Video of the week

The victory over heart disease is now in sight!

This video shows footage from the historic press conference, given on July 2, 1992, in San Francisco, USA, in which Linus Pauling and Dr. Matthias Rath issued a "Call for an International Scientific Effort to Eradicate Heart Disease." Their simple but powerful message was that the scientific basis and means to eradicate heart disease - the number one cause of death in industrialized countries - were now available. In the press conference, Pauling states that Dr. Rath had made what he considered to be the most the most important discovery in heart disease - perhaps even in medicine itself - of the last quarter of the 20th century.

Say NO to the Lisbon Treaty!

We are living in one of the most critical times in the recent history of mankind.

The forces that have constructed and controlled the multi-trillion dollar markets in patented pharmaceuticals, chemicals and oil fear for their survival. They are being challenged by scientific progress and new technologies that affect every human life and which promise to liberate mankind from its dependency upon the interest groups behind these markets. Leading amongst these technologies are the areas of science-based natural health and renewable energies.

In this situation, the forces behind the status quo realise that they can no longer control society under normal democratic conditions. The only way they can continue to control the world is by establishing dictatorial control structures that guarantee them direct access to the political executive level.

Big Media: Not an Ally in the Campaign for Vitamin Freedom

From time to time, people write and ask us why the media doesn't give more publicity to the issues that we cover on our website. If all of the things on the Foundation's website are true, they reason, then wouldn't the media be reporting on them as well?

To illustrate why such thinking is naïve, and in response to the many requests we have received to speak out about the TV item on Codex that was broadcast in May 2008 on the Tros TV channel in the Netherlands, the following article by Paul Anthony Taylor, the Foundation's External Relations Director, explains why Big Media cannot be seen as an ally in the campaign for vitamin freedom.

Dear friends,

After fighting the battle against the pharmaceutical "business with disease" for nearly two decades, our Foundation is increasingly experiencing a growing wave of support. This is a sign that more and more people are seeing through the deceptive maze of these interests and are ready to take more responsibility for the creation of a new, effective, safe and affordable system of health care.

Genocide Then and Now

On Behalf of the Oil and Drug Cartel

It is a scientific fact that ARV drugs are some of the most toxic substances that can be given to the human body without killing it immediately. The extremely harmful side effects of these drugs include drug-induced immune deficiencies, the failure of various organs of the body and death. These side effects are listed in every patient information leaflet required by law to be attached to ARV drugs.

The promotion of such toxic substances to millions of people - under whatever pretext - will cause million-fold harms and death.

The promotion of ARV drugs in the developing world, particularly across the African continent, is a heinous plan for genocide. The two key motives for these unconscionable acts are:

  1. The insatiable greed of the pharmaceutical drug companies manufacturing these drugs.
  2. Population control in the developing world under the pretext of fighting diseases.

Swine Flu and Human Influenza - Questions and Answers

It's been three years since the bird flu scare, six years since the outbreak of SARS and now the alerts about a potential pandemic of swine flu tops the news sections in the US, Mexico and other countries, including many countries in Europe which have not yet been affected by a swine flu.

Many of us remember that the alarming news about bird flu and SARS came suddenly and quickly faded away, incidentally shortly after our research data showing that micronutrients can control key biochemical processes involved in the spread of these infectious agents were published in the major media outlets (see our public information in the New York Times, March 23, 2006 at http://www4.dr-rath-foundation.org/open_letters/open_letter_overview.htm). In the last years we have continued our research on various aspects of influenza virus, including cooperative studies conducted with virologists and researchers in other countries.

Movement of Life!

Speech by Dr. Rath, Kerkrade, the Netherlands, April 4, 2009.

This week we all witnessed at the G-20 conference in London, how fiercely the global battle between the status quo and the forces of change is being fought.

The status quo, represented by the multi-trillion dollar investment businesses of petrochemicals and pharmaceuticals - in short, the oil and drug cartel - is represented by its current political stakeholders France's Nicholas Sarkozy and Germany's Angela Merkel.

The forces of change at the G20 are being led by the president of the United States, Barack Obama, who has just been voted into office by the American people with a clear mandate to end the tyranny of oil and replace it with renewable forms of energy.

The G20 dispute is not primarily about mastering the economic crisis. The issue at stake for the cartel and its political stakeholders is much bigger. What is at stake is the very survival of its multi-trillion dollar investment business with oil.

Make Your Voice Heard: Reject The Lisbon Treaty!

The aim of the Lisbon Treaty is to deliver Europe once and for all into the hands of corporate interests. This "Treaty" will elevate the so-called EU Commission to the status of a de facto European Government - without ever having been democratically elected and with no fear of ever being voted out of office. And, unlike in a democracy, the EU Parliament has no powers to control this form of "government of commissioners".

If the Lisbon Treaty comes into force, the European Government will be 'appointed' for generations to come by global economic interests. And neither you, nor your children or grandchildren, nor their children or grandchildren will be able to do anything about it. Your only chance to act before it is too late is now!

Our campaign gives you the opportunity to participate in an online referendum against the Lisbon Treaty. The software program that you can download from the EU-Facts.Org website will enable you to email your clear No! to this undemocratic treaty to the political decision-makers of Europe.

2008: A Bad Year for the GM Multinationals

Looking back over the past 12 months, there can be very little doubt that, from the perspective of the large multinational producers of genetically modified (GM) seeds and food, 2008 was a very bad year indeed. Far from moving closer towards the GM industry's cherished dream of seeing foods grown from patented GM seeds becoming the norm on our dinner plates, it would seem that consumers are, if anything, becoming more suspicious than ever regarding these products. As such, with reports of the dangers of GM food becoming more common almost by the week, and even Prince Charles - the heir to the British throne - now openly stating that the widespread use of GM crops would be the biggest environmental disaster of all time, it is no longer too difficult to envisage a future where the consumption of naturally-grown organic foods, rather than GM foods, might become the norm.

So, as we head into 2009, let's take a look back at some of the key reasons why the GM food industry's senior executives and shareholders may be looking with increasing trepidation at the year ahead.
