France’s Hollande Proposes Creation of Euro-Zone Government

NEWS

French President Francois Hollande said that the 19 countries using the euro need their own government complete with a budget and parliament to cooperate better and overcome the Greek crisis. “Circumstances are leading us to accelerate,” Hollande said in an opinion piece published by the Journal du Dimanche on Sunday. “What threatens us is not too much Europe, but a lack of it.”

COMMENT

Don’t be fooled: The “circumstances” of which French President Francois Hollande speaks here are the direct result of decisions and actions taken intentionally by the Brussels EU itself. The architects of the euro currency realized that a financial crisis would inevitably result from its introduction, but they reasoned that this would enable them to enact the necessary legislation to fulfil the Oil and Drug Cartel’s goal of a fully totalitarian Brussels EU under its control. Illustrating this plan, in 2001 the Financial Times newspaper in the UK quoted the then president of the European Commission, Romano Prodi, as follows:  “I am sure the euro will oblige us to introduce a new set of economic policy instruments. It is politically impossible to propose that now. But some day there will be a crisis and new instruments will be created.”

GMO imports: MEPs object to draft law allowing national bans, call for plan B

NEWS

A draft EU law that would enable any member state to restrict or prohibit the use of EU-approved GMO food or feed on its territory was strongly opposed by MEPs from all political groups in a debate on Wednesday. Members were concerned that the draft did not include an impact assessment, that member state measures might not be compatible with single market or WTO rules and that the proposal might prove unworkable.

COMMENT

Members of the so-called European Parliament are of course fully aware that the vast majority of their constituents are totally opposed to eating GM foods. As such, through objecting to this draft law that would allow national bans on GMOs, they have made clear that their true loyalty lies not with the voters who elected them but with the dictatorial Brussels EU construct and the multinational corporate interests it was essentially designed to represent.

Mediterranean Diet Can Help Men Fight Prostate Cancer

NEWS

Mediterranean diet can help New Zealand men fight prostate cancer, says a study by researchers from University of Auckland.

COMMENT

Research carried out at the Dr. Rath Research Institute has demonstrated how prostate cancer can respond to a specific combination of micronutrients including vitamin C, green tea extract, selenium and others. By taking advantage of micronutrient synergy, studies using this approach have repeatedly proven to be the most effective approach to health. Making possible the affecting of multiple biological targets at once, a synergistically chosen combination of micronutrients can simultaneously affect key mechanisms of cancer, improve the functions of many organs, and provide multiple other positive health benefits.

A Tale of Two Heart Failure Trials

NEWS

Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a serious disorder that may follow a heart attack, high blood pressure or occur without known cause. It may limit the quality and the quantity of life and many efforts have been made to control the symptoms and improve the outcomes. Late in 2014 two major medical studies were published focusing on improving the results for CHF, one with a new pharmaceutical agent and one with a nutritional supplement. It is worth reviewing the two studies and the likely impact they will have.

COMMENT

As this article illustrates, natural health approaches such as CoQ10 threaten the pharmaceutical ‘business with disease’ because they target the cellular cause of diseases and they can’t be patented. The survival of the trillion-dollar-a-year drug industry is therefore dependent on its eliminating the availability of these therapies and all information about them. But with natural health approaches having become the treatment of choice for millions of people, and evidence growing that daily use of supplements can reduce national healthcare costs, a new preventive healthcare system based on scientific breakthroughs in the areas of vitamin research and cellular health is already within sight. In short, how soon it comes about is now simply dependent upon how far and how fast we can all spread the truth.

Few U.S. adults meet fruit, vegetable intake guidelines

NEWS

Less than 15 percent of U.S. adults eat enough fruits daily to meet federal recommendations, but the numbers are even worse in some states, dipping as low as 7.5 percent in Tennessee, according to a new study.

COMMENT

The real tragedy of these statistics is that the people of the world have not been informed by their governments that heart disease is caused by a long term lack of vitamin C. Fruits and vegetables are good sources of vitamin C and other micronutrients, which means they can help prevent heart disease!

How the British Government subjected thousands of people to chemical and biological warfare trials during Cold War

NEWS

During the Cold War, the British Government used the general public as unwitting biological and chemical warfare guinea pigs on a much greater scale than previously thought, according to new historical research.

