About Linus Pauling

Linus Pauling (February 28, 1901 – August 19, 1994) is considered by some to have been one of the greatest thinkers and visionaries of the millennium, along with Galileo, Newton, and Einstein. You may know him for his pioneering work with Vitamin C.

At the time of his death in 1994, Pauling held as many as 48 honorary Ph.D.s. Wikipedia reports, “Pauling is one of only four individuals to have won more than one Nobel Prize. He is one of only two people awarded Nobel Prizes in different fields (the Chemistry and Peace prizes), the other being Marie Curie (the Chemistry and Physics prizes), and the only person awarded two unshared (Nobel) prizes.”

I guess it would be safe to say Pauling was no dummy.

Yet, beginning when he and German MD and medical researcher, Matthias Rath, published their findings in 1992 – and continuing to this day — the pharmaceutical industry and some in the medical community have painted the two as quacks and charlatans, not to be believed. You see, their cure (and/or prevention) involves no patentable synthetic drugs.

Even more alarming, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a ruling after Pauling and Rath’s 1992 news conference; no longer could manufacturers of over-the-counter supplements make any claims as to health benefits of their products. There have been efforts, over the years and ongoing today, to bring all vitamins and supplements under strict FDA control. So far, Congress has refused.

So Pauling and Rath struck back. Six months before Pauling died (at age 93; prostate cancer), he and Dr. Rath were awarded U. S. Patent # 5,278,189, “A METHOD FOR THE PREVENTION AND TREATMENT OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE.”

That was Pauling’s parting gift to you, me and all mankind. You see, with that patent in place, Big Pharma can’t control access to this information. You and I are free to pursue our own prevention, reversal and cure for coronary artery disease. We don’t need them and their insidious chemical compounds.

Thank you, Linus Pauling!

For those who think perhaps Linus Pauling was senile or demented — or a quack — when he and Dr. Rath published their work and filed for their patent, here’s a video of Pauling in 1993, just a year before his death. See what you think.
