Just had this as an email from a friend asking me to sign the petition.
The worldwide Pharmaceutical Industry is lobbying to remove the public's right to purchase natural products such a vitamins, minerals and supplements, so that they can hold the massive financial monopoly on drugs and medication, which they sell via allopathic doctors (GPs) and traditional medical providers. Many people see this as yet another infringement of our right to choose more gentle and less invasive natural ways to heal ourselves when we are unwell. If Codex Alimentarius is passed then natural nutrient supplements would be banned: it would be illegal for shops and stores to sell vitamins. Under Codex it would also become law that all foods would have to be sprayed with pesticides, and all animals for food would have to be injected with growth hormones and antibiotics, which would then end up in the food chain. This ultimately will affect the health of humanity worldwide. Also, all natural herbs would be banned, all alternative remedies would no longer be available: there could follow a snowball effect as country after country adopts this new legislation. This one-off email is to alert as many people as possible to this infringement of public choice, which could become law this year. If you care about the removal of your right to choose how to heal yourself then please visit the link below and sign an online petition, or write to your government representative, or perhaps start a campaign in your country to make the people's voice heard.
