CODEX: All food irradiated and no health supplements in 2 years!

I just posted a new question to the debate questions list. Vote for it if you feel the same as I do!
Of course we know how Ron feels about this...he has introduced 2 health freedom acts that would banish all this nonsense. He also wants us to be free from the UN. (and without the USA, would there even BE a UN?)

Question on: Health Care
As someone who KNOWS the value of eating fresh, raw produce, I am extremely concerned about the United Nations' Codex Alimentarius which has declared that ALL FOOD WILL BE IRRADIATED starting 12-31-09. Also, health supplements will be available by prescription only, and at a questionably effective dose. I am wondering, will you allow the UN to DICTATE to us Americans what kind of food we can buy at the grocery? Or will we be allowed our health freedom, such as it is?

Watch "We Become Silent"

I suggested this movie earlier. Go to www.welltv.com and click on the movie. It's funny but I watched this movie a couple of years ago before I really heard of Ron Paul. Well, guess who is in the movie? Ron Paul! Again, he is in a movie advocating freedom of some kind. This time it is health freedom. Excellent movie. People should pick up some copies and get it out to people.

Healthnuttie for Ron Paul

I am right there with you....

I have owned several Gyms and health centers in my area, and I am familiar with the UN's actions. They are hideous to say the least.

Codex, Food and Freedom

I've been a Ron Paul supporter since the mid '70s and the National Committee to Relegalize Gold. Lat year had the honor of being asked to make suggestions for Dr. Paul's Health Freedom platform statement.

Thanks for posting the piece on Codex Alimentarius (the World Food Code) and irradiation of food. This is not the only area in which Codex acts against freedom. For example, following the FDA's unconstitutional lead, Codex is meeting this week in Africa about Genetically Modified (GM) foods. The Market wants producers to tell consumers if products are GM free. The US, wanting to "protect" us from making "bad" decisions, wants to forbid truthful and not misleading advertising about GM status. Yes the US delegate at a previous meeting actually said that studies show consumers want this information and since the FDA "knows" GM products to be "safe" (without any meaningful testing...) the agency does not want US consumers to know GM status.

The same "logic" applies to labeling foods a irradiated, or organic (Codex has a history of denigrating organic standards too... and attacking nutrients... and etc.)

Our Supreme Court, on the other hand, in the 2002 landmark case of Thompson v Western States Medical Centers said,

"If the First Amendment means anything, it means that regulating speech must be a last - not first - resort. ... We have previously rejected the notion that the Government has an interest in preventing the dissemination of truthful commercial information in order to prevent members of the public from making bad decisions with the information. ... Even if the Government did argue that it had an interest in preventing misleading advertisements, this interest could be satisfied by the far less restrictive alternative of requiring ... a warning ... that its risks were unknown."

So, what can we do (besides electing Dr. Paul, of course!)??

I urge everyone to join the Natural Solutions Foundation Health Freedom eAlert email list at http://www.healthfreedomusa.org

As one of the trustees of the Natural Solutions Foundation, I can assure you that we will continue to represent the health freedom conscious consumer, by educating members of Congress and other decision makers about health freedom (we've generated over a half million email messages to Congress and the agencies over the past year) and also at international bodies such as Codex, where my co-trustees, Maj. Gen. Bert Stubblebine (US Army, ret) and Dr. Rima E. Laibow, MD are right now attending that Codex committee meeting on GM foods in Africa.

Restore the Constitution!

RP Flyer on Heath Freedom?

Is there a specific "Vote for Ron Paul; he'll defend your health freedom choices" flier available?

I know RP has his Health Freedom statement page on his website, but, I'm looking for something I can quickly run off and hand out to people as they enter/exit the health food store -- something that directly connects voting specifically for Ron Paul with defending our Health Freedom choices.

Can anyone point me to such a flier?

Do you know of/see the health freedom oriented SlimJims?

Aaah! No, I didn't know about these! Thx, missdavenport. I'd love to get my hands on some!

In the meantime, is there, also, a PDF flier? Something I can print on my own, quickly, and not have to wait around for (as I would have to for slim jims)?

You mean like this?

Codex is NOT invulnerable!

Codex, governement, WTO, MSM is not invulnerable. We can attack their weakness's with our strengths. Watch this video...more about codex, a CITIZEN"s petition (not an ordinary petition), constitutuional lawyers...etc...

Here's how to fight codex

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5266884912495233634

People! We the people have a voice. We can fight bad legislature in our numbers. We are NOT insignificant! Why? Through education, exposing all bad legislatures, we can inform each other, our friends, family, and break their SECRECY! This is how we win! RP wins 2, if we act as a single minded group against all powers to suppress our freedoms! Trust me they are out, been out there, and will continue to legislate us to death...

Education is the key to WINNING!

Here is the link to a "Citizens Petition"

http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/index.php?page_id=184

A Citizen’s Petition is a legal means to focus a government agency’s attention on an issue of concern to you. Once a Citizen’s Petition has been entered, a “docket” to debate is opened and public comment is accepted. A Citizen’s Petition does have one thing in common with the more familiar ones, though. Any number of people can add their names to it and become co-petitioners.

