Codex Alimentarius is an international code of food standards developed by a Commission under the United Nations through the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
Codex is here.
What is it? How will Codex affect your freedom of choice concerning how you chose to maintain your health? Will Codex limit your free access to vitamins, nutrients, herbs and other alternative forms of health care? Many believe it will. Awareness is important and there is reason for concern.
Will the last person leaving the last health food store, who purchased the last bottle of non-prescription 500mg vitamin C, please turn out the lights? For now, businesses that sell a service, conform to medically imposed licensing requirements, don’t make "medical" claims and don’t sell a product, can remain open.
The New World Order, the World Economic Order, the Brave New World, or whatever you want to call it is developing rapidly. International trade cooperation rule and Codex Alimentarius are here. Codex, the word/concept comes to us from the Roman Empire and the Romans used it as the way to impose law, regulation and authority on a broad scale on its citizens and conquered lands/people. Codex will effect you, me, everyone in the U.S. and everyone in our world in some way.
We first heard of major international trade regulation legislation early in the Clinton administration. International trade legislation has facilitated the easy exportation of American jobs to Third World countries.
Codex can negatively affect all Americans that chose to stay healthy by not using our prescription, drug/chemical based health care system. If the U.S. wants to remain a part of Codex, we will need to follow the international rules/laws that are a part of Codex.
Europe is a part of Codex and the European Union will put into affect a pharmaceutical directive stating that anything that changes or enhances human physiology will be controlled as a medical product. This includes items and practices that might prevent disease. Most items found in a health food store, most vitamins, minerals, protein, herbs, etc., will be available by prescription "only." Codex is supported and sponsored by the World Health Organization and the pharmaceutical Industry, of course.
Codex will not affect the individual that has chosen to use conventional established, medical health care. About 50 percent of our population has their freedom to choose guaranteed as long as they, their insurance or our government can pay for their drugs and medical services.
The individual who makes the choice to use alternatives to conventional medical health care has his freedom of choice protected (for now) by the U.S. Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) which protects our mostly free access to alternative health care practices, vitamins, herbs nutrients, etc.... Because the U.S. belongs to Codex, The World Health Organization can pressure the U.S. to modify DSHEA to conform to its guidelines.
Our Food and Drug Administration, the American Medical Association and our pharmaceutical industry have long wanted to control and regulate our access to alternative health care. Many believe they want to eliminate the alternative healthcare industry altogether. Codex offers them the opportunity for much more control.
The health care industry spends about $150 million every year to purchase political influence and to assure control and profits. Our medical industry will spend about $2 billion, $800 million in advertising, this year to keep you convinced.
Are the people that chose to use alternative health care going to lose their freedom of choice? Many European nations have lost this choice and more will be losing it soon. Is Codex a threat to you? Is freedom of choice important to you? Who is watching out for your health?

How Codex Disinformation Works
There are many who claim that Codex Alimentarius is about “consumer protection”, or that it is “voluntary”, or that it is a downright “urban legend” or “hoax”. None of these claims comes anywhere near the truth. Dr. Laibow has analysed 16,000 pages of Codex Alimentarius documentation, and her analysis is that none of these claims are true.
Codex, once fully implemented, represents tremendous financial wealth for a few multinational corporations, most notably companies in the pharmaceutical industry.
These corporations have immense propaganda machines, already in place, hawking dangerous and sometimes deadly drugs, creating the illusion that nutrients are dangerous, the illusion that drugs are the only means to health, the illusion that genetically modified food are good for people, and the illusion that pesticides are safe.
Because Codex Alimentarius represents wealth to these corporations, they are using their skill and influence in the media to create an elegantly crafted, and totally false image of Codex Alimentarius as “consumer protection” so that the truth about Codex Alimentarius wont be known.
They can’t control the Internet however.
Keeping Codex-Reality at Bay
Why would anyone want to disseminate misleading information about Codex Alimentarius? Because the truth is unacceptable to people: Codex Alimentarius would eradicate natural health options from the global marketplace, and thus does not serve the health interests of the people. People would not take warmly to this. Those creating the propaganda behind Codex Alimentarius know this.
There are approximately 60 million people in America who care strongly about natural health. This group of the population are part of a market called LOHAS (”Lifestyle Of Health And Sustainability”). They care about such things as natural health, sustainability, fair trade, social justice, and personal development. If millions of people in the LOHAS community, who care about natural health, found out the truth about Codex, then Codex would face tremendous resistance.
We believe that the pharmaceutical industry, which is one of the industries behind Codex Alimentarius, fears the awakening of the LOHAS to the real Codex agenda. That’s why they are working so hard to deceive, mislead, and pacify.
The Three Flavors of Codex Disinformation
“Disinformation” is information that is deliberately meant to mislead. Effective disinformation is never an outright lie. That would be too easy to see through.
Codex disinformation is plentiful and comes in three distinct flavors. They are listed below with real-life examples to help you to discern fact (that Codex is a threat) from fiction (that Codex is “consumer protection”, “voluntary”, or “urban legend”):
Disinformation Type 1: “Consumer Protection”
Example: The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) is trying to make us believe that Codex is for our own protection from supposedly “dangerous” vitamins and minerals. This type of paternalistically-oriented disinformation strategy sounds palatable, were it not for the simple fact that Codex will not in the least bit protect us from anything. It would unscientifically obstruct our freedom of choice in supplements, herbs, and clean food for no other reason than to eliminate natural health so that the pharmaceutical industry can make more money. The CRN membership is made up of some of the largest pharmaceutical corporations around: Bayer, Wyeth, Monsanto, and others.

Disinformation Type 2: “Voluntary”
Example: National Nutritional Foods Association (NNFA) is supposed to protect the natural supplement industry. But it’s old-time health freedom fighters have been (silently) replaced by people from the pharmaceutical industry. The NNFA is now working hard to make people believe that “Codex is not a problem” because it is “voluntary”. Could this disinformation have anything to do with the fact that the NNFA has members from the pharmaceutical industry? Certainly.

Disinformation Type 3: “Urban Legend”
Example: Snopes.com is a web site that traces the roots of urban legends, to dispel those that are false. But they are in fact creating their own urban legend when it comes to Codex Alimentarius. The urban legend snopes.com is guilty of creating says that “Codex Alimentarius is a hoax”.

Government Not Exposing Truth
The FDA isknown to favor the pharmaceutical industry at the expense of natural health, and thus is by default aligned with the implementation of Codex Alimentarius.
The FDA is firmly committed to “harmonization” with Codex. But this is for economic reasons, not health. “Harmonization” is the process by which Codex overrides the sovereign food and health laws of a country. On an official FDA site, the agency states the following:
“Failure to reach a consistent, harmonized set of laws, regulations and standards within the free trade agreements and the World Trade Organization Agreements can result in considerable economic repercussions.”
Note that there is no mention of health in the FDA’s statement. And there is no mention of health by the FDA anywhere else in relation to harmonization. It is clear among many health experts and analysts that the concern of the FDA in relation to the World Trade Organization (Codex Alimentarius fits into the WTO umbrella), is the protection of the economic interests of the pharmaceutical companies, and not the health of the people.
It is afact that the pharmaceutical industry carries a lot of influence on the decisions of the FDA.
Where do we go from here? Simple: let’s not believe everything we’re told about Codex Alimentarius.
Let’s bolster our individual power to discern truth and take a pause to consider if what we’ve been told so far by industry and government adds up. It does not add up (Codex would harm consumers, not “protect” them… that you and me). So let’s discard the lies andtake action to protect health freedom from Codex Alimentarius.
