Magnesium and zinc levels associated with 50% decline in cancer mortality
By Bill Sardi

There is a growing body of evidence that magnesium and zinc play important roles in countering the deleterious effects of loose copper in the body. Copper is required for growth and expansion of tumors as well as the formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) that facilitate the spread (metastasis) of cancer. [Journal Trace Elements Medical Biology 18: 1-8, 2004]

The latest study, conducted by researchers at the Pasteur Institute in France, among 4035 men age 30-60 years over a period of 18 years, found males with the highest blood serum concentration of magnesium and zinc experienced up to a 50% reduction in cancer mortality, while high copper levels combined with low zinc and magnesium produced elevated cancer death rates. [Epidemiology 17: 308014, 2006]

Remarkably, 10% of the U.S. population consumes less than half the recommended dietary allowance for zinc and are at increased risk for zinc deficiency. [Journal Nutritional Biochemistry 15: 572-78, 2004]

Most Americans are also deficient in magnesium.

March 23rd 2004. It’s been three years since I was diagnosed with mitral valve prolaspse. I remember the date because it’s my father’s birthday.

I’m on vacation from work next week and I plan to do some things around the house that haven’t been dealt with since the move in November. I also plan to dig up my health notes and go through them to find the summary papers from the iridologist. I never googled the things that she wanted me to take and I had always planned to but just never had the time. I remember they were expensive aromatherapy oils and that was one of the reasons I didn’t continue with her. If I can find out what they are and what they can do, maybe I can find some missing clues…

Today for some reason I had early afternoon magnesium loss. Around two o’clock my hands were cold and I thought it was weird because I just had my lunch not so long ago. I had a egg salad sandwich. I took one of my evening magnesium and was better. By four o’clock my hands went cold again and I took another magnesium. Not sure what is causing the magnesium loss as the only thing I’ve changed recently is the potassium and chromium. So I skip my evening vitamins and only take one magnesium, the enzymes and the adrenal complex.

So this is clearly not working. Tomorrow I’m going to lower the zinc intake and only take magnesium and the enzymes with a multivitamin. Forget the other stuff… for now…

I did a quick google search about digestive enzymes. Looking at my supplement, I notice that something called papain is in the highest concentration so here’s what I found:

The Natural Protein Digestant

Papain is naturally occurring enzyme, obtained from latex of fruit of PAPAYA (Carica papaya Latex). The enzyme Papain is obtained by drying papaya latex by suitable method viz; sun drying, tray drying, spray drying etc. spray drying gives a fine powder, which dissolves easily in water to provide a solution of high proteolytic activity.

The crude Papain obtained from the crude latex is extracted, filtered, concentrated and finally spray dried into a very fine & soluble powder. All processing of Papain is carried out in aseptic conditions to suit for the pharmaceutical applications.

Papain is a mixture of proteolytic enzymes derived from the juice of the unripe fruit of the tropical plant Caroica papaya, commonly known as papaya. Papain hydrolyzes proteins to form oligopeptides and amino acids. Papain also contains the proteolytic enzyme chymopapain which differs from papain in electrophoretic mobility, solubility and substrate specificity. The molecular weight of chymopapain is approximately 27,000 daltons. Papain is used as a digestive aid. It is also used as a meat tenderizer. Papain has putative anti-inflammatory activity. The activity of papain is expressed in papain units or PU. The assay of papain activity is based on the hydrolysis of casein.

Pancreatin enzymes have two important functions in the body: digestion of foods and routine cancer eradication. Pancreatin is a mix of many different enzymes, and those involved in the digestion of proteins are also used to help eliminate cancers that occur. Cancer is often a disease of protein metabolism because the pancreatin enzyme cancer defense mechanism can be overwhelmed by consuming protein rich foods at inappropriate times or in excessive amounts. The body needs a time span each day approaching twelve hours or more without protein consumption for its pancreatin cancer defense mechanism to work optimally.

