"Always be aware, that humanity, the whole population of the world, is illusory. That includes the one reading these words. Humanity is not real or valid. The illusory body of humanity is not at all who and what we really are. We have simply been conjured up, given a 3D name, body, mind and spirit/energy, (all aspects which are fake), and then filled with endless suggestions in our illusory brain, that this is who we really are. From this point on, in our 3D life experience, believing that our 3 dimensional life experience is real, leads to endless confusion and suffering. This belief manifests the notion of being imprisoned. However, we are not imprisoned, but if we believe we are, then for all intents and purposes, we might as well be." - Bryan Kemila, IlluminatiMatrix

How Organic is Organic? Codex Alimentarius Cohorts Wage War Against Food

Take a moment to pause and consider what it is you are eating on a daily basis.  More and more people are trying to consume a healthy diet these days.  Just what constitutes a healthy diet is a matter of great contention.  Many including myself contend that limiting your exposure to pesticides, food additives and genetically modified (GM or GMO) foods is a good start and thus have begun eating organic foods.  In order to eat only healthy natural foods we must first determine, how organic is organic?  Will organic and home grown foods be bred and legislated out of existence?  What is Codex Alimentarius and how does it and corporate farming threaten bio-diversity, organic farms and even personal allotments or home gardens?

For those of us committed to improving or maintaining our health by eating a balanced organic diet, the agenda of corporate farming and governmental regulations complying with the Codex Alimentarius proposals spell disaster.  This not only affects our access and right to additive-free, pesticide-free, industrially produced chemical-fertilizer-free and non-genetically-modified organic foods, it also threatens every participating country's rights of national sovereignty.  In the United States of America the new federal food bills also threaten the constitutional sovereignty of the states.  

What is Codex Alimentarius?  Codex Alimentarius is an organization which works in conjunction with the Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Health Organization, which were all formed by the United Nations.  Let's have a look at what they have to say about themselves on their website, http://www.codexalimentarius.net/web/index_en.jsp.  Under the heading 'Understanding Codex Alimentarius' in the very first paragraph of the prefix you will find: 

"The Codex Alimentarius, or the food code, has become the global reference point for consumers, food producers and processors, national food control agencies and the international food trade. The code has had an enormous impact on the thinking of food producers and processors as well as on the awareness of the end users – the consumers. Its influence extends to every continent, and its contribution to the protection of public health and fair practices in the food trade is immeasurable."

The reach and influence of Codex Alimentarius is undoubtedly global.  There are 180 member countries, including such notables as Canada, the USA, every member state of the EU, Switzerland, Israel, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, China, Japan and Australia.  Has this influence done more harm than good?  Has the world seen an increase in the availability of healthy food products and fair trade?  China is producing toxic baby formula.  The USA is trying to legislate seed cleaning and seed banks.  Use of toxic food additives like aspartame are increasingly pervasive in common international food products, including those products intended for children.  More land is being planted with GM food crops every year. 

All of the countries on the continent of Africa except one are members of Codex Alimentarius and a fat lot of good it has done them.  There are still slaves used in the agricultural industry in many parts of Africa, most notably the cocoa industry.  Many who work for the big food producing corporations are little better than slaves, not just in Africa.  I have personally seen the effects of the large fish canneries in West African Nations such as Ghana and Togo.  I have seen the brands on the market shelves in the USA, Europe and Canada while the local Africans dry their small catch on the pavement or smoke it in small community smoke houses, left with barely enough to survive.  

Why is it Africans are starving when their governments ascribe to Codex Alimentarius?  They are starving because their food is in Western shops for sale and not their own markets.  Why are we drinking wines from Africa when those grapes could be dried into raisins and distributed to feed the children of Africa?  Many Africans are starving because availability of indigenous hardy plant seeds is reduced and the prices of quality indigenous strains of seeds inflated.  Farmers in Africa and all over the non-western world are finding that GM and western plant seeds will not grow properly or at all, particularly when using the traditional farming methods in these areas.  Crop failure equals starvation in many agrarian societies and GM crops have been a total failure for many poor farmers.  The bottom line is they are starving because both governments and Codex Alimentarius are corrupt and serve not the public interest but the interest of the large multinational corporations, like Monsanto. 

In the Western countries the influence of Codex Alimentarius and its corporate cronies is just as pervasive.  In the USA more and more restrictive food laws are being passed as I write.  A new bill introduced in the house of  representatives, H.R. 875: Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009, has ominous implications for organic farmers.  It also threatens farmers' ability to collect and store their own seeds as they have been doing for centuries.  In addition, the American government's refusal to label products containing GM foods means that any food product sold or exported from the USA can potentially contain GM ingredients.

You may be exposing yourself to GM ingredients even when buying organic products.  A recent study done by Professors Mark Partridge and Denis Murphy, at Glamorgan University in Wales, detected traces of GM ingredients in 10 of the 25 organic food samples tested.  Professor Murphy stated, "We have recently observed that many soya products now carry 'GM free' or 'organic' labels, both of which imply an absence of GM ingredients in these foods.  However, most of the soya now produced in the world comes from GM varieties."  

Plants in non-GM crops are having their genetics affected by neighboring GM fields.  Wind and insect borne cross-pollination is threatening many of the corn species in Mexico.  GM pollen has also affected at least one man's honey crop in Germany, causing him to dispose of his harvest and relocate his bees so they would not have access to GM plants.  

A wide verity of livestock are fed GM grains and then people eat the eggs, milk products and meat from these animals.  If the grain does not need to be labeled GM, how can you be certain you are eating eggs, dairy and meat that are organic?

The world's food supply is under attack due to corrupt governments and organizations like Codex Alimentarius.  This is most obvious in Africa, but the signs of encroaching food control can now be seen in almost every nation on Earth.  The same institutions that have been set in place to safeguard the public are the very ones who foist unfair trade practices and unsafe foods upon humanity.

Natural foods are essential in order to ensure your own good health and that of future generations.  Buy your food from local reputable organic farmers.  Where and when possible you should grow your own produce.  We must all refuse to accept unreasonable governmental restrictions on organic farms and gardens by actively resisting these laws and bills.  Make your voice heard before it is too late.  Human beings have the unalienable right to grow and eat healthy foods as well as a right to harvest and store the seeds produced by their crops.

  1. Hives whole post about how the rat poison would be put in the organic foods b/c they're usually purchased on credit confused me. i stopped buying organic milk b/c of it.
    i guess the point is that if you use less resources, the new world order will be kinder to you. Eat less meat and milk, and you eat less carcinogens and pesticides / hormones regardless of whether it's organic or not. Buy at the farmer's market, and you eat less "food miles"; notice that the toxic shit comes from overseas, and a lot of resources were expended to ship that food to you. Make your own food and don't eat food found in a readymade plastic container. The NWO considers you lazy if you can't your own food. and exercise regularly to sweat all the toxins out. If you're not sweating regularly, you'll get sick from modern day toxins.
    Codex can't outlaw growing strawberries or herbs. They can only encourage companies that ship vitamins and supplements overseas
    to minimize the nutritional contents in those products. So perhaps the vitamin C bottles you see won't be 1000 mg per serving, but 200 mg per serving. Your defenses are to (1) buy more bottles and take 5 pills instead of 1 and (2) eat more oranges; they can't tell you that you can only eat 1 orange per month. I agree, Codex sucks.
    I guess we'll all live shorter lives b/c of all the crap in the food. And we'll have fewer babies. I guess I don't really need to live to the age of 90 anyway.
