Truth About Vitamin Supplements; Don’t be Deceived!

An article written in January 1937 by Dr. Streck, titled “Further Studies on the Intoxication of Vitamin D” was intended to protect and deceive the general public.  The rest of this post will be quoted from a book, The Calcium Factor, by Dr. Bob Barefoot.  As you read this passage, ask yourself, Who is the benefactor of this change?

“While the Streck study was still underway, the medical authorities undertook another major initiative to deceive the public. In order to sway people from taking large doses of vitamins which they knew would cure them, they had to find a way to make people think that they were taking too much. First they began with the propaganda that vitamins may be toxic or could be toxic. Then they used reverse psychology to trick the public. They took the more crucial vitamins, vitamin D, vitamin E and vitamin A, and changed their units of measurement. Prior to this everything was measured in milligrams. For example, most women were taking 20 milligrams of vitamin D, which was 1/3rd the 60 milligrams of vitamin C they would get from eating an orange. The new units were called International Units or IUs and the 20 milligrams of vitamin D became 1,000,000 international units (IUs), which sounds like it is way too much to take. After all, the woman eating the orange was only getting 60 milligrams of vitamin C, how could she ever take 1,000,000 of vitamin D? So the average woman would take 400 IUs of vitamin D along with 60mg of vitamin C that she could get from eating an orange. The numbers to this day sound reasonable, even though they are ridiculous.  The reverse psychology or numbers psychology worked and appears to be even more effective today.  The problem is that even though the numbers sound reasonable, the reality is that the woman is now getting less than one-hundredth of the one milligram of vitamin D, thereby guaranteeing that disease would proliferate. Thus the AMA and FDA coalition had found a way to set the recommended daily allowances (RDAs) so low that disease would become locked in which in turn guarantees exorbitant profiteering by the drug industry and medical authorities. These actions have caused the pain and deaths of millions of Americans (25,000,000 from cancer alone since Otto Warburg (Nobel Prize Winner) issued his warning in 1966.”

How to evaluate Information

evaluate1

Information is all around us; we can seek out specific information or have it passively fed to us through a variety of media outlets.  Information should be measured by its value, usefulness and ultimately, who it is coming from (is it a trusted source without any ties to Multinational Corporations (i.e. Monsanto), or industries, like the pharmaceutical industry, or the Dairy Industry), whether it is useful (will it benefit the reader or the person it is coming from?) and whether it is the truth (simple, honest, truth with no ulterior motives tied to profit from its use). Keeping these three questions in mind will help you determine if the information you are receiving has any potential “Value” to your happiness or well-being.  According to The Oxford Dictionary, the definition of Value is, “The regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something; The material or monetary worth of something; The worth of something compared to the price paid or asked for it.” Depending on how you perceive a particular type of information, you will unconsciously place a personal value upon it; and hopefully, it will be one that will benefit you and your family’s well-being. 

Remember to ask yourself these questions.

  • Is  the information coming from a legitimate source that is verifiable and backed up by quality or peer-reviewed research?
  • Ask yourself who was the research funded by?  Who will benefit from this research?
  • And lastly, is there any ulterior motives for providing this information to the public?

If you get use to asking these questions, you will begin to empower yourself, your family, and your friends.
