Cancer is not just pure ‘bad luck’

By Dr. Aleksandra Niedzwiecki, Dr. Rath Research Institute

In the never-ending race to attract public attention (and better ratings), the media will use any opportunity to bring ‘exciting’ news – but without considering its truthfulness or far-reaching consequences.

The most recent example of such media hype relates to the publication of a scientific study in January 2015, which concluded that cancer is no more than ‘bad luck’.

Taking into account the public health consequences of spreading such nihilistic views based on inadequate data, we feel that this topic needs to be addressed in a wider context.

Following the tragic events in Paris last week, much discussion has ensued regarding the right to freedom of speech. However, amidst all the various arguments, counterarguments and points of debate that have been brought up in the media, one crucial aspect of this issue has been very noticeably ignored. When it comes to the communication of information about the crucial relationships between health, disease and nutrition, free speech is highly restricted. It doesn’t matter which continent you live on, or in what country, the effects are very similar in all of them. The provision of truthful scientific information regarding the numerous ways in which natural therapies can prevent, alleviate, treat or even cure disease is subject to widespread regulatory controls and strict governmental oversight at both national and international levels. So much for freedom of expression, then.

Just over one year ago, following a scandal surrounding the lavish lifestyle and multi-million euro expenditures of a Catholic bishop, Tebartz van Elst, the 5 billion euros per year state-financed power of the German Catholic and Protestant churches was on the verge of collapse.

A single bath costing 15 thousand euros and a table bought for 25 thousand euros were just the tip of the iceberg in the total sum of over 31 million euros – derived from German taxpayers’ money – that the arch-conservative bigot bishop had spent on his residence alone.

With even United Nations officials now openly demanding prosecutions, the US Senate Intelligence Committee's shocking report on the CIA torture program clearly shows that the Complaint submitted to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in 2003 by Matthias Rath MD and others was an important step towards bringing the perpetrators to justice. Accusing George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice and others with causing injury, death, torture and other inhumane acts, war crimes and crimes against humanity, the Complaint was submitted to the ICC’s then prosecutor, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, with the request that it should be considered with the utmost urgency. Eleven years on, with the validity of these accusations having been demonstrated in graphic detail to the entire world, we believe the time has come for the accused to finally be held accountable for their crimes.

In late October, only a matter of days before being installed as the new president of the Brussels EU Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker was forced into an embarrassing u-turn over his plan to put the interests of the pharmaceutical industry at the heart of European health policy decisions. Now however, faced with damaging document leaks regarding secret tax avoidance schemes for multinational corporations in Luxembourg introduced under his controversial tenure as Prime Minister there, pressure is mounting for him to resign. Accused of hypocrisy given that he is now head of the very European executive body supposedly in charge of investigating the covert tax practices of multinationals, his trustworthiness has once again fallen under deep suspicion.

In recent months the so-called “Ice Bucket Challenge” has become a social media phenomenon. The money raised through it over the past month alone towards funding research into amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is already nearing $100 million. Principally promoted by the ALS Association in the United States, the basic idea behind the challenge is that people dump a bucket of ice water over their head, donate money, then nominate a friend to do likewise.
