Codex Alimentarius and Food Irradiation in the U.S.

Updated excerpt from 
Codex Alimentarius -- The End of Health Freedom

I have written several articles dealing with the risk assessment methods used by Codex Alimentarius in order to water down the levels of nutrition available in vitamin and mineral supplements, as well as the potential removal of many supplements from the market entirely. All of this is of vital importance. However, Codex Alimentarius Guidelines are relevant to many more issues than just vitamins and minerals. One of these issues has to do with food irradiation.

Clearly a threat to public health, irradiated foods are not safe for human consumption and contribute to a host of health problems such as cancer and birth defects. Irradiation also causes genetic damage to cells.[1] One of the reasons for this is the fact that irradiated food is exposed to gamma rays of radioactive material or electron beams causing chemical changes in the food.

Essentially, the food becomes mutated by this exposure, a condition which does not occur in nature, and is the cause for many forms of cancer and genetic modification.[2]  Yet, Codex pushes irradiation as if it were a great tool of disinfection with no adverse side effects at all.

 According to Codex, as designed by the UN and with the guiding help of the chappy who oversaw the manufacture of Xyclon-B for Auschwitz, nutrients are a toxin, a toxin that must be erradicated from the human foodchain ...

"Codex mandates that ALL FOOD must be irradiated, unless grown locally and eaten raw, including Organic Food of course ..."

 ... f**k Me ..... Has anyone ever got any good news? Or is that a daft question ...?

Watch this VIDEO you. Because if this stuff comes true, it's all over for you unless you're happy on all fours, in your square metre of ground, munching on some scrawny rocket shoots like some latter day Nebuchadnezzar ....

The Codex Alimentarius Irradiated Food Cover-up


Radura symbol - Wiki Image

Updated excerpt from 
Codex Alimentarius -- The End of Health Freedom

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

In the last article, I briefly discussed a proposal made by the FDA which was very similar to one made by Congress five years earlier. This proposal would have allowed production companies to use terms such as “electronically pasteurized” instead of “irradiated” and, going further, simply allow the food to be categorized as “pasteurized” with no indication whatsoever that the food had been subject to radiation.

The proposal made by the FDA in April, 2007 is an interesting one indeed. In the opening summary of the text, the FDA states that one of the purposes of the proposal is to make it so that “only those irradiated foods in which the irradiation causes a material change in the food, or a material change in the consequences that may result from the use of the food, bear the radura logo and the term ‘irradiation,’ or a derivative thereof, in conjunction with explicit language describing the change in the food or its conditions of use.”[1]

While this may seem like a strengthening of a rule, in reality it is not. This proposal is merely another cover mechanism for the pretense of protecting the consumer with strong regulation, while allowing industry to do just what it wants, i.e. produce high levels of irradiated food to cover up unsanitary manufacturing practices.

I cannot believe how they use a symbol of "green" and so innocent-looking.  Irradiated food has properties that I cannot stand, nor eat.  The biggest thing I notice is that it remains looking fresh in color and outward appearance.  But, in actuality it is rotten.  Texture and the big giveaway -- taste & smell -- reveal it is in reality rotten, but just not visibly-so.

What a great money-maker for the food industry.  Indefinite shelf-life as far as "looks."  Irradiation should be outlawed immediately.

Love, e

Codex Alimentarius Revised General Standards Allow for Higher Levels of Food Irradiation

Updated excerpt from 
Codex Alimentarius -- The End of Health Freedom

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

Although the questionable means by which the General Standards For Irradiated Food was ratified are enough cause for concern in and of themselves, the revision of Codex’s position presents an even bigger danger to the food supply than the original version.  This revised policy seems to be part of an ongoing disregard by federal agencies who are charged with protecting the public.  Just recently, the EPA modified their Protective Action Guides for radiation exposure to Americans in the wake of the Fukushima disaster.

