At a time when health care is bankrupting our country, it is strange that our government and medical profession refuse to learn what we already know.

I have been repeating myself over and over again extolling the importance of the sun and its by-product Vitamin D in reducing the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, depression, and autoimmune diseases by as much as eighty percent. All of this is free, in the presence of adequate sun exposure, or by taking one 2,000 to 5,000 I.U. capsule of Vitamin D3, costing $7.50 to $10.50.

Now we learn that, at a time when obesity, alcoholism, and smoking are increasing, the country of Finland has been able to reduce its incidence of cardiovascular disease and stroke by sixty percent countrywide. Finland did this by ordering all food establishments to switch from regular ordinary salt to a low sodium, high potassium, magnesium salt that also contained the amino acid lysine. This all began in 1994, in Finland, yet no one on America was willing to imitate this great accomplishment. Consider that a sixty percent reduction in heart disease and stroke would mean the saving of 353,000 American lives and billions of dollars of medical expenses.

Well, my friend Dr. Jonathan Wright has now arranged for this Finnish salt to be available in our country and for the nominal sum of $7.60. You merely substitute this salt in your saltshakers and use about a half teaspoon a day in your cooking and at the table.

This substitution is believed to account for an average increase in life expectancy of six to seven years for the Finish people, and all for the investment of one to two dollars a month.
