Copper Deficiency?


FOTCM Member
Found this interesting blog on the net and thought that even the religious rant part was interesting in terms of psychopathy. I don't know how true the health claims are, but maybe somebody has some info on that?

Once again I thank a friend for this piece. In this case it is Dublin Mick who would like to see this information going viral. It is just that deeply hidden, embedded, covered by many false reports and leads to keep us from learning this crucial key to our health and longevity.

This is a fine collection of an older South West

American copper cooking collection

I added minimal elaboration because the data is already so complex but crucial knowledge for our health and well being. We are dealing with the work of Lucifer's minions because the results of copper depletion are insidious and thoroughly evil in that they suck the joy of life and will to live from the staunchest individual.

I know from experience, watching an elderly parent struggle in the latter stages of Parkinson's Disease, a condition that steals pleasure and dignity on a daily basis. However, despite the despair, some souls, like my mother, refuse to succumb and approach each day with resilience and confidence in her God.

COLLOIDAL COPPER is the roto-rooter of the blood arteries. It interacts, cleanses and defends the arteries. It stimulates COLLAGEN and promotes the skin's elasticity. Thus it protects and defends against the following:- arteries, veins, aneurysm, aneurysm, arteriosclerosis, blocked arteries, deafness, inner-ear, lower back pain, swollen disc, slipped disc, swollen soft tissue, inflammation, antioxidant, wrinkles, collagen, fungicide, damaged soft tissue,

The Blood Typing Farce: Nearly 95% of the population, who have blood type ‘O’ and ‘A’ which are the thinnest blood and lowest blood volume, and blood type ‘B’, have copper deficiency, due to slow poisoning from blood thinners, alkaline and acidic chemicals (any non-neutral), copper binders, and copper antagonists, that they have completely and thoroughly saturated the food and food chain and water sources with.

These are in addition to wireless radiation and vaccine poisons which are quicker and more effective methods for depleting copper, and are primary methods for expediting our death. These poisons have altered and damaged the proteins/DNA of the blood and other tissues of the body, with the damage (and deficiency) passing down through the generations.

Starting in 1996, the copper depletion rate was significantly increased and coincides with the onslaught of GMO foods, chemtrails, wireless technology, increase of diseases and debilitating symptoms, weakened immune system, and decreasing lifespan.

Copper is essential in the formation of normal healthy proteins, that is, normal amino acid sequences, in that it provides a balanced pH state for the blood and tissues, maintaining the proper concentration of hydrogen for forming the bonds in normal protein synthesis.

Copper is acidic at a pH of 5.5 and is important in providing a balance of the numerous alkaline and acidic nutrient minerals. A balanced pH of 7.00 is present in blood type AB, which is the only normal blood type, while the pH of the alkaline blood types (A/O) was set up to 7.54 in 2005 and the pH of the acidic blood type B decreased further by the same date.

Lifespan decreases as blood pH moves further away from 7.00. The desired population reduction rate was set up by increasing the pH level of the alkaline blood types to 7.54, while decreasing the pH of the acidic blood type.

Consequently, due to unbalanced pH levels, the vast majority of the population has malformed proteins and is missing normal proteins, as can be evidenced just in the blood properties as noted in different “blood types”. The blood types of A, B, and O are missing the normal (clotting) proteins; type A is missing B, B is missing A, and O is missing both A and B proteins.

The “Rhesus Factor” (D-protein) is a probable malformed or variant A or B protein, resulting from insufficient copper levels. Moreover, we were not created with “blood incompatibilities” that would harm us and our unborn children, as known to occur with an rH negative mother and rH positive fetus, and with blood transfusions.

The blood type AB is balanced and therefore does not carry the malformed “Rhesus Factor” protein as found in the other blood types, thus, only AB negative blood is possible.

The Life Of A Creature Is In The Blood

United States Population Closer to 200 Million (as spoken through His servant John): Reporting shows increase of deaths in the age groups of 45-54 and 55-64 years of age and decreases in the ages 65 years and older. More interesting, a huge discrepancy is noted in raw death number totals (one state in 2008) versus the “official” death numbers coming from the national and state level. The raw data is consistently about 66-67%, based on average daily deaths by month in 2008. Assuming a reported death rate of approximately 9.2 to 10 coupled with the raw numbers, this state’s population was about 66-67% of the official 2008 numbers.

Use Diabetes Prevalence and Type B Blood to Determine National Population Numbers: This particular state has diabetes prevalence 3% higher than the national average, thus about a 4.5% higher type B blood than in the overall population, due to a greater degree of copper deficiency. (Note: The percentage of type B blood can be estimated in a population as 1.5 times the diabetes prevalence when the population is not decreasing, because it is known that one third of type B blood may not develop diabetes in their lifetime. However, when the population is decreasing as it is now, diabetes prevalence is continuously changing and the multiplier of 1.5 cannot be used.)

As diabetes prevalence increases there is a corresponding increase in percentage of type B blood in a given population, due to the alkaline blood types of A/O dying off at a faster rate than blood type B. Indeed, type B blood has increased from 10% in the 1960’s to about 26% based on the current diabetes prevalence and pre-diabetes status of the population.

Copper use by humans is a long and varied, dating back nearly 10,000 years with multiple applications. Copper is, in fact, humanity’s first metal and shows up in Sumerian and Egyptian metallurgy circa 3900 BC.

The accelerated deaths of the alkaline blood types are followed closely by blood type B which is also at an accelerated death rate, all due to severe copper deficiency brought about by copper depleting poisons. Only the death rate of the blood type AB is normal with long healthy average lifespan ~ that is an average of 120 years, which they have concealed. (See Paragraph on Diabetes Prevalence below for further explanation.)

Using the above mentioned 3% difference in diabetes prevalence, or 4.5% difference in type B blood between that particular state and national percentages, would place the 2009 national population numbers at about 70% of the official numbers. Therefore, as of about 25 Jul 2009 the population of the United States was approximately 214.7 million.


To determine when the population numbers peaked, add 1% for each year going back (start with 70% for 2009) and multiply by the “official” population numbers for that year. The population peaked at about 226 million in 1979-1980.

Thus far, the population has decreased by 5% since 1979-80, with the greatest yearly decreases in the last few years. This is when the blood pH deviated further away from 7.00, when the alkaline blood types were approaching the 7.54 pH level and the acidic blood type B became more acidic. This is when the “Abomination that causes desolation” – depopulation, was set up, when the final extermination phase was set up.

Current Blood Type/Group Distribution in the U.S.: The previous blood type distribution, disclosed in about the 1960’s was AB – 4%, B – 10%, A/O – 86%. Now with the copper depletion rate accelerating, the blood type distribution is approximately as follows: *AB – 6.7%, B – 26.3 %, A/O – 67%. (* “Calculate their number” using actual population numbers and percentage countdown, when the poisoned blood types reach 200,000,000 blood type AB will be 6.66 % of the population.) Thus, currently there are close to 200 million of the 214.5 million in the population who have been copper depleted – poisoned. This explains what is spoken through His servant John, “The number of the mounted troops was 200 million, I heard their number.”

Decreasing Lifespan: Reporting by national sources, “Baby Boomer Deaths Could Fuel Funeral Industry”, indicates that many of the baby boomers (born between the years 1946 – 1964) are scheduled for extermination in this decade. The article also indicates the overall average national death rate is expected to increase from 8.1 to 10.9. In some states where the death rate is already 10 – 11 could be expected to increase to approximately 13-14.

These are indicators that not only is the population not increasing in numbers as we have been led to believe, but is in fact decreasing. Cancer deaths have been decreasing for the last few years, while major cardiovascular deaths have been on a slow decline for some time now since about 1980. The decline in these two major causes of death is not due to being healthier and living longer, but is evidence of the population decreasing.

Indication of Significantly Lower Birth numbers: In 1979-1980 school age children, 5–17 years of age, numbered 48.041 million (Ref 15), comprising 21.4 % of the total population. As of two years ago, spring 2007, the total number of school age children was approximately 52.0 million. (Computed from Ref 16: ages 5-17 given for home schooled, non-home schooled possibly 4-19 years of age due to preschool and many being held back now) Although this represents an increase of 8.2% of school age children, the “official” total population numbers increased 33.2%, from 226.0 million in 1979-1980 to 301.1 million in 2007.

This is indication that birth numbers are greatly exaggerated. School age children comprised 24% of the real 2007 population numbers, not 17% reflected in the fraudulent inflated population numbers. This 24% in the lower age group is the result of a “trickling down” effect from the older age groups dying off and a decreasing average lifespan. The age distribution is manipulated by artificially increasing the total population numbers. The fraudulent age distribution of 17% of school age children is used to explain that the population is living longer.

Using the ratio of the actual increase of school age children of 8.2% to the fraudulent total population increase of 33.2%, the birth numbers are no more than 25% of “official” numbers. This would make the actual Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) at least four times the official rate. Although the infant death numbers appeared to be close to the actual number, (at least until 14 July 2009), the artificial increase in population numbers coupled with exaggerated birth numbers make it appear the IMR has been decreasing over the years.

Ongoing Manipulation of Age Distribution/Age Structure: The same discrepancy between the raw death numbers and the “official” national and state numbers continues into 2009. Evidence of manipulation of the age structure is apparent by comparing raw death numbers to incoming national/state death numbers by age group for 2009, (one state). Thus far, as of 21 August 2009, about 96.3% of the inflated death numbers appear to be in the 45+ year age groups.

World Population Closer to 4 Billion: Researching the world blood types distribution, it is apparent that most of the rest of the world, excluding the western nations, has been in the final extermination phase for decades now, and thus, their numbers have been negative population growth.

They Try to Change the Set Times:

Swine and Seasonal Flu Vaccine Alert

They try to change the set times. The Swine Flu (H1N1) vaccine and apparently regular flu vaccine (Evidence of Thimerosal, H1N1 Virus in Seasonal Vaccine) are being used in an attempt to abruptly kill significant numbers of population, to bring the population numbers (blood types A, B, O – those who do not belong to them) well below 200 million. This is the purpose of forced vaccinations, to kill many all at once and cause debilitating chronic symptoms in the blood types A, B and O, which have damaged DNA/proteins and weakened immune system.

The number of these blood types is quickly approaching 200 million. By abruptly bringing the population numbers below 200 million, they believe they can change the set times and have victory over their Creator. But, their end will still come at the appointed time – at that very hour and day predetermined long ago.

Vaccines were developed under the cover (lie) they will protect from harmful viruses and bacteria, and were never needed and are another fraud perpetrated on the people. Harmful viruses and bacteria thrive and replicate in the blood types A, B and O, which have blood pH that has deviated away from a neutral pH of 7.00. An unbalanced blood pH prevents normal activation and function of the enzymes required to fight off harmful viruses and bacteria.

Enzymes are made up of proteins and if any are missing or malformed due to copper deficiency, they do not activate and function at normal levels. A neutral blood pH of 7.00 destroys/removes harmful bacteria and viruses because the enzymes activate and function at normal healthy levels due to sufficient levels of copper, providing proper concentration of hydrogen to form the protein bonds. Thus, the blood type AB is the normal healthy blood type with a neutral pH of 7.00 and has healthy immune function, and normal DNA.

Vaccination is in fact the most effective and efficient method to transport poisons more directly into the liver, to displace and deplete copper from that location. The liver is where much of the blood proteins (and other proteins) are synthesized and is where the greatest percentage of copper is stored. Copper is vital in protein synthesis.

Vaccine poisons settle and accumulate in the liver depleting and displacing copper, thereby causing a mineral imbalance and deviation from a 7.00 pH, resulting in near-immediate massive DNA damage, by disrupting normal protein synthesis.

