Some eye-opening analysis quoted from the report "Berlin Tribunal" at this page: http://www.rath.nl/GB/hot1.htm
Throughout the 20th century the pharmaceutical industry was built and organized with the goal to control the health care system of nations by systematically replacing natural, non-patentable therapies with patentable and therefore profitable synthetic drugs. The architects of the pharmaceutical industry were unscrupulous entrepreneurs and financiers who, from the very beginning of this industry, had defined the human body and the diseases it hosts as their marketplace.
As the result of the systematic take-over of the health care system by nationally and internationally operating pharmaceutical corporations billions of people in almost all countries of the United Nations have been paying trillions of dollars for pharmaceutical drugs that neither prevent diseases nor cure them. The governments, the economic and social sectors of all industrialized countries are currently held hostage by the ill-conceived and criminal practices of pharmaceutical corporations.
A particular example is the Federal Republic of Germany, the leading export nation of such pharmaceutical products in the world. Throughout the 20 th century, the German pharmaceutical corporations Hoechst, Bayer and BASF have determined the fate not only of that country but of the entire world. In an effort to control the global chemical and pharmaceutical markets, these corporations formed the IG Farben Cartel already at the beginning of this century, sponsored the rise of Hitler to power and were the driving economic force behind the Second World War and Hitler's effort to conquer the world. Hoechst, Bayer and BASF were the organizers of the giant industrial plant IG Auschwitz using as their forced labor camp the Concentration Camp Auschwitz, the largest crime site of human history.
At the 1947 Nuremberg Tribunal 24 of the managers of Hoechst, Bayer and BASF and other IG Farben executives were accused of the following crimes against humanity:
planning and leading the war
conducting criminal experiments on
innocent inmates of concentration camps
grand theft and plundering
slavery and other crimes.
The US lead prosecutor Telford Taylor said in the Nuremberg Tribunal against these IG Farben executives: "Not the Nazi lunatics but these accused are responsible for this war. And if they are not punished for these crimes the harm they will do to future generations is much greater than Hitler could ever have done if he were alive."
The IG Farben Cartel was dismantled and split by the Nuremberg Tribunal into the daughter companies Hoechst, Bayer and BASF. With the help of Nelson Rockefeller, their former business partner and US Undersecretary of State after the war, all convicted IG Farben managers were released from prison already in 1952 and reassumed positions in the highest levels of German industry.
The prediction of Nuremberg Tribunal prosecutor Taylor soon became true. In post-war Germany the positions of chairmen of Hoechst, Bayer and BASF were held by war-time IG Farben directors and former members of the Nazi party for over a quarter of a century after the second world war.
Hoechst, Bayer and BASF lost no time to build up other political leaders to serve their interests in post-war Germany. Between 1959 and 1969 Helmut Kohl worked for the "Verband der Chemischen Industrie" (Association of Chemical Industry), the largest lobby organization of the chemical-pharmaceutical industry. This industry systematically promoted Helmut Kohl’s political career thereby continuing to instrumentalize the German government for their global expansion plans. And their investment paid out. Now, fifty years after the Nuremberg Tribunal split the criminal IG Farben Cartel into Hoechst, Bayer and BASF each of these three daughter companies is 20 times larger than the IG Farben empire ever was. Today, these IG Farben successors are the largest exporters of pharmaceutical products in the world, maintaining an industrial network over 120 countries of the world.
For almost two decades, Helmut Kohl has been heading the German government. During this time the government of Germany became the political spearhead of the global conquest of the pharmaceutical industry and of the world-wide genocide and mass murder committed on their behalf. The criminal role of the pharmaceutical corporations and the German government becomes particularly evident by the effort to suppress one of the greatest advances in medicine, which will lead to the elimination of heart disease. ...
The discovery that vitamins and other essential nutrients are the answer to the most common health problems of our time marked not only a turning point in medicine but it immediately threatened the very existence of the pharmaceutical industry.
The global pharmaceutical market of cardiovascular drugs alone is in excess of several hundred million dollars every year and the single largest segment of the global drug market. In order to artificially stabilize their global pharmaceutical drug market the pharmaceutical corporations now formed an international Pharma- This Pharma-Cartel organizes a global campaign to systematically obstruct, suppress the dissemination of the life-saving information of this medical breakthrough and to publicly discredit the health benefits of vitamins and other natural remedies.
Between 1991 and 1994 and as a direct reaction to Dr. Rath's discoveries, the Pharma-Cartel tried to make vitamins and other essential nutrients prescription drugs in the US, their single largest national market. The pretenses under which the Pharma- promoted their legislative plan, "consumer protection" from non-existing side-effects and "international harmonization" to adapt inadequately low daily nutritional recommendations, were false and deceptive. However the statistical facts uncovered the deception of the Pharma-Cartel and showed that in the last ten years no American had died from side effects of vitamins and other essential nutrients. Supported by millions of Americans, US Congress unanimously passed the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, which secured unrestricted access to nutritional supplements.
