American STEM Education Conspiracy

Americans are being dumb down.The American education system is teaching students what to think and not how to think.  The YouTube video above is exactly correct that if United States did not continue to import PhD students from foreign countries our economy would completely collapse.  The observation that freshman chemistry physics and engineering and mathematics classes are designed to fail a majority of students is also exactly correct. 

We say that we want to encourage more students to seek an education in the hard core math and sciences.  However our education system does exactly the opposite by discouraging most of the students. students who wanted to be engineers or scientists are going to the medical field have such a bad experience in their freshman courses today instead give up and go into the softer social sciences and then are discouraged when they have a hard time finding a job after they graduate. 

I was blessed to understand from a very early age that I would need to know chemistry very well to get into medical school.  I also knew I wasn't particularly good at it. So, while I was in high school I took all the chemistry that I could; even taking University chemistry courses in the summer so I could get as much background in chemistry as I could going into my poorly-taught college freshman chemistry classes. 

The investment paid off.  I not only graduated with a bachelors in biochemistry but I also have a masters in biochemistry and graduated from medical school and I am a board-certified  emergency medicine physician. But just like the US is outsourcing our technical and manufacturing jobs, we are also beinging to outsource our medical care.

2 Studies that Explain the World

A British study demonstrates that Elite families made their fortunes in the 1100s.  In other words, if you didn't make your fortune in the middle ages, you are "new money".

Zurich Institute of Technology study shows that 147 companies rule the world. Searching a database of 43,000 transnational companies, 147 controlling companies were themselves controlled by a relatively small group of mega-rich shareholders.

Water: Energy, Purity, Health

I have saveral posts on this blog that talk about the 10 great questions. Some of these questions have been answered but those answers have not yet been widely adopted. Others have yet to be answered. The questions are: Religion, Government, Economy, Energy, Health, Water, Food, Education, Housing, and Transportation.

I was watching a Ted Talk today on water and it was discussing a 4th phase of water called EZ water that forms on waterdroplets and hydrophilic surfaces that explains many of the unusual physical properties of water such as cohesion and capillary flow.  It turns out that at these boundaries, there is a significant separation of charge that is energized by infared light that could be harnessed in the development of free energy batteries.  This EZ water phenomenon could also be used to purify water and its interaction with NIR light could be a secret to improved health and healing.

Republicans Control Consequences

Many in America are hopeful that come January, the Republican-controlled Senate and House will get America back on track. However, there may also be consequences.

Over the past 6 years since the Housing crash in 2008 which was an engineered crash, we have seen the government signing up millions of Americans onto federal Welfare and Disability programs. The plan was to get as many unemployed onto the disability category and out of the unemployment category and even welfare category. 

In the last year or so, I have begun to see a shift in policy even before the Republicans have taken office.  The Obama administration is beginning to investigate and audit welfare and disability recipients and in many cases not only deny payment but assess penalties for claimed fraud violations without a court of law. 

In a most recent development a friend of mine on disability says the government is asking the insurance provider at his previous employment to assess whether or not the insurance provider is responsible for covering disability of my friend. So, what is happening is that the Federal government is requiring private insurance to investigate whether they think my friend really is disabled. 

The Federal government has already approved my friend's disability. But who knows but if my friend's past insurer investigates and judges that they don't think he is disabled and therefore not responsible to pay any disability, then the Federal government may also come back and deny disability as well.  They may even assess fines without a judge or jury.

Another development is in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).  Several states like South Carolina have ruled to refuse provide state exchanges.  Pres. Obama has in response decided to go outside the law and set up a federal exchange which the Surpreme Court may rule is unconstitutional.  

What I see here is several trends that may be converging to put the squeeze on the nation's poor.  If welfare is abruptly cut, like in Rome to the Foeterati, we may see civil unrest. In a gun-saturated state like South Carolina, it would be a shame to see riots leading to gun violence leading to casualties.  The consequence may be a push towards gun confiscation.

Russia and China are prepping to challenge and even destroy the West if they can.  One last hurddle to Western decapitation and conquest is gun-confication.  You might think it odd to suggest Republican's are going along with a Communist plan.  The Republicans and Democrats, Communist and Tea Parties are going along with a plan, but it is globalists.

Bank of International Settlement Basel 1 Accords crushed the Japanese economy.  Basel 2 caused the housing collapse.  Basel 3 implementation would crush the entire Western banking system which is way over-leveraged with trillions of derivatives. However, accirding to the BIS website, Basel 3 implementation has been posponed to 2019.  If Basel 3 ends the REPO market, everything falls apart.

Central Banks Print Money =>  Big Banks borrow free => Big Banks buy bonds => Big Banks swap bonds for cash on REPO market => Big Banks buy their own stock => Big Bank stock Holders cash out and move to Paraguay. => US creates record billionaires => QE money lines elites pockets. => sterilization limits inflation. (All Big Corps are also Banks after end of Glass-Steagall)

BIS BASEL 3 Accords call for banks to hold onto more cash reserves. This is an excuse for banks to not lend money to public (inflationary) but hold onto FED cash and prop up stock market (sterilization).

