Video of the week / Effects of chemotherapy upon memory / Higher levels of vitamin D linked to cancer survival

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

Of all the many toxic side-effects suffered by cancer patients who undergo chemotherapy, one of the most distressing is the mental fog known as “chemo brain”. Involving problems with memory, concentration and attention span, brain damage resulting from chemotherapy has been shown to be measurable even 20 years after treatment.

Whilst it is still absurdly denied by some stakeholders of the pharmaceutical industry that chemo brain is caused by chemotherapy, a recent study we report on in this week’s edition of the newsletter confirms that a significant number of young cancer patients suffer memory problems as a result of this highly damaging treatment. Conducted by researchers in the UK, the study found that decreases in performance on a range of cognitive tests persist at least up to five years post-treatment.

Chemo brain and other side effects occur in cancer patients due to the fact that – unlike vitamin C, which has been scientifically proven to be selectively toxic to cancer cells – chemotherapy is unable to distinguish between malignant cells and healthy cells. As a result, it damages all cells in the body indiscriminately and has justifiably been compared to a “shotgun” approach. To make matters even worse chemotherapy particularly affects those healthy cells in the body that are multiplying rapidly, such as the white blood cells of the immune system. Thus, at a time when the body of a cancer patient has the greatest need for effective defences, the immune cells are being systematically destroyed by highly toxic procedures.

But as another study we report on this week shows, the future of medicine doesn’t have to be like this. Conducted at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland and published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, it showed that cancer patients with high levels of vitamin D in their blood live longer than those with low levels. Notably therefore, the researchers specifically concluded that in patients with stage I to stage III cancer vitamin D levels are associated with clinically important differences in survival outcome.

Contrary to what the pharmaceutical “business with disease” would have you believe, the fact is that natural health approaches already exist that have been shown to block not just some but ALL key mechanisms that make cancer a deadly disease. Based on the scientific discoveries of Dr. Rath and research conducted at the Dr. Rath Research Institute under the direction of Dr. Aleksandra Niedzwiecki, they pave the way towards turning cancer into a manageable disease. You can learn about these approaches in the groundbreaking book, Victory Over Cancer, written by Dr. Rath and Dr. Niedzwiecki, which we have made available to read online for free. Additional information regarding the natural control of cancer can be found on the Worldwide Studies and Research page on our Foundation website, in the online library on the World Health Alphabetization website, and on the scientific facts page on the Cancer Free World website.

In the Movement of Life, the key goals of our Free Health for All campaign are to end the world’s dependency on chemotherapy and other patented chemical drugs and, through the widespread implementation of natural health approaches, eradicate diseases. As always therefore, if you would like to get involved with the Movement of Life as one of our volunteer national coordinators in your country, please contact us, we’d love to hear from you.

Video of the week / Vitamin C boosts endothelial function and heart health / UK media confirms concentration camp inmates used as slave labor in WWII

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

Throughout history, momentous transformations in the areas of science or politics have almost always been accompanied by conflict and controversy. This is to be expected, of course, as whenever the vested interests of the orthodoxy are threatened by new ideas, the status quo will invariably take whatever countermeasures it considers necessary to maintain control. Over the years, our Foundation has reported on – and experienced firsthand – countless examples of such resistance. Nevertheless, two of the stories featured in this week’s newsletter suggest that the winds of change are beginning to blow in our direction.

In the first example an impressive new meta-analysis of 44 clinical trials reports that vitamin C supplements may boost the health of the endothelium, the thin layer of cells lining the blood vessels. Published in the journal Atherosclerosis, the researchers state they found a significant positive association between the dosage of vitamin C and improvement in endothelial function. Particularly notably, given Dr. Rath’s discovery that coronary heart disease is an early form of scurvy, the strongest effects were observed in people at higher risk of cardiovascular disease. As such, with additional studies published this year having similarly confirmed the role of vitamin C in reducing breast cancer mortality risk and providing a safe, effective and low-cost treatment for cancer, it is already certain that medicine in the twenty-first century will have to take advantage of the Cellular Medicine approach towards the prevention and control of today’s most common diseases. 

The other key publication we report on this week is an article in the UK’s Daily Mail newspaper. Following up on a piece it published at the end of last year which summarized the role of IG Farben in WWII, the Daily Mail has now gone further and essentially confirmed what we ourselves and survivors of Auschwitz have said all along, namely that Farben and other German companies profited in WWII by using concentration camp inmates as sources of slave labor.

