The Importance of Phosphorus: From the Soil to Your Body


Phosphorus, an often misunderstood and ignored element, is certainly one of the most important to the human body. It is the body's energy transporter, responsible for muscular contractions, nervous transmission, DNA manufacture and cell synthesis. It has more functions than any other mineral and is required constantly and abundantly.

All phosphates, however, are not created equal. Many conventional fertilizers are made with poor-quality or even "spent" phosphates. Which ones you ingest through your food will largely determine your levels of energy and the quality of your cellular structure. It is important to realize the direct connection between how the food we eat is grown and the quality of our own health.

The Fertilizer Fiasco

Phosphates come in many forms. In natural soil reserves, phosphates are blended with calcium and various trace minerals. When soil phosphate levels are naturally low or depleted, most modern farmers use acid-treated, concentrated, quick-release, water-soluble forms of phosphate fertilizer. This refined phosphoric acid has had its calcium and trace minerals stripped away and much of its energy lost.

Phosphoric acid is also used in heavy industry. After it is used, or "spent," this dead waste product is loaded with contaminants and heavy metals. Even so, this toxic waste finds its way back into agricultural fertilizers as a cheap and "convenient" way of recycling it!

When poor quality, "spent" phosphates are used as fertilizers, crops are forced to use them for cell-building. And down the line, so are we! This low-energy or dead phosphate either forms poor quality bonds with weak molecules or simply collapses altogether. The dead phosphates then form into crystals which plug up the kidneys and may cause any number of other health problems.

Poor quality cells also have very poor resistance to stress, quickly breaking down and supporting various parasites, yeasts and fungi. The cells may also become carcinogenic, as demonstrated in the photograph.

Soft Rocks and Building Blocks

The best form of phosphate fertilizers are natural, raw phosphate rock powders applied to highly biologically-active soils. There are two forms of these fertilizers -- a mineral calcium phosphate hard-rock form, and a colloidal soft-rock form. Colloidal soft-rock is of superior quality, containing approximately 20 per cent phosphate, 40 per cent calcium and 40 per cent trace minerals.

This unique colloidal phosphate forms the strongest bonds and best DNA in all living systems - from soil microbes to plants, animals and humans. If people were raised from birth on food grown with this wonderful substance, the interior of their bones would be like solid ivory instead of the spongy appearance considered normal today. All cells in the body would have high-quality, high-energy cell bonds with maximum strength and resistance to stress and disease.

Our bodies cannot make any better cells than the quality of cells in the foods we eat. We can't make high-quality bricks out of poor-quality clay. Without this fundamental building block -- the healthy cell -- functioning properly, all health therapies are at best temporary stop-gap measures. The scabs on apples, citrus fruits, potatoes and other produce (even if eradicated by chemical means) are intrinsically related to many forms of skin disease, including psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis and candida. Moulds, yeasts and fungi only set in where there is free room and board -- on poor quality cellular structure.
