One interpretation of the above may be that we should be afraid of our food, especially items like garlic, dried blueberry powder, and other such natural, plant-based products; and that you should speak with your doctor before you eat that next garlic clove or tomato. And for goodness sakes, lets be careful with that Vitamin C. After all, doctors are experts, so they tell us, and they know all there is to know about these things, and they will protect us from our brainless, idiot selves.

Under current legislation, no one is permitted to make claims to consumers in support of health benefits derived from natural formulations. This means we cannot make specific statements as to how food-based, non-drug products such as cherry juice, blueberry powder, garlic or Vitamin C may help you overcome the pain, inflammation and fatigue associated with degenerative diseases. Taking cherry juice, blueberry powder, Vitamin C, or eating garlic or a tomato should be, and must be, your decision based on your personal research and your understanding of the role food-derived antioxidants and enzymes play in health and well-being.


Although, there is that June 19, 2002 report from the Journal of the American Medical Association that advises all adults to take a multivitamin every day, including Vitamin C, to reduce the risk of many chronic diseases, including osteoporosis. And with regular Vitamin C, bone’ will benefit, as will muscles, hair, nails, eyes, etc.

Apparently, almost 80% of Americans do not receive the recommended five daily servings of fruits and vegetables that would provide sufficient amounts of key vitamins and minerals needed for a healthy diet. Recent evidence has shown that these sub-optimal levels of Vitamins, including Vitamin C, can be risk factors for chronic diseases such as cardiovasular disease, cancer, and osteoporosis, and that taking supplemental vitamins and minerals can help reduce the risk of many of these diseases. Hmmmm….

The truth is, the medical profession has not kept up, the FDA has not kept up – and the number one killer in this country is now prescription drugs. The medical system is collapsing; it is too costly and fails too many people. Their philosophy that ‘healing must be taken out of the hands of nature’ is flawed, and they are slowly, far-too-slowly realizing that the only hope of a healthy nation is to return to basics, like plain good food and physical activity.


My suggestion for you: Don’t wait for them to catch up; you don’t have time. Be pro-active, read what you can about the powerful nutritional information and supplements available to us now; learn about natural healing and physical activity; and create a new healthy environment for yourself.
