The least expensive foods are often the most healthful foods.

One atom of calcium IN TIME can do more than a million out of time.

And one atom of fluorine IN TIME can actually protect against fluoridation. [1]

Jet lag? Don’t be a victim of lung lag. Or large intestine lag. Or stomach lag.

Or spleen lag. Or heart lag. Or small intestine lag.

Or bladder lag. Or kidney lag. Or pericardium lag.

Or thyroid lag. Or gall bladder lag. Or liver lag.

Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) said …

“Health is a conditional timing of the movement of fluids and solids through the mechanism. Health is not something you can buy in the store.”

Michael Pollan wrote …

“If you’re concerned about your health, then you should probably avoid food products that make health claims, Why? Because the whole ideology of superfoods is misleading, for consumers and scientists alike.”

.. and …

“The problem with nutrient-by-nutrient science is that it takes the nutrient out of the context of food, the food out of the context of diet, and the diet out of the context of lifestyle,” [2]

Caroline Stacey wrote …

“The chlorophyll of which wheatgrass boasts is not absorbed by the body and if it was, ‘wouldn’t be good for us,’ says [Jeremy] Spencer. A 30g serving of cooked spinach or broccoli or a portion of garden salad contains more vitamins and minerals than a shot of the grass-green juice, and you’ll get fibre too.”

… and …

“Eating a mixture of foods is important because the nutrients may work in combination to protect against certain diseases. ‘There is always nutrient interaction,’ says dietician Jacqui Lowdon, spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association. ‘I’d like to label all fruit and vegetables as superfoods.’ Although some foods may undoubtedly prove high in certain micronutrients measured in a test tube, it’s what happens when you eat them that counts. The body only absorbs a fraction and any more than it needs will be expelled or could become toxic, Spencer explains. So you could literally be pissing away the fortune you just spent on rare berries.” [3]

Amelia Hill wrote …

“[Jeremy] Spencer points to the case of beta carotene which, eaten in its natural form, appears to work as an anti-oxidant, killing the free radicals in our bodies which can damage DNA and initiate cancers. When the compound was separated by scientists and ingested as a dietary supplement, however, it was found to increase the risk of certain cancers.”

… and …

“The commonly held assumption that a 30ml shot of wheatgrass juice is nutritionally equivalent to a kilogram of vegetables is a complete myth. A floret or two of broccoli, or a tablespoon of spinach, contain more folic acid and vitamin C than 30ml of wheatgrass juice. Chlorophyll is not absorbed into the body (or else we would all look an attractive shade of green), and its supposed high levels are no higher than other green vegetables.” [4]

    Hi Atom,

    i am learning so much from your blogs on what i thought was true etc…and you keep hitting the ball out of the park! – expanding boundaries…..

    i wanted to ask is an L-Theanine supplement a morning thing?-it is supposed to help with clarity and anxiety.

    and did you mention before not to take 5HTP?

    Kind Regards,

    Martin

      (1) L-theanine is extracted from the tea plant, making it a midday supplement.

      It seems to be OK as far as supplements go.

      (2) 5-HTP doesn’t seem to have any side effects if used correctly.

      I avoid it because I don’t do drugs unless absolutely necessary.

      The last time I took an aspirin was in 1957.

    Hi Atom, which is the best way to turn, to skip a meal and not eat at all or to eat something out of time? The situation comes up for me in particular at night time. I know Adano said not to skip meals very often.
    Thanks,
    Janice

      Eat something out of time, but eat a smaller portion. :)

    Any thoughts on Rob Rhinehart’s Soylent Food Substitute Creation? Is this the zombie apocalypse? Why are we so infatuated with the end? As Linkin Park says in their last album song “We’re building it up, to break it back down…”

      Rob Rhinehart is only 24. He will get away with drinking his chemical concoction for at least six or so years, maybe more.

      Humans are not labelled omnivores for nothing!

      Marc Lallanilla (“Who Needs Food When You Have Soylent,” Live Science, March 14, 2013) wrote …

      “A fundamental flaw in Rhinehart’s plan is his assumption that the human body needs only chemicals & elements to survive.”
