I just recently read through this book and wanted to highlight some key points and quotes ...

Climate emphasized- living in temperate zone not really conducive to our needs. Not enough sunlight. Slaving away to make money for housing, clothing, heating house, etc. Living indoors all winter breathing in the same air, poor ventilation, suffocating in your own toxins...

talks about case studies of people who reached a great age, including those of the bible, also more modern cases...
li chung-yun of tropical china died in 1933 at the great age of 256.
a few dozen cases of ppl living from 120-200, I suppose this is nothing special to people here but it's nice to here it over and over again like this isn't just some special person, and what one of us is capable of , anyone is...

"In the air cells of the lungs the blood receives from the air its load of oxygen, nitrogen, and other elements to sustain the b ody; and, at the same time, like a scavenger or a sewer system, the blood collects the body waste, in the form of gases and fluids, and eliminates this poisonous cargo thru the bladder as fluid and thru the lungs and skin as vapor and gases.

No body waste passess off in lumps and chunks. The waste does not pass off thru the bowels. The tissues merely disintegrate, forming liquids and gases, which leave the body as stated.

All that leaves the body trhu the bowels is the residue of the food one eats. In the case of gluttons, this amount is considerable.... body can't use.

This surplus food forms useless fat, tumors, and other growths; and this shortens life. The average person consumes three to four times as much food as the body can use.
(bold mine)
The largest item the body needs is oxygen. This gas is carried by the red blood corpuscles, each about 1/3200 of an inch in diameter. The blood contains 25 to 30 trillions of them. Their total combined surface is almost an acre-- an acre approximately 210 feet square.

During moderate activity, all the blood in the body passes thru the lungs more than 100 times an hour.

One reason why cool air is so bracing is because it is more condensed and contains more oxygen. There is more (25%) oxygen in zero air than in 100 above zero.

(pg 45) 6. This process of Blood Purification, by which the blood exchanges its poisonous gases for the air gases in the lungs, occurs approximately 2,880 times every 24 hours, in which time approximately 125 barrels of blood are purified daily in the lungs.

Pg 49- Here again Carrel missed a vital point. Body cells do not die, and he himself declared that they are immortal. The cells simply sink below the life-level of vibration because their magnetic poles become corroded by the acids that are not carried off and eliminated by a polluted bloodstream.

numes de cugna of India died at the age of 370 in 1566. Rats and worms when forced to fast live 70-2000% longer than normally fed animals.

pg 69- Back to Nature

In his "back to Nature" magazine in 1936, Dr St. Louis Estes, frequently called the "Raw Food King," said so much against salt -- "Salt-- The Death Dealer," that his article was reprinted in the May 1937 issue of "how to live" magazine.

In the article was quoted a letter fro ma wise naturpath, giving his observations of salt eating. He had a patient suffering from Bright's Disease; and upon examination, he found there was a small excretion of salt.

As so little salt was being eliminated , it occurred to him that the salt was accumulating in the body, and water accumulated to lessen the irritation of the salt.

It was not the case of salt seizing and holding the water, as stated by Ratcliff. It was the body's demand for water to lessen the irritating effects of the salt. It was the tissues of the body holding the salt.

The patient was in the dropsical condition so typical of this disorder in advanced stages so he placed the patient on a salt-free diet. In three days the dropsy disappeared.

To be sure of his ground, he tried this three times with the same result. Each time the patient was given salt, the dropsy returned; and each time the salt was withheld, the dropsy disappeared.

Dr. G. J. Drew, another "raw food king" of the 1930s, wrote:
"Salt is so stable that it is not dissolved and utilized by the body. It is ingested as salt and excreted as salt."

"As the salt is absorbed by the body cells, they contract from the irritation and discharge their precious albumen and other vital elements. This causes hardened arteries, tissues, shriveled blood corpuscles, arthritis, and produces the state called old age."(unfired foods. )

Hal Beiler, M.D., said: "In the days of our forefathers, salt solution was used as an embalming fluid. The acient Egyptians used salt oils and spices in their mummy wrappings.

"Today we mummify the living with salad dressings made of salt, oils, and spices, and see them walking the streets. Their dry skin, shrunken bodies, and enervation bespeak of hardened blood vessels, livers, kidneys, and muscles.

