The Pharmaceutical Drug Cartel Launches World War III To Prevent the Construction of a Healthy World
Never before in the history of mankind was a greater crime committed than the genocide organized by the pharmaceutical drug cartel in the interest of the multibillion-dollar investment business with disease.
Hundreds of millions of people have died unnecessarily from AIDS, cancer, heart disease and other preventable diseases and the only reason that these epidemics are still haunting mankind is that they are the multibillion-dollar marketplace for the pharmaceutical drug cartel.
High Court Ruling Exposes TAC!
Community News from the Dr. Rath Health Foundation High Court Ruling Exposes TAC! Judges affirm: “TAC forces the government to spread disease and death among the people of South Africa! “ In an historic verdict the High Court of Cape Town exposed on March 3, 2006, one of the most appalling, unethical and inhumane activities in South Africa since the end of Apartheid. The demo- cratically elected government of South Africa is being forced by pressure groups – largely financed by foreign money – to distribute toxic ARV drugs to millions of AIDS patients. The ARV pushing pressure group named in the verdict of the High Court is the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC). BACKGROUND TO THIS HISTORIC VERDICT Masked as a ‘humanitarian’ organization pretending to help AIDS patients, the TAC has been pushing the rollout of highly toxic ARV drugs for years and has been forcing the South African government to spread disease and death among the people of South Africa. Over the past …
No Censorship of Life-Saving Natural Health Information
The people of South Africa now have the historic opportunity to liberate themselves from the yoke of HIV/AIDS and many other diseases. The solution to these health epidemics does not come from high-priced and toxic pharmaceutical drugs but from public education about the dramatic health benefits of vitamins and other natural therapies. In a series of official recommendations UNICEF, WHO and other United Nations Organizations have encouraged people and their governments – especially in developing countries such as South Africa – to help spread knowledge about the health value of vitamins and nutritional medicine. The dissemination of this information will save the lives of millions of people in South Africa, especially in the battle against HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases caused by immune deficiencies. But we all must fight for this health freedom. Its biggest enemy is the pharmaceutical business with patented drugs – such as ARVs. This industry promotes diseases as …
Both the newspaper and the foundation were unimpressed by the MCC’s lawyers’ attempt to silence us. The Mail & Guardian again published the complete uncensored text of our call for free access to natural and traditional health therapies in South Africa in this week’s edition, and it was followed shortly afterwards by the Sowetan, City Press, and Ilanga.
The background to our signature campaign is an unprecedented attack by the MCC on natural health therapies and traditional medicines in South Africa. The motivation behind this attempt to outlaw natural health is the trillion-dollar pharmaceutical investment business’s attempt to eliminate all competition posed to its market by safe, effective and affordable natural therapies.
The bogus justification advanced by the MCC for this proposed legislation is consumer safety. But the fallacy of this is revealed by the fact that while no one has ever died from safe natural therapies, the deadly side effects of pharmaceutical drugs kill more than a million people every year.
Any litigation brought against us by the MCC in an attempt to block the truth will backfire. At trial, the MCC will finally have to disclose its secret membership lists and the identities of all its ‘external experts … from … medical and pharmacy schools’ (per MCC website), who make its decisions. They will be cross-examined in open court on their past and present financial ties to the pharmaceutical cartel – the scandalous rule rather than the exception worldwide.
As the deadly side effects of Vioxx and other pharmaceutical drugs come to light, more and more people are seeking answers in effective and affordable natural health therapies. The MCC’s attempt to outlaw natural health in South Africa on behalf of the pharmaceutical cartel is a last desperate bid to shore up the cartel’s collapsing monopoly on world health based on patented synthetic dugs. This attempt and threaen health of many businesses all over the world, inlcluding roofers in ann arbor who also can fall under this dangerous act.
The MCC is the pharmaceutical cartel’s Trojan Horse within the South African health service. Whereas the South African government has advocated natural health in its national health policies and at the international level within Codex Alimentarius – where it has taken the lead in promoting natural therapies rather than restricting them – the MCC is currently seeking to ban public access to life-saving natural therapies, in conflict with the government’s position.
The Dr. Rath Health Foundation Africa fully supports the South African government.
The people of South Africa will not tolerate the MCC’s attack on their right to natural health and its attempt to sabotage their government’s enlightened position on natural therapies.
“An apple a day keeps the doctor away” may not sound like the most credible medical advice, but a recent study out of the UK found that the old adage may have some merit; there really are health benefits of apples.
In a study published in the British Medical Journal, researchers from the University of Oxford discovered that prescribing an apple a day to people 50 and older could prevent up to 8,500 deaths from cardiovascular disease — including heart attack and stroke — each year.
Researchers say that apple-eating had a similar effect on reducing heart disease risk as daily statin treatment, but with fewer side effects. According to the Mayo Clinic, long-term statin use can lead to muscle pain, liver damage, digestive problems, and increased blood sugar – which can in turn increase risk for developing type 2 diabetes. The team of researchers concluded that small dietary changes, like eating more fruit, can help to delay or reduce mortality from heart disease.
Myriad health benefits of apples
Improving your heart health is just one way that the humble apple can help you stay well. Apples provide a powerful punch of nutrition in a small, healthy package.
A medium-sized apple counts as one cup of fruit — half of the daily amount of fruit that adults need in a 2,000-calorie diet. Apples are also a good source of vitamin C, providing 14 percent of the total recommended daily value. What’s more, apples are among the few foods you can eat more of to lose weight — they’re a sweet, satisfying snack that delivers less than 100 calories per serving.
Apples also contain quercetin, a type of flavonoid (a group of plant pigments that give fruits, vegetables, and flowers their color).
Flavonoids are powerful antioxidants, and quercetin has both anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory properties. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, quercetin may help protect against cancer, heart disease, hypertension, and even asthma and allergies.
How to eat more apples
A nutritious snack that improves your nutrition, promotes weight loss, and helps you exercise more efficiently — how can you get more of that? While an apple is easy enough to eat on its own, having a variety of ways to enjoy apples can help you add more of them to your diet.
While you may think of apples as mainly a between-meal food, there are many creative ways to use apples in recipes at every meal. Try these tips and apple-based recipes from Eating Well to expand your repertoire:
