The Codex Alimentarius is a threat to the freedom of people to choose natural healing and alternative medicine and nutrition. Ratified by the World Health Organization, and going into Law in the United States in 2009, the threat to health freedom has never been greater. This is the first part of a series of talks by Dr. Rima Laibow MD, available on DVD from the Natural Solutions Foundation, an non-profit organization dedicated to educating people about how to stop Codex Alimentarius from taking away our right to freely choose nutritional health

Prescription for Disaster is an in-depth investigation into the symbiotic relationships between the pharmaceutical industry, the FDA, lobbyists, lawmakers, medical schools, and researchers, and the impact this has on consumers and their health care. During this thorough investigation, we take a close look at patented drugs, why they are so readily prescribed by doctors, the role insurance companies and HMO's play in promoting compliance, and the problem of rising health care costs. We examine the marketing and public relations efforts on behalf of the pharmaceutical companies, including sales reps, medical journals and conferences. Further, we look at alternatives to traditional pharmacology and drug therapy, such as vitamins and nutritional supplements, and why they are often perceived as a competitive threat to the drug manufacturers. Alternative therapies also include diet, exercise and a healthy lifestyle.

Prescription for Disaster takes you on a journey through the tangled web of big business, the way disease is treated today, and the consequences we suffer as a society.

Excellent documentary showing how dangerous artificial sweetner Aspartame is. From its history, to its effects this video is enough to shock anyone into really looking at there food labels next time they shop. Aspartame is a toxic food that came into the world as an investment By Donald Rumsfeld, while ignoring the deadly effects the tests showed. Take a good look at this video, it could save lives.

In this video, Christopher Bryson, an award-winning journalist and former producer at the BBC, discusses the findings of his new book The Flouride Deception.

EARLY REVIEWS of The Fluoride Deception:

"Bryson marshals an impressive amount of research to demonstrate fluoride?s harmfulness, the ties between leading fluoride researchers and the corporations who funded and benefited from their research, and what he says is the duplicity with which fluoridation was sold to the people. The result is a compelling challenge to the reigning dental orthodoxy, which should provoke renewed scientific scrutiny and public debate."

Dr Malcolm Kendrick speaks about
World Health Organisation data

From the EU Monica WHO data I took all data on fat intake and CHD rate from virtually all European countries for1998-1999
The data was then regressed using Quattro Pro. The regression line was drawn using the results. Both analyses show that doubling the national fat intake reduces the national Coronary Heart Disease rate by half!
Total Fat (%of diet)
Multiple R 0.667; Regression "p" = 5.43 E-07
Saturated Fat Intake (%of diet)
Multiple R = 0.584; Regression = "p" < 0.00001

Elevated Cholesterol does not actually cause heart disease; excess levels of cholesterol in the blood can complicate an existing cardiovascular condition. For this reason millions take statin drugs and risk the potential side effects to their liver. Alternatives to statins have come along way and now Natural Alternatives are as good or better that the leading statin drugs. Guggulipids, Pantethine, phytosterols, and many fibers in the right combination have proven to be as effective as dangerous statin drugs. Clinical Studies have proven that the right combination of Guggulipids, Pantethine, phytosterols, and many fibers can normalize elevated cholesterol levels in as little as 90 days. Ratios of HDL and LDL can be improved by making simple changes to your diet. Ideally, cholesterol levels within reason are not as important as proper HDL to LDL ratios. Elevated cholesterol can be reduced significantly, up to 20 points or more, in about 90 days. Low fat diets and cholesterol have very little to do with each other. The body makes up to 80 percent of all the cholesterol in your body while the rest comes from dietary intake. Since cholesterol in the diet makes up such a small amount of the total cholesterol in the body, low cholesterol diets are often ineffective in controlling the elevation. Elevated cholesterol is a liver problem and must be approached by detoxifying the liver and nourishing it with key nutrients such as Guggulipids, Pantethine, phytosterols, fiber. Lecithin is another agent that is very helpful for liver function and as such can help to regulate cholesterol in the bloodstream The formula we have developed here at The Institute of Nutritional Science not only helps to lower cholesterol safely without the dangers of statins, but we can also improve the HDL and LDL ratios at the same time.

Six McDonalds-munching Americans eat 100% vegan live foods for a month. Medical results are fantastic. Doctors and experts are interviewed including Gabriel Cousens, MD and David Wolfe. Raw for 30-Days

Raw for 30-Days will document the journey of five Americans suffering from Adult Onset Type II Diabetes, who undergo a radical 30-day diet and lifestyle change in the hope of reversing or reducing their insulin dependence. The film will show the eating habits that led to the development of this disease and will posit an alternative approach to living and eating, one in which foods can heal and hold the potential to reverse Diabetes. We will recruit subjects who have been subsisting on a standard American junk food diet and who are now insulin dependent and Diabetic. Those selected will journey to the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Arizona to undergo a 30-day health regimen consisting of 100% raw organic living foods that are purported to heal Diabetes. We will select a diverse group of subjects, representative of the different segments of the population most affected by this epidemic. Examples include a Native American from a Reservation, an African American from an urban Northeast city, a Mexican American living in the western US and a Caucasian person from the mid-west or a Southern city such as Chattanooga, TN

Neal Barnard MD discusses the science behind food additions. Willpower is not to blame: chocolate, cheese, meat, and sugar release opiate-like substances. Dr. Barnard also discusses how industry, aided by government, exploits these natural cravings, pushing us to eat more and more unhealthy foods. A plant-based (vegan) diet is the solution to avoid many of these problems. Neal Barnard is the founder of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM)
