International Tribunal Accuses Monsanto Of Committing ‘Ecocide’
Following a two-day hearing held in the Netherlands in October 2016, five international judges have accused Monsanto of engaging in “practices which have negatively impacted the right to a healthy environment, the right to food, and the right to health." In their advisory opinion, published on 18 April 2017, they stated that were the crime of ‘Ecocide’ to be recognized in international law, the facts reported to them could fall within the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court. Calling for the primacy of international human and environmental rights law to be asserted, the judges wrote that “the time is ripe to consider multinational enterprises as subjects of law that could be sued in the case of infringement of fundamental rights.”
Who Knows What’s Best For Your Children?
You? Or The Government?
A legal battle currently taking place in the UK raises fundamental questions regarding who is ultimately responsible for the health and wellbeing of our children. The case at hand concerns an eight-month-old child, Charlie Gard, who has a rare condition known as mitochondrial depletion syndrome. A fatal disorder affecting the genetic building blocks that provide energy to the body’s cells, it results in progressive muscle weakness and brain damage. With Charlie now critically ill, his parents want to take him to the United States where a pioneering treatment is available. But in a decision that has understandably devastated them, a High Court judge has ruled that the hospital treating the boy can withdraw life support and let him die. The parents now have until 2 May to decide whether to lodge an appeal.
Long-Term Use Of Antibiotics May Raise Risk Of Bowel Cancer
A new study has found that people taking antibiotics for long periods of time have an increased risk of developing polyps in the colon, a known precursor of bowel cancer. Published in the journal Gut, the research adds further weight to evidence that maintaining a healthy intestinal microbiota may play a key role in the prevention of cancer. With antibiotic resistance now a growing problem worldwide, and natural approaches to controlling infections already having been discovered, the study also provides a timely reminder of the urgent need to transform our healthcare systems towards using safe, natural, preventive approaches that are free from side effects.
Demise Of The Brussels EU Moves Closer:
UK Government Issues Formal Notice Of
Intention To Leave
On Wednesday 29 March, 2017, nine months after the people of the United Kingdom had dramatically voted in a national referendum to leave the Brussels EU, prime minister Theresa May issued formal notice of the country’s intention to withdraw from the undemocratic political construct. In a letter delivered to Donald Tusk, president of the so-called European Council, she described how the Brexit referendum on 23 June, 2016, was a vote to restore self-determination for the British people. By officially triggering Article 50 of the so-called Lisbon Treaty and kick-starting the two-year divorce period it sets out, her letter effectively brought the demise of the Brussels EU a significant step closer.
Death Of David Rockefeller At 101: Media Obituaries Ignore His Central Role In Bilderberg Group
On 20 March the death was announced of billionaire banker and pharmaceutical ‘business with disease’ investor David Rockefeller. Aged 101 he was the last surviving grandson of oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller, founder of the Standard Oil company monopoly in the 19th century. While the mainstream media was predictably gushing in its praise for David Rockefeller and his family’s vast wealth, one important aspect of his life was pointedly ignored. Amidst the countless thousands of words written about him in all the obituaries, practically none were devoted to the key role he had played as guiding hand behind the secretive Bilderberg group.
Study Finds High-Dose B Vitamins Have Protective Effect Against Air Pollution
In further evidence that essential micronutrients are highly effective in protecting human health, a new study from the United States has found that high-dose B vitamins may “completely offset” the damage caused by the most dangerous type of air pollution. Published in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) journal, the researchers showed that exposure to fine particulate matter of the type produced by burning fossil fuels in motor vehicles can be mitigated by a daily supplement of B vitamins. With such pollution being known to have significant adverse effects on human health, the finding has profound implications for public health policies worldwide.
LESSONS FROM HISTORY: Thomas Müntzer – Violent Revolution Is Never The Answer
Thomas Müntzer (1489-1525) was born in Saxony, Germany. He received an academic education and decided very early on that he wanted to devote his life to God and the people. Even before he met his mentor Martin Luther, however, Müntzer had distanced himself from the Catholic Church. He felt the inequality that existed between poor people and the clergy was not being properly addressed. This led him to become a radical preacher and a significant influence in the early years of the Reformation.
MORE Bad News For Pharma: Bisphosphonate Drugs For Osteoporosis WEAKEN Bones!
In more bad news for the pharma industry, the bisphosphonate class of drugs that are commonly used for the treatment of osteoporosis have been found to make bones weaker. In a study carried out by scientists at Imperial College in London, use of these medications was associated with the development of ‘microcracks’ in bone. Significantly, the bones of patients taking the drugs had a larger number of such cracks and less mechanical strength than those who weren’t.
Worldwide Studies Show High-Dose B Vitamins Reduce Schizophrenia Symptoms
In a damaging blow to the pharmaceutical industry’s poisonous stranglehold on the treatment of mental health disorders, a scientific review of worldwide studies has shown that add-on therapy with high-dose B vitamins can significantly reduce symptoms of schizophrenia more than standard antipsychotic drug treatments used alone. Published in Psychological Medicine, one of the world’s leading psychology journals, B-vitamin interventions utilizing higher dosages or combining several vitamins were consistently found to be effective in reducing psychiatric symptoms. Lower doses, in contrast, were ineffective.
