Minerals are essential for good health. The body utilizes over 80 minerals for maximum function. Because our plants
and soils are so nutrient depleted, even if we eat the healthiest foods, we are not getting all the minerals we need.
Evidence of mineral malnutrition are various minor and serious health conditions such as energy loss, premature
aging, diminished senses, and degenerative diseases like osteoporosis, heart disease, and cancer. In many cases, these
could be prevented with proper mineral supplementation. The more you learn about the benefits of minerals, the more
you will be able to take charge of your own health!
Every living cell depends on minerals for proper structure and function. Minerals are needed for the formation of blood
and bones, the proper composition of body fluids, healthy nerve function, proper operation of the cardiovascular system,
among others. Like vitamins, minerals function as coenzymes, enabling the body to perform its functions including energy
production, growth and healing. Because all enzyme activities involve minerals, they are essential for the proper utilization
of vitamins and other nutrients. Nutritionally, minerals are grouped into two categories: bulk or essential minerals, also called
macrominerals, and trace minerals or microminerals. Macrominerals such as calcium and magnesium are needed by the body
in larger amounts. Although only minute quantities of trace minerals are needed, they are nevertheless important for good
health. Microminerals include boron, chromium, iron, zinc, and many others.
Three basic classifications of minerals exist. They are "metallic minerals," "chelated minerals," and " minerals."
Metallic minerals are found in their pure elemental form or as salts such as sodium chloride and zinc sulfate. They are the
most commonly used form in nutritional supplements, esspecially for the essential minerals, because larger amounts are
indicated. They are generally the least expensive form of minerals but their primary disadvantage is that their degree of
absorption is the least of all three forms. Although they have their place, metallic minerals do not represent the full spectrum
of all the trace minerals that are known to be of value in human nutrition.
Chelated minerals are the next step up the ladder in so far as the body's ability to assimilate. The term "chelate" originates
from a Greek word that means "claw." In this process, be it either in the laboratory or in nature itself, a metallic mineral is
"chelated" with an amino acid. The amino acid actually surrounds the metallic mineral like a claw and thereby helps to solubilize
it, making the "mineral chelate" more bioavailable or useful to the body. Examples of chelated minerals are the magnesium
aspartate (magnesium chelated with the natural aspartic acid) and chromium picolinate (chromium chelated with picolinic acid).
In many cases, chelated minerals are about 40% more efficient in regards to absorption and assimilation into the body than
minerals are those that occur in nature in the colloid state. That is, they are minute particles that either are or can be
easily dispersed in a medium such as water. In that they are made up of such small particles, there is a major increase in surface
area giving them greater exposure to the liquid or solvent they are to be distributed in. This results in increased solubility,
bioavailability, absorption, and usefulness to the body. Plant-derived minerals provide the best of all forms of minerals
not only because of this increased solubility but also because they are associated with natural plant tissue. This gives them all the
advantages of chelated and metallic minerals and more!
CREATION, CONTENT AND EFFECT OF SOIL & MINERALS
note: "humic shale" is an inappropriate label for what is technically know as polyfloramin. Soil
is the commercial term and will be used throughout this article. Extensive quotes are used from 'Rare Earths,
Forbidden Cures" by Dr. Joel Wallach.
CREATION of Soil and Minerals:
Soil originated from plants some 75 million years ago, those lush tropical plants took up the 60
plus metallic minerals available to them from a fertile soil that had as many as 84 minerals.
A volcanic eruption covered these mineral rich forests with a thin layer of mud and ash, thick enough to
create an air-tight "vault" and dried or dessicated the plants into a deep accumulation.
The entombed Soil never fossilized or petrified, in other words they never become rocks.
soil can be used as an excellent soil conditioner for organic gardens, farms and ranches as it supplies a rich
source of humus and no less than 60 plant derived minerals.

# Bar graph 3 - Bio electonic test, by Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp, to be
inserted here soon.
BIO-ELECTRONIC TEST done by Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp, well known Biophysicist and professor at the
Kaiserlautern University in Germany. (Transcript of letter from Dr. Gottfried Lange of Elmshorn,
Germany, dated January 18, 1992, describing the protocol used in the test done on the product, T.J.Clark
All living organisms emit certain electromagnetic waves. If they are in a healthy condition, they emit
more. If not, they emit less. This phenomena is is common to all forms of cells. This electromagnetic
emission is called biophotons.
