Dear Senators, Congresspersons, and Dr, Moore:

I am writing to inform you that I totally oppose the German delegation's proposal to the Codex Alimentarious Commission's Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses.

The German proposal would nearly end my access to dietary supplements in the United States by defining certain nutrients as dangerous and will set maximum dosage limits for commonly consumed nutrients. Scores of dietary supplements that I have consumed for years will no longer be available to me, as the major pharmaceutical companies take over the dietary supplement industry, Since no supplement will be able to be sold for therapeutic or preventive reasons, manufacturers will not be able to advertise the numerous health benefits of taking dietary supplements. This ban runs contrary to U.S. law, and is prohibited by the first amendment to the United States Constitution.

I want you to know that I am angered that the U.S. gave away so much of our sovereignty as a nation by signing the GATT treaty, and that I am a staunch supporter of the U.S. Constitution.

BE AWARE that I am distributing this letter to every health food store in my area. Furthermore, that I am linking up with people around the U.S. who are concerned about OTHER freedom Issues, because I WILL NOT tolerate ANY MORE incursions on my FREEDOM! Be aware that I intend to go on radio, TV and the Internet to spread word of this total outrage, Be aware that I am getting a copy of the Knowledge = Freedom Directory in order to help me network with others. (2790 Wrondel Way, #41, Reno NV 89602.) I strongly urge that you do everything in your power to oppose the Codex Commission in this matter, and strongly urge that you write to tell me EXACTLY what you intend to do to rectify this terrible problem.
