Posted on 08/06/2009 8:20:56 PM PDT by ex-Texan
Your right to eat healthy food and use supplements of your choice is rapidly vanishing, but every effort has been made to keep you in the dark about the coming nutricide.
Codex Alimentarius is scheduled for full global implementation on December 31, 2009, and not a word has been spoken in main stream media about this threat to humanity.
Yet, according to the projections based on figures from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), a minimum of 3 billion people will die from the Codex mandated vitamin and mineral guideline alone.
Former Nazi is father of contemporary Codex
Codex is the enemy of everyone except those who will profit from it. Codex has an association with those who committed crimes during the Nazi regime. At the end of World War II, the Nuremberg tribunal judged Nazis who had committed horrendous crimes against humanity and sentenced them to prison terms. One of those found guilty was the president of the megalithic corporation I.G. Farben, Hermann Schmitz. His company was the largest chemical manufacturing enterprise in the world, and had extraordinary political and economic power and influence with the Hitlerian Nazi state. Farben produced the gas used in the Nazi gas chambers, and the steel for the railroads built to transport people to their deaths.
While serving his prison term, Schmitz looked for an alternative to brute force for controlling people and realized that people could be controlled through their food supply. When he got out of prison, he went to his friends at the United Nations (UN) and laid out a plan to take over the control of food worldwide. A trade commission called Codex Alimentarius (Latin for food code) was re-created under the guise of it being a consumer protection commission. But Codex was never in the business of protecting people. It has always been about money and profits at the expense of people.
In 1962, the timetable was set for Codex to be fully implemented on a global level by December 31, 2009. Under Codex, committees were established to create guidelines on such topics as fish and fisheries, fats and oils, fruits and vegetables, ground nuts, nutrition, food for specialized uses, and vitamins and minerals. There were 27 committees in all, creating a huge bureaucracy. Under Codex there are over 4,000 guidelines and regulations on everything that can be put into your mouth with the exception of pharmaceuticals which are not regulated by Codex.
Codex is a weapon being used to reduce the level of nutrition worldwide
Codex is an industry dominated regulation setting organization, and as such has no legal standing. Participation in Codex is said to be voluntary. But Codex has risen to the level of de facto legal standing because Codex is administered by the WHO and FAO. They fund it and run it at the request of the UN. Since the WHO and FAO are supposed to be about health, there is conflict of interest. The committees of Codex work up guidelines, rules and regulations, and present them to a Codex commission for ratification. Once they are ratified and approved by consensus, they become mandatory standards for any country that is a member of the WHO.
Codex was accepted when the WTO was formed in 1994 as a means of harmonizing food standards globally for easy trade between countries. As a result, countries must harmonize with Codex if they want to have any standing in a trade dispute. When disputes arise and countries are pulled in to WTO, the one that is Codex compliant automatically wins, regardless of the merits of its case.
Codex has become a weapon to make every nation scurry to become compliant to its mandated decline in nutritional standards. Compliance in the U.S. will mark the end of its consumer protection laws. Codex will not serve consumers. Codex will serve the interests of the medical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, chemical, and big agricultural industries.
Under Codex, nutrients are classified as poisons
The Dietary Substances Health and Education Act (DSHEA), was signed into law in 1994 for the purpose of ensuring that safe and appropriately labeled products would remain available to those who wanted to use them. In the findings associated with this law, Congress stated that there may be a positive relationship between sound dietary practice and good health, and a connection between dietary supplement use, reduced health-care expenses, and disease prevention. Under DSHEA, nutrients and herbs are classified as food. There is no upper limit set, and access is freely given. Americans are allowed to have any nutrients they want, because under English common law, anything that is not expressly forbidden is permitted.
Codex, on the other hand, is based on Napoleonic law and is much more restrictive. In 1994, the same year DSHEA was signed, Codex had nutrients declared to be toxic and poisonous. And as poisons, they claimed people must be protected from them through the use of toxicology and risk assessment, under which scientists test small doses on animals until they are able to discern an impact. They then take the first sign of the most minimal impact and divide this amount by 100 to establish a safety margin required from these poisons. This means that the largest dose of any nutrient allowed under Codex is 1/100th of the amount shown to produce the first discernable impact.
Nutrients allowed under Codex are limited to those on the positive list, expected to contain only 18 nutrients, one of them being fluoride. Although fluoride has no biological benefit whatsoever, it does make people complacent.
The Codex proponents now have several bills before Congress designed to overturn and get rid of DSHEA. Once this is accomplished, the U.S. will have been harmonized with the vitamin and mineral guidelines of codex. High potency, therapeutically effective, significant nutrients will then be illegal in the way that heroin is illegal. They will not even be available by prescription.
