Chapter 19: IG Farbens Next Racket-Vitamin Over-regulation

"In 1942, the deaths of six million Jews were sealed with the decisions made at the Wannsee Conference. If the pharmaceutical cartel succeeds with its cruel schemes today, the upcoming June Codex Alimentarius conference will foreordain the death of millions. However, there is an important difference: Today the predicted number of victims is 100 times greater than those killed in World War Two." -Rath, Matthias M.D. (94)

Fritz ter Meer

From 1956-1964, Fritz ter Meer was reinstated as a member of the Managing Board of Bayer AG. Just fifteen years after he and his business partners were convicted at Nuremberg of mass murder and plunder, they were at it again. In 1962, Hoechst, Bayer and BASF established the Codex Alimentarius Commission. (95) One of the main architects of Codex was Fritz ter Meer.

The title "Codex Alimentarius" - Latin for "food code" - is as misleading as "Arbeit mach frei." Codex isn't just a list of herbs and some organic certification standards. The recently published proposed draft guidelines for vitamin and mineral supplements of the Codex Alimentarius Commission stipulate that the "maximum level of each nutrient contained in a vitamin and mineral supplement should not exceed 100% of the recommended daily intake." (96)

Putting it in plain terms, CODEX uses scientific sounding language and alphabetic gibberish to argue for dosage limits, despite the fact that supplements have a better safety record than food. In Germany today, folks can't even look at a vitamin bottle without permission from a pharmacist! (97)

The full implications of this amount of "Big Brother" health regs are not obvious. It works out to only 65 mg of "legal" vitamin C per day - an absurd limit! Other proposals would make "any product" that has ever been rumored to be used to heal into a "registered drug" requiring a prescription! (98)

There has been some resistance to this. The delegate from Great Britain from the Codex meeting of October 1998 recommended "not setting any upper limit for vitamins and minerals" as "some patients will have an increased requirement in nutrients due to the illness." (99)

Something tells me the warnings will fall on deaf ears, like the AMA's warnings about the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937. The word is that Norway, Denmark, Egypt and Singapore are all backing the Farben-proposed guidelines. The good news is that the Canadian delegation, supported by that of the USA, vehemently opposed further work on these guidelines in the 1998 session (a dissent that made it into the press and the final report). The new bad news? CODEX " Phytosanitary" standards have been inserted into the new FTAA Draft Agreement. "Raw hemp" is to be regulated under a similar overbearing section. (100)

It is worth noting that Pfizer, Aventis, Pharmacia, Bayer, BASF, (radioactive phosphate fertilizer producing) Cargill, Hoffman La Roche, Warner Lambert, have been mentioned as being a part of today's efforts to secure regulations on vitamins. (101) Most of these companies have ties to the Rockefeller-Farben cartel. The connections are outlined below.

Reishi Mushroom -Ganoderma lucidum

"In China and other parts of Asia, G. lucidum is used for many aging -related diseases, such as coronary heart disease, chronic bronchitis, hypertension, and cancer (Shen& Zhang, 1987), and also as a diuretic, laxative , sedative, and tonic (Liu and Bau, 1980). In China, numerous preparations are made for daily use to promote health, inducing sound sleep and increasing resistance to infections and heart disease, and are also recommended for a wide range of ailments such as neurasthenia, chronic bronchitis, and coronary heart disease (Yand & Jong, 1989). The Japanese government has officially listed Reishi as an adjunct herb for cancer (Willard,1990). Preliminary clinical reports and practitioner experience seems to indicate that its immunostimulating polysaccharides may make it useful for people who are HIV positive, as well as for those who have Epstein Barr Virus (EBV), an infectious virus that causes mononucleosis (Dharmandanda,1988). " from "Herbal Healing for Women" , Rosemary Gladstar, Fireside Press, 1993

In Hawaii, the use of kava has come back in the past 10 years although it has been popular for thousands of years by a wide range of South Pacific cultures for spiritual, medicinal, and recreational purposes. The drinking of kava "juice" has been always surrounded with ritual whether it is used for life passages such as weddings and funerals, or just for relaxation. In these cultures, kava has been popular with fisherman, and farmers because its active ingredients, kavalactones, concentrated in its roots relax muscles, but stimulate the central nervous system enough to evoke peace, conversation, friendship and camaraderie. Most Kava users report a state of relaxation and mild euphoria without feeling drugged, along with decreased muscle tension and greater clarity of thought. Pacific Islanders say the awareness invoked by the herb "brings one into communion with the gods and ancestors." Therefore, in these cultures bringing a gift of kava to someone's home is a symbol of peace and communion.
