A new study has found almost 70 different pharmaceutical drugs in insects and spiders in rivers around Melbourne, Australia. Commenting on the finding, the researchers express concern that trout and other predators which feed on the bugs are being exposed to daily doses of some drugs, such as antidepressants, that are up to half of those prescribed to humans. Published in the scientific journal Nature Communications, the study adds to growing evidence that the pharmaceutical industry is having a dangerous impact on food chains, water supplies, and the environment.

Meryl Dorey, past-president and founder of the AVN, Australia’s national vaccine-safety consumer health lobby group, has called upon Jill Hennessy, Victoria’s Health Minister, to demonstrate that, “There are no risks in vaccinating your children”.
“I am asking the Minister to do voluntarily what she is forcing upon children – to take the entire vaccination schedule over the next 4 years, starting with the birth dose of Hepatitis B, and continuing on to the 4-year old dose of DTPa-IPV.”
In her role with the AVN, Ms Dorey has spoken with thousands of Australian men and women whose children or loved ones have either died or been permanently and profoundly injured by vaccination.
“There are currently 41 vaccinations administered to children in Australia between birth and 4 years of age – more if you are of Aboriginal or Torres-Strait Islander descent. Ms Hennessy needs to take all of these vaccines and also receive an annual flu shot as recommended for all children over the age of 6 months to show her faith in the safety of this medical procedure.
“If she agrees to this, and completes the schedule without any evidence of harm, I will resign from the AVN, retire from this issue and never speak publicly about vaccination again.”, Ms Dorey stated.
The terms are as follows:
1. Minister Hennessy must undergo a complete physical from an ACNEM-trained physician who will assess her health status, do a full analysis of her bloodwork and refer her for an MRI scan to show a baseline level of her overall condition so that any vaccine-injuries can be noted should they occur. These tests must be repeated at the conclusion of the 4-year period.
2. A small amount of each vaccine vial is to be drawn out just prior to injection to be assessed at an independent laboratory.
3. As required for children, Ms Hennessy must be vaccinated on schedule even if she is suffering from minor infections, currently undergoing a course of antibiotics or suffering from seizure disorders, allergies or any other acute or chronic conditions. The only contraindication will be if she has an anaphylactic reaction to a dose of any vaccine and if that does occur, she will only be exempted from that particular vaccination; all other shots will continue to be administered.
4. If Ms Hennessy has already received some of these injections as boosters, she will still be required to stick to the schedule since many of our children are getting vaccinated and revaccinated multiple times. After all, according to the Minister, there are no risks to any vaccine.
“Ms Hennessy has played fast and loose with the truth of vaccine injury; she has insulted and denigrated loving, well-informed Australian families by claiming that there is no such thing as vaccine injury, and it is time for her to roll up her sleeve.
“Will she show her faith in childhood vaccinations by putting her own health on the line?”

A new study published in the British Medical Journal confirms that cholesterol-lowering statin drugs are overprescribed for primary prevention of cardiovascular disease.
The publication of this latest research comes only a matter of months after another study linked use of statins to the development of a potentially fatal muscle disease. Published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, patients with the muscle condition were found to be almost twice as likely to have been taking statins compared to similar individuals from the general population.
In addition to their adverse effects on muscles, a review of the scientific literature shows that statins can also raise the risk of cognitive problems; cancer; strokes; damage to the peripheral nervous system; sexual dysfunction; thyroid problems; kidney disease; behavioral disorders; heart problems; neurodegenerative disease; autoimmune diseases; pancreatic problems; liver disease; skin problems; gastrointestinal problems; fatigue; psychiatric problems; sleep problems; as well as negatively affecting many other aspects of health.
It is bad enough that millions of patients taking cholesterol-lowering drugs remain mostly unaware of these dangers. Arguably worse still however is the fact that the drugs also fail to address the primary cause of cardiovascular disease.
To learn about a groundbreaking study in which scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute proved that cardiovascular disease is essentially an early form of the vitamin C deficiency disease scurvy, read this press release on our website.
To find out how heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, and other cardiovascular conditions can be prevented and controlled naturally, without drugs, read Dr. Rath’s lifesaving book, Why Animals Don’t Get Heart Attacks…But People Do!

