Most people don’t think about the food industry as having declared war on children. They haven’t thought about governments in terms of ensuring the war never ends. But the reality is that the entire weight of the food industry and all that’s wrong with it is focused on children from the point of conception.
When I was 11 years old in the early sixties, I was called to the school dental office. In those days schools had dental offices. That was a direct way to ensure that serious dental problems could be identified and corrected at an early age – an age where baby teeth were falling out to be replaced by adult permanent teeth. The value of this program could not be measured in mere dollars and cents.
Like today, dental care was expensive and for many families unaffordable. Again, like today.
If you read the last chapter, LOOK MA NO TEEF, you have a better understanding now of the relationship between teeth and over-all health and vitality.
No child can concentrate on school work while sitting in class continuously poking his or her tongue in and around the dental wreckage that modern diets generate. An entire school career spent that way debilitates children’s futures in measurable ways – except that no-one has bothered to measure. Teachers who mark test papers aren’t thinking about and nor are they qualified to concurrently assess the dental or physical health of their students.
There’s a clear line between those who can afford proper dental care and thus good bodily health and those who can’t. They are most conspicuously children and the elderly whose dental impairments cost society big dollars in ways most people can’t begin to imagine.
Right now, humanity is going through a techno-cultural revolution that dictates who will and will not be successful based on mental and physical health while feeding the next generation food that’s formulated to virtually guarantee poor performance, weak constitutions and life-long ill health.
Some people are waking up and changes are slowly being made. Unfortunately they still aren’t dealing from a position of knowledge because they simply do not have a complete medical/nutritional picture.
To get a grasp of what’s going on, we have to examine who is doing what to whom and who benefits. The only way to do that is to look at how food goes from the field, food lot and barn, to processor, to market to mouth. Along the way, marketing boards have plenty to say about why their products should be consumed.
In Canada we have legislated truth in advertising. But how do you regulate truth in advertising in the food industry when the legislators know virtually zero about the foods they’re supposed to be regulating and even less about basic health restoration issues. The doctors they’re relying on to advise them are nutritional morons who have no concept of cause and effect within the human body. You don’t believe this do you?
On January 11, 2010, I was operated on at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, Ontario to clean out a potentially life-threatening, diet-generated, middle ear infection. The meal I was offered post-operatively was Rice Krispies™ and milk. I was offended. It set off a dialogue whose goal from my perspective was to either force the hospital to live up to its health care responsibilities or, in a worst case scenario, educate medical practitioners about food impacts to help me access nutritional and dietary assistance resident at the hospital so my knowledge could be combined with theirs to generate the dietary assistance I need to ensure my ear infection doesn’t return.
My contention was that no patient should be fed post-operatively food that will likely contribute to making the health of the patient worse or generate a relapse. In my communication I described how foods cause infection and inflammation.
Rather than help me as I requested, the hospital threw up a roadblock. Sunnybrook’s Patient Relations Consultant, Trish Lospinuso wrote back stating:“I gather from my inquiries with Professional Practice Leader of Clinical Nutrition and with General Internal Medicine that your findings differ from the current scientific and research evidence that drives the practice of our clinicians at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Having searched the current scientific literature, the Practice Leader & Educator as well as the Internist that I consulted [they] informed me that there were no findings that allowed for the conclusions you have drawn though we do respect the position you have shared. Your concerns have been duly noted in the Patients Concerns repository so that we can monitor for trends in concerns about the impact of dairy on our post operative patients.”
In a subsequent letter from Sunnybrook’s Cynthia Bailey, Manager, Patient Relations and Risk in which she responded to my nutritional information came this acknowledgement of sorts:
“The amount of work and your level of commitment to this nutritional issue in healthcare is nothing short of impressive. We have documented your views, and we can only hope the science associated with this topic with your thinking on the matter. I think many of us would agree every great idea starts out as a novelty until it gains the necessary credibility through clinical trials and other means of testing hypothesis, even those that appear to be matters of common sense. I know that it’s hard to be patient but it does take time for new ideas to take hold and gain credence in the scientific community in order for an idea to develop into a new standard of practice.”
My subsequent response was that my “ideas” were not new either to science or medicine and are in fact about a century old. All that’s new is a patient actually understanding that the medical profession is intentionally ignoring scientific and medical evidence that has been and is available.
Those two quotes in a nutshell illustrate that science and the medical profession are one hundred years behind me the patient in terms of food applications in a medical sense. That’s not just a disgrace; it’s a medical disaster for generations of people past, present and future.
There are lots of reasons how this happened but what is relevant right now is how it’s being perpetuated and by whom.
To start with, luckily, we have something to compare our mismanaged and ineptly applied medical systems. The comparison is dentistry.
