Scott Tips, NHF President Taking YOUR Voice to Codex
November 9, 2018
Dear Health-Conscious Friend,
One of our National Health Federation members in Hawaii recently said, “Every time I read about NHF at Codex, you are chalking up another victory!” She was referring to NHF’s astounding victory at the Codex meetings in April and July of this year where the Federation helped stop the toxic vet drug Zilpaterol from advancing to approval for worldwide sales at Codex* Alimentarius.
Now, please don’t misunderstand me when I tell you that I wish it were always so. True, the NHF has had an amazing round of successes in protecting your health and health freedom at Codex: From stopping melamine poisoning of infant formula, to increasing vitamin and mineral RDAs from laughably low levels to higher ones, to removing aluminum from most food additives, and to stopping Zilpaterol from entering the worldwide food supply. But we need your help now more than ever to keep going.
Few people – even some health-freedom fighters – fully understand the immense power of Codex to impact the World’s health … now, and for generations to come. Here at the NHF we DO understand the vital worldwide impact of every Codex meeting upon your health. That is why we work so hard to represent you and fight for your health & health freedom at Codex meetings all over the Globe!
Yes, it is costly for us to fly to China, Germany, and other distant locations to represent you.
Yes, it is an enormous time and energy drain, and
Yes, I encounter amazing amounts of both scientific ignorance and greed as I present proven facts and studies to the Codex delegates;
But, that’s why we are here …
TO PROTECT AND DEFEND YOUR HEALTH & HEALTH FREEDOM BY FIGHTING IGNORANCE & GREED WHEREVER WE FIND IT!
Unfortunately, I encountered both ignorance and greed in all-too-large quantities at these last two Codex meetings in Chicago and Rome, where once again the NHF was the only consumer organization and health-freedom organization to attend both meetings! In these past 18 years, as the head delegate for the NHF, I have attended more Codex meetings than ALL other health-freedom activists combined and more than even most Codex delegates. (To many, this next statement might sound dramatic or overstated, but it is indeed a fact.) Many times I have had the sacred responsibility of being the lone consumer voice fighting to defend your health & health freedom at Codex meetings. If NHF were not present, then what evil might be passed in the name of “safe food and unfettered world trade”?
DO YOU LIKE GIVING THE DRUG COMPANIES A BLOODY NOSE?
High drug prices, unproven and unsafe toxic drugs and vaccines, fake drug studies, undue influence at all levels of government, revolving doors between big government and big industry – this what you and I get daily from the big drug and agricultural companies. I don’t know about you but I refuse to tolerate being on the receiving end of injustice and injury!
So, whenever NHF gets the chance to strike back and bloody their noses, you can be sure we will do it. And we did at the most recent Codex meetings where Merck’s toxic Zilpaterol animal drug was stopped cold. And was Merck mad! They were so angry with NHF – one of the key players in stopping them – that one of their representatives engaged in character assassination of NHF right there at Codex! That just shows you how effective we were at the meetings.
Do you want us to keep blocking Merck and its minions as best we can from spreading ill-health throughout the World? Well, then keep us in the field, fighting for you!
You will grin because Merck – the drug sponsor for Zilpaterol – attended the Chicago Codex meeting confident of victory. But they were beaten because NHF spoke for you and your family, your children and your grandchildren whose bodies will remain clear of this poison—for now. Millions of dollars invested in their so-called wonder-drug down the drain. Smug Merck wasn’t laughing and went right to work attacking NHF – whom one of Merck’s many representatives present saw as primarily responsible for its defeat in a Codex Committee that Merck was arrogant enough to think that it owns.
So, he tried to intimidate the Codex Secretariat by showing him a photo of me with the Secretariat, as if there were something wrong with that. And he also showed the Codex scientific representatives our NHF Facebook page where we had called their science “junk science.” Then, he chortled in our ears about how “everyone here hates you now!” In short, he pulled all of the desperate, grasping, dirty stunts that one might expect from those of his ilk. And, to top it off, in an historically unprecedented move, NHF was even denounced from the head table by a Codex scientist who was “offended” that NHF had called him out on his industry-tainted “science.” In my 18 years at Codex, I have never witnessed this level of desperation by industry backed by the presumably unbiased Codex heads.
But, NHF had won a great victory for our members and the World as well, while Merck had lost. And that’s what counted. NHF has never attended Codex meetings to win popularity contests. We are there for YOU. To protect and preserve your health, not to cozy up with contemptible drug-peddlers and their pet government regulators.
