Vitamin D Could Slow Diabetes-related Heart Complications

May 13, 2014

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis are evaluating whether vitamin D can slow the development of cardiovascular problems in African Americans with diabetes. They are more likely to die from cardiovascular disease than Caucasians with diabetes.
Read article at biosciencetechnology.com (USA)

Comment: Conventional medicine is confined to treating the symptoms of adult onset diabetes by lowering elevated blood levels of sugar. However, cardiovascular disease and other diabetic complications occur even in those patients with controlled blood sugar levels. Thus, lowering blood sugar levels is a necessary, but incomplete, treatment of diabetic disorders. Significantly, therefore, modern Cellular Medicine provides a breakthrough in our understanding of the causes, prevention and adjunct treatment of adult diabetes. The primary cause of adult onset diabetes is a long-term deficiency of certain vitamins and other essential nutrients in the millions of cells in the pancreas (the organ that produces insulin), the liver and the blood vessel walls, as well as other organs. To read about a clinical study in diabetes using the Cellular Medicine approach, visit the website of the Dr. Rath Research Institute.

Stopping Statins May Benefit Terminally Ill Patients

May 31, 2014

CHICAGO – People in the late stages of cancer and other terminal illnesses are not only unharmed by discontinuing statins for cholesterol management, they may benefit, according to a study presented Friday by researchers at Duke Medicine representing a national research network.
Read article at science20.com (USA)

Comment: With statins having previously been shown to raise the risk of developing cataracts, breast cancer, muscle pain and muscular injuries, diabetes, serious kidney problems, osteoarthritis of the knee, nerve damage, eye damage, fatigue and even calcification of the arteries, the findings of this study – which included the fact that patients who stopped taking them lived longer – are hardly surprising.

Memory Problems After Chemo Linked to Brain Changes

May 27, 2014

Read article on the Winnipeg Free Press website (Canada)

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 been deliberately 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.

How Global Agri-Business Destroys Farming
Forget the Propaganda from Big Agritech, the Key to Reducing Poverty and Ensuring Food Security Lies with Small Farmers

May 30, 2014

A new review carried out by the organization GRAIN reveals that small farms produce most of the world’s food. However, they are currently squeezed onto less than a quarter of the world’s farmland. The world is fast losing farms and farmers through the concentration of land into the hands of the rich and powerful. If we do nothing to reverse this trend, the world will lose its capacity to feed itself.

Most Wikipedia health articles contain errors

May 28, 2014

Ninety percent of health articles on Wikipedia contain errors, according to a new study published in the May issue of the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association.
Read article at medicalxpress.com

Comment: This study further confirms what our Foundation has known for some years now. However, whilst some people may innocently consider Wikipedia to be an independent source of information and assume that anyone can contribute to it, the reality is that almost nothing could be further from the truth. Under the cloaks of ‘democracy’, ‘free speech’ and ‘open society’, Wikipedia is deliberately being used as a vehicle for influencing and controlling public opinion worldwide. Any information you attempt to publish on it that threatens the interests of the Oil and Drug Cartel is being carefully monitored and swiftly removed by the ‘gatekeepers’ of these special interests within Wikipedia. The targeted topics include not only alternative energy but also advances in science-based natural health. To learn the hidden facts about Wikipedia that it doesn’t want you to know, visit the Wiki-Rath website.

European Food is not as safe as European Food Safety
Authority pretends

May 27, 2014

A few days ago, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has released the annual report on pesticides residues in food. While the Authority claims that 93% of tested food does not exceed the Maximum Residue Level (MRL), a finer analysis of the available shows that the EFSA’s communication is misleading. European consumers are still not protected against multiple residue exposure, the accepted MRL are too high and that pesticide residues in food are higher than 10 years ago!

N.S.A. Collecting Millions of Faces From Web Images

May 31, 2014

The National Security Agency is harvesting huge numbers of images of people from communications that it intercepts through its global surveillance operations for use in sophisticated facial recognition programs, according to top-secret documents.
Read article in the New York Times (USA)

Comment: The louder the political stakeholders of the Cartel in politics and the media bombard us with the words ‘democracy’ and ‘freedom’, the more aggressively they are already working behind the scenes on eliminating all democratic rights and on establishing a global corporate dictatorship to economically and politically enslave the people of the world for generations to come. They are lying to us that they need to read our emails, listen to our phone conversations and track every movement we make in order to fight terrorism. The only reason for this unlimited data collection and for the million-fold breach of privacy is because they are afraid of us, the people, waking up and replacing the economic tools by which they control us and terminating their dictatorial rule over us. Not surprisingly therefore, this global spying operation is being orchestrated by the governments of those few nations that together control two-thirds of the exports of chemicals, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals and other Cartel merchandise: the USA, Great Britain, France and Germany. This tells us just how afraid – and how weak – these interests really are.
