Are normal metabolic processes poisonous? (Are mitochondria demons possessing your cells?)

  • Dr. Carl Freestone (who is one of my favorite people) wrote:

    I’m reading an article on free radicals and thought this was informative.

    “free radicals are produced when we’re exposed to harmful things like radiation or too much sunlight or cigarette smoke, and then they go to work invading all parts of our bodies.

    Some of these free radicals do good, like combating bacteria. Other free radicals become harmful, causing disease and breaking down our DNA and protein, a process which causes aging.”

    JR replied:

    I find those kinds of quotations to be “hysterical.” For example, to use a term like “invading” is odd. The idea of a “conscious entities that invade” is basically what I call the demonic possession model of disease (or the “demon worship” model of medicine).

    For instance, cancer is not a living entity or organism. It is a diagnostic label for a set of symptoms.

    Likewise, scurvy does not “invade” different parts of the body because scurvy is not a living entity. It is a label for the natural effects of having a lot of other nutrients but not Vitamin C.

    To say that scurvy (or cancer) invades an organ is like saying that “an empty gas tank has invaded your automobile, causing it to stop working.” The naive and unscientific use of language is very prevalent in mainstream medicine and “mainstream science,” which has rather little scientific merit in many cases. (However, the demonic possession model promoted in mainstream science is quite effective as psychological warfare… if that is the intent.)

  • J R Fibonacci Hunn As for free radicals, here is a little about them:

    “Free radicals are generated largely during the production of ATP in mitochondria.” In other words, they are totally normal.

    Here is what they are (generally speaking):

  • any molecule that has an unpaired electron in an outer electron shell, which means they are very electromagnetically powerful in “pulling” a single electron from other molecules.


    “An unstable molecule that causes oxidative damage by stealing electrons from surrounding molecules, thereby disrupting activity in the body’s cells. (Oxygen is a stable diradical, but most other free radicals are unstable and react readily with other molecules.)”

  • J R Fibonacci Hunn More: (not that the original author put the word “attacked” in quotes the second time:)

    “Generally, free radicals attack the nearest stable molecule, “stealing” its electron. When the “attacked” molecule loses its electron, it becomes a free radical itself, beginning a chain reaction. Once the process is started, it can cascade, finally resulting in the disruption of a living cell. “

  • J R Fibonacci Hunn Here is how a healthy organism “neutralizes” them: through a single electron, which can be taken by “sacrificing” a type of molecule called an “anti-oxidant” …or which can simply flow directly from the earth electromagnetically, resulting in an ionized (charged) molecule with that extra electron giving the molecule a slightly negative charge.
  • J R Fibonacci Hunn So, when there is an abundance of electrons in a tissue or cell, which is also known as a slightly negative voltage or a slight alkalinity, then the totally normal and even essential process of mitochondria producing free radicals has no disruptive effect. However, free radicals in an environment of acidic pH / positive electromagnetic charge (such as what results from the chronic overbreathing that is prevalent in civilized populations but is extremely easy to alter) will result in oxygenation (“aging”)… as in combustion… as in “stealing electrons” in ways that leads to reactions with O2 molecules… as in “burning” or inflammation.

    All of the hysterical paranoia about something like eating meat in regard to pH is scientifically preposterous (to the best of my knowledge). You can’t have so many people living to 90 or 120 in pre-industrial communities (including heavy smokers and life-long meat-eaters) if free radicals themselves are a problem. They are not a problem when sufficient electrons (grounding) is present.

    However, pumping paranoia and hysteria about free radicals is a great way to market some product. In fact, the huge list of symptoms that correspond to overbreathing do not require any product to remedy if someone simply alters their breathing.

    It is not a nutritional issue. Altering diet won’t stop the massive damage of overbreathing.

    When overbreathing is present, lots of other “normally inconsequential” conditions can become “medical complications.” What is the core? Breathing properly so that concentrations of O2 and CO2 are “right” in the bloodstream.

    In something like fish that do not breath, the issue is a bit different, but the fish still have mitochondria that still produce free radicals. Even plants produce substances that have an unpaired electron in the outer shell. It is a normal part of biochemistry.

    So, the idea that free radicals are poisonous is similar to the idea that cholesterol is poisonous. That is nonsense. Every healthy liver on this planet produces cholesterol and a lot of it.

  • Likewise, saturated fat is not poisonous. If it was, why would there be so much of it in the milk produced by mammalian mothers.

    One “problem” with mainstream medicine is the total lack of scientific merit in so many popular marketing campaigns. On the other hand, as a business, mainstream medicine is very lucrative, so accuracy and effectiveness are secondary issues to profitability.
