CRIMINALIZING VITAMINS

Jul 07, 2005 - FreeMarketNews.com

by staff reports

The “Codex Alimentarius” Commission of the UN World Health Organization has taken yet another step toward the criminalization of nutrition by adopting new guidelines for vitamins and food supplements. The guidelines will set limits on potencies that are allowed in these products and apparently may even be regulated – insofar as US citizens are concerned - via the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) now passed the by the Senate and being debated by the House.

According to Dr. Scott Johnson’s Healthy Living newsletter (see latest issue, FMNN Editorials and Market Analysis, June 6) passage of CAFTA would more firmly bind the US to World Trade Organization regulations and requirements, as follows: “The Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) Treaty will require the U.S., a member of the World Trade Organization, to revise our food laws and regulations based on Codex decisions. CAFTA would force harmonization of our dietary supplements and regulations to international standards, overriding the DSHEA Act of 1994.”

Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX), one of the US’s only true free-market legislators, has reportedly said the following about the Codex: “The Codex Alimentarius Commission, an offshoot of the United Nations, is working to ‘harmonize’ food and supplement rules between all nations of the world. Under Codex rules, even basic vitamins and minerals will require a doctor's prescription. … ”

Although the legal potencies of vitamins haven’t been announced yet, critics believe that the limitations will eventually follow the path of the risk-based World Health Organization's “Nutrient Risk Assessment Project.” Vitamins and other homeopathic medical solutions may be restricted based on potential health risks without any analysis to their benefits. In order to justify restrictions on vitamins, those responsible for the final Codex may argue that because super-high doses may be dangerous, smaller doses may be as well. The lower-end dosages may be modeled along the lines of the restrictive German formula. In Germany, currently, a doctor’s scrip is often needed, reportedly, even for the purchase of aspirin.

While mega-pharmaceutical drugs with high risks of medical complications continue to be “fast tracked” through the FAA, it is looking increasingly likely that vitamins and natural health remedies have little shelf life left before they are severely restricted or even banned in the US, and the rest of the Western world. For about 30 years the FDA has prevented any further research into the use of vitamin B-17, which reportedly has had beneficial effects regarding cancer prevention. Now other potentially promising vitamins will surely come under regulatory scrutiny – and the road to proving their efficacy will surely become more difficult as well.

Once this happens how long will it be before they restrict our soy protiens? Limit what we eat? This is an attempt to destroy alternative diets. If vitamins cost more will people be more inclined to eat meat just because the "essential nutrients" from it are cheaper? maybe they will be more inclined to eat more fruits and veggies... I really dont know, but I dont like what is taking place here.

As a person who is totally interested in alternative medicine, as I hope to become a naturopathic doctor, this news is especially troubling. I have heard in the past how the evil FDA was hoping to regulate herbs and all natural medicines, because the huge drug companies were becoming envious of the fact that they could not profit off of natural medicines, because they were not classified as a drug. There are all sorts of weird nuiansces regarding federal regulation of natural medicine already. Anyone selling or proclaiming that a natural medicine can treat or cure a disease cannot do so, because then they must call it a drug, and a drug must be regulated. WIth every statement concerning natural treatments, they must include a disclaimer. It is all about the money, and it seems like this is just another step for the drug companies to make people sicker, while making their wallets all that much more sicker by exploiting treatments that should be easy to get. They should stick to regulating their hazardous poisons they call prescription drugs and stop worrying about profiting off of natural medicines.

Well Kevin Trudeau and a professor of mine say that since the FDA regulates medicine it is under pressure from big pharma to regulate its competition and that is the vitamins and herbal remedies. I dont know about the chair people of the FDA, and I should look into this, but I bet they have pretty solid ties to big pharma.

I got a bulletin on myspace this takes the Codex stuff I have been mentioning even farther...
US gov't wants to ban organic food?!?!?
Body: The U.S. is about to sign onto an international agreement called "Codex." Codex would effectively ban most organic food from being sold in the U.S., force all animals raised for food to be fed antibiotics and hormones, ban most nutritional vitmains and supplements, and institute mandatory high-dose pesticide spraying on our farms and food.

Please read:

Codex Alimentarius is a UN Trade Commission which would mandate the international trade of adulterated food well below US standards and prohibit the international trade of clinically effective high dose nutrients. Increased, preventable human suffering is the result and the strain on the economy as these needlessly ill people need to be treated with pharmaceutical and other conventional medical treatments (since Codex makes clinically effective nutrients and supplements unavailable) will be the result. Plain English: Codex will restrict or ban most vitamins and supplements and force people to take deadly and expensive pharmacuticals. In Germany this has already happened, and you need a prescription for things like Vitamin C supplements.

Codex presents itself as "Consumer Protection" when in reality it is "Corporate Protection" leading to a degraded food supply with toxins and adulterants which the American people do not want. For example, Codex allows 7 of the 9 deadliest pesticides (banned by the US and the Stockholm Convention) to be used on foods. Further, all high potency vitamins and minerals, protected under DSHEA, would, under harmonization, be lost with or without prescriptions. Also, Codex would effectively ban most organic food from being sold in the U.S., force all animals raised for food to be fed antibiotics and hormones, and institute mandatory high-dose pesticide spraying on our farms and food.

Congress knows virtually nothing about Codex although Congress can vote down our legal protections like DSHEA while opening the door for Codex without ever realizing there was a connection unless we educate them. That's what a Congressional Codex briefing will do.

Congress is our main defense against Codex, a threat of which they have generally never heard! A Codex Briefing will tell them what Codex is, what it will mean to them and their families and to their constituents. It will also inform the members of Congress about what they need to do to protect the US from this looming health disaster.

We all need to contact our members of Congress, and strongly urge them to set up a Congressional Codex Briefing.

Congress acts to satisfy the loudest voice. The Bigs (Big Pharma, Big Chema, Big Agribiz, Big Biotechna and Big Medica) have loud voices because they spend astonishing amounts of money over and under the table. Last year, Big Pharma spent $780 Million on Congressional lobbying, according to USA Today (April, 2005). Yet Despite This, We have the loudest voice of all because we send these people to Congress -- or don't!

Most members of Congress have never heard of Codex! It's up to you. Here are the steps which you need to take (and will need to take many times before this war is won, I am afraid):


TAKE ACTION. Visit www.healthfreedomusa.org and Email Your Members of Congress - Urging them to Set Up a Codex Briefing.
