Want the truth about coral calcium? If so, let’s stop cutting bait and get down to fishin’. You feed dog food to dogs, cat food to cats and fish food to fish. So where, oh where, does coral fit into the human food chain?
I’ve been to restaurants all over the world and I’ve never once seen coral at a salad bar. That should tell you something, don’t you think? If we, as human beings, were meant to eat coral calcium, don’t you imagine we would have been given fins and gills to assist our underwater grazing?
It's time to bring this issue up from the deep, dark, murky depths and hold it up to the light of day. Previously, in “Coral Calcium, Is It Hot or Is It Not,” we focused on the practical aspects of hype marketing behind the product – check it out. This time I’m appealing to your sense of human intelligence. Or, in other words, are we people or are we marine scavengers eating our fill on the seabed smorgasbord?
It’s time we all stop getting caught up in the dragnets of hype marketers. Companies who sell things like calcium from coral are fishing for your pocket book – that’s all. And they use fear and false promises for bait. They have no commitment to your health, because, if they did, they would give you what your human body wants and needs from human food sources.
Have you ever seen what happens to a dog that’s fed “people” food? They become overweight, lethargic and start suffering from degenerative diseases like arthritis and cancer. Dogs aren’t meant to eat “people” food.
Well, folks, we aren’t supposed to consume coral any more than a dog’s supposed to eat Hamburger Helper. Most dog owners know this about their pets, so why don’t they know this about themselves? There are no long-term studies of any safe consumption of coral in any human population on this planet. So, until we find Atlantis and see if they’re eating coral, then I suggest you stay away from it.
On the other fin (just to keep our motif going), we know what happens when humans eat natural, whole food, organic sources of calcium from the human food chain. And we know that there is no danger or harm involved.
Do yourself a big favor with something positive for your health. Whenever you hear of the latest, greatest product, be it Coral Calcium, tree bark or whatever, ask yourself, “Does it make any sense? Are humans meant to eat (fill in the blank)?” You could even ask for the peer review research to find out if it's a grouper or a guppy. And, when in doubt, stop and think to yourself, "Have I ever seen this on a menu or at a salad bar?"
Surf’s up! Class dismissed!
