Dr Johanna Budwig
Who is Johanna Budwig? This is a interesting question, which I have a small feeling in a few years from now will be known all over the world.
The first interesting fact is that she has been nominated 7 times for the Nobel prize, unfortunately we have to take this on trust as nominees are kept secret for 50 years. Saying that judging by the scientific data available it wouldn’t surprise me if she was nominated, although I am surprised to see that she had not been nominated before 1958 and on this subject I will delve deeper.
Now if you are a believer in conspiracy theories or even politics then it wouldn’t be beyond the realms of possibility that the powers that be would want to suppress this deserved Laureate, still time will tell.
Whatever the case the more you digg deeper the more convinced you become of her credentials.
First I will start with an extract from Wikipedia
Johanna Budwig (30 September 1908–19 May 2003) was a German chemist, pharmacologist and physicist. She developed and promoted (from 1952) the Budwig protocol/Budwig diet, which centres around the regular consumption of foods rich in linolenic and linoleic acids.
The two unsaturated fatty acids have 3 high-energy double bonds (pi-electrons). These fatty acids affect the membranes of cells and are believed to affect oxygen transport and assimilation. Budwig’s concept was that the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids act to repair damaged cell walls and affect chemical communication of cancer cells to the point where they normalize.
Flaxseed oil (cold-pressed, unprocessed) and low fat cottage cheese are the mainstay of Budwig’s cancer diet (also used for heart disease) (cottage cheese has actually become to be used as a more readily-available substitute for the quark cheese which Johanna Budwig had used in her original work).
In addition to the above components, the Budwig diet advocates the consumption of organic vegetable juices (most prominently carrot juice) and polyphenols such as resveratrol(found in red wine). The diet bans consumption of animal and hydrogenated fats, foods high in preservatives, meats, and especially sugar. She advocated the consumption of whole foods which contain antioxidants in their natural form.
Budwig claimed this diet would cure or prevent many forms of cancers, particularly breast and prostate cancer, and a long list of other degenerative disease including cardiovascular diseases and skin diseases.
What did surprise me is how little is written about this remarkable women, particularly with 7 Nobel nominations!
So in my case there is more research to be done, but of the many quotes available on Johanna, the following is one of my favourites.
“Numerous, independent clinical studies published in major medical journals world-wide confirm Dr. Budwig’s findings….Over 40 years ago Dr Budwig presented clear and convincing evidence, which has been confirmed by hundreds of other related scientific research papers since, that the essential fatty acids were at the core of the answer to the cancer problem…You will come to your own conclusions as to why this simple effective prevention and therapy has not only been ignored—it has been suppressed!”
