Okay, I am not at all saying everyone should run out and start loading up on Sulfur but I find this statement from PubMed absolutely astounding (and from the same article). Am I wrong here or has something fundamental to human health been completely overlooked?
Sulfur is the sixth most abundant macromineral in breast milk and the third most abundant mineral based on percentage of total body weight.
and then goes on to say …
Because the role of elemental sulfur in human nutrition has not been studied extensively, it is the purpose of this article to emphasize the importance of this element in humans and discuss the therapeutic applications of sulfur compounds in medicine.
So, we have PubMed saying we know almost nothing about the role of the third most abundant mineral in the human body yet they’ll tell you how important it is to have certain trace minerals in your body down to the 4th decimal point.
Sorry, I’m know I’ve really been on a rant on this topic for sometime now but I still cannot get over the statements above. What if all degenerative disease was linked to deficiency of these missing SAA’s (Sulfur based Amino Acids) Methionine, Cysteine, Cystine, Homocysteine, Homocystine, and Taurine? MSM also. In other words, is Fibromyalgia really a disease or simply a massive deficiency of what should be the third most abundant mineral in the human body?
I promise a new topic next time, this just had to be said. Why isn’t sulfur (or it’s SAA’s) listed on the back of all food items and or vitamins?
