What Can Spirulina (Pond Scum) Do For Your Health?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Quora Question:

What can Spirulina (pond scum) do for your health?

My Response:

Nutridiot –Short Form of “Nutritional Idiot”
Noun – A person who is foolish or stupid regarding the subject of nutrition.A person who offers poor nutritional advice. A person(s) who mistakes junk for nutritional foods.

Note: First introduced in 2013 by Dr. Bob McCauley as a response to those who refused to recognize that certain algae are amongst the healthiest foods we can consume.

The world is full of Nutridiots, the nutritionally challenged who run around misinforming us as to what foods are healthy and what foods are not. Dr. Robert O. Young, M.S., Shave and Grooming Made Simple., Ph.D. is right on some things, but a Nutridiot when it comes to the subject of algae.

He calls algae pond scum, along with nearly every follower of Ann Wigmore including the folks at the Creative Health Institute and Hippocrates in Florida.

I happen to think that chlorella and spirulina are what most vegetarians and vegans should be using for their protein since they are 60% protein, and have the broadest array of nutrients of any whole foods.

Spirulina is an extremely pure food, 95% digestible, extremely high in the Vitamin B-complex, iron, calcium and essential fatty acids such as Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), which is excellent for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis or bursitis. Spirulina is an excellent food to consume before a workout because of the explosive energy it provides to the body.

In conclusion, in short, spirulina is one of the two most powerful foods on earth and it should NOT be referred to as POND SCUM. That is, unless you want to be known as a Nutridiot. :)

Is Week Old Alkaline Ionized Water Still Good To Drink

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Inquiry:

Dr. McCauley, I have a question! Let’s say I buy your ionizing machine, and fill up my plastic 5-gallon water jugs with it and put it on my water cooler. Does the “effectiveness” of the water diminish the longer my family takes to drink the entire jug? I’ve read on a few websites that it’s useless to drink company-bottled alkaline ionized water because the combination of sitting on the shelf+the plastic used slowly lowers the pH over time.

My Response: 

Good question. The fresher Alkaline Ionized Water – AIW – is the healthier it is. The antioxidant qualities will be gone within 18 – 24 hours, the high pH will last several months, and the smaller water molecule clusters will last a year or longer. I try to drink as much as I can straight out of the tap. The fresher, the better, but even if you fill jugs with it and it takes a few days to drink it is still vastly superior to any other drinking water. PERIOD!

Turmeric Cures Woman’s Cancer

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Turmeric cures cancer.  At least this is what we are told by Dieneke Ferguson who claims that the medical industry and their bag of tricks were doing anything to end her battle with the emperor of maladies, ie cancer.  So she start taking turmeric and it cured her cancer so she claims.  The truth is that the body is capable of curing itself of any disease.  The “active ingredient” in turmeric that makes it one of the most healing foods on the planet is curcumin, a yellow pigment.  It exerts potent anti-inflammatory effects, and these anti-inflammatory effects may be protective against some form of cancer progression based on very preliminary research. Turmeric is more effective when it is take with black pepper (piperine), a molecule that does not do much on its own but can inhibit enzymes that would attack other molecules. Due to this, it is ingested alongside some supplements to increase their absorption rates and is almost always consumed with curcumin. We offer Chlorella/Turmeric tablets.

A woman who battled blood cancer for years without success finally halted the disease with turmeric, it has been reported.  Dieneke Ferguson is now leading a normal life after giving up on grueling treatments that failed to stop it. Doctors say her case is the first recorded instance in which a patient has recovered by using the spice after stopping conventional medical treatments.

With her myeloma spreading rapidly after three rounds of chemotherapy and four stem cell transplants, the 67-year-old began taking 8g of curcumin a day – one of the main compounds in turmeric.  Daily Mail

  • Curcumin is a potent natural anti-inflammatory.
  • Curcumin is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent, useful in disinfecting cuts and burns.
  • When combined with cauliflower, Curcumin has shown to prevent prostate cancerand stop the growth of existing prostate cancer.
  • Curcumin is a natural liver detoxifier.
  • Curcumin is a natural painkiller and cox-2 inhibitor.
  • Curcumin may aid in fat metabolism and help in weight management.
  • Curcumin long been used in Chinese medicine as a treatment for depression.turmeric-root-powder
  • Curcumin provided joint support.

Is It Safe To Say That A Vegan Diet In Itself Is Unhealthy Due To No Vitamin B12 Being Present?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Quora Question:

Is it safe to say that a vegan diet in itself is unhealthy due to no vitamin B12 being present?

