CODEX Strikes Again - Biodynamic Products Under Attack


As expected business at any cost under the pretence of safety of course. Here again is proof positive that regulations primarily exist to squelch competition.

More on CODEX is here.

Thanks to Croft Woodruff for alerting us all. This is extremely serious once allowed the flood gates will open for other such products please take action and spread far and wide....

On the need for the ELIANT petition campaign


The ELIANT campaign a commitment to civil society in Europe

Europe is like a new country whose legal framework is only now being created, as we can experience at the moment in the current ratification procedures for the new EU treaty. In former times the principle prevailed of: Whatever is not prohibited is allowed. Now, however, this paradigm has changed, and instead it runs: Whatever is not allowed is prohibited. This impacts on and threatens the existence of many initiatives whose products and services are informed by their personal and individual concerns.

3 examples can show how necessary it is to act now to preserve freedom of choice in Europe.

EU legislation has led to artificial vitamin supplementation of biodynamic infant foods (Directive 2006/125/EC dated 5.12.2006)
Current EU legislation impedes biodynamic agriculture and food production. In the field of food production it violates a basic democratic principle, which it normally vehemently supports: the consumer's freedom of choice.
An EU directive (Directive 2006/125/EC) has led to a situation in which producers of baby and infant foods manufactured under the biodynamic guidelines of the Demeter cultivators association, are forced to add vitamins to their products. This "compulsory vitamin supplementation" conflicts with the aims and approach inherent in ecologically produced and processed products. The consumers of organic and biodynamic products expect these to be produced naturally and processed in an eco-friendly way. Above all, they should not contain additives that do not naturally belong to them.

Trading of anthroposophic medicines is not regulated at EU level (Directive 2001/83/EC)
In summary we can say that currently under European and national law there are, in most cases, no legal framework conditions at all for the most important anthroposophic medicines. Particularly at risk are the specifically anthroposophic remedies such as the so-called "-doron" preparations, and the medicines given in other ways as oral/external applications (e.g. ampoules).
Extract from the article by Peter Zimmermann MD. The whole article can be found at:

Education is also affected
Christopher Clouder, director of the European Council for Steiner Waldorf Education (www.ecswe.org) says: The danger is a future consolidation which could detrimentally affect parental right of choice, in the same way that we have seen in the medical and agricultural sectors. To prevent this we need a stronger voice for our concerns in Brussels.

It is necessary to collect 1 million signatures to legally safeguard these initiatives in Europe
