Dr. Thompson is a obstetrician and gynecologist working in Alaska. The main points from this book are as follows: Bones are not made of calcium, they are made of minerals. Calcium is used to harden cement. Excessive consumption of calcium over time leads to the stiffening and then hardening of all of our tissues. The body is 70% water and 30% minerals. Therefore, food must provide us with the most amount of minerals as possible. Unrefined sea and rock salt contain the 89 minerals needed by the body in exactly the right proportions. Foods must be eaten in their whole, natural form in order to be well digested and their nutrients fully absorbed. You are welcome to read my post Minerals and bones, calcium and heart attacks:
