S+F! More people need to be aware of this, if it is in fact true. Also, I am not familiar with the phrase "Codex Alimentarius." So if you or somebody else would mind explaining this to me, it would be greatly appreciated.
This is very scary! Especially because this is a perfect way to initiate a means of population control without the majority of the population ever knowing anything about it.
I was just talking to a few of my friends about the horrors of eating "western" processed foods. It seems as if everybody that is dying these days, is dying from some form of cancer. And I particularly believe that our diets play a very, very large role in this. Especially with all the crap that is in fast foods and everything. This thread in particular is a great example: Pizza Hut cheese is not just cheese, its silicone!
Its hard to eat healthy as well, mostly because healthy unprocessed food is far more expensive than cheap microwavables, and not as readily available... At least for me as a poor college student. Great find tho OP, I will certainly be following this thread very closely.
wow there is so much crap here that it actually made me sign up just to post on ats.
first of all, say that all of it is actually true, and the conspiracy is real. how would they ever implement it even if they wanted to? like it was stated that a mere legislation for changing the nature of herbs was canned after protest. what makes you guys think something that is so grand is actually going to fly?
second, say that they did make it work and now we all have no nutrients, people are going to notice their weakness real soon and most of the billions of death wont be from malnutrition but from revolutions.
third, lets not forget that supplements and vitamins are already pharmaceutical products even if they are not restricted substances. the companies may be different than big pharma but they are sure to be affiliated in may ways. so to put this plan in action would result in may of these companies going bankrupt. not to mention the years that these companies campaigned for the benefits of their stuff only to turn around and lose their user base because of lack of confidence. somehow i just don't think that even if the TPTB wanted to do this, they would pick to do it during world wide economic chaos
as for the nutrients in the blood comments, just because you have them in your blood doesn't automatically mean you can think.

We have lots of dandelions in our yard. Do you have any good recipes.
I'm no cook. I am actually too afraid of chemtrails to pick anything out of the yard, Last spring the whole lawn was dusty and I got sick everytime I mowed the lawn.
Does anyone have any ideas on something we could grow indoors that would be healthy and nutritious?

I've looked all over the site and I can't find anything fishy. I went through this the last time I saw this topic pop up.
Codex Alimentarius gets their nutrition guidlines from WHO. Their guidelines are no worse than the FDA's which are already horrible. There's really no further damage that can be done to our nutrition.
As far as supplements getting banned, please show me where it says so.
In fact the Codex A. site has standards for various supplement packaging and preparation standards.
I was caught up in the hype for a while, but now I'm thinking this is a bunch of scare mongering. Somehow I think the party involved must be connected to some kind of large company that's going to get damaged so they are stirring up a conspiracy around it.
So, again, show me facts, not a women rambling on. I can't find anything on the site.
By the way, if this really did happen
You could just start eating dandilions out of your lawn to make up for nutritional loss

Like you said 1/3 of the population in the US is a plumped obese chicken....1 @#$% 3rd is a fat cow. That is a crap load of fat people and yet we are still debating whether or not the food we eat is bad for us.
it means the US will be "recommended" by the WHO to sell fake eggs.
UN commission adopts safety guidelines for vitamin and food supplements
11 July 2005 – Labelling to stop consumers overdosing on vitamin and mineral food supplements and guidelines to minimize the emergence of potentially deadly drug-resistant microbes were among some 20 new and amended standards announced today by a United Nations commission that is the highest international body on food standards.
The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the UN World Health Organization (WHO) said in a joint release that the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC), a subsidiary of both agencies, adopted the recommendations at the end of a weeklong meeting in Rome attended by delegates from 120 countries.
The guidelines say people should be encouraged to select a balanced diet to get the sufficient amount of vitamins and minerals. Only in cases where food does not provide sufficient vitamins and minerals should supplements be used.
In 2008, food and product safety issues that had been smoldering in China finally erupted in a rash of scandals, most having to do with melamine-tainting in food products such as milk, eggs, ammonium bicarbonate, protein powder, and animal feed, but also including food poisoned with pesticides, a maggot outbreak in oranges, hazardous toys, and toxic furniture.

I got all excited about this a while back and tried reading the codex to see what was really there. Like most UN documents its a mess and virtually impossible to understand what is really going on.
I do occasionally shop for stuff at a supermarket (I get weak for things like soy sauce and peanut butter)
In the recent past, there have been many food safety issues in China. 2004 was a scandalous year for tainted foods in China: a counterfeit milk powder resulted in over 60 infant deaths; noodles tainted with lead; vegetables pickled with pesticides and industrial-grade salt; counterfeit alcohol resulted in four deaths by alcohol poisoning; and soy sauces discovered to be made from human hair.

Additives and supplements is pretty much all the nutrients people are getting now a day!
Unless you have your own goat, your own chickens, grow your own vegetables or pay outrageous prises for "organic" food at the health food store you are eating processed food.
Is this really that hard to understand?...
DAFF also gave €250,000 towards the implementation of the International Treaty for Plant Genetic Resources for Agriculture
and Food and €215,893 towards the Codex Alimentarius Trust Fund
