While pharmaceutical industry greed is demonstrably killing people not just in America but all over the world, reducing drug prices alone is not the answer. This is because rather than specifically treating the primary causes of disease – namely, micronutrient deficiencies – drugs only address the symptoms. What is therefore needed is a fundamental redesign of the global healthcare system in favor of science-based nutritional and Cellular Medicine approaches that focus on correcting the primary causes of disease.

Every senior pharmaceutical company executive realizes that eliminating the primary causes of diseases would destroy the global drug market – an extraordinarily lucrative business expected to be worth nearly $1.5 trillion in 2021. For this reason, recognizing the threat that vitamins and other non-patentable natural therapies pose to the future of the drug business, the pharmaceutical industry wants to see such therapies banned worldwide by law. Towards achieving this goal, along with its stakeholders in the mainstream media, medicine, and politics, the so-called ‘Codex Alimentarius Commission’ is one of the industry’s key international allies.
