Orthomolecular nutrition.( Linus Pauling )
Optimum nutrition is the medicine of the future.
**The optimum nutritional micro-environment of every cell in the body is vital to achieve or restore optimal health; deficiencies in this environment cause the body to be more susceptible to diseases and degeneration. To complicate matter even more: Ill health can be brought about by an imbalance of nutrients, both producing either an excess or deficiency which in turn affects body functioning. The previous mechanistic view of food merely as fuel thus falls short. Foods and their diverse components are capable of affecting the control of metabolism directly via hormones and genes, to the effect that different foods can for example affect energy expenditure to varying degrees, also when energy intake is constant.
Food is and was medicine after all, low quality type food resulting in the
emergency of Nutrition-related health complications such as coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, various cancers, diabetes mellitus, gallstones, dental caries (cavities), gastrointestinal disorders, various bone and joint diseases and obesity.
Thyroxine and Tri-iodothyronine.
T4 and T3 have been found as the main organically bound iodine compounds in several brown seaweeds, notably Laminaria sp. and Sargassum sp. Up to 10% of Lamiarian iodine may be in MIT, DIT, T3, or T4.
Even more in the less commonly available Sargassum ( Sargassum it is a rapidly expanding and invasive seaweed now found of all temperate coasts)(Kazutosi 2002).
Development/Prevention of Chronic food, lifestyle- and obesity-related diseases.
There is little doubt that the change in the way we produce (grow) food, the use of herbicide and pesticide, application of modern food processing technologies including storage has contributed to this development. Fresh, whole foods provide higher amounts and a more favourable balance of essential and vital nutrients per unit of energy, resulting in better management of cell growth, maintenance, and cell division as well as of appetite and energy balance.
But processed foods are often cheaper, more convenient (in purchasing, storage, and preparation), and more available, the consumption of nutritionally inferior foods has been increasing. The food processing industry is a major part of the modern economy, and very influential in political decisions (e.g. nutritional recommendations, agricultural subsidising). That in fact in any known profit-driven economy, health considerations are hardly a priority; effective production of cheap foods with a long shelf-life is more important.
