The Codex Alimentarius is a threat to the freedom of people to choose natural healing, medicine and nutrition worldwide. Ratified by the World Health Organization, and going into Law in the United States in 2009, the threat to health freedom has never been greater.“Codex Alimentarius” means “food rules” in Latin. The organization was born in 1962 when the UN established the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) as a “Trade Commission”. It was created to regulate, and thus control, every aspect of how food and nutritional supplements are produced and sold to the consumer. It is solely about trade and the profits of multi-national corporations.
Codex is unscientific because it classifies nutrients as toxins and uses “Risk Assessment” to set ultra low so-called “safe upper limits” for them. Risk Assessment is a branch of Toxicology, the science for assessing toxins. The proper science for assessing nutrients is Biochemistry. Codex does not use Biochemistry.
Codex is made up of many standards for every aspect of food. One of these standards was ratified in July 2005: the destructive Codex Alimentarius Vitamin and Mineral Guideline (VMG). The VMG can ban all high potency and clinically effective vitamins & minerals. For example, Vitamin C would be restricted to only a few milligrams per dose. Other nutrients, such as amino acids, are also under threat.
Codex Alimentarius allows high levels of 7 of the 9 most toxic pesticides in the world, in our food. These compounds are so toxic that the Stockholm Convention (PDF) was created to eliminate them from the planet! Codex, however, allows them in your food along with 206 other toxic pesticides.
The joint WHO/FAO (World Health Organization and Food and Agriculture Organization) projections for the impact of the Codex Alimentarius’ nutrition and mineral guidelines alone (not including the impact of pesticides), when it goes into global implementation in 2009, will result in a minimum of 3,000,000,000 DEATHS. One billion through starvation and two billion will die from the preventable diseases of under-nutrition.
This is a talk by Dr. Rima Laibow MD from the Natural Solutions Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating people about how to stop Codex Alimentarius from taking away our right to freely choose nutritional health.
