Hi Anonymous, I was under the impression CODEX was alive and very much kicking in the US. The press I pick up seems to be suggestant, that it is more inforces there than in the EU currently. I was under the impression the were also starting to revaccinate meat chain with things banned in the 50's for causing infant mortality and many other problems. I know that legislatively you are completely correct in the lagality of our status, hence my comment regarding medication from the Dr's. Also though you realise that many viable nutritional sources are being taken from many angles.
I spent sometime looking at the codex stuff on the UN site and it is a labyrinth, not just a maze. You start down one route and realise you are in another section without really finding what you were looking for. It also seems odd the site is set up to chase you to dead ends and then start finding your way again. Its not in any form many will comprehend. I found it reallyhard getting through information. I'm normally quite happy to get my teeth in to research but it felled me. I think it is set up like this is to confused and feel like you aren't getting anywhere so you give up. THMPD is all part of the process or restriction. If we could aks them to stop spray aluminium etc we'd have at least a chance of being able to grow and reatin something for ourselves.
I was also under the impression in the US, that the restrictive part about growing your own had already come in to effect. Though no enforcement yet happening. I do wonder how you police such though?
I'm shoked that the UN are trying to enforce this on everyone. Its not a good idea. European laws are alredy restricting natural supplements. Even simple things such as mint will be licensed and regualted. We lost so much already sue to this being snuck in under a different acronym, but its basically codex by the back door. Certain things that are sold to us as supplements are actually viable food souces and manty should be in our diets as just thins rather than a regualted supplement. If a company cannot afford the licensing we'll lose it simple. We already suffer a great deal down to this. Compounds that are great for us get pushed away because of bigger companies and pharm's having money to veto. Its not on and not fair. Choice is something we are all entitled to. Soon it'll be illegal if you dont take what the Dr's orders at this rate. This already happens in some countires. We are very lucky to be able to "self medicate" and I think this is choice that cannot and should not be taken away.
Hey veronica, I wouldnt be so sure of US products, Codex was implemented there long befor ewe started the process here. You have arsenic contamination in may areas, I'm sure you've heard about american long grain rice? I'm also being led to believe that importing will be restricted also but the UN site baout this is a labyrinth
I'm sorry I should have proof read that :(
Anonymous, if you have a look at the stuff they're producing on the UM site about this, you'll see for yourself that YES! Officially you wont be allowed to grow your own herbs.......... Its already the case in the US, how it would be policed I just dont know. With everythign I've read this seem more baout nutrinial restriction rather than will be of nay help. Many of these "supplements" are in fact viable food sources. many of these things could be bought as "veg" etc and added to our diet more safely. I appreciate that in some ways this would stop you buying a bottle of something and ensuring exactly what is on the label is inside, but it means smaller people with good products will be whats lost and again we'll eat whats fed us by large companies and pharm's. Considering we know that lots of foods can cure many symptoms and also reversing things that cost the NHS lots in drugs that could be dealt with via diet. If we had good clean food with the right nutrition we'd have less instances of cancer for a start. Psoarisis can bemanaged with diet as opposed to drugs, sleep disorders, again many can be dealt with through a good diet or natural things such as hops, lavender, milk, low gi foods, cherries too. The evidence is overwhealming and I cannot understand why we're are giving free rein to be medicalted by companies that what profit not people??
