    I've read something interesting over at Dr. Mercola's website today.

    The article I read was http://articles.mercola.com/sites/ar...er-stroke.aspx



    He discusses how Curcumin may have anti-stroke properties...

    This in itself is interesting enough, but not enough to really perk me up.



    So I was browsing some of the Comments that were left by the Users...

    and this is where it got interesting...



    One of the Users at Mercola Website is named "Patrick McGean"

    And he states...



    "Curcumin is effective at preventing "bright plaque" or rocks of calcium carbonate which block an arteriole in the brain not the heart. The mitral valve is where these rocks form and break off and go to brain, blood clots do not cause stocks. I find it interesting that cardiologists don't have clue how the heart beats.



    Curcumin is rich in sulfur, and we have not had a reassurance of stroke after 6 weeks of sulfur added to the diet of those with a stoke history.



    In 1954 petrochemical broke the sulfur cycle with the mandated use of chemical fertilizers completely devoid of sulfur. India the home of curcumin had no heart disease of stroke until India chose to use chemical fertilizers and now heart disease and stroke are common in spite of the curcumin grown without sulfur.



    Everything we know on the Planet is made from 112 elements, sulfur is the element pHarma the lack of which



    was responsible for all of the modern diseases. 1971 pHarma paid petrochemical not to add the sulfur back.



    pHarma produced drugs to address the problem except for returning the sulfur.



    The proof, none of our study members take any of the advertised drugs of pHarma nor do they suffer from the diseases for which they were prescribed. 10,000 people no longer symptomatic of cardiovascular issues can not be ignored.



    When we forget our biology, our biology tends to end our lives.



    Organic Sulfur has 39% bio available sulfur, Curcumin only 20% when grown organically.



    Curcumin or Organic Sulfur? The Cellular Matrix Study suggests organic sulfur will be more effective and



    makes the other minerals in the spice more effective.



    For those physicians who think blood clots cause strokes please register for our class on strokes, you



    evidently know little about the biology of man.



    Sulfur can address all of the modern diseases being their cause is a lack of bio available sulfur.



    Got Sulfur? A crystal food could mean no more strokes.



    Patrick McGean



    Director



    Cellular Matrix Study



    Body Human Project est."




    Now this majorly peaked my interest, there is an air of "absolute belief" in his post

    yet I have to admit a lack of scientific studies is disappointing...



    I looked up the Cellular Matrix Study/Body Human Project online and I came up with this link...



    http://www.organicsulfur-msm.ca/cell...rix_study.html



    Apparently they are selling some kind of Organic Sulfur MSM Product...

    I have to admit that the reasoning/description/theory behind this product

    sounds very solid. Yet there is still a lack of science...



    What say you Avantalabians?

    There's your first mistake.

    I haven't seen research on this specific issue, but it's in line with curcumin's known effects.




    Curcumin is rich in sulfur, and we have not had a reassurance of stroke after 6 weeks of sulfur added to the diet of those with a stoke history.


    And we're done. This is bullshit, and the poster is either horribly unqualified to be making these statements or knowingly lying. Why? Because anyone who's taken a basic chemistry class in the past few years should be able to sort this out.



    Curcumin isn't rich in sulfur. It's not a mineral, an amalgum, a mixture, or a solution. It doesn't have multiple different chemical components. Instead, curcumin is a specific chemical compound, a molecule. And curcumin does not have so much as an atom of sulfur in its chemical structure. (Even if it did, it wouldn't matter, but that's not the point.)



    That's right, curcumin contains no sulfur and is no way related to elemental sulfur. The results of curcumin in stroke have nothing to do with sulfur and everything to do with the bioactive properties of curcumin's molecular structure.



    In short, this Patrick McGean is either a moron or a shill, and either way is not worth your time.

    Many claims, no evidence.

    Nonsense.

    There is a very good curcumin thread on this board. I recommend you read it.

    I'm usually tipped off when the writer has a weird way of spelling something like pHarma, which leads me to believe they've been indoctrinated into something special.





    In any event those of us who consume 10 eggs a day shouldn't be worried about lack of sulfur in our diets, no?

    Upon coming back to this thread and reading the replies...

    It would appear that Organic Sulfur as a Cure All for the

    general human condition "disease" has been debunked!



    I still have a nagging curiousity to hear Mr. McGean's side of things.

    I will try to contact him and see if he wouldn't mind chiming in here.



    Thanks all

    taurine - a sulfur amino acid is very healthy+ ergogenic (I posted respective studies both here at MM as well as my blog) - otherwise, I think its always the same: XY-deficiency is as bad as XY-overdose. So, if you consume too little sulfur, you may well find that taking additional organic sulfur cures a lot of problems
