Paleo-diet and Word of Wisdom

The newest food fad is the paleo-diet.  Now the world is trying to convince us that we all suffer from some mythical condition known as "wheat belly" and that we should all aspire to the dietary habits, and legendary health and IQ of the cave man.  Paleo-ticians are also trying to convince us that the food pyramid was contrived and not based on any real science. This might be true, but doesn't mean its wrong by itself. 

What is really going on here?  We all suspect that Satan via his modern-day minons have been mucking with our food.  So, what is the truth? Good thing we have revelation from God to cut through the misinformation from both sides.  Beware, Satan aways tries to control both sides of an issue because he knows humans love to take sides.

Word of Wisdom says: "All grain is ordained for the use of man and of beasts, to be the staff of life,"  also, "wheat for man" and "Yea, flesh also of beasts and of the fowls of the air, I, the Lord, have ordained for the use of man with thanksgiving; nevertheless they are to be used sparingly;" and "Every herb in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season thereof;"
 (Doctrine and Covenants, D&C 89)

So, here we have the food pyramid right here with grains at the base (staff of life) and meat at the top (sparingly) with fruits and veggies in the middle.  But what are the modern-day Gadiantons doing to corrupt our food supply?  

1. GMO corn and soy are treaded with "Roundup" which sterilizes the soil. Now usually the soil bacteria help process nutrients for plants. But ConAgra uses chemical fertilizers. The consequence is that modern fertilizers are not required to contain sulfur. If you grow corn and soy in sulfur poor soil, the corn and soy will be even more sulfur poor than they already are.

2. Modern wheat strains have been altered such that modern varieties do not concentrate micronutrients.

3. Babylon, Persia, Greek, Roman Empire, Israel and many other advanced civilizations were built upon the foundation of wheat as the primary source of nutrition.

4. Every cell of the body burns glucose as its primary fuel source.

5. Food processing strips wheat of its bran but also, more important, its germ which contains the omega fatty acids and sulfur.

6. Food preservatives like potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate are poisonous and dangerous and in the latter case inhibit sulfate metabolism.  The word of wisdom directs to eat food "in the season thereof".

7. Soy and hormones in milk are estrogenic and likely partly responsible for the truncal obesity in the West. We are all pseudopregnant. Many men feel like they have to take extra testosterone just to feel and look like a man.

8. True that high frutose in corn syrup or sucrose (50% in each) in the diet is converted into fat. Grain carbs are glucose and NOT frutose which is stored as glycogen and NOT fat.

9. Modern chronic inflammatory diseases, cancers, and diabetes are assiciated with elevated homocystein levels indicating global sulfate deficiency. Sodium Benzoate (soda) and Tylenol can exacerbate low sulfur levels especially when sick and not eating much protein. The USDA has no RDA for sulfur (imagine that!)

10. Healthy veggies like garlic, onions, mustards (the greatest of herbs), asparagus, horse raddish, etc are all linked to their high sulfur content (eg allicin or thiocyanins)

11. Letting your fields lay fallow allows the regeneration of nutrients in the soil, principally atmospheric sulfur in the form of acid rain.  However, a concerted effort of the US government in the 80's has vilified sulfur and taken steps to scrub sulfur from coal, oil and gasoline.  Consider how lush plants grow following a volcanic eruption or when you add Epsom salt to your garden.

12. Sulfate is used by the Liver as a principle means to detoxify thr blood.  The body requires large amounts of sulfates in the production of glucosaminoglycans (GAGS) which are critical elements in cellular signaling and function. (eg cholesterol sulfate, heparin sulfate, heparan sulfate, dermantan sulfate, condroitin sulfate).
