The CODEX Update Page
Codex is trying to use the World Trade Organization to bring the European draconian laws to America, and the FDA seems to agree. This is from the FDA's own web site:
The harmonization of laws, regulations and standards between and among trading partners requires intense, complex, time-consuming negotiations by CFSAN officials. Harmonization must simultaneously facilitate international trade and promote mutual understanding, while protecting national interests and establish a basis to resolve food issues on sound scientific evidence in an objective atmosphere. Failure to reach a consistent, harmonized set of laws, regulations and standards within the freetrade agreements and the World Trade Organization Agreements can result in considerable economic repercussions. http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~comm/int-laws.html
What you can do:
Read about the CODEX Spin: http://www.iahf.citymaker.com/page/page/1794219.htm
Call the Whitehouse Comments line to complain. Ask President Bush to reign in Christine Lewis Taylor of the FDA who is clearly trying to set us up to lose in a WTO Trade Dispute whereby our dietary supplement laws can be harmonized to this mindless Codex standard. 202-456-1111
Call Congress to complain about the same thing via 202-225-3121, and when they attempt to regurgitate the FDA's spin on the issue (which is that this is a "non issue") tell them you're not buying it. Health freedom is at stake.