U.S. Department Of Defense Revealed To Be Editing Wikipedia
In further evidence of the extent to which Wikipedia has become controlled by special interests, the Dr. Rath Health Foundation can reveal that over fifty IP addresses located within the U.S. Department of Defense Network are being used to edit articles on the online encyclopedia. A significant proportion of these articles relate to matters that are evidently of direct interest to the Pentagon. With this editing in some cases being clearly at odds with Wikipedia’s rules on conflict of interest, the ongoing involvement of an official government agency on the site raises serious questions regarding its independence and reliability.
INTERVIEW WITH ACTRESS CASEY B. DOLAN:
Visions For A World Of Health, Peace And Social Justice
Casey B. Dolan is an international award-winning South African actress, novelist, dancer, political satire columnist, peace activist, photographer, karate black belt, and mother of an 8-year-old son. A passionate believer in our Foundation’s goal of a world of health, peace and social justice, she lives in Hout Bay, a cozy fishing village near Cape Town.
Will Donald Trump Make Friends With Big Pharma Or Keep His Election Promise?
A few days prior to his inauguration as U.S. president, Donald Trump made headlines when he said that his country’s drug industry “has been disastrous.” Accusing American pharma companies of getting away with “murder,” he asserted that “people die because they can’t get the prescription drugs they need.” Almost immediately, drug industry stock prices fell and the internet was flooded with claims that Trump is supposedly now leading the fight against Big Pharma.
They Still Dance On The Graves Of The Auschwitz Survivors
Heavy rain can really set the mood when you visit somewhere. Hollywood has known this for years, and movie makers have used it to great effect ever since. But with nature writing the screenplay today, such weather is more than fitting at my location – the remains of one of the biggest crimes in humankind’s history. I am visiting Oświęcim, a small town in rural Poland. This place might be better known to you by the German name that the oppressors used for it during their brief, fatal time here in the late 1930s and early 1940s: Auschwitz.
Promoting Old Drugs For Dangerous New Uses: Study Claims Calcium Channel Blockers Stop Spread Of Cancer
A recent study claims that a class of prescription drugs widely used for the management of high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, and other heart conditions can stop the spread of cancer. Published in the Nature Communications journal by researchers at the University of Turku, Finland, the study asserts that calcium channel blockers can supposedly block breast and pancreatic cancer invasion. Given however that these drugs have been scientifically shown to obstruct the uptake of vitamin C – a key anti-cancer nutrient – into cells, not only is this a dangerous idea, the sole beneficiary from their use in cancer patients would be the trillion-dollar-a-year pharmaceutical business with disease.
Hospital Food And Nutrition Classes In Medical Schools: Can You Work Out What The Connection Is?
Some eye-opening research analyzing the dietary habits of National Health Service hospital staff in Scotland last year revealed that, in a typical working day, doctors and nurses manage to consume only two of the officially recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables. Carried out by the Royal Voluntary Service, a volunteer charity organization, the study additionally discovered that 29 percent of hospital staff eat just one portion of produce daily, with 41 percent consuming one or none. Aside from the matter that even eating five portions of fruit and vegetables a day still arguably gives insufficient levels of nutrients for optimum preventive health, the findings provide a good illustration of why bottom-up reform of our healthcare systems is essential.
LESSONS FROM HISTORY: Giordano Bruno – martyred for being years ahead of his scientific contemporaries
On the morning of Thursday 17th February, 1600, Giordano Bruno, an Italian philosopher, priest, and cosmologist, was burned to death at the Piazza di Fiori in Rome. An early proponent of the idea of an infinite and homogeneous universe, it took 289 years before he was officially honored with a monument at the site of his execution. As history shows, those who make important scientific discoveries and change our perception of the world are frequently years ahead of their contemporaries.
Progress in Cellular Health Science: An End-Of-Year Message from Dr. Matthias Rath
As we reach the end of 2016 my colleagues and I are looking back at over a quarter of a century fighting for preventive healthcare. Like anything else that is worth striving for, we know that important battles are not won overnight. So our work involves consistently carrying the banner for what is right, and teaching the world that the prevention of diseases is now possible.
LESSONS FROM HISTORY: Louis Pasteur – his research saved the lives of millions
Louis Pasteur (1822-95) was a French chemist who taught at Strasbourg, Lille, and Paris. He discovered that the real causes of epidemics were bacteria and other microorganisms. However, like many visionary ideas that are born ahead of their time, acceptance didn’t come easily.
Immunotherapy Drugs For Cancer: Just As Dangerous As Chemotherapy, And Even MORE Profitable For The Pharma Cartel
With public awareness growing rapidly regarding the inability of chemotherapy to cure cancer, the Pharma Cartel is spending vast sums of money hyping so-called immunotherapy drugs as its latest supposedly “groundbreaking” weapon against the disease. With estimates suggesting these drugs could potentially achieve sales of $35 billion a year, a deceptive global PR campaign is underway with the goal of convincing doctors and patients they are a safe “miracle” treatment. Just as with chemotherapy, however, their dangers are being deliberately downplayed.
