According to Wikipedia:
The Codex Alimentarius (Latin for “food code” or “food book”) is a collection of internationally recognized standards, codes of practice, guidelines and other recommendations relating to foods, food production and food safety. Its name derives from the Codex Alimentarius Austriacus. Its texts are developed and maintained by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, a body that was established in 1963 by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The Commission’s main aims are stated as being to protect the health of consumers and ensure fair practices in the international food trade. The Codex Alimentarius is recognized by the World Trade Organization as an international reference point for the resolution of disputes concerning food safety and consumer protection.
The Codex Alimentarius officially covers all foods, whether processed, semi-processed or raw, but far more attention has been given to foods that are marketed directly to consumers. In addition to standards for specific foods, the Codex Alimentarius contains general standards covering matters such as food labelling, food hygiene, food additives and pesticide residues, and procedures for assessing the safety of foods derived from modern biotechnology. It also contains guidelines for the management of official (i.e., governmental) import and export inspection and certification systems for foods.
The controversy over the Codex Alimentarius relates to a perception that it is a mandatory standard for food – including vitamin and mineral supplement – safety. Supporters of the Codex Alimentarius say that it is a voluntary reference standard for food and that there is no obligation on countries to adopt Codex standards as a member of either Codex or any other international trade organization. From the point of view of its opponents, however, one of the main causes of concern is that the Codex Alimentarius is recognized by the World Trade Organization as an international reference standard for the resolution of disputes concerning food safety and consumer protection. Proponents argue that the use of Codex Alimentarius during international disputes does not exclude the use of other references or scientific studies as evidence of food safety and consumer protection
It is reported that in 1996 the German delegation put forward a proposal that no herb, vitamin or mineral should be sold for preventive or therapeutic reasons, and that supplements should be reclassified as drugs. The proposal was agreed, but protests halted its implementation. The 28th Session of the Codex Alimentarius Commission was subsequently held July 4 – July 9, 2005. Among the many issues discussed were the “Guidelines for Vitamin and Mineral Food Supplements”, which were adopted during the meeting as new global safety guidelines. This text has been the subject of considerable controversy, in part because many member countries may choose to regulate dietary supplements as therapeutic goods or pharmaceuticals or by some other category. The text does not seek to ban supplements, but subjects them to labelling and packaging requirements, sets criteria for the setting of maximum and minimum dosage levels, and requires that safety and efficacy are considered when determining ingredient sources. The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) have stated that the guidelines are “to stop consumers overdosing on vitamin and mineral food supplements.” The Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) has said that the guidelines call “for labelling that contains information on maximum consumption levels of vitamin and mineral food supplements.” The WHO has also said that the Guidelines “ensure that consumers receive beneficial health effects from vitamins and minerals.”
Similarities have been noted between the EU’s Food Supplements Directive and the Codex Alimentarius Guidelines for Vitamin and Mineral Supplements.
Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul has said that the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) “increases the possibility that Codex regulations will be imposed on the American public. “
In December 2009 Codex Alimentarius banned the sale and use of vitamin and mineral supplements in the 3rd World.
Many people believe this could lead to around 3 billion deaths Worldwide, one billion due to malnutrition and a further two billion from treatable illnesses. This was achieved by declaring vitamins and minerals as drugs, which have not been declared suitable for human consumption. Norway and Germany have voluntarily adopted Codex guidelines, in those Countries vitamin C cannot be bought in quantities greater than 200 mg; it would be illegal to sell them in greater quantities.
Further criticism of Codex suggests that its true aims are for global population reduction, through a number of measures all relating to food. These include banning of organic foods, genetically modifying food to be less nutritional and to produce so-called “terminator” seeds, that grow once, and any produced seeds are non-viable, this is already being done by US Company Monsanto. Farmers in Iraq now only have access to terminator seeds.
We have no control over what is added into purchased food, but we can control what we put into our mouths.
EVERYONE should become more aware of what is in food and what chemicals are used in non-organic production, if the alleged plans for population reduction are true, your life could depend on it. The following sources all suggest a significant (around 80%) World population reduction:
• Report from Iron Mountain (1967)
• Georgia Guide Stones (Georgia, USA)
• Codex Alimentarius
• UN Agenda 21
• Prince Philip once stated “In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation”
• In the late 19th Century, thirty US States had laws for compulsory sterilisation of “mental patients” and “imbeciles”, this practise continued into the 1970’s.
• A certain Adolf Hitler actively pursued euthanasia and population control