Mitt Romney in Augusta, GA Today

2012 Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney is on the campaign trail in 2014, but not for himself. I went to go see Mitt Romney stump for Republican candidates today at Edgar's Grill in Martinez, GA today. Romney is busy campaigning with Republican candidates challenging Democrat incumbents in key battleground districts. The Republican Party is looking at Georgia's 12th Congressional District race between Congressman Barrow and challenger Rick Allen as a potential race where they can pick up an additional seat in the House of Representatives. Mitt Romney, congressional challenger Rick Allen and Senatorial candidate David Purdue all showed up to talk about gaining seats in the US Senate and changing party leadership. According to them, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is sitting on a mountain of bipartisan legislation that, under orders from Pres. Obama, he is not bring up to the Senate for a vote. Then at the same time he is blocking legislation, Pres. Obama is labeling congress, "The Do-Nothing Congress".

As I listen to candidates speak, it is frustrating that you can't communicate back to them. You are lucky at a campaign rally to shake their hands. But unless you get to ask a question at a town hall meeting, all you can do is listen to their stump speeches. If I could talk to Mitt Romney, here is some of what I would wish to tell him.

The controlled media has outdone themselves attacking you again and again. The media continually came out with one stealth attack after another. They call you “flip-flopper”, “insider”, “off-shore-er”, “out-of-touch”. When you hear these attacks-- first, do not believe them. Second, address them publicly and directly. Being labeled an “insider” would give you a great opportunity to talk about how you are not a member of the CFR or how you do not attend globalist meetings or at least how you do not agree with their policy or their political influence. You are not a “flawed candidate” because you have the “spirit of prophecy” which is a true testimony of Jesus Christ. If someone calls you “flawed” tell them we are all flawed, but that you believe in Jesus and He makes up the difference.

LDS love the US Constitution. A lot of fear mongering was focused on people's mistrust of the LDS faith. I would have liked to have heard you remind us what a Constitution-loving people we are; even despite our early persecution. I think the LDS Church is unique in our belief that the US Constitution is inspired by God and is akin to scripture. The US Constitution and constitutional government is part of every LDS member's religion. If all political power were handed over to the LDS Church President, the first thing he would do is call for constitutional elections. Continually redirect all questions to this point. I am LDS because I appreciate it's emphasis on Christ's grace not only forgiving us but also how Christ's grace helps us improve and become better. I want a religion that gives me opportunities to help and serve others and that helps me be a better person. I want a religion that has high expectations, that builds strong families, and that loves Constitutional government.

The choice between Romney and Obama was a spiritual one. Romney represented real repentant-type change. Think about what he does for a living. When there is a failing company, he comes in and cuts away the bad and keeps the good to return the company to profitability. Romney did the same thing with the Olympics and Mass. Romney-style Restructuring and a return to profitability is exactly what America needed.

Instead of praise for Romney's success in saving many failing businesses, the media choose to only focus on the corrupt business these companies were engaged in. I am not surprised these failing businesses were engaged in sketchy stuff. That's why they were bankrupt. The media also just focused on the few jobs lost during restructuring instead on focusing on the jobs saved and the return of the company to healthy productivity.

Obama's presidency has been all about the welfare-style bailout: individual, corporate, and economic. Just think about what welfare does to a person. When you bail someone out, you enable the bad unprofitable behavior that got them into the situation in the first place. Look at GM. Instead of restructuring, they are continuing to build $90,000 Volts in China and selling them for $35,000. The same thing is going on in banking as well as the federal government. We are just bailing out these systems time and again without making any real fundamental changes that will lead to any type of return to profitability. Banks, GM, federal government, and individual citizens are continuing to do the same unprofitable things that got them into trouble in the first place.

Evil never voluntarily gives up power. When the Soviet Union faked it's demise in 1991, western investors entered Russia and built up its oil and gas infrastructure. Over the next 20+ years , Europe paid Russia double the US rate for gasoline and natural gas. Russia was supposed to use this money to disarm their Cold War nuclear arsenal. Instead of disarming, Russia has been admittedly stockpiling highly enriched uranium instead of converting the weapons-grade fissile material into reactor-grade material. While the US is unilaterally de-MIRV'ing our aging nuclear deterrent, Russia has modernized every missile and weapon's system in their arsenal. The counter to China's “carrier-killer” DF-21D medium range, anti-ship, ballistic missile is the Zumwalt Class Stealth Destroyer with its EM Railgun. Of the 32 Stealth Destroyers planned, we have only 1 completed and only 2 more are being built. This is only 1 of many similar examples. The military may be spending money but not where it is needed. Next-Gen Tech is being mismanaged by waste, overspending, and then cuts (MX, F-22, F-35, etc).

The Book of Mormon warns us against “secret combinations” that will seek to overthrow the freedom of all nations (Ether 8:25). These secret combinations are not just living in a cave in Syria or Afghanistan. Like the Nephites, they have infiltrated the highest echelons of our government and judicial system and are bent on bringing about our entire destruction.

I am concerned with the decisions that come out of regular meetings of the world elite. Several times a year, world elite, Past and future US Presidents, cabinet members, royalty, media moguls, Forbes 100 CEOs, Ivy League University Presidents, Defense Contractors, FED chairman, etc meet at places like Bohemian Grove, or the Davos Conference, the Bilderberg Conference, the G20 Economic conference, or the Council on Foreign Relations. While at these variously titled meeting, these same powerful and wealthy elite set a world agenda which greatly influences and affects US domestic and foreign policy and our laws. Many of these elite serve as advisers to the President of the US. Citizens are concerned that these meetings of the global elite constitute a subversive anti-American government of the elite, by the elite, and for the elite.

The US Revolution was not only fought over “taxation without representation.” The US Revolution was also fought over control over our own capital and credit. If you wanted to start a business, you had to go to England for money. If you threatened their market share or where not one of their good-ol-boys, you didn't get the money. When the Federal Reserve Act was passed in 1913, we conceded what our forefathers shed blood to preserve for us.

