PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY
THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK!
You know you are on the right path in the Health Freedom Battle when Codex tries to neutralize you! That’s what happened today at the annual Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) meeting here in Rome. Imagine! The Natural Solutions Foundation is, apparently, such a threat to Codex that they changed the rules and regulations to keep us away from anyone we could influence!
YES! Validation City!
THEN AND NOW: MINGLE VS. ISOLATE
At all previous Codex meetings (including the 2005 CAC in the same building here in Rome) Public Observers have been welcome permitted to mingle with the delegates, sit in the meeting room, have lunch with participants, attend social and other events, etc. And we have been effective in using those precious moments to lobby for our positions (like successfully keeping fluoride out of formula for healthy babies despite the US’ wishes), making connections, strategizing with health friendly nations, etc. Delegates introduce us to their health friendly colleagues in these mingle moments. We hand out material like Codex E-Books (http://drrimatruthreports.com/index.php?page_id=220) and "Nutricide: the DVD" (http://drrimatruthreports.com/index.php?page_id=156) and tell people about the Codex Two Step Process. As you know, we’ve generated quite a lot of forward movement doing just that.
WHY DON’T THEY LIKE US?
But something there is that does not like our success! This year when we arrived at the FAO Building and signed for the CAC, in we learned that our Public Observer’s pass (our usual status since Codex refuses to grant the Natural Solutions Foundation official "Observer" status – which would allow us to speak at Codex meetings!) now did not permit us to:
- Enter the meeting room
- Meet with Delegates
- Enter the FAO lunch room
- Attend any Codex functions
RELEGATED TO THE PEANUT GALLERY
Instead, although the galleries on either side of the meeting room had plenty of empty seats, we were relegated to an upper press balcony where the temperature soon became unbearable. Our only company was 4 graduate students studying Codex (no press) and where there were no outlets for computer use. We did have simultaneous translation devices so it could have been a little worse, I guess.
The Force, however, appears to be with us. Although Darth Vader and his minions tried to isolate and inactivate us, things worked out a little differently! Delegates who know and value our work sought us out, asked where we were and were appalled when we told them how conditions had been arranged to neutralize us.
You will understand why I cannot tell you which countries they represent, but people we had met in our travels came to us and asked for our input and help (which we, of course, were delighted to give). Some told us that they were looking for us because they were eager to continue our dialogue.
After one such interaction, we had a detailed, productive and highly focused 5 hour discussion about how to implement the Codex Two Step Process and reclaim natural agriculture in the countries concerned. We were asked to provide continuing and expanded support in those countries to help them move toward their goals of implementing the new health paradigm and true health freedom. Validation City, redux!
THANK YOU, CODEX, ONCE AGAIN!
So here is the bottom line: We ARE on the right track! Codex keeps confirming it for us:
- In 2006 CAC Chairman Claude Moshe prevented us from sponsoring a delegate from his country. Validation County!
- During the 2006 CAC meeting Moshe publicly attacked the Natural Solutions Foundation. Validation State!
- This year the entire structure of participation at the Codex meeting was re-arranged so that we could not meet and mingle! Validation Nation!
More trips to more countries are emerging from today’s interactions. Stay tuned. This year’s CAC fun is just beginning.
Yours in health and freedom,

PS: Health Freedom isn’t free! It’s pretty expensive, as a matter of fact. Please consider making a generous tax deductible recurring donation (http://drrimatruthreports.com/index.php?page_id=189) to help the Natural Solutions Foundation defray the costs of doing this work.
PPS: Remember to tell Congress to protect your health freedom:
- Support Ron Paul’s Health Freedom Protection Bill, HR 2117 (http://www.democracyinaction.org/dia/organizationsORG/healthfreedomusa/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=11754)
- Oppose/Amend the House version of the FDA Revitalization Bill, HR 1561 (http://www.democracyinaction.org/dia/organizationsORG/healthfreedomusa/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=11344)
