One of my readers was so inspired after reading part 1 of this article that she sent me a message thanking me for it and telling me how intrigued she was to see what I was going to write in part 2. I thought it was quite funny.

If you read part 1 of this blog post, you’ll see I talk a lot about my mother’s story of recovery from cancer and how she managed to completely heal herself from leukaemia by changing her diet to raw foods and adopting other healthy lifestyle habits.

The question I ask is: why don’t we see stories like my mother’s reported in the news more often? And not only like my mother’s, but also the thousands of cases of people all around the world that have overcome deadly diseases by adopting natural health habits instead of following the traditional medical advice of taking harmful drugs and going through toxic treatments?

I guess we know the answer to this question: overcoming diseases by changing your diet doesn’t make money, neither for the pharmaceutical industry, the medical profession, or the food industry.

So what do you think rules the world? Truth? Logic? Common sense? Nope! It’s money that rules the world.

I vividly remember watching BBC News in London on a rare occasion where a woman was invited on the news to talk about how she also overcame cancer with diet. And after telling her story… she asked the newsperson the same question I am asking: why don’t we see cases of cancer recovery like mine more often shown on the news? The BBC journalist kept silent and didn’t answer the question.

Sadly, the scandal doesn’t end there.

The fact of the matter is that we know the causes of most diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, and hundreds of other ailments affecting human beings, and it still seems the right answer isn’t getting through to the majority of the population. Why is that?

I was a DJ. A music producer. A normal person just like you. How did I manage to overcome atherosclerosis, lower back pain, depression, multiple addictions, gum disease, ear infections, and many other ailments I had suffered from for so many years, not through medicine, but instead simply changing my diet to raw foods and adopting some natural health habits?

The photo on the left was taken when my weight was 84 kilos (185 lb) and I was suffering from atherosclerosis, lower back pain, depression, gum disease, ear infections, and multiple addictions among many other ailments. The photo on the right was taken a few months later, after adopting a raw vegan diet and being cleared of disease. My current weigh is 67 Kilos (145 lb).

Obviously, the right solution is out there, and should be easily accessible for everyone else to do the same; but somehow the right information is not reaching the majority of the public.

What are the forces that are keeping the facts and the truths suppressed?

I was so intrigued by this dilemma that, after studying natural health for 6 years, I decided to research politics and communication to see what I could find, and what I found shocked me.

Someone once said: money doesn’t affect every issue in politics but it affects most of them. If you want to understand politics and know why things happen the way they do, there is a saying that goes: follow the money.

In my book, Health For Life I write: Healthy people doesn’t make money, sick people do. Doctors, hospitals, drug companies, and insurance companies benefit from sickness, and all the financial incentives point towards sickness.

In the USA, the FDA supports its constituency, which is the food industry, and not the public. Similar criteria apply for the food standards agency in the UK, and all food governing departments of most countries in the world.

Eating a raw vegan diet, along with other healthy activities, makes people a lot healthier, which in turn, means the world would end up with a rather unprofitable health system.

The biggest global industry in the world, the food industry, is not even remotely interested in the state of your health, and it is only there to make money.

Arguably the most important intellectual person alive, Professor Noam Chomsky, asserts that America has a system of indoctrination, including a system of propaganda, imposed largely by media.

In essence and for the most part, the press only gives you the news their ownership want you to know.

Healing cancer naturally by changing your diet doesn’t make money for anybody. Don’t even bother consulting your doctor about this; doctors don’t study nutrition.

‘Ariel, what about “qualified” dieticians and nutritionists?’ You may ask. Do they know how to heal cancer and other diseases through diet?

Most of them don’t, because the indoctrination system not only affects the media, it affects schools and universities.

The late US president, Dwight D. Eisenhower, was quoted as saying, “When a university accepts a large federal allocation of funds, a university ceased to be free, where you should have free inquiries and so on…”

This explains why, in my experience, you can’t fully trust the practices of the so called “professionals” of health such as doctors and dieticians, along with others when it comes to matters of health, without your actions being first backed up and guided by your own independent research.

And this is the reason why I studied health and nutrition independently.

And, in case you feel this is conspiracy theory of some sort? Fear not, it is in the real world of deceit, profits, and greed we all live. Or as the great late American author, Gore Vidal, once said, “apparently, `conspiracy stuff’ is now shorthand for unspeakable truth.”

The purpose of this article is not to suggest that your family doctor is hiding anything from you, because he is not.

The core of the issue is something that started over 100 years ago. The monopoly that medicine has on health focuses on spending money investing in fighting ‘symptoms’ and creating new drugs and diseases instead of tackling the real cause of most health problems: faulty education and practicing effective prevention.

