I have never had such a young crowd here. This is a breath of fresh air to meet younger people this time. We will start off by talking about the human system. You start the digestive process in the mouth. And predominantly what we have in the mouth is not enzymes. We have [inaudible] enzymes which a horse has which breaks down into a carbohydrate. 98 percent of what is in the saliva is bacteria. It is putrefactive bacteria, which means acidic bacteria which is meant to digest animal tissue, animal cells. We have more bacteria in the mouth than dogs and cats. [inaudible]
And that starts the digestive process. You swallow – and what do we have in the stomach? Acidic bacteria to break down animal tissue again. … hydrochloric acid. The acids that you will find in a cow or any herbivore’s system is an anaerobic bacteria which breaks down vegetation.. And as we move down into lower part of the stomach, we have bile. Bile is suited for animal fats, not for vegetation, not for vegetable oils. You don’t break those down – 2 percent at best. We can digest 100 percent of animal fats. So, as we move into the colon, we continue to secrete small amounts of hydrochloric acid and bile to continue the digestion of proteins and fats. Now that is only 10 percent at best of your digestive process. 90 percent of that is bacteria. We have all sorts of bacteria. We have 150 bacterial genes to every one human gene.We are not even one percent human. We are bacteria; our entire body is 150 bacterial genes to one human gene. That means that we rely on bacteria for every process. including digestion.
So the FDA’s nonsense and the medical profession’s nonsense about bacteria is just the opposite of the stance you want to take. The more bacteria in your feed, the better. Tribes know this. Turks. Have you ever been to Turkey? They [inaudible]. I mean they just [inaudible] on the slab of beef that they were hanging a quarter side with gangrene. And they let the gangrene eat into it for about 3 weeks – sometimes a little less, sometimes a little longer, depending on the weather. And then they scrape the fungus on the outside, the spores, because that can make them vomit and have diarrhea. And when they eat all that meat has been pre-digested and tenderized by gangrene. So, everything you have been taught about bacteria, fungus and all that, [inaudible], parasites – no matter what it is – it is all wrong. It is the exact opposite. Everything that you hear from the medical profession, 99 times out of 100, if you do the opposite of what they say , you will be right. It is that sad.
When I was a child, cancer was one in a thousand. Now it is 1 in 3 in females and 1 in 2 in males. The medical profession and the government health department obviously don’t know what they are talking about because they are saying ‘do this, do this for health’ and none of us are getting healthier; people are getting sicker. So we need to avoid that. So, all this bacteria in the intestines is doing the digestion. We eat feces and urine and sweat from bacteria. That is our food. They break down the food, they eat it, they pass fecal matter, their urine, their sweat – just like we do. And that is our food. And it is to absorb into the lacteal system, which is a fine-webbed network attached to all of the intestinal tract that leads to the lymphatic system. It is called the lacteal system because no matter what those bacteria break down, it turns into the exact color of milk.
Then the lymphatic system takes it, breaks it down further and makes it into a translucent milky type substance that feeds the entire body. As we move to the colon, we find other putrified bacteria that are very different from those in the small intestine. And they are responsible for breaking down the proteins and fats into finite molecules that feed the brain and the nervous system.
So, depression is a very easy thing to get rid of. You eat rotten meat, you eat rotten eggs. You eat something that is already pre-digested because your body can’t do it. If you are anxious, that is a matter of exercise. It means you are producing a lot of hormones for physical activity and you are not expressing them in activity. Therefore you [inaudible] anxiety. And that doesn’t make for good relationships or a happy life. So, exercise if you have anxiety. For depression, you eat pre-digested meat or dairy or eggs or something like that. There are tribes all over the world that do it. There are tribes that are without meat sources so they eat insects. They also eat fecal matter from the buffalo or horses or whatever they have.
Why do they do this? Because the animal has pre-digested everything that is released in the fecal matter. And cows and horses and goats – they still only digest 72 percent of everything they eat. …average. 72 percent of everything they eat. They may discard 59 percent of it, 52 percent of it if they are eating hay instead of fresh grasses. That is pre-digested. So they eat it and they are able to break down vegetation only because it has been pre-broken down by the animals. So there is nothing taboo about anything that is in the medical profession says is taboo. It is an absurdity. I have lived with many tribes, many primitive tribes and let me tell you: they don’t wash their hands, they don’t have soap, they go pooping and wiping their butt in the dirt.