Pressure Growing For War Criminal Tony Blair To Be Brought To Justice At The International Criminal Court
On 14 June, 2003, the Dr. Rath Health Foundation submitted a formal Complaint to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague. A 36-page document, the Complaint detailed genocide and other crimes against humanity committed in connection with the pharmaceutical business with disease and the Iraq War. As we stated at the time, the charges brought before the ICC concern crimes that are among the worst committed in human history. Despite their shocking gravity, however, George Bush and Tony Blair, the chief perpetrators named in the Complaint, have thus far managed to evade justice. In the case of Bush, given that the United States is not a party to the statute that established the ICC, a case against him currently seems unlikely. As for Blair, however, while he still retains formidable political influence, the campaign to send him to The Hague is growing and is far from over.
World AIDS Day Campaign 2016: Over 1 Million HIV/AIDS Deaths Per Year And STILL Avoiding The Truth About Vitamins
Although it sometimes seems hard to believe it, over a decade has now passed since we first announced that vitamins can reverse the course of AIDS. In 2005, reporting on the results of the world’s first community vitamin program, we held a conference in Johannesburg, South Africa, and described how a combination of vitamins and other micronutrients can safely control the symptoms of AIDS and improve patients’ quality of life. Had this scientific finding been implemented into global healthcare systems by now, millions of lives could have been saved. Instead, the officials behind the annual World AIDS Day campaign, held on 1st December each year, continue to avoid any mention of it.
Fake News And Pharma: Hiding The Truth About Health With Lies About Drugs
The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war, the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation. These contradictions are not accidental, nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy; they are deliberate exercises in DOUBLETHINK. For it is only by reconciling contradictions that power can be retained indefinitely.
– George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four
As the outcome of the recent U.S. presidential election reverberates around the world, the mass media is conducting a witch-hunt against so-called ‘fake news’ websites whose influence it claims affected the result. In manipulations reminiscent of the ‘Ministry of Truth’ in George Orwell’s classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, lists are being published of sites supposedly publishing fake stories; videos are lecturing us on how we can apparently spot them; and demands are being made for search engines and social media platforms to diminish their reach. Seemingly, after decades of producing dumbed-down fake news itself, the media is worried that its viewers and readers are beginning to turn away and think for themselves.
Successful Anti-Ageing – Be Younger Than Your Years
Jack LaLanne was an icon of fitness. He showed that age was no limit to physical performance. He became famous for swimming from Alcatraz to Fisherman’s Wharf while handcuffed and, at the same time, pulling a thousand-pound boat! He did this when he was 60. At age 70, he towed seventy boats carrying 70 people through Long Beach Harbor while handcuffed and shackled. He passed away at the grand age of 96 and performed his daily workout routine right up to the day before he died.
Jimmy Wales Admits Free Access To Health Knowledge Has Strict Limits On Wikipedia
Like others in the natural health community, our Foundation has long realized that Wikipedia functions as a vehicle to influence and control public opinion worldwide. As we have learned over the years, any positive scientific information on natural health approaches that gets posted on the online encyclopedia is quickly removed. If you’ve ever wondered where this dictatorial policy ultimately comes from, you need look no further than Wikipedia’s founder and self-styled “spiritual leader”, Jimmy Wales.
Bad News For The Pharma Cartel: Statin Profits Collapsing, The Cholesterol Bubble Has Burst
In a press release on November 1st, Pfizer, one of the world’s biggest pharma companies, announced it was scrapping its high-profile experimental cholesterol drug bococizumab. Citing studies showing adverse reactions and the chemical’s ineffectiveness, the drug maker concluded that the candidate injection product was “not likely to provide value to patients, physicians, or shareholders.” In plain English, this means it doesn’t work and that investors couldn’t make money from it. With global sales of statins and other so-called ‘lipid regulators’ having now fallen more than 32% over the past 5 years, the announcement provides further evidence that the pharma industry’s multibillion dollar ‘cholesterol bubble’ has burst.
Alchemy of Power: The Pharma Industry — Its History, Its Drugs, And How It Manipulates The World
During the Middle Ages, knowledge about the healing properties of plants mainly came from druids and witches. These people knew about nature and healing and could treat health problems such as inflammation or small wounds with simple mixtures of leaves and herbs. But this eventually made them a threat to the Church.
In Praise Of Garlic And Lemon Juice, And Recalling The 2009 Coup D’état In South Africa
A new study has found that a simple combination of garlic and lemon juice reduces cholesterol levels and improves blood pressure. Published in the International Journal of Preventive Medicine by researchers from the Isfahan University of Medical Sciences in Iran, its findings remind us that the growing interest in natural food-based therapies is a threat to the trillion dollar a year pharmaceutical business with disease. With the health-promoting properties of lemons and garlic having been publicly scorned by pro-pharma interests in the past, the publication of this clinical trial in a PubMed indexed journal effectively ridicules the ongoing disinformation campaign against natural health approaches and the character assassination of politicians and scientists promoting them.
