In healthy states, metal homeostasis is tightly controlled, and its deregulation is implicated as a cause or consequence of many human diseases. The study of trace metals in biology and medicine, historically known as inorganic biochemistry or bioinorganic chemistry, is growing in importance, becoming fashionably known as “metallomics.” Continue reading
The common saying, “too much of a good thing,” does have a place in nutrition. The body prefers a happy medium, and too little and too much of many essential vitamins and minerals can lead to antagonists deficiency and/or imbalances. Continue reading
Numerous zinc supplementation trials have shown that a wide range of health benefits can be realized by increasing the intake of zinc where diets are inadequate in this micronutrient. Zinc is a mineral once absorbed in the small intestine by a carrier-mediated mechanism. Once it has been absorbed it becomes Cationic Zinc in the fluids of the body. Continue reading
In the context of nutrition, a mineral is a chemical element required as an essential nutrient for organisms to perform functions necessary for life.
If rocks created the life they must sustain life!
There comes a time in everyone’s life when you have to say grandma was right.
Some of the ideas 40 years ago just do not seem important, why should they, we have modern medicine and cell phones and that’s all we need. So let’s go back in time and then add some science to Grandma’s thinking.
The basic science of oxidative stress and the antioxidant response is not in contention, what is an effective antioxidant is.
When the body breaks food down into energy, it generates a by-product known as free radicals. Also present in food itself, the air we breathe and the sun we worship, free radicals are a broad class of chemicals with the potential to exert significant damage.
We all have non-normal cells, this is well known in the scientific world, but not quite understood by the general public.
The Cell Cycle has been intensively studied to help in determining the cause of cancer. This has actually been going on for centuries, from Otto Warburg in the 1920s to a recent publication in 2014 with the new definition of Carcinogenesis, almost 100 years later. So now what?
Nutritional therapeutics has largely been directed toward the recognition and correction of nutritional deficiencies.

It is now becoming evident that a loss of homeostatic equilibrium between the nutrients can also have an adverse effect on health. A loss of this vital balance, particularly between the trace elements, can lead to subclinical deficiencies.
The Cancer Cell (CC) Formula is an experimental treatment that is currently being researched on cancer, infectious and other diseases.
This technology targets cells which do not follow the Krebs metabolic cycle by delivering a lethal dose of minerals (zinc and copper) to those cells. Because cancer cells follow an anaerobic, non-Krebs metabolism, it is predicted to target cancer cells precisely.
