Worldwide vitamin and mineral deficiencies will continue until 2050 unless nutritionally rich foods are made more available and affordable, according to new research led by the University of Illinois.
Conventional medicine preaches that vitamin and mineral deficiencies are rare in industrialized countries and that they are only a problem in the developing world. Unfortunately, this is far from the truth. In fact, as Dr. Rath’s Cellular Medicine concept explains, micronutrient deficiencies are the primary cause of chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer that kill millions of people worldwide.
Illustrating the scale of the problem, a scientific analysis published in 2014 found that large portions of the American population have an insufficient intake of essential vitamins and minerals. Research conducted in other Western countries indicates a similarly inadequate intake. The ongoing rise in chronic diseases in these countries is a direct result of this.
What makes this situation even worse is that global authorities have been fully aware of it for years. As the ‘World Health Organization documents’ page on our website shows, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) have both previously published material documenting the paramount importance of micronutrients and nutrition in maintaining optimum health.
However, it is no coincidence that knowledge about the lifesaving properties of micronutrients is increasingly being ignored, hidden, and even obstructed by these global authorities. Over the past 30 years, for example, hardly any relevant programs in the area of natural health and nutrition have been promoted by the WHO. This has happened in the interests of, and on behalf of, the growing influence of the pharmaceutical investment ‘business with disease’. Over the past decades, this influence has extended to the control of medical schools, the media, and politicians worldwide.
If like us you are convinced that it is time for change, please feel free to contact us. We will be happy to talk with you about working together to spread knowledge about nutritional and Cellular Medicine approaches where you live. Our Foundation firmly believes that if we work together, micronutrient deficiencies can be eradicated long before 2050.
