Raw Food Diet May Cause Iodine Deficiency

Raw Food Diet Iodine Deficiency?

If you're vegan or vegetarian, you may want to consider upping your Iodine levels.

Iodine content in food of plant origin is lower in comparison with that of animal origin due to a low iodine concentration in soil. Urinary iodine excretion was assessed in 15 vegans, 31 lacto- and lacto-ovo vegetarians and 35 adults on a mixed diet. Iodine excretion was significantly lower in alternative nutrition groups - 172 µg/l in vegetarians and 78 µg/l in vegans compared to 216 µg/l in subjects on a mixed diet.

One fourth of the vegetarians and 80% of the vegans suffer from iodine deficiency (iodine excretion value below 100 µg/l) compared to 9% in the persons on a mixed nutrition. The results show that under conditions of alternative nutrition, there is a higher prevalence of iodine deficiency, which might be a consequence of exclusive or prevailing consumption of food of plant origin, no intake of fish and other sea products, as well as reduced iodine intake in the form of sea salt.

The article above is from the Global Light Network Newsletter. Global Light Network is a source for many alternative products and suppplements including an Iodine supplement "Detoxified Iodine" Based on Edgar Cayce's formulation of Atomidine and through a proprietary process, Detoxified Iodine is 99 percent bio-available.

Detoxified Iodine:
DETOXIFIED IODINE is totally different from the typical toxic iodine in its denser state sold as an antiseptic, or as iodine tri-chloride (claiming to be atomized), or as added to potassium iodine to make it safer. It is also unlike glandular or prescriptions containing hormones that take over the thyroid’s job, instead of nutritionally building the thyroid to do its own job. Seaweed, seafood, greens and raw sunflower seeds, are good sources for iodine but may not have the levels necessary to support the thyroid fully for good homeostasis in the body.

Detoxified Iodine is extracted from edible seaweed in Japan. It is well known in the industry that Japan produces some of the best Iodine in the world. Once the Iodine is obtained and sent to the US, it is then processed with our proprietary process, which changes the Iodine into Detoxified Iodine. You don’t have to take shot-glasses full of standard Iodine to get improvement. Just take drops of Detoxified Iodine and see the result. You get 200mcg of Iodine absorbed into your body for every drop you take.

Irradiated Food is not Raw Food

Your choices for Raw Food are about to be eliminated as the FDA takes the first steps to irradiate all produce in the US see the reprint of an article from NaturalNews...

Reprinted from NaturalNews

(NaturalNews) The FDA has announced that beginning today, spinach and lettuce sold across the United States may now be secretly irradiated before it reaches grocery store shelves. What's "secret" about it? The FDA previously decided that irradiation warning stickers would not be required on any food items because it would be "too confusing to consumers." (The word IRRADIATION apparently has too many letters to be understood to food buyers.) Thus, irradiated foods will not be labeled as such, and consumers are going to be left in the dark about all this (except for those who actually eat the irradiated food, in which case they will glow in the dark).

The FDA, of course, insists that the levels of irradiation used to kill e.coli will have no effect whatsoever on the nutritional value of the food. This astonishing statement comes from an agency that doesn't believe food has any nutritional value in the first place, so lowering the value to zero by destroying all the phytonutrients does not, in the opinion of the FDA, alter its nutritional value at all. Thus, destroying all the anti-cancer nutrients in a head of broccoli merely brings that broccoli into "compliance" as a non-functional food, according to the FDA.

Radiation, of course, destroys delicate phytochemicals in plants -- the very phytochemicals protecting consumers against cancer, heart disease, high cholesterol, inflammation and other diseases. Microwaving broccoli, for example, destroys up to 98% of its anti-cancer nutrients. (The FDA has not yet acknowledged this scientific fact, either.) In a similar way, irradiating food destroys much of its nutritional content, including vitamins, carotenoids, anthocyanins and other delicate protective nutrients that are right now providing the last, desperate nutritional defense against the American diet of meat, milk, fried foods and processed junk.

