without complete and optimal supplementation is suicide!
Everyone 'knows' the medical dogma that 'exercise is good for you'. Now, as Paul Harvey says, "You're going to hear the rest of the story!"
complete and optimal supplementation is suicide! After this bombshell, I will give you
enough food for thought to gauge the value and the hazards of
exercise for yourself. For the past four years, I have crisscrossed
America lecturing for 300 days a year. I've taken up the daily
task of reading five to ten national and local newspapers and
magazines (and international if I can get them). Using these
sources, I have been able to 'connect the dots'. I can see a
true picture of health (or lack of it) in America without having
to do surveys or studies that would bridge hundreds of years
and squander millions of taxpayer dollars.
Growing up in rural Missouri
with the agricultural industries, I saw as a teenager that we
were very systematically putting vitamins, primary and trace
minerals, in animal feeds to prevent disease. This is not because
we are altruistic, but because we are market driven. We don't
have a 'major medical plan' for calves and chickens. If we were
to use a human health care system for them, your hamburger would
cost you $275 a pound. We also learned that 'working and producing
animals' need added nutrients 'above and beyond' to support them
during 'production time' to maintain their muscle and organ systems.
As a postdoctoral fellow at Washington University, I worked on
a $7.5 million training grant to cross-educate 30 young scientists
to do research. We learned the language of each other's specialties
- math, molecular biology, pathology, medicine, engineering,
anthropology, forestry, chemistry, computer science. Thus we
all 'knew enough and where' to look for information and studies
in professional journals. We were a 'strike-force of multi-disciplinary
scientists' employed to quickly identify and solve major regional
and world ecological problems with the published information
already on hand.
My job, as a veterinary pathologist,
was to be a comparative pathologist. I studied human and animal
diseases. I was to do autopsies on animals dying of natural causes
in the large zoos, and on humans as well. I was also to find
a species that was ultra sensitive to pollution, one to be used
as a 'biological early warning system'. To make a long story
short, after autopsies on 17,500 animals (454 species) and 3,000
humans, I found that of all the humans and animals who died
from 'natural causes', all died from nutritional diseases.
From these original studies,
I published more than 70 peer reviewed and refereed papers on
nutritional deficiency diseases. I contributed chapters to eight
veterinary and medical texts, and wrote a tome on the comparative
pathology of animals and humans (W.B. Saunders, 1983). Unable
to convince the academic world of the value of nutrition in the
60's, I went back to school for four years and became a primary
care physician. I used everything I'd learned in veterinary nutrition
- and my studies as a postdoctoral fellow - for my human patients
for more than 12 years.
It is important you understand
my academic background to satisfy your logical question, "Where
does this guy come from?" Everyone knows exercise is the
Number One health activity. The unfolding picture in this article
as I 'connect the dots' will make sense as you understand
I've had some very unique scientific and practical background.
About ten years ago, ominous
articles began to appear in the news, medical and vet journals,
as well as pathology journals and ranging from injuries to deaths.
Athletes suffered increased sprains, strains, degenerative joints,
fractures, paralysis, unusual behaviors, fights, rages, drug
and alcohol addictions, anorexia, bulimia, arthritis, diabetes,
cancer, cardiopathy, and ruptured aneurysms.
It's not so surprising young
athletes develop these diseases even though they are 'highly
conditioned'. They have professional trainers, coaches, and nutritionists
hovering over them.
In fact, it's been observed high-output un supplemented athletes,
amateur and professional, are more susceptible to emotional,
traumatic and degenerative diseases than the classic 'couch potato'.

The rationale is simple.
Comparing two fine automobiles, both with no oil or coolant.
Which breaks down first? The one in the garage (couch potato),
or the one doing 70 miles an hour (athlete)? A Mercedes is engineered
to go 300,000 miles before an overhaul. It is clear the garaged
Mercedes will last longer, irrespective of the maintenance. The
'athlete Mercedes' at 70mph would do fine - with simple oil and
coolant. This Mercedes illustration is very easy. There are cases
of famous athletes dying that grab the public's attention.

For each example of a famous
athlete, there are literally hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions
of amateur athletes of all ages that 'fit the profile'. Consider
the case of 40 year old cyclist dead of cardio-myopathy in Jacksonville,
Florida; consider the high school athlete from a backwater town
in Missouri or Oregon who goes berserk, develops diabetes or
dies suddenly on the field of play - those are just as valuable
in 'connecting the dots'.
In 1965 it was proven in animal
studies that the trace mineral selenium was essential to life.
A deficiency of selenium produces a variety of diseases from
cardiomyopathy (in animals 'Mulberry heart disease' or 'white
muscle disease') to muscular dystrophy. Added 37 year-old research
that proved that cardiomyopathy was 100% preventable and in the
early stages of diagnosis cured with selenium supplementation.
In Keshan Province, People's
Republic of China, Keshan disease (cardiomyopathy) killed 13
out of every 1,000 preschool children, teens, and pregnant mothers.
The soil in Keshan is nearly devoid of selenium. In the
1930's, Keshan Disease was thought to be a viral infection. In
the '60s it was thought to be from mold contaminants in stored
grain. It wasn't until 1972, when the World Health Organization
sent a team of pathologists to China to study Keshan Disease,
the mystery was solved.
"There are literally
tens of thousands in America, in all age groups, dying each year
while running. Cardiomyopathy, ruptured cerebral, coronary, or
aortic aneurysm ... it's a shame! All are preventable."
- Dr. Joel Wallach
On the WHO team was a veterinary
pathologist who recognized that Keshan Disease was identical
to 'Mulberry' heart disease in pigs - curable with selenium.
