Copper deficiency is more widespread than is made public.  In fact, copper deficiency is a world wide problem.

Rather than educating the public about the necessity of this essential mineral, it is demonized, and iron is promoted.  Consequently, most people think copper is dangerous to their health.  Nothing could be farther from the truth.  You may wonder why the truth about copper and the body is not being revealed.  Well, think of it this way, if there was an essential mineral that would prevent many of the ailments suffered today, what kind of an effect would that have on the American Medical Association, American Heart Association, and Big Pharma?  It would be devastating economically.

The fact of the matter is, Copper is necessary to circulate the blood which contains iron.  Without sufficient copper in the body, the iron settles in the organs and oxidizes (rusts), this includes the brain.

It would seem only reasonable to assume that most people are iron dominate, and copper deficient. Which may account for many of the diseases faced today, i.e. heart, gut, etc.

Iron accumulation is causing diseases, symptoms, and conditions in the iron overloaded population; a large percentage of the population.  However, there are those who are iron deficient which is a problem in and of its self; have your levels checked.  Copper neutralizes and mobilizes iron in the body; this is why all bio-available copper has been removed from the food and food chain.  You don’t find copper on any food or supplement label.   However, you find it on the pet food labels (Can you guess why?).

Iron destroys the immune system, because it is THE nutrient for all pathogens, viruses, bacteria, tumors, cancers, and any other toxic proteins.  Pathogens thrive and replicate in the presence of iron deposits, because the iron attracts oxygen, ensuring their survival.

Mutations manifest in humans from iron poisoning, and the same is said for food.  They have changed the composition of iron so that it is easily accessible for plant uptake, while degrading substances that are naturally bound to iron in some food plants.  Most iron in the soil is chemically bound, so they have changed the iron to make it available for plant uptake.  As such, it is bio-available when eaten by humans – pure poison.

They have made copper unavailable and iron bio-available.  They have reversed the role of copper and iron. Bio-available copper is THE nutrient and antioxidant that neutralizes and mobilizes iron in the body.

That is why they have made copper unavailable and iron available.  The idea is to load us up with iron while depleting copper status.

The cause of DNA damage is IRON poisoning and copper deficiency.

Genetic Modification IS genetic damage also referred to as genetic mutation.

So now it should be clear for you to understand.  They over complicate with their nonsense sciences, to confuse the general population, and to elevate themselves above everyone else.  Their sciences and research are fraudulent, and their degrees and credentials are fraudulent.

Genetically Modified (damaged) foods were created to increase the iron uptake and availability, while decreasing copper availability.  This is why you should eat only non-GMO, organically grown produce.

Copper The Inflammation Fighter

Copper Recipe

It should be noted that there is a zinc/copper ratio of 10:1.  They should not be taken together, but preferably one in the a.m. and one in the p.m.  It is highly recommended that 200 mcg of Selenium and silica be taken as well.

FDA dosing is questionable (low).  Note that the body pees out approximately 1.3 mgs/day.  However, too much copper like any other mineral can be a problem.  Personally we take 3 to 6 mgs of chelated copper/day (Bluebonnet), and we also store our drinking water in 100% copper cups/mugs, giving that to our pets as well.


A wonderful and inexpensive source of Silica is Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth.  You can purchase it at a feed store or a good hardware store in the garden section.  It is excellent for the gut.

Start out with ½ tsp. per day for about a week, and then increase to 1 tsp., then in a week increase to 1 tbs.

Are you copper deficient?

Neurological and Physical Disorders Associated with Insecticides and Herbicides

There has been a steady increase in neurological disorders that correlate with the increased usage of pesticides and herbicides since WWII.  They include, but are not limited to Autism, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, endocrine disorders, infertility, gender altering, ADD, ADHD, depression, anger, lower intelligence, and declining life expectancy, etc.  Poisoning by acute high-level exposure to certain pesticides, but whether chronic exposure to moderate levels of pesticides is also neurotoxic is more controversial.

