...And I was astounded at the suggestion that people need to balance their copper/zinc ratios, first.
You see, I think that copper pipes in our homes play a part.
Plus there is a pile of copper used in the water, to keep down the growth of algae.
However, I also think our plants are wonderful because they refuse to take up more than they need of any nutrient.
Which leads me to think that the dried up ancient oceans MUST contain balanced minerals, selected by ocean plants...we only need to 'go for a swim' in a 1% solution, in our own bathtubs, to benefit from the balance.
I also like the idea of restoring balance slowly...because I suspect that the body may be so eager to dump, say, mercury, that the stuff may leach where it isn't wanted, too fast.
I am delighted to learn more about flax seed, and fish oils.
