Overview of Codex Alimentarius
by Rima Laibow, M.D.
At the request of the United Nations (UN) in 1962, the World Health Organization (WHO) and Food and
Agriculture Organization (FAO) took on the joint role of running and administering the Codex
Alimentarius Commission (CAC) to establish standards and remove barriers to trade for all food and
food products. Having declared that nutrients are toxins from which we must be protected, the CAC
has been busy establishing enforceable international guidelines for upper limits of nutritional
supplement dosing. Codex has goals that affect every person in the UN’s 170+ member nations,
including the United States. As a tool for furthering these goals, member nations are urged to adopt
Codex standards and guidelines as domestic policy. The United States has already committed itself to
doing so despite U. S. law which prohibits this compliance.
The World Trade Organization (WTO) has adopted Codex as a standard for the adjudication of foodrelated
international trade disputes and has the authority to enforce Codex standards through
implementation of harsh economic sanctions on non-Codexcompliant member nations. Pre-existing
international treaty laws dictate that WTO rulings will override the domestic laws already in place in
its member nations and, in fact, the WHO has successfully taken both states and the U. S. government
to court in the U. S. to force changes in our domestic laws eleven times. This means our nation’s hard
won laws that give you access to over-the-counter, natural health supplements will become
meaningless. Codex’s original mandate to remove barriers to trade and assure a clean food supply has,
under the influence of private, economically-driven multinational pharmaceutical, agricultural and
chemical corporations, self-expanded far beyond its original mandate. The result is a body of highly
dangerous and restrictive policies that threaten to become domestic law in the U. S. and, as such, are
a threat to your health and freedom.
The FDA has stated explicitly that its goal is complete "harmonization" with Codex and, in order to
bring that about, international regulations i.e., Codex will be given preference over domestic ones!
(Federal Register, 10/ 11 /95)
If Codex gets its way, as it already has in the EU, we can expect that, ultimately, only 18 or so dietary
supplements will be available over-the-counter in doses which are, by design, far too small to have any
discernible impact on any human being since codex classifies nutrients as toxins. High potency
nutrients will not be available either with or without physician’s prescription since these molecules
and compounds will be forbidden under any circumstances. The big surprise? Once in the hands of
pharmaceutical companies, consumer supplement costs are expected to more than quadruple. This
has, in fact, been the experience in Europe where this process is already underway and micro-dose
nutrient prices have increased 10 to 100 fold or more (e.g., in Norway a bottle of zinc lozenges which
previously cost $2 now costs $54; in France 12 Vitamin C tabs of just10 mg cost $117; while 10 Vitamin
E caps of only 10 IU each cost $110).
Australia and the European Union (EU) are in the process of enacting harmonized Codex policies that
restrict consumer access to nutritional supplements. America is next. Though Americans value
personal freedom, the fact Codex meets infrequently (and almost always offshore) and is bogged
down in highly technical language that is difficult to understand has resulted in many Americans
being unaware of this threat. The nearly total media blackout on Codex and its activities helps to
keep the U. S. uninformed and therefore, pliant.
While there have been rare serious adverse reactions to nutritional supplements during the past
decades, (usually when taken far in excess of the recommended dosing), numerous severe and even
fatal reactions to drugs (usually when taken at the recommended dosing) occur every day and are the
fourth leading cause of death in hospitalized clients in the United States when properly
used. When improperly used, they are, in fact, far and away the leading cause of death in
the United States. Even so, drug deaths are very likely underreported. Drugs are
inherently dangerous; nutrients are not. This fact makes it clear why the drug culture
needs to eliminate all access to natural health options, including nutritional supplements,
in order to expand and intensify its influence and thus its profitability. Healthy people
take fewer drugs and thus are poor customers.
The global pharmaceutical powers -that-be have already purchased a large piece of the
lucrative global nutritional supplement pie but the considerable size of this pie keeps the
hugely profitable pharmaceutical profit -share-pie from reaching its maximum size so the
competing nutrient pie must be destroyed. Though unable to patent a natural substance,

Bishop’s Castle walks – October 2008
The team: NA, RE, SF, NM, MS, AW, SW
Monday, October 6. Party, minus Simon arrives at White Grit at 1.45 pm. Tea and cake then departure at 2.30 pm for two-hour, 4-mile (7 km) stroll to Corndon Hill via Stapely Hill and Mitchell’s Fold stone circle. Sunny start then cloud and mist. Incident near summit of Corndon Hill when Tony decides to do a Fosbury flop over a five-bar gate. Lies motionless in the recovery position for a time. Relief all round at sign of movement. Luckily no concussion as AW’s head avoids rocks and settles in sheep ordure. Wash and brush-up for AW at Brook Cottage before leaving for ‘The Magnolias’ (including brief, unscheduled detour to show Steve the centre of Bishop’s Castle). Enjoyable dinner at Three Tuns.
