Editorial #2 - May 24, 2003
Diet of Death
The word "decimate" originally meant
to reduce by or kill one in ten.
Today it is used to mean reduce by a majority.
When people find that only about one in ten of us remain then I
am sure that many will find it much easier to think positively about
Should there be only one out of ten left I feel sure that we will
also find it much easier to see how we could choose and elect our
own representatives and govern ourselves; a responsibility we must
take if we are to achieve our Human potential.
But, as our Christian Bible tells us, many stubbornly resist torments
to the end.
The good thing about free will is that we have
a choice of future, the bad, it seems,
is that we have to think for ourselves.
It is now a time to think about saving our future!
We may usefully discuss defense against biological warfare, a warfare
that will torment worldwide and in many ways. There is also the
'nuke' with its tormenting fallout; these are pestilences we have
given into the hands of our Globalist gods.
At date of writing SARS is reported to kill only a small percent
of those affected but the end of this threat is far from certain,
we may escape lightly but our stooge governments try to 'play down'
the danger for fear of economic loss or electoral backlash.
In the moral climate of today many risk spreading the disease because
they care more for the common $ than the common sense. If SARS should
advance toward epidemic levels in China, the percentage to die will
rise as infection dosages increase and medical service fails. Epidemics
will cross borders and economies will crash. SARS may be only one
of many such dangers but responsible action will greatly increase
our chance of survival.
Not being a doctor I confine advice to common sense. To improve
chances of survival against germ warfare we should first, as far
as practical, avoid crowds. In an area of local infection a face-mask
may help. Against virus our natural defense is a healthy lifestyle.
It is said: cleanliness is next to godliness; adopt common sense
hygiene as a habit.
That this virus has been better controlled in prosperous areas
probably reflects a better level of health and hygiene in those
areas. We still have much to learn about lifestyle, health and nutrition.
It is normal for commercially produced foods, both vegetable and
animal, to have growth forced with chemical fertilizers and growth
Pesticides, poisons, chemical fertilizers! Add genetic engineering
of foods without fully tested long term effects. Our commercial
system gives dominance to packaged convenience and sales appeal;
nutrition is usually a sales gimmick, not a concern.
The results of the above (plus selection for keeping qualities
and sales appeal) means food has become a nutritional disaster area.
But that is not the end of it: this danger is not made public other
than by protest groups given little or no public support! Exposure
has been treated with scorn and denigrated as 'ratbag' by politically
correct sources of mass media, public health agencies and national
governments. Here are three examples of quality decline given by
a small Australian publication called "Just Organics":
Excerpt from US Senate Document 264 in [note]1936.
"It is horrific news to learn from our leading authorities
that 99% of the American people are deficient in these minerals,
and that a marked deficiency of any one of the more important minerals
actually results in disease.
"Any upset of the balance, any considerable lack of a single
element (mineral), however minute the body requirement might be,
and we sicken, suffer and shorten our lives.
Difference between Organic and Inorganic
% of dry weight
Yes we are increasingly discouraged from taking vitamins and mineral
supplements; yes they do tell us that we are wasting our money as
we can get all our needs from a healthy diet. The mystery: if they
ARE concerned for public health why do they not tell us that our
foods CAN NOT create a healthy diet unless grown organically? Why
do they make no effort to encourage production of nutritious foods?
Why do they not expose production where nutrition has been destroyed?
If 'stooge governments' were "OUR governments" they would
work to protect us, they would NOT protect and help those who destroy
health for money or who have a vested interest in undermining our
health! Why are we being distracted from what is going on around
us. Food problems were also referred to in our August Editorial
(2002). See "The Gentle
Face of Terror"
The above points our way to better health and stronger immune systems.
A good starting point, where possible, is to begin growing as much
of our own food as we can. Those without garden space can work to
create group projects in secure locations. Use Heritage seed if
available; learn to avoid chemical fertilizers and poison sprays;
learn alternative pest controls and to make compost. When needed
use natural fertilizers: animal manure's, blood & bone, or those
fish or seaweed based.
Some high value foods relatively easy to grow are turnip, radish,
beet-(root) (the nice fresh leaves of each of these are also very
nutritious in salads). Also nutritious are pumpkin, garlic, cabbage;
fruits include Blueberry, Avocado, Grapefruit; in fact probably
all common vegetables and fruit when naturally (organically) grown
in healthy soil.
A useful book is Dr. Cass Ingram's "Supermarket Cures"
2nd edition 2002. Published in the USA by Knowledge House, PO Box
4885, Buffalo Grove, Illinois 60089.
In Australia by; Bookman Health, Level 9 Trak Centre, 443-449 Toorak
Road, TOORAK Victoria 3142. This book does not cover all supermarket
items nor does it give us a chemical analysis (analysis, of course,
varies according to where and how things are grown), but within
its three hundred pages is a lot of basic information related to
common foods nutrition and health. But healthy eating requires we
eat healthy foods.