Dentistry and Medicine – Honour and Greed
Apparently, almost none of the doctors and nurses who have been to the dentist in the last hundred years have understood the concept of preventative maintenance and the negative impacts of food and liquids other than water. The dental profession has for decades not only filled and extracted teeth; it has also spent a lot of money, time and effort to make people aware of how important the health of their teeth is and the relationship between poor oral hygiene, the wrong foods and health consequences.
As pointed out in my letter to Sunnybrook, if the dental profession were run like the medical profession, there would be no toothpaste, tooth brushes, dental floss, Waterpiks™, or tongue scrapers available to the general public.
The medical profession has made almost zero effort to educate the public about food consequences except for stunningly amateurish efforts with respect to heart disease, diabetes and kidney stones. There certainly other examples but they are so poorly recognised by the public that the public at large doesn’t understand how foods negatively impact health other than weight issues – especially obesity.
There are plenty of money grubbing doctors attempting to cash in on the stunning weight gains by populations in all developed countries but most famously led by the porkers in America.
In order to save these people from embarrassment and the food industry from ruinous lawsuits, obesity has been re-invented as a disease.
Obesity is not and never has been a disease. It is not a condition you can catch from someone else or by being bitten by something. It is the direct and inevitable result of failing to comprehend and abide by a simple mathematical formula. That formula in simple terms is this:
If you put more food energy into your body than you expend and excrete, you will, without fail gain weight unless you die in an accident first. The opposite is true if you don’t eat and drink enough.
You cannot become overweight by eating less food than your body needs or be eating just enough. It’s impossible.
Anyone including your doctor who tells you differently is a jackass who never understood simple arithmetic.
So where would the law suits come from?
The food industry runs on several main crops and products. The fact that our food supply chain runs on these products has nothing to do with what any person needs in the way of nutrition. It only has to do with how to formulate products that people will spend their hard-earned money to buy.
There is no law against this as long as the food when it reaches you is fresh according to food regulations and otherwise uncontaminated.
Food labeling laws are an anemic effort to get the public to start paying attention to how much of what they put into their bodies.
However, neither the food regulations nor the labeling laws do anything to help the public understand what all the fuss is about.
The most fundamental abdication of responsibility has to do with nutritional fiber. By now everyone has hear that fiber is needed in our diets and most people at least vaguely understand where fiber comes from. However, what isn’t understood is why we all need to eat all this fiber beyond being told that it promotes regularity.
That is the essence of both medical fraud and the mega abuses by the food industry on children.
What is it to be regular? How important is regularity? Are we all different?
The simple answers to those questions are as follows:
- Regularity is a bowel movement approximately twelve hours after a meal is eaten. If you eat three meals, you have three bowel movements twelve hours after each. That is regularity. In real life, the timing can vary one way or the other by hours, not days.
- Regular bowel movements and urination are exactly as important as eating and drinking. Excretion of poisonous waste is not discretionary though timing can be up to a point. Failing to meet the schedule causes toxic build ups in your tissues. When those poisons accumulate, they become the sources of disease.
- No we are not all different, we are all the same. Doctors will tell you that a bowel movement once every three days is normal and that everyone is different. That is nothing short of a horrendous lie. It is such a profound lie that it forms the basis of a vast spectrum of medical abuses. Upon those abuses are built the fortunes of the pharmaceutical industry and the food industry.
Telling people they are all different when they are not has created mass confusion throughout the developed world and is quickly corrupting third world health as well.
Human beings all evolved on planet earth. We share mitochondria, the cellular structures that hold living things together with every other animate living thing on planet earth. We did not come from a different planet.
The methodology that makes life possible and allows us and every other creature on earth to live are amazingly similar. We are all tubes. Some of us have appendages, some don’t. Some have teeth, some don’t.
One thing we all have in common is the stark fact that no life form on this planet has evolved to carry stagnant, highly poisonous shit in its intestinal tract. But people do it all the time thanks entirely to the food industry.
However the food industry can honestly claim they didn’t know.
That’s because the people whose legal, professional and moral responsibility it is to keep society informed as to what’s good for us and what isn’t, haven’t done their jobs. Those people are the doctors who were told exactly how things stood by Professor Arnold Ehret a century ago. Doctors then had a choice – prove or disprove his claims. They did neither and hoped he’d go away. Instead he was killed in an accident or murdered. It isn’t known for sure which.
But he was internationally famous before his death for his seemingly miraculous cures. There was nothing magic about anything he did. It was all based on sound science and very simple to accomplish. Rather than pay attention, verify and incorporate his findings his information was suppressed by the medical community. There was more money to be made with pharmaceuticals than in healing people with cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower.
