      Dr. Edward Howell died 1988 aged 90

      We talked about enzymes in "chat". This is for the guy who asked what book I refered to. It is:

      Food Enzymes Health and Longevity. by Dr Edward Howell.

      published by LOTUS PRESS
      Twin Lakes,Wisconsin.

      below is a short Youtube on enzymes.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_CN...e_gdata_player
      (2:43) 970 views

      In the "Show More"

      Dr. Edward Howell studied what a bad diet can do to the pancreas, the organ that produces most of our digestive enzymes.

      He looked at the results of 12 different studies involving eight researchers and 370 animals.

      He found that the animals fed a diet of cooked food had a pancreas weight three times greater than the rats that ate a raw food diet.

      They were working their pancreases to death.

      Compare it to an enlarged heart. Poor circulation and blocked blood vessels can force the heart a muscle to work so hard it becomes oversized.

      Likewise, the animals in this study developed an enlarged pancreas trying desperately to produce the enzymes they werent getting in their diet.

      The poor pancreas got bigger trying to handle all the work it had to do. Thats not healthy. Its a huge strain. The pancreas is a vital organ. When your pancreas gives out, your number is up.

      Erm, pretty sure animals are supposed to make their own enzymes.

      Cooking will denature most proteins yes, but are you not aware that stomachs are filled with potent acid also designed to destroy proteins?

      Thank you Xei for replying

      Preface by author Edward Howell

      In the year 1934, I prepared a short manuscript entitled, "Are Food Enzymes Important in Digestion and Metabolism?" and forwarded a copy to Professor H. C. Sherman, Columbia University, and another copy to Professor W. H. Howell, Johns Hopkins University, [b]for comment and criticism.

      Since the concept was entirely new, it was deemed desirable competent guidance.

      In the intervening years, I have recieved many valuable suggestions from specialists in the several sciences bearing on the subject.

      The present manuscript was written in the year 1939 and embodies some of the literature up to that time. Material not included in the present writting as well as data accumulated since 1939 will, it is hoped, be published subsequently.


      Since the subject is new, it is not to be expected that the present effort can be anything more than a mere preamble to a more matured and extended compilation.

      I seek the help of those qualified to judge in pointing out to me by correspondence any errors of fact or logic that may appear in this work.


      It is hoped that, because of the novelty of the food enzyme concept, the bold approach to the problem will be tolerated and recognized as necessary to stimulate the interest and development which the matter merits, and that minor errors of logic or fact may be excusable because of the urgency of formulating a panoramic presentation of the subject.

      Edward Howell

      Chicago, Illinois.
      February 28, 1946

      OMG I can post

      Xei

      I not smart enough to argue. but this dead guy excites me so here is more of what he said about enzymes:. I posted it to my dream journal because I couldent post it here... till you replied. so here is what I posted to my dj:

      can't post anywhere. I have been trying fore houres. looks like i can only post in my dream journal.

      Oh ... bugger it. It is less than 10% of the book so here is the interview:

      Page 17

      Question (Q1):

      What are enzymes?

      Dr. Edward Howell

      Enzymes are substances which make life possible. They are needed for every chemical reaction that occurs in our body. Without enzymes, no activity at all would take place. Neither vitamins, minerals or hormones can do any work without enzymes.

      Think of it this way: Enzymes are the "labor force that builds your body just like construction workers are the labor force that builds your house. You may have all the necessary building materials and lumber, but to build a house you need workers, which represent the vital life elements.

      Similarly, you may have all the nutrients - vitamina, proteins, minerals, etc., for your body, but you still need the enzymes - the life element - to keep the body alive and well.

      Q2:

      Are enzymes then just like chemical catalysys which speed up various reactions?

      Dr. Edward Howell:

      No. Enzymes are much more than catalysts.

      Catalysts are only inert substances. They possess none of the life energy we find in enzymes. For instance, enzymes give off a kind of radiation when they work. That is not true of catalysts. In addition, although enzymes contain proteins - and some vitamins - the activity factor of enzymes has never been synthesized.

      Moreover, there is no combination of proteins or any combination of amino acids or any other substance which will give enzyme activity. There are proteins present in enzymes. However, they serve only as carriers of the enzyme activity factors.

      Therefore, we can say that enzymes consist of protien carriers charged with energy factors just as a battery consists of metallic plates charged with electrical energy.

      page 18

      (Q3):

      Where do the enzymes in our bodies come from?

      Dr. Edward Howell:

      It seems we inherit a certain enzyme potential at birth.

      This limited supply of activity factors of life force must last us a lifetime. It's just as if you inherited a certain amount of money. If the movement is all one way - all spending and no income you will run out of money.

      Likewise, the faster you use up your supply of enzyme activity, the quicker you will run out. Experiments at various universities have shown that, regardless of the species, the faster the metabolic rate, the shorter the life-span.

      Other things being equal, you live as long as your body has enzyme activity factors to make enzymes from. When it gets to the point that you can't make certain enzymes, then your life ends.

      (Q4): later.

      That's all completely rubbish, trust me.

