In the year 2022, the cumulative effects of overpopulation, pollution and some apparent climate catastrophe has caused severe worldwide shortages of food, water and housing. Their food “Soylent Green” consists of various synthetic substances of unknown origin. Natural food is only available to the rich elite.
Movie plot of the 1973 sci-fi film “Soylent Green”. There’s a dark secret about Soylent (...is people).
In 2014 a meal replacement drink company called Soylent is being founded. It’s supposed to be a time-saving and nutritionally superior food, designed for human needs, without the unhealthy sugars, cholesterol and saturated fats. Soylent founder Rob Rhinehart's altruistic goal is to end world hunger. It would make all the annoying cooking and money-wasting eating-out in restaurants redundant. Long-time goal is to fit all daily nutritional needs into one pill.
Soylent is one of countless synthetic protein shakes that are recommended by health experts and heavily advertised for as the sustainable food of the future.
“What was the inspiration for this? Did you see someone in a coma with a feeding tube, and you thought, 'I'll have what ” Stephen Colbert
Astronaut food was developed under the hypothesis that humans wouldn’t actually need natural food, but only it’s containing chemicals and elements, ideally in a fragmented form. The idea was to create a superior and perfectly balanced food inside a lab.
Those notions came out of the reductionistic, materialistic and mechanistic worldview of modern medicine, which has no comprehension of nature’s complexity and no insights into human needs.
II. Suitable for weight gain?
A myth among doctors is that drinks like Ensure and Soylent are easy to digest. This misconceptions is derived from the simplistic assumption that digestion is nothing but the splitting up of food into it’s constituents. In fact it's not possible to replicate the complex process of digestion in vitro.
The heavy and bloated feeling, the many GI issues protein hydrolysates are causing is testimony formula food is actually hard to handle for the body, gives you false satiety cues, and unsuitable for weight gain. Predigested proteins are believed to act in the intestine to initiate the feeling of the end of a meal, leading to smaller meals an fewer calories. For this reason the same protein drinks are marketed for weight loss as well.
adjective [Latin patiens.]
1. Having the quality of enduring evils without murmuring or fretfulness; sustaining afflictions of body or mind with fortitude, calmness. It is followed by of before the evil endured. Webster's Dictionary 1828
Bioavailability is a complex process involving several different stages: liberation, absorption, distribution, metabolism and elimination phases.
Synthetics do not get absorbed by the body in the same way as natural vitamins because they have been “isolated”—they are separated from the entire vitamin complex and trace minerals and enzymes. What a synthetic vitamin is lacking, the body tries to make up for by itself and depletes its existing nutrients in the process.
Article: Trace element deficiencies in long-term tube fed patient
Article: Hair loss in long-term or home parenteral nutrition: are micronutrient deficiencies to blame?
Formula drinks damage the gut biome, and cause a long time weakened immune system and intestinal distress.
In a HUEL experiment on German television, the participants quit after four days for feeling bad.
The results: “With certain so-called good germs of the microbiota, the number has definitely gone down. That means we have an imbalance. This in turn can then possibly lead to a metabolic disorder. An important parameter indicates that the intestinal permeability, i.e. the permeability to toxins, is increased. This means that unpleasant germs can give off toxins, which in turn have to be detoxified in the liver, i.e. stress the liver.”
Article: Food compositions can also alter the luminal environment, intestinal barrier function and gut microbiota with concomitant effect on dietary protein digestibility, peptide transport, and bioavailability.
Doctors react skeptically to the debate surrounding the issue of force-feeding. Switching to artificial nutrition means great physical and psychological stress. A delicate matter that needs to be approached carefully. Because, according to Dr. Peter Weiss, the artificially nourished body is going back to an emergency program: from blood pressure to the functioning of white blood cells, spinal cord and thyroid gland, in fact everything changes in hunger patients.
In many cases the body goes into a starvation mode while being artificially fed. RAF terrorist HOLGER MEINS starved in his hunger strike 1972 down to 85 lbs, in spite of being force-fed (artificially through a tube). Formula food is not real food, it's only an imitate, a simulacrum, which makes it so popular with weight loss fads.
IX. Refeeding Syndrome demystified
“The refeeding syndrome unfortunately is encountered in modern clinical practice and is relatively poorly recognized or understood.“
“RFS, which is potentially fatal, defined as “significant fluid and electrolyte abnormalities pertaining to metabolic disturbances following rapid oral, enteral or parenteral refeeding in chronically undernourished patients.” The most profound biochemical abnormality is hypophosphatemia, while other biochemical abnormalities include a disturbance of sodium and fluid balance; a deficiency of thiamine; hypomagnesemia; hypokalemia; and changes in protein, fat, and carbohydrate metabolism.”
A Scientific Study Discovers Problems
“In 2017, the journal Bone published a joint study from the Mayo Clinic, carried out in conjunction with Yale University. Out of 51 cases of young children who were given Nutricia Neocate as a primary food source, all but three (94%) suffered from rickets as well as dangerously low phosphate levels.“
“In 92% of the AN patients there was osteopenia (bone loss), in 38% even
osteoporosis, although 90% received estrogen therapy.”
Artificial feeding causes in both infants and anorexics bone diseases and can
be fatal for emaciated inpatients. The metabolic changes caused by starvation
do exist, but for a long time doctors did not know how to deal with them
and until today do not recognize the connection with artificial nutrition. RFS
is also diagnosed in post-surgical parenteral nutrition (TPN) without prior
Article: 75% were identified as high-risk for refeeding syndrome before starting total parenteral nutrition.
With a carefully planned, high-fat natural diet, if necessary with supplements (phosphate, thiamine), RFS can be avoided. With a ketogenic diet, you get a stable blood sugar just as with a 24-hour drip.
X. Protein Needs
Of all mammals, human breast milk has the lowest protein content (roughly equivalent to that of fruit and vegetables) because humans are the slowest growers. It follows that adults also have low protein requirements. The strongest animal in the world (gorillas) has an extremely low protein diet.
The naturalness is more important for the protein quality than the amino acid profile. Most cases of protein deficiency occur with caloric undereating, also with extremely unbalanced diets, with malabsorption, or because of denatured protein.
In the beginning of the force-feeding I received a ultra-high-protein (40%) diet, which not only led to weight loss, but also worsened my blood levels.
Protein poisoning (also referred to colloquially as rabbit starvation,) refers to an unverified acute form of malnutrition that some have speculated may be caused by a diet deficient in fat.
Only very recently mainstream medicine has recognized the importance of fat for emaciated patients.
In spite of overdosing on protein I developed a protein deficiency I hadn’t had on a low-calorie vegan diet.
Study: An exception to this was the group of well nourished infected animals ingesting a 20% hydrolysed casein diet. From the 5th week of infection onward, their body weights were observed to drop progressively and at the end of the experimental period their weights were similar to those of non-infected undernourished mice.
Even when fed balanced diets, in this experimental model, the infected liver seems to be unable to metabolize the surplus of ingested aminoacids, with the result that the mice die from hepatic coma.
Study: Adolescents recovering from AN remained protein depleted at 7 months after baseline assessment, even though they were weight restored.
In 2016 I managed a rapid weight gain in a different clinic because I rejected the supposedly life-essential tube feeding and supplemental drinks. My protein levels were back within the normal range long before my weight was restored.
Study: Five patients were fed a diet providing 20% of energy from protein and seven patients were fed a diet with only 10% of energy There was no significant difference between the two diets for elemental metabolic balance, changes in anthropometric measures, in weight gain, or in potassium-40 counts; nor was there any difference in the energy cost of weight gain, in the rise in basal metabolic rate, or the change in hematocrit, serum albumin, or cholesterol. However, blood urea nitrogen was higher in those patients who received the high protein diet. Satisfactory nutritional rehabilitation of patients with anorexia nervosa does not require a high protein diet.