In these tests "acetabularia mediterranea", a certain very sensitive algae from the Mediterranean Sea is
used. This algae is so sensitive to ecological influences that there are scarcely any of these algae left
in the Mediterranean.
The test, using this form of algae, is a scientifically recognized method of determining whether or not a
substance is toxic, or to what degree a substance is beneficial to cells. The test was carried out by one
of the world's leading biophysicists, Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp.
The letter from Dr. Popp announcing the results of the test, congragulates Dr. Lange on the excellence of
the product. A summary of the results is shown in the accompanying graph and explained below.
1/ The first two bars of the graph show the photon emission of the cells which had an optimum vitamin
nutrient solution, called "100%V*", given to them. The green bar measures the photon emission at the start
of the test. The following yellow bar shows the photon emission after a period of three days without
additional nutrients given to them.
2/ The second set of two bars show the photon emission of cells given only a 10% V nutrient, and after the
three day period, are termed as cells "under great stress", and without further nutrients would die.
3/ The third set of two bars were again only given the 10% V solution, but a 1.4ul**(micro liter) amount of
the T.J. Clark Minerals was added to the solution. A significant improvement is shown, even though there was
only a 10% V nutrient given.
4/ In the fourth set of two bars, again only a 10%V solution was added and the amount of Clark's minerals
was reduced to only .14ul. The improvement was even greater, showing that vitamin utilization is greatly
enhanced with only small amounts of the product.
5/ The vitamin withdrawal is fully compensated for after the three day period. This was considered a very
significant result, and corresponds with the many testimonies that have been observed with users of the
product over the last 70 years.

COLLOIDS: WHAT ARE THEY?
Chemistry's Miraculous Colloids/ Condensed from the Rockefeller Center Oct. 31, 1935
Reprinted from Readers Digest Magazine 1936
by KENNETH ANDREWS
A group of executives sat tense and silent in an office in the RCA Building in New York City. They stared
with incredulous eyes at a purple orchid. A short time before it had been rescued from a pile of debris,
a withered, yellowed thing, dead. Now the petals were fresh and crisp, its colors vivid. It was blooming
with new life, and it would continue to do so for 16 or 17 days!
Dr. Frederick S. Macy, one of the country's outstanding bacteriologists, had added a teaspoonful of an
amber-tinted liquid to the quart of water in the bottle which held the flower. Here was striking indication
of the mysteries that lie ahead in that comparatively unexplored realm of science know as chemistry.
It was one of innumerable experiments these gentleman had been witnessing for a year or more, on behalf of
their internationally known pharmaceutical comany. A few days later they signed an 18-year contract for the
rights to a solution similar to the one in Dr. Macy's Bottle. They will invest more than $2,000,000.00 a year
in it from now on.
To gain a working conception of what chemistry is, consider that living tissues and organs are
simply great masses fo cells- billions of them. The energy, the very life-force of these cells, is obtained
from certain minerals and metals, among them iron, iodine, manganese, copper. There are some 32, with traces of
as many others, in the human body. chemistry is the science which converts those elements into
particles so minute that they can be utilized by living cells.
Normally, nature supplies the cells with these elements in their form. Science has now learned to
produce these colloids in the laboratory. "Lately, life has been prolonged by colloid action," says Dr. Macy,"
and better knowledge of the subject will certainly result in prolonging the normal term of existence." In the
case of the apparently dead orchid, copper in form was needed to restore the proper balance of the
mineral and metals that comprised the life cells of the flower. Once that balance was restored, the cells began
to function and the orchid lived again.
In the Laboratories of America they have a motion picture which is as weird as any thing ever shown
on a screen- a movie of a headache. The actors are the nerves in a human head, magnified millions of times.
You see the headache. Those nerve endings are tangled, twisting, writhing. Then you see the colloids enter.
These rescuers, smaller than the blood corpuscles themselves, march straight to the spot where there is an
unbalance of the vital metals. You see those laboratory-prepared colloids restore normalcy there at the seat
of the trouble. Then you see the nerves cease their twisting, relax, and assume their proper position.
