Nutrition As Medicine

There has been a remarkable change in medical attitudes towards nutrition. For the first time in history, on august 19th, 1992 the ultra- conservative Journal of the American Medical Association recommend vitamin supplements to prevent atherosclerosis and heart disease.

The highly respected New England Journal of Medicine followed in May 1993 by publishing two large population studies, involving 130,000 health workers, showing that high doses of vitamin E significantly reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes in men and women. The researchers showed that it was almost impossible to get sufficient vitamin E from our food and made a clear recommendation for vitamin E supplements, with the agreement of the Journal’s conservative editors. They boosted the recommendation with a special editorial by Dr Daniel Steinberg of the University of California, in which he reviewed the lack of toxicity of vitamin E.

Then the scholarly journal, Nutrition Reviews, the bible of nutrition science used by researchers themselves, showed that it is impossible to get sufficient vitamins from our degraded food supply and criticized the FDA for not allowing companies to tell the public how vitamins prevent cancer.

The New England Journal of Medicine concurred with a large study of 89,000 female nurses, followed for 8 years. The research showed that nurses who took 30% more vitamin A than the RDA, had significantly less risk of breast cancer.

The Journal of the American Medical Assiciation published a study by Dr. Charles Butterworth of the University of Alabama School of Medicine. The study showed clearly that women with unsufficient intake of the B vitamin folate, had no resistance to the papilloma virus that causes cervival cancer. Folate deficiency, very common in America, was shown to be a worse risk for cervival cancer than smoking.

These are some samples of the hundreds of reports in mainstream

medical journals showing that decent nutrition, including vitamin and

mineral supplementation is a major force in preventing a wide range of degenerative diseases, including cancers, cardiovascular diseases, adult-onset diabetes and many liver, kidney, skin, eye and other organ disorders. Read the medical references and be convinced to take care of your nutrition for life.

There are also negative reports about vitamins. They get unfair media coverage, because the powerful pharmaceutical advertisers don’t like media that support non-patentable vitamins to prevent illness as they rely on a growing number of people who become dependent on patented prescription drugs.

Media are being cleverly manipulated to misinterpret a study appearing in the New England Journal of Medicine. This study, sponsored by the US National Cancer Institute examined the effects of beta-carotene and vitamin E on 29,000 smokers, aged 50 and above over a period of 3 to 5 years. The reports of researchers showed no evidence of a decrease in lung cancer risk.

The widely quoted comments about this study by Dr. Gilbert Omenn, Dean of Public Health of the University of Washington, are particularly disturbing. Hopefully, Dr. Omenn was misquated when he stated that the study applies to healthy people, “because smokers are getting the

same diseases as the rest of us.”

The study has no application whatoever to healthy people and little application even to smokers. Study subjects were all long-term heavy smokers, averaged 57.2 years old, smoking 20 cigarets per day for 35 years on average.

Most cancers grow slowly for many years, before any symptoms

appear.The disease processes caused by smoking were already well advanced in these men before the study began. To give them a small dosis of vitamins and expect a cure is not sensible. It’s like taking aspirin to cure a rotting tooth, by comparison.

The media reports fail to publish the amounts of vitamins used. The 50mg of synthetic dl-alpha tocopherol acetate per day in the study (50 IU), is a tiny amount and the poor synthetic form to boot. By comparison,a bowl of wheatgerm cerial contains about 20 IU of vitamin E.

A recent review of all the major studies in the conservative Journal of the American Dietetic Association recommended 200 – 800 IU of vitamin E per day for health protection. And that applies to non-smokers.

Similarly, the 20 mg of beta-carotene (33,320 IU) per day in the study gives very little protection against the massive disease processes already at work in subjects who have smoked heavily for many years. The amount of 20 mg of beta-carotene is the same as in two large carrots.

Smoking is a deadly practice. It is stated on the cigarette packets: “Smoking Causes Lung Cancer.” Please note; it does not state: ‘might’ or ‘can’ cause lung cancer, but it does…..period!!

It is ridiculous to suggest that you can stop this disease process with a couple of carrots a day.

The National Cancer Institute, a two billion dollar institution, does not want its power and income being eroded by cancer prevention strategies that the public can use by themselves.

If you don’t believe me, check out the activities of the N C I by getting “The Politics of Cancer” by Samuel Epstein, Professor of Medicine at the University of Illinois. Dr. Epstein shows clearly how ineffective our cancer health authorities really are today!.
