Video of the week / Say NO to TAFTA / Brussels EU facilitating corporate plunder

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

In a new feature published on our Foundation website this week, we describe how a so-called Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) is being negotiated between the Obama Administration and unelected bureaucrats of the Brussels EU. Conducted in clandestine, the talks are taking place under heavy influence of the global pharmaceutical investment industry. Hidden behind innocuous-sounding terms such as "free trade" and "international harmonization", the primary goal of the agreement is to protect the trillion-dollar-per-year global business with patented chemical drugs.

The greatest obstacle to TAFTA is the "Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act" (DSHEA) – the law that has guaranteed free access to natural therapies for millions of Americans since 1994. Across the United States, every member of the natural health community, every health food store and every health-conscious citizen therefore needs to be alerted: TAFTA would inevitably destroy DSHEA by harmonizing US supplement regulations to draconian Brussels EU and Codex standards. Similarly, every citizen in Europe also needs to be alerted: TAFTA would flood Europe with GMOs, destroy environmental safeguards and threaten entire economies!

Notably therefore, a new report released by the Transnational Institute and the Corporate Europe Observatory graphically illustrates the dangers of so-called "free trade" by exposing a growing wave of corporate lawsuits against Europe's struggling economies which could lead to European taxpayers paying out millions of euros to speculative investors.

Coming at a time when debt-laden European countries are already struggling under austerity and recession, multinational corporations are using existing trade and investment agreements to claim more than 1.7 billion Euros in compensation from Greece, Spain and Cyprus for the impact of measures supposedly implemented by the Brussels EU to deal with the economic crisis.

Providing a stark warning of the dangers of "free trade" deals, these lawsuits demonstrate how it would be political madness to grant corporations further excessive rights under the even more far-reaching TAFTA pact. With similar deals already under negotiation in other areas of the planet, the need to defend our human rights and prevent this corporate plunder has clearly never been greater.

Video of the week / Pharmaceutical drugs and the elderly / Vitamin D, tryptophan and autism

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

A study recently published in the British Medical Journal proposes that doctors should stop prescribing statins and blood pressure drugs to the elderly as they have little effect. Suggesting that many older people 'see death as the next natural event', it argues that they don't want the burden of suffering side-effects from taking multiple prescription drugs.

On the face of it, of course, the fact that the British Medical Journal now recognizes the ineffectiveness of drugs in at least a subset of the population is certainly a positive development. Equally promising is its admittance that elderly people don't want to suffer the side-effects from taking these dangerous chemicals.

At the same time, however, upon reading this study one is simultaneously reminded of the sad fact that millions of elderly people all over the world are still living in ignorance about the new scientific possibilities for improving their health naturally and living longer, healthier lives.

Seen in this light, it can be seen that this study is simply a tragic reflection of the extent to which the multi-billion dollar patented drug business has utterly failed to improve human health. So ineffective are patented pharmaceuticals, and so debilitating are the side-effects they can cause, that some elderly people would seemingly rather die sooner than take them at all.

Making optimum health freely available to everybody is one of the key goals of the Movement of Life. As always, therefore, if you would be interested to assist us as a Movement of Life volunteer in your country, please contact us, we'd love to hear from you.

Video of the week / Media attacks on antioxidants / Multivitamins may decrease cataract risk

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

Evidence continues to mount that micronutrients and antioxidants have highly beneficial effects on human health. Thus far, for example, more than 90 research publications published in peer-reviewed scientific journals by the Dr. Rath Research Institute have documented the anti-cancer effects of a micronutrient mixture against a wide variety of cancers. Nevertheless, not a single one of these groundbreaking studies has as yet been given global attention by the mass media.

To the contrary, the media continues to attempt to undermine the credibility of natural therapies and warn the public against using them. For example, a study recently conducted in Sweden has gained wide publicity in the media through claiming that antioxidants may promote lung cancer. However, careful analysis of this study reveals that its conclusions were over-extrapolated from the experiments conducted and that they have only a limited relevance to human pathology. Moreover, the selection of forms and dosages of the compounds tested clearly shows that the study was not intended to investigate its relevance to micronutrient supplementation in human beings. As such, by attempting to present its claims as indisputable facts, it seems clear that the key goal of this study was to fuel antioxidant scare stories in the media and send out a warning against their use.

While studies such as the Cochrane meta-analysis from 2008 that similarly reported controversial results from the use of vitamins and antioxidants are widely promoted in the media, the fact is that vitamins are very safe substances and their benefits to our health are indisputable. The reason the media is not an ally in the campaign for vitamin freedom is that natural health approaches represent a serious threat to the financial basis of the pharmaceutical investment business.

Each week in our Foundation newsletters and in the news pages from the Dr. Rath Research Institute, we publish the truth not only about natural health approaches but also about the pharmaceutical 'business with disease'. Towards the goal of saving millions of lives worldwide, by sharing this free information as widely as possible you can play your part in ensuring that the media bias against natural therapies is overcome.

Video of the week / Brussels EU approves GM corn, demonstrates yet again it represents corporate interests

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

With its recent approval for the cultivation of genetically modified (GM) maize in Europe, the Brussels EU Council of Ministers demonstrated yet again that the construct represents corporate interests. The maize, produced by the American chemicals giants Du Pont and Dow, was approved despite a majority of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) having voted against it and despite the fact that surveys show an overwhelming majority of people across Europe are opposed to GM foods.

Commenting on the approval, Paul Anthony Taylor, Executive Director of our Foundation and coordinator of the Movement of Life, stated that it exposes the Brussels EU construct as a corporate-led dictatorship. "Trust in the Brussels EU is already at an all-time low, with less than one in three European citizens now expressing trust in it," he said. "By exposing the construct as a corporate-led dictatorship, the approval of this corn will simply accelerate the growing sense amongst European citizens that their lives are being held hostage to the financial interests of multi-billion dollar corporations."

With elections to the Brussels EU Parliament due to be held between 22 and 25 May this year, the approval of this corn can hardly have come at a worse time for those MEPs whose political parties will be expecting them to defend the decision. In the previous European elections, held in 2009, a record 57 percent of voters stayed away from the ballot box and an additional 4 percent cast deliberate votes against the construct. In all likelihood therefore, unless something changes soon, these numbers will surely only increase. Meantime, given that the final decision on the approval of this corn is now in the hands of the unelected Brussels EU Commission, if the will of the people is ignored on this issue it must surely be the final nail in the coffin of European democracy.

Video of the week / New scientific study on the use of vitamin C for cancer

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

In yet another sign that the world is changing, this week's newsletter focuses on a new scientific study on the use of intravenous vitamin C for cancer. Published in the Science Translational Medicine journal by researchers at the University of Kansas, the study summarizes the results of tests carried out on mice and on patients with advanced ovarian cancer. Confirming that vitamin C can kill cancer cells without harming healthy cells, the scientists state that intravenous vitamin C can be a safe, effective and low-cost treatment for cancer.

Just as importantly, whilst calling for "larger clinical trials," the researchers admit that because vitamins are natural substances and therefore cannot be patented, further clinical trials of intravenous vitamin C therapies will not be supported by drug companies. Nevertheless, they openly assert their belief that "the time has arrived for research agencies to vigorously support thoughtful and meticulous clinical trials with intravenous vitamin C."

With growing interest in the use of vitamin C amongst oncologists, the discoveries of Dr. Rath in the area of cancer are gradually being confirmed. Moreover, whilst even the most enlightened of orthodox oncologists are currently still focusing on a mono-nutrient approach, i.e. the use of vitamin C alone, it is essentially inevitable that this will ultimately be replaced by nutrient synergy approaches and the scientific understanding that micronutrients work in the body through forming synergy teams, the use of which allow for achieving greater biological effects than do single nutrients acting independently.

Towards this goal, recent work carried out at the Dr. Rath Research Institute has confirmed the effectiveness of a specific combination of micronutrients in inhibiting an enzyme, matrix metalloproteinase-9, which plays an important role in tumor invasion and metastasis. Published in the International Journal of Oncology, the work of Dr. Rath, Dr. Niedzwiecki and their research team points the way towards a brighter future in which cancer will become a manageable disease.

You can learn more about natural health approaches that have been shown to block all key mechanisms that make cancer a deadly disease in the groundbreaking book by Dr. Rath and Dr. Niedzwiecki, 'Victory Over Cancer'. With new cancer cases worldwide expected skyrocket from an estimated 14 million in 2012 to 22 million new cases a year within the next two decades, the need to bring an end to this avoidable tragedy has never been more urgent.

Video of the week / South African health minister accuses multinational drug companies of 'genocide'

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

In this week’s newsletter we focus on recent statements by South Africa's health minister, Aaron Motsoaledi, who, in the context of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in his country, has accused multi-national drug companies of orchestrating a "genocidal" plot to rig patent laws. Commenting on his choice of words, Motsoaledi insisted they were appropriate and reiterated that the efforts of drug companies to scupper patent reforms amount to “genocide”.

Interestingly, therefore, back in 2005, when our Foundation described the drug industry’s promotion of anti-retroviral (ARV) drugs for HIV/AIDS patients in South Africa as genocidal, our statements were criticized in the media on the grounds that they were supposedly “dangerous” and “unhelpful”. Today, however, in yet another sign that times are changing and that we were right all along, there seems to be an increasing recognition that the activities of the Drug Cartel on the African continent are indeed genocidal in nature.

Nevertheless, there remains a key difference between our accusation and that of the South African Health Minister.

Our accusation is that the Drug Cartel is deliberately ignoring the life-saving potential of vitamins and other essential micronutrients in the fight against HIV/AIDS. The reason why it is doing this is obvious, of course: HIV and AIDS represent multi-billion dollar-a-year markets. Lifesaving scientific information about natural non-patentable vitamin therapies therefore constitutes a serious threat both to the Cartel's profits and the illusion that ARV drugs can cure AIDS.

Aaron Motsoaledi, on the other hand, whilst correctly identifying the Drug Cartel’s actions as genocidal in nature, appears to have mistakenly convinced himself that the HIV/AIDS epidemic can be controlled only through the use of toxic pharmaceutical chemicals. Essentially, his demand is that ARVs should be made available more cheaply. But with even the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the world’s most widely circulated medical journal, now publishing research showing that vitamins reduce the risk of immune decline and illness in HIV-infected patients, it is clear that Motsoaledi is supporting an outdated paradigm that is no longer consistent with the latest scientific findings.   

You can access additional studies on the health benefits of micronutrients in fighting HIV/AIDS in the Worldwide Studies and Research section of our Foundation website and in the Online Library on our World Health Alphabetization campaign website. Towards the goal of bringing the Drug Cartel’s genocidal actions in Africa to an end and saving millions of lives, we encourage you to share this information as widely as possible.

Video of the week / Public trust in the 'Brussels EU' now at an all-time low

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

Two articles published in the UK's Daily Mail newspaper in late December prove that the information contained in our groundbreaking book, The Nazi Roots of the 'Brussels EU', is beginning to rewrite history.

Of these two articles it is particularly notable that one of them, published on December 28, focuses its attention on the key role played in WWII by the IG Farben Cartel. Describing how Farben was "born out of a merger between Bayer, BASF, Hoechst and Agfa", it points out that it was "the largest and most powerful company in Europe and the biggest chemical conglomerate in the world". Moreover, the article specifically confirms that without IG Farben, Nazi Germany could not have waged WWII. Just as importantly, it describes how Farben "designed, built and ran the company's concentration camp at Auschwitz" and notes that "its managers oversaw tens of thousands of slave labourers in conditions of extreme brutality, forced to work until they died or were despatched to the gas chambers to be killed with Zyklon B – a patent owned by IG Farben."

