Uit 'Grass, the Forgiveness of Nature' van Charles Walters (2006):

"If it seems peculiar that so few people seem to think for themselves, this is because the food they eat does not contain the nutrients they need to be able to do this."

Citaten die gebruikt worden door Stephen Harrod Buhner in zijn boek 'Vital Man' (2003):

"Everybody, sooner or later, sits down to a banquet of consequences."
- Robert Louis Stevenson

"Nature does her best to teach us. The more we overeat, the harder she makes it for us to get close to the table."
- Earl Wilson

Uit 'Syndrome X' (2000) van Jack Challem, Burt Burkson en Melissa
Diane Smith:

"With what seem to be almost limitless financial resources, pharmaceutical companies help shape much of a physician's education during medical school. After school, drug companies become the principal influence on physician thinking through seminars, visits from drug salespeople, and even social gatherings. The message doctors hear is that one drug is better than another, and all drugs are better than vitamins, minerals and herbs.

Ideally, physicians should be immune to such sales pressures, but they are only human. The pressures of running a medical practice limit the time for independently checking out research. The vision of doctors become obscured, and under intense pressure - including the pressure to do something for their patients - they usually write a prescription.

The reality is that drugs are very toxic substances. Nutrition researcher Bernard Rimland, of San Diego , describes pharmaceutical medicine as the practice of giving patients "sublethal doses of toxic substances." Rimland has pointed out that the Physicians' Desk Reference, the leading compendium of drug information for doctors, consists mostly of warnings, side effects, and contraindications. Take all the scary stuff out of the 3,000-page book, Rimland says, and you'll be left with only about 150 pages describing the benefits of drugs. You can do this calculation yourself - virtually every public library has a copy of the Physicians' Desk Reference in its collection.

One 1990s study, published in the journal Lancet, found that the number of deaths from prescription drug medication errors tripled between 1983 and 1993 in the United States, while other types of fatal poisonings and population size remained fairly constant.

Another study, published in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association), investigated the number of adverse drug reactions over a typical year. The researchers calculated that 106,000 hospitalized patients die annually because of adverse drug reactions and that 2.216,000 other hospitalized patients have serious but nonfatal drug reactions. Given these numbers, the researchers pointed out that adverse drug reactions could rank as the fourth leading cause of death, after heart disease, cancer, and stroke. (The researchers did not address the issue of adverse drug reactions and deaths among nonhospitalized patients, so the total numbers areprobably far higher.) Shocking as it may sound, legally prescribed drugs kill more people than illegal street drugs!

When this study was published in 1998, a shock wave rippled through the field of medicine. Some physicians responded by saying that there is always a benefits/risk ratio with prescription drugs, and the benefits outweigh the risks. Rimland framed the issue a little differently. He said the drug deaths were comparable to a jumbo jet crashing and killing its passengers every day of the year. If passenger jets crashed that often, the federal government would shut down the airline industry. When it comes to deaths caused by drugs, however, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) too often makes a habit of looking the other way."

"Despite the fundamental role nutrition plays in health, many physicians remain skeptical about nutritional therapies and vitamin supplements, believing there is only limited research to support their use. It turns out that a vast amount of research has been conducted on dietary therapies and vitamins, minerals, and other supplements.

These nutrition and supplement studies include human trials, epidemiological studies, animal experiments, and cell-culture studies. In weighing the totality of the research, it becomes very clear that simple, traditional diets and high levels of vitamins and minerals are almost always associated with optimal biological performance and good health. In contrast, highly refined modern diets and low levels of vitamins, and minerals are almost always associated with poor biological health and disease.

We offer a few supporting numbers, which may surprise you, to convey the volume of research. In 1998 alone, more than 1,000 studies on vitamin E and almost 700 studies on vitamin C were published in medical and other scientific journals. Most of these studies showed positive relationships between nutrition and health. In 1998, also more than 5,000 studies were published on vitamins per se and more than 3,200 studies were published on antioxidants. Since the Medline database was started in 1966, more than 147,000 studies on vitamins have been published. More than one third of these articles - 50,000 - were published between 1990 and 1998. More research - most of it positive - has been published on nutrients than on most drugs! The problem is not a dearth of vitamin research; it is the task of keeping up with all the research."

Uit 'Sea Energy Agriculture' (1976) van Maynard Murray:

"The health and physical conditioning of civilized Americans is, in the main, alarmingly poor. Moreover, it worsens each year. I make this assertion as a physician who has practiced for more than 40 years, and I make it despite the media propaganda that we are living longer and better than ever. You and I, fellow Americans, hold the dubious distinction of being among the sickest of populations in modern society.


Our medical statistics equate the increase in the average life span with good health. This kind of reasoning makes appealing news copy, but it reminds me of the statistician who drowned in a river with an average depth of only one foot. Such propaganda is deathly deceiving. This specious reasoning can lull us into a feeling of unwarranted well-being.


