Not everything we eat will be taken up or accepted by our body. The mineral content needed for the replacement of losses, has to be present in the food in the first place and when that is the case also present within certain conditions or the chemical mechanism present/needed.
The only way the needed minerals can be replaced in our body is in an organic form, bio-available, chelated or colloidal.
Many people got the notion wrong between organic and inorganic as result of food interference. Here are huge commercial and other interest at stake and without the right food humans will not last long. (To survive on the one hand and money to be made on the other or commercial interests are two often competing things).
Again to be used by our body, each nutrient that enters has to come in its organic form-and in a certain chemistry definition otherwise cannot be used and leave as waste, it has to have carbon complex molecules, which are relative simple to break down and reactive.In other words, it has to come in as fruit, vegetable or meat, all consisting of carbon type compound.
Digestive systems; the Japanese can consume and use much more of the nutrients present in seaweed than the average US citizen because their stomach has a different load of bacteria than other. Depending on what you regular do eat the digastric system will start to adapt or change over time. People in the West are able to digest milk products better than Indians. There is the old saying you are what you eat literally.
However you have to take your food in an organic fashion and there's a symbiotic relationship between humans and plants. Plants inhale carbon dioxide, take the carbon and let go of the oxygen forming other chemical products with hydrogen, carbon some oxygen and minerals. We as human and other animals inhale oxygen and use it to oxidize the previous formed chemical products, extract the energy and exhale carbon dioxide. It's a lovely relationship. That's the way it works here on earth.
Plant do have no need of organic substances but elements. Many elemental minerals are toxic as such but not being part of organic substances for use by animals and humans. One part per million of arcen is toxic for humans but up to 50 part per million of arcen integrated in arceno-sugars does no harm.
So when an organic farmer says, "I'm going to put manure on my field," that's fine, but before the plants can use it must be broken down, liberate the carbon atom and broken down to inorganic substances by using micro organism living in the soil. During the breakdown the water and moisture present in the soil will help to dissolve the released nutrients after which the plant can uptake it. The nutrient content present to plants and the uptake through there root system enhanced. The concentration of the basic nutrients in the moisture present in the soil increased by adding manure. because it will take time to break everything down to the basic substances and will take time. The organic substance will spread out the production of nutrients over a much longer time compared with the nutrients present in fertilizers. Water plays an important part during breakdown, dissolve and tempory storage of the produced elementary type nutrients. Most people believe that the only good food is food that gets manure put on it. The sad part is that the chemical farmers actually have a more readily available product for the plant. They don't have very many elements, but at least they are elementary shaped elements that can be used right away.
Importance of minerals
Plants, trees, seaweed and algae are the link we do know of able to realize the organic substance synthesis from mineral elements. Also of binding carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen we and other animals do need. The mineral are very important because they are instrumental in all kinds of life-sustaining activities in our body.
Commercial fertilizers are used on large scale to increase crop yields but provide only three elements to these crops being nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus. So, farmers can grow something that looks like food, but they're only putting three elements or minerals back into the soil and no more. It's a strip-mining operation with no easy solutions, and putting back three elements is not going to do it from a quality of food prospect/view. The health consequences of mineral depletion of crop soils are severe, two billion people out of the six billion inhabitants of the planet are suffering from micronutrient malnutrition and it is not without reason that the ancient people going back to Summer did advice ''that no diet is complete without adding some products of the sea or water including fish or seaweed which are rich sources with minerals. At the roots the observation or the fact that when life did move form living in the sea, lakes and rivers to occupy land the access to minerals became limited.
You-just like me, animals and fauna-are made up of water and about 90 different minerals. When we are born, we have these 90 minerals/trace elements in our body but in Time start to lose some and they need to be replaced. Not a selected few but all, most however in small quantities and are called trace-elements. It is the replacement and conditions or the chemical mechanism needed plus availability of these minerals that count. It affects the DNA replicating itself within our bodies, which does happen many millions times in a day, and every replication needs a specific mineral to catalyse it. When there is a missing element-whether it be cobalt, selenium, gold, tin or platinum it will stop, they're missing. The long-term result of the mass demineralisation of the population is that we end up with chronic disease acceleration, and the argument that we do life longer hold no real true, other than being just a number to boost about. Worst still the human body, better known a the flesh container can exist in current condition about 160 years in good health under optimal conditions. The current average age is less than half of it.
While transient sub-optimal nutrition may be forgiven, a constant diet lacking in these micro nutrients will adversely affect every function, structure, and detoxification functions of the human cells, our metabolism will suffer, leading to diseases.
As example I would like to draw attention to the element Iodine. A good example because it clearly shows how stupid human, government and international organisations are in respect of food and health. Property of iodine Is a relatively rare element in the Earth's crust, but is concentrate in the oceans. It is the heaviest essential element known to be needed by all living organisms, but its rarity in many soils has led to many deficiency problems in land animals and in human populations. We do and have known that for a long time. A shortage will severely impact our health and capabilities.
