To the people and governments of the world – An Open Letter by Dr. Matthias Rath (Extensive)

The following graph summarizes the ongoing global scam of public manipulation on behalf of those known vested interests:

III. Clear answers: What you should do now

There is reason to be concerned about the current pandemic, in order to take responsible actions to contain it. But there is no reason for hysteria or to succumb to a global psychological paralysis that primarily serves the corporate interests propelling it.

There is reason to follow the safety advice of the authorities, but there is no reason to give up our fundamental human rights. To the contrary, now is the moment to defend them.

This Open Letter offers effective, safe and affordable advice to strengthen the immune resistance of everyone. But this advice goes far beyond the current pandemic. Vitamins and other essential micronutrients are effective in helping to prevent other diseases as well, including cardiovascular disease and cancer. Thus, for the people and governments of the world, the current crisis offers a unique opportunity to familiarize themselves with the rapid progress made in this field of medical science and to take a giant leap forward towards a global system of health care that focuses on the prevention and eradication of diseases.

I am hereby calling upon:

1. The people of the world

Follow the instructions of the authorities. The following recommendations are additional recommendations:

Short term:

  • Make – ideally fresh – fruits and vegetables, rich in vitamins and essential amino acids, your main nutrition throughout the day. If you can, start an organic garden at home.
  • Fight isolation, fear and paralysis by carefully reading this letter and studying the links it contains.
  • Familiarize yourself with current knowledge about the benefits of micronutrients from the world’s largest online library, Pubmed.gov. If you search for the following key words you will be surprised about the knowledge that is available today:
  • You may use online translation programs to translate the available summaries (abstracts) of these studies into your own language. Even if the texts are scientific, you will be surprised how much you can understand.
  • After browsing through this wealth of natural health information, I encourage you to switch on the TV and watch the news or read a newspaper. You will hardly hear anything about the thousands of studies on the health benefits of vitamins. This way you can experience the media’s amazing natural health ‘wall of silence’ for yourself.
  • Talk about the health benefits of vitamins in fighting infections and other diseases with everyone you know – in your family, community, church, and sports club etc.
  • Email the facts you learned from this letter and forward them to everyone you know.
  • Print out this letter out mail copies of it to people who, like you, may also be interested to learn about this important information.
  • Hardly any political decision taker – from local to national level – has this information. So send it to your mayor and the political representatives of your local community as well. Then call them by telephone and make sure they have read it. You should also ask them to forward this information to the higher levels of government.
  • Above all, help improve the immune system of yourself, your children and your loved ones by developing a ‘family health plan’ based on healthy nutrition. This way the current crisis turns into a life-changing positive experience.

Natural Health becomes a human right

Some of my readers may have followed the contents of this Open Letter with some disbelief. Can it really be that a powerful global industry has risen in the midst of our societies that is based on such unethical principles, and now – that the world community is turning their back on them – is trying to cement its grip on humanity through enabling laws and psychological warfare?

For all such readers, the following historical analogy may be helpful: In the 16th century, human progress had reached a point when mankind had advanced to usher in the Modern Times. The Medieval powers, however, insisted on maintaining their feudal privileges. In the ensuing ’30-Year War’ these Medieval powers of Europe dragged the entire continent with them into the abyss. To no avail – the advent of Modern Times could not be stopped. I already shared this historic analogy with the readers of the New York Times 17 years ago, on March 9, 2003.

Today, the merchandise of the global petrochemical as well as pharmaceutical investment business is – in the interests of the people of the world – being systematically replaced by superior and safer technologies. This pending demise of these multitrillion-dollar global investment businesses poses an existential threat to their stakeholders. In an attempt to postpone their own demise, they are apparently ready to drag all mankind with them into the abyss, ruin the existence of countless people and businesses, curtail human rights and abolish democracy.

The current pandemic is a decisive moment in human history. In the 16th century the people of Europe had no chance to avoid the destruction of their continent – because there was no precedent in history available for them to learn from. Today, the situation is different: With the events 400 years ago, we have such an historic parallel. We can act and prevent this!

With the help of information in this letter, the people and governments of the world have the opportunity – and responsibility – to protect democracy and turn this crisis into one of the greatest steps forward in human history: The starting point for a global movement with the goal to liberate human health from its century-long captivity by special interests – and deliver into the hands of the following generation a much more healthy world.

Natural health becomes a human right now!

Wishing you good health,
Dr. Matthias Rath

The Ongoing Crimes Of The Business With Disease: Pharma’s Reputation In Ruins

Dr Rath Health Foundation – Paul Anthony Taylor – Feb 28, 2019

Until the latter years of the twentieth century, only rarely did the mainstream media give prominent coverage to the criminal nature of the pharma industry. While incidents such as the thalidomide affair had raised awareness of the dangers of drugs, the pharma industry was still largely perceived as providing a benefit to mankind. Today, however, its public image is very different.

In recent years, the list of crimes and misconducts committed by pharma companies has included falsifying data on drugs; failing to warn patients of the dangers of drugs; contributing to and profiting from the opioid crisis; as well as bribing doctors and health officials. Not only has this resulted in mainstream media news reports on such incidents becoming commonplace, the pharma industry’s reputation now lies in ruins.

Falsifying data on drugs

It is often claimed that the pharma approach to medicine is science-based. In reality, however, this is far from being the case. In their pursuit of regulatory approval and multibillion-dollar profits, pharma companies are well known to manipulate study results. A recent case is that of Acerta Pharma, a U.S. drug company, which in 2015 falsified data on acalabrutinib, a drug for blood cancer.

