“Vital but Non-Essential”
Only medical science can get away with such a statement!
The controversy lies in the lack of research in many virtually unknown, but vital, substances that are naturally occurring.
Because we can’t understand the complete dynamics of something, medical science basically deems it inconsequential.
Ultimately what happens is, since we can’t isolate a substance, it is reasoned to be non-essential.
But this label doesn’t sweep this substance under the carpet; it in fact exists whether it has a name.
And since it is found in nature and in foods we consume, it must then be essential whether or not our current technology is able to recognize it.
Only a Few Substances Considered Important for Health
So as it stands, there are relatively few substances that have been considered important for human health.
That is a shame.
Not to mention, that these substances that appear to have vital roles in our health are also subjected to all the chemicals and pollution of our environment both external and internal.
It’s sad that science has decided to not research these substances because this indeed goes against the very premise of science itself…
…the search for knowledge!
