Terminating the Business With Disease
This presentation was given by Dr. Alexandra Niedzwiecki to
the Hague Tribunal, 14th June 2003
Good Afternoon. We have come to The Hague from different countries ,
we are representing many nations, we live on different continents.
We came here today to speak out on behalf of our parents, our friends,
and our children who may have suffered or even died prematurely because
of an industry that has deceived us for decades.
This industry promises health, but it profits from maintaining and expanding
This industry builds its wealth at the expense of solutions to our health
:This industry turns a blind eye to our misery and allows us to die
if we do not have money to pay for its products. What industry is it?
This is the pharmaceutical industry.
And today, we are demanding that those responsible for expanding diseases
and contributing to the death of millions be brought to justice.
The pharmaceutical “business with disease” is built on our
health problems. Today it controls the health and lives of millions of
people by infiltrating various sectors of our society. It has close ties
to the media, science, business and politics. I am here to testify how
this business manipulates research and medicine at the expense of our
There is no other disease that generates as much fear as cancer. Despite
the decades of “war on cancer” and the billions of dollars
invested in research, we feel powerless when facing this disease. According
to the World Health Organization, about 10 million people die of cancer
every year. In the US alone, the total cost in relation to cancer exceeds
$180 billion annually. This is a scope of our misery but also a huge
Let’s take a closer look how this business protects itself by
using an example of the prestigious hospital and research institution,
such as Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. I have been
there on several occasions at the time when I did my research at the
Rockefeller University. They had very interesting scientific lectures
there. And at that time, like many of my colleagues, I did not think
much about who decides about research directions and programs and who
controls the fate of the patients.
It is the Rockefeller family who controls the policy and directions
at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering. An honorary co-chairman of the Boards
of Overseers and Managers is Laurence S. Rockefeller, great-grandson
of the deceased oil magnate John D. Rockefeller. The Board has also seated
another member of this family, James Rockefeller. The chairman of the
Board, Douglas Warner, takes care of financial aspects of cancer investment.
Mr Warner is the board member of the J.P. Morgan , the Rockefeller’s
bank. Therefore can be no doubt that financial and petrochemical investments
are indeed being protected.
Pharmaceutical interests at the Sloan-Kettering Center are also well
represented. A co-chairman of the board , James Robinson III, is also
the chairman and chief executive officer of the pharma-giant Bristol-Myers
Squibb. There is also Richard Gelb, who is the chairman of the board
at Bristol-Myers. This pharmaceutical company holds patents on more than
one dozen cancer drugs, and it accounts for almost half of all the chemotherapy
drug sales in the world. What better way to ensure protection of their
chemotherapy drug profits? Pfitzer, the largest drug producer in the
world, is also there represented by Dr. Paul Marks. He functions as the
president of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Center and also is a director of
The overall interests of the pharmaceutical industry are represented
by another Board member, Richard Furlaud, He is a former president of
Bristol-Myers Squibb, and now a director of the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers
Association. Any comments?
Now, you are not be surprised that under the leadership of these men,
Memorial Sloan- Kettering Cancer Center continues its aggressive pro-chemotherapy
stance and excludes almost all natural, non-toxic alternatives. These
facts are generally unknown to the average person who puts $10 or $20
in the envelope to help the “war against cancer,” they are
unknown to the patient who receives the drugs, and even to some of the
doctors who administer them.
You may think that Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is unaware of the advances
made in natural health. That is not the case.
:In the archives of Oregon State University you can find a letter that
was sent in 1987 by Linus Pauling to Dr. Paul Marks, President of the
Memorial Sloan-Kettering. Dr. Pauling, a two-time Nobel Laureate and
close associate of Dr. Rath, urged that, a clinical study be conducted
with vitamin C and cancer. What was the response? ..the answer is obvious.
Today this Center knows about Dr. Rath’s research with lysine and
other Cellular Health nutrients and their compelling results against
But cancer centers are not in there to open up their doors to cellular
health. In fact, the boards of directors of these institutions are there
so this does not happen. Careers and fortunes are built on promoting
and expanding the chemotherapeutic approach, and on extending the drug
markets that deal with its devastating side effects. The public must
be convinced that chemotherapy works, people should remain quiet and
leave the decisions to someone else.
Drugs are not meant to cure diseases. As one of the industry analyst
put frankly in his interview published this year in the International
“When conducting drug clinical trials, we are concerned about
two disasters: One disaster is that you kill people. The other disaster
is that you cure them. The truly good drugs are ones that you can use
for a long time…”
He is talking about our health and our lives!
