It has been reported that vitamins don’t do any good.
Yet the AMA recommends taking vitamins, the CDC shows that at least 50 percent of American’s have low Vitamin D levels… and women have low levels of iodine and iron.
In the past a lack of folic acid in foods was causing major birth defects and because of adding folic acid to grains birth defects dropped.
9 out of every 10 people in the US are deficient in potassium, and 8 out of 10 people in the states are deficient in vitamin E, plus 7 out of 10 people have very low calcium.
In fact it was reported to congress in 1936 that our farm lands were depleted of trace minerals because of lack of good (organic) farming practices – thus our people were lacking in these micro nutrients.
A well know doctor on TV talks about the fact that only 1 percent of the population is not deficient in vitamins and minerals, thus all the rest are lacking in these nutrients in some way.
And many other celebrated doctors who have written books say that up to 90 percent of the US population lacks vitamins and trace minerals.
Harvard Medical School, especially the public health sector recommends taking vitamins as a good insurance policy against disease.
A study at the Cleveland Clinic showed that Americans have very low levels of Vitamin D. And the lack of Vitamin D is related to coming down with cancer and cardiovascular disease. And a study talked about in “Scientific American” says that a large portion of the population is deficient in Vitamin D.
The CDC has also shown that 10 percent of the population is low in B-6, while other populations lack Vitamin B-12.
Look at the typical American diet with all the fast food, fried food, and you see nothing but brown food, full of fats and calories in which 75% of all the nutrients are depleted, and 100% of the live enzymes are missing.
We need good nutrition and that means lots of organic fruits, veggies, and whole grains. I am not saying that vitamins are great, but if we don’t eat right perhaps vitamins are helping… at least just a little bit.
In countries where they have a lack of good nutrition they have diseases such as:
Biotin deficiency, Paraesthesia, Vitamin K deficiency, Night Blindness, Pellegra, Beriberia, Rickets, Scurvy, Ariboflavinosis, lots of birth defects and more.
In fact my father was a rice farmer and they grew rice for South Korea, and when their rice was being processed the Korean government asked that vitamins and minerals be added to their rice in order to prevent disease.
Most of all we really need to eat right!
But I also recommend taking Chlorella – this wonderful algae has over 60 different nutrients that help to prevent any kind of deficiency… including essential and non essential proteins.
And because Chlorella is a “food” it’s readily absorbed into the body in order to maintain great health and vitality.