My Answer:

I have been a vegetarian for 37 years, and a vegan for 18 years. I recently had my blood work done, including my B vitamins. My B12 was quite high and my B6 was through the roof. How could that possibly be? How I Got Perfect Blood Work – Dr. Bob McCauley’s Blog. I made a video that explains exactly what the levels were and how I did it at age 60. I eat 200 – 300 different foods every year, but where I get my B vitamins, including B-12, is from Spirulina and Chlorella. You will hear that the B-12 in spirulina is not in the correct form, the analog form, so it cannot be used by the body. This is nonsense in my opinion. I get tons B vitamins from both chlorella and spirulina because I use them for my main protein source. I am full of energy and have been tested for them. Look at my blog and video, you will see them how high their levels are.

The ultimate source of all vitamin B-12 is derived at the microbial production level. Although plants and animals cannot synthesize or store vitamin B-12, it is effectively passed through the food chain, accumulated and recycled by animals.

If low levels of B12 remain for a long time, the condition also can lead to irreversible damage to nerve cells, which can cause the following symptoms:

  • Numbness and tingling in the hands and feet.
  • Irritability.
  • Difficulty walking or moving.
  • Muscle weakness.
  • Memory loss.
  • Dementia.
  • Depression.
  • Psychosis.

Test for Vitamin B-12: Stand at attention, close your eyes, put your right foot out and you should be able to hold you balance. If you can’t balance yourself then you may have a Vitamin B-12 deficiency.

What is Spirulina?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Quora question

What is Spirulina?

My answer:

Spirulina is NOT an algae. Spirulina is a cyanobacteria (blue bacteria). It is unlike any other food on the planet. It is one of the two most powerful foods known. Every plant on earth evolved from chlorella, a green algae. Although spirulina and chlorella have similar nutritional profiles they are completely different foods.

Like Chlorella, it is 60% protein and has the broadest array of nutrients of any food. These are the only two foods known that you could live on exclusively and get all the nutrients you require. I personally take chlorella and/or spirulina with every meal since the protein will help you body digest it’s food. It’s the healthiest food you can consume.

The 2 Statements I Make That Drives People Insane

By Dr. Bob McCauley

There are 2 things that I say that get the biggest reaction you can imagine.  People will just not accept what I am telling them.

  1. There is almost zero evidence of chronic disease found in nature.  Chronic disease is exclusive to humans other than the animals we domesticate.  Then they end up with all the same diseases we have.
  2. I will not die of a disease.  I will most certainly die of murder, assassination, or in an accident.  God brought me into the world, He will take me when it’s time.  But not of a disease because I drink Alkaline Ionized Water, take chlorella and spirulina, eat only raw fruits and vegetables, take probiotics and prebiotics (fermented foods), take liquid angstrom minerals, exercise vigorously daily, maintain a positive mental attitude.  The body is capable of curing itself of any disease, and is most certainly capable of preventing any disease, even if you have a slight genetic propensity toward that.

Can I Use Spirulina As A Substitute For Food?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Quora Question:

Can I use Spirulina as a substitute for food (carbohydrate based) for a day, or so? Is it effective? Are there any side-effects (both long-term and short-term)?

My Response:

Both Spirulina and Chlorella are food therefore there is no need to consider them food substitutes. In fact, they are the two most powerful foods known. Nothing comes close. They are the only two foods you can live on exclusively and get all your essential nutrients. There are many foods that you can survive on, but none that will provide you with all the nutrients you need to live a healthy life.

I raised my two boys on spirulina and chlorella. They DSCF7721both ran track and cross country and we’re top runners on their teams.

Spirulina and Chlorella DO have a major side-effect: Great Health.

“Taiwan Quality Food” Replaces GMP After Fraud

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Wei Ying-chung, the former chairman of Ting Hsin Oil and Fat Industrial Co  and Wei Chuan Foods Corp was found guilty of fraud in a tainted oil scandal exposed in 2013.  He was also the current Managing Director of Taiwan Good Manufacturing Practices “GMP” since 2011 up to and through the entire scandal.  When the Taiwan FDA discovered that the head of Good Manufacturing Practices in Taiwan owned factories that were deliberately selling tainted, recycled cooking oil to the pubic.  In fact, the oil quite popular because of it’s low price and was used throughout Taiwan by million of Taiwanese people.  Millions of Taiwanese people who trusted that the oil they were purchasing was the best quality.  It was completely adulterated and rancid oil.  Wei Ying-chung served only two-years in prison for his horrendous crime of poisoning millions of people, victims of his greed while ruining the reputation of GMP Taiwan.  GMP literally became a joke to the Taiwanese food industry.  The Taiwanese people could not trust their own food supply, meaning the products they found on their own shelves.  In short, the fox was guarding the hen house.   Several other officials of the Wei Chuan Foods Corp were also imprisoned.