In addition, there is a great deal of scientific evidence to show the increase in gut disorders from synthetic chemicals that are currently used for different industrial and agricultural applications, which are leading to widespread contamination of the environmen with adverse effects on human health.

There is also evidence showing that Glyphosate plays a part in the growing epidemic of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver.  Million of people are walking around with the early stages of Fatty Liver without even  knowing it.  It is actually classified as an epidemic.  People will start dying from this disorder within the next 20 years:

Baby Boomers and Alzheimer’s

Furthermore, the Baby Boomer generation born after WWII is the hardest hit of all generations in the form of Alzheimer’s Disease, and a decrease in life expectancy.  In fact, one in eight is predicted to eventually suffer and die from this disease.

In fact, between 1999 and 2014, the death rate of people with Alzheimer’s disease rose from 16.5 deaths per 100,000 people to 25.4 deaths per 100,000, according to the data published in the CDC’s weekly morbidity and mortality report

It is important for people to be aware of the dangers of pesticides and herbicides that are, for whatever reason, legal and encouraged by EPA and FDA in the United States.

Organophosphates and Copper Deficiency

There is a strong connection between copper deficiency and the use of  organophosphates.  Organanophosphates contain manganese (not magnesium).   Manganese would normally bind benignly to copper, but without it, the manganese is free to break the blood/brain barrier, and enter the basil ganglia of the brain.  It then disrupts the neurotransmitter, Dopamine causing irreversible damage to the host, such as Autism, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, endocrine disorders, infertility, gender altering, ADD, ADHD, depression, anger, lower intelligence, and declining life expectancy, etc.

For whatever reason, copper is not recognized by the medical profession or FDA as an important essential mineral, critical to the proper functioning of the brain and body.  It should be noted that there is a zinc/copper ratio of 10:1.  They should not be taken together, but preferably one in the a.m. and one in the p.m.  It is highly recommended that 200 mcg of Selenium and silica be taken as well.

Finally, the following are links and excerpts from articles pertaining to the adverse health effects of both insecticides and herbicides on humans, and other animals.  This is by all means not the only information on the Internet, so research is recommended.

Glyphosate/Roundup (Herbicide)

Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup®, the most widely used herbicide on the planet.[314] Glyphosate enjoys widespread usage on core food crops, in large part because of its perceived nontoxicity to humans. The adoption of genetically engineered “Roundup®-Ready” corn, soy, canola, cotton, alfalfa, and sugar beets has made it relatively easy to control weeds without killing the crop plant, but this means that glyphosate will be present as a residue in derived foods. Unfortunately, weeds among GM Roundup®-Ready crops are developing ever-increasing resistance to Roundup®,[107,221] which requires an increased rate of herbicide application.[26] In 1987, glyphosate was the 17th most commonly used herbicide in the United States, but, in large part due to the introduction of glyphosate-resistant core crops, it became the number one herbicide by 2001.[146] Its usage has increased steadily since then, in step with the rise in autism rates.

Glyphosate’s perceived nontoxicity is predicated on the assumption that our cells do not possess the shikimate pathway, the biological pathway in plants, which is disrupted by glyphosate, and whose disruption is believed to be the most important factor in its toxicity.

There are multiple pathways by which glyphosate could lead to pathology.[248] A major consideration is that our gut bacteria do have the shikimate pathway, and that we depend upon this pathway in our gut bacteria as well as in plants to supply us with the essential aromatic amino acids, tryptophan, tyrosine, and phenylalanine. Methionine, an essential sulfur-containing amino acid, and glycine, are also negatively impacted by glyphosate. Furthermore, many other biologically active molecules, including serotonin, melatonin, melanin, epinephrine, dopamine, thyroid hormone, folate, coenzyme Q10, vitamin K, and vitamin E, depend on the shikimate pathway metabolites as precursors. Gut bacteria and plants use exclusively the shikimate pathway to produce these amino acids. In part because of shikimate pathway disruption, our gut bacteria are harmed by glyphosate, as evidenced by the fact that it has been patented as an antimicrobial agent.[298]