In addition to states rights and slavery, the US Civil War was also fought over tariffs. The South didn't initially industrialize because they depended on slave labor. Eventually, the South realized that the machine beat the man. The South resented having to pay high prices to the North and they resented paying high tariffs for cheaper imported slave-produced goods.

Utah Senator and LDS Apostle Reed Smoot is blamed for worsening the Great Depression via the Hawley-Smoot Tariff Act. However, not everyone agrees that tariffs caused the Great Depression. Milton Friedman and Anna Schwartz have argued this point for decades. In addition, former FED Chair Ben Bernake also is a disciple of Friedman.

2002: Ben Bernanke speaks at Milton Friedman's 90th Birthday and jokes that Milt was correct all along that the FED caused the great depression by contracting the money supply in a fractional reserve system. Later Ben Bernake again supports Milton Friedman's position at a leture :

"Let me end my talk by abusing slightly my status as an official representative of the Federal Reserve. I would like to say to Milton and Anna: Regarding the Great Depression. You're right, we did it. We're very sorry. But thanks to you, we won't do it again."

2004:  Ben Bernanke speaking at the Washington and Lee University, Lexington, Virginia again expresses support for the monetarist theory of money, and the FED's role in exacerbating the Great Depression by increasing interest rates several times, and advocating several banking holidays which exacerbated cash and gold hording.

"Finally, perhaps the most important lesson of all is that price stability should be a key objective of monetary policy. By allowing persistent declines in the money supply and in the price level, the Federal Reserve of the late 1920s and 1930s greatly destabilized the U.S. economy and, through the workings of the gold standard, the economies of many other nations as well."

Ben Bernanke knew what he was doing when he decided to not release M3, then implemented the BASIL 2 Accords in 2007 doing to the US what BASIL 1 did to Japan in 1989. Bernanke has said that he has learned his lesson from the Great Depression and that is why he agrees with TARP and the continued Quantitative Easing. The truth is that the lesson from the Great Depression is that fractional-reserve banking is inherently unstable, regular banks should only lend for real assets (venture capital can invest in stock), and the US needs to be self-reliant, protectionist, and maintain strong tariffs. We have squandered away our childrens' inheritance through legislation like NAFTA and GAD. We can solve labor problems using technology and mechanization instead of exploiting 3rd-world labor.

The US is printing 1 Trillion dollars of bailout money a year. How is all this fiat money not resulting in greater inflation? Part of the answer is “sterilization”. The FED prints money and lends it to banks at zero % interest. Many businesses set themselves up to be banks to cash in on the free money. These FED-member banks borrow free money and then purchase US bonds and credit-default-swaps (bond insurance). This purchasing of US bonds floats US deficits and debt. But bond yields are terrible so then then the banks exchange bonds on the REPO market for cash and re-invest that REPO cash into the stock market. Banks and companies essentially buy their own stock and artificially inflate the price. At the same time the insiders cash out their stock options and move to South America.

This is sterilization. The REPO market assures that the trillions of dollars of bailout money line the pockets of a fortunate few. The low interest rates and bailout money never trickles down to the general public and the media reports that the US has generated a record number of billionaires in the last 10 years.  If low interest rates were passed on to the housing market, we would see much higher inflation then we have been seeing.  On the other hand, if BASIL 3 ends the REPO market we may see a collapse. The current system of insanity is completely unsustainable. But, I can only speculate that it will have the status quo until WW3 and then the globalist bankers can just walk away from all the debt. The FED can't get stuck with the blame for a collapse if they eventually want the US to give up our sovereignty to fight Russia and China in the coming war.

We are to choose our our leaders based on virtue and not merit. My apologies to Ayn Rand, but who decides what is of merit? God has decided what is virtuous. Our only hope to save our country, and preserve our rights, and freedom is a return to virtue.

Ebola Containment Improbability

The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa is much more of a big deal than previous outbreaks.  Ebola was first identified in 1976 and is named after the Ebola River in the Democratic Republic of the Congo which was recognized as Zaire at that time.  Ebola likely circulated in primates and occasionally infected humans who handled and consumed wild primate and other bush meat.  However, the sporatic Ebola outbreaks usually burned themselves out because 1. the virus was 90% lethal 2. poor medical care 3. no easy travel 4. easier to quarantine small remote tribes and villages.

The current Ebola epidemic is a much different thing all together.  The current Ebola strain is much more dangerous because it is actually less lethal.  With a 50-60% mortality rate, and longer incubation time of up to 21 days, the infection is not burning itself out but has spread into the larger towns and cities in Liberia and Sierra Leone. More survivors means more chance to expose others.  

The 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic only had a 3-5% mortality, 500 million were sickened, and 50-100 million died.  Ebola isn't as easily transmissible as flu, but with the vomiting, diarhea, and bleeding associated with end-stage Ebola; it is not surprising that Ebola is spreading among healthcare workers and close contacts.

It is estimated that over 1 million people are currently in quarantine in West Africa. With ten thousand passengers leaving West Africa every single day; It is only a matter of time before this disease is carried to every corner of the world.  The Ebola cluster in Dallas will likely be cleared up, but it is only a matter of time before more clusters break out.  Eventually, we could see the level of outbreak clusters exceed our public health resources.

West Africa has miles and miles of shanty towns filled with millions of people who likely have no government documentation that they even exist or that even have an address.  This makes quarantine measures nearly impossible.  These poor area could serve as a reservior for Ebola infection that just continues to burn and smolder for years.

