Not sure about the details of the EU implementation of this travesty, probably worse and more thoroughly mixed in with the mountain ranges of beaureacrap we swim in over here. No need to post Scripture about what The Lord thinks of such things, surely?

CODEX ALIMENTARIUS: The Elephant in the Room that They Donít Want You to See
July 7, 2010
By Barbara H. Peterson
Codex Isnít Coming, Itís Here!
Why is there so much denial by consumer advocate groups such as the National Health Federation(1) (NHF) about Barry Soetoro implementing the U.S. Codex council via Executive Order(2)? What is it that they donít want you to see? Just do the research, and you will discover that we have been up to our eyeballs in Codex since 1962 and donít even know it.
Codex is a subsidiary body of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations and the World Health Organization (WHO). Codex develops international food safety and quality standards, such as standards concerning the safety of food additives. Standards set by Codex traditionally served as a minimum floor for less developed countries. The U.S. has participated in Codex since its formation in 1962 and has shared its technical expertise in efforts to aid less developed countries.
CSPI: Codex Alimentarius Commission (Codex)
We are being lulled into complacency with declarations that Codex isnít here yet, not to worry, while the elephant in the room is getting bigger all the time. Here is a quote from an article posted on the NHF site:
While the Executive Order is real, it is not imposing Codex rules on the United States. As NHF lobbyist Lee Bechtel correctly points out, ďThere is no direct policy link between this Council and Codex, or with the way in which the FDA regulates food and food supplements.Ē
THE OBAMA EXECUTIVE ORDER - MORE HEALTHCARE BUREAUCRACY, BUT NOT BACKDOOR CODEX
No direct link with the way in which the FDA regulates food and food supplements? Donít worry, Codex is not here, we have nothing to worry about, just go about your daily business. In a pigís eye. Do the research. Look through the Codex, USDA, and CDC sites. I will provide the links. Donít just believe what someone says because he/she belongs to a large organization that is ďtoo bigĒ to be wrong!
United States Ė Mandatory Compliance and Implementation
While we are busy living the American Dream, Codex is weaving its way through the fabric of our lives via regulations and corporate compliance without so much as a whimper from the organizations we count on to do our fighting for us.
