Proposed regulation of Nutritional Supplements
Today, Senator McCain introduced a bill that if passed will require prescriptions for all nutrients. Contact your senators and congressmen and also contact McCain. This has already taken place in Europe where you need a prescription for just about any nutrient in any amount.
EC: Thanks Tommye, We can't find a link to any bill with that date, but the Alliance for Natural Health web site has 2 interesting articles on the subject:

Did the Codex Alim. Law go into effect? And if so is that going to effect your website? I hope not, it helps me and alot of other people!
EC: Don't think there have been any new laws regarding Codex in the USA. Not need to worry about EC at this point!
Article that was just published today on from a UK health site:
Note: interesting summary of Codex, but annoying pop up ads!
Everyone should read this article about Senator Durbin's Senate Bill 510 (S.B. 510)!!
The Food Safety Bill That Would Make Us Less Safe
by James J. Gormley
October 7, 2009
According to the article, if this bill passes, it will:
">> Undermine DSHEA and move the U.S. one step closer to harmonizing our standards under Codex with those of restrictive regimes like the European Union. (DSHEA, or the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act, says that supplements are food and are safe for consumption unless proven otherwise - ensuring that millions of Americans are able to enjoy access to safe, effective and affordable dietary supplements).
>> Give the FDA inappropriate, and unprecedented, control over farms and direct-to-consumer distributors. If passed, the bills would charge facilities an annual $500 registration fee, require additional record keeping, and expand the FDA's authority to quarantine geographic areas for alleged food safety problems - all without significantly improving food safety.
>> Harm U.S. organic farmers by imposing overlapping regulations.
>> Hurt food supplements and health-food stores by imposing standards that are already covered by the AER (Adverse Event Reporting) Law, cGMPs (current Good Manufacturing Practices) and food facility registration.
>> Cripple local food co-ops, farm stands, independent ranchers and artisanal food producers by imposing unnecessary standards and unfair bureaucratic burdens...."

Question: WHAT IS CODEX ALIMENTARIUS GOING TO DO TO Earth Clinic and other similar sites? I am not sure that Codex Alimentarius includes the FDA plan (but I think it does) to pass a bill that makes it illegal to even transmit information on vitamins, minerals, herbals and supplements across a state line (this would include mail order catalogs on same). Would you all be effectively be put out of business since the internet crosses continents, much less state lines?
Would you financially be able to stay in business in if you had to keep the information contained within the state from whence it came? Is this the way they plan to destroy the internet? I was expecting it to arrive soon, but it just now occured to me that this could be the way they do it.
Now I wonder how they plan destroy our one source of information that I have come to trust? WND? It is internet. The bills they already have will cover health care help sites.
We might also want to alert these other health sites to the possibility and have them join in. I wonder if this question has even occurred to them? We need to get people awake and fast.

Thank you for Earth Clinic!
Regarding codex alimentarius, the site below seems to dispel any concerns....?
I'd like to make a suggestion here (as well as ask start up a discussion about a very dubious piece of legislation - Codex Alimentarius).
I was wondering if anyone out there who works in an industry that will be affected by this knows exactly what is going to happen at the end of 2009. Are many organisations going to be put out of business when this happens?
Authorities, who are apparently looking out for our health, are happy for us to go out and buy cigarettes, but are about to take away our freedom to buy vitamins legally! Is this really going to happen?
Anyway, my suggestion is to set up a page on Codex allowing people to share information and suggestions on other ways to obtain our illicit vitamins & minerals through food, herbs, nuts etc. I doubt that there's anything we can do to stop this. I signed a petition, but most people have never heard of Codex Alimentarius, and that is worrying!
Hi Ted! I stumbled on to this website and i am hooked!! I've been drinking the ACV for a month now and feel great! I take 2 tbs. 3x day in 8 oz. water! I even have my husband on it now to and he feels great also! I've lost 10 lbs. quit the white bread,sugar, sweets. I never thought i could do it but i did but anyway i love all your posts! I feel so blessed to have come across this site and cant believe whats going on in this country! That brings me to my question: In one of your posts to survival remedies is the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS for sure going into effect on Dec. 2009? And what is your background you seem to have all the right answers and even the cure to cancer! Ive been telling everyone about this site! My whole family died a few years ago my mom (LUPUS), my dad (BREAST CANCER) my brother (PANCREATIC CANCER) so im trying to stay healthy and take all the right precautions. God Bless You
EC: More about Ted on this page.

This is the first I've heard of this Codex Alimentarius.
12/14/2008: Ted from Bangkok writes, "...Anyway, I prefer to buy in bulk chemicals for a very good reason: the Codex Alimentarius, which stops the sale of all supplements and natural remedies begin on December 31, 2009. So you won't get any more supplements after this date. I haven't followed up Codex Alimentarius, but I do know their estimates for worldwide death is about 3 billion. 2 is from preventable disease like this one. It really helps to go to youtube and educate yourself this codex alimentarius"
I will be reading up on this. I wonder what Obama's position is on this. From the little I did read tonight, at the very least people must be made aware of what it would mean.
Hey i love your page but in order that we all maintain access to natural products you should motivate people to sign up against the codex.
Here is a reliable link where i also participate in order to push back the fake bill against supplements:
We should get as much people as possible to participate.
Is there anything you can do to notify more people of CODEX ALIMENTARIUS and how we can stop it. I know we can sign a petition at http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/
Does anyone else of something we can do? Time is running out for vitamins, organic farming, organic foods, natural supplements, herbs, alternative medicine etc. In a few months they might be ILLEGAL.
