From the January 2001 Idaho Observer:
TABD agree to harmonize international dietary supplement and vitamin regulations
by The Idaho Observer
Executives from U.S. and European interests who sit on the dietary supplements sector working group of the Trans Atlantic Business Dialogue (TABD) agreed on several key points that will aid the international Codex Alimentarius Commission in its mission to regulate public accesss to dietary supplements such as vitamins, minerals, herbs and botanicals.
TABD is an association of the most powerful 120 U.S. and European corporate interests that, with $1 billion per day changing hands, represents the highest-volume trade arrangement in the world. TABD promotes free trade concepts which allow its members to exploit workers and natural resources without being held accountable for the human misery or environmental degradation they leave behind.
At the sixth TABD CEO conference in Cincinnati November 16-18 both sides of the Atlantic approved the principles upon which they would continue discussions intended to increase their corporate profitability within the framework dietary supplement definitions and regulations being erected by global government.
TABD also determined that its next moves will be to establish uniform labeling requirements and practices, adopt uniform safe limit levels for vitamins, minerals and food supplements and to adhere to universal standards of quality. The group also agreed to support the creation of a body empowered to enforce the above.
The recommendations we have developed at this meeting will, if adopted by the governments, expand trade and investment opportunities for large, medium, and small companies by removing obstacles and inefficiencies in the U.S. and European regulatory regimes, said George David, chairman and CEO of United Technologies Corporation and US TABD chair for 2000. Adoption of these recommendations will create jobs, raise living standards, lower costs and improve access to goods -- that is, provide concrete benefits for business, for labor, and for consumers, he explained in the Orwellian manner most mega capitalists use to justify their participation in the spread of totalitarianism.
U.S./European corporate cooperation with each other and the International Codex Commission's plan to regulate dietary supplements like the pharmaceutical drugs with which they are in direct competition is not a good sign for Americans. Many Americans have elimated the use of expensive and dangerous patented synthetic pharmaceutical drugs and are going back to less expensive and proven safe natural remedies.
To control and regulate public access to dietary supplements in the manner prescription drugs are regulated is to control people's ability to keep themselves healthy. Now that global government and global corporations have come to terms on the principles of how dietary supplements are to be regulated, it is only a matter of time until the public will be forced to get a prescription from their doctor for a bottle of vitamin C.
For those who are not familiar with the concept of international regulation of all foods through the activities of the international Codex Alimentarius Commission, copies of Codex, a comprehensive, 14-volume set can be obtained from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations World Health Organization by writing to:
Distribution and Sales Section
The global socialists have proposed standards for everything from the amount of sliced pineapple that should be found in a can by weight and volume to how workers who processes baby foods should wash their hands after visiting the bathroom. To read through Codex is to fully understand how the UN intends to use food as a weapon by controlling it from the moment it leaves the field to the moment it enters your body.
