"Nature does not produce vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, or any other food components in concentrated or segregated forms, but merges and blends them synchronizes them for the body's needs. The idea that "if a little is good, more is better"' leads to ingestion of mega doses of "'high potency", refined, separated "nutrients", dismantled, disassembled, or artificially manufactured chemical supplements. This will ""work" for a short time pharmacologically stimulating or suppressing. Eventually, this method backfires and causes complications, imbalances. The body works to eliminate the excess and what it perceives as foreign, non-food. It attempts to combine the isolated chemical and other members of the complex, which normally appear in food, taking rather than giving. Such supplements do not contribute to health, they only disrupt it. Balance and function not quantity are the keys."

"One of the biggest tragedies of human civilization is the precedence of chemical therapy over nutrition. It's the substitution of artificial therapy over natural, of poisons over food, in which we are feeding people poison in trying to correct the reactions of starvation."
Dr. Royal Lee - founder of Standard Process, January 12, 1951
"The assumption that human technology could improve on the wisdom of Nature has become a primary cause of disease in the modern world. We dissect food, take out the most glaringly obvious parts, attempt to recreate them in a laboratory, and label them as "active ingredients.” In fact it is the symphony of nutrients working synergistically that provides the quantum healing power of whole foods."
"American Journal of Natural Medicine", September 2002, Patrick Quillan, PhD.
"We have drifted into this deplorable position of national malnutrition quite inadvertently. It is the result of scientific research with the objective of finding the best ways to create foods that are non-perishable that can be made by mass production methods in central factories, and distributed so cheaply that they can sweep all local competition from the market. Then, after there develops a suspicion that these ""foods" are inadequate to support life, modern advertising steps in to propagandize the people into believing that there is nothing wrong with them, that they are products of scientific research intended to afford a food that is the last word in nutritive value, and the confused public is totally unable to arrive at any conclusion of fact, and continues to blindly buy the rubbish that is killing them off years ahead of their time."

"If you go on a diet and omit all the fat and eat your starches and carbohydrates that you get in these refined cereals you will be putting more fat on your back that you can't get rid of ... Sugar and flour are the first things to throw out in the diet because they are pure calories and don't contribute anything but fat to the body. Starch goes into fat. Sugar goes into fat. If you want to fatten a pig what do you give them? You feed them a lot of corn, cornstarch."