Tuesday, October 7. Wet. Party assembles at Mitchell’s Fold car park for circular walk via Priest Weston and Rorrington. Depart at 10.20 am. Steep descent to Marrington Dingle provides a good test for Simon’s hips. Arrive Whittery Bridge at 1.15 pm. SF and NM leave party and divert to Chirbury to find a taxi. (Neil’s mince pie appears to work wonders with the village post-mistress who arranges for her husband to provide transport back to Mitchell’s Fold.) Remainder of party continues on a shortened version of the walk, back to Priest Weston via Bank Farm and Ridge Farm. Route indistinct in places. Sudden squall results in wet knees for AW. Arrive Miners’ Arms at 3.15 pm. SF and NM already there. Publican declines to open pub before 4 pm so party departs for refreshments in Bishop’s Castle. Walked a total distance of 6 miles (10 km). Evening meal at the Castle Hotel. Table proves too narrow and second incident occurs when one member sweeps a full pint glass into his lap. A wet end to a wet day for AW.
Wednesday October 8. Bright and sunny. Simon opts for a relaxing day and heads for Croft Castle near Aymestrey; the rest of the party head for Church Stretton. Depart Ch Stretton CP at 10.30 am, heading for Caer Caradoc via Helmeth Hill woods. Reach summit (459 m) at 12.30. Admire views of Wenlock Edge, Long Mynd, Wrekin and the Clee Hills. Descend to Comley and the quarry. (Britain's earliest trilobites were discovered here in the 1880s by Prof Lapworth of Birmingham University. Trilobites lived at the bottom of the sea during the Cambrian period some 550 million years ago.) Head west across flood plain to Dudgely farm. Incident occurs when a member of the team neglects to use rubber sheath provided for straddling electric fence. Attempts to crawl underneath. “Aaargh, it’s live!”
Sign warning of bull and calf in next field proves to be a false alarm. At railway line, Nick tests his cowboy skills by putting his head on railway line, and declares no trains. Train comes through seconds afterwards. Maybe NA should get ear syringed. Arrive Gogbatch for lunch at 1.30 pm. Peperoni given vote of no confidence. Gentle climb to High Park House where lady is attending to feller. Continue to Robin Hood Butts and refreshments at 3 pm (mince pies and Welsh cakes). Descend past waterfall into Carding Mill valley. Arrive Church Stretton car-park at 5.30 pm after 10.5 miles (18 km) of very enjoyable walking. Refreshments at ‘Six Bells’ where local remarks that the town has never been the same since the girls started running faster than their brothers. Evening meal at Three Tuns attended by Paul E who recounts his experiences on the 50-mile Long Mynd hike the previous weekend. Party decides to cancel Thursday evening booking at The Castle. Discussion about the following day’s walk and the logistics involved, using a dinner knife. Much confusion.
Thursday October 9. SW departs Magnolias for home at 9.15 am to pack in readiness for a Mediterranean cruise. Roger and Simon go to Plowden and leave Simon’s car there. Return to Magnolias where Jeff kindly agrees to take everyone to the gliding club on the Long Mynd. Mike and Nick sit on the floor and get numb legs. Set off on walk around 10.30 a.m., accompanied by Simon until Plowden. Rest of party follow Shropshire Way through Plowden Woods to Edgton. Path badly sign-posted. Picnic lunch at Edgton where Welsh cakes have developed new flavour, having been stored overnight in Mike’s lunch-box alongside his unfinished pepperoni. Proceed to Bury Ditches via Kempton and Walcot Park estate (Clive of India’s pad). Pheasants galore. Bull in field at Kempton provides a problem and diversion takes party along private drive. Arrive Bury Ditches car park where Simon awaits us. NA and RE proceed to the hill fort, which is believed to have been built around 1,000 BC. For the fourth time in the day we meet the same two Shropshire Way walkers who are heading for the Youth Hostel at Clun. They, too, found sign-posting poor, and got lost.
Manage to pack six persons in Simon’s vehicle for refreshments at Six Bells. Back there in the evening for dinner. Incident involving purloining of mint from plate. SF owns up to the theft and barm
