Today was a bad day at Black
Rock here in Rome. The US supported the Vitamin and Mineral Guidelines and
betrayed US law and you. But thats not all that happened here in the CODEX
ALIMENTARUS Commission meeting today. No, thats not bad enough. Theres a whole
lot more. Here is what the United States participated in and helped to happen in
just one day (dont let the helpful sounding names fool
The dangerously elevated
pesticide levels for a variety of poisonous chemicals were ratified. A win for
Hygienic Practices for Meat
were ratified. A win for Big Agra
Code of Practice to Minimize
and Contain Antimicrobial Resistance was approved. Another win for Big Agra and
one for Big Pharma, too!
Veterinary Drug Maximum
Residue Limits Draft approved. Wins for Big Pharma, Big Agra, Big
Maximum Levels for Cadmium in
Wheat Grain; Potato; Stem and Root Vegetables; Leafy Vegetables; and, Other
Vegetables was approved
Code of Practice for the
Prevention and Reduction of Aflatoxin in Tree Nuts was
I could go on, and on, and
on. And today was only the first day. But instead of listing all of the really
awful standards which were approved or advanced to higher steps in the 8 step
ratification process, let me turn your attention to betrayal.
America has, once again, been
betrayed by the people who should have been protecting her most precious
resource: her people. The US CODEX Offices US CODEX Policy look to me like they
have been sold to the highest bidders: Big Pharma, Big Chema, Big Agra, Big
Biotechna and Big Medica. These high minded-wounding standards and codes are
nothing short of the triumph of corporate greed at your expense and
Let me ask you to think about
America on this sad and sorry "End-of-Independence" Day. Our CODEX Policy is in
the process of taking America apart, illness by illness, and selling its
sovereignty to the highest bidder. Just before the lunch break, Dr. Ed.
Scarbrough spoke to the several hundred delegates and observers in the meeting
room and told them that today was our National Holiday. He explained that if he
were not working, he would be doing what other Americans do today, spending the
time with their families, cooking outdoors and, most of all, playing sports,
especially baseball. And then he threw soft base ball around the room that said
"Courtesy of the US CODEX Office, US Independence Day, July 4, 2005". Honest! I
could not make that up!
My thought was "Dr.
Scarbrough, the US CODEX Manager, has just given a present to the CODEX
Delegates. What is CODEX giving to us? Poisoned plants and animals from which to
feed ourselves and the lack of adequate nutrients with which to protect
ourselves from the consequence of the poisoning."
Independence Day. Makes me
How did America feel on the
day it was revealed that FDR knew about the impending attack on Pearl Harbor and
allowed it to happen?
How did America feel when
information began to leak out that the 9/11 attack was already in the
information system and no one did anything to stop it?
And how does America feel
today when the United States CODEX Office and our CODEX delegation betrayed us
and helped the UN CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Commission declare war on the people of the
US (and the rest of the world), too?
Today, the US delegate (only
one person speaks for each country at CODEX) enacted the US CODEX policy and the
Vitamin and Mineral Standard was adopted. NOT ONE NATION RAISED ITS VOICE AND
SAID, "MY COUNTRY OBJECTS!" NOT ONE!
I made it my business to
speak with the South African delegation before todays meeting started. I
introduced myself and proffered my card. I explained why I was there and I asked
what South Africas position was. Their delegate sneered at me, refused to give
me his card or take mine and said, "South Africa believes that Risk Assessment
is appropriate for nutrients because they are all toxic!" Another betrayal.
So now what do we do?
American has fought a lot of wars, all of them seemed impossible at some point,
often right at the start. Remember George Washington at Valley Forge? The
American Revolution was filled with dark moments and nearly certain defeat. But
because men and women of vision and dedication chose to continue their struggle,
today we are celebrating July 4. What a fitting day for the CODEX enemy to
attack! We have the means, if we have the will, to resist and regain our health
freedoms. Join me!
And if you think that our
protective laws will be enough, let me suggest to you that the forces behind
CODEX are poised to swoop in and steamroller opposition while they change those
laws. Thats a definite battle front in the Vitamin Wars.
Before we left for Rome we
set the offense we need to win this war in motion (wars are not won on the
defensive) with our Citizens Petition and with out letters to Congress urging
Congressional oversight. Well, we are clearly now at war: many, many shots have
been fired by CODEX across our bow today. Heres our combat plan. Ill tell you
and then I will ask you to join me for the sake of the life that each of you
treasures, your own, your familys, and any one you love. Now that the initial
salvos have been fired in the Vitamin Wars, I am asking you to enlist in the
Health and Wellness Army because you love health and life and you love
If you dont want to be a
casualty in the CODEX Vitamin War, join up now! We need you and your friends and
family and your friends friends because this is a non-combatant war with
unthinkable numbers of casualties if we dont fight it well and
How do you enlist and what
are your duties?
1. Go to the 6 Easy
Steps page at www.HealthFreedomUSA.org/action and take each of the action steps and contact
Congress with the click of a mouse to tell them we are watching and they need to
protect our health freedom and our law. . One of the Six Easy Steps is to make a
donation. Wars cost money. We need money for a public relations campaign, for
lobbying costs (legal ones, not bribery), we need money to support the legal
challenges which we will bring to protect our health
We dont get our support from
Big Pharma. We get it from you. A lot of things are different in this war. In
this one, you pay to fight!
2. Shout it from the
rooftops! Direct everyone you communicate with to the Natural Solutions
Foundation site, www.HealthFreedomUSA.org. Most people havent heard the declaration of war

legal foothold. Sound the alarm, wake the neighbors!

widely as you can and ask every recipient to do the same.
c. Tell your favorite radio
talk show that you think we should be on his/her show. We do several shows a

e. Ask health writers in
local and national papers to cover the story.

alternative or holistic health professional, explain how CODEX is threatening
their practices. Send them to our website, www.HealthFreedomUSA.org.