European Consumer Lobby Group BEUC Exposed: Supported By Currency Speculator George Soros And The Brussels EU
In a recent report, European consumer lobby group BEUC calls on the Brussels EU to increase regulations on food supplements in Europe. Absurdly claiming that consumers are supposedly exposed to “potentially serious side effects” when using them, it demands the harmonization of European law to cover all types available. But while BEUC attempts to portray its analysis as trustworthy and independent, the fact is that, over the last financial years, the lobby group has been supported by billionaire currency speculator George Soros and the Brussels EU.
Starvation on a full stomach
Why it is time that kids learn a new way to eat…
The youngest patient ever diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2 was five years old and lived in Germany. His diet was based on white bread, fizzy drinks, cheeseburgers and chocolate bars. His parents, both severely obese, claimed that they couldn’t feed him anything else as he would refuse to eat it.
The doctors explained that the eating habits of the entire family had to change immediately, or else they were risking their lives. Their sugar intake was far too high, making their bodies acidic and causing multiple inflammations. The excess body weight had already severely damaged their joints.
The Global Healthcare Crisis Isn’t Due To Lack Of Funding, But To Ineffective Therapies
It is sometimes said that one definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result. I was reminded of this just recently upon reading a report about the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) being unable to provide a seven-day-a-week service under its current funding and staffing levels. The world’s fifth largest employer with over 1.7 million staff and an annual budget of £116.4 billion (US$148 billion), the NHS is said to be on the brink of collapse. With its junior doctors having resorted to strikes and legal action over new contracts, and costs set to rise to £133.1 billion (US$169 billion) over the next 5 years, I couldn’t help but conclude that the continued reliance on synthetic drug-based treatments and failure to consider alternative health approaches borders on insanity.
World Heart Day 2016: Promoting The Illusion That Deaths From Cardiovascular Diseases Can Be Prevented With Drugs
For the past 16 years, September 29 has been declared as World Heart Day. Initiated by the World Heart Federation (WHF), a non-governmental organization based in Geneva, Switzerland, the supposed aim is to spread awareness about the prevention of heart disease and stroke. Supported by a range of partners that include multibillion-dollar corporations from the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, along with members representing some of the world’s most influential organizations in the field of orthodox cardiology, the WHF portrays itself as leading the global fight against cardiovascular diseases. In reality, however, while it noted in 2010 that low vitamin and mineral levels increase the risk of cardiovascular problems, it continues to promote the illusion that these diseases can be prevented with drugs.
Microsoft Claims It Will ‘Solve’ Cancer Within 10 Years, But Omits To Mention Its Primary Cause
In a recent announcement, software giant Microsoft claims it will 'solve' cancer within 10 years by 'reprogramming' diseased cells back to a healthy state. In a post on the ‘Microsoft Stories’ site, writer Allison Linn describes how the company’s scientists, engineers, and programmers are trying to use algorithms and computers to figure out new treatments for the disease. But behind all the media hype, the reality is that Microsoft – like the drug industry – is apparently ignoring cancer’s primary cause.
Brussels EU President Jean-Claude Juncker’s ‘State Of The Union’ Address: Fiddling While Europe Burns
This week, Jean-Claude Juncker, the unelected president of the European Commission – the executive arm of the Brussels EU – stood up in the European Parliament to make his so-called State of the Union Address. Essentially portraying himself as Europe’s equivalent to US president Barack Obama, in whose country an official annual address or message has been given by every elected president for over 200 years, Juncker began by stating that the Brussels EU is facing an existential crisis.
Nothing Tastes As Good As Optimum Health Feels!
Preventive healthcare in a nutshell
42-year-old James sat in front of his computer and was editing a text for his boss when suddenly he couldn’t move his left arm. The pain was debilitating and he was unable to breathe. He started sweating and fell unconscious. When he woke up in hospital the doctors told him he had just survived a major heart attack. Tiffany, a 32-year-old nurse, went for a routine health check and received a shocking diagnosis of advanced leukemia.
Study Shows Chemotherapy Killing Many Cancer Patients Within 30 Days Of Starting Treatment
In yet another damning indictment of the dangers and ineffectiveness of cancer drugs, new research carried out in the UK has found that, in some hospitals, within 30 days of starting treatment, chemotherapy is killing up to 50 per cent of patients who receive it. With even the normally pro-pharma British media expressing shock and saying patients should be warned about the dangers of these toxic chemical treatments, the study provides further evidence that the credibility of chemotherapy as a cure for cancer is collapsing.
Nobel-Prize Winning Economist Says Brussels EU Heading Towards Cataclysmic Event And Currency Collapse

Interviewed by the Business Insider website following the recent launch of his latest book, Nobel-Prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz stated that Europe is heading towards a "cataclysmic event" that could lead not only to the collapse of the euro currency but also the end of the Brussels EU itself. A former Chief Economist at the World Bank, Stiglitz believes that one more political event similar to the United Kingdom's recent decision to leave the Brussels EU is now all it would take to trigger these outcomes.
