|Vitamin Freedom in the U.S.|
Many people take vitamin freedom in the U.S. for granted, but the road to securing the rights we have today has not been an easy one.
Through the coordinated efforts of industry and consumers, Congress passed the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA). Support for the bill was overwhelming, and Congress had not received such a response from so many individuals since the Vietnam War. It is because of this bill that Americans are still able to have unfettered access to health promoting dietary supplements.
There are, however, efforts underway to undermine DSHEA in America; and these efforts are lead by the Codex Alimentarius commission in the WTO. Many people mistakingly disregard this threat, but it is indeed real.
Dr. Rath has dedicated his life to ensuring that his scientific discoveries are available to people around the world. He has assumed a leadership role in the battle for natural health freedom by courageously exposing the profit motives of the pharmaceutical industry in suppressing this information. Dr. Rath invites his fellow natural health advocates to join him in the battle for vitamin freedom!
Your hard-won natural health freedoms as guaranteed by the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) of 1994 have come under attack by the political allies of pharmaceutical interest groups!
We are alerting you about the existence of these various unconstitutional bills so you can take immediate action by voicing your protest to the government leaders voting on it. For more information, please visit our website Vitamin-Freedom.org.
How Codex Threatens Your Rights
Since 1996, Dr. Rath has led the charge against the United Nation's "Codex Alimentarius" legislation, which would ban health statements and natural therapies in relation to vitamins on a worldwide scale. Codex is a direct threat against the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA), which protects the right of every American to access dietary supplements.
On the surface, Codex is a UN standards system to govern food to ensure “fair trade” and global health standards for fruits, meats, wines and other foods sold from country-to-country. But regulations governing dietary supplements and other natural health alternatives would gut consumers’ ability to make well-informed purchases of alternative health products. Codex guidelines were approved on July 5, 2005. The threat that Codex poses to the world’s health – and its importance to the pharmaceutical industry’s profits – was outlined in an article by Paul Anthony Taylor.
