WHY DEFICIENT?

Unfortunately most people today live busy and stressful lifestyles in polluted environments. Pharmaceutical drugs and life's pressures deplete the availability of many important nutrients in our body. Our diet should help replenish the lost nutrients but we have unhealthy diets. The limited amount of fresh foods we do eat is often grown under modern farming techniques in aging soils using chemical fertilizers and hormones that only help grow the vegetables and cattle faster. So we lack the necessary vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and other required substances to remain healthy.

According to U.S. Senate Document 264 written in 1936 on the effects of long-term heavy cropping on depletion of minerals from the soil: “It is bad news to learn from our leading authorities that 99 percent of the American people are deficient in these minerals, and that a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease. Any upset of the balance, any considerable lack of one or another element, however microscopic the body requirement may be, and we sicken, suffer, and shorten our lives."

Things have not improved any since 1936. According to a 2004 report by the Food And Agriculture Organization of The United Nations on the subject of continuous cropping: “the ‘mining’ of soil nutrients is severe, and yields have fallen as nutrients removed by the crops are not replaced.”

Relationship between p53 codon 72 polymorphism and susceptibility to sunburn and skin cancer.
Preliminary studies suggest that a proline or an arginine(p53-72R) may be a risk factor for cervical cancer and, consistent with this, preferential mutation and retention of the p53-72R allele has also been demonstrated in other cancers of squamous cell origin. In the examination, we found a significant positive association between p53-72R and susceptibility to sunburn, as assessed by skin phototype and minimal erythemal dose following solar-simulated radiation.
