Codex Alimentarius

Billions of people expected to die under current Codex Alimentarius guidelines

Your right to eat healthy food and use supplements of your choice is rapidly vanishing, but every effort
has been made to keep you in the dark about the coming nutricide. Codex Alimentarius is scheduled for
full global implementation on December 31, 2009, and not a word has been spoken in main stream
media about this threat to humanity. Yet, according to the projections of the World Health Organization
(WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), a minimum of 3 billion people will die from
the Codex mandated vitamin and mineral guideline alone. As the clock ticks toward this irrevocable
deadline, the Natural Solutions Foundation (NSF) and its medical director, Dr. Rima Laibow, are
feverishly working to change Codex guidelines. They need your help.
Former Nazi is father of contemporary Codex

Former Nazi Hermann Schmitz looked for an alternative to brute force for controlling people and realized that
people could be controlled through their food supply.

Codex is the enemy of everyone except those who will profit from it, according to Dr. Laibow. She
points to its association with those who committed crimes during the Nazi regime. At the end of World
War II, the Nuremberg tribunal judged Nazis who had committed horrendous crimes against humanity
and sentenced them to prison terms. One of those found guilty was the president of the megalithic
corporation I.G. Farben, Hermann Schmitz. His company was the largest chemical manufacturing
enterprise in the world, and had extraordinary political and economic power and influence with the
Hitlerian Nazi state. Farben produced the gas used in the Nazi gas chambers, and the steal for the
railroads built to transport people to their deaths.
While serving his prison term, Schmitz looked for an alternative to brute force for controlling people
and realized that people could be controlled through their food supply. When he got out of prison, he
went to his friends at the United Nations (UN) and laid out a plan to take over the control of food
worldwide. A trade commission called Codex Alimentarius (Latin for food code) was re-created under
the guise of it being a consumer protection commission. But Codex was never in the business of
protecting people. It has always been about money and profits at the expense of people.
In 1962, the timetable was set for Codex to be fully implemented on a global level by December 31,
2009. Under Codex, committees were established to create guidelines on such topics as fish and
fisheries, fats and oils, fruits and vegetables, ground nuts, nutrition, food for specialized uses, and
vitamins and minerals. There were 27 committees in all, creating a huge bureaucracy. Under Codex
there are over 4,000 guidelines and regulations on everything that can be put into your mouth with the
exception of pharmaceuticals which are not regulated by Codex.
Codex is a weapon being used to reduce the level of nutrition worldwide
Codex is an industry dominated regulation setting organization, and as such has no legal standing.
Participation in Codex is said to be voluntary. But Codex has risen to the level of de facto legal
standing because Codex is administered by the WHO and FAO. They fund it and run it at the request of
the UN. Since the WHO and FAO are supposed to be about health, there is conflict of interest. The
committees of Codex work up guidelines, rules and regulations, and present them to a Codex
commission for ratification. Once they are ratified and approved by consensus, they become mandatory
for any country that is a member of the WHO.
Codex was accepted when the WTO was formed in 1994 as a means of harmonizing food standards
globally for easy trade between countries. As a result, countries must harmonize with Codex if they
want to have any standing in a trade dispute. When disputes arise and countries are pulled in to WTO,
the one that is Codex compliant automatically wins, regardless of the merits of its case.
Dr. Laiblow sees codex as a weapon to make every nation scurry to become compliant to the decline in
nutritional standards. She points out that compliance in the U.S. will mark the end of its consumer
protection laws. Codex will not serve consumers. Codex will serve the interests of the medical,
pharmaceutical, biotechnology, chemical, and big agricultural industries.
Under Codex, nutrients are classified as poisons
The Dietary Substances Health and Education Act (DSHEA), was signed into law in 1994 for the
purpose of ensuring that safe and appropriately labeled products would remain available to those who
wanted to use them. In the findings associated with this law, Congress stated that there may be a
positive relationship between sound dietary practice and good health, and a connection between dietary
supplement use, reduced health-care expenses, and disease prevention. Under DSHEA, nutrients and
herbs are classified as food. There is no upper limit set, and access is freely given. Americans are
allowed to have any nutrients they want, because under English common law, anything that is not
expressly forbidden is permitted.
