Just 100 emails to YOUR Congressional Members
Will Prod Them to Attend the September 20 Codex Briefing!
Please Make Sure They Get Those Emails!
I know that your health freedom is important to you.
I am writing to you because Health Freedom needs your help.
I am asking you to
click here to email the members of your Congressional Delegation and
strongly urge them to attend the Congressional Codex Briefing on September
20, 2005 at noon in Room 2220 Rayburn.
A Washington insider told me two days ago that if we can get as
few as 100 emails and phone calls to each Member of Congress urging him/her
to attend the Codex Briefing, an outstanding number of Congressional Members
will take this unfamiliar outpouring of interest as a signal and come to the
Congress knows virtually nothing about Codex although Congress
can vote down our legal protections like DSHEAwhile opening the door for
Codex without ever realizing there was a connection unless we educate them.
Thatís what the Congressional Codex briefing will do.
We will tell Congress that Codex Alimentarius, the international Food
Code, could prevent Americans from having access to the vitamins and
minerals that many of us believe -- and know -- contribute to their health
and well being.
Congress is our main defense against Codex, a threat of which they have
generally never heard! The Codex Briefing will tell them what Codex is, what
it will mean to them and their families and to their constituents. It will
also inform the members of Congress about what they need to do to protect
the US from this looming health disaster.
But I guarantee you that if you do not
send these easy emails or call the Congressional Switchboard
(1-202-225-3121) to youíre your Congressmen and women to attend the Codex
Briefing, they will not attend. It is a simple as 1-2-3-4:
- No constituent outcry via your emails and phone calls
= no attendance.
- No attendance = no information about what
Codex really is and what it means to the health of every man,
woman and child in the United States.
- No information = no staunch bulwark
of defense against this health and health freedom threat.
- No staunch bulwark = no more health freedoms and
precious little health.
Congress is our main defense against dangerous and
deadly Codex regulations becoming our laws here in the US. Yet Congress
knows nothing about Codex.
Congress, for example, has before it at least 5 bills (http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/bills)
which would seriously damage or completely destroy the rights of Americans
to enjoy access to nutrients, supplements and herbs classified as foods with
no upper limits on their use. That access is assured by DSHEA, the 1994
Dietary Supplements Health and Education Act, passed by unanimous
Did Congress suddenly see the light and suddenly all of them were
converted to Natural Medicine in 1994? Hardly! We, the People, were up on
our feet making a whole lot of noise about the health freedom issue. In
fact, Congress got the distinct impression that if anyone, no matter who
they were, dared to interfere with our nutrient and supplement access he or
she would never go back to Congress again.
Now Congress is on the front lines again, and, amazingly enough, most of
the men and women, of either party, that we elected to do the legislative
work of this country have not a clue about the impending Codex battle.
Most members of Congress have never
heard of Codex!
I know because the Natural Solutions Foundation has called hundreds of
Congressional Offices and talked to hundreds of Congressional Health Aides.
They and their bosses had literally never heard of Codex before we mentioned
it to them and sent them material. They only knew what their party leaders
and their lobbyist friends tell them. And, sadly, neither party is speaking
out for your health.
Guess What! There are no nutrient companies making major financial
contributions to Congress and pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into
matching lobbying $$ to rival Big Pharmaís vast investment in Congress.
Last year, Big Pharma spent $780 Million on
Congressional lobbying, according to USA Today (April, 2005). And We, the
People? What have we got with which to contend against that? We have:
- votes Ė Congress knows that irate
constituents spell re-election trouble, big time
- truth Ė which has its own special ring:
people know it when they hear it and they resonate with it
- the shared human realities that all of
us face, including Congressmen and women, as they create families and as
they age: good health is supported and sustained by clean, unadulterated
food and high potency nutrients.
They know that, like the rest of us, if you violate those requirements
you and your family will sicken and perhaps die. Senators and
Representatives have families that they care about and bodies that they
Until they understand, as clearly as you do that
- high potency, effective and clinically meaningful supplements are not
- unadulterated food and drink is essential to a healthy life,
there will be no reason for them to protect anything against Codex, least
of all, their constituents!
Please help get your Congressional Delegation to the Codex Briefing on
September 20, 2005 at noon, Room 2220 Rayburn.
Itís a matter of life and death:
yours, mine and theirs.
Two More Items: Thanks for Doing Both!
Start a meetup. Itís simple, itís easy and itís a really great political
organization tool. Go to
http://healthfreedom.meetup.com. This site lets you tell others in your
area that you are interested in health freedom and lets them find you. You
pick a time, a location (Starbucks is a typical place) and then you list
yourself as the organizer. People will contact you and then, voila, thereís
a meet up when and where you create one.
The Natural Solutions Foundation will provide you with Talking Points,
Action Steps, Organizational Tools, etc. Just let me know you have
organized a meet up by writing to me at
What a terrific way to hook up with others who feel the same way you do!
Join the Health Freedom 400. If only 400 people each gave just $25 we
would reach our goal of $10,000 is jig time.
Please support our work. Thatís simple and easy, too. Our fund raising
campaign is in Day 14 so we are almost at the half way mark. Wonít you
give generously and help support the fight to keep our natural health
