It was observed centuries ago that sailors deprived of fresh fruit and vegetables on long voyages became ill with scurvy. Now of course not many of us today have to live on salt-preserved meat and dry, weevil infested biscuits, and no doubt our modern Western diets are usually sufficient to protect us against disease. But for how many of us do they provide truly optimal health?

Those unfortunate sailors of old were quickly restored to health when given foods rich in Vitamin C, and we’re all well aware today of the crucial importance of including the full range of vitamins in our diets.

But what’s less often appreciated is that the vital functions of these vitamins are inextricably bound up with those of the equally vital minerals we require. Senate Document 264 (74th US Congress, Second Session 1936) was unequivocal on the point: “…..vitamins control the body's appropriation of minerals, and in the absence of minerals they have no function to perform. Lacking vitamins, the system can make some use of minerals, but lacking minerals, vitamins are useless.”

In fact human beings require around 60 different minerals for optimal health, and although it’s true that many of these are present in our bodies only in minute amounts, it doesn’t follow that these trace minerals are unimportant.

To give just one example – the ageing process within the body is to a great extent driven by the action of so-called free radicals. These are the unwanted but entirely natural by-products of normal metabolic processes in cells, but if left unchecked they will damage and even eventually destroy those same cells. Chief amongst the body’s weapons against the free radicals are the potent anti-oxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione, and the manufacture of these enzymes within the body is highly dependent on the working together of an abundant supply of vitamins B and C with trace minerals manganese, copper and zinc.

But Senate Document 264 noted that 99% of Americans were deficient in necessary minerals and in the light of the continued intensification of farming methods it seems highly unlikely that the situation will have improved in the intervening years. Indeed, the 1992 Earth Summit reported that mineral concentrations in US farm soils were 85% lower than those of a hundred years ago.

The figures for other wealthy Western nations are almost as alarming, and the problem doesn’t just lie in the soil. The modern prevalence of highly refined grains, and the treatment of fruits and vegetables with preservatives, dyes, pesticides and even radiation is a proven disaster for vitamin and mineral retention in our food, as well as a significant toxic assault with which the human organism simply wasn’t designed to cope.

Of course this crisis in the quality of our food should in no way prevent us from seeking to eat as healthily as possible, but as Senate Document 264 noted; we are no longer likely to be able to obtain all the nutrients we need from our food alone. In the case of minerals in particular, said the report, our stomachs are simply not big enough to accommodate all the fruits and vegetables we would need to eat, so depleted of nutrients have our foods become.

Many physicians nevertheless insist that a balanced and varied diet including all the main food groups should generally provide adequate nourishment. And in a sense of course they’re right. In an ideal world if everybody ate three well balanced meals a day, including an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables, there might indeed be no need for supplementation.

But even orthodox medical opinion will often concede the validity of supplementation for those suffering from specific conditions - the use of iron in the treatment of anaemia is perhaps the best known example. So if supplements can be used as treatments for the ill, might they not also be used as a means of improving the health of those who while displaying no clinical symptoms are in sub-optimal health.

This is not to say that supplementation can offer any guarantee of health. But just as most of us are happy to pay relatively small sums for insurance against an extremely unlikely but potentially catastrophic loss, it’s a question of weighing the odds and balancing the risks.

People tend to be influenced more by their personal experience than any amount of scientific research and the millions who’ve taken the view that it’s worth paying a little each day for this very inexpensive form of health insurance have made supplements a multi-billion dollar industry.

And it’s never been simpler or more convenient to take a comprehensive mineral supplement. The days of the foul tasting, tough to swallow and absorb “horse pills” are rapidly coming to an end when as little as a fluid ounce of a modern liquid supplement may provide all your requirements and more.

What do you know about sleep?
Posted March 26, 2008 by globdom
Popular misconceptions (Source: National Sleep Foundation)
A good deal of what we have heard about sleep and health is the result of myth or misinformation. Some of the prevailing ideas regarding sleep may even be dangerous. Here are some common beliefs about sleep, and the truth behind the stories.