In reading both of these Daily Mail articles we are reminded how our groundbreaking publication, in July 2007, of the historic records from the Nuremberg war crimes trial against Farben had been preceded by six decades of silence over its role in planning and financing WWII. Quite obviously, the fact that this information had lain buried in international archives for so long was no accident. But with the world’s media beginning to pick up on the roles of Farben and other corporate entities in the perpetration of WWII, the interest groups that had kept this critical knowledge hidden for six decades will increasingly have to answer many questions. Whatever answers or excuses they may offer, one thing is already certain: The truth is now out and these facts will eventually become common knowledge both to this and to all future generations.

Video of the week / More evidence on the dangers of blood pressure drugs and statins -- and a reminder that natural alternatives already exist

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 of the stories featured in this week’s newsletter, whilst clearly emphasizing the dangers of the pharmaceutical approach to healthcare, act as a timely reminder that safe and effective natural alternatives to synthetic chemical drugs already exist.

In the first of these stories we learn how thiazide diuretics, a commonly used blood pressure medication, may pose a risk to older adults. In an observational study undertaken by a team of researchers at UT Southwestern and the University of California in the United States, adults over 65 who had recently begun taking thiazide diuretics were found to be at greater risk of developing metabolic-related adverse events.

In a parallel development, a study conducted by researchers at the University of British Columbia in Canada found that cholesterol-lowering statins prescribed to patients with heart problems increase the risk of diabetes. Providing clear evidence of the dangers of statins, the risk was found to be more prominent in those patients taking higher dosages.

As serious as these dangers are, the fact is however that safe and effective natural alternatives to both blood pressure drugs and statins are already available.

For example, a clinical study conducted by the Dr. Rath Research Institute has demonstrated that high blood pressure can safely be controlled using a carefully designed cellular nutrient program. In doing so, it should be noted that the patients’ blood pressure was successfully normalized without causing it to drop too low. This is yet another advantage of nutrients over conventional medicine, where the use of blood pressure drugs can frequently lead to decreased blood circulation, dizziness and other health problems. As such, if you suffer from high blood pressure and would like to learn more about the natural options that are available for controlling it, we invite you to visit the Cellular Health and Studies Worldwide sections of our Foundation website.

Dr. Rath’s Cellular Medicine approach similarly provides a breakthrough in our understanding of the underlying causes of high cholesterol. Still unknown to millions of patients worldwide, the primary cause of coronary heart disease is a chronic deficiency of vitamins and other essential nutrients in millions of vascular wall cells. This leads to the instability of the vascular walls, lesions and cracks, atherosclerotic deposits and, eventually, heart attacks or strokes. Since the primary cause of cardiovascular disease is a deficiency of essential nutrients, the daily optimum intake of them – as opposed to the use of statins – is therefore the primary measure both for preventing atherosclerosis and repairing artery wall damage. To learn more about these exciting lifesaving possibilities, we recommend you visit the Cellular Health section of our Foundation website and read Dr. Rath’s classic book, “Why Animals Don’t Get Heart Attacks...But People Do!

With evidence regarding the safety and effectiveness of natural health alternatives now mounting on virtually a daily basis, the possibility of liberating ourselves from the grip of the pharmaceutical business with disease has never been greater. The sooner we are successful in achieving in reaching this goal, the better it will be for all mankind.

Video of new Dr. Rath lecture / NSA collecting millions of faces from web images / Sign the Call for a Movement of Life!

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 recent report in the New York Times describes how the United States’ National Security Agency (NSA) is harvesting huge numbers of images of people from communications it intercepts through its global surveillance operations. According to top-secret documents obtained from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, millions of images per day are being taken and used by the agency in sophisticated facial recognition programs.

Clearly, therefore, and as Dr. Rath points out in this week’s video-of-the-week, the louder the stakeholders of the Oil and Drug 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 our democratic rights and establishing a global corporate dictatorship to enslave us for generations to come. Far from being truthful about their goals, they are lying to us that in order to fight terrorism they need to read our emails, listen to our phone conversations and track every movement we make.

Ultimately, the only reason for this unlimited data collection is that the Cartel is afraid of us, the people, waking up and terminating its dictatorial rule over us.

In this respect it is highly significant that today’s global spying operation is being largely orchestrated by the governments of those few nations that between them control two-thirds of the exports of chemicals, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals and other Cartel merchandise; namely the USA, Great Britain, France and Germany.