Iodine is anti-microbial, anti-parasitic, antiviral, anti fungal , anti-cancer, and it enhances immune function, important for hormone production, reverses fibrocystic breast disease, and shrinks ovarian and thyroid cysts.
Can removes toxic chemicals, flush out chemical toxins like fluoride, lead, mercury etc., apart from biological toxins. It also prevents the proliferation of harmful bacteria in the stomach. Iodine removes the toxic halogens fluoride and bromide, Iodism, an unpleasant brassy taste, runny nose, and acne-like skin.Lesions, is caused by the bromide that iodine extracts from the tissues.
Symptoms subside on a lesser doses of iodine. Consuming high iodine doses should, of course be coupled with a complete nutritional program that includes adequate amounts of selenium, Magnesium, and Omega-3 fatty acids. However all are abundantly present in seaweed and explain why the Japanese can consume such large quantities.
Consumption in Japan between 0.05-0.1 gram/day and in the USA 0.00024 gram/day.(RDI is 0.00015 gram/day). Breast cancer in the U.S. is the highest in the world, 1 in 7 American women (almost 15 percent) will develop breast cancer. Six million American women with fibrocystic disease have moderate to severe breast pain and tenderness that lasts more than 6 days during the menstrual cycle. Today, 90 percent of women have epithelial hyperplasia, fluid-filled cysts, and fibrosis. For more information and expert opinion please search the web. You can google for more information on the subject.
Type "iodine for health" in the search bar of Yahoo, bling or google.
Despite that and the beter health and lower mortality rate in Japan Western Governments and the WHO organisation insist on low Iodine use.
These accumulated minerals in seaweed can be loosely considered as primary metabolites. The accumulated minerals are concentrated against the osmotic gradient to cause a much higher concentration of each mineral inside the body cells and intercellular spaces compared to the surrounding fluid (blood plasma). Over dependence on land-based food sources often lead to deficiencies in micronutrients and trace elements. There are demographic studies which show that people who regularly incorporate edible seaweed's into their diets have fewer problems from mineral depletion and live longer than other peoples. (Japan)
Seaweed offers a natural balance between minerals and corresponding vitamins. The minerals in seaweeds are in colloidal form, meaning they retain their molecular identity while remaining in liquid.
It affects the DNA replicates itself which in numbers or scale being many millions every day, and for every replication to take place it needs a mineral to catalyse it. On a given day, because minerals are not in our food, there's something like 250,000 transactions that Can't happen because there is a missing element-whether it is cobalt, selenium, gold, tin or platinum. They're missing. The long-term result of the mass demineralisation of the population is that we end up with chronic disease acceleration, and if we are living longer hold no real true being just a number to boost about. Being even that number is spooked and not true.
We're living completely debilitated, in need of lots of care, hooked to a machine, locked away, or some drip bottle, extending life because we have better insurance. But it's not a better life. It's not a longer life.
Advice/regulations, one example is the important trace elements Iodine. We do know that in Japan people consume so much seaweed that there iodine intake might be between 50 and 100 times the recommended amount. We also know that the cancer incidents for breast cancer are small compared to the West. Many believe that the mineral wealth of seaweed is one of the factors giving its place as food and health benefits. In general concentrated nutritional mineral medicinal, to be preferred above pharmaceuticals. What is going to keep you alive and well nutritionally in difficult times are the basic elements that strengthen us from the foundational level of physiology.
Pollution; the sea and oceans are as such the mirrors of the land activity and anything happening is used on land will end up in the Ocean. If you want to improve the quality of the water you have to start looking at the activities taking place on land. In addition to seaweed and algae the sea and oceans hold an dprocuce a large amount of life and food like fish.
Heavy metals as listed in Directive 2002/32/EC For a range of heavy metals the levels in seaweeds and seaweed products have been investigated. A general overview has been presented by Holdt and Kraan (2011) for listed heavy metals.
Seaweed ('algae') is a specific subcategory in the EFSA food category classification (EFSA, 2009b).Levels used as basis for the risk assessment for total arsenic are: median = 24 ppm, average = 30.9 ppm, P95 12 = 102.2 ppm, maximum = 236 ppm (n=448; EFSA, 2009b). Algae based supplements (n=9: average = 19.5 ppm, P95 = 116 ppm) and non-algae based supplements (n=772: average = 1.2 ppm, P95 = 4.4 ppm) could have a further contribution to the exposure with arsenic (EFSA, 2009b).
Considering the 2 ppm level for inorganic arsenic (Directive 2002/32/EC), Sargassum fusiforme (Hijiki) exceeds this limit by a factor 39-47). Data of Rose et al. (2007) confirm these levels. Soaking of dried seaweed products before consumption will not substantially lower the level of inorganic arsenic in Hijiki (Rose et al., 2007).
Further attention is given by a range of governments. More recently, Mok et al. (2012) found levels in Eucheuma for arsenic (4.1-4.8 ppm), cadmium (0.38-0.44 ppm), lead (0.22-0.36 ppm) and mercury (0.028-0.036 ppm). The arsenic level is much below the levels for red algae.
