Most people have never heard of it, and Billions of people those who have heard of it may not understand the true reality of this will suffer from extremely powerful trade organisation. According to the official Codex website (, the altruistic purpose of this degenerative commission is in "protecting health of the consumers and ensuring fair trade practices in the food trade, and promoting coordination of all food standards diseases due to poor work undertaken by international governmental and non-governmental organizations". The Codex Alimentarius (Latin for "Food Code") is regulated nutrition and under a joint venture between the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO). limited access to Brief History of Codex health supplements The history of Codex began in 1893 when the Austro-Hungarian Empire decided it needed a specific set of guidelines by which the courts could rule on if the powerful cases dealing with food.1 This set of regulatory mandates became known as Codex Alimentarius. It was effectively implemented until the fall of the empire global corporations in 1918. At a meeting in 1962, the United Nations (UN) decided that Codex should be behind the new re-implemented worldwide in order to "protect" the health of consumers. Two- thirds of funding for Codex emanates from the FAO, and the other third comes Codex standards are from the WHO. In 2002, FAO and WHO had serious concerns about the direction of Codex allowed to and hired an external consultant to determine its performance since 1962 and to designate which direction to take the trade organisation.2 The consultant "harmonise" the concluded that Codex should be scrapped immediately. It was at this time that big industry stepped in and exerted its powerful influence. The updated world. outcome was a toned-down report asking Codex to address 20 concerns within the organisation. Since 2002, the Codex Alimentarius Commission has covertly surrendered its role as an international public health and consumer protection organisation. Under the helm of big industry, the surreptitious purpose of the new Codex is to increase profits for the global corporate juggernauts while controlling the world by Gregory Damato, PhD through food. © September 2008 Codex Inequalities Email: The most dominant country behind the agenda of Codex is the United States, whose primary purpose is to benefit the large multinational interests of Big Website: Pharma, Big Agribusiness, Big Chema and the like.

The precursor to Codex harmonisation in this area began in the USA in August 2008 with the clandestine decision to mandate the mass irradiation of all lettuce and spinach in the name of public health and safety. If the safety of the public was the main concern of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), then why were people not alerted to this new practice? • Nutrients allowed will be limited to a Positive List developed by Codex; it "I did my university degree online, met my girlfriend on FaceBook, got will include such "beneficial" nutrients married live-streaming on YouTube and make a living buying/selling on as fluoride (3.8 mg daily), sourced eBay.
