Animal Feed Has More Nutrition Than FDA Approved Nutrition For Humans!
Since choline is a critical component of many fat-containing compounds in the cell membrane (also see Vitamin B8 (Inositol), and since the cell membrane is almost entirely made of fats, the flexibility, and integrity of the membrane is inextricably linked to adequate choline supplies.
Phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin are two examples of membrane structures that require choline.
These fat-like molecules account for an unusually high percentage of the total solids in the brain. Therefore, choline is particularly important for the health of the brain and has significant potential for therapeutic use in brain disorders.
Choline is an important vitamin that is often “missing in action” in most multi-vitamin and some B-complex formulas.
Yet this vital nutrient is added to animal feed to ensure their good health.
In addition to being important for brain health, choline is an important component for healthy liver function and is closely tied to the nervous system. Did you know that without choline, your heart would stop beating?
Cure For Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease?
In 1989 the Center for Disease Control began documenting cases in which patients receiving Parenteral Nutrition (PN) (intravenous nutrition) developed lactic acidosis. This condition was completely resolved with thiamine therapy; yet despite the documented results, the RDI of thiamine as it relates to PN was barely changed.
Well here we go again, but this time with Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN).
According to The Merck Manual (a respected medical manual for diagnosis and therapy):
“Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) supplies all daily nutritional requirements.”
“Supplies all daily nutritional requirements?” Really?
Professor Steven Zeisel of the Department of Nutrition at the University of North Carolina’s School of Public Health in Chapel Hill and well-known editor-in-chief of the esteemed Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry made the connection between choline and the development of accumulated fat in the liver (non-alcoholic fatty liver).
He found that because choline is not part of the TPN mixture, patients developed fat accumulation in the liver and, ultimately, the death of liver cells!
Professor Zeisel also reported that there have been three papers in the Journal of Gastroenterology reporting that when patients with excessive fat accumulation in their liver were given a choline supplement with the TPN, the fat in the liver disappeared!
So, based on this information you would think that choline has been added to TPN mixtures, right? Unfortunately, the answer is no, it hasn’t.
Not only that, another vital nutrient is missing from the TPN list of daily nutritional requirements-Vitamin B12! Without question, B12 is one of the most deficient vitamins in our country today!
The issue of nutritional deficiencies goes beyond the scope of TPN and PN.
If the FDA doesn’t endorse adding vital nutrients such as thiamine, choline and vitamin B12 to their approved mixtures of so-called “total nutrition,” even after their own research proves the prevention and/or cure of dangerous health conditions with those nutrients, then why should we believe that their “healthy diet” recommendations are ideal for optimal health?
Can we trust modern medical dogma and the FDA?
Healthy = No Profits
It’s as simple as that.
