CODEX ALIMENTARIUS AND THE TGA (Aust).
” The TGA’s income is based on fees & charges
paid by users of its services, namely the
pharmaceutical industry in Australia.”
(Therefore Not Morally Enforceable.)
Lord Acton: “Power tends to corrupt,
and absolute power corrupts absolutely…”
“Are we to be hung out to dry – again?”
The TGA have tried to outlaw the growing of some medicinal wild
roadside weeds and garden plants previously – without success.
No dietary supplements sold as food can exceed potency dosages set down by the Codex Commission. Dietary supplements of higher potency are to be sold as “drugs” by pharmaceutical or phyto-pharmaceutical companies. Supplements without a recommended daily allowance (RDA), such as co-enzyme Q10, will be illegal to sell because they will be considered as “drugs”. ($ V health)
All new dietary supplements will be banned unless they have undergone
extensive Codex testing (via scientific risk assessment) and final approval.
(Too costly for small producers.)
Only supplements made from a list of 15 minerals and 13 vitamins will be allowed – in ultra-low potencies mirroring levels that were originally set during World War II to stave off malnutrition.
The Codex preamble expressly forbids the use of nutrients to
“prevent, treat or cure any condition”.
Herbs to be put under a closed committee of the WHO where they are now held to be “untested drugs”. There is only a short list of “approved herbs” that may be used for specific conditions. While some complex oriental herbal formulas may be permitted, most will not. Ayurvedic, Tibetan, tribal, Aust. indigenous and other traditional medicines that use herbs and natural substances to be forbidden in WTO Member Countries (Aust.) Herbal, shamanic and energy-based medicines are to be forbidden forms of treatment.
[Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II uses some of these.]
Genetically Modified organisms (GMO’s) to be legal in foods [unlabeled?]
Codex is to set permissible upper levels for pesticide residues, toxic chemicals, hormones in food and other environmental contaminants that may be many times greater than those advocated by chemical and pesticide industry lobby groups.
Codex mandates that animal feed can be treated with antibiotics, hormones and growth stimulants.
Codex Further mandates that the irradiation of food go ahead, despite the arguments of food safety experts.
Although the above list may seem extreme, it is difficult to have
confidence in the TGA based on their past performance, e.g
continuing support for fluoridation.

WHAT YOU CAN DO !
Do your web searches; complain to your Federal politician in writing, write to the newspapers; get on the radio; and most of all, tell ALL of your friends, and then remind them again and again !
It is working to restrict the $4 billion Australian supplements industry that is rapidly gaining markets over Big Pharma’s control of the medical industry.
Any of the above proposals if approved would cause:
More unemployment therefore more people on the dole
A loss of tax revenue to the Australian Government
The importation of more foreign goods