This aberration in protein synthesis is indicated in malformed and missing proteins, reflected in acidic blood (type B) or alkaline blood (types A & O), depending on individual propensity of the mineral imbalance, i.e., toward acidic or alkaline.

As of 2005, the blood pH of blood types A/O was set up to average pH of 7.54 and the blood type B was set up to a higher acidity level (lower pH). The blood pH (blood types A,B & O) has been carefully managed through methodical, intentional poisoning, to reach the current life-critical levels specifically targeting this point in time. The vaccines, planned long ago for this period in time, are formulated to push the blood pH past the critical points, in order to kill and disable many.

Blood pH Levels Background: The A-protein is alkaline as it is made up of more of the alkaline amino acids. The B-protein is acidic with more of the acidic amino acids.

Although no specific range was found for type B blood, a person with diabetes is known to have a pH of 6.8, and some references document a pH range of human blood of 6.8 – 7.7, which would encompass the type B blood at the acidic end. When the A and B proteins are present together, as in Type AB blood, the pH of the blood is in a balanced state or approximate pH of 7.00.

Please enlarge this thumb to learn more.

A balanced pH is also indicative of the nutrient minerals being in balance. Individuals with blood types A and O have a propensity to carry a blood mineral/metal imbalance toward the alkaline, while those with blood type B have a propensity to carry a blood imbalance toward acidic minerals/metals, all cases due to copper deficiency.

With type O blood, the alkaline level is so high that even the normal alkaline A-protein cannot be formed, and thus, is missing. According to numerous references and texts, at least up to about the mid 1970’s, the pH range for blood in the US was 7.35 – 7.45, with an average pH of 7.40. (Some reference books document a pH above 7.45 is indicative of severe alkalosis and is fatal.) Assuming Type B is acidic and Type AB is at or near 7.00, this range apparently included type A’s and O’s, which comprised 86% of the US population. The same dated texts and references document the percentages of type O as 45 % and type A as 41%, in the US population.

It is interesting to note that a clinic in the US recently measured blood pH samples of 259 clients, from January 2004 to June 2005, and found the average pH to be significantly higher at 7.54, as of December 2004 – March 31, 2005. (Ref 12) If assuming only Type A’s and O’s were recorded in the samples, and O’s are the higher pH, this data may indicate that type O blood in the US could be currently near the 7.60 pH level. Additionally, many individuals with type A blood may change over to type O blood if the pH has increased to a point or range at which the A protein disappears.

Fraudulent History and Evolution Theory: “In 1900, Karl Landsteiner, a physician in Vienna, Austria, noted that the sera of some individuals led to the ‘discovery’ of ABO blood types.” (Ref 1) Essentially, he noted a distinct difference in viscosity/pH level or the clotting factors of blood. Later on his students “discovered” the AB blood type. Then, in 1940, the “Rhesus Factor” (D-Protein) was detected. In truth, there is only one blood type among humans, and that is type AB. Anything else is a mutation due to copper deficiency.

As each generation has been deprived and depleted of copper, the mutated genes/proteins have become weaker. These mutations of the blood and other structures that have manifested over the generations, is used as supporting evidence for the fraudulent “Evolution Theory”.

The mutated blood types of A, B, and O and the presence of the “Rhesus Factor” are used to establish a lineage/correlation of the vast majority of the human population to the man-apes. This correlation does not exist, since humans are created solely with blood type AB, and the man-apes do not carry this blood type.

Ref 2, in 1959 20% of Black Americans had type B blood and Caucasians had 10% type B, different severity levels of copper deficiency, indicating that Blacks may have been copper deficient (poisoned) before being brought over on slave ships. (One last note is, there were a small number of populations that contain only alkaline blood types, but these populations may have been manipulated by intentional extraction of the type B blood.)

Copper Functions: Copper maintains mineral balance, thus a balanced pH with normal blood viscosity, by functioning as the primary antioxidant in the body. When the blood is of normal viscosity with optimal blood flow, the blood is able to rid the body of toxic metals, chemicals, and any overload of other minerals, (and harmful bacteria and viruses), thereby retaining and balancing out the nutrient minerals.

It has been documented that a “decrease in antioxidant protection caused by copper deficiency goes beyond a decrease in the activity of copper-dependent enzymes by inducing a wide range of disturbances in the other enzyme systems.” (Ref 4) This is because copper provides a balanced neutral pH of 7.00 that is required by these enzyme systems in order to activate and function at normal levels.

Enzymes are made up of proteins and if any are missing or malformed due to copper deficiency, they do not activate and function at normal levels. These other enzyme systems are involved in the formation of bone and connective tissue, immune system, cardiovascular and heart, brain, liver, blood vessels, pigmentation, collagen and elastin, blood clotting factors, all the glandular systems, and many others. (Ref 4)

Thus, it can be stated with certainty that copper is the single most important nutrient in the body. This is why copper is the target for deprivation and depletion.

Restated, copper deficiency

causes a complete breakdown

of the blood’s ability

to eliminate toxins/poisons from the body.

These toxins then deposit and accumulate

in various locations of the body,

which then acidify those locations

causing serious life threatening disease states

such as cancer, cardiovascular disease,

diabetes, obesity, immune deficiencies,

neurological dysfunction,

and many other diseases and symptoms.

Alkalizing the blood and body does not solve the problem, and will only deplete more copper and move the pH further away from 7.00. The solution is neutralizing the pH (7.00) by balancing the nutrient minerals. The mineral that performs this function is copper. Thus, the solution is to replenish copper and remove all copper depleting poisons from the food chain and the environment.

Diabetes Prevalence Reveals Increased Mortality Rate in Alkaline Blood Types (Blood Types A and O): Diabetes data was chosen for the purpose of this writing because it correlates to blood type B, thereby making it easier to isolate the type B blood from the alkaline blood types in disease.

Not surprisingly, national level health and medical organizations did not have any data on blood type correlated to diabetes, or other diseases for that matter, when requested. But, we know that blood type B is the acidic of the blood types and diabetes is known to be caused by an elevated acidity level of the blood.

According to documentation, diabetes is associated to a blood pH of approximately 6.8, thus, diabetes does correlate to type B blood.

Indeed, when the diabetic individual’s blood becomes dangerously high in acidity, Diabetic Keto-Acidosis (DKA) occurs, and is treated with high alkaline chemicals. Additionally, according to estimates in 1959 and possibly until about the mid 1970’s, blood type B comprised about 10% of the US population, which corresponded with the combined estimate of both diagnosed and undiagnosed cases of diabetes. (Note: Most documentation on diabetes indicates that one third of all cases are undiagnosed.

It may be that one third of individuals with type B blood do not develop diabetes, but do develop other diseases associated with type B.) According to dated references about 20% of African Americans and 10% of Caucasians carry the type B blood in the US, which is why African Americans were at twice the risk of developing diabetes than Caucasians.

The following web site should be referenced for graph and data interpretations: Prevalence of Diagnosed Diabetes by Age, United States, 1980-2004. The graph depicts percentage of the population on the vertical axis and the years 1980 through 2004 on the horizontal axis. The age groups are color coded lines according to age range. (Since this writing, CDC site was updated to include up to 2005. In October 2008 CDC added in the year 2006, and at that time a change was noted in the 2005 figures.)

Data Analysis: Ages 0-64 yrs show a slight increase from 6.1% in 1980 to 7.0 % in 1995, and then in 1996 a steady significant increase started in the 45-64 yrs age group. Concurrently, significant increases started in the combined 65+ yrs age groups. The combined percentage in the older age groups indicates that about 1 in 3 individuals aged 65 and older were diagnosed with diabetes in the year 2004, indicating the blood pH has decreased in this age group. Note that in the same year, 2004/2005, there was a significant increase recorded in the pH level of the alkaline blood types, a pH of 7.54. (Paragraph 3) If including the undiagnosed cases, that is — the one third of type B who may not develop diabetes, the data indicates that about 1 in 2 individuals over the age of 65 years, has type B blood.

The significance of this data is as follows:

1) At some point within the year 1995/1996, an increased rate of copper depletion began, which started manifesting in the year 1996. It should be mentioned here the year 1996 coincides with the onslaught of wireless radiation and chemtrails, in addition to increased copper depleting poisons in all the food and water.

2) The ratio of type B blood changes from about 1 in 8 in the age range 0-64 yrs to 1 in 2 in the age of 65+ yrs in 2004, after factoring in the “undiagnosed” cases. This does not mean that individuals with the alkaline blood types A and O are changing over to the acidic blood type B, but that many with the alkaline blood types are now dying in their 40s and 50s.

3) Although a shortened lifespan, individuals with type B blood have a longer life expectancy on average, than the alkaline blood types. Note that Alzheimer’s, kidney disease, liver disease, heart disease, strokes, and amputations are all linked to diabetes, all of which greatly affect quality of life.

4) Lastly, the decreasing lifespan in the alkaline blood types will cause a corresponding increase in the percentage of individuals with type B blood in the overall population, as well as an increase in the percentage of individuals with type AB blood.

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) reports in 2008, an estimated 54 million Americans have pre-diabetes and 20+ million have been diagnosed with diabetes. This may indicate the percentage of type B blood in the overall population has risen from 10% in 1959 to approximately 26% now, with most of the increase occurring from 1996 to present.

Also, according to the ADA, American Indian, African American and Hispanic/Latino have an increased risk of developing diabetes. This is because these groups started out with a greater degree of copper deficiency (poisoning) and thus, a greater percentage of type B blood than Caucasians. However, Caucasians are now quickly catching up to the other groups, starting from 1996 to March 2005, when the pH level of the alkaline blood types was increased to 7.54. (see: pH chart)

Of all the groups in the U.S., American Indians appear to be the most decimated, as evidenced by the high rate of diabetes and short lifespan among some tribes, such as the Lakotah Nation.

The Myth of “Disease”: (See Ref 4,5) In their multitudes of “scholarly” medical works there is virtually always mention of missing and “variant” proteins in regards to different diseases. Copper deficiency causes “variant” malformed, missing, damaged DNA/proteins, and is responsible for virtually EVERY “disease” and symptom manifesting now, accelerating aging and death.

Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, MS, mental depression, diabetes, autism, other neurological diseases, ADD, ADHD, pancreatic and digestive problems, inflammation, inflammatory diseases, obesity, bleeding disorders, anemia, low hormone production, levels of “bad” (malformed) hormones/proteins, “bad” (malformed) cholesterol, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, hypoadrenalism, hyperadrenalism, cystic fibrosis, many other ‘birth defects’, congenital malformations, infant and fetal deaths, cancer, bone and muscle degenerative conditions, shortened lifespan, heart/cardiovascular disease, heart attack, stroke, allergies, respiratory illness, C.O.P.D., bronchitis, asthma, emphysema, kidney disease, liver disease, hearing and visual problems, and the list goes on.

These things happen gradually over time, so we do not suspect we are slowly being poisoned. (See Ref 10 for neurological diseases being caused by copper deficiency.)

The “copper overload” disease or “copper toxicity syndrome” is caused by copper deficiency. This phenomenon is characterized by the presence ofbiounavailable or unbound copper accompanied by low levels of the copper transport protein ceruloplasmin. Due to the biounavailability of much of the copper, the body cannot accomplish the tasks of building, repairing, and healing to normal levels, resulting in symptoms and disease states.

