I know some of you will be familiar with this, for others you may not be aware of what parliament is about to do in your name.  Codex Alimentairus is a law designed to hand over the control of natural remedies to the pharmaceutical giants.  One more attempt to regulate us - with potentially dire consequences.   Unless we take this last opportunity and act now we will not be able to buy vitamins or health/nutritional supplements without a doctor's prescription - they will be banned from 31st December 2009.

You may think this can't happen, you may think why haven't I heard about this before. The reason is that  there are vested interests, giant multinational pharmaceutical companies, and its not in their interest that you know about and oppose this.  They and our lawmakers in Europe are banking on public apathy.  Despite considerable pressure already exerted our government is still planning to implement this law - UNLESS THERE IS MASSIVE OPPOSITION IT WILL GO AHEAD.

Like many health and safety matters this was started with good intentions, in 1962 by the United Nations,  to establish international free trade foods but has become a major threat to our civil liberties and freedom of choice.

As the song says: YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'VE GOT TILL ITS GONE

The thing that comes into force on 31st December is the last part of a European Union Directive on Food Supplements, not the Codex Alimentarius which is still under discussion. Although the wording of the Codex Alimentarius on food supplements is based on that of the EU directive, they are separate things. Politicians could quite truthfully say they are not implementing the Codex (which because they are not, yet) whilst going ahead with the EU Directive.

I think you need a differently worded petition that refers specifically to EU Directive 2002/46/EC on Food Supplements.

Thanks for the clarification, not my petition - I'm just helping to publicise it-as yet another example of my free choice being reduced.