COMMENT

For anyone assuming that criminal experiments conducted by or on behalf of the pharmaceutical, chemical and warfare-based industries had ceased after those carried out by the IG Farben Cartel during WWII, the above story provides definitive proof that this is not in fact the case. Worse still, nor are these latest examples even isolated incidents. Between 1932 and 1972, for example, in the notorious “Tuskegee Experiment”, U.S. Public Health Service doctors secretly enticed around 400 poor black men into a study whose aim, unknown to the participants, was to observe the natural progression of untreated syphilis. For 40 years, the men were deliberately never told they had syphilis and were never treated for it. In an earlier and similarly appalling violation of medical ethics, U.S. government scientists infected hundreds of Guatemalans with syphilis in experiments conducted between 1946 and 1948. But the U.S. is far from being the only country to have engaged in such blatant violations of human rights. In the UK, records show that scientists from Porton Down sprayed toxic chemicals into the air around Bristol in the early 1960s to analyze how they dispersed, with passers-by and lunchtime shoppers knowingly being exposed and used as guinea pigs. Similarly, British soldiers recruited as volunteers to test "cold remedies" at Porton Down were instead given forms of the sarin nerve agent developed by the Nazis in World War II.

Doctors demand a 20% tax on sugary drinks to fight UK obesity epidemic

NEWS

Britain’s doctors are calling for the government to impose a 20% tax on sugar-sweetened drinks to pay for subsidies on fruit and vegetables in an effort to slow the obesity epidemic.

COMMENT

The heavy consumption of sugary drinks and fast foods in many countries today is a direct result of the artificial barriers that have deliberately been created between nutrition and health. Still unrealized by millions of people around the world who suffer from chronic diseases, the most effective medicines for our health can be grown in our gardens, on cultivated land within our communities and on the fields of our farms. Therefore, knowledge about the micronutrient content of plants has to become a key element in any education program towards a truly preventive health care system. Knowledge about the vitamin C content of citrus fruits, the polyphenol content of green tea or the micronutrients contained in sweet potatoes, cruciferous plants, grapes and many other plants, and their role in optimizing cellular metabolism, creates the decisive links between nutritional and Cellular Medicine. To learn more about natural preventive health approaches read Dr. Rath’s Barletta Declaration, which is now available in 12 languages including Arabic.

Why Eating More Vitamin C Can Help You Live Longer

NEWS

Vitamin C has long been touted for its health-boosting benefits, but new research has found it goes one step further — it can help you live longer.

COMMENT

This study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that people with the highest concentrations in their blood of vitamin C were the least likely to develop heart disease or die prematurely. Notably therefore, scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute in California recently 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. 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.

Experts Say World Health Organization Unable to Handle Ebola Outbreak

NEWS

Experts called on Tuesday for urgent, root-and-branch changes to the World Health Organization after an inadequate response to West Africa's vast and deadly Ebola outbreak.

COMMENT

Amidst the ongoing public debate over the Ebola outbreak, one scientific fact has gone largely unnoticed: the virus has been causing disease and death only in humans and subhuman primates. Other natural hosts of this dangerous virus are not known to develop the disease. According to the WHO these ‘protected’ hosts include antelopes, porcupines and fruit eating bats. Remarkably, even though these animals can carry the Ebola virus for many years, they remain unaffected by it. To learn why and understand how the Ebola epidemic presented a chance to embrace natural medicine, read this article.

Two-thirds of teen and young adult cancer patients facing end of life use aggressive measures

NEWS

More than two-thirds of adolescents and young adults dying of cancer utilized one or more aggressive interventions in the last month of life, according to a retrospective study from researchers at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center and Kaiser Permanente Southern California.

COMMENT

For around a century now, chronic diseases have been exploited by Pharma Cartel interests as markets for patented chemical drugs. In cancer an additional, particularly appalling, aspect of this exploitation deserves consideration: In the minds of patients, the diagnosis of 'cancer' has deliberately been promoted as a 'death verdict'.