This phenomenon further emphasizes the importance of copper’s function in the body. However, based on the biounavailable copper, this phenomenon is routinely erroneously described as the presence of toxic levels of copper, when in fact it should be described as diminished levels of ceruloplasmin ~ MISSING PROTEINS due to copper deficiency. Copper in its natural, untampered with form is essentially non-toxic and any excess is readily excreted from the body.

Man-made alloys such as “copper pennies” and “copper water pipes” do NOT replenish copper, and in fact further deplete copper levels. “Copper” pennies are 97.5% zinc. “Copper water pipes/lines” do not replenish copper levels because ALL the water sources have been saturated with literally thousands of copper depleting poisons, so any copper that may be picked up from the water flow is negated. Furthermore, the idea of using copper water pipes/lines was concocted to provide a link or explanation for the fraud “copper toxicity syndrome”. This is apparent in fraudulent documentation that routinely mentions copper water pipes/lines in conjunction with “copper toxicity syndrome”.

Hair analysis results have been used to erroneously identify “copper toxicity”. Hair analysis reveals what is being excreted out of the body. The copper in hair analysis can show varying levels of copper output depending on an individual’s release of copper (individual biological response to disease states) and the types and amounts of copper depleting poisons that are being taken into the body. Regardless of the copper level output in a hair analysis, a presence of mineral imbalance indicates copper deficiency.

Sufficient copper levels are essential in neutralizing the blood pH, by removing toxic metals/minerals and retaining and balancing the nutrient minerals.

“Survival of the Fittest” = Survival of the Unpoisoned

Copper Depleting Poisons: If the food and food chain were untainted and did not have any poisons, we would not be copper deficient. ALL the food now contains copper antagonists, blood thinners, alkaline chemicals, and copper binders, so that any copper that may have been present is negated. They have been depriving and depleting us of this most important nutrient, which must be acquired through the diet.

We were born copper deficient, not because we were created with “genetic defects”, but because we have been slowly poisoned over the generations with copper depleting poisons. All the proof is self evident in the stores. There are thousands of these ingredients in everything we consume, and put on our skin.

EVERY item has a combination of copper depleting poisons. One popular ingredient added to MANY foods and beverages is corn syrup, (which contains mercury), is specifically known to deplete copper from the body, and has been positively associated to diabetes prevalence and heart failure. (Refs 13 & 14)

Even “nutritional” supplements are loaded with copper depleting poisons. Note that some are stacked with vitamins, which are not required for supplementation, since the body produces its own. Vitamins deplete copper. One cannot get a copper supplement to boost levels of copper – they have ALL been prepared in an alkaline base or other chemical that negates the copper.

Some of the Genetically Modified (GM) foods have been modified by changing an acidic protein to an alkaline protein or by raising the pH level above that of copper (5.5), by inserting additional alkaline amino acids into the sequence, thereby negating any copper that was contained in the food.

Other protein foods have been modified by adding additional sulfur amino acids into the amino acid sequences. Sulfur binds with copper and pulls it out of the body, thereby depleting copper status.

A wonderful way to ingest copper! Drink lots of tea.

This is the purpose of GM foods, to deprive and deplete us of the mineral copper, and to do further genetic DNA damage to the body structures, tissues, and blood.

The “Mad Cow” disease that is widespread is from copper deficiency – (Ref 10). This is another way they deprive and deplete us of copper, by depriving and depleting the entire food chain of copper. They claim the populace gets plenty of “copper rich” foods, but when examining the list, these foods are known to be very rich in sulfur. (Foods Rich in Sulfur)

Vaccines are loaded with toxins that deplete copper from the body, specifically targeting the liver, where the greatest percentage (~10%) of the body’s copper is stored and much of the protein synthesis takes place.

Mercury is contained in many if not most vaccines, in addition to food and food chain. The primary accumulation points in the body for mercury are the brain and liver, displacing and depleting copper in those locations, causing massive DNA damage, (accompanied by devastating neurological dysfunction), by disrupting normal protein synthesis.

Radiation is extremely damaging to the body because it quickly depletes copper, while simultaneously raising the requirements for copper in the body. Radiation quickly and effectively breaks down the body at the cellular level causing massive DNA damage.

More specifically, the damage occurs in the proteins, particularly in the blood, in which the hydrogen bonds that hold the proteins together are destroyed. (Note: This is how radiation, in addition to other poisons, compromises the blood-brain barrier.) Copper maintains a balanced pH of 7.00, providing the proper concentration of hydrogen in the blood.

Therefore, since 95% of the population is already severely deficient in copper, this radiation will quickly deplete what copper is remaining resulting in severe symptoms and/or death.

In other words, radiation expedites the onset of all the “diseases” and symptoms mentioned previously. Some additional more subtle signs of radiation poisoning:



heart palpitations, (any abnormal heart beat),


digestive disturbances,

bowel problems,

inability to stay asleep,

hair loss,

loss of pigmentation in hair,

any signs of increased or accelerated aging,

joint pains,

vision and hearing problems,

ringing or humming in the ears,


reduced ability to concentrate,

short term memory loss,

tingling/tightening of the scalp and other parts of the body,

dry or brittle skin/hair,

increased severity of pre-existing symptoms or disease.

Sources of radiation: WI-FI (wireless internet), computers, wireless CPU cards, wireless USB modems, wireless routers, television, high power lines, depleted uranium, cell phones, cell towers (nodes of the overhead/satellite wireless configurations) mammograms, and other sources of man-made radiation.

Cell tower coverage now extends to virtually the entire land mass of the U.S., and other countries.

Additionally, WI-FI is being installed everywhere now, even in fast food restaurants and campgrounds, schools, businesses, nursing homes/assisted living centers, overnight accommodations, libraries, universities, airports, flights, and many other places, making dangerous radiation exposure compulsory for everyone.

Tenants unaware of the radiation dangers are having wireless installed in most if not all apartment buildings/complexes, and if only one tenant gets wireless (WI-FI), everyone else in the building is getting exposed, because the waves travel up to 300 feet (and greater depending on equipment) in all directions.

The wavelength range for WI-FI, 12.07 – 12.43 centimeters, overlaps the wavelength of microwave ovens which use primarily a wavelength of 12.24 centimeters. The wireless industry is not providing warnings on the dangers of radiation exposure and claim to have no knowledge of these dangers, although there is vast evidence and information to the contrary.

In September of 2007, Germany issued a nation wide alert for all its citizens to avoid or stop using WI-FI and cell phones. It is a known fact that human radiation experiments were conducted from the 1940’s to the 1970’s by the US government to determine the distance and duration required to kill or seriously injure different age groups of the population, ranging from toddlers to adults, so yes, they are totally aware of the dangers.

Furthermore, there is no evidence proving that wireless radiation is harmless. (Research links: Radiation Poisoning of America, RF heating of body tissues and possible DNA alteration (mutation) happens to 100% of the people exposed to RF; too many sites to list)

Due to the fact that copper is such a wonderful physical conductor of electricity and heat, it is also considered the conductor of the spiritualist's belief system. According to myths, copper has the ability to conduct spiritual energy back and forth between individuals, crystals, auras, the mind and the spirit.

The Poisoners and population Reduction:

How did they manage to pull off such a successful, massive poisoning campaign, and deceive everyone on the different blood types and diseases?

Not only did our Grandparents eat healthier foods, the cooked it in healthier materials. Consider the goodness of copper versus the toxicity of "teflon". So what if it coated space craft?

They are one entity coordinating and cooperating with many, they possess great wealth, and they have many fronts.

They own/control ALL the food and food processing entities, personal care products included, and everything that manufactures poisons, and they have a monopoly on the wireless industry.

They successfully sneak the poisons into the food and food chain, because they control every level and function of our government – every agency, organization, the administration, congress, house, all the political parties, FDA, AMA, CDC, USDA, FCC, naturopathic and alternative health care community, their “research” institutions and foundations, and the list goes on.

They have agents and fronts to control us and control what goes into our food and food chain.

It’s all about control, greed, keeping our minds weak, and decreasing our lifespan.

This is how they have been accomplishing their goal of population reduction.

This is the abomination that causes desolation


spoken of through the prophet Daniel.

Their fronts, agencies, and corporations benefit and profit greatly from what they do. Yes, they are all connected – that is why they are successful in what they do. Through taxation we pay these people who allegedly represent us, and who give their authority to all these fronts to approve the poisons, without the consent or knowledge of the people.

The Constitution does not give authority to our government representatives to lie to us and deceive us, nor does it give authority to the government to act without the consent of the people.

The government is supposed to be looking out for the best interests of the people it represents. When this is no longer the case, as we now know, the government ceases to be the rightful, legitimate government, and as such it is time to abolish the entire government.

The poisoners are playing God.

They rebel against God and everything that is God and truth.

They hate God and they hate the Christ.

They are of that line that we’ve been warned against

time and time again…they are of the line

that was disinherited 2000 years ago.

They do not worship the One and Only True God,

our Father in Heaven.

They worship that which is evil

— demons, idols, and earthly material things.

They are anti-Christ – they are many.

They are not of the line that authored the books of the Bible.

If they were of this line they would adhere to and live

by the laws and writings of His servants and the prophets,

and would be Christian Jews today.

But these Jews are not Christian Jews

because they had no hand in writing the Word.

(Though, they have tampered with some

of the books in order to fulfill their agenda.)

In defiance of God they authored

their own self fulfilling laws and rituals

as found in their books of Talmud and Kabala,

those books that go back to an ancient place and time

– to Babylon.

Today they are known as Illuminati, Elite,

proponents of their “New World Order”,

and other secret sects and secret societies.

These secret groups derive their workings,

rituals, symbolism, and traditions from the Talmud and Kabala.

They work in secrecy,

for the people will be repulsed

and angry at what they do.

They are liars, murderers, thieves, deceivers,

and they destroy the earth and mankind.

They Proclaim To Be God: Remember what you have been told in generations past, for the time has come and the lawless ones have now been revealed.

They exalt themselves over everything that is called God or is worshiped, and they set themselves up in God’s temple proclaiming to be God, by claiming to be direct descendents of God through the blood — the blood of Jesus Christ.

The blood type found on the Shroud of Turin, the suspected burial cloth of Jesus, is blood type AB, which “matches” the poisoners’ blood type, and thus, their DNA. Everyone else with blood types of A, B, and O have damaged DNA/proteins .

(We were ALL created with blood type AB negative with normal healthy protein/DNA properties; their poisons have mutated us into the other “blood types”.)

This is how they proclaim to be God, the “Chosen Ones” and “the 144,000”, by their blood type/DNA matching the blood type found on the Shroud of Turin. They try to change the set times in their favor.

Through one of their secret groups, Prieure de Sion (Priory of Sion), they perpetuate the blasphemous story of the bloodline of Christ.

Their claim is that Jesus bore a child/children and these children became royalty in Europe and the bloodline now has many descendants.

Princess Diana referred to herself as "the royal broodmare" . There is much evidence that William was bred to fulfill many goals of this group. David Icke has done much to expose this particular scheme. Diana, her name, her exact spot of assassination, were all filled with the type of "magic" these creatures thrive upon to bring about their desired results.

They also claim that everyone else who does not have blood type AB evolved from man-apes (“prehistoric man”), and were not created by God, since the man-apes only have the other major “blood types” of A, B, and O. This is to glorify themselves and exalt themselves above everyone else

So, be watchful for those playing God, performing staged counterfeit “miraculous” healings and cures, by selectively administering the remedy – copper.
As far as I knew, blood pH is around 7.4 regardless of blood type, unless there is an imbalance in the body's buffer pH system:


Blood pH: The acidity or alkalinity of blood. The pH of any fluid is the measure of the hydrogen ion (H-) concentration. A pH of 7 is neutral. The lower the pH, the more acidic the blood. A variety of factors affect blood pH including what is ingested, vomiting, diarrhea, lung function, endocrine function, kidney function, and urinary tract infection. The normal blood pH is tightly regulated between 7.35 and 7.45.

