Organic Beets Can’t Be Beat
According to Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) …
“Beetroot is a good food for people who easily get worms. When the beetroot gets to the intestine, the worms get upset; they are paralysed and are then eliminated in the stools.”
According to the same source …
“Beetroot does not poison us but it poisons the worms. And again the situation is, and you can find this out, that plant roots eaten at full moon have greater power to drive out worms.”
This advice was given in 1924, before the advent of nitrogen fertilizers, so using organic beets is important.
Beets are addicted to nitrogen, and suck it up and overload on it like gangbusters.
Beets are nitrogen accumulators, along with alfalfa, amaranth leaf (not the grain), celery, corn, eggplant, lettuce, oats, radish, sorghum, spinach, wheat, etc.
Unprincipled or misled health gurus are claiming that nitrogen accumulation is a good thing, and the basis of the performance-enhancing effect of beet juice.
The power behind the drone of beets is its natural sugar — twice as much as corn, carrots, or tomatoes, according to Mother Earth News, Apr. 2004.
Nitric oxide used to be a primary pollutant in photochemical smog — now it’s supposed to be a longevity agent, protecting blood vessels, reducing inflammation, and inducing penile erections.
It’s exactly the opposite.
Nitric oxide is a free radical extensively involved in the aging process, including inflammation, high blood pressure, and “boner kill.”
The takeaway is …
Beetroot is an awesome food as long as it’s not grown with nitrogen fertilizer.
Half the world eats foods spawned with nitrogen fertilizer. It’s a boon for the fracking industry, but a plague upon the Earth.
