Dr. Joel Wallach begins the show discussing absorption of nutrients. Asserting that many Americans are not absorbing their nutrients even if they are taking them. Contending those who aren't supplementing are deficient because there are no nutrients in the foods today. As it only takes three minerals to grow crops and the soils are depleted. Also due to damage to the intestines because of gluten intolerance those getting nutrients aren't absorbing them.Pearls of Wisdom

Researchers found that children are getting way too much added sugar in their diets. Finding that 99% of children ages 19 to 23 months are getting over 7 teaspoons of sugar daily. More sugar than is in a Snickers candy bar.Callers