Codex supports toxic food additives, pesticides and GM foods
Codex poses a significant threat to the food supply, according to Dr. Robert Verkerk, founder and director of the Alliance for Natural Health. About 300 dangerous food additives that are mainly synthetic will be allowed under Codex, including aspartame, BHA, BHT, potassium bromate, tartrazine, and more. Dr. Verkerk is particularly concerned that no consideration has been given to potential risks associated with long-term exposure to mixtures of additives.
Codex sets limits for the dangerous industrial chemicals that can be used in food, but they are incredibly high, and the list of chemicals that can be used is long. In 2001, 176 countries including the U.S. got together and decided that 12 highly toxic organic chemicals, known as persistent organic pollutants (POPS), were so bad that they had to be banned. There are many more than 12 toxic chemicals used on food, but these 12 were unanimously declared to be the worst. Of these, 9 are pesticides.
Under Codex, 7 of the 9 forbidden POPS will again be allowed in the production of food. All together, Codex allows over 3,275 different pesticides, including those that are suspected carcinogens or endocrine disrupters. There is no consideration of the long-term effects of exposure to mixtures of pesticide residues in food.
Organic food governance will be dumbed down to suit the interests of large food producers. Various synthetic chemical additives and processing aids will be allowed, and food labeled as organic may be irradiated. Labeling will permit the use of hidden, non-organic ingredients.
Monsanto, a member of Codex, will benefit greatly as production of genetically modified (GM) foods are stepped up and more GM plants are given the green light. Terminator seeds will be approved for international trade. GM food animals will also be on the way.
Under Codex, every dairy animal can be treated with growth hormone, and all animals in the food chain will be treated with sub-clinical levels of antibiotics. Codex will lead to the required irradiation of all foods with the exception of those grown locally and sold raw.
Codex is food regulations that are in fact the legalization of mandated toxicity and under-nutrition. Of the 3 billion people initially expected to die as the result of the Codex vitamin and mineral guidelines, 2 billion of them will die from the preventable diseases that result from under-nutrition, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and many others. Those who will live will be the wealthy elites who are able to somehow provide themselves with sources of clean food and other nutrients.
Codex is legalized genocide
Dr. Gregory Damato, Ph.D., writing for Natural News, has characterized Codex as "population control for money". He sees Codex as run by the U.S. and controlled by the big pharmaceutical corporations and the likes of Monsanto with the purpose of reducing the population of the world to a level considered sustainable by those promulgating the New World Order. This would mean a reduction of approximately 93 percent of the current world population.
Once Codex standards are adopted there will be no turning back. When Codex compliance is instigated in any area, as long as the country remains a member of the WTO, those standards cannot be repealed, or altered in any way.
The time for modifying Codex guidelines is rapidly disappearing
Some hope remains. Over the years, the WTO has accepted Codex standards as presumptive evidence of the rules of trade between countries. However, several times in history, the WTO has refused to make Codex the single and only standard to be used in trade disputes. Under Codex`s own statutes, their guidelines are claimed to be "advisory", and nations are able to set up their own guidelines as long as they are more restrictive than those of Codex.
Since compliance with Codex standards is simply presumptive evidence, and not finally determinative, a nation can opt out of the guidelines in an effort to protect its traditional foods and remedies. The Codex two step process is a legal strategy developed to help nations wanting to do this. Under step one, the country develops its own food and health guidelines that may be at variance with Codex guidelines. For example, it may be much stricter on the issues of toxins in the food supply or on the issue of genetically modified foods. It may require, for example, that companies using GM ingredients be required to indicate them on food labels. In countries that refuse to use GM foods, this can be indicated on their label too, so that people can make informed choices. The second step is to adopt a national law that implements those guidelines on a sound scientific basis.
Normally, in a trade dispute before the WTO, the country that has adopted Codex guidelines will be the winner of that dispute based on those guidelines being presumptive evidence. However, when countries have gone through the two step process to create their own guidelines, there is no such presumption, and the WTO will look at the science behind the guidelines.
In the U.S. the door is open to Codex
In 1995, the FDA issued a policy statement saying that international standards such as Codex would supersede U.S. laws governing all food. Under the Central American Free Trade Agreement, which is illegal under current U.S. law, but is legal under international law, the U.S. is required to conform to Codex as it stands on December 31, 2009, unless it creates its own guidelines and gets them approved under the two step process. Given current government sentiment, this seems unlikely. Besides, as guidelines are one-by-one chiseled into standards, time is running out.
For more information:
The father of the act was Henry Waxman and the mother was Nasty Pelosi. The act was powered by millions in campaign contributions from Monsanto Corporation. In other words, the act reeks of bribery and corruption.
I urge you to do your own research on HR 2749. Among other things, it outlaws all natural and organic food. It mandates food crops grown in the U.S. to be grown in a 'sterile environment' free of everything but Monsanto's genetically modified seeds. The act reeks of totalitarian control of all American food production. It will also outlaw all organic and natural food stores in the U.S. In the state of Oregon, this was the only bright spot in our recession-raped economy. Passage of the act will throw thousands more out of work.