In 2014 in a suicidal and severely emaciated state I was put into a psychiatric ward where my ideology and the psychiatrists’ clashed. I refused supplemental drinks, calling them poison, and knew for the mentioned reasons that they were not helpful for weight gain. After escaping from the ward, a disciplinary force-feeding was decided.
My prediction that I would starve to death was proof of my "delusionality". As in so many cases, I quickly got caught in a death spiral. Complications and intolerances led to intensive care unit stays, antibiotics and pain medication, and continuous weight loss. For four months, the doctors insisted on their dogma that I couldn’t eat any natural food in my condition because my diet had to be precisely adjusted according to scientific research. Shortly before I died of starvation, I was discharged with the diagnosis: refeeding syndrome (for a short time differential diagnosis: AIDS). The diagnosis: delusions was however revised, which was an indirect admission of error.
XII. Doctors don’t believe in their own treatments
According to a study, 88.3% doctors opted for the Do-Not-Prolong Life.
• 90% would refuse CPR
• 90% would refuse dialysis
• 80% would refuse most major surgeries
• 80% would refuse most invasive diagnostics
• 80% would refuse a feeding tube
• 60% would refuse antibiotics
• 60% would refuse IV hydration
“Up to 67% of all cancer patients are malnourished and around 50% show symptoms of tumor cachexia at the time of their death. However, according to Dr. Oliver Marschal malnutrition hardly receives any attention in oncological everyday life. Some doctors have classified weight loss as a natural part of the disease.”
Study: Nasogastric and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tubes were associated with moderate hypoxaemia.
Article: Acid-base homeostasis disturbances appear to increase the oxygen consumption required for maintenance metabolism
Article: Chronic metabolic acidosis may be the cause of cachexia: Body fluid pH correction may be an effective therapy
Oxygen deprivation and an acidic body causes not only weight loss, but creates anxiety, which explains the panicky mask wearers.
XIV. Healthy Life Years
According to the European Commission, Germany had the lowest average number of healthy life years in 2008 with 55.8 years for men and 57.4 years for women, and the average number of HLY in the 11 major European countries was 62.4 years for men and 62.6 years for women.
One possible explanation would be the upside-down nutritional guidelines, which recommended a low-fat and low-calorie (!) diet to anorexics (more here) and encouraged cancer patients to consume sugar:
“No association could be established between the intake of energy-supplying nutrients including carbohydrates [sugar] and the risk of cancer.”
“A large number of studies could not find any indication that the table sugar content in the diet influences the risk of diabetes.”
“[...] there was no connection between a high intake of sugars (mostly added sugars) and weight gain.”
Another factor is the high public expenditure on the health care system(ranking No.1 in Europe), which should be rather called disease care system. There is nothing better you can do for your health than avoiding hospitals and doctors. During physicians’ strikes traditionally the death rate drops.
There is an explanation why in Germany, despite the people's poor health, the life expectancy is European average:
XV. Verdict on artificial nutrition
What the court has announced, says Putz, means "life support until you can go no longer". And even "unlawful conduct on the part of the doctor has no consequences under civil law".
In addition, the judgment that a life is "absolutely worth preserving" could not only apply to life-prolonging measures. It could also contradict the previous case law of the BGH on the so-called "child as harm": According to this, a doctor is liable for child maintenance and also for treatment costs if he did not point out circumstances such as impending or existing harm during the examination of an expectant mother of the embryo, which would have justified an abortion.
As much as child abortion is encouraged in Germany, inhumane life support at the end of life is being promoted. What does that say about our society?
In 1948, the Hippocratic Oath was changed to the decleration of Geneva to allow doctors child abortions.
Even though there is a downward-trend, almost 900,000 children are being "aborted" (a euphemism for murder) each year in the U.S.; in the vast majority of cases, the mother's life is not in danger.
In Switzerland, young physicians are no longer advised against abortions during their training. On the contrary: if someone wants to become a gynecologist, they are forced to perform abortions.
