Video of the week / Growing evidence of the benefits of vitamin D / Media scare stories about supplements

Here is our latest selection of the key health and politics news stories from around the world. You can read the entire newsletter online on our website.

 

In this week's newsletter we focus on research suggesting that higher vitamin D doses are needed for older women to attain optimum bone health. Whilst current government recommended daily intakes (RDAs) around the world tend to fall within the range 200 IU to 600 IU, with the higher of these levels being for older people, this new study from the UK found that doses closer to 1,000 IU per day may be necessary to lessen bone loss in postmenopausal women.

Notably, therefore, this year has brought a flood of scientific evidence showing the effectiveness of vitamin D in controlling a wide range of diseases and health problems, including Parkinson's disease; lung cancer; risk of respiratory infections in children; Crohn's disease; tuberculosis (TB); cardiovascular health in diabetics; and many others.

Nevertheless, despite this evidence, the mass media continues to publish scare stories about the supposed dangers of taking supplements. The ultimate goal behind such stories is always the same: To protect the trillion-dollar-a-year pharmaceutical 'Business with Disease'. This week has been no exception, with absurd claims being made that vitamins are "a waste of money". A simple glance down this year's Natural Health Alternatives news stories on our website shows that such claims have no basis in reality. To the contrary, in fact, an impressive number of studies are being published showing the safety and effectiveness of micronutrient supplementation.

Significantly, therefore, in the United States more than two thirds of adults now use supplements and 97 percent of dieticians recommend them to their clients. So long as interest in natural health approaches and distrust in drug-orientated medicine continue to grow in parallel with one another, there can be little doubt that this picture will gradually be mirrored across the entire world.

Finally, as this is our last newsletter for 2013, we would like to thank you for subscribing to it and for sharing what you learn from it with others. On behalf of Dr. Rath, Dr. Niedzwiecki and our entire organization, we wish you all the very best of health and a peaceful 2014.

Video of the week / Omega-3 and Alzheimer's disease / Acid-suppressing drugs deplete vitamin B12

Here is our latest selection of the key health and politics news stories from around the world. You can read the entire newsletter online on our website.

 

In this week's newsletter, we focus on further evidence showing the power of omega-3 fatty acids. New research from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden shows that omega-3 fatty acids in supplements can cross the blood brain barrier in people with Alzheimer's disease, affecting known markers for both the disease itself and inflammation. Published in the Journal of Internal Medicine, the findings strengthen the evidence that omega-3 and other micronutrients are effective in fighting this distressing and debilitating condition. You can learn more about the effectiveness of omega-3 supplements in controlling not only neurological disease, but also cardiovascular disease, chronic inflammation and cancer by visiting the special omega-3 section on our Worldwide Studies and Research page and the Online Library on the World Health Alphabetization website.

We also report this week on a study which found that acid-suppressing drugs are associated with a deficiency of vitamin B12. According to the research, which was presented in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the world's most widely circulated medical journal, use for 2 or more years of proton pump inhibitors and histamine 2 receptor antagonists (two types of acid-inhibiting medications) was associated with a subsequent new diagnosis of vitamin B12 deficiency. Coming hot on the heels of the news that NSAID painkillers deplete levels of vitamin B6, it remains one of the pharmaceutical industry's biggest secrets that drugs deplete the body of vitamins, minerals and other essential micronutrients. For any health professionals who doubt this, we would recommend obtaining a book published in 1999 by pharmacist and clinical nutritionist Ross Pelton PhD. Citing 459 published studies on this subject, Pelton and his team identified around 150 specific classes of drugs that cause nutrient depletion.

Finally, if you've been following the story of the young Amish girl suffering from leukemia in Ohio, you'll be pleased to learn that her court-appointed guardian has at last stopped trying to force her to resume chemotherapy. With the girl having apparently left the U.S. some months ago with her family and recovered using natural remedies, we hope that she will now be left alone and allowed to get on with her life. Based upon their reactions in similar situations in the past, however, experience suggests it may perhaps be naive to assume that the stakeholders of the trillion-dollar-a-year pharmaceutical 'business with disease' will simply sit back and allow this to happen. But the world is watching, and, as the French writer Victor Hugo once said, nothing is as powerful as an idea whose time has come. A new global healthcare system based on scientific breakthroughs in the areas of vitamin research and cellular health WILL happen, it's simply up to us, working together, to share the truth and bring it about.

Video of the Week / Confirmation that Dr. Rath was right: Micronutrients reduce risk of HIV disease progression

Here is our latest selection of the key health and politics news stories from around the world. You can read the entire newsletter online on our website.

 

As we approach the end of 2013, we see many signs around us that the world is changing. We saw a particularly good example of such changes last week in the clinical trial from Botswana which found that long-term supplementation with multivitamins and selenium for HIV-infected patients reduced the risk of immune decline and illness. Published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the world's most widely circulated medical journal, this study confirmed that Dr. Rath was right: The control of the HIV/AIDS epidemic through vitamins and other micronutrients will inevitably terminate the multi-billion dollar business with patented AIDS drugs.

On Tuesday 10th December, Dr. Rath will give a live webinar presentation in which he will reflect on the current global situation and explain what needs to be done in order to ensure a better world emerges that replaces the tyranny of the multinational Oil and Drug Cartel. Full details of how you can watch this important presentation can be found on the special event page we have set up on Facebook.