Time is very short: The act will go to the U.S. Senate immediately after the August recess !
You know what to do in the meantime. If you do not take action right away, Obama has promised to sign the act into law immediately.
Dang, sounds like science fiction novel.
i like cheese
Obama is a fictional president. What else do you expect ___ ?
Please go take your meds. Now.
You only have until September, 2009 to act . . .
Recall back in 2004 and 2005 when I was warning everybody about hyper-inflated real estate: I was viciously attacked by 'freepers' in the pay of mortgage companies, and mortgage brokers, bankers and shills getting paid by NY banks. Over 200 hacking attack per day were directed at me from corporate offices.
Check my freeper page if your memory is faulty . . .
Eventually, I was proven 100% correct. My predictions that said real estate was wildly inflated were true. Houses valued at $ 1.5 Million in Los Angeles fell down to $ 750k. And even lower. Prices are still falling. The foreclosure crisis is just heating up. It will get worse for another three years.
I come again in good faith to warn people. The trolls again come out to throw verbal bricks and insults. You actually believe the toxic spin of Obama and Nasty Pelosi _____________ ?
So be it . . .
Now why would Monsanto want to get rid of 93% of the world's population?
The demand for RoundUp Ready corn and soybeans would take a big hit.

Good post. I’ve been aware of codex for some time, have written my congressmen about it. It is rather daunting to consider this with cap and trade, health care, etc. Amounts to a bloodless coup.
~~Madness is devouring our country .. PING!
I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK !
New World Order . . .
I can't express enough how important it is for those of us who are dedicated to food security, and the ongoing availability of good, local, organic produce, to do whatever we can to prevent Monsanto from colonizing our primary sources of seed. Toward that end, I'm also posting the list of companies owned by Monsanto for your review, in case you find others whose seeds you've bought.
(rolling eyes) So now it's unhealthy for women to use a popular feminine hygiene product? Sheesh.
I can see how that makes perfect sense . . . to somebody who believes that a law is about to be passed that “mandates food crops grown in the U.S. to be grown in a ‘sterile environment’ free of everything but Monsanto’s genetically modified seeds”. Me? I think I’ll wait to hear some loud howls from DuPont and Syngenta, the number 2 and 3 global seed purveyors, who would presumably have some very loud objections to the entire United States being decreed a Monsanto-only zone.
Trust me, you’re paranoid.
Some Codex standards that will take effect on December 31, 2009 and, once initiated, are completely irrevocable include:
* All nutrients (vitamins and minerals) are to be considered toxins/poisons and are to be removed from all food because Codex prohibits the use of nutrients to prevent, treat or cure any condition or disease
* All food (including organic) is to be irradiated, removing all toxic nutrients from food (unless eaten locally and raw).
* Nutrients allowed will be limited to a Positive List developed by Codex that will include such beneficial nutrients like Fluoride (3.8 mg daily) developed from environmental waste. All other nutrients will be prohibited nationally and internationally to all Codex-compliant countries .
* All nutrients (e.g., CoQ10, Vitamins A, B, C, D, Zinc and Magnesium) that have any positive health impact on the body will be deemed illegal under Codex and are to be reduced to amounts negligible to humans health .
* You will not even be able to obtain these anywhere in the world even with a prescription.
* All advice on nutrition (including written online or journal articles or oral advice to a friend, family member or anyone) will be illegal. This includes naturalnews.com reports on vitamins and minerals and all nutritionists consultations.
* All dairy cows are to be treated with Monsantos recombinant bovine growth hormone.
* All animals used for food are to be treated with potent antibiotics and exogenous growth hormones.
* The reintroduction of deadly and carcinogenic organic pesticides that in 1991, 176 countries (including the U.S.) have banned worldwide including 7 of the 12 worst at the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pesticides (e.g., Hexachlorobenzene, Toxaphene, and Aldrin) will be allowed back into food at elevated levels .
* Dangerous and toxic levels (0.5 ppb) of aflotoxin in milk produced from moldy storage conditions of animal feed will be allowed. Aflotoxin is the second most potent (non-radiation) carcinogenic compound known to man.
* Mandatory use of growth hormones and antibiotics on all food herds, fish and flocks
* Worldwide implementation of unlabeled GMOs into crops, animals, fish and trees.
* Elevated levels of residue from pesticides and insecticides that are toxic to humans and animals.
[Recall back in 2004 and 2005 when I was warning everybody about hyper-inflated real estate]
I do and, despite the protestations of the shills, you were right on target ET.
So what is that supposed to mean? Are you saying that all the seeds from that list of companies are somehow compromised, that what they sell as heirlooms and open pollinated seeds really aren’t, that have somehow been compromised by Monsanto?
