Extremely Important: Nutrients From Whole Foods versus Isolated Nutrients


WHOLE FOOD VITAMINS: Ascorbic Acid is Not Vitamin C, by Dr. Tim O'Shea

This will be a short chapter, but after you're finished with it, you will know more about vitamins than 95% of clinical nutritionists, doctors, supplement sales force, or bodybuilders. If that sounds arrogant or overstated, it really isn't my fault. I'm just a messenger; a purveyor of information. Either I'm right or the 95% are right; can't be both.

A Vegan Diet Can Prevent and Treat Chronic Diseases


From paleopathology, we have learned that cultures with primarily animal-centered diets, such as the meat-eating nobility of recent centuries, suffered many of the same diseases that we do today, including heart disease, hardening of the arteries, cancer, gallstones, kidney stones, osteoporosis, arthritis, tooth decay, gout, and even headaches. Interestingly, these diseases were not present in humans eating plant-based diets, e.g., most of the primitive human cultures, and the peasants, slaves, and “common folk” of recent history.

The Live Blood and Cellular Matrix Study


In 1999 Mr. Patrick McGean's son was diagnosed with germ cell testicular cancer. He had multiple surgeries, cisplatin chemotherapy and finally an auto globus stem cell transplant. Following the transplant his oncologists declared that the treatment was unsuccessful and that he had a 3% chance of survival for the next few years. The Live Blood Study was begun with this information and the introduction to sulfur was by accident.

Nutritional Genomics: Interaction Between Nutrients and Genes


“Modern” Science is now proving the age-old adage “You Are What You Eat” is true: Nutrition is a key factor in the development of chronic diseases. Nutritional research has therefore evolved from a discipline that determines the required daily intake of calories and essential macro-and micronutrients into a biomedical science with a high potential for disease prevention. The food industry has responded to this awareness by designing foods that not only attempt to satisfy the hedonic preferences of the consumer but also promise additional health benefits.

Nutritional Deficiency May Breed Deadlier Viruses


Poor nutrition leads to mutations that create more dangerous forms of the influenza virus and may contribute to newly virulent outbreaks of viral epidemics ranging from the common cold to AIDS and Ebola hemorrhagic fever, university researchers said on Friday.

Deficiencies of selenium allowed the human influenza virus to mutate into more virulent forms in mice, and a similar mutation is likely to occur in people, researchers said in a study in the FASEB Journal, published by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology.
