"Dead Doctors Don't Lie" by Dr. Joel D. Wallach

Man, that is a shocking statement if you don't know why it was made. The implication that our doctor could lie to us sends tremors up many people's spine. I grew up in a neighborhood where many of my good friends parents were doctors and I loved them all and knew them well. I also know they were human. I saw things you don't hear about in the office. I mostly saw honest people.

The book "Dead Doctors Don't Lie" is the result of the experience of Dr. Joel D. Wallach. If you have heard him in a live seminar, on a CD or tape or have read his book you know where the title to the book comes from. I believe that the best way to get the whole story is to read his book but I will try and give you some sense of a shortened version of where it came from.

Doc grew up on a farm in the Midwest. He loved agriculture and went to school and obtained a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture from the University of Missouri in 1962, with a major in Animal Husbandry (Nutrition) and a minor in Field Crops and Soils. In 1964 he was awarded a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.), also from the University of Missouri. Thereafter, he completed a three-year (1965-68) post-doctoral fellowship at The Center for the Biology of Natural Systems at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. In 1982 he obtained a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine (N.D.) from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon. Besides studying in his field he worked in related areas and earned a living for his costs and tuition.

The title "Dead Doctors Don't Lie" was created by Dr. Joel Wallach after years of research on the subject of health and longevity. Dr. Wallach discovered that the life span of the average doctor in America is several years shorter than that of the average couch potato. Dr. Wallach began collecting obituaries of doctors only to find that many were dying of simple nutritional deficiencies. Doc believes if doctors really know the truth about health and longevity they should be living longer than anyone else, not dying sooner. This premature death pattern proves that doctors are missing some key elements when it comes to understanding what it takes to live a longer healthier life, hence was born the title... "Dead Doctors Don't Lie".

Years ago when Dr. Wallach first started giving this message it was very controversial. It is amazing to me that I heard a similar message the other night on the TV show “Boston Legal.” Doc was not credited with the information or was he credited this morning when I heard similar information he has been saying for years given on "NBC Morning News." We are told that we should check with our medical doctor before we do anything that could in any way eventually impact our health. In fact it is mandated by the FDA that anyone without a medical degree can get in big trouble for making any health suggestions to anyone else. The title of Doctor Wallach's book is his way of pointing out that apparently doctors are not trained in all the areas they are given credit for or they would be living longer than the average guy or gal. This assumes they are the fountains of all health knowledge. Doc and "Boston Legal" point out there could also be a financial interest in how our health is dealt with. There is a huge amount of leverage wielded by the medical and pharmaceutical lobbies. In fact Congress has even legislated that the word "cure" cannot be used in regard to Human Beings. Doctor Wallach has spent a lifetime curing animals big and small, domestic to wild beasts. Many diseases we suffer from have been cured in animals and are no longer a problem for them. On the surface it seems it's not in the best financial interest of the human health system for there to be cures. It's more practical for us to have long term care and protocols that last for a lifetime.

Dr. Wallach has done over 17,000 autopsies on 454 species of animals and 3000 humans, researching disease, nutrition and longevity. Doc states that Ninety Five percent of chronic and degenerative disease can be prevented and reversed by giving back to the body the missing basic elements of life. As an expert on soils he further states that food supplies do not contain all the 90 essential nutrients. Agricultural soils have been depleted of the vital minerals that your body needs for optimum health. Plants that we eat cannot make these minerals and are now deficient in them. There is no such thing as "Eating Right." If the minerals aren't in the soil where the food is grown, they are not in our foods. We are full but starving for the vital building materials to maintain a healthy active body and lifestyle.

Dr. Wallach is a fountain of knowledge. I attribute being alive today to hearing his message and acting on what I learned. I know that the products I took, and continue to take, impact my life in a positive way. Doc's message of health is not just for my body but also in regard to our financial health. He not only wants us to be physically healthy but has provided us a way to actually get these life saving products for free and also earn extra money for our financial health. Youngevity has changed my life and I welcome you to also give it a try. Dr. Wallach is on the air daily during the week in the San Francisco area and on under the title "Dead Doctors Don't Lie." He can change your life. Have a great day. Wes
