Doctors Don’t Know Enough About Nutrition

August 8, 2008

The lastest survey published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition says Doctors don’t know enough about nutrition. “Only 14% [of the 54% of physicians that completed the survey] felt physicians were adequately trained to provide nutrition counseling.” Interns who did take Nutrition courses were more critical of physicians who didn’t. 77% of physicians completing the survey aggree that “nutrition assessments should be included in routine primary care visits”.

Problem DNA Can Be Fixed by Nutrition

June 4, 2008

Many diseases and sicknesses are caused by the wrong reading of our DNA and changes to our enzymes. Enzymes to much more than digest food. Enzymes release energy and allow our body to produce energy from our food. Enzymes can act as antioxidants to protect us from cell damage and mutation. Enzymes are very important to maintain American health and nutrition. Without the right amount nutrition from enzymes, vitamins and minerals, our health is in jeopardy.

When our RNA misreads our DNA to produce these life giving enzymes our health can go downhill. One of the key causes of aging is damage from free-radicals that are usually squelched by enzymes. The American diet is low in nutrition from enzymes, vitamins and minerals.

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) & the American Army is testing what nutritional supplements can be taken to fix defective enzymes.

“Our soldiers, like top athletes, operate under extreme conditions that may well be limited by their physiology,” Rine said. “We’re now working with the defense department to identify variants of enzymes that are remediable, and ultimately hope to identify troops that have these variants and test whether performance can be enhanced by appropriate supplementation.”

Folic Acid protects against birth defects because it helps produce the MTHFR enzyme that helps makes DNA. Folic Acid also protects against the heart damaging homocysteine.

Scientists think vitamins and minerals protect enzymes because vitamins and minerals help make the enzymes hold their proper shape. Proper health and nutrition can be assured by appropriate supplementation of vitamins and minerals.