Irradiating fresh produce will leave the U.S. population is a state of extreme deficiency in protective plant-based nutrients.

Does the FDA plan to destroy the health of the U.S. population?
Many people suspect that's what the FDA really wants. A nutritionally-deficient, disease-ridden population would mean a windfall of profits for the FDA's buddies in Big Pharma -- the folks who sell patented medications at monopoly prices. With the food supply destroyed by radiation, ordinary people would have virtually no remaining sources of protective phytonutrients!

In promoting this food radiation policy, the FDA has accomplished what all the terrorists in the world could not: The mass irradiation of the U.S. food supply -- much like setting off a dirty bomb over the nation's farms (but with less radiation). This destruction of the nutritional value of the food supply is a far greater threat to the health of the U.S. population than any terrorist event, including 9/11. And yet it is being done by our own people, TO our own people, by a lawless agency that answers to no one. FDA officials are not voted into office by the People; they are appointed by politicians. They answer to no one, they refuse to follow federal law, and they operate as tyrants over a quarter of the U.S. economy.

And now they have taken it upon themselves to destroy the national food supply.

We should be more than just alarmed -- we should be outraged! The FDA has committed an act of war against the People. With this decision, the FDA has firmly positioned itself as an enemy of the People, and a bringer of death and disease to the nation. Why are our elected representatives in Washington allowing this madness?

Think about this: If the FDA has its way:

• All your food will be irradiated, pasteurized or killed
• All your children will be vaccinated
• All your medicine will be based on pharmaceuticals
• All your free speech about health will be suppressed
• All informative labeling on food and supplements will be outlawed
• Growing and selling non-irradiated garden vegetables will become a crime!

Today it's spinach and lettuce; tomorrow it's all fresh produce
Don't think the FDA will stop with spinach and lettuce, either. They're already talking about irradiating tomatoes, peppers and onions. Before long, radiation could become mandatory for ALL fresh produce, and all the fresh fruits and vegetables that are supposed to contain health-protecting nutrients will be transformed into sterile, inert plant mass with no health benefits at all. (Brilliant scam, huh?)

This is by design. I believe the FDA wants the American public to be sickened and diseased. Why else would they ban Free Speech about healing foods like cherries, broccoli and garlic? Why would they outlaw the selling of herbs and nutritional supplements that claim to treat and prevent disease? The FDA wants you to be sick, enslaved and medicated, and irradiating the food supply is the quickest way to accomplish that.

He who controls the food controls the People.

He who destroys the food can profit from the People's sickness.

The FDA's crimes against humanity
In pushing this radiation agenda, the FDA is committing a crime against humanity -- a nutritional atrocity that violates fundamental human rights. And yet the FDA's top decision makers continue to operate with zero oversight and zero accountability. They make decisions in a corporate-sponsored vacuum, absent any input from reasonable, health-conscious consumers or scientists. And because they have been granted tyrannical powers by Congress, the FDA operates above the law.

It is not subject to any laws whatsoever; not even the U.S. Constitution which is supposed to protect the People's right to "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" (as stated in the Declaration of Independence).

The mass irradiation of the food supply is a violation of the "Life" part of that phrase, wouldn't you agree? If we can no longer buy nourishing foods with their nutrients intact, then we are all doomed to degenerative disease and death... but not before paying out our life savings to doctors, drug companies and hospitals. That's the evil genius of the food irradiation plot: It kills you slowly, at just the right pace to drain your bank account before you expire from malnutrition.

I truly believe this irradiation of the food supply is the beginning of the end of America. No nation can survive the destruction of its food supply. The FDA is dooming America to a slow, painful, medicated death. In a generation, this nation will be lost, destroyed from within by short-sighted tyrants who violated nature and left the People to rot.

What you can do right now to fight this latest transgression by the FDA
For starters, you can:

1) Grow your own food. A little gardening is good. Grow whatever you can, even if it's just a few kitchen herbs.

