Conquering the Last Frontier, the Terrain of the Human Soil and Codex Alimentarius
By Katherine A. Carroll, NTP
The National Health Federation (NHF) is providing the wake-up call for the World right now. Like the founders of America, were the early voices not raised persistently and aggressively compelling others of like-minded spirit to action there would be no America. NHF is waging war on the front lines to protect the terrain of the human soil, the modern battle-ground, and the terroir that influences the sanctity of our bodies and our children’s bodies.
- “In the past people said the pen was mightier than the sword. In the future, it will be the chip that is mightier than the sword. The economy, not weaponry, is the new criterion for a superpower…In the future, it is clear that a superpower can maintain its status only through economic might (versus weaponry as in the past), and that in turns stems from science and technology.” Machio Kaku, “Physics of the Future”.
Kaku alludes to a new warfare in his fine book, “Physics of the Future”; truly the last terrain to conquer will be through science and technology. Historically warfare has captured land and resources. The new warfare seeks to conquer the territory of the human soil. Like Lawrence of Arabia, who revolutionized modern warfare by moving away from an annihilation approach but left a ragged, demoralized band of soldiers in his wake that would never achieve the hero’s welcome, so the UN, operating through Codex Alimentarius on the global theater of war, seeks to infiltrate and attack the sanctity of the human being with contaminants, additives, toxins, and to incapacitate or destroy us from within. The last great battle is for the terroir of the human spirit, not a tract of land although Agenda 21 is one means to the end.
Maybe it’s the fluoride in the water making us passive. Maybe it’s the voting system in the states we all know is rigged—our vote counts? We all know our food choices are a matter of choosing the lesser of two evils in many cases: “This contaminant will kill me and that additive may disable me more slowly…” Nothing is pure anymore. If it isn’t sullied by the soil, it is polluted by the atmosphere. So we settle. Mentally, we give up with a passivity that disappoints us and we decide it’s a losing battle. Something intangible inside us began to die a long time ago and we give up, “a little here, a little there” until “They’ve” won.
But we have more power than we think in the global arena. How can that possibly be when state-side we are subject to the fixed polls and wondering if our vote really counts? At Codex Alimentarius where guidelines and standards are set for the World, it counts. If you use the powerful weapon of Voice, if you are aware, if you help other Country delegates to understand the truth that takes back the territory of health in the World vs. fostering increased World trade, harmonization, and padding the industry’s bottom financial line, you can win this battle.
How NHF came to have a coveted seat at Codex is really part miracle and part dogged tenacity but hey, the Red Sea parted once and it has happened again. Through the Voice of reason, combined with insistence and aggressively fighting for the truth and light, it is possible to carry not only a nation but a World into a land where we have a fighting chance to thrive and grow again.
This Voice of Truth, uttered by President and General Counsel Scott C. Tips hundreds of times at Codex and in the press over the past 14 years, has bypassed the desires of your governments’ myopic vision altogether and has been able to spread the hopeful ripple of health to a World that needs hope- and health.
So how is it that only ONE health freedom organization came to occupy a seat as an Independent Non-governmental Governmental Agency (INGO) at Codex and what has been the result that has shifted the fate of the World’s food and beverage supplies time and again? The former is a topic for another article. The latter we saw as recently as NHF’s attendance at the Codex Committee meeting on Food Additives (CCFA) in Beijing, China in March, 2013 where NHF spoke against aluminum and submitted research on aspartame, which will be discussed next year in China. Aluminum is associated with significant central nervous system toxicity and bone and liver damage and research shows it is associated with Alzheimer’s which is increasing.
The NHF was the ONLY health freedom organization AND the ONLY consumer organization present in a huge conference room at the Asia Hotel full of Country delegates and INGOs. Talk about a minnow in a sea of piranhas, or at best, kind octopi that were just too shy to immerse in the turbid waters of global debate on issues they were in many cases, ill prepared to even begin to discuss. For the timid on this global stage, in their defense even with a heart of resolve and commitment, the courtroom-style setting can quell one’s enthusiasm and leave one wishing for the safety of the harbor vs. entering into full battle with the World as witness to the outcome.
But as the Iranian delegate advised NHF, “Do you realize how hated you are here? You have a reputation for aggressively fighting for what you want and writing about those that oppose you.” In light of the fact that only once have I seen reporters at Codex- and one of these times it was at NHF’s initiation that the American Free Press was at a meeting where GMO labeling was supposed to be discussed and was shelved, someone must write home and let the World know what really goes on behind closed doors as the Country delegates parry with the sword of their words to determine whether the health of nations will move forward or fall into further defeat and decay. As it stands now, what goes on at Codex remains at Codex. What you don’t know won’t hurt you—or will it?
In fact, if you’re like most of the World, you didn’t even know the battle to conquer the terrain of your body was even been waged at Codex in various locations all over World in different committee meetings month after month steadily marching forward in the implementation of the global agenda.
