In 2008, using the toxic industrial chemical melamine in liquid infant formula, 6 babies died while more than 303,000 became deathly ill from exposure in China. At the time, the UN Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) had allowed for the maximum limit of 1 milligram per kilogram of formula. Now the CAC has revised that maximum to 0.15 millgrams per kilogram of formula.
Melamine is a dangerous chemical used in the manufacturing of dishes and kitchen cooking-ware. The Chinese used the chemical in a watered-down solution in infant formula under the guise that it tested positive for protein enrichment. However, using a man-made chemical in consumptive sources does not make sense when nutritional value is a concern.
Chinese rice and wheat gluten also contain melamine and was found in concentrations of dangerous levels when pet food exported from the region was tested in 2007. The cats and dogs that ate the food died from kidney failure, says WHO.
Reports have also concluded that melamine has caused the development of kidney stones and other kidney damage in adults.
The CAC is a UN intergovernmental body made up of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Health Organization (WHO), 170 international governmental representatives ; including the European Commission. Under the CAC, the UN seeks to take over food prices internationally by controlling food trade and reforming consumer health.
They oversee international food standards and make sure that government implement them with the influence of non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
Right now, in Rome, Italy, the CAC are having their 35th Session of the Codex Alimentarius Commission. On their agenda is the Draft Codex Strategic Plan 2014-2019 where the CAC are developing a “science-based and globally applicable international standards for food and promote use of these standards by countries.”
At the meeting, the CAC decided on maximum uses of the toxic chemical ractopamine, an MRLs, which enhances the leanness of livestock meat. Separate permits for beef and pork will be established to “take down any trade barriers caused by an improper ban on the use of ractopamine,” according to US representatives.
Imported beef into the US contains residue of ractopamine.
The CAC is priming themselves to be the “effective, inclusive, and trusted global leader in setting food standards” where they will have complete control over “food safety, quality, and food trade”. In conjunction with WHO and the FAO, the CAC will have exclusive oversight “to track progress toward [the] accomplishment of the goals” of the UN to securitize food globally.
Between 2014 – 2019 the Strategic Plan of the CAC is intended to be fully implemented by international mandate “to meet the needs” of their stakeholders and members. The specifics of the Strategic Plan, adopted by resolution by WHO will be enforced by the UN agency. FAO will be tasked with “[improving] quality and safety for food at all stage of the food chain.”
CAC believes that with population growth, climate change and “the growing demand for food” four strategic goals must be implemented with the global vision reflected by:
• UN standards on food
• Based on science
• Demanded participation of the international community
The CAC exclusively bases their food standards on scientific developments to protect public health and the global food trade. By exchanging financial support from member states for scientific research and development to ensure that food be created for the consumption of developing nations.
In these developing countries, the CAC demands participation by financial blackmail with monies from the Codex Trust Fund. They promote governmental allowance of UN programs and structures in line with sustainable national funding by the UN.
Earlier this year, President Obama announced that Codex Alimentarius would be the foundation of his new initiative to merge the pharmaceutical corporations and the US government to identify new uses for drugs that have already been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
It was admitted that:
Obama’s executive order Establishing the National Prevention, Health Promotion and Public Health Council in 2010 which empowered the CAC to enact their international food standards in the US.
The US Senate gave their approval of this UN takeover of our food, vitamins and medicinal substances with the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act, S. 3187. This allows the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to charge “user fees” to drug corporations to create what they call “safety and efficiency reviews”. After the pharmaceutical companies quietly buy their FDA approved reviews, their drugs are given the green light and introduced into the general public. This financial relationship with the US government and the drug corporations, in conjunction with the UN, is a deception that will lead to declines in health and well-being of the general public.
But, remember, this is what this scheme was designed to do. The global Elite want 90% of the world’s population dead because a small group is easier to control.
