It’s a video which is knowing substantial viral success over the internet and of course the issue of freedom in health and food is an important one.
This is the crux of the message:
If the WTO succeeds in harmonizing world legislation around the Codex Alimentarius,
– Seven of the most dangerous compounds, now prohibited in 176 countries, will be legal (it will be forbidden to stop them)
– Lots of therapeutic compounds will be as illegal as heroin

The most interesting allegations against the new system start at 9:30 minutes in the speech.
Of course, this is very alarming, so caution is required with this message. One of our network members said: “I think the video greatly misunderstands and exaggerates them.
