Health Care: an Industrial Commodity in a Free Market!

Once again I am back on the trail of “Health Care”, to unveil the true ugly face of “progress” and to show the brutal ways and devious means by which “Scientific Research” is arming itself to render us, the unaware and defenceless daily hardworking common citizens, as its complementary laboratory guinea-pigs needed for an unimaginable large scale experimentation purposes.
In previous posts, I presented you to the “Biphosphonates” and their proven damaging effects on human health, yet doctors around the world (except for the USA and Canada) continue to prescribe them; in a second post I stripped naked the hazards of the “Genetically Modified Organisms” for not only they are seriously exposing our health and that of our line to grave jeopardy FOREVER, but as well they are ruining our planet’s environment by their uncontrolled hazardous interference within the inner structures of nature’s life cycles.
In a third post I synthesised the forgotten case of Rene Caisse, the Canadian nurse who, in the twenties of last century, discovered, tested and proved the “EISSAC” as the valid cure for cancer. But, since “Modern Man” has created and worshiped a new divinity and master he calls “Profit”, the International Scientific Community spared no cost, financial or political, to defame her and sacrifice her documented valuable discoveries on the altar of “Business”.
Today I will start a series of four posts to explore the alarming effects that “Sugar” poses to our health. Based on sound scientific references (listed as the foot-notes of that series last article), I will show you the gravity of the daily risk we are unconsciously taking when we insist to consume sugar like pathetic drug addicts; and you will see how the “Sugar Industrial Cartels” have been using all their might to create new ways to “Push” their products into our daily needs and those of our children.
I will give you that  dark history of today’s financial and industrial lobbies of the world's reigning sugar cartels. I shall reveal how sugar trade evolved from being the heart of slavery in the 18th century, to that elegant preacher converting present-day consumers into active addicted slaves driven towards a carefully planned sugar-based diet, regardless of the profound damage refined sugar inflicts not only on human physical and mental health, but also has been proven lethal for animals whereas low cost sugar penetrates their daily feeding nutrients.
I invite you to follow me in this quest, if you hold dear your health and that of your family, and if you still treasure the planet earth which God entrusted us to use and develop, not to abuse and destroy.
(1) The Hidden Story of Big Sugar
Of all the foods consumed today, “Refined Sugar”  is considered to be one of the most harmful.
In 1957, Dr William Coda Martin tried to answer this question: “When is a food a food and when is it a poison?”.
His working definition of “poison” was:
·         Medically: Any substance applied to the body, ingested or developed within the body, which causes or may cause disease.
·         Physically: Any substance which inhibits the activity of a catalyst which is a minor substance, chemical or enzyme that activates a reaction."
·         The dictionary gives an even broader definition for “poison”: “to exert a harmful influence on, or to pervert”.
Refined sugar contains no fiber, no minerals, no proteins, no fats, no enzymes, only empty calories. What happens when you eat a refined carbohydrate like sugar? Your body must borrow vital nutrients from healthy cells to metabolize the incomplete food. Calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium are taken from various parts of the body to make use of the sugar. Many times, so much calcium is used to neutralize the effects of sugar that the bones become osteoporotic due to the withdrawn calcium. Likewise, the teeth are affected and they lose their components until decay occurs and hastens their loss.
Refined sugar is void of all nutrients, consequently it causes the body to deplete its own stores of various vitamins, minerals and enzymes. If sugar consumption is continued, an over-acid condition results, and more minerals are needed from deep in the body to correct the imbalance. If the body is lacking the nutrients used to metabolize sugar, it will not be able to properly handle and rid itself of the poisonous residues. These wastes accumulate through the brain and nervous system, which speeds up cellular death. The bloodstream becomes over-loaded with waste products and symptoms of carbonic poisoning result.
Sugar also makes the blood very thick and sticky, inhibiting much of the blood flow into the minute capillaries that supply our gums and teeth with vital nutrients. Therefore, we wind up with diseased gums and starving teeth.
Diabetes is another commonly known disease caused by sugar as well as a high fat diet. Diabetes is caused by the failure of the pancreas to produce adequate insulin when the blood sugar rises. A concentrated amount of sugar introduced into the system sends the body into shock from the rapid rise in the blood sugar level. The pancreas eventually wears out from overwork and diabetes then rears its ugly head.