Codex, on the other hand, is based on Napoleonic law under which anything not expressly permitted is
forbidden. Therefore, only what is expressly allowed under Codex will be permitted, and everything
else is forbidden. In 1994, the same year DSHEA was signed, Codex had nutrients declared to be toxic
and poisonous. And as poisons, they claimed people must be protected from them through the use of
toxicology and risk assessment, under which scientists test small doses on animals until they are able to
discern an impact. They then take the first sign of the most minimal impact and divide this amount by
100 to establish a safety margin required from these poisons. This means that the largest dose of any
nutrient allowed under Codex is 1/100th of the amount shown to produce the first discernable impact.
Nutrients allowed under codex are limited to those on the positive list, expected to contain only 18
nutrients, one of them being fluoride. Dr. Laibow points out that although fluoride has no biological
benefit whatsoever, it does make people complacent.
The codex proponents now have several bills before Congress designed to overturn and get rid of
DSHEA. Once this is accomplished, the U.S. will have been harmonized with the vitamin and mineral
guidelines of codex. High potency, therapeutically effective, significant nutrients will then be illegal in
the way that heroin is illegal. They will not even be available by prescription.
Codex supports toxic food additives, pesticides and GM foods
Dr. Rima Laibow explains Codex Alimentarius. See the video here >>
Codex poses a significant threat to the food supply, according to Dr. Robert Verkerk, founder and
director of the Alliance for Natural Health. About 300 dangerous food additives that are mainly
synthetic will be allowed under Codex, including aspartame, BHA, BHT, potassium bromate,
tartrazine, and more. Dr. Verkerk is particularly concerned that no consideration has been given to
potential risks associated with long-term exposure to mixtures of additives.
Codex sets limits for the dangerous industrial chemicals that can be used in food, but they are
incredibly high, and the list of chemicals that can be used is long. In 2001, 176 countries including the
U.S. got together and decided that 12 highly toxic organic chemicals, known as persistent organic
pollutants (POPS) were so bad that they had to be banned. There are many more than 12 toxic
chemicals used on food, but these 12 were unanimously declared to be the worst. Of these, 9 are
Under Codex, 7 of the 9 forbidden POPS will again be allowed in the production of food. All together,
Codex allows over 3,275 different pesticides, including those that are suspected carcinogens or
endocrine disrupters. There is no consideration of the long-term effects of exposure to mixtures of
pesticide residues in food.
Organic food governance will be dumbed down to suit the interests of large food producers. Various
synthetic chemical additives and processing aids will be allowed, and food labeled as organic may be
irradiated. Labeling will permit the use of hidden, non-organic ingredients.
Monsanto, a member of Codex, will benefit greatly as production of genetically modified (GM) foods
are stepped up and more GM plants are given the green light. Terminator seeds will be approved for
international trade. GM food animals will also be on the way.
Under Codex, every dairy animal can be treated with growth hormone, and all animals in the food
chain will be treated with sub-clinical levels of antibiotics, according to Dr. Laibow. She claims that
Codex will lead to the required irradiation of all foods with the exception of those grown locally and
sold raw.
Dr. Laiblow sees Codex as "food regulations that are in fact the legalization of mandated toxicity and
under-nutrition". According to her, the WHO and FAO estimate that of the 3 billion people initially
expected to die as the result of the Codex vitamin and mineral guidelines, 2 billion of them will die
from the preventable diseases that result from under-nutrition, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease,
diabetes, and many others. Those who will live will be the wealthy elites who are able to somehow
provide themselves with sources of clean food and other nutrients.
Codex is legalized genocide
Dr. Gregory Damato, Ph.D., writing for Natural News, has characterized Codex as "population control
for money". He sees Codex as run by the U.S. and controlled by the big pharmaceutical corporations
and the likes of Monsanto with the purpose of reducing the population of the world to a level
considered sustainable by those promulgating the New World Order. This would mean a reduction of
approximately 93 percent of the current world population.
Once Codex standards are adopted there will be no turning back. When Codex compliance is instigated
in any area, as long as the country remains a member of the WTO, those standards cannot be repealed,
or altered in any way.
