Why We Do It

Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
                               Willing is not enough; we must do.              Goethe 

The Foundation was founded by Dr. Harold Foster who had one simple goal in mind: To help reduce human suffering by changing how we think about health, disease and the environment. 

Dr. Foster spent more than 40 years researching the links between "health, nutrition and the geographical environment."  He was a recognized expert in disaster planning, consulting for the UN, NATO and various governments.  He authored or edited over 300 publications, many focused on reducing disaster losses and identifying the causes of chronic degenerative and infectious diseases.  In the mid 1980s, his focus shifted specifically to health and diseases, where Dr. Foster established pioneering work in the area of Medical Geography that lead to major breakthroughs in how to address metabolic deficiencies responsible for the progression of many diseases.

Starting in 2004, a series of medical trials were conducted based on his research into the geographical correlations seen with HIV/AIDS, focusing on the nutritional deficiencies caused by the virus and the disease.  The significant findings resulted in the need to apply the original ideas, here and abroad. 

The Foundation is committed to providing applied education to all in order to prevent the spread of disease, encourage better care of our environment and to promote well being.
