IAHF List: Lets keep the ball rolling! Last night I was on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory, followed by Dr.Robin Falkov, Jon Rappoport, and Dr.Terry Grossman http://www.coasttocoastam.com/shows/2005/07/13.html to discuss the interconnection between the CODEX & CAFTA issues, and to get more people fighting back by letting their Congressmen know that if they vote for CAFTA, they'll be touching the THIRD RAIL!!
You can hear the archive of the show at the link above if you missed the show last night.
BIPARTISAN HEALTH ISSUE COVERS ENTIRE POLITICAL SPECTRUM---> Lets ROLL!
Just as in the early 90s during the campaign to pass the Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act in direct response to an FDA rule making effort that would have NUKED the supplement industry, today we ALSO have a large coalition of people from all walks of life, and all sides of the political spectrum involved in the campaign to kill CAFTA & to stop CODEX from blowing DSHEA out of the water.
The New American magazine just quoted me, and I forwarded their article to you a minute ago.
I welcome opportunities to get my message out via any venue, regardless of political leaning. Along these lines, I was recently published in a very liberal California based health food store magazine a few months ago.
Since I realize some of you will take a kneejerk reaction against the organization that publishes New American, and not go to their Capital Advantage site to send their form letter to Congress against CAFTA (even though I realize you oppose CAFTA) I am also providing my own form letter below.
I want you all to know that I am neither a Republican or a Democrat, but that I welcome assistance in this health freedom battle from EVERYONE regardless of country, age, color, ethnicity, religion, income, and political beliefs. If you oppose nanny state efforts to ban your access to the dietary supplements you choose to put in YOUR body which YOU feel like taking, then we're talking the same language.
A MESSAGE TO GIVE TO YOUR CONGRESSMAN's STAFF TO AVOID A LATE NIGHT MASSACRE
We don't need any late night massacres in Congress on this issue. Please call your member of Congress via the Capital Switchboard at 202-225-3121 and give them the following message, then send the form letter below:
"I am very concerned that President Bush may attempt to ram CAFTA through during a late night session of Congress when not many members are on the floor and present to vote. Please take pains to make provision to be able to vote even if you can't be present on the floor, and PLEASE VOTE NO!! I heard John Hammell on the George Noory Show on Coast to Coast AM on July 13th and he delineated the interconnection between CAFTA and the CODEX vitamin issue, and I'll be sending you a letter which outlines these concerns.
You should know that in 1994 more Americans wrote to Congress during the Campaign to pass the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 than any issue in the HISTORY of the US Congress, and if you vote for CAFTA, you WILL be driven out of office because International Advocates for Health Freedom and numerous allied organizations including the National Health Federation, National Coalition for Health Freedom, American Association for Health Freedom, Coalition for Health Freedom, and Alliance for Natural Health will ALL post your names on their websites for the PURPOSE of driving you out of office."
THEN- Send them THIS Form Letter & Forward This Email Massively:
To email this to your congressman, please go to: http://www.house.gov/writerep/
HR 3045- CAFTA BAD FOR DIETARY SUPPLEMENT CONSUMERS-
SPS LANGUAGE BURIED IN IT
THREATENS HARMONIZATION TO CODEX- VOTE _NO_ ON CAFTA
In 1994 vitamin consumers generated the largest volume of mail to Congress on any issue in the HISTORY of Congress when we passed the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994. CAFTA threatens DSHEA. On July 13th, John Hammell and several colleagues just discussed the connection between CAFTA and CODEX on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory reaching millions of concerned vitamin vitamin consumers http://www.coasttocoastam.com/shows/2005/07/13.html#recap
Today, CAFTA threatens to undo all of our hard work, and to set the USA up for harmonization to an excessively restrictive global trade guideline for vitamins and minerals just finalized on July 4th 2005 at the 28 General Session of the UN's Codex Alimentarius Commission.
The seeds of our health freedom destruction are sewn inside Section 6 of CAFTA where members are forced to form a Sanitary-Phytosanitary Measures (SPS) Committee for the purpose of insuring ONGOING HARMONIZATION of our laws under the terms of the SPS Agreement in the WTO Trade Agreement which CAFTA dovetails with. (See http://www.ustr.gov/Trade_Agreements/Bilateral/CAFTA/CAFTA-DR_Final_Texts/Section_Index.html
If you examine Article 3 of the WTO's SPS Agreement you will read the following words: "To harmonize sanitary and phytosanitary measures on as wide a basis as possible, members SHALL base their food safety measures on international standards, guidelines or recommendations."
(Codex sets the international standard for food safety, and they intend to fill in the blanks on allowed potencies at levels even LOWER than RDAs- see
Vitamin consumers drove many congressmen out of office who failed to vote for DSHEA in '94.
Any member of Congress who fails to heed our concerns about CAFTA and votes for this unconstitutional trade agreement anyway, despite how it sets us up for harmonization to Codex, and despite its continuing the failed policies of NAFTA which gave us our present $617 Billion trade deficit risks being driven from office. IAHF and allied groups including The Coalition for Health Freedom http://www.coalitionforhealthfreedom.org will be posting a list of any member of Congress who ignores our concerns. We urge you to watch Kevin Miller's excellent documentary on this issue at http://www.welltv.com
THANK YOU FOR VOTING NO- THE VITAMIN CONSUMERS OF AMERICA WILL REMEMBER HOW YOU VOTED ON THIS !!!
