За автора

Marc Swanepoel  has a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree with Mathematics and Physics as majors, a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree with Psychology and Philosophy as majors, and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in Natural Health. He initially worked for a few years as a Physics lecturer but then got involved in a number of entrepreneurial ventures.

In 1975 Marc and some of his friends became concerned about the political problems South Africa was facing. They considered Apartheid an extreme form of Socialism and formed the Free Market Foundation of Southern Africa (FMF) as an institution to guide the country in the direction of a Market Economy. Marc funded the FMF for the first two years after which it became self-supporting. In 1983 Marc and a business partner started a training company, The Foundation for Economic and Business Development (FEBDEV) to run economic literacy programmes for workers. Marc produced an 8-hour video training course for this purpose. It was translated into 7 of the South African languages and, for the period 1983 to 1992, more than one and a half million workers attended the training. Marc also wrote two other booklets, “Understanding and Avoiding AIDS” (1988), and “The Common Sense of Wealth Creation” (1992). Each of these sold more than half a million copies. “The common sense of Wealth Creation” has been translated into six Eastern European languages and is being read in many countries. Marc has given permission for the book to be translated into any language and he does not receive any royalties on sales. A Google search will show some of the translations. The AIDS video earned Marc the yearly Ad Educandum award by the South African National Department of Education for best educational video aimed at Secondary Schools.

Marc’s interest in health issues and alternative therapies started in the 1970s. After seeing a number of friends die from cancer and observing that current therapies seemed ineffective, he started to research other ways of dealing with the scourge. This culminated in him earning a PhD in Natural Health. He presently lives in Cape Town from where he exports his patented herbal mixtures for cancer and AIDS. He lives with his partner of 40 years, Lynn, and has 3 sons, one daughter and 7 grandchildren.
