UNDERSTANDING CODEX ALIMENTAARIUS:
(Codex for short) means “Food Code.”
This world food code is a United Nations agency, jointly sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO). It has existed for nearly 50 years and its International Statute gives it a joint mission: protecting food safety and promoting world food trade.
It is supposed to do so by adopting voluntary Guidelines and Standards (defining foods in international trade) and its decisions are enforced through the World Trade Organization (WTO) which considers its Guidelines and Standards as presumptive evidence in WTO trade disputes.
It has become a creature [MONSTER] of the Bigs – Big Govt, Big Agra, Big Pharma – etc.
Consumer Protection? – Unfortunately Not…
The first step to understanding Codex Alimentarius is to realize that it has absolutely nothing to do with “consumer protection”, that’s propaganda.
“Codex Alimentarius” means “food rules” in Latin.
The organization was born in 1962 when the UN established the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) as a “Trade Commission”.
It was created to regulate, and thus control, every aspect of how food and nutritional supplements are produced and sold to the consumer. It is solely about trade and the profits of multi-national corporations. The more natural health products people use, the fewer drugs they use.
Codex is designed to protect Big Pharma
Codex is made up of many standards for every aspect of food.
