Re: Codex

Dear Ms. Hein,

I am sorry for miss placing your letter of Sept. 9, 2005. Naturway is a member of the National Nutritional Foods Association which is the voice of the health food industry. The position they take is that due to the law of DESHEA, Codex will not affect the U.S..
.. In order for Codex to become law here, DESHEA would have to be ruled null and void. The NNFA is continuing fighting any changes to DESHA. The NNFA has an office in Washington DC to monitor and contact the Senators, and Congressmen regarding this law. DESHA was made into law in 1994. Since that time, at least 50% of the members of congress have changed. Every year since then, Health food stores from all over the country get together to lobby on Capital Hill for Lobby Day sponsored by the NNFA. This organization has been around since 1936. Naturway has been a member for over 60 years. Next month I will be personally going to Washington DC for Lobby Day as I have done for the last 12 years. Please look at the NNFA site at and click on Codex for up to the minute information. Thank you for your concern regarding this important issue.
