Good Day Dear Readers,
A while ago I distributed an email with the subject – ‘Food’ containing this site. There is some good logic on food and food sources.
Some important points I would like to touch on regarding this.
I’ll not be convinced about the dangers of eating ‘non-organic’ produced food until someone presents me with the comparative chemical analysis of the following: This assuming the funds to do this can be obtained. Those organizations that produce organic foods and make such claims should be willing to do this, namely supply the funds. Furthermore the analysis must be done by unbiased independent laboratories – not one, but a few. [This is probably a hopeless hope.]
1 – Vegetables and fruits grown organically and non-organically under the same optimum conditions, this includes the nutrients needed to produce the product .The only difference being organic and non-organic.
2 – Meat produced using/under the same principles; namely fed organically non-organically –
For a plant or animal to grow it needs an optimum supply of nutrients. The question being asked is; does it make a difference where/if the absolute (optimum supply) of Energy, Nitrogen, Sulphur, Oxygen and Minerals etc., comes from. Neither the plant nor animal will grow and produce a viable structure if just one nutrient is missing. From research, as well as my own, this is a fact.
The organic organisations say these produced under non-organic conditions are unhealthy. Prove it without bias.
My own experience is that fifteen years after I had been doing research and a PhD in Biochemistry/Molecular Biology, I ended up working in the field of nutrition. There my work entailed investigating the value of optimum nutrition in meeting the stress of ill health in animals, and then personally with humans for some 40 years. In animal nutrition I was afforded the opportunity of working with a fantastic team of animal scientists and veterinarians (EPOL – Animal Feed Company in South Africa) and leaning the skills of the feeding of animals (poultry, swine, dogs, and ruminants, you name it).
All good things come to an end for various reasons. I then applied the lessons I’d learnt in the feeding of animals for optimum health, and so slipped into investigating this in human nutrition. In the ensuing years I to some extent applied these principles personally, but not to the extent of preventing and meeting some of my own health problems. I then realized I should use these personally and seemingly with success. This is covered in my Cancer Story; a story I’ll cover in following blog-posts. So do check back regularly.
All the best, Len