In sharp contrast to this state of affairs, in our Movement of Life project we are working towards the creation of a better world in which the interests of the people are placed before those of multinational corporations and their stakeholders in politics and the media. If you share our belief in the crucial importance of the rights to health, life and natural food, please sign the Call for a Movement of Life and consider contacting us to get involved in the campaign as one of our volunteer national coordinators.

Video of the week / UK government agency attack on fruit juice / Brussels EU elections

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 how the ongoing attempts to deter people from increasing their micronutrient intake and improving their health naturally are plumbing new depths of absurdity. In a recent report published by an executive agency of the UK Department of Health, it is claimed that drinking more than a single glass of fruit juice a day is unsafe. Citing evidence that British families are consuming too much sugar, the report’s authors essentially claim that fruit juice causes tooth decay and other health problems and should therefore be limited to 150ml per person per day.

Building on previous efforts to discredit vitamins, the attempt in this report to portray even natural fruit juice as being dangerous to health provides us with a good reminder of just how desperate the stakeholders of the ‘business with disease’ are becoming in their ongoing quest to dissuade people from obtaining optimum levels of micronutrients. In this respect it is particularly notable that little mention was made in the report’s resulting media articles of the dangers of soft drinks such as colas, which frequently contain all manner of dangerous artificial sweeteners and additives.

With a recent study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition showing that micronutrient sufficiency is not being achieved through food for several essential vitamins and minerals in the US population, it is clear that strategies to improve micronutrient status – rather than reduce it through ill-advised attacks on healthful habits such as regular consumption of fruit juice – are urgently needed.

Finally, the past week has also been notable for the fact that almost 57% of the eligible electorate protested against the Brussels EU by deliberately abstaining in the European Parliament elections. With many of those who did vote choosing to support parties that oppose the Brussels EU, and even the pro-Cartel media describing the election’s outcome as “seismic”, it is clear that the beginning of the end of the dictatorial construct is now well underway. Whilst we cannot yet say for sure how long this process will take, or what will happen afterwards, one thing is already certain: Until such time as the undemocratic Brussels EU is dismantled, true natural health freedom will not be possible either in Europe itself or the rest of the world.

Video of the week / Law-breaking multinational corporations advising the Brussels EU Commission

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 new report by Martin Ehrenhauser, a member of the European Parliament, describes how corporations that have been found guilty of or are under investigation for serious ethical, financial or environmental misconduct are actively advising the executive body of Europe, the so-called European Commission. One particular name that stands out from this report is that of Shell, the world's biggest oil company. Despite having frequently been fined and taken to court for environmental and human rights abuses, corruption charges and tax avoidance, Shell has farcically been asked to advise the Commission on lowering emissions and tax avoidance.

As European citizens are becoming increasingly well aware however, the power to determine their government has effectively been transferred to corporate interests. Essentially serving as the unelected political stakeholders of multinational corporations, the executive level of the Brussels EU specifically crafts the laws of Europe on their behalf. In the area of health, for example, the key aim of the Brussels EU is to destroy the natural health sector so as to prevent non-patentable natural therapies from competing with the Drug Cartel’s multi-trillion dollar ‘Business with Disease’. As a result, highly dictatorial European legislation such as the “Food Supplements Directive” has been deliberately designed with this goal in mind.

In order for the people of Europe to be freed from the corporate dictatorship that is seeking ever more control over their lives, it is therefore necessary to create a much broader public awareness regarding the criminal history of the Oil and Drug Cartel.

Three quarters of a century ago, the largest industrial Cartel at that time – IG Farben, composed of Bayer, BASF, Hoechst and other corporate multinationals – financed the rise of another dictatorship, the Nazi regime in Germany. As we show in our groundbreaking book “The Nazi Roots of the ‘Brussels EU’”, the Cartel’s goal then was precisely the same as it is today: the conquest and control of Europe and the world by all means possible – political, economic and military. Moreover, the key architects of the Brussels EU construct were actually recruited from among the same technocrats who had previously designed the plans for a post-WWII Europe under the control of the Nazis. This fact, which, until the publication of our book, had been deliberately hidden from European citizens for over seventy years, explains why the undemocratic nature of the Brussels EU bears such a shocking resemblance to the intended postwar plans of the Nazis for a “Total European Economic Area.”

Ultimately, if the much-vaunted ‘European Idea’ is to survive in the 21st century, the ‘Brussels EU’ construct must be dismantled and replaced with a fully democratic structure – A Europe for the People, by the People. Until then, no politician, political party or government anywhere in the world that publicly supports the Brussels EU is worthy of support at the ballot box.