And where is any verification that Monsanto owns all those seed companies?
I seem to recall that you were the some of same people who attacked my real estate posts back in 2004, 2005, and 2006. I was 100% correct. And you were 100% wrong.
Kurtz: Are you an assassin?

“Meet the New Boss, same as the Old Baal”
Remember that time when.... “Gee guys, Moses has been up on that hill an awfully long time; he and his God must be dead! So hey, let’s throw all our gold into the fire and have a big party(D) in honor of what comes out!”
It’s a Baal out, get it? Badumpump ;->
I heard it was 30 billion.
Your story reads like something from a paranoid person’s basement. Especially the part about the desire to kill off 93% of the worlds population.
But I do think this bill is unneeded and goes way to far, and puts much to much power in the hands of govt agencies.
I have just emailed those thoughts to my Congressman.
Sounds like THE OMEN. A lot of what is happening sounds like THE OMEN. I don’t say it can’t happen here anymore. Too many things are already happening that I would have never thought possible.
THIS particular thing, I have been hearing rumors of for months. Not so quick to call it tinfoil stuff anymore.
No one thought what the Nazis did could be possible either.
Please do research on stuff like this before you post it. People at the website you posted, have refuted what you linked to.
Monsanto does not own these companies. Some of the companies listed apparently buy some of their seed lines from a company that Monsanto purchased. Big difference.
>>Especially the part about the desire to kill
>>off 93% of the worlds population
That would be consistent with the progressive doctrine of Transhumanism / Postgenderism; to whose True Believers we’re just pesky breeders who haven’t evolved yet.
Crazy? Yep. But that does not stop them from believing it.
And for a historical perspective, what percent of the world’s population didn’t fit the criteria for inclusion in the Nazi master race?
Once “The Opiate” is eliminated, and the moral framework destroyed... anything goes.
I’m sure in Germany as well as other countries in the 1930’s people thought that things would never get “that” bad; that Hitler talked big but was crazy, etc. And that people who warned about him were paranoid nutcases.
Oh I know there are those out there who want to kill off much of humanity.
They are probably Earth First members and hate Monsanto.
I just doubt that they work for Monsanto..
Thanks for the post, why would anyone think this is not possible with what we see going on in our Congress today. Every thread is about what this socialist government is doing to us and yet they question this? thanks again.
This bill will ruin small farmers. This bill will destroy a vital section of our nearly totally raped economy.
You Nasty Pelosi shills ought to resign from FR.
JMPO -- flame away for Obama and Pelosi and Waxman . . .
Many of us will be doing damn well what we think is best, and the feds will have to learn to leave us all alone.
Hell they can't even keep unarmed poor Mexican illeglas fromm walking acriss the Southern Border, how are they going to make farmers do a damn thing?
Ping to article, #1 and #22.... because we need to know these things.
Once Codex standards are adopted there will be no turning back. When Codex compliance is instigated in any area, as long as the country remains a member of the WTO, those standards cannot be repealed, or altered in any way.
Time is very short: The act will go to the U.S. Senate immediately after the August recess!
INDEED! INDEED! INDEED!
HORRENDOUS TRAITOROUS GENOCIDE BY THOSE TASKED TO PROTECT.
This was part of what I was thinking of when we were in the Sams’ vitamin area.
Plant a garden.
You were right. My late father's Bay Area house went down $440 a day from Dec. 2007 to Dec. 2008. I've probably lost about $25 to $42K of my inheritance. I have no plans to speak to my siblings who bungled all this due to ignorance and utter selfishness...and yes they are all flaming liberals and voted for Obama.
A year or so ago I would’ve thought this could never happen here.
Then election day came.......
You know who Obama appointed to be the Food Safety Czar office don't you _______ ? The former head of Monsanto !
Google it yourself. Corruption, bribery, money and dirty payola rule.
You cannot grow any crops but genetically modified and FDA approved crops. You cannot use natural fertilizers. You cannot give your produce to a neighbor OR ELSE you may be arrested by Obama's minions.
Read the Act. Study up. Learn something before you post. Watch the video I posted. This is serious !
Your ignorance is no longer amusing.
You are acting like a paid shill for Obama, Pelosi and Waxman.
The same kind of nonsense came at George W. Bush, but he toned down or refused the worst of it. Obama can’t have enough socialism, and damn the foolishness of it. We can NOT depend on the system to take care of itself today. We must oppose!
Google the key words for yourself. Obama is a nothing but a paid NWO shill.
Politicians want us to go to them for our government-approved and government-provided food, water and medicine.
Unfortunatel, that is not paranoia.
Monsanto of itself wouldn’t seem like such a bad thing, but influence buying almost always speaks of a nefarious purpose.
