Talk about taking the world over just like the Hitler did but one set at a time.
Just look at the can of worms that you congress has put you in wow what a way to go they just said to every American screw you guy.
Not only that, but Codex Alimentarius is now enforceable through the World Trade Organization (WTO). If a country disagrees with or refuses to follow
Codex standards, the WTO applies pressure by withdrawing trade privileges and imposing crippling trade sanctions. Congress has already bowed to this
pressure several times and so have the governments of many countries.
While the exemption clause (USC 3512(a)(1) and (a)(2) was created to supposedly protect our laws from harmonization to international standards, it has
proven to be totally ineffective. The United States has already lost seven trade disputes despite the exemption clause. Due to the enormous pressures
put on them by lobbyists from multinational corporations (who contribute millions to congressional campaigns), Congress bowed to pressure and changed
It appears our government (as well as al others) is being manipulated one way or another to serve the goals of the UN, the World Health Organization
and the World Trade Organization. Food control equals people control -- and population control. Is this beginning to sound like world government and
one-world order? Could this be the real goal behind Codex Alimentarius?
The United States, Canada, the Europeans, Japan, most of Asia, and South America have already signed agreements pledging total harmonization of their
laws including food and drug laws to these international standards in the future.
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.
According to John Hammell, a legislative advocate and the founder of International Advocates for Health Freedom (IAHF), here is what we have to look
"If Codex Alimentarius has its way, then herbs, vitamins, minerals, homeopathic remedies, amino acids and other natural remedies you have taken for
granted most of your life will be gone. The name of the game for Codex Alimentarius is to shift all remedies into the prescription category so they
can be controlled exclusively by the medical monopoly and its bosses, the major pharmaceutical firms. Predictably, this scenario has been denied by
both the Canadian Health Food Association and the Health Protection Branch of Canada (HPB).
The Codex Alimentarius proposals already exist as law in Norway and Germany where the entire health food industry has literally been taken over by the
drug companies. In these countries, vitamin C above 200 mg is illegal as is vitamin E above 45 IU, vitamin B1 over 2.4 mg and so on. Shering-Plough,
the Norway pharmaceutical giant, now controls an Echinacea tincture, which is being sold there as an over the counter drug at grossly inflated prices.
The same is true of ginkgo and many other herbs, and only one government controlled pharmacy has the right to import supplements as medicines which
they can sell to health food stores, convenience stores or pharmacies."
It is now a criminal offence in parts of Europe to sell herbs as foods. An agreement called EEC6565 equates selling herbs as foods to selling other
illegal drugs. Action is being taken to accelerate other European countries into 'harmonization' as well.
Paul Hellyer in his book, "The Evil Empire," states: "Codex Alimentarius is supported by international banks and multinational corporations
including some in Canada, and is in reality a bill of rights for these banks and the corporations they control. It will hand over our sovereign rights
concerning who may or may not invest in our countries to an unelected world organization run by big business. The treaty would make it impossible for
Canadian legislators either federal or provincial to alter or improve environmental standards for fear of being sued by multinational corporations
whether operating in Canada or not.
This will create a world without borders ruled by a virtual dictatorship of the world's most powerful central banks and multinational companies. This
world is an absolute certainty if we all sit on our hands and do nothing."
This is the future the FDA and FTC are striving to bring us via Codex harmonization. Is this a future we are going to willingly accept or prevent?
WHY TARGET THE INTERNET?
It is no accident that the FDA and FTC are targeting Internet health sites through Operation Cure-All. We are standing in the doorway of an
unprecedented revolution -- the information revolution brought about by the Internet.
Now all people everywhere have the ability to learn about anything that interests them with just a few clicks. History has shown that informed,
educated people change civilizations -- they change the flow of thought and they change the flow of money. They can even change the direction of a
country. When similar transitions have happened in the past, the powers that existed did not give up willingly. The Catholic Church fiercely protected
its practice of selling 'indulgences' as a forgiveness of sin. When the practice was abolished, the Catholic Church lost a great deal of power and
When the printing press was invented, books were banned and printers were imprisoned by the authorities, who feared an educated public could not be
governed. In the same way, the medical monopoly (and the UN) now fears that a public educated in health and privy to the shortcomings of modern
medicine could not be controlled. Loss of control means loss of revenue and loss of power. And they are doing everything they can to stop progress so
they can contain their losses and strengthen their power.
The printing press changed the world. Can you imagine what life would be like today if the book banners had their way? But because the printing press
won out, society progressed and freedom was embraced. The Internet is changing the world in an equally significant way. While the entire Internet can
hardly be suppressed, the pharma-cartels and their backers are looking to protect their interests by restricting as much information as they can on
Will we, the people, win out again -- or will the UN and the World Health Organization agenda and the pharmaceutical cartel change the course of
history and take us back to the "dark ages" of medicine?
WHAT CAN WE DO?
Step number one is learn as much as possible about this issue. Here are some websites where you will find a great deal of information:
