Society Issues Health The Codex Alimentarius
The Codex Alimentarius is a collection of international food standards covering the main foods, whether processed, semi-processed or raw, as well as materials used in the further processing of food products. Official objectives of the standards are protecting the health of consumers and facilitating fair practices in the food trade. Codex provisions concern the hygienic and nutritional quality of food, including microbiological norms, food additives, pesticide and veterinary drug residues, contaminants, labelling and presentation, and methods of sampling and risk analysis. Many consumers of natural foods and dietary supplements regard the Codex as a threat to access to these types of products. Some consider the Codex to be a conspiracy by the processed foods and pharmaceuticals industries.

Codex Showdown in Berlin Points to Dire Need for Congressional Oversight of FDA
"If we fail to get the Codex draft proposal for vitamins and minerals removed entirely... consumers world wide will be deprived of access to potency levels within the therapeutic range, restricted to strictly RDA levels of nutrients, and deprived of health information about these products via labels and labeling. Moreover, anything without an RDA would be regulated as a 'drug.' This would kill millions of people." (October 07, 1998)
