Codex Alimentarius is not a public health commission. It is a trade commission.
Trade is about profit.
In 1962 the UN set out to control all food production across the world. To date Codex has formed over 4000 regulations on everything that can be put into your mouth with the exception of pharmaceuticals.
These "standards" are "voluntary" and supposedly carry no legal weight. Instead, they dictate policy in every quarter of the world and are upheld by the courts.
In 1994 Codex declared NUTRIENTS TO BE TOXINS.
That was just the beginning.
