Subject: South Africa Kicked in Teeth at Codex Meeting in Montreal: Vitamin Consumers World Wide Told to "Drop Dead"
Date: 17 May 2004 16:51:07 -0000

IAHF List: Last week the Codex Committee on Food Labelling held a meeting in Montreal, Canada. The work of this committee overlaps with the work of the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Use.

Vitamin consumers world wide owe a debt of gratitude to the South African Codex Delegation which was represented at this meeting in Montreal by Antoinette Booyzen and Anthony Rees.

Going in to the meeting, Booyzen and Rees had hoped to trigger an African backlash against Codex, identifying the agenda clearly as a global genocide initiative, but after being lied to by all these countries who promised during the lunch breaks to support South Africa, when the time of recknoning came- all of these countries (along with the rest of the world including the criminal US, Canadian, Australian, English and New Zealand governments) turned their back on the South African proposal which you can read here:

As you can see- South Africa proposed a revision to the Codex General Guidelines on Claims (which currently prohibits any mention of foods serving to treat and cure diseases) based entirely on existing scientific evidence from peer reviewed scientific journals which attest to the healing properties of dietary supplements in treating a variety of diseases including:

Asthma, Arthritis, Adrenoleukodistrophy and other metabolic disorders including maple syrup urine disease, phenylketonuria, etc; hypertension, osteoperosis, migraine, osteoporosis, migraine, artherosclerosis, cholesterol reduction, constipation, bacterial infections, cardiac arrythmias, acne, allergies, alzheimers disease, anxiety and stress, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, breast cancer, thyroid deficiency, parkinson's disease, HIV/AIDSs, Glacoma, influenza virus, diabetes mellitus, depression, all the classical nutrient deficiency diseases: scurvy, berri berri, rickets, kwasiorkor, etc

As you can see, South Africa proposed that CODEX bring its work into sync with current scientific findings, and that the Committee on Nutrition make changes to its preamble reflecting these current scientific findings to allow for health claims to be made for foods and nutrients.

As you can see, South Africa noted that foods and nutrients are MORE EFFECTIVE than pharmaceutical drugs, which they correctly noted only address SYMPTOMS without addressing their root CAUSES.

During the coffee breaks and lunch breaks of this week long meeting whenever Booyzen and Rees met with the representatives of the 7 other African countries present at the meeting to try to secure their backing, they were PROMISED support, but last Wednesday, when they made their historic proposal, they were torpedoed even by their fellow Africans because these corrupt people did the bidding of their former colonial masters from Europe.

Prior to this meeting, the South African delegation had hoped to not only secure support from the other 7 African countries, but to then secure proxies from all the rest of Africa to bring with them to the next Codex meeting of the Committee on Nutrition and Foods For Special Dietary Uses in Bonn in November (South Africa leads the African Union), and in so doing, they had hoped to counter the effort of the European Union to ram a draconian finalized Codex vitamin standard through to completion.

They had hoped to have economists draft a white paper attesting to the economic wisdom of basing national health care systems on nutrition and prevention as vastly preferable to the existing allopathic medical model, and they'd hoped to get the rest of Africa behind these efforts.

It remains to be seen what will happen now. I hope South Africa goes ahead and PRODUCES this white paper, and I hope President Mbeki sends a letter to the United Nations CONDEMNING the Codex "process" as unscientific, undemocratic, and GENOCIDAL because thats EXACTLY what it is.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: We can't win at CODEX, we can ONLY win INDIRECTLY by things we do OUTSIDE of Codex which IMPACT Codex.

Right now, the ONLY thing I can see that will have even a CHANCE of stopping this global genocide agenda that threatens to destroy consumer access to dietary supplements is the Alliance for Natural Health's lawsuit to overturn the EU Food Supplement Directive in the European Court of Justice in Luxemborg.

ANH CAN WIN this lawsuit. The bureaucrats who crafted the EU FSD had a poor working knowledge of EU law and they put themselves on very thin ice. ANH has the best lawfirm in Europe in their corner, the first firm to ever succeed at overturning an EU Directive, but the Alliance needs donations to be able to PAY this firm.

Some of you heard Robin Falkov discuss this issue on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. I appreciate Robin's solid effort as a member of the IAHF Speaker's Bureau. I'd like to go on the George Noory show myself, and have emailed Noory's producer to that effect.
I've been on the front lines addressing this issue since 1996 when I was the first person to call it to global attention, and could easily do a two hour program on it via which I could thoroughly help people to grasp what is going on and why they must act.

If you'd like to help me get on the George Noory show, please contact Noory's producer at and fill him in on what I'm telling you in this email. South Africa's experience in Montreal deserves widespread attention because they have totally exposed the whole crooked agenda.

Please forward this to as many people as you can and urge them to sign onto the IAHF email distribution list at Tnanks for your assistance- this is a TRUE grass roots effort.
