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.
