This Saturday at 9am Pacific, the Food Chain Radio show with Michael Olson hosts Attorney Jonathan W. Emord for a conversation about the FDA’s effort to take total control of dietary supplements. (Food Chain Radio #742)

Topics include how Codex Alimentarius demands the U.S. treat its food supplements as toxins; why the U.S. government is acceding to the demands of Codex; and what this compliance will mean to those who use dietary supplements like vitamins and minerals.

That means consumer cost goes up, or the products are no longer available.