What our health statistics are saying is this: because insulin increases diabetic life spans for 20 years, those diabetics are in "good health". Because a cancer patient was treated with radiation, chemotherapy and surgery, he enjoyed "good health" during the extra two or three years of prolonged life such medical wizardry afforded him. Consider a patient who is paralyzed by a stroke, losing the power of speech, but kept alive in a wheelchair for three years, thereby statistically lasting longer. And how about the cerebral palsied child who would have died in infancy but was "saved" by the wonders of medicine only to die after spending 20 years in bed in constant need of nursing?

One needn't be a qualified medical doctor to see what is happening. Our great medical skill concentrates on prolonging life despite the afflictions. It is erroneous, therefore, to conclude that statistics increasing life expectancy are tantamount to good health."

Quote uit 'Sea Energy Agriculture':

"Any nation with a drug industry flourishing so well as ours certainly cannot claim
good health."

Uit 'The Bates Method for Better Eyesight without Glasses' (1940) van William Bates:

"It is as natural for the eye to see as it is for the mind to acquire knowledge, and any effort to acquire knowledge, and any effort in either case not only is useless but defeats the end in view. You may force a few facts into a child's mind by various kinds of compulsion, but you cannot make him learn anything. The facts remain, if they remain at all, as dead lumber in the brain. They contribute nothing to the vital processes of thought, and because they are not acquired naturally and are not assimilated, they destroy the natural impulse of the mind toward the acquisition of knowledge. By the time the child leaves school or college, as the case may be, he not only knows nothing but is, in the majority of cases, no longer capable of learning."

Uit 'Arnold Ehret's Mucusless Diet Healing System' (1970, oorspronkelijk uit 1922):

"Disease is an effort of the body to eliminate waste, mucus and toxemias, and this system assists nature in the most perfect and natural way. Not the disease but the body is to be healed, it must be cleansed, freed from waste and foreign matter, from mucus and toxemias accumulated since childhood. You cannot buy health in a bottle, you cannot heal your body, that is, cleanse your system in a few days. You must make 'compensation' for the wrong you have done your body all during your life."

Ook uit 'Arnold Ehret's Mucusless Diet Healing System':

"Remember: Your constitutional encumbrances throughout the entire system are the source of every disease; the greatest and most harmful source of lowered vitality, imperfect health, lack of strength and endurance and any and all imperfect conditions. All have their source in the colon, never perfectly emptied since your birth. Nobody on earth today has an ideally clean body, and therefore perfectly clean blood. What Medical Science calls Normal health is in fact a pathological condition."

Ook uit 'Arnold Ehret's Mucusless Diet Healing System':

"The Medical Profession has over 4000 names for different ailments. The particular or special name of the disease is made up according to the respective local place of elimination; or to the congested point
where the blood stream finds it difficult of passage and causes pain - such as pains in the joints, as in cases of rheumatism, for example.

For ages, this well-meaning effort and intended self-healing work of nature has been misunderstood and suppressed thru the agency of drugs, and the continuance of eating, despite the warning danger signals
of pain and loss of appetite. Notwithstanding the 'help' of the doctors - a help, in fact, injurious and dangerous to the patient's life - his vitality and especially his eliminating abilities are lowered, and nature
proceeds slowly. Under this handicap nature cannot work as efficiently, requiring more time, and the case is called 'Chronic.' The word chronic is derived from the Greek word 'chronos,' meaning time."

Ook uit 'Arnold Ehret's Mucusless Diet Healing System':

For the ordinary person, it will require from one to three years of systematically continued fastings, and natural, cleansing diet, before the body is actually cleansed of "foreign matters." You may then see how the body is constantly eliminating waste, thru the entire outside surface of the body, from every pore of the skin; the urinal canal, and the colon; from the eyes and ears; and from the nose and throat. You can see how wet as well as dry mucus (dandruff, for instance) is being expelled."

Ook uit 'Arnold Ehret's Mucusless Diet Healing System':

"Every one, no matter to what extent he may enjoy 'good health,' has a latent sickness - and Nature only awaits an opportunity to eliminate the waste stored up since childhood - and on.

Everyone knows, but fails to understand, that a severe 'shock,' such as a cold - or 'influenza' over the entire body, starts an elimination, but, unfortunately, Nature is handicapped in her attempted
housecleaning, thru the doctor's advice to continue eating, thru the use of drugs, etc., obstructing elimination, and producing acute and chronic diseases."

Ook uit 'Arnold Ehret's Mucusless Diet Healing System':

"[Medical physiology] will never find the truth and never understand what disease is as long as they have a fundamentally wrong conception of blood circulation.