2) Buy your food at farmer's markets, coops and CSAs. See

3) Ask your grocery store if they are buying irradiated spinach. If they don't know, demand they find out!

4) Raise hell with your Senators and Congresspeople, demanding they pass new laws protecting consumers from the FDA and its plot to destroy the nutritional value of the food supply.

Also, listen to two podcasts I've posted on this topic. The first was recorded several months ago, where I publicly predicted the FDA would do exactly what we're seeing right now. Listen to that podcast here:

The second podcast was just posted today. I recorded it right before writing this article. It goes into much greater detail about the FDA's plot to destroy the health of the U.S. population. You can listen to that here:

Finally, don't stand for this food supply madness! Raise your voice. Write your local paper, call your representatives in Washington and tell them you strongly oppose the irradiation of the food supply. Teach people about phytonutrients. And stay tuned to NaturalNews as we continue to cover this important story.

The FDA has gone mad. Criminally mad. It is an agency that will literally kill you if given the chance, and it is up to all of us to stop this madness before we lose our health, our children and our very nation.

Chia Seeds...more Ultimate Raw Foods

Chia Seeds are truly a Raw Food Diet Superstar.

Chia Seeds have long been known as a historical "SuperFood"

The Indians of the southwest and Mexico used this tiny little seed as a staple food. Chia is known as the "running food," Chia Seeds are used as a high-energy endurance food and Chia Seed use has been recorded as far back as the ancient Aztecs.

All it took was for Dr. Oz to appear on the Oprah show and recommend Chia seeds and now Chia Seeds are Hot!...and they can be expensive. The Dr. Oz seeds are pretty pricy. Be sure and read to the end and there will be some less expensive sources.

The big controversy seems to be which type of Chia Seed is the best, White or Black?

SALBA a Canadian importer of White Chia seeds claims that all of the human nutritional studies show that White Chia seeds have the highest nutrient content. It seems Salba funded those studies.

Others claim that all Chia seeds are the same and variations of nutrients are a function of growing conditions and climate.

Recently I received a promotional brochure from NorthStar Nutritionists promoting the Salba brand of White Chia Seeds. First, in my opinion NorthStar Nutritionals are the kings of product hype. However, upon further research I am convinced that Chia Seeds are a fantastic addition to the raw food diet...In fact Chia Seeds may be the single most nutritious addition to a raw food diet.

Some interesting Salba Brand (white chia seeds) claims:


I purchased Salba at my local discount vitamin retailer for about $24.00 for 16oz. A special offer because the normal bottle holds 12oz.

A new favorite source for Raw Food information and products has White Chia Seeds for less than $13 for a pound bag. They also have it in 5lb bags which brings the cost per pound even lower. Click here Everything you Need to Learn Raw and Live Raw

At some point I may switch to the considerably lower priced black Chia Seeds but I will always have Chia Seeds as a daily Ultimate Raw SuperFood.

Raw Food Energy Bar That Tastes Good and is Good For You.

Energy Bars that taste good and are good for you. What a concept!

When you consider the junk food Energy Bars at your local health food store known as "Health Bars" reading the label of the Raw Revolution Organic Live Food Bars is a pleasure in itself.

The Bars are Gluten Free • Vegan • Wheat, Corn, Soy, Trans-fat, Cholestorol and Refined Sugar Free

Plenty of variety Tropical Mango Choc Chip Cookie Dough Raspberry & Chocolate Spirulina & Cashew Coconut & Agave Nectar Chocolate & Cashew Cashew & Agave Nectar Chocolate & Coconut Hazelnut & Chocolate Raisin & Chocolate

So far I've tried Raspberry & Chocolate, Chocolate & Cashew, Hazelnut & Chocolate, and Raisin & Chocolate...and I really was prepared to dislike them. However they were very good and I look forward to trying the other flavor blends

Expensive? Not for this quality of ingredients and preparation! Amazon has some good deals going on these bars. See end of article.

