Nutricide – what is it?

How important are vitamins and supplements to you? Did you know that there have been several attempts in the past to regulate the dietary supplement industry, let’s look at how this whole idea started.

The Codex Alimentarius was created in 1962 as a trade commission by the UN to control international trade in food. Its initial intentions may have been altruistic, but it has been taken over by corporate interests, especially the pharmaceutical, pesticide, biotechnology and chemical industries. The World Trade Organization (WTO) supports sanctions against non-compliant countries that would receive huge financial penalties in the Codex Court.

One of the dangers of Codex is the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU). Dr. Rolf Grossklaus, a doctors who believe that nutrition does not matter to health. Dr Rolf is the “top guy” for Codex’s business policy, and he has stated that “nutrition is not relevant to health”.

So what stands in the way of Codex overcoming our vitamins? It is the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA, 1994), an American law that classifies our supplements and herbs as foods (which can have no upper limit on their use), adopted with unanimous congressional consent after massive grassroots support organized by health food stores.

The problem now is that Codex Alimentarius will go into global implementation by December 31, 2009 and $ 758 million will be spent on congressional lobbying by Big Pharma. There are congressmen who are trying to overthrow DSHEA and allow drug-friendly free play for Codex. If protection laws such as the DSHEA are destroyed, the sanctioning power of the autocratic WTO will take effect, and it will be impossible to get out from under the Codex Alimentarius. We can protect our access to high-strength nutrients and stave off a counterfeit food supply only by putting pressure on Congress.

Another interesting headline recently published says “The Bush administration has abruptly stopped a government program testing the levels of pesticides in fruits, vegetables and arable crops, arguing that the $ 8 million a year program is too expensive – a decision critics say could be made. It’s harder to protect consumers from toxins in food, this is from the Chicago Tribune dated September 27, 2008.

In short, the stage is ready to take away our rights to freely buy vitamins and put them under the control of pharmaceutical companies. This means much lower doses, higher prices and a prescription from a doctor. This also opens the door for chemical companies to increase the use of pesticides in crops that would be dictated by Codex.

Where is Congress in all this?

As we see with the recent events on Wall Street and rescue operations even when we the public aggressively oppose certain bills introduced to Congress approve them anyway. So what’s your guess about Codex? There is also a push to make it legal to prescribe cholesterol to an 18-month-old baby,

What is Nutricide? Here are two definitions:

Intentionally causing the death of a wealth of knowledge and information on the health-promoting and healing properties of herbs, foods and food components

To intentionally cause us to cause the death of a large number of people through nutrition manipulation

We all have our opinions on “why”, but I think we can all agree that this is not in the best interests of the average person. This would not be such a big deal if not for the declining nutrition in our foods. Our bodies can not get healthy on ding dongs and twinkies.
