We who controls food, controls mankind.
The Earth Summit Statistics meeting in 1992 revealed that farmland in the U.S. is over 85% micronutrient depleted - the situation with farmland in other continents was no better. This means that although that land can produce good-looking vegetables and fruits (aided by the use of large doses of pesticides) those vegetables/fruits contain no micronutients essential for human health. Small wonder then that vast numbers of people worldwide are taking vitamin and mineral supplements and herbal preparations.
This may soon come to an end. If by 31st December 2009 there has been no legal challenge to a little known UN Trade Commission known as the 'Codex Alimentarius' health food shops and pharmacies and other outlets will have to stop selling vitamins, minerals and any herbal preparations that claim to improve health. This is of course all done under the guise of consumer protection. In fact the 'top guy' for the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses, a Dr. Rolf Grossklaus has stated that 'nutrition is not relevant to health'. Dr. Grossklaus managed to get nutrients to be declared toxins in 1992.
The Vitamins and Mineral Guideline (VMG) is designed to permit only ultra-low doses of vitamins and minerals and to make clinically effective nutrients illegal. This will mean that those of us who buy vitamins and minerals at the moment will either have to buy multiple containers to reach the current doses we are taking, or the Health Food Shop we are buying our supplies from will go out of business. Guess who will still be producing the 'harmful' vitamins and minerals we are no longer allowed to buy without a prescription?
If you are concerned about your health, the health of your family and your children and grandchildren, I urge you to at least visit this website, and if you live in the USA, click the link that says Take Action - Sign the Citizens Petition. This is the last chance the USA has to get out of the supposedly 'binding' regulations made by Codex Alimentarius, for Europe and other parts of the world it seems it may already be too late.