Life-changing decisions are being implemented at Codex that will impact you and your family’s health and you might be one of the millions sleeping right through it like the good little child the government demands. Do you want to be like this? Didn’t think so. Do you want to feel powerless about your choices of food and drink? Didn’t think so. You’ve worked hard, made the best choices for your family so to be reduced to choosing between “the lesser of two evils” is completely unacceptable.
You have a potentially untapped avenue you may not have even been aware of—NHF who faithfully advances to the front lines of every debate that impacts your health and health freedom to speak for you. Time and again…enjoying a lack of melamine in your food supply is just one example where NHF was battling to the death while you were possibly completely unaware. Melamine, the compound in cookware, eating utensils, and the deadly contaminant in infant formula and dog food that appeared to increase the protein content and instead increased the death and serious injury toll among humans and animals alike, was put down by an initiative launched SOLELY by NHF. That Codex meeting in 2009 saw a silent World prepared to accept current levels of the deadly melamine until NHF launched the attack against it and the Country delegates were roused from their stupor and joined in. Did you read this stunning victory in the API or see it on the nightly news the next day? No. But NHF has been quietly, diligently, and faithfully going about its work since 1955 on your and your family’s behalf.
Sometimes you’ve been aware, sometimes if you’re like most of the World, you are not. Sometimes your donation allows NHF attendance at a Codex meeting, and sometimes the lack of funding means a loss of NHF’s ability to be present to speak for you and a sacrifice of global health and health freedom because of it. Sometimes, being present isn’t enough when the funding hasn’t been in place to prepare the educational and tactical ground for launching a successful offensive as in the case of Ractopamine, which was lost in Rome, Italy July of 2012.
The defining moment, however, is realizing it is never too late to wake-up, to show up, to participate in defending the last human frontier from the degradation being waged against its integrity. We all can have, sooner or later, our “Sleeping Beauty” moment when our eyes are opened as we wake to the reality of this unspoken and largely hidden war. We will either be full of gratitude that NHF has been battling it out for over 55 years or we will leave what we’re doing and sign on to be a part of this last great war against the soil of the human terrain. Or we’ll have an epiphany and do both, feel grateful and let it move us to action and participation.
The important strategy is taking our power back. We tell the World that we will no longer choose between the lesser of two evils- the Trojan Horse that we know will destroy us from within and ultimately kill us. This is exactly what happened in March, 2013, in Beijing, China when NHF decided the projected increase of (aluminum-mediated) Alzheimer’s by 2050 was simply ludicrous in this day and age of technology and intellectual advancement and that there is no excuse for it anymore.
President Tips spoke 2 dozen times opposing aluminum in its numerous and various forms but also in achieving reductions that may give some vulnerable populations a fighting chance to hold their health. Then he took to task the industry that declared their (hopelessly outdated) equipment would catch on fire during the manufacturing process unless they continued to use the toxic “anti-caking” aluminum. His logical solution presented to the Country delegates and INGOs was to create new equipment. We all know our electronics are outdated in a year and we move to the next generation. The Codex Chairman sided with industry reprimanding NHF for suggesting such a thing! The health of the World is once again sacrificed as cannon-fodder on the front lines of the war machine moving roughshod right over it.
This is the same Chairman Chen who has made multiple trips to the US before this meeting. The same US who sided continually with Australia who never seems to choose health despite the stated goal of Codex, “The stated purpose of this Codex committee meeting is to protect the health of consumers in regards to food and drink.” The point being, you have a champion and an advocate in NHF. Your checkbook will thank you later when you avert financial ruin forking over thousands of dollars to care for your loved ones in an Alzheimer’s unit “the concentration camp of the new millennium”. What a convenient way to house thousands of people…
It is time you realize how powerful you are. If you thought you lost it state-side flex your Voice in a display of militant-might on the front lines, the global theater of war called Codex through the vehicle of NHF. NHF will represent your desires, your needs, and your demands by speaking consistently for health and protecting your health freedoms.
So how do you begin or begin again? Let NHF hear from you! Let us know what you need and what you want for your present and your future. We are a non-profit public servant fighting for you and serving you and your loved ones on multiple fronts without any government funding or interference. We won’t put ourselves in a position to be swayed by the purse-strings or “bought”. NHF certainly has no hidden agendas like padding our bottom line or manipulating World trade as we see from many Country delegates and INGOs at Codex.
There are very real expenses to be met each time NHF is present to represent you and stand in the gap for you. So fall in behind your Voice for health freedom, the Voice speaking for the consumer- You- and the ONLY health freedom organization present at Codex who is able to speak, to submit research, and to correct the final report’s entries of which there are often glaring, convenient omissions. We will never fail to speak and fight for you and we currently have in the leadership of President and General Counsel Tips an FDA specialist attorney doing just these things on your behalf. Won’t you join us today as NHF leads the World back to the respect and protection of the last frontier, the integrity, sanctity, and health of the human soil where the real battle is being waged today? We cannot win this without you.