The other article, published on December 27, is equally significant as it confirms our own analysis, unequivocally documented in Chapter II of our book, that the 'race' for the nuclear bomb had essentially been won even before Hitler launched WWII.

Clearly, without the prior existence of our book neither of these newspaper articles would ever have been published. Until the publication of our book in April 2010, the media silence over these issues had been enforced for well over half of a century.

But with national newspapers in the Netherlands and Romania having gone public on our book in 2012, and the news this week that trust in the Brussels EU is now at an all-time low, there can be little doubt that we are witnessing the beginning of the end for this undemocratic, dictatorial construct.

In this situation, with the lies about WWII being exposed, and the people of the world increasingly understanding that the same corporate interests that propelled WWII are behind the world conquest plans of the Brussels EU, we encourage you to help spread this important information among your friends and family. A Europe and a World of Health, Peace and Social Justice are possible – but they will depend upon all of us playing our part in bringing them about.

Video of the week / Wealth of world's 85 richest people now equal to that of poorest 3.5 billion people

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

In a startling report released a few days ago to coincide with the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, Oxfam describes how the combined wealth of the world's 85 richest people is now equal to that of the poorest 3.5 billion people on the planet.

The report, entitled 'Working For The Few', provides a graphic illustration of how a vast and growing inequality amongst the world's people has been ruthlessly driven by wealthy elites who have essentially co-opted the political process to rig the rules of the global economic system in their favour. The inevitable consequences of this situation include the erosion of democracy, the pulling apart of social cohesion, and the vanishing of equal opportunities for all.

With the elites behind this economic and political global power-grab comprising some of the world's major investors in the fields of pharmaceuticals, chemicals, petrochemicals, oil, gas and the financial sector – to all intents and purposes, the component industries of the Oil and Drug Cartel – it is clear that, to avoid total societal breakdown, a major change of direction is needed.

On the Movement of Life website we show how scientifically-proven alternatives to the Oil and Drug Cartel's products could help bring an end to the systematic drainage of the world economy. In the area of health, for example, natural compounds such as vitamins and phytobiologicals are proving far superior to synthetic chemical drugs in almost all areas of medicine. Similarly, clean renewable forms of energy are now available that could replace fossil fuels.

As US Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis famously said, 'We may have democracy, or we may have wealth concentrated in the hands of the few, but we cannot have both.' Ultimately, it's up to us to decide which of these two alternatives prevails.

Video of the week / Asia takes action against the Drug Cartel / Vitamin E may help slow dementia

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

Welcome to our first newsletter of 2014! As we enter the New Year, it is already clear that the battle against the pharmaceutical 'business with disease' has become a truly global one. Far from concentrating its attention mainly on Western countries, as was once the case, the Drug Cartel is increasingly attempting to extend its strangulating influence across the entire planet. In recent years, for example, we have reported on how multinational drug companies have been focusing their attention on the Asian continent. Through a criminal combination of corruption and bribery, the Cartel wants to force its toxic drug merchandise on the Asian people and eliminate their reliance on natural and traditional forms of medicine.

Notably, therefore, at the end of December, Japan's health ministry announced that it plans to file a criminal complaint against the local arm of Swiss drug giant Novartis over alleged exaggerated advertising for a blood-pressure drug, Diovan. As this would be the first time a criminal complaint has been filed in Japan over exaggerated pharmaceutical advertising, and with Diovan's sales in Japan believed to have been worth around 100 billion yen (1 billion US dollars) since 2005, this is clearly a significant development.

Similarly, following the ongoing scandals involving Glaxo in China, authorities there are planning to introduce a blacklist of drug makers and medical device manufacturers found to have paid bribes. According to the country's National Health and Family Planning Commission, healthcare departments will compile lists of offending manufacturers, agents and individuals, which will be published online. Firms appearing on the list will be banned for two years from selling within the region where they were implicated.

