Codex Alimentarius - Ian R Crane
Having spent the past twelve months investigating Codex Alimentarius, I am deeply disturbed by the almost total lack of awareness (or even interest) with regard to the implications of this pernicious global Commission, particularly amongst those most affected by the excesses of this restrictive legislation. In the words of the National Health Federation[i], the aims and objectives of Codex Alimentarius are as follows: * Only low-potency, “me too” supplements available that will do nothing for your health. * All or most foods genetically-modified. * Beneficial supplements unavailable or sold by prescription only. For many people, this agenda is so outrageous, they cannot believe such goals are achievable; yet this may well be the reality as soon as 31st December 2009, if the Codex Alimentarius Commission continues to disregard input from those who offer a counter perspective to the combined forces of Big Farmer & Big Pharma.

We Become Silent - The Last Days Of Health Freedom
International award-winning filmmaker Kevin P. Miller of Well TV announced the release of a new documentary about the threat to medical freedom of choice. 'We Become Silent: The Last Days of Health Freedom' details the ongoing attempts by multinational pharmaceutical interests and giant food companies — in concert with the WTO, the WHO and others — to limit the public’s access to herbs, vitamins and other therapies. 'We Become Silent’ is narrated by Dame Judi Dench, the noted UK actress who has won multiple Golden Globe awards, an Oscar, and a Tony for her on-stage work.
Dr Robert Verkerk is an internationally acclaimed expert in sustainability. During the course of his work over the last 22 years, he has focused on a diverse array of issues ranging from environmental protection to reducing pesticide and synthetic chemical inputs in homes and in agriculture to the promotion of sustainable health care systems.
He spent some 10 years as an academic at Imperial College London, first as a student, undertaking both his Masters and PhD degrees there, before going on to some 7 years as a postdoctoral Research Fellow. He has worked extensively in Australia, Africa, Central and South East Asia, and has regularly acted as an advisor to governments and development agencies. In 2002, he founded the Alliance for Natural Health (ANH), a pan-European and international, non-partisan, not-for-profit campaign organisation dedicated to positively shaping the regulatory environment to allow the future development of natural and sustainable health care.
The ANH has become one of the most prominent forces in this field through its implementation of a diverse range of strategies based around the application of 'good science and good law'. Dr Verkerk is a patron of the College of Naturopathic Medicine.

It is, in part, its long drawn out timescales for the development and guidelines and standards that makes Codex Alimentarius guidelines and standards so problematic.