Natural Solutions Foundation is working to revamp Codex guidelines worldwide
Some hope remains. Over the years, the WTO has accepted Codex standards as presumptive evidence
of the rules of trade between countries. However, several times in history, the WTO has refused to
make Codex the single and only standard to be used in trade disputes. Under Codex’s own statutes,
their guidelines are claimed to be "advisory", and nations are able to set up their own guidelines.
Since compliance with Codex standards is simply presumptive evidence, and not finally determinative,
a nation can opt out of the guidelines in an effort to protect its traditional foods and remedies. The
Codex Two Step is a legal strategy that the Natural Solutions Foundation has developed to help nations
wanting to do this. Under Step One, the country develops its own food and health guidelines that may
be at variance with Codex guidelines. For example, it may be much stricter on the issues of toxins in
the food supply or on the issue of genetically modified foods. It may require, for example, that
companies using GM ingredients be required to indicate them on food labels. In countries that refuse to
use GM foods, this can be indicated on their label too, so that people can make informed choices.
So, the first step is for a country to set up its guidelines. The Second Step is to adopt a national law that
implements those guidelines on a sound scientific basis. The NSF is preparing models to be used for
doing this that are available to any country. There is a model vitamin and mineral guideline, and a
model of a food and health statute to implement that guideline.
Normally, in a trade dispute before the WTO, the country that has adopted Codex guidelines will be the
winner of that dispute based on those guidelines being presumptive evidence. However, when countries
have gone through the two step process to create their own guidelines, there is no such presumption,
and the WTO will look at the science behind the guidelines.
In the U.S. the door is open to Codex
In 1995, the FDA issued a policy statement saying that international standards such as Codex would
supersede U.S. laws governing all food. Under the Central American Free Trade Agreement, which is
illegal under current U.S. law, but is legal under international law, the U.S. is required to conform to
Codex as it stands on December 31, 2009.
This is why NSF needs your help. Because the current pro-Codex stance of the U.S. is in violation of
current laws, NSF has created a Citizen’s Petition in which they are asking the U.S. government to
amend its Codex position according to the Two Step plan that Codex allows. This petition is a ground-
breaking legal approach to compel the government to hold public hearings and move from a pro-illness
Codex position to a pro-health position. If the government does not respond in an appropriate manner,
the next step in the process is to take them to court.
A Citizen’s Petition is a legal means to focus a government agency’s attention on an issue of concern to
citizens. Once a Citizen’s Petition has been entered, a docket to debate it is opened and public comment
is accepted. A Citizen’s Petition does have one thing in common with the more familiar types of
petitions. Any number of people can add their names to it and become co-petitioners.
So far, over 30,000 people have joined this petition, and three members of Congress have written a
Congressional Letter in support of it. NSF needs you to read and sign this petition by going to… On this site you will also find a letter that can be sent to the
U.S. Codex Manager, Dr. Edwin Scarbrough, and Dr. Barbara Schneeman, Head of the FDA’s Office of
Nutritional Products.
Dr. Liabow is encouraging people to pass the word about Codex to everyone they know or with whom
they come in contact. As a reader of Natural News, you are in the forefront of knowledge regarding
health standards and the need to safeguard them. You are probably someone who others look to for
advice on health matters. As such, you are in a special position to help this petition move forward. The
new guidelines created by NSF have mandated biochemically individual determination of optimal
health. These guidelines need to be adopted by Congress and also by other countries who value their
traditional foods and remedies.
When Dr. Laibow was recently working in Washington D.C. to inform the members of Congress about
Codex, she found that very few of them knew anything about it all. As they have become informed,
some have come out against Codex. This makes writing to your congressmen on this issue critically
important. Tell they about the threat of Codex. Suggest that they need a congressional briefing on the
issue and suggest that they contact Dr. Rima Laibow. Remember, any negative part of Codex can be
overturned by a guideline that is positive.
And while you at it, be sure to sign the Health Revolution Petition, created by Mike Adams, editor of
Natural News http://www.healthrevolutionpetition… This petition highlights a series of actions
critically needed to move from a disease care model to a true health care model with the goal of
restoration and perpetuation of vibrant health for everyone.
