IAHF Webmaster: Breaking News, Whats New, What to Do, USA, All Countries, Anti Codex
Would some of you like to assist IAHF with demonstrations against the FDA in Miami (Sept 13), Boston (Nov. 2) and Phoenix (Nov. 30)?
How would you like to join me by registering for these "FDA Public Meetings" (See their info below), so that YOU TOO can be given 4 Minutes to GIVE THESE BUREAUCRATS FROM HELL A PIECE OF _YOUR_ MIND & we can videotape it and put it on the WEB to fire up still MORE people so as to generate a TSUNAMI of opposition to the FDA's CODEX Agenda and other egregiously offensive policies as well as to the FTAA?
If I am the only one, I'll only get 4 minutes to speak, but if SEVERAL of you JOIN me in each of these cities, we can not only coordinate our presentations to really SLAM the FDA hard and give 'em something to THINK ABOUT, but we can ALSO have DEMONSTRATORS in front of the buildings where these meetings will be taking place, if enough of you turn out to help!
Another reason to attend is to MONITOR the so called "Quackbusters" who always attend these meetings. These are allies of the FDA's and it pays to learn what they're up to. They always let their guard down and get really cocky at these meetings because the FDA are their friends and we can expect a bunch of them to be out in force urging the FDA to attack the supplement industry and alternative medicine. Its very important that we be there to COUNTER them.
We can ALSO use this as a way to get a jump on the FTAA, before Congress has even dropped a bill, and we can send PHOTOS of our demonstration to every member of Congress along with WARNINGS to those who violated their OATHS by voting for CAFTA that if they don't RECANT and admit they made a MISTAKE, we're going to organize TIRELESSLY against them, ESPECIALLY if they COMPOUND their error by ALSO supporting FTAA- see http://www.stoptheftaa.org, and see this article which documents the threat posed by the harmonization language in FTAA:
HERE IS FDA's ANNOUNCEMENT- IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE- YOU MUST REGISTER ON THEIR
WEBSITE IF YOU WANT TO SPEAK AT THE MEETINGS, YOU DON'T NEED TO REGISTER IF YOU ONLY WANT TO DEMONSTRATE OUTSIDE
FDA to Hold Public 'Conversations' in Three Cities
To help inform consumers about agency programs and to get public
feedback, FDA is holding a series of three public meetings called
"Vision 2006 -- A Conversation With the American Public." Discussion
topics include drug safety, direct-to-consumer advertising, dietary
supplements, FDA's "Critical Path" initiative, and the advisory
committee process. Meetings are scheduled for Sept. 13 (Miami), Nov. 2
(Boston), and Nov. 30 (Phoenix).
WHY ITS VERY IMPORTANT TO HELP WITH THIS & MORE INFO
The Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act of 1994 ("DSHEA") is the only reason you have access to the dietary supplements you enjoy. This legislation was passed in the face of a direct FDA rulemaking effort which threatened to destroy your access to supplements in the early '90s. Today this legislation is under an unprecedented level of attack both at the international level due to CODEX and global harmonization of the laws via CAFTA and FTAA, and domestically, with numerous bills pending in congress that threaten to DESTROY DSHEA.
Please let me know if you can join me at a public meeting scheduled by the FDA on
September 13th in Miami where I need your assistance to let them know that although they are unelected bureaucrats who seem to think they can violate the law, and walk all over us with impunity and get away with it, that they CAN'T, and that WE'RE MONITORING THEM. I intend to let them know I'm MAD AS HELL, and I'm NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE (see specifics below
..) I'll have a camcorder and tripod, and need a volunteer to help film this event so we can put it on the web, to fire up still MORE people, because a new revolt against the FDA is clearly in order for the coming year!
(We also need demonstrators to protest the meeting from the SIDEWALK to BACK UP those of us who'll be INSIDE the meeting.)
See this FDA Announcement: If you want to help, you'll need to go to FDA's website and register for the meeting due to limited seating. Also please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, 800-333-2553 to let me know you'll be there.
WHAT I INTEND TO MAKE AN ISSUE OF
On July 4th, 2005, in Bonn, Germany, a crime against the American people was committed by the FDA and the USDA when US Codex Manager Dr.Ed Scarbrough moved to ratify a finalized Codex vitamin standard that is intended to screw the American people via harmonization of our laws to a mindlessly restrictive international Codex standard.
Scarbrough's accomplice in crime at Codex is Dr.Christine Lewis Taylor of the FDA who is "on loan" to the World Health Organization where she is spearheading WHO's "Nutrient Risk Assessment Project" which is in charge of filling in the blanks on allowable potencies for vitamins, minerals, and other dietary supplements at Codex.
WHY WE NEED TO READ FDA THE RIOT ACT
Last May, Taylor sent out a call for applicants to participate in a (so called) "Nutrient Risk Assessment Workshop" which was convened in order to generate the methodology intended to be used to "fill in the blanks" on allowable potencies of vitamins, minerals and other dietary supplements at the UN's Codex Alimentarius Commission.
She EXCLUDED over 100 very qualified people from OUR SIDE who wished to participate including Dr.Rob Verkerk from the UK based Alliance for Natural Health, despite the fact that his organization was one of only 15 organizations that submitted comments to WHO when they also requested comments from people about what they're doing.
ANH's comments totally expose the gross lack of science inherent in WHO's "Nutrient Risk Assessment Methodology" wherein they're only looking at supposed "risks" posed by vitamins and minerals while totally IGNORING their many BENEFITS. Additionally, ANH has noticed that WHO has been taking a very SELECTIVE look at the medical literature, only focusing on negative studies while ignoring positive studies. They've been basing conclusions on flawed animal data in cases where far more accurate HUMAN DATA is available, and a host of other things which clearly illustrate BIAS.
This isn't surprising given that Taylor is a registered Dietician, and the American Dietetic Assn's official policy is that no one needs to use dietary supplements- their view is that you get all the nutrients you need from your FOOD (despite the fact that massive evidence indicates that the soil has been steadily depleted of nutrients by modern agricultural techniques.)
Please see ANH's extensive submission to the WHO at
Please see this table which shows how WE THINK they plan on filling in the blanks for allowable potencies at CODEX
These genocidal numbers are what the German government wants, and from her actions, we think Christine Taylor intends to ignore the wishes of the American people who voted with their feet against this via passage of DSHEA. We think she's working with the Germans and against the American people. We need to make an issue of this because a congressional oversight hearing on the Codex issue was WHITEWASHED on March 20, 2001 and the truth did not come out then.
We need to push HARDER for PROPER Congressional Oversight on Codex, ESPECIALLY now that CAFTA was rammed down our throats with FTAA yet to come. We need to rally the troops and build our grass roots strength big enough to overcome the spin against our message from the pharma dominated vitamin trade associations.

Kevin Miller, producer of this documentary on Codex is being sued by a Rockefeller alligned controlled opposition group which attempted unsuccessfully to influence the contenct of the DVD and to block Miller from interracting with IAHF.
This controlled opposition group attempted unsuccessfully to hijack our movement at a conference in Washington DC at which IAHF and allied organizations banded together to form The Coalition for Health Freedom http://www.coalitionforhealthfreedom.org
