And now...a new gem from the Land of Absurdity*

Dr. Rolf Grossklaus is the chairman of the Codex Alimentarius Commission. This is what they do:

The Codex Alimentarius Commission was created in 1963 by FAO and WHO to develop food standards, guidelines and related texts such as codes of practice under the Joint FAO/WHO Food Standards Programme. The main purposes of this Programme are protecting health of the consumers and ensuring fair trade practices in the food trade, and promoting coordination of all food standards work undertaken by international governmental and non-governmental organizations.

He has stated publicly that "nutrition is not relevant to health."



*This Land of Absurdity I speak of is my pet name for the government regulators of our food.
