Dispatches from Codex Commission Meeting
Dispatch No. 2 – 28 June 2008
You probably are familiar with the expression “To crash and burn”. Today was an example of “Burn and Crash” for us! We have certainly been burning the candle at both ends for many, many nights so, when we got to Geneva, we decided to allow ourselves the unaccustomed luxury of sleeping late – to 9 AM.
General Bert has an infallible internal alarm clock upon which we depend since, no matter what the time zone, he can decide to wake up at a particular time and then do it. Until today. When we woke up to the knock of the chamber maid, we looked at each other in something very much like shock – it was 4 PM! So much for the infallible alarm (of course, body time-wise we only overslept an hour!) At any rate, we went out in search of something to eat and then an internet cafe to check email, Skype and write this blog.
Like the UK, Switzerland serves meals at fixed hours and we were between them. The lovely restaurant we remembered from last time was only serving drinks so we went to a local chain of chicken restaurants which serves roasted chicken. Knowing that 60% of the animal feed used in the EU is genetically modified (making the meat or eggs or other food derived from its use as dangerous as any other genetically modified food) I was very uneasy about this option but there was little else.
Imagine my delight and surprise, then, to see the following, in English, on the English translation of the menu:
“Chicken Information – Our Chickens are fed with forage free from genetically modified food, anti microbial agents, animal protein and animal meal. They come exclusively from Swiss poultry productions, with very strict hygiene norms. Thus, our chickens are perfectly healthy and clean. We bake them during 60 minutes at 250 degrees (482 degrees F).”
That means that the owners of Chez de ma Cousine (My Cousin`s House) understands better than the US Government and Codex that GM food is not good for people and that people want to know what they are eating and that it is NOT genetically modified!
Codex Alimentarius, the International Food Code created by the United Nations at the request of the German Pharmaceutical companies after the 2nd Word War (see our DVD, “Nutricide” at www.HealthFreedomUSA.org for more of this very important story) controls the international trade of everything that can legally go into your mouth – except drugs.
See: US Bullies Health Conscious Nations at Codex Committee on Food Labeling Meeting… for the run up to this Codex Commission meeting:
Standards and guidelines are set which degrade food and increase the market share of the illness industry (remember who urged its creation?). The driving force at the Codex meetings is, sadly, the United States which comes to these meetings accompanied by delegation members who work for Big Pharma, Big Agribiz, Big Biotech, Big Chema and Big Medica. Using its considerable heft, the US bullies everyone there who does not want to go along with its commercialization of the food supply.