It would be nice to see data regarding this difference of pH between blood types. So I searched for the article's references which seem to be here:


The article says,

A balanced pH of 7.00 is present in blood type AB, which is the only normal blood type, while the pH of the alkaline blood types (A/O) was set up to 7.54 in 2005 and the pH of the acidic blood type B decreased further by the same date.

Clicking on the reference, I find it disappointing:

pH range of blood types:

Where did that came from?

This seems to be the list of references:


Not very encouraging.

The article says:

It is interesting to note that a clinic in the US recently measured blood pH samples of 259 clients, from January 2004 to June 2005, and found the average pH to be significantly higher at 7.54, as of December 2004 – March 31, 2005. (Ref 12)

The reference reads:

12. _ [doesn't work]

The original web site has been replaced with another older web page they had posted else where on their site, with the old pH range of 7.42 - 7.44. This range is from pre-1996 (early 90's), and is not the current range. The current AVERAGE pH range, at least in 2004/2005 was 7.54, which may be even higher than that now. Note on the site how they use the terms "pH balanced" and "alkaline" together as if they have the same meaning. A pH balanced blood is NEUTRAL or 7.00 pH level, not an alkaline reading. The following web page shows the original values that they had posted on the above mentioned web page:


Well, I read thousands of pH blood samples in several countries and didn't saw the above pattern. They are confusing terms as well. Blood pH is regulated to stay above 7 (around 7.4). It is not true that pH balanced blood is neutral at 7, a person with that pH might be dying! It just doesn't make sense to me. Perhaps I'm missing something.

The copper deficiency is interesting though.

From (Sidney MacDonald Baker from Detoxification and Healing was part of the committee of the following report):

Nutritional Status: Most children with autism have a need for increased amounts of
vitamins, minerals, and some amino acids. Zinc is of especial concern, as it is usually
low in autism. Some detoxification agents can remove essential minerals, so additional
minerals will be needed. Anti-oxidant therapy is important to reduce oxidative stress and
to raise glutathione levels. Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, zinc, and selenium are
especially needed, in addition to a broad-spectrum vitamin/mineral supplement. Copper
should be avoided in most cases, since that is usually high.

Magnesium, molybdenum, manganese, vanadium and chromium are all among the minerals that
are often deficient in autistic children; these can be supplied by a multi-mineral supplement. Be
sure that this supplement does not contain copper. Copper is the one mineral that autistic children
often have in excess and additional supplements will only worsen the excess.

This might be due to a zinc deficiency. The heavy metal detox protocol includes zinc. But how about other people? From Beating and Treating Fibromyalgia and CFS:

An FDA study analyzing 234 foods over two years found that the
average American diet contains less than 80% of the RDA of one
or more of the following: calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper,
and manganese. Other studies have demonstrated magnesium
defciency in well over 50% of the population. A magnesium defi-
ciency can contribute to arteriolosclerosis, fatigue, tight muscles,
leg cramps, insomnia, constipation, cardiac arrhythmia, and heart
disease. ...

Low levels of copper, magnesium and man-
ganese may also prevent optimal thyroid function.

But too much sugar has a num-
ber of other extremely damaging efects on the human body:

it can suppress the immune system,
• contribute to mood disorders, including hyperactivity, anxiety,
depression, and concentration difculties—especially in children,
• produce a signifcant rise in triglycerides,
• cause drowsiness and decreased activity in children,
• cause symptoms associated with ADHD, especially in children,
• cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar),
• increase the risk of coronary heart disease,
• lead to chromium defciency,
cause copper defciency,
• upset the body’s mineral balance,
• promote tooth decay,
• raise adrenaline levels in
• lead to periodontal disease,
• speed the aging process, causing
wrinkles and grey hair,
• increase total cholesterol, in-
crease systolic blood pressure,
reduce helpful high density
cholesterol (HDLs), promote an
elevation of harmful cholesterol
• contribute to weight gain and
• contribute to existing diabetes,
osteoporosis, or kidney damage,
• cause free-radical formation in
the bloodstream,
• cause atherosclerosis,
• cause depression,
• increase the body’s fuid
• cause hormonal imbalance,
• interfere with absorption of
calcium and magnesium,
• and increase the risk of Crohn’s
disease and ulcerative colitis ...

Copper toxicity has been implicated in learning and mental disor-
ders and may contribute to increased systolic blood pressure. It is
found in some personal care products.

Copper maintains the myelin sheath, which wraps around nerves
and facilitates nerve communication. It plays a vital role in regu-
lating neurotransmitters and helps maintain the cardiovascular
and skeletal systems as well. It is part of the antioxidant enzyme
supraoxide dismutase and may help protect cells from free-radical
damage. Copper helps with the absorption of iron, and a defciency
in copper can lead to anemia, gray hair, heart disease, poor con-
centration, numbness and tingling in the extremities, decreased
immunity, and possibly scoliosis.
Cadmium, molybdenum, and sulfate can interfere with copper
absorption. A niacin defciency can cause an elevation of copper.
Zinc and copper impair the absorption of one another, so they
should be taken separately. Toxicity: Intake of 20 mg. or more in a
day can cause nausea and vomiting. Wilson’s disease (not Wilson’s
syndrome) is a genetic disorder characterized by excessive accu-
mulation of copper in the tissues, as well as liver disease, mental
retardation, tremors, and loss of coordination.

Excess copper can cause a zinc defciency, and vice versa. Pregnant
women often accumulate excess copper and become zinc-defcient,
which can lead to postpartum depression. ...

In the Inflammation Syndrome by Jack Challem, there is a chart comparing copper levels between our diet and a paleolithic diet:


paleolithic: 12.2 mg/day
current U.S: 1.2 mg/day

Based on 3,000 calories daily, 35% animal and 65% plant subsistence

It is the highest discrepancy in the chart, followed by iron and vitamin C.
Interesting. I tried taking copper years ago (back when I didn't do quite enough research), and it helped briefly...then I ended up feeling slightly crazy so stopped.

Some interesting little threads that I've found (its peaked my curiosity in molecular biology so much I just ordered a copy of Molecular Biology of Metal Homeostasis and Detoxification: From Microbes to Man (Topics in Current Genetics) :P)

This article is pretty interesting (although I'd prefer more references)...just posting a small chunk of it

by Lawrence Wilson, MD

Do you know anyone who suffers from headaches, fatigue, insomnia, depression, skin rashes, spaciness or detachment, learning disorders or premenstrual syndrome? These can be symptoms of a copper imbalance. It is an extremely common nutritional imbalance. It is often overlooked, in part because it is not always simple to detect.

Copper is an essential trace mineral that is vitally important for both physical and mental health. It has been studied for years, including at government laboratories. However, its importance for health is still largely unappreciated. The following article is an introduction to the large subject of copper imbalance. The author is deeply indebted to Dr. Paul C. Eck, an avid copper researcher.


Copper has a number of important functions in the human body. The problem usually occurs when there is too much of it in the soft tissues of the body. Here are some of the important roles of copper:

1. Bones and connective tissue. Copper is required to fix calcium in the bones and to build and repair all connective tissue. This includes the tendons, ligaments, skin, hair, nails, arteries, veins and a few other tissues.
Imbalances can contribute to osteoporosis, bone spurs, and almost all conditions of the skin, hair and nails. Others symptoms related to connective tissue include most cardiovascular problems, tendon and ligament conditions, scoliosis, and other skeletal and structural imbalances as well.

2. Energy production in the cells. Copper is needed in the final steps of the Krebs energy cycle called the electron transport system. This is where most of our cellular energy is produced. Any problem here causes fatigue, depression and other imbalances related to low energy.

3. Immune Response. Copper must remain in balance with zinc. When imbalances occur, one is more prone to all infections, in particular fungal and yeast infections that are so common today. For example, most people have some intestinal yeast if they eat sugars and most people have chronic sinus infections if they have common symptoms such as post-nasal drip and others.

4. The glandular system, particularly the thyroid and adrenal glands. The thyroid gland is extremely sensitive to copper. In part this is due to its nature and how easily it is influenced by the sympathetic nervous system. Common conditions seen with copper imbalance include hypothyroidism and even hyperthyroidism of a particular type that is very common that I all secondary hyperthyroidism. Grave’s disease usually due to stress, copper imbalance and often mercury as well. Anyone with a diagnosis of Grave’s disease or hyperthyroidism should have a hair analysis performed at a lab that does not wash the hair and properly interpreted.

Most often, the problem goes away with a properly designed nutritional balancing program. Reducing all stress and balancing the body chemistry are both required to resolve the condition naturally in my experience. Drugs may be needed temporarily to control the symptoms. Surgery or radioactive iodine treatment and too drastic and not needed, in my experience so far.

5. Reproductive system. Copper is closely related to estrogen metabolism, and is required for women's fertility and to maintain pregnancy. Imbalance can cause every conceivable female organ-related difficulty such as premenstrual syndrome, ovarian cysts, infertility, miscarriages, sexual dysfunctions and more. It affects men less than women in this area, but it may affect men’s potency and sexual drive as well as that of women.

6. Nervous system. Copper stimulates production of the neurotransmitters epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine. It is also required for monoamine oxidase, an enzyme related to serotonin production. As a result, copper is involved deeply with all aspects of the central nervous system. Copper imbalances are highly associated with most psychological, emotional and often neurological conditions. These include memory loss, especially in young people, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and others discussed below.


It is possible for a person to become copper-toxic, copper-deficient or to have a condition called biounavailable copper. The first two of these are fairly easy to understand. Copper is found in certain foods in greater quantity such as meats, eggs, poultry, nuts, seeds and grains. Other foods are quite low in copper such as fruits, in particular. Others that tend to be low are vegetables and some nuts and grains.

Refined food diets are low in copper in many cases. Also, some, especially children, need much more copper than others. This has to do mainly with their metabolic type or body chemistry. Fast oxidizers need more copper while slow oxidizers often have too much. Those who we find are fast oxidizers require a lot more copper. This is a technical area, but it is an observation that holds true in most all cases.

Slow oxidizers often have excessive copper in their bodies. Thus they are far more prone to copper imbalance of this nature. To read more about this technical aspect of copper that is very important for practitioners, read Fast, Slow and Mixed Oxidation on this website.

What is biounavailable copper? In this very common situation, copper is present in excess in the body, but it cannot be utilized well. The reason it occurs is that minerals such as copper must be bound and transported within the body.

Biounavailability often occurs due to a deficiency of the copper-binding proteins, ceruloplasmin or metallothionein. Without sufficient binding proteins, unbound copper may circulate freely in the body, where it may accumulate primarily in the liver, brain and female organs.

When copper is biounavailable, one may have symptoms of both copper toxicity and copper deficiency. Copper toxicity and biounavailability are seen most often. These occur almost always in people who are in the state called slow oxidation. As stated earlier, copper deficiency occurs most often in people who are in the state called fast oxidation. This article uses the words copper imbalance when more than one of the three types of copper problems are possible.

Ok.....what are ceruloplasmin and metallothionein? And what are their roles in the body.

Ceruloplasmin is the major copper-carrying protein in the blood, and in addition plays a role in iron metabolism. It was first described in 1948.[4] Another protein, hephaestin, is noted for its homology to ceruloplasmin, and also participates in iron and probably copper metabolism.