You see, like its evil twin ractopamine, zilpaterol hydrochloride (tradename Zilmax®) is a beta-adrenergic agonist (bAA) drug that is given to cattle and other food animals to take nutrients away from fat production and push them instead into muscle, creating a leaner and ostensibly more-valuable animal. Zilmax is about 125 times more potent than ractopamine. Although not a steroid, the drug does have steroid-like effects on animals and humans alike. These effects, though, can be cumulative and devastating.
Here’s just a snapshot of what Zilpaterol cruelly does to animals:
- Lameness in cattle because the cattle’s hooves fall off!
- Respiratory and leg disorders
- Heart disease
- Higher risk of death (the cumulative risk and incidence rate of death in cattle was 75% to 90% greater in animals administered the β-adrenergic agonists compared to contemporaneous controls).
Worse, in humans eating this doped meat, many had elevated heart rates, arrhythmias, and myocardial infarctions. Even deaths. Meat that is labeled as “all natural” when it contains residues of vet drugs constitutes the worst case of label deception.
OUR NEXT BATTLE AT CODEX WILL DIRECTLY AFFECT YOU!
This November, right after Thanksgiving, your NHF must go to Berlin, where the Codex Nutrition Committee meeting will be held. At that meeting, the Big Ag companies and their supporters (the FDA, Health Canada, etc.) will once again try to sneak GMO foods into the Codex definition of “BIOFORTIFIED” foods. Then, disguised as a friendly “Biofortified” food, GMO foods could sneak into consumers’ diets without them even knowing of it! This kind of market deception must be stopped.
At first, BIOFORTIFICATION started out as an innocent definition covering hybrid crops conventionally engineered to increase vitamin and/or mineral content. Then, by the infamous Monsanto sleight of hand, the definition morphed into one that insidiously included genetically modified organisms. How clever…. We fought that at the last Codex Nutrition Committee meeting and were successful in stalling it.
But the next meeting will see a real fight by the pro-GMO forces to push their anti-health agenda of deception…. NHF MUST be there to stop it! And we need YOUR help to stop it.
ACT NOW TO SAVE YOUR HEALTH!
NHF is dedicated to informed and transparent science, your health freedom, and individual liberty, responsibility and sovereignty. We have many major Codex meetings and battles ahead of us. It is absolutely urgent to act – not just to care – right now. NHF is already preparing to go to the upcoming Codex Nutrition Committee meeting in Berlin, Germany. And after that, there are other Codex Committees NHF must attend, with the same fierce battles for your health; for your very life. We need your help to be able to go to these meetings, to speak for you as your Voice for Health Freedom.TM
Today, I am asking you to help us with a much-needed gift once again. Even though we are HEAVILY outgunned financially by the Drug Peddlers and other big corporate fat cats – and government bureaucrats spending taxpayers’ dollars – we have been able to fight effectively and constantly for your Health Freedom over the decades.
PLEASE send in whatever you can – $50, $100, $500, $1,000 – every gift will help.
Or else call our office at 1-626-357-2181 to donate by phone. I would like you to consider a gift of $100 or more.
(For those donating $100 or more, we will send you a copy of Dr. John Cannell excellent book, Athlete’s Edge: Faster, Quicker, Stronger with Vitamin D).
I need to please hear from you today. Finances designated for Codex attendance have been depleted by the latest Codex battles. In fact, you may donate online through Paypal or using your credit card at our NHF website. Donate
Thank you for caring and for trusting us to help protect you and your family. You are going up against GIANTS and winning!
Yours in Health Freedom,
Scott C. Tips

The NHF is the oldest & best-respected Health-Freedom group fighting for your health-freedom choices, access to dietary supplements, nutritional foods, and for the preservation of the small farmer and organic food producers. With your help, we can expand to help preserve Health Freedom in America, Canada, Europe, and around the Globe.
*Codex Alimentarius and National Health Federation
As a Codex-accredited INGO, NHF participates actively in all important Codex discussions because the food standards and guidelines adopted by the Codex Alimentarius Commission (created by the WHO and FAO 55 years ago) are then applied domestically by numerous countries worldwide and by virtually all countries in international food trade. Codex standards and guidelines are enforced by the World Trade Organization using trade sanctions. Codex is more important than most people realize in its impact on our food, drink, and supplements.