Dr. Steinmetz, the ewizard of electricity, devised a method of utilizing colloids in the treatment of sinus
trouble. The Bide-a-Wee Home, New York's famous hospital for cats and dogs, can cure mange in three days,
where it used to take three months. A large Midwestern city was freed from the scourge of goiter when
iodine was added to the water supply. A famous institution for the treatment of alcoholism is experimenting
with a solution which apparently not only overcomes the effects of excessive drinking but removes
the craving as well. Such treatment consists of the introduction of metals-gold and iodine, in the case of
alcoholism-which correct the unbalance caused by alcoholic poisons.
The effect of colloids is explainable in part by electric action. Sick and dead and broken down cells are
attracted to the colloids by electro-magnetic force, as iron filings are attracted to a magnet. The colloids
carry those decayed or poisonous substances into the blood stream, and they are eliminated, the system meanwhile
adapting what it needs of the colloids.
A simple illustration will suggest the immense powers that are being unsealed. Suppose we have a cube of iron
measuring an inch on each edge. The total surface would be six square inches. The electrical charge is on the
surface; therefore, the greater the surface the greater the charge; and if we divide the cube of iron into
smaller pieces we increase the surface areas. By chemistry that iron cube can be divided into particles
so minute that they are invisible, hence instead of six square inches of surface emanating electric energy, we
have something like 127 acres.
In form iodine, for example, is one of the elements essential to the well-being of human cells. Yet if
you should drink as much as two or three grains of free iodine, it would kill you. Dr. Macy, when explaining this,
held up an eight ounce cup full of iodine. "There," he said, "is the equivalent of 740 grains of free
iodine -- enough to kill 300 men." And he drank it. In that form iodine is not only harmless but beneficial. The
same is true of arsenic and other deadly poisons.
Chemistry was evolved by David Graham, a British chemist, 50 years ago, but only recently has it been
realized even by scientists what an enormous influence it is destined to have in medicine, agriculture, industry.
"We have television now," one of the world's greatest scholars said recently. "There is, as I see it, just one
great development left for our time. That is in the understanding of metals. It is the 'Fourth Estate
of Matter,' the other three being land, water, and air."
Says Dr. Macy: "The study of these phenomena constitutes the road to the ultimate in human knowledge.
FACTS About MINERALS
1/ 99 Percent of the American population is deficient in minerals. A marked deficiency in any important mineral
will result in disease.
2/ The mammalian body is limited in its ability to chelate minersals from elements in nature. However, plants
chelate minerals for us allowing proper absorption and assimilation at the cell level. Mineral efficiency is
enhanced by covalent minerals as outlined on the Mineral Wheel by Dr. Paul Eck.

blood = 572 ml plasma + 428 ml red cells; calculated values are enclosed in brackets.
Atoms/red cells were calculated assuming there are 1.26 x 10-13 red cells per l of packed cells; hence
atoms/red cell = 4.75 x 10-7 x m/A

4/ All body processes depend on the action of minerals. All nutrients require minerals for processing and
5/ Minerals are more important than vitamins.
Vitamins are required for every biochemical activity of the body.
Vitamins require minerals to enable their functions.
Minerals catalyse and enable enzymes to function.
Glandular hormone secretions are dependent upon mineral stimulation.
PH of the tissue fluid is controlled by minerals.
Pumping Action of the cell, allowing transfer of cell nutrients and waste,
is controlled by minerals.
One mineral deficiency is enough to disrupt the entire body balance.
Mineral supplementation is critical to support body functions and maintain or
These facts about minerals apply to plants, animals and man to differing degrees. In all forms of organic
life minerals are essential.
SOME SYMPTOMS OF MINERAL DEFICIENCIES IN PLANTS
NITROGEN- Plants develop small, pale-yellow leaves, sometimes with brown edges. Growth is stunted. In bad
cases, the plant looks really puny. Nitrogen is a "mobile" element. Symptoms start on older (lower) leaves
because plants transfer nitrogen to new, actively growing leaves.
PHOSPHORUS- Deficient plants are stunted. Foliage can turn deep green, often with a purplish cast, although
cold weather can also bring on a purple color. Symptoms appear first on older leaves, which eventually turn
brown and die. Leaves drop early. Flowering may stop.
POTASSIUM- Symptoms affect mainly older leaves, which turn yellow from the margin inward and develop dead
spots. Leaves may curl under, look scorched. Stems weaken, fruit shrivels and roots may rot.
