- the Health Issue of our Age:
School children, adult-onset diabetes in children, mushrooming obesity
statistics, huge restaurant portions, cheap, high calorie fast foods -
there is endless discussion of why we are so fat! The answer is quite
simple - unhealthy
foods and cheap food policy.
grocery stores are filled with unhealthy foods - refined foods that have
been stripped of many of their important nutrients, highly processed foods
containing unhealthy substances, high calorie, low nutrient foods that are
highly profitable. If you study these Dietary
Guidelines from the Weston A. Price Foundation, you'll understand what
I mean. Dietitians have always recommended moderation in eating, but we
didn't understand how flawed the commercial foods that fill our grocery
store shelves had become as the result of the 'Profit is King' mentality.
We did not realize how ostrich-like the big food corporations were as they
supposedly studied the safety of their refined, processed, chemicalized,
mass-produced concoctions. Krispin,
a well-versed on-line dietitian, has identified two important nutrients
which most people do not get enough of - magnesium and Vitamin D - both of
which are essential for maintaining a healthy weight. They are
probably just the 'tip of the iceberg' when it comes to nutrients
essential for maintaining a healthy body and body weight. Following the Dietary
Guidelines helps to assure that you are getting all the nutrients your
body needs, although many folks may need to supplement, to make up for
past indiscretions and limited access to the most nutritious foods.
Many common weight loss
diets/programs are low in fat (concentrated calories) and higher in carbs.
care professionals have implicated high carb foods, and more particularly
sugar and grains, as contributing to obesity, as well as numerous other degenerative
health problems. For more info on restricting carbs for better health and

The adverse influence of commercial interests on our food

ordinary grocery stores can truly give you the "blues". In order
to follow the dietary guidelines I
recommend you'll probably have to seek out alternate
food sources - a food co-op, farmer's market, a local farmer, your
garden. Be prepared to be choosy - and remember the high
cost to your health and the environment of "Cheap Food."

Dr. William D. Kelly's Nutritional-Metabolic Therapy
There is a
startling story related by Maynard Murray, the doctor who discovered that
sea water (or dried sea solids) in the correct amount was an excellent
source of minerals to use as fertilizer. (Sea
Energy Agriculture, by M Murray, Acres U.S.A.) He noted that sea
animals and ocean fish rarely develop cancer, whereas land animals and
river fish do. He surmised that since all the earth's minerals ultimately
end up in the oceans, and since sea water is very similar in composition
to blood serum, sea water provided all the minerals the sea animals needed
for healthy growth, and should provide all the minerals that plants need
for healthy growth. His many experiments proved that this is indeed true,
as he produced very healthy, pest-free crops using sea solids for
fertilizer and very healthy animals raised on these crops.
In one experiment
he took some rats that had been bred to develop fatal breast cancer and
fed half of them standard rat chow and half were fed super nutritious food
that had been grown on soil fertilized with sea solids. The chow-fed rats
all developed cancer as expected and died within eight months. The rats
fed the super food were sacrificed at 16 months and none had cancer.
Excellent nutrition made that much difference! The lesson I take from this
is that nutrition can have a powerful influence on the course of cancer.
The three stories below relate how three individuals did what the doctors
say is impossible - they enabled their bodies to heal themselves by the
use of super nutrition with real foods. May they be an inspiration to you

When you eat junk food high in modern processed vegetable oils
(which are referred to at "fats") and sugars (low in fiber):
Result is imbalance of gut microbes toward the bad guys

Immune system detects endotoxin and mounts inflammatory
Inflammation leads to leaky gut, upsets sugar regulation

Endotoxin and inflammation decline
Insulin sensitivity restored and sugars handled properly

is one of the most perplexing
problems of our age. It has been blamed on our high fat diets, but the
etiology is far more complex. For an excellent review of the issues
involved with heart disease check out "What
Causes Heart Disease?" by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig or "The
Skinny on Fats", by the same authors.
Here is a summary quoted from page
two of the second article:
Cause And Treatment Of Heart Disease
of heart disease is not animal fats and cholesterol but rather a number of
factors inherent in modern diets, including excess consumption of vegetables
oils and hydrogenated fats; excess consumption of refined carbohydrates in
the form of sugar and white flour; mineral deficiencies, particularly low
levels of protective magnesium and iodine; deficiencies of vitamins,
particularly of vitamin C, needed for the integrity of the blood vessel
walls, and of antioxidants like selenium and vitamin E, which protect us
from free radicals; and, finally, the disappearance of antimicrobial fats
from the food supply, namely, animal fats and tropical oils.
once protected us against the kinds of viruses and bacteria that have been
associated with the onset of pathogenic plaque leading to heart disease.
serum cholesterol levels provide an inaccurate indication of future heart
disease, a high level of a substance called homocysteine in the blood has
been positively correlated with pathological buildup of plaque in the
arteries and the tendency to form clots-a deadly combination. Folic acid,
vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and choline are nutrients that lower serum
homocysteine levels. These nutrients are found mostly in animal foods.
way to treat heart disease, then, is not to focus on lowering
cholesterol-either by drugs or diet-but to consume a diet that provides
animal foods rich in vitamins B6 and B12; to bolster thyroid function by
daily use of natural sea salt, a good source of usable iodine [actually kelp
is a better source of iodine]; to avoid
vitamin and mineral deficiencies that make the artery walls more prone to
ruptures and the buildup of plaque; to include the antimicrobial fats
[such as coconut oil and sesame oil] in the
diet; and to eliminate processed foods containing refined carbohydrates,
oxidized cholesterol and free-radical-containing vegetable oils that cause
the body to need constant repair."
verdict - if your diet is deficient in almost anything, it probably
affects your heart adversely! The first
article is a long article! If you are in a
hurry, do a page search on 'Solutions' (second occurrence) for a summary
of what to do to protect yourself against heart disease.

The same violent friction and athermic deformations that can occur in our
bodies when we are subjected to radar or microwaves, happens to the
molecules in the food cooked in a microwave oven. In fact, when anyone
microwaves food, the oven exerts a power input of about 1,000 watts or
more. This radiation results in destruction and deformation of molecules
of food, and in the formation of new compounds (called radiolytic
compounds) unknown to man and nature.
Originally printed from the April
1994 edition of Acres, USA.
"A study done in Europe showed that micro waving changes the
molecular structure of foods, making them depressive to the immune system,
therefore I highly advise against the consumption of foods cooked
defrosted or re-heated in a microwave if you are trying to improve your
health and immune system."
"Whatever form of gelatin is used, it should never be cooked or
reheated in the microwave. According to a letter published in The
Lancet, the common practice of microwaving converts l-proline to d-proline.
They write, “The conversion of trans to cis forms
could be hazardous because when cis-amino acids are incorporated
into peptides and proteins instead of their trans isomers, this
can lead to structural, functional and immunological changes.” They
further note that “d-proline is neurotoxic and we have reported
nephrotoxic and heptatotoxic effects of this compound.”55 In
other words, the gelatin in homemade broth confers wondrous benefits, but
if you heat it in the microwave, it becomes toxic to the liver, kidneys
and nervous system."

In the nutrition textbooks that I have collected over the years there is
so often a whole chapter on how to recognize food fallacies, food
"faddists" and "quacks". What is behind this
persistent effort to put fear of fallacies (food or otherwise) in the mind
of professionals? I think we can get a clue from the story behind
Quackwatch.com, which is recommended in the textbooks as a reliable source
of information about "fallacies". But, in fact,
Quackwatch.com itself is the fraud, as can be seen by this ruling of a
judge in Pennsylvania against Quackwatch Founder Stephen Barrett:
"Barrett is a
shill for the medical and pharmaceutical cartels and his bully tactics and
unjustified discrediting of leading innovators, scientists and health
practitioners should not be tolerated.”

Divisive Issues of Our Age
There are so many divisive issues in
our age - vegetarianism, homosexuality, global free trade, farm prices,
chemical agriculture. I am assembling some Wisdom
Passages which can guide our thoughts on these issues.
On Corrupt Leaders
"I will send
disaster upon the leaders of my people--the shepherds of my sheep--for
they have destroyed and scattered the very ones they were expected to care
for," says the LORD.
This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says to these shepherds:
"Instead of leading my flock to safety, you have deserted them and
driven them to destruction. Now I will pour out judgment on you for the
evil you have done to them.
Jeremiah 23: 1-2
Dividing Wall of Hostility
But now in Christ Jesus you who once were
far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ.
For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed
the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh
the law with its commandments and regulations.
Ephesians 2:13, 14 (NIV)
Power of God's Love
And may you have
the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long,
how high, and how deep his love really is. May you experience the love of
Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you
will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to
accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope.
Web of Life -
Wisdom quoted on Dr. Bronner's Soap wrappers - www.drbronner.com:
has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever
we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All
live here as in an egg - either we evolve or we decay." Confucius

"Government, like fire, is
our most useful servant, if fully controlled by us, its citizens! And
government, exactly like fire, becomes our most destructive master, if not

Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
