A Diet Deficiency Today is a Clinical Event Tomorrow


For those of us that understand nutrition and it'simportance in our lives, this statement makes all toomuch sense doesn't it?

Today, six out of the top ten causes of death are dietrelated and chronic degenerative diseases afflict over120 million Americans. Cancer has moved from theeighth leading cause of death to number two, even afterRichard Nixon's "War on Cancer" spent thirty billiondollars attempting to find a cure. Diabetes hasincreased 700% since 1959.

Nearly 15 million American adults suffer from asthmaand the Environmental Health Commission predicts thatnumber will increase to 29 million by 2020. Twenty-onemillion Americans suffer from arthritis andapproximately 50 million Americans suffer fromautoimmune diseases, with 75 percent of these beingfemale. Many of these autoimmune conditions werepractically nonexistent thirty years ago.

Look at the average diet of children today--softdrinks, processed cereal, pizza, candy, fast food andtheir favorite and often only source of vegetables:french fries. Could this be why we are seeing adramatic rise in ADHD, to the point where 8 millionAmerican children need to be drugged daily? Autism hasgone from 1 in 10,000 children to 1 in 150 in just 10years. Adult- onset diabetes is occurring at epidemicrates in children as young as eight.

NEW HEADLINES IN MEDICAL RESEARCH

There can be no doubt that deficiencies of these vitalnutrients can lead to serious problems. Scientists arecontinually discovering new links between viruses,bacteria and the immune system and many of the mostcommon and most dangerous diseases. Take a look; youmight be surprised at what they're learning about theimportance of a strong, balanced immune system.

"Are Viruses and Bacteria the Real Cause of Heart andKidney Disease?"...In the August 2000 issue of theAmerican Journal of Medicine, scientists reported thatthe hepatitis C virus could show up as a kidneyinfection or as heart disease. Last year, Italianresearchers reported that the reason cholesteroldeposits stick to the walls of arteries might be due toan undetected infection that inflames blood vesselwalls.

"Are Bacteria to Blame for MS?"...The July 1999 issueof Annals of Neurology reported that a common bacteriacalled Chlamydia pneumoniae was present in all thepatients tested in the study with multiple sclerosis(MS). In addition, 30 percent of people with MS alsoharbor the herpes virus.

"Epilepsy Linked to Abnormal Immune Cells"...In 1997, agroup of scientists looked at a total of 135 peoplewith epilepsy. More than 80 percent of these peoplehad one or more abnormalities in their cellular immunedefenses.

"Alzheimer's Disease Linked to Immune SystemDysfunction"...An article in a 1994 issue of Progressin Drug Research reported that Alzheimer's disease maybe linked to an abnormal antibody response to a portionof nerve cells in the brain.

"A Hidden Virus that Causes Obesity"...Researchers atthe Department of Nutrition and Food Science at WayneState University in Detroit reported in August 2001that increased fat stores have been linked to thepresence of a virus.

"Is Arthritis Really a Joint Infection?"...Dutchscientists recently reported that chronic arthritismight have a bacterial connection. In fact, if yousuffer from rheumatoid arthritis, which is consideredan autoimmune disease, your disease may have beentriggered by a prior infection that may have overstimulated immune responses, which in this situation,needed to be suppressed.

"Is Male Infertility Due to E. Coli Bacteria Stickingto Sperm?"...A German study in the July 1993 issue ofFertility and Sterility reported that e. coli canactually adhere to sperm causing them to clumptogether.

And if you do a search on the Internet you will findmore of these types of headlines all over the place.It's just amazing, sad actually, and scary.Copyright 2004 S. Lueck