Forced Medical Treatment and Military Experiments with Toxic Chemicals: A Century-Long Criminal History
The BBC recently published a report describing how dozens of people who were child patients at a British psychiatric hospital in the 1960s and 70s say they were experimented on with a “truth serum”. As the report describes, the experience has left the victims with disturbing memories and unanswered questions. For anyone assuming that criminal experiments conducted by or on behalf of pharmaceutical, chemical, or other interests ceased after those carried out by Nazi doctors and the German IG Farben Cartel during WWII, the evidence clearly shows this is not the case. In fact, during the past century, such experiments have been far more commonplace than most people realize.
Goldman Sachs Hires Former Brussels EU Commissioner José Manuel Barroso: A Deal Hatched At Bilderberg?
Multinational investment bank Goldman Sachs recently announced it had hired José Manuel Barroso, the former president of the Brussels EU Commission, as an advisor and nonexecutive chairman of its Goldman Sachs International arm. With Goldman Sachs accused by many people of helping set off the 2008 global financial crisis and then profiting from it by defrauding investors, Barroso’s mercenary acceptance of the appointment predictably attracted widespread outrage. Interestingly, however, despite the extensive media reporting, little attention has been paid to the fact that the road to Barroso’s new job may have begun at a meeting of the clandestine Bilderberg Group.
Drug-Induced Nutrient Depletion: One Of The Pharma Cartel’s Biggest Secrets
A new study has added to the mounting evidence that long-term use of antiepileptic drugs is a significant risk factor for vitamin D deficiency. Published in the Epilepsia journal the study found that despite living in the tropics where sunshine is plentiful, a high proportion of Malaysian children with epilepsy are at risk of vitamin D deficiency. Carried out by researchers at the University of Malaya, the study raises serious questions regarding the continued failure of our healthcare systems to address the issue of drug-induced nutrient depletion.
Positive Media Reports On Natural Health Therapies: Still The Exception, Not Yet The Rule
A recent article in the UK’s Daily Mail newspaper described how a doctor who had suffered from multiple sclerosis (MS) for 17 years finally beat the disease and became symptom-free after following a simple 7-step plan based on natural approaches. Centered around dietary and lifestyle changes, including the use of supplements, the article described the program as being “hailed by MS experts as a life-saving breakthrough for the disease.” It’s only a shame that articles like this are still relatively rare in the mainstream media.
Consequences of BREXIT: Demise of the ‘Brussels EU’ – Rise of a ‘Europe for the People, by the People’
On June 23, 2016, the people of Great Britain voted to leave the ‘Brussels EU’. This decision was a historic victory for democracy and the first step towards creating a better Europe. Moreover, despite how sections of the European and global media are already trying to portray it, this was not a victory for xenophobia or racism. It was a vote by a majority of concerned British citizens who refuse to allow the dictatorial construct in Brussels to determine all aspects of their lives. The result was a resounding victory of democracy over corporate dictatorship.
Dr. Rath Research Institute study: Cause for increased risk of heart attacks in patients taking Calcium Channel Blockers identified: Decreased collagen production impairs artery wall cells
A scientific study conducted at the Dr. Rath Research Institute shows that commonly used prescription medications classified as channel blockers (widely used for management of high blood pressure, arrhythmias, angina pectoris and other conditions) can lead to deprivation of vitamin C inside the cells. These findings published in the American Journal of Cardiovascular Disease (June 2016, Vol. 6, No. 2) now explain the reason behind increased risk of heart disease, breast cancer and gum problems reported in many clinical studies with this class of drugs. Most significantly, the study addresses how to overcome this deficiency with vitamin C therefore providing scientific advice for millions of doctors around the world.
New Studies Provide Damning Evidence Of Orthodox Medicine’s Inability To Treat Heart Failure
New studies presented at Heart Failure 2016 and the 3rd World Congress on Acute Heart Failure, which recently took place in Florence, Italy, provide damning evidence of the continued inability of orthodox medicine to prevent and treat this debilitating cardiovascular problem. With one in three heart failure patients still not having returned to work one year after being hospitalized for the first time, and one in four developing the condition within four years of suffering a first heart attack, it is clear that orthodox approaches are not addressing the primary cause of this disease.
The Skyrocketing Price of Cancer Drugs:
The Pharma Cartel’s Desperate Gamble
Whichever way you look at it the cost of cancer drugs is reaching dizzying heights. As the Washington Post pointed out this week, the $10,000-a-month cancer drug has now become the “new normal”. Today, because of this outrageous profiteering, the Pharma Cartel makes more money from cancer than any other health problem. But with awareness growing that non-patentable natural approaches to controlling the disease now exist, the skyrocketing price of patented cancer drugs is increasingly a desperate gamble.
Towards A World Without AIDS: Higher Zinc Levels May Decrease Inflammation In HIV-Positive People
A new study has found that zinc deficiency may contribute to chronic inflammation in people who are HIV-positive. Examining 311 HIV-positive people in Nepal’s Kathmandu Valley, the research involved 177 men and 134 women who were aged between 18 and 60 years old. Published in the Biological Trace Element Research journal, the study observed that the average concentration of serum C-reactive protein (CRP), a biomarker of inflammation, significantly decreased as serum zinc concentrations increased in men and women and in all age groups.
