Ian Cranes lecture on globalism and Codex Alimentarius. Part four.
CODEX 27 COMMITTEES
So Codex Alimentarius is a very complex structure. The codex consists of 27 different committees that covers a whole bunch of different aspects associated with the entire food chain. But there are two particular committees that really impacts on everything else. The nutrition-and food for special dietary uses and food labeling. These two committees means moving away from choice of organic food and away from the choice of natural healthcare. Here’s a quote which is a kind of summary on Codex Alimentarius:
”Codex is the political equivalent of the current toxicology manuals because it endorses and promotes for international trade and consumption in the whole wide world everything from pesticides to , genetically engineered foods and synthetic analogs for drugs and nutrients, in preference to bio-compatible natural substances”.
What we are talking about here is a process of gradualism. If someone say: we will have organic food in 2020. I would say they probably wrong. What the codex committees do – they are under phenomenal pressure from the pharmaceutical companies and the likes as Monsanto – they do it by gradualism, little by little. In France recently the media said: the number of acres dedicated to organic farming will increase. What they didn’t say was that the number of acres that was going to be handed over to GM-crops was going to increase three times the rate. One has to find what is not written.
PEOPLE STOPPED CODEX ALIMENTARIUS IN USA
Codex Alimentarius was started in 1962. What we are talking about here is organisations that have bottomless pockets. These guys got teams of people working on strategies to maximise the opportunities by the implementation of Codex Alimentarius. This is a real David and Goliath situation. Codex Alimentarius serves the interest of Big Pharma. And what is really a concern is the World Trade organisation would implement Codex Alimentarius using the Napoleonic law. What is the Napoleonic law? In the U.K. we have common law. That means that if something isn’t specifically banned, its ok. Napoleon code is the opposite: unless something isn’t specifically mentioned to be ok in the law – it’s banned. And the way the pharmaceutical companies works and the way the food companies work is what they trying to do with the codex committees is make the testing process so outrageously expensive that the only people who can afford to get things on the approved list would be the Monsanto’s and the pharmaceutical companies. Nobody else can afford to get through the rigorous tests. They nearly got away with this in U.S: in 1994. People was hitting the streets big time and there was rallying at the food stores. Right across the U.S. hundreds of thousands hit the streets. And they were protesting against the implementation of the Codex Alimentarius. It was kept out of the international media. So people in Texas that was protesting didn’t realise that people in other states was also protesting.
But people were writing to their senators. And eventually the senate realised that actually there was such an opinion here that they needed to do something about it. So the DESHA-legislation (Dietary supplement health act) was implemented in 1994. This put a ring-fence around the alternative food and industries in the U.S. So what did the Codex commission do? They turned their attention to Europe. So for the last thirteen years they been working on the basis that none of the european countries talks to each other. The British government says: we do whatever we told to do by the EU. Which is basically what has to happens anyway. Because the EU issues directives and regulations. And it they issue a regulation that is law. If EU issue a directive they say: ”ok, it doesn’t have to be law right now. We let you through a charade and making it look like you make the decisions. But you actually have to implement the legislation”. All the privatisation that’s going on, it’s not our government making the decisions about that. It’s EU-directives coming down the chain.
The way the World Trade Organisation operates is that they got a template in place in EU. They can then say to the rest of the world that this is what you have to do. And if you don’t do it, we’re going to start fining you.
Here is a quick summary of Codex Alimentarius goals and objectives. And this if from National Health Federation. The goals are:
- The international harmonisation of food.
- Abolition of organic farming.
- Introduction to GM-food and livestock.
- Remove of all ingredients labelling.
- Restriction of all natural remedies (includes all supplements, herbs, vitamins, minerals, homeopathic remedies, flower remedies etc)
LOW NUTRIENTS, LOW MINERALS..
People realised in this country that gradualism kicked in two years ago. The dosages have been dramatically reduced in some products. The dosages you can buy today in the U.K. are basically totally ineffective. This is the first step towards abolition. Codex is about unlabeled genetic and processed food. Which of course means low nutrients, low minerals, low vitamin values. All vitamins and supplements to be of low ineffectual dosages. And herbs and other natural health remedies to be classified as drugs.
The Alliance of Natural Health is actually fighting a case on behalf of a lady in France. She has been charged to be a criminal drug dealer because she was growing illegal herbs. The british government has been funding the research on genetically modified crop in this country. A newspaper states: ”GM-potatoes will be grown in this country in 2009”. there’s a dvd called ”The future of food”. It talks about how Monsanto has been selling the genetically modified seeds in the west of the U.S. Because the wind blows to the east. So they contaminate the farms. This article was from the Phil Agnell from Monsanto:
”Monsanto should not have to vouch for the safety of biotech food, our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the job of the FDA”.
Well we’ve seen how the Food and Drug administration deals with cloned meat. And who do you think paying for the FDA? This text was from Monsanto in-house newsletter:
”Agricultural biotechnology will find a supporter occupying the White House nest year, regardless of which candidate wins the election in november”.