As always, the key message underlying our work is that if you truly want to see a better world it is not enough to simply hope that others will do what is necessary in order to bring it about. Instead, you must use the knowledge you gain and take positive action towards supporting your rights and educating others. If enough of us do this and coordinate our actions, a better world will be ensured for us all.

Video of the Week / Confirmation that Dr. Rath was right: Micronutrients reduce risk of HIV disease progression

Here is our latest selection of the key health and politics news stories from around the world. You can read the entire newsletter online on our website.

 

In this week's newsletter, we report on a new clinical trial which found that long-term supplementation with multivitamins and selenium for HIV-infected patients in Botswana reduced the risk of immune decline and illness. Published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the world's most widely circulated medical journal, it is particularly notable that the patients in this study had not previously received toxic antiretroviral (ARV) drug therapy.

However, and contrary to what the Pharma Cartel and its stakeholders in medicine and the media would have you believe, this study is simply the latest in an increasingly long line of research showing that micronutrients are effective in the control of HIV and AIDS. So much so, in fact, that even Dr. Luc Montagnier – recipient of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Medicine for the discovery of HIV – has now spoken out for nutrition and micronutrients in the fight against HIV/AIDS. You can read summaries of many of these studies for yourself via the Worldwide Studies and Research page on our Foundation website and the Online Library on the World Health Alphabetization website.

What these growing numbers of studies confirm, of course, is that Dr. Rath has been right all along. Back in 2005, when we first announced that HIV and AIDS could be controlled naturally, we quickly became subject to widespread attacks. The reason for these attacks was obvious, of course: HIV and AIDS are multi-billion dollar markets for the Pharma Cartel. As such, lifesaving scientific information about natural non-patentable vitamin therapies represents a threat both to the Cartel's profits and the illusion that ARV drugs can cure AIDS.

But with even mainstream medical journals such as JAMA now publishing research on the use of vitamins to control HIV, and the relationship between HIV, AIDS and poor nutrition having been well established, it is clear that the end of the AIDS epidemic is now in sight. As always, therefore, with the media remaining typically silent on this issue, how soon this happens will be up to us.

Video of the Week / New benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids discovered / Drug-induced nutrient depletion

Here is our latest selection of the key health and politics news stories from around the world. You can read the entire newsletter online on our website.

 

In this week's newsletter, we examine some of the latest illustrations of the ongoing battle between safe, non-patentable natural therapies and the dangerous patented chemical drugs of the Pharma Cartel.

In the area of natural therapies we learn how dietary supplementation with two omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA, has been shown in an Australian study to improve attention, literacy, and behavior in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Similarly, we discover that men with prostate cancer who ate a low-fat diet and took fish oil supplements containing omega-3s were found to have lower levels of pro-inflammatory substances in their blood and a lower cell cycle progression score, a measure used to predict cancer recurrence, than men who ate a typical Western diet.

But as we know, natural health approaches that safely and effectively optimize cellular metabolism threaten the pharmaceutical "business with disease" because they target the root causes of today's most common health problems and they can't be patented. So to protect the strategic development of its near trillion-dollar-a-year investment business against this threat, the pharmaceutical industry has over an entire century now deliberately misled people about the dangers of its drugs.

A classic example of these dangers can be found in new research revealing that so-called COX-inhibitors, which include numerous nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), reduce levels of vitamin B6 in the body. Still unknown to millions of patients, one of the biggest secrets in the drug industry today is that pharmaceutical drugs deplete the body of vitamins, minerals and other essential micronutrients. A book published in 1999 by pharmacist and clinical nutritionist Ross Pelton PhD notably cited 459 published studies on this subject and identified around 150 classes of drugs that cause nutrient depletion.

Nevertheless, despite the efforts of the drug industry to deceive patients, information on the dangers of drugs and scepticism about their efficacy has gone mainstream. In the past few days, seemingly fearful of where this may lead, the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology issued new cholesterol guidelines that essentially declared, in one fell swoop, that millions of healthy Americans should immediately start taking statins for undefined health "benefits." But as the New York Times correctly analyzed: "This announcement is not a result of a sudden epidemic of heart disease, nor is it based on new data showing the benefits of lower cholesterol. Instead, it is a consequence of simply expanding the definition of who should take the drugs a decision that will benefit the pharmaceutical industry more than anyone else." We could hardly have put it better ourselves.

Perhaps unknown to the millions of Americans who are apparently now about to be advised by their doctors that they need to start taking statins, the background to these so-called 'guidelines' is that a few years ago the pharma industry attempted, but failed, to have statins declared as 'over-the-counter' drugs in the United States. Significantly, therefore, of the 15 panelists that authored the new guidelines, six reported having recent or current ties to drugmakers that already sell or are developing cholesterol medications.

Without any doubt, the pharmaceutical "business with disease" is the largest deception and fraud business in human history. Ultimately, it is only by replacing it with a new global healthcare system, based on scientific breakthroughs in the areas of vitamin research and cellular health, that cardiovascular disease, cancer, AIDS and other common diseases can become largely unknown to future generations. By sharing the information in this newsletter as widely as possible, you can play your part in bringing this about.
