In this video interview Dr. Matthias Rath describes how, over the past 30 years, the death rate from heart attacks has fallen dramatically in many countries. In some places, such as Germany, the number of deaths has been cut in half. In the Netherlands, it has plummeted by two thirds. As a result, tens of millions of lives worldwide have been saved. In this important interview, Dr. Rath explains the reasons behind this dramatic development and describes how the goal of eliminating heart disease as a major cause of death and disability is now in sight.

What is the reason for this dramatic development? 1:33 With so many other health concerns in the world, why do you think the prevention of cardiovascular disease should be given a priority in global healthcare? 3:22 Tell us about Dr. Pauling. How did you come to work with him? 4:40 What was the significance of the discoveries you published with Linus Pauling? 8:20 How have these discoveries been influencing our understanding of cardiovascular disease? 14:55 What you are saying is that high cholesterol levels are not the main cause for heart attacks and strokes, but rather vitamin deficiency is? 18:45 How did the international community of cardiologists react to your discoveries? 20:31 You also issued a call, together with Dr. Pauling, for an international effort towards the control of cardiovascular disease. 22:57 What happened with this effort? 30:51 Did this explosion of knowledge about the beneficial role of certain vitamins actually help to reduce heart attacks and strokes in the world? 35:06 Why do you think there is some reluctance in accepting this logical understanding by the medical community? 37:09 What you are really advocating is a public health program focusing on prevention. What does the World Health Organization say about such a preventive public health program? 38:17 What role does public health education play on the way to preventive health care? 40:29 Recently you raised your voice about the pharmaceutical investment business and its threat to world peace. What is the background of your warning? 43:52 Are you saying that the build-up of preventive health care is a contribution to world peace?