Video of the week / Brussels EU ban on claims that water prevents dehydration / Vitamin D may prevent prostate 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 this week’s newsletter we report on how the ‘Court of Justice’ of the Brussels EU has thrown out a legal challenge to the construct’s dictatorial Nutrition and Health Claims Regulation. The case followed a common sense health claim for water that was submitted for approval to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in 2011 by two German professors: “Regular consumption of significant amounts of water can reduce the risk of development of dehydration and of concomitant decrease of performance.” In an utterly absurd ruling, EFSA rejected the professors’ submission on the grounds that it did not comply with the requirements of the Regulation.

As such, with the Brussels EU enforcing European health claims in such a draconian fashion that even claims that drinking water prevents dehydration are considered illegal, nobody should now be in any doubt over the fact that the construct is not representing the interests of the people.

Further evidence of the totalitarian nature of the Brussels EU came in a recent interview with the President of its so-called “European Council”, Herman Van Rompuy, who stated that the “whole European territory apart from Russia will in the long term be in some way involved with the EU”. Significantly, he added that “whether there is support for this among the public, I do not know. But we do it anyway.”

Clearly, Van Rompuy’s highly revealing statement here tells us everything we need to know about the undemocratic and expansionist nature of the construct he represents. With neither the 28 ‘Commissars’ who make up the European Commission – the executive level of the Brussels EU – nor even Van Rompuy himself having been elected by the people, it is an illusion to think they would ever listen to European voters or act in their interests.

As regular readers of our newsletters will know, our Foundation has long argued that the entire Brussels EU structure needs to be dismantled and, ultimately, replaced with a Europe for the People, by the People. Meantime, with elections to the puppet Brussels EU parliament taking place between 22-25 May and the anti-EU vote already predicted to rise above 30 percent, the response of the European people to the dictatorship that is increasingly being forced upon them will soon become clear.

Video of the week / Rising food prices / Multinational corporations acting as unelected superpowers

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 report in our newsletter this week, economic austerity and rising food prices have hit healthy eating habits hard in the UK. In a survey conducted by the British Heart Foundation, one in four Brits questioned said they hadn't bought any fresh fruit or vegetables in the previous week. Moreover, whilst two-thirds of respondents wished they could eat more healthily, just under half said they couldn't because it was too expensive.

This shocking reality – that millions of people in a wealthy country like the UK cannot afford to buy fruit and vegetables – provides a sobering reminder of why the Movement of Life project's Free Food for All campaign is of such vital importance. Today, as you read this newsletter, almost one billion people don't have enough food to eat and the people of the world are watching with growing alarm as global biotech corporations try to force foods grown from GMO seeds onto their dinner plates. Why do these companies prefer GMO seeds to natural, organic seeds? Simply because they can be patented. Just as with patented pharmaceutical drugs, the patenting of seeds allows the companies who own them to control markets and make higher profits. In the area of food, therefore, the goal of the Movement of Life is to end the 'GMO madness' and bring an end to malnutrition and world hunger.

In a not entirely unrelated story this week we learn that General Mills, a multi-billion dollar food corporation, has been forced into an embarrassing climb-down after posting new legal terms on its website that seemed to prevent consumers from suing it if they had previously 'Liked' the company on Facebook. Predictably, of course, and as General Mills has now learned to its cost, in today's world the inevitable results of corporate strong-arm tactics such as these are a public backlash on social media and a loss of trust amongst customers.

Whilst the internet and social media clearly have the potential to change the world for the better, and, indeed, are arguably already beginning to do so, it is vital that the interests of people, rather than those of multinational corporations, should always come first. But with Google having cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman is now a White House advisor, and the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) having collaborated with British Intelligence to intercept the webcam footage of over 1.8 million Yahoo users, we must all remain forever vigilant against multinational corporations and spy agencies acting as unelected superpowers.

Video of the week / Increased vitamin C intake reduces breast cancer mortality 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

A new meta-analysis, published in the European Journal of Cancer, confirms that an increased intake of vitamin C reduces breast cancer mortality risk. To conduct their analysis, the researchers looked at ten studies examining dietary vitamin C intake and supplement use in a total of 17,696 cases of breast cancer. Whilst they found that an increased dietary vitamin C intake was associated with a reduced risk of total mortality and breast cancer-specific mortality, their results clearly show that a post-diagnostic daily regimen of vitamin C supplementation may confer additional survival benefits.

