Exclamation Obesity Overtakes Hunger As Global Health Concern

Amazingly enough, obesity is overtaking hunger as a global health concern...http://articles.mercola.com/sites/ar...lth-issue.aspx

Obesity is one of the problems that they don’t seem to have an answer for.
Here is an idea brought out by Dr. Joel Wallach who says it is a mineral deficiency and what proof has he got maybe history. Years ago there was no or rare people who were obese so it is not genetic. As a vet he knew just how to fatten up animals to market it was easy just stop their mineral supplements and gives them food with lots of calories. There has been compost piles found from the age of the dinosaurs in that compost there is a minimum of 70 different minerals. The soil today is deficient of most all those minerals. Today a farmer needs to put on fertilizer [minerals] to grow crops and crops only need 9 minerals to grow. It is obvious if you where to put a spoon full of salt or sugar out side the next rain it would be gone and it time it would be in the ocean. Even the fruits and vegetables from 100 years ago had a lot more minerals and vitamins than fruit and vegetables to-day. A funny thing happens when you are deprived of minerals your body starts cravings and you will eat anything to get these minerals it needs.

That makes sense D0ug, the soil is depleted of minerals and many people are probably lacking. Another problem is big advertising, they constantly throw ads for cheese burgers and fried chicken in your face, and a lot of people pig out on fast foods...that will put on the pounds fast. Too many people use food as an emotional crutch also. I can't believe the amount of overweight/obese babies and toddlers, their parents are at fault IMO, and are usually overweight themselves.

Ok so if the soil is mineral deficient in modern times, then doesn't that mean that all of the multivitamins and mineral supplements are of synthetic versions? Because where would the real stuff come from if it's not present in the soil?

There are no synthetic minerals only God can make minerals. They were probably originally dispersed from volcanoes billions of years ago and left a ash all over the world. After millions of years of rain they have been leach out of the soil and there are different veins of minerals like gold which are plentiful one place but not another.
There are also locations where there are compost piles from the dinosaur age that has a lot of these rare minerals 70-80 different minerals. An easy way to see if the minerals are missing go to the local farmer and see if he puts on fertilizer on his crops because plants only need 9 minerals to grow you will find that he has to put three minerals NPK in order to grow his crop so out of 9 there is only 6. Animals need 60 minerals

High fructose corn syrup. It is completely empty calories and can't be used as energy, only stored as fat, and it is an appetite enhancer. They now put it in soft drinks, condiments, sauces, even "energy" drinks (even though it saps your energy and gives you cravings). It's very cheap - cheaper than the other ingredients and can turn anything into a junk food.

One of the problems of fructose (and glucose) metabolism is they both cause and increased rate of excretion of magnesium.
A highly sweetened diet, or one that is based on starchy refined carbohydrates that metabolise to glucose or contain fructose particulary HFCF is they result in magnesium insufficiency and deficiency.
Magnesium controls well over 300 different enzyme actions including the uptake of Vitamin D3, it's conversion to calcidiol (the form we measure in 25(OH)D tests and also the conversion of calcidiol to calcitriol (the active hormonal form)
So not only does magnesium insufficiency lead to the poor functioning of some 300+enzyme actions but also to poorly performing Vitamin d regulation of virtually our entire genome.
