Stale Food vs Fresh Food - a banned book!

This is a follow you up on my previous note on 1971 addition of the book: "Stale Food vs Fresh Food" which contains the result of some impressive research by an American biologists Robert Ford from Arkansas.

Not surprisingly this book has been effectively banned in the US. As I was unable to find the Author or Publisher to get permission to copy it I decided to have this available to all. Finally for those who have been waiting to get their own copy, it is now scanned and available courtesy of Steve Soloman.

Following is an extraction on the book from "The Medical Racket" Wade Frazer's website at:

"That booklet saved my father's life. The mail stop order made it illegal to send it through the U.S. mail system, effectively banning it in America. In effect, it was similar to the Nazi/Catholic book burnings. Using the U.S. Post office is an effective tactic to wipe out alternative health practitioners. It is only one weapon in the medical establishment's arsenal, but it is an effective one.

One million people per year in America die of vascular disease, and our dietary and health habits are nearly solely responsible for it. The most obvious factors are things such as smoking tobacco and drinking alcohol, but diet may be responsible for most of it.

In short, our bodies are designed to eat live food, as are all animals. We are the only animal that eats dead food, and the diseases we fall prey to are almost unique in the animal kingdom, particularly in their frequency. Living processes provide the nutrition that we get from food. When food is killed, those life processes cease, and it begins decomposing. Enzymes, vitamins and other vital substances can rapidly decompose. When humanity ventured out of its natural range in the tropics, we eventually learned to domesticate plants and animals and preserve food in order to survive the seasons. We have done it so long that it is taken for granted, yet it is not a natural or ideal process.

We have huge industries based upon food processing, and through their wealth and power they have completely obscured the issue of how harmful dead food is to human biology. It is related to the corruption of medical science discussed in this site's fluoridation essay. In the materialistic and reductionistic way that modern science has defined nutrition, a bowl of shredded cardboard sprayed with vitamins (which is close to describing most breakfast cereals) can be more nutritious than a bowl of fresh strawberries"

Here is an excerpt form the mail stop order judgement:

"Although I found that the booklet (Stale Food vs. Fresh Food) contained some helpful suggestions and its author, Mr. Robert Ford, is a knowledgeable and sincere person (i.e. no intent to defraud), I found the representations in the Respondent's booklet to be unproven and contrary to the weight of informed medical and scientific opinion. As indicated by Dr.___, (the only U.S. Post Office medical witness) a danger of this publication is that it will deceive people who have arterio-sclerotic problems into believing that they can cure these problems by diet alone instead of seeking medical (AMA) help. Because the ads and this booklet contain materially false representations, they violate the provisions of 39 US Code Section 3005. Therefore...a mail stop order...should be issued..." - E.S. Bernstein, Administrative Law Judge, (1982)."

Full complaint is at :

Imagine a country which likes to think it is the standard of democracy but still can do this so blatantly. While we have been fed the illusion of freedom of speech - the trick is to let us have this freedom of speech but then turn around and just ignore it and continue business as usual. And we think we are better off than those terrorist countries. What a scam.

Readers' Comments

Is there anywhere one may protest against the banning of this book? If not, I will start a petition myself. I am absolutely not joking. There are thousands of people who know the information contained in this book to be truth, and to see it banned is simply outrageous.

Of course, I may be biased, because I am currently writing a book about this very subject. Yet please, there must have been some angry voices raised on this matter.

I wanted to print out the first few pages to make my book look better but the site is locked now?

The book has not been banned. The book is the subject of litigation right now amongst the heirs of the author. Once the lawsuit is completed, it may be available again. Family did not realize there was demand for the book.
