CODEX???

Anyone know what this is about?

URGENT…Don’t leave without reading this…

Imagine this…you’re headed to the grocery store, list in hand,
you get a great parking spot in front of the store, you walk up
to the front of your favorite food outlet and a nice looking
person with a big smile asks “My I please see your grocery
prescription list.”

You’re next comment would be…excuse me?! The nice person again
says “Your prescription food list…the one that your doctor gave
to you.”

Sounds stupid, right?

Well, there’s international legislation that will be meeting next
Monday, Nov. the 1st that can possibility take away your freedom
of choice to purchase nutrional supplements and vitamins. It’s
called the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods For Special
Dietary Use.

The US is sending their FDA representatives to the meeting next
week in Bonn, Germany and you have an opportunity to voice your
opinion and greatly impact the decision to hold off on this
legislation.

Here’s a copy of an e-mail that we received from the
International Advocates for Health Freedom that you must
read…it has specific instructions on what you can do today.

----Special Email Notice----

IAHF WEBMASTER: BREAKING NEWS, CODEX, ALL COUNTRIES
IAHF List:

We can COUNT on South Africa to GET TOTALLY IN THE GERMANS and
EU’s FACES on Monday at the Codex meeting.

The big UNKNOWN is whether or not we’ll get enough OTHER
countries to back SOUTH AFRICA UP to KNOCK CODEX BACKWARDS from
step 7 to step 3.

If ENOUGH of you WORLD WIDE go to http://iahf.com/index3.html and
click on the FIRST ITEM marked ALERT- SEND CODEX FORM LETTER TO
DELEGATES and send the form letter to the US and all other
countries marked in BOLD on the drop down list of countries, we
just MIGHT pull a rabbit out of the hat… but its up to YOU to
DO THIS and to MASS FORWARD this alert around the world
immediately…

I have been feverishly making some KEY international calls for
the past several hours to exhort key people around the world to
ACT in mass forwarding this alert. We expect MASSIVE ACTION in
the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand and ALL OVER EUROPE
but you MUST do YOUR SHARE, RIGHT NOW.

We ARE BUILDING MOMENTUM here folks, but if we want to ride this
WAVE into the SHORE SAFELY to STOP CODEX- I need each and every
one of you to ACT IMMEDIATELY.

ONE LAST THING TO AMERICANS:

NO TO FINALIZATION OF CODEX VITAMIN STANDARD ON NOVEMBER FIRST IN BONN

"President Bush: on Monday, November 1st, an unelected FDA
bureaucrat who you exercise control over will be the US Delegate
to the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods For Special Dietary
Uses Meeting in Bonn, Germany.

Her name is Dr.SCHNEEMAN. It is IMPERATIVE that you REIGN HER IN
and ORDER HER and her superiors at FDA to OPPOSE FINALIZATION of
the global trade standard for vitamins and minerals IN ACCORDANCE
WITH CURRENT US LAW, or you can REST ASSURED that you will lose a
HUGE number of votes on ELECTION DAY.

The reason is simple: In 1994 with passage of the Dietary
Supplement Health and Education Act, the American people voted
with their FEET against a tyrannical FDA rulemaking effort that
threatened to ban consumer access to dietary supplements.

Congress received MORE MAIL on this health freedom issue than on
ANY issue in the HISTORY of the US Congress- even MORE than they
received during the VIETNAM WAR.

At CODEX in Bonn on MONDAY, unless Dr.Schneeman of the FDA
STRENUOSLY OPPOSES finalization of the standard for VITAMINS AND
MINERALS- you will LOSE VOTES due to the perception that you’re
helping the FDA to destroy current US law by setting us up for
the HARM-onization of our VITAMIN LAWS to a mindlessly
restrictive emerging international standard.

YOU MUST REIGN SCHNEEMAN IN, and you must be AWARE that IAHF has
sent a LEGAL DEMAND LETTER to FDA Commissioner Crawford and to
Schneeman as well as other FDA officials threatening them with a
Title 42 lawsuit if they should violate our civil rights by
failing to uphold US law at this Codex meeting.

You will lose MILLIONS of votes if you fail to heed our warning
on this matter…

PLEASE MASS FORWARD THIS ALERT!!

IAHF HAS TWO KEY PEOPLE EN-ROUTE TO CODEX RIGHT NOW…
BOTH WILL GIVE US EYE WITNESS ACCOUNTS FROM BONN ON MONDAY…

ANYONE WISHING TO MAINTAIN THEIR ACCESS TO DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS
MUST ACT IMMEDIATELY, we’re at STEP 7. COMPLETION IS STEP 8. IF
ENOUGH OF YOU ACT, WE CAN KNOCK IT BACK, we did it once before
when it was at step 5, but I can’ t do it alone…

Please, after you FORWARD THIS to friends and family world wide,
get on the PHONE and call them to alert them to this ALERT.

This time its for ALL the MARBLES. If you have a genetic need for
the dietary supplements you use, if you have a medical condition
and would be in dire straights if we lose this fight, you must
work 50 times harder to make these calls and mass forward this
because if you don’t, some of you could lose your LIVES. We’re up
against a EUGENICS agenda here, an intentional effort to cull our
numbers but we don’t have to take it laying down…

I’m SURE NOT!! IAHF is busy organizing an
EMERGENCY anti Codex meeting MODERATED BY JONATHAN WRIGHT, MD to
be held at the ACAM MEETING in San Diego November 19th. A FLYER
about this mtg will be put on the IAHF website soon, and I’ll
need your help distributing it widely.

We’re holding this EMERGENCY MEETING just in case we don’t stop
CODEX on November 1 in case we need a FALLBACK position, because
our ABSOLUTE last chance would be to kill ratification of the
standard in June in Rome at the meeting of the full Codex
Commission.

ACT, then FORWARD, PLEASE!!! The Life you SAVE, could be your OWN!!

That email I got (first post) made it sound really bad.

But maybe the governments are simply trying to reduce the number of bad supplements being sold.

Too bad no one really knows what’s going on.

Seems to be an urban legend:

T-Buck

Just curious if anyone knows whats up w/ Surge? How long is it out of stock?

Thanks!

Do you have a prescription?

We South Africans are rather necessary in the greater scheme of things… grin Yeah, support sounds good (in theory)…