IRON- Leaves turn yellow between veins and may die from the edges inward. Otherwise, don't expect to see
leaf spots. Youngest leaves show symptoms first. As deficiency worsens, symptoms spread to veins, to entire
leaves, then plants die.
SULFUR- Entire plant, including leaf veins, turns yellow. May show up on youngest leaves first. Veins
usually lighter colored. Dead spots may develop. Plants are stunted, or their stems may be thin and stretched
as though reaching for light.
MAGNESIUM- Oldest leaves show symptoms first. Areas between leaf veins turn yellow while veins stay green.
Yellowed areas can die suddenly. White spots may appear, or leaves become thin, brittle, puckered or turn
bronze or purplish.
MANGANESE- Youngest leaves turn yellow between the veins. The smallest veins stay green. Creating a
checkerboard effect. Gray or tan spots develop in the yellow areas. Manganese is one of the micronutrients.
CALCIUM- Deficiencies first appear in actively growing parts of plants: youngest leaves and tips of stems
and roots. Leaves twist, look deformed, often with an upward "hook". Seedlings, young plants and roots die.
Fruit gets blossom-end rot.
SOIL, MINERALS, POLYFLORAMIN & ROCK DUST: THEIR EFFECT ON HEALTH & NUTRITION IN ORGANIC PLANTS, FARM ANIMALS & HUMANS
"Minerals in the soil control the metabolism of cells in plants, animals and man. All of life will be either healthy or unhealthy
according to the fertility of the soil." from 'Man the Unknown', 1912, Dr. Alexis Carrel, Nobel Prize winner.
Even earlier, in 1894, Julius Hensel, in his work on the subject, 'Bread from Stones', poignantly remarked that "Our most optimistic
expectations are no less than the realization of an old dream. What will fertilizing with rock dust accomplish? It will turn stones
into bread...make barren regions (fruitful) (and) feed the hungry."
Our own government admitted the true state of affairs as early as 1936 in U.S. Senate Document #264. "Did you know that most of us
today are suffering from certain dangerous diet deficiencies which cannot be remedied until the depleted soils from which our foods
come are brought back into proper mineral balance? 99% of the American people are deficient in these minerals, a marked deficiency
in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease. Lacking vitamins, the system can make some use of minerals,
but lacking minerals, vitamins are useless."
Does anyone wonder about the health of the nation? Does wellness come from a laboratory in the form of red and green pills? Can
removing a diseased organ change the health of the whole being? Will radiation or chemotherapy provide the critical missing elements

"Sick soils make for sick plants, and sick plants when consumed make for sick animals and people." says Eric Curlee, 'American
Survival Guide', June 96.
Because our soils are depleted of minerals so then all the foodstuffs grown on them are depleted also. When we eat depleted foods
day after day, week after week, month after month and year after year, then we also develop depleted bodies with serious mineral
deficiencies. These deficiencies cause starvation in our organs and tissues resulting in malfunctions and breakdowns called dis-ease.
Absurd, ridiculous, heresy, paranoid say many "educated" men. Yet many others agree that "There is no doubt that malnutrition is the
most important problem confronting mankind at the present time." says Dr. Melchior Dikkers, Professor of Biochemistry and Organic
Chemistry at Loyola University.
"Nearly all non-infectious diseases that plague mankind are of recent origin." from Dr. Joseph D. Weissman, Associate Professor at
UCLA College of Medicine.
Possibly the man who says it best, is Dr. William A. Albrecht, Chairman of the Department of Soils at the University of Missouri,
"A declining soil fertility,due to a lack of organic material, major elements, and trace minerals, is responsible for poor crops and
in turn for pathological conditions in animals fed deficient foods from such soils, and that mankind is no exception." Dr. Albrecht
goes further to unequivocally lay the blame, "N P K formulas, as legislated and enforced by State Departments of Agriculture, mean
malnutrition, attack by insects, bacteria and fungi, weed takeover, crop loss in dry weather, and general loss of mental acuity in t
he population, leading to degenerative metabolic disease and early death."
Incredible, pointed, damning indeed, but how true? Our world leaders concluded, in an obscure paragraph, in the Earth Summit Report
of 1992 from Rio Brazil that mineral depletion from soils over the last 100 years equals "74% in Africa, 76% in Asia, 55% in Australia,
72% in Europe, 76% in South America and in North America? 85%." Those are the amounts depleted not the amounts remaining.