Snoring may be an annoyance but it is harmless.
This may be true for most people, but sometimes snoring is a symptom of a disorder known as sleep apnea. This condition interrupts breathing during sleep. Sufferers of sleep apnea frequently snore, and in severe cases awaken several times during the night out of breath. Sleep apnea may have serious consequences. Snoring may also be associated with obesity, which can obstruct the airway.
Chronic snorers, especially those whose snoring is interrupted, should be examined by their physician to ensure that their nighttime noise is not caused by a potentially life-threatening problem

A full night’s sleep is recommended but you can get by on less.
Sleeping less than the amount you need not only makes you tired, it can be harmful to your health. Obesity, high blood pressure, depression, lowered productivity and mental alertness, even safety hazards are the consequences of too little sleep.

If you get sleepy while driving, you can help stay awake by turning up the radio or opening the window.
These tactics can fool you; they may provide a momentary boost to alertness but a tired body soon stops noticing these stimuli, and you’re nodding off again. A more appropriate response to sleepiness while driving is to pull off the road in a protected area and take a nap, for at least 15 minutes. Even that is only a temporary measure. The only safe means of preventing the danger of drowsy driving is prevention: plenty of sleep the night before.

Adolescents are grown up enough to sleep the same number of hours that adults do.
The teen who gets sleepy in class is not showing signs of laziness or inattention. Sleep experts report that adolescents require more sleep than the average adult — at least 8-1/2 to 9-1/2 hours every night, compared to 7 to 9 hours for a typical 30-year-old. One problem is that teenagers’ biological clocks are close to the adult rhythm, keeping them awake later in the evening and sleeping later in the morning hours. Because many schools begin classes in the early morning, these students may be chronically deficient in the sleep they need.

You don’t have insomnia if you don’t have trouble falling asleep.
Difficulty falling asleep is but one of four symptoms associated with insomnia. The others include waking up too early and not being able to fall back asleep, frequent awakenings, and waking up feeling unrefreshed. Any of these types of insomnia may be a symptom of a sleep disorder or of another medical problem. Health problems such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and depression are genetic or lifestyle issues, not related to sleep.
To the contrary, scientific studies have found a link between sleep and many health problems. For example, insufficient sleep affects the production of growth hormones related to weight maintenance. Cardiovascular problems, the potential for developing diabetes, and other disease states appear to be connected to poor sleep.

When you get older, you need less sleep.
It is the sleep pattern that seems to change as we get older, not the amount of sleep we need. Older people may wake more frequently through the night, but they tend to take more daytime naps.

Sleep is the time for your brain to rest.
In fact a great deal of mental activity takes place during certain stages of sleep. There are multiple stages in each 90-minute sleep cycle. Even in the deepest part of each cycle, the brain is processing information or dreaming. Scientists are still not sure why we dream, but it is known that the periods of brain activity serve a vital restorative function.

If you wake up in the middle of the night, try to count sheep or use some other way to get back to sleep.
If you’ve ever awakened and told yourself you have to get back to sleep, you know how impossible this is. If you’re waiting to fall asleep and it doesn’t happen after about 15 minutes, you may want to get out of bed and find something relaxing to do. This may help you feel sleepy again, and then you can go back to bed.

The dangers of poor sleep in numbers:

• Average amount that Americans sleep per night on weekdays: 6.9 hours
• Average amount that Americans sleep per night on weekends: 7.5 hours

• Number of people in the United States affected by a sleep problem: 70 million
• Number for whom the problem is chronic and/or frequent: 40 million

• Financial losses in the US due to sleep deprivation/disorders: $100 billion per year
• Direct healthcare costs of insomnia, including treatment: $14 billion per year
• Indirect costs (missed work, property damage, etc.): $28 billion per year

• Proportion of Americans who report sleep problems: approximately 70%
• Proportion of children who report frequent sleep problems: 69%
• Proportion of older adults who report frequent sleep problems: 67%

• Number of automobile accidents caused by drowsy drivers: 100,000 per year
• Number of fatalities and injuries in these accidents: 72,500 per year
• Proportion of Americans who admit to have driven while drowsy: 51%
• Proportion who admit to have dozed off while driving: 17%