As I have already explained, the fact has been overlooked, that the lungs are the motoric organs of circulation, and the circulating blood drives the heart - the same as the regulating valve in an engine.


How can it be logically proven that the heart controls the circulation if thru the circulating blood you can control the heart?


Thirty years ago a Swiss expert of physiology, although a layman, demonstrated evidently with animal experiments, that a circulation as taught by physiology (...) does not exist at all. Of course no attention was given by medicine to his demonstrations. How can a 'science' be erroneous?"

Ook uit 'Arnold Ehret's Mucussless Diet Healing System':

"The worst and by far the most unhealthy habit is the HEAVY BREAKFAST. No solid food should be eaten in the early morning at all if you desire to secure the best results. It is permissible to take the drink that you are accustomed to, but nothing else. If you find this difficult to do in the beginning you may drink again later on so that your lunch is taken in the empty stomach. This is so very important that a number of light diseases can be cured by the so called 'NO BREAKFAST PLAN' alone. (...)

It is best that no more than two meals a day be eaten, even though the quantity you eat is as much as if three or even four meals were eaten. Later, when the stomach is cleaner, a small dish of fresh fruits when in season may be eaten for breakfast if desired. If possible, the first meal, lunch, should be eaten between ten and eleven in the morning, and supper not sooner than five or six in the afternoon.


NEVER DRINK DURING A MEAL. If accustomed to tea or coffee, wait a short while after you have eaten before drinking. Soups should be avoided with meals, as the more liquid taken the more difficult for proper digestion."

Ook uit 'Arnold Ehret's Mucusless Diet Healing System':

"Don't forget that you are, parenthetically speaking, lying on Nature's operating table; the most wonderful of all operations that could be performed; and without the use of a knife!"

Uit 'Arnold Ehret's Rational Fasting' (2002, oorspronkelijk uit 1920) van Arnold Ehret:

"Meat is not a food, it is only a stimulant which ferments and decays in the stomach. The process of decay, however, does not begin in the stomach, it sets in right after the slaughtering of the animal.


Like alcohol, at first meat stimulates a feeling of strength and energy until the entire organism is clogged up by it and the breakdown becomes inevitable. All other stimulants act likewise.

The basic evil of all non-vegetarian forms of diet lies always in the overeating of meat which in turn brings on other evils, notably the craving for alcohol. Man who nourishes himself on fruit will soon lose his desire for alcoholic beverages whereas the meat eater is constantly tempted by it since meat produces thirst. Alcohol acts as a kind of antidote to meat and the big city gourmand who eats mostly meats must therefore indulge himself in wines, coffee and smoking in order to at least in some way counteract meat poisoning."

Ook uit 'Arnold Ehret's Rational Fasting':

"The so-called strength which we experience after having eaten meat is nothing but a stimulation, for there is no nourishment for man in meat. In fact, the waste products of meat, fatty plaque-shaped particles, are deposited on the walls of the blood vessels where in time they form a thick lining, calcify and thus contribute to the hardening of the arteries, in many cases resulting in high blood pressure, is the chief cause of heart attacks and diseases of senility. Tests on animals have already shown that meat-eating animals will die if fed on cooked meat alone. And rats soon die if kept on a diet of white flour."

Ook uit 'Arnold Ehret's Rational Fasting':

"Hippocrates (...) is called the 'Father of Medicine' (...) he was an exclusive dietitian. He did not have much knowledge of modern medicine, anatomy and physiology. He knew exactly what disease was, and what was going on in the human body, in case of sickness. His ideas, concept and teachings about how to heal every disease can be characteristically seen and understood by two quotations from his work on
dietetics. He says: "The more you feed the sick, the more your harm him." Also - "Your foods shall be your 'remedies,' and your 'remedies' shall be your foods."

His first statement proves clearly that he was an advocate of fasting and restrictive diet, especially in case of acute disease. His second statement (suggestion) embraces perfectly the entire problem of dietetics."

Uit 'Nutrition and Physical Degeneration' (1939) van Weston Price:

"Ernest Thompson Seton has been a critical student of the early American civilization that preceded modern European invasion and conquest. In his analysis of the relative virtues of the American Indian as
recorded in his book The Gospel of the Red Man he makes this observation:

'The civilization of the white man is a failure: it is visibly crumbling around us. It has failed at every crucial test. No one who measures things by results can question this fundamental statement.'


In his discussion of the comparable cultural qualities of the modern whites and the Indians he states:

'The culture and civilization of the White Man are essentially material; his measure of success is, "How much property have I acquired for myself?" The culture of the Red Man is fundamentally spiritual; his
measure of success is, "How much service have I rendered to my people?'"

Ook uit 'Nutrition and Phycial Degeneration' van Weston Price (1939):

"The masses must be taught that LIFE IN ITS FULLNESS IS MOTHER NATURE OBEYED."