The following conditions are not just causes of sick plants they are symptoms of sick soil. Parasitic insects which crawl, climb or
fly. Mold, fungi, virus or bacteria that prey on weak plants. Crowding out by hardier weeds. Crop failure due to radical weather or
extreme temperature shifts. Even extinction of Bees, Birds and other beneficial Insects and Creatures.
So...say the organic farmers. Why are you telling me? I use lime to balance the PH, introduce ladybugs, earthworms and micro-organisms
to re-establish life, provide organic matter for aeration and retention of moisture, treat my water with magnets and filters to aid
assimilation, rotate my crops and let the earth rest in the seventh year, use hydrogen peroxide to increase available oxygen for the
microbes, add "organic" nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus for lush green foliage.What else is there?
Well, I'm glad you asked. We know now that the human body, in fact all mammals, as well as plants, need minerals in their food supply
to survive in health. We know that these minerals ultimately come from the soil. We know also that the soil has been depleted. Does
organic compost, tillage of cover crops and addition of N P K provide the missing ingredients? Look at the facts. Over 100 years of
Organic farming practices has failed to slow the onslaught of degenerative disease. In fact very few people live to be 90, most do not
reach 79 and our venerable doctors usually do not even get to 58. However we know who does "live long and prosper" and we know what
does provide the missing ingredients.
In the landmark, epic, work 'Rare Earths, Forbidden Cures' by Dr. Joel Wallach on page 213 we learn that "The serendipitous irrigation
of their terraced fields with the common denominator of "Glacial Milk" from the mountains containing 60 or more minerals is the secret
of the five cultures who live to 120 to 140 years of age. Their terraced land, their "Glacial Milk" and their organic agriculture are
their whole life. Only they have been able to fulfil their genetic potentials for longevity -- and they have done it without the
"blessings of high-tech medicine, vaccines, antibiotics, steroids or transplants."
I would go further to point out that they don't use pesticides, fungicides, insecticides or farm chemicals of any kind whether organic or
We know, as Dr. Jerome Weisner, Science Counselor to John F. Kennedy,stated in 1963, that "Use of pesticides is more dangerous than atomic
His words are simply a deafening reverberation from those of Rachel Carson in her incisive work of 1962, 'Silent Spring', where she says
oh so loudly
"We are rightly appalled by the genetic effects of radiation...How then, could we be indifferent to the same effect from farm chemicals
used freely in the environment."
Few people know that these clear thinkers were simply expounding on the writings of Amerige Mosca, Italian Scientist and winner of the
Science Prize at the Brussels World Fair in 1958. He tried to stop the fire, which is now burning out of control, when he warned us that
"The damage resulting from nuclear radiation is the same as the damage resulting from the use of toxic genetic chemicals. The use of
fungicides of organic syntheses annually causes the same damage to present and future generations as atomic fallout from 14,500 atomic
bombs of the Hiroshima type (approximately 29 X 14 megaton hydrogen bombs)." Sadly, Mr. Mosca's full report was classified for 50 years
by the Italian Government.
"Every second approximately 30,000 particles of background radiation penetrate the average person's body." says Gary North, Phd., in
Fighting Chance-Ten Feet to Survival.
"Cancer is now the leading cause of childhood death until the age 14 and kills one person approximately every minute. How much of this
do you think is caused by radiation of the young and the unborn?" asks Lita Lee, Phd., from the Radiation Protection Manual, 1990.
"The human body must be protected from radioactive particles found in the air and contaminated food and water. A radioactive element is
structurally similar to its nonradioactive counterpart, differing only in the number of neutrons it contains. If you do not obtain sufficient
amounts of calcium, potassium and other nutrients in your diet, the body will absorb the radioactive elements that are similar in structure
to these nutrients.
Calcium - radioactive strontium 90
Potassium - radioactive cesium 137
Potassium iodide - radioactive iodine 131
from 'Prescription for Nutritional Healing' by James Balch, M.D., and Phylis Balch, C.N.C.
Back to our question, and the answer, about the missing ingredients.
"...the University of Vienna found that Schindeles product (rock dust) worked against radioactivity...Analysis under micropolariscope revealed
an alteration in the molecular and atomic lattice, which had an effect on ionized radioactive particles taken into the body." page 210,
Secrets of the Soil by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird.