Across the entire world, an extensive range of studies and lawsuits now clearly documents the criminal strategies via which pharmaceutical companies hide, ignore, or misrepresent evidence about drugs; distort the medical literature; and misrepresent products to prescribing physicians. For patients, the tragic consequences of these immoral practices can include serious adverse reactions and even death.

In our newsletters, our aim is to report the truth about the 'business with disease' and provide you with the very latest up-to-the-minute news about lifesaving natural health alternatives. As always, therefore, towards the goal of bringing about a new global healthcare system based on scientific breakthroughs in the areas of vitamin research and cellular health, we encourage you to share our newsletters and the information on our websites as widely as possible.

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

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.

Video of the Week / Impressive evidence of the benefits of vitamin C

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

This week's newsletter includes some impressive new evidence of the benefits of vitamin C. This time it's sufferers from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) – a health problem in which the lungs lose their inherent springiness, making it progressively harder to breathe – who have been shown to benefit from this important micronutrient. In a new study carried out in the United States, researchers found that COPD patients given intravenous infusions of vitamin C had significantly less muscle fatigue during exercise, better breathing, and a lower resting blood pressure and blood flow. As COPD can have a dramatic effect on a patient's ability to perform simple activities of daily life, severely limiting quality of life, these are clearly important findings.

Regular readers of our newsletter will by now be aware that Vitamin C has long had a reputation of being something of a miracle nutrient. As early as the 1940s, for example, Dr. Fred Klenner, an American medical researcher and doctor, was using it in his clinical practice with some remarkable results. In a paper published in The Journal of Applied Nutrition in 1971, he described a particularly dramatic story in which a male patient came to his practice one day complaining of severe chest pain and the inability to take a deep breath. The man told Klenner that he had been "stung" or "bitten" 10 minutes earlier.

Thinking he had probably been bitten by a Black Widow spider, Klenner immediately gave the man one gram of calcium gluconate intravenously, a standard treatment. This gave no relief. The man begged for help saying he was dying. Klenner quickly gave the man 12 grams of vitamin C intravenously. Even before the injection was completed, the man exclaimed, "Thank God." The poison had been neutralized that rapidly. Sent home to locate the "culprit," the man soon returned with an object that looked like a mouse. Klenner took it to Duke University where it was identified as a Puss Caterpillar, a particularly dangerous and venomous creature. Except for vitamin C the man would have died from shock and asphyxiation.

On the websites of our Foundation, our World Health Alphabetization initiative and our Cancer Free World campaign, you can access an enormous amount of lifesaving scientific information that documents the paramount importance of micronutrients and nutrition in maintaining optimum health. We encourage you to share this information with your friends, family and those that are dear to you. By doing so, not only will you be improving health and saving lives, you will be helping pave the way towards a new global healthcare system that puts people, not the profits of the 'business with disease', first.

Video of the Week / Multi-country study reveals Europeans don't get enough vitamins and minerals

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

In this week's newsletter we focus on a new study, conducted across eight different countries, which found that people living in Europe do not obtain sufficient amounts of vitamins and minerals. Analysing the intake of 17 essential micronutrients in the diets of people living in Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, the United Kingdom and Spain, the results show that European citizens – across all age ranges – do not consume sufficient iron, calcium, zinc, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, folic acid or vitamin D.

With independent studies having already demonstrated that the nutrient content of the European and North American food supply has fallen substantially over the past few decades, the findings of this study are perhaps hardly surprising. And yet, even as the study was published, unelected bureaucrats in the Brussels EU construct are quietly making plans to use the so-called Food Supplements Directive, a law passed in 2002, to set authoritarian restrictions on the doses of vitamins and minerals that European citizens can obtain from nutritional supplements. This is not being done in the interests of the people of Europe, of course, but at the behest of the dictatorial construct's corporate overlords in the Pharma Cartel.

To make matters worse, for the 19th year in row, the president of the European Court of Auditors, Vitor Caldeira, has publicly announced that the Brussels EU accounts cannot be given a clean bill of health. Presenting the Court's annual report on 5 November, he admitted that the error rate for the construct's budget spending had actually increased. Again, however, with previous accounts published by the Brussels EU having been massively open to fraud and shown funds spent on illegal projects, this is anything but surprising.