I do believe that taking medicine in certain cases is advisable, and even beneficial, but the majority of our health issues can start being solved by eating the correct diet.

Eating the standard western diet is an abomination. It’s like living in the dark ages of nutrition. It’s slowly killing you and it’s killing our planet. It’s unsustainable.

And then comes the other important question: Why does the general public not agree on which diet is the best diet for humans? I mean for all humans, since, just like the rest of animals, we are all meant to eat the same diet. Aren’t we?

Have you seen some lions eating meat and other lions eating bananas and apples by any chance? Of course not, all lions are carnivorous. Correct?

Our anatomy and physiology tell us we are frugivorous. This is not an open debate. This is fact. If you are in doubt, read some biology books.

In fact, nutrition is no science. Do you ever ask yourself why wild animals are never overweight or underweight?

And just to clarify, the term ‘wild animals’ refers to species that live in a natural, undomesticated state and environment.

For instance: have you ever seen an overweight giraffe, an overweight tiger, or an obese crocodile? The answer is no, because the only species on the planet that have weight problems are humans, and the domesticated animals whose eating habits we control, such as dogs and cats.

Wild animals don’t experience considerable weight fluctuations because they eat according to their “instincts”, and not logic or intelligence. They are not blinded by commerce either.

We cannot separate human beings from any other biological system.  In order to understand how your body works, and to succeed with your diet and your health, you need to study Nature. And it’s less complicated that you may think, or as Galileo famously quoted: “Nature is simple”.

But you need to make an effort to learn. Watching a few videos by some health “gurus” on YouTube won’t do the trick; you need to read some literature.

Mother Nature doesn’t provide all the answers in a silver platter, but at least (and unlike men) she does not go out of her way to set up barriers to understanding.

I often explain to people that part of learning consists of the “undoing“ of the brainwashing we have received since birth, or as I call it: “counter-brainwashing”.

It’s much easier and profitable to spread the message of “reinforcement” than telling people what they are doing is wrong.

If I wanted to make lots of money in this field, I wouldn’t be writing books on natural health. I’d be promoting a Paleo diet and writing a book about the benefits of eating bacon, and it would sell by the millions.

The majority of the public are terribly ignorant. They don’t read books, or even newspapers, so they believe what they are being told, which works great for economics interest that rule the world.

Privilege and power doesn’t want people to think, because then they can’t react.

As the late, great British politician, Tony Benn once said, “an educated, healthy, and confident nation is harder to govern.”

Most people in our society are so ill formed and brainwashed that they refer to everything outside the reach of medicine and whatever they cannot explain as “pseudoscience”.

They are the same people dying of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and thousands of other preventable diseases! Why are they telling me, and other like-minded healthy people, what food we should be eating?

And these are the same people that still believe in the illusion you can get “healthy” by taking pharmaceutical drugs. It’s a lazy way of thinking, is it? It’s much easier to stuff any crap in your mouth and expect a magic pill to solve all your problems, right? Well… The stupidity of human beings I call it.

And then there are the people that don’t want to hear the truth, especially if they have been indoctrinated into a belief system that upholds their way of life, no matter how wrong their actions may be. And so they take special pleasure in bringing everyone else down with them, as it makes them feel less guilty about their own food habits. A bit like drug use.

I believe the two biggest diseases in the world are greed and ignorance.

The worst thing I can think of is dying in ignorance. That’s why I treasured all the years I spent studying natural health. It has been the most rewarding and enjoyable time of my life.


Studying biology and natural health sciences is not about what you cover, but what you “discover”. It is real learning. An enlightened style of learning.

When we see the world around us and how fast it is moving, we often feel powerless to change things, but the biggest change of all is changing yourself, so you can lead others by example.

The improved quality of life and health benefits from eating a raw diet are enormous, but there is also an economic factor that comes into account.

In a previous post I told the story about how I overcame my long term addiction to painkillers. It turned I ended up saying tons of money in the process.

I calculated that since I started this diet and lifestyle, I have saved $25 a day on food and other health related expenses.

And you know what? I love the fact I am depriving pharmaceutical companies, junk food industries, health insurance companies, and many other leaches and pollutants of our health system of their beloved cash.

And you’ll love it too if you start saving money on those expenses, because you‘ll be hurting those folks where it hurts the most.

And not only that but by adopting a plant based diet, you’d be doing the most responsible act, which is protecting the environment and safeguarding the planet for future generations.

This I believe is real change.