British drug company AstraZeneca bought a majority stake in Acerta Pharma in 2016, on the basis of claims that acalabrutinib had supposedly been shown to have a therapeutic benefit in a mouse model of pancreatic cancer. However, shortly before the AstraZeneca cash injection, Acerta had to retract a study abstract purporting to show the drug was effective. AstraZeneca subsequently admitted the data was faked, blaming it on a former employee of Acerta.

Acalabrutinib went on to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treating a form of lymphoma. But as we shall see next, failing to share the facts is anything but rare in the pharma industry.

Failing to warn patients of the dangers of drugs

Clearly, given how dangerous drugs are, faked study data makes the occurrence of unpredictable side effects even more likely. And yet, when problems arise, pharma companies still often fail to warn about them.

In 2017 it was announced that hundreds of patient deaths and millions of adverse events were linked to Roche’s rheumatoid arthritis drug Actemra. Some reports put the number of deaths at more than a thousand. An investigation found that patients taking the drug were dying from cardiovascular and pulmonary complications and that, unlike other rheumatoid arthritis drugs, the Actemra label did not carry warnings about these risks. Competing medications for the condition were already well known to be associated with heart attacks, heart failure or life-threatening lung complications, and labeled accordingly.

Despite having failed to warn of such risks, Roche made around $1.7 billion from Actemra in 2016.

Contributing to and profiting from the opioid crisis

Beginning in the late 1990s there was a rapid increase in the use of prescription opioid drugs. By 2011 prescription opioids had become the most prescribed class of medications in the United States. Chemically related to heroin, and with similar effects, prescription opioids are highly addictive. As a result, between 1999 and 2017, almost 218,000 Americans died from overdoses related to these drugs.

Purdue Pharma, a U.S. drug company, is seen by many observers as having been largely responsible for the rise of this situation. After introducing OxyContin, a powerful opioid painkiller, in 1996, the company proceeded to market it aggressively as a drug that was supposedly less addictive, less subject to abuse, and less likely to cause narcotic side effects.

A decade later, Purdue executives admitted in court proceedings they had marketed and promoted the drug with the intent to defraud or mislead. In 2007 in one of the largest pharmaceutical settlements in U.S. history, the company was fined $600 million. Compared to the $35 billion or so that OxyContin had reportedly helped net for Purdue, however, the fine was essentially small change.

Bribing doctors and health officials

With billions of dollars at stake, pharma companies will even resort to outright bribery if it produces higher profits. An illustration of this occurred in 2014, when GlaxoSmithKline, a British firm, was fined $489 million by Chinese authorities for bribing health officials. The company was found to have used a network of travel agencies to funnel bribes to doctors and hospitals in China in order to have its products promoted.

The Chinese bribery case brought international humiliation for one of Britain’s largest companies. In receiving the fine, GlaxoSmithKline joined a long list of pharma companies that have been involved in bribery. Other examples include NovartisSanofiJohnson & Johnson, and Pfizer. With their industry’s reputation lying in ruins, these companies only have themselves to blame.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr Explains How Big Pharma Completely Owns Congress

Global Research – Feb 5, 2019 – By Arjun Walia

Robert F. Kennedy Jr, Chairman of the Board of Directors for Children’s Health Defence

Those of you who have been involved in the past in the battle to protect our children from poorly made vaccines or toxic chemicals in our food or in our water know the power of these industries and how they’ve undermined every institution in our democracy that is supposed to protect little children from powerful, greedy corporations. Even the pharmaceutical companies have been able to purchase congress. They’re the largest lobbying entity in Washington D.C.. They have more lobbyists in Washington D.C. than there are congressman and senators combined. They give twice to congress what the next largest lobbying entity is, which is oil and gas… Imagine the power they exercise over both republicans and democrats. They’ve captured them (our regulatory agencies) and turned them into sock puppets. They’ve compromised the press… and they destroy the publications that publish real science. (Robert F. Kennedy Jr, from the video below)

Robert F. Kennedy Jr, Chairman of the Board of Directors for Children’s Health Defence (a worthy cause if you’re looking for one to donate to) has been fighting against big corporations that have taken over and undermined American government health regulatory agencies for a number of years. One of the most recent examples is when Robert F. Kennedy Jr represented Dewayne Johnson, a school groundskeeper who successfully brought forward a lawsuit alleging glyphosate caused his cancer. That’s right, he won!

There are currently thousands of cases pending against Monsanto, which is only one of multiple powerful companies influencing agencies like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And to think, these are the agencies providing us with ‘science’ in order to get the food, medications, and other products produced by these big corporations to be deemed safe. Not only that, but these agencies are providing educational resources to medical schools, which Big Pharma has completely taken over as well.

It’s truly unbelievable that, in this day and age, education has turned into brainwashing. Science is corrupted, altered, changed, ignored, and swept under the rug just because it threatens the interests of a few powerful people and the corporations they hide behind.

It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”   Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) (source)

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s pesticide Round Up,  is a perfect example, as science has been showing for decades how incredibly harmful it is for human health and the environment, yet it’s approved as ‘safe’ for use in the western world. It’s no mystery why glyphosate is illegal in the majority of countries around the world. The same goes for genetically modified foods, which is what Round Up was designed to be used on. Years ago, a lawsuit forced the FDA to divulge its files on genetically engineered foods.

“As part of the process, they portrayed the various concerns as merely the ignorant opinions of misinformed individuals – and derided them as not only unscientific, but anti-science. They then set to work to convince the public and government officials, through the dissemination of false information, that there was an overwhelming expert consensus, based on solid evidence, that GMOs were safe.” – Jane Goodall
