Codex (Health)

Important News from Bonn

  Report from Suzan Walter, president of American Holistic Health Association, on her attendance at the November 3-7, 2003, session of Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU) in Bonn, Germany.

A decade of polarized debate quietly came to an end on November 3, 2003.

UN CODEX Attempts to Outlaw Access to Vitamins, and Other Nutritional Supplements

Although written by a prominent Canadian M.D., the article below, one of the BEST we have read on the topic, was distributed by a U.S. group seeking to stop the CODEX in the U.S. The CODEX affects the U.S., Canada, and all member nations of the U.N. We URGE you to read it and decide if maybe, just maybe, it's finally time for you to use the democractic process TODAY to preserve the future of you and your family TOMORROW.

We have reported on this a number of times already. Some of you have sent us messages indicating that you understand the importance.

Guess Who is Going to Water Down Your Vitamins?

by Bill Sardi

Guess who is soon going to dictate the dosage of vitamins and minerals you can purchase?

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration?     Nope.

The National Institutes of Health?     Nope.

The National Research Council/ National Academy of Sciences?     Nope.

The pharmaceutical companies backed CODEX proposals:

The pharmaceutical companies backed CODEX proposals:

1. No vitamin, mineral, herb, etc., can be sold for prophylactic (preventative) or therapeutic reasons.

2. Natural remedies can be sold as food but they must not exceed the potency (dosage) levels set by the commission. (This means that consumer access to dietary supplements will be limited to the RDA dosage as a maximum limit for vitamins (Vitamin C - 60 mg. Vitamin E - 15 mg., etc.) Supplements without an RDA (e.g. coenzyme Q10) would be illegal to sell because they would all become drugs.)
