So I’ve been researching this more but ran into some early problems. I haven’t even gotten to the claims about weather or not mineral supplements work or not. There is a talking point that Dr. Wallach says all the time he claims that: Dr. Linus Pauling two time nobel prize winner said, “You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment to a mineral deficiency.” However there is an inconsistency here because, his research institute has put out this statement alleging that he never said it!!!
“A statement purportedly attributed to Linus Pauling has proliferated on the Internet, often in association with the sale of mineral supplements. The alleged quote is usually akin to “You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment to a mineral deficiency.” We are reasonably certain that Pauling never made such a statement for the obvious reason that it is untrue. Pauling was interested in the health effects of micronutrients, especially vitamin C, the vitamin that absorbed his interest for almost thirty years. Throughout his career, Pauling used x-ray diffraction to elucidate the molecular structure of many inorganic substances, such as minerals, and organic substances like proteins. If he had been particularly interested in the health benefits of minerals, he would have focused his research in this direction. There is no evidence in the published literature that he did so.”
So my friend ever the conspiracy theorist cooks up a reason why Dr. Pauling’s institute would release this statement. They have been working closely with big pharmaceutical companies so that they can discredit Dr. Wallach. He claims that they released this statement to shed doubt on Dr. Wallach’s work so that they can continue to profit off of real medicine that actually works lolz.
So in other words he jumped From: the more logical reason for the Paling institute to release this statement because of exactly what they said. They said that Pauling never stated the statement and if he was interested in the health benefits of minerals he would have focused much more money and energy into it. Meaning that Pauling didn’t continue in this research because it is at best inconclusive, but probably because he didn’t find any health benefits. There’s no conspiracy because these pills are still on the market, anyway.
To: a massive conspiracy about this little institute working with the pharma companies to send out a false statement about a false statement.
That also means that Dr. Wallach has been using this statement of his in a fraudulent way and it is a shame that Pauling isn’t alive today to stop him further and take the proper legal action.
