AA amyloidosis resembles mad cow disease. A misfolded version of a protein converts normal proteins into abnormal ones, until large deposits of damaging protein build up in tissues -- the spleen and liver in the case of AA amyloidosis, the brain and central nervous system for mad cow disease.
AA amyloidosis is not caused by a bacteria or virus, but it can likely spread from animal to animal like an infectious disease. Biologists have had difficulty, however, figuring out how the disease moves from cat to cat.
Folks, cheetahs are one of my absolute favorite animals, probably for the same reason that Flash is my favorite comic book super hero. I am fascinated with speed, and that’s also one of the reasons I have been a runner for over 40 years.
It is such a miracle to see a cheetah engaged in a full-out sprint, and it amazes me every time I see them perform this magical feat, reaching speeds of up to 70 mph.
My strong suspicion that the primary reason why cheetahs are dying in captivity is that the zoo keepers are clueless about their nutritional requirements. They are likely focused on total calories, vitamins, minerals, fat and carbs, and are missing the most significant aspect of most wild animals diets.
They need RAW food.
Take away the raw food and you disrupt nearly every important biochemical pathway in their body -- an absolute prescription for disaster.
Unfortunately, American scientists and researchers are ignorant about this important aspect of health. However, many savvy German and European researchers are exploring this in the form of biophoton research which, in my eyes, is one of the most exciting areas of biomedical research.
Sunlight – Food for Your Biophoton Field
Sunlight is vital. Without the sun it is virtually impossible for most life forms to exist. I am sure you’ve noticed what a revitalizing effect sunlight has on your body and spirit, especially after a long winter, when you enjoy the first rays of the spring sun.
But you can absorb sun energy via your food as well as through your skin. We are in fact human photocells, whose ultimate biological nutrient is sunlight.
Dr. Johanna Budwig from Germany has stated that live foods are electron-rich, and act as high-powered electron donors and “solar resonance fields” in your body to attract, store, and conduct the sun's energy in your body. The greater your store of light energy, the greater the power your overall electromagnetic field, and consequently the more energy is available for healing and maintenance of optimal health.
What are Biophotons?
Stored sun energy finds its way into your cells via food in the form of minute particles of light. These light particles are called 'biophotons', which are the smallest physical units of light.
They contain important bio-information, which controls complex vital processes in your body. The biophotons have the power to order and regulate, and, in doing so, to elevate the organism – in this case, your physical body -- to a higher oscillation or order.
This is manifested as a feeling of vitality and well-being.
Every living organism emits biophotons or low-level luminescence (light with a wavelength between 200 and 800 nanometers). It is thought that the higher the level of light energy a cell emits, the greater its vitality and the potential for the transfer of that energy to the individual which consumes it.
The more light a food is able to store, the more nutritious it is.
Naturally grown fresh vegetables, for example, and sun-ripened fruits, are rich in light energy. The capacity to store biophotons is therefore a measure of the quality of your food.
So, What’s the Take-Home Message for You?
Eat MORE raw live food in your diet.
My personal goal is 85 percent. Unless I’m traveling, I am almost always over 50 percent, and typically around 85 percent. And yes, that includes animal proteins, as I am a protein type.
Not all raw foodists are vegetarians or vegans. I know eating raw meat sounds extreme, but it is my belief that, like the cheetah, that is the way we were designed to eat, and as long as you buy fresh authentically organic meat, and prepare it with care on a clean surface, it is perfectly safe to consume raw. If you veer very far away from that you are bound to have complications, just like the cheetahs in captivity.
