Raw Fitness week in Seattle; New herbs & Supplement bill
- Hi folks,
Here are a few news items of interest to
our community. The third annoucement below
is a little scary. It seems that we'll need
a doctors prescription for raw herbs and supplements!
Raw Health & Fitness Week with Dr. Doug Graham and Prof. Rozi
Sept. 2-9, 2005 and/or Sept. 11-18, 2005
Health and Fitness Week outside of Seattle, WA is
just such an event, reminiscent of summer camp,
but for adults, and with several huge advantages.
A maximum of 24 "campers", are served by almost as
many staff personnel. Educational presentations,
organized by Prof. Rozi Gruben, acclaimed as one
of the world's top ranking health and fitness
experts, are offered after each meal and are geared
to help you improve your own health and lifestyle.
The food is Dr. Doug Graham's own "Simply Delicious"
raw cuisine, the same foods he uses when coaching
world-class athletes. ect...
Seeing the World Through New Eyes by Dr. Doug Graham
Rozi and I are thrilled to announce that at 1:15 p.m. on Wednesday,
April 6th, 2005, Faychesca Celeste Graham was born into the world.
Faye Celeste has a full head of hair and at 5 pounds 10 ounces is
completely deserving of her names, which mean "fairy" and "heavenly"
RAW FOOD BULLETIN #209 (April 14, 2005)
ACT NOW TO KEEP NUTRITIONAL HERBS & SUPPLEMENTS LEGAL!
Your right to choose your vitamin, mineral and other supplements may
end in June, 2005. After that, U.S. supplements will be defined and
controlled by the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the World Health
Organization (WHO). The CODEX ALIMENTARIUS (Food Code) is setting the
supplement standards for all countries in the WTO. They will be
enforced by the WTO and will override U.S. laws.
Under the Code, any supplement with potency higher than RDA (minimal
strength) is a "drug" requiring a prescription and must be produced
by drug companies. Over 5000 safe items now in health stores will be
banned, terminating health stores as we now know them. New
supplements will be banned unless given very expensive CODEX testing
and approval. CODEX now applies to Norway and Germany, where zinc
tablets rose from $4 to $52 per bottle. Echinacea rose from $14 to
$153 (both examples are now allowed by prescription only). No
essential amino acids, Essential Fatty Acids, or other essential
supplements such as DMAE, DHEA, CoQ10, MSM, beta-carotene, etc., are
Here's what you can do to stop the momentum of CODEX:
(1) Spread the word as much as possible.
(2) Inform yourselves via these websites:
(3) Oppose bills S.722 and H.R.3377. These support the CODEX
restrictions with U.S. laws, changing the DSHEA law.
(4) Support H. R.1146, which would restore the sovereignty of the
U.S. Constitution over CODEX, etc.
(5) Contact multi-level health marketing groups that can get their
members to inform the government.