Speech given by Paul Anthony Taylor on 10th September, 2017, at a meeting of the Dr. Rath Health Alliance held in Leimen, Germany.
Responsibility for Health, Peace and Social Justice. This is the motto of the Dr. Rath Health Foundation. You will probably have seen these words many times on our website. But do you understand what the connection is between health, peace, and social justice?
The “health” part is obvious, of course. Promoting health is the reason why we are all here this weekend. Our goal is a world where good health is available to everybody. A world in which the health interests of people are more important than the profit interests of the Pharma Cartel. A world in which safe and effective natural therapies are used to prevent and even eradicate diseases, by focusing on their root causes.
But without social justice, it won’t be possible to create such a world. For health to be available to everybody, we need a world that is fair and just. A world in which health is seen as a human right. Otherwise, the natural health approaches we have been talking about this weekend will not be available to everybody. At best, they will only be available to small numbers of privileged people. At worst, they won’t be available at all. In a world that is not fair or just, the Pharma Cartel and its stakeholders will be able to prevent people from accessing natural health approaches. And ensure that drug approaches are the only option available. So our mission of Health for All will not be achievable without social justice.
But a healthy world also has to be a peaceful one. At the current time, total global military spending is more than one point six trillion dollars a year. Do you realize how much money this is? One point six trillion dollars is more than the gross domestic products of the world’s one hundred and twenty poorest countries added together! In other words, if you add together all of the money earned from selling goods and services each year in the world’s one hundred and twenty poorest countries, the total is less than what the world spends each year on its armies, wars, and weapons for killing people. Clearly, if the world continues to put war before health, we will not have peace, social justice, or Health for All.
But imagine what would be possible if this one point six trillion dollars was available to spend on health! Imagine what we could do in a world where achieving health, not global conquest, was the highest goal! Imagine what we could achieve if our right to health was protected by law! These are all things that we have to work towards. But to achieve them, there are many barriers that we have to overcome.
Currently, for example, under the Brussels EU, the laws controlling natural health therapies are highly restrictive. There are restrictions on the types and amounts of ingredients that can be put in supplements. There are also restrictions on what can be said about supplements when promoting them.
From over forty-four thousand nutrition and health claims that were submitted to the Brussels EU under its ‘Nutrition and Health Claims Regulation’, which became law in 2006, only just over two hundred and sixty have been authorized for use. This proves that the Brussels EU wants to prevent us from learning about the existence of over a century of research and scientific discoveries on vitamins and other essential micronutrients.
The only beneficiary from this situation is the Pharma Cartel. The Pharma Cartel wants these restrictions to continue – and even for them to be increased – because they protect its trillion dollar a year market in patented drugs. So we have to change this.
But let me also be very clear. Our Foundation fully supports the idea of a united Europe. However, our vision is the opposite of what the Brussels EU stands for. Our vision is for a ‘Europe for the People, by the People’. A democratic Europe in which natural preventive healthcare approaches make possible the elimination of diseases that currently kill millions of people worldwide every year. This vision cannot be achieved under the Brussels EU dictatorship model for Europe.
The Brussels EU is the global politburo for the Pharma Cartel and its gigantic Business with Disease. The Brussels EU is not protecting our health, it is protecting the interests of the Pharma Cartel. To the Brussels EU, our health is secondary to the profits of the Pharma Cartel.
In this situation, it is our responsibility to educate our fellow citizens. It is our role to tell the world about the life-saving potential of Cellular Medicine. Ladies and gentleman, nobody else is going to do this for us. We have to do it ourselves.
Through the use of the natural health approaches you have been hearing about this weekend, we have the science and the possibility to save millions of lives. If we have the knowledge, and the opportunity, this means we also have a historic responsibility to save lives. Lives that depend upon each of us understanding this. Diseases that can be prevented, and lives that can be saved. But only if we commit to taking action.
Ladies and gentleman, the scientific discoveries you have heard about this weekend are one hundred percent unique. The political analysis you have heard is also unique. There is no other organization in the world that can give you the combination of world-changing scientific research and incisive political analysis that you have heard from us here this weekend. By working together, we can create a world of health, peace and social justice. It is no longer just a possibility. Each of us has it in our hands to start making it happen today. So let each of us commit, here and now, to achieving it together.
Thank you very much.

The Greek pharmaceutical industry has reached its limits due to the burdens imposed on it by the country’s government during the financial crisis, Greek pharma chief Olympios Papadimitriou says.
Following its adoption of the Brussels EU currency, the euro, and the subsequent European financial crisis that began in 2009, the healthcare system in Greece has been in meltdown. With the country’s spending on healthcare per head of population having been reduced by nearly a third, shortages of drugs and equipment in hospitals have become the norm. More than 2.5 million of the country’s 10.7 million people have been left without any healthcare coverage.
Seen in light of these facts, the accusation of the pharmaceutical industry – that burdens imposed on it by the Greek government are supposedly “unreasonable” – speaks volumes. Globally, the pharmaceutical industry makes over one trillion dollars per year from the sale of drugs. Driven by the profits it makes for its shareholders, improving human health is not its driving force. At best, so far as drug companies are concerned, improving health comes a very poor second to the primary goal of profiting from the continued existence of diseases.
Meantime, the science to support a global revolution in our healthcare systems, in the form of nutritional and Cellular Medicine therapies, is already in place. Based on these science-based natural health approaches, which directly focus on the chronic deficiencies of micronutrients that are the root causes of chronic diseases, major killers such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and others could soon be brought under control both safely and effectively.
To learn why we may soon be witnessing the beginning of the end of the multinational pharmaceutical industry, read this article on our website.