West Africa needs our help in terms of money, and resources, etc.  However, in addition to money, the US needs to be working on a vaccine, and putting all of West Africa on quarantine.  No US airline should be permitted to travel to or from West Africa.  Also, the US doesn't need to be approving any travel visas from anyone who originates or has traveled through West Africa.  American citizens returning from West Africa should be quarantined 31 days.  At the least, if Liberians are permitted to travel to the US, then require that they be quarantined for 31 days.

But even if the US implements all these measures, US measures won't stop spread to South and Central America.  If Ebola takes hold in the Americas, thennit is only a matter of time before it crosses the US border.  Accordingly, I think all the US military be brought home from Syria and wherever else and put in the US border to secure it.

ISIS and Syria

The US and Israel have been wanting to go to war with Syria and Iran for some time.  Israel wants Iran taken down because of their desire to develop nuclear weapons for use against Israel.  However, Israel cannot go to war with Iran until Assad in Syria is taken out. If Israel were to attack Iran, Syria would attack Israel from the north and Israel would be fighting a war on 2 fronts. 

Well, America almost had an excuse to take out Assad last year after the chemical weapons attacks which were blamed on the Assad regime. America was just about to begin open military operations when Secretary of State Kerry gave Assad an out by telling reporters that Syria could avoid war if it surrendered its chemical weapons to an international coalition.  Putin immediately stepped in, taking advantage of Kerry's blunder. 

Instead of attacking Assad openly and directly, the US has had to fight Assad covertly.  The same Saudi Arabian Mujahideen fighters in Afghanistan were later called Alqaeda and blamed for the 911 Attack.  This same Saudi-funded group was sent to Libya to overthrow Qaddafi.  After Libya these terrorists, now called ISIS, were sent to Syria to overthrow Assad.  

The New York Times claims ISIS is being funded by oil money from wells they now control in Northern Syria.  This is only partly true if at all.  ISIS has only recently controlled these areas in Northern Syria, These mercenaries are a quick study when it comes to the oil business. And who are they selling oil to?  Not Assad, not Putin.  Putin is on Assad's team. Therefore, ISIS must still be funded by Saudi Arabia and covertly by the US via Benghazi.

Now in Syria, ISIS has been allowed to spill over into Iraq nearly unopposed. This seems like a pretty bone-headed move by ISIS since they were supposed to be a NATO ally helping us depose Assad.  ISIS should have know that they would have no cover in Iraq from US attacks. The only thing that makes sense is that ISIS was ordered to spill over into Iraq and that these high-profile beheadings are propaganda to gain domestic and international support for NATO to bomb Assad openly and directly.

So, here is the globalist plan. While the US and Saudi Arabia continue to fund the good moderate rebels in Syria as opposed to the bad radical rebels (what's the difference?), ISIS is taking over Syrian military instillations . After ISIS takes over, the US comes in and bombs the heck out of the Syrian military base making sure to take out Assad's jet fighters along the way just to make sure the ISIS people don't get them.  Not that any of them could fly an advanced jet fighter.  But these Jihadis are good, just look at how they flew those airliners into the WTC after failing a few flying lessons in Florida.

After, Syria and Iran, then what?  Putin has said on several occasions that if the NATO were to violate the sovereignty of other nations like Syria and Iran that Russia would not rule out a nuclear attack on NATO. So, far Russia together with China have been modernizing and prepping for just such a doomsday attack.

Ebola Threat and Illegal Immigration

Prior to the current outbreak, Ebola was so deadly, with a greater than 90% mortality, it always seemed to burn itself out.  The current Ebola strain with a 50% mortality is actually much more of a threat precisely because it is less virulent.  50% mortality means 50% survivability which means more carriers that can unknowingly infect others.  
The 1918 Spanish flu only had a 2.5% mortality rate. But that flu strain spread across the world.  2.5% of several billion is still a big number.  

The CDC has a patent on a particular strain of Ebola virus. According to patent law, you cannot patent nature.  But you could patient a virus strain that you genetically engineered. I hope CDC scientists weren't stupid enough to genetically engineer a less-virulent Ebola that would turn out to be more deadly overall.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) potentially has some of the greatest political power of any government entity.  In the face of an outbreak of a deadly pathogen, HHS can lock a person, family, group or community away in quarantine for an indefinite  period of time. During the days of Leprosy (Hansen's Disease), sufferers were banished to Leper colonies. 

The problem with Africa and their attempts to contain Ebola is that African officials will order an entire family to be quarantined together if one family member contracts the disease.  This quarantine policy actually increases the odds that family members will be exposed, contract, and spread Ebola.  Accordingly, instead of alerting WHO officials or seeking medical care for sick family members, Families are just disposing of dead bodies in the street for fear of being placed in quarantine.

There is a considerable risk of Ebola coming into the US by way of illegal immigration through the porous Mexican-US border.  Illegals are arrested and instead of being immediately deported are sent to be processed in several Homeland Security residential centers. In addition to spreading TB, flu, and many other infectious diseases, an illegal with Ebola could potentially spread Ebola to hundreds of other illegals in these residential centers. After being processed, illegals are then sent on to any city in the US until their court date which is set months into the future. In this way, one Ebola carrier processed at one of these Homeland Security Residential Centers could potentially spread ebola throughout the country.

Genetically Engineered Master and Servant Class

When it comes to civil union, two consenting adults should be free to live together and have all the insurance, inheritance, medical decision making and tax benifits/penalties as anyone else.

