Mangalore, India (PRWEB) July 13, 2006
The Natural Solutions Foundation announced today at a Press Conference at the Mangalore Press Club that Professor B. M. Hegde, MD, one of the world's leading experts and advocates on Whole Person Healing and natural health, has agreed to chair its Indian organization. Dr. Hegde's commitments and contribution to natural health, http://www.bmhegde.com/, span more than 40 years so his involvement with the Natural Solutions Foundation, http://www.HealthFreedomUSA.org, was only natural.
At a press conference at the Mangalore Press Club Professor Hegde introduced the Mangalore press corps to both the work of the Natural Solutions Foundation in their crusade for natural health and health freedom around the world and to their President and Director who are visiting India in order to meet with consumer leaders and decision makers around the threats to such freedom presented by Codex Alimentarius, the world's food standard setting body.
Dr. Hegde, whose new book, What Doctors Don't Get to Study in Medical School (Anshan Ltd, July 1, 2006)has been described as "a polemic against and an appreciation of the art and practice of medicine," http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1904798845/qid=1152556098/sr=11-1/ref=sr_11_1/002-0353665-9603274?n=283155, dovetails with the position of the Natural Solutions Foundation which supports the right of people everywhere to choose clean, unadulterated food and natural methods for promoting and recovering health if they choose them. These natural methods include high potency nutrients and herbs, options which are seriously threatened by Codex Alimentarius (Codex).
Codex is the world's food standard setting body and was formed at the request of the United Nations in 1962. It is administered and funded by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and meets once a year in either Rome or Geneva. However, its committees meet throughout the year and propose standards and guidelines to Codex for ratification or forward movement each year at that meeting.
The Natural Solutions Foundation, a privately funded organization with no industrial ties or support, has been vigorously engaged in alerting both consumers and decision makers in the United States, Africa and India about the threat that Codex poses to their health and health freedom and, most important, what countries can do to protect their people from an adulterated food supply and institutionalized under nutrition mandated by many of the Codex Alimentarius standards and guidelines. The Natural Solutions Foundation believes that many Codex ratifications are driven by the interests of the multinational corporations which are often called the 5 "Bigs": Big Pharma, Big Agribiz, Big Chema, Big Biotechna and Big Medica since those 5 corporate constituencies derive the most benefit from Codex standards and guidelines and put large amounts of resources into NGOs and other means of influencing the decisions of Codex, a largely unknown, but highly influential international body.
Codex standards and guidelines serve as one source of decision making in trade disputes involving food for the World Trade Organization, which levies penalties against countries who create "barriers to trade." Although many mistakenly believe that Codex standards and guidelines are mandatory on member nations, in fact they are voluntary and may be replaced by each country with standards which are based on better science and enacted into law by a county with a pro-health agenda. The Natural Solutions Foundation's Codex Book, http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/resources/books.shtml, applies this principle to the restrictive and destructive Codex Vitamin and Mineral Guideline, which treats nutrients as toxins. Their informative DVD, "Nutricide: the DVD" details the origin of Codex from its conception by a convicted German War Criminal, http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/aboutcodex/dvd.shtml.
This pair of health-freedom enhancing actions is being shared with consumers and decision makers world wide by Major General Albert N. Stubblebine III (US Army, Ret.), the President of the Natural Solutions Foundation and Rima E. Laibow, MD, its Medical Director.
In their talk at the Press Club in Mangalore today they shared these realities with the press and urged them to help alert the public and Indian leaders about these challenges to health freedom and natural health options while celebrating Dr. Hegde's appointment as the Chairman of the Natural Solutions Foundation's Indian organization.
Dr. Hegde brings with him a 40+ year of outstanding luster in academia and clinical medicine and as a spokesperson for the health and health freedom which the Natural Solutions Foundation supports and endorses.
