The Lectin Detox – “Sterilization of the mentally and physically defective has long been advocated, but only recently has it seeped into the public consciousness. From the day when Plato wrote his Republic to the present, eugenicists have advanced various solutions to the problem of the defective, but sterilization seems to meet the requirements of the situation most aptly. For while it gives protection to society, yet it deprives the defective of nothing except the privilege of bringing into the world children who would only be a care to themselves and a charge to society…. Only those mentally defective and those incurably diseased should be sterilized. Many subnormal families whose intelligence is not of a high order are capable of raising useful citizens. But society should have some voice in the charges and responsibilities it will assume, not only now, but in the generations to come”. These are the words of Tommy Douglas–voted the all-time “greatest Canadian” in 2004.
Unless you are eating expensive 100% grass fed beef, in America, all meat is ultimately corn: chickens, turkeys, pigs, and even cows are forced into eating corn, as are, carnivores such as salmon. Cheap corn lectins are an easy way to “marble” animal flesh, making it taste better, but these poisonous proteins bioaccumulate in your organs upon ingestion–ultimately leading to the development of horrific “autoimmune” conditions.
Did you know that in the United States peanuts were mainly a garden crop consumed by the poor and used for animal feed until human consumption grew in the 1930s?
Got the March Madness? Consider eliminating wheat from your diet. Wheat lectin proteins are especially problematic in that they look like the snyopsin 1 proteins found in neurological tissue, so that the antibodies our body uses in defense also attack healthy nerve cells. Depending on the location of the brain cells under attack, the autoimmune effects can result in autism, seizures, tics, inappropriate emotions, repetitive behaviors, dementia, decreased short-term memory, cognitive impairment, depression, anxiety, ADHA and ADD.
Did you know that pressure cooking–while it works with many foods to destroy or drastically reduce lectin protein content–actually functions to enhance and strengthen it in others?
Did you know that injections of lentil lectin into the knee joint cavity of non-sensitized rabbits resulted in the development of arthritis which was indistinguishable morphologically from rheumatoid arthritis?
And not only is it the ugliest, but it is also the second most abundant. The primary source of lectins on Earth is plants.
The Lectin Detox – “Man needs difficulties; they are necessary for health.” –Carl Gustav Jung My name is Matthew. I almost died when I was four years old from an intense allergic reaction. My throat closed over, my skin turned blue, and I developed severe atopic dermatitis all over my body, which I suffered from for the next thirty years. Dozens of highly trained medical specialists told me that my condition was lifelong and irreversible. They told me that it was my fault that I was sick. My immune system was dysfunctional; it was insane: attacking itself. I felt deficient, broken, and sad–until I did what the doctors couldn’t do: I healed.
Interestingly, one of the world’s most abundant sources of MSM and glucosamine are crustaceans. And in many places around the world, shrimp are prepared, served, and eaten whole.
Adding MSM and glucosamine to your diet helps the detoxification process. These “sugars” act as lectin magnets, and, in effect, BLOCK the extremely sticky dietary lectin proteins–stopping them from punching holes through your gut and entering the bloodstream where they deposit themselves in and around distant organs and joints.