The revised General Standard For Irradiated Food is remarkable because of its crafty use of technical wording to allow much higher, even limitless, amounts of irradiation in food. Prior to the change in 2003, the limits were set at 10 kGy, an amount of radiation that is the equivalent of 330 million chest x-rays, a procedure that is dangerous in and of itself when only done once. [1]

However, even the limit set prior to 2003 is not as strict as the current FDA regulations and the regulations of most other nations. Currently, the FDA sets limits on the amount of food irradiation on a case-by-case basis with some foods allowed to receive more radiation than others.[2]

Codex, however, makes no such distinction and levels a blanket endorsement of irradiation regardless of the type of food. [3] Nevertheless, most of the upper limits for radiation set by even the FDA (which are themselves intolerable) are lower than those set by Codex.  By FDA standards, only two categories are allowed the pre-2003 Codex 10kGy maximum.

WTO Codex to Allow Dangerous Levels of Food Irradiation
http://www.organicconsumers.org/corp/071403_wto_irradiation.cfm

From Ag Biz Examiner #267
By Al Krebs
July 10, 2003

CONSUMER GROUPS
DENOUNCE CODEX COMMISSION
RULING ALLOWING FOODS
TO BE IRRADIATED AT ANY DOSE

Leading consumer groups in the United States, Canada and Italy today condemned the weakening of international food irradiation rules, which will allow any food to be irradiated at any dose, regardless of how high. The decision ignores well-documented evidence that irradiated foods may not be safe for human consumption --- including the destruction of vitamins and the formation of chemicals linked to cancer and birth defects.

The decision was made in Rome on Monday by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, which sets food safety standards for 168 nations, and which operates under the auspices of the United Nations (UN) and World Health Organization (WHO). The decision was made over the objections of more 10 countries, including Austria, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Mexico and Spain.

"The UN and WHO have abandoned their mission to protect the health and welfare of the world’s population," said Andrianna Natsoulas of Public Citizen’s Critical Mass Energy and Environment Program. "People who eat irradiated foods will become guinea pigs in what will amount to one of the largest feeding experiments in history."

"This is the final straw in the reckless pursuit of using irradiation, which is still an experimental technology, to solve complicated food safety problems," said Andrea Peart of the Sierra Club of Canada. "This decision is a severe blow against the rights of nations to establish their own food safety laws. It is undemocratic on its face."

Among the toxic chemicals formed in irradiated foods are 2-alkylcyclobutanones (2-ACBs), which recently were found to promote cancer development and cause genetic damage in rats, and cause genetic damage to human cells. Other toxic chemicals that have been detected in irradiated foods include several compounds that are known or suspected to cause cancer or birth defects, including benzene, ethanol, toluene and methyl ethyl ketone.

Monday’s decision by Codex removed the maximum radiation dose to which foods can be "treated," which had been in place since 1979. The previous limit was ten kiloGray, a dose of radiation equivalent to 330 million chest X-rays. At such doses, the chemical composition of foods can be altered; vitamins, proteins and other nutrients can be destroyed; and flavor, odor and texture can be corrupted.

Giulio Labbro Francia of the Italian Consumer’s group, Movimento Dei Consumatori, responded to the decision by saying, "We are at a loss to explain Codex’s contention that irradiated foods are safe to eat in the face of so much evidence to the contrary. Now consumers throughout the world are in danger of the unknown health impacts."

In a minor concession to consumer organizations, which fought against the removal of the limit, countries would have to demonstrate that irradiating food above 10 kiloGray meets a "legitimate technological purpose." Because this requirement was not defined further, however, countries are essentially free to irradiate foods at any dose.

Codex standards are enforceable through the World Trade Organization, meaning that member nations that have food irradiation laws stricter than the new Codex standard could have their laws challenged and overruled. Currently, only Brazil has a food irradiation law in keeping with the new Codex standard, meaning that laws in every other nation --- including all 15 European Union countries --- are now in jeopardy.

Codex also elected a new chairperson this week, Dr. Stuart Slorach of Sweden’s National Food Administration. Dr. Slorach is seen as being more attentive to consumer needs than his predecessor, Thomas Billy of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