"I often wonder why it is necessary to embalm such bodies after death. THey are already pickled to the gills." (Philosophy of health)

Most primitives people in their natural state use no salt. Bartholemew found Chinese of the interior ate no salt. Dr. Benjamin Rush found the AMerican Indians never ate salt when discovered by the white man.

Stomach ulcers and some cases of blindness are due to salt. Glaucoma is one of the most prevalent and serious eye ailments, causing about one in eight cases of blindness.

In the normal eye a thick fluid flows into and out of the eye at a constant rate. In glaucoma, exit channels for the fluid become blocked by a waterlogged state of the body. Internal pressures rise. Vision becomes distorted; a rainbow halo appears around lights. If not relieved, the pressure continues to rise, eventually producing much pain. In time the optic nerve terminals are destroyed and blindness follows, due to salt eating.

Mr. A , age 39, paralyzed from the waist down, limbs emaciated, was given up to die by the best doctors, He used salt freeely. It was impossible to move the muscles of his limbs. A wise naturopath had all salt removed from his foods, and at the end of four days he could move the muscles of his toes.

Mrs. B, age 50, was unconscious for three days from uremic poisoning, was told by three physicians that she would die of Bright's Disease. A wise naturopath had all salt removed from her food, and she recovered health.

Thousands of cases could be cited where the sick recovered health by simply living on a salt-free diet.

Sodium Chloride(salt) conceals itself in the cells and tissues like a thief in the night, and irritation begins that calls for water.

This eventually produces hypertension of the nerves, deterioration and hardening of blood capillaries, blood vessels, high-blood pressure, all forms of growths, including cancer and tumor, arthritis, psoriasis, neuritis, valvular leakage of heart, defective hearing and eyesight, and is in fact the root of many ailments.

Ratcliff's 200,000 a year who drown in their own body fluids can thank their salt-eating habit for that.

The basic cause of not congestive heart failure, as claimed by Ratcliff.
It is the result of salt eating.

Frederick hoeizel, after yars of experimentation, declared that the cause of mental and physical deficient cases is due mainly to a retention of salt and water in the body."

He relates in his book, Devotion to Nutrition, that his experiments showed that salt eating, with the retention in the body of salt and water, impairs the body's functions.

Many people suffer from "hidden edema," due to salt. The most common symptom of this condition is a swelling of the ankles. Hoeizel showed that the cause is salt eating. He also showed that "salt retention, hypersensitivity of the skin, thickened skin folds, and fat deposits are interrelated."

(pg 76( Millikan, a truly great scientist, in his book, SCience of the New Civilization, said, "Electrons are the building blocks of the Universe," and the earth, vegetation, and all animal bodies are composed of these " spiritual blocks."

An atom is a miniature solar system with "planets" (electrons) circulating within the infinitesimal system of the atom, around a common center of attraction, at a speed of from 10,000 to 90,000 miles a second.
It would require 340,00 barrels of powder to give a bullet the speed with which some electrons dart in and out of their groups.

"We as individuals have no existence in reality other than as waves, multitudinous and complicated centers in the ether . . . we are analegous, in a sense, to the sound that issues from a piano when a cord is struck."



(pg 82(

There can be no doubt that we are discussing something very fundamental to business when we talk about education... If only to maintain and expand its markets, the business world has at least as big a stake as anyone in the achievement of an educated, productive, and tolerant society... THere is a definite correlation between education and the consumption of commodities. Education has done more to create markets for business than any other force in America." - jan 12, 1951, Frank w Abrams, chairman of the board, standard oil co of new jersey before the national citizens commission for public schools.

pg 83

The wealth of the world is pitted against him. So he has no place to look for help. He must depend on his own efforts, powers and resources. He must make himself a social outcast if he would rise above the social pattern and thus bring down upon his head the infamy, ridiculous, opprobrium, sarcasm and hatred of the world.

- I didn't mean to end on a 'sad' note. Anyways this is what I underlined or starred from this book that really stuck out to me. So hopefully those of you who can't get this to read can at least enjoy some of the more interesting bits. I would rate this book a 7/10. I don't know if I would buy it again but I wouldn't blame anyone who did. If you enjoyed this little review please post here and let me know. I had to sit in front of comp and hurt my eyes for like 30-40 minutes to type this up- I was hoping it would go by faster... But if even a few people seem like they got a lot out of this I will consider other reviews in the future for sure. I really appreciate all of the content that has been loaded up here in the past <3 <3 <3 In fact I first heard of hotema on here and very grateful I did!
