Does it contain CODEX and now nutritional supplements and vitamins will be regulated?

1. How Monsanto Is Sabotaging Efforts to Label Genetically Modified Food

June 26, 2012

As the 2012 Farm Bill continues to take shape in the halls of the United States Congress, the immense influence of corporate interests is on display.

On June 21 the United States Senate voted overwhelmingly against the Sanders Amendment that would have allowed states to pass legislation that required food and beverage products to label whether or not they contain genetically engineered ingredients.

The amendment, proposed by Independent Senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders, is particularly relevant as many states prepare to vote on a ballot initiatives that would require such labelling of genetically modified (GM) foods.

2. I appreciate your article as I'm very interested in GMOs too.

But what about whether the federal government will regulate, control, and restrict our ability to buy nutritional supplements, as much as we want, without a doctor's squib?
