"NUTRITION, SUPPLEMENTS, AND ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS Ours is a nutrition-conscious age in which "natural" products are widely advertised and self-proclaimed nutrition experts abound. Health food stores and bookstores offer a wealth of information and misinformation about nutritional programs and products, often loaded with contradictory and inflated claims. Medical schools have typically paid little attention to nutrition, yet we often turn to our physicians for nutritional advice. Fortunately, many medical schools are now requiring courses in nutrition, and research in this area is flourishing."

"Foods for your brain and bones You can also give yourself outstanding brain nutrition by eating avocados, eggs, fresh berries and various raw vegetables. For avoiding osteoporosis, you need to get a large amount of calcium into your diet, but drinking milk is not the way to do that. The best way to get calcium into your diet is to get it from broccoli and green vegetables. You also get a tremendous amount of calcium from superfoods such as spirulina, which contains a large amount of calcium and other trace minerals found in ocean waters where spirulina is grown and harvested."

"Sunlight provides what I and others call "vibrational" nutrition. If you think of the colors of the rainbow as different nutrients or vitamins, then natural sunlight combines all of those colors into one multi-colored white light and projects that healing white light all the way through space to arrive on planet earth, where it can touch your skin and have a powerful healing effect. Natural sunlight is, I believe, absolutely essential for optimum human health."

"I then add additional optimizers to this basic cellular nutrition program according to the seriousness of each individual case. Other than grape-seed extract, the optimizer I recommend most is CoQlO. It is not only a potent antioxidant but it is also essential for the creation of energy within the cell. In addition CoQlO is a very important nutrient in enhancing the immune system. [Note: CoQ10 is difficult to absorb."

"That is why cellular nutrition is so critical to our health. Turn the page and meet the new kid on the block . . . homocysteine. SIX Homocysteine: The New Kid on the Block Have you ever heard of homocysteine? Or better yet, has your doctor ever recommended a blood test to check your personal homocysteine level? Probably not. After reading this chapter I guarantee you will wonder why. Few people have ever heard of this substance, and fewer still realize that it poses just as great a threat as cholesterol when it comes to cardiovascular disease."

"But after avoiding all processed foods, soft drinks, refined white flour and so on, and then taking up a diet of healthy nutrition including superfoods, chlorella, spirulina, raw vegetables and fruits, nuts, whole grains, healthy oils, and so on, my body and my mind have been powerfully transformed. Today I'm 185 lbs. I have fifteen more pounds of lean body mass than I've ever had."

"Orthomolecular Medicine Dr Linus Pauling, in his fundamental study of "orthomolecular" nutrition and in his celebrated book Vitamin C and the Common Cold, has shown how the human body lost its ability during evolution to make certain nutrients. About 60 million years ago man, other primates, the guinea pig, and an Indian fruit-eating bat lost the ability to make vitamin C. The process has not stopped. Dr Pauling proposed the word "orthomolecular" to describe the use of optimum (often large) doses of molecules naturally present in the body to treat poor health and to promote optimum health."

"Good micronutrient nutrition, which also includes iron, zinc, manganese, chromium, and antioxidant nutrients such as the mineral selenium and vitamins A, C, and E, bring enhanced energy, memory, blood sugar regulation, and immunity. The recommended daily allowance (RDA) of essential nutrients is intended to be available entirely through food. In reality, it is impossible to get these levels through the food available to us today, because our soil has become depleted in essential nutrients."
- Hyla Cass, Supplement Your Prescription: What Your Doctor Doesn't Know About Nutrition (Get the book.)

"Every person who takes prescription drugs needs to know about drug-induced nutrient depletion, and about how to effectively balance this side effect with appropriate nutrition from foods and supplements. In this book, I deal primarily with drugs intended for long-term use that cause slow depletion over time with serious effects—ones that mainstream medicine rarely traces back to the medication. In fact, the allopathic game plan usually entails adding more drugs to counter what is really attributable to drug-induced nutrient depletion."

- Hyla Cass, Supplement Your Prescription: What Your Doctor Doesn't Know About Nutrition (Get the book.)

