The Future of Food - Codex Alimentarius - Be Aware

We should all become aware of Codex Alimentarius. It will be implemented this December.

What is it?     A new set of world standards for human food consumption.

Who is it?      A commission jointly controlled by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization.(FAO)

What is it doing?      Redefining what are nutrients and what are toxins for human consumption.

Why is this important?       Because their new food standards will be first implemented into the EU, and then because of the World Trade Organization (WTO) they will come to America and affect our foods, nutrients, and restrict our intake of vitamins and natural foods.

 

Some of the things they are passing into law:

Allowance of over 3,275 pesticides, including 2,4-D, atrazine, methyl bromide

Approve use of chemical additives and 'processing aids' into organic foods

Reduce and restrict maximum daily doses for vitamins and supplements

Allow Genetically Modified (GM) foods with no consumer reporting

Approve 'Terminator' seeds for international trade

Approve GM seeds with built in pesticides

Develop GM animals for human consumption of meat, milk and cheese

 

This thing is dangerous and we need to become informed. Our friends at Monsanto are big promoters as sales of their 'Terminator' seeds and Bovine Growth Hormone (RBGH) will skyrocket.

There are many sites and youtube vid's on the subject. A good short introductory vid is by Dr. Robert Verkerk, Executive & Scientific Director for the Alliance for Natural health at:

Re: The Future of Food - Codex Alimentarius - Be Aware

Do you have any other info on this aside from youtube videos? I was hoping you might have the proposed laws that are before the EU, or even the bill number in the states...

I have heard about a few different bills htat exist, all be it in the beginning stage, but exist none the less.

pure curiosity

Hi Mike, here are a couple:

The supposed, unbiased wikipedia:   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Codex_Alimentarius   

Be sure to see the, 'Controversy section' where Ron Paul is quoted, "that the Central American Free Trade Agreement increases the possibility that Codex regulations will be imposed on the American public."

This 2nd site has multiple links (from their home page) to Codex

http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?page_id=157

I particularily enjoyed the comment ....."One of them, the “Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses” (CCNFSDU), is chaired by Dr. Rolf Grossklaus, a physician who believes that nutrition has no role in health. This is the “top-guy” for Codex nutritional policy, and he has stated that “nutrition is not relevant to health”. As unbelievable as it may sound, Dr. Grossklaus actually declared nutrients to be toxins in 1994 and instituted the use of toxicology (Risk Assessment) to prevent nutrients from having any impact on humans who take supplements!"

Spread the word.