Australian Coroners Court Finds Pharma Drugs Involved In More Fatal Overdoses Than Heroin
An alarming new coroners court report has found that pharmaceuticals were involved in around 80 percent of overdose deaths in the Australian state of Victoria last year. Revealingly, while the deadliest illicit drug cited in the report was heroin, which contributed to a total of 168 deaths, pharma drugs played a role in almost double this number, at 330 fatalities. With urgent calls now being made for a real-time prescription monitoring system to be set up in Victoria, the implication that, nationally, thousands of Australian lives are being lost each year to pharmaceutical overdoses has been described as a national catastrophe.
State-Sponsored Child Abuse in Australia: Court Forces Chemotherapy on 6-Year-Old
In yet another example of state-sponsored child abuse, the parents of Oshin Kiszko, a six-year-old boy from Perth, Australia, who is fighting a brain tumor, have been forced by a court to enroll him in toxic chemotherapy treatment. With the young boy’s mother stating that the legal enforcing of the dangerous drugs on her son “almost feels like Nazi Germany”, and a family friend reported as saying of her that she had made “an informed decision that there are better options available elsewhere”, it is clear that awareness of the facts about this brutal form of treatment is rapidly reaching all corners of the globe.
The Global Healthcare System Is BROKEN: Only Natural Health Education Can Fix It!
Every year, on 7 April, the World Health Organization (WHO) sponsors what it calls ‘World Health Day’. Promoting it as a ‘global health awareness’ day, the supposed goal is to draw worldwide attention to subjects of major importance to global health. And yet, despite all the time and money the WHO spends on this campaign each year, it achieves no meaningful results. Today, a full 66 years after the campaign was first launched in 1950, deaths from heart disease and cancer continue in their millions and the drug industry’s profits continue to skyrocket.
The launch of our new Cellular Health Education course
To coincide with the World Cellular Health Week campaign, we are pleased to announce the launch of our new Cellular Health Education course. We believe that health information should be based on reliable scientific evidence and presented in a way that everyone can easily understand it irrespective of their age, education, or profession. Unfortunately, however, a lot of health information that we currently find on the internet or access through the media can be biased, incomplete, distorted, or simply false.
High Levels of Vitamin C May Protect Against Progression of Cataracts
A new study carried out by British researchers has shown that high levels of vitamin C may be protective against the progression of cataracts. Published in the Ophthalmology journal by scientists at King’s College, London, the study followed the development of cataracts in the eyes of 324 pairs of female twins over a period of 10 years. It found that participants with higher intakes of vitamin C were associated with a 33 percent reduction in the risk of cataract progression and had 'clearer' lenses than those who consumed lower levels.
New Study Finds Omega-3 Supplements Can Help Treat Major Depression
A new meta-analysis published in the Translational Psychiatry medical journal has found that omega-3 fatty acids can reduce symptoms of major depressive disorder. Examining 13 randomized placebo-controlled trials involving 1,233 participants suffering from the condition, the researchers noted that higher doses of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) were especially beneficial. With awareness growing of the important roles played by omega-3 fatty acids in the control and prevention of a wide range of diseases, the study provides further evidence that ensuring an optimum supply of these essential micronutrients can enhance and protect our health.
Democracy in Poland Threatened by the Brussels EU: Implications for the UK
On 9 March, in the Najwyższy Czas bi-weekly news magazine, the Dr. Rath Health Foundation published an analysis of the current political situation in Poland and Europe. Describing how democracy in Poland is being threatened by the dictatorial Brussels EU, the analysis was simultaneously published on social media and quickly reached people all around the country. Based on the reactions and comments it generated, the information contained in the analysis also has important implications for the people of the UK, who, on 23 June, are holding a referendum on whether their country should remain a member of the Brussels EU construct.
Former Bank of England Governor Confirms European Financial Crisis is Deliberate
In a little-reported statement given on March 1st at the influential London School of Economics in the UK, Lord Mervyn King, the former Governor of the Bank of England, confirmed that the financial crisis afflicting Europe since 2009 is essentially the result of a “deliberate” act of policy. Highly critical of the destructive economic strategies of the Brussels EU, he predicted that, in order to free its weakest member countries from the strangulating combination of austerity measures and high unemployment they are suffering from, the euro currency zone will have to be dismantled.
New scientific review supports role of vitamin K supplements in diabetes
A new scientific review has provided further support for the beneficial role of vitamin K supplements on insulin sensitivity, glucose metabolism, and the reduced risk of type 2 diabetes. Authored by scientists from the CSIR-North East Institute of Science and Technology in Jorhat, India, and published in the journal Nutrition, the authors hope their paper will increase understanding for the development of a new approach to help achieve better control of glycemia and improve the lives of diabetic patients.
UK National Health Service Officials On Pharma Cartel Payroll
An investigation has found that more than 130 officials employed in the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) have simultaneously been paid as consultants by pharmaceutical companies. The officials concerned, most of whom are believed to be managers or other senior administrators, are involved in assessing which drugs the NHS should give to patients. Suggesting the actual number who have been taking money from the pharma industry may even be higher than thus far reported, the Daily Telegraph, the British newspaper that uncovered the story, describes the problem as being “systemic” within the NHS.
