As always, a great thread by SC
One of the problems is that there are so few real doctors nowdays. There is very little nutritional training in med school, and docs are all steered
towards 'medicinal' solutions. Unfortunately for those who trust the medical industry like my stepfather, there is no health problem that was ever
caused by the lack of a pharmaceutical chemical.
When I was 5 or 6, I had a vitamin defeciency that caused me to go into red rages. I literally 'saw red' and became quite violent. I remember it
quite distinctly. Our wonderful GP, Dr. Speigel, (God rest her soul) actually took the time to do a blood analysis and found the problem. With the
proper suppliment the problem vanished and never returned. Today I would probably be given some psychoactive drug, labeled for life,
and put on
the short bus.
As for the epidemic of sex crimes in our society today, I believe it is more mental than physical in cause. As someone who began having sex (or
trying to) way before puberty, I have spent a lifetime investigating in an attempt to understand the origin of my sexuality which put briefly, is open
to just about anything. I have concluded that pre-pubescent exposure to sexual images, situations and behaviors have a profound effect on the
development of young people. Some more than others of course, which accounts for the genetic factor. I'm no puritan or prude by any means, but I do
believe we do our children a great disfavor by exposing them to the hypersexuality that has become the norm in our culture, and which reached a truely
effecting level in the early 70's. To put too fine a point on it, I believe you can trace a lot of sexual psychosis to an excess of sexual content
in young childrens lives. I believe that pre-pubescent sexual contact in particular has a profound effect on how the mind will direct the emotions
that come with puberty. I lived as a gay man in the gay community for many years. I asked every one of my gay friends about thier childhood
experiences. Most had a story of pre-pubescent experiences, many with older males. Those that didn't had an absent or abusive father who's love
(often unknown to themselves) they were seeking in other men. Anecdotal yes, but surely not without worth.
As for diabetes, do a search on alloxin, the FDA apporved chemical that's used to bleach flour, and induce diabetes in lab rats.
