Banning Sales of Food Supplements Worldwide

Subject: Banning Sales of Food Supplements Worldwide

If we don't act now, we have no right to complain afterwards. Please act now!!!

Please read the very important health message below and contact everyone you can
think of.

Your right to choose your vitamin, mineral and other supplements may end in June
of this year (2005). After that U.S. supplements will be defined and controlled
by the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
The CODEX ALIMENTARIUS (Food Code) is setting the supplement standards for all
countries in the WTO. They will be enforced by the WTO and will override U.S.
laws. The U.S. President and Congress agreed to this take-over when the WTO
Treaty was signed. Violations are punished by WTO trade sanctions. CODEX
drastically restricts vitamins, minerals, herbs and other food supplements.
CODEX met secretly in November, 2004 and finalized "Step 8 (the final stage)" to
begin implementation in June '05.

The CODE includes:

(1) No supplement can be sold for preventive or therapeutic use.

(2) Any potency higher than RDA (minimal strength) is a "drug" requiring a
prescription and must be produced by drug companies. Over 5000 safe items now in
health stores will be banned, terminating health stores as we now know them.

(3) CODEX regulations become binding internationally.

(4) New supplements are banned unless given very expensive CODEX testing and
approval.

CODEX now applies to Norway and Germany, among others, where zinc tablets rose
from $4 per bottle to $52. Echinacea (an ancient immune-enhancement herb) rose
from $14 to $153 (both examples are now allowed by prescription only). They are
now "drugs!" Vitamin C above 200 mg, niacin above 32 mg, vitamin B6 above 4 mg
-all are banned over-the-counter as drugs. No essential amino acids (arginine,
lysine (used effectively for fever blisters), carnitine, L-Tryptophan (used
effectively for eliminating depression), GABA (used effectively for eliminating
anxiety), etc., Essential Fatty Acids (omegas 3, 6, 9, etc.), or other essential
supplements such as DMAE, DHEA, CoQ10, MSM, beta-carotene, etc. are not allowed!

The CODEX rules are not based on real science. They are made by a few people
meeting in secret (see web sites below), not necessarily scientists. In 1993 the
FDA and drug corporations tried to put all supplements under restriction and
prescription. But over 4 million Americans told Congress and the President to
protect their freedom of choice on health supplements. The DSHEA Law was passed
in 1994, which does so. But this will be over ruled by CODEX and the World Trade
Organization!

Virtually nothing about it has been in the media. What the drug corporations
have failed to do through Congress they have gotten by sneak attack through
CODEX with the help of a silent media. What can be done at this late hour?

(1) Spread the word as much as possible. Inform yourselves :
http://www.ahha.org
http://www.iahf.com
http://www.alliance-natural-health.org

(2) Oppose bills S.722 and H.R.3377. These support the CODEX restrictions with
U.S. laws, changing the DSHEA law.

(3) Support H. R.1146 which would restore the sovereignty of the U.S.
Constitution over CODEX, etc.

(4) Express your wishes to the President, Senators and Representatives (They got
us into this!) ASAP.

(5) Contact multi-level health marketing groups that can get their members to
inform the government.

(6) Contact the British Alliance for Natural Health (see Web site above). It has
succeeded in challenging the CODEX directives in World Court and will appear in
court again later this month or next. They need help financially, having carried
the fight effectively for everyone. CODEX and the FDA wish to "protect" us by
controlling supplements in the same way they do prescription drugs. A study of
the latter by three medical scientists was reported in the Journal of the
American Medical Association, April 15, 1998 -Vol. 279, No. 15, p. 1200:
"Incidence of Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR's) was found to be extremely high."
Covering 30 years (1966 to 1996) it was found that in the U.S. an average of
106,000 hospitalized patients per year (290 per day!!) DIE from ADR's and
2,200,000 need more hospitalization for recovery! These were FDA approved drugs,
properly administered by competent professionals in hospitals--none were
considered malpractice. This is the number four cause of dea!
th in the U.S. When combined, these account for 7% of all hospitalized
patients. This is equivalent to a 9-11 attack every ten days. There are very few
fatalities from supplements or the news would be on every front page. There is
no need for more FDA control of supplements than is already in place, which is
substantial. Instead of drastically restricting supplements, why doesn't the FDA
better control, restrict the extremely dangerous pharmaceutical drugs and
require double-blind studies of multiple Px interactions which are now killing
us at the rate of a major airline crash per day?

Do a LYCOS search for "codex alimentarius" and read all you can . . . . This
thing is REALLY, R E A L L Y BAD !

Something like this seems like it would have gotten more attention. What's the source, and how credible is it?

Just a side note, Zn ion is a pretty potent neurotoxin. I laugh when i go past "health" food stores, cause for the most part they are just the opposite.

I don't think health stores are responsible for what you consume....Just like in nature, humans should be carefull and picky on substances.

Some foods/herbs can help, while others can harm , specially when used at a wrong time, combination and by some individuals...

Health is sometimes subjective from person to person.Health food stores just provide natural products, its up to you which ones you choose.

More information in the shops would be positive tho..

I think at least some of that crap should have more warnings. For example creatine, a popular workout supplement is supposed to be cycled on and off ever one to two months maxium. It does not say this on the label or on any of the labels! I naturally cycled the stuff for a while since I just felt that was what I was supposed todo.

But honestly fuck those companies for not telling you the side effects and how to use the substance properly. If you use creatine for more then a few month if can introduce water into your lungs, can mess up your hormones and god only knows what else.

You have to love these workout supplements which are very close to steroids that are completely legal, even to a teen. That is sure a fucked up way to make money, someone should use those firms so that a law is created to protect the people from those money hungry organizations.

Seems like the info is outdated and a bit exagerated, the supplements are safe for now. The codex alimentarius is still a reality though, and the WHO will continue trying to enforce it. But nothing will happen this summer  :laugh:
