When our kids were young, our family visited a local dairy farm. The cows were neatly lined up in stainless steel enclosures and there was food in front of each one of them – dried corn. The farm worker moved down the row and tossed a shovel of white powder on each stack of “feed” – then he mixed it a little. A boy asked, “What’s the white powder?” The worker explained that it was a “special blend of 43 vitamins and minerals”. It seems that the cows weren’t productive if they didn’t receive their powdered supplement. They just didn’t produce milk.
Throughout history, cows have nibbled grass and made milk. Something had changed in this modern era. The cows needed added supplements in order to make milk. I can only conclude that the food they were eating was deficient in those 43 vitamins and minerals. The only logical way the corn could be deficient is if the soil that produced it was also deficient.
If the feed for cows is lacking nutrients, can the same be said about the produce humans consume? The answer is clearly, YES, and sadly, it has been a known FACT since at least 1936 (United States Senate Document #264, 74th Congress, 2nd Session, June 1936). That’s when the U.S. government evaluated a report that demonstrated how our soil is dramatically deficient in mineral nutrients. The report was prepared by Dr. Charles Northen, presented, and then promptly disregarded. Things were bad in 1936, but our leaders decided that corrective action wasn’t needed. Perhaps they believed it was too costly. Regardless, if soil was depleted in 1936, it is probably more so today, almost 75 years later.
The cows received a powdered supplement and people have vitamins and minerals readily available. One problem disclosed in the 1936 report is that minerals are necessary and that they are best made available to us in real food, not as a pill we pop in the morning. Soil remains depleted and our only option is to use oral supplements even though they are not optimal. We must find sources of minerals that are still part of natural foods.
To make matters even more dire, call to mind that our soil has been further damaged with chemical contaminants from acid rain, chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and a stew pot of environmental debris. While mineral depletion is deadly, the added chemical toxins make eating a decidedly unhealthy activity. These poisons and chemicals don’t just go away on their own. They actually bind to cells and fat in our bodies and accumulate – unless we do something proactive to help move the toxins out of ourselves.
As most people, I’ve long refused to accept the idea that people are accumulating toxins and that we need help removing those substances from our bodies. I am changing my position. I am now actively searching for help in detoxifying my body. I’ve tried some homeopathic substances and I think they were helpful. Since spring of 2009, I’ve been using a commercial flush product. I’ve done comparative blood testing and find that I have improved my health by using the products. My wife has had similar positive changes in her blood chemistry. We are not alone.
I have become a supporter of detoxification and flushing. I am on a quest to discover the best products available and I’ll report on them as I find them.
Here’s a link to the actual scanned version of the 1936 report I referenced. http://www.senate.gov/reference/resources/pdf/modernmiraclemen.pdf