Ultimately, with even Pascal Lamy, who at the time was head of the World Trade Organization, having delivered a withering verdict on the construct earlier this year and openly accused it of having "lost credibility," it is clear that the Brussels EU dictatorship must be dismantled and replaced with a Europe for the People, by the People. Until this happens, the lives of millions of people suffering from cancer, heart disease and other common health conditions will remain hostage to the financial interests of the Pharma Cartel and avoidable deaths will continue to occur in genocidal proportions.

Towards the goal of saving lives and putting an end to preventable human suffering, we encourage you to use our newsletters as a means of educating people. Remember that the responsibility for creating a better world lies not solely with our elected leaders, nor with faceless unelected bureaucrats, but with each and every one of us living on planet Earth today.

Video of the Week / Augusto Odone, Father and Economist behind 'Lorenzo's Oil,' dies at 80

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

In this week’s newsletter we are sad to report the death of Augusto Odone, an Italian economist, whose tireless work led to the development of ‘Lorenzo’s Oil,’ a natural therapy that extended the life of his terminally ill son and inspired a Hollywood film. In remembering Augusto, we draw inspiration from the courageous way in which he and his wife, Michaela, stood up to the closed-minded dogma of the medical orthodoxy when their son, Lorenzo, was diagnosed at the age of six with the rare fatal illness adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD).

Upon receiving their son’s diagnosis, the Odones were advised that the boy would probably not live for more than another two years. Instead of blindly accepting this, they proceeded to do their own research and, with the help of some sympathetic scientific allies, successfully developed a natural treatment based upon fatty acids extracted from olive and rapeseed oils. Despite Lorenzo subsequently living to the age of thirty, thus dramatically outliving his doctors’ grim prognosis, the Odones were attacked by representatives of the scientific status quo who perceived them as threatening to their authority. Historically, of course, as our regular readers will be well aware, such attacks almost always occur whenever the credibility of the status quo is at stake.

By taking full responsibility for the health and life of their son, and bravely opposing the dogma of the status quo, Augusto Odone and his wife will be remembered as extraordinary examples of natural health freedom fighters. As our scientific work towards the creation of a new global healthcare system continues, their commitment and experiences in caring for their son stand as a lesson to us all.

Video of the week / Huge GMO News / Radioactivity level spikes 6,500 times at Fukushima well

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.

Video of the week, presented by Movement of Life

In this week’s newsletter, we report how the past week has not been a good one for the biotech industry. In the space of only a few days, citing the risk of imminent harm to the environment, a Mexican judge ruled that, effective immediately, no genetically engineered corn can be planted in the country. With other legislative moves towards restricting GMOs now progressing in Hawaii, and a public vote on the mandatory labelling of GMOs currently underway in Washington state, it is becoming clear that significant steps are being taken towards a GMO-free future on the American continent.

More worryingly, we also report this week on how radioactivity levels in a well near a storage tank at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan have risen immensely. Readers who have been following the Fukushima story closely will already be aware that the Japanese government, big business and the corporate media have desperately been trying to hide the grave threat from the doomed reactor, which is reportedly leaking 300 tons of water into the ground and ocean every day. Last week, however, officials of the Tokyo Electric Power Company apparently detected radioactivity levels 6,500 times higher than readings taken the previous day.

With between one hundred thousand and one million people already now being predicted to develop cancer over the next thirty years as a direct result of the Fukushima accident, the real tragedy about this disaster is that there are already alternatives available that could free the people of the world from their dependencies on the energy cartel. This is, of course, why the concept of ‘Free Energy for All’ is a key focus of the Movement of Life. As education is a vital factor in bringing about any positive change, we therefore urge you to support the Movement of Life and to share the knowledge you gain from it with your friends and family. By working together, we truly can bring about a better world.

