Gustav Ringhofer, Heart Patient from Austria

This speech was given at the demonstration on November 26, 2001 outside the BgVV (Federal Consumer Health Protection Agency) building at Diedersdorfer Weg 1 in Berlin-Marienfelde.

Well, good morning. You'll hear from my accent that I'm from abroad. I come from Graz. I want to say a few quick words about my medical history.

Gustav Ringhofer

Last year in April I suffered a severe posterior myocardial infarction. Conventional medicine told me, or rather didn't tell me but ordered me in an almost military tone of voice to have a quadruple bypass, both leg arteries new, both carotid arteries new. And I quite simply refused to spend the rest of my life going round as a spare parts repository for garden hoses! My consultant told me that if I didn't have these operations - and as I said that was in April last year - my life expectancy would be three months.

That makes me all the more pleased to be able to be here today to tell you what saved me from these operations and - I feel this is right, not that I know - that I will almost certainly not end up in hospital because of a heart attack, stroke or similar. And I have Dr. Matthias Rath to thank for that.


I do know one thing: if these people today (Codex Alimentarius) force through their resolutions, then I will probably become the biggest lawbreaker in Austria with three court cases a week. I don't give a damn. I will ... spread this message far and wide and if I end up in prison, then I'll also find people to listen to me there.

So thank you all for listening to me. I wish you all the best and the best of health. And the truth is on our side and it will not allow anything to stand in its way. Ciao. Goodbye.
