Natural Solutions Foundation has been an unofficial observer at many Codex Alimentarius (World Food Code) meetings world wide over the past half decade. Our presence and reports on YouTube and elsewhere have made this previously little-known UN Commission – and its degradation of the world’s food supply – a matter of intense discussion among health freedom advocates all over the world.
The US is the strongest force, and the biggest bully, in Codex. But the presence of the USA in Codex is not necessarily a positive thing, on at least two levels. On one hand, the US Government, expressed by the FDA, has a stated policy of “HARMonizing” our nutrient freedoms with international restrictions, including restrictions inherent in Codex’s insistence upon treating dietary supplements as though they were industrial toxins, while allowing all sorts of real toxins into the food supply, denigrating natural and organic products. This “HARMonization”, however, is illegal according to several statutes passed by the US Congress.
On the other hand, the presence of the US delegation, with its heavy Big Agra, Big Chema, Big Biotech and Big Biz presence, tilts the Codex process away from natural, local and sustainable food production, leading to global industrialization and degradation of the food supply, mandated under-nutrition and a host of other serious ills, creating massive food borne illnesses: Cancer, Cardiovascular Disease, Stroke, Diabetes, Obesity and a host of others from which we are dying.
So the US presence may benefit neither the American people or the people of the rest of the world.
