Tell FDA to Support GE Labeling at CODEX

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

One Codex Committee is considering adopting a very modest guidance document on labeling of genetically engineered food.  The U.S., almost alone among nations, has been opposing any Codex guidance at all, claiming that genetically engineered foods are not different from conventional foods. We hope at the upcoming meeting in Quebec (May 9-13) that the U.S. will allow the very modest document to move ahead but FDA needs to hear that U.S. citizens want action. So far FDA has mostly heard from the biotech industry, an industry that adamantly opposes labeling.

What is Codex?
The Codex Alimentarius Commission is the UN food standards agency.  Codex develops standards for everything from pesticide residues to how much fish must be in fish sticks.  Codex standards are voluntary, but are frequently adopted by national governments because under World Trade Organization (WTO) rules, Codex standards are immune from WTO trade challenges.

Send your comments to FDA through next Thursday, May 5 to this address: ccfl@fda.hhs.gov

SAMPLE MESSAGE TO FDA:

RE: CCFL Meeting, May 9-13, 2011, Agenda Item 6

We urge FDA to support issuance of Codex guidance on labeling of genetically engineered food. [I/we] strongly support mandatory labeling of all genetically engineered food, and is concerned that voluntary labeling of non-GMO foods in the United States could be threatened by World Trade Organization challenges. We believe that Codex should make clear that labeling of genetically engineered food is valid and legal, as long as it is truthful.

In response to consumer concerns, many foods are labeled in the United States as not containing genetically engineered ingredients. In addition, FDA itself, in relation to its decision on the genetically engineered Aquabounty salmon, is considering whether the salmon should carry a label. FDA held a hearing on labeling this salmon in September 2010.

It therefore makes no sense for the United States to oppose issuance of minimal Codex guidance on this topic. A document is currently pending at the Codex Committee on Food Labeling (CCFL) which represents the bare minimum of guidance that is needed. We urge the FDA to support forwarding of this document in its current form to the Codex Alimentarius Commission.

Sincerely,
[YOUR NAME AND ORGANIZATION/BUSINESS]

Pyramid Shape UFO Sightings

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

Over the last year or so hundreds of people around the world have been witness to what appears to be a new type of UFO (see video clips below). Enormous pyramid shaped UFOs have been seen from Colombia to China, from Russia to France.

UFO experts have debated as to whether these are the craft of an extraterrestrial race that has just chanced upon earth and its humanoid inhabitants-or are these the spaceships of a civilization that has interacted with humanity for millennia, inspiring the building of ancient pyramid structures from Egypt to Central America.

Cynical commentators have suggested that all of these images might simply be computer generated graphics.

In the last month these two sightings, one in Japan and one in Spain, have come to light. In one clip the UFO is seen landing. Are the alien occupants of these craft preparing for open contact?

UFO Seen Over China

Friday, March 5th, 2010

What is being hailed as the clearest ever UFO footage (view below) and final and definitive proof of alien visitation to planet earth has been filmed in China in the last fortnight.

ON January 28 at 8.40am multiple witnesses saw a giant pyramid shaped UFO briefly hover above the city of Xi’an.

The UFO was seen for no more than two minutes and one witness, Mr Yu managed to film around 15 seconds of footage of this historic event.

Mr Yu described the UFO as being covered in uneven patterns and shapes as well as having glowing purple light coming out of its underside. Another smaller UFO was seen at one stage move in the vicinity of the larger craft.

Both UFOs were seen by more than one witness despite their brief appearance.

‘This is astonishing, landmark footage’ one Chinese ufologist noted.

it is generally agreed that this footage is not computer generated and the event occurred although some are claiming the object was a giant kite that briefly appeared from behind fog.

Most viewers doubt that explanation and see this footage as definitive proof that a civilization that travels between worlds using pyramid shaped craft are about to make open contact with humanity.

UFO Near Crop Circle In 1990

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

July 1990, Milk Hill, Wiltshire UK. Well known crop circle researcher Steve Alexander took this controversial piece of footage while filming a crop circle in a field. In an adjacent field, he spotted a small ball with a metallic glow and pointed his camera toward it. The object hovered and slowly moved across the open fields when suddenly it picked up speed, and passed a tractor and operator. The tractor driver, Liam Beasant, was found and indeed confirmed sighting the object. It was “unlike anything he had seen before,” he stated.
