Anti-Codex Campaign

Worldwide Vitamin Freedom For All

Don’t allow yourself to be fooled by the agents of disinformation and confusion

During the closing months and weeks of 2009, our Foundation received numerous enquiries from people wanting to know whether Codex would “go into global effect on December 31, 2009”. Citing claims they had seen on a website belonging to Rima Laibow and Albert Stubblebeine, they expressed concern that the use of vitamins and other natural health therapies would be prohibited worldwide after that date.

Stop Codex!

Stop Codex!

To protect their lucrative global markets in patented drugs, foods, food additives and agricultural chemicals, pharmaceutical and chemical multinationals are abusing national governments and international organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. As a result, the WHO and FAO are co-sponsoring the so-called "Codex Alimentarius Commission", which is trying to draw up global standards to protect the interests of these multinationals.

New York University Law Review Criticises Codex

A paper published in 2006 in the New York University Law Review, a respected academic journal, examines the increasing prominence and power of international institutions through a study of the Codex Alimentarius Commission.

Codex: What Is It And How Does It Affect You And Your Health?

Codex is not an easy subject to get to grips with. With over 20 committees meeting on an annual basis, and published reports comprising a total of over 1,400 pages in 2005 alone, most people are blissfully unaware of the extent to which its activities affect their health. Read on to discover the bigger picture behind the Codex Alimentarius Commission's support for the "business with disease".

The 29th Session of the Codex Alimentarius Commission took place in Geneva, Switzerland, 3-7 July, 2006.

Codex meeting in Ottawa: Business as Usual, or "Stunning Victory" for Health Freedom?

May 1-5, 2006, saw the thirty-fourth meeting of the Codex Committee on Food Labelling (CCFL) take place in Ottawa, Canada. Along with the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU), CCFL is one of the main Codex committees whose work is increasingly threatening the future of natural healthcare and health freedom. Reporting on the meeting, Rima Laibow and Major General Albert (Bert) N. Stubblebine III (U.S. Army, Retired), founders of the so-called Natural Solutions Foundation, curiously chose to describe the outcome as having been a "Stunning Victory" for health freedom, despite the fact that this assertion has absolutely no basis in fact. So, what really happened?

World Trade Organization ruling on GM foods signals danger for DSHEA

Shortly prior to the filing of three GM trade complaints against the EU, the Codex Intergovernmental Task Force on Foods Derived from Biotechnology submitted reports to the Codex Alimentarius Commission, recommending the adoption of four global guidelines it had drawn up regarding GM foods. The Codex Alimentarius Commission subsequently adopted these four guidelines as new global standards.

Codex and Health Freedom – Be Wary of the 'Instant Experts'

There is currently a significant amount of inaccurate and misleading information circulating on the internet about Codex and other related health freedom issues, much of which would appear to have originated on the website of the so-called Natural Solutions Foundation. Whilst the Natural Solutions Foundation's Medical Director, Rima Laibow, claims to have carefully studied more than 16,000 pages of Codex documentation, the content of her articles and the nature of her proposed strategies strongly suggests otherwise. The following article may therefore help you to sort the facts from the fiction.

The Worst Is Still To Come

November 2005 saw the 27th meeting of the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU) take place in Bonn, Germany.

Codex Alimentarius and
the GM Threat

Codex has developed various guidelines related to GM foods, amongst which is one which is designed to “provide a framework for undertaking risk analysis on the safety and nutritional aspects of foods derived from modern biotechnology” - in effect defining the manner in which GM foods shall be deemed to be “safe.” The text does not, however, address the environmental, ethical, moral or socio-economic aspects of the research, development, production and marketing of GM foods. As far as Codex is concerned then, so long as GM foods are deemed to be “safe” there is no reason to prohibit their sale anywhere in the world.

Miracle in Rome?

The Natural Solutions Foundation reported after the July 2005 meeting of the Codex Alimentarius Commission in Rome that a "miracle" had occurred, and that the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) had expressed "significant displeasure with the anti-health approach to nutrition taken by Codex over the past 4 decades". In the following article we attempt to set the record straight, and describe how the Natural Solutions Foundation's assertions are largely either mistaken or exaggerated.

Codex Alimentarius Commission
Meeting, Rome 2005

During the first week of July 2005 the Codex Alimentarius Commission met in Rome, Italy and, as widely predicted, agreed to adopt the controversial Guidelines for Vitamin and Mineral Food Supplements as a new global standard. However, in its desperation to adopt these guidelines the Commission blatantly ignored its own Procedural Manual rules and in so doing hammered the final nail into the coffin of its remaining credibility and legitimacy.

Codex Guidelines for Vitamins and Minerals – Optional or Mandatory?

March 2004 – The Codex Alimentarius Guidelines for Vitamin and Mineral Supplements are a joint attempt by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to formulate one single standard governing the sale of food supplements that can be applied throughout the global market. Under the guise of free trade 'harmonization' the Guidelines are being drawn up by the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU), where vitamins and minerals are defined as foods. This committee meets in Germany once every year, usually in November.
