Nutrition is not alternative medicine, it is the foundation of life and the driving force of health." ... nutrition begins in the kitchen - 70 Going On 100?
Our last 6 generations created our modern world; but, today’s scientists admit that we are fundamentally ignorant of the ways the thousands of chemicals (est. over 100,000 man made chemicals in use), we are exposed to interact once inside our tissues or cells. As humans we have multiple toxins constantly combining in our bodies, altering and shifting our inner environments in ways that new environmental doctors are just starting to ﬁgure out.
Our own FDA (1) (Some are calling it
Fraud and Death Administration)
which is supposed to protect its citizens, is influenced by Big-Pharma and The Chemical Industry, something
Rockefeller (1,2) started in the 19th century.
In the early 20th century the U. S. Supreme Court found
John D. Rockefeller guilty of corruption, illegal business practices and racketeering.
Natural foods are Non-Patentable that is the problem. Industry could not make money from natural foods. Ex. Heart disease was practically unknown prior to WWI.

Nutrition was forgotten! Ref: ... this site Cholesterol - Fats and the Centenarian Diet
John Harvey Kellogg was part of the Vegetarian Movement of the 19th century and claimed that the human diet was fruits, nuts, grains, tender shoots, and succulent roots.
After acquiring a medical degree, Kellogg took charge of the Western Health Institute and subsequently changed its name to the Sanatarium. (5) Nutritional
Sanatariums were eventually shut down by the work of
Rockefeller and the FDA, in protecting the Chemical Industry.

100 years ago - Vitamins were discovered. (Note 1) These newly discovered molecules were non-patentable, thus the elimination of this unwanted competition from natural micronutrients therefore became a question of life and death for the pharmaceutical business. Donations from the Rockefeller Foundation went only to medical schools and hospitals. These institutions had become missionaries of a new breed of companies: the manufacturers of patented, synthetic drugs. This same practice went on in Europe with I.G. Farben cartel - BASF, Bayer, et al. (6,7)
Can you Believe ... our generation, the Greatest Generation, Baby Boomers, and Generation X, drove around in cars and traffic breathing exhaust from Leaded Gasoline? This heavy metal poisoned humans and the environment and we are now eating it particularly in our Dark Chocolate. Tea's from China are contaminated with Toxic Heavy Metals. Our generation pushed the Modern Environmental Movement. We are still breathing and eating products from Coal Fired Power Generation.
Modern nutrition policy is based on distortion of facts and bad science. Ex. Saturated Fats and Cholesterol - Debunked. The FDA Says You Have No Right to Real Food Unless They Give You Permission First and the FDA is gaining many enemies as they have failed to protect the public. Organizations like the Weston A. Price Foundation and the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund are working toward true freedom of choice for American consumers,

Modern Society created a nutritional disease; therefore, we need a nutritional solution. But, doctors are not trained in nutrition, medicine as we know it is in trouble, can we be better doctors than the AMA provides. We certainly can acquire the knowledge to ask better questions.

Our biggest challenge is ourselves and our predilection to eating for flavor, palatability, and desires, neglecting what our bodies are telling us and really need.
We are addicted to sugars, white flour, processed foods, smoking and drugs, and overcoming those addictions is the challenge. In the

Interestingly: In the 1930s, food scientists realized that refined grains were not providing enough nutrients. Consumers, particularly children, were developing symptoms of malnutrition.
Thus, grain enrichment and fortification became standard. (14,15,16) References to

The discovery of the vitamins was a major scientific achievement in our understanding of health and disease. In 1912, Casimir Funk originally coined the term “vitamines” from the Latin vitals (vitally important) and
amines (organic derivatives of ammonia). The major period of discovery began in the early nineteenth century and ended at the mid-twentieth century. (20) The puzzle of each vitamin was solved
through the work and contributions of epidemiologists, physicians, physiologists, and chemists. We all know the discover of the cure to
Scurvy, and Vitamin C, also, beriber (B1), (21) rickets, pellagra (B3), and xerophthalmia as specific vitamin deficiencies. Many Nobel Prizes came out of the research on vitamins, there discovery, isolation, synthesis and structure. (22)
