Much of the “prevailing wisdom,” when it comes to what foods are good to eat and which are not, has been skewed over profit motivations and the motivation of control. Possibly the best example is fluoride.
Fluoride is an industrial waste product that was sold to the public on the premise that it is good for our teeth. Manufacturers were desperate to get rid of the stuff and couldn’t dispose of it legally. They needed to rebrand it and sell it as a nutrient. Today, those who have done some basic research know fluoride damages our nervous systems and imperils our cardiovascular health. The same advertising agency that worked for big tobacco in the 50s and 60s pushed fluoride on the ADA using falsified studies, and we have been imbibing it ever since.
Another great example is fats. We were told that fat in our food is killing us when sugars are the real culprit. Our nervous tissues and arteries need fat to be healthy. Another result of the propaganda over fat is faulty science leading to the creation of statin drugs that have driven the rates of Alzheimer’s and senile dementia through the roof by stripping people’s brains of fats they desperately need.
The facts surrounding fluoride, fats, and statins, are only contested in areas where the public encounters them most frequently. In serious scientific circles and the white papers of major organizations, it is recognized that what the public is told is false. The FDA has never approved fluoride as a drug, and cholesterol is produced by the body.
It makes sense. After all, if we have a two-tiered system of law- why not a two-tiered system of health? It is cheaper to feed people an inferior product. Indeed, you get what you pay for. Of course, these faulty medical interventions need to be approved by regulatory bodies. But regulatory bodies are subject to the machinations of people whose motives are impure- people who benefit from making the public sick and weak. It has been proven that fluoride lowers IQ.
The topic of salt is another area where the public has been grievously mislead. Often, the profit motive and the control motive can be served with similar methods- a fact that legacy power groups have known for centuries.
Salt is a necessary nutrient that regulates the diffusion of water in our bodies as well as the electrical signals the brain and nervous system use to facilitate communication between neurons. Without salt, one of the first things you’ll notice is dry gooey mucosa accumulating around the eyes during sleep. Even if you drink plenty of water- low salt levels will lead to cellular dehydration.
Sea salt is being sold as a luxury. Pure untainted salt is more expensive than regular salt- just as fluoride free toothpaste is more expensive than ordinary toothpaste. You get what you pay for.
Table salt, commonly referred to as “refined,” is an excellent example of the profit motive at work in the foods we eat. Refined salt is stripped of the minerals that make it healthy. These minerals are then sold to supplement manufacturers who use it in the vitamins that we have been convinced we need to be well.
But this is not enough when it comes to producing attractively packaged salt and processed foods that contain it. The manufacturers of processed food products have also recognized that their wares sell better if they stay dry and pour easily. They address this problem by adding silicates to the salt. Silicates are used in many dry powdered foods as it prevents clumping, allowing them to be easily poured.
These silicates are related to glass- as in fiberglass. When this substance gets into the bloodstream it irritates the blood vessels, stimulating our bodies to produce more cholesterol in order to protect our arteries from the silicates in the salt we are eating.
It’s easy to see why this would cause clinicians to mistakenly label salt as a hazard to our health. But we would hope they would have been scientifically minded enough to realize that refined salts and silica were important variables. Mainstream science has failed to recognize these variables- and we are paying the price.
Not all sea salt is created equal. You have to read the packaging carefully. There should be only one ingredient- sea salt. A good rule of thumb is to look at the crystals. Good salt is chunky. It looks like little fluffy white rocks- whereas table salt is almost like a powder- desiccated, ruined, and incomplete.