How do millions of donors feel, people on low income who have been supporting
cancer research in hope to find cure for themselves, or their families??
Deceived? Robbed? Is this how they expected their donations would be
We are in The Hague to demand that those responsible for deceiving millions
of patients and undermining ethics of the medical profession to expand
their business with disease are brought to justice.
I am here to provide the evidence for their practices. Just a few examples:
1. How pharmaceutical industry promotes continuation and expansion of
Cancer is an example. We have been told that cancer is on a rise because
there are more elderly people in the population. And we should accept
this as a fact. However, growth of cancer is faster than we age.
There are known reasons for an increase in cancer: toxic pollutants
in our environment, the wider use of pharmaceutical drugs, which are
by their nature toxic to the body, and micronutrient deficiencies.
According to the National Institutes of Health, almost one half of drugs
commonly prescribed cause cancer. The most recent study data confirmed
that the use of estrogen alone contributed to a 65 percent increase in
breast cancer cases. And yet, the use of these drugs continues to expand.
It is an indisputable scientific fact that deficiencies of vitamins
and minerals damage cellular DNA in the same manner as radiation and
many toxic chemicals. The lack of vitamin C, B vitamins, and zinc cause
cancer more often than other risk factors. We know that more than half
of the population of industrialized countries does not receive even the
lowest requirements for these micronutrients.
These deficiencies are easy to overcome. Does the pharmaceutical industry
promote nutritional supplements? No! This would be an unwise business
practice. So instead, it abuses the European Parliament, Codex, and other
legislations to press for tougher laws to restrict our access to vitamins.
In this way, this industry ensures that cancer rates will not decrease
and the market for their products will grow.
2. Another example how pharmaceutical industry promotes diseases is
by expanding the unapproved use of its prescription drugs.
For this they have been exploiting the reputations of doctors and misleading
them into giving drugs to patients with health problems for which these
drugs have not been tested and approved. In the year 2000 alone, this
industry spent almost $8 billon for free drug samples to physicians.
Free drugs are given not for charity reasons. This tactic helps the pharmaceutical
industry to sell more drugs, but it also endangers the patient’s
: Here is an example of a group of drugs commonly prescribed for cardiovascular
conditions, such high blood pressure or irregular heartbeat. The most
commonly prescribed medication in this category is beta-blockers, which
are the oldest drugs on the market, followed by calcium channel blockers.
The newest and, therefore, most expensive ones are called an ACE inhibitors.
All these drugs have been approved for defined health conditions. However,
pharmaceutical marketers have been encouraging doctors to recommend these
drugs for a so called “off label” diseases.
Approximately 38 percent of beta-blockers are prescribed for unapproved
conditions, as are 47 percent of calcium channel blockers and 62 percent
of ACE inhibitors. The more liberal use of these drugs brings higher
risk of side effects and health complications. Of course, the newest
,most expensive drug, the ACE inhibitors, pose a risk of about 12 adverse
health problems per each application. These practices continue for other
drugs as well. Drug side effects are not a concern, because there are
other drugs to deal with such side effects.
3. : The pharmaceutical industry abuses the authority of the medical
profession by pressing for health guidelines with an intension of promoting
The most recent examples are the new guidelines for prescribing cholesterol-
lowering drugs and high blood pressure medication. Dr. Rath correctly
calls this scheme “ the road map for printing money,” since
the only motive behind it is increasing drug sales.
Two years ago, new guidelines were issued on healthy blood cholesterol
levels for the only purpose: boosting prescriptions for new statin drugs.
In just one day 23 million people were added as customers. Today, anyone
with an LDL cholesterol higher than 100 mg/dl will qualify to spend the
rest of his or her life on a statin prescription.
It does not matter that high cholesterol is not the cause, but the consequence
of heart disease. It is irrelevant that statin drugs increase cancer
risk, cause liver and heart damage, and that some of them were taken
off the market because patients died as a result of taking them. This
Last month, new guidelines were issued for prescribing drugs to lower
blood pressure. In 1990s, a blood pressure of 160/90 was considered normal.
Today, blood pressure higher than 115/75, requires a treatment. With
this trend, soon anyone with any measurable blood pressure will need
a drug. At the same time patients who take high blood pressure medications
do not know that these drugs are responsible for approximately 140 different
side effects and adverse reactions, ranging from insomnia to depression
to heart attack or cardiac arrest.
