“I saw so many diseases that I was working on to be due to a parasite and a toxin in combination. All diseases are due to a parasite, something that’s trying to live on you. Even if it’s a bacterium, that’s really a parasite in a sense, a toxin, maybe a solvent, maybe a heavy metal that’s facilitating that invader,” says Dr. Hulda Clark, PhD (6:18). Clark has her doctorate in Cellular Biology. She is also a naturopath.
One example she describes is diabetes. “You have the pancreatic fluke invading the pancreas and pollutant wood alcohol, wood alcohol, which pollutes nearly all the processed foods we have on the market in tiny amounts. By the time you’re drinking and eating it all day long it adds up to too much,” she says (7:20). “That combination I always see in diabetes.”
Woodrow C. Monte, PhD, RD and Professor Emeritus of Food Science and Nutrition at Arizona State University, says methanol, wood alcohol, is found highest in cigarettes, diet foods or drinks containing aspartame, packaged fruit and vegetables or their juices, shelf canned jellies, jams and marmalades, smoked food, overly ripe fruit and vegetables and chewing gum.
He says liquor falls under the same category saying, “The problem here is that spoiled fruit is often contaminated by bacteria that release methanol from pectin.”
Tomato sauces cooked for 3 hours with no lid test with no methanol content.
Vegetables, fruits, jellies, jams and marmalades made fresh and stored in the refrigerator do not pose a risk for methanol content.
Methanol could be entering our systems through our water supply and chemicals as the National Toxicology Program says, “Most of the methanol manufactured worldwide is used in the production of chemicals such as formaldehyde, methyl tertiary butyl ether, acetic acid, methyl methacrylate, and dimethyl terephthalate. It also is used in the treatment of wastewater and sewage.”
They go on to say, “Food is the primary source of human methanol exposure. People also are exposed to methanol through two direct food additives, aspartame and dimethyl dicarbonate (DMDC), which are metabolized to produce methanol.”
Clark says, “If you correct those two things you recover from your diabetes.” (7:40).
