        I am returning to baking and basics because of health issues. In doing research on the internet as to why I am malnourished when I have access so much I have found that our foods are compromised by irradiation, toxins, Genetic modification and at this point I realize I have just touched the tip of the ice berg. Before yeast we only had sourdough bread cultures, the live culture withstood crossing this continent in wagon trains and just like the hearty people it survived and flourished. What a wonderful heritage we have. When they introduced the instant or quick yeasts developed in laboratories they were able to cut one shift in the bakeries but they did not tell us that when this quick yeast reacted on the starches in the wheat flour it changed it to the exact energy of cancer, and when it reacted to the gluten the end result is that it destroys the villi and causes malabsorbtion of nutrients in the bowel resulting in malnutrition and a myriad of chronic diseases  such as diabetes, auto immune illnesses, cancer and many more. This is not all they did to our bread they substituted bromine for iodine in the bread and the bread flours. The bromine which blocks the absorption of iodine causes thyroid diseases and cancer. ,

    I just love baking and I hope .the members here will help me make  bread and other wheat flour produces that will help me return to good health. Understanding that sourdough products slows the absorption of the whole  meal alleviating some of the stress on the pancreas reducing the fluctuation of the blood sugars for up to six hours, plus it reduces the Glycemic Index of white bread from 100 to 64  what a boast. I have several family members with diabetes and wish to help them as well as not end up there myself. I live in Canada in a rural setting with some acreage, I have a very large organic garden which I share with several family members. I am recuperating from an auto immune disease that almost destroyed both my kidneys and liver.  There is hope thanks to good friends  family and our Creator.  I am looking forward to many more years and wish to thank those who will help in advance.   

 May all our creations bring joy
