I wonder if Tin is ok... I'd hate to have to scrap my cans for bottles...
Actually, we need a little copper in our bodies, it is when the level gets too high that we have problems. You talk about tin, we need that also, we
used to get it from the cans but now the cans are all coated with a resin or plastic instead. Many people are tin deficient today.
When the soils get burnt is when we get problems, they push the land to get every penny they can out of it. This is a problem, then we toss out a
minimum of thirty percent of the food we produce, consumerism has made waste. The secret to some of the better fertilizers is molybdenum, it is in
miracle grow. It helps your plants grow better and boosts their levels of this. I researched some of these more expensive fertilizers a while back
to see what they contained, some seem good. I cannot vouch for the quality of any particular product, just that they do use some things that are
necessary for us and the plants. A little boron added to soil also helps the garden, adding the big three makes the plants use up all the boron.
Liming the soil helps to allow these bound nutrients to be freed some times, but liming to much is not good, you get a few good crops then the soil is
depleted. Leaves help to restore the clays in the soils, they are high in nutrients.
Studying human health means you need to study the health of all the food we eat and try to figure out what is good for the plants and animals we eat.
Something healthy does not necessary mean it is big, a small potato has more nutrients per ounce than a large potato if the potato is grown in good
soils. The small potato seems to have more density to it also if grown on good soils. Same thing applies to any food. Big does not always mean
healthy, especially when seeds are involved. The healthier the seeds reserves the less size it needs. A wild raspberry is smaller as is a wild
blueberry, but their contents are much more concentrated.
A small egg has enough nutrition to hatch a chick, increasing the size of the egg means nothing. A healthy egg no matter what the size produces a
chick. People think that bigger is healthier, they are deceived. It can be better but not necessarily. How does it relate to us, we are what we
eat....If we eat food that is natural and healthy than we will be healthy. Processing of food causes a loss of molybdenum, it has an affinity to iron
and also to oils. remove some oils and the molybdenum goes with it. Mix it with metal blades and it sticks to the blades.
I know a lot about this mineral, we do not need a lot of it, we just need an adequate amount of it that is bioavailable. It gets bound to phytic acid
and also to fiber and can't be absorbed. There is a lot wrong with our food, they are using a system to judge nutrient content that excludes many
things and they are ignoring that lots of these nutrients are bound. Some people have enzymes to get them off of food while others lack the enzymes
in the body. They kill the enzymes with heat, but some of these can be reinstated using certain cooking practices that I am studying. Seems like the
disulfide bond is destroyed by heat, why can't we reestablish it with cooking by adding a little onion or garlic to the food. Remember that onions
and garlic are seeds, they contain molybdenum if they are seeds.