"The information appears in the medical journals, but doctors are limited in what they have time to read, have little time per patient, and have had almost no training at all in nutrition in medical school. As a result, your doctor is unlikely to instruct you to supplement the prescription that he or she is handing you. PHARMACEUTICALS TODAY: GOOD, BUT NOT PERFECT Before the mid-1990s, consumers had enormous faith in the miracles of modern medicine."

"The taller babies had better nutrition. The study's real surprise came when children reached adolescence: by this time, there was no difference between the small babies at birth and the normal children, in terms of the school programs.

"In short, this 2002 FNB report, which represents the most sweeping, regressive nutrition policy statement I have ever seen, will either indirectly or directly promote sickness among Americans for many years to come. Having been a member of several diet and health policy-making expert panels over a twenty-year period I harbored the view that these panels were dedicated to the promotion of consumer health. I no longer believe this to be true."

"Another obstacle: lack of nutrition knowledge amongst physicians. Ess has had his share of interaction with ignorant doctors, and his impression is that "it's absolutely daunting, the lack of physician knowledge that there is about the fact that disease can be reversed. You wonder, what is the literature that these guys read?" Physician knowledge often involves only the standard treatments: pills and procedures. "What does the twentieth century of medicine have to offer? We have pills and we have procedures. Right?"

"A revolving door exists between government jobs and industry jobs, and government research funding goes to the development of drugs and devices instead of healthy nutrition. It is a system built by people who play their isolated parts, oftentimes unaware of the top decision makers and their ulterior motivations. The system is a waste of taxpayer money and is profoundly damaging to our health. 17 Big Medicine: Whose Health Are They Protecting? When is the last time that you went to the doctor and he or she told you what to eat or what not to eat? You've probably never had that experience."

"This section of the book will discuss the items shown on the nutrition label—and more—and also how they affect your health. The Four Basic Nutrients Water, carbohydrates, proteins, and fats are the basic building blocks of a good diet. By choosing the healthiest forms of each of these nutrients and eating them in the proper balance, you enable your body to function at its optimal level. Water The human body is two-thirds water. Water is an essential nutrient that is involved in every function of the body. It helps transport nutrients and waste products in and out of cells."

"By understanding the principles of holistic nutrition and knowing what nutrients you need, you can improve the state of your health, ward off disease, and maintain a harmonious balance in the way nature intended. Part One of this book should provide you with a clear understanding of the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, phytochemicals, and other nutrients you need, as well as important information on natural food supplements, herbs, and products that enhance nutrient activity."

"The past decade has brought to light much new knowledge about nutrition and its effects on the body, and the role it plays in disease. Phytochemicals, also known as phy-tonutrients, are one example of the results of this research. Phytochemicals are compounds present in plants that make the plants biologically active. They are not nutrients in the classic sense, but they determine plants' color, flavor, and ability to resist disease."

"Until doctors acknowledge these truths, it will be your responsibility to leam and practice good nutrition so that you can prevent disease and protect your own life if you do become ill. This will require discipline. It has been said that the undisciplined life is not worth living. We now know that the undisciplined life will also be short and full of misery."

"So when you're looking at weight loss, what you need to do is get nutrition into your body, not more sugar. This should be common sense, but it amazes me how many people will buy Slimfast, Ensure and other products that are made with refined carbohydrates and then consume them in large quantities, expecting to lose weight. Of course, one day, they'll wake up and look in the mirror and say, "Hmm. How come I haven't lost any weight, even though I've been drinking Slimfast three times a day for the past year?"
- Mike Adams, The Seven Laws of Nutrition (Get the book.)

"Phytochemicals: the Flavonoids Plants contain thousands of antioxidants, mostly in the form of specialized complex chemicals called flavonoids, each of which is a unique molecule that plays a major role in nutrition. Plants also contain numerous vitamins and minerals that act as antioxidants: one group of vitamins is called the carotenoids, which includes about forty different varieties that humans consume. Most of us have heard of beta-carotene, but there are others such as alpha carotene, lutein, lycopene, canthoxanthin, zeaxanthin, and cryptoxanthin."

"A professor of epidemiology and nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health, Stampfer looked at the blood levels of homocysteine in fifteen thousand physicians who were involved in a health study. Dr. Stampfer reported that even mildly elevated levels were directly related to an increased risk of developing heart disease. Those men who had the highest levels of homocysteine experienced three times the risk of developing a heart attack when compared with those who had the lowest levels."
