12th of March: European-wide ban of vitamin therapies !

Tuesday, March 12 2002 - Filed under: General

Hello all of you on the lists from's a bit late in the day, but
if you can phone or e-mail an MEP today...please try and do so...our health
is at stake here...
Planned Europe-wide ban on vitamin therapies

Europe is once again standing at the crossroads. On 12th March the European
Parliament decides whether the people of Europe will continue to have
unrestricted access to side-effect free natural therapies or whether the
pharmaceutical lobby will succeed in reducing the European Parliament to the
role of the pharmaceutical cartel's Strasbourg puppet show.

Never before in history has there been such an intense struggle over the
right of the European people to natural, effective and side-effect free
health care. To date over 400 million (!) e-mails have been sent to EU
politicians demanding this right and rejecting the unscrupulous EU Directive
providing for a Europe-wide ban on vitamin therapies and whole groups of
natural substances, for example natural amino acids.

Only by being aware of the background facts can we understand the aggression
with which the pharmaceutical lobby and its political marionettes are
acting. How, otherwise, can we explain

- that there are still MEPs, particularly those from the pharmaceutical
republic of Germany, who are ignoring the 400 million no votes against this
Europe-wide muzzling law.

- that there are still EU politicians who believe in the pharmaceutical
lobby fairy tale of consumer protection from vitamins and other natural
substances, whereas every child now knows that no-one has ever died from
taking vitamins, whereas every year hundreds of thousands of people die from
the lethal side effects of pharmaceutical drugs (remember Lipobay?)

- that the planned EU Directive would ban precisely those natural
substances which have now proved vital to the breakthrough in the natural
fight against cancer: optimum doses of vitamin therapies in conjunction with
natural amino acids such as lysine and proline. These are now to be outlawed
under this unscrupulous EU Directive because they threaten a billion-pound
market in chemotherapy and other hazardous anti-cancer drugs.

- that the newly-erupting EU corruption scandal has now revealed that the
pharmaceutical lobby has managed to infiltrate a member of the supervisory
board of the second-largest pharmaceutical company in the world, in the
person of EU commissar Bolkenstein, into the 'cabinet of Europe' , without
this man ever having been elected by anyone.

Are you really surprised that the debate about EU corruption seems
never-ending, given that the unelected and anonymous pharmaceutical cartel
is sitting in the highest political body in Europe and is now issuing its
own laws from there?

In view of these alarming facts, the eyes of millions of Europeans have
turned to Strasbourg, where the European Parliament votes on the EU
Directive for the banning of natural therapies on 12th March. EU politicians
have the following choice: either to send out a message against corruption
of the EU by the pharmaceutical lobby by rejecting this directive, or to
vote for it, and in so doing reduce the entire European Parliament in the
eyes of the world to a Strasbourg puppet show run by the pharmaceutical
cartel. Worse still, any such decision would endanger the health and lives
of millions of Europeans.

On 12th March every European politician present will be taking the most
important decision of his or her life - and they will have to take
responsibility for it.

What you should do before the vote on 12th March:

- Phone the MEPs from your region, either in their UK or Brussels office
and insist on speaking to the MEP personally. As a voter you have that
right. Speak up for yourself!

- Demand a clear no vote from the MEP on the EU Directive on Dietary
Supplements on 12th March. No MEP has the right to ignore 400 million votes.

- Tell the MEPs that if they do not vote against this muzzling law, the
debate on EU corruption will grow still louder, because one group and one
group alone will profit from the outlawing of natural therapies: the
pharmaceutical industry.

- Point out that the consumer protection argument used by the
pharmaceutical lobby to attempt to force this directive through the European
Parliament is ridiculous in face of the facts: no person has ever died from
taking vitamins, whereas the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs have
become the fourth -most common cause of death.

- Say that it is unacceptable for laws affecting the health of all the
people of Europe to be made by a commission for which no-one has voted. Make
it clear that it is unacceptable, that members of the supervisory boards of
pharmaceutical companies are sitting on the European Commission (e.g., EU
commissar Bolkenstein) from where they are writing Europe's laws in the
interest of pharmaceutical companies and other economic interest groups. Say
to them: that's corruption!

- Ask them: who voted you into the European Parliament? As EU politicians,
was it the voters, the people of Europe to whom you are answerable or the
big multinationals?

- Insist that the MEPs allow a voice for the greatest peoples' movement in
Europe and the 400 million votes for natural health on 12th March. Demand
that Dr. Rath is not muzzled but is allowed, on behalf of humanity, to speak
in the European Parliament and officially inform the MEPs.

- Vote for the right to free access to natural therapies in Europe. For
more information go to the website There you can cast
your vote by clicking a mouse and send your protest to all the responsible
politicians. Vote before March 12th.

- Speak to friends and acquaintances about the breakthrough by vitamin
research and cellular medicine in the fight against cancer. For the first
time it is possible to combat the causes of cancer by natural means and with
no side effects. For further information go to Also draw their attention to Dr.
Rath's lecture series at the end of March (see box below).

- Tell your acquaintances about the connection between the progress of
vitamin research and the pharmaceutical industry's machinations to outlaw
this information via new muzzling laws, simply in order to protect their
billion-pound markets in pharmaceutical drugs.

12th March 2002 is an important date for the people of Europe. Do your bit
to see that the decisions made in the European Parliament on that day serve
our health interests rather than the pharmaceutical industry trade in
disease. Do it now.

Best wishes

Dr. Matthias Rath
