What do you know about Codex Alimentarius and Monsanto?

How do you feel about it all? Is December 31, 2009 a date that will live in infamy? Are they really going to demand that all animals grown for food must be injected with their antibiotics? Is genetically modified food beneficial to anyone but the jerks who profit off of it?
Update: Monsanto attacked and corrupted the soy industry as well as many others like corn and pigs. I'm vegetarian learning how to properly eat vegan, but I worry that ALL of the food available to the working-class is being tampered with and corrupted.
Update 2: First two answers are pure gold.
