Dr. Prather says that Folic Acid, Zinc, and Fiber are the three biggest dietary deficiencies he sees most commonly in his patients. In this episode, we talk about:

--The reasons why we are deficient in each of these nutritional requirements (and each one has a unique reason).

--Why the suggested daily requirement of Folic Acid is different in Dr. Prather's model compared to the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) standard. Plus, why Folic Acid is important for preventing Cancer and for fighting Cancer.

--The importance of Folic Acid in preventing birth defects. And how the birth control pill depletes Folic Acid in a woman's body.

--The symptoms of Folic Acid deficiency, including: anemia, anorexia, fatigue, depression, constipation, digestive disturbances, swelling of the tongue, growth impairment, headaches, insomnia, memory impairment, paranoia, and restless leg syndrome.

--How stress, vegetarianism, and diabetes cause Zinc deficiency.

--The symptoms of Zinc deficiency, including: osteoporosis, anemia, stunted growth, infertility, lack of taste, acne, alopecia, anorexia, depression, impotence, diarrhea, brittle nails, eczema, high cholesterol, infections, irritability, memory impairment, GERD, stomach upset, and night blindness.

--What white spots on your fingernails indicate about your body's Zinc levels.

--Why Dr. Prather says doing G.I. Stool Kit testing really highlighted how much of a problem we have with fiber deficiency. And the shocking numbers of what we SHOULD have versus what we ACTUALLY have in terms of fiber balance in our gut.

--Why Dr. Prather says "the one nutrient that makes the biggest difference in everybody's health is fiber." Plus, how every single vitamin and mineral is absorbed better with more fiber in your system.

--How more fiber will ALWAYS cause weight loss and "almost always cures Type II Diabetes". And how we could reduce both Cancer and Cardiovascular Disease by 65% if we had the right levels of fiber consumption.
