I recently had the privilege of interviewing Ryan Close about a Declaration of Health Freedom that he drafted. He wrote the Declaration in response to new laws that are threatening the freedoms that Americans enjoy to make their own health decisions.
now threatens our freedom because it subjects our access to vitamin and herbal supplements to the decisions of unelected international bodies, thus mitigating the power of local government and self-government. By delegating authority to make laws the sovereignty of the United States is undermined. Furthermore, it is not clear whether there are conflicting interests controlling this secretive international commission.
Under the tradition of Common Law, upon which our nation’s legal system is based, anything not prohibited is permitted. This means that there are more things that are legal than illegal. Most things that people want to do or grow or eat should be lawful. Only a finite number of prohibited activities or products are illegal. This goes along with the principal of limited government that circumscribes the powers of government while leaving all remaining un-enumerated powers to either self-government or the authority of local governments.
Under Codex, only those foods on a finite list will be legal. All foods will be guilty until proven innocent.
