This is why we sicken and die prematurely at 75; because in almost
all of us, the processes of repair are below par. And the balance
of evidence shows that, in the majority of cases, this is due
to the depletion of micro-nutrients.
Surveys, like the one below, show that most people are
depleted in most micro-nutrients.
But depletion levels are far worse than the chart
implies, because it only shows those 'conventional' nutrients
that have historically had the most research devoted to them.
Other nutrients like Omega 3 oils, soy isoflavones,
the flavonoids in fruits and vegetables, carotenoids like lycopene
and beta carotene, and Q10 have as much, if not more, 'healing
power' . And depletion levels are even worse for most of these.
If the body has inadequate nutritional support
it is vulnerable to the two threats to your health that most contribute
to disease - a weakened immune system and free radical damage.
