The world has certainly changed a lot since we launched our original Dr. Rath Health Foundation website back in 2002. For one thing, websites in those days were far simpler affairs. They had to be, of course, as average download speeds were much slower than they are today. But between 2002 and 2018, along with increasingly faster connection speeds, the number of websites on the internet rose spectacularly from around 38 million to more than 1.3 billion. Similarly, the number of people online grew from about 558 million (approx. 9 percent of the global population in 2002) to over 4 billion (around 53 percent of the global population today). As a direct result of this communications explosion, public awareness of the power of nutritional and Cellular Medicine approaches has dramatically increased.
Another important change since 2002 is that there are now many more outspoken critics of the drug industry than there were back then. In the early days of the web, the facts about the fraudulent nature of the pharmaceutical ‘business with disease’ weren’t easy to find. But over the past decade and a half, knowledge about the dangers and ineffectiveness of drug-based medicine has been spreading increasingly rapidly. As a result, public criticism of the pharma industry is now commonplace. Without doubt, the internet is empowering ever larger numbers of people to reject drug approaches and choose natural ones instead.
Since 2002, our Foundation website has reached millions of people worldwide. As a direct result of learning about Dr. Rath’s scientific discoveries, large numbers of our web visitors have successfully been able to improve or regain their health. We know from their feedback that many of these people would not be alive today had they not come across our work. But in today’s world, with its 24-hour news cycle and the fact that people want to access the latest health and health politics news as quickly and easily as possible, we realized that a thorough redesign of our website was necessary.
In designing our new website, our overriding goal was to make it as easy as possible for you to navigate your way around it. To enable this, the material on the site can now be accessed in a variety of different ways. The possibilities include clicking on:
Also, the website is now fully smartphone- and tablet-friendly. So whatever type of device you use to access it, and however you choose to navigate your way around it, we’re confident that you will quickly and easily be able to find what you are looking for.
Finally, our new website also differs from the old site in another important way: it is secured with SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption. This means that, when you are using the site, all data passing between our web server and your computer or smartphone is encrypted and cannot be seen by any third party. You can check that our site is secured in this way by looking for the https prefix at the start of the web address. You should also see a green padlock icon on the left-hand side of the web address in your browser.
It’s been a lot of work putting it all together, and we’re looking forward to your feedback. So, on behalf of Dr. Rath, Dr. Niedzwiecki, and all of our team at the Dr. Rath Health Foundation, welcome to the next generation of our website. The next stage of our journey towards a preventive system of healthcare starts here!
