Question - Dr. Wallach,
you stated that people started developing tin deficiencies when the canners
began to use aluminum cans rather than tin. This makes no sense. The tin
in the tin cans would be metallic, rock based tin and would be totally unusable.
Could you clarify this point?
Dr. Wallach When you add contents like grapefruit
and V-8 and tomato juice and pineapple juice, things which are a little
bit acidic, they will actually leach out a minute percentage of that metallic
mineral in the can, into the juices.
Question - In
Earth Plus, the ingredients list shows 600mg of calcium 150mg
of magnesium. This is exactly the wrong ratio of calcium to magnesium,
from what I've read. Comment?
Dr. Wallach: I'll
say two things on that. Some people have the idea that calcium goes to some
parts of the body and turns solid. It just doesn't work that way. But if
you're taking metallic minerals, as opposed to colloidal, that's where you
need to be concerned about the calcium / magnesium ratio. The calcium and
magnesium on that list are part of the vitamin multiple pre-mix added to
Majestic Earth Plus, and they are Chelated. Second, you have all colloidal
Majestic Earth Minerals calcium and magnesium in Majestic Earth Plus. The
Calcium / magnesium ratio is not a problem.
Question - You stated that
minerals are neither created or destroyed. Not true. Elements do transmute
and form different elements. A French scientist (Professor C. Louis Kervran:
Member of the New York Academy of Science and Director of Conferences of
the Paris University) has written a book called "Biological Transmutations",
published by the Happiness Press, Magali, Ca. Chris Bird wrote a chapter
about Professor Kervran in the book "The Secret Life of Plants".
He states that at the subatomic
level, unknown changes, etc. are produced. Light weight elements do transmute.
In chapter 6 he discusses how calcium is derived from silicone. On page
95 he discusses how enzymes in the human body allow iron to change into
Dr. Wallach: Yes,
minerals do transmute from higher periodic chart numbers to lower. For instance,
uranium over thousands of years will eventually turn into lead .But you
can't go the other direction. You can't take lead and go make gold, which
has been tried.
The work of Professor Kervran
involved chickens laying soft eggs. Then they'd go out in the barnyard and
eat sand in the barnyard and suddenly their eggs would have calcium in the
shells again. So he felt that the birds were transmuting the silica into
calcium. Not true. It doesn't work that way.
The birds were not only
eating sand. There was also little bits of calcium carbonate in there from
coral and oysters. And it doesn't take much for it to get in the eggshells.
No living system...no plants
or animals...can make minerals or transmute minerals. In the laboratory,
in industry, you can make diamonds and rubies. So the definition which we
had when I was in grade school - "minerals can be neither created or destroyed"
- isn't quite accurate. Now you have to say: "Minerals can neither be created
nor destroyed by living systems". In a laboratory you can take raw materials
and create minerals.
Interestingly, things like precious jewels actually
aren't a pure mineral. They're usually aluminum - based and have contaminants
in them which give them their color.
I've written a book on the subject titled "Rare
Earths: Forbidden Cures" It includes all of this research.
I know Chris Bird from "The Secret Life of Plants". He's a great writer
and a very interesting fellow.
Question - I take spirulina from the upper part of Klamath
lake. It's supposed to be the finest quality Blue-Green algae in the world.
I feel noticeable better when I take it. Are you telling me that product
Dr. Wallach: It's
a great source of anti-oxidants, beta carotene, Chlorophyll, a small amount
of Vitamin E. Those are all the positive things about it. But when you look
at the research that the military did in the 30's and 40's, trying to use
Blue-Green algae as a food supplement for the troops in their breads and
biscuits, they realized that when you put people through great physical
and/or emotional stresses, you needed the best nutrition possible. And they
wanted to get as much as possible into compact GI rations. So they tried
it. But concluded that to get the minimum daily amount, you'd need to take
two pounds per day of pure Blue-Green algae. That would give you everything
They tested and tested,
but they could not get anyone above 50 grams a day without getting major
digestive upsets: Gas, stomach cramping, bowel pain, diarrhea. So they dropped
the project, and concluded that as a sole supplement it doesn't work. Many
articles were written in the 30's and 40's on that subject. If you are getting
benefit from it take it, but please don't expect to get total supplementation
Question - When will these Majestic Earth deposits run
Dr Wallach: The
Majestic Earth deposit is projected to last 500 years if we use it daily
1000 times more than we're now using it annually. Even so, in 1994, I began
searching for other deposits of this material. It's a long tough hunt, because
right now this location in Southern Utah is the only known area on earth
where harvestable levels of this material are found. You need very low rainfall,
and the forests must be entombed by a glacier or volcano. To get those factors
together in one place...well you're just not going to encounter it very
Question - What is the consistency
of humic Shale? If this is fossilized plant life, then how can Majestic
Earth be such small particle size as you claim?
Dr. Wallach: Humic shale is like the floor of a forest, very compacted
dry leaves and sticks. The consistency is like dried saltine crackers or
very dry oak leaves. Put them into your hands and rub them together, and
it all crumbles into a real fine dust..
It's not rock. It's not fossilized. To be fossilized you need a lot of water
in the area. Then, as the water soaks the plants, minerals from the water
are absorbed into the plant cells, fossilizing the plant. No Water, no fossils.
But the area where the Majestic Earth comes from - where the humic shale
is - had less than 2" of rainfall a year. So there was not enough rain to
fossilize or petrify. Look up the word "shale" in the dictionary; and you'll
find it's just a layered, compacted deposit of plant life which never fossilized
And remember, the particle size in Majestic Earth is not the original material.
We grind this dried plant material into a fine flour and soak it in water,
leaching out the fine- particle colloidal minerals. So it's a two step process.
Question - If I want to change the calcium / magnesium
ratio, what is the most digestible / product to supplement with?
Dr Wallach: If you
want to add magnesium, Youngevityhas a product in the Chelated
form - Ultimate Calcium - which has an excellent magnesium source.
It includes calcium, magnesium, potassium, and boron. It's as good as any
on the market, and better than most...probably because of the added boron.
That's the "Plus" part.
The boron is kind of interesting. It doesn't affect
minerals directly, but it does help the adrenal glands and the liver produce
hormones and perform their functions better, including the regulation of
minerals better. There's plenty of colloidal boron in Majestic Earth Minerals
and Majestic Earth Plus, which is one reason why they're so effective.
Question - You told the
chicken cartilage story the other night. My doctor says I have bone rubbing
bone in my shoulder. Does Youngevityhave any product to supply
the substance the cartilage gives you?
Dr. Wallach: Joint
replacement operations are very big with the medical doctors these days,
especially hip replacements. So you're looking at big bucks. And they're
100% UNNECESSARY, since the cause is damaged or destroyed joint cartilage,
and can be grown back.
Yes, Youngevityhas two products which do
that. Formula Plus includes 50mg of chondroitin sulfate. That's a
sulfur-bearing series of amino acids or protein that you find in cartilage
and tendons. And you also find the amino acids which make up chondroition
sulfate in the
This is why people with arthritis react so quickly
to the chondroitin sulfate.
And if you want a really
cheap solution to cartilage trouble, go to the drug store and buy some Knox
gelatin. Take a couple teaspoons a day, and it'll replenish your body's
Ultimate Gluco-gel is
the answer for nutritional support for arthritis, in combination with the
Pig Pack Formula.