But, when it comes to marriage, what is the difference between civil union and marriage? The difference is the right and responsibility to genetically create offsping and responsibility to raise those offspring. 

The biological production of children is exactly why marriage is a legal issue. Children that are not provided for become a liability to the community.

Additionally to legal and spiritual concerns are serious biological issues here. There already has been the development of technology for a male-male or female-female couple to biologically reproduce using a donor egg from a third person.

Marriage is a civil rights issue but not of the same-gender couple but the unborn child who has the right to receive a genetic inheritance from both a male and female.

The consequences of non-random genenetic recombination is the creation of trans-human breeds. Phenotypically trans-human breeds may display more variation, but genetically they will have less diversity and be less fit and like the domesticated dog, will never again have the strength to stand up against the wolf.

This whole same-gender issue is about demoralizing America and taking a big eugenics step towards enslaving the human race and creating a master class and servant class. (see Georgia Guidestones)

Substances that provide protection from ionizing radation:

N-acetyl-cystein: increases and stabilizes intracellular glutathione

Milk/Whey/Egg Protein: increases and stabilizes intracellular glutathione

Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salt): sulfate increases intacellular glutathione

Serotonin (5HT)- stimulates and stabilizes antioxidative enzymes.  

Meletonin: stimulates and stabilizes antioxidative enzymes. Increases glutathione.

Zinc Aspartate: stabilized zinc-thiol complexes.

Desferoxamine: induces intacellular hypoxia and decreases reactive oxygen radicals and oxidative stress 

Resveratrol (red grapes): antioxidant free-radical scavenger.

Amifostine: used to proect against platinum chemotherapy agents.

Aloe: heals but does not prevent radiation dermatitis, prevents apoptosis, decreases insulin resistance, antioxidant free-radical scavenger

B6/B9/B12 (Pyridoxine/Folate/Cobalamin): Required for the production of cysteine and methionine required for glutathione synthesis.

Sulfate and Sunlight

While some claim we are just measuring better.  Many believe we are seeing an explosion of inflammatory disease such as Alzheimers, athrosclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, etc.  Researchers looking into many of these diseases find higher levels of cholesterol and cholesterol sulfate in the area of pathology.  This has led researchers to believe cholesterol was the culprit.  So what we have done is target cholesterol as the enemy and reduce it from our diets and pharmicologically. 

However, instead of improved health we have seen a decline.  People may be living longer but only thanks to hundreds and thousands of dollars worth of prescription medicines that don't cure these diseases but just barely keep us alive and dependent on numerous medications.

Well, a small minority of other researchers are just now beginning to believe that the elevated cholesterol in the setting of disease may not be the cause of disease but may be a sign of the body scavenging cholesterol sulfate to use the needed sulfate elseware.  The liver makes plenty of cholesterol every day.  But if the body can't get sulfate in the diet directly or by converting sulfur aminoacids, it may scavenge sulfate from healthy tissue.  

So, diseases that were once seen as linked to cholesterol toxicity, may instead be related to sulfate and sunlight deficiency.  Sunlight catalyzes the sulfation of cholesterol in addition to activating vitamin D. 

I can't say that I am convinced one way or another.  All I can say is that this war on cholesteol has so far not worked, and I don't believe that God created eggs, milk and butter to be poisons. But that is what the mainstream would have us believe .  A proposed experimental treatment for sulfate deficiency would be 1/4 tsp epsom salt twice a day and 20 minutes of sun light. 

It is also important to avoid food additives thricalcium phosphate, aluminum phosphate, sodium benzoate as well as certain medicinces like tylenol that deplete sulfate and glutathione. 

Chem Biol Interact. 1998 Apr 3;110(3):189-202. The glutathione dependence of inorganic sulfate formation from L- or D-cysteine in isolated rat hepatocytes. Huang J1, Khan S, O'Brien PJ.

The GSH dependence of the metabolic pathways involved in the conversion of cysteine to sulfate in intact cells has been investigated. It was found that hepatocyte-catalysed sulfate formation from added L-cysteine did not occur if hepatocyte GSH was depleted beforehand, but was restored when GSH levels recovered. Furthermore, sulfate formation did not recover in GSH-depleted hepatocytes if GSH synthesis was prevented with buthionine sulfoximine. Thiosulfate formation was, however, markedly enhanced in GSH-depleted hepatocytes. These results suggest that thiosulfate is an intermediate in the formation of inorganic sulfate from L-cysteine and that GSH was required for the conversion of thiosulfate to inorganic sulfate. Much less sulfate was formed if the cysteine was replaced with cysteinesulfinate. Furthermore, sulfate formation from L-cysteine was markedly inhibited by the addition of the transaminase inhibitor DL-cycloserine or the gamma-cystathionase inhibitor DL-propargylglycine. The major routes of sulfate formation from L-cysteine therefore seems to involve pathways that do not involve L-cysteinesulfinate. Similar amounts of sulfate were formed from D-cysteine as L-cysteine. Thiosulfate instead of sulfate was also formed in GSH-depleted hepatocytes. However, sulfate formation from D-cysteine differed from L-cysteine in that it was inhibited by the D-aminoacid oxidase inhibitor sodium benzoate and was not affected by transaminase or gamma-cystathionase inhibitors. These results suggest that thiosulfate is an intermediate in sulfate formation from D-cysteine and involves the oxidation of D-cysteine by D-amino acid oxidase to form beta-mercaptopyruvate.

Creation Comparison: Genesis, Moses, Abraham and LDS Perspective

Here is a comparison chart of the Creation Periods as explained in Genesis, Moses, Abraham, and from the LDS Perspective.