XVI. Enteral feeding for advanced dementia
Studies show that tube feeding does not improve the nutritional status in subjects with severe dementia, it causes excessive use of restraints and it is ineffective in preventing and treating pressure ulcers and aspiration pneumonia. Enteral feeding doubles the risk of dying.
Nature has arranged that dying people eat and drink less, because in this state the body becomes very acidic, which has desired effects: it comes to a loss of consciousness, it has pain-relieving and also anxiety-relieving effects.
Although it relieves the nursing staff and relatives, tube feeding often leads to complications and can agonizingly prolong the dying process.
Study: “Other investigators observed that only 50% of patients with dementia and inadequate oral intake are likely to survive more than 6 months after percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy placement. The most significant factor that predicted poor survival in patients at 6 months was a serum albumin concentration less than 2.8 g/dL.”
Many tube-fed dementia patients die from a protein deficiency, too.
“The use of our formula [intact protein]was associated with an acceptable long-term mean serum albumin level of more than 4 g/dL. This is in contrast to the observation that despite a seemingly adequate level of protein and energy intake, approximately one third of geriatric patients who receive enteral feeding with a formula providing high energy and protein nutrition were noted to have persistently low serum albumin levels.”
XVII. Tube feeding as a crime
“Performing PEG tube feeding for financial or personal reasons alone is not ethically justifiable. We call it bodily harm” Professor Georg Marckmann
“The Federal Ministry of Health called for the introduction of a general indication for artificial feeding for eating disorders. In a newspaper interview, the spokesman for the BMGS raved about a "small, manageable group who has not much left to expect from life.” [...]”
“The ministry's guideline has a political background and it is in industry interests rather than the quality of care.” G-BA chairman Rainer Hess
FRESENIUS was fined 231.7 million US dollars for corruption. From 2007 to 2016, employees of the group bribed doctors and public officials in several countries.
Artificial nutrition, especially through a tube, is not curative for ED, but promotes eating-disordered behavior. PEG tubes are associated with high risks (I almost died of peritonitis myself). Eating disordered people should be encouraged to eat like "normal", "healthy" people and to learn about healthy eating habits.
“[...]the well-financed steam-roller marketing techniques of the food industry to sell totally unaffordable and inappropriate infant foods in impoverished countries while mouthing sanctimonious platitudes about their world role in improving child nutrition.” He coined the term “commerciogenic malnutrition” to describe the malnutrition caused by such ill considered promotion.”
“A study conducted in Barbados in 1969 showed that 82% of the mothers were “stretching” the formula. They were making a 4-day can last between 5 days and 3 weeks.”
“At least one million children in developing countries, Tarzie Vittachi of Unicef estimates, die every year because of incorrect and inadequate nutrition with breast milk substitutes, not because the mothers cannot breastfeed, but because they were told that a certain baby milk powder was "better", "modern", "more scientific", "fancier" or simply "more comfortable.”
“While human milk is highly protective against both malnutrition and diarrhea, with improper use of bottle formulas, the two react synergistically. Underweight babies are prone to infections that create diarrhea and the baby suffering with constant diarrhea is unable to absorb enough nutrients from what food it gets.“
Study: “Feeding [infants] a hydrolyzed protein food led to a temporarily lower weight gain in the first year of life.”
Studies have also shown that infants fed protein hydrolysate give sooner signals that they are full. The researchers' hypothesis: “Infants may dislike the taste of protein hydrolysate formula and consequently consume less, thereby gaining weight more slowly.”
The better (sweeter) taste of breast milk does not make babies drink larger amounts either. The opposite is the case. Study: "The energy intake of infants who were given infant formula with cow's milk in addition to breast milk tended to be 20% higher than the energy intake of exclusively breastfed babies.”
The difference could be even greater for babies fed exclusively formula. The explanation is that cow's milk’s composition does not meet the nutritional requirements of an infant. The main reason why babies have a slower weight gain with protein hydrolysate is the mentioned “appetite-suppressing” effect and the lower bioavailability. The bitter taste could also be a factor, but most of the times it is covered with flavorings.
Study shows that breastfeeding reduced the risk of sudden infant death syndrome by ∼50% at all ages.
