Codex Alimentarius, a Horror Unfolding in the Dark
Who and What is Codex Alimentarius? Few people have heard of or about it and even fewer people know the staggering difference between what Codex Alimentarius purports to do and what it really does. If Codex gets its way our organic lifestyle choices will be eliminated and ultimately all food will have minimal nutritional value.
Dr Robert Verkerk is Executive and Scientific Director for the Alliance of Natural Health. His organisation looks to protect and promote natural health, based on good science and law.
I urge every one of you visting this site to watch this clip. Do you really want to see legislation and laws that:
- “Dumb-down organic standards to suit the interests of large food producers,”
- “Approve the use of various chemicals and additives and ‘processing aids’in organic foods,”
- “Drive GM interests which argue world food requirements cannot be met without global implementation of GM.”
Watch the video to find out what else is being planned. As Dr Verkerk says, Codex is an extremely serious and important process that aims to control food globally. Every single person has a right to know, and should want to know, what Codex is planning for us, the population.
The debate on the toxicity of vitamin supplements is rather lengthy, but it’s worth knowing that those trials which reviewed vitamin and mineral supplements as potentially toxic were in fact using high levels of synthetic laboratory produced supplements. Naturally sourced or occurring vitamins were not used at all.
Codex plans to enforce antibiotics for all livestock animals, whether fur or feather. Dr Verkerk talks about the deep fear this society has of disease, and how we have forgotten about the power of our own immune system which has kept us proliferating as a species for thousands of years. Regarding livestock, good husbandry standards (no overcrowding, ensuring suitable hygiene and nutritional standards are met) should be the infection and disease inhibitors, according to Dr Verkerk. It is dangerous, wrong and unnecessary to be injecting our livestock with synthetic chemicals and medicines to keep them artificially ‘healthy’, grow more quickly and produce milk for years on end.
Food irradiation is the next topic. Dr Verkerk talks about how and why foods are irradiated, as well as the very real damage these levels of radiation cause to our foods. Effectively we are left with cosmetic shells that have almost zero nutritional value for our bodies.
The final question concerns the relationship between Monsanto and Codex Alimentarius. Monsanto being one of the largest GM and agri-chemical producers in the world will have significant involvement with numerous governments and government delegations. Given that Codex is an intergovernmental body it will undoubtedly meet regularly, and be influenced by companies like Monsanto. Dr Verkerk points out it is the work and contact made between the meetings that will have real influence on future plans for global food legislation.
What can you do?
Talk about Codex Alimentarius, blog about these things, open up the can of worms. This is not just about organic food, it is about the future of all foods, it’s about nutrition, it’s about the health of the planet and its population. Go and talk.