The LDS Perspective makes a lot of sense to my mind in 3 areas:

1. Grass grows only after day and night divided and sun, moon, and stars appear.
2. Separation of Light and Darkness/Day and Night emphasized over the creation of light and dark.

Light and Dark, like the materials used to form the Earth ,are eternal and have always existed.

3. Creation of man different day than creation of animals.

It is also significant that the creation of man is the only part of creation in which the Father personally participates by saying "Let us make man in our image". Putting the creation of man on its own day separate from the animals serves to further emphasize the divine origin of man.

Inorganic Sulfate, Tylenol, and Asthma

Several recent studies have identified a strong correlation between tylenol exposure and asthma.  According to one study, just a single dose of tylenol before age 1 increased the odds ratio of developing asthma by 60%.  Children who reveived 1 dose of tylenol monthly had over a 500% increased odds of developing asthma.   

But correlation doesn't equal causation.  What could be the causal link between tylenol and asthma.  The Liver is tasked with detoxifying tylenol. Phase 1 metabolism produces the NAPQI free radical that depletes glutathione, a major antioxidant in the body.  NAPQI is what kills people who overdose on tylenol.  Phase 2 metabolism involves sulfate conjugation which makes tylenol more water soluble and better able to be excreted by the kidney. It may be that both mechanisms lead to asthma and other chronic inflammatory illnesses via glutathione and sulfate deficiency.

Some doctors and scientists are just now 
beginning to hypothesize that inorganic sulfate deficiency may be directly related to numerous chronic inflammatory illnesses like asthma. The interesting thing to consider is which medicines like Tylenol deplete sulfate via sulfate conjugation as well as the many sulfate-containing medicines used to treat these disorders.

Medicines that require phase 2 sulfate conjugation:

Vitamin D
Bile Acids

Food additives that deplete dietary inorganic sulfate:

Aluminum Phosphate (baking powder)
Tricalcium Phosphate (juice additive) 
Sodium Benzoate (food preservative, metabolite of cinnamon)

These first two additives react with soluble inorganic sulfate in the food producing insoluble aluminum sulfate (Alum) and calcium sulfate (Gypsum). The food preservative sodium benzoate is a d-aminoacid oxidase inhibitor.  Sodium Benzoate blocks the thiosulfate intermediate β-mercaptopyruvate in sulfate formation from d-cysteine.

Sulfated medicines used to treat chronic inflammatory disease:

Magnesium Sulfate- asthma
Albuterol Sulfate- asthma
Terbutaline Sulfate- asthma
Condroitin Sulfate- osteoarthritis
Glucosamine Sulfate- osteoarthritis
Plaquenil Sulfate- lupus, rheumatoid 
Codeine Sulfate- pain, cough
Morphine Sulfate- pain, cough
Heparin Sulfate- clotting disorders

Serum sulfate levels are tightly controlled in the body and do not necessarily reflect total body sulfate levels.  The body doesn't necessarily need dietary inorganic sulfate but can produce sulfate through a complex process by converting sulfur amonoacids cysteine and methionine into sulfate using folate and B12 and other B-vitamins.  Serum Homocysyeine is a great surragate marker for inorganic sulfate deficiency and indicates when the body is catabolically scavenging sulfate from the body tissues.  

Serum Homocystein levels are elevated in many chronic inflammatory conditions.  However, lowering these levels by supplementing with folate and B12 never reversed the disease process.  It may be that supplementing with Epsom salt (MgSO4) will.

I noticed that B-vitamins and Taurine are popular additives to many energy drinks. Interesting that all these additives are related to sulfate metabolism.

Homocysteine, Sulfate Deficiency and Chronic Disease

I've been on the Sulfate bandwagon this past week. Studies and commentary by Dr. Seneff at MIT and others suggest that some chronic autoimmune disorders may also be related to Sulfate deficiency and are linked to elevated homocysteine in the blood. 

If the body doesn't get Sulfate in the diet then it will convert the amino-acid cysteine into Sulfate using a complex mechanism requiring many B-vitamins. 

If the body doesn't get enough cysteine amino-acid in the diet, it will steal sulfate and cysteine from the body (catabolic vs. anabolic). Elevated homocysteine is a manifestation of this catabolic Sulfate deficient state. B-vitamins lower the homocysteine but don't reverse the catabolic sulfate deficient state.

The experiment:
1/4 tsp epsom salt twice-a-day
avoid tylenol (causes sulfate deficiency)
20 minutes of unfiltered natural sunlight with UVB.

Most don't get enough sulfate in the diet because industrial farms aren't using ammonium sulfate fertilizer.  Instead "Big-Agra" is using ammonium nitrate and urea (double nitrate per pound). Even food from organic farms can be sulfate poor because they use manure from soy and corn-fed animals which are both sulfate poor feeds. There is not much sulfate in grass either. Sulfate is almost considered a pollutant but at the same time the government recommendatuons on Sulfate say if you add it to the soil, you get leafier plants.

Sulfate and Chronic Disease

Inorganic Sulfate is one of the most abundant anions in human and mammalian plasma. Sulfate plays an important physiological role in detoxifying xenobiotics, activating steroids, cholesterol, vitamin D, neurotransmitters, and bile acids. Sulfate is needed for the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans, cerebroside sulfate, and heparin sulfate.  Sulfate conjugation is a major liver pathway necessary for detoxifying and excreting toxins in the body and bloodsteam.  In mammals, sulfate homeostasis is regulated by the kidney. The majority of filtered sulfate is reabsorbed in the proximal tubules, and only 5–20% of the filtrate is excreted into the urine.

