WHAT CODEX WILL BRING
What can we expect under Codex? To give you an idea, here are some important points:
* Dietary supplements could not be sold for preventive (prophylactic) or therapeutic use.
* Potencies would be limited to extremely low dosages. Only the drug companies and the big phytopharmaceutical companies would have the right to produce and sell the higher potency products (at inflated prices).
* Prescriptions would be required for anything above the extremely low doses allowed (such as 35 mg. on niacin).
* Common foods such as garlic and peppermint would be classified as drugs or a third category (neither food nor drugs) that only big pharmaceutical companies could regulate and sell. Any food with any therapeutic effect can be considered a drug, even benign everyday substances like water.
* Codex regulations for dietary supplements would become binding (escape clauses would be eliminated).
* All new dietary supplements would be banned unless they go through Codex testing and approval.
* Genetically altered food would be sold worldwide without labeling.

Not so. At all. We are talking about someone who has forgotten more than you may ever know about eating healthy. This person is no dilettante. And, they did not begin after years of unhealthy eating. It was a lifelong pursuit.
Me you might make those accusations against, if I should get cancer. I am not as religious about my dedication to healthy eating. One of the reasons I brought it up at all, is that those who believe firmly that healthy eating and lifestyle alone will prevent illness tend to be very judgmental of those who get ill. Much as you have been in regard to my friend, assuming it must have been something they did. It genuinely wasnt.
By all means live as healthily as you can. My friends dedication in that regard has helped enormously with the progression of the cancer and in quality of life. But it isnt a guarantee that you will not be stricken by cancer or other disease. While it may well be the case that vaccines or additives are somehow contributing to the level of health problems in people, they are not the SOLE cause of them.
