A Crucial Moment In History

The goal of your Foundation is “Health for All by the Year 2020™”. Do you really believe it is possible to accomplish this goal?

With the scientific knowledge currently available in the area of vitamin research and cellular medicine it is possible to largely eliminate three out of four diseases in the industrialized world. In the developing countries more than 2 billion people suffer from deficiencies in micronutrients rendering them susceptible to infectious diseases and other health problems. Together with education, improved hygiene and measures to fight hunger and unemployment, the knowledge about the health benefits of micronutrients will be a key factor in improving the health and the well being of the people in the developing world.

And imagine the amount of money that will be liberated for education and other social measures, once it is no longer drained by the pharmaceutical industry and its largely ineffective and unsafe “business with disease”. On a global level we are talking about trillions of dollars that will become available for preventive health measures, education and to meet other social needs once the pharmaceutical business with disease is largely banned from this planet.

Of course there will be still diseases in the year 2020, but heart attacks, strokes, cancer, osteoporosis and many other of today’s most common health problems will no longer be epidemics. I’m convinced that our Foundation can make a major contribution for mankind to accomplish the important goal of “Health for All by the Year 2020™”.

In this interview I have taken great care to develop a strategy for our planet to survive. As the scientist who has been fighting and exposing for more than a decade those interest groups who prevented a world of health and peace thus far, I consider it my responsibility to offer this contribution to the people of the world.

How can anyone, anywhere in the world work with your Foundation and support its goals?

At the present time our main means of communication is the Internet. In the absence of the World Health Organization fulfilling its mission to provide natural health information to the people of the world, we have taken on this important task as one of our first focuses.

The website of our Foundation has become the main source worldwide for natural health information for patients, health professionals and health politicians anywhere in the world. We are working vigorously to make this information available in as many languages as possible.

We encourage everyone to communicate with us either by letters, facsimile or e-mail and send us information about pilot projects, either existing or planned, that start the implementation of natural health in the village, community or country where you live.

Our Foundation also serves as a clearinghouse for the campaign to put pressure on the governments of the world to bring those interests behind disease and war to justice. To facilitate that, we are preparing an international hearing in The Hague, the Netherlands, that will gather the information already available now to expose those interest groups. By doing that, we intend to facilitate the governments of the world to initiate a formal complaint at the International Criminal Court in the same city.

These are two of the most urgent projects that we encourage everyone in the world to participate in by whatever means you have available.

You have proposed a ‘Constitution for a New World’. What are its contents and why did you do this?

Never before in history have the people of the world been more united in their desire for a peaceful world - from the mother of the dead US-soldier in New York to the father of the dead child in Baghdad, to billions of people in the developing world who ultimately pay the price for the injustice existing on our planet.

With governments still intimidated by the US military power and too slow to realize the need for the world to get together now and make a statement, someone needs to stand up and say publicly what millions of people think: this is the time for the people of the earth to stand together, solve the problem at hand, and build a new world.

As the scientist whose discoveries have contributed to putting the pharmaceutical cartel in a corner with their only escape being to take the entire world with them in their own demise, I consider it my responsibility to propose this “People’s Agenda” as a constitution and a plan of action for a new world serving the interests of the people. I call upon every citizen to support and start working for this Agenda for the sake of the future of our planet. Talk with your friends and colleagues about it and make it part of the political agenda in your country.

This “People’s Agenda” reads as follows:

"Constitution for a New Common World of Peace, Health and Social Justice"

At the beginning of the third millennium mankind stands at the crossroads. On the one hand are the interests of six billion people currently inhabiting our planet - and of all future generations - who wish to live a dignified and healthy life in a peaceful world. On the other hand is a small corporate interest group denying the whole of mankind these basic human rights for one reason only - financial greed.

In this situation, we, the people of the world, have the choice: we either continue accepting the yoke of those investment industries forcing wars and diseases upon us or we liberate ourselves from these burdens and start building a world determined by the principles of peace, health and social justice.

We, the people of the world, recognize that never before in the course of history have we been more united to preserve peace, to terminate the investment 'business with disease' and to bring to justice those who sacrifice peace and health for corporate gain.

Therefore, we the people from East and West, North and South, from rich and poor countries have decided to create a world of peace, health and social justice for ourselves and generations to come.

As our fundamental rights we proclaim:

THE RIGHT TO PEACE. We, the people of the world, are determined to defend our right to peace with all means available. In the age of weapons of mass destruction war is no longer an option for solving international conflicts. We will make sure that those who conduct a war without an explicit mandate by international law will be held responsible and will be brought to justice for their crimes. We will not rest until they are punished - irrespective of economic or political consequences - because we recognize that this is the only way to protect our planet from destruction.

THE RIGHT TO LIFE. We, the people of the world, are determined to defend our right to life with all means available. We will not rest until all factors shortening the life span of people on our planet are eliminated. We will fight hunger, malnutrition and other factors already killing millions of inhabitants of our planet each year including infants and children. We will also terminate the 'investment business with disease' as the result of which more people have died prematurely from preventable diseases than in all wars of mankind put together.

THE RIGHT TO HEALTH. We, the people of the world, are determined to defend our right to health with all means available. We will make sure that the pharmaceutical 'business with disease' the deliberate promotion of diseases for corporate gain, is outlawed worldwide. We will bring to justice those who deliberately promote diseases and those who withhold life-saving information on natural, non-patentable therapies. In providing health to our communities and in implementing national health care programs we will focus on effective and safe, natural health approaches. The primary goal of any health care strategy is prevention and eradication of diseases.

THE RIGHT TO SOCIAL JUSTICE. We, the people of the world, are determined to defend our right to social justice with all means available. We no longer accept that two out of three inhabitants of our planet live in poverty and illiteracy. We will make sure that the resources of the world are redistributed in a way that provides education and a dignified life for every citizen of our planet. To finance this redistribution we will use the financial resources liberated from terminating the multi-trillion dollar 'business with disease' and from decreasing military expenditure.

We recognize that as a first step to reach these goals those corporate interest groups promoting war and disease need to be brought to justice in international courts for sacrificing the lives of mil-lions of people and for committing other crimes against humanity.

Public exposure and punishment of the representatives of these corporate interest groups will remove the last obstacle for the people of the world to terminate the 'Dark Ages of Disease, War and Injustice' and start building a 'New World of Peace, Health and Social Justice'.