Taiwan subsequently decided to establish an Association that would be better, more thorough, more accountable with higher  than GMP called the Taiwan Quality Food Association.  It also works more closely with Taiwan FDA, which failed in their regulatory oversight in this matter.

GMP certification has officially been transferred to and managed by TQF (Taiwan Quality Food) Association from TQF_LogoIndustrial Development Bureau of Ministry of Economic Affair (IDB, MOEA) since June 24th 2015. In the meantime, Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) in Taiwan has been improved and renamed as the TQF product certification scheme. TQF is a food safety and quality certification system that incorporates the accreditation surveillance by TAF (Taiwan Accreditation Foundation), a globally recognized accreditation body in Taiwan. Products are certified against the TQF specifications and standards in accordance with the food safety fundamentals (GHP and GMP) and the food safety management plan, the HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point). TQF certificate and logo can then be issued to the suppliers in compliance of conformity assessments by TQF recognized certification bodies which are accredited in regard to ISO/IEC 17065.  TQF Official Announcement

Here is the new procedures for Taiwan Quality Food Association:

TQF SCOPE

On Oct. 21, 2014, prosecutors indicted Wei, former Ting Hsin Oil and Fat president Chang Mei-feng (常梅峰) and former Wei Chuan president Chang Chiao-hua (張教華), along with several others, on charges of fraud, forgery and violations of food regulations.

Wei was originally sentenced to four years in prison by the Taipei District Court in a first trial in March last year, during which Chang was acquitted and the others were given prison terms ranging from five months to 46 months.

Raw Vegan Diet Or Vegan Or Vegetarian Diet?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Quora Question:

Is a raw vegan diet better than a vegan and vegetarian diet?

My Response:

The biggest myth that has been perpetuated through the centuries and remains well established to this day is that a diet comprised mostly of cooked foods is healthy. 99% of the population will tell you that some amount of cooked foods is required for us to be healthy, but they are wrong. We’re also misinformed that many foods require cooking to release their nutrients. Cooking can increase the potency, character and effectiveness of certain nutrients. However, any gain we may get by increasing the bioavailability of certain nutrients in the food will be more than offset by the destruction of its all-important enzymes and thus its rejuvenative powers.

Cooking any food transforms it from an alkaline to an acid substance. Lycopene, an anti-cancer agent found in tomatoes, is a perfect example of this. Lycopene is found in greater concentration after heating tomatoes above 120°F. But the overall detriment to the tomato is not worth the extra lycopene

the body may absorb from it. Also, the smaller amount of lycopene will be absorbed more efficiently by the body from a raw tomato than the larger amount of lycopene found in the cooked tomato. This is essentially true of any food once it has been cooked.

When we eat cooked foods, the body reacts to them as it would to any foreign invader such as a virus, poison or bacterial infection by producing white blood cells called leukocytes, which are meant to attack and destroy any invader. Studies on this phenomenon, which is known as digestive leukocytosis, were done in Switzerland in 1930.[i] White blood cell production is an immune response that also occurs in the body due to poisoning, trauma or infection. Highly processed, homogenized, pasteurized foods or those with chemical preservatives produced the strongest reaction by the body, i.e. the highest production of white blood cells.

The reason the body reacts this way is that since cooked foods are dead, the body does not recognize them because they are lacking enzymes and their natural chemical structure has been altered beyond recognition by heat. This effect was renamed pathological leukocytosis because of the way the body reacts to highly denatured, chemically altered foods. Pathological refers to disease because the production of white blood cells is one of the body’s reactions to invaders or conditions that may lead to disease. Digestive leukocytosis did not occur at all in test subjects who ate raw foods, which were labeled “friendly foods” by the researchers. This reaction happens only when we consume substances that simply don’t belong in the body. This is one of the reasons why eating cooked foods drains our energy. It is direct evidence that the body recognizes cooked foods as toxins or an infection that must be attacked and eradicated before they do damage to the body.


[i] Research was conducted at the Institute of Clinical Chemistry in Lausanne, Switzerland under the direction of Dr. Paul Kouchakoff.
