Solutions To Our Health Care Debacle Can be Found In Nature.
IP6 and protease inhibitors. Did nature make a mistake? Whole grains and legumes contain a substance called phytic acid, which binds up minerals, especially iron, and escorts them out of the system. Phytic acid is a seed’s way of storing phosphorus, like a school lunch bucket. For decades in the later 20th century, nutritionists thought that phytic acid must have been some mistake or “anti-nutrient” in whole grains and legumes, hence providing even more enthusiasm for processing grains down to white flour.
Lowers Risk for Various Cancers
In fact, we now find that phytic acid is one of the key ingredients in plant food lowering the risk for various cancers, kidney stones, heart disease, and liver disease. Best sources include beans, brown rice, sesame seeds, and corn. Phytic acid is now sold as a nutrition supplement: IP6, inositol hexaphosphate 6. In a similar vein, protease inhibitors are substances in legumes, especially soybeans, which can inhibit enzymes that break down protein in the gut. Again, nutritionists thought of protease inhibitors as “anti-nutrients”. Raw legumes are unhealthy.
Retard Cancer Growth
However, there is now compelling evidence that these protease inhibitors actually are very therapeutic in retarding cancer growth, and even allowing humans to better tolerate radiation without serious side effects. Protease inhibitor drugs are now the fashionable trend in the pharmaceutical industry in slowing down the growth of viruses, including AIDS. Nature knows what it is doing. Do not bet against the wisdom of whole foods. Foods as simple as fresh lemons can be added to your diet

Health Care Created by Dr. Frankenstein
The cost of health care in America is obscene. Only the super rich and indigent are covered by adequate health insurance. For the 47 million Americans with no health insurance, health catastrophes have become a primary reason for bankruptcy and divorce. If you are on Welfare, Social Security, or other government doles, then you have some security against health problems. Border states from California to Florida spend many billions annually treating illegal aliens and providing full neonatal care for their newborns, who then become “anchor” babies, allowing the parents to become legal citizens. Yet millions of tax paying American-born citizens have no health care. Optimal health is possible with these simple methods.
Get Medical Coverage for Free!
And if you really want full medical, dental, and psychiatric coverage for free, then commit a crime. I am not kidding. In 1976, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that prisoners are entitled to full medical, dental, vision, psychiatric, and pharmaceutical benefits. California is on the ragged edge of bankruptcy and thus must release 55,000 prisoners because their prison care is considered inadequate. In March of 2009, a court appointed receiver ordered the state of California to spend $8 billion to upgrade prison medical facilities in spite of the $42 billion deficit the state faces