Study Shows Babies Exposed To Paracetamol More Likely To Develop Asthma
A new study has provided further confirmation of a link between exposure to paracetamol and the risk of developing asthma in childhood. Published in the International Journal of Epidemiology, the analysis found that taking paracetamol during pregnancy, or administering it to babies during infancy, is associated with the child developing asthma a few years later. Providing clear evidence of the dangers of paracetamol, the researchers were also able to specifically eliminate the possibility that the asthma cases recorded were instead caused by the medical problem the drug was taken for.
The Perils of Polypharmacy: Taking More Pharma Drugs Increases Risk of Death
A new study published in the Journal of the American Geriatric Society describes how older people taking multiple pharmaceutical drugs face a significantly greater risk of frailty, disability and death. Providing further shocking evidence of the dangers of “polypharmacy”, the researchers found that each additional medication added to a patient’s regimen was associated with a 22% increased risk of going from a state of robust health to dying during the period of the study.
Our Official Video Messages for World Cancer Day 2016
The World Health Organization – the WHO – has proclaimed February 4 as world cancer day in order to promote worldwide awareness for one of the big unresolved problems of mankind – the epidemic of cancer. While every effort to create worldwide awareness about the need to end this epidemic should be applauded, there are serious doubts that the World Health Organization is able to help accomplish this goal. Why? Today, almost one third of the money financing the WHO’s operations comes from multinational pharmaceutical companies. As ‘return’ for this ‘investment’ into the WHO, the drug industry expects a huge ‘return on their investments’ from this world body. Thus, the WHO is no longer independent but its programs and activities – including ‘world cancer day’ – essentially turn into marketing campaigns for patented chemical drugs.
Elite Athletes Take Vitamin D Supplements
to Maximize Performance
A recent article published in the Wall Street Journal described how professional and college sports teams think they have found a cutting-edge advantage in one of the most basic nutrients: vitamin D. With scientific research having proven that an optimum supply of vitamin D is a crucial factor for our health, and with deficiency well-known to be widespread, the sporting world’s newfound advocacy of the “sunshine vitamin” follows the growing trend of health experts recommending a supplementary intake for everyone to support cellular metabolism.
Pharma Drug Trial in France Results in
Brain Damage and Death
A recent medical trial in France has left one person dead, three others with possibly irreversible brain damage, and a grim reminder of the dangers of drugs. The study, carried out by Biotrial, a pharmaceutical research firm, was using healthy volunteers to determine the maximum tolerability of an experimental painkiller manufactured by Bial, a Portuguese drug maker. In return for their taking part in the two-week test, the volunteers are said to have each been paid a fee of 1,900 euros (US $2,070). With two more men also said to have been hospitalized, and all six participants having taken the drug at the highest dosage used in the trial, the outcome has been described as the worst tragedy of its kind to have taken place in France.
Mass media ignores conflicts of interest in pro-pharma high blood pressure study
A recent study claims that many more people should be taking “intensive blood pressure-lowering” drugs to reduce their risk of heart attacks and strokes. Published in The Lancet medical journal in the form of a meta-analysis of 19 trials, the paper essentially asserts that all people deemed to be at risk should be given drug medication – even if their current blood pressure level is normal and irrespective of the danger of severe side-effects. Significantly, however, in its promotion of the study, the mass media failed to draw attention to the fact that half of the researchers who carried it out had connections to multinational drug companies or pro-pharmaceutical research interests.
Freedom of speech and the communication of truthful scientific information
In George Orwell’s classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, Winston Smith, the main character, defines freedom as being the right to say that two plus two makes four. “If that is granted,” he says, “all else follows.” In a notable parallel to Orwell’s observation regarding the nature of totalitarian regimes, government restrictions on our right to communicate the scientific facts about natural therapies impose senselessly strict limits on what we can and cannot say. But when, eventually, we reach the point that these constraints on our freedom of speech no longer exist, so far as our goal of Health for All is concerned all else will inevitably follow.
German Protestant Church promotes vitamin-rich nutrition in developing world: Recognition of Dr. Rath Foundation’s work in global fight against hunger and disease
All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. -- Arthur Schopenhauer.
In a welcome development, we were recently pleased to learn that the German Protestant Church has begun promoting vitamin-rich nutrition for the developing world. Previously better known for its advocacy of toxic antiretroviral (ARV) drugs for HIV and AIDS in poor countries, the church’s ‘Bread for the World’ campaign is calling for an end to undernourishment and malnutrition. Significantly, its public recognition of the important roles micronutrients can play in the prevention of diseases came only two months after the recent annual conference of the Dr. Rath Health Alliance in Koblenz, Germany. At that meeting we notably reported on the latest progress of the Movement of Life’s ‘End Heart Disease: Plant a Fruit Tree’ campaign, with particular reference to its relevance in the developing world, as well as the roles of vitamin C and other micronutrients in the prevention of cardiovascular disease.