Glyphosate is a likely cause of the recent epidemic in celiac disease.[249] Glyphosate residues are found in wheat due to the increasingly widespread practice of staging and desiccation of wheat right before harvest. Many of the pathologies associated with celiac disease can be explained by disruption of CYP enzymes.[156] Celiac patients have a shortened life span, mainly due to an increased risk to cancer, most especially non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which has also been linked to glyphosate.[85,253] Celiac disease trends over time match well with the increase in glyphosate usage on wheat crops.

You also want to be aware that most of the studies mentioned here are on the synthetic herbicide called Roundup, but glyphosate is a type of organophosphate, and there are many other herbicides on the market that are organophosphates that are equally as toxic and harmful to your health.

Organophosphate Pesticide

PURPOSE [of study]:

To study the possible potentiation of the carcinogenic effects of ultraviolet radiation associated with an organophosphate pesticide.

The American Cancer Society estimated that, in 2007, more than one million cases of non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) – basal cells carcinoma (BCC) and spinocellular carcinoma (SCC) – and about 60.000 cases of melanoma (CM) would be associated to ultraviolet radiation (UVR)1.

Among the organophosphates, Folisuper(r) (parationa- metílica): O,O- dimethyl O- 4- nitrophenylphosphorothioate (molecular formula C8H10NO5PS) is the most used one, classified as extremely toxic. It has been considered in many pre carcinogenic studies as being very dangerous to the environment9. Organophosphates are highly soluble in lipids and they can be absorbed by the skin, either by ingestion or inhalation.

Solar radiation in known as a carcinogenic factor and pesticides are co-carcinogenic to the human body and has the skin as one of its main ways of absorption. This study aims at evaluate a causal link between this association and SC.

Phosmet (Insecticide)

Phosmet can still be purchased in the US.  Phosmet contains Mangenese, and has been used on Cattle in the UK to eradicate the Warble Fly; there is compelling evidence to implicate it in Mad Cow Disease .  In addition there is compelling evidence to suggest that Manganese, in excess, can cause the following conditions:  lack of focus, lack of critical thought, lower intelligence, memory problems, focus problems, irrational anger and thoughts, ADHD, ADD, Parkinson’s Disease, and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Fate in Humans and Animals

Rats given single doses of 23 to 35 mg/kg phosmet excreted greater than three quarters of the dose in urine, about fifteen percent in the feces. Less than three percent was found in body tissues after two days (1). Other figures show nearly eighty percent eliminated in the urine and twenty percent eliminated in the feces after three days (4).

Phosmet applied to a steer’s back was moderately absorbed and rapidly broken down in the blood to phthalamic and phthalic acids (3). Rat studies indicate that phosmet crosses the placenta (1). Phosmet also appeared in the milk of goats fed a single dose of 70 mg/kg. The level in the milk after eight hours was 0.38 mg/kg but after 24 hours and 48 hours none could be detected. Cows fed silage with an average residue level of 19 mg/kg for nearly two months showed no residues in the milk above the detection level of 0.01 mg/kg (2). Cattle fed dietary levels of 20 to 100 ppm showed no residues in the tissues at levels higher than 0.005 ppm (3).

Metabolic breakdown is primarily by hydrolytic pathways and the breakdown products are similar to those resulting from other organophosphate pesticides. The major metabolite is phthalamic acid with phthalic acid produced in smaller quantities (3).

Organophosphates, Manganese, Copper Deficiency and Madness

By doing a lot of research, I have come to the conclusion that organophosphate AND manganese with a lack of copper, are attacking the brains of humans by doing the following: rendering them unable to focus, having a lack of critical thought, lower intelligence, memory problems, focus problems, irrational anger and thoughts, ADHD, ADD, Parkinson’s Disease, and Alzheimer’s Disease (neurological disorders on the rise).