So what is a result of the decades-long monopoly of this industry? An
enormous growth of chronic diseases. Remember the quote..the best drugs
are those you have to take for a long, long time. Because of that, millions
of people die every year from heart disease, stroke, cancer and other
preventable diseases. In the US alone, about 4,000 people die every day
from diseases that could have been avoided. There is also a new epidemic – death
from prescription drugs, the fourth leading cause of death.
We have come to The Hague because we realize that heart disease, cancer,
diabetes, and many other have been artificially maintained as a market
for drugs. Today we know the causes of these diseases. These diseases
are largely caused by a lack of vitamins and other essential micronutrients,
they are the result of modern cellular malnutrition. I am here to show
the power and opportunities of new health discoveries in cellular medicine
for our health. By their logic and successful results they challenge
pharmaceutical business and unmasks its deceiving nature.
4. Cellular medicine proves that cancer can be beaten naturally. This
discovery was instrumental in showing that cancer has been abused as
a market for drugs.
Today, cancer is treated exclusively by chemotherapy and radiation.
These treatments damage both cancer cells and healthy cells. If the patient
does not die during the treatment itself, a so-called “toxic death,” the
body becomes so severely damaged that the patient requires other costly
treatments. Consequently, patients develop new cancers. This of course
contributes to more drug sales.
On this slide you can see some of the side effects of the chemotherapy
drug IFEX, manufactured by Bristol-Myers Squibb. I am sure this drug
is eagerly recommended by doctors at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer
These side effects were reported in a study published in the Journal
of Clinical Oncology. They included liver toxicity in 61 percent of patients;
ear damage in 81 percent of patients; kidney toxicity in 70 percent of
patients; adverse pulmonary events in 92 percent of patients; cardiotoxicity
in 94 percent of patients; eight percent of patients died of “toxic
death,” a term especially developed for death by chemotherapy.
And there were reported cases of coma and paralysis. But look what was
the conclusion of the study …
: …IFEX chemotherapy is well tolerated with acceptable side effects
and predictable organ toxicity. Can you believe it? Can you expect to
be cured by this treatment?
This drug is not an exception. There are special books printed telling
patients about side effects of chemotherapy.You can find a description
of them on more than 200 pages of books, like this one. .
I am sure you’ve heard many success stories about the effectiveness
of chemotherapy. Here are some facts taken from the Wall Street Journal:
The effectiveness of chemotherapy in breast cancer: 90 percent of women
who do not undergo chemotherapy survive for 10 years. The survival odds
of women who undergo traumatic chemotherapy are a mere two percent higher.
Are you surprised? Can you imagine life devastated by this treatment?
What about other diseases that made you seriously ill? What about the
financial burden of paying medical bills for years?
; Here are the chances for a disease-free survival for many cancers
taken from one of the textbooks of medicine. You can’t call it “ progress” accomplished
by 30 years long “war on cancer”?
There is only one conclusion we can draw from the decades-long continuation
of chemotherapy and radiation treatments. The biggest obstacle to curing
cancer is the scope of/ business that drug companies created for their
patented products. In one year their cancer drug sales exceed $100billion.
The change can come only with cellular medicine.
Conventional drug-based medicine has ignored the fact that 90 percent
of deaths from cancer is caused by metastasis, the spread of cancer.
Cellular medicine targets precisely this process in a complex way.
Based on Dr. Rath’s scientific discovery and our research we know
that we can stop the growth and spread of cancer naturally at the following
1. Nutrients can block the enzymes that cancer cells use to degrade
connective tissue, which means the growth and spread of cancer can be
2. Nutrients can kill cancer cells without destroying healthy cells.
3. Nutrients can help starve a tumor by restricting blood flow to it.
As of today, we tested more than 10 different types of cancers. In each
case, we have shown that the invasion of cancer cells can be blocked
by cellular nutrients. These nutrients include vitamin C, the amino acids
lysine and proline, a green tea extract and several other micronutrients.
These studies, which first we conducted directly on cancer cells, now
we have confirmed in the entire organism.
We tested whether nutrients could restrict the growth of tumors in the
body and, particularly, in a situation when the immune system is damaged
and cannot help to fight the cancer. This mimicks a situation in a cancer
patient whose immune system had been destroyed by chemotherapy and radiation.