Pancreatin enzymes can be made ineffective by contact with acids or alcohols. A diet comprised mostly of refined foods and meats may result in an acidic body chemistry that depletes these enzymes. Cancer, once established, ensures its survival by continuously generating acid as it inefficiently metabolizes food. Consuming alcoholic beverages can also interfere with the defense mechanism. Many popular cosmetics that contain acids or alcohols are a special concern for skin cancer. Mercury leakage from amalgam tooth fillings is also debilitating to many enzyme functions.

The dangers of messing with mineral ratios. This article basically sums up the past year in a nutshell. It’s scary but what other choice have I been given? Most of the doctors don’t believe in the magnesium deficiency not to mention the zinc and copper…

Each mineral in the body has an effect on all the other minerals. No mineral works alone. There is no way of telling what you are doing without the intelligent use of hair tests and kinesiologic testing. Feeling better is not really a criteria that a supplement is “working.” It is possible to make a person temporarily feel better by making their condition worse. For instance, lets take a fast oxidizer who has a high level of sodium and potassium; this means his adrenals are overactive or overstressed. This person is already overstimulating himself to keep himself going.

Now if he takes supplements like vitamin E and vitamin C, and a high B-complex stress vitamin, he might feel better. Yet he is really making his pattern worse. What happens is that the vitamin C, E, and B-complex raise the sodium and potassium even more. It is a drug-like effect, like taking a cup of coffee. The person notices a pick-up. What he will probably not be aware of is that by raising the sodium and potassium he has pushed himself closer to a heart attack. He will also not be aware that his calcium and magnesium levels are being lowered at the same time. If he keeps doing this, long enough, the calcium and magnesium levels–and the ratios between them–can move into a cancer resonance range.

In fact, if you change or rearrange a mineral pattern by 10-25%–in any direction–you can probably get relief from symptoms. You get short-term benefit by helping some parts of the mineral chart at the expense of others. Unfortunately, the damage you are doing does not show until later. It takes time to develop. So you never realize the harm you have done to yourself.

Believe it or not, many times you have to make a person temporarily feel worse to get him better. Let’s take the example of the fast oxidizer we were using before. The right way to help this person would be to lower his sodium and potassium levels. this would reduce the stress on his adrenal glands. It would slow down the person’s metabolism and prevent him from burning out his mineral reserves and collapsing. You have to slow this kind of person down to save his life. But when you do it, he feels worse. He doesn’t want to slow down. He wants to keep driving himself. A person like this won’t voluntarily go into a healthfood store and buy supplements that will slow him down. No one would ever take supplements that would make him feel worse. If a person took something that made him feel worse, he would stop, and if it made him feel better, he would keep taking it.

Now you can see some of the problems of randomly taking supplements without knowing what you are doing. So far, we’ve only mentioned four minerals, sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium. You can imagine how complicated it can get when you consider the relationship between the other minerals, such as copper, zinc, manganese, chromium, phosphorus, iron, and so forth. The only way you can tell what supplements to take for your specific physical/emotional imbalances is to use the results of hair analysis or kinesiological muscle testing.

Ran out of enzymes today so I decide to go the entire day without them to see what would happen. I had a blueberry muffin for breakfast, tuna sandwich for lunch, apple for an afternoon snack and chicken pasta for dinner.

By mid-afternoon and into the evening before dinner, I notice I have a lot of gas. The enzymes are working wonders because I haven’t had this much gas in a very long time. So whatever is still wrong, is having an effect on my digestion. Interesting because I was kind of under the impression that I had solved that problem. I was only taking the enzymes for the assimilation of the vitamins.

I really thought that the adrenal complex would make a difference to my overall energy but I can’t really say that it has. I added three potassium and three chromium yesterday. Chromium to remove the excess copper and potassium for my muscle twitching.

The vibration seems to back too. Very weak but noticeable. I really thought that taking the extra zinc had an effect on the vibration but I’m still taking the same dosage as I did when I had the four days without any vibration and it’s still there.

I’ve been keeping the same dosage and routine for the past two weeks and the only difference seems to be candida. I know candida can have an effect on the nervous system and cause gas so I’m wondering now if candida is the cause of the vibration? Only one way to find out I guess…Get rid of the candida.

Still vibrating…
