The Pharmaceutical "Business with Disease"

There is an entire industry with an innate economic interest to obstruct, suppress and discredit any information about the eradication of diseases. The pharmaceutical industry makes over one trillion dollars from selling drugs for ongoing diseases. These drugs may relieve symptoms, but they do not cure. We have to realize that the mission of this industry is to make money from ongoing diseases. The cure or eradication of a disease leads to the collapse of a multi-billion dollar market of pharmaceuticals.

I encourage you to read the key points about the nature of the pharmaceutical business and to think about each of them. Now you will understand why we are bombarded with advertising campaigns by pharmaceutical companies wanting to make us believe that they are “Searching for Cures” “ Striving for the Eradica-tion of Diseases” or “Increasing Life Expectancy” and other false promises. With these deceptive statements, the pharmaceutical industry has for decades been able to disguise the true nature of its business – maximum profit from ongoing diseases.

The Pharmaceutical "Business with Disease" Causes More Deaths Than All Wars of Mankind Combined

As a direct consequence of the pharmaceutical business, more people have died from preventable disease than in all wars of mankind combined. The following summarizes the steps leading to this tragedy.

The fact that vitamin C stabilizes the walls of arteries, for example, has been known for 200 years, ever since James Lind uncovered vitamin C deficiency as the cause of blood loss and scurvy. Any head of a pharmaceutical company, any Ph.D. or M.D. who denies knowing this fact is simply incredulous.

Why, then, was this information not applied to medicine in order to combat cardiovascular disease? Why was the official RDA for vitamin C set at 60 mg, an amount barely sufficient to prevent scurvy but certainly low enough to make sure that cardiovascular diseases will become an epidemic? The following page gives the answer.

Throughout this century, the pharmaceutical companies knew that an optimum vitamin supply of the population would lead to the collapse of a multi-billion dollar market of prescription drugs. Moreover, vitamins are not patentable and the profit margins are low. On the basis of this analysis the survival of the pharmaceutical industry became dependent on two strategies:

  • To obstruct research, information, and use of vitamins and other natural therapies by all means available.
  • To promote the deception that patentable synthetic drugs are the answer to human diseases.

The Pharmaceutical Industry Is As Indispensable for a Country as Cancer Is for the Body

How is it that millions of people are still willing to pay billions of dollars to the pharma-cartel for medicine that does not cure and frequently harms?

The answer to this question is that over the past century the pharma-cartel and their army of lobbyists have built an intricate maze of control, infiltration, economic incentives, bribes, manipulation, and deception. The most important elements of this maze are summarized on the following page. Millions of people and patients were systematically deceived by this maze of

  • Manipulation of research so that synthetic drugs rather than natural therapies appear as “medicine”,
  • Prescription of this “medicine” by doctors who have had no education in nutritional medicine and who receive financial benefits for prescribing pharmaceuticals but not natural therapies,
  • Deception by multi-million dollar advertising campaigns for pharmaceutical drugs that deliberately deceive the public about the effects and risks of drugs and about the unethical nature of the pharma-business,
  • Regulation brought about by regulatory agencies and legislation under the pressure of a pharma-lobby, disallowing established health claims for vitamins and other natural remedies.

In the future no nation can afford to burden its economy with a pharmaceutical industry that grows like a cancer at the expense of the people, of corporations and of the public sector, all of which suffocate from exploding health care costs for a medicine that does not cure.

21st Century: Liberation from Human Health

500 years ago, the Roman church was making billions of Thaler (early dollars) by selling indulgences, an imaginary “key to heaven”for its believers. Then the fraud scheme collapsed and with it much of the power of the church. Today, the pharma business uses the same fraud scheme. It tries to sell the “ key to health” to millions of people and takes away billions of dollars in return for an illusion: the deception that the pharmaceutical industry is interested in your health.

Considering this unhealthy state of affairs, the urgency for a new health care is obvious. The liberation from this insane yoke of the pharmaceutical industry will immediately and directly benefit millions of people, the business community and the public sector of all nations. This new health care system is based on an improved knowledge and participation by millions of people. Basic health has become understandable, doable and affordable for everyone. The era in human history when health was delegated to an industry that shamelessly took advantage of it is over and gone.

The new health care system focuses on primary health care, prevention and eradication of diseases. Health consultants and health centers will replace many medical hightech centers of today. Every health food store is the beginning for a community health center.

The new health care system is being built by dedicated lay people together with a growing number of doctors and health professionals. The majority of health professionals are realizing that they themselves had been compromised by pharmaceutical companies and had become victims of a drug-centered health care.