We are fully aware that animal experiments should be kept to an absolute
minimum for ethical reasons. However, there are breakthroughs being made
in medicine that can save thousands or even millions of lives. This is
the situation with our natural cancer treatment. For this breakthrough
to be accepted by conventional medicine, it must be confirmed with such
We conducted this experiment with a special type of mice with impaired
immune systems. Unlike their normal cousins, these animals are prone
to cancer and grow tumors very fast. We measured the growth of melanoma
, colon and prostate tumors in these mice. One group of mice was fed
normal diets and the other group received the same diets that had been
enriched with vitamin C, lysine, and other cellular nutrients. Just after
three weeks, it had become evident that all tumors were significantly
smaller in mice who ate diets enriched with cellular nutrients. Size
of melanoma and prostate tumors was reduced by half, and colon tumors
were reduced by as much as 70 percent. Remember, these results were achieved
in the body without normal immune system function. This confirms that
even when the immune system is destroyed, nutrients are so powerful that
they can still curb tumor expansion.
Nutrients can also fight cancer directly as selective chemotherapy agents,
they should be called biotherapy agents. They can destroy cancer cells
without damaging healthy cells.
This study graph shows that cancer cells can be destroyed by various
nutrients by 40-80 percent while healthy cells in the body continue to
function normally. Currently, we are testing more natural substances
for this effect.
We can also use nutrients to stop the formation of new blood vessels.
When new blood vessels grow in a tumor it not a good sign because they
help feed cancer. Today there are no drugs that can stop this process..
But look how nutrients can help.
New blood vessels are composed of endothelial cells, which move through
the tissue and combine in a shape of a tube, forming a new blood vessel;
therefore, the migration of cells is important. These cells move in response
to a signal coming from small molecules called vascular growth factors.
We tested whether our cellular nutrient combination could decrease cell
migration and the secretion of vascular growth factors.
: This data confirms that nutrients can do just that. The migration
of cancer cells was decreased by 62 percent using a combination of vitamin
C, lysine, proline and other essential nutrients.
In addition, the secretion of vascular growth factors was decreased.
This means that nutrients can prevent the formation of new blood vessels
that feed tumors. Cellular medicine can help in all stages of cancer.
We know already that this approach is successful in a variety of cancers.
Starting from adrenal tumors to testicular cancer. And there is no miracle
in it. All cancers use the same mechanism to grow and spread in the body.
And we found nutrients that can control this mechanism effectively and
This is why they are effective in fighting brain and prostate cancers.
They are effective for lung and bone and many other cancers. And we
can provide clinical documentation for all these cases.
Today, you can meet with many former cancer patients who successfully
defeated their disease. They came to The Hague to share with you and
the world that cellular medicine has helped them to regain health and
lead normal lives. Some, like Mr. Ansel, have even flown from the U.S.
to be with us. We welcome all these courageous people.
Cancer is not the only example that illustrates how diseases can be
artificially maintained to serve as markets for pharmaceutical drugs.
Today, we know that many forms of cardiovascular diseases can be controlled
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the industrialized
world. In 2000, total sales of drugs for high blood pressure, angina
and other problems approached $52 billion. This industry does not expect
that heart disease will be cured soon because it has projected that their
sales of drugs will reach $76.5 billion in 2005.
The only way how this drug market can be maintained is by suppressing
information about Dr. Rath’s breakthrough discoveries in heart
disease and by controlling people access to effective non-patentable
essential nutrients. The industry knows that these nutrients can effectively
prevent and treat heart disease.
We have clinical proof that cellular medicine is effective in many forms
of cardiovascular disease. It can reduce and even reverse cardiovascular
deposits, the main cause of heart attacks and strokes. It can lower high
blood pressure safely and effectively, decrease blood sugar levels in
diabetics and improve other cardiovascular-related conditions.
Most recently, we confirmed the effectiveness of cellular medicine in
such dangerous health condition as arrhythmia. Millions of people suffer
from this problem. The reason why this disease continues is because drug-based
medicine does not accept the true cause of irregular heartbeat. Moreover,
it promotes drugs that are dangerous and many cause arrhythmia itself
as a side effects.
Arrhythmia develops when the heart muscle cells responsible for regulating
heart rhythm begin to malfunction. The result is a disturbance in the
generation and conduction of electrical impulses, which causes chaotic
contraction of the heart. This is a dangerous situation because it can
cause a sudden death.
