GET UP OFF YOUR KNEES; A Prequel to Orthomolecular Medicine
Excerpt from Chapter 22 Refining Darwinian Evolution Through the Prism of Optidose-Orthomolecular Nutrition.
[align=justify]It has been hypothesized that the beginning of man started in the warm oceans of the Southern hemisphere with a coastal aquatic ape. When these primal apes arrived at their coastal destinations their GLO molecule was already deactivated. The lush semi-tropical or tropical vegetation along with the food obtained from the oceans was more than enough to compensate for their inability to synthesize ascorbic acid. Besides ascorbic acid the oceans offered nutritive rich foods high in iodine and omega-three fatty acids, which would play a crucial role in the acceleration of their neural pathways.
Since these apes were semi-aquatic this would possibly explain why humans are relatively hairless and have more than an adequate amount of fat under their skin. There are a few other traits which further support this claim such as the downward-pointing of the nostrils. The amount of fat on our newborns, the way we hold our breath (this also helps with our vocalization). Former NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration) scientist Dr. Paul Robertson has provided additional evidence supporting Homo sapiens aquatic origins. 1) Webbing between fingers (other primates don’t have this), 2) Subcutaneous fat (insulating from cold water), 3) Control over breath (humans can hold breath up to 20 minutes, longer than any other terrestrial animal), 4) Loss of body hair (hair creates drag in water), 5) Instinctive ability to swim (human babies are able to do this). 6) A highly developed brain, which depends on nutrients provided by seafood. It is hypothesized that the aquatic phase of evolution took place more than 5 million years ago. Since then, Homo sapiens have had five million years to re-adapt to a terrestrial life. Another characteristic acquired by the semi-aquatic apes during this aquatic phase of evolution was the beginning of a complex social structure.
Paleoanthropologists, for at least a century or more, have been searching for the skeletal “missing link” (transitional fossil connected with human evolution). Over time it may very well be proven that the coastal aquatic ape is the missing link. The likelihood of finding skeletal remains is at best dubious because these primal apes lived in close proximity to the oceans. Therefore the remains of this transitional fossil or “missing link” would have stood an outstanding chance of being consumed by the coastal oceans in which they inhabited.
As the oceans began to recede due to climatic changes, it has been hypothesized that these coastal aquatic apes branched out into two groups. The first group began to migrate inland from where they came from eons ago. From time to time it has been speculated that this second group of semi-aquatic apes remained close to the oceans. It is believed that over time these semi-aquatic apes evolved to become a totally marine species.
As the first group moved inland, the accumulated effect of the micro-evolutionary changes had these once semi-aquatic apes evolving into Homo Heidelbergensis. It is hypothesized that Homo Heidelbergensis had retained their 48 chromosomes from their ape ancestors. With this number of chromosomes it is suspected that these hominids needed an optimum level of nutrition to sustain their high metabolism. As they continued to migrate inland they experienced weather extremes that caused droughts and famines. In these environmental extremes Homo Heidelbergensis could not sustain a level of optimum nutrition. The continued exposure to dietary deficiencies increased the vulnerability of these hominids to a whole range of diseases.
As a result of being exposed to these environmental extremes and with the inability to synthesize ascorbic acid and having a niacin DNA repair process which was inundated do to an ever increasing accumulation of micro-evolutionary mutations, there was still a robust sub-population of Homo Heidelbergensis that branched off to become Homo Neanderthalensis. With 48 chromosomes, studies have shown that the Neanderthal anatomical structures, especially their large brain needed more energy to survive than any other species of hominid (except for the Cro Magnon’s). Their energy needs were up to 100–350 calories more per day compared to modern human males weighing 68.5 kg (151.0 lbs.) and females 59.2 kg (130.5 lbs.). When food became even scarcer, this difference of having a high caloric intake may have played a major role in the Neanderthals' extinction. The Neanderthals were the first to branch off of the Homo Heidelbergensis line; there were to an additional two more branches off this line. They were Cro Magnon and Homo sapiens. Cro Magnon had 48 chromosomes like their cousins Homo Neanderthalensis. Cro Magnon was not as strong and skilled a hunter as the Neanderthals.
