Jerry Brunetti – Food as Medicine (2/2; 4/9)


In 1999 Jerry Brunetti was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and given 6 months to live. He did not submit to chemotherapy, but rather, developed his own unique dietary approach to enhance his immune system. In this informative video, Jerry shares his personal experiences and provides his recipe for healthy living. You will learn about the crucial importance of minerals, which foods to choose for your best health requirements and what to avoid. After viewing this video you’ll realize the remarkable value of food in building good foundations, and providing buffers, to keep your body healthy.

Topics of the second video include:

Topics include:

  1. The virtue of Cilantro or coriander in mopping up heavy metals in your system as it’s a very effective heavy metal chelator.
  2. The virtue of salicilic acid.
  3. Why eggs are so healthy.
  4. Coconut oil, an extremely healthy and healing oil.
  5. Why cholesterol isn’t bad of and by itself.
  6. Flax seed oil, a great source of omega 3 fatty acids.
  7. The trouble with grains and the benefits of fermented grain (sourdough bread)
  8. Good milk versus bad milk; hyper immune milk and raw milk versus pasteurized and homogenized milk
  9. Good things about butter.
  10. Good things about cholesterol.
  11. Good soy (=fermented soy), Bad soy (=non-fermented soy, such as soy milk).
  12. The virtue of selenium and iodine.
  13. Natural anti-cancerous compounds.

  1. Alexander Fleming Discovers Penicillin

    In 1928, bacteriologist Alexander Fleming made a chance discovery from an already discarded, contaminated Petri dish. The mold that had contaminated the experiment turned out to contain a powerful antibiotic, penicillin. However, though Fleming was credited with the discovery, it was over a decade before someone else turned penicillin into the miracle drug for the 20th century.


  2. William Earl Petersen, 1892-1971: A Brief Biography

    William E. Petersen was “Professor” or “Doctor
    Petersen” to dairy producers, undergraduates, and the
    academic and scientific communities. But his colleagues
    and his almost 100 grad students affectionately
    addressed him as “Doc Pete.” He was fiercely
    Danish and pointed out that names ending in “en”
    were Danish; those ending in “on” were Swedish. Doc
    Pete was born on February 3, 1892, in Pine City,
    Minnesota, and grew up on a dairy farm. He earned a
    B.S., M.S., and Ph.D in 1916, 1917, and 1928,
    respectively, from the University of Minnesota. His
    wife, Alma Agnes Lindstrom, was affectionately
    known as “Mrs. Pete.” They were married in 1917 and
    were parents of five children, three boys and two girls.
    Doc Pete had three true loves: his wife and children,
    his work (academia), and his state (Minnesota). He
    was employed by Kansas State College as a dairy
    extension specialist from 1917 to 1920 and as field
    secretary for the Minnesota Holstein-Friesian association
    in 1910-21. He accepted a faculty position at the
    University of Minnesota in 1921 and remained until
    his forced retirement in 1960.


  3. Simian Virus 40 Found In Human Lymphoma Samples

    ScienceDaily (Mar. 18, 2002) — HOUSTON (March 9, 2002) — Evidence of simian virus 40 (SV40) infection found in 42 percent of non-Hodgkin lymphoma samples could shed new light on the genesis of these blood cancers that have become more common over the past 30 years, said Baylor College of Medicine scientists in a report in the March 9 issue of The Lancet, a British scientific journal. About 55,000 new cases of the disease are diagnosed annually.

    “This is an important finding because cancers with a viral cause offer the possibility of developing new and better ways of treating and diagnosing and ultimately preventing the tumor,” said Dr. Janet Butel, chairman of the department of molecular virology and microbiology at Baylor and senior author of the report.

    “This study further demonstrates that humans can be infected by SV40, an infection that was not suspected in the past,” she said. SV40 usually infects rhesus monkeys. However, in the 1950s and early 1960s, some batches of polio vaccine became accidentally infected with the virus. The vaccine was then given to millions of people worldwide. Because some patients with SV40-positive tumors were born after 1963 and would not have been exposed to the contaminated vaccine, it appears that SV40 continues to spread among humans in ways that are not yet clear. Recently, evidence of SV40 infection has also been found in human brain tumors, tumors of the lining of the chest and abdomen (mesothelioma), and osteosarcomas.

    In their study, Butel and Dr. Regis Vilchez, an assistant professor of medicine and first author on the report in The Lancet, analyzed samples from 154 patients who had lymphomas and found 42 percent positive for SV40 DNA, whereas many control samples were negative.

    Dr. Adi Gazdar, a colleague at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, performed a similar study that confirmed the presence of SV40 in samples of non-Hodgkin lymphomas. His study also appears in the March 9 issue of The Lancet.