It should be said as well that to this day, as simple as Professor Erhet’s cures were to effect, they have not been duplicated since by the medical profession. As far as the medical profession is concerned, Professor Erhet was a magician for whom they have no answer.
As a direct result, the last hundred years have not only been wasted by doctors and scientists, fake science and fake proceedures have been entrenched in the meantime.
Our doctors who should be in a position to ban junk food from the market are instead held hostage by the market and even professionally discredited as in the Toronto case of Dr. Carolyn Dean who investigated the sugar industry and then had the nerve to tell the public the truth about sugar. Her professional decapitation was accomplished in two weeks.
By contrast, it took ten years to bring Dr. Smith to justice. He was an Ontario pediatric pathologist whose erroneous evidence was key to wrongfully convicting up to 40 people of the murders of their children.
That is the power of the food industry in Canada and in particular the sugar industry.
It’s important to understand that until modern medicine clearly understands the relationships between food and health consequences, negative and positive, big food interests have a license to kill the next generation.
Even that could be pardoned if it could be shown that the medical community was actively working to correct this situation with modern research.
Yes there is some research going on but it’s inconsequential when you consider the subjects that should be investigated that won’t be because of opposition by food lobbyists – the relationship between:
- dairy and disease – particularly cancer
- sugar and disease
- flour products and disease
- meat and meat products and disease
- constipation, junk food and degenerative diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes etc.
- systemic constipation as opposed to colonic constipation
- red meat, dairy, sugar, flour, constipation and degenerative disease
What the public doesn’t know is the extent to which the food industry has gone with the federal government to ensure that the public’s health is sabotaged to protect business interests. Essentially, the lobbyists have had sanctions put in place that deny funding of any research that would harm the processed food industry including and especially the dairy and meat industries. That's why the dairy industry can still tell magnificent lies in the media about how wonderful drinking milk is.
There’s no doubt that if the public were told the truth about the real harm the food most people eat and if that food were banned from store shelves, we would have an economic crises that would rattle all the way to most farmers’ front door.
Most farms in Canada make their money by supplying produce that eventually becomes junk food. Hardly any agricultural effort is made by comparison to produce real food.
You might think the food scientists and technologists who work for these businesses and the scientists who are working so diligently in our universities are cognizant of this situation but guess what? They’re just as ignorant as everyone else!
So you might by forgiven if you think that someone somewhere in some official capacity is looking out for your health and that of your family. If that’s what you think, then you are absolutely wrong.
I call that an abdication of responsibility and a crime by omission. The entire medical community must bear responsibility, but then so to must our politicians because at some point, it has to be obvious that a ballooning health care budget is a numbers issue that can’t lie. Something is totally screwed up with how we run health care in Canada.
In answer to that earlier question about where the lawsuits would come from, my guess is that once the public becomes fully informed as to the magnitude of the dereliction of duty foisted on the general public, lawsuits will be generated by those whose lives have been ruined by doctors who should have known or did know and didn’t say anything to their patients.
This is what the Criminal Code has to say on the matter:
DUTIES TENDING TO THE PRESERVATION OF LIFE
DUTY OF PERSONS UNDERTAKING ACTS DANGEROUS TO LIFE
216. Every one who undertakes to administer surgical or medical treatment to another person or to do any other lawful act that may endanger the life of another person is, except in cases of necessity, under a legal duty to have and to use reasonable knowledge, skill and care in so doing.
When you're in hospital, medical treatment includes the food you are given. The thing is, virtually no-one understands the consequences of being given the wrong food at the wrong time. The cause and effect are plain enough if you know what to look for. But in order to see the relationship, you have to be looking. Looking is not something modern doctors are skilled at - especially when it comes to food. That is precisely why obesity is such a problem and why so many doctors have become enamored of this cash cow. There is no intent by the medical profession to kill this golden goose. Let's face it, who in their right mind would end such a profitable income stream?
It isn’t just the weight loss aspect. Being over weight causes problems for every single cell in the body. The potential and reality of something going wrong are in ecstatic harmony where the medical profession are concerned because there’s a limitless opportunity for inventing new diseases, drugs, surgical techniques and so on. Millions of people’s careers are fueled by people who can’t be bothered to learn how to eat vegetables and fruit in the proper quantities while at the same time ending the gluttonic romance with dairy, fat, sugar, flour and meat.
I was once in Centenary Hospital for kidney stone surgery. The man in the next bed, a teacher, had cracked ribs and other complications from an accident. He was also suffering from a bronchial infection. The food he was given by the hospital was heavily dairy oriented and consequently he was coughing trying to catch his breath and horking up lots of phlegm. Since he had those cracked ribs, the coughing was causing him a lot of pain so there were plenty of other annoying and completely unnecessary sound effects.