Please don’t think about CJD or Mad Cow Disease (see below), instead think about how everyone who is eating soy (high in manganese, and which is in almost everything we eat), who lacks copper, and is exposed to organophosphates (pesticides), is at risk.  Note that this is happening in the womb as well because many pregnant women consume soy products containing manganese, that can break the blood/brain barrier.  Manganese settles in the Basal Ganglia (deep in the brain), adversely affecting the neurotransmitter, Dopamine; destroying the child before it is even born.  Also, mothers are feeding their infants soy formulas that contains as much as 200 times the amount of manganase found in breast milk.

I have sent a lot of information around about the dangers of soy; the most outspoken doctor is Dr. Mercola.

Not only are we at danger from eating soy products (which are full of manganese from the soil), we are at danger from organophosphates that are sprayed on our crops, and sprayed by Mosquito Abatement Districts for West Nile Virus, without the true understanding of the public, and most times not even having received notice to stay inside and close their windows in spring and summer when the spraying occurs.

Finally, I am hoping there are enough people reading this who will understand the seriousness of what is happening.  That is, that a biological weapon is being used against us.

Cover-up: Insecticide Causes Mad Cows, BSE, and CJD


All this is fully consistent with the Purdey hypothesis. These manganese-tipped prions could be the principal cause of the neurological degeneration seen in BSE. But manganese is only the bullet — organophosphate insecticide is the high-velocity gun. It fires manganese into the brain by depleting copper which the manganese then replaces.

Brown showed how prion protein bonds benignly with copper, but lethally with manganese. Even natural variations in relative environmental availability of manganese versus copper can trigger prion degradation. Chickens notoriously excrete most of the supplements fed to them — including manganese. And their manganese-rich excreta have been blended into cattle feed in the UK.

The pharmaceutical industry has key motives to deny the chemical source of BSE and CJD, because a spotlight on chemicals would expose the role the insecticides in Alzheimer’s — another neurodegenerative disease. That might lead to claims which would dwarf those from BSE and CJD litigants. In fact, two leading brain researchers into CJD and Alzheimers have died in suspicious circumstances in recent years.

His greater concern is that some lotions for scabies and head lice are now priming children and adults for CJD and Alzheimers in later life, and that manganese in unleaded petrol may prove as deadly as the lead it replaced.

Speaking from his rural English Somerset farm — as plans forge ahead for the European cattle cull, Purdey asks: “Why does CJD degeneration in humans begin in the retina, and why are CJD disease clusters found in high altitude locations?”

The question is rhetorical, and Purdey has an eye-opening answer. He argues that the prion molecule acts as a shock-adsorber of damaging energy from ultraviolet rays and other oxidizing agents.

Once this prion defence system is rendered ineffective by organophosphates, these oxidizing effects have an unmediated impact on tissues. Eventually, UV radiation damages the retina and oxidative stress destroys the brain tissues of CJD patients. This theory would expect to find higher CJD incidence in mountain regions — where UV radiation levels are elevated. That prediction holds true.

What Alzheimer’s Disease, Mad Cow Disease, and CJD have in common, is abnormal brain proteins and a putative link to organophosphates. Other neurodegenerative diseases and even Gulf War syndrome among returning veterans has been attributed, in part to the insecticide. But the sidelined scientists’ suspicions are still largely ignored.

If organophosphates are indeed the causal factor in BSE and nvCJD, the agrochemical giants such as Monsanto, Syngenta, and Aventis have more to fear than litigation. As the toxic effects and persistence of organochlorine pesticides became known, the agrochemical industry shifted to organophosphates, which represent the majority of insecticides and herbicides in use today. They are the underpinning of highly mechanized, pesticidal agriculture, which is used to grow more than 90% of U.S. produce. Most non-organic produce today has measurable residues of organophosphate pesticides. Evidence of danger of these widely-used chemicals is a serious threat to a cornerstone of U.S. agribusiness.