It is an enzyme (EC synthesized in the liver containing 6 atoms of copper in its structure. Ceruloplasmin carries about 70% of the total copper in human plasma while albumin carries about 15%. The rest is accounted for by macroglobulins. Albumin may be confused at times to have a greater importance as a copper carrier because it binds copper less tightly than ceruloplasmin. Ceruloplasmin exhibits a copper-dependent oxidase activity, which is associated with possible oxidation of Fe2+ (ferrous iron) into Fe3+ (ferric iron), therefore assisting in its transport in the plasma in association with transferrin, which can only carry iron in the ferric state. The molecular weight of human ceruloplasmin is reported to be 151kDa.


Like any other plasma protein, levels drop in patients with hepatic disease due to reduced synthesizing capabilities.

* Mechanisms of low ceruplasmin levels:

o Gene expression genetically low: aceruloplasminemia
o Copper levels are low in general:
+ Malnutrition/trace metal deficiency in the food source
o Copper does not cross the intestinal barrier due to ATP7A deficiency in Menkes disease
o Delivery of copper into the lumen of the ER-Golgi network is absent in hepatocyte due to absent ATP7B in Wilson's disease.

Copper availability doesn't affect the translation of the nascent protein. However, the apoenzyme without copper is unstable. Apoceruloplasmin is largely degraded intracellularly in the hepatocyte and the small amount that is released has a short circulation half life of 5 hours as compared to the 5.5 days for the holo-ceruloplasmin.

Mutations in the ceruloplasmin gene can lead to the rare genetic human disease aceruloplasminemia, characterized by iron overload in the brain, liver, pancreas, and retina.


Decreased levels

Lower-than-normal ceruloplasmin levels may indicate:

* Menkes disease (Menke's kinky hair syndrome) (very rare)
* Wilson's disease (a rare copper storage disease)[5]
* Overdose of Vitamin C [*note* exploring the topic of toxic iron build up, large doses of vitamin C also increase the amount of iron absorbed]
* Copper deficiency
* Aceruloplasminemia[6]

Elevated levels

Greater-than-normal ceruloplasmin levels may indicate or be noticed in:

* pregnancy
* oral contraceptive pill use [7]
* lymphoma
* acute and chronic inflammation (it is an acute-phase reactant)
* rheumatoid arthritis
* Angina [8]
* Alzheimer's disease[9]
* Schizophrenia[10]
* Obsessive-compulsive disorder[11]

Metallothionein (MT) is a family of cysteine-rich, low molecular weight (MW ranging from 500 to 14000 Da) proteins. MTs have the capacity to bind both physiological (such as zinc, copper, selenium) and xenobiotic (such as cadmium, mercury, silver, arsenic) heavy metals through the thiol group of its cysteine residues, which represents nearly the 30% of its amino acidic residues.[1]

MT was discovered in 1957 by Vallee and Margoshe from purification of a Cd-binding protein from horse (equine) renal cortex [2]. MTs function is not clear, but experimental data suggest MTs may provide protection against metal toxicity, be involved in regulation of physiological metals (Zn and Cu) and provide protection against oxidative stress. There are four main isoforms expressed in humans. In the human body, large quantities are synthesised primarily in the liver and kidneys. Their production is dependent on availability of the dietary minerals, as zinc, copper and selenium, and the amino acids histidine and cysteine.

Metal binding

Metallothionein has been documented to bind a wide range of metals including cadmium, zinc, mercury, copper, arsenic, silver, etc. Metallation of MT was previously reported to occur cooperatively but recent reports have provided strong evidence that metal-binding occurs via a sequential, noncooperative mechanism [3]. The observation of partially-metallated MT (that is, having some free metal binding capacity) suggest that these species are biologically important.

Metallothioneins likely participate in the uptake, transport, and regulation of zinc in biological systems. Mammalian MT binds three Zn(II) ions in its beta domain and four in the alpha domain. Cysteine is a sulfur-containing amino acid, hence the name "-thionein". However, the participation of inorganic sulfide and chloride ions has been proposed for some MT forms. In some MTs, mostly bacterial, histidine participates in zinc binding. By binding and releasing zinc, metallothioneins (MTs) may regulate zinc levels within the body. Zinc, in turn, is a key element for the activation and binding of certain transcription factors through its participation in the zinc finger region of the protein. Metallothionein also carries zinc ions (signals) from one part of the cell to another. When zinc enters a cell, it can be picked up by thionein (which thus becomes "metallothionein") and carried to another part of the cell where it is released to another organelle or protein. In this way the thionein-metallothionein becomes a key component of the zinc signaling system in cells. This system is particularly important in the brain, where zinc signaling is prominent both between and within nerve cells. It also seems to be important for the regulation of the tumor suppressor protein p53.

Control of oxidative stress

Cysteine residues from MTs can capture harmful oxidant radicals like the superoxide and hydroxyl radicals[4]. In this reaction, cysteine is oxidized to cystine, and the metal ions which were bound to cysteine are liberated to the media. As explained in the Expression and regulation section, this Zn can activate the synthesis of more MTs. This mechanism has been proposed to be an important mechanism in the control of the oxidative stress by MTs. The role of MTs in oxidative stress has been confirmed by MT Knockout mutants, but some experiments propose also a prooxidant role for MTs.

Expression and regulation

Metallothionein gene expression is induced by a high variety of stimuli, as metal exposure, oxidative stress, glucocorticoids, hydric stress, etc... The level of the response to these inducers depends on the MT gene. MT genes present in their promotors specific sequences for the regulation of the expression, elements as Metal Response Elements (MRE), Glucocorticoid Response Elements (GRE),...

Metallothionein and disease


Because MTs play an important role in transcription factor regulation, problems with MT function or expression may lead to malignant transformation of cells and ultimately cancer.[5] Studies have found increased expression of MTs in some cancers of the breast, colon, kidney, liver, skin (melanoma), lung, nasopharynx, ovary, prostate, mouth, salivary gland, testes, thyroid and urinary bladder; they have also found lower levels of MT expression in hepatocellular carcinoma and liver adenocarcinoma.[citation needed]

There is evidence to suggest that higher levels of MT expression may also lead to resistance to chemotherapeutic drugs.[citation needed]


Heavy metal toxicity has been proposed as a hypothetical etiology of autism, and dysfunction of MT synthesis and activity may play a role in this. Many heavy metals, including mercury, lead, and arsenic have been linked to symptoms that resemble the neurological symptoms of autism.[6] However, MT dysfunction has not specifically been linked to autistic spectrum disorders. A 2006 study, investigating children exposed to the vaccine preservative thiomersal, found that levels of MT and antibodies to MT in autistic children did not differ significantly from normal children.[7]

So its entirely possible that copper deficiency/problems (i.e. perhaps the body can't utilise the copper, which leads to more problems as copper builds up in the body) are due to the systems the body uses to mobilise copper (and other minerals) are tied up dealing with mercury and other heavy metals.
RedFox said:
* Overdose of Vitamin C [*note* exploring the topic of toxic iron build up, large doses of vitamin C also increase the amount of iron absorbed]

I've been exploring the topic of toxic iron overload as well; interestingly enough almost all of the symptoms/diseases associated with Cu deficiency mirror those of iron overload or probably more appropriately iron metabolism disorders. Iron, in excess, can cause not only deficiencies with Cu, but also with Zn, or possibly Cu and Zn deficiency allows for excessive iron absorption. Regardless, the three minerals must maintain a delicate balance for a healthy system,... a divine triskele, if you will.

While my emphasis in this reply is with iron, I was compelled to chime in, because of the parallels. It may be premature for the subject of iron toxicity to be brought out now within this is for me, anyway, because I'm still trying to pull it all together; however, due to the far reaching implications in other Diet and Health related issues that iron disorders may have a role, I'm gonna throw out some of what I've accumulated so far. Bear in mind, however, what has already been posted about Cu deficiency. But i think you'll see that iron is really the two-faced culprit here that is "deeply hidden, embedded, covered by many false reports and leads to keep us from learning this crucial key to our health and longevity."

E.D.Weinberg, Ph.D., has been researching iron disorders for over 50 years. He is the author of Exposing the Hidden Dangers of Iron, and founder the the Iron Disorders Institute ( )
He writes on his site:
An iron disorder is any condition of Iron-Out-of-Balance™, which is too much or too little iron for the body to function normally. People with iron disorders can have many vague symptoms or health issues including any one or combination of the following: fatigue, joint pain, bone or joint disease (osteoarthritis, osteoporosis), shortness of breath, irregular heart beat, liver trouble, diabetes, infertility, impotence, depression, mood or mental disorders, poor cognitive skills or neurodegenerative diseases.

After researching a number of other articles about iron metabolism disorders, and spending a lot of time on the institute's website, I ordered his book and am only about half way through, but from what i can surmise is that unbound Fe in the blood is VERY destructive on the molecular level, causing free radical damage, lipid peroxidation, DNA strand breaks/mutations and multiple nutrition deficiencies. Interesting enough is that our cells and tissues that are susceptible to Fe damage, are the same areas that require it for vital functions such as DNA synthesis, oxygen transport and numerous enzymatic processes. Therefore, it must be handled and stored as safely as possible, requiring careful regulation. According to Weinberg, should an excessive quantity be absorbed, it can be excreted only by bleeding. I've found information on two supplements, curcumin and chlorophyll which could be contrary to this assumption. A bit of a side track but interesting is that curcumin, is probably the most well researched nutritional food based supplement in the last 15 years, and has been shown to have numerous benefits with a number of disease processes and acts as a free radical scavenger, hydrogen donor, pro and anti-oxidant activity; in short, it helps in many of the same ailments caused by iron disorders.... and here's the kicker, curcumin has been shown to not only chelate iron and copper, but also to help regulate their metabolism. I'm not suggesting that this "side effect", seen as a negative by researchers, is its only mode of operand i, but it is very curious.

Dr. Weinberg writes:
Iron is life-sustaining, but when in excess in the tissues of the body, iron can be fatal. Since there is no physiological means of excreting excessive iron from the body, except for blood loss[this would include blood donation, menstruation, helminthic infestation/therapy, ulcers and phlebotomy/blood letting], the excess iron accumulates at toxic levels in the heart, liver, endocrine glands and joints. Overwhelmed with iron, these systems can no longer function optimally and the disease process takes over. Arthritis, diabetes, hyper-pigmentation, hepatic cirrhosis; hormone imbalances leading to hypothyroidism, impotence, infertility and premature cessation of menstruation; cancer, infections and early death by heart attack are among the consequences of untreated iron loading

Parts of the book I've read thus far includes a lot of detail about each of these disease processes and whether genetic mutations have been identified. Many patients noted with elevated iron and exhibiting related disease symptoms have not been identified with any of the known mutations. Weinberg admits there is much research to do in order to identify genetic markers. I'm quietly thinking "Good Luck! with that one..." seeing how unbound Fe can cause DNA mutations in the first place!
And this is what has been difficult to find information on... how does Fe get to the state of being unbound and destructive? The acid pH of the blood may be the answer, and this relates to the part about Cu and blood pH as well, I would suppose, since copper also exists in the 2+ and 3+ states.

But some attention should be given to genetic mutations since Weinberg tends to site a lot of studies in regards to numerous recurring genetic mutations found in some, but not all patients studied having conditions attributed to iron disorders of differing degrees. Included is a study which spoke mountains when put into context. It goes as follows:

Hemochromotosis(HHC), once thought to be a rare, older males disease, is now known to be common, to affect both males and females, and to have the potential to be fatal if not detected and treated.