This was not done by accident as it resulted in millions of cancer patients accepting literally any procedure – including highly toxic chemotherapy – in the desperate hope that it would save their lives. Today, however, Dr. Rath and Dr. Niedzwiecki's groundbreaking book, Victory Over Cancer, is inspiring people all over the world to learn about natural health approaches that have been scientifically shown to block all key mechanisms that make cancer a deadly disease.

By spreading awareness of the new Cellular Medicine approach to controlling cancer, and educating people regarding the facts about chemotherapy, millions of lives can be saved both safely and naturally.

Omega-3s show ‘positive effects’ for athletic endurance and muscle function

NEWS

Supplements of omega-3s may improve neuromuscular function and aspects of fatigue for athletes, says a new study from the University of Toronto.

COMMENT

Regular physical activity is a precondition for achieving and maintaining good health.

Moderate, regular exercise such as walking or bicycling is ideal and can be performed by everyone. Significantly therefore, studies show that micronutrients such as vitamin C, L-carnitine, CoQ10, L-arginine and others can have a variety of beneficial effects in people who exercise, including those who suffer from health problems.

Some people age three times faster than others, study finds

NEWS

Individuals age at such differing rates that some grow older three times faster than other people of the same age, a new study has found. US scientists who conducted the study on a group of 38-year-olds found that their biological ages ranged from 28 to 61.

COMMENT

Contrary to what the Pharma Cartel and its stakeholders in medicine and the media would have you believe, research and clinical studies have shown the health benefits of micronutrients in anti-aging.

Given this evidence, anyone who privately or publicly questions the health value of micronutrients in protecting our health does not serve our interests but rather those of the trillion-dollar-a-year 'business with disease'.

Ultimately, through preventing cardiovascular diseases and achieving victory over cancerit is possible for everyone to live longer, healthier lives.

Omega-3 supplements, antioxidants may help with preclinical Alzheimer's disease

NEWS

Here's more evidence that fish oil supplementation and antioxidants might be beneficial for at least some people facing Alzheimer's disease: A new report describes the findings of a very small study in which people with mild clinical impairment, such as those in the very early stages of the disease, saw clearance of the hallmark amyloid-beta protein and reduced inflammation in neurological tissues.

COMMENT

recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that supplements can halt the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Carried out over a period of two years by scientists at the University of Oxford in the UK, it followed 168 elderly people and showed that a combination of B vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids prevented brain shrinkage, a hallmark of the devastating condition.

Potentially a significant development in the control of Alzheimer’s disease, by employing a micronutrient synergy-type approach it provided further clinical evidence that the most effective supplementation can be achieved by utilizing carefully chosen combinations of nutrients acting in biological synergy.

Greece debt crisis: Tsipras says voters made 'brave choice'

NEWS

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has said Greeks made a "brave choice" in voting to reject the terms of an international bailout in Sunday's referendum. Thousands celebrated in the streets after hearing the final result was 61.3% "No", against 38.7% "Yes".

COMMENT

The outcome of this Greek referendum provides further proof that the Brussels EU is dying before our eyes. Moreover, try as the dictatorial construct might to hide the truth about its Nazi roots, global awareness of the facts continues to grow.

First published in 2010, our book “The Nazi Roots of the Brussels EU” is now available in 12 languages. With copies continuing to be distributed and downloaded throughout the world on a daily basis, and articles about the book having already been published in newspapers in the NetherlandsRomania and other countries, the shocking truth about the hidden origins of the Brussels EU is rapidly becoming common knowledge. Set against this background it is clear there can now be no escape for the construct.

One way or another change will come and the Brussels EU dictatorship will be replaced by a Europe for the People, by the People. It is no longer a matter of whether this will happen, but simply a matter of when.

‘An exciting finding’: Are the brain health benefits of B vitamins dependent on omega-3 levels?

NEWS

B vitamins may protect against age-related brain wasting, but only in people with high omega-3 levels, says a new study from the University of Oxford that extends our understanding of how nutrients work together.

COMMENT

Through finding that the ability of B vitamins to protect against age-related brain-wasting is dependent upon people having optimum levels of omega-3 fatty acids, this study essentially further validates the micronutrient synergy approach pioneered by Dr. Rath, Dr. Niedzwiecki and the researchers at the Dr. Rath Research Institute in California.

