World Health Organization’s First Traditional Medicine Summit Splits Opinions

There are good reasons to be skeptical that the World Health Organization (WHO) will take a truly science-based approach to traditional medicine. Not least of these is the hundreds of millions of dollars donated to it every year by the pro-pharma Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Along with sizeable sums given by drug and chemical companies, such donations buy a lot of lobbying influence at the WHO’s top table.

Because traditional medicine therapies are generally not patentable, their availability is seen by the makers of patented drugs and vaccines – and their investors – as an existential threat. It is therefore unthinkable that, having accepted donations from pharma-related sources, the WHO would promote anything that was not in their interests.

Proof of this can be seen in the WHO’s ongoing financial support for the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CODEX), a United Nations body. In recent years this has resulted in the creation of restrictive global guidelines on the production and sale of vitamin and mineral supplements, the weakening of international standards for organic foods, and support for the use of pesticides. Like the WHO itself, CODEX has close links to the drug and chemical industries, whose representatives regularly attend its meetings.
