Stopping the CODEX Juggernaut - NewsGrabs Thursday 14 May 2009

CODEX: Why your health depends on stopping it
Codex is not just about nutritional supplements, although that is an important aspect. In fact, it is the primary political battlefield where the war is being waged about who will regulate and control the global food supply, from field and stable to table.

As a result of Codex rules, those vitamins and minerals that would compete with medicines would require a doctor's prescription. The European Union has already adopted Codex-type regulations that went into effect across Europe in 2005.

I am linking this article because Codex is a juggernaut ready to crush healthy nutrition. With its general anti-supplement and anti-nutrition bias, Codex is a tool of the Chem/AG industry giants. Nevertheless, I do not agree with several of the more dire predictions in the linked article. While Codex and supplement laws in general are a real problem, there has been a well run campaign to exaggerate what is happening as a consequence of Codex, perhaps in an effort to discredit any serious opposition to Codex.

Particularly the section of the article headed "Some Codex standards" is filled with exaggerated, either false or heavily twisted, claims of what Codex will cause and when. Many of those exaggerations can be traced back to the reporting of Rima Laibow of the "Natural Solutions Foundation". Personally, I do not believe that our aim of preserving freedom of choice in health is served by this kind of reporting. Why invent things when reality is worse than we ever dreamed?

Research finds kava safe and effective
'We've been able to show that kava offers a natural alternative for the treatment of anxiety, and unlike some pharmaceutical options, has less risk of dependency and less potential of side effects,' Mr. Sarris said.

In 2002 kava was banned in Europe, UK and Canada due to concerns over liver toxicity.

While the three-week trial raised no major health concerns regarding the kava extract used, the researchers said larger studies were required to confirm the drug's safety.

'When extracted in the appropriate way, kava may pose less or no potential liver problems. I hope the results will encourage governments to reconsider the ban,' Mr. Sarris said.

Poverty and Food Insecurity in the Developing World: For Us, Tolls the Bell
Blaming food insecurity and hunger on poverty [essentially, inability to earn sufficient cash to buy food] has been the official position of most governments and of international institutions like UN-FAO, World Bank, IMF, and CGIAR. Unfortunately such notions serve powerful economic and political interests that perpetuate hunger, malnutrition, diseases, illiteracy, ignorance, urban slums and filth and rural poverty globally.

Those who influence the developmental agenda of governments seldom pause to think that farmers and gardeners can always grow enough food to stave off hunger and malnutrition from less than 200 square meters of land; with about 2000 square meters they can feed themselves quite well with some surplus.

Codex Committee Divided On GM Labeling
To label GM foods or not to label them - Canada, the United States, Argentina, New Zealand, and Australia say no labels should be required, as consumers "would not understand" and wouldn't buy GM.

To balance this, the European Union, Brazil, the African countries, Saint Lucia, and all of the International NonGovernmental Organizations think labeling GM foods is a good idea. The battle is between industry and exporting countries on the one side and consumers on the other, and it is still unresolved. It is normal for Codex discussions to draw out over several years. The most vigilant and persistent side usually wins.

Natural Health Federation is representing nutrition-conscious consumers, and is of course arguing that GM labeling is needed.

Video: When Over the Counter Turns Lethal
There is a very real threat to your life lurking in your home right now. Widely believed to be one of the safest products on the market, yet anywhere between 100 to 500 Americans are dying every year from it. And tens of thousands more are being injured.

Federal investigator could review UT researcher
Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee, sent a letter to the University of Texas System in September raising concerns that child pharmacology researcher Karen Wagner had not properly disclosed her financial connections with drug companies.

According to Grassley's research, GlaxoSmithKline paid Wagner, who is the director of child and adolescent psychiatry at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, more than $160,000 between 2000 and 2005. She only reported $600 to UTMB.

During two of those years, she worked on a major study on the company's drug Paxil - research that has been widely criticized for over-promoting positive findings while downplaying heightened suicidal thoughts and behavior in adolescents.

Almost 30 percent of cancer studies report conflict of interest
According to the authors, randomized clinical trials that assessed patient survival were more likely to report a survival advantage associated with the intervention when a conflict of interest was present. These trials are the foundation by which drugs, technologies, diagnostic tests, etc. get approved for use in the clinic and therefore shape the way oncologists practice medicine.

This analysis revealed that conflicts of interest exist in a considerable number of clinical cancer research articles published in important journals. The authors noted that "attempts to disentangle the cancer research effort from industry merit further attention, and journals should embrace both rigorous standards of disclosure and heightened scrutiny when conflicts exist."

Merck’s Ghostwriters, Haunted Papers and Fake Elsevier Journals

ADHD drug Strattera – 115 reports of deaths
Janne Larsson reports
87 cases of death with Strattera as Primary Suspect Drug reported to the FDA, 2004 - September 2008.

