This issue of Wise Traditions focuses on the subject of water—one we have wanted to tackle for many years. We publish these articles with much thanks to our presenters in the water track of our latest Wise Traditions conference. Professor Gerald Pollack of the University of Washington has led the way in elucidating the unique properties of water, showing that water structures itself against a hydrophilic surface—which could be anything from air to waxed paper to an artery wall—creating a separation of plus and minus charges. This “fourth state” of water helps explain many phenomena—from a stone skipping on the surface of a lake to blood cells flowing through tiny capillaries. The water in our cells exists mostly in this fourth state, providing a kind of battery for many cellular processes—it is indeed quite accurate to describe the water in plants, animals and humans as “living water.”
Professor Marty Michener explores the subject further, with explanations of how water’s properties keep our blood cells in suspension, and how they coagulate and clot under adverse circumstances—such as a dose of aluminum from a vaccination.
Norm LeMoine talks about what’s in our water—from chloramines to antibiotics to untreated sewage—and what we can do about it.
We are also happy to introduce a new writer for these pages, Merinda Teller, MPH, PhD, who will address current issues in her column “Reading Between the Lines.” In this issue she looks carefully at the recent WHO pronouncement against red meat, a healthy food the medical establishment loves to attack.
For those of you who were not able to attend Wise Traditions 2015—we missed you! Our speakers were uniformly outstanding this year, and so was the food. And we enjoyed meeting many new exhibitors. Next year’s conference is scheduled for November 11-14 in Montgomery, Alabama. Montgomery is about equidistant from three of our largest membership areas—the Mid-Atlantic, Texas, and Florida, and has good air service. Hotel room rates are very reasonable at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel.
It’s hard to believe another year has passed! Here at WAPF, we’ve been busy, keeping up with countless requests for information, issuing three new flyers (see page 10), submitting comments on the Food Safety Modernization Act on raw cheese, and on the 2015 USDA Dietary Guidelines, moving forward with our petition to remove the “heart healthy” label from soy foods, and keeping up with our huge website and popular Facebook page. We could do none of this without the support of you—our members! We wish you all good health and much happiness for the holidays and throughout the new year.
