Want to be able to continue to buy vitamin and mineral supplements in the strengths you prefer? - Then you will probably find this interview with Paul Anthony Taylor interesting:
The EU and the "Codex Alimentarius" and global food regulations that may limit your future choice options
Extract from the interview:
"in addition to dealing with ordinary foods, Codex also sets global standards for: vitamin and mineral food supplements; health claims; organic foods; genetically modified (GM) foods; food labeling; advertising; food additives and residues of pesticides and veterinary drugs in foods. In all of these areas, the evidence is now inescapable that Codex is increasingly putting economic interests – and particularly those of the pharmaceutical, chemical and GM industries – before human health."
