Leslie Kenton writes in her book "ultra Health" that, apart from the normal mucus secreted by the
body's mucous membranes, the body also produces mucoids in response to toxicity or potentially
harmful substances. These mucoids include gel-like substances such as mucin, mucopolysaccharides and
mucoproteins. Unlike normal mucus, which is transparent and slippery, this excessive mucoid matter
tends to be hard and cloudy.

Kenton says European researchers have discovered that many foods have mucoid-forming properties and
are therefore called mucoid-forming foods, and thhat they call this mucoid-producing properties in
the digestive system "digestive leucocytosis".

She says a diet high in mucoid-forming foods lowers resistance to infection and clogs the the
digestive system wand lymphatics with stagnant mucoid substances that lower vitality and encourage
the development of chronic illness.

Most healing regimes are based on low mucoid-forming foods, Kenton says.

Dairy products, particularly those made from pasteurised cows' milk, are considered the most mucoid-
forming of all foods, she says. Second are meat, poultry, fish and eggs. Then come soya-based foods
such as tofu and textured vegetable protein, pulses (legumes), nuts and grains.

Fruits and vegetables are totally non-mucoid-forming, she says.

These substances are components of normal mucus, and are neither hard nor cloudy.

What European researchers? Where did they publish their discoveries?

Digestive leukocytosis is the normal slight increase in white blood cells that occurs after
digestion. It has nothing whatever to do with mucus.

Nothing in the digestive system is stagnant unless there is an obstruction, and bowel obstructions
are not caused by mucus. The fluid conducted by the "lymphatics" is lymph, which is neither mucus
nor "mucoid substance" and the lymph vessels and glands do not get "clogged" with mucus.

Proteins are very large molecules which cannot pass through the walls of the small intestine and
into the blood stream, which is good, because they could not be used by our cells, and many of them
would be harmful in the body. Your digestive system breaks all the proteins in your food down into
their component amino acids, which are very small molecules and can be absorbed. These amino acids
are essential nutrients and are used by the body to build new tissues and to make such essential
substances as enzymes and antibodies (and mucus). The cells that use amino acids cannot tell, and do
not care what foods were digested to supply them. Surplus amino acids in the bloodstream that are
not needed for these building processes can be burned for energy, or converted into fats and stored
in your butt or love handles. They do NOT get processed into "excess mucus." So there simply are no
such things as "mucoid forming foods."

>

This is the only correct statement so far. Carrots aren't "mucoid forming," either.

I have not read "Ultra Health" by Leslie Kenton. But your statements here about mucus and foods are
way out of line with what is known about anatomy and physiology, and if you have accurately reported
Ms. Kenton's writing, she is wrong as well.

Re: Excessive mucous in body-how to get rid of it?

Rich Shewmaker, for some reason, does not want our friends who have an excess mucous problem to be
aware of the fact that a simple adjustment to their diet can help to decrease the amount of mucoids
in their bodies.

Here's a story about the "Worst Doctor in America", posted to a couple of newsgroups earlier this
year. The poster nominated Robert Dowling MD as "Worst Doctor" for throwing an ice cream and
cheesecake party for his patient to whom he had given an artificial heart. The patient suffered a
severe setback, experienced an overwhelming buildup of mucous and secretions in his lungs. Became he
was too weak to expel that mucous, so an artificial breathing machine was used to keep him alive.

Please note the poster's comment that the doctor's ignorance was probably due to the fact that
nutrition is not a required course of study in medical school. This is a rather astonishing
revelation, considering that good old Doctor Hippocrates, honoured as the father of medicine and
whose oath doctors are still required to take, once said "Let food be your medicine, and your
medicine food". It is something ignored or supressed by modern medicine.

THE WORST DOCTOR IN AMERICA

There have been many nominations for the worst doctor in America. Insurance companies no longer want
to insure bad physicians. Many doctors can no longer afford to practice the art of healing because
of escalating malpractice rates.

In my opinion, there is one doctor who merits the "Worst Doctor" title above all other incompetents.