In 1996, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta sent surveys to nearly 3000 individuals diagnosed with hemochromatosis; 80 percent (2851 individuals) responded. Of the 2851 respondents, 67 percent of those with symptoms had been given multiple, various diagnoses prior to receiving the proper diagnosis of hemochromatosis. Among the misdiagnoses were arthritis, gallbladder and liver disease, stomach disorders, hormonal deficiencies, psychiatric disorders, and diabetes. These patients indeed had these conditions, but the true underlying cause of iron overload was missed. Respondents reported that they saw an average of three different physicians and that it took more than 9 years before they received the complete diagnosis of hemochromatosis and the primary cause for their illness: iron overload.

The average age of the patients surveyed was 41. Of those who reported symptoms,
75 percent experienced chronic fatigue,
75 percent experienced joint pain
58 percent reported a loss of libido or interest in sex
44 percent experienced heart irregularities
35 percent reported abdominal pain
30 percent reported no symptoms [?'d think it could only be 25% at most]
17 percent had been found anemic and were prescribed iron supplements
It is still not widely recognized that iron overload can cause anemia, just as iron deficiency can; the mechanisms are quite different, however!
18 percent reported they had taken iron supplements for their health.

Even though the CDC survey included a relatively small sample of the US population, the survey results documented many similarities among patients with hemochromatosis. Patients who participated in focus groups felt that the results of the survey allowed a closer look and a better understanding of a hemochromatosis patient profile. symptoms such as depression, which had not previously been attributed to iron overload, emerged as a major problem for hemochromatotics.

While Weinberg makes a strong case for various identified mutations causing hemochromotosis, he also indicates there are probably other causative mutations yet to be identified. Meaning, many of the those in the general population who exhibit symptoms and diseases related to hemochromotosis, but do not carry the HFE mutation, or the lesser identified ones, may carry mutations in their DNA that cause disorders in iron metabolism.

"Iron is absorbed primarily by villus enterocytes of the duodenum" _ S.A. Harrison and B.R. Bacon (from EtHDoI, by Weinberg, Ph.D.)
From ETHDOI (Weinberg):
...our bodies have evolved and elaborate system of controls for absorption of necessary, but not excessive, quantities of iron. Should an excessive quantity be absorbed, it can only be excreted by bleeding. [Copper, on the other hand, can be excreted via bile into the gastrointestinal tract, so excessive copper is rare.] When iron enters the duodenum, its status greatly influences the degree of absorption. Ferric (Fe3+) is reduced to the soluble ferrous iron (Fe2+) form in the highly acidic environment of the stomach. When stomach acid is low, this change does not take place and absorption is poor.

Just to introduce another element: Dr d'Adamo (author of Eat right for your Blood Type) revealed distinctions between stomach acidity of Type As (low stomach acidity) and Type Os(high stomach acidity) and how this affects the ability to digest animal protein,as well as how much iron is liberated from the food source before entering the duodenum. Set this aside for now, we'll return after we follow Fe into the blood.

Back to ETHDOI(Weinberg):
Just as adequate stomach acid and ascorbic acid enhance the absorption of iron[quantities in the range of 1500 mg have been shown to decrease copper levels. PDR, Hendler], certain substances, especially tannin, fiber, and calcium, can impair absorption, as can defects in newly discovered proteins. [ there's been plenty of research supporting the health benefits of increasing dietary fiber, which is also the source of IP6, a fancy name for phytic acid, which may prove beneficial for some (blood type As?) despite the bad rap its recieved]

A critical site of control of absorption is contained in the epithelial cell lining of the duodenum. In this region, specialized enterocytes have developed that are capable of responding to the body's needs for iron as well as to the danger of acquiring too much metal. The enterocytes absorb iron from the diet by several mechanisms

The mechanisms he explains get quite involved, but suffice it to say that non-heme iron is more complicated and inefficient than heme iron absorption. Heme iron is in a form readily absorbed. Continuing with his description:
The enterocytes are destined to detach from the intestine and to be excreted in the feces. But before they detach, they must decide how much of their absorbed iron should be passed into the bloodstream. In healthy adults on a well-balanced diet, only 10 percent of the iron is sent into the blood.

The export of iron from the enterocyte into the bloodstream involves several pathways. These include mechanisms catalyzed by the proteins located on the basolateral surface of the enterocyte: ferroportin, hephaestin, ceruloplasmin, and the transferrin receptor-HFE complex. [plenty of places to go wrong] Of these, the latter has been the most clearly characterized.... the transferrin receptor strongly binds the transferrin protein that is circulating in the blood serum. The binding enables transferrin to acquire iron from the enterocyte. In normal individuals, the HFE protein in the serum competes with transferrin for binding to the receptor, and thus it blocks excessive conveyance of the iron from the enterocyte to the serum. Unfortunately, in HHC [one of the two different gene mutations] results in an altered structure of HFE and may decrease its stability so that HFE is less efficient in binding to the many persons with these mutations, absorption of dietary iron can be increased two- to threefold....The role of the multicopper oxidases, ceruloplasmin and hephaestin, as primary ferroxidases converting Fe2+ to Fe3+ has yet to be fully delineated as they play a role in iron trafficking and homeostasis.

Transferrin - transporter and withholder of iron

The transferrin molecule can bind two atoms of iron. The protein has two functions - it transports iron through the body fluids,such as serum, lymph, and cerebrospinal fluid, and it also withhold iron form invading microorganisms. Normally, its iron-carrying capacity (saturation) is between 25 percent and 30 percent. During infection, its saturation can decrease to as little as 5 to 10 percent, which increases its ability to suppress microbial growth. In iron-loading conditions, saturation can increase to as much a 100 percent. Persons with saturation values above 40 percent are much more susceptible to many kinds of infection.
[....the transferrin travels around until it finds a transferrin receptor site on those body cells that need iron.]
The The complex then enters the cell and diffuses to an organelle called an endosome that has an acidic pH value. At the low pH, iron dissociates from transferrin. The receptor conveys the iron-free transferrin molecule to the cell surface to enable it to enter the serum and repeat its iron transport function. I can repeat delivery of iron over 100 time during its existence.

Ferritin - packager of hazardous iron

The iron atoms that have been deposited in the endosome will then be diverted either into metabolic functions or into storage in ferritin within the cell. Ferritin is a very large spherical structure with a spacious cavity that can accommodate as many as 4500 atoms of iron. As ferritin molecules become satiated with iron, they are transformed into hemosiderin. The latter is an insoluble amalgam of degraded proteinand ferric hydroxide. Although hemosiderin is highly effective in packaging dangerous amounts of iron, accumulation of excessive quantities of amalgam can interfere with normal cell functions, and ultimately result in cell death.

The productionof ferritin is increased during inflammatory conditions such as infection or cancer in order to withhold as much iron as possible from invading cells. Ferritin production is also increased in persons with iron loading. In some patients, serum iron and transferrin saturation may remain low but ferritin becomes highly elevated.

Hepcidin - a coordinator of enterocytes and macrophages

Clearly there needs to be communication and coordination among numerous cells and proteins that are responsible for adjusting optimal levels of iron as we progress through various states of growth, illness, good and poor nutrition, pregnancy, aging, etc. The chemicals assigned to these tasks generally are molecules much smaller than proteins and are termed cytokines or hormones....[or more specifically] interleukins and interferons....A hormone that has specific action of iron traffic is called hepcidin. A lack of hepcidin has been associated with iron overload and over expression of hepcidin results in iron-deficiency anemia in mice. .

At the start of a microbial invasion, a cytokine called interleukin-6 signals the patient's hepatocytes to elavate production of hecidin and secreete it into the bloodstream. The peptide then acts at two sites; it 1) suppresses enterocyte secretions of dietary iron into the blood and 2) stimulates macrophages to retain iron tthat these white blood cells have extracted from hemogloin of aged red bloood cells. These two action lower the level of transferrin saturationand result in increased feritin syntheses within macrophages. When the infection danger has passed, hepcidin syntheses is decreased.

Moreover, hepcidin synthesis isinreased not only in response to microbial invasion but also to nutritional iron loading. Also, production of the hormone is lowered in iron deficiency. Unfortunately, however, in HHC, hepcidin synthesis is severely depressed. Thus in HHC not only is excessive iron absorbed from the enerocytes, but also macrophages fail to retain the surplus metal

Lactoferrin is found in human secretions such as tears, perspiration, vaginal fluid, seminal fluids, and breast milk. Lactoferrin binds with iron, but it is not considered a transporter of iron; instead lactoferrin's role is entirely defense related. Lactoferrin can withhold iron from invading microorganisms. However, H.pylori, a cause of gastric ulcer, actually seeks out lactoferrin-bound iron gives H.pylori its initial nourishment, enabling the microorganism to bore through the stomach wall, where it will then obtain iron directly from heme.

[ hope you've been able to follow thus far, this IS leading to something]

Free or unbound Iron, hemosiderin and free-radical activity

Normally, transferrin is about 25-35 percent saturated with the metal, but when too much iron is present for transferrin to carry, trouble can develop. Transferrin molecules that are heavily saturated lose the ability to tightly bind iron. Unbound or free iron is highly destructive and dangerous. Unbound iron can trigger free-radical activity, which can cause cell death and destroy DNA. Free iron can also provide nourishment for pathogens such as Yersinia[ flag!], Listeria, and Vibrio bacteria. Many strains of these bacteria are harmless for people with normal iron levels, but when transferrin is highly saturated with iron the invaders can readily multiply to cause disease and death.

Like transferrin, iron-loaded ferritin can also become ineffective. Think of ferritin like a big sink; when this sink gets full, ferritin and its iron can be changed into an insoluble substance called hemosiderin.

Hemosiderin is like rust and can accumulate in cells of the heart, liver, lungs, pancreas, and other organs, restricting theirability to function. For example when beta cells (insulin-producing cells of the pancreas) are loaded with hemosiderin, these cells become unable to produce or store adequate amounts of the hormone insulin, which results in diabetes.

Unfortunately, excess iron that is not trapped by ferritin or bound to other proteins can catalyze production of free radicals. The latter can depolymerize polysaccharides, cause DNA strand breaks, inactivate enzymes, and initiate lipid peroxidation. Consequences include disease, premature aging, and death.

Well, we certainly can understand why we need so many anti-oxidant supplements and fish oils, now.

Bill Sardi wrote an e-book titled The Iron Time Bomb, which I bought and downloaded, but wasn't very impressed... he isn't much of a writer, but did have lots of references. However, on his website he has some interesting photos of iron loaded liver and brain of a dementia patient showing iron deposits.

Now, returning to Dr. D'Adamo Blood Type Diet; there seems to be a connection. I would love to see these two Drs put their heads/research together to see what they come up with.

Recall how transferrin, loaded with two Fe molecules, takes off looking for somewhere to bind? Remember, the Fe molecule dissociates from transferrin in acidic pH environment. Well, if it can't find any receptors , and it happens to be in, say, the blood of a Type A person, who according to Dr. D'Adamo has blood on the acidic side, could it be possible that the transferrin could release its Fe prematurely as an unbound Fe free radical/DNA destroyer? D'Adamo tells of the increased risk for cancer, diabetes and heart disease in type As, but an increased resistance to infections. Whereas in type O, having a more alkaline blood pH, the Fe bound transferrin would make it to a receptor or storage destination, which means anywhere, where it would be stored until an nasty iron loving infection causing pathogens comes along. Type O's, are the predominant sufferers because their immune systems are "environmentally intolerant." I only chose these two blood types because they are at the opposite spectrum. Being blood type A, myself, I quickly took notice of these implications since both my parents died in their early sixties of cancer, despite having two sets of grandparents who lived in to their late 80's and 90's. What's going on?