As regular readers of our newsletters will know however, the most effective approaches to controlling cancer naturally are not based on the use of single nutrients alone but on carefully chosen and balanced groups of nutrients acting in synergy. Significantly therefore, a new study from the Dr. Rath Research Institute demonstrates that dietary intake of a specific combination of micronutrients acting in synergy can significantly suppress the growth and metastasis of breast cancer. With breast cancer now being the most prevalent cancer in women worldwide and the leading cause of cancer deaths in women, the publication of this important study confirms that the Cellular Medicine approach to the control of cancer has real therapeutic potential and can ultimately pave the way towards victory over cancer and a cancer-free world.

Dr Rath's discoveries and the groundbreaking research work being carried out at the Dr. Rath Research Institute set up new therapeutic directions and present a real chance to control cancer, all of which have not been possible with conventional medicine approaches to this disease. If you would like to volunteer some of your time to work with us in spreading information about the natural control of cancer and other health problems in your country, please contact us, we'd love to hear from you.

Video of the week / Review finds Roche's Tamiflu drug a 'waste of money' / Good news from the Philippines

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 review of trial data on Roche's multi-billion dollar Tamiflu drug made headlines last week when it concluded that treating patients with it was a waste of money. Essentially confirming what our Foundation had said all along, the researchers – who fought for years to get full data on the drug – specifically stated that governments who stockpile it are wasting billions of dollars and that there is no credible evidence it could prevent an influenza pandemic.

Over the years, studies with Tamiflu have reported myriad side-effects including nausea, vomiting, headaches, diarrhea and abdominal pain. Other research has revealed it can cause dangerous psychiatric problems – such as delirium, delusions and hallucinations – and even death. Notably therefore, the official World Health Organization guidance on Tamiflu, issued in 2004, which urged governments to stockpile the drug, was authored by scientists who had previously received payment from its manufacturer, Roche.

In sharp contrast to the ineffectiveness of Tamiflu and other drugs in controlling influenza, research published by Dr. Rath and Dr. Aleksandra Niedzwiecki has demonstrated that a unique micronutrient mixture has high antiviral activity – even at prolonged periods after infection. Natural micronutrient approaches based on the nutrient synergy concept are safer than drugs in controlling viral infections and work by acting on several different cellular mechanisms at the same time – something that is not achievable with pharmaceuticals. You can learn more about Dr. Rath's breakthrough discoveries in infectious diseases by visiting the website of the Dr. Rath Research Institute.

On a separate note, we received some good news from the Philippines this week that we would like to share with you.

As you will probably recall, Typhoon Haiyan, a powerful tropical cyclone, devastated the Philippines in November 2013. The country's deadliest typhoon on record, over 6,000 Filipino people lost their lives, over 28,000 were injured and over 1 million homes were partially or completely destroyed. Such was the destruction that, even as of January 2014, bodies were still being found.

As a health organization we regarded it as our duty to do what we could to help. Immediately following our learning of the typhoon we therefore made a donation that was handled by Dr. Wong Ang Peng, our contact in the region, who ensured that the money was channeled directly towards people who needed help.

After discussion it was decided that our donation would be used to buy new boats for Filipino fishermen who had lost their livelihoods. As the wonderful photos on our website now show, the fishermen chose to name their shiny new boats in honor of our donation.

To paraphrase an old saying: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Give a man a boat and you feed him for a lifetime.

As the work towards repairing the immense damage to the Philippines continues, we send our very best wishes to the fishermen, their families and to all of those affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

Video of the week / Russia will not import GMO products / UK 'aid' financing corporate scramble for Africa

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 of the stories in this week's newsletter provide a particularly good illustration of the ongoing battle between the forces for change and the agricultural interests behind the Oil and Drug Cartel.

In the first of these stories, Dmitry Medvedev, the Prime Minister of Russia, announces that his country will not import GMO food products. Speaking in Volgograd at a meeting of deputies from rural settlements, he described how the Russian nation has enough space and resources to produce organic food and stated that he has ordered widespread monitoring of the country's agricultural sector.

In sharp contrast to this development, in another story we learn how 600 million pounds of UK aid money is being used to help companies like Unilever and Monsanto take over land and agriculture in Africa. Far from bringing an end to hunger and malnutrition on the African continent, the privatizing of seeds, the expansion of the use of agrochemicals and the prioritizing of exports over the needs of local people threaten disaster for both the African people and their farmers.

With a recent meeting of the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) having concluded that vitamin and mineral deficiencies and health problems like growth stunting in children are now widespread among the countries of Europe and central Asia, there is clearly an urgent need for alternative, more effective approaches to feeding the world's people.