Video of the week / US court says Ohio hospital can force chemotherapy on young girl

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.

Video of the week presented by movement of life

In recent years, millions of people all over the world have been waking up to the reality that the systems of healthcare they’d previously been depending on for their health are not what they seemed to be. Rather than focusing on the prevention and cure of diseases, the key industry that our healthcare systems depend on – the pharmaceutical industry – is primarily driven by the profits of its shareholders. If you doubt this, consider the fact that drug companies only make money when people are already sick or are deemed to be at risk of disease. Once you understand this, you soon realize that any healthcare approaches that truly eradicate diseases would ultimately destroy the pharmaceutical business model. As such, with safe and effective natural health approaches increasingly becoming the treatments of choice for millions of patients worldwide, the survival of the drug industry is now dependent on the elimination of such therapies by any means possible.

In fact, so desperate are the stakeholders of this pharmaceutical ‘business with disease’ to protect their near-trillion dollar a year sales in drugs, they will even force innocent children suffering from cancer to have toxic chemotherapy against the will of their parents. Notably, therefore, in this week’s newsletter, we report on how a hospital in Ohio recently went to court to force chemotherapy on a young Amish Girl. The subsequent court ruling to give custody of the girl to an attorney for the hospital came despite the fact that a previous judge had blocked the attempt to do so.

Fundamentally, in order to save itself from extinction, the Pharma Cartel’s goal is to ensure that nobody – not even an innocent child – is able to escape its dictatorial grasp. In light of this understanding, as the young Amish girl’s brave parents continue their fight to save her life using safe natural approaches to cancer instead of drugs, we are reminded yet again of the experiences of the parents of Dominik Feld in Germany ten years ago. Speaking after Dominik’s death at the hands of pharmaceutical medicine in 2004, his mother movingly described how, to the drug industry’s stakeholders in the medical profession, her son’s interests were clearly secondary to trying to show the world that Dr. Rath was wrong and that the results of his cancer research are false.

Our Foundation strongly believes that a Cancer Free World is already now possible. Clearly, however, it will take a strong and determined effort to make it a reality. As always, therefore, if you are willing to volunteer some of your time to work with us towards this goal and have ideas as to how you can help, we invite you to contact us.

Latest News Updates

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.

Viedeo of the week presented by movement of life

This week’s newsletter includes a report on new research showing that Omega-3 supplements are linked to a younger biological age in older people. In a randomized clinical trial, researchers in Australia found that the Omega-3 fatty acid DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is associated with a reduced shortening of telomeres, regions of repetitive DNA at the ends of chromosomes that protect them from deterioration. Functioning rather like the tips on the end of shoelaces that protect them from fraying, excessive shortening of telomeres is a known marker of accelerated ageing. Significantly, therefore, in recent years, numerous clinical studies have documented the paramount importance of Omega-3 supplements in maintaining optimum health. You can learn more about this important field of research by visiting the Worldwide Studies and Research section of our Foundation website.

In the area of geopolitics, we include an eye-opening story about a whistleblower from the World Bank, Karen Hudes, who reveals some startling information concerning the specific methods via which the global elite rule the world. A graduate of Yale Law School, Hudes is no ordinary whistleblower as she worked in the legal department of the World Bank for more than two decades. In fact, at the time she was fired by it for exposing corruption she was its Senior Counsel. This makes her testimony definitely worthy of reading.

Ultimately, of course, the information presented by Hudes further confirms the conclusion that many of us arrived at long ago: A Cartel of multinational corporations and investors essentially now controls the entire global economy. As we describe on the Movement of Life website, humanity is increasingly being threatened by global corporate interests that consider the human body as their market place and a source of unlimited profits. Today, therefore, at the beginning of the 21st Century, it is vital that the people of the world unite to protect their inalienable human rights – for, if they don’t, there can be little doubt that even our most fundamental rights will ultimately be lost. As always, therefore, towards helping bring about a much-needed positive change, we urge you to get involved with the Movement of Life and show your support by signing the petition.