It's beginning to appear as though iron is the elephant in the room that's painted gray.
Despite the mass amount of evidence pointing at that elephant and the destruction it is causing, no one in the position to change policies sees it, and if they do, don't care to change it on the grounds that "anemia is the most common nutritional-related problem in the world".

At first, I was focused on the FDA mandated fortification of processed flours and cereals, and how it could be an evil plot to degrade the bodies and minds of the world... "Get your full day supply of vitamins and minerals in one bowl of Total", which includes 18mg of iron! This is a magnetic form of iron, reduced iron or sometimes FeSO4(ferrous sulfate, also known by chemist as green vitriole) Up until this past year, I'm not sure I have ever heard that word, vitriole, mentioned so many times in connection with right-wing politics.
Coincidence? maybe...
but getting back to iron fortification... trying to find the history of its origins, or the studies sited to determine how much of each nutrient our bodies need, or how the RDAs were determined, are nearly impossible to find. An organic farmer friend defines RDA as: Really Dumb Advice. I tend to agree.

The following quote is from an article indicating that developing countries could introduce fortified foods through military purchases:

Dr. Bishai and co-author Ritu Nalubola, examined the major waves of food fortification in the United States, which include the iodization of salt in the 1920s, fortification of milk with vitamin D in the 1930s, enrichment of flour and bread in the 1940s, and the wide spread addition of calcium to a variety of products beginning in the 1980s. For salt, milk, and bread, food fortification was accomplished by establishing the health benefits through scientific research and enlisting the support of food manufacturers. In most cases, manufactures found the measures to be profitable after appealing to consumers with advertising and public service campaigns. Widespread compliance was often achieved through market demand rather than through government mandates. Governments are often large food purchasers and can influence industry.
The full article can be read here:

So now, we have the humanitarian effort by WHO, to supply fortified food to underdeveloped countries, through military purchases. While nutritional status may improve in the short term, this form of fortification is unhealthy to sustain, according to Dr. Bernard Jensen, author of The Chemistry of Man, as can be witnessed in current health trends.

Is there a conspiracy or some master plan? May seem so, in part, however, referring to the human experiential cycle and what is and has been going on in our cosmic environment, iron fortification may only be part of the insult.

Remember the red flag sent up with the Yersinia bug? Yersinia pestis was responsible for the plague. Yersinia is an iron loving pathogen, and according to Dr. D'Adamo, appeared to hit and nearly wipe out those of blood type O, suggesting possibly that people have been iron loading intermittently throughout history. Well, there wasn't iron fortification of food back then; they were probably cooking in cast iron; but what about cosmic events such as meteor bursts that may have added atomized iron dust to the atmosphere. Iron atoms, according to Dr. Weinberg, can be inhaled from tobacco smoke, environmental pollutants, and other work environment hazards were iron compounds are made aerosol, quickly adding to the iron burden, especially in respiratory tissue.

Awhile back when I first started checking this iron/magnetite business out, I began with Webster. Their definition of the Iron Age follows:
1 a phase of many human cultures, often following a Bronze Age, characterized by the introduction and development of iron tools and weapons; Europe beginning c. 1000 BC 2. Gr and Rom. Myth. the last and worst age of the world, characterized by wickedness, selfishness, and degeneracy.
Are we still in the Iron Age, but just the tail end of it? Looking at the news and how polarized factions have become, it would seem so.

While searching for something I remember reading about a dark cloud preceding the plague (help, please) Could only come up with this.

"Europe's "Little Ice Age" may have been triggered by the 14th Century Black Death plague, according to a new study. "
SAY WHAT? shouldn't that be the other way around? Other sources I recall reading, introduce the hypothesis that meteoric/cometary event may have precluded the plague. An event as such, which would have spewed atomic minerals into the air, could have set the stage for iron-loading and rapid infection... especially in those with type O blood type. For those it didn't kill, the excess iron accumulated may have caused numerous mutations in the iron metabolic components.
Just an idea that cropped up while making my way through Weinberg's book.

The meteor page continues to grow, and more evidence mounts toward a comet visitor. Is increasing cosmic dust also loading our atmosphere with atomized iron?
Maybe there's something to the copper deficiency rant in a round a bout way; one thing for sure, there is a definite link between the excess of iron and the deficiency of copper. Whether adequate copper prevents iron excess or dampens its effects seems a possibility. As a personal anecdote, I have been taking chlorophyllin, a chlorophyll that's been altered by removing the magnesium and replacing it with copper to make it water soluble. I felt a noticeable difference a couple days after I started taking it a month ago, and continue to feel improvement in mood and memory and PMS is practically non-existent. While i felt anemic, I don't have any lab work to help understand these subjective changes scientifically.

The importance of copper is not the issue, but the cause of the deficiency appears to be the real issue. And the cause of the deficiency, if it is iron excess, could have conspiratorial underpinnings,...or it could be just a part of the cosmic cycle and a sign of the times.

copper is unable to function as an essential nutrient for cancer cells.

[According to The PDR for Nutritional Supplements (Sheldon Paul Hendler, PhD., M.D., etc) "Excessive intake of non-heme iron may decrease copper status"
Vaccines are loaded with toxins that deplete copper from the body, specifically targeting the liver, where the greatest percentage (~10%) of the body’s copper is stored and much of the protein synthesis takes place.

Mercury is contained in many if not most vaccines, in addition to food and food chain. The primary accumulation points in the body for mercury are the brain and liver, displacing and depleting copper in those locations, causing massive DNA damage, (accompanied by devastating neurological dysfunction), by disrupting normal protein synthesis.

Radiation is extremely damaging to the body because it quickly depletes copper, while simultaneously raising the requirements for copper in the body. Radiation quickly and effectively breaks down the body at the cellular level causing massive DNA damage.

More specifically, the damage occurs in the proteins, particularly in the blood, in which the hydrogen bonds that hold the proteins together are destroyed. (Note: This is how radiation, in addition to other poisons, compromises the blood-brain barrier.) Copper maintains a balanced pH of 7.00, providing the proper concentration of hydrogen in the blood.

Therefore, since 95% of the population is already severely deficient in copper, this radiation will quickly deplete what copper is remaining resulting in severe symptoms and/or death
I switched to drinking out of a copper mug on the recommendation of my doctor, who noted that my copper level was slightly low on the lab results.
Thanks to hiat‘s post. I ordered one Copper Mug for myself to test out for experiments.

However, according to Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology,
Copper in the Western diet has been decreasing at least since the 1930s; half of the adult population consumes less than the amount recommended in the European Communities and the United Kingdom. At least one fourth of adults consume less than the estimated average requirement published for the United States and Canada.

Why do people drink out of copper mugs?​

Long ago, people in the Far East found that water stored in copper vessels tasted better and kept fresh longer. Scientists discovered that copper has an oligodynamic effect — which means copper can kill bacteria. It also kills viruses, algae, mold, spores, and fungi.

What are the health benefits of copper?​

Drinking water out of a copper cup has many health benefits. Here are 15 of them, in no particular order:

Copper kills bacteria.​

Like mentioned above, copper is oligodynamic and can destroy bacteria, including E.coli and S.aureus — two common bacteria that cause serious illness. Copper also helps prevent bacteria that causes diarrhea from drinking bad water. In fact, drinking out of copper vessels is one way for countries with poor sanitation systems to enjoy cleaner water, and thus keep healthier.

Copper improves your digestive system.​

According to ancient Indian Ayurvedic teachings, drinking water stored in copper vessels (such as a copper water bottle or a copper water cup) first thing in the morning on an empty stomach detoxifies and cleanses your digestive system.

Copper strengthens your immune system.​

Copper has antioxidant properties. Antioxidants help decrease free radicals which are harmful to the immune system. Drinking water from a copper cup routinely can boost your antioxidants and, therefore, boost your immune system. And because copper helps eliminate harmful bacteria, your immune system doesn’t have to work as hard — which will also keep you healthy.

Copper increases your energy level.​

Copper helps make an important enzyme in the body called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is basically energy. When you drink water from a copper cup, you are providing copper needed for your body to make more energy.

Copper balances your thyroid.​

Not having enough copper in your system (copper deficiency) can cause your thyroid gland to regulate hormones improperly. Drinking water from a copper vessel provides the copper needed by the thyroid gland to stay balanced and function properly.

Copper improves your brain function.​

Copper is needed to make phospholipids, a type of fat (lipids) used to give cells form and to build a protective barrier around them. Of all your organs, the brain has the highest concentration of lipids.

These lipids help electrical impulses shoot from nerve to nerve, giving signals to the rest of the body, telling it what to do. They also help with memory storage.

Changes in lipid levels may lead to problems in the brain, such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD), the most common type of dementia among older people.

Copper decreases your risk of cancer.​

Copper has antioxidants which fight off free radicals. Studies show free radicals in large amounts damage the body’s cells which can then lead to cancer. Antioxidants help neutralize these free radicals preventing them from causing damage.

Copper helps your heart and blood pressure.​

Copper helps prevent plaque from accumulating in the coronary arteries, decreasing your risk of heart attack. Copper also helps your blood vessels dilate, which improves blood flow to the heart and helps regulate your blood pressure.

Copper helps protect your liver.​

Copper deficiency appears to be a factor in Non-Alcoholic Fatty-Liver Disease (NAFLD), a syndrome where fat cells replace healthy cells in the liver, causing other metabolic problems.

Copper helps prevent anemia.​

Copper helps the body absorb, use, and maintain iron — preventing anemia.

Copper decreases joint inflammation and arthritic pain.​

Copper has anti-inflammatory properties which may help relieve aches and pains caused by inflamed joints — such as in arthritis

Copper helps heal wounds.​

Enzymes use copper to produce new cells in the body, particularly new skin cells, which is key for tissue healing. Since copper also has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, copper helps wounds heal faster.

Copper slows down signs of aging.​

Copper has antioxidant properties which fight off free radicals, one of the main causes of fine lines in the skin. Since copper helps produce new, healthy skin cells to replace the old dying ones, it helps you look younger.

Copper helps strengthen hair.​

Copper is used by enzymes to make melanin, the pigment that creates our skin, hair, and eye colors. Copper also improves circulation at the hair follicle level which promotes hair growth. Having enough copper in the body may help your hair stay lush longer, and slow the inevitable age when your hair turns gray.

Copper promotes healthy skin.​

Copper promotes healthy skin in several ways.

1. First, the melanin that’s beneficial to your hair also helps protect your skin from sun damage.
2. Second, the body uses copper to make collagen and elastin, substances which improve your skin’s elasticity and prevents wrinkles.
3. And third, we’ve already learned copper helps produce skin cells. By replacing old dead cells with supple new cells, copper is key in keeping your skin looking healthy and vibrant

But beware! You have an increased risk of having too much copper in your system IF

  1. You suffer from Wilson’s disease, an inherited disorder that causes copper to accumulate in your liver, brain and other vital organs — but Wilson’s disease is rare.
  2. You drink water from corroded copper pipes, cook acidic foods in copper pots and pans, or somehow ingest powder copper which can be found in occupational or industrial settings.
  3. You drink liquids other than water from a copper mug. Like I mentioned earlier, when you store liquid in a copper vessel, traces of copper leach into the liquid. The amount of copper that leaches depends on the acidity of the liquid. The more acid the liquid, the more leaching occurs.
Here is the translation for the part of the article on copper:

Power supply is almost copper-free
As mentioned, iron recycling depends on copper and retinol, both of which are both of which are lacking in our diet, due to depleted soils.
Copper is then removed by processing and refining. Worse even worse, our food is full of iron, sugar and grain oils (loaded with linoleic acid). (loaded with linoleic acid), and this triad suppresses the function of function of copper and retinol.
For these reasons copper supplementation may be a good idea, especially if you are anaemic, in addition, of course, to reducing or eliminating iron, sugar and seed oils.