      There are plenty of people with biological education here on DV (nina for instance), ask them if you need more confirmation.

      I have Type 2 Diabetes and for over three years I suffer terribly with Diabetic Neuropathy in my feet and legs. If you or nina can help me I would be deeply gratefull. I wake tense and in pain which is probably why I cant LD.

      So if you have any ideas I am very open to listening to them.

      This 24/7 pain is no joke, Xei.

      to continue:. [b] (Q4):[b]

      Do people do anything which causes them to waste their limited enzyme supply?

      Dr. Edward Howell

      Yes. Just about every single person eats a diet of mainly cooked food. Keep in mind that whenever a food is heated at 212 degrees, the enzymes are 100% destroyed.

      If enzymes wete in the food we eat, they would do some or even a considerable part of the work of digestion by themselves.

      However,

      when you eat cooked, enzyme-free food, this forces the body itself to make the enzymes needed for digestion.

      This depletes the bodies limited enzyme capacity.

      Google and find a diabetes forum? I'm sure plenty of people will help you. Hocus pocus won't.

      I appreciate your replies Xei cos, as you know, I'm not replied-to, much.

      (Q5):

      How serious is this strain on our enzyme "bank" caused by diets of mostly cooked food?

      Dr. Edward Howell

      I believe it's one of the paramount causes of premature aging and early death. I also believe it's the underlying cause of almost all degenerative disease.

      To begin with, if the body is overburdened to supply many enzymes to tje saliva, gastric juice, pancreatic juice and intestinal juice, then it must curtail the production of enzymes for other purposes. If this occures, then who can the body also make enough enzymes to run the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs muscles and other organs and tissues?

      This "stealing" of enzymes from other parts of the body to service the digestive tract sets up a competition for enzymes among the various organ systems and tissues of the body.

      The resulting metabolic dislocations may be the direct cause of cancer, coronary disease, diabetes, and many other chronic incurable diseases.

      This state of enzyme deficiency stress exists in the majority of persons in the civilized, enzyme-free diet.

      Well, I will stop ignoring folk. I didn't realise I was ignoring folk, sorry.

      (Q6)

      Did human disease begin when man started cooking his food?

      Dr. Edward Howell

      That is what the evidence indicates.

      For example, the Neanderthal Man of 50,000 years ago used fire extensively in his cooking. He lived in caves and ate mostly roasted meat from the continuous fires which warmed the caves. These statements are documented by scientific evidence in my published and unpublished works.

      From fossil evidence, we know that Neanderthal Man suffered from fully-developed crippling arthritis.

      It's possible that the Neaderthal Man also had diabetes or cancer or kidney disease and so forth. However, well never know since all soft tissue have disappeared without a trace.

      Incidentally,

      another inhabitant of the cave was the cave bear.

      This creature protected the Neanderthal Man from the cave tiger, who also wanted the protection of the cave to avoid the frigid weather.

      The Cave Bear, according to paleontologists, was a partially domesticated animal and most likely lived on the same roasted meat that the cave man ate.

      Like the cave man, the cave bear also suffered from chronic, deforming arthritis.

      Q8 Dr Ed Howell (2nd thread)

      (Q 7):

      Isn't it possible that cold weather, not cooked food, was responsible for the arthritis of the Neanderthal Man?

      Dr. Edward Howell

      No,

      I don't think weather had much to do with it. For example, consider the primitive Eskimo

      He lived in an environment just as frigid as that of the Neanderthal Man.

      and yet

      the Eskimo never suffered from arthritis and other chronic diseases.

      However,

      the Eskimo ate large amounts of raw food. The meat he ate was only slightly heated and was raw in the center.

      Therefore,

      the Eskimo received a large quantity of food enzymes with every meal.

      In fact, the word Eskimo itself comes from an Indian expression which means "He who eats it raw."

      Incidentally,

      there is no tradition of medicine men amoung the Eskimo people.

      But

      among groups like the North American Indian, who ate cooked food extensively, the medicine man had a prominent position in the tribe.

      Q8 later

      I can't reply to threads but I can start new threads and link to already started threads so the thread with Q 1 to 6 is here:

      (Q 8*)

      What evidence is there that human beings suffer from food enzyme deficiency?

      Dr. Edward Howell

      There's somuch evidence that I can only briefly summarize a small fraction of it. Over the last 40 years, I have collected thousands of scientific documents to substantiate my theories.

      To begin with, human beings have the lowest levels of starch digesting enzymes in their blood of any creature. We also have the highest of these enzymes in the urine, meaning that they are being used up faster.

      There's other evidence showing that these low enzyme levels are not due to a peculiarity of our species. Instead, they are due to the large amounts of cooked starch we eat.

      Also,

      we know that decreased enzyme levels are found in a number of chronic ailments, such as allergies, skin disease, and even serious diseases like diabetes and cancer.

      In addition,

      incriminating evidence indicates that cooked, enzyme-free diets contribute to a pathological over-enlargement of the PITUITARY gland. which regulates the other glands.

      Furthermore,

      there is documented research showing that almost 100% of the people over 50, dying from accidental causes were found to have defective pituitary glands.