The current pro-Codex Alimentarius policy of the U.S. Codex Office is in violation of U.S. law. With our Citizen’s Petition, we are asking the U.S. government to change its policy on Codex Alimentarius to comply with U.S. law.

The Natural Solutions Foundation Citizen’s Petition is a ground-breaking legal approach to compel the US Government to amend its Codex Policies, hold public hearings and move from a pro-illness Codex position to a pro-health one.

If we don’t like the response, the law allows us to proceed to court.

So far, about 30,000+ people have joined our petition. And what’s more, three members of Congress have written a Congressional Letter in support of our Citizen’s Petition.

Flowr76 thanks! You should start a thread on various forums and

Flowr76 thanks! You should start a thread on various forums and ask people to spread and sign the petition.
I'm sure it would be received well on dp by Michael too. He knows that it is part of Dr Paul's platform.

You are very knowledgeable and we need people like you to help get the word out. Thanks again!

Tower of Babel

The U.N. is a tower of Babel that needs to be pulled down. God will do it if we will pray and act the part of men for our nation!

Yes!

...

UN Depopulation

This is just another step the UN is taking to help depopulate the world. We should be strangely thankful they're irradiating the food, vs eradicating it.

it seems the solution to everything has become, do it yourself - looks like i need to buy my own farm now.

chill out

we have more important issues on our plate

... and i'll eat whatever i want.

I am willing to fight for your right

to eat whatever you want, but you are not willing to fight for our rights to eat what we want??? Food is a number one issue on someone's plate. Try doing without it for a year.

Not if the government gets

Not if the government gets their way you won't.
Some of us have been cured by supplements in America and in Europe. Why are you being so destructive on this issue? You obviously have not had serious health crises and that would account for your laissez faire attitude.

You may be correct on many issues. But I can assure you that you are wrong on this one. Email Dr Rima and she will fill you in.
Or call me, like I said. I will let try to educate you.
At least quit replying for the people who did NOT KNOW about CODEX and have a right to know. What is your purpose for trying to squelch this knowledge from getting out? Do you work for the FDA?

I fully agree with you

I fully agree with you Missdavenport, I use a number of supplements every day and attribute my continued good health to them. If not for them, I'd get sick more often and be less productive and happy. I rarely ever use prescription drugs and really only use them as a last resort or when there is no natural alternative.
The CODEX thing really concerns me and others I know. If they ever restrict access to vitamins and supplements here in this country, I will work my butt off and won't rest until I help to get it repealed somehow, and I know I won't be alone and will have many others with me.
Its sad, but most people in this country rely on prescription drugs for everything, they don't care about their health, they don't exercise, have a poor diet, they just do what their doctor recommends, they don't research health related things on their own.
Years ago I started studying health related things on the internet and found out about mercola.com and newstarget.com and after that, I found a whole new world of natural healthy living without drugs and have been better off ever since.

No way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is something that I whole heartedly believe that NO government has the authority over what we put in or on our bodies. Sorry! We'll see about that!

Thanks for your support; hard to believe some stick heads in

Thanks for your support; hard to believe some stick heads in the sand on this one.

More hysteria - do some homework please

I eat organic. I even grow my own vegetables. And I dont mind irradiation - I prefer it to pesticides in fact, and I prefer it to reduced yields creating higher prices that impact both my budget and the quality of life in struggling countries where starvation is already a problem.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_irradiation

Do some homework, yo. Unless you're trying to harvest seeds from fruits and vegetables, food irradiation is a Good Thing(tm). Ionizing radiation in the form of gamma rays doesnt mean your food is radioactive. This isnt alpha or beta radiation, we're not talking free-flying neutrons ripping apart nuclei - it's just high-freq radio waves killing off the micro-organisms that cause spoilage.

While I oppose any American treaty that requires us to conform to UN law on irradiation, I also oppose any American law that requires or prevents any individual store owner from using this technology if they so choose.

If you dont like it any one store, shop somewhere else. If no stores will provide this service for you, start your own. If you can't, well then.. grow your own.

-Van

-Van

Yo yourself. This is NOT

Yo yourself. This is NOT just about irradiation. It is MUCH MORE encompassing than that. If not then many hardworking people are wasting a lot of time. Please sign up and become informed http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/index.php

Just because you do not take supplements it does not mean others of us do not depend upon them. (My health history is too long but suffice it to say that I am a "survivor" because of health supplements administered both here and abroad. And I do not want that right to disappear.)

Codex

This Dr. is fighting hard to protect our health freedom. Maybe she would support Ron Paul?

http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/index.php

She has supported Ron Paul for a long time. In emails to me

She has supported Ron Paul for a long time. In emails to me she has the same laments that we do - it is so HARD to get the message to OM so that the poor people of America can hear it.

She loved the idea of getting a famous/celeb to step up against CODEX, but has had no success as have none of us.

She is a really great person fighting for all of us. We love you Dr Rima!

here is a great short documentary on this called "We Become silent." It is narrated by Judy Dench and even Mel Gibson is in it. So, many celebs do understand this problem.
