for our economy.

Here is one thing that I did find ..
1615, from M.L. ailimentarius "pertaining to food," from alimentum "nourishment," from alere "to nourish, rear, support, maintain," from PIE base *al- "to grow, nourish" (see old). Aliment "nourishment" was in Eng. from 1477. ...
constellation, 1390, from L., lit. "archer," prop. "pertaining to arrows," from sagitta "arrow," which probably is from a pre-Latin Mediterranean language. Meaning "person born under Sagittarius" (prop. Sagittarian) is attested from 1940.
The tau cross is the same shape as the greek letter T , which is also called tau and was anciently considered as an emblem of life . It was held to be a sacred mark and was placed upon the foreheads of those who escaped from shipwreck , battle or other great peril of life . Tau is mentioned in Ezekiel 4:4-6 as the mark set upon the foreheads of the men who were to be preserved alive . Tau is derived from an egyptian or coptic root meaning bull or cow and the constellation anciently marking the vernal equinox ....
I will search a bit more and can only hope to find something relevant .

That is just nuts. Tons of apple trees in my area, at least that will be available. Fishing is always good food. Lots of rivers are un contaminated so there is that option... Just everything in the stores will be srewed.

Most of us here at ATS are aware of Codex Alimentarius. We have all seen the videos about it on Youtube and Google Video. Many of us have listened to podcasts on the subject and have read countless articles about it all over the internet. The official website for Codex claims that the purpose is to harmonize food safety standards and protect the health of consumers. Conspiracy theorists tell a different story though.
It has been claimed by countless sources that Codex goes into global implementation on December 31 2009. It has also been claimed that when this happens, all of our food will be stripped of any real nutritional value while dietary supplements will either be outlawed or reformulated to be of little to no effect. The end result would be billions of people starving to death on empty calories while the globalist elites would be the only ones with access to clean food with real nutrition. The ultimate tool for depopulation.
Right now, I am wondering if anybody out there knows of an original source for these claims. The reason why I ask is because all I can seem to find are conspiracy websites that link to other conspiracy websites as their proof. That is all fine and good but conspiracy websites are not original sources. Neither are Youtube videos. I’m wondering who the original whistle blowers are and what kind of credentials they have.
Please understand that there is no doubt in my mind that the agenda behind Codex Alimentarius is completely nefarious. It would certainly be an effective way to control the world’s food supply. And that is not a good thing no matter how you try to spin it. I believe that Codex is a real and looming threat to the health and happiness of billions of people. So I’m wondering how worried should we be about this? How credible is the information we have heard so far? Is it possible to separate fact from paranoia? Anybody have any ideas?
Just on the off chance that there is someone reading this that has no idea of what I’m talking about, here are some links to get you started.
The official website for Codex Alimentarius. Of course you won’t find any of those claims there. Just Codex propaganda.
A popular video about the nefarious nature of Codex
Another popular video about the nefarious intentions behind Codex. Ironically, the guy in this video seems to think that the speaker in the previous video is actually trying help the Codex Alimentarius Commission rather than expose it for what it is. Apparently by trying to make truth seekers look like nutjobs or something. Paranoia abounds on this topic.
I must admit that I am deeply worried about this. But I am also slightly skeptical about the credibility of the information that is being circulated. I really think it is high time to start separating fact from paranoia. What say you?
July 2006 – There is currently a significant amount of inaccurate and misleading information circulating on the internet about Codex and other related health freedom issues, much of which would appear to have originated on the website of the so-called Natural Solutions Foundation. Whilst the Natural Solutions Foundation's Medical Director, Rima Laibow, claims to have carefully studied more than 16,000 pages of Codex documentation, the content of her articles and the nature of her proposed strategies strongly suggests otherwise. The following article may therefore help you to sort the facts from the fiction.
