In the 20th century, uninformed medical bureaucrats, who controlled health care, ignored Nature. They considered our dependence on the natural world as out-dated and human science as all powerful.The result is strikingly before our eyes. Man-made chemicals and technology have transformed our bodies and our environment into pools of decay. Fortunately, most of these men are now prematurely old.They are dying off and being replaced by better educated and therefore humbler scientists who realize that human beings and their health are inextricably linked to the health of their environment and the nutrients it provides.We are entering the most enlightend era in human history. Medical science is finally accepting that Nature made all the locks and hold all the keys. |
Miraculous Order When we want to take advantage of this new science,we should first understand how tightly our body is locked into Nature. At the beginning, on the second day of creation, in the Archean era 400 million years ego, a miraculous combination of gases produced a few simple bacteria.According to the late physicist Dick Feynman,it could not have been a random event. The best way to describe this phenomenon as a scientist is this: a hand of intelligence, you can call it the hand of God,reached into the chaos and the precise order of life was born.
At that time the atmosphere of the earth was 98 percent carbon dioxide, plus a little methane and nitrogen. There was almost no oxygen. The Archean bacteria began to "breathe" the carbon dioxide and produce oxygen as a waste product, as plants still do today. They multiplied across the face of the earth. Over countless millennia, the carbon dioxide dwindled to its present fraction of 1 percent and the atmosphere grew oxygen rich to its present 21 percent.
Human life became possible because of this abundance of oxygen, but as a consequence, it poisoned the atmosphere for the bacteria that made it.They had to move to environments that are oxygen free. Today their progeny live on in the oxygen free slime of river mud and in the darkest recesses of the human gut.
These bacteria, that eons ago laid the groundwork for the creation of man, continue to support our life by their biological role in our intestines, together with about 40 other species of bacteria, with a total weight of approximately equal of that of our brain. Without them, we would degenerate and die. This prime example of our dependence on ancient creatures emphasize the precision of the design that binds together all life on Earth.
Natural Locks We are locked into nature by a lot more than the oxygen ancient creatures created and their function in our gut.The shells of the bodies of ancient marine life grew the calcium of our bones and then became the soils from which the plants and animals we use as food now obtain their calcium. All the elements of our flesh have been precisely shaped and refined in this way in the bodies of thousands of creatures before us.
The sulphur in the proteins that comprise half the dry weight of our body, is taken from the soil by plants and washed into rivers by runoff.But why is it never depleted? Because of a minute phytoplankton that blooms in uncountable profusion over thousands of square miles of oceans. Every day, Emiliana huxleyii produces millions of tons of dimethyl sulfide, which rises in evaporation of the surface water of the seas and seeds the clouds with sulphur, which then precipitates on the land in rain. Without this Emilana, most of mankind would sicken and die.
We can track the course of nutrients through the ocean, the air, the soil, the plants and through our body and back into the ocean again. To the extent that this journey is unpolluted by toxic compounds, and undisturbed by food processing, the nutrients themselves and the bodies that grow from them, remain healthy. To the extent that we deplete the nutrients, foul the air, pollute the water, degrade the soils and contaminate the oceans, then our bodies are depleted and contaminated as well and pays the price in inevitable degeneration and disease.