115 cases of death with Strattera involved reported to the FDA 2004 – September 2008 and in Periodic Safety Update Reports from Eli Lilly and the UK medical agency MHRA.

48 children and teenagers have died, 25 of them committed suicide.

The responsible medical authorities (FDA in US, UK MHRA in Europe) have not done an independent investigation of all the cases of death – they do not even have a compilation of these. They have so far relied on data and analysis from the manufacturer Eli Lilly, who is only interested in one thing: To explain away all instances of death and increase profits.

“HIV” tests are self-fulfilling prophecies
Rarely if ever do the media mention that a positive “HIV”-test may not signify active infection by a pathogenic immune-system-destroying retrovirus. The research-level literature tells an entirely different story, however; it states accurately that no “positive” “HIV”-test — antibody, antigen, or nucleic-acid (“viral load”) — diagnoses active infection.

The unwary layman would be — or should be — further shocked upon discovering that “HIV” tests are to an alarming degree self-fulfilling prophecies. The fundamental reason for this is that there is no gold standard for any of these tests; there is not even a universal standard for what counts as “positive” on any given test.

Genocide Then and Now
It is a scientific fact that ARV drugs are some of the most toxic substances that can be given to the human body without killing it immediately. The extremely harmful side effects of these drugs include drug-induced immune deficiencies, the failure of various organs of the body and death. These side effects are listed in every patient information leaflet required by law to be attached to ARV drugs.

The promotion of ARV drugs in the developing world, particularly across the African continent, is a heinous plan for genocide.

H1N1-H5N1 Flu Outbreak Implicates Anglo-American “Vaccine Pipeline”
“No other group in the world takes H5N1 Asian flu infected chickens, brings them to Europe, extracts their DNA, combines their proteins with H1N1 viruses from the 1918 Spanish flu isolate, additionally mixes in swine flu genes from pigs, then ‘reverse engineers’ them to infect humans. The end product that Reuter’s describes could only end up in Mexico via the United States from Britain in care of the CDC. Ruben Donis at the CDC had to have sent them to Novavax, where Rick Bright’s team is now implicated in a conspiracy to commit genocide—the mass killing of people for profit.”

Novavax’s preliminary report in the Journal of Virology, with co-authors from the CDC in Atlanta, was posted online at the precise time Mexican officials began reporting deaths from this new strain of flu that is clearly an unprecedented recombinant of at least three H5N1 and H1N1 strains. Novavax’s Johnny-on-the-spot vaccine was prepared under the CDC’s “fast track” approval process speciously using these three strains never known to infect any human in Mexico.

Media Censoring Lethal Side Effects Of Flu Remedies
Rumsfeld’s Tamiflu is worse than worthless. It kills people. Japan has banned it. Even the FDA—after review of nearly 600 cases of neuropsychiatric events reported by patients on Tamiflu and 115 cases of neuropsychiatric events by patients taking Relenza—has warned that Tamiflu’s label be strengthened to note: “In some cases, these behaviors resulted in serious injuries, including death, in adult and pediatric patients.”

Swine flu: The social impact
Thankfully some realism seems to be creeping slowly into the media, with the UK Guardian last week saying that “around the world, public opinion seems to be shifting from fear of a pandemic to scepticism as to whether the virus poses a significant threat.”

It's worth remembering that we're infected with many different viruses on a daily basis, but our immune systems deal with them. Often, we're not even aware that we've had a virus at all, such is the effectiveness of the immune system in normal non-compromised indiduals.

Low-energy bulbs: a not-so-bright idea (PDF)
Prof Rémy Prud'homme of Paris University
A simple calculation shows that changing bulbs will cause the annual total of CO² emissions to double, passing from 3 million tonnes with filament bulbs to more than
6 million tonnes with low-energy bulbs. Reducing purchasing power by 7 billion euro today in order to emit twice as much CO²?!

Wikipropaganda On Global Warming
Wikipedia Is A Stunning Example Of How The Propaganda Machine Works

This is not a new article, but the situation at Wikipedia with self-appointed guardians of scientific orthodoxy snuffing out any hint of other points of view, is a continuing problem not only for information on the science of global warming but also in physics theories and many other areas. Under the guise of preventing information with a slanted point-of-view entering the internet encyclopedia, the editors are really imposing their specific point-of-view as the "consensus" of knowledge...

More information out there...

There is much I cannot cover but other sources for this kind of information exist and are active.


Dr Mercola's health blog, Mike Adams' Natural News and the One Click Group in the UK have good health information. The Dr Rath Foundation is also putting out a weekly collection of health related news. Here is the link to their Newsletter Archive.

The Alternative Medicine Yahoo Group and the healthfreedom ning group are places to discuss and exchange information on what is happening in the world of natural health.

For the influence of electromagnetic waves from radio, mobile phones and other radio emitting devices, check out the emr-updates group on Yahoo. Genetic modification and issues around agriculture and foods are reported on the Organic Consumers Association site.
