Plus Senator Hatch:& My Congressman & Senators:

FDA Must Do More than Pay Lip Service to Opposing the Vitamin Proposal at CODEX!!:

They Must Immediately STOP helping the Drug Cartel build "CONSENSUS" on the issue by participating in the drafting of "discussion papers" and other activities that the American people have never been consulted on and have had no opportunity to review.

In Agenda Item #10 of CCNFSDU 2000, (Agenda for the Berlin Codex Mtg)

FDA AGAIN broke US law by participating with the German government in drafting a discussion paper clearly intended to BUILD CONSENSUS in the CODEX MTG in order to BYPASS the US DOJ and the US Congress and the will of the American people. The discussion paper includes FDA's Draft Guidance Document to US Industry on "Significant Scientific Agreement" over which they're currently being charged with contempt of court

Grocery Manufacturers of America have filed a legal petition with FDA demanding the immediate withdrawal of this "GUIDANCE DOCUMENT FOR SIGNIFICANT SCIENTIFIC AGREEEMENT" Since they're being charged with contempt of court over it,see they're CLEARLY trying to make an end run here around the will of Congress, the will of the courts, and even around the US DOJ! (See

In '98 at Codex, FDA ignored a letter signed by 5 Members of Congress, including Chairman Burton of the House Goverrnment Reform and Oversight hearing by putting a non peer reviewed paper on the table that never underwent a public comments period See "Letters from Congress", "NAS Paper" "Rebuttal" (Dr.Rick Malter's rebuttal has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine

See videofootage of Dr.Yetley, US Codex Vitamin Delegate ignoring Congress, and see the German Chair of the Codex Meeting force me to turn my camcorder off,And see GS Odin of Nutrient Cariers Inc, who FDA UNJUSTLY Raided in USA and who has since moved his business to New Zealand bitch about this while standing on street corner in Berlin with Dr.Rath's Huge Anti Codex Hanging Banner in background at: at (Scroll down to load video clips)

Please read Dr.Rath's open letter to the American/Canadian health food community at

Also, he has a webcam in Berlin aimed at his antiCodex Billboard in Berlin at and he also has the text of Gary Null's antiCodex article which was published in the September Penthouse----and other interesting material!

In the 1947 Nuremberg War Crime Tribunal several managers of Hoechst, Bayer and BASF were convicted of mass murder, slavery and other crimes against humanity. Telford Taylor, the lead US-Prosecutor at the Nuremberg Tribunal concluded: "Without the support of IG Farben the Second World War would not have been possible."

All deliberations on Codex Vitamin Proposal must CEASE Immediately! FDA Must STOP breaking US Vitamin law at Codex-must do MORE than pay lip service to defending US law against harmonization!FDA MUST STOP HELPING GERMAN DRUG CARTEL BUILD CONSENSUS!

EC Pre Codex Mtg Press Release on Vitamins and Minerals in Food Supplements: May 10,2000:

Library Press releases

Brussels, 10 May 2000

Consumer safety and choice are paramount in new rules on vitamin and mineral food supplements

The European Commission adopted a proposal for a Directive on Food Supplements setting out harmonised rules for the sale of vitamins and minerals as dietary supplements. Informed consumer choice and safety are the key concerns driving this Commission initiative. The proposal responds to an increase in the use of pills and capsules as diet supplements and to varying national rules and attitudes to the proliferation of these products. The objective of the proposal is two-fold.

First, to set out a general framework and safety rules for vitamins and minerals in the European Union. Second, to give the consumer detailed information with labelling such as recommended daily consumption, a warning about exceeding this limit or a breakdown of contents of minerals and vitamins.

"We must be clear that a varied diet remains the best solution for a healthy development and life," said David Byrne, EU Commissioner for Health and Consumer Protection. "These food supplements mainly serve to compensate for inadequate intake of essential nutrients by certain people or specific population groups, or, for some, to increase their intake of such nutrients. Labels on these products must give consumers adequate and clear information about how to use and how not to use them. For those who find they require supplements, we must make sure that the chemical substances used to produce vitamins and mineral supplements are safe and subject to independent scientific assessment. These principles of food safety and transparent information as outlined in the White Paper on Food Safety apply here as they do to all other food products."

Under the newly proposed rules, labels on, for example, bottles of vitamin pills will have to include a recommendation for a daily dose, a warning about possible health risk in case of excess use, and a statement that the pills should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet. Claims that the product can prevent, treat or cure illness are prohibited. Any language suggesting that a varied diet does not provide the necessary amounts of essential nutrients is equally prohibited. Pills sold in packaging, which resembles that of pharmaceutical products, must carry the statement "This is not a medicinal product".

The proposed Directive includes a positive list of chemical substances authorised for the production of vitamins and minerals following their scientific assessment by the Scientific Committee for Food. The proposal also foresees that maximum and minimum levels of vitamin and mineral content in the daily dose of food supplements will be set.

The proposal for a Directive on Food Supplements is part of the package of measures announced in the Commission's White Paper on Food safety adopted earlier this year. It is based on article 95 and has to be agreed by the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers in co-decision. It is intended to enter into force on 31 May 2002, allowing the marketing of products complying with the directive as of June 2002 and prohibiting the marketing of products which do not respect its rules by June 2004 at the latest.