'Guerilla gardener' Ron Finley points the way forward in this week's video-of-the-week when he says that growing your own food is like printing your own money. Simply put, we do not have to allow multinational corporations to control either our food supplies, our health or our lives. Instead, by studying the videos in the Free Food for All section of the Movement of Life website you can take positive steps towards freeing yourself from the corporate control of your kitchen. Remember that the power to change things is in your own hands!

Video of the week / Bad news for the Drug Cartel / Vitamin D levels predict progression of MS

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 significant development, a new study proposes that around 5.8 million American adults should no longer be prescribed drugs to treat high blood pressure. Prior to this, in February, the Eighth Joint National Committee had released guidelines that relaxed blood pressure goals in adults aged 60 and over from 140/90 to 150/90. These guidelines also eased blood pressure targets for adults with diabetes and kidney disease.

Whichever way one looks at it, this is clearly bad news for the Drug Cartel. With its multi-billion dollar sales in patented blood pressure drugs at risk of contracting as a direct result of these recommendations, and safe natural alternatives for eradicating high blood pressure already available, millions more people can potentially now be freed from their fatal dependency on the pharmaceutical ‘business with disease’.

But the bad news for the Drug Cartel doesn’t stop there. In yet another significant development, a research letter published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) last month confirmed that many Americans now believe the US Food and Drug Administration is deliberately preventing the public from getting natural cures for cancer and other diseases because of pressure from drug companies. Following the 2013 survey which confirmed that most people now feel the pharmaceutical industry sees cancer as a money-making opportunity rather than as a disease to be eradicated, the publication by JAMA – the world’s most widely circulated medical journal – of this research letter suggests that our Foundation’s long-held analysis of the pharmaceutical ‘business with disease’ is gradually becoming mainstream.

As millions of people worldwide are now coming to understand, it is not in the financial interests of the drug industry to prevent common diseases. To the contrary, in fact, the maintenance and expansion of diseases is a precondition for its financial growth. The huge profits of this industry are based on the patenting of new drugs, which essentially allow drug manufacturers to arbitrarily define their profits.

Vitamins and other effective micronutrient therapies that optimize cellular metabolism threaten the pharmaceutical “business with disease” because they target the cellular cause of today’s most common diseases – and these natural substances cannot be patented. Ultimately therefore, the survival of the pharmaceutical industry is dependent on the elimination by any means of effective natural health therapies – and information about them.

In total contrast to the “business with disease” our Foundation is committed to overcoming the “information block” about natural therapies, improving health and saving lives. By subscribing to this newsletter, and sharing the information it contains, you can contribute to this process towards our goal of making ‘Health for All’ a reality.

Video of the week / Bad week for the biotech industry / More good news about fish oils

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

Looking down the stories in this week's issue of the newsletter it is immediately apparent that this has not been a good week for the biotech industry.

With France's agricultural ministry banning the sale, use and cultivation of Monsanto's genetically modified (GM) maize MON 810; a historic court ruling stopping the cultivation of Bayer's GM maize in Brazil; the Campeche region of Mexico prohibiting the growing of GM soybeans; and proof emerging that the authors of a study calling for GM crops to be fast-tracked into Britain all have links to the biotech industry, there can be little doubt that important steps are being taken towards bringing the GM madness to an end.

At the same time, however, we should not fool ourselves into thinking that victory is already assured in mankind's battle for natural food. The fact that GM seeds can be patented – because, just like pharmaceutical drugs, they are created in laboratories and do not exist in nature – continues to make them a highly attractive investment proposition to the companies that produce them. Patents on GM seeds, and the multi-billion dollar profits and market control that may result from them, are acting as powerful incentives for the biotech industry to find ways of forcing GM foods onto our dinner plates, regardless of the dangers to human health.

Moreover, given the fact that the biotech industry uses a patent-based business model, it is hardly surprising that drug and chemical companies have also moved into this area and are actively now involved in the production and promotion of GM seeds. In the world of the future, these companies envisage that our health and lives would be utterly dominated by pharmaceutical drugs, GM foods and patented chemical food additives. As a result, human rights would permanently become secondary to the interests of corporate profits.

Our philosophy is that change is only possible if knowledge can be turned into action. In producing this newsletter and coordinating the Movement of Life, we are providing you with free knowledge and information that has real potential to change the world. However, this will only happen if you share what you learn with your friends, family and everyone you come into contact with. A better world for everybody is possible, but only if all of us play our part in bringing it about.

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, 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.