Just like their Neanderthal cousins, Cro Magnon, also, had a high metabolism. They would consistently have trouble satiating their high metabolism nutritionally during environmentally hard times. It has been further hypothesized that when the Neanderthals left Africa for Europe, shortly thereafter about 40,000 years later Cro Magnon pursued a similar migratory path. Eventually, over time these two species would co-exist. The Neanderthals were not strong nurturers of their young. If a Neanderthal infant happened to be born during the hunting season, to make sure that all Neanderthals could participate in the hunt, infanticide (probably the killing off of female babies was the norm because they weren't as useful in the hunt; evidence: a male population 10% greater than the female population) was periodically practiced to relieve the female adult of child rearing obligations. Cro Magnon’s were tolerated because they were better nurturers of their young. They would periodically take in an abandoned Neanderthal infant when the situation warranted it, especially when the Neanderthal infant was left alone to die. Evidence has revealed that on occasion the Neanderthals practiced cannibalism. One would imagine this practice of cannibalism was a last resort when the local environment could not supply the optimum nutrients to sustain their high metabolism. For the last several years Antonio Rosas, a Spanish paleontologist, has been investigating El Sidrón. This is a site where paleontologists believe Neanderthals were practicing cannibalism. Rosas says that the growth patterns in the tooth enamel of the cave's inhabitants show clear signs of periodic "nutritional stress" - meaning starvation. It has been speculated that over time the Neanderthal population was dwindling away because of inadequate nutrition, infanticide and cannibalism. In a desperate attempt to replenish the population, breeding with Cro Magnon’s was attempted. This attempt yielded only a modicum amount of success. When Homo sapiens arrived on the scene in Europe the Neanderthal’s and Cro Magnon’s were near extinction.
It has been hypothesized that there was a small branch of Cro Magnon’s which did not migrate with the other group of Cro Magnon’s. This particular group remained because they were able to retain some of the nutritional habits of their ancient ancestors, the coastal aquatic apes. As they migrated farther inland away from the coastal oceans, they could not consistently eat an optimum nutritional diet to compensate for being hypoascorbemic. As a result, this group of Cro Magnon’s became susceptible to a whole range of subclinical scurvy type diseases. This branch of Cro Magnon’s was dying at an accelerated rate. For reasons that cannot be explained something very unusual happened. The evidence is quite compelling that Homo sapiens evolved from the fusion of two chromosomes that reduced the chromosome number from 48 to 46. “How this happened is not known,” according to Ron Baker, PhD from the Argonne National Laboratory outside of Chicago, Illinois. From an Orthomolecular point of view these Homo sapiens were severely nutritionally deficient. As a result they developed a genetic disorder that occurs at a rate of 1/1000. What happened was the fusing of two chromosomes. The human chromosome 2 is a fusion of ape chromosomes 12 and 13 with most of the same genes. Cro Magnon now became a Homo sapien. The fusion that happens in the human chromosome (the fusion of two chromosomes) is a disorder that causes handicaps and even the death of the individual. The best-known example is Down’s syndrome. Scientific experiments so far have revealed that chromosomal fusion delivers no benefits; on the contrary it produces unhealthy mutants or infertile individuals.
It is hypothesized that the fusion of the human chromosome 2 did confer some benefits to these Homo sapiens. The first being the slowing down of their metabolism; a slower metabolism meant a lower caloric intake of nutrients. This change made these Homo sapiens more resistant to famines. To counteract the usual deleterious effects of chromosomal fusion for reasons that can’t be explained (this may be a good example of Interventional Evolution) the GLO molecule was reactivated by a transition point mutation. The last time the GLO molecule was activated was when the inland apes were in the process of migrating to the coastal oceans.
An active GLO molecule temporarily created a new species now called Homo sapiens Ascorbicus. This new species became virtually disease resistant. The downside of the GLO activation was that there would be no accelerated neural development. At this point in human evolution accelerated neural development was not a crucial need. Homo sapiens Ascorbicus had, through the course of evolution, developed a stable social structure along with good nurturing skills for their young. Until Homo sapiens Ascorbicus could replenish their population there was no need to have accelerated neural development.
The day finally arrived when Homo sapiens Ascorbicus became a vibrant and flourishing species. The evolutionary urge to migrate now came into full swing. The Homo sapiens would be more prepared physically and socially than their Cro Magnon ancestors when they would begin their northward trek. When they began to leave the confines of South Africa the GLO molecule that brought them back from near extinction would be deactivated once more. It is hypothesized that the deactivation would again accelerate neural development. Accelerated neural growth would allow Homo sapiens to adapt to new environments and learn to find alternative sources of ascorbic acid. Being hypoascorbemic would once again be a scourge that Homo sapiens would have to contend with.[/align]