A typical ingredient label of the bars might look like this one which is my favorite so far

Hazelnut & Chocolate:
2.2 oz USDA Certified Organic Raw Revolution Organic Live Food Bar - Hazelnut & Chocolate. Kosher & Organic Certification by Natural Food Certifiers,...
Agave Nector, Cashew, Dates, Hazelnut, Almond, Sprouted Flax, Cocao Powder Processed with Alkali.

In short there is nothing in these bars that a "Raw Foodist" could not enjoy.

From Raw Revolution web site....

"As a registered nurse and natural foods chef, Raw Indulgence founder Alice Benedetto had developed a passion for preparing and eating raw foods. So when the raw snacks she made as an alternative to high sugar processed snacks for her high school son became so popular among his friends, she started selling them. Raw, living foods are cleaner and have higher nutrient content than cooked food. Processed foods such as protein isolates and grain-based fillers are acidic and cause fermentation in the body. Raw Organic foods are closest to their natural state, bringing us closer to healing ourselves and the global ecology. Raw Indulgence products, including Raw Revolution bars, are gluten free, vegan, free of wheat, corn, soy, trans-fats, cholesterol and refined sugar."

Considering the ingredients and the pleasant taste I consider this the best "Health Bar" I have ever tried.

A Top rating from Raw Food Wisdom!

Re The Ultimte Raw Food

The basis for the previous article "Ultimate Raw Food" was a report by Dr David Williams in his newsletter "Alternatives"

(Extracted from ALTERNATIVES newsletter, Vol. 12, No. 3, September 2007)
For more

Regarding comment that the product was not intended for human consumption...while most readers of this blog have no interest, the fact remains that the product is used for cattle that eventually end up consumed by humans. While it is described as a Food additive it is not a drug. It is simply food...raw food (fermented) and probably the "Ultimate Raw Food."

The Ultimate Raw Food?

Is this animal food additive the ultimate Raw Food?

A dried livestock food additive made from a common bakers yeast also enhances the human immune system. It is being sold on Ebay and craigslist and humans are eating it. It is shipped in plastic zipper bags from people who go to an animal feed store and buy fifty and hundred pound bags. They break it down into smaller portions for sale and ship all over the U.S. It even comes in an "Organic" form being fed to cattle destined to become Organic Beef. I don't know about you but I would definitely go for the "Organic" :-)(Humor)

If you are not real crazy about jumping online to craigs list or ebay for trusted suppliers. Here is a trusted site which sells this product. Look under"Whats New" Diamond V XPC Yeast

Many of the online sellers refer to a "Leading Alternative Medical Doctor" Dr. David Williams in the promotions for this livestock food additive I was unable to find the specific report that contains that recommendation. I will say I trust recommendations from Dr. Williams. His newsletter is one of the best on Alternative Medicine and healing. Search Dr. David Williams

Note: "Leading Alternative Medical Doctor" Report located 2/22/08
(Extracted from ALTERNATIVES newsletter, Vol. 12, No. 3, September 2007)

The story of this yeast based animal food and it's effect on humans is true. Workers in the plant that manufactured this animal food received a benefit they were not expecting, vibrant health. The workers who had direct contact with the substance maintained a high degree of wellness. Remarkably fewer colds, flu, etc. and fewer sick days compared to workers in other areas of the plant. The research that came from this anomaly produced a human version of the livestock additive. Research shows this product helps people stay well.

The Human version of the livestock food additive is sold as a vitamin supplement under the trademarked name EpiCor. For a webinar on "EpiCor go to Vitamin Research Products.
The EpiCor™ Story
EpiCor™ is a revolutionary dietary ingredient that is creating an entirely new category of immune health products. Not an herb, vitamin, or mushroom, it is a remarkable natural substance that, when taken every day, brings the functioning of the immune system to a whole new level!

The Organic Animal version is sold by the name Diamond V XP Green Yeast Culture.

The Organic Animal Version (Made in USA) listed ingredients....
Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast and the media on which it was grown, consisting of corn gluten feed, hominy feed, wheat middlings, rye middlings, and cane molasses.
