Problems with Tapioca Starch
It is suggested that digestion and absorption of gut digesta may be influenced by the presence of chemically modified starches. One form of chemically modified starch is tapioca starch.
Research has shown adverse health effects on animals fed foods containing starch from tapioca. These diets showed to depress iron and zinc absorption, possibly leading to the noted iron and zinc deficiency in the study subjects, even when the diet fed contained adequate mineral content. Journal of Food Science
Keep this in mind when choosing pet foods that have substituted tapioca starch for the grain starches in their "grain-free" foods. No harm is likely unless such foods are fed relentlessly according to the 100% complete and balanced myth.
Steaming a Better Way to Cook
A recent study concluded that steaming of broccoli had minimal effects on the leaching of vitamins and minerals, as opposed to cooking by conventional boiling. Apply this information to as many cooked foods as you can. European Food and Research Technology
Processing Can Deplete Important Nutrients in Corn
Two carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin, are found most abundantly in corn. Corn is also high in beta-carotene. Processing of corn does play an important role in the viability of these nutrients in foods. Heat, light and air exposure can change the conjugated double bond configuration of the carotenoids into different isomers (E to Z), which are less bioavailable for absorption. Journal of Food Science
This again demonstrates that "cooking" is not benign as commonly thought.

TESTIMONIALS - WYSONG WORKS!
Love Human Nutritional Foods; The Cholesterol Myth Book
“I placed an order of several human products. I absolutely love the UnCereal Bars
! And the peanut butter
. I also ordered, among other items, the Natural Deodorant
Stone, Spray, & Powder. I use the stone under my arms, & what a relief from the sticky stuff. And it works! Better than any ‘regular’ deodorant or antiperspirant I've ever used! In fact, even though it's not an antiperspirant, I don't sweat using it. I use the spray on my feet, which is great too.
I received Dr. Wysong's book The Cholesterol Myth...
with my order & just finished reading it this weekend. What an unsettling account of the way we the public have been duped! And I believe every word of it! The scheme is so well documented, & in ways that even the most traditional of physicians could not refute the conclusions, all those clinical trials, statistics, referenced studies, etc. It has certainly opened my eyes.
I am so thankful for Dr. Wysong!”
DentaTreat™ Powerful Prevention
“Thank you for the fine products -- and I wish my vets were more knowledgeable about your supplements. I can't say enough for the DentaTreat. Lucy's poodle teeth were examined today. She is thirteen now and hasn't needed a deep cleaning for three years. She is frail and we do not want to risk anesthesia...but Lucy has ALWAYS had daily brushings and DentaTreat with her meals. The combination is very powerful prevention!!!! Thank you!”
Cat Back to Normal Weight on Epigen™
“My cat Midnight had blimped out on what I thought was quality food (before finding Wysong). She got up to 22 lbs. and was having trouble breathing. Yet she wasn't eating very much. I suspected that the ‘grain free’ (but potato starched) food was the culprit because she had trouble with foods that had grains, so I thought there was a chance that the starch was bad as well. I did some Internet searching and discovered Wysong Epigen. Within a couple of weeks after starting Wysong, Midnight started losing weight. Just a couple months later she was playing like a kitten. She is now back to 12 lbs. which is perfect for her size. Her coat is shiny and she is definitely happier. She now can keep up with my other active Abyssinian named Kiri. They both run like race horses and fly up the cat trees now. I believe Wysong is responsible for saving my cat's life and I am forever in your debt. Thank you for both the quality food and the information available on your site.”
PDG™ Helps Diabetic Cat in Crisis
“Once again my now 15-year-old diabetic cat is in a health crisis - not eating or drinking on her own. I've resorted to giving her water thru a syringe and PDG formula in a feeding bottle. In a couple of days, she's gone from comatose to walking and evacuating again. The same thing happened about a year ago. Thank you for coming up with this product. I've been recommending it to other pet owners - it's amazing stuff!"
