Corn and other drugs

Consider cereal grains for a moment. Why grains like corn rapidly and extensively replaced traditional foods even though they were less nutritious and required more labour has been widely regarded as a puzzle; cultivation of cereal grains continued even when the abundance of more easily processed foodstuffs—such as meat and fruit—rendered it unnecessary. Well, foods like wheat and corn release exorphins when digested. It's been speculated daily opioid self-administration could have increased people’s tolerance of crowded sedentary conditions, of regular work, of subjugation by rulers. If so, corn might have ultimately helped the development of civilization.

In which case, is so-called civilization a good thing?

I mean, the game civilization obviously is, especially II and IV, but in the way we live sense?

normal that its boring we are all looking to the WORLD CUP or not ??   Grin

My mate has two tickets for the final of the World Cup 2018 but he is getting married on that day and cannot attend.

If anyone wants to go instead of him, it's at St Andrews Church in Brighton and the bride’s name is Sarah.

Grains and dairy are generally two of the hardest foodstuffs to digest. My friend on a medical diet tells me that the enzymes responsible for breaking them down are found on the tips of the villi which weaken as we age. TMI but there you have it.

#random: I read the entire document.

I've been doing some reading into this "gluten issue" lately after seeing an old thread pop up again on 4chan.

tl;dr: Part of me is wondering how much of this goes back to the time when the industry switched to bromated flours (instead of iodized) and adding fluoride to water - Have recently started taking a 5% Lugol's Iodine drop every morning in a glass of water to detox myself.

Put on your tin-foil hats before proceeding.

Previous thread ghosted. Go buy Lugol’s iodine (it’s been around over 100 years) it’s on Amazon. If you think I’m a Lugol’s shill get a knock-off, I don’t give a fuck. -Take two drops of it every day in a glass of water -Along with it, take a good Selenium, Zinc, and Magnesium supplement (important for metabolizing iodine) -Finally, take a teaspoon of sea salt and dissolve in two ounces of water and swallow (you will detox bromide and it will make you feel bad for a few days if you don’t do this, salt binds to the bromide and you won’t get sick, hospitals do this all the time)

Do this every morning. The benefits generally take from 30 minutes to a couple of days to become evident. You will feel healthier than you’ve felt in years.
Fast forward to now. Most Americans have decided that table salt is shit because it contains no trace minerals. That’s true. The problem is that sea salt contains no iodine. Go to your kitchen right now and look at your sea salt, you will find a warning that it lacks iodine, “a critical nutrient.”
In order to make up for that deficiency, you are eating all the iodized table salt you can find everywhere else, which means you are craving total shit food all the time.

Not only that, but bromide and fluoride (and other iodine competitors) are much more prevalent than ever. They are in pesticides sprayed on foods, preservatives, aerosols, etc. So while your exposure to them has increased, your intake of iodine has decreased.

Symptoms of iodine deficiency include: Fatigue, insomnia, hair-trigger mood swings, obsessive-compulsive behavior, lack of energy (especially for physical tasks), lack of motivation (especially for physical tasks), listlessness, social anxiety, panic attacks, lethargy, all symptoms of hypothyroidism, all symptoms of hypoadrenalism, iodized salt cravings (especially in junk food). There are more but those are the big ones.

Women who are iodine deficient are at much higher risks of birth defects (autism).

The bottom line is that you're all deficient in Iodine. Before you click back, READ. Dr. Brownstein (I know I know, -stein) conducted a study of 6,000 of his patients and discovered 94% of Americans are iodine deficient. That was 15 years ago.

In the early 1900's the United States stopped iodinating bread and instead began to use bromide as a replacement. Bromide and Iodine compete for uptake in the thyroid. The human body (and especially the thyroid) uses iodine for more than 160 (currently known) critical functions. At the time, flour was the #1 source of iodine in the US because we don't eat much kelp/seaweed and not all fish contain much (plus we're beef eaters). Once we switched to brominated flour, a goiter epidemic broke out.

It became a national crisis. You've never heard of it, but it happened. In order to stop the epidemic you would think they would iodinate flour again, but no. Instead they started iodinating table salt, aka iodized table salt. The goiter epidemic was basically quashed at that point.

Fast forward to 1945, water flouridation begins. Flouride also competes with iodine in the thyroid. Americans become woefully iodine insufficient.

What happens next? Like any animal, we graze the minerals we need. Where is iodized table salt found? Salted pretzels. Potato chips. French fries.

There's a reason iodine is one of the only critical nutrients not reported on nutrient labels. There's a reason they decided to use table salt to deliver it (promote cravings for sales of junk food).

Here is one person's genuine experience with Iodine, there are thousands of posts like this all over the internet:

http://www.longecity.org/forum/topic/67063-iodine-is-magical-miracle-most-underrated-supplement/

Here is Dr. Brownstein himself giving a quick rundown:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afZg2jzHuCs [Open] But why the food and drug administration allows an additive that causes kidney cancer in rats and possibly in humans? Potassium bromate is classified as a category 2B carcinogen (possibly carcinogenic to humans) by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).[5] Potassium bromate has been banned from use in food products in the European Union, Argentina, Brazil,[6] Canada, Nigeria, South Korea, Peru and some other countries. It was banned in Sri Lanka in 2001,[7] China in 2005,[citation needed] and India on 20 June 2016.[8] In the United States of America, it has not been banned. The FDA sanctioned the use of bromate before the Delaney clause of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act—which bans potentially carcinogenic substances— went into effect in 1958. But since 1991 the FDA has urged bakers to voluntarily stop using it. In California a warning label is required when bromated flour is used.[9] Japanese baked goods manufacturers stopped using potassium bromate voluntarily in 1980; however, Yamazaki Baking resumed its use in 2005, claiming they had new production methods to reduce the amount of the chemical which remained in the final product.[10]

I had no idea about iodine counteracting fluoride, but i'll share what i do know about iodine! The thyroid uses iodine to make thyroid hormone. Thyroid hormone clears cholesterol out of your blood into your poop. While there are many, many things that can cause high cholesterol numbers, in the US, the majority of people simply aren't getting enough iodine.

Doctors don't tell you this. Instead they tell you to take a statin, which only masks the cholesterol problem. Whatever caused the high problem is still an issue, so if your cholesterol was high due to not getting enough iodine, your probably still not getting enough iodine.

Iodine dissipates out of salt pretty quickly, there isn't nearly as much in salt as you are les to believe. Your best source of iodine in food is seafood and seaweed.

With iodine, its a good idea to start low and slowly build up dosage. I took iodine for a couple years due to high cholesterol. I started at 225 nmg, and added another 225 nmg per month until i got to 2025 nmg ( or 2 mg) Then i developed insomnia. I backed down to 1800 nmg and insomnia went away. You'll know when you take too much iodine. Btw, it worked! my cholesterol is normal now!

 Interesting... but wtf are nmg?  Based on the conversion offered (2025nmg = 2 mg) I would say the author means mcg or micrograms.  
 
 Anyway, don't put the iodine in a glass of water because the entire glass of water will taste terrible and it becomes a chore to drink it all every day.  It's better to put it in a shot glass with half an ounce of water or juice.  Honestly though, I've been taking a drop of iodine daily for a few months now and I don't feel any differently.  I'm going to have to kick it up a notch.

There are Iodoral tablets 50mg a day. For goiters I guess. Seems like a lot of iodine.

Quote
In the past 20 years the use of iodine supplementation in bread was eliminated and a goiter producing substance toxic to the thyroid gland (bromine) was introduced as replacement for iodine.

Oh. Undecided
