DIVINING BY DOWSING
Food Chain Radio Show #781 • March 9, 2013 • Sat 9AM Pacific

Michael Olson hosts Dowsers Steven Herbert and Sue Trumpfheller

What else might be devined by dowsing?
Do you believe dowsing can find water?


••••••
A few years back, I watched as a friend contracted for a water well to be drilled on his newly purchased parcel of mountain ridgetop!
•••
Other landholders on this ridgetop had not faired well in their drilling of water wells, and consequently most of the neighborhood’s wells produced mere trickles of water.

*******
The well-driller, a grizzled veteran of decades of drillings, said, “I won’t drill on this property without a dowser!”  And so the recommended dowser was contracted to “witch a well.”
••••
The dowser, an equally grizzled veteran of decades of dowsing, cruised the property behind a well-used forked willow branch, occasionally stopping here and there at the dipping of the forked willow.  Finally, he stopped dead in his tracks and said, “Right here!  You will find 30 gallons per minute at 365 feet.”
••••
And that is, within a foot or two, where the well-driller found 30 gallons per minute on the bone dry ridgetop.
••••
Having seen this dowsing, and the proving up of its call, one simply must ask…
••••
What other answers might be divined by dowsing?

Ubiquitous Soy & Precocious Puberty

Food Chain Radio Show #911 • March 2, 2013 • Sat 9AM Pacific

Could ubiquitous soy cause precocious puberty?

 

 

A challenge:  Go out into the world and find a loaf of bread that does not contain some form of soy.  Good luck!

•••

Soy is in the hamburger, in the hamburger bun, and in the milkshake.  In fact, soy is in many, if not most, of the processed foods we eat, including:

*******

  • Baked Goods:  breads, cookies, crackers, etc.

  • Breakfast cereals:  hot cereal mixes and protein bars

  • Pasta:  including U.S. National School lunch pastas

  • Beverages & Toppings:  coffee whiteners, whipped toppings, protein drinks

  • Meat, Poultry, Fish:  products processed from whole parts

  • Dairy:  imitation milks, cheeses, frozen yogurts, milk blends

•••

And of course, soy is in the baby formula.

•••

We now feed our children soy in many of their foods from the day they are born until the day they go out into the world on their own.

••••

Wait!  There is another thing to consider about our children:  They are becoming sexually mature at a much younger age.  In the 19th century, girls began menstruating at the average age of 15.  Today girls begin at the average age of 12.  Boys also are maturing years earlier, with some groups developing at the age of nine!

••••

The ubiquity of soy in our children’s foods, and the precocious puberty of our children, lead us to ask…

Could ubiquitous soy cause precocious puberty?