A few recent scientific papers are making a possible connection between serum sulfate levels and several chronic diseases including: osteoarthritis, preeclampsia, dementia, inflammatory bowel disease, peptic ulcer disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, DIC, asthma, eczema, lupus, chronic fatigue, wrestless legs, multiple sclerosis, autism, heart disease and cancer. How could all these different conditions be related? Well, the thinking is that all these chronic diseases are related to serum sulfate deficiency, and the specific disease process depends on where in the body sulfate is being scavenged/cannabilized from. 

Interesting point here is that sulfate-containing medicines are already used in many of these disease processes. Magnesium sulfate is already used in preeclampsia, hypertension, and asthma. Vitamin D has been shown to improve symptoms in autism, multiple sclerosis, dementia, inflammatory bowel and numerous other autoimmune conditions. Chondroiton sulfate is used in osteoarthritis, and heparin sulfate is used in DIC.

What is the connection between vitamin D and sulfate?  Turns out sun exposure not only activates vitamin-D but also is required to produce cholesterol sulfate and vitamin-D sulfate. Cholesterol sulfate is then incorporated into cell walls and endoplasmic reticulum to increase cell wall plasticity, protect from oxidative damage, facilitate transmembrane glucose transport, and protein post-translation modifications. 

Tragically, despite its importance, sulfate metabolism is not discussed much if at all in modern medical education.  Also, serum and urinary sulfate levels are not routinely measured in the hospital or clinical settings. In fact in all my medical career, I have never seen or heard of a serum or urinary sulfate level being checked.  Sulfate concentration is easily measured using a barium assay.

Furthermore. there are several factors that can lead to deficiencies in sulfate levels.  1. Penicillin antibiotics kill nitrate-metabolizing bacteria in the gut but not sulfate-metabolizing bacteria. Sulfate-metabolizing bacteria overgrow and reduce whole-body sulfate levels. 2. Aluminum (Alum) containing adjuvant vaccines can lead to deficiencies in serum sulfate, vitamin D sulfate, and cholesterol sulfate.  3. Consumption of Alum-containing foods such as pickles, iodized salt, and baking powder can exacerbate these disease states.  4. Fasting followed by the consumption of a carbohydrate-only meal can lead to a significant 50% drop in serum sulfate levels. 5. Statins inhibit cholesterol syntheses in the liver and brain. 6. Oil-in-water squalene vaccines can result in anti-cholesterol and anti-vitamin D antibodies.  7. The increased clearance of vitamin D and cholesterol by the immune system because of either Alum or squalene adjuvants can lead to decreased total body serum sulfate levels. 8. Tylenol (acetaminophen) ingestion causes decreased sulfate levels due to liver detoxification via sulfate conjugation (phase 2) and consumption of the sulfur-containing glutathione antioxidant.

The key to treating many of these disease states may be simply to supplement the diet with magnesium sulfate or Epsom salt and vitamin D3.  Epsom salt is safe to consume orally except in those with kidney failure. Ingesting too much MgSO4 will be eliminated by the kidney or not absorbed at all, resulting in diarrhea. Like sodium, potassium, and calcium, it is important not to take more magnesium than the body needs and can excrete.  Despite what advertisements claim, sulfate is not absorbed in any significant way by adding MgSO4 to the bath water. The only benefit of an Epsom salt bath is that you can stay in longer without getting pruney.

A safe daily dose of Epsom salt is about 1/2 tsp MgSO4 in 8 oz. fluid.  This works out to be about 2.5 gm MgSO4.7H2O or 250 mg elemental magnesium (10%).  In addition to supplemental sulfate, 5000-10,000 units of vitamin D daily is also recommended.  For comparison, 10 minutes of sun expose produces 10,000 units of Vitamin D. However, in addition to vitamin D supplementation, getting at least 10 minutes of sun exposure daily is necessary to produce cholesterol sulfate.  

*****1 tsp MgSO4.7H2O (magnesium sulfate heptahydrate) = approx. 5 gm/tsp = 10% elemental Mg = 500 mg per tsp.
*****RDA of Magnesium is about 400 mg daily.

As far as cholesterol itself goes, the liver already makes 1-2 gm daily which is much more cholesterol than you could ever ingest by eating eggs (300-500 mg).  However, eating eggs is still important because the lecithin in egg yoke is required for efficient transport of cholesterol out of the liver. 

You might wonder why you can't just get enough sulfate in your diet without supplementing. The answer is because most food is grown using inorganic fertillizer which, except for Austrailia, does not include sulfur.  Even organically grown food can be sulfur deficient because the chickens and cattle that produce the manure are fed a sulfate poor feed (soy and corn) and consequently produce a sulfate-poor manure.

I believe God did not create the human body to have the myriad of chronic health problems we are now seeing. Even among those who try and eat healthy and exercise regularly are seeing an explosion of chronic disease. The way I see it, either God designed a flawed human body or we are ingesting something harmful (nitrites) and/or missing something essential in our diets (sulfates).

