Never heard of it?
You and most of the rest of the world.
It's worth starting to listen out.
The Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Health Organization created the Codex Alimentarius Commission in the early 1960s to set standards for food safety and to "harmonize" the laws of member nations.
"It was created to promote food safety in international trade. It is on the brink of becoming an Orwellian bureaucracy - far worse than the worst fantasies of the one-world conspiracy theories." Article by Henry Lamb
"Currently, compliance with the complicated and destructive regulations of CODEX ALIMENTARIUS is voluntary but can be enforced by trade sanctions imposed on the World Trade Organization. In July, 2005, these regulations will become mandatory for all WTO members ... once it gets here, it will be illegalto buy, sell, recommend or use any but 28 ultra-low dose nutrients, natural supplements, herbs, enzymes or other natural treatments whether you are a licensed health professional or not. The only legal health option left will be the pharmaceutical one." Health Warning: Codex Alimentarus is Coming
These regulations, which have been passed quietly and without effective public notice, have grave and devastating impact on health freedom. Here in Australia they have already been approved. Many valuable healing herbs are now restricted or illegal. A sinister subtle takeover.
A further attack on ... well ... nature.
And you thought witch hunting was over.
Now the earth is a witch and we still burn her
Stripping her down with mining and the poisons of our wars
Still to us the earth is a healer, our teacher, our mother
She's the weaver of the web of life who keeps us all alive
She gives us the vision to see through the chaos
She gives us the courage
It is our will to survive
From Burning Times by Charlie Murphy
