ADEQUATE SUPPLY OF MICRONUTRIENTS NEEDED FOR ORGANISM FUNCTIONING – (07-09-07)By
Low Micronutrient Intake May Accelerate the Degenerative Diseases of Aging Through Allocation of Scarce Micronutrients by Triage
I would have to admit that through government mandating fortification of foods that we do okay on some of the basic stuff. Calcium, folic acid, vitamin C (at least enough to prevent scurvy), thiamine…. But it ends there. Our food is so processed that the redox potential of phytonutrients and many micronutrients are gone. This leaves our diet sufficient to keep us alive for a few years, but woefully prepared for a lifetime of health.
So, basically, one theory purports that, in the absence of an adequate supply of micronutrients, the body will allocate these resources to functions that will keep us alive for today while NOT performing functions designed to keep the organism functioning at top capacity.
