Where CODEX Is Going - A Tool to Squelch Completion

Bill Sard's tongue and cheek press release really drives the point on CODEX home.

This clearly demonstrates how the media panders to the pharma Mafia to brainwash us, hence

"The strange thing is that most of us will ignore massive side effects and deaths form conventional medicine but will not tolerate the slightest problem with alternative approaches!"

The fact that almost no one is dying from supplements is and has never deterred them to keep mindlessly follow the Mafia money....

Dear naive people of the world, who believe CODEX is just a guideline for reference: Here is what the press release is going to say next year



BONN-GERMANY- July 1, 2005- Health officials of the World Health Organization, meeting under the auspices of the international trade body known as CODEX ALIMENTARIUS, established international standards for safe upper limits for vitamins and minerals in dietary supplements today. The safe upper limits were established with a margin of safety so most if not all consumers will not experience side effects from mega doses of nutrients in vitamin and mineral preparations. The new upper limits serve only as guidelines and do not have the force of law.

The guidelines establish 2000 milligrams as the upper daily limit for vitamin C to prevent consumers from experiencing diarrhea, DNA damage and potential iron overload, 10 milligrams for vitamin B6 to avoid numbness in fingers, 1000 mcg for folic acid to avoid masking of a vitamin B12 deficiency, 2000 IU for vitamin D to avoid liver toxicity and calcium overload, 200 IU of vitamin E to avoid increased risk of mortality, 90 mcg for selenium to avoid systemic toxicity and 2000 mg for calcium to avoid constipation.

The US Food & Drug Administration says it may soon adopt the CODEX dosage guidelines into its labeling requirements for dietary supplements, mandating the upper limit be included on all such products. Quackwatch, a watchdog organization, says the guidelines are long overdue and the upper limits should be required on all product literature produced by dietary supplement companies. Senator Bob Finch says he will soon introduce legislation that will require the upper limits to be included on all dietary supplement labeling.

Under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, manufacturers of supplements do not need to prove the safety and effectiveness of their products to the FDA prior to market introduction. There has been an outcry to regulate the industry which has produced such health disasters as the recent deaths associated with use of the weight-loss supplement ephedra.

Frank Fostrom, representing a consortium of insurance companies who underwrite product liability contracts for dietary supplements, says his company will drop all contracts with dietary supplement manufacturers who don't comply with the new guidelines. Fostrom estimates more than 70 percent of dietary supplement companies now exceed the upper limits in their products.

Mary Korbiskie, a 78-year old retiree from Wahooska, Wisconsin, who weighs only 98 pounds, says she is pleased to hear of the new guidelines since experienced diarrhea from taking high-dose vitamin C which caused her to become dehydrated. Sam Jorkrum, a pharmacist from Hooterham, Mississippi, says he constantly hears from customers who are experiencing problems from overdosing on vitamin pills. He also welcomes the new guidelines. "Consumers think more is always better. That isn't true when it comes to unregulated dietary supplements."

John Swoosher, another retiree from Hanson, Arizona, said he had no idea he was wasting his money taking 5000 mg of vitamin C a day until he read a bulletin by the National Institutes of Health that said more than 200 mg of vitamin C per day is excreted from the body and is of worthless value. He said he now just takes a Centrum tablet that provides adequate but no mega doses of vitamins.

A spokesperson for the American Medical Association said a multivitamin is recommended for all Americans to fill in gaps in their diets and that a low-dose pill meets the needs of nearly all Americans without fear of side effects from overdose. ####
