Take Action

Now that you have done your "homework" and better understand the issues related to Codex, what are you going to do?

For those who are moved to take action, the American Holistic Health Association (AHHA) offers this page of constructive ideas to consider. We welcome your suggestions for additional options.

Increase awareness about Codex. Mention Codex to everyone you know - your friends, neighbors, colleagues, relatives, healthcare professionals and health food store owners. Invite those who are interested in learning more to visit this Codex site -

Share your opinions with the members of the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives who represent your area. Not sure who your elected officials are? The American Association for Health Freedom has a handy Federal Officials online searchable database where you can enter your zip code and get not only your Elected Officials (Senator and House), but extensive data including contact information.

When you communicate with an elected official, the most effective ways to deliver your message are e-mail and fax. The content of your message does not need to be lengthy. Respect their time by being organized and brief. State the issue you are addressing and the actions you believe would bring about positive results. Be original. Be specific. Be constructive.

  • Health freedom groups recommend that individuals go on record with their elected officials that protection of freedom of choice in health-related matters is of vital importance.

  • The Central American Free Trade Agreement (known as CAFTA) is a trade agreement between the United States and five Central American nations (Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Costa Rica and Nicaragua) that was negotiated by the president and must be ratified by Congress. CAFTA is viewed by many to be a precursor to the signing of the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas (FTAA). While the purpose of these trage agreements is to promote free trade among Western Hemisphere countries, many point out special interest influences that could have serious negative impact on many populations and on personal rights. Also, there are countries in Central and South American that could use provisions in these agreements to pressure or force the U.S. to harmonize with the Codex Guidelines. The CAFTA treaty passed in the Senate June 30. Now that House members have returned from vacation break (July 11) the CAFTA House vote is expected as soon as supporters are confident of sufficient votes to pass.
