Is The World Being Set Up To Accept Draconian Codex Standards?
New Developments Paint A Grim Picture!

Many new developments in the supplement war have occurred
in the past week showing the true intentions the United Nations and the
Pharma cartel has in store for the planet. Our free access to dietary supplements
is in serious jeopardy. The situation is more serious than many have been
reporting and unless Americans wake up to the impending threat our whole
industry and our whole nation will be radically altered very soon.
It began last week when the Alliance For Natural Health (
based out of the UK issued a press release announcing a change in the time
table that the European Court of Justice will issue their final ruling on
the legal challenge to the EU Food Supplements Directive.
On April 5, 2005 the Court’s Advocate General, Leendert
Geelhoed, declared in his Opinion that the Directive was fundamentally flawed,
and contravened EU law. He concluded:
“…that the Directive infringes the principle of
proportionality, because basic principles of Community law, such as the
requirements of legal protection, of legal certainty and of sound administration
have not been properly taken into account. The Directive is, therefore,
After Justice Geelhoed declared his opinion, we were told
that the court's final ruling would be issued in June. The court generally
follows the oral opinions of the Justice 80% of the time. Despite what Geelhoed
stated, there is a 20% chance that the EU Court of Justice could still rule
against the Alliance For Natural Health. The entire supplement world is
watching in anticipation for the final outcome. Those who understand the
nature of the beast we're up against will not celebrate victory until it's
a done deal.
And that's what has me quite concerned. The final
ruling has been moved to July 12th. Why is that significant you
ask? The next Codex meeting where they are hoping to ratify an agreement
on the Vitamin and Mineral Standard takes place in Rome, Italy July 4-9.
July 9th is a Saturday. July 12th is a Tuesday; only the second business
day after Codex wraps up its meeting. Does anyone smell a rat?
What kind of power does the pharmaceutical industry wield
that they can force an EU Court to issue a final ruling AFTER Codex instead
of before? Those in the health freedom movement have been looking forward
to a ruling in favor of the Alliance For Natural Health BEFORE Codex. A
positive ruling before Codex would have been a major setback for the pharmaceutical
big boys. Now the sinister nature of what's brewing behind the scenes leaves
many questions unanswered. In my opinion supplement consumers are about
to get hammered by Codex. There was no way the pharmaceutical industry was
going to risk decades of hard work going up in smoke by allowing the EU
Court of Justice to derail the Codex Vitamin and Mineral Standard.
The reality of the situation is that the entire health supplement
industry worldwide is in serious trouble. What's happening is quite alarming.
The postponement of the EU Court's ruling shows me that ominous storm clouds
are on the horizon.
There were also two other important developments this past
week that paint a grim picture. The second issue that should concern U.S.
supplement consumers is the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA).
Despite serious protests and petitioning CAFTA has cleared a major hurdle.
The House Ways and Means Committee endorsed the seven-nation pact on June
15th. According to a news report by the Wall Street Journal, "Mr. Bush
could submit to Capitol Hill the formal legislation needed to implement
CAFTA as soon as this week. The House and Senate then will vote on the measure
What does CAFTA have to do with our rights as Americans to
buy nutritional supplements?
According to John Hammell of International Advocates
For Health Freedom (IAHF) (http://www.iahf.com),
"The WTO, NAFTA, CAFTA and FTAA trade agreements all contain SPS(Sanitary
Phytosanitary Measures) language. Article 3 of SPS states:
'To harmonize sanitary and phytosanitary measures on as wide
a basis as possible, Members SHALL base their food safety measures on international
standards, guidelines or recommendations.'
This makes the supposedly "voluntary" Codex Alimentarius
standard for vitamins and minerals MANDATORY for all WTO member nations.
Passage of CAFTA and FTAA would broaden and deepen the scope
of the SPS agreement, forcing harmonization of not only our dietary supplement
laws to mindless international standards, but it would lead to the creation
of a supranational body similar to the EU in our hemisphere, and we oppose
this clear threat to U.S. sovereignty.
When the draft text of CAFTA was first made available on January
28th, 2004 the Governors of all 50 States discovered that they were bound
by the 2,400 page agreement - being specifically listed in chapter 9. A
third have since rescinded their support of CAFTA."
In light of CAFTA moving quickly ahead we need to be concerned
about our health freedoms despite the double talk and outright lies being
put out by pharmaceutically dominated industry trade associations like the
Council For Responsible Nutrition (CRN), The National Nutritional Foods
Association (NNFA), and The American Herbal Products Association (AHPA)
who are all telling supplement companies that Codex will not affect our
domestic laws. In addition to this, they also are telling supplement companies
that Codex is a good thing.
Hot on the heels of CAFTA is FTAA which has major thrust behind
it by the Rockefeller clan and multinational corporations. David Rockefeller
has publicly declared as far back as 1997 that FTAA will be a done deal
in 2005. So, the reality of the situation is very serious people. Not only
will we lose our supplement rights and health freedoms if we can't stop
Codex, CAFTA, FTAA, the WTO, and the United Nations, we will lose our entire
country to a world body of unelected bureaucrats who believe the population
of planet earth needs to be reduced from 6.6 billion people down to 500
This leads me to the last and final development of the last
week that is great cause for concern. Cong. Ron Paul just
released an article discussing the "United Nations Reform Act of 2005."
According to Cong. Paul:
"The proposed legislation opens the door for the United
Nations to routinely become involved in matters that have never been part
of its charter. Specifically, the legislation redefines terrorism very broadly
for the UN’s official purposes -- and charges it to take action on
behalf of both governments and international organizations.
What does this mean? The official adoption of this definition
by the United Nations would have the effect of making resistance to any
government or any international organization an international crime. It
would make any attempt to overthrow a government an international causus
belli for UN military action. Until this point a sovereign government retained
the legal right to defend against or defeat any rebellion within its own
territory. Now any such activity would constitute justification for United
Nations action inside that country. This could be whenever any splinter
group decides to resist any regime -- regardless of the nature of that regime."
In case you don't understand the legal implications of this,
it's quite apparent that supplement consumers and health freedom activists
will also be defined as terrorists. Resistance to any government or any
international organization (i.e. Codex, WHO, WTO, U.N., etc., etc., etc...)
would become an international crime.
Our country is being sold down the river to this criminal
organization by Republicans and Democrats alike so forget about the politics.
Our friends in Washington are those who stand for "America First"
despite their political affiliation. The sad reality is very few politicians
are on the side of the American people anymore. We have the best government
money can buy.
To conclude, I would encourage all of you reading this to
forward this alert to everyone you know. We are going to lose our whole
country if we don't stop what's happening.
