This sounds like something out of Warhammer 40K to me but it is real.

The Codex Alimentarius (latin for "food law" or "food code") is a collection of internationally recognized standards. You can find their official site here

As good as this seams, there is a group that opposes this. Healthfreedomsusa.org is dedicated to fighting the Codex Alimentarius because it threatens your "health freedoms" and access to supplements. Here is a list of there claims.

So far I have found their claims to be false, misleading, and designed to produce fear that the government will take away your herbal supplement. In all honesty I can only find regulations on labeling (not banning) supplements, and labeling irradiated food (not requiring it), two of their main points.

Does anyone else know about this? I am trying to find all information about it and would aprecate a medical persions view point of this.

You can go wrong by being too skeptical as readily as by being too trusting. -- Robert A. Heinlein

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored. -- Aldous Huxley

These woo-woo bozos would probably have us drinking urine as a dietary suppliment. I'll go with the Codex Alimentarius, and a clean, wholesome, evidence-based food supply, thank you.