IXX. Paradigm change #1 (2019)
A year ago the medical profession finally came to agree with me on two points, namely that fat, not protein, is the most important nutrient for anorexics in recovery, and that calorie restriction is not necessary. Due to extreme hunger, it can be very harmful to limit the amount of calories, as was common practice in clinical ED treatment. The background of the medical concerns about "too many calories" is that the body can only tolerate small amounts of synthetic food. With a natural diet, anorexics can eat as much as their body tells them to.
Article: Shifting Paradigms: Continuous Nasogastric Feeding With High Caloric Intakes in Anorexia Nervosa
Protein powders (isolates) and weight gainers are an even bigger scam than weight loss shakes. On the one hand, it is wrongly assumed that more protein causes greater muscle growth and that bodybuilders cannot ingest sufficient protein through regular food; on the other hand, there is the idea that protein isolate bypasses the digestive process and is more quickly available to the body after a workout.
Study: The authors reported, quite suprisingly, that intact whey protein results in a rapid absorption of amino acids into the blood compared with the hydrolyzed whey protein.
Article: Although largely ignored by the authors of sports nutrition textbooks, the extraction of amino acids by the intestine have a critical influence on their availability to peripheral tissues and therefore, on whole body protein metabolism. In fact, the PDV account for 20 to 35% of whole-body protein turnover and energy expenditure. Thus, the notion than an amino acid is an amino acid no matter how administered is clearly fallacious. The kinetics of absorption of amino acids can substantially modulate their ability to stimulate muscle protein anabolism.
Article: In fact, the researchers found that Whey Protein Hydrolysate resul
“A randomized control study design focuses on one factor, one outcome and generally one mechanism at a time. This is not nutrition; it is pharmacology. Such studies often create more confusion than clarification.”
Dr. Colin Campbell
High-caloric and complete nutrition
Physicians are often singled-out as a group with low rates of hand hygiene compliance. A classical study, for example, found that physicians had about half the rate of compliance when compared with nurses. One interpretation is that physicians are arrogant, sloppy, recalcitrant, incorrigible, inept or oblivious.
“The doctors attributed childbed fever, like cholera, to a "genus epidemicus" that was dependent on as yet unknown atmospheric, cosmic or "telluric", that is, earth-bound factors.”
Ignaz Semmelweis, who exposed the real cause for the prevalence of childbed fever was shunned by his colleagues and died under mysterious circumstances inside a psychiatric ward (cause of death: wound infection!)
IXXX. Customer Experiences
“I bought this product primarily so that my child did not lose as much weight as is often the case after an operation. A weight loss of 7 kg within 14 days was terrifying - for a child, which had previously not even weighed 50 kg and it’s almost 1.60 m tall, it just looked terribly skinny in addition to being disfigured by the operating room and had no strength whatsoever!!! I’m just looking for "normal" products with a lot of calories changed (Greek yogurt etc.)”
“These formulas, because of their terrible ingredients, were making many children vomited excessively (many times per day), . Even for those that did not vomit while fed these formulas and appeared to be thriving on them, time was the real test. I have had a very large number of parents reach out to me with children who, after several years of being fed these formulas, had developed type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cardiovascular problems, renal problems, and more from these “gentle” formulas of “complete nutrition”.”
“My cancerous cousin literally starved to death with this stuff. It kept losing weight, not gaining weight.”
“My father was given a tube with fresubin where he produced a lot of mucus and within a very short time he got 2-3 pneumonia and ultimately died from it.“
“I had a circulatory collapse from Fresubin. And ended up on intensive surveillance. According to the doctors, it was too much.“
“I also had the experience ... my son lost almost 2 kilos ..... from 16 to 14 kilos .... I thought it couldn't be. I had already upped the calories but he couldn't take it anyway, complained a lot about stomach ache, vomited more often. Since I cook myself, he has reached his 16 kilos in no time, he is dazzling and no more complaints.”
