2011 The Push for Codex?

Europe to ban hundreds of herbal remedies

By Jeremy Laurance, Health Editor (Read full article)

From 1 May 2011, traditional herbal medicinal products must be licensed or prescribed by a registered herbal practitioner to comply with an EU directive passed in 2004… Herbal practitioners say it is impossible for most herbal medicines to meet the licensing requirements for safety and quality, which are intended to be similar to those for pharmaceutical drugs, because of the cost of testing…

the Alliance for Natural Health estimates the cost of obtaining a licence at between £80,000 and £120,000 ($130,000-$190,000) per herb… Dr Rob Verkerk, of the ANH, said: “Thousands of people across Europe rely on herbal medicines to improve their quality of life. They don’t take them because they are sick – they take them to keep healthy.

“It is difficult to imagine a world without the Codex Alimentarius. It has been said that if Codex did not exist, somebody would have to invent it.” – From the UN Food & Agriculture website

This is a call to everyone to stock up on organic seeds. This standard is coming to the US as well. This is another feature of the UN’s Codex Alimentarius, outlaw herbal remedies and supplements… Thank FAO, WHO & Big Pharma. The US food modernization act calls for harmonization with this UN plan.