Yes, it is unbelievable but apparently true. Not only does rock dust alter the molecular structure of plants and thereby the mammals who consume
such plants but actually has the capacity to defeat radioactive poisons in soil, plants, animals and man. Astounding! So what's the problem?
George Abermann, agronomist and engineer, puts it succintly in Secrets of the Soil, page 209. "If, and when, the idea of using massive amounts
of rock dust is adopted in official circles, it will be of no real importance whether it is ground from paragneiss, diabase, basalt, porphyry,
or certain other rocks, because all of them produce rock dust that works in similar ways. The only problem is to get the rock dust adopted in
official circles, and for that one needs a great push, most likely from on high."
From the Acid Rain destruction of the Balsams of the American Smokey Mountains, Sugar Maples of New England/Canada and the Black Forests of S.W.
Germany we go to East Europe.
"Statistical facts on the Czech sylvan (pertaining to trees) disaster, by Dr. Wolf Ochslies, illustrated how dire conditions have become. Of
all taxonomic (classifiable) groups of fauna, 60% of amphibians, 35% of mammals, and 30% of reptiles, birds and fish are currently threatened
with extinction. Almost all partridges in the country have vanished, along with 80% of the hares and nearly half of the pheasants." Page 201,
Secrets of the Soil.
Mr. George Abermann leave us this, "It's fantastic...by using rock dust there is no more need to plant young trees; thanks to its effects plenty
of new ones are growing spontaneously from seed."
There are other equally startling developments in the study of rock dust. Developments that date back almost to the turn of the century and that
are now being recognized for their magnitude.
With the discovery of Azomite (Montmorillonite clay) early in this century, in Northern Utah, by Rollin Anderson, a geological prospector, things
began to get really interesting. Did you ever try eating dirt? Come on now, didn't everybody as a child? Well, how about as an adult? Don't
worry, Rollin, your secret is safe with me! Rollin did put Azomite in the soil of his Garden. As detailed in Secrets of the Soil "the results
were extremely positive and nearly immediate."
Rollins discovery was being paralleled at that time by T.J. Clark, a pioneering cattle rancher and dog breeder in Southern Utah. With the help
of Soaring Eagle of the Paiute Indian tribe, T.J. unearthed the 'secret' of a 'fountain of health' that sprang from the ground. The 'secret' was
Polyfloramin. Sometimes called humic shale, and marketed as Soil, Polyforamin has proven itself over the last century as producing
results unheard of anywhere else. Some say actually restoring health in soil, plant, animal and man.
Polyfloramin/ Soil, is to rock dust what gold is to silver. The most basic mineral elements in Soil/Polyfloramin are entirely
organic in nature not at all metallic like rock dust. Because it is in the organic state, rather than elemental like rock dust, it is instantly
available, and assimilable by plants and mammals. No, I am not suggesting that we eat the Soil, but liquid solution passed through it
and then consumed by plant, animal and man has been shown to be absorbed directly into the circulatory system. The minerals contained in
Soil become instantaneously available. Soil applied directly to plants can begin to be assimilated within minutes after watering.
You can be sure that Plants provided with their proper food will indeed provide us with ours.
Dr. Wallach, in his book Rare Earths, tells us what is "Required daily, 60 essential elements, metals and minerals, 12 amino acids, 3 fatty acids,
16 vitamins." page 477.
The F D A tells us that we need their minimum recommended daily allowance (RDA's). Who are you to believe?
Senator William Proxmire, in a 'Let's Live' article in 1974, stated his own, if not the governments, position quite clearly. "At best the RDA's
are only a recommended allowance at antediluvian levels designed to prevent some terrible disease. At worst, they are based on conflicts of interest
and self serving views of certain portions of the food industry. Almost never are they provided at levels for optimum health and nutrition."
The truth is out and once more the most humble of professions can be lifted to the level of importance and respect that it deserves. However this
can only be if the farmer will take this truth and help it to grow into the magnificent source of life it once was.
No matter the condition, or level of degradation, of a plot of land if the prevailing conditions are addressed properly then there can be a complete
restoration of vitality of plant, animal and human living from it.
Herein lies our hope, that the keepers of the earth will choose life, and not death, this day while there is still time to mend our ways.
Polyfloramin, Soil, may well be the single most powerful tool we can choose to restore the elements in the soil that effect nutrition in
plants, animals and man.