“This was his first week on full tube feedings. He had three days of formula and then started vomiting all of it. He couldn’t tolerate it at all, just the smell made him sick. He is a tall guy, 240lbs. He lost 20 pounds in the last two weeks”
“The human body isn’t set up to digest the large amounts or corn syrup and other chemicals in traditional formulas. And while for some they have no choice as they can’t tolerate the real food options those are not the norm. Most are on formula because the doctors and nutritionists push formula because it’s easier for them and they get kickbacks from companies like nestle. We use nourish, the adult version would be liquid hope. It’s 100% all organic foods and our insurance covered it because it’s still complete nutrition.”
“The dieticians and hospitals have to advise against self-cooked tube food because the management usually has contracts with Nutricia. The manufacturers of the tubes themselves often have contracts with manufacturers of formula tube feeds or manufacture them themselves. Of course they say that you can only use synthetic food. I probed my daughter with only homemade food for almost 4 years, weight fit well, no vomiting etc. The probe did not dissolve either. In the beginning with tube food, she repeatedly vomitted, had indigestion all the time. would try it again and again with cooked and let nothing talk to me from the hospital staff.”
“It has caused physical pain and fatigue. Unfortunately, no weight gain either. Unfortunately not usable for me. I've been feeling much better since I dropped Fresubin.”
Every year millions of people die unnecessarily from formula food. Artificial feeding is medically indicated in only very few cases. Most often it either leads to a premature, agonizing death or it delays a natural process of dying in an agonizing way. Tube feeding does not save any money. The lower spending on nursing staff benefits the profits of the hospital and pharmaceutical industries. For over a thousand years, doctors didn't want to see their "panacea" mercury was not curing but poisoning their patients. Even now the medical profession is trying at all cost to prevent a paradigm shift. Formula food is not bad science because it was designed for depopulation along with vaccines, 5G and abortions. It is an open secret that allopathic medicine is not curative and often deadly. A killing and life-preventing medical profession means a deadly danger for all defenseless. To quote Hufeland, doctors who live on killing are “the most dangerous people in the state”.
Study: The incidence of diarrhea in patients with hypoalbuminemia due to acute or chronic malnutrition during enteral feeding
A reductionist paradigm in modern nutritional sciences
“In the era of ‘quantifying nutritionism’, running from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century, the focus of nutrition scientists was on discovering and quantifying the nutrients in foods and the nutritional requirements of bodies. The aim (…) was to identify the “protective” nutrients required for normal body functioning and growth, and particularly to prevent nutrient deficiency diseases. The era of “good-and-bad nutritionism” beginning in the 1960s was notable for the emergence of the novel idea of “good” and “bad” nutrients and for the emphasis on the need to avoid or reduce bad nutrients in particular. Negative dietary messages dominated this era, such as the low-fat campaign urging everyone to eat less fat. Dietary advice also shifted from the aim of preventing nutrient deficiencies to that of reducing the risk of chronic diseases, particularly heart disease. The present era of “functional nutritionism” began in the mid-1990s. Its distinctive feature is the rise of a more positive and targeted view of nutrients and foods as “functional” in relation to bodily health. Functional nutritionism also carries the expectation that particular nutrients, foods, and dietary patterns can enhance and optimize our state of health or particular bodily functions”. More fundamentally, one finds the origin of reductionism in René Descartes who viewed reality as the sum of components that could be divided into isolated entities, applying a mechanistic vision of the world. According to him, this decomposition and the resulting simplification would lead to the most appropriate explanation.
Before the reductionist paradigm, health was considered more holistically. Today, reductionism seems to have reached its limits as it has been pushed to its extremes in Western science. Reductionism impacts on nutritional sciences are more deleterious than beneficial ones and include threats to biodiversity and the environment, a sharp increase in the prevalence of obesity and diabetes worldwide, the destruction of food health potential through fractionation/refining and ingredient recombination and deterioration of animal well-being through animal agriculture.” By Anthony Fardet
Nutricia was the manufacturer of the supplemental drinks, I almost starved to death on. They know there's no future in formula food.
