Codex Alimentarius and other draconian legislation


To quote directly from Wiki:

The Codex Alimentarius (Latin for “food code” or “food book”) is a collections of internationally recognized standards, codes of practice, guidelines and other recommendations relating to foods, food production and food safety.

Its name derives from the Codex Alimentarius Austriacus.

Its texts are developed and maintained by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, a body that was established in 1963 by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

The problem with this seemingly innocuous code, as with other global-reach legislation of this nature, is:

It is a mandatory standard for food – including vitamin and mineral supplement – safety. One of the main causes of concern is that the Codex Alimentarius is recognized by the World Trade Organization as an international reference standard for the resolution of disputes concerning food safety and consumer protection.

In practical terms:

In 1996 the German delegation put forward a proposal that no herb, vitamin or mineral should be sold for preventive or therapeutic reasons, and that supplements should be reclassified as drugs.

The proposal was agreed, but protests halted its implementation.

The 28th Session of the Codex Alimentarius Commission was subsequently held July 4 – July 9, 2005. Among the many issues discussed were the “Guidelines for Vitamin and Mineral Food Supplements”, which were adopted during the meeting as new global safety guidelines.

This text has been the subject of considerable controversy, in part because many member countries may choose to regulate dietary supplements as therapeutic goods or pharmaceuticals or by some other category.

The text does not seek to ban supplements, but subjects them to labeling and packaging requirements, sets criteria for the setting of maximum and minimum dosage levels, and requires that safety and efficacy are considered when determining ingredient sources.

What’s so bad about this?

The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) have stated that the guidelines are “to stop consumers overdosing on vitamin and mineral food supplements.”

What sort of effing excuse is that for controlling the food and pharmaceuticals industries? And who controls all this? One central body and who is on the board? The very same people who stand to make billions, while people are receiving sub-standard products from only WHO approved sources.

In Britain, the regulations on needed drugs are insane. Underpowered tablets and liquid medicines are some of the worst – not doing the job and forced on pharmacists for fear that people will overdose if they are sold full strength products.

This is centralized interference of the worst sort, it characterizes the British Socialist government, it characterizes the EU and it characterizes the world organizations like WHO.

Take this insane legislation, for example.  But it is global in scope.  The WHO’s motives, for example,  have been questioned on a variety of issues, swine flu being the latest.

The American Chronicle reports:

As if there wasn’t already enough information about the questionable Swine Flu Pandemic — and the potentially lethal Swine Flu Vaccine being produced with mass impunity by some of the larger Pharmaceutical companies that will be used on the world populations with possibly devastating consequences — the reported secrecy surrounding minutes of a key World Health Organization (WHO) meeting of an advisory vaccine group that was packed with executives from Baxter, Novartis and Sanofi recommending compulsory vaccinations in the U.S., Europe and other countries raises a multitude of red flags while offering more evidence that the lawsuit filed against the WHO, other world organizations and governments and the actions leading up to this ‘Swine Flu pandemic’ should be examined more closely.

Since the Swine Flu ‘pandemic’ allegedly began, it hasn’t made any sense. Now the WHO is reportedly refusing to release the minutes of a key meeting, that involves executives from Pharmaceutical companies standing to make billions in profits. The WHO claims there are no minutes of the meeting that took place on July 7th — a meeting in which guidelines on the ‘need’ for worldwide vaccinations adopted by the WHO were formulated by the executives of large Pharmaceutical companies.

One of the UK government’s top advisors — who was among the first UK ‘experts’ to call the outbreak a pandemic — on Swine Flu is reportedly a sitting board member of GlaxoSmithKline, offering more evidence of the deadly fraud being perpetrated against the world’s population by their governments.

The Swine Flu has been intentionally bioengineered in laboratories. Since the WHO changed its definiton of a pandemic in order to falsely create a pandemic, the WHO could force everyone in the 194 countries who comprise it to forcibly take vaccinations, impose quarantines and restrict travel.

Austrian Investigative reporter Jane Burgermeister produced verifiable evidence that the WHO supplied 72 kilos of live bird flu virus to Baxter’s Austrian subsidiary to be used to manufacture swine flu vaccine.

Why? The virulent material was sent out to 16 labs in 4 countries by Baxter’s criminal actions under false labels designating the contaminated product as vaccine.

The supply of water has now also undergone a similar gathering into the hands of a few powerful bodies such as Monsanto and Bechtel but that’s another post.  There is a clear trend on a global scale, it is being driven by powerful organizations and it is no friend of the common man.

These things can be fought.  In the doom and gloom in the now third rate nation the United Kingdom, there are sparks of vocal protest and the power of people’s voices are beginning to be heard.  We are the lucky ones though because we still have articulate spokespeople to cry out at trends we just don’t wish to see.

The U.S.A. and Canada have this too and people are taking direct action, e.g. the tea parties, not in themselves affecting legislation but serving notice that the people are watching and noting.

They can ignore the will of the people in these developed societies for only so long and the social engineering in education to produce a new dumbed-down generation has ignored the fact that there are two generations before that still not dumbed down enough nor compliant enough to put up with all this.

    The most obviously ludicrous dosage issue is that the same dosages of many drugs are recommended for any “adult”, often defined as someone over 12, but sometimes as over 16. Either way, a slim 6 stone girl is recommended to take the same dose of aspirin, paracetamol, whatever as a 20 stone man. Crazy. And I am only allowed to buy two little packets of aspirin at the supermarket, but I am perfectly free to buy enough whisky to kill a platoon of soldiers. Not that I want them to restrict my purchases of whisky… oh no, that’s not the direction my logic was heading in at all!

    This is the whole thing in my attitude too. Leave the politics aside if we can, leave the public slanging. It’s the lack of common sense which galls. If we need a certain medicine, we’re adult – we go to the chemist who should know what he’s about. He’ll recommend we take this does or that. That’s all we need and then we go and take that dose.

    With my dental thing, he gave a dosage [and it was mighty powerful] and left me to follow the dosage. I did. End of story.

    So why this state interference in the matter?

    Good call, James. Hardly anyone knows about Codex Alimentarius and it is particularly dangerous for this reason.

  4. November 18, 2009 at 19:12

    Ah yes those big corporate bodies. I particular bugbear of mine!

    The worst aspect of Codex Alimentarius is that it seeks to regulate anything that affects health. This leaves the way open for food to be regulated in the worst possible way.

    The likes of Monsanto, with its GM crops are already, in effect, holding the right to food. Should GM crops be accepted by this government as a legitimate form of crop output, we will find that our entire existance is controlled by the corporations.

    There are already moves afoot to regulate what we can grow in our gardens – including vegetables!

    This means that there will be no possibility for revolt by the people because they can literally starve us into submission.

    Very dangerous indeed.

    That’s the whole point, Fausty.

    Cherie, when you say, seemingly innocuously, ah those big corporate bodies, that’s a loaded comment. It could mean, ah those multinational global socialists or it could mean ohe those terrible capitalists, an invitation for the socialists to ban all companies and therefore capitalism. It’s a very loaded term.

    The companies I was thinking of aren’t very innocuous that is why I said it the way I did.

  8. November 19, 2009 at 21:19

    I have now sent you some of my thoughts 😉

    Thought you might, Cherie.