To prove the connection, WHO funded a double blind study in Keshan
of 39,000 school children. With daily selenium supplementation
children's deaths were zero, the others in the (un supplemented)
control group remained unchanged.
A selenium deficiency is worsened
by exercise. Further
damage is caused by polyunsaturated fats and oils found in salad
dressings, frying oils, margarine, and frozen and soft deserts.
It is a sad fact that commercial
animal feed contains optimal amounts of selenium. It is there
specifically to prevent cardiomyopathy. Yet sports medicine physicians,
trainers and coaches remain uninformed.
Much is still made of the 'four
food groups', primarily because of bias in the medical community
against vitamin and mineral supplementation.
Buster Douglas, once heavyweight boxing champion, developed
diabetes and died after a diabetic coma two years after losing
the championship. Adult onset diabetes is caused by chromium
and vanadium deficiencies.
Tanya Harding (skating), Jennifer
Capriotti (tennis) both became sociopathic (i.e. aggression,
drug and alcohol addiction) after years in sports. Deficiencies
of chromium, vanadium, and/or lithium are associated with volatile
behavior, sociopathy, depression, and addictions (especially
Running is often a 'fitness'
curative. Yet numerous world class runners have lost their lives
by not supplementing. Jim Fixx, 'father of joggers', who started
the jogging craze in America, died at the age of 48 following
his fifth cardiomyopathic attack. He purposely did not supplement.
He wanted to prove that running was a 'pure' way to health and
Dr. George Sheehan, medical
editor for Running World Magazine, died at 74 from prostrate
cancer though he ran for 25 years. Dr. Sheehan had no interest
in supplements. "Nutrition, to my mind, occupies an area
somewhere between religion and science, and is a confusing amalgam
of these great subjects," he says.
A National Cancer Institute study
shows that faithful daily use of even a 'small' doubling of the
RDA for beta carotene, vitamin E, and selenium, reduces the
cancer rate by 13 to 21 percent.
There are literally tens of thousands
of people in America, of all ages, who die each year while running
from a ruptured cerebral, coronary, or aortic aneurysm. Aneurysms
were proven to be the result of a copper deficiency in
turkeys in 1957.
Fred LaBeau, 56, a world class runner and founder
of the New York Marathon, and Wilma Rudolph, 54, winner of 3
gold medals in track, both died of brain cancer. Animals placed
on a gallium deficient diet reproduce the same cancer.
A spectacular statistic that
'connects the dots' and completes the picture, is the
last clue to clearly show that exercise
A new study reveals 62% of women
gymnasts (at University level) are anorexic and/or bulimic. Anorexia/bulimia
are a zinc deficiency aggravated by malabsorption, i.e.
Is it genetic, this connection
between gymnasts and eating disorders? I believe not. What is
the common denominator that 'connects the dots' between
an 85 pound gymnast, the lithe runner, the 220 pound heavy weight
boxing champion, and the 6'-11" basketball star? Sweat!
When we perspire, we sweat out
more than just water to cool an overheated body. We sweat out
more than electrolytes (potassium, sodium, and chloride). We
sweat out all 72 of the essential minerals.
If we don't consciously replace
them (the minerals so important to our cell's health) by supplementation
- - we are inviting disaster!
- If we sweat
out all of our selenium during exercise, and don't replace it
by supplementation, we are at high risk of cardiomyopathy.
- If we sweat
out our chromium and vanadium, and don't replace it by supplementation,
we are at high risk of low blood sugar, diabetes, depression,
and antisocial behavior.
- If we sweat out our lithium, and don't
replace with supplementation, we are at high risk of depression,
manic depression, and addictions to drugs and alcohol.
- If we sweat
out our copper, and don't replace with supplementation, we are
at high risk of joint and/or cartilage damage, varicose veins
and fatal aneurysm.
- If we sweat
out our gallium, and don't replace with supplementation, we are
at high risk of brain tumor.
- If we sweat
out our calcium, magnesium, manganese, sulfur, boron, and strontium,
and don't replace with supplementation, we are at high risk of
joint, cartilage, and bone degeneration (arthritis), and hairline
Athletes, especially at University
and professional levels, are supposed to have their tables filled
with the very best foods. Yet the only guarantee they get from
their foods are protein, fats, carbohydrates and calories. Depending
on food for vitamins, minerals, and trace minerals is, at best,
a crap shoot.
Anyone with common sense can
see it. The average person with common sense wouldn't throw their
life away by not supplementing with the known 91 essential
nutrients each day.
Certainly then, the highly conditioned
athlete, who invests time and money in their training and fitness,
would not throw their health or life away by not supplementing
with all the essential nutrients.
Yet the majority of people who
exercise don't supplement. They have bought into the medical
dogma, "-- you don't need to supplement - you get what you
need form the four food groups."
Possibly the proof of their lack
of nutritional knowledge is in their life expectancy, just 58
years for an MD. Physician's are failing to tell their patients
American agricultural soils have been depleted of minerals for
50 years as a result of intensive farming without mineral replacement.
They fail to make the connection that the food on the dinner
plate is anemic. US Anemic Earth states that our farm and range
soils are depleted. It was written in 1936. US population has
doubled in the same period. More recently, Earth Summit in Rio
(1992), reports that American farm and range soils are 85% depleted
of minerals compared with soils of 100 years ago.
There is a clear and present
danger. It is one with potentially fatal effect to each and everyone
of us. We are eating minerally depleted foods.
The plague of illnesses seen
spreading across America? Even the couch potatoes out there,
you aren't getting what you need from your food for minimum health
maintenance. Take heed!
You athletes, Your danger
is hugely magnified by exercise. Take heed!