The facts about retinol
The retinol is vitamin A, different from beta-carotene. They are two different different molecules, not to be confused, although nutritional
labels often confuse beta-carotene with vitamin A. Vitamin A should also not be confused with retinyl palmitate.
What people believe to be 'vitamin A toxicity' is actually toxicity" is actually a sign of iron toxicity in the liver caused by copper deficiency. What happens is that when you get vitamin A from your diet, whether it's from cod liver oil, beef liver or free range eggs, the retinol is converted to retinyl palmitate and stored in the star cells of your liver.
To function properly, retinyl palmitate must then be converted back into retinol, so that it can be transported on the transthyretin (TTR) protein, which is composed of T4 and retinol. Without the retinol, TTR becomes destructive. Although Morley Robbins cannot yet prove it, he is convinced that copper is necessary for the conversion of retinyl palmitate to retinol.
Retinol is best sourced from whole foods, such as cod liver oil, beef liver, free-range egg yolks (the darker the orange the yolk, the more retinol it contains), cocoa and hot cocoa, and organic butter from grass-fed cows, ghee and heavy cream.

More about copper
The copper also plays an interesting role in energy production.
Your mitochondria produce melatonin in response to natural sunlight, and melatonin in turn catalyses and positively regulates glutathione, which is important for energy production, antioxidant protection against free radical damage and more.
As Morley Robbins explained, glutathione is also the "host" for copper in the cell's cytoplasm. There are two metabolic steps to produce glutathione, and one of the steps involves cysteine, which has a very close relationship with copper.
In addition, a copper-dependent enzyme is needed to convert serotonin to melatonin. Copper also plays a key role in the regulation of immune function.
All of these features are additional reasons to ensure that your copper level is optimal.

How to optimise your copper levels
When it comes to increasing your copper intake, it is best to get your copper from food, not from a supplement.
Good sources include pollen, grass-fed beef liver and other offal. You should also have plenty of saturated fats in your diet, as copper is a fat-soluble mineral.
If you don't have any fat in your diet, your ability to absorb copper will be impaired.
If you choose to supplement orally, Morley Robbins suggests 3 to 4 mg of copper bisglycinate per day, taken with a fatty food (as it is a
fat-soluble mineral). The tolerable upper limit is 10 mg.
This is effective because there is no charge on the molecule and it easily penetrates cell membranes.
If you are a farmer or grow your own food, you can return copper to the soil, for incorporation into the food, by adding copper sulphate. Before planting, simply spray the soil with copper sulphate, 4.5 to 7 kg per half hectare. Alternatively use copper sulphate spray for the foliage. This is what I do.
Most farmers simply use NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium) fertilizer and NPK actually blocks the uptake of copper into the plants, which was pointed out by André Voisin, Ph.D., in his 1957 classic (which, unfortunately, is out of print): "Soil, Grass & Cancer".

Vitamin C may help to increase copper levels
Vitamin C from whole foods can also increase your copper levels, as it contains an enzyme called tyrosinase, which contains 2 atoms of copper. Acerola cherries are an excellent source of this. A single acerola cherry contains about 80 mg of whole food vitamin C.
Ascorbic acid is a pro-oxidant, while the while vitamin C complex is actually an antioxidant.
Anything containing copperwill be an antioxidant.
However, don't make the mistake of taking ascorbic acid, as it is NOT the same as vitamin C found in whole foods. If you were to compare the two to a car, vitamin C would be the whole car, fully functional, and the engine is an enzyme called tyrosinase, whereas ascorbic acid is the chassis of the car, with no moving parts.
It is important to note that ascorbic acid chelates copper from tyrosinase, which is exactly what proton pump inhibitors do.
I think ascorbic acid is a "pharmacomimetic".
Although it is a natural molecule, it has drug-like effects. It acts different from vitamin C, because it is extracted from the vitamin C complex.
For example, ascorbic acid does not prevent or treat scurvy. Only the vitamin C in whole foods can do that.
Ascorbic acid was identified by two scientists who also discovered ceruloplasmin, the main copper carrier protein in your blood in your blood, and ascorbic acid can also affect the structure and copper composition of this crucial copper protein.
The ideal ratio of copper to ceruloplasmin is copper around 100 and ceruloplasmin at 30, giving us a ratio of 3.33. If this ratio starts to increase or decrease, you probably have a developing pathology.
A ratio between four and five often indicates inflammation or infection of some kind. When it starts to drop precipitously, it is a clear sign that there is not enough copper to fuel the function of the ceruloplasmic protein. So, to summarise the key point to remember, if you want to take vitamin C, use vitamin C from whole foods, not ascorbic acid.
Some years ago I took for a while the mix Copper-Gold-Silver from Oligosol brand which is distributed in pharmacies here in France and it seems to me that it was effective against tiredness.

I've a book about trace-elements study in the body. The study was conducted around 1930 if I remember well, by a doctor working at the hospital and so having access to a large amount of patients among a large amount of time (all his career I think). His conclusion was that it was possible to heal almost everything if trace-elements were took in the right order, right amount, all that depending of the degree of the ailment.

The study was suppressed and labelled as false science so I guess he was on something.
Last summer I visited a building belonging to the aristocratic class of Spain from the last century, which is now visited by tourists.

What caught my attention is that everything in the kitchen for cooking was made of copper.

Something that seemed strange to me and that I simply "filed" in my mind, but that makes a lot of sense from this thread.
I think I heard this on a Dr Mercola podcast. He interviewed a man who wrote a book about copper and zinc. The author said, in years past, when a village had a decline in birth rate, they would put copper on the fields that they grew their food in. This solved the fertility problems and babies followed.
Thanks to hiat‘s post. I ordered one Copper Mug for myself to test out for experiments.
Thanks for the post Kay Kim. I bought a copper mug too (and also a copper water bottle), just to see what it was like.. Been drinking my water from it for a couple days so far..Whether I'll see any of the purported benefits, I don't know.. but I like it! So shiny. I particularly love the tinkling sound the water makes when you pour it into the mug, it's pretty :)


Are you taking a zinc supplement? Be sure it’s balanced with copper.

Importance of Zinc​

Zinc, a trace mineral, is commonly lacking in the Western diet and plant-based diets. It can also be readily depleted by several medications. An increased need occurs with puberty and growth, activities that increase perspiration, reproduction and fertility, immune fortification. It is essential for sense of taste and smell, eyesight, hearing, recovery from illness and injury and much more. You can learn more at Zinc Essential for Immunity, Sense of Smell, and More.

Use of supplemental zinc is prevalent. You can find it in many types of supplements, over-the-counter products, lozenges and cough drops, designer drinks, and in personal care products. Supplement levels of zinc range from a few milligrams up to 100 mg or more per day. The minimum recommended intake for men is 11 mg and 8 mg for women per day.

The Zinc/ Copper Ratio​

Zinc and copper have a teeter-totter relationship in your body. You need more zinc than copper, but with long-term supplementation, you generally need both in a healthy ratio. In mineral supplements or a multiple vitamin/mineral product, it is recommended to have a ratio of zinc to copper (Zn:Cu) of 8:1 to 10:1. A combination trace mineral product will often use 25-30 mg of zinc to 3 mg of copper per serving.

Copper: Small Need but Mighty Important​

Copper is a trace mineral used for many things in human physiology. It is especially important for making white and red blood cells and platelets, nerve-muscle connections, nerve conduction, neurotransmitters and brain function that affect speech, movement, balance, sensations, vision, coordination, mood and motivation, bone marrow, and connective tissues integrity with bones, tendons, ligaments, and even blood vessel flexibility and durability.

Copper is necessary for heart function, management of cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, and prostaglandin levels for the heart and circulatory system. Copper is needed for iron absorption. It is involved with brain development, immune system function, and several antioxidant enzymes like superoxide dismutase. Copper is an important trace mineral involved with mitochondrial function, where balanced intake is essential.

Signs of a Copper and Zinc Imbalance

A variety of health concerns may be signs that you have a copper and zinc imbalance. Currently based on the average American’s diet, it is most likely that people are experiencing symptoms resulting from elevated copper levels and a deficiency in zinc. Do you have any of the following symptoms? (5, 8)

  • Night blindness
  • Age related macular degeneration
  • Emotional disturbances
  • Frequent panic attacks and headaches
  • A slow recovery rate from healing ulcers, wounds and even stretch marks
  • A high rate of chronic infections and sickness
  • Mental lethargy or chronic fatigue
  • Gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhea
  • Reduced appetite and weight loss
  • Skin problems such as blisters and roughness

"Dinkov's Dietary Suggestions
In closing, Dinkov reviews some of his top dietary recommendations for optimal health.
No. 1 is keeping PUFA intake below 10 grams; below 5 grams would be even better.
No.2 is to avoid high fructose corn syrup when adding carbs. Stick with the simple sugars from ripe fruit, raw honey (make sure it's not adulterated with high fructose corn syrup, as many are) and/or pure organic cane sugar.
As for the macro composition of your diet, equal amounts of fat, carbs and protein seem to be best for otherwise healthy individuals, so he recommends getting one-third or 33% of your daily calories from each. If you have metabolic problems or some kind of inflammatory disease, he recommends cutting down on fats.
Lower fat intake will also allow your body to digest protein better, as bile acids are
released in response to fat, and bile interferes with the absorption of protein. Next, he recommends adding:

Vitamin E, based on your PUFA intake (as detailed above)
Aspirin or willow bark extract
Niacinamide at a dose of 50 mg to a max of 100 mg, three times a day. In addition
to antiobesity effects, niacinamide will also help synthesize NAD+, which has
important health benefits
Caffeine — BC powder, sold as a headache remedy, contains both aspirin and caffeine. According to Dinkov, research has shown that taking caffeine with aspirin increases the blood concentrations of both and prolongs their effects. Taking 50 mg of aspirin with 50 mg of caffeine can raise your metabolic rate by about 7% and keep it elevated for up to 12 hours
Copper — Copper is the rate limiting factor for cytochrome c oxidase, (Complex 4).
With aging, the amount of copper in that enzyme decreases while iron increases,
and the less copper you have, the lower your metabolic rate. Ideally, get your copperf rom whole foods such as liver, oysters, shrimp or acerola cherry. If using as upplement, bisglycinate is a good option with high bioavailability."

The Dangers of Copper Deficiency and Iron Overload

Story at a glance
+ Iron and copper are highly interdependent and need to be considered together. Low ferritin is rarely indicative of low iron. In most cases, it’s a sign that copper insufficiency is preventing proper iron recycling
+ Copper deficiency will down-regulate several genes, including aldose reductase-1 (which plays a crucial role in glucose and fructose metabolism), glutathione peroxidase (a master antioxidant enzyme), mitochondrial aconitase (involved in iron metabolism in the mitochondria) and transferrin (which mediates the transport of iron)
+ Iron deficiency virtually doesn't exist outside of acute blood loss that is unrelated to menstruation. Unless you have a history of acute blood loss, you are likely dealing with iron recycling dysfunction due to copper deficiency
+ The best way to lower excessive iron is to donate blood. Most adult men and
postmenopausal women have high iron and could benefit from regular blood donation, as high iron is extremely toxic and destroys health
+ To raise your copper level, you could use a copper bisglycinate supplement, or foods like grass fed beef liver, bee pollen and whole food vitamin C