The reason why arrhythmia develops is very simple. When heart cells
starve for bioenergy generating nutrients, such as coenzyme Q10, carnitine
and vitamin C, they cannot function and electrical impulses triggering
heart beat are not send in rhythmical manner. So replenishment of these
nutrients should be the first step in prevention of this condition.
We conducted a clinical study with cellular health nutrients in 131
patients suffering from arrhythmia. This was a double-blind placebo-controlled
study. In this kind of study, patients are randomly assigned to take
vitamins or a placebo, which is a sugar pill. Also, neither the patients
nor the doctors know who receives the treatment and who receives the
The results showed that after six months, patients who took cellular
nutrient program experienced less arrhythmia attacks. About one-third
more patients on vitamins improved compared to those taking a placebo.
The improvements were noted in patients after just three months on the
vitamin program, and results were even better after six months, when
43% of patients experienced less arrhythmic episodes. It is evident that
health benefits increase with longer use of vitamins.
We also observed that approximately three times more patients who took
vitamins , which was 16%, were completely free of arrhythmia compared
to patients in the group that did not take vitamins, only 6%. All these
results were statistically significant, which means that the chance of
repeating these results is very high.
What was especially important was the observation that the general health
of patients on the vitamins had improved, especially mental heath aspects,
such as less cases of depression. At the same time, the health of people
not taking vitamins deteriorated.
But how many patients know about the results of this study? We submitted
this study to a medical journal for rapid publication, but we were told
that there is non reason to rush. They told us to wait for the standard
review process, for about 2 months. So we are waiting, and patients who
do not know about this study are waiting also, while taking beta-blockers,
calcium channel blockers, and other medications. This market must be
protected at all costs. This is why there is no rush to publish the positive
results of vitamin studies.
But you can change that.
Another example of an artificially maintained market that is threatened
by cellular medicine is heart failure.
Millions of people suffer from heart failure, edema and severe fatigue.
Is it possible that thousands of researchers and doctors cannot find
the cause of heart failure? It seems unbelievable.
The heart muscle is a unique organ because it is a continuously working
pump and because of that it needs lots of biological energy. The most
frequent cause of heart muscle weakness is a lack of energy in the heart
muscle cells. When heart weakens, blood circulation slows down and water
accumulates in the body. So what doctors do? Give you vitamins to increase
cellular bioenergy? Of course not. They prescribe diuretics to flush
out water from the body. But together with water also vitamins and minerals
are removed, so the patients condition actually get worse, not better.
Today, millions of heart failure patients are treated with drugs that
worsen their condition to a point where they need a heart transplant.
Many patients die while waiting for a new heart.
However, the only effective way to treating heart failure is to ensure
that the heart cells receive an optimum supply of vitamins and bioenergy
Our clinical study confirms that patients can benefit from the simple
measure of vitamin supplementation. Patients in our study had different
stages of a disease classified according to the New York Heart Association
scale. At Stage Two, they can perform normal daily activities with difficulty
or pain and at Stage Four, they are mainly confined to bed. In 70 percent
of patients who took vitamins, heart conditions were improved. It is
interesting that patients who did not improve during this six-month study
were patients who did not take vitamins.
This cartoon illustrates a nonsense of pharma-built conventional medicine.
If you are heart failure patient, show it to your doctor and explain
to him that you don’t need a new motor, or heart, in your body,
you just need more fuel. That fuel comes in the form of vitamins and
other nutrients that can improve the function of your motor, or heart.
Tell your doctor this, and insist that he or she learns about vitamins
from Dr Rath.
What I have shared with you today represents just a fraction of the
research progress made by our small group of scientists. These results
indicate what could have been accomplished in natural health research
if it had not been suppressed for decades by the pharmaceutical industry.
We have come to The Hague to stop the unnecessary deaths of millions
of people from diseases that can be controlled with natural, safe and
At the end I want to mention another reason why we are here, in the
Hague. It is because of Dr. Rath. He has provided his discoveries so
that we can start building our health. He has taken the responsibility
to lead us in demanding our right to health, to a life of dignity and
self-respect and to a just and peaceful world. We are gathered here today
because one man, Dr. Rath, has shown courage and perseverance in speaking
the truth about natural health, about cellular medicine, and about peace
so that each and every one of us will be empowered to build a healthy
and peaceful world for our generation and for generations to come.
We are here to thank Dr. Rath for his commitment and leadership in building
the future of our health.
