MINERALS IN THE SOIL; SENATE DOCUMENT #264 THIS IS A BOMBSHELL !
Our foods are bereft of minerals. This is hidden knowledge not secret.
"A U.S. Senate investigation revealed that food grown on millions of acres of land no longer contains enough minerals and is starving us." -Mother Earth News, Summer 2022
In 1936 Senator, Mr. Duncan Fletcher, Democrat of Florida, did the best he could toalert to public. On June 5 he addressed the 74th Congress, 2nd Session regarding depletion of minerals from our agricultural soil. In short he warned: “Laboratory tests prove that the fruits, vegetables, grains, eggs and even the milk and meats of today are not what they were a few generations ago. No man of today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his system with the mineral salts he requires for perfect health…” “The alarming fact is that foods – fruits, vegetables and grains – now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contains enough of certain needed nutrients, are starving us — no matter how much we eat of them.”.
While no forward action was taken, Senator Fletcher asked that the document be filed as a permanent Congressional record. Thus it became “U.S. Senate document 264”.
This documentation, based on the agricultural practices of Dr. Charles Northern, provides some of the most convincing arguments ever made regarding mineral nutrition -and the need for better growing methods.
U.S. Senate Document 264
74th Congress, 2nd Session, June 5, 1936
"Our physical well-being is moredirectly dependent upon minerals we take into our systems than upon calories or vitamins, or upon precise proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume."
"Do you know that most of us today are suffering from certain dangerous diet deficiencies which cannot be remedied until depleted soils from which our food comes are brought into proper mineral balance?"
"The alarming fact is that foods (fruits, vegetables and grains) now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contain enough of certain mineralsare starving us -no matter how much of them we eat. No man of today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his system with the minerals he requires for perfect health because his stomach isn't big enough to hold them."
"The truth is that our foods vary enormously in value, and some of them aren't worth eating as food...Our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon the minerals we take into our systems than upon calories or vitamins or upon the precise proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume."
"This talk about minerals is novel and quite startling. In fact, a realization of the importance of minerals in food is so new that the textbooks on nutritional dietetics contain very little about it. Nevertheless, it is something that concerns all of us, and the further we delve into it the more startling it becomes."
"You'd think, wouldn't you, that a carrot is a carrot -that one is about as good as another as far as nourishment is concerned? But it isn't; one carrot may look and taste like another and yet be lacking in the particular mineral element whichour system requires and which carrots are supposed to contain."
"Laboratory test prove that the fruits, the vegetables, the grains, the eggs, and even the milk and the meats of today are not what they were a few generations ago (which doubtless explains why our forefathers thrived on a selection of foods that would starve us!)"
"No man today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his stomach with the mineral salts he requires for perfect health, because his stomach isn't big enough to hold them! And we are running to big stomachs."
"No longer does a balanced and fully nourishing diet consist merely of so many calories or certain vitamins or fixed proportion of starches, proteins and carbohydrates. We know that our diets must contain in addition something like a score of minerals salts."
"It is bad news to learn from our leading authorities that 99% of the American people are deficient in these minerals, and that a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease. Any upset of the balance, any considerable lack or one or another element, however microscopic the body requirement may be, and we sicken, suffer, shorten our lives."
"We know that vitamins are complex chemical substances which are indispensable to nutrition, and that each of them is of importance for normal function of some special structure in the body. Disorder and disease result from any vitamin deficiency. It is not commonly realized, however, that vitamins control the body's appropriation of minerals, and in the absence of mineral's they have no function to perform. Lacking vitamins, the system can make some use of minerals, but lacking minerals, vitamins are useless."
"Certainly ourphysical well-being is more directly dependent upon the mineralswe take into our systems than upon calories of vitamins or upon the precise proportions of starch, protein of carbohydrates we consume."
"This discovery is one of the latest and most important contributions of science to the problem of human health."
While Senate Document 264 addresses mineral requirements of the physical body the obscured awareness is that we embody more than just the physical. Each of us is comprised of four aspects. In addition to having a physical body we have the Mental, Emotional and Spiritual parts. When the physical body is properly nourished the other three aspects are also more energetic. Hence increased vibrancy from proper mineral intake affects all the facets of ourselves.
This why we supplement with Ormus minerals. The Ormus form, being the most bio-available, is hence the most active.