Micronutrient deficiency: A global problem that requires a globally sustainable solution
An eye-opening report in The Times of India recently described how 75 percent of the Indian population are believed to be deficient in several key vitamins. Summarizing a study carried out across four different areas of India, the article explained how alarming levels of vitamin deficiency have shown up among the country’s population. Notably, therefore, in an unexpected parallel, an award-winning analysis of the American population has found that not only do large portions of people in the United States have too low an intake of micronutrients, they are not even obtaining sufficient amounts when using dietary supplements. As such, with the primary cause of today’s most common chronic diseases now known to be an inadequate supply to our bodies of essential micronutrients, taken together these two studies confirm that micronutrient deficiency is a global problem that requires a globally sustainable solution.
Scientific research increasingly confirming the health benefits of organic food
A new study conducted in the United States has shown that switching from conventionally grown fruits and vegetables to produce grown organically, even just for a few days, significantly reduces the levels of pesticides in children's bodies. Examining 40 children between 3 and 6 years of age, researchers from the Center for Environmental Research and Children's Health at UC Berkeley found that an organic diet quickly lowered their levels of several pesticides by between one-quarter and one-half. Consistent with other research reporting similar findings, the study is the latest in a long line of scientific investigations confirming the health benefits of organic food.
Don’t be distracted by the $750 pharma pill scandal: Drugs won’t solve the global healthcare crisis – at ANY price!
The reputation and credibility of the pharma industry sank to a new low this week with news that the price of Daraprim (Pyrimethamine), an anti-parasitic drug that is on the World Health Organization’s list of essential medicines, had been raised from $13.50 to $750 per tablet. Marketed since the 1950s, the drug was acquired last month by Turing Pharmaceuticals, a start-up company run by Martin Shkreli, a former hedge fund manager. Astonishingly, with even the global mass media seemingly aghast at this latest case of pharma greed, Shkreli shamelessly attempted to portray the 5000% price rise as “altruistic”.
Launch of our End Heart Disease – Plant a Fruit Tree campaign
Wednesday 15 July saw the official launch of our End Heart Disease: Plant a Fruit Tree campaign. A Movement of Life global project coordinated by the Dr. Rath Health Foundation, its aim is to educate people how heart disease is caused by a long term lack of vitamin C. The inspiration for the campaign is Dr. Matthias Rath’s scientific discovery about the development of heart disease, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States in 1990, and the inverse relationship between its incidence and our intake of vitamin C. Following the recent release, by scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute, of scientific proof that atherosclerosis is an early form of the vitamin C deficiency disease scurvy, it is clear that the elimination of heart disease as a cause of human mortality is now possible.
Don't listen to the media: Micronutrient supplementation can enhance immune function and suppress infection
Barely a week goes by these days without a media headline telling us that antibiotic resistant “superbugs” have become one of the world’s most pressing health concerns. Declaring that we stand on the threshold of the post-antibiotic era, such news stories try to frighten us into believing that, by the middle of this century, superbugs could be killing millions of people every year. Notably, however, whenever the question is raised as to what alternative approaches might be available for controlling infections, no mention whatsoever is made of the key roles played by essential micronutrients in the proper functioning of the immune system.
Heart disease confirmed as an early form of scurvy!
Scurvy (also known as the “Sailors’ Disease”) is a condition resulting from a complete bodily depletion of ascorbic acid (vitamin C). It is a fatal disease characterized by a slow dissolution of connective tissue throughout the body, including the walls of the blood vessels. This disease was quite common in earlier centuries, especially among sailors whose diets were deprived of vitamin C. During long voyages at sea many sailors died within months from tremendous blood loss. Today, fully developed scurvy is rare; however, subclinical scurvy is very common especially in the elderly, infants, children on special diets and people with poor dietary habits.
Our Study Proves That Heart Disease Is Linked To Vitamin C Deficiency
Heart attacks and strokes have consistently remained the leading causes of death. Atherosclerosis, the underlying cause of these diseases, results in 17 million deaths worldwide each year. Yet, high blood cholesterol levels, a fatty diet and obesity have been blamed as the causes of heart disease. However, cutting down dietary fat and the artificial reduction of blood cholesterol with cholesterol-reducing medicines have not been successful in addressing this issue. Atherosclerotic plaques occur primarily in the coronary arteries rather than in the entire 60,000-mile-long vascular system. The absence of plaque in the veins, and the fact that animals do not suffer from atherosclerosis while humans do, cannot be explained by conventional medicine and the cholesterol theory of heart disease.
End of heart disease now possible – New study proves atherosclerosis is early form of scurvy
Scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute in California have published a groundbreaking study in the American Journal of Cardiovascular Disease proving that heart disease is an early form of the vitamin C deficiency disease scurvy. Building on a discovery made by Dr. Matthias Rath in the early 1990s, this publication deals a major blow to the cholesterol theory of heart disease and the pharmaceutical industry’s associated $30 billion annual sales in patented cholesterol-lowering statin drugs.
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.
On October 19, 2014, a memorable event took place in Southern Italy in the historic town of Barletta. Addressing the audience and the people of the world, Dr. Matthias Rath gave a keynote speech in which he outlined the cornerstones of a future preventive health care system. Demanding that powerful corporate interests should be stopped from imposing the “business with disease” on the people of the world, he described unique and impressive strategies that will allow mankind to free itself from the current dictatorial system of health care.
