Question - You stated that minerals are neither
created or destroyed. Not true. Elements do transmute and form different elements.
A French scientist (Professor C. Louis Kervran: Member of the New York Academy
of Science and Director of Conferences of the Paris University) has written
a book called "Biological Transmutations", published by the Happiness
Press, Magali, Ca. Chris Bird wrote a chapter about Professor Kervran in the
book "The Secret Life of Plants".
He states that at the subatomic level, unknown
changes, etc. are produced. Light weight elements do transmute. In chapter
6 he discusses how calcium is derived from silicone. On page 95 he discusses
how enzymes in the human body allow iron to change into manganese.
Dr. Wallach: Yes, minerals do transmute
from higher periodic chart numbers to lower. For instance, uranium over thousands
of years will eventually turn into lead .But you can't go the other direction.
You can't take lead and go make gold, which has been tried.
The work of Professor Kervran involved chickens
laying soft eggs. Then they'd go out in the barnyard and eat sand in the barnyard
and suddenly their eggs would have calcium in the shells again. So he felt
that the birds were transmuting the silica into calcium. Not true. It doesn't
work that way.
The birds were not only eating sand. There was
also little bits of calcium carbonate in there from coral and oysters. And
it doesn't take much for it to get in the eggshells.
No living system...no plants or animals...can
make minerals or transmute minerals. In the laboratory, in industry, you can
make diamonds and rubies. So the definition which we had when I was in grade
school - "minerals can be neither created or destroyed" - isn't quite accurate.
Now you have to say: "Minerals can neither be created nor destroyed by living
systems". In a laboratory you can take raw materials and create minerals.
Interestingly, things like precious jewels actually
aren't a pure mineral. They're usually aluminum - based and have contaminants
in them which give them their color.
I've written a book on the subject titled "Rare Earths: Forbidden Cures" It includes all of
I know Chris Bird from "The Secret Life of Plants".
He's a great writer and a very interesting fellow.