Over many years, the scientific research conducted at the Institute has demonstrated that the most effective results from micronutrient supplementation are achieved by applying specific and properly selected micronutrient combinations acting in biological synergy.

Jacques Delors awarded the title of "Honorary Citizen of Europe"

NEWS

The European Council has awarded Jacques Delors the title of "Honorary Citizen of Europe" at the occasion of its meeting on the 25th and 26th of June 2015. After Jean Monnet in 1976 (Luxembourg European Council) and Helmut Kohl in 1998 (Vienna European Council), Jacques Delors is the third major actor of the European construction to be distinguished by such a title.

COMMENT

In an astonishing act of hubris, while the euro was falling deeper into trouble with each passing minute, the Brussels EU dictators took time out at their summit meeting to award the currency's architect, Jacques Delors, the title of "Honorary Citizen of Europe."

In receiving this dubious award, however, it has to be said that Delors is in good company. Jean Monnet, a political wheeler-dealer who received the award in 1976, founded the little-known Action Committee for the United States of Europe in 1955 and played a key role in luring Great Britain into the Brussels EU. Former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, who received the award in 1998, was initially employed by BASF and between 1959 and 1969 was a full-time lobbyist for the pharmaceutical and chemical industry.

Kohl was disgraced in 1999 by revelations that his political party had received donations from an arms dealer and lobbyist accused of bribing officials.

50 everyday chemicals that can mix to raise cancer risk: Substances found in fried potatoes, handwash and suncream could lead to cancer if combined

NEWS

Fifty everyday chemicals, including one found in fried potatoes, could be combining to increase our risk of cancer, researchers say. Previous studies may have under-estimated the danger because they did not take into account the risk the chemicals pose together.

COMMENT

International research is increasingly confirming the validity of concerns we ourselves first raised years ago.

With this latest study essentially echoing the findings of an assessment carried out in Denmark earlier this year, we look forward to the day when the growing evidence base on the dangers of patented chemicals is finally acted upon by government health policy makers.

Dutch city of Utrecht to experiment with a universal, unconditional 'basic income'

NEWS

The Dutch city of Utrecht will start an experiment which hopes to determine whether society works effectively with universal, unconditional income introduced.

COMMENT

Currently, there are around 200 million people in the world who don’t have a job. Moreover, even amongst those that do have a job, at least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day. Significantly, therefore, the super-wealthy investors behind the Chemical, Petrochemical and Pharmaceutical Cartel see unemployment and low wages as necessary tools for maintaining profits.

But it doesn’t have to be like this as there are alternative approaches to economics and employment that would make a better, fairer world for everybody. In the area of employment, therefore, the goal of the Movement of Life is to put an end to unemployment and ensure that everyone has the right to live a purposeful, dignified and productive life.

US Supreme Court backs use of contentious execution drug

NEWS

The US Supreme Court has upheld the use of a contentious drug used in executions, saying it does not violate a ban on cruel and unusual punishment.

COMMENT

The pharmaceutical industry has a long history of producing patented chemicals for the purpose of putting people to death.

As proven by historical records from the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials, the Zyklon B pellets used to murder concentration camp inmates in the gas chambers at Auschwitz were produced by a subsidiary company of the infamous IG Farben Cartel, composed of Bayer, BASF, Hoechst and other drug and chemical manufacturers.

Today, with this US Supreme Court verdict, the ongoing pharmaceutical “business with death” is being given the backing of US law.

Drug firms and the media all need to manage people's expectations on cancer treatments, say Redx boss

NEWS

Scientists, drug companies and the media all have a responsibility to manage public expectations on “cures” for cancer, the boss of a Liverpool drug development firm says.

COMMENT

The reality is that curing cancer is not in the interests of the Pharma Cartel. Sales of oncology drugs are now its most profitable disease sector and are worth well over $74 billion a year.

While the drugs used in chemotherapy do kill cancer cells they also kill healthy cells too. That fact alone is bad enough, but it doesn’t stop there. Chemotherapy drugs have serious side-effects, with many of them causing new cancers and new diseases. This inevitably leads to the use of more drugs, which in turn cause still further side effects. It’s a vicious circle and a license to print money for the pharmaceutical industry.
