CODEX

Posted by Mary on July 21, 2003 at 02:06:13:

I just sent copies of a couple of letters/articles on Codex to the editor and CEO of WorldNetDaily.com and a man by the name of Henry Lamb of Freedom.org asking for their assistance in letting Americans know what the pharmaceutical industry and Durbin, etc. are up to.

I got both of these pieces from this website, thanks Walt!

One of the letters was written by John Hammel of International Advocates for Health Freedom. (These were copied from Misty's website by Walt, I assume).

Both WorldNetDaily and Mr. Lamb are politically conservative. They seem to be very concerned about telling the truth about what goes on in our government, etc. At first, I thought it might be a waste of time to contact them thinking that perhaps they would take the side of the Pharmacartel because it's big business. But the supplement industry is also big business. So, we will see.

I spoke to an executive of a large health food store chain the other day. When I asked him if he knew that health food stores are in jeopardy of being shut down, possibly as soon as 2 years, he said he didn't know about it. I told him I'd bring him some info on Monday (tomorrow). I tweaked my back last week and was in pain most of the week. I had just seen my chiropractor and wasn't prepared to give him written information.

Interestingly, I noticed at one checkout stand, they had a pile of flyers that asked people to call their legislators about SB722 but as I watched, the cashier wasn't drawing the customer's attention to it and the customers didn't see them. I only observed 3 customers. I didn't feel well so I didn't stick around long. Hopefully, the cashier was inserting a flyer into each customer's bag.

Kudos for the reconnaisance, Mary. it's good you saw flyers on S722 at the HFS, that means word is getting out.

It's an uphill battle, most health food store operators count on the NNFA to represent their interests, assuming nothing can happen to them. Of course, the "shut down" will not be a mandate to retailers, but a decimation of product lines that destroys the ability to make a profit. Same difference. Fortunately, John says the NNFA is waking up to the threat, which only indicates how close this is getting.

I was talking to the guy who runs a HFS here in Toronto, and I asked him what he thought of the new Natural Health Products Regulations just passed into law here in Canada. He (and his otherwise knowledgeable partners/staff) had no idea what I was talking about. The tv/newspapers had hardly any mention of it, and of course did not elude to any controversy over the new reg's. It's amazing the ptb got this through without more people taking notice.

it's the same here in the states, with more customers aware of the issue than the store owners. the media is in the hip-pocket of the pharmas and other conglomerates because of all the advertising dollars. that's why i listen to PBS for the real story, and more balance.

Thanks, Roy.

The PTB have had nearly 100 years (1911 Flexner Report) to perfect their stealth legislation skills!

Namaste`

Thanks, Peter.

I went back to the health food store yesterday and took some printouts taken mainly from this website. This time the store flyers were no longer at the checkout counter but in a rack outside and another rack inside the store. I took a few out and approached some customers. I asked them if they knew anything about SB722 or CODEX. They all said they weren't interested. I certainly wasn't going to push it but I was flabberghasted. What the heck is going on, any way? Do people have to hear it on a radio show or on TV before they will lend an ear??? Unbelievable!

Mary, it's not an easy issue to get across to people, but at least you tried. don't give up!
