Linus Pauling said that all modern diseases can be attributed to a mineral deficiency. Most researchers say that sulfur is one of the most important of the trace minerals – at around the 4th to 6th most important on Earth.
How sulfur deficiencies promote sickness and disease
The process they used for these required heat and naturally occurring sulfur is one of the most temperature-sensitive of all elements. These fertilizers are devoid of sulfur due to the 360 degree F temperatures used for production; this temperature is 100 degrees over the vaporization point of sulfur.
The way plants got sulfur from the soil was from organic mulch and manure. This was all replaced by chemical fertilizers – which were meant to increase the yield of crops (if you believe that) – and at the same time these fertilizers bind up any free sulfur available in rain water used for the sulfur cycle in plants.
In 1954 chemical fertilizers, which lacked bio-available sulfur, were mandated by our government. Since that time the rates of disease in the U.S. have increased by nearly 4,000 percent.
The United States government is making a tragic mistake
Finland was one of the few other countries that authorized using chemical fertilizers in the early 1950’s. Early in 1980, Finland became alarmed over the increasing disease rate of its population and banned all chemical fertilizers. Both the U.S. and Finland were at the same per-capital disease levels, but only Finland chose to do something for its citizens.
Finland became a leading supplier of bio-friendly completely organic foods. Their disease rates have dropped to one tenth (10%) of the 1985 levels. As there disease rate continues to drop in Finland, U.S. disease rates continue to climb.
Why are cancer rates growing out-of-control?
The West Coast Organic Sulfur Project, which began in Vancouver, Canada, took a closer look at the role of sulfur in cancer prevention. It got its inspiration from the Cellular Matrix Study known as ‘The Sulfur Study’ – which showed a fatal type of breast cancer responded to organic sulfur.
The study results demonstrated the connection between the lack of sulfur in the diet, and inability of the body’s cells to regenerate. The West Coast Organic Sulfur Study reported that sulfur is the mineral deficiency, which is responsible for the greatest increase in disease in North America.
It showed that countries using chemical fertilizers have an increase in disease, while those that use organically-based fertilizing methods do not.
Sulfur forms many compounds that are analogs of oxygen compounds and it has a unique action on body tissues. It decreases the pressure inside the cell. In removing fluids and toxins, sulfur affects the cell membrane.
Sulfur is present in all cells and forms sulfate compounds with sodium, potassium, magnesium, and selenium. Organic sulfur, in addition to eliminating heavy metals, regenerates, repairs and rebuilds all the cells in the body.
How does sulfur prevent, even reverse cancer?
Sulfur is commonly used in Asia as an herbal medicine to treat inflammation and cancer. Organic sulfur has been studied on several types of cancers and has been found to have remarkable anti-cancer benefits.
Research has shown that garlic and related sulfur containing compounds inhibit carcinogen-induced tumors in different organs. As early as the late 1950’s, Weisberger and Pensky demonstrated the anti-cancer action of garlic. Follow-up studies further documented the protective effects of garlic against a number of cancers.
In laboratory animals, consumption of garlic and related sulfur compounds reduced carcinogen-induced mammary, colon, esophageal, lung, stomach, skin and liver tumors.
Collectively, preclinical investigations demonstrate consistently the anti-cancer power of garlic and related sulfur compounds – which appear to be independent of the organ site or the carcinogen employed.
Organic produce – including organic (raw) garlic – are the crucial element in this process. Organic sulfur can produce a surge of oxygen into cancer cells.
Organic garlic has been shown to promote early mitotic arrest followed by apoptotic (cancer cell suicide) – without affecting healthy cells. These studies show that sulfur not only prevents, but helps reverse cancer.
Remember, organic sulfur is found in food and has been proven to be more powerful than many chemotherapy drugs. If your doctor doesn’t appreciate the value of sulfur – find another doctor.
