Join the Citizens Petition and Keep America CODEX-FREE!
US law prevents our government from "HARMonizing" with any International Standard which violates US law. We are reminding the US government, and our CODEX Delegation, of that law! Take a bold step for health and health freedom with us by joining in the Natural Solutions Foundation's Citizen's Petition.
On June 1, 2005, the Natural Solutions Foundation will present a ground-breaking Citizens' Petition to the United States CODEX Office and the Secretaries and heads of all involved Departments and Agencies (FDA, USDA, HHS, DOC, FDA), along with President Bush and Congressional leaders, to remind them of their responsibility to the American People to protect us from "HARMonization" with any international standards which violate US law.
A 1997 law prohibits the US from harmonizing with any international standards contrary to US law. Nonetheless, the FDA and USDA, Departments of Commerce, Health and Human Services and the EPA have been illegally proceeding by harmonizing with standards that do, in fact, violate our laws and protections. A good example of this illegality is the Dietary Supplements Health Education Act of 1994 (or DSHEA) which is seriously threatened by the Vitamin and Mineral Standard of CODEX ALIMENTARIUS, set for ratification in July, 2005 at the CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Commission meeting in Rome.
The Natural Health Organization Citizen's Petition can have new petitioners added at any time. Join in the Citizen's petition and let the US CODEX Office know that you oppose losing your health and health freedoms! This is a simple, practical, and effective step you can take to do something about the threat posed by CODEX.
Citizens Petitions are a special form of communication with the government which allows ordinary people to remind the government of its responsibilities toward them.

Dear Dr. Scarbrough:
As a citizen deeply concerned with health and health freedom in the United States I wish to join the Natural Solutions Foundation in urging the policy of the United States in general, and your office and the CODEX Delegation in particular to adopt policies and positions which are strictly in line with US law preventing harmonization with any international standard or guideline which is in conflict with, or contradiction of, United States law.
In support of that position I wish to join in the Citizen's Petition submitted to you on June 1, 2005 and to the Secretaries of Agriculture, Commerce, Health and Human Services, the Food and Drug Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, President Bush and Congressional leaders of both parties urging conformity to US law in all dealings with CODEX ALIMENTARIUS Commissions, committees, decisions and actions.
Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter. CODEX standards, especially the Vitamin and Mineral Guideline, now at Step 8, threatens our rights and laws in serious ways. This standard represents a violation of the significant protection offered to us in this country by laws like DSHEA and similar statutes.
Please bring the US policy and activates of the US CODEX Office and the US CODEX Delegation into conformity with the legal protections we have won with such difficulty in the United States.
Yours in health and freedom,