He is Robert Dowling, M.D.

During June of 2001, Dowling's Louisville, Kentucky, patient was given just thirty days to live.

After a lifetime of abuse, this man's cardiovascular system sent a series of signals, all bad, to
himself and to his attending physician.

A lifetime of eating the wrong foods can translate into a painfully short future.

What hath man wrought? A new artificial heart was implanted into Dowling's patient. He became the
first human ever to receive a fully operational self-contained machine inside of his chest. The
"AbiorCor pump" was implanted on July 2, 2001. A day that will live in history.

Thirty days after the surgery, Robert Tools and his physician enjoyed a one-month anniversary
celebration commemorating his survival.

The lead researcher/physician, Robert Dowling, M.D., had this to say:

"The goal of all of us working together is to give patients of this device a good quality of life."

How did Dr. Dowling honor his patient?

By staging a party for the guest of honor, and serving him ice cream and cheesecake.

Mr. Artificial-Heart-Recipient may have had a bionic heart, but his arteries had been saturated by a
lifetime of similar foods containing cholesterol and saturated animal fat.

Ms. Dowling most certainly made a bad cardiovascular system just a little bit worse. His symbolic
gesture immortalizes a physician's arrogance. Doctors such as Dowling believe that diet plays
little role in human health and healing.

Ben Cohen of Ben & Jerry's fame had quadruple heart surgery at about the same time. One wonders
whether his physician threw him an ice cream party too.

http://www.notmilk.com/benheart.html

Would you think it wise to eat ice cream and cheesecake after having life-saving heart surgery?

Mt. Dowling explained why he would feed his critically ill artificial heart recipient saturated
animal fat containing casein, a tenacious glue and mucous forming protein.

"The goal...is to give patients...a good quality of life..."

How did Mr. Tools react to the cheesecake and ice cream?

He suffered a severe setback, and was placed on a ventilator to assist his breathing. The
artificial heart recipient experienced an overwhelming buildup of mucous and secretions in his
lungs. Mr. Tools became too weak to expel that mucous, so the artificial breathing machine was used
to keep him alive.

Eat casein and produce histamines, then mucous. The reaction is often delayed, occurring 12-15 hours
after consumption.

By eliminating all milk and dairy for just one week, most people note the differences, which include
less mucous, better sleep patterns, more energy, better bowel movements, clarity of thought, and
muscle, bone, and back pain relief.

Why don't Dr. Dowling know this? Could the fact that nutrition is not a required course of study in
medical school have anything to do with a physician's ignorance?

The Abicor device can be a lifesaver, but dairy-loving doctors like Dowling can be hazardous to
one's health.

Please share the following (which appeared in the Journal of Allergy and Immunology in March of
1998) with your physician so that he or she does not repeat Dowling's folly:

"Cow's milk is one of the most frequent food allergens. Whole casein appears to be highly
allergenic...85% of the patients presented a response to each of the four caseins. "

OBITUARY NOTICE

Ice cream and cheesecake were given to a patient soon after life-saving heart surgery. The man was
killed, and his doctor should be charged as an accomplice. The murder weapons? A spoon and a fork.
The motives? Arrogance and ignorance.

That was just the prescription given to artificial heart recipient, Robert Tools, by his so-called
healer, Robert Dowling, M.D.

Mu. AbiorCor recipient died soon after Dr. Dowling allowed him to attend his final party. Dowling
blamed his death on long-standing health problems.

In early November of 2001, Tools feasted upon a cheesesteak sandwich and chocolate milkshake during
an outing with the mayor of Louisville, Kentucky.

A hospital press release noted that bleeding started soon after the meal and shortly thereafter,
Tools' organs began to fail. The unlucky man suffered a stroke Nov. 11. He died the following Friday
afternoon.

The hospital said Tools' death was unrelated to the stroke.

Tools is survived by his wife, Carol, and two children. His wife's comments:

"After our decision to participate in this experimental procedure, he has been able to make a
difference for mankind, enjoy some of his favorite things in life, and experience a bit of notoriety
- and for Bob, nothing could have been better."

Perhaps a diet low in saturated animal fat and cholesterol could have been better, Mrs. Tools. A plant-
based diet may very well have extended your husband's life, and that example may have made much more
of a contribution to mankind.

Doctor's prescription: Ice cream, cheesecake, and cheesesteak sandwich. A recipe for heart disease,
suffering, and death.

Individual cellsalts. Each one causes a different deficiency symptom. See below for an excerpt from

I don't believe it, mostly because I don't believe the government is that smart or that overarching.
I also think the idea of one-world government is a fantasy.

Sure. As I said, it's human nature to believe in your own product. Even if you're a fraud, you'll
still believe in it, which seems contradictory, but that's human nature for you.

Wow, you're wide open there, but I'll let it go this time. You missed a lot, weeks of spam from good

I think he got warned by his ISP and that's what caused him to stop posting the ads.

You have it wrong. I'm not only trying to explain that there are no "mucoid-forming foods" but that
there is also no "excess mucus problem."

I am well aware that you can come up with lots of cut and paste support for your pet mucus theory
of disease. After all, it has been popular among scientific illiterates since it was proposed by
Dr. Jarvis a century ago. There is plenty of verbiage on the internet about the hollow Earth theory
or about the exploration of the moon being faked in Hollywood, too, but those fantasies are not
true either.

I'm curious. Just what specific symptoms and signs do you consider indicative of "excess mucus"?
Runny nose? Stopped up nose? Productive cough? Tired feeling? Esophageal reflux? Shortness of
breath? Please be specific.

You didn't read that sentence how it was meant to be read. What I am saying is that the whole world
is being manipulated to become a one-world government, that globalisation is a tool that is being
used to pull this off, that the mass media is manipulated and basically that we are being lied to.
For example the Port Arthur massacre was a planned psyop to remove guns from the Australian
population.

As opposed to who's? What do you think the meaning of life is? Surely nothing can be more important
than finding out what life is all about and uncovering deceptions?

Is a fruit and vegie grower biased? Is a builder who sells his services biased?

But I thought this group was like the soapies where you don't have to watch it all the time but can
still tell what is happening? Obviously I've missed something.

So how long since ginseng Dave has tried to sell his product? Perhaps he's realised his mistake and
is now just trying to talk about ginseng and health in general. He seems to have a good grasp of
alternative medicine.

Yes in both cases. If you needed a builder for a project, you'd listen to his sales pitch *but*,
realizing that he was inherently biased, you'd *also* seek out people he's done work for and find
out how satisfied they were with his work. If you were running a restaurant, you wouldn't just
take the grower's word as to the quality of his produce; you'd find out what his customers were
saying about it.

In other words, you'd gather *evidence*. Information about how satisfied a grower's or builder's
customers are with his work is evidence. A grower's or builder's claims about how satisfied he is
with his own work, OTOH, aren't evidence, because they convey no information about how well his
products or services will meet *your* needs.

And you would *not* gather that evidence solely on the basis of testimonials provided by the
supplier. You would do your own homework. Because if either supplier had only a small percentage of
satisfied customers, he could still get plenty of testimonials out of them.

And you'd also look for some *objective* evidence in either case. You'd want evidence that the
grower's produce meets your jurisdiction's agricultural standards. You'd want evidence that the
builder's work meets your jurisdiction's building code.

And guess what? Honest growers and builders *expect* their customers to check out the evidence for
themselves. They *encourage* them to do so. It's only the peddlers of snake oil who act all put out
if their customers are unwilling to act solely on their word. If a grower claimed that the
agricultural inspectors were out to get him, or a builder claimed that the building inspectors
refused to pass his work simply because he refused to pay them off, you'd get pretty suspicious.
Those are classic red flags.

Yet far too many promoters of "alternative medicine" make exactly such arguments. Like the dishonest
grower or builder, they whine if anybody expects them to meet the same standards as their
competitors.

So if someone "believes in" a pharmaceutical product, they aren't biased?