Eventually I was so sick of his hacking that I asked him why he didn't ask for some lemon and water. He had no idea what I was talking about. I explained the astringent effect of lemons. He had never heard of such a thing. I explained how lemon in a finger bowl works. It isn't a quantum leap to figure out that if lemon in a finger bowl will rinse pork and beef fat from your fingers that lemon would also rinse mucus from your throat. This is not rocket science. He agreed to try it. By this time it was late at night and the night staff said there was no lemon available.
Once more I explained to the night nurse how lemon and water works. It was news to him too but he agreed to run across the street to a shop that was still open and buy a lemon to see if it worked. Of course it did and my neighbour slept soundly for the rest of the night.
When I woke up the next morning I discovered my neighbour, a total nitwit if there ever was one, was ploughing through a bowl of cereal and milk to be followed by a coffee with milk. I was pretty angry and I gave him a verbal drubbing right there in front of his family. He apologized and started hacking again in the middle of it.
He was discharged that morning still coughing. After he was gone I asked to see the General Manager of the hospital. I wanted an explanation of why this man had intentionally been abused with dairy products. The General Manager didn't show up but the assistant General Manager did. I gave her the same verbal drubbing. She apologized as well but claimed there was nothing in the medical literature on the subject. I told her that was absolutely no excuse for maintaining an abusive policy that causes obvious harm to a patient to a patient that any mental midget who had ever eaten at Swiss Chalet could figure out was helped with a lemon. She had no answer for that and as you know, the medical profession has still not learned the healing properties of the common lemon.
On that front medical science stopped learning back in the 18th century when Europeans became the last major population on the planet to discover that eating fruit cures scurvy. In the last nearly two hundred years the medical community has been sitting on its hands on that subject. What we are faced with is a profession that is not only profoundly ignorant of a subject about which they are legally required to be experts but as you can see by Sunnybrook Hospital's responses to me that there is no willingness to learn, to try, to heed advice. In other words, professional fear of lawsuits, government research sanctions and common stupidity has brought the entire profession to a standstill in this vital aspect of human physiology.
In other words, the medical profession has come to a dead end and should be relieved of its legal strangle hold over nutritionists and dieticians. This's likely the only professional sector where from a knowledge base, the tail wags the dog and in this case, the tail is vestigial at best.
Back to the Criminal Code:
219.(1) Every one is criminally negligent who(a) in doing anything, or(b) in omitting to do anything that it is his duty to do, shows wanton or reckless disregard for the lives or safety of other persons.
What’s missing from the public’s protection is the science to link the food or beverage in its intended form to the consequences of having consumed it in the manner in which it was intended to be consumed. This is an important point elsewhere in the Criminal Code and is directly applicable to the food industry.
The maintenance of that glaring omission is one of the main reasons why there are such people as food lobbyists. One of their main purposes is to steer attention and money in the form of grants away from the scientists who would expose the food industry for what it is – a network of businesses engaged in activities that should be and would be crimes if there was stipulated defining knowledge about food impacts.
In this sense it should be clear that other than the organic side of the industry that’s as yet microscopic, most of the food business in business to kill people as slowly as possible while extracting the most money possible from them. Nobody but me would say that in public but that's the bald truth.
Their own families and themselves are presumably victims. What that tells you is that no-one wants to know for fear of the harm such knowledge will do. It also tells you the true nature of the people who run the food business - they are perfectly happy to condemn their own families with fake foods and beverages.
Unfortunately, at this point in human history, the human world is at the point of social, economic and environmental collapse due to dishonest economic practices (the food industry is part of it) and an inability to face facts and make common sense adjustments to our course while there may be still time to avoid disaster.
We have too many people like the fossilized Dr. McCellan in decision making positions who either have too much to lose to timely change or are too slow witted to understand the urgent need and act accordingly.
A further part of this mental stagnation is the vast waste of arable land and water used for growing junk food. In the U.S. in particular, massive water resources are being expended to irrigate crops that are expressly formulated to make people obese, thus sick and in short order addicted to the food products. The sugar industry is heavily implicated in this.
One of my friends is the grandson of the late ower of Wilsons Ginger Ale – once a major manufacturer and bottler of soft drinks in Canada. According to my friend, the saying in the family was that “when in doubt about a drink recipe; add sugar.”
Doubtless, that is the philosophy behind most junk food recipes and a large segment of the fake health food on store shelves today including Health Food stores. The only real health food stores are those that sell vegetables and fruit.
But even that isn’t the entire story…