Organic foods aren't always available in supermarkets. Every adult
should be taking at least a good "multivitamin-mineral"
each day. Remember; it takes very little common sense to avoid danger
of overdosing with healthy foods and vitamins, or to avoid things
to which you are allergic. Overdosing or misuse of pharmaceuticals
is a common danger.
Learn to avoid processed and prepackaged foods; they often contain
harmful additives or use processes that destroy nutrition. Do not
take too seriously official nutrition opinion. Doctors, often, are
not trained in nutrition and most of what has been advocated over
the last 20 years for weight loss and health is now being shown
by independent research to be irrelevant or harmful. Not so surprising
when you know that industries promoting those ideas profit in $billions
from sickness but gain nothing from good health.
Town water is another problem! Not only does it have all manners
of chemicals added to neutralize impurities but fluoride is often
added for mass medication. However we are all different, what is
good for me may be bad for you. Some popular medications react badly
with me. There is also opinion that fluoride is a mind sedative.
It is an expense and bit of a nuisance to use a filter good enough
to remove fluoride. I did it for about twenty years before moving
to the country and recommend the use of reverse-osmosis water filters
for city and town dwellers. With luck we may have a year or two
to adopt healthier, more moral, lifestyles; but time is running
out, we cannot start too soon.
Groups such as Health Sciences Institute (HSI) put out a lot of
interesting information. I cannot recommend untried products but
my experience indicates that, for many problems, alternative cures
are better and safer than pharmaceuticals. It is to our shame that
we allow financial powers invested interests that give them huge
We have to open our eyes! Globalist international drug companies
profit financially and politically from our poor health, ignorance
and poverty. They are masters of both genetic engineering and intellectual
deceit. They produce the drugs and, through cash donation and political
influence, direct medical education! Successful students believe
A few words from HSI; quote: "Not long ago, some
of the best of these brilliant minds got tired of watching their
hard-won breakthroughs get buried by red tape, out-of-control regulators,
and special interests.
They decided it was time for an information revolution. And so...they
created a network with which to share the news of underground medicine
and amazing, effective cures and treatments with other members...
This network, called the Health Sciences Institute (HSI), has now
grown to over 75,000 people and includes sources from as far as
Malaysia to as near as the top universities in the U.S."
Further to the above another shortened HSI quote. Reviews work
of recently deceased Dr. Atkins; quote: "an influential,
groundbreaking leader in the field of complementary medicine, he
was indeed something of a guru - a trusted counselor who helped
millions of people regain their physical health with his unconventional
ideas about nutrition."
"After many years of abuse by mainstream nutritionists, there
was a sea change for Dr. Atkins
in July I told you about a
cover story in the Sunday New York Times Magazine that showed how
a steadily growing minority of establishment researchers were beginning
to take seriously the low-carbohydrate diet
"In a nutshell, the Atkins plan advises us to eat as much meat
and other high protein and high fat foods as we care to, while avoiding
starches and refined carbohydrates such as breads, pasta, rice,
and sugars. This plan has won many millions of readers worldwide,
but has drawn numerous, often passionate attacks from the nutrition
and diet establishment.
"The American Heart Association has long condemned the Atkins
diet as an unhealthy regimen for the cardiovascular system. So it
must have been thoroughly galling to many in the AHA "low-fat"
camp when the results of a Duke University study were announced
last November, as part of the 75th annual AHA meeting. In all of
the heart health categories in that trial, the Atkins diet scored
equal or higher marks than the AHA's "Step 1" low-fat
"In the Duke study
half followed the AHA's Step 1, low-
fat diet, and the other half followed the Atkins diet, in which
60 percent of their daily calories came from fat, while carbohydrates
were reduced to less than 20 grams per day. The Atkins subjects
lost, on average 31 pounds each over 6 weeks, while the AHA group
lost an average of 20 pounds each.
But the real news comes
from three sets of data that are touted to measure heart health.
"The levels of LDL cholesterol (commonly called "bad cholesterol")
for the two groups showed almost no statistical change.
the Atkins group showed an 11 percent increase in HDL cholesterol
(the "good" cholesterol). The AHA group recorded no rise
in their HDL levels.
"Finally, and more importantly, the AHA group had a 22 percent
drop in triglycerides, while the Atkins group experienced a triglycerides
drop of almost 50 percent - more than double the AHA dieters.
This was a major victory for Dr. Atkins - to be vindicated with
prestigious research, and to have it announced in the camp of his
most vocal detracters." End quotes.

A fast growing volume of alternative medication and health information
is now available. Natural hormones and vitamins suffer regulation
to discourage, restrict or ban. We are under constantly increasing
attack by physical and mental virus while being distracted with
sport; entertainment and animal passions! Our right to use, and
our ability to obtain, alternative medication is under open attack.
Knowledge is power: to learn is to live.