Hypoglycemia occurs when the pancreas overreacts to the large amount of sugar in the blood and releases too much insulin leaving one with the “tired” feeling as the blood sugar level becomes lower than it should be.
Another serious problem with sugar, that is now coming to the forefront, is the various levels of mental problems. Our brains are very sensitive and react to quick chemical changes within the body. As sugar is consumed, our cells are robbed of their B vitamin, which destroys them, and insulin production is inhibited.
Low insulin production means a high sugar (glucose) level in the bloodstream, which can lead to a confused mental state or unsound mind, and has also been linked with juvenile criminal behaviour.
Dr. Alexander G. Schauss, brings this solemn fact out in his book,
Diet, Crime and Delinquency. Many mental ward and prison inmates are “sugarholics” and erratic emotional outbreaks often follow a sugar binge.
Dr. David Reuben, author of “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Nutrition” says, “…white refined sugar-is not a food. It is a pure chemical extracted from plant sources, purer in fact than cocaine, which it resembles in many ways. Its true name is sucrose and its chemical formula is C12H22O11.
Through heating and mechanical and chemical processing, all vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, enzymes and indeed every nutrient is removed until only the sugar remains. Sugar cane and sugar beets are first harvested and then chopped into small pieces, squeezing out the juice, which is then mixed with water. This liquid is then heated, and lime is added. Moisture is boiled away, and the remaining fluid is pumped into vacuum pans to concentrate the juice. By this time, the liquid is starting to crystallize, and is ready to be placed into a centrifuge machine where any remaining residues (like molasses) are spun away. The crystals are then dissolved by heating to the boiling point and passed through charcoal filters.
After the crystals condense, they are bleached snow-white usually by the use of pork or cattle bones. During the refining process, 64 food elements are destroyed. All the potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, manganese, phosphate, and sulfate are removed. The A, D, and B, vitamins are destroyed. Amino acids, vital enzymes, unsaturated fats, and all fiber are gone. To a lesser or greater degree, all refined sweeteners such as corn syrup, maple syrup, etc., undergo similar destructive processes. Molasses is the chemical and deranged nutrients that is a byproduct of sugar manufacture”.

If you have any doubts as to the detriments of sugar (sucrose), try leaving it out of your diet for several weeks and see if it makes a difference! You may also notice you have acquired an addiction and experience some withdrawal symptoms. Studies show that sugar is just as habit-forming as any narcotic; and its use, misuse, and abuse is any nation’s number one disaster, just like any synthetic drug pushed on the market as
cocaine, heroin, crack and acids.
One of the keys to orderly brain function is glutamic acid, and this compound is found in many vegetables. When sugar is consumed, the bacteria in the intestines, which manufacture B vitamin complexes, begin to die-these bacteria normally thrive in a symbiotic relationship with the human body. When the B vitamin complex level declines, the glutamic acid (normally transformed into “go”/“no-go” directive neural enzymes by the B vitamins) is not processed and sleepiness occurs, as well as a decreased ability for short-term memory function and numerical calculative abilities. The removal of B vitamins when foods are “processed” makes the situation even more tenuous.
Besides the sugar in gum being damaging to the teeth, there is another harmful problem to consider and that is: “teeth and jaws weren’t designed for more than a few minutes of solid chewing per day,
far less than the two hours clocked in daily by hardcore gum chewers. All this chewing results in inordinate wear on the jawbone, gum tissue and lower molars, and can change the alignment of the jaws” says Michael Elsohn, D.D.S., in the Medical Tribune.
I will close here with some important figures: (I’m bringing here American statistics because they are the only available on hand, however they are a good cursor to feature the enormity of the problem, once we relay to our own country’s nutritive habits and their consequent analytical data).
·         In 1997 Americans devoured 7.3 billion pounds of candy.
·         Americans spent an estimated $23.1 billion dollars on candy and gum.
·         Consumption of processed foods (which are laced with sugar) cost the American public more than $54 billion in dental bills each year (almost the double of the amount spent buying candy and gum), so the dental industry reaps huge profits from the programmed addiction of the public to sugar products.
·         Today the average person consumes his/her weight in sugar, plus over 20 pounds of corn syrup.
That is enough for today, and I will continue in the coming post unclosing the secrets of refined sugar and its effects on us. See you then, but don’t forget to Pass On the Word.
