Soon, Americans will very likely be eating food that doesn't even begin to meet basic US food safety standards.

Thanks for the info, Brian. Way too many secrets hidden from the public here....our taxes pay for these "deals" to be made. Foreign trade deals have been protested for many, many years now and have only gotten more secret.

Send this article to everyone you know, ask them to do the same. The corporate media is silent, of course. Congress won't even be allowed to debate this, which is bad for them because they will miss all the bribes....These trade deals could eliminate a century of [admittedly minimal] progress in food safety, environmental preservation, labor rights, etc., etc.
I'm beginning to be quite convinced that this and other obviously detrimental policies like the financial crisis and the "failure" to prevent this, is actually more than failure. These companies are doing a service to certain destructive elements in our government and elite circles, and that is why they coddle these companies despite their sociopolitical behavior. They in this case are providing "population control" in the same way that the big banks provided the greatest transfer of wealth in history. Essentially they are doing economically what Hitler wished to do genetically...

Meanwhile, Codex ploughs ahead with eliminating our natural supplements for our 'safety'!

Nothing new, as corporations and business want secrecy to carry out the maximum amount of trade in products that are not always safe or beneficial. As 'free trade' expands globally ensuring even more unsafe and cheaper labour world wide we can look forward to even more secrecy and deception. After all, we should all be smiling and keeping happy at the prospect of free enterprise adding more profits to the CEO's pockets...they believe what they do is good for everyone right? Wrong.
