IAHF Webmaster: Breaking News, Whats New, What to Do, Codex, EU FSD,
All Countries


IAHF List:

I'm sending this in response to a message left on the IAHF answering
machine today. Someone who's sister is a chiropractor called to inform me
that we "shouldn't be appealing to the grass roots and to practitioners
for donations to fight this Codex battle, we should be making our pitch to
the vitamin companies."

We ARE, and will CONTINUE to, but you must all awaken to our political
REALITY which is that Big Pharma's tentacles reach deeply into the vitamin
trade associations and MASSIVE spin has been done against our message.

To give a CURRENT EXAMPLE: A huge number of American vitamin companies
and health food stores are members of a trade association called NNFA
(National Nutritional Foods Assn).

NNFA just published a spin piece against our message in NNFA Today-
November/December 2004 issue. The spin piece is titled "International
Natural Products Regulations Q & A: What Effect Do They Really Have on
the U.S.?" In this spin piece they ask bad questions in order to erect
"straw man" arguments which they proceed to "knock down" thus "proving"
that Codex is a "non issue" and "don't worry, NNFA is handling things." (I
was sent a PDF file of this piece by someone on the IAHF list, its not on
the web.)

The TRUTH on this issue can be seen in Suzanne Harris's article DO
at http://www.thelawloft.com/Freedom/THREE_INTERLOCKING_EVENTS.mht

The spin piece against us was generated by NNFA's legal counsel which
is Sidley Austin Brown & Wood, LLP (a huge multinational law firm with
offices on 3 continents which has numerous pharmaceutical companies as
clients as they state on their own website:


THE FOOD & DRUG GROUP (Division of Sidley and Austin)

"The Food & Drug group represents major pharmaceutical, food, and
medical device manufacturers on a variety of FDA, USDA, FTC, DEA and health care
matters, and has played a major role in the evolution of the functional
food and dietary supplement markets. We provide counsel regularly on EU
strategy and our Hong Kong office advises on drug, device and food
regulation in China."

I've been trying (in vain) for several years to warn members of NNFA
that they're being led to the cliff from within, and that they should file
FRAUD charges against their trade association but they're too busy making
money to pay any attention and they're not going to start paying attention
now which leaves me with no CHOICE but to appeal to the grass roots and to
alternative practitioners for assistance. Dr. Whitaker and Dr. Wright
understand this.

NNFA also belongs to IADSA (International Alliance of Dietary
Supplement Associations) which I began exposing years ago as a controlled opposition
group thats only going through the MOTIONS of "defending" the supplement
industry- see http://iahf.com/iadsa/index.html

We're all going to be TWISTING IN THE WIND if ANH fails to get the
donations they need for the PR campaign they're conducting now to back the
submission on Nutrient Risk Assessment they just made to the World Health
Organization which is filling in the blanks on allowable potency levels at

We're all going to be TWISTING IN THE WIND if ANH fails to get the
funds they need to pay their lawyers, and they'll be in court on JANUARY 25th in
a bid to overturn the EU Food Supplement Directive.

We have not given up approaching vitamin companies, but consumers and
alternative practitioners desiring to maintain access to supplements have
NO CHOICE but to recognize that our POLITICAL REALITY is that Pharma's
tentacles reach very DEEPLY into the dietary supplement industry making it
EXCEEDINGLY DIFFICULT for those of us on the front lines to get our
message across to them and THAT is why we created the Emergency DVD of our
health freedom meeting in San Diego.

But don't think you're helping much by sending just the $15. we're
asking for the DVD. We might not even break even on the production cost.

We're making it available CHEAPLY in order to get the word out as FAST
AS POSSIBLE, but unless we see some substantial monthly donations, we're