According to the Institute of Medicine, Food and Nutrition Board 2004 "Dietary Reference Intakes: Water, Potassium, Sodium, Chloride, and Sulfate", they give no recommended daily intake of sulfate. They list a long but still incomplete table of sulfate-containing biochemicals in the body.  However, their conclusion is that recycled sulfate from protein and dietary protein is probably enough. They also say sulfate is an industrial pollutant, tastes bad in well water, and could give you diarrhea. Also, they say supplemental sulfate could lead to ulcerative colitis. This assertion is based on a study finding of sulfur-metabolizing bacteria in the gut of patients with UC. (this dismissive attitude against sulfate makes me a little suspicious)

But as I point out above, the sulfur-metabolizing bacteria actually lower overall sulfate levels which is more likely the cause of UC and not the presence of the bacteria and the resultant hydrogen sulfide gas itself. For one thing, treatments targeting the bacteria do not cure the disease.  Correlation does not equal causation.

My argument in advocating for sulfate supplementation is precisely for the reason stated in the Institute of Medicine guidelines paper.  They say you don't need sulfate because you can simply cannabilize it from protein and other molecules.  This cannabilization I believe is precisely the cause of many of the chronic diseases we are seeing today.

FYI: I do not generally advocate vitamin or mineral supplementing.  I think in most cases, taking excess vitamins and minerals can cause more harm than good and studies have not shown benefit but increased harm (manganese, vitamin E, etc).

In mice lacking the vitamin D receptor (VDR), NaSi-1 expression in the kidney was reduced by 72% but intestinal NaSi-1 levels remained unchanged. In connection with these findings, urinary sulfate excretion was increased by 42% whereas serum sulfate concentration was reduced by 50% in VDR knockout mice. Moreover, levels of hepatic glutathione and skeletal sulfated proteoglycans were also reduced by 18 and 45%, respectively. (Yan et al., Critical role of vitamin D in sulfate homeostasis, 2004)

According to the national guidelines, the body metabolizes up to about 3 - 6 gm inorganic-source and organic-source sulfate daily. According to the article, at least 1.5 - 3 gm comes from inorganic-source sulfate in food and water and 1.5 -3 gm organic-source sulphate comes from digestion and breakdown of sulfur-amino-acids. However, they make a point that total dietary sulfate can be much less than 1.5 gm.  Soy and corn are poor quality protein sources precisely because of their low sulfur-amino-acid content.

MgSO4.7H2O -- Mg: 24, SO4: 32 + 16 x 4 = 98, 7H2O: 16 + 2 = 18 x 7 = 126
Total mass per mole = 248
% Mg = 24/248 = 10%
% SO4 = 98/248 = 40%

Interesting that 1/2 the mass of MgSO4 is water and there can be variation in how much 1 tsp weighs depending on humidity and storage from 4.5 gm/tsp to 6.5 gm/tsp.   But anyways, assuming about 1 tsp = 5 gm, then SO4 would be about 2 gm SO4. 1/4 tsp would be 500 mg SO4.

A study of Vets measuring serum sodium measured got a range of 0.2 mM to 0.5 mM.  It would be really super hard to predict an increase in serum levels by 500mg or 2 gm oral Sulfate because of considering absorption (80%), and elimination and whole body distribution. Like other electrolytes like Mg and K etc, the serum levels are only a tiny fraction of the whole body stores.  But I think that it is good when you are thinking about taking a supplement that you are within the ballpark. (considering normal kidney function).

Im curious if pernicious anemia (B12 deficiency) could be another manifestation of sulfate deficiency. If the body is sulfate deficient then it starts to scavenge it from various places in the body. When you don't get enough dietary sulfate the body will begin to cannibalize parts of the body to get it. Homocysteine is an inflammatory breakdown product of protein that then must be converted to sulfate via folate, thiamine, B12 etc. Elevated homocysteine can be a sensitive marker for B12 deficiency. Unless a patient has a deficiency in intrinsic factor, more B12 may not be the only answer. It may be that an elevated homocysteine level and low B12 indicates a catabolic state.

No Economic Collapse

[President Smith said that the conditions after the war would be "dreadful" - David H. Horne]

[For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark. (New Testament, Matthew 24:28)]

Yes, the FED is printing money and getting the US in debt that we can never repay. There is no way out of the hole we are digging. That said, there will be no collapse before war. The FED can continue to print money and bail Europe out until war comes. The threat of economic collapse is providing cover for the elite to prepare for nuclear WW3. However, when the elite come out of their bunkers, they will claim that Russia and China deceived them and that they had no idea Russia and China were expanding and modernizing their nuclear capability while the US has been unilaterally disarming.

After the attack on the West by Russia and China, the scheme is to trick the US into giving up our sovereignty to NATO to prosecute this war against the great communist threat.  Thus we walk right into the globalist hands.  The UN and their global warming/carbon tax is another bogie man which is meant to distract us from giving up sovereignty to NATO.

The FED will still print and bail out the world until Russia China deal the decapitating nuclear first-strike on the US. They know Obama is weak and carries the nuclear football and would stand down after a first-stike. US missiles are off "Launch on warning". Russia and China will likely not pass up on the opportunity to strike a weak president.

The threat of economic collapse is real but a cover. The FED knows they can keep this bailout game going until war (WW3) when they will just walk away from their debt, do a global reset and start over.

That said, before WW3, the globalist still need to confiscate weapons in the US. Russia and China can't effectively invade the US and martial law cannot effectively be maintained if everyone is armed.  So, there still needs to be some orchestrated event to motivate an attack on the second amendment. The random school shootings we have seen thus far were enough to rid guns from Europe but not the US.  Some have postulated that a limited collapse of the EBT system would generate instant riots and the sort if violence that could lead to gun confiscation. (this has been tested).  I just can't imagine what civilian force the President Obama referred to that would do the door-to-door confiscations.  We have seen these operations tested following Hurricane Katrina and the Boston Bombings.
